... and will cement Tim Krul as a Geordie legend.

Krul became just the seventh goalkeeper in Premier League history to pick up a 'Player of the Month' award.

Newcastle United’s unbeaten November was more than enough to land the club both of Barclays monthly hours, as Alan Pardew was named manager of the month.

Krul allowed just two goals in the four Magpies wins and was spectacular in back-to-back clean sheets versus Chelsea and away to Tottenham, the latter of which featured a record 14 saves.

They also defeated Norwich and West Brom at St. James Park.

The Dutchman is the first keeper in three-plus years to earn the monthly honors, joining a select list that includes Mark Schwarzer (Fulham, 2010), Petr Cech (Chelsea, 2007), Paul Robinson (Leeds, 2000), Alex Manninger (Arsenal, 1998), David Seaman  (April 1995) and the only man to win the award twice in Tim Flowers, who won it with Blackburn in 1997 and Leicester in 2000.

Pardew is the first NUFC manager to claim the monthly honors since Sir Bobby Robson in Oct. 2003, but he won it with West Ham in 2006.
