Thread: Danny Swanson

  1. #1

    Danny Swanson

    I'd imagine there is a fair chance Danny may not be involved this weekend with him standing as a witness this week in the murder trial of one of his best pals?

    Lennon mentioned a few weeks back that the club were helping him in every way but I'd imagine he's missed most of training this week..

    I didn't realise that had started. That must be awful for him on top of the horror of losing his friend. It's good to hear the club have a plan in place to help him. If that includes giving him time off and he misses a few games then so be it if it helps him cope and get through such a brutal experience.

    Think I read that it was expected to last a week.

    I don't think you'd ever be able to get over witnessing something so brutal like that.

    Needs all the support from the Hibs fans

    That's some tough reading right there. I can't even imagine what Danny is going through having to revisit such a horrible event. Hopefully justice is served and he can concentrate getting back to football. I'm sure he'll be given all the time he needs.

    Whenever I've had bad stuff going on in my personal life, playing football has always been the one thing I could so that I could guarantee would take my mind off my problems.

    If there's any risk Danny's mind isn't where it needs to be then Lennon will notice and respond accordingly.

    I wouldn't write his chances of playing off though. It might be exactly what he needs.

    Jesus, that must be terrible for Danny. I hadn't realised he knew Shaun so well or that he was there that night.

    It may be as another poster said that playing football helps Danny but I'm sure the club will be looking out for him.

    Yeah they were best pals. Just glad Hibs are providing all the necessary support to him and his family at what must be a traumatic time going back over that horrible night.

    Danny was giving evidence again today, Terrible news that one of them has been cleared. Will be down to Lennon and Danny to see if he is ok to play tomorrow.

    I think Danny will shine for us once this awfull situation for him is put to bed. Glad NL is supporting him through it. Really think us fans need to get beind Danny and show him some encouragement while on the park.

    Why is it terrible news that someone was acquitted? If they can't prove he is guilty then he is innocent - thats how the law works.

    Correct. People shouldn't be idly commenting on this case anyway. Stick to the footer.

    Is it possible he could have been offered a deal to give evidence against his mates.

    That would have happened pre trial I would have thought. They can't simply sort him a deal and add him to the witnesses, defence wouldn't have time to prepare.
    Sounds like they simply don't have a strong enough case against this one guy.

    Which would make him a grass aswell as a murderer no matter what he pleads in court. Hope he rots

    So if I witnessed a crime that ended in a death would I be a grass as well?

    Not sure you are correct there mate. Read up on the Arlene Fraser case for a witness turning Queens evidence mid-trial.

    Seeing as this attack was carried out in full view of numerous witnesses I doubt it.
