I would sell him this summer, just don’t think he’s ever going to be good enough for us and I reckon we could still get a decent fee off of someone down south
I was suggesting extending his loan until January and then either recalling him then or selling him with 18 months remaining on his contract. He doesn't become 'worthless' at the 12 month point either so why would we release or pay off?Thought it was 2022, thats what i was saying.
If loaned out, what happens next summer, to me he would be released with no fee or pay off.
So wages and a million down the drain.
I agree, was getting a bit mixed up there.I was suggesting extending his loan until January and then either recalling him then or selling him with 18 months remaining on his contract. He doesn't become 'worthless' at the 12 month point either so why would we release or pay off?
I think he has shown he has enough potential to try and make a real crack at getting into the 11 and at the very least a regular on the bench.You still believe it? I think he'll be sold.
I don’t think I’ve ever wanted a player to succeed more. His attitude appears exemplary and he’s one of us.Delighted to see Doc back.
Said from Day One, I believe he will be a first team regular.
Sorry MU, I wasn’t meaning a direct comparison there between Davis and Doc.Tbf mate, I watched Doc against Hearts for Hibs and he had a very poor game.
Equally, I went down to Shrewsbury to see him a couple of times and he was the best man on the park.
I don't get your comparison with Davis though.
Davis is a deep, holding midfielder, while Docherty is a box to box athletic type of player.
He would struggle in games when teams are defending deep against us, but may offer something when teams come on to us.
I'd love to see him make it with us, but I've got my doubts tbh.
Biggest pre season of his life coming up, whenever that may be.
Docherty is a central midfielder and Kamberi is a striker?I think he should be given the chance to prove himself in the role they played Kamberi. When quick feet and dynamism doesn’t work (Kent) he has that “run through walls” approach that might be the alternative we need against a 10 man defence. He has a good touch and a very good finisher from almost anywhere.
Sorry MU, I wasn’t meaning a direct comparison there between Davis and Doc.
Just in general, we willingly cut our midfield numbers down by letting the likes of King and Docherty go last year and ended up having to flog Davis within an inch of his life after the break.
He hasn't really shown that at a rate worthy of considering him an option in all honesty.to be honest we are going to need a squad, not just 11 players..it's a long season.
Greg has shown at Hibs he can score and assist, he will be on low wages, I would definetly keep him.
Scott Allan is murder. He's nowhere near good enough for our bench.Who? Allan is the only one that would get close to our bench and that wouldnt exactly be popular
I don't disagree with this, I just don't see who else they could offer without it being a laughably bad oneScott Allan is murder. He's nowhere near good enough for our bench.
Docherty wouldn't make our bench and Hibs didn't exactly miss Kamberi when he was on loan at Rangers.
Boyle, Kamberi, Dykes... jobbers just like Barker, Jones and Stewart.
