Is there any injury update on him or Elmo etc

From what I can remember, Hogan may feature, Jedinak and Elmo are both ready.
Elmo had 33 stitches in his mouth wound

Elmo had 31 stitches but is ready to play, Hogan isn't as bad as first thought and could even be in contention tomorrow.

He can't possibly be any worse. Boom, tish.

I think there's definitely a good player in Hogan, he just needs someone to play intelligent through balls to him.

I agree in part but surely a striker at this level should have more than one attribute. If it's all down to receiving a particular type of pass then the opposition would know exactly how to stop him.

Not really. His strength is that he's sharp when he has people near him.  It's not that he needs specific passes, it's that he needs people within 10 yards of him so his runs find gaps and create others.  He's the exact opposite of Gabby in that he's very quick over a few metres but has no great pace over longer distances and we're playing passes which are forcing him to run 20-30m.

I get what you're saying but if he had the sharpness but was also quick over distance he'd be playing in the top half of the PL.  If he was quick over a few yards and a beast he'd be basically Benteke and comfortably good enough to play higher level.  The championship is full of players who are one-trick ponies.

A fit Scott Hogan provided with the right type of service will score lots of goals. Punt it 60yds in the air to him like we were doing made no sense. As much as his second goal last night was superb I loved his first. Good cross and poachers finish to get on the end of it.

I think we've got ourselves a very good player. It does seem to me more of a confidence thing with him rather than quality but I like him a lot.

I agree. He looked really good in his first game for us away at Forest. If we can play a way that gets the most out of him he will do the job for us.

Agreed I really though he played well in that game but your right we need to play to his strength to get the best out of him which we haven't been doing so hopefully we have turned a corner with him.
