Tim Krul is worth considering for your goalkeeper position as Newcastle face Crystal Palace at home in Week 3.
The majority of you will own Thibaut Courtois at around £5million in the Yahoo game, and you certainly shouldn't be selling him at that price, but that does not mean the Chelsea keeper is a top pick in Week 3 with a tough away game at Everton. Newcastle are at home to a Crystal Palace side struggling to adapt to life after Tony Pulis, and the ever-reliable Krul can be picked up for a very reasonable £6million. A good alternative.

Tim Krul was the big hero in the Netherlands' 4-3 win against Costa RIca in penalties.

The Netherlands and Costa Rica went 120 minutes without scoring a goal and future Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal made a very controversial change in the last minute, inserting Tim Krul in for Jasper Cillessen for the penalty shootout. Krul went on to save two penalties, proving to be the hero the Netherlands needed in this match. Robin van Persie, Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben, and Dirk Kuyt all scored for the European side. We are now set to see two Europe-South American semi-finals that are both expected to be extremely entertaining. The Netherlands face Argentina and Brazil faces Germany.

Despite losing 3-0, Tim Krul has a pretty solid match. He made a number of strong stops but couldn't save his teammates from losing their sixth consecutive match.

There were a number of fine saves but none more emblematic of the evening than Tim Krul's save on Olivier Giroud who was in alone on goal. An apparently still rusty Mathieu Debuchy played Giroud onside despite him being five yards beyond the closest defender on his side of the field. That put Giroud in pretty much alone on goal. Krul came out nicely and saved two Giroud attempts that he should have scored. The second of the two bounced kindly to an offside (but not called) Mesut Ozil who only had to tap in for the goal. Krul did everything you could expect on the play but still Arsenal scored.

Tim Krul returned to action on Saturday but his presence wasn't enough for the Magpies as Stoke won 1-0 at the Britannia.

Krul's countryman Erik Pieters scored his first goal as a Stoke player and it appeared to be a mistake. Pieters seemed to be attempting to cross the ball. The goal was not only Pieters' first for Stoke but his first in six years. That about sums up Newcastle's luck recently. The Magpies have lost four in a row and have failed to score in all four of them. It's going to be a busy summer, especially if injured forward Loic Remy isn't brought on full-time from Queens Park Rangers.

Goalkeeper, Tim Krul, is expected to return this weekend after missing Newcastle United's last two matches.

Newcastle has conceded eight goals in his absence. While he can't compensate for other injuries, or the mentality of a team with nothing to play for, Krul's return can help Newcastle regain some pride against Stoke City this weekend.

Newcastle goalkeeper, Tim Krul, injured knee ligaments against Everton in midweek, and will be out for the next three matches.

Newcastle have had a bit of an injury crisis recently, and this doesn't help. Robbie Elliot will deputize. Davide Santone is in contention to return against Southampton, and Loic Remy will be back in training next week.

Tim Krul could not repeat his heroics from the reverse fixture, as Newcastle went down 4-0 at home to Tottenham.

Newcastle are on a horrible run of heavy defeats and it's hard to see where their season goes from here. No danger of relegation, but also no chance of Europe and no sign of confidence since the loss of Yohan Cabaye to PSG, it's a difficult spell for the club and the fans. The light at the end of the tunnel is the return of Loic Remy from suspension for the Week 27 clash against struggling Aston Villa, a game you feel Alan Pardew's side must win if they are to turn things around and secure a respectable top 10 finish.

Tim Krul missed Newcastle United's 2-1 loss to Cardiff in the FA Cup, but should return for Manchester City's visit to Tyneside on Sunday.

Krul missed out with a shoulder injury after colliding with Cheik Tiote, but manager Alan Pardew expects the Dutch keeper to be back at the weekend. Robbie Elliot would be on stand-by to deputize again, but neither are good fantasy options this weekend.

Tim Krul made four saves as Newcastle cruised past Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Yohan Cabaye, a Danny Gabidon own goal, and a Hatem Ben Arfa penalty were the big highlights as the Magpies won their sixth in their last eight Premier League matches.

Tim Krul counted an exceptional stop on a flurry of attempts in front of his goal as he kept a clean sheet and got a road win at White Hart Lane.

Spurs consistently tested Tim Krul on Sunday but the Dutch keeper was up to the task allowing Newcastle to ride a first half Loic Remy goal to an unexpected road win. The outcome continued two trends - Spurs inability to score and Newcastle's impressive run of form. Newcastle followed up their victory over Chelsea in Week 10 with a win over Spurs in Week 11 - heady times on Tyneside. Spurs, on the other hand, failed to score for the second match running and are in danger of squandering their fast start to the season for a lack of goals.

Tim Krul finished his first week of training and is on-track to play in Newcastle's pre-season matches against Rangers and Braga.

Robbie Eliot has done well in Krul's absence, but Newcastle fans will be boosted by the news of his return. Krul has been a solid fantasy keeper and comes in this season reasonably priced. If the Magpies can find their form of two season's ago, Krul will see lots of investment again.

With their pursuit of Julio Cesar stalled, Arsenal are turning to Tim Krul to challenge for their starting goalkeeper role.

Tim Krul would cost more than Cesar, but is significantly younger. Newcastle may be willing to sell and put their faith in Robbie Elliot, who deputized well for Krul, but that would be a risk for the Magpies. It would also be a bit of a gamble for the Gunners as we haven't seen Krul play in the most high-pressure of situations.

Tim Krul is hoping to play some part in Newcastle United's pre-season schedule and expects to be ready for their opening match against Manchester City.

Krul claims to be "right on schedule" and his return would be a big boost to the club before the new season.
