Give him the new contract we were all wishing for prior to the injury.
I was thinking the same! I’m no expert but that kind of injury doesn’t sound as bad as I expected. Now may be a good time to take a gamble to sign him up. I was worried he was going to be off in January. I think it would show how much he is rated at Argyle, but would we take the gamble on his fitness?

Ryan Lowe said last night that Brendan had dislocated his kneecap and that it was 'put back in place' by the first aiders before he left the pitch. The big question is whether there is any accompanying ligament damage. Argyle will manage his recovery which may well take him beyond the transfer window in January and the expiry of his contract. Hopefully, he will be offered the contract he deserves.

I would hope that we would extend his contract to the end of the season and make a further decision then.
Agreed. Think this would be the best move for all.

Do we have another defender who is capable of playing left centre back, apart from Gillesphrey?

For all we know Brendan could have been offered a new contract but it is not in the public domain
We are not the type of club that would leave him high & dry - as RL has publicly said he will be looked after- it is just such a shame for him after all his well documented injury issues
No doubt he will come back stronger

Having dislocated my knee and ruptured my ACL, I think the extent of the injury will depend on how much ligament damage was done when the knee dislocated. Although its nowhere near as bad as a new ACL injury, it is far from ideal when he already has a problematic knee. I cant seem him back for a while.

Interestingly, Liverpool Echo has just published an recent interview they have had with Galloway which they have updated regarding last nights injury. He talks about his time at Everton, injuries, manager changes and how happy he is at Argyle...

Dislocated Dislocated kneecap a few years back. Still hurts to this day, whilst never really got it checked out I wouldn't be surprised if I did some ligament damage.

Fingers crossed Brendan's back quickly, we looked a bit lost after he went off

I think Galloway was permanently injured for Luton due to a problem with his kneecap. This is obviously a weakness for him. While I like Galloway as a player, Argyle need to be cautious about handing him a long contract without first getting an independent medical opinion. Football is a very harsh and ruthless profession and the club can’t afford to pay for injured players- even though that’s an unpleasant thing to say.

It’s worth noting that Lowe has already confirmed that this is the other knee from which he had the serious injury.

Although, I do understand your point. It’s not ideal to have a weakness there in both. Really feel for the lad as he’s a real talent and just had call ups to his national side.

Can't see him playing in the African Cup of Nations now so this will be a double blow for him.
I checked Dr Google on football and dislocated kneecaps. The consensus - and I only gave attention to what look like credible medical sources - is that, even if there is no surrounding damage, it would be several months before he can play professional sport competitively again. The likelihood is that his season is over, which is really sad. Maybe he will defy the odds - I certainly hope so.

6 -8 weeks minimum I think. And that’s with no ligament damage
