Hogan is one of the most miserable players I have ever seen, his whole demeanour was of someone who really did not want to be here - I suppose it is to be expected when your only brief is to work hard and run into channels

Lets see if he starts smiling now

I'd be fucking miserable in his position too. Having had an attack built around him before then pretty much not being used since a big transfer. Before anyone chips in with him being paid a fortune, it may soften the blow somewhat but the vast majority of footballers like playing the game, not just getting a big wedge every month.

I imagine he hasn't stopped smiling since Bruce was sacked.

Imagine coming to work every day and your boss who hired you to do one specific thing, something your resume is built around, something you have proved at a former employer you did very well indeed, puts you in a completely foreign situation at your new company where you donít get utilized correctly and get no support to actually do what you are good at.

Look, Hogan isnít perfect and Iím sure heíll concede he could have done better, but fuck me Bruce completely wasted this opportunity. And as we can all see he found a way to do it with lots of other players at the club, especially the forwards.

I've been the same.

He's got no excuses now.  A manager who has got the best out of him previously, and a style of play that suits him.  I really hope he proves me wrong.

Iím looking to Saturday and if heís there, great. If heís not, equally, because our new manager is calling it. Maybe later, maybe not.
I just want to give the new manager and assistants the benefit of the doubt on al our players.

Richards would be washing the players car if he was on my payroll.

Although, if Richards suddenly flourished under the new leadership I might say, go for it, sunbeam.

I do wonder, Terry would have watched Richards ''train'' last season, he may well have felt bad for him that he wasn't involved at all and be happy to at least get him training regularly with the first team.

Who knows what Terry witnessed last year.j

Didn't impress too much he came on for the Republic of Ireland last night and put in one absolutely woeful cross towards the end.

He was awful. Got bollocked by McLean for not collecting a pass to him that was a few feet away. had a tame header straight to their keeper and then the awful cross you mentioned. That was the total of his contribution.  If he's going to start producing anything like we thought he would there is going to have to be a monumental change of attitude.

It's a shame.  He has a massive opportunity and you would have expected him to be busting a gut to catch Smith's eye.
