Last week was a bad week for Newcastle United fans, as we had to wait a full 8 days until yesterday, before the wrongs of the Bolton Wanderers game could be put right.
Danny Simpson – tussling with Ashley Cole yesterday
But put right they were, with an excellent display from the team, and at least when they screw up as they did last weekend at Bolton, they seem determined to make up for it.
And credit to the team and to manager Chris Hughton for always seeming to come back well after a sub par performance.
The defense got the plaudits yesterday, and the two center-backs got deserved accolades, but not mentioned too much was Danny Simpson at right back, who had another solid display for the side.
Danny had to improve this season to become a bona fide Premier league player, and that’s exactly what he seems yo be doing.
And it’s also good to know we seem to have four quality center-backs and also young Tamas Kadar coming through, and after the next couple of games it will be very interesting to see who gets the start in Newcastle’s central defense, once Williamson and Coloccini return from suspension.
Newcastle are well stocked in central defense, and with Jose Enrique continuing to play well in almost every game, we seem to have a couple of good full backs at the club too.
We didn’t want to forget Danny Simpson, who continues to get the job done for Newcastle, and who knows – at the end of the season he may even have broken into the full England squad.
