Newcastle keeper Tim Krul to replace Jak Alnwick in starting line-up v Chelsea. Match preview:
AS are reporting that Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has already made up his mind to quit Old Trafford, with the Spain international set to replace Real Madrid No. 1 Iker Casillas at the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season. And the respected Spanish sports daily are also claiming that the Red Devils will replace their young shot stopper with Newcastle United keeper Tim Krul. ~Sank

REPORT: De Gea opt for the Bernabeu with just 18 months left on his current deal. With that in mind, the Daily Mirror suggests that United will make a move for Newcastle's Tim Krul as well as snapping up Valdes in case De Gea decides to move on. Krul was part of Van Gaal's Netherlands 2014 World Cup squad, and has proven himself as one of the Premier League's more impressive goalkeepers while at St James' Park.

Newcastle may make another attempt to argue with the Premier League that they should be allowed to sign a keeper on an emergency loan. Their first attempt was rejected. Tim Krul is injured and Karl Darlow is at Nottingham Forest on loan, with no recall clause..
Newcastle United put on keeper alert Newcastle United could attempt to sign a goalkeeper on an emergency loan – after Rob Elliot joined Tim Krul on the sidelines. Elliot suffered a thigh injury in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Premier League leaders Chelsea at St James’s Park. And 21-year-old Jak Alnwick came off the bench for the second half. United manager Alan Pardew revealed after the game that Alnwick would be in goal for Saturday’s game against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. However, if a scan on Elliot’s thigh reveals significant damage, the club could ask the Premier League if it could take a goalkeeper on an emergency loan – or sign a free agent. Manchester City signed Marton Fulop on a temporary deal from Sunderland in similar circumstances four and a half years ago. League regulations allow such a move outside the transfer window in “exceptional circumstances”. “I’ll have a scan on Monday and hope for the best,” Elliot told the Gazette. “Fingers crossed I won’t be out for ...
Chelsea's quest for 'Invincibility' was brought to a grinding halt at St. James' Park as Newcastle United picked up their third consecutive home win against the Blues, beating them 2-1 thanks to a brace from substitute Papiss Cisse. Chelsea were undoubtedly the better side over the course of the 90 minutes, but failed to take their chances with Willian coming close on a couple of occasions in the first half and Eden Hazard hitting the woodwork in the second. Newcastle lost their keeper Rob Elliot at half- time due to injury and with first choice shot stopper Tim Krul also missing, sent on 21 year old Jak Alnwick or his competitive debut. Papiss Cisse came on in place of Remy Cabella as early as the 53rd minute and took only 5 minutes to get himself on the scoresheet as he tapped in Sammy Ameobi's cross from the left wing after Gary Cahill had made a complete hash of his interception. Newcastle fans were soon in dreamland with Cisse scoring his second into an empty net after some fantastic work on the coun ...
THE BREAKDOWN :NEWCASTLE VS CHELSEA Newcastle United Team News: Arsenal and Manchester United claim most of the headlines when it comes to number of injuries, but Newcastle have had more than their fair share of troubles on that front as well. They currently count nine (10) players out, though Fabricio Coloccini is expected to be fit enough to be available for selection. The nine others who won't be include Tim Krul , Ryan Taylor (injured, AGAIN, sadface), Rolando Aarons , Sammy Ameobi (doubtful), Gabriel Obertan , Davide Santon , Siem De Jong, and Jonas Gutierrez (who's recovering from cancer treatment!). Alan Pardew's season got off to just about the worst possible start, but he and the team have recovered rather spectacularly, winning five straight at one point. The last two games have seen them slow back down a bit, gaining just one point and dropping down to 9th, level on points with Liverpool and Spurs. The numbers now read as such: 6 points ahead of second place, 6 points ahead of Manchester City ; ...

Saints move into top four with win Graziano Pelle takes season tally to four Fans call for sacking of Newcastle manager Alan Pardew Striker Graziano Pelle scored twice as Southampton overwhelmed a poor Newcastle side at St Mary's Stadium. The Italian grabbed his first in the sixth minute when he headed in Ryan Bertrand's cross from the left. And he slotted his fourth of the season after a terrible misjudgement by Mike Williamson in the Newcastle defence. Jack Cork then took advantage of another lapse in concentration by Williamson before Morgan Schneiderlin curled in a superb late fourth. Cork and his team-mates were on top of Newcastle from the first whistle, but as good as they were, they helped in large part by shambolic defending. The visiting backline looked jittery from the very first minute, when keeper Tim Krul's clearance almost went in off Saints striker Shane Long, and they were a wreck by the time of the third goal. Chants calling for the sacking of manager Alan Pardew echoed around the stadiu ...

Goalkeepers are often the butt of jokes and the subject of fan fury but in this World Cup they came into their own, finally taking back some of the spotlight from the strikers. Costa Rica were one of the surprises of the tournament, sending both Italy and England home as they topped their group. Three-time Man of the Match Keylor Navas played a big part in this and made the jump to star after their round of 16 game. Just two days later, it was the turn of US and Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard to take all the attention. His side may have lost to Belgium but as far as social media was concerned Howard’s barnstorming performance was the highlight of the match and deserved serious accolades. His incredible 16 saves during the match also triggered one of the most popular memes of the tournament, Van Gaal had goalkeeping trickery on his mind when he secretly arranged for his sub keeper Tim Krul to practice penalties. Even his starting keeper Jasper Cillessen was baffled when Krul started warming-up in extra-ti ...
What a match Holland - Costa Rica! Van Gaal made the key move to change his goalkeeper, and Tim Krul became a hero!:) ht…
COMMENT By Richard Jolly Even Sir Alex Ferguson lost some. There were days when his choices seemed strange, when his radar went awry. Just when Manchester United could be forgiven for thinking their new manager was all powerful, all knowing and all important, Louis Van Gaal found he couldn't shape his destiny one more time. A penalty shoot-out against Costa Rica had been perfectly orchestrated from the sidelines. There was no repeat against Argentina, no Tim Krul to bring on in the 119th minute, no Robin Van Persie to take the first spot-kick. Centre-back Ron Vlaar, thrust into a responsible role rather than a regular penalty taker, missed it instead. Van Gaal will not arrive at Old Trafford with a World Cup winner’s medal around his neck. The compensation for United is that he can divert his gaze to events in England slightly sooner. Technically, Van Gaal has three more days and one more game to negotiate before his second spell as Netherlands manager is officially over. His is an indirect route to Old ...
Argentina 0-0 Holland (arg winning 4-2 on penalties) Pure defensive game with very few goal scoring opportunities from both sides. Holland very shy offensively .Van Persie was like Fred and the only player threatening when having the ball in his feet was the great Robben. Argentina have improved in the last 3 games with Messi having more freedom on the pitch. Van Gaal did not have the sub to introduce Tim Krul in the penalties. Either way, Romero was a beast.. Interesting final especially that one of the two historical Brazil rivals will win it in the Maracana.
It would have been a different and better story for Holland if Van Gaal fielded Tim Krul. Tim is better than Cillessan in my view.
So Argentina win in penalties! Netherlands may have lost but they won millions of hearts! All tournament Holland played world class football! We thrashed the defending champions 5-1! We saw 5 goals in our match against Australia! Chile, a team that beat Spain and drew to Brazil ; we even beat them comfortably 2-0 without Van Persie! We scored 2 goals inside the last 6 minutes of the game against Mexico to win 2-1! Louis Van Gaal, take a bow ; you got Huntelaar as a substitution against Mexico and he scored and when Costa Rica had frustrated us, you brought Tim Krul as a last minute substitute for the penalties and he saved 2 penalties! We should be proud that we drew to Argentina without our premier striker playing most of the game! Be proud Netherlands, win third place because I know we will!
"I know everyone is now treating Van Gaal like a legend or a magician for that change, but to be honest, it's not something I like very much," "It's disrespectful to the goalkeeper. Who will be the 'keeper in the next game? Imagine going in goal for the next match and realising you do not have the 100 per cent faith of the coach." - Fabio Cannavaro Pagi tadi Louis Van Gaal tidak menggunakan Tim Krul malah mengekalkan Jasper Cillessen utk penalty shootout.. Kemanakah PLAN B beliau ??

Tim Krul reveals what he told Costa Rica players during the penalty shootout.
What can we learn from the Dutch football coach Louis Van Gaal during this World Cup? -1- Be Flexible Van Gaal does not play every match with the same players or system. Every match is a new project and he makes best use of the players he has available and adapts his style of play towards the opponent and the circumstances during the match. He is willing to sacrifice the star players if needed and he dares to reverse prior decisions. This is very different from what we often see in big corporates and even more in politics. Even if all those involved know they're on the wrong path, adaptations are very rarely made there. -2- Be Prepared In yesterday's match Holland versus Costa Rica, Van Gaal brought in Tim Krul, a new goalie, after 120 minutes of play, just to stop penalties in the shoot out. This was rehearsed and planned in advance in case the opponent would play for the 0-0 and try to win, as in their previous match, via the "penalty lottery". By preparing Krul just for this particular task, Van Gaal b ...
Tim Krul's penalty mind games vs Costa Rica. He dived the right way on every penalty!
For GoalKeeper. Try this. Maybe you can do like Tim Krul
There are now just three games and four teams left. The end of this magnificent World Cup is in sight and while I can’t quite bring myself to contemplate a post-tournament world, the completed semi-final line-up pits four true international heavyweights against each other, each with a very real chance of claiming the ultimate prize. The last team to secure their semi-final place was Louis Van Gaal’s Netherlands, and once again the incoming Manchester United manager played an integral part in the victory. Van Gaal had stolen the headlines in the second round when he received plaudits for a late, bold substituition in the game with Mexico. With fifteen minutes to go, Robin Van Persie was withdrawn and replaced by Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. At the time of the switch, the Netherlands were losing 1-0. They went on to win 2-1 with Huntelaar slotting home the winning penalty with seconds left on the clock. Against Costa Rica, Van Gaal was at it again. Seconds before the end of extra- time, the Netherlands boss bro ...

Nigeria may have long been kicked out of the World Cup by France, but the exploits of goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama are still reigning supreme and being re-echoed at the on-going World Cup. Little wonder therefore he has been named in the Top 10 goalkeepers in the World Cup. He is rated the fourth best Goalkeeper in Brazil. 1 Manuel Neuer (Germany) 2 Guillermo Ochoa (Mexico) 3 Keylor Navas (Costa Rica) 4 Vincent Enyeama (Nigeria) 5 Tim Howard (USA) 6 Raïs M’Bohli (Algeria) 7 Júlio César (Brazil) 8 Thibaut Courtois (Belgium) 9 David Ospina (Colombia) 10 Tim Krul (Holland) culled What do you have to say about the rating?

The Guardian califica a Costa Rica de 7) Costa Rica ▲1 It would have been too good to be true if Marco Ureña had put a little bit more on the extra-time shot that Jasper Cillessen thwarted with his legs. It would also have been unfair on Holland, in all honesty, and Costa Rica’s fortune eventually expired at the hands of Tim Krul. But Jorge Luis Pinto’s side were still more good than lucky over their five games. The Colombian devised a structure and style suited perfectly to tournament football, a fluid counter-attacking approach ensuring that a correspondingly deep defensive block never risked appearing stodgy. The result was the World Cup finals’ best underdog story in years, and it will be interesting to see what the future holds for Pinto’s players now. Will the likes of Celso Borges, Giancarlo González, Cristian Gamboa and Óscar Duarte step up effortlessly to stronger leagues, or were they simply horses that perfectly fitted their manager’s meticulously plotted course?
NEIL ASHTON: When Tim Krul began talking about intimidation on Sunday, Holland’s penalty shoot-out hero admitted he crossed the fine line when it comes to sporting behaviour.
Great coach Van Gaal,hes done it good decisons wth bringing up huntelaar and then in the qauters anther good decision bringing up goalie tim krul
Tim Krul substitution: Louis Van Gaal kept Krul intentions quiet – but even jilted keeper Jasper Cillessen approves A “golden grip” was how one Dutch newspaper headline summed up Tim Krul’s penalty-saving feats in Salvador on Saturday night, but it might just have easily talked about a golden gamble. The decision of Netherlands coach Louis Van Gaal to send Krul on for the quarter-final shoot-out against Costa Rica proved quite a masterstroke but even among his players, it came as a surprise. Indeed it seems that only one player had any inkling of what Van Gaal had in store. As Arjen Robben put it afterwards: “Nobody knew about what he was going to do apart from one goalkeeper.” Krul himself had found out “just before the game”. The Newcastle United man, whose saves from Bryan Ruiz and Michael Umana earned the Oranje a 4-3 shoot-out triumph and a place in Wednesday’s World Cup semi-final against Argentina, explained: “We discussed it before the game. He [Van Gaal] said if we had one mor ...

Dutch goalie: Shootout tactic was fair play Netherlands goalkeeper Tim Krul insists he did nothing wrong in confronting Costa Rica's penalty takers during a World Cup quarterfinal shootout. Krul's crucial two saves on Sunday night followed his novel tactic that tested FIFA's guidelines on fair play. The substitute goalie faced up to opponents at the penalty spot and repeatedly told them he knew where they'd place their shots. "I don't think I have done anything wrong," Krul said at a team news conference. "I haven't shouted at (them) in an aggressive manner. I haven't done anything crazy. I just told them I knew where they are going." The Dutch team's 4-3 shootout win after a 0-0 draw set up a semifinal against Argentina. Genius Louis Van Gaal will be at Old Trafford next season, do you think Manchester United will Challenge for the title because of that factor?
Interesting write up on Holland vs Argentina What to make of this enduringly curious Dutch side? Although their shootout win over Costa Rica was just reward for the final 40 minutes’ thrilling bombardment of their opponents’ goal, few would claim Louis Van Gaal’s side look particularly coherent – and, as we saw in the second period of extra time, they will always give you a chance. Van Gaal has deserved credit for his tactical changes thus far – with or without that Tim Krul substitution – and there is certainly a feeling that he is having to do things on the fly with a slightly lop-sided squad of stars and learners. Arjen Robben continues to step up irresistibly; there have strong signs in the last two games that Wesley Sneijder is doing that too. The worry is that Argentina will prove just too practised in São Paulo: the Dutch will need to rediscover the clinical edge that blitzed Spain all those days ago, and will hope that Robin Van Persie used up his month’s quota of fluffed lines on S ...
Newcastle United's Tim Krul came off the bench late in extra time and saved two spot-kicks as Netherlands beat Costa Rica on penalties to set up a FIFA World Cup semi-final against Argentina. Krul saved from Bryan Ruíz González and Michael Umana to send the Dutch through. Get the full story:
Van Gaal hails his best squad Louis Van Gaal has revealed he allows the senior figures in his Netherlands squad to have their say as United's incoming boss celebrated reaching the World Cup semi-finals. The Dutch overcame Costa Rica on penalties after 120 goalless minutes as Tim Krul, introduced ahead of the shoot-out in what has been deemed a managerial masterstroke, saved two of the spot-kicks. Skipper Robin Van Persie and ex-Liverpool man Dirk Kuyt helped motivate the troops ahead of the dramatic conclusion in Salvador. "If a player says something, it hits [home] more than if I do," explained Van Gaal. "Robin and Dirk gave great speeches. That was fantastic but I've felt this since we got together and became a unit at the training camp in Portugal. "So I don't need to check on them, at all. They know exactly when they have to take their responsibilities. It's not about me or the staff but taking responsibility. "In terms of team spirit and togetherness, this is the best group I've worked with. I though ...

Van Gaal has got balls. Subbing Cillessen for Tim Krul was the biggest mind game in football I've ever witnessed, He won the psychological batter at the right time. He sure is gonna give them *** in the EPL.
A lot of been said about the Netherlands. I will be writing about Louis Van Gaal, the Netherlands, Tim Krul and Costa Rica later in the day.
Van Gaal bringing on Tim Krul last night with 60 seconds to a penalty shootout reminded me of those days in O/Level during History & Literature tests and exams when people would get up to ask for more answer sheets to write their essays, meanwhile you you're not even close to halfway through your original set. The psychological effect was intense.
What was everyone's thoughts on the Tim Krul sub last night ? Genius or lucky !!? It's hard to disagree with Van Gaal as it worked so you have to say well done !! But on another note I thought it was very unsporting the way Krul acted in the shoot out - if keepers can stand at the side of the box , stand next to the spot , jog up and down the box doing warm ups then where are the boundaries ? Can they go and sit in the dugout and have a cup of tea ???!!! I thought when he was stood out of his goal the player should have been allowed too tap the ball into the empty net. 2 brilliant Semi finals though . Sticking by Argentina to be the overall winners ⚽️

Netherlands boss , Louis Van Gaal, insists Jasper Cillessen is still his first choice goalkeeper, despite Tim Krul's heroics in the win over Costa Rica.
I don't know who deserves the greater ovation:Tim Krul,who came on at such a crucial time to save his country,or Louis Van Gaal who studied the game well enough to bring him on at that time.
LvG on Last night game : “We said nothing to Jasper. We didn’t want him before the match to be faced with this information because this would have been disappointing,” the coach said. “Every keeper has specific qualities but Tim has a longer reach and a better track record of stopping penalties. We did discuss this with Tim Krul and also the sequence of penalties. Fortunately it worked out. If it hadn’t, it would have been my mistake.” Krul said he knew there was a chance he would come on with penalties looming. “I did not realise it was so late. I had spent the whole match on the bench. We had chance after chance and had not taken them,” he said. “Then you’re suddenly thrown in and don’t have time to think, saved two penalties and now we’re in the semi-finals of the World Cup.” Van Gaal said it was Cillessen who had kept the Dutch alive after the Ajax keeper saved from Marco Urena with three minutes of extra-time to go. “I don’t know how much ball possession and how many opp ...
