    Hes the weirdest striker weve ever had, when hes hot hes unbelievable, but when hes not he looks seriously ordinary. Right now hes hot at the right time of the season.

    United we stand here....

    Thought he was excellent tonight. The goal and a rest appear to have worked wonders as he looked a yard sharper, possibly the opposition, and looked confident in front of goal. I'm off the opinion he hasn't been as good as he should have been and hasn't been working hard enough. Not through laziness just through the head dropping when he missed so many chances. He was chasing but not as hard as he did and wasn't as wholehearted in some challenges or running into spaces etc. He looked a different player tonight even during the opening 20 minutes when most of his team mates were not at the races. Hope he can keep the goals coming as to me his whole game is better when he has the spark of a goal or two to light his fire. One thing I have never criticised him is that he is brave in terms of getting into goal scoring positions. James Collins and Grant Holt started playing further and further from goal making it less likely to score when they were having droughts. Big Doidge has stuck at it and is starting to get his reward for consistently being in the danger area and getting chances. He may well have a great run just when we need him most

    Was very good tonight I thought even out with his goals. He looked unusually very comfortable with the ball at his feet which I dont usually thinks his strength. Held up the ball very well at times and worked hard.

    Deserved his 2 goals and motm

    Delighted for Doidgy - after a big stretch where nothing would go in for him suddenly he's Mr goals with 3 in 2 games. We can argue the toss about his quality in front of goal but his attitude and overall contribution to the team is never in doubt. Strikers need goals though and I think this last little clutch of goals gives a better indication of Christian's contribution over the piece this season. We have potentially 10(?) games left to go - great time for All our strikers to find some form!

    Partly agree with this, but even when he isnt scoring hes pulling his weight in the team through hold up play, linking, aggression and threat in the air. Never hides and always contributes even when his generally pretty prolific goal touch deserts him.

    His ability but more than that, his attitude means hell always be a favorite.

    If he was to put away all the chances that he gets, then he wouldn't be playing for us.

    Christian has totally won me over after an indifferent start, great team player, brilliant attitude and will continue to score if he keeps getting into positions he does.

    He was back in defence when we were 3-0 up and cruising, the man certainly puts in a shift but I too kind of agree with the poster you quoted.

    The commentator even remarked that he had to double check that it was Doidge defending at Right Back when QOS broke away.

    If any striker who played for us put away all of their chances they wouldn't play for us not just Doidge.

    Against the boy that McFadden proclaimed to be the fastest player on the pitch when he came on. Gave him a head start, chased him down and won the ball back.

    The good thing about having such quality throughout the squad is that different players can come to the fore when others aren't having the best time. Boyle, Nisbet and Doigde have all had indifferent periods this season (of varying lengths of time) and yet are all in double figures in terms of goals now.

    If all three were to hit peak form at the same time (the next few weeks would be absolutely perfect), then we'd be truly formidable. Such a variety of threats across the three players.

    Hes an interesting one for sure, one thing you can guarantee is he willl always get a chance.

    When you compare him to other strikers, even Nisbet, he seems to get far more chances or be in better positions. He doesnt always take them, but hes got the instinct to get in those positions.

    I think Nisbet doesnt help himself with his as he always comes deep which is good, but Id like to see him have the desire to get back in the box straight away for more tap ins.

    I like Doidge a lot and would start him in the vast majority of games.

    My one complaint is if we and him are struggling in a game he either gets caught offside a lot or gives away petty fouls.
