Danny Simpson – It’s Another Great Win For Us

Danny Simpson put in another classy display at right back again on Saturday in our great 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.

Danny Simpson – classy player

The on-loan Manchester United full-back played well again as Newcastle made it three clean sheets in a row, and our defense us starting to look good, dare we say.

Simpson has won every game he’s played in for the Magpies and not yet conceded a goal as he told the Chronicle today:

“The main thing for us as defenders is to keep clean sheets.” “If we continue to defend like that we won’t concede many goals.”

“It’s not just the back four, the midfielders and the strikers have played their part.” “It’s another great win for us, we’ve come out of the last three games with three wins which is fantastic.”

“We just want to keep the winning mentality going.” “Palace were buzzing with confidence after their last result when they beat Ipwsich.”

“But we got the early goals and hung on to it.”

Danny seems and talks as if he’s played at Newcastle for years, and he’s already shown what a great professional he is by settling in so quickly at the club, and putting in some fine performances already.

Newcastle were of course given a great start on Saturday as Kevin Nolan scored his first competitive goal for the club on 99 seconds before Ryan Taylor’s first strike stunned Palace, before the half-hour mark.

Danny thinks this was one reason for the three points, which had the 3,559 Newcastle fans in attendance in great spirits at the end of a pulsating game.

Simpson added:

“We said before the game how important the start was and it was a good start by us.” “We knew it was important to do that because their fans are always on top of you and right behind them.”

“Playing Newcastle is a big game for them.” “So we knew we had to be better than them right from the off.”

And talking about the the goals from Nolan and Ryan Taylor, Simpson said:

“It was a fantastic finish by Kev.” “We wanted him and Danny Guthrie to get forward like that and it was the perfect run by Kev – it was also a great finish.”

“Ryan’s got in with a great strike too.” “It was great for him because he wanted a birthday goal against Sheff Wed and he was unlucky.”

“Now he’s got one and what a goal it was too.”

What we need now from the lads is two home wins against Huddersfield on Wednesday in the Carling Cup, and then Leicester next Saturday in the league.

We need as many wins as we can get this season, to make up for the pathetic performance of the team last season when we could only muster 7 wins.

Comments welcome.

    From what ive seen from him, at the moment he doesnt look like he will win us games, but he wont loose us any either. He is solid which is really the main priority. Given time, confidence will come and we will be getting the assists like Beye.

    I think he knows man utd dont want him and is angling for a decent club, hence the comments about the Mackems, which is good as he will want to play for a contract rather than just play because he was sent here.

    I must confess, I haven’t seen enough of this lad, but everything he has done so far has looked class. Good if we could get him here on good contract. I also like the noises he makes in refering to the toon as ‘us’ and ‘we’.

    I am loving this lad, all we have ever hoped for, he will be a decent player once he is stabilised and gets his confidence up.

    SIMPSON, TAYLOR, CAMPBELL, ENRIQUE – very good Championship Defensive group.
