If  Danny Simpson is as good as we think he is, we would love to see the lad sign permanently for Newcastle, which may even be an option for us in January.

Danny Simpson – Newcastle will always be bigger than Sunderland

In a no holds barred interview with the Evening Chronicle today, the full-back claims the Magpies will always be bigger than our Tyne-Wear rivals,  Sunderland.

We’re sure Sunderland fans will agree with that. :D

That’s also interesting because Danny did well when he was on loan at Sunderland in 2007.

Danny told the Evening Chronicle today:

“I prefer to be in black and white than red and white.”

“On the way up here a lot of people warned me about what was going on behind the scenes, but I have not noticed it.”

“Someone mentioned Sunderland had 41,000 against Chelsea – and we got 43,000 against Sheffield Wednesday.”

“That just shows the passion the fans have for the club – it speaks volumes.”  “We have more fans than them coming to Championship games.”

“I am just glad to be here. Sunderland is behind me now – that was years ago.”  “I am just looking forward to doing the same at Newcastle and getting into the Premier League.”

We love the “we” in Danny comments above, as he already seems to have settled in as a proud Newcastle player.

Simpson also hinted he would like to make his move to Tyneside permanent, as he talked about the loudness of the Geordie crowd:

“It is right up there. I have played at Old Trafford, but I think it was louder here.”

“The fans are incredible here. Even though it was only 43,000, it felt like it was full.”

“I enjoyed it, and it was a nice feeling when the whistle went and we had won.”

“Palace is a chance to win. We are travelling down there after back-to-back wins and looking to make it three.”

“We want to keep the run going.” “They went to Ipswich and won. They will now be hoping to get something out of us. But we are buzzing and we will not let that happen.”

“I have been around the lads and trained and it is like being at any other club. The lads have put it to one side, and I think it shows by the way we are playing.”

“We want to do it for ourselves. We cannot affect what happens upstairs.”

“The lads are buzzing and we want to get out of this league.” “If I do well you never know what could happen in January.”

Danny will indeed have to do well, but we could potentially get a good deal on the player, and we cannot complain about his attitude, that’s for sure.

The lad was born in Salford, but that must be in Northumberland – right? :D

We wonder why it is that we’ve already taken a huge liking to this 22 year old?

Comments welcome.

    If we get him for cheap then yeah get him in in January. Right now though we’ve got him on loan and we need to be looking at permanent transfers! Lovenkrands and Campbell need to be snapped up right away! I don’t get it. Even if the new owners (even if they bloody do buy it) don’t want those players, they were for free and they can sell them on once they come in! Ashley please not only authorise signings, but make an active attempt to make them!

    If we sign good players now and win our games then the club is more attractive to buyers and Ashley will get more serious bids. Honestly he just doesn’t think about these things.

    Let’s hope all this doesn’t sicken him.

    Crikey, if Lovenkrans (?) is mulling a move over, what does that say about how all things NUFC affect perceptions?

    @ Dan 4 Toon

    Howay youngin.

    Get a grip!!

    Do you not know the answer now?

    Ashley has deliberately delayed the decision to sell the club for months now!!

    Blatently obvious! Why?

    So he can sell, and not buy!!!!!!!!

    You sound young. I’m experienced in life.

    Forget about Monday.

    Ashley will remain as owner and players will be sold!!

    Believe in experience!!!
