I imagine buying Hogan was the equivalent of buying a kebab, after a night on the piss.

Oh.
Then discovering it uneaten the next morning thinking why the fuck did I buy that

I'd still reheat it.

The kebab, not Hogan.

If Hogan was a kebab, it would definitely be a Big John's Special.

Hogan at 12m was about the going rate for a striker that had scored 20 in 35. He just didn't fit cabbage ball, lost confidence, sharpness and appetite. Would not be suprised to see him thrive again somewhere with the right setup.

Surely Sheffield United had the right set up? Didnt thrive there.

I was too, I thought he'd be late 30's by now!  Seems to have been around forever!  He's only played four times for Spurs this season apparently.  I'm pleased to see that Smith is wanting a 'tougher' midfielder in.

My mate a, spurs fan, used to rave about him in the early poch days.  He has since revised his position saying that he never recovered from an injury and his legs have gone which is surprising considering his age.

Interesting. Hes the right kind of player anyway for sure, prem experience, proper cdm spoiler. One of those and another striker and weve had a good window.

That's fair enough although I'd like to see Trezeguet with a decent midfield before judging him fully. I thought he did okay on Tuesday but others didn't.
I like him and I'm sure he's be much better, or far more consistent next season.
to me, hes just seemed inconsistent- much like the rest of the team really. Some days hes great. Other days anonymous. I do like him though and think he will improve and hopefully be more consistent.

Agree with this. Think he's yet to properly settle and like some others has good days and bad days as a result. Hoping he finds a rhythm soon as he clearly has talent.

Like a few others, probably would have been better being used as an impact sub up to this point.  That would have allowed him to find his feet a bit more.

Surprised we have not had another look at Joe Lolley, could play alongside Jack and McGinn.
