McCarthy: Hat-Trick Hero Moore Can Be First-Team Player With Town
Monday, 14th Aug 2017 18:28
Blues boss Mick McCarthy was delighted to see Kieffer Moore score a hat-trick for Rotherham as he helped the Millers to a 5-0 victory over Southend in his full league debut at the New York Stadium on Saturday.
McCarthy says there’s the potential for improvement in the 25-year-old (pictured above right with Josh Emmanuel, also currently on loan at Rotherham), who he has previously said he could bring back from his season-long loan in January if he’s impressing with the League One side.
“I’m delighted he’s got his hat-trick, he’s playing well, that’s the reason I sent him out,” McCarthy said. “And just thank God we’ve got our strikers scoring because they'd be screaming blue murder!
“But for now that's his level, for me. He can get better. He’s got everything to be [better], he’s big and powerful and he runs in channels, he’s got to learn a lot of things, I think.
“And he’s getting that opportunity playing in League One. And they love him, they’re delighted with him, even more so after Saturday, of course.
“So, that’s the reason, it’s to help him to help us. Not to help Rotherham, but that’s the by-product. They’ve taken him but from our point of view, hopefully he’ll get better and we can see him as a first-team player.
“And if we don’t, if he keeps scoring goals we’ll be able to sell him for more than we bought him for.”

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
