So, we finally went and did it.
After weeks of crying out for the club to bring in another centre-forward to help out Lukas Jutkiewicz, the club finally pulled off a move, and judging by the reaction underneath the announcement last night, it seems to have gone down quite well with Blues fans.
That’s right, Scott Hogan has returned.
Now maybe I was just being hasty when I first discussed the idea of bringing him back, or if this was a case of being incredibly desperate given the way our forward line was shaping up, but honestly I’m getting quite excited about the prospect of him coming back to the club now.
And on a four-year deal? That’s really showing some faith in not only him, but the head coach as well, because that makes me think he’s going to be around for just as long to get the best out of him.
Are you happy to see Scott Hogan back?
Now though, it’s just going to be a case of which Scott Hogan we get. Will we be getting the one that was in such great form before the season went on hiatus? Or will we be getting the one that fired nothing but blanks once we were back underway? At the end of the day, even if we were to get someone roughly in the middle of the two, then I think that’s all we can really ask for.
Roughly a goal a game is probably too much to ask for, but a goal every other game or indeed one in three or even four would give us something in the range of 10-20 goals, and given how badly the rest if the team contributed last season behind Jutkiewicz, then we could be onto something as we hopefully take a step up the table.
What about you? What do you make of this news about Hogan?
