He's proved himself in the National League but has never managed more than 20 a games a season in the Football League. We're trying to get promoted out of League Two and Altrincham are around the play-offs in the National League. What's the mystery?

From what I saw of him I could never work out what sort of midfielder he was supposed to be - creative, box to box, defensive, attacking… I couldn’t make out his strengths and weaknesses.

Askey obviously knew and rated him.

Bang on the money. Had no idea what he actually was .

Salford were quick to off load him.  My view is that John Askey panicked a little bit in pre season 2020 and he was not willing to wait a bit longer before trying to get Jake Taylor on loan for a second time, hence we lost out to Scunthorpe.

I think Askey signed Danny as a bits and pieces player would could fill in at defensive midfield, full back, and occasionally attacking midfield.  So what we had was a player who has never really cut it in the FL signed as a fill in. Whilst he could do a job in different areas on the pitch he was never going to excel. Our current manager quickly worked him out.

Nothing against Danny, I think his level is national league, and that is a good level to play at. I hope he gets his career back on track at Altrincham.
