We agreed a fee of £300,000 for Doyle from Preston (as did Peterborough) but he has turned us down. According to the report below we are now trying to persuade Preston to loan us Moult instead

Since he left Hibs he's had one good season (2013/14) at Chesterfield (21 goals in 26 games) and a decent return last season at Oldham (15 goals in 30 games).

Would be a downgrade on Rooney I'm my opinion.

Utterly depressing stuff.

If there is even a crumb of truth to this story then I'm glad he turned us down.
Sounds like a horrendous signing.

The Northern Lights of old Aberdeen

Mean home sweet home to me

The Northern Lights of Aberdeen

Are what I long to see

I've been a wanderer all of my life

And many a sight I've seen

God speed the day when l'm on my way

To my home in Aberdeen!!

Is Mcinnes attempting to sign the ugliest team he can in an attempt to scare away the opposition?  A bold tactic.

Aye most probably load of fake shite.
If true though it just shows that one time players would jump at the chance to sign for us...Something wrong somewhere.

Sign an ex SPL Irish Ginger striker from Oldham in an attempt to replace an ex SPL Irish ginger striker who was at Oldham.  Logic is flawless.

I think there is truth in the story. Hibs reject isn't really the case as he chose to leave them. The fact he left them to join a league 2 team at that time though said it all about his view of Scottish football though so not someone I would be keen to sign. A decent player who would have done an ok job but not an upgrade and certainly not someone who is going to excite the fans into buying season tickets.

 

I think it shows just how far down our list of striker targets we have reached now and how many we have missed out on that we turned to him. That for me is now a worry!

Eoin Doyle!

As you say, hopefully a heap of shite.

Even though he's not signing for us, the fact that we tried to sign him is an indication of how desperate we're getting.

Does nobody think Sam Cosgrove can be a first choice striker? Couple of goals early doors to get confidence n he could be a player. Dont think many defences will like playing against him.
Maybe wanted Doyle as back up.

Do we share a scout with Peterborough these days. They seem to be linked with just about every target we've been rumoured to be after recently.

I smell shite.... no chance we'd get rid of Rooney and spend 300k to replace him with Doyle.  :laughing:

I don't think he was fully fit last season. I'll give him this season before totally writing him off.

I have no evidence to say that it is 100% true but the story has come from Ireland and not a Scottish Journo. Neil O'Riordan often has credible info when it comes to Irish players.

 

I may be wrong but I would suggest the story has come from someone close to Doyle and there is truth in it.

The more worrying thing for me is Michael Stewart urging the the huns to challenge us for Moult.

 

I don't think we have a chance of getting Moult, even on loan. He'd make a massive difference for them.

£300K for a back up striker? Get real min.

 

I'd rather play Coscrove than part with £300K for this bum, truly depressing, we must be on plan Z by now.

I think he'd work better with a pacy striker working alongside him. When was the last time we had a striker with any real pace?
