Title: Bernard Brogan - Serious Injury?
Post by: GetOverTheBar on February 12, 2018, 11:03:57 AM
Reports coming through that Bernard has been seriously injured with the dreaded cruciate.

Sincerely hope this injury is A) not true B) this is not the end at intercounty level for a genuine true great of modern times, probably even all time.

Can anyone confirm?

I thought he did both knees before. Both before he was 21 afaik.

You'd have to imagine that's it for Bernard if it is the cruciate.
Tough way to end, but he's had some career all the same.
One of the most consistent score-takers I've ever seen.
Always played the game in the right spirit and let his football do the talking.

Did Paul Brogan not do both as well?

Thought it was the hamstrings he had major trouble with before. Tough ending alright if it is the cruciate. Had the seasons of all seasons in 2010, no one could get a hand on him that year.

Talk he might avoid an operation and build it up.

Will be sad ending to a great career. You can see across the water a professional athlete of similar age (ibrahimovic) has struggled to recover from the dreaded cruciate.

It’s worth repeating that there’s multiple cruciate ligaments, and the reports only mention ‘damage’. Depending on the grade of the tear he could be back sooner rather than later so I’d hold off on comment or obituaries until we know more.

Ha! The irony is delicious.

Thanks doc for cleaning things up.

There’s a tiny bit less of a problem with social issues surrounding a ligament in someone’s knee than there is in a rape trial, Dinny. And for one we know much more about that than this right now. Expected better from you to be honest.

Came to our club a few years ago. Refused point blank to take any money, despite staying for a long time and being a real inspiration to the children. He’s a total legend. Never cynical, no ego, just a really decent, civil fella who is such an incredible role model to any aspiring forwards. I’m confident he will return.

Sure you probably got him on the radio, Ray!!




Seriously, I hope it’s not the end of his inter-County days.

A truly great player and a gentleman to boot. I hope he makes a full recovery and, if he doesn't, he will be missed by genuine football fans everywhere.

I thought both had actually done them twice before too.

Love to hear stories like this - Unfortunately it seems as though the injury is true.

I wish him the very best in recovery and that he finishes the game at intercounty level on his terms.

Very unfortunate injury for one of the games' modern greats. Peak Bernard Brogan was a scoring machine and his movement and finishing was top class. Age was beginning to catch up with him but he was still one of the top couple of dozen forwards in the game. Have heard of him travelling to presentations outside Dublin and refusing to take anything, one of the good guys.

I wouldn't write him off. I hope he can make it back. Personally thought his best days were behind him a year or two back but he was excellent last year and looking lively again this year. Nice to hear the stories about how decent he is, they tally with what I've heard also.

I think if there is even a sliver of a chance of Bernard ending his career like Alan did, with a cameo and point off the bench in an All Ireland Final, he will keep at it.
