    1. No-one. I was referring generally to any player.
    2. Players may make short-term career decisions based on who the manager is..

    Fair enough, I was referring to him though. Yeah, players make short-term decisions, but I think a player making a decision on his international future is going to say to himself "it might take me a couple of years to establish myself here, and the manager will probably be gone within a year, so I'd be mad to let it affect my decision." Then again some footballers are mad, but Elliot seems fairly pragmatic about not committing himself.

    Goalkeeping coach Alan Kelly put that to bed yesterday by saying that his counterpart at Newcastle, Andy Woodman, had been in touch to let him know of Elliot's availability.
    I didn't comment at the time, but I read Elliots comments, simply as, he has just started playing regularly for a premiership side, and wanted to establish himself there, as it would be prudent - somewhat cheeky - to start flouting himself as an international keeper, but at the same time if he was called up he would be delighted. I think those comments above suggest that.

    Deep down that could be as simple as knowing that, he is behind Forster and Hart wont be undone at England level, but I think what he said was very fair.
    I'm a bloke,I'm an ocker
    And I really love your knockers,I'm a labourer by day,
    I **** up all me pay,Watching footy on TV,
    Just feed me more VB,Just pour my beer,And get my smokes, And go away

    i'm a newcastle fan and i'm not mad about elliot. he's only played a handful of games due to krul's injury and while he's done ok this season, he did not convince when he appeared last season.

    on the plus side he's only 26 so improving and there is decent goalkeeping coaching at newcastle.

    Rob Elliott

    Couldnt find a thread on this lad. Has seen alot of time for Newcastle in recent months with Krul out injured.

    Problem is for every good game he seems to have, he seems to be matched by a not so great performance. Sent off today in a big game for the toon after an excellent performance against West Ham the previous week after conceding six to Pool the week before that.

    Although we have a number of options, we dont have any stand out goalkeeper who looks set to grasp the No 1 jersey for the foreseeable future. Elliott probably deserves some consideration. However, he is young in goalkeeping terms and is likely to be on the bench for alot of next season when Krul returns.

    Only just notice that Elliot is playing today as Newcastle are 1-0 down to Southampton. Krul is out for three weeks and possibly the season after being injured in the massacre to Everton.

    Fair play. Positive sounds coming out of him.

    A few good insights in this article (even if it isn't recent); his father's family is from Cork, his family support England in cricket but Ireland in football and Darren Randolph is his best friend in football (having been at Charlton together).

    I think he is example to other older players who might want to represent us. While foregoing a stag party may not be the greatest sacrifice in the world, at least it is indicative of a player who seems genuinely interested in playing for us. It is in stark contrast to him who can't be bothered answering his phone to his national coach!

    Elliot set for a run in the Newcastle first team, Kruhl retruns from international duty with elbow ligament damage: http://www1.skysports.com/football/n...gament-damage-

    <EDIT>

    never mind, Newcastle hope Kruhl will play this weekend: http://www1.skysports.com/football/n...ter-elbow-scan

    Kept a clean sheet tonight and made a good stop to deny Stevan Jovetić as Newcastle knocked Manchester City out of the League Cup with a 2-0 away win.

    Rotten luck. Gets a run in the team owing to Krul's absence and he's picked up a thigh injury that will keep him out until mid-January at least.

    Krul out injured again, this time for the whole season, so Elliot should see time in goal for Newcastle
