DannySimpson3It has emerged this morning that Danny Simpson got into a ‘bit’ of bother on a night out back in his Manchester homeland.

It is reported that Simpson got into a scuffle in a takeaway at around 4am on Sunday.

The Sun’s exclusive includes disturbing video footage of Simpson lying apparently unconscious on the roadside, although a spokesman for Simpson claims the player will be at training today.

The newspaper claims that

‘Witnesses said the Newcastle defender hit the man, in his late 40s or 50s, knocking him to the ground. Simpson then left the takeaway, climbed into a taxi, but was then dragged out by another man and punched’,

It is reported that Simpson lay bleeding and unconscious for around 15 minutes until Paramedics attended and rushed him to hospital.

It is claimed that it was two bouncers who rushed over and opened the taxi door, with one of them punching the player in the face.

The Ambulance service later confirmed a man had been taken to hospital and Manchester Police also confirmed they’d attended after reports of an assault.

The rumour is totally groundless…speculation regarding any Sissoko transfer would have to be strictly on Ashley’s terms due to his length of contract, and with his known ability in the PL… that won’t come at those piss farting amounts we’ve seen bandied about (£9m), by the amateur rumour mongers we’ve read so far…which makes this pretty much a non-story.

Sissoko's defensive play was a major problem last season -he does not appear to want to put the yards in, frequently marking space and reluctant to compete in tackles or for headers. His attacking play is often of the headless chicken variety.I would lose no sleep if he went.

Indeed he id and think he's playing went off the boil quotes bit was due to the rubbish coaching here, which now has improved so might change Sissokos mind about moving.

A good player on his day but there have been too few over his time here. He has continually agitated for a move and linked himself with all sorts of clubs over the last two years with his desire for champions league football. Unless I'm mistaken Liverpool aren't in the champions league and despite their signings I doubt they will make it this coming season given the teams above them will be improving too. A move for money, surely not!

Not a bad assessment to be honest. He is awesome when he applies himself
