Simpson Gets 70 Minutes With Reserves – Ready For West Ham


Danny Simpson put in another 70 minutes of solid play in the Reserves 4-1 win over Bolton Wanderers yesterday, and has declared himself fit and ready for the first team game at West Ham on Saturday.

Danny Simpson – declares himself fit and ready for West Ham

Writing on the official site today Danny said the following:

“Hopefully I’ve proved my fitness now and I can maybe push to get into the squad and travel with the lads to West Ham on Saturday.””I’ve played three games for the Reserves now – Aston Villa, Blackpool and Bolton – and I’ve had no problems. My fitness has improved by the game.”

“The first match, I could tell my fitness wasn’t quite there but on Tuesday I felt like I was getting up and down easily. I also managed to set up a goal for Phil Airey and it’s nice to get an assist at any level.” “We have Wednesday off, so I’ll train again with the lads on Thursday, and try and give Chris Hughton something to think about!”

“I know it’s not going to be easy to get back into the team – James Perch has played every league game so far and Ryan Taylor has played twice in the cup and scored both times! But competition is a good thing.”

“The way I look at it, it was my place before I got injured and now I want it back. Last season I was playing to keep my place, and now I’m in a different position of trying to win my place back, but I’m hungry for it.”

It seems that there will be duel between James Perch and Danny Simpson for the right back position for Saturday, and we wouldn’t  be at all surprised if Danny starts that game, and a win is what we badly need on Saturday, against the team currently at the very bottom of the Premier League.

    I reckon babysitting Andy Carroll is tiring Kev Nolan out, and Andy keeps throwing the monopoly board over.

    “It seems that there will be duel between James Perch and Danny Simpson”. Pistols at dawn then? No competition as far as I can see.

    Moreno, don’t think so mate. Kev’s letting Andy win. He wants to be fit to play on Saturday.

    Don’t be silly boys, everybody knows footballers don’t play Monopoly, apparently getting £200 for passing go doesnt even cover the agents fee!

    NUFC_Richyg01, nice one…

    … Except. No Nolan unless he gets an injury between now and Saturday, he won’t be left out by Hoots and I have a funny felling that Carroll will start on the bench (if at all) on Saturday. I think he has other things on his mind and would be a risk to play.
