Newcastle Defender Almost There

8 years ago

After limping off against Aston Villa, the missing Danny Simpson has meant Newcastle have had to chop and chain with the likes of Anita, Perch and Tavernier all taking their turn.

The only real specialist right-back at the club, Simpson has maybe showed more in his absence in terms of what he gives to the team.

The player might not create much going forward and has a tendency to show players inside but he has provided excellent service over the last couple of seasons and helps to give the defence a stable look.

Today Simpson Tweeted, “Trained with the team today, felt good to be back out on the pitch – Missed the banter with the boys”.

Reading is almost certainly too early for Simpson to figure but the earlier he is the fit the better as half the battle with defending is having a settled back four who know each other’s games and from our current team – Simpson, Colo, Steven Taylor and Santon are definitely first choice.
