I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do against Bristol City on Friday, now he's got a bit of confidence back.

These are the big games, where we need our big players to start doing the business.

Two cracking goals, just like in Germany. But against poorer opponents. I really hope he can step up... I like us scoring four goals each game!

 Very pleased he got a brace and could have had more

But Wigan made 11 changes. Davis still has to start on Friday

he's doubtful apparently as is the Jedi and Mutton - although in the case of the latter that's a positive thing.

I think Hogan will score goals if we can stop isolating him. If we can get the ball to stick then we can push up twenty yards and midfielders can create space for Hogan to flourish.

First off Hogan has to stay injury free.
Then he can get a run of games, and hopefully the chances will start to come and goals start flowing.

So far it has all been very stop - start for him and he hasn't really had a chance to play himself in.

He has got to stop getting crocked.

Surely Davis showed in the game v Norwich how much superior he is holding up the ball and linking up with the other attacking players?

Hogan comes alive when the ball is bobbling around the area and edge of the box but from what I've seen he massively struggles to even hold onto the ball when it's played up to him.

I presume we'll only play one out and out striker tomorrow so I'd fully expect Davis to continue.

I like to see both Hogan and Davis with a midfield of Jedinak, Whelan, Hourihane and Green.

I would like two up front , but you then lose
Hourihanes strength with him too wide in that formation??

A diamond would lose Green in that

Not sure what's best???

We dont need Jedi and Whelan, replace one of the two, I'd play Whelan, with Onomah. Agree with Davis and Hogan.

I do hope we don't. Imagine Peter Withe playing on his own. What'd be the point?

Davis brings intent, and Hogan carries threat. I want to see them play together.

Mind you, once JK is fit, waddayado?

Sell him , joking  😃 Jk is very individual and is a bit of a free spirit

We have never really got him working in a cohesive team

If Davis is fit then that is thr formation that suits the players we have best, particularly in midfield.  Hourihane, Onomah and Lansbury are better in a more advanced role, whereas Whelan and Jedinak are more suited to a holding role. 

As for Kodjia, I could see him playing on the left when he comes back.

I genuinely don't know! For JK to score how many he did, just fucking wow! But could he link with Davis? Probably more up to how Davis develops.

That is an essential skill of of a target man who can can play with his back to the ball and hold things up: don't get crocked. Anticipate the tackle from behind and go down and roll over. He does not have that in his locker.

Don't play him in that role is the answer which springs to mind.
