Tim Krul: Has been unable to halt Newcastle's defensive woes

After a fifth-place finish in the Premier League last season, Newcastle have struggled so far in this campaign and sit just two points off the relegation zone, having won just two of their last 15 matches in all competitions.

Krul, who gained significant plaudits for his impressive performances last season, believes that his form has slipped as his side have faltered.

"I can't be happy with my performances and it hurts me a lot," Krul said.

"I know the manager has shown trust in me, which is very important, but he gave me the chance here so I hope I can repay him.

"The last two games we've played fantastic stuff, but we've conceded too many goals.

"When you're putting a massive shift in and you've got zero points again, it hurts."

Krul, who has four caps for the Netherlands, has kept just two clean sheets in his 20 games this season, in comparison with 15 in 42 games in 2011/12.

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
