How is it that Hepburn Murphy can make himself available for a pass and genuinely look a threat the moment he comes on, but Hogan canít for every single minute he plays?

Yeah, Iíd like to blame the manager for his woes but itís not true. Heís not done nearly enough to justify his place. I accept that we donít play to his strengths, but you have to show some kind of effort to adapt to your teammates, and I havenít seen it.

Itís made more stark by the fact that kids like Davis and RHM come in from nowhere and have some impact, just doing the basics.

right up there with Bosko as one of our all-time transfer fuck-ups

We saw the difference a goal makes last night. Terrific header for the first goal, but even more so for the Snodgrass goal. Both showed he does have a bit of movement to create space for himself, both were good headers.  Had Snodgrass looked up and passed early in the second half, he would have had a tap in for another.

I think the difference was Grealish was feeding to the ball Adomah whilst he was on the run past the fullback, so he gets his cross in early, this allows the forward to make his run and receive the ball. Normally we feed the ball sideways to Adomah who then has to beat the fullback before attempting a cross and the forward has made the run early but doesn't get the ball. The pace of the attacks made all the difference.

The ball got moved a lot quicker and that helped. He was a lot busier after he scored, running to close, or driving with the ball. His header was superb and the one that Steele saved before our second was excellent too.

Hopefully that display and goal will do him the world of good and get his Villa career up and running. I hope he can do a Juan Pablo Angel and now start banging them in. Which got me thinking how many different players have we had that have taken a season to settle in before they came good?

Lovely headers in the game, hopefully with some confidence he'll really add to the team.

Better. Another 15 goals by the end of the season and he will be starting to look like a  good  signing!

In fairness last 2-3 appearances he has started to lift his game, hopefully with the monkey ofnot scoring off his back it will start to click with him.

Agnew has been coaching him one-to-one so maybe we will start to see the player we thought he was. Delighted for him last night, top draw headers and his running off the ball is excellent but goes unnoticed by the fans and players!

Mentioned it in another thread, but I thought he made some good runs in the box and attacked the near post really well last night.  He looked a bit sharper overall and it was good to see him score.

This is the crux of it and is also the reason why I've been despairing of this manager's approach to games. Perhaps we've finally turned a corner. It's moving the ball quickly and getting runners available that opens up defences.

Not me. His run for Snodgrass second goal took defenders away & opened it up for Grealish to set up Snodgrass.

How do you know this Walmley?  Not disputing it and I think it's a great thing if true, just wondered how you have heard it?
