Why did we buy him?  We won't play it to his feet so he's wasted.

Does Paul Robinson punch Hogan after we score? Hard to tell on the replay.

I think Hogan was on his bike at that time trying to catch Gabby.  It was Chester, I think that the animal kicked out at as he began his chase to catch Gabby.  If he punched Hogan, I didn't see it.

presumably because he was available - but you are spot on - if we can't play to his strengths.

The options open to us now would be to sell him which would  be just plain stupid

Sell Kodja and get someone in who Hogan can link up too

Buy a third striker and rotate  - with the number of games we play in the Championship would be an option.

I was in the 3rd row of the Trinity and very close to the 'action', Hogan was getting more and more visibly frustrated at the punts up field in his general direction. He was never that kind of striker at Brentford, It's becoming clear that we didn't do extensive homework on him before we signed him and that our management will never play the kind of football needed to get the best out of him. It smacks once again of signing somebody based on there scoring record without thinking if he'd be a fit for the way that the club wants to play.

Yeah, I got that impression from the Upper Holte too. Gabby said something to him when he came on (probably instructions from the bench), and his body language suggested it wasn't well received!

Didn't play to his strengths which was frustrating as I'd backed him to score

He definitely punches James Chester. I wonder if the FA will get involved.....

More likely that they will ban Chester for running into Robinsons hand and foot

We need a good CF who can hold the ball up - this would benefit both Hogan and Kodjia.

I don't think I've seen someone run around as much as he did yesterday. Never stopped.

Didn't actually do anything attacking-wise, but he never stopped chasing them down.

I suppose a defensive striker is Bruce's kinda guy!

My optimistic view is that Bruce wants to play decent football - he constantly talks about the need to pass the ball better. And that Wil play to hogan's strengths 

But in the meantime he's a pragmatist who will sacrifice style for solidity

Whether he can actually deliver a quality team is another question

Knowing the FA they'll probably give Kodjia a 6 month ban for it.

We need a decent wide player in the summer.

Adomah is hit and miss and has gone off the boil massively lately so we practically have nothing on the flanks with Green injured and still inexperienced at this level.

Need to make a similar statement signing to Newcastle signing Matt Ritchie last summer.

Do that and I imagine Hogan will start getting on the end of some crosses like he did with his goal at Wigan.

Play the same way though and I fail to see how he's going to score consistently. With the negative football a forward like Kodjia with his tricks and unpredictability is really the only sort of forward who can do anything.

That's why I think Bruce needs a pre season before he can be properly judged. No pressure of points but friendlies and trainings to get a style of player that gets both strikers in the game.

If it's still happening start of next season, then I'd imagine the owner would be pretty unhappy his big investment isn't scoring.
