Tim Krul: Dislocated his shoulder in the derby against Sunderland

The goalkeeper has not played since April after dislocating his shoulder in the derby against Sunderland and he subsequently required surgery.

But Krul has now confirmed he is fit and is hoping to feature when Newcastle take on Rangers on 6th August.

"It's great to be back in full training and I'm looking forward to the game," Krul is quoted as saying in the Daily Star.

Manager Alan Pardew had confirmed prior to Tuesday's friendly win over St Mirren that Krul had been doing well in his fitness tests.

"Tim's had a tough week," Pardew told the Hartlepool Mail. "He's come through that, and we'll have to see where he is. But I've got no worries about him at all."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
