Danny Simpson played a solid game in his debut last night for Newcastle.
Danny Simpson – played well last night
Danny Simpson seemed to enjoy his debut, and says that playing in front of a huge crowd at St James’ Park (43,908) has instantly left him wanting more.
Simpson made his debut last night after joining Newcastle from Manchester United on loan until January.
The 22 year-old Salford-born defender has played close to 70 first class games in his career, and hopes for another win at Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Simpson, who is best friends with fellow Newcastle player Danny Guthrie, said today:
“When you are playing in front of 43,000 fans the noise is incredible.” “As a debut it was perfect for me.”
“We’ve got the clean sheet and picked up three points, that is the main thing for me.”
“When you come into a team that has won excellently against Reading and won 3-0, you are worried that you might not keep that run going.”
“But I am pleased we didn’t concede and picked up the win.”
Danny seems a good lad, and he’s an excellent technical player who is at home either defending or moving forward.
We think he will play a lot of games for Newcastle in his loan spell, which hopefully can be extended until the end of the season, if he does as well as we think he will.
But he’s an excellent addition to the Newcastle squad.
