Weíre doing well, so far so good. Slow start but I canít complain about the last month or so. Wolves aside who are a different class in this league weíre up there on merit and weíll stay up there.

amazed Norwich have gatecrashed the top six - they really did look shite against us.

They were awful at the start of the season, either side of losing to us (when we were pretty poor) they also lost 4-0 at Millwall and 3-1 at home to Sunderland somehow.

Looks like one of those teams that are improving as the season goes on, they certainly have the players for it.

Poor old Hogan, he's even completely anonymous on his own thread!

I wasnít sure he touched the ball when he came on today, but he did. 4 times. Same number of times as his last appearance.

Strange choice of a stick to beat him with that he didn't do anything in the few minutes he came on and played out of position today. He does however look completely unsuited to our ''style''. Terrible signing by Bruce, needs to be moved on for our finances and him.

In his last 45 minutes of football heís touched the ball 8 times. The least we should expect from a £12m striker in the Championship is that he gives us a chance of scoring a winner.  One of the worst, most limited players Iíve ever seen.

Weíve managed not just to make £27m disappear, but with it the assets acquired. One literally dumped as far away as possible in Australia, and the other has been handed one of those magic disappearing cloaks from Lord of The Rings.

He isn't and wasn't worth £12m. We had our pants pulled down, that wasn't his fault. He's had what? 30-40 Championship games before he joined us? It didn't take a genius to work out that planting long balls at him wouldn't really work or asking him to hold the ball up. He's not a unit, but he is a good finisher with good movement who is now totally out of form and confidence after being poorly used by us.

A shining example of our shit transfer policy.

The won the Argus Villa player for a day competition comment still makes me chuckle.
Bruce chucking him on to play left wing was bizarre.
Not his fault but he is completely out of his depth.

I agree that in general he looks crap but he doesn't come on in the best of circumstances a lot of the time. 2-0 at Wolves when we hadn't had a shot all game, he wasn't going to do much. Today having to try and get up to the pace of a derby and again when we hadn't created too much. He isn't suited to our style of play which begs the question as to why we signed him. Bruce saw a bloke who had scored a few goals at this level and signed him without realising he wouldn't fit in to his shit style of football.

Itís not a case of Hogan improving more a system we need to play to suit him. As a footballer simply he is not good at anything. Canít head, canít control and canít hold on to the ball and bring other players into the game. He was a goal scorer in a team that played to his strength so unless we can do that I suggest we sell him.

To be fair to him, he was stuck out on the left wing and out of our attacking options is probably the one least suited to playing there.  Shows how highly Bjarnason is now thought of when a hideously out of position Hogan is brought on ahead of him.

well we overpaid but so has everyone recently. Just look at his goals for brentford and that tells you all you need to know. Passed to him on the floor, headers from good crossing. taps-in from sustained attacking pressure. Long HOOFS-UP for him to win and score from conspicuous in their absence. I think Bruce was drunk when he bought him.
