Former Sheffield United loanee, Scott Hogan, has admitted that he tries to put his spell with the club to the back of his mind.
Hogan played a key role in helping the Blades to promotion, scoring the opening goal as United sealed the deal against Ipswich. He scored just once more, in a home loss against Bristol City.
However, he was seen as integral to the squad at the time. Hogan’s inclusion allowed the likes of Billy Sharp and David McGoldrick to be rotated.
But Hogan, who is currently excelling with Birmingham City, admits he tries to put his spells with United, Aston Villa, and Stoke firmly in the memory bank.
“To be honest I try and forget the Aston Villa, Sheffield United, Stoke time because it didn’t go well at all,” Hogan said. (Sheffield Star)
“I’m partly to blame, and I’ve got to live with that, and I’ve got to put it right.”
Strange to include United in his list…but it’s Hogan’s choice
It seems a bit odd that Scott Hogan would put Sheffield United in his list of failed spells. Yes, he didn’t get loads of minutes or goals. But he did play a key role and scored, arguably, the most important goal of the season.
Most Blades fans will remember Hogan fondly enough. He was part of a promotion-winning team and played his part well.
I’m sure Hogan was more touching on his spells with Stoke and Villa, rather than taking aim at his time at Bramall Lane.
