If you watch his goals on YouTube they're mostly good finishes but definitely don't look the sort of goal you'd get in the premier league or involve much skill etc

I hope I'm wrong but I haven't seen anything to suggest he's worth what we paid

With kodjia, frustrating as he can be, you could tell he had something from day one

Watched him closely in the pre match warm up and when he came on for a short stint (where he barely got a touch) .

He`s a stocky lad and doesn't appear to have much pace - slightly overweight?

It was interesting watching him having shots in on the keeper - he was shocking , poor control, mis-hit most of his shots at goal and didn't look too interested .
Hopefully he will pick up fitness pre-season and get some vital goals for us next year.

I am not too sure about these comments tbh

He's shown (in this league) he can score with his head and with either foot. If he gets through one on one he can certainly find the back of the net (seemed to get a lot of his goals this way). He set up JK's first goal with a great pass before he went off injured against Norwich I wouldn't write him off just yet.

Not generally ones where you can stand in the middle of he box and be found by a simple through ball. You probably need an outstanding attribute to get a lot of goals: pace, heading ability, finishing ability, skill, power etc

I will very much give him a chance and could easily be wrong, but it's an opinion that's all

Edit: actually I'm being a bit unfair - I thought he did have some moments of real quality in the Forest game. But the pass through to Kodjia against Norwich really wasn't anything special - I'd expect any player to be able to do that. With the exception of gestede and NRC

I think Hogan shows real goal scoring instincts ... let's give him the chance to prove it.

Didn't I read that a poster had discussed Hogan with some Brentford fans who opined that whilst he would score all day at Championship level, they didn't think he'd cut it in the Prem?

Let's cross that bridge when we come to it, I hope we can put together a very competitive side for next year and we will then need to think about a major rebuilding project if we go up.

From what I have seen of him so far, I think he would be far better suited to a formation with a 'number 10' style playmaker.  He makes some good runs off the ball, but there isn't really anyone in the side at the moment to put him in.  He isn't going to be the sort who you can pump balls up to and expect it to stick.

Yup, he'd probably do best with Jack in the team. Then again, I said that about McCormack.

I haven't seen enough of him yet to say what I think of him so far. He's probably still settling in to his new suroundings.

McCormack and jack want to play in the same position

I think at Brentford he did play lone striker with a link man behind
