Ex-Newcastle Defender To Join Championship Club

The Sun are reporting that former Newcastle right-back Danny Simpson is joining Huddersfield until the end of the season. The deal will reportedly be announced later on today.

Danny is a free agent after his contract with Leicester City expired this summer. The 32-year-old played in 138 games for Newcastle from 2009 until he left for QPR as a free agent in 2013.

Simpson is one of a number of ex-Magpies who were without a club when all the transfer windows closed earlier this month. If he does sign with Huddersfield, he will join Emmanuel Riviere as one of the free agents who were able to continue their careers. Riviere joined Achraf Lazaar at Serie B side Cosenza a few weeks ago.

Former Newcastle players Hatem Ben Arfa, Vurnon Anita, Obafemi Martins, and Giuseppe Rossi still remain free agents.

    Good move for Danny Simpson, who should get at least a couple more seasons as a player. With Hudds in the Champo is a decent level for a 32 year-old who, let’s face it, was always an honest pro rather than being outrageously gifted, Premier League winner or not.

    Just got this text from mate back home.

    ‘Peter Kenyon is like Thomas Cook, nice brochures but no money’

    (This is not intended to upset anyone who has booked a holiday with TC, just a bit of banter)

    Ahh the sale lie
    Like most shops Christmas came early this year

    Who do you think he will pretend to sell us to this year ?
    Kenyon again ?

    At least he could come up with someone with a bit of comedy value, my personal favorite would be Franky Boyle
    Or maybe Donald Trump, he would be a right laugh

    As one thing has been certain in every sale lie

    Once you know about it, the clubs either already sold
    Or its being used as his go to PR lie to quell unrest

    I swear the only thing missing for this now biannual fakeover bingo card is the ITKs.

    The upfront petrol bomb advocate DubaiMickey and the cryptic clue monkey Online Guy who has been an ITK during every single fakeover.

    Ha! Let the fun begin. Where’s the frog!

    Just had a good look through that brochure – seems a bit of an odd one to me. The squad listed is last season’s and includes Joselu, Diame and Rondon who was never a club asset anyway.

    There are some damning parts of it around the current owner, however – it mentions repeatedly that the commercial side of the club has been neglected, constantly points out the disparity between NUFC and other clubs and makes direct comparisons between the growth of NUFC under Ashley and Spurs over the same period.

    I don’t see that as being information the club would want to be publicised, which suggests that they had nothing to do with the document itself.

    The timing may be suspect and the data within out of date, but I would say the document is genuine. What I mean is that someone has drawn it up in order to encourage backers to enter a consortium to buy the club. Whether or not that means they’re now ready to actually buy it or not is another matter.

    Whether Ashley is actually ready to sell is obviously the most important factor and is doubtless the one that most of us will be most dubious about.

    Is the brochure colour by number?

    Have crayons been used?

    Good luck to Danny Simpson, He served NUFC well when he played for us ( In my opinion )

    Now to the latest BOLLOCKS being supposedly leaked.


    This is another Bullshit saga with Fat Lad written all over it, As he doesn’t have a clue what to do or say about the ever increasing number of empty seats on match days. He is worried and he needs the cash that he normally takes and hides wherever to pay his tax bill that he cannot wriggle out of.

    Don’t forget that he spends a lot of time in the states and no doubt these could be his buddies trying to put a bit of spin to try to get us all jumping with excitement as most of us did not that long ago with the rich milk shake story.

    Personally, I won’t believe anything until it’s OFFICIALLY DONE !
