Tim Krul has hos most productive season ever at Newcastle, and made his breakthrough into the first team, appearing 25 times between the sticks for Newcastle last season.
Tim Krul – good season for Newcastle
Graeme Souness brought Tim to the club back in the summer of 2005, when Tim was just 17 years old, and he now talks with a unique Dutch Geordie accent, and appears to be completely and totally committed to the Newcatsle cause, and is a big favorite with the fans.
Tim was born in The Hague in Holland, and played very well last season and had some very good games, but like very goalkeeper in the world he also made one or two mistakes.
But Krul is still improving, and he could well become a top International goalkeeper as well as the Newcastle number one for years to come.
The Dutch lad only turned 23 last month, and has received a well deserved call-up to the full Dutch squad, and we expect him to make his debut in the Dutch side during the next week or so.
Krul talked about his exciting season to the Newcastle main web-site today:
“It was a good season for the team and for me,” “We finished 12th, which we would have taken that at the start of the season.””When you are so close to a top ten finish then it is a little disappointing but in reality we should all be delighted with what we have achieved.”
“I loved this season and I cannot wait for next season to come already. I’ve had a great season this year – I played 25 games in total and am more than that. I just hope I can keep hold of the number one spot now.”
“It’s been more games than I expected, so I’m really happy with that, and I’ve proved that I’m more than capable of playing in the Premier League. Hopefully the manager chooses me again in the summer and I can fight for that.”
“I am going away on international duty, which will help me develop even more as a player, and then I just want to work hard over the summer to be fit for pre-season. Hopefully it will be another year to remember for me and for Newcastle.”
Tim Krul so far has 34 appearances for the Newcatsle first team, and will fight it out for the number one goalkeeper position in pre-season with veteran Steve Harper, and returning Hexham-born Fraser Forster, who had a successful loan spell at Glasgow Celtic.
It;s anybody’s guess who will be number one, and when we announce the winner of the Player of the Season award tomorrow, w;ell put up another poll asking readers who they think will be number one next season.

May 31, 2011 at 8:44 PMComment #87
Apparently 1 spainish team has had a bid accepted for him and 1 other PL team has had a bid accepted for him by Lille. Apparently one other one has European football.
Davey boy is full of sh*te it seems

May 31, 2011 at 8:49 PMComment #95
All irrelevant if he has already made his mind up
May 31, 2011 at 8:49 PMComment #96
Have asked Barton if theres any truth in liverpool story…………………………………………no reply
May 31, 2011 at 8:50 PMComment #97
cwarr07 should be banned from twitter for life haha
May 31, 2011 at 8:50 PMComment #98
All these twitter heads are attention seekers, they read a snippet and then go on and on as if they’re the players bloody agent.
I honestly don’t care what these lads say EXCEPT cwarr, this is his do or die moment. If neither N’Zog or Gervinho end up in a Toon shirt he’s lost all credibility.
On Barton I’d take 4.5 as its only a million less than we paid four years ago, depreciating asset and all that. If its only 2.5 keep him and he’ll be a key part in our progress next year.

Won`t be Barca or Real, Valencia can`t afford him and Gamerio leaves Sevilla or Villareal my bets one of them?
May 31, 2011 at 8:50 PMComment #100
I asked him awhile ago but his last tweet before I had said he was going out for his tea so dont get too upset haha
May 31, 2011 at 8:51 PMComment #101
or he should be kneecaped!!! lol
May 31, 2011 at 8:51 PMComment #102
Sevilla and Arsenal for Gervinho. Ohh well worth a try. Onwards to plan B. Not the end of the world 🙂
May 31, 2011 at 8:51 PMComment #103
i’ve said all along we wont get gervinho and gameiro. we must learn how to walk before we run. we need to get european spot before we can think about those players.
for now. id be delighted with gradel, ba, nzog and ashley williams.
May 31, 2011 at 8:52 PMComment #104

May 31, 2011 at 8:52 PMComment #105

May 31, 2011 at 8:53 PMComment #107
cwarr07 will say it fell through last minuite like all the others he has said before that were %100.
May 31, 2011 at 8:54 PMComment #108
You are right maybe NUFC are setting their heights a little high.
May 31, 2011 at 8:55 PMComment #109

May 31, 2011 at 8:55 PMComment #110
n e 1 follow kevin nolan on facebook???
Probs sum little loner pretending but his status quotes – “Praying that Barton renews his contract!” as reliable as “shitter”
May 31, 2011 at 8:55 PMComment #111
Better hurry up and get Cabaye signed up before someone comes hunting for him!
May 31, 2011 at 8:56 PMComment #112
haha Jack in all fairness he might be ignoring us both haha.
toonbelmonter he might be there having tea? hence the rumours going around 😉
May 31, 2011 at 8:56 PMComment #113
Guys if this sudden interest in Gervinho is from ”Nufcinsideinfo” on twitter why are you taking their word over another twitter source?
How much credibility have they over Cwarr07 or fur10ng?
To be honest I dont 100% believe either until there are some firm facts, but to say one is wrong cause another person says something different!
May 31, 2011 at 8:56 PMComment #114
told use earlier were getting ditmar van nostri boy, from plymouth,thats who cwarr07 meant wen he said gervinho haha…….
May 31, 2011 at 8:57 PMComment #115
Hoilett i`d love here try and steal ollson off them aswell.
Plenty more fish in the sea.
May 31, 2011 at 8:59 PMComment #116
seriously like why did nobody at the club push gervinho into a definte yes are no??? bunch of clowns as usual.
May 31, 2011 at 9:00 PMComment #117
haha I love this the rumours of the rumours being wrong and everyone is gutted…the power of twitter
May 31, 2011 at 9:01 PMComment #118
fur10ng is an idiot. He said earlier 10.5m 5yr contract on 60k for a deal on gervinho then said later on when asked how much some one else would cost no idea, i cant know things like that
May 31, 2011 at 9:01 PMComment #119
calm down every one, loads on here dismiss twitter when someone tell us we’re signing this player or that player, but as soon as someone on there says that we’ve missed out on someone, everyone on here take’s it as gospel
May 31, 2011 at 9:01 PMComment #120
Twitter makes a twatter out of people lol
