It's a Krul Krul summer*

Following the high-profile signings of Parker and Emre, a less trumpeted arrival at St James's Park. Tim Krul, a young Dutch international 'keeper, has been snapped up from Den Haag.

I know only what has appeared about Krul on NUFC.com, but the fact that we've been prepared to offer a three year deal to a 17-year-old suggests he's a fine prospect - though, of course, astute judgement isn't always something you associate with Souness and Shepherd.

So much for investing for the future - what's desperately needed now is investment in the present, starting with a new defender and a new striker.

*Because what the world needs is more puns on Bananarama song-titles...
