Interview with him here.

Honest and some good stuff, although you can really sense his frustration that we haven't played to his strengths.

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!
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?

Bruce stated it before the Brentford game. Agnew has a great reputation with players apparently. Just what we needed imo.

ok thanks.  That's great stuff.  Although I suspect his performance was probably more down to how the team played as a whole (in particular Grealish's influence) than individual coaching.  But if he can get his tail up it would be fantastic for us.

How many times did he say attack quickly, move it quickly and the chances will come. We have spent the season being long ball and quite ponderous. Hogan needs fast flowing attacking football. He thrived with Grealish, Adomah, Snodgrass and Hourihane all getting up with him.

What's really good is seeing a player in the squad making the same points that have been made on here.

It will save us millions (we donít have) on a new striker if we can utilize properly the striker we spent millions on.

Particularly liked the closing statement - "What we've got in that dressing room, we'll be alright"

Great interview. Really class attitude. He just wants to play and score, doesnt blame anyone but himself for problems. Cant ask for more really.

One of the differences yesterday was that Grealish in particular got past their midfield with the ball and was running at their defence.   I think that is where Hogan comes into his own really as he does make some good runs. Case in point was Snodgrass's second yesterday, where Hogan made a run in the other direction and could have been slipped in as well.

Interesting in the longer written interview in the express and star Hogan talks of having to learn the way the manager wants him to play. Suggests it's very much different his natural game. I think part of Bruce's job is to ensure thatwe also play to his strengths, and for the first time since he came we did that properly the other night. It's taken illness and injury to get to the personnel and team structure to let it happen but let's hope it is the way forward now.

Injured again for tomorrow. Turned his ankle against Bristol City. Hopefully not too serious.

I sincerely hope that the manager sees this as an opportunity: RHM should be given a starting slot.

I like Hogan and am desperate for him to come good, but heís got no chance of progressing if he keeps picking up poxy injuries.
If heís made of glass then heís no feckin good to anyone.

All the stuff above about free flowing football is spot on

But letís not forget that Bristol played into our hands. Most teams will continue to get 11 men behind the ball at villa park and to really get in our faces away. Weíve not proved capable of playing incisive passing football in this circumstances too often

WM reckon the injury was nothing to worry about and he should be back for Forest.
