Danny Simpson – A Touch Of Class And Commitment


There’s good news and bad news about the players we have brought in this summer.

Danny Simpson – touch of class

The good news is that Danny Simpson and Peter Lovenkrands are class players who will give their all for the Tyneside club.

The bad news is that we only have brought in two.

Fans were hoping for some loan signings coming in this week, but it doesn’t look like that will happen, and knowing how the current regime works whenever the last day of the loan season is in November, will probably see some signings from  the club – but of course we hope it’s long before that.

But concentrating on the positive side of things Danny talked about what he expects in the Championship this season:

” We have to be prepared because the Championship is a physical league and, for opposing teams, Newcastle is going to be one of their biggest games of the season,”

“Hopefully the fans can understand that we can’t always play pretty football.” “This is the Championship and it’s not easy – sometimes you have to dig deep and soak up the pressure.”

“But that’s great for team bonding because you have to pull together.” “Obviously we’d like to win 3-0 every week, but in reality it’s not going to be like that and the lads know that.”

Winning is the name of the game, and the fans don’t expect “pretty” football all the time, but the more wins we can get before Christmas, the more enthusiasm will be seen on Tyneside, and the bigger the home gates will become.

And the way the lads have been playing, we still have to play some of the poorer sides in the league, and we may just be able to run up some big scores, which we’ll need to enhance our goal difference.

But talking about “pretty” football is interesting, because that’s how Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock described the Newcastle play when we tore his team apart 2-0 in London on 22nd August.

We need to make it a little easier for Danny Simpson and the lads though, by bringing in say 3 additional loan players – soon – and as long as they are the class of Peter and Danny, we’ll have no complaints.

    I don’t know if he’s really a touch of class sorry but he’s decent and is fitting in well.

    Yes. I cannot wait until Sunday.

    I must admit, England looked good today. Even if at 2-0 a horrendous decision did kill the game off. 2-1 would have completely changed the game imo.

    Dragonera,
    hey mate,
    yea, Capello has undeniably got way more outta this set of players…Foreign coaches are defo the way forward, they just change the mentality & that’s what it’s all about at that level, isn’t it?

    …What was the decision at 2-0?..I musta missed that, i’m at work!..
    …Their goal had an offside in the build up tho’, didn’t it?..
