Whilst I appreciate D&D, not even close mate. 

Iirc the Mc Ginlay/Walker partnership started fairly slowly, i see know reason why Doyle/Dapo can’t yield 25-30 goals between them this season.

The third goal yesterday was straight off the practice ground. If the opposition close down the centre backs when we have a goal kick, one of the options they use is a long ball out to Jones pushed up on the right. He often gets his head to it, with a view to feeding Isgrove. Yesterday it went to Doyle, who chested a lovely return to Jones who kept running.

Saw it plenty of times last year, and if stuff like this keeps coming off, then goals/partnerships could flourish.

Indeed. I remember Evatt describing exact tactic in the "Barrowcelona" interview he did prior to joining us.

It tickles me that some Ipswich fans seem to think they are a bigger club than us, in fact they seem to think they are the biggest club in this league... Hope they think the same when they are still in it next season 😁

To be fair, they'll be the biggest club in League Two.

Just to bring a bit of reality to proceedings, Doyle has yet to score from open play in 7 league games.

We had two matches with 70+ percentages and about 50 attempts at goals and got 1 point. 

So whilst we all bask in the glow of a proper performance to which Doyle was integral I think his days are numbered longer term, particularly given Evatt's talk about stretching defences with more pace etc, I definitely see Doyle as the weak link in the team currently and an area for improvement.

Queue the pelters! 🤪 

PS Who said Stockdale was shite btw, we never see Doyle score those kind of goals!

Doyle is FAR from a "weak link". He does so much work off the ball, I'm amazed he can still run off the pitch when he gets subbed. He contributes massively to the way we play.

But we hadn't scored the previous two?

We did score in one remember! Lee on that occasion and it was ruled out. Can't blame Doyle for everything. 

Perhaps that has something to do with the opposition defending well and making it difficult for us. Something that was acknowledged by Evatt.

He's the first line of defence, a hell of a character to have in the dressing room, and bags of experience to pass on.

I can, missing a one on one twice directly before this, then getting in an offside position!! 🤪

He wasn't offside by current rules.

Every striker misses from time to time- if he was that good he wouldn't be playing division 3 football. 

There was a stat on the TV the other day, he's something like 4th or 5th on the list of highest scoring strikers in the leagues. Only the likes of Kane ahead. Remarkable.
