    You are correct, he had just turned 17 when he signed for Newcastle in July 2005. We played that game against Newcastle the following March a month before Krul turned 18. Think we had the likes of Joel Lynch and Joe Gatting playing for us.
    LuaLua was in that team for Newcastle coming off the bench. It also makes Krul an HGP.

    To be fair, it was Joe Gatting that got us to the 5th round when we beat Blackburn. He equalised and then scored the winner in extra time.

      Of course but then begs the question- why did he sign for us last year if that’s the case. All prem league clubs have # 2 and #3 keepers in the same boat. Someone has to do it and many are happy to.
      I would think the situation is different now as he possibly thought that he would get the No 1 spot at some time but now knows that he wont and being a year older must look to his future and I believe that if a promoted club or one expected to be near the top of The Championship next season came in for him he would have to seriously consider the offer. I would think that Maenpaa falls into the happy to be no 2 or 3 bracket.
      Well he might get all sorts of offers. But there are 20 #2 keepers in the Premier League . All of whom might get a chance to show their worth in cup games, to fill in for short notice injuries (ask Nick Pope) and prefer that to being #1 keepers in the Championship or elsewhere. Like it or not , some players are happy to fill that extremely well paid role especially at a club like , er, the Albion.

      Re: third keeper iirc when giving Casper another year Hughton said that in many ways third keeper us it's own specialised position. Of course it was probably just a nice way of saying he's not good enough but he helps out in training doesn't cause any bother and if it looks line he'll end up playing more than half a game we'll be getting an emergency loan in.
      A club also needs that many keepers for training matches, and training drills. You don't want your ACTUAL keeper all roughed up from diving about all the time, facing a couple of hours of shooting practice.

      Ever the optimist, there speaks someone still on the concourse when the boys are having their pre-game shooting practice.

      The Premier League tends to publish all the retained lists about a week into June so at least we'll find out the official list then.

      Krul isn't on loan, we converted the loan and signed him permenantly just before the Newcastle game back in September.



      I'm not sure why a few people seem convinced that Tim Krul is interested in a move "home".

      He has been playing in England since he was 18, and apart from a couple of loan spells (and international football) he has not played much football in Holland at all, infact he's played more games in the Scottish Premier League than he has in the Dutch Eredivisie. His wife is from Newcastle and I am fairly certain his daughter would have been born in England, maybe like Steve Harper's wife they've not been able to settle in the south and want a move back to Newcastle while Tim considers his options on another year here or not.
      Couldn't have put it better myself, the Dutch as a nation seem to love coming here, and in fact Tim may well consider himself an honorary Englishman by now. If he has to go 'home' from time to time, then the Netherlands is less than an hour away. All things being equal l can see him remaining here for at least another season. I hope l'm right anyway.

      Surprised at Niki Maenpaa being happy to stick around as a number 3 keeper really. After all, we have seen him wearing an Albion first team shirt far more than we have Tim Krul, and from what l have seen he looks a very good keeper

      If he was that keen on playing regular first team football, I feel sure a team in the EFL would find a place for him.

      Was always frustrated with Rohan Ince, He has the potential to be a Lion but plays like a Lamb most of the time.
