is it the grealish factor ere playing more balls to feet than slinging it in that's brought the change of fortunes, I don't know , but I like it.

Chuffed for him, we have finally started playing to his strengths and we are benefitting hugely.

Iím delighted heís starting to look like the player he was at Brentford, but we havenít really changed that much. All of his recent goals have come from crosses including one corner, with three of them being headers. Weíve had crosses from Elmo, Albert and Snodgrass all season towards Davis, havenít we?

If he's scoring goals he's doing his job and long may it continue. We still need another striker this window though.

Iím sure grealish and snoddyís form helps

But I agree - I think itís confidence, fitness, Agnew and a bit of luck in the main part

The balls into him the past few weeks have been brilliant, hes been able to run onto them and just get a touch to steer it in, as he did reguarly for Brentford, previously we were playing floated long balls/crosses to him and getting no benefit at all.

I think there's a lot to be said for allowing players to get to know each other's game and build up a bit of a rapport.

We now have three guys who can whip in great crosses from wide positions. Throw in Jack and Hourihane who can do that too along with play clever balls from more central positions it poses opponents lots of problems when dealing with a forward who is very confident and makes intelligent runs.

Said in the post match thread, but what I've picked up on in the last few games is how well he attacks the near post off crosses.  I wonder if Agnew spotted that and instructed the wide players to whip in early crosses.

I once posted that when Joe Cole made a clever run to the near post and scored, it was the first time in many years that I had seen us do it.

He's probably having his longest fun of games which will have helped him too. Really pleased for him,many more to come hopefully.

Thought the difference in the two halves was that in the first Elmo and Albert were delivering quick crosses to him where in the second Albert especially held on to the ball trying to get past the full back. Hogan became isolated for much of the second half.

I think his movement is his best attribute. He just gets in front of the defenders, itís a tremendous skill.

He reached rock bottom at Middlesbrough I thought. Had a poor game and stopped even showing for the ball. RHM came on, changed the game and it looked a bit ominous for Hogan.

Since then he seemed to shake himself out of it and looked a different player. Maybe some fresh ideas for Agnew helped him.
