I actually see him as more a possible new Carew/Dublin rather than the new Heskey/Harewood right now.

I saw positives today, to be writing him off after today is quite frightening.

The players on the pitch get less time than ever on the ball in the premier league, and promoted teams get less time than ever to settle into their stride now.

Aggregate that down. Our sole striker doesn't, unfortunately, have the luxury of an indeterminate number of games to get used to things and find his feet.

For better or worse this is football now - we needed a striker who could adapt and start performing more or less immediately.

My god the harsh comments on here from some people are quite astounding tbh.

He has had 2 games (1 of those away to the Champions League runners up).

Instead of laying the hammer down on him maybe we should give him every bit of encouragement atm that we can........considering it would be Kodjia or Davis to fill his place!

Or maybe the doubters are hoping there is a recall option on Hogan? Lol

I'd be more worried if he'd had great service and was missing easy chances. The wide players gave him virtually nothing today.

The final ball, when there was one, was poor.

I'm a big fan of El Ghazi, but he's a shadow of the player he was a few months ago. He appears to have completely lost the ability to run at defenders anymore.

The lad is a bit of a unit
Ace. I just need 'He'll be better after a full pre-season' for a full house. Come on! ;-)

He might come good but he’s going to be bloody frustrating

I deeply apologise for gently ribbing you about football clichés. I thought the winky emoticon would show it was a harmless bit of fun.

You might want to take a vitamin supplement to thicken that skin.

He's picked the wrong profession then.

This coming from one of the most pedantic people on here. The depth of my skin is just fine BE. You decided to pick up on a post today that was from 2 months ago. Don’t you have punctuation or grammar to correct somewhere?

I may be bonkers, because I'm normally a glass half empty person, but I thought Wes did OK today. I thought he looked strong and positive but isolated at times. He'll come good quicker than JPA did.

Sorry, just realised that I quoted a post from page 1 of the thread. I honestly thought it was posted tonight.

As for corrections. Nope, still enjoying my two months off work.
