He's had chances though. A couple in the Hull game although the ball maybe didn't quite run for him at those crucial moments (sums up his Villa career). Through early on at Cardiff and hit Etheridge. Mis kick the other night from 6 yards.

Let's not say he's been completely starved of opportunities this season.

A panic buy with no thought to it whatsoever.

See also R. McCormack.  In the region of 25m spent on those pair in one season.  Don't mind Hogan and he seems a decent lad, but he just looks so ineffective at the moment.

He needs 2 or 3 decent ones in a game to give him the belief the next one will come.  Then he might not snatch so much.  Kid needs a break.

Just think what we could have done with the cash wasted on this pair.

TBH, I'm not worried about him at all. Needs a decent #10 and some decent possession football.. he'll come good I'm sure of it.

With a decent no 10 plus Kodjia he won't be in the team surely?

I really don't think he will.  He won't get a game at all if Kodjia stays fit, other than as a sub maybe.  He has no pace, no real presence and he looks to me like one of those limited players that is OK when he has the a lower league team built around him as was the case at Brentford.  He's another waste of cash, sadly.

He's like a cheap Michael Owen without the pace

A good finisher (I do think better than he's showing) and can run in behind, but really doesn't seem to have the all round game

He hasn't shown much in the time that he's been here so far, so I would like to think that we haven't seen the best of him yet simply because we haven't played to his strengths...more worrying for me is that he blatantly isn't good enough for the Premier League should we somehow manage to get promoted so he's one of the many players that are going to have to be sold on if and when we do. Saying that, a lot of them are still yet to prove that they are good enough for us in the Championship.

I want to like him and believe he's better than his current Vila career suggests. His movement and desire to get behind defences is admirable: the current coaching set-up and / or players don't seem able to deliver a style of play that exploits his game.
I think with a more assured defence, the introduction of a more dynamic and mobile holding MF and a more offensive gameplay, Hogan would flourish.
... so, we won't see it under the current regime, then!

Davis is currently ahead of him in the pecking order as well.

I'm sure Bruce's replacement will have a plan. For him and the squad.

Wasted it on more Bruce tat if current evidence is anything to go by.
