Hogan points out what we all could see, he can't play as the loan striker. He needs to play as part of a front two and I could see him working well with Abraham. The problem is I can't work out how you get a system with two up front and Jack in the team. Over to the new manager.

Why Bruce bought Hogan is a complete mystery,  he was never going to perform if asked to work in a completely different structure. Almost as strange as not replacing centre-half 's you sell.

If it is to be two up top, regardless of whether one is Hogan or not, then I think Jack will have to nominally continue as one of the wide players, albeit with licence to roam a bit.

ie a one winger / one roamer formation, which should be OK going forward but might get a bit complicated defensively

No, that's Tammy Abraham's role.

Also if we have more possession of the ball, win it back higher up the pitch, we may be able to fit in two strikers with Jack.

Just the usual gripes from an out of favour player. A not very good one at that.

So his 20+ goals for Brentford were some kind of fluke or something?

Did you see the games that Hogan played - or was you like the rest of us watching the ball flying either at him or over his head from 40 yards away.

That moron Bruce would have "coached" Messi and Ronaldo into submission

I think thatís fair enough from Hogan and most pertinent is to remember Bruce bought him and claimed heíd watched him for years. If you want anymore evidence around Bruceís incompetence itís purchasing Hogan and then playing a game completely unsuited to him.

We already have two loan strikers, I believe.

I know we didn't play to Hogan's strengths and his confidence was probably low as a result but I've never been that impressed by him.  The one I hope will really thrive is Grealish.

Bruce has ruined so many players! The list grows. Thank God he's out of the club, totally useless! He's even made Jack look mediocre! Hogan should have a new lease of life with Smith at the helm.

Didn't Smith play 4-2-3-1 at Brentford, with Hogan as the 1? If so, the problem here wasn't him playing up on his own, but that there was nobody behind feeding him with appropriate passes. He's no target man.

Yep says it all. Not content with wasting money we didnít have on a player he had no idea how to accommodate, he didnít give him the dignity of knowing what to work on, or leaving when there were clubs in for him.

I don't blame Hogan at all. More like a useless Manager not knowing how to play him. Hogan scored 21 in 27 games for Brentford playing for a Manager knowing his strengths.
