Tim Krul Now Officially Number One

9 years ago

Tim Krul is clearly Newcastle United’s number one and now he has the shirt to prove it.

In reply to fan queries, Krul has confirmed via Twitter,

“For the fans who have been asking about my squad number, it’s right I have changed my number from 26 to number 1 for the new season”.

Old timers will tell you how much better it was in the old days when players  lined up 1 to 11 and you knew by their shirt number where to find them on the pitch.

Now of course you have players picking numbers right up to 99, bit of a lottery if you ask me.

Best news of all though is that Tim Krul seems totally committed to Newcastle United and speaking to people who have met him on the current pre-season tour, you hear only good things.

At this moment he clearly believes that he can achieve both club and country ambitions via Newcastle United, would love to think he’ll be around at least as long as Shay Given was.

If you need inspiration for a birthday (or any kind of) present why not get them the new DVD, or something equally class from The Mag’s Amazon Store, or why not treat yourself!
