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.

To be fair, Smith will base his decisions more on what he sees in training than a sub appearance for the ROI.

He'll base it on everything he sees and a fizzing performance for Ireland would have surely helped his case more than one that lead people to question his attitude?

It was a fifteen minute cameo for an incredibly limited international team and he won't exactly be sharp from match practice. Let him work with Deano and come Christmas he'll have won us a few points with winning goals, no sweat.

Hogan isn’t going to just walk into our side. And I’m sure just because his former boss is the new one he’s not expecting to. He’ll have to prove himself. But like many players in our squad he’s been underperforming under a useless lump who never gave him a chance based on the “tactics” employed. That will change now. It’s up to Hogan (and the others) to make the most of it.

Agree, TV. Unless Smith decides we've not got the necessary tools to set up to suit Hogan, I have no doubt that we'll set up to suit Hogan. That's how Smith plays, it's how we'll play. It's why we bought Hogan, time to get our money's worth.

Over to you, Scott...

Smithy said about Hogan vs Norwich "that he never got the service"

"We never really got the ball down the side of the centre backs which would have been really ideal for Scottie. He made some really good runs that we didn't quite see"

 I put that down to the inept Hourihane who fails in forward passing.
Whelan there to screen and move on the ball
Whereas Hourihane is the more progressive ball playing midfielder supposedly ,but fails to do this.

Grealish too was not making thru balls or passing quick enough to Hogan's runs.


"Though in hindsight kodjia would have been better option "

Smithy assessing things but he got that one wrong playing Hogan  .

It's going to be interesting to see how he gets on now Smith is here so i'd give him a bit more time but he picks up too many injuries for my liking.

As we should have known when we signed him.He had two half seasons at Rochdale and Brentford combined and and was often injured during his time at both clubs

I just dont know what he is good at

Well he scored 21 goals in 33 games in this division under our current manager so let's not write him off just yet.

Big problem is his confidence is shot after two years of Bruceball.

I imagine Dean has already seen in training that this is completely different to the confidence he was showing in his year at Brentford.

Would love to be proven wrong but I don't see it happening for him here like McCormack who won't be getting another chance even with the change of manager.

As we've found to our cost over last 20 years once a striker loses his goalscoring touch here they rarely get it back. I can only really think of Dublin who had a couple of lean seasons and then had a prolific season before he finished his career here in defence.

I think he might have had more joy than Abraham did tonight, The ball was largely on the deck and QPR didn't have any brick shithouses. Apart from the concourse at the School End.
