I keep hoping he will improve. Looked shite again today.

To be fair to him, he was stuck out on the left wing and is probably one of the least suited to playing there out of attacking options.  Shows how highly Bjarnason is now thought of when a hideously out of position Hogan I'd brought on ahead of him.
Even Bjarnason's Mom doesn't think highly of him. Now he IS shit.

We knew what we were getting with Hogan when we signed him and not once since then have we played to his strengths. Criticising him for being crap as a left winger is farcical.

I agree, he is properly shit.

He's appeared in 24 league games, and scored 1 league goal.  He's never going to have a team based around him like he had at Rochdale and Brentford, because he just isn't good enough to keep the likes of Davis and Kodjia out of the team, and his all round game is non-existent.  I agree that the way Steve Bruce sets the team up isn't going to suit him, but then players have to take some responsibility for their perfomances themselves.

The vast majority of his appearances have been 10 minutes at the end of the game, mostly up front on his own with the nearest teammate about 30 yards away. The way Bruce has us set up to play most the time Lionel Messi would look shite.

Signing him was undoubtedly a mistake and the club should just take the loss on the chin and move him on. I have no doubt though he could go somewhere else in the Championship and get 20 goals available season.

That's not true, he averaged over an hour of playing time per game last season, and it's over half an hour a game this season.

An average skewed by the fact he started the first three games of this season when we had no other strikers.

He hasn't started a game since mid-August and in all but one game coming off the bench he's had less than 30 mins and normally less than 20.

In any event I'm not sure what your point is. He's normally played in a system which he's completely unsuited to. He could be on the pitch all game and if he's just getting balls lumped up to him even Stevie Wonder could see he won't score.

That's it in a nutshell, not good enough to alter the other 9 outfield players to suit his game, start hawking him about now for someone to pay maybe 5 million max in January.

you cant play Hogan on the wing. He is a good sub to have If only you play him where he should be playing.

Agree about not playing him on the wing, but he has shown nothing to suggest he is a good sub either.
Look at the impact Ohare had in 10 minutes against Wolves.
We have far better players than Hogan, Bruce keeps chucking him on to justify the ridiculous fee he paid for him.
Another Bruce fuck up.

Not once have we played Hogan the way that he should be played, with a number 10. He's useless as a winger or as a target man, that is not his fault though, thats all on Bruce.

I think we are all baffled by the Video, his goals were balls he came on to because he was put through or it broke for him.
So he is suited to a team that attacks more, the rest of his game is non existent though and he has no ability to hold the ball up which is a pretty fundamental requirement on a football pitch.
It stil begs the question why on earth did Bruce buy him?

kind of agree Chicago but we only need to get an (bad) injury to JK or KD and does not leave us a lot of cover . Id be depressed if Gabby became the No 1 striker .

Kodjia is out for the Preston game so Hogan needs to step up
