Newcastle United have now confirmed that Danny Simpson is now a permanent signing.

The 23 year old right back has been a regular feature of the Toon’s back four since joining the club on loan from Manchester United in August, putting in some very respectable performances, despite a slightly below par perfomance in our last outing against West Bromwich Albion.

The details are that Simpson has signed a three and a half year deal with the Magpies, and he will continue to wear the Number 12 shirt he wore while on loan.

Newcastle United manager, Chris Hughton, who along with assistant, Colin Calderwood, has been involved in intense negotiations over the last few days to secure the player’s signature said:

“We’re delighted to complete a permanent deal for Danny.

“He’s a player who has been with us since the sumer and has played a key role during the first half of the season.

“Danny is a very popular lad in the dressing room and he took no time at all to settle in.

Hughton concluded by saying:

“He was always a player we wanted to keep at the club and he was very keen to stay given how much he’s enjoyed his time here.”

  1. Intense negotiations? Perhaps Hughton and Calderwood had him tied to a chair until he signed?

    It was a widely expected signing anyway and I’m happy it’s completed. £500,000 leaves scope for a profit on a sale aswell.

    Granted, he was below par against West Brom, perhaps becasue he was sad it was his last game? He has been excellent the majority of this season though.

    “Perhaps Hughton and Calderwood had him tied to a chair until he signed?”

    Well people do keep talking about a “Cockney Mafia” at SJP, toonsy.

  3. lol worky

    Glad we’ve got him, though. Now we need to grab a decent right winger and a new option up front (preferably one who can actually play into the box).

  4. I agree thump, a blind man on a galloping horse could see we need a right winger.

    We rely too much on Jonas and Jose to create anything.

  5. We NEED some creativity in mid field.
    Then our strikers might get service that they can’t f*** up.

    Cannot reach batty boy
    <<<<< well get a fishing rod and fish him oot:lol:

  13. Defo batty, I think he’s had the biggest fright of his life and he will want to get out with as much as possible as soon as possible.

    There’s no doubt we’ll be a more attractive proposition if we go up, the most attractive in the league I think.

    Only problem is there doesn’t seem to be too many people wanting footie clubs at the mo.

  14. I have left and scanned the other blogs, all of whom are debating with flair and panache, and when I come back here the tadpole minded Batty is still spouting dross to his intended lover Stuart79. Please stop the gay dance guys and get to second base you creeps.

  15. stu when we go up we will be in a good position because of the fat c@nt but he owes us and stardust has just forgot what name hes posting under lol

  16. He won’t be selling, he’ll have become a ‘success’ if we go up.
    Gamblers don’t stop betting while they’re winning.

  17. If we don’t go up were in the shite big style financially. We’ll have to sell all the big players and Ashley will be lucky to get £50m for the club – He’ll be on suicide watch.

    Stardust has been on the wine gums again.

  18. batty,
    he’ll be able to spend if we get up.
    & that’s all part of the gambling buzz, isn’t it?
    Gambling at this level is maximum buzz mate, he can’t resist that.

  19. He’s gambler alreet but when you come so close to losing as much has he could have lost and still might I think he’ll fold not twist.

  20. Flick,

    He’s a gambler but he’s not stupid!

    He may, just may stay around and let the manager spend £20-30m on new players (Sky money) to see where we end up. After all he won’thave to spend any of his own money if we go up.

    An established PL side is worth more I suppose.

    <<<<< too think u were trying too blame me

  22. clint flick,what happens is you have a bet lose,go on a bender,then smoke some of the finest herb to forget,there,s no problem there.

    “Only problem is there doesn’t seem to be too many people wanting footie clubs at the mo.”

    There’s David Sullivan and David Gold sniffing round West Ham, even though though it’s a bit of a nightmare financially. There’s Jackie Chan at their old club, Birmingham. Portsmouth seems to have a new owner every week nowadays, then there’s Notts County and of course, Man City if you go further back.

    I can be seen from time to time changing in the telehone boxes on Blacktt Street.
    <<<<< not for that long lol

  25. Aye Worky, hence the wording ‘at the mo’.

    Sullivan and Gold said at their press conference they wouldn’t have bought 50% of West Ham if they weren’t WH supporters as it’s in that bad a shape. The Brum deal was agreed last summer and it only cost him about £50m to buy the club.

    The clubs being bought and sold at the minute aren’t for more than £50m. The big billionaires don’t seem to be in the market for football clubs.

    Portsmouth have been bought and sold but they’ve been bought by the poorest millionaires in the world – They cannot even pay the wages.

    “worky fancy stardust slipping up”

    I know absolutely everything about Stardust’s WUMing activities, batty. He’s a very naughty boy.

  27. batty,

    Aye the Man City lot have had to bail em oot.

    I seen Keith Harris saying a bit back that some of the big players in the world who wanted to buy football clubs were having seconds thoughts because of what happened with Ashley up here. He said Ashley was the first serious owner to get it totally wrong and they have seen what can happen.

    So Ashley is responsible for Liverpool not being bought out in a indirect way…

  28. billys the only ledgend on the blog i still laugh now when a think aboot it he drowned his best freind lol worst mistake i ever made stardy grassing u on that 1 wor donna

    “He said Ashley was the first serious owner to get it totally wrong and they have seen what can happen.”

    Come on, Stuart! I know exactly the comments you are referring to. He didn’t say that, and he would never say that.

  30. On one hand, ‘we’ say ashley wants out at the first opportunity, then on the other, he doesn’t wanna sell, it’s just a smoke screen, & he just doesn’t wanna spend money (in transfer windows).
    But basically, he’s gonna do what he wants & we’ll go on trying to make out we know what’s gannen on in his heed.
    We don’t know what the f*** he thinks.
    So we might as well talk about football or something instead, just a thought.

    Good plan trojan. :)

  31. He’s got the gut of an elephant batty. :)

    He’s a recluse, he doesn’t have to care what anyone thinks.
    In fact he’s a rich recluse at that.
    So he can afford to care a bit less.

  40. Batty @ 69 trust you to get that number lol, there is only 1 real Batty thank fuk thats enough. ;)

    Worky @ 72 I think he is right I cant see anything ever going back to the way things were. On that I think football needs to change real fast to keep going, I think a wage cap would be a good thing

  41. batty,
    the lad has a chance now at a big club with the potential to get back to the big time, he can be part of the rebuilding, which i’m sure he relishes.
    Howay!

  42. Stardust says:
    January 20, 2010 at 11:27 pm
    Worky – is that true – you banned Batts lol?
    <<<< yes he did but no doubt he will deny it

  43. clint he fitted in quite well as soon as he came he has 1 bad game then people are calling him shit its a joke m8

  44. Makes me laugh Leaky has been slagging Arsenals methods none stop and ours, and we are both now top of our respective leagues more than half way through the season. Funny some peoples definition of failure isnt it lol.

  45. stardust were top of the leauge because we have been out played in every game this season he will tell u that lol

  46. batty tbh I couldn’t be bothered going on anymore it just isnt the same, but then you can get a good laugh on here at times and you dont get the knob heads on here that Eds used to get. on that I see Moondust was saying that you used the nicks nando super trooper etc on Eds ?? is there anything you would like to say to that ;)

    “Worky @ 72 I think he is right I cant see anything ever going back to the way things were. On that I think football needs to change real fast to keep going, I think a wage cap would be a good thing”

    It goes in cycles, Dave. There’ll be more waves of new money.

    As for the wages, there’s more than a little snobbery about the criticism of players and how much they earn. Extremely talented players can give pleasure to millions, yet the likes of FIFA and UEFA who are driving the current witch hunt, have never questioned their own wages, including the vast sums that come their way in a highly questionable manner. They have never questioned the money of Mansour and his mob at Man City either, which was made on the back of the oppression and virtual slavery that is almost endemic in the UAE.

    “CLiNT in someways either Ma or relegation has been a real good thing as it has finally got us something that we haven’t had in a longtime a TEAM.”

    It was Chris Hughton who made us a team, Dave.

  51. This is exactly the type of signing we should be making. After a loan period to let him prove his worth and settle in, what’s £500K for a known commodity, and a 23 year old with Premiership experience?

    Granted he isn’t a world beater, but we aren’t looking for them right now – just look at Birmingham, they’ve got Carr as captain and RB!

    I’d still like 2 more players tops, being a CB that’s comfortable at left back, a wide right midfield player (which I doubt we’ll pursue because of Raylor), a creative midfielder with some good, quick dribbling skills, or a ‘fox in the box’ striker, as nearly all of ours are 6 foot something and a bit clumsy – with the exception of Lovenkrands. Any 2 of them will mean it’s been a good window for me.

    We don’t need to spend £100mill on 11 new players, what’s the point? I’m much more happy with signings like this one.

    I’ve never seen that article before.

    I was refering to his interview on Sky News in October or there abouts. He did say after Ashley’s investment had gone wrong others where looking at what could go wrong with this type of investment.

    So Ashley’s reign at NUFC has had an effect on others, like it or not.

  53. Stardust says:
    January 20, 2010 at 11:34 pm

    What’s your definition of success Stardust? Mine is actually winning something.

    To my knowledge Arsenal haven’t won anything for about 5-6 years and us, well you know how long.

    Also don’t forget that Arsenal have spent a bit of money recently.

    So if being top of the league half way through the season is success, NUFC really don’t need supporters with that limited ambition.

    Go and watch Gateshead.

  54. Completely off topic but, I’m disgusted with Sol Campbell sticking the boot into Portsmouth when they are already in really bad trouble. It shows greed beyong the realms of decency. Its the Pompey fans who he is hurting and I hope he gets his come-uppance.

  55. beware upsetting Sol he gets depressed you know,80k a week for the last 6 years can have that effect.

  56. Stuart “What’s your definition of success Stardust? Mine is actually winning something”

    Enjoying football Stuart.

    Your version is the poor mans version for a poor quality life. I can take great pleasure in all kinds of things, and see the bright side – whether its a great piece of individual skill or a gritty hard fought performance – or Peter Lovenkrands fighting for the cause and crying at the side of the pitch as he scored and equaliser for us. With Keegan we never won anything first time around – I dont care – it was the greatest football treat I could have ever witnessed.

    Arsenal are the same – they try to do things in the right way – I take pleasure from that. I will happily watch an Arsenal game any time for you can see what they are trying to achieve.

    Lonely men can have cupboards full of trophies yet still feel empty – its the need for trophies that actually shows their insecurity – as much as your comment displays about your own.

    There is one winner in the UK every year by your definition, i.e. the winner of the PL. Yet it goes without saying that millions of visits to the games arent only from the winners.

    Do you think Stoke fans think they can win the league? Or Blackburn – why do we turn up? Its for the love of the game Stuart….something that is shown in that one statement that is missing from you.

    Journalists and Pundits use lines like that – try speaking from the heart and soul rather than in sound bites – you will sound more human.

    Go and watch Gateshead……..

    stuart , why would anyone with limited ambition want to – go and watch gateshead – what the fak do you know about the heed’s ambition ? a fair guess is a big fat ziltch.

    gateshead got promoted last season to the blue square premier , their currently a part time outfit but intend to go full time next season if they remain in this division , that = ambition.

    they also have planning permission with most of the funds raised and in place for a new stadium to be built within 2 years, that = ambition.

    i go to most of the home games & a few away – i was at barrow on boxing and travelled in terrible weather conditions , why ?…because it’s fantastic following my home town team who have nothing but huge ambitions.

    ..the club really dont need people like you passing comment on them when in reality you know jack shit about them !

    ….there’s only one club in the northeast with any ambition & it aint the toon..

    ………HEED ARMY !!!!!!!

  58. Komfort man calm ya self down!

    I never mentioned NUFC’s ambition. You are absolutely right about Gateshead having more ambition than NUFC.

    I’m talking about my own ambitions, I want NUFC to be challenging for trophies and winning them.

    But the idea that were successful because were top of the league is pityful really.

    I go to watch NUFC because I enjoy it, I don’t have to go but I want to go. It’s not success.
