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.”

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
