Newcastle Players’ Girlfriend Reveals Magpies’ Plans?

4:18 pm, Monday, November 19th, 2012 by Ed Harrison · 24 Comments

One of our readers sent us the full tabloid piece on Danny Simpson from The Sun last week. and it seems that Danny has got himself into a bit of a mess to say the least, but that’s the way he’s chosen to do it – so we’ll not comment on his personal problems.

Danny Simpson – girlfriend reveals wages and no contract

His girlfriend Stephanie Ward, who is the mother of their 16 month old baby girl Skye, and is said to be pregnant with a second child by Danny, has revealed some things that may point towards what Newcastle’s plans are for Danny Simpson.

First of all it looks as though he’s on £20K a week at Newcastle, but that seems a lot, and when he got his contract in January of 2010, the news was that it was about half that amount, with the Magpies then in the second division.

And the news was that Newcastle were willing to offer him £30K a week on a new fives year deal last year, but he’s turned down those offers from the club.

25 year-old Stephanie has revealed that Danny has told her he doesn’t have a club:

“I haven’t got a club — they’re not renewing my contract in May — how are we going to afford another baby?” “But he’s on about £20K a week and comes out with around £10K after tax. (50% tax – wow!). He’s just really bad with money.”

It seems that Danny can spend money easily, which may be a clue as to why he’s trying to get the biggest wage possible for his new contract, and if he cannot get it from Newcastle, it seems he would be willing to move to another club to get it.

Danny’s a good player, and we still hope he will sign along the dotted line for Newcastle, but it also seems like he’s getting himself into a lot of trouble with his personal life.

But that’s his business and we’ll leave it at that, but it could well be that Newcastle will unload the player in January, especially if we can get Mathieu Debuchy through the door..

    As many brains as a head of lettuce – providing the slugs have been washed out!!

    I can see where there coming from money wise i mean these days who can raise 2 kids on measly £10k a week? Barely leaves the poor lad enough cash to get the train down to london meet his favourite chav!

    All I will say is that this story has come from an angry Ex via the Sun newspaper. There will likely be elements of truth, but lets not assume she’s being completely honest.

    Either way, if he does go and is replaced (this is the key here) then would anyone really mind? I have been pro (ish) Simpson, but know he can be improved upon.

    What would be bad is him leaving and no new FB coming in.

    Other than that….next.

    Ibiza wash your mouth out that is no way to talk about the statistically best FB in the PL

    Combine that with the fact you could prob wager that simmo has span her a fair bit of bullschizen prob safe to say its not the most factual story ever printed!!
    Personally think simmo’s regressed this season first game looked solid then got injured came back looked good but has got worse every game

  • 6 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Nov 19, 2012 at 4:49 PM

    Tequila…..Sorry, must have used Kets’ mouthwash this morning….

    Tads….Really we need not look any further than the name of the newspaper! Not sure if he has regressed really, he’s always a bit hit and miss really. I imagine he has other things on his mind, contract, ex, kids and who is the best dressed on the x-factor. Tough life.

    Hmm true maybe he should stop think about getting the most boring BJ in the world and concentrate on trying to get a new contract instead of whinging about it all the time didnt he try and use the contract thing to dodge a driving ban?

  • 8 Super Magpie // Nov 19, 2012 at 4:52 PM

    Oh no, we only earn £10k a week, how ever will we survive?

  • 9 tequilamag // Nov 19, 2012 at 4:53 PM

    Ibiza apology accepted if you can explain to the blog why Willo is a great CB.

  • 10 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Nov 19, 2012 at 4:54 PM

    tads…I believe he did. Maybe the BJ’s are better when not being filmed, however, she doesn’t appear to suffer from stage fright normally…unless that is the answer to her lack of talent (across the board)?

    Anyway, we’re getting sidetracked and whilst I normally don’t mind that, Tulisa, voice of a new generation, gangster, doesn’t get any space in my head.

  • 11 Super Magpie // Nov 19, 2012 at 4:55 PM

    And Think of the children!!!! The poor bairns…
    How will they cope with that amount of money.

  • 12 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Nov 19, 2012 at 4:57 PM

    Tequila….I think I best brush my teeth or something first, as I may get this one wrong too. I’ll give it a go though….

    Because he was included in some persons team of the season so far?

    Great CB – :) – You are a playful one

    Super…Well we all know that barely pays to put food on the table on a weekly basis!?!?!

    Mind you, the 50% tax is a joke. But that’s a different discussion for a different blog – we should probably sort NUFC out before we try and tackle the government.

    Come on TADS, the guy is entitled to quality bj’s . Have a heart will ya ? :)

  • 14 Graeme // Nov 19, 2012 at 5:01 PM

    Ibiza – I’m sorting you out with a date mate – evidently Danny is tied up for a few days next week, so I put you down as a suitable stand-in!!

    Anything for a friend!!

    If hes after qualitie he’s prob hanging round tulisa in the hope nicole scherzinger has a few too many and thinks hes lewis hamilton

  • 16 Crawfordladd17 // Nov 19, 2012 at 5:03 PM

    Yet my familes income is £80k a year and we aren’t doing to badly. Yet he gets over half a million pound a year(after tax)

  • 17 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Nov 19, 2012 at 5:05 PM

    Graeme…I wouldn’t wish that on an enemy. I’m starting to question if we’re friends after all :)

    Tads…Quality? Scherbloodyannoyingger? Right, let’s move on….

  • 18 Mister Tuff // Nov 19, 2012 at 5:11 PM

    No wonder he does not seem to be progressing -if he’s dashing off to London, dashing off to Manchester -he will need extra wonga for the flights, hotels, dining out etc etc. All in pursuit of a lady of questionable morality -clearly he is a cad who has succumbed to temptation. It will end in tears.

  • 19 GeordieDan // Nov 19, 2012 at 5:13 PM

    Haha

    Some funny comments on here today.

    Quality :D

    My heart bleeds for them……must be really hard, I don’t know how they’re gonna manage

  • 21 puretoon // Nov 19, 2012 at 10:43 PM

    I’ll be glad to see the back of him. he’s a shite egotistical fat greedy rb- or should I say posing as a right back! and yes I said fat cos he’s getting bigger and that’s not just his bloody head!

    It seems too that he was seen in the X Factor audience Sat night too-well seeing he got subbed cos if he’d played full 90 mins he wouldn’t have seen his tart.
    And yes, how’s he gonna manage on such a small amount?? greedy bastard.

  • 22 Sav // Nov 20, 2012 at 3:20 AM

    C’mon lads, its only Mashley’s money. Some of ye are commenting like Simpson’s 20k were coming out of your own stash which is not only mathematically improbable but factually untrue.

  • 23 HullMag6 // Nov 20, 2012 at 7:56 AM

    Kieron dyer in disguise?

  • 24 stretchintoon // Nov 20, 2012 at 2:34 PM
