Tim Krul – We’ve Got No Fear Going To Liverpool

Let’s just whisper it – but if Newcastle can get their first win at Anfield in 17 years on Friday night – we’ll be back up to 6th place in the Premier League,  and just one point away from 4th place before the Saturday games.

Tim Krul – has had great season so for for the Magpies

Liverpool are just one point and one place above Newcastle in the league at the moment, and the game at Anfield could be a corker.

If we are to get anything out of this game,  the Newcastle defense will need to be as solid as they were at Bolton, and Tim Krul may have to be at his very best too, which is world class these days.

There’s no doubt that the 2-0 win at Bolton was a big big win for the team, and it was one of those games where the result was more important than the display, after Newcastle had gone six games without a win.

Tim Krul has been huge for Newcastle this season, and he seems to be improving all the time, and Tim can become one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League by the end of the season, if he isn’t that right now.

Tim has come out today and said Newcastle don’t fear Liverpool:

“It was a great time to get the win,” “The 30-point mark was important, and to get there after 18 games is a fantastic achievement.”

“That can give our confidence an extra boost for the next game against Liverpool, which is a huge one.”

“We’ve got no fear going there. We can’t have any. We have proved we can match any team in this league and that will be the same again on Friday night.”

Newcastle are almost back to full strength again and with Mike Williamson in central defense and able to head those crosses clear, the Newcastle defense could well become very solid again after a few hiccups since the Chelsea game.

Davide Santon is available again, although Alan Pardew doesn’t often change a winning side, so it’s possible he could start the same side that started at Bolton, and bring on Ben Arfa again as an impact sub some time in the second half.

But he could actually start Santon, and it probably depends on how the players perform in training today and tomorrow.

But it would be very nice if Newcastle can take something out of the game on Friday, and a win would set us on our merry way again.

Howay the Lads!!

    I have really tried to support ashley and take a balanced view but these guys are serial liars !!

    PS: NUFC MD Derek Llambias, speaking on BBC Radio Newcastle, November 11th 2011 (before Steven Taylor’s season-ending injury):

    “We have had an exceptional year, and long may it continue, but the fans want us to buy more players.

    “We need to bring in a striker in January, we will need replacements in the summer and we need to give ourselves as much as possible.”

    We can win this one. We’ll get 2 goals (BA, HBA), hope it’s not a 3-2 thriller. I still can’t watch that ‘best game ever’ in the PL, too painful.

    We havent not bought a striker yet so they arent liars yet. Pardews follow on comments makes me think its a message saying we wont be ripped off. If he came out and said we are desperate for a striker it would be a bit daft wouldnt it?

    Derek Llambias said ” Defensive cover was our main priority for the January window but now we have signed XXX we have been able to look again at strengthening our forward line. After very difficult negotiations we have made a successful approach for ZZZZ. We feel we have secured a very good deal within our transfer policy and look forward to ZZZ having a successful career with Newcastle United.”

    Na cyprus, the best game ever in the PL was a 4-4 draw. Forget who was playing. But it was bloody exciting.

    Btw Ed,
    didn’t know about Kenny’s charity work, have always blamed him for our demise from greatness (bringing his 40 year old buddies etc), but I do see him in a different light now. Still, Liverpool fans aren’t too happy with his coaching 🙂

    Let’s pick up the 2 outcasts from Man City, Onuoha (3m) and Tevez (pay a fee to have him on loan, until AC stump up the cash in the summer) then we’d be really fighting for a European spot.

    Typically positive comment from GG then?

    Did you know “Geordie” German that it was more than 25 years since we last beat a team away on Boxing day as well-until a couple of days ago?

    FFS man grow some bollox-we CAN win and without Suarez Liverfools aren’t half the team.

    Rotonda heights – are you a fortune teller?

    The transfer window hasn’t opened and you are slagging off Llambias and Ashley for not signing players.

    You fkn idiot.

    Bolton have scored more goals than Liverpool and we kept them out at their ground. Liverpool are struggling to score and without Suarez we have a good chance of a clean sheet if not maybe only letting in 1 or 2 goals. With that in mind I think we have a good chance of getting at least a point as if liverpool only score 1 goal then we’ll get at least a 1-1 draw if not a 2-1 win as Demba will score at least 1 as always :). My only worry is that maybe Carroll or Gerrard will decide to go mad on this game as Gerrard has been out for a while and has Andy even scored this season yet?

    When we sign a LB and striker before the window shuts for c£12M-£15M – which we definitely will – that will be c£24M-£27M spent this year


    and you are calling others a fkn idiot!
