New Blood: Tim Krul

Having already played for the first team against Palermo in 2007, it would be difficult to brand Tim Krul as new blood for the club, but it`s his paucity of appearances so far that puts him in the 'yet to be seen properly` category. Following loan spells at Carlisle and Falkirk the keeper has admitted he wants to start the season as Newcastle`s number 1 (which could be difficult given the current man between the sticks is one of Big Al`s golf partners...)

Speaking to the Ronnie, Krul said:

'I don't see any reason to leave Newcastle United - why should I? It's my first priority to start the new campaign as first-choice goalkeeper. I am willing to take up that challenge. We want to get back to the Premier League as soon as possible, and I hope to play a major part in it. That would be wonderful.

Relegation is a devastating blow to the club - I think Newcastle will have to start from scratch. Relegation did not come overnight. Four coaches were in charge here in one season, which speaks volumes. Yet, at the end of the day, the squad is responsible. We have enough quality players, but somehow we never operated as a team
