Aston Villa fans react to Scott Hogan's performance

Scott Hogan of Aston Villa in action during training session at the club's training ground at Bodymoor Heath on September 21, 2018 in Birmingham, England.

The Aston Villa hitman wasn't on the scoresheet today, despite having chances.

Scott Hogan of Aston Villa looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Aston Villa and Middlesbrough at Villa Park on September 12, 2017 in Birmingham, England.

Some Aston Villa fans are criticising Scott Hogan on Twitter.

Dean Smith's side romped to a comfortable 4-1 win at Charlton Athletic this afternoon, but it could and should have been by a greater margin.

Hogan, a £12 million signing by Aston Villa in 2017 [BBC Sport], came on in the 65th minute and missed a couple of decent goalscoring chances.

The Republic of Ireland international was on the scoresheet in last week's 1-0 win at Shrewsbury Town.

 

And here's how some Villa fans reacted to his performance this afternoon:

Hogan spent the second half of last season on loan at Sheffield United and it seems unlikely that he'll be staying with Aston Villa's first team in the Premier League.

That being said, it might depend on whether Smith can get another striker in. The Villans have signed 10 players this summer, but only one striker - Wesley, who wasn't available today - and at the moment, they might not be able to lose Hogan.

Smith's side kick off their Premier League campaign with a trip to Tottenham in two weeks time.
