Mentions of Dieng on the Stevenage forum below. Almost all positives. Apparently he returned to QPR for family reasons.

- He's settled in well. Gone under the radar somewhat. Not made any f**k ups and no one is talking about the goalkeeping position which makes a change

- He cost us one game with a howler 2-3 weeks ago. But I agree he's been very good

- Stepped up and claimed the GK shirt

- Dieng is the best thing since Chris Day 4/5 years ago

- Dieng is something else. Needs to be our number one for this season. Calm, composed

- Dieng has to start every game

- Dieng looked confident, coming for crosses

- Special shout out to Dieng. Not at fault for any

- Dieng 7/10, some good punches second half and a good strong left handed save first half

I give it 5 mins into his debut when  he turns into sh**e 😀

I'm only guessing but ………... Parish was dropped immediately after making a number of mistakes against Livi.  Hamilton was at fault for the first goal against St J and his distribution was erratic.  Could be JM is as fed up as I am and will try out a keeper with a better record than our current goalies.  Good luck to the new lad and I imagine either or both Hamilton/Parish are mighty disappointed/on their way out.

Genuinely not sure what Hamlton could have done with St Johnstone;s first goal other than be about a foot taller.

I like Hamilton and some kicking aside, think he's been decent and is getting better with more games. I feel his whole time here I've been in the minority though.

Think a number of fans have been against him since day one due to the "fee" and he was pretty shaky earlier in the season tbf. I think with confidence he'll be a good keeper who occasionally kicks the ball out of play. Not a major problem and not worth the reaction it gets at Dens when it happens. Hysteria.

Also think because of the above, the same fans have rewritten history with Parish who let in a number of bad goals for us in both seasons and was steady at best.

If the defenders didn't pass the ball to him so often he wouldn't look so bloody bad with the ball at his feet.

It's clearly the main weakness in his game and yet he's probably touched the ball with his feet more than our strikers this season.

He played a dozen times for League Two Stevenage earlier this season and kept a few clean sheets.

It's worth taking a look at the highlights from his debut against Norwich in the cup. Looks very decent.

 

Nothing there says 'very decent to me, made the saves he should have made and got lucky three times when forwards should have scored. Came steaming out for a ball that was never his and wiped out a defender at one point - not good.

As my auld granny used to say - If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.  Then again, she talked a lot of sh**e most of the time! 😁

The assessment of the Stevenage fans was that he was superb against Norwich and I thought he made some decent saves in the highlights.

Let's see what he looks like for ourselves when he's in Dundee colours.

I know we disagree on it but this really gets to me. He's a professional keeper and it shouldn't matter his position, he should be more than comfortable with the ball at his feet and his kicking should be spot on. Better than 50% of defenders, I'd argue. 

He was certainly comfortable enough at the start of the season.

I wouldn't let Parish go until the end of the season. He kept some vital clean sheets and made some big saves last season. He's arguably still the best keeper at the club and could easily end this season as No 1 so I wouldn't be letting him leave any time soon.

I agree .

Parish isn't the greatest keeper we have ever had but by and large is reliable and for me is the most consistent keeper at Dens .

 

Hope the new lad is the answer to what I think a lot of us believe  is a problem area for us .

Unless ive missed something guys - a take it there is talk off Parish or Hamilton leaving due to bringing in a keeper as wouldn't see the need for us to have 3 keepers fighting for number 1

No way, was Hamilton at fault with that goal. Unbelievable.

I think he’ll be our first choice keeper on the basis that I don’t think JM will be wasting his time and budget on substitutes.

The rumoured 6 figure fee has brought unrealistic expectations. Similar to the top 6 budget rumour it's caused more harm than good.

Regardless of fee rumours or even the St Mirren howler, I’m of the opinion that he is just not a particularly good goalkeeper. I think he has moments of brilliance and I don’t think we’ve had a keeper that’s come out and taken as many crosses/corners since Rab,  but that is too often offset by moments of concern. His distribution is nothing short of horrific and I think his positional awareness is suspect.
