The Magpies were held to a 0-0 stalemate against Sporting Kansas City cheered on by scores of Toon supporters. Scores of Magpies fans will make their way from Kansas to Orlando today as the tour heads south. With Tyneside holiday makers also expected to take in the game in the Florida sunshine, Danny Simpson says he was taken aback by the loyalty shown by fans. Danny Simpson:“It just doesn’t surprise me anymore. “For some of them to come all the way over here and to see the level of support in the US has been humbling. “More will come in Orlando as well. It’s nice for the players to see that when you have came so far. “We’ve got things that the gaffer wants us to work on. We have to do that as a team. “We have to get used to the new players around us and learn how they play and what is best for them. “Fitness is also a big part of it. But mainly getting to know the game plan and exactly what everybody is doing.”
