Wonder what happened to that wee Asian lass that stalked Nishy all over the place?
I was in the pub with my Jambo mate a few years ago and we established that she was teaching him Japanese at night school because she was banging on about Colin Nish constantly to her students aswell.

Presumably those are Nish's SPL goals though? Which would suggest that he wasn't necessarily the problem?
Trust me Henry old bean. Nish was pish for Hibs.

I'd take Colin Nish right now! He wasn't bad as a support act to Stokes and Deeks in Yogi's first season, sometimes we'd even play all 3. Scored a few goals at the tail end of that season to take us into Europe.

Yeah, Nish was ok, third choice and he was usually good for about 10 a season. It's a shame our defence was so shite back then because we went through a plethora of great attacking players during the Mixu/Yogi days.

I so want you to be right, GM but then I remember that a striker called Colin Nish couldn't even make it at Hibs...

Nish was decent striker in my opinion...he could score goals and he linked up well with others.

We all want Doidge to come good and prove most of us wrong. I'm sorry but I just don't see it happening.
I was in hospitality for the game against the lesser greens, so was not sitting next to my usual crowd. I could not believe the hype surrounding him after the game . I thought he was dung. He was pushed off the ball a few times, three times Brown beat him in the air, he knocked it on to nobody about 5 times. Even his " goal " was going nowhere until it hit the smelly. He plays with his head down, and doesn't have any pace of note. I've never seen him attack a header with any conviction,take a man on , or play a teammate through.
He has a lot of room for improvement, I wish him well, I really do. We all do.

He has been asked to play for one of the greatest clubs , he is probably getting paid quite handsomely, he tries quite hard. I can't blame him for taking the opportunity.
I agree with you about his performance that day and I was watching from the East stand.
I hope he comes good for us too but it'll need to happen soon. I didn't see the makings of a great striker, I saw someone who tried a lot in a Hibs team that was greatly improved from previous games and I think a lot of fans got carried away with it all. Probably because we're grasping at even the tiniest bit of improvement.
Then again you always have to build yourself up for the next game hoping it gets better, in a way it probably is but it is painfully slow.
GGTTH.

Selective memory methinks Just trawl the Nish threads from years back on here.

You will certainly get pics of baby giraffes amongst all the abuse. Tons of rage. Par for the course, of course, regarding Hibs strikers.

Was thinking the same thing. It’s amazing how poor to average ex players suddenly become “good” when they leave us.

Oh yeah I know, but if he was able to score elsewhere at the same level then the fault must presumably have been the team he was in. So I'm not sure it follows that Doidge is doomed. At least not for that reason.

I felt sorry for him in the end. He was a Hibs fan that got to live the dream and failed big time. Maybe tried too hard to rectify his game but would end up tripping over his feet and on his arse time and time again. It would drive you round the bend watching him trying to jump and never win a header. What was the saying again? He's 6 fit 4 but when he jumps he becomes 5 fit 2. As I said just type his name in the search engine and you'll see what I'm on about...

As for Doidge, my jury is still oot on him but the more times he fluffs these sitters the harder it is gonna get for him. What I've noticed is he is not a true striker of the ball, it's aw sclaffs, mishits and trundlers. Still, he is getting in these positions but so did James Collins and his sitters seem very similar.

Christ Deek was told he was a lazy shite, JC is now deemed a crap 1st Div player, Sparky is a badge kissing judas...etc etc etc

Hibs fans and strikers are pure mental. If your good you'll get it tight and if you're shite you'll get it tighter. Doidge needs a goal fast cos as I said better strikers than him have failed at their time at Hibs.

Spent most of the time falling on his backside. His 30 yarder at Tannadice straight into the top corner is probably my best memory of him.

Don’t get this continuous debate about Dudge when Flo is a far better finisher , who would have netted 90% of Dudges missed sitters .Just don’t get it 🤔

Nish double at Tannadice to clinch European spot last game of season 2010 probably his best Hibs moment
or his hat-ttrick in the 6-6 draw at Motherwell,...
He scored goals regularly for every club he played for including Hibs.

If you compare Dodige to what we have had even over recent years (Cummings, Malonga, Farid, Holt, Stokesy, McClaren, Flo) it's not good. He might start scoring but just don't see it and at 27 is he going to improve? James Collins was young and at a brutal time when he was here.

Loved it all the more as I was getting all the usual Nish is P before the game from United pals. Definitely his finest moment. Top guy just not the best player.
