Steve Mcclaren admits Newcastle will nowlose 18-20 points due to injury to Krul

Quote:
Steve McClaren says Newcastle have lost “20 points” due to the season-ending injury suffered by goalkeeper Tim Krul, leaving them on -17 this campaign.

The Holland international will sit out the remainder of the campaign after damaging an anterior cruciate ligament in his country’s Euro 2016 qualifier in Kazakhstan on Saturday with Rob Elliot ready to stand in for him.

“It’s a massive blow for us,” McClaren said. “You’re talking about one of the best players in our team. He’s a vital player, very important, and he’d get us 18 or 20 points a season with the way he plays,” the former England boss added, simply trying to one-up Arsenal claims that Petr Cech was worth 13-15 points a season.

“To lose that is devastating. We’ve had a couple of days to get over it, but for him, the shock of starting to get injured is starting to appear. In the last day or two, he’s been a little bit down, but that’s football and he’ll recover.

“He’ll get the best treatment and a good operation, and we wish him well with that. In the meantime, it’s time for Rob Elliot to step forward and fill his boots. He needs to step up and perform.”

Krul’s loss could hardly have come at a worse time with Newcastle sitting at the foot of the Premier League table without a win to their name and only three points to show from their opening eight fixtures.

McClaren could be forgiven for bemoaning his luck too after speaking to his keeper earlier in the day and being told he would be on the bench against the Kazakhs, only to then be asked to step in in place of Jasper Cillessen.

The Magpies’ head coach said: “When that happened, people who have worked here for many years were saying, ‘For some reason, it’s always Newcastle’. Here, it just seems to be one disaster after another.

“But you have to get on with it. This is football, and this is what happens.

“I couldn’t believe the text I got on Saturday evening. It was incredible because I’d just spoken to Tim earlier in the day to wish him luck, and he’d said he was on the bench and wouldn’t be playing. I said, ‘Well, at least you’ll be fit for next week’.

“So to get that text didn’t exactly make my night.”
So if Mcclaren doesn't keep newcastle up, like I said he wouldn't, then it's down to this unlucky injury.

The rest of the team must be brimming with self confidence at this news knowing how much faith their manager has in them. Great man management
