Whose pinning hopes? He looks a good player and I'd like him in the squad to develop, like Davis, because I think he will offer us something.

If you weren't at Sunderland or Cardiff, you wont have seen anything.

Home to Newcastle too, came on and looked lively. Ayew spark and a Tish equaliser, all seems a long while ago now.

Surely Hogan will not be starting next game. I would prefer Samba up front.

I always thought he was Rush-Ian but the PA bloke just called him Ru-Sian

Well I'm happy he got his first ever start and actually felt it was very tough for him in the way villa played v yeovil.

I don't think set up was right and RHM was up against the tallest player ever and others who seemed to dominate him physically .

Felt Bruce was loathe to play the youngers and his comments after were telling .

I think constantly RHM didn't have support and yes he fluffed his main chance but I would certainly keep him involved however if we get a loan of say Abrahams then we would loan him away maybe to even someone like Yeovil

You're right Skillz, he was isolated and had no support, the ball was launched in the air to him constantly. He did miss a great chance but the lad needs more minutes.

Either the player marking him is a giant or RHM is on the small side to lead the line. We really need a target up front.

He needs to cut his teeth and go out on loan to learn more about big boys football.  He will be playing against Hulk and Collosas on a weekly basis and will have to learn how to combat this.

Gsk I fear Bruce kinda put him in under a guide of giving youth a chance if they don't score 3 then it proves there not ready.

I hope he gets minutes some where down the line. Showered flashes of skillz and play just having his first start is wonderful for him and maybe he would have played the 90 if we were leading

He and Doyle Hayes were first to go off proved 'correct' but if he was on with JK and JG then he may have been scoring that goal or getting chances

After reading SB comments after the game, I'd say you're definitely right Skillz.

Needs a loan - once we've got cover

He does face a fairly big challenge. Most teams do play with one up front now. He's always going to find that really difficult. His type is pretty rare nowadays - unless you're so good that you can play for an elite side like man city

I think he might need to learn to play wide in a three

He could be Sterling esque but I think Bruce fundamentally likes the bigger burlers build rather than the technical side .
He doesn't suit Bruce style of play and RHM probably needs a loan regardless of incomings .
In some ways a good manager would adapt the play and systems to suit the players he has .

Greeny is another who could be used up top or off striker .

Brucey seems not to trust anything but experience which isn't on really .

Yes there is strong case for tried and tested and Bruce himself is tried and tested but he won't risk much I guess because he believes in his methods .

He's looked good off the bench so far

I'd hoped yday might have boosted his confidence, but I suspect it may have done the opposite

I posted on the match thread last night that the one person most likely to benefit from the introduction of Jack was RHM and what did Bruce do? Took him off!
