He's a very strange looking footballer. All torso with short legs.  When he's trying to get a sprint on, you can see his legs are going ten to the dozen, but to very little effect with all defenders catching him no trouble.

I know a bloke that sitting at a table his head is above every one else, then when he stands up he is the shortest person in the room.

Maybe he just has a big cushion.

He looked good when he came on. Pity that through ball from Onomah was a bit too heavy.

Oh yes. That ball was superb, just a fraction too far in front of Hogan but what brilliant vision from Onomah.

It's one league goal in something like 19 appearances now, which is pretty crap whatever excuses there are.

I suspect the not finishing games is a direct correlation of not scoring in them.

Only the old uns will remember him but Ron Wylie had the same physique.  He was a very canny player and more than made up for his physical shortcomings with intelligence and became a very valuable team member.  Hogan will find his niche.

It's very hard to score when in about 75% of those appearances he's not had the ball. But why not make yet another player a scapegoat

Quite Brian.  Wylie was a very intelligent player for us, sometimes too intelligent for his team mates; if there can be such a thing.  As you know, but maybe others don't, he went on to have a fairly decent career for the noses after he left us.

I've just checked his age, he's 84 and our old friend Wiki tells us that his grandson Alex Grove is a Scottish international at Rugby Union.  I didn't know that.

Are 12m strikers immune from scoring from the bench?

He started the first 3 games. Didn't score. Tough.
