That'll Dindane do for me!

That'll Dindane do for me!

'Aruna Dindane will now go on a goalscoring spree following his hat-trick against Wigan', not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts that I want to see happen but I am not entirely sure this will happen to be honest...

Firstly, the title, I have been waiting to use the phrase 'that'll ding dang do for me,' which is from Max and Paddy, so with this being about Dindane it was just about perfect to make that small amendment to use here.

Anyway, whilst Dindane has himself said that his first premier league goal would see more to follow - and technically he was right as a couple more followed that 1st in the same game - I am not convinced that he is a prolific striker, although I obviously hope he does prove to be!

It is clear that strikers thrive on goals, if the Ivorian cannot grow in confidence from that treble he never will, although once again - as I said when he signed - I do not think that we should pin all our hopes on him, or even expect too much.

We need a striker to score 10-15 goals this season, hopefully he can but if not then I think that if between them - Dindane, Freddy P, Tommy Smith, Kanu, Danny Webber and even John Utaka I guess - they can score some 15-20 goals at least, which you would hope is possible as it is only 3 league goals each, this 'should' be enough for us...

  • What the poll asked - Will Dindane's hat-trick spark a goal rush?

  • How you voted - Yep, goals breed confidence 55%, Perhaps, so long as someone does that'll do 39%, Nope, he isn't going to be prolific 6%

    Before we move on what are your thoughts on what the last poll concluded? You know what to do, thoughts below please guys...

    I think we're all HOPING..... I didn't vote for him going on a goal fest, even though I'd be thrilled if he did. One thing that hat-trick will bring though is tighter marking of him by the opposition from now on. Looking back over his career he's not a prolific scorer. But who knows, things change. Let's hope in Dindanes case that applies, and a few others get in on the act as well to help him out. We need those goals.

    Cornypomp you make good points , we will need others like Freddie, Yebda and OHara to get scoring, this will pull defenders away from "ZineDin-dane" and get him some space and time. My only concern aboutthe player is he seems quite slight.

    Yes, hope so. But a note of matt caution. Benjani a few seasons ago, would score a few hatricks & then nothing for 6 or 7 matches. The test will come with the 2 physical away games coming up.

    Dindanne has the capability of freeing himself from the defenders. If you all noticed well, although Dindanne was playing up front with Piquionne, he wasn't a pure striker. He was very much behind Freddy and was being allowed space to roam behind the striker. I am sure that this was Hart's plan to give the time a player such as Dindanne requires. If he wasn't, he would not have been in a position to feed that amazing pass to Freddy for the 2nd!
