Danny Simpson’s Career Is Over At Newcastle

10:22 am, Saturday, February 16th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 10 Comments

Danny Simpson will leave Newcastle in the summer, when his contract runs out at Newcastle, and it’s a good question as to how many more games he will play for the club in the next four months – we think not too many.

Danny Simpson – Newcastle career is over

With full-backs Mathieu Debuchy, Yanga-Mbiwa and Massadio Haidara having been brought in last month, Danny must be down the pecking order these days at Newcastle, and those three new full-backs are Newcastle’s future – Danny isn’t part of that.

The Newcastle manager had this to say about the former Manchester United defender:

“Danny’s available.” “I have to say that Danny wants to show people he’s a Premier League player.” “So Danny’s in the frame, yes – he will have a role to play.”

“He’s a paid player at this football club – he’s a professional player.” “I expect him, when I call upon him, to do his absolute best for me.” “I don’t doubt that he will.”

It seems that ever since Simpson started dating Tulisa Contostavlos, he’s made the headlines – and most of that has been for the wrong reasons.

First of all we found out that his former girlfriend was pregnant with their second child – but we suppose that relationship is now over for Danny, since he linked up with Tulisa.

And only a few weeks ago there were disturbing photos of Danny lying unconscious outside a takeaway around 5:00 am on a Sunday morning – what had he been up to?

This is not good news for Danny and it’s not good news for our club – and quite honestly we’d be surprised if Danny plays many more times for Newcastle.

And to think Danny had the chance to sign a new deal ion Tyneside, but he turned it down, and now Newcastle have strengthened in his right back position – and now he has clubs like Wigan Athletic and Fulham coming after him – and we assume he wants to be with a London club this summer – to be closer to his new girlfriend Tulisa.

That’s an assumption on our part.

And Alan Pardew’s words are what we would expect from a Newcastle manager – but the real truth is that Danny Simpson’s career is over at Newcastle, and he’s had a lot to do with that.

    My guess is he’ll go to Wigan.
    He likes the NW.

    He’ll only play again if we have injuries.

    He is still one of the best RB’s we have available and it wouldn’t bother me in the slightest if he played against Metalist. Move Mbiwa to CB as he is probably the best CB we have and rest Collo for the Saints game.

    Danny has done well for us over the last few seasons ,he’s always given his all ,so no complaints ,with our new new guys they will take us up another level ,he’s gone as far as he can go with us ,all the best in finding yourself a new club.

    Danny is a decent FB but he is only really of a mid table standard team in my opinion and we have bigger ambitions than that. I think he’ll do just fine at somewhere like Reading.

    I also can’t help thinking that ever since Jose, Nola, AC and Joey left he hasn’t really been too happy here. He’s a silly boy for not taking a very good offer from us when it was on the table. i think he believed his own hype when he was high up the fantasy football points table last season.

    Oh well, good luck, thanks for doing a job but I don’t think you’ll be missed

    still surprised he wasn,t sold in the last transfer window would have got something for him plus would have saved his wages but there again i was surprised he didn,t sign a new contract he was first choice as right back can,t see wigan paying higher wages than we would have paid perhaps its the signing on fee he wants

  • 7 Moat1 // Feb 16, 2013 at 2:57 PM

  • 8 reccerobbo // Feb 16, 2013 at 4:46 PM
