    If his preference is one up front what is the logic in signing a striker who isnít suited to the role ?
    Good point. If this was the case Iíd suggest he should have gone for Shankland rather than Doidge.

    100% shouldíve went for shankland over doidge. Couldíve signed him on a free and offered him a decent wage with the 250-300k we spent on doidge

    If this had been a full team of new signings Doidge would be further down my list of concerns. A few of our players have a history here that buys them crap performances the new guys don't.

    That was disgraceful on Saturday from folk who should know a lot better.

    Still can't get my head around the fact we have paid £300k for this guy.

    Won't make you feel any better that we paid £350k.

    Here is one that can be book marked - I think Doidge will come good and be a big player for us.

    Yes have book marked. A player who failed in his 17 appearances at the third tier of English football. I think he has less ability than James Collins who has at least succeeded at the third tier of English football.He is a 4th tier English league player. It is not his fault but that of the management/recruitment team. How could they imagine a player so lacking in quality could play up on his own at Ibrox against an ever improving Rangers?

    The English Championship is the second tier, isn't it? This might help you to understand what you're talking about: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48220499

    Thanks did not realise they had been promoted. One goal in championship indicates he is somewhere between n 3rd and 4th tier of English football. Probably the cheap option for Bolton given their financial position. But think would have been playing in struggling side with no real resources. So not really a fair benchmark.

    With the situation at Bolton, it really doesn't give any kind of indication.

    He will definitely do well against the bottom 6 teams
    The jury is out on how he will get on against the other teams in the top 6.

    Not buying that.
    I would be very surprised if we paid over £275k.

    Not sure what you are basing that on or how you can be so confident. He played against a team last week I'd expect to be bottom six, missed two sitters and hit a weak shot with his third chance.

    Why will he do better against the bottom six teams? The goals are the same size no matter who youíre playing and a chance to score is a chance to score. Iím fed up of making excuses for strikers who canít score. Iím not writing him off, but Iíve seen this performance being played out too many times

    United we stand here....

    This squad reminds me so much of the James Collins and the Pat Fenlon era.
    Yes, Scott Allan, Darren McGregor, Rocky, SDG, Horgan and Kamberi deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as some of the cretins we had playing for us back then

    Let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater here, if this squad can get motoring and playing to its potential, we'll be fine.

    What would be the point of that? If we did that we wouldn't be able to make 25 posts an hour saying exactly the same thing on numerous different threads.

    Not one person on here can tell you without doubt and factually if Doidge as of today will be a good or bad player for us. Absolutley we can have conjecture that already he doesnt look good so based on that he wont do well or he looked ok so might do well. We have played a very small amount of games to know if he or the others will do well so its unfair to right him off but equally unfair to say will do well.

    I get we have gut feelings on things and seeing a player only a couple of times can make our minds up. I thought the very moment I heard colin calderwood speak we were in trouble not based on anything other than gut feeling but i have had this before and the player has worked so i have just decided to actually rate them on how they play vs a good few teams before having a go at the player. Just my thoughts.

    I'm in no way convinced by the summer signings but I still think Doidge will be just fine for us. We all need to calm down a wee bit.

    Unfortunately the pitchforks are out and Hibs players rarely recover when they've been marked. The only one I can think of was Lewis Stevenson and he had to win two ****ing cups to do it.

    He is *****. Zero pace and control as bad as Hertardo (remember him).

    He will gone by January to someone like Halifax or S****horpe.

    Just after the manger.

    Hurtado was a goal scoring legend except he was finished by the time we signed him

    Exactly . Just look at Kamberi, fantastic £2M striker when he came on loan. Now a complete dud who can't buy a goal

    First impressions aren't great, but it's very early. Hopefully he can improve when he's had chance to settle. We shouldn't be expecting every signing to hit the ground running; sometimes it takes a while. If he doesn't eventually add anything, he'll be moved on. The sad reality is that clubs on our budget can't afford players who guarantee quality; we have take a punt, which sometimes doesn't work out.

    Maybe we should stop buying players who look great in their YouTube compilations.

    Sam Cosgrove was absolutely dreadful for Aberdeen goal wise. He didnít score for absolutely ages then sparked into life. They stuck by him and didnít disregard him after a few games. Iíll give Doidge the benefit of the doubt before he is written off as *****, a waste of money and James Collins mk 2.

    Indeed, he also missed quite a few "sitters" as well - even the utter Dons suck up Richard Gordon was laughing at him but McInnes stuck by him.

    I recall that they laughed and called him a goal machine after he scored a couple in a week after weeks of nothing - but they were still writing him off as useless.

    Now they are talking £3m for the guy.

    Sometimes it takes time.

    Despite the goal, I thought he was garbage when he came on. All of PHís signings are woeful.

    Agree. Took the goal well though. Hope he turns out a player because we are going to need it if Kamberi leaves...
