Newcastle Player Flies Home For Birth Of Baby Girl


News today that defender Danny Simpson has flown home to England.

Danny Simpson – flying home overnight

The right-back was given permission by Newcastle manager Alan Pardew at lunchtime yesterday, even though Newcastle are losing players on the tour with injuries, and also three players being turned down for US visas.

Ryan Taylor, another right back, was taken out of the Orlando City game last night, which Newcastle lost 1-0, after just 25 minutes, and we’re not sure what his status is.

The Sunday Sun is reporting Danny was allowed to leave for personal reasons, and it seems those personal reasons were that his baby girl is due.

Simpson wrote on his twitter account:

“Flying back to the UK today. Wanted to play the next two games, but I want to be home in time for the birth of my baby girl.”

Well there you have it, it is because of the imminent arrival of his baby girl.

We must say that Pardew seems to be the consummate man-manager, and of course he will be hoping the players will give him back their full commitment in return.

With the mounting injuries, we are hoping this will show the Newcastle hierarchy the squad is just not big enough for the Premier League.

Bu that’s a hope that will, in all likelihood, go unanswered.

Comments welcome.

    @Mr.T

    Haha, wouldn’t surprise me at all.

    Btw, Apparantly Vuckic and Enrique have slight Injuries, and Raylor picked up a knock aswell… Might aswell replace the Definiton of Fragile with a photo of our Squad instead. 😛

    Hoping it aint anything Serious…

    10million for Nzogbia is a bargain. Considering that i highly doubt Ben Arfa will get more than 10 games for us next season and will be on the medical room more than on the field, Nzogbia will be a very good signing.
    Even in Ashley’s business sense, 10million for Nzog now and he can sell him for about 25million next season if he does well. That’s about 15-20million possible profit.

    indianmagpie- we have 5 players injured this pre-season already, all we get off club is they took them off as a precaution, then you hear nothing else how bad they are, in the case of ben arfa pardew says 3 weeks out, we will see soon who is speaking the truth, the two players that went off in the darlington game, has there been any updates on there injuries no, that was 2 weeks ago

    @ thai mag- pardew has not said 3 weeks. Those are the rumours we have heard from us fans been told by arfa. There has not been boy official statement from the club regarding arfa’s injury. Regarding guthrie and fergi, i remember pardew saying that he ‘s afraid that guthrie might be out for 6 and fergi 4 weeks. I am not sure on this though.

    Hope we don’t get erdinc – just have this feeling he’s not a toon player. We need a figure head player – not necessarily expensive just someone who can turn a game and someone who can get the fans back onside.

    as it stands Ameobi remains the best striker at the club in my opinion.

    belfast, not looking forward to the Gooners game either, just hope this lot pull their fingers out and get the forwards and defensive cover needed before the window shuts.

    The big problem going into this season may end up being psychological.

    When we beat Liverpool 3-1 in december it felt like we were in the ascendancy, only a couple of months later they comfortably beat us – they had restored belief and were moving in the right direction, you could see how our heads had dropped – that needed massive surgery in the summer to fix, and I’m not sure we have done that… couple of defeats on the trot and I think this squad will crumble.,

    also despite your Arfa or TOTAL football wahey fantasies – there is a distinct lack of goals in this side.

    Who played LB in the first half, tbh looked like Colo had to most of the time and he had a fine game imo.

    boater, we definately have a lack of goals atm, I think Erding will do ok though but he isn’t going to fill the number 9 shirt imho.

    We are not going to fill the No9 shirt unless we see Ashley spend big money as no one at the club or any of the players we’re being linked with are good enough to wear it

    The number 9 shirt should be locked up until Sammy or Airey earn it. We won’t buy anyone to fill it so let’s build someone who can…..NOT RANGER
