22 goals in 10 seasons for an attacking midfielder is just horrific.

That's all I really know. Just the stats but unless he. An cover at left back :)

Tony Mowbry said he needed to work on his fitness and if he had kept him it would of been as impact player off the bench ,but hinted he doesn't track back and tackle hard win headers etc ,so a luxury ,as he wants to nutmeg players flick the ball up and score great goals .if he isn't getting picked up by anyone then who knows Stubbs may feel he could get the best out him and give him a short term contract to see what he can do ,but tend to think if we are giving Feruz and Anier oppertunities then would be hard to see us brining in another player Bit you never know he might relish playing for the Club he supports and get a new lease of life

I feel like he's one of these players that will come to Hibs at some point. At 28 though I hope it's sooner rather than later. But right now for this season, we don't particularly need another midfielder.

We should always be looking at players. Even when we think we have enough. If anyone will improve us we should always consider.

From what I remember he impressed me. I haven't followed his career so not going to pretend I know him inside out but he's certainly worth a look.

We may be a bit heavy in midfield but we should never shy from a player who would improve us. Nothing wrong with having a look imo.

Not saying he does it frequently or anything like that but Danny defo scored one "worldie" against us for United. He celebrated like crazy too - irked me only coz as a Hibs fan I'd find it horrendous just playing against us never mind scoring against and beating us.

I have only ever seen Danny score once against us , it was a midweek game and he he scored an excellent free-kick early in the game, United horsed us 4-2 to consolidate their position above us. A few worldies is miles off and DS would not improve us.

May well have been that game actually although I seem to remember a strike where he was allowed to advance forward before smashing one in the top bag. Memory may just be playing tricks.

FWIW I don't think he'd improve us either.

I don't think we would use Swanson any differently to the way Mowbray described for Coventry (ie. impact sub). He doesn't sound fit, is 28 and has never really knuckled down and achieved for all his ability.

I'm pretty happy with our squad as is, there's a couple of areas we could improve on but generally we look pretty decent. Not sure a move to us for Swanson would suit either party. Sounds like he's looking for first team football and I'm not sure we'd be offering that.

To be fair the lad has done well being bborn with a heart defect, Swanson underwent a number of operations as a youngster, including a heart bypass at the age of thirteen.

I don't think we should be trying to add players to any positions except left fullback. Another David Murphy would be ideal, but getting somebody of that quality might be out of the question. We don't however want a makeshift, gapstopping left back.

Im pretty good pals with Dannys brother, anyone who thinks he wouldnt improve our squad is kidding themselves on. He is an excellent creative player, who has pace and most importantly commits defenders, something we sadly lack and have lacked out wide for ages. Levein and neilson are no mugs when it comes to signing players either and its just a shame if he ends up in maroon.

Why are they kidding themselves on? Because he's been such a great player before now? He's an alright player at best and I honestly don't think he'd make our starting lineup.

Totally overated and at 28 he is not exactly going to get better.

09-09-2015, 09:35 AM
A couple of years ago i would of been buzzing with this.

I would take him as i think he would be a good player to have as he is really creative and would help us break team downs. He isnt particulary fast however he is technically very good. If we could afford it comfortably it would be a good deal.

He has been on trial with hearts though and impressed neilson.

Eh ? The current squad has only been completed at the end of the transfer window ...lets at least give them time to perform or fail , before we castigate them

Posh Swanny
09-09-2015, 10:29 AM
I was buzzing when Posh signed him the other year having witnessing some of his early displays at Dundee Utd and raved about him to all who would listen.

Unfortunately it didn't work out well as he never really got fit, despite a few decent runs in the team. He was also VERY easily brushed off the ball by even the most average of defenders. There was the odd flash of brilliance, which thankfully saved me from total ridicule from my Posh pals - they could see he obviously had talent but that something has gone awry in his career at some point. Not sure whether it's psychological or physical.

That said, if anyone could get him firing again it's probably that ****** Levein. 50 seconds into this video shows what he COULD do when it went right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1OzKwLKjGg. Not to mention that goal for St Johnstone at Celtic the other year.

Okay, so who in our current squad is better at commiting defenders and creating chances from out wide? Seems to me our current squad is excellent but top heavy in the central areas but not so good out wide. We are crying out for someone out wide with pace and who will create chances, i really dont know who it is we already have that you think is that good??

Leith Green

Better than what though exactly? He was immense and a key player in 2009/2011 when united were regularly finishing top 3 and won the scottish cup, he has been overlooked at his clubs since then and injured quite a bit. If a team take him anywhere near the level he was at when at united they would have a quality player on their hands.

I agree. He's someone that I've always wanted to play for Hibs. I would personally take him over Carmichael

Franck Stanton

Think our midfield need "balance" as much as anything. We have some very good midfield players but when it comes to left side [wide], think we struggle. Danny Swanson would certainly do that job very well. Be mad not to sign him if we have the chance to do so.

There is a reason why he has been overlooked and that reason is most likely Danny Swanson himself.

The world isn't exactly full of players who arrested their fall down the slippery slope to oblivion.

Having said that Stubbs seems to have had some success with Allan and has another few works in progress in the current team, albeit they are a good bit younger than Danny Swanson

Its not where I would be looking to strengthen (LB for me) but as I am a bit nonplussed as to what position Danny Carmichael has been recruited for as I thought we were crying out for a left winger, if Stubbs thinks he is worth a wage, he will have my support.

Let's be honest, if you are born in Edinburgh and had a small kid and looking to settle back here and the club you supported didn't offer you anything but hearts did would you turn it down?

I know I wouldn't, it's a job and I would want to play so can't blame him at all. When he leaves I bet he still attends Hibs games over that mob.

All the best to him at Them. Find Hibs fans giving Danny abuse because he's signed for Hearts ironic since we've defended Keatings signing for us (although he came from them... not sure who he supports tbh)

At the end of the day the guy has a career to uphold and a family to feed so good luck to him

I was in Asda when we played Falkirk 4-3 game and he was there with his Hibs top on with his name on the back. I said to him "maybe play for us one day Danny?" To which he replied "If only, I'd love to play for Hibs."

So I'd say he's as much a Hibby as the next. Fans think differently to a player. A player sees things as a job, where we think how can anyone who supports Hibs play for them. A jobs a jobs and let's be honest, Hearts have a good set up just now so I can see why he'd go there instead of St Johnstone.

Not as a forward he wouldn't:wink: 4-6-0.

If the feelings mutual he should join the yam.

Meant to add, we often debate the merits of the lower leagues in England as against Scotland, and unfortunately he didn't do a lot at Peterborough over a reasonable period of time.

That's because you're a fan not a footballer.

Football, when it becomes a job, creates different emotions than for us fans....they are going to work, not just to play.

Saying that, because he's gone there he will no doubt be amazing and score against us if the opportunity arises [emoji57]

It would appear that Swanson is doing a Thomas Gravesen; who claimed his father was a long time Celtic supporter when he signed for them.

According to Banderson in the EEN: One member of Swansonís family, his late grandfather, was a season ticket holder at Tynecastle for more than 30 years. ďIím sure heíll be looking down very proud. Heís my mumís dad and my mumís side are all Jambos."

A good signing for them, nevertheless.

Would people on here genuinely turn down the chance to play professional football just because it's Hearts? I've had a season ticket all my days at Easter Road, but if Hearts offered me a contract today, even on about £250 a week I'd quit my job right now and sign.

Oh aye, I would do it for free.........................but only if they allowed me to play in goal in a derby game, then I would wait til all subs had been used and throw 10 consecutive goals in the back of their net. :greengrin:greengrin

I used to coach youth football and was asked to go and coach with them.

I declined point blank, they wanted my son to go and train with them he also declined point blank.

I appreciate that its different if its your living and that you cant always get to play for your own team, but there are plenty of other teams out there without getting involved with the enemy.

It's a crying shame we don't have a separate board for all the pros and wannabes on here to chat in depth about set ups they have no clue about at clubs they have no allegiance to, allowing the rest to spraff ***** and pour scorn, in a time honoured fashion, around a hopefully disastrous signing by the Sparryheids.

And I'd rather stick pins in my boaby than play for them. Fact.

I was in Asda when we played Falkirk 4-3 game and he was there with his Hibs top on with his name on the back. I said to him "maybe play for us one day Danny?" To which he replied "If only, I'd love to play for Hibs."

So I'd say he's as much a Hibby as the next. Fans think differently to a player. A player sees things as a job, where we think how can anyone who supports Hibs play for them. A jobs a jobs and let's be honest, Hearts have a good set up just now so I can see why he'd go there instead of St Johnstone.

Why were you both in asda and not watching the game?

It would appear that Swanson is doing a Thomas Gravesen; who claimed his father was a long time Celtic supporter when he signed for them.

According to Banderson in the EEN: One member of Swansonís family, his late grandfather, was a season ticket holder at Tynecastle for more than 30 years. ďIím sure heíll be looking down very proud. Heís my mumís dad and my mumís side are all Jambos."

A good signing for them, nevertheless.

The implication being that allisbarry has suddenly moved from "reporting" as in what the yam request, to finally doing some journalism?

That'll be a no then

I don't care that he has signed for them, he probably wants to play at a high level so fair dos.

What is very odd is the banderson and BBC stories though. These are actual quotes from a laddie we all know (and all Jambo's know) is a Hibs fan.

Why would he feel the need to make such a bell end of himself?

THIRTEEN-year-old Danny Swanson had never been so excited.

Sitting in a hospital bed in the Sick Kids recovering from a heart operation, he suddenly caught sight of his heroes: Hibs stars Russell Latapy and Dirk Lehmann.

I cannae understand why he's doing it to be honest, my mums family are mostly Celtc supporters, with a couple of Hearts fans in there too. Never in a million years would I say that either of them are "in my blood"...just the thought of saying something like that gies me the dry boak.

I get that you want to win over the fans of your new club, but you dinnae have to pander to them to this level. It's quite pathetic actually.

The sad thing is that nobody would even really care if he is a Hibs fan there if be plays there. We've had numerous players like Whittaker and Cummings who grew up Hearts fans and they've had Lee Wallace and Blobbo as Hibees among many others. It's soon forgotten if they play well.

When I first read this I thought it was nonsense, Danny was never a big football fan growing up so I would have found it hard to believe he was wearing a Hibs top , never mind with his name on the back.

Danny Swanson played , and scored, against Watford for Peterborough on the same day we played Falkirk in the 4-3 game.

Was it a coffee to go he was having while sitting there in his hibs gear?

At the 'Edinburgh Final' there was a guy who looked like Swanson, wearing a Hibs top with Swanson on the back sitting very close to myself and my son.
