The Magpies defender said: "We need to bounce back and it is a good opportunity, with it being a home game, to put some points on the board.

"We've got to start better against Swansea - we have to start quickly and try to get the first goal, rather than starting when they score first.

"They've got different threats to West Ham. They are more technical and want to play quicker football, but that will suit us, I think.

"They will come and have a go at us, and when teams do that we have got the players up front and on the break to create problems for them."

Saturday's game sees the return to St James' Park of old boy Wayne Routledge, but Simpson is confident the Swansea winger will leave disappointed.

He added: "Wayne is doing really well and I'm happy for him. He looks settled there, looks comfortable and has started scoring goals as well.

"I chat to him on a weekly basis and he is very happy at Swansea.

"I'm sure he is looking forward to coming back up here and playing against the lads, but if I play against him I will have to kick him as usual!"

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
