I think there's a decent footballer in Hogan. It hasn't quite happened here for him yet and it might not but I think he's a useful player to bring off the bench, albeit an expensive one.

How on earth is that remotely true?  He hasn't done a single useful thing when coming on as a sub.  All he did on Wednesday was give the ball away twice.  The two appearance before that he touched the ball something like 4 times in each game.  How is that useful whatsoever?  I'd much rather see somebody like O'Hare, who came on and was industrious and attacking at the same time.

I didn't say it was true, it's just my opinion. You disagree, that's fine.

I agree with you Clampy from what I saw @ Brentford and his previous record he is good player, its not his fault we don't create the chances he needs or give him a decent run of games.......no one can be judged when they are coming on for 10/15 minutes @ the end of games   


A player like Hogan will always look shit when he's replacing another striker when we're either shutting up shop or lumping it to save a game.

When he starts a couple of games with KD as a partner, then a full and proper assessment can be made. 20 mins late in game is not a good benchmark, with the rest of the team consolidating the win at that stage and not pushing for a win from the first whistle.

Plus we're not much good at countering, it feels to me. He's part of the reason why that's the case sometimes, because he can't really hold it up for long enough to link up with runners, but he doesn't even get the chance to nick a cheap one or two when the other team is chasing the game.

How many times did he touch the ball today then?

Just cut our losses on him.

A real chance to get involved today.

File under B for Balaban.

Sell in January, why did Bruce buy him? He certainly hasnít used him well, but Hogan hasnít taken his chances either

Words fail me. Even more hopeless than I thought possible. Up there with Tonev for complete lack of talent and footballing ability.

I am also reminded of Balaban in his pomp.
He offers the square root of nothing. Christ knows what has happened to him since we were conned.

Huge missed opportunity today. Played alongside Davis for almost 90 minutes, even accounting for the fact he spent a wasted 15 minutes on the right wing.

It's just not going to work for him and us is it. I'm convinced there's a decent player there but I'm getting increasingly convinced we'll never see him appear in a Villa shirt.

Time to move on in January I think.

If we can see this, I do not understand why Bruce canít and played him today.

Agreed. Hopeless today. Flog him in January, get some money back and reinvest it while weíre still in the mix.

Out of loyalty because he signed him Iím guessing. He shouldnít have started, and when we made the second sub he should have been replaced by OíHare like for like but they left him on and took off Snodgrass instead. That was poor from Bruce.
