Tim Krul and the Newcastle United defense delivered a fantastic performance against Manchester United, keeping the Red Devils out at Old Trafford to earn a point in a 0-0 final.
The opening half hour was all Manchester, peppering the Magpie goal, but the Dutch keeper was on his A game today, eventually stopping eight shots, many of a high quality nature. Also impressing was the play of Fabricio Coloccini, who made a splendid tackle on Memphis Depay near the end of the first half. The attack had their chances, with Aleksandar Mitrovic making his first start and looking an aerial threat, heading one off of the bar. A late counter by Papiss Cisse and Ayoze Perez nearly stole all the points at the end, but Newcastle should be feeling quite pleased with the result today regardless. Aug 22 - 9:54 AM

Newcastle's defense was poor in week one, allowing Southampton two goals at home and almost giving up another late in the match.

Southampton had 14 shots in the match and almost stole all three points in stoppage time, when Sadio Mane had two opportunities to take the lead. Newcastle's defense was not at all impressive and they travel to a dangerous Swansea side in week two. Tim Krul and the defensive line in front of him are not good fantasy options for this week.

Tim Krul stood between the sticks for Newcastle United last weekend, as Manchester City ran roughshod over them with five goals, but his terrible day has resulted in an extreme price drop.

Currently available for under 3.5m, Krul has seen his price plummet by over 4m in one change. Between last week's result and the injury crisis they are facing, suggesting him seems like a fool's errand on the surface. But considering they are hosting Aston Villa, if they are capable of keeping an opponent out, this provides there best chance of doing so. Breaking it down from a points per pound perspective, he is level with the likes of David De Gea, Fraser Forster and Hugo Lloris. There is inherent risk in putting him into your XI, but if you need to find a cheap play somewhere to free up cash, he should be considered.

Newcastle United are happy to have Tim Krul back in training after their #1 had been sidelined with an ankle injury since late November.

Jak Alnwick was thrown into the fire and got burned pretty good, as the Magpies conceded 8 goals over their last three league matches. Lucky for them, they managed 4 points in that span anyway. While his return gives a lift to all Newcastle defensive options, a trip to Stamford Bridge this weekend is not an opportune time to use any of them. It may be in the club's best interest to seek out a loan spell sometime this month to serve as a better backup to Krul, who has a history for getting injured more often than your average keeper.

Tim Krul picked up a knock in training this week and remains a doubt for Newcastle's trip to West Ham United tomorrow.

Krul's status is considered "touch and go" but if you have a deadline before the Magpies team news comes out, you cannot trust Krul to start and unless you have a viable backup, you are taking a major chance in playing him. Rob Elliot would deputize should Krul sit tomorrow's match out.

Tim Krul made three saves to help lift Newcastle to its fourth straight win.

Krul had a couple shaky moments, but did what he needed to do to earn the shutout. Krul started out the the 2014-15 season with just one clean sheet in the teams first seven games, but since then has secured three clean sheets in his last four matches. With matches scheduled against QPR, West Ham and Burnley over the nexxt few weeks it's time to give Krul a look. After this stretch of games their schedule gets rather difficult.

Tim Krul notches his second clean sheet of the season and enjoyed a rare productive fantasy day, but the odds are he will not be able to keep it up over the next few weeks.

At home against a promoted side is usually the best recipe for a clean sheet for clubs that normally struggle to keep them, and that is exactly what Newcastle did to Leicester City over the weekend. Unfortunately, the Magpies travel to Tottenham next, then host Liverpool, then a trip to the Hawthorns where the seemingly unstoppable Saido Berahino will be waiting for them. Krul cannot be recommended for any of these fixtures and you should have another option in place if he is currently in your squad.

Newcastle number one and Dutch international goalkeeper Tim Krul has returned to the club after picking up an elbow injury while training with the national team.

Krul arrived on Tyneside following Fridays’ win over Kazakhstan where the World Cup penalty hero was an unused substitute with United manager Alan Pardew sweating on the availability of his ever-present goalkeeper, especially given their current Premier League plight. The return of Krul completes a trio of international injuries with Daryl Janmaat and Paul Dummett [both hamstring] leaving their respective training camps although the pair are expected to be in contention for the Leicester game. Republic of Ireland international Rob Elliot is on standby to make his first league start of the campaign, the goalkeeper has already expressed concerns about his lack of game time and may consider a summer move if his opportunities remain limited.

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.
