Danny Simpson Ready To Take Right-Back Spot Back

There was good news last night as both Danny Guthrie and Danny Simpson had their first run-outs of the season for the Reserves against Aston Villa, after both have finally returned from injury.

Danny Simpson – glad to be back

Simpson said today.

“I’m just buzzing to be back, and hopefully I can kick on from here,” “I’ve been training for three weeks, and to finally get out and come through with no niggles was brilliant. I felt good.”

“I didn’t feel anything, or suffer any other problems. Sometimes when you come back from injury, you feel your hamstring, or your muscles.”  “I’m just glad to have done 75 minutes. I’ve never really been injured in my career – maybe a month at the most – so it’s great to be back.”

“I’m just looking forward to getting back now and playing in the Premier League.” “It’s been a bit of a test, but it’s made me stronger, and made me want it even more,”

“I knew there was something wrong with my ankle, but I didn’t know how serious it was.” “I thought I’d only be out a couple of months, but it’s turned out to be six months.”

James Perch has played in the right back position so far this season for Newcastle, and while he’s looked solid in some games, he has been seen to lack the class and experience at the top level,  in other games.

But we have to think that James is becoming a better player the longer he plays in the Premier League,  but now he will have to fend off a big challenge from Danny Simpson, now that Danny’s fit again.

Danny had a very good first season in the Championship for the Magpies, and he’s a good lad, who is just longing to show people he is a Premier League class player.  It’s good for the club that he’s back, and he will no doubt be pushing for a start at right back as soon as possible.

And it’s also good to have Danny Guthrie back fit again , as the 23 year-old Shrewsbury-born player can add some competition to our central midfield players like Barton, Nolan, Tiote and Smith.

And certainly the competition for places at the Newcastle club is as keen now as we’ve known it be for many seasons – and that’s got to be very good.

Comments welcome.

    I have to say I thought he was a bit of bling boy, but I was very impressed with his conduct on Soccer AM of all places, he may not be Premier League standard but I still like Danny.

    In the absence of Benny and the welcome return of Dannytwosome, rethink needed for Wigan assuming Saylor still not available,
    Simpo/ Willo/ Colo or Solo/ Enriqueo
    Guthrie/Barton/ Jonas(as a mid 3)
    Nolan(he won`t be dropped) or Lovo for me

    Subs: Colo/Sol?/Shola/ Lovo/Smith/Routs/Perch/Keeper Kid- can`t spell his name, S—–?

    if we could morph Perch and Simpson into one player we’d be laughing, maybe do the same with RTaylor and Routledge too.

    I see on NUFC.co.uk, they are running a poll for the Carling Player Of The Month (September)

    I think it would be a huge boost to him if we all vote for BEN ARFA
