Aston Villa fans react to Hogan’s goal tally prediction

The majority of Aston Villa’s fans agree with Scott Hogan’s claim that he will score plenty more goals this season.

However, the supporters feel that he will only break the 20-goal barrier if he receives the right service.

It took time for the 25-year-old to settle in after moving to Villa Park from Brentford in January.

He managed just one goal and created two assists in 13 Championship appearances, of which nine were starts.

Hogan’s target of scoring 20 or more in the 2017-18 campaign may seem slightly ambitious, but he did arrive at the club after hitting 14 for Brentford in the first half of last season.

Plenty of Villa fans believe that the forward’s success in front of goal will largely depend on his teammates and whether they can do more than play the ball long.

Steve Bruce’s side, who now have former Chelsea captain John Terry among their ranks, will be fighting for promotion to the Premier League after falling short last season.

They ended up finishing 13th in the table, 18 points shy of the playoff places.
