I would actually keep Doidge and sell Flo.
Steve Cowan! Thought of Joe Harper but he scored a League cup final hat-trick but lost the match. Jimmy O'Rourke scored quite a few hat-tricks in 1972. Not that I'm old enough to remember mind! ?Who was the last Hibs player to score 2 hat tricks in one season?
My guess is Jimmy O ??????
I agree it is ridiculous the way players are written off so quickly. It’s great when players click instantly, but that’s never going to be the case for everyone. Doidge has got better as the season has gone on, if he keeps it up he’ll be our version of Cosgrove at Aberdeen.I have wanted for years to see Hibs have a big, strong goalscoring striker who can work a defence, can link well with others, is decent in the air and can lead the line well...and now it would appear that we have one despite an underwhelming start to his Hibs career. Sometimes it takes new players a while to settle in to a club particularly when they are coming from another country. I am as guilty of this as anyone, but we really should stop this idea that new players have to hit the ground running and be an immediate success or else they are instantly branded as duds.
Doidge is no world beater, but he clearly knows his way around the penalty box and most importantly has now shown he can get goals at this level.
