Player Contracts + Transfers

We didn't sign him before he went to Hearts -he was here on loan.  It's hard to believe we didn't extend his contract earlier but there must have been a reason.  Sad to see him go, but no player is bigger than Saints.

Lets get this right.....you sign him on a deal till the end of the season, after impressing on a loan spell, and now he is leaving at the end of the season.  Whats the problem exactly?  Oh, he should stay till the end of next season? or the season after?  Dear oh dear some of you are somewhat naive, and ignorant of the laws that govern employment contracts.  This is like sailors complaining about the sea!  All told this has been a good deal for Saints, he put a lot of points on the board and royally entertained whilst here, he owes Saints **** all but customary thanks and a handshake, fans and players just don't think the same way, you will be forever disappointed  if you think players care the way fans do.

....if you wanted him to stay........Mr Brown should have signed him on a different deal...you know one that was longer than till the end of the season.  I think the chairman did well to get him, and have no doubt he and TW will get another.

Mixed feelings on Danny going. He was good to November. That was it.  Clearly good skillful player, good to watch, but more often than not doesn't track back or loses the ball. Loads of goals, many this season from the spot, take them away and since November he's been distinctly average... He only turns up v Hearts and County, rarely winning a man of the match award hone or away on here

Frustratingly hides in games when I feel he needs to shine.. His new employer (fans) won't tolerate that as much as we did..  However never his biggest admirer during both spells with us he will be regarded as a success in my eyes.. But certainly not a great player that some blue tinted specs make out.  

Aw the best lad... Can't wait for Foster v Swanson battles next season.  If Danny isn't simply a bench player.

You do understand we are talking about Danny Swanson here, and not Kezia Dugdale?

Ah yes. Was thinking we'd had him on a short contract after he left Coventry for some reason.

 

The Arab chap is obviously just trolling now.

Nobody cares about him joining Hibs. It's the fact hes strung the manager along for months, forcing us to hold back some of the budget next season in hope he re-signs (apparently Mannus has signed a PCA with Motherwell, arguably Swanson mucking us about has led to Mannus' wage being considered "cuttable"), forcing us to hold off approaching targets for next season and he's made the manager look foolish. 

If he'd said from the beginning that Hibs were his first choice then nobody could complain, instead he's been in the paper, and telling the manager, that we were his first choice. It's now being rumoured he actually agreed a deal with them in February but it wouldn't be signed until they got promoted, which means he's been stringing us along with no intention of signing for us unless Hibs failed to get promoted. 

It's shite behaviour, especially toward a manager who's twice saved him from sitting in a stand.

When we signed Alston, Coulson,McKay and Shawknessy on pre contract agreements their clubs were all informed. 

Swanson is a shitebag. Like Graham before him.

 

Have the latter two played for the Arabs?:wink:
