I thought we looked really good in first 45 yesterday. But I also thought hull looked very poor.

Second half, hull looked better, and we looked lost.

Until the window closes things don't settle down, but I do think that was a game we should be looking to win, and we threw 2 points away. Rather than got 1 from a promotion contender.

I love hogan. But was really disappointed in him yesterday.
Thought bacuna was the same as always. Average.
I think whelan had a very poor second half.
We look great defensively, but struggled to attack, and being brutal, we looked desperate towards the end!
I actually quite like samba up top, and think I read some where he started life as a striker. so maybe something in him there. but pointless him winning everything, if players around him can't read the game.

Gabby. scored his goal. What he is there for. But apart from that? He is lazy. He makes a Joachim, or vassel look intelligent!

The lad from spurs was quality. And how green isn't first name on the sheet is anyone's guess.

We had Thor on the bench. quality, goals and creative. how does Lansbury play?

I'm a Bruce fan, as we know. but that wasn't good enough. By September they need to be fit, and they need to be ready. For me, they where neither yesterday.

Agree Flackie but greens miss was bad tho mate i love him but them you gota score but yes should be starting. Bacuna and lansbury wrong choice for me. He brought hourihane but don't play him I don't understand why. Bruce needs to know his best team playing bacuna is a joke mate.

Agree hogan was useless, but because he scored goals at Brentford all you hear is "hogan is so hard done by he doesn't get the service" blah blah blah, he missed two one on ones yesterday, couldn't hold the ball up and his first touch was abismal. The young lad Onomah looks so aware and had vision of everything around him, but did look like a player thrown in after 1 days training, given more time the little balls he was trying to slide through will be coming off. Bacuna offers energy but not much else however fans booing him off is the reason we are always going to struggle, how are the players meant to perform when the fans behave like that, so embarrassing. Should of been 3/ 4 up after the first half and we'd be sitting here praising Bruce's tactics, blame falls at his door for not changing things earlier in the second when hull came back into it, but we lost because of the lads who consistently couldn't finish golden chances.

I agree with you, except on hogan.
I do think he is quality, and will prove it. It's a typical striker point. until he scores, his confidence is non existent!

I've never understood booing! Especially dying a match. At the end, there is an argument. but even then I'm not convinced.

We missed so many chances yesterday, it was laughable.

Don't get me wrong I think his a good striker, an when he gets going we will have another kodjia on our hands, consistent goals. But yesterday he was awful, however all the twitter fans etc make their mind up how people played before the games even started, and all you read is "if we give hogan the right service", He had the service yesterday and he messed it up, however on another day he could of easily scored all of them with his ability.

we are crying out for a target man to get the best out of hogan. he can't hold the ball up and looked a shell of the Brentford striker yesterday. should of been 5 goal winners though in that game and I did take positive from the game. I thought gabby did ok tbh tacked back and worked hard while on the left. started to look tired in second half but so did most of squad.

Brentford didn't have a target man and he scored? Yesterday we had enough chances to win more than comfortable.

Brentfords whole team was built around him. he won't get that at villa. we need to play a system that helps him though hence target man alongside him.
