Only the same idiots as last season . Yes Piddle that's you

Why get so touchy and insulting, it's only an opinion, we are allowed them and it is a forum for opinions as far as I know?? Very rude person.

Watched that Burton match live and he did absolutely nothing for 70 mins till he was taken off, a proper striker working the centre halves and we would have won that match easily. 

So slag me off as much as you want but not hearing much evidence of what he does do.

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!

No problem with genuine opinions, never sure why they get shouted down so readily, it would be boring if everyone thought the same.  But isn't that goal v Oxford classed as open play? It was our only goal headed in from a corner under Evatt if I'm not mistaken, something to celebrate.

You are entitled to your opinion even though it seems you can't appreciate his overall game.He was fantastic on Saturday IMHO even if he hadn't scored the penalty.

As for being rude I try to only give it back to those who dish it out and you have been very insulting in past so there you go.

No problem with Doyle, he gives it 100% every game. He does have strengths & weaknesses obviously. We did well to get him into League 2 last season as he would walk into a lot of sides at this level. I'm thinking Philliskirk & Reeves scenario, both did us proud but Evatt will be looking out for Walker/McGinlay upgrades as is only natural. 

  Doyle does a hell of a lot of unselfish running that goes unnoticed by some that creates space & once he nets from open play is likely to hit a streak.

The result and people you go with makes a huge difference. I still say Ipswich is a shit away day as in crap pubs, crap beer and a pain in the arse of a trip.

 

I always thought that but we found a few decent places most had bouncers so large groups had no chance, could’ve done with an earlier train leaving ipswich not sure if it was reduced timetable or the norm

Aye it is all about opinion. 

Your last bit though- no evidence? Several folk have offered just that. The data you seem to be wanting won't readily be available to fans on here, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. That seems to be the thrust of you argument.

You could explore the Internet for such evidence, I would imagine some is available, but I doubt the club will release much of what he does for obvious reasons.

Rudy is your man for such things.

It’s not going to get published but to my eye I reckon Doyle’s running stats are high I’d say a player like Doyle is running 8k 

I reckon his closing down stats are high, Same with his pass completion and his conversion rate. 
He drops very deep to receive the ball 

Looks to get it out wide and gets himself in the box

His agility and movement is exceptional 

His closing down always put the keepers and defenders under pressure 

And he scores goals and assists

Not sure what more he can do.

Hes absolutely pivotal to us

He's not tall or fast enough.
He doesn't do tricks and flicks
He won't score 30 this season.

I think that covers the anti-Doyle arguments.

Brilliantly explained. If Evatt would have kept him on against Burton, and had the two chances Kerchunga had, think we would have won 2-0.

I was a little critical that he should have scored more last season but I really couldn’t have asked for more from him.
 

You always think your striker should have a 100% conversion but we wouldn’t have been promoted without him.

I think so, cliche alert but you can’t teach that strikers instinct. He just looked very tired against Burton but Ipswich he looked a lot sharper

Doyle has looked much sharper and fitter all season. His work rate is phenomenal and even though he does miss a few sitters he is always a threat and he assists many of our goals - top scorers of the league

Like @woolli said he gets himself in positions to get those chances.

Is he our highest goal scorer in a season since Super John?
