'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Is it time for a Brogan first team outing?

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore has made no secret of the fact that he wants a midfielder who can come in and hold the ball up as well as being able to help the defenders by taking the ball up to and past the half-way line - as he said himself, 'a Josh Walker' type of player.

But, haven't we already got that sort of a player? Or if not exactly that, couldn't we mould him into the player that Moore thinks he needs?

I'm talking about 'forgotten man' Stephen Brogan.

Paddy, as he is affectionately known to Millers fans, was having the season of his life, and there were those amongst us who thought we'd be lucky to hang on to him, when in February 2008 he suffered an horrific leg break at stadium:mk against MK Dons.

It took him fourteen months of often lonely, sometimes heavy training sessions to get himself fit enough to play again, coming on from the subs bench for the final game of the 2008/9 season at Don Valley.

Since then Paddy has only made a handful of starts plus a few appearances as a substitute and has had to make do with kicking his heels in the Reserves.

Now, I know that he is usually a left-back but on Tuesday night's in the reserve win over Derby the twenty-two year old played in central-midfield and, to top a good performance, scored a couple of cracking goals.

So, is it time for Stephen Brogan to be brought in from the cold? Could he be turned into the midfielder that Moore wants?

What do you think?

I would love to see him back, a right terrier he is. Oh, and that break, the goalie for MKDons was beside himself, with what happened.
