    The original statement from them changed from loan to by mutual consent departure...

    Pity it didn't work out for Danny Handling at Hibs.
    His career has stalled badly through an unreal amount of serious injuries so early on in his career.
    Hopefully he can go on and have a decent career in the game at whatever level.

    I cant remember Handling ever playing particularly well or even showing anything other than a few infrequent glimpses of potential.

    1:0 away to Ross County as we got relegated sticks in my mind as how limited he was as a midfielder.

    Then along comes Stubbsy who does what a lot of new managers do and plays the "big man" by making the bold "look at me" statement and gives Handling a 4 year contract out of absolutely nowhere.

    Completely unreal and then 3 years later with no games played not surprisingly yet another Hibs player gets a "mutually agreed" GTF payment.

    I like the fact though that these days there seems to be much more coordination, research and communal decision making when handing out contracts or signing new players and "mutually agreed" is becoming the exception and not the norm.
    Football is the most important of life's least important things.

    Weirdly he played over 20 odd games in Stubbs first season.

    Think his total is 65 games for us overall.

    Glad he is away. Always struck me he enjoyed the limelight of being at Hibs more than working hard and improving as a player for us.

    I go along with that - there’s a huge amount of youth players coming through in Scotland who do lots of running about and pretty touches but seem to be missing the mentality and hunger and desire to succeed.

    I'm happy we got rid of the likes of Stanton, Harris and Handling. Nothing against them personally, just haven't ever done enough or able to hold down a spot in the first team. Time for them to move on and let's see what the next crop of youngsters have to offer.

    I hope Danny has a decent career elsewhere, I don't think it was ever going to work with us, aside from his injury problems. The four-year contract was somewhat bizarre.

    The youngsters that are going to make it not always but often have an immediate impact and then learn how to sustain it. Take the first steps of Ryan Porteous as an example by comparison. Apparently immediately looking the part and not out of place.

    There is no room for sentiment in football. The likes of Danny, Sam Stanton and Harris to some extent never really looked the part for Hibs. They were ultimately not good enough for Hibs but can carve out a career elsewhere and I feel this should have been acted on far sooner.

    Honestly?

    I think the new Stubbs regime just misread the situation. I think they wanted to show the fans that they were going to invest in "Hibs' youth", and did so by signing on a youngster that they thought the fans would approve of.

    All it really achieved, as far as I saw, was a whole pile of head scratching on the terraces.

    Yes, my opinion is that it was slightly bizarre, a completely leftfield and unexpected decision, as evidenced by the fan reaction that you point out and that I remember well. Danny had done little to warrant such a long contract at the time, with youth on his side or not.
