I hate to say it, but I see some sense in this particular rumour.

The Sheffield Star are one of many to report that Sheffield United are taking a strong look at Aston Villa striker Scott Hogan.

Having paid Brentford a reported upfront fee of £9million and some debate on whether or not the additional clauses have been satisfied – which I believe have been short of an outstanding promotion bonus – it’s fair to say Scott Hogan hasn’t had the best of times at Villa Park.

Arriving at the club in the January 2017 window, he’s made 31 starting appearances, with an additional 23 from the bench and only returned ten goals in that time. For some that’s a great return as we seem to play like he’s got Dion Dublin’s strengths, for others he’s been a disappointment.

The 26-year-old is a poacher though and we don’t play to his strengths. Like Brentford and Rochdale before them when he was banging in goals for fun on a regular basis, I saw enough of United last season to think he’d be incredibly well suited to them.

They apparently want him on loan and with money burning a hole in their pocket following the sale of David Brooks to Bournemouth, my fear is how far will the club be instructed to bend over as we save some face, cash and they take full advantage of a serious lack of planning at B6.

  • No good keeping him, we don’t play to his strengths (or any of our other strikers for goodness knows how many years for that matter)

  • Get rid, has been a total flop and eventhought Bruce ain’t got a clue, he seems unable to adapt to anyway the team plays. West Ham thought about buying him but decided not. Villa’s inept player recruitment of buying a player for 9 million and more that will obviously struggle under a team managed by the idiot Bruce, just makes the whole situation a total fcuking mess
