Their does seem to be a lack of paitence with new players nowadays if they don't hit the ground running.

Absolutely. His time with us has been disrupted by injuries, until he has had an unbroken run of games and the chance to develop a partnership with Kodjia then we cannot form any sort of informed judgement.

Be nice to get the occasional player who just got on with things.  We've been told to be patient with loads of players who then just don't amount to anything.

There is an extreme case of verbal diarrea on this thread. A real steaming pile of fly infested horseshit.

Please do clarify which posts don't meet your standards and, if you like, share an opinion yourself.

I don't think any forward would be able to develop an understanding with Kodjia, he does his own thing. They combined well for Kodjia's goal last week mind but I don't see that being a regular occurrence.

Playing with two up top leaves us very short in midfield particularly if the duo are Jedinak and Lansbury who aren't the most mobile.

Wasn`t at the game so am unable to comment on his performance - did he miss a sitter?

No. It was a chance he should have scored, but it wasn't a sitter.

He does look a poor one footed player with very bad first touch. However I hope we can get something out of him to justify big transfer fee.

There have been lots of changes in personnel this season and maybe they haven't gelled yet but some have been quite disappointing to say the least.
My comments of the 6th and 9th April about Hogan are based upon a very short observation of him I admit but I wasn't impressed with his body language or ball control.
Lets hope he comes good next season -

He is good at possibly one thing and the reason we bought him. He should have at least hit the target. He has so far been a complete and utter waste of a lot of money.

Without a doubt need to give me next season  to see if  he cuts the grade  or not.  Some  substance in stating  that it may be difficult to play with  Kodjia.  There again I am not a qualified  football  coach so will leave it to the professionals to work that one out.

For 12 million I'd expect him at least to hit the target. He's a professional footballer, his position is striker. We bought him because he's was good at that for his last club so it's reasonable to expect him to at the very least hit the target bearing in mind it's his forte. He offered nothing else to the team during his stint on the pitch.

He scored goals for fun in a team that knew how to get the ball from midfield to the forwards quickly, we're never going to be that team under Bruce.

He didn't set the price, his last club did.

Even Gareth Bale misses the target sometimes & he cost 80 million
