Are Ireland really that short of strikers

He wasn't too interested in playing for Ireland not too long ago. The cynic in me is a little sceptical of Scotty (Sean) Hogans motives here.

Out of interest what is the Irish heritage and thus link for his eligibility

I believe the Irish FA have what is called a "flexible approach" when it comes to that question for any decent player. Bless em :)

I think he sneezed when he was outside Molly Malone's once.

Given that the news here this morning that Kevin Doyle has retired from all football with immediate effect on health grounds, I would say yes.

Doyle is suffering from constant headaches which he attributes to heading the ball, he has also suffered two concussions so far this season.  He's being very wise IMO.

He has Irish grandparents. Grandparents count in most cases, as far as International football selection goes.

I would have thought his surname was enough proof of lineage.

Thanks. We'll good luck to him,!! Villa players with republic Ireland often have a connection.

If I were Hogan I's be looking for a move - things are not working out for him at VP.

Exactly. He's called Hogan!

I agree. Playing under Bruce is destroying his confidence and reputation.

It's just not happening, and it's not for the want of effort. I'd wonder if we could cut a deal with Brentford, send him back and take the little ginger lad in midfield, if only to stop the fucker bossing us like Paul Scholes.

I think Hogan is a good player but could do with a run in the team of three or four games to give him a decent chance of getting some chances and goals. Added to the fact Bruce doesn't seem to know how to play to his strengths - despite buying him -  it's very difficult for him to get opportunities in 15-20 minute cameos.

There's no way either Davis or Kodjia is going to be dropped for Hogan at the moment.

He can offer something different like he did Saturday.  He's never going to be a holder up of the ball but can get in behind defences if the right balls are delivered to him. He might as well not be there if as we have done previously just lumped balls in his general direction. As Risso has stated, Davis and Kodja are our starters every time.

Agree with that, he's just not suited to the style we play and looks terribly ineffective as a result.  We desperately need another option like Davis in the squad to rotate with him when needed.  I do feel for him, but as you say, it just isn't working.
