For those of you who have trouble taking this after so long – we have to warn you up front that this article could be considered another positive one related to Newcastle United. What’s going on? 😀
Danny Simpson – we need more pictures of this lad in black and white
Apparently Danny Simpson has been so impressed by life at Newcastle United and he just seems to love everything about Newcastle United.
After jut 2 weeks on Tyneside, and after talking as though he’s been at the club for 10 years, that doesn’t really surprise us – but it’s still great to hear!
And Danny has no doubt made an impressive start to his Newcastle career, turning in a few classy displays already, as we’ve made good headway already in the Championship promotion race. Yes – it’s early days yet and we certainly need to keep it up.
And this news has to reflect well on Chris Hughton and the way he’s brought the lads together, and that has manifested itself big time on the pitch, as the lads never know when they are beaten – shades of when the great Bobby Robson was at Newcastle.
Danny said yesterday, while at the launch of our nice looking blue and black (or should that be black and blue?) strip:
“I’m loving it – I’ve been here for 10 days and I love the way things are going,” “I know I’ve only been here for a week or so but I’m really happy – moving here for good is something I’d like to do. It’s a massive club.”
“I’ve come here on loan but I want to play week in-week out now, and I’m not put off by the uncertainty.” “To be honest I’ve not even noticed any of the supposed uncertainty or chaos. Obviously I heard rumours before I came but I’ve come up and it’s been totally normal for me – no different from any other club.”
“The players have trained just like any other club, the staff are just the same and you wouldn’t know that all this other stuff is going on.” “The players are playing together and everyone is on a high at the moment. Morale is good and we just want things to keep going now.”
That’s a credit to the coaching staff on Tyneside right now, and the fighting spirit is now there for all to see – just look at what happened Wednesday night.
But it’s so very unlike last season isn’t it? Good.
