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

Exactly, I'm not sure we're that short on the left when you think of Green and Kodjia with Grealish to come back too.

We've a number of options.

I hope never to see Grealish on the left again. He contributes zilch and doesn't provide any support to whoever is playing at left back!

Decent attacking options. I feel sorry for whoever is playing left back with those options ahead of them.

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

Haven't we just scored eight in two matches playing with one up front?

Strong target man supported by runners from midfield?

It will never catch on

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

Mind you, once JK is fit, waddayado?

We've got a million midfielders on the books now so unless we shift a couple in the next week I'd imagine we'll be playing five for the foreseeable future.

Totall

against the unwashed he was picking the ball up wide left ten yards inside his own half where he is going to be able to fuck all. Number ten all day for me hasnt got the pace to play wide

Likewise for the second half against Brighton behind Crash Davis. Exploiting opportunities on the edge of the opposition box is his natural game.

Absolutely

Makes him difficult to pick up and draws fouls. Him playing wide left is a dogs dinner

Think he will be the one to benefit from the Snodgrass signing

Is it just me or does he have a habit of miskicking in front of goal, especially in front of the holte end?

Wish we'd gone for assombalonga

I thought he looked quite average against our mediocre defence the other night. No better than what we have really.

Not a world beater. But has pace, power and a knack for goals. Can lead the line unlike hogan

We needed another striker and he was proven to do that at this level ?
