My latest piece on metro.co.uk was published earlier today.

Called ‘Tim Krul – the best performance by any goalkeeper this season?,’ it is my usual look back over the week-end’s game on my other Newcastle United blog. As the title suggests, it is mostly about Tim Krul’s performance in goal on Sunday, which pretty much overshdowed everything else.

Krul’s fourteen saves in one saw the Flying Dutchman breaking the OPTA’s record since they began collecting Premier League stats back in the 2006-7 season.

You can read the story by following the link below.

    Thank god for another great performance by a Newcastle keeper. The last time l saw someone play that good in goal, was again away at Spurs, in around 1967 when we won, again 1-0, during a mid-week fixture. Then Mcfaul was in goal and played a blinder. Spurs had Greaves, England and Mackay. We had one break and scored the rest of the game was one way traffic. I am not sure how many saves Iam Mcfaul made but it must have been close to Tim’s premier record 14

    Bob, I don’t know if it’s the Premier League record but it’s the highest ampunt OPTA have collected since they started doing it in 2006.

    I’m not quite old enough for Jimmy Greaves but I know it was a very rare occaision when he didn’t score. His secret was six pints, a roast beef dinner and a quick blast of amyl nitrite before a game.

    “That injury list is looking good!”

    You’ve done it now Grumpy! I’ll bet that Loic Remy pulled his hamstring or did his groin in just after you wrote that.

    You may want Virgin to supply your cable TV or Broadband, but would you want them deciding whether you live or die when you’re stuck in a geriatric ward undergoing “end of life care?”

    The future is going to be horrible.
