I just don't understand two things. One, why get rid of 3 strikers in the transfer window and sign only one (leaving us with Gabby and kids as back up)? And two, why only sign a striker who's main trait is to feed off through balls when we don't play that way and what we needed was someone who could hold the ball up and bring our other forward players into the game (or even play with Hogan in a front two)? 

because we are Villa and generally seem to have no strategy in our transfer policy (glass half empty). Either that, or there is a clear plan on how we want to play and it is just taking a while for us to bed that down and get the players clicking etc. (glass half full)

I think the implication was not revelling in a player being hurt, more the relief that Gabby cannot be considered for selection.  That's the way I read it anyway.
You read it correct, Brian.

First thought when he went off on a stretcher was that sitting at home Gabby must have been thinking I am now guaranteed a starting place in the team for the next few months!!!

Hutton only went over to get a drink!
thankfully, Gabby is injured.

Whilst he's past his best, being glad a player is injured is astonshing really.
Who is glad a player is injured? I'm not :)

Gabby actually done ok in his last match and I wish he was fit and ready for action. We might bloody well need him soon.

We need that goal scoring phenomenon.

I feel very sorry for Hogan but a striker coming in January to a dysfunctional side like ours was always going to be a massive challenge for him. He is better off out of it till the summer when the club can regroup, hopefully in this league.

In the meantime Bruce needs to concentrate on the shape he needs to persist with. Gabby as the target man (and he was showing some sparks of his capabilities before his injury) in a 4-3-3 or 4-5-1. He is the only striker we have left who can play the kind of role which best suits the way this side needs to set up.

My hope is that Hogan's misfortune will force Bruce's hand - and hope is all I have.

Kodjia is the main forward. We are short. I think RHM and Gabby will both play a role when fit.

Back within 4-5 weeks is what I'm hearing on Twitter

Where you getting this from? Just did a quick scan and all that has been stated so for is the Mail saying, "Scott Hogan could be back within a month if scan results reveal his ankle injury is not as bad as first feared."

I'd be surprised if we see him again this season.

Hopefully it won't be the sort of injury that eats into pre season otherwise that will mess him up for next year aswell.

Big thing again is how do we get the best out of him. From what I saw v Barnsley he was certainly playing through the middle and Kodjia was out wide where he likes to drift anyway so to me it looks a better fit than McCormack trying to be fitted into the team.

He just needs a goal I think and then he'll be scoring at a decent rate.

Amazed at how long it's taking the club to announce what the injury is and estimated time on the sidelines.
