Jon Toral Signs Until End of Season.


Recommended Posts

Leave Dodoo alone for fuck sake, the lad did very well, then was repaid for his efforts by sitting on the bench. In my eyes he looks to definitely have talent and is a good finisher, but if you're going to keep benching someone after impressing you're going to get inconsistency.

I've said plenty of times before, squad rotation only works when you have really good quality players - we don't - so we cannot expect all these players to hit the ground running after a time on the bench.

I'm sure you'll correct me if i'm wrong but i believe he started the next game.

Would like to see him given a chance too but that doesn't look likely in a 433, so if this 352ish formation works then maybe he'll come good.

 

Aye, he started the game against hearts where admittedly no-one played well.

I can't see us sticking with the 3-5-2, I think that was only for celtic. I'll not correct you because my memory is shit, but I'm sure there were a couple of times when we expected to see Dodoo after previous performances and instead he was dumped on the bench.

Exactly, his positioning is top notch. Garner is always outside the box when the ball gets played in, not a naturals goalscorers Instinct. He's more a target man. Waghorn is too inconsistent and drifts wide too often.

How many tap ins have been missed so far this season? Quite a few easy chances have been missed... last season as well. 

So because we've missed a load of tap in chances and he scored one, once, that means he's the best finisher at the club and has "top notch" positioning? Absolute rubbish. 

 

Like I'm not writing the boy off, but we haven't seen enough of him to claim he's brilliant or terrible.

We can dismiss players too quickly. I don't think we have seen  anywhere near enough of Dodoo to make a judgement. I think a player needs 15-20 games to be able to judge . I remember us signing Alec McDonald way back and it took him a good time to settle and find his best position and he is a real legend. We write players off way too early.

The unfortunate thing at the moment is we don't have time to let players settle, we need people to perform yesterday!

Totally agree. If Forrester had been less greedy Dodoo would have scored against them. And that would have made it four goals in four appearances for the lad, counting the one he'd had chalked off - we can't ask for more. For me -- unlike Garner -- Dodoo gets himself in the right place at the right time. Combine Garner's physicality with Dodoo's positional nous up front and we might have a winning combo. Wee Baz on the other side and this Spanish guy in CAM role behind them. Could be good...

Who's writing him off? I'm writing off the stupid claims of him being the most natural finisher at the club, based on a few fleeting appearances.

Dodo has all the footballing grace of Ted Mcminn

McMinn was a footballing genius, a throwback, utterly impossible to defend as he didnt even know what he'd do next. I understand what you meant but there is no comparisone whatsoever. I remember him beating three or four players on the byline making his way into the six yard box only to kick the turf for the ball to trickle out for a goal kick....as I said genius.

I remember him running towards the touchline, stops the ball, can't stop running, almost ends up in the enclosure, turns and runs back again, gets to the ball before anyone else, trips/stumbles past 2 players. Dont think he looked up once and just kept running. Great stuff.

I only meant that when watching the tin man we were never sure what he was trying to do. It's sometimes the case when watching Dodoo, but he's young and somehow has got a bit of a player in him.

Scored direct from a corner at Boghead versus Dumbarton, the next corner kick he kicked the corner flag with the ball traveling about two yards. A one off who was superb at times in 86/87, gave Willie McStay the runaround in the 1-0 victory at the start of the season.

There isn't a vast amount of competition, to be fair.

I remember him one game beating about 5 players on the left, running into the box, only has to slot it past the keeper, everyone on their feet anticipating the onion bag getting ruffled.....only for him to slip and fall flat on his face! :lol: He was outstanding!

Gordon Durie was another I recall, who'd trip over the ball when he'd done the hard bit!

The saying " His second touch was a tackle "  was made for Gordon Durie . Hat-trick in a Cup final and the game is still classed as The Laudrup Final .

If Toral can give us a wee bit of the inventiveness that we require in the final third, then we should hopefully score more in the remaining part of the season .
