Hogan NEVER gets his head on it. He jumps as high as he can but as he's only a little fella what chance does he have

Agreed but makes it even more strange that several of his goals for us have been really good headers. Maybe its easier to get height etc when attacking the ball swung in rather than a huge punt down the middle that allows the brick shithouses (Is it just me but most Championship sides have 2 huge CB's) to pile straight through a CF?

There's also very little point him trying to win headers when the ball's just been punted long - it's not like he can flick it on to anyone when he's up front on his own.

Seeing some suggestions that he may be injured. I hope these are untrue.

I guessed they weren't in today, given the press conference was held on Thursday.

Someone reported it on WM apparently. Fingers crossed it's not true.

I think he's another who deserves a mention for yesterday. He bloke didn't stop running in the time he was on the pitch.

There were still quite a few of these yesterday.  He won precisely none of them, so even though we don't do it that often, we really shouldn't bother at all when he's up front by himself.  Not his fault at all, I should add.

I said before the Fulham game - with grealish out of the side it won’t work with him as a lone striker

He won’t get the service

But just as importantly we end up hoofing balls to him that he can’t do anything with

Jack is our only midfielder who can accept the ball in tight positions to get us up the pitch without hitting a front man

I agree, Jack is the key to getting the best out of Hogan. Without him he looks a very mediocre striker again. That header in the second half that was closer to the corner flag was pretty poor.

Grab an is a much more complete player. If we sick with one up front it should be him.

It has to be Davis or Grabban up top on Saturday

Can’t see two up top working as we never look right playing 442

He mistimed the header, had he connected properly as he has been in recent weeks this debate would probably not be happening. With Albert unavailable we should consider putting Graban on the left which would allow us to play with a similar shape to our recent winning run.

No disrespect to Scott but without balls fed through to him he "with the best will in the world" is a passenger, and how long did it take Johnstone to work out the big boot up field was counter productive, as said above if your not playing to Scotts strengths may as well not play him. Mr Bruce!

I'd play him with Davis.
