    “He’s looked ok” is kind of my point. We need more than ok if we are to remain a top 4 side. As I said him being a starter next season will mean we’ve lost better players. He’ll have cost the club a fair bit in wages relating to his contribution this season, and at the age of 30 he’s not really going to develop any further.

    As for being a Hibs man, that he may be (ignoring his patter when he signed for Hearts of course) but being a Hibs man didn’t stop Paul or Darren having a shocker in a crucial Edinburgh derby this week, so it sadly doesn’t always count for much.

    I simply don’t think he rates him. The fact we signed another player (Barker) for the same position Danny plays in during the same transfer window was telling. The fact that yet another was signed (Allan) was signed in January after Barker’s injury was equally telling.
    You obviously dinnae rate him, I do . We,ll just ignore the fact that he witnessed his best pal get murdered and then have tae go through the thing again at the trial. His head must have been mince. That’s all behind him now and hopefully he gets back tae his best, as a Hibs player.

    The fact Allan and barker technically play in different positions leaves this open to question...

    Neil told Danny in January that the players we had did the jobs he wanted so Danny would be limited.
    Then we brought in other players n Danny was obviously a bit put off by it.

    Neil made his decision and isn't looking to change.

    Danny was excellent against Celtic, it doesn't matter though, cause he's just not in favour.
    They’re both ahead of Swanson in the pecking order to play as a number 10, and Barker is ahead of him as a left winger.

    He was excellent against Celtic, no doubt there. That he was dropped for the following match says it all about how Lennon views him compared to Allan.

    I always thought Swanson was part of what happened with Stokes in Portugal. Maybe I’m wrong.

    What happened in his personal life is truely horrendous and without doubt will have affected his mental state. No one can measure how long it takes someone to get their head right (if they ever can) after such an event, and there’s no doubt that has impacted him this season. I’m not sure why you’re accusing me of ignoring that as I’m not?

    That said you’re right I don’t really rate him, not just based on this season but from what I’ve seen of him over the years. I really wasn’t excited by his arrival last summer, just don’t think he’s good enough to play regularly at a club looking to be minimum top 4. If we only signed him as a squad player then fine, but I don’t think Danny himself or Hibs would have viewed him as such last summer.

    I hoped he would be a success a Hibs, indeed I hope he still is, but I don’t think he’s as good as Allan or Barker and wouldn’t be surprised if he leaves Hibs this summer.

    Stokes, Swanson & Boyle were the three alleged culprits.

    I dont rate Barker that highly, when it came to the crunch on Wednesday, he shat it. I prefer Danny, he has similar skills but reckon he would score where Brenda might not?

    I don’t think barker has been fit often enough - glad we’re not paying his wages to sit in the stand.

    That would be a lot of designer trainers

    Barker was really coming on to a game before his latest injury. Maybe in the minority, but would be delighted to sign him permanently.

    Would you be kind enough to show me where I have? At no point have I said that stuff doesn’t matter or that he should get over it.

    Anyway I think he’s average, you think he’s better than that - I hope you’re right.
