Simpson Wants To Forget Mackem Connection

Danny Simpson knows Mackems Wes Brown, Phil Bardsley, John O'Shea, Fraizer Campbell and Louis Saha from his time at Old Trafford.

But the 25-year-old – who helped Sunderland win the Championship during a loan spell in 2007 – insists there will be no love lost at the Stadium of Shite on Sunday.

Danny Simpson: “I still have a few friends there, and a few from Man United who play there.

“When it comes to the game, that goes out of the window. It doesn’t matter who you’re playing against – you just want to win.

“For 90 minutes they become the enemy, and you’re friends again afterwards. Hopefully, we’ll get a result.

“It’s a special game – it’s electric.

“It’s an unreal atmosphere, and how much it means to everyone.

“I’ve been lucky enough to play in a few, and we’ve won a couple.”
