Oli Shaw should be given a decent run in the Hibs first team now....never mind being loaned out again. What good would that do anyone ?
Twelve goals scored in the top league in the pitifully few appearances he has had in the Hibs first team would tend to indicate that he knows how to find the net in this league. Scored a few against the best team in the country as well and the infamous derby "goal" which never was. It's about time some confidence was shown in him by the manager...same with Fraser Murray who should also now be given a proper chance to become a first team regular with Stevie Mallan now out for two months injured. Coming on in the last 10 to 15 minutes of games when the team is struggling is no way to determine if a young player has what it takes.

I'd be happy to keep Shaw and Gullan as our back up strikers. Would also be happy for Murray to be our replacement for Allan if injured or suspended.

Imo Shaw isn't good enough. Another like Mallan where if you look at stats alone it gives a false impression of a decent player. Shaw lacks the heart and desire to succeed. He doesn't have enough to his game to merit a start. Sacrifice Doidge or Flo for Shaw?

I agree with Greenmachine; Shaw just needs his confidence built up with regular starts.Keeping the bench warm week in, week out has done him no good.Only with regular game time will we see the player I think he can be.

Personally I'd rather we signed another striker and loaned/sold Shaw rather than giving him an extended run. Just don't think he's good enough and it would be half a season wasted. Forwards is the one area where you really can't afford to just persevere and hope someone comes good for too long IMO.

How do we give him that run? He isn't as good as Flo who he is similar to. He is too different to Doidge to play that role.

If he stays he is third choice unless we have an injury or change shape.

There are attributes that I like and I have not written Ollie off but I'd rather see him improve somewhere else and come back than stagnate here... Its not beneficial to anyone.

I don t know if I'm sounding daft or no' but would doidge be getting slated so much if we had a better defence. He scored one, we scored 2, if we could cut down mistakes at the back we'd be be talking about the goal he scored and no' his weaknesses. Probably no' coming over as I mean it but just a thought.

No as he needs to do more than score a goal, he did pretty much nowt else the whole game.

If it were Griffiths that posted missing during the game but scored everyone would be like "that's what he does he scores goals".

Doidge goal should've been enough to win the game , they have 2 shots on goal score twice and its a' Doidges fault. I'm no' his biggest supporter but the guy was getting pelters, rightly, when he wisnae scoring and now he's scoring he's still getting them. Just my humble opinion as usual

The Doidge conundrum is a weird one. On paper his stats are good but I completely understand what the doubters are saying. Unless he is scoring you are as good as a man down.

That's said, I also agree that his shortcomings would seem less significant if we could shut up shop at the back. We shouldn't have been relying on him to put away late chances yesterday regardless of easy they looked.

Shankland was anonymous for them, I thought, but stuck the ball in the onion bag. I’m sure the Dundee types are not bothered if that’s all he does.

I agree with the poster(s) above: our problem is not the guys that score the goals, it’s the fcukers who cannae stop letting them in.

It could be said Shankland and Doidge had very similar performances - both showed clever movement to get their chance and both scored, but didn’t contribute much to the build up play.

I agree we could have defended the two goals better, but we did limit them to hardly any other chances. We could and should have opened up a two goal margin in both halves, which would have killed the game off. We didn’t, that’s as much a problem as anything.

He goes and challenges for the ball while the players around him do the running. We need somebody to try and stay central with Flo trying to run every blade.

I'm less eager to hang Doidge, still think we've been spoiled with forwards, that because Doidge is a completely different mould he gets it.

Doidge is scoring at least. More than flo. They okay 2 completely different roles though. When doidge is there he attracts the big huddy defenders to him which creates space for flo and saves us punting high balls at flo
