The Loan Watch Thread 2014-2015

Recommended Posts

i still think he will be sold. McNair will be a great United defender and Blackett will be a sub until he ups his game or will be sold before that

 

Depends on how he does on this loan (hopefully we agree to extend it).You won't sold a young defender who proved himself in the PL.

Manchester United’s loan stars were in action for their respective clubs this weekend. Nan was the player to talk about this weekend with him being the only player to find the back of the net. His loan spell in Portugal with his former club has brought out the best in him, but I do not think for one minute that it will last if he returns to Old Trafford next season. Sporting will not be able to afford the player, or his wages, and with him still having a further three years on his contract at United after this season, he does not need to leave either. Perhaps his performances will have got him noticed by other clubs in the market for a winger and able to afford him. Reece James was not in action for Rotherham United after his initial loan spell came to an end. The defender could have been in action for Manchester United’s U21 side on Monday evening, but the match was postponed.

 

Here is how I feel the loan players fared this weekend:

 

Tom Cleverley – Aston Villa

Tom Cleverley played 59 minutes in the 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League. Cleverley did not have the best of games since being on loan at an Aston Villa struggling in front of goal. He had a couple of chances to score but smashed one wide of the post. Cleverley had a 76% pass success rate during the 59 minutes of the match he played in, he also crossed the ball into the box once, failing to meet his man. He really had nothing else to offer during the match, which is something that will not get him noticed by teams that could be in the market for the free agent in the summer. Will Cleverley ever be that player we all thought he could be?

Next Match: AFC Bournemouth – FA Cup – Sunday 25th January 2015; KO 15:00

 

Wilfried Zaha – Crystal Palace

Wilfried Zaha played 70 minutes in the 3-2 win over Burnley in the Barclays Premier League. Zaha played very well after they were 2-0 down. He played a massive part in one of the goals with some brilliant skills to beat his opponent for his cross to be put into the back of the net by Dwight Gale. Alan Pardew has stated that he intends to get the England U21 international back in form, and if he does, it will give him a better chance at United next season, especially with the fact that wingers are something United are short on right now.

Next Match: Southampton – FA Cup – Saturday 24th January 2015; KO 15:00

 

Ben Pearson – Barnsley

Ben Pearson wasn’t involved in the 1-0 defeat to Doncaster Rovers in the Sky Bet League One.

Next Match: MK Dons – Sky Bet League One – Saturday 24th January 2015; KO 15:00

 

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End

Sam Johnstone played full 90 minutes in the 2-2 draw with Leyton Orient in the Sky Bet League One. Johnstone didn’t have the best of starts on his debut after letting in a long-range shot from Dave Mooney. He made some decent saves but overall apart from the goals he let in he had decent game. Being on loan with Preston North End, rather than Doncaster Rovers will be good for Johnstone. He needs to improve and would not have done that being at the top of his game playing for the South Yorkshire side. The England U21 international needs to be challenged, which is how he will improve.

Next Match: Sheffield United – FA Cup – Saturday 24th January 2015; KO 15:00

 

Javier Hernandez – Real Madrid

Javier Hernandez was an unused substitute in the 2-0 victory over Getafe in La Liga. Hernandez is really not getting much game time in the Spanish capital this season, which ironically was one of the reasons he left the Old Trafford club on loan. Rumours suggest that Louis van Gaal is intent on selling the Mexican striker in the summer, even if Radamel Falcao does not earn a permanent deal at the Theatre of Dreams.

Next Match: Cordoba – La Liga – Saturday 24th January 2015; KO 15:00

 

Guillermo Varela – Real Madrid II

Guillermo Varela was not involved in the 1-0 victory over Getafe II in the Spanish Segunda B this weekend.

Next Match: Fuenlabrada â€“ Segunda B – Sunday 25th January 2015; KO 15:00

 

Nani – Sporting Lisbon

Nani played the full match in the 4-2 win over Rio Ave in the Primeira Liga. Nani played well in the victory and bagged a goal from the penalty spot in the 30th minute. He showed real potential during the match and was really impressive. During his loan spell in Portugal, Nani has scored seven goals, assisted a further six goals and been named the Man of the Match on four occasions, all in 19 appearances, including UEFA Champions League matches.

Next Match: Boavista – Primeira Liga – Wednesday 14th January 2015; KO 15:00

 

Angelo Henriquez – Dinamo Zagreb

Angelo Henriquez was not in action this weekend due to his league currently having their winter break.

Next Match: Odd – Friendly – Tuesday 27th January 2015; KO 17:00

 

Vanja Milinković-Savić – FK Vojvodina

Vanja Milinković-Savić was not in action this weekend due to his league currently having their winter break.

Next Match: OFK Beograd – Super Liga – Saturday 21st February 2015, KO 12:30

A number of players now really need loans. 7/8 players out onloan at the moment is not enough. Would like to see Powell given another shot at a Championship club. Lingard, Vermijl, Thorpe, Amos (if not sold permanently), Keane and Rothwell could all be sent out (injury permitting). Although with the FA Youth Cup run, maybe management would like to have 14/15 players who are overage for youth football available for the under 21's and are reluctant to loan too many players out.

I don't see any problem with the FA Youth Cup.We're going to have Kehinde and Doughty as additions plus Thompson Croskery Mitchell back from injury (maybe McTominay as well) and all the players in the current U18s XI deserves to start so it's fair for me to promote let's say Mitchell and Riley to the U21s to keep the rest enough playing times.Gribbin certainly deserve to keep a place in the team and he will be the first one to be dropped with the number of midfielders we have if we're not going to promote anyone.

 

Keane is going on loan soon and I can see Powell/Thorpe/Rothwell/Vermijl following if they're not injured.Hope we'll see Fletcher play in the second half of this season I really like him last season.

Loan Watch: Wilfried Zaha inspires Crystal Palace comeback in the FA Cup

Manchester United’s loan stars were in action for their respective clubs this weekend. This weekend, English football was dominated with the FA Cup, meaning that many of the clubs were not in action, unless fixtures previously arranged involving clubs also not participating in the tournament.

 

Many of United’s loan players were not in action, some due to their clubs already being knocked out of the competition, one player was ineligible to feature for his new loan club and two other players clubs are still on their winter break. Wilfried Zaha seemed to be the player that caught the eye this weekend.

 

Here is how I feel the loan players fared this weekend:

 

Tom Cleverley – Aston Villa

Tom Cleverley played 90 minutes in the 2-1 win over Bournemouth in the FA Cup. Cleverley had an average game in midfield today and wasn’t really put under a lot of pressure from Bournemouth’s players. He passed the ball well and just didn’t stop running in midfield, but overall he didn’t do much against an average looking Bournemouth side which are normally a lot better than they were today.

Next Match: Arsenal  â€“ Barclays Premier League – Sunday 1st February 2015; KO 13:30

 

Wilfried Zaha – Crystal Palace

Wilfried Zaha played full 90 minutes in the 3-2 win over Southampton in the FA Cup. Zaha started the game quietly, but as soon as Southampton scored he started playing and causing loads of problems for the Saints back four. He played a big part in all the goals for Palace. Perhaps Alan Pardew could bring the best out of the player, which United may not see any benefit from as he’s also urged the player to quit the Old Trafford club.

Next Match: Everton  â€“ Barclays Premier League – Saturday 31st January 2015; KO 15:00

 

Will Keane – Sheffield Wednesday

Will Keane did not play this weekend with Sheffield Wednesday not back in action until next weekend as they had previously been knocked out of the FA Cup.

Next Match: Reading – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 31st January 2015;KO 15:00

 

Ben Pearson – Barnsley

Ben Pearson played 90 minutes in the 2-0 defeat to inform MK Dons in the Sky Bet League One. Pearson showed his class in the deep role of midfield until the class of MK Dons finally paid off and grabbed a goal then quickly made it 2-0. But overall Pearson was impressive and picked up a yellow card late on.

Next Match: Port Vale – Sky Bet League One – Saturday 31st January 2015; KO 15:00

 

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End

Sam Johnstone was not involved in the FA Cup match against Sheffield United due to him being cup tied after participating in the competition on a previous loan deal with Doncaster Rovers.

Next Match: Walsall â€“ Johnstone’s Paint Trophy â€“ Tuesday 27th January 2015; KO 19:45

 

Javier Hernandez – Real Madrid

Javier Hernandez was an unused substitute in the 2-1 victory over Cordoba in the La Liga, a match which saw Cristiano Ronaldo sent off for striking a player and former United winger Bebe showing his skills.

Next Match: Real Sociedad  – La Liga – Saturday 31st January 2015; KO 15:00

 

Guillermo Varela – Real Madrid II

Guillermo Varela was not involved in the 3-0 victory over Fuenlabrada this weekend. The victory sees Real Madrid’s second string take the top spot in the league, one point clear over second placed Real Unión

Next Match: Trival Valderas â€“ Segunda B – Saturday 31st January 2015; KO TBA

 

Nani – Sporting Lisbon

Nani played 90 minutes in the 1-0 win over Academica in the Primeira Liga. The Portuguese winger played quite well showing his class and also showing why he was loaned by Manchester United. He had a couple of opportunities to find his team-mate but he chose to shoot, which is typical of the winger.

Next Match: Victoria Setubal – Primeira Liga – Wednesday 28th January 2015; KO 16:00

 

Angelo Henriquez – Dinamo Zagreb

Angelo Henriquez was not in action this weekend due to his league currently having their winter break.

Next Match: Odd – Friendly – Tuesday 27th January 2015; KO 17:00

 

Vanja Milinković-Savić – FK Vojvodina

Vanja Milinković-Savić was not in action this weekend due to his league currently having their winter break.

Next Match: OFK Beograd – Super Liga – Saturday 21st February 2015, KO 12:30

Any of our current loanees have any future at Old Trafford?

I don't think Villa are likely to sign Cleverly permanently but he's off this summer being out of contract. Thought he played quite well for them in the cup on Sunday.

Hermandez? Again, can't see him staying with Real Madrid. Could well come back to us with RVP getting another year older and Falcao not looking the part at all. 18 months left on his contract - it's not impossible that he could make it.

Nani is unlikely to be part of LVG's plans and should be gone this summer. He is only half way through a big contract so negotiations will have to take place.

Of the younger ones, Janko, Johnstone, Rothwell and Pearson will surely come back with time still on their side.

Amos should be off I'd imagine, he'll be 25 shortly and needs to start playing regularly.

That leaves Henriquez, Varela, Lingard and Keane. I'd love to see one or two of them making it with us. But it really looks like Keane's time has come and gone. Henriquez is reported to be an agreed deal. Pity. I liked the little I saw of him.

Varela is one I always liked. Again, he's under a five year contract with us. Would like to see him back with us and getting a chance on the summer tour.

And finally Lingard. Started LVG's first league game but what bad luck to get injured just when a breakthrough looked possible. I think LVG rates him and his recent new contract bodes well.

Loan Watch: Saidy Janko continues his progress in the Championship

Manchester United’s loan stars were in action for their respective clubs this week. There were no goals scored by the loan players in the midweek matches, but there were some decent performances with Will Keane, Jesse Lingard, Saidy Janko and Ben Pearson looking good. Not to mention the goalkeepers Sam Johnstone and Ben Amos, both of who could not keep a clean sheet, but did well at times in their matches.

 

Here is how I feel the loan players fared this week:

 

Tom Cleverley – Aston Villa

Tom Cleverley played 77 minutes in the 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion in the Barclays Premier League on Tuesday evening. It was Villa’s first victory in the league under new manager Tim Sherwood and a local derby victory to boot. The Villains face West Brom against this weekend in the FA Cup, so a double-header of victories will be on the cards for them now. Cleverley had regressed this season after a good start for Villa but has found himself back in the starting eleven under Sherwood. He had one shot on goal in the 19th minute of the match, which was off target, also having a 79% pass success rate, which is not great, but also not bad. Cleverley played on the right of a midfield diamond, but he did not really offer much. He is out of contract with Manchester United in the summer and I doubt he will be able to rejuvenate his career with the Red Devils. Villa or Everton are the reported clubs in for him this summer, but with him being a free agent, many more may look to recruit the midfield, especially clubs being promoted to the Barclays Premier League.

Next Match: West Bromwich Albion  – FA Cup â€“ Saturday 7th March 2015; KO 17:30

 

Joe Rothwell – Blackpool

Joe Rothwell was not involved in the 0-0 defeat/victory over/by Birmingham City in the Sky Bet Championship on Wednesday evening. Presumably because he played for Manchester United’s U21 side against Bolton Wanderers in the Manchester Senior Cup on Monday evening.

Next Match: Sheffield Wednesday â€“ Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 7th March 2015; KO 15:00

 

Ben Amos – Bolton Wanderers

Ben Amos played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Reading in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday evening. The Manchester United goalkeeper had his loan deal extended for another month earlier in the week and he was unlucky not to keep a clean sheet with Reading scoring in the last-minute of the match. Amos did make one save in the 22nd minute of the match, and was not really called upon for large spells. I don’t think Amos has a future at United after this season, especially with Vanja Milinković-Savić returning to the club in the summer.

Next Match: Blackburn Rovers â€“ Sky Bet Championship â€“ Wednesday 11th March 2015; KO 19:45

 

Saidy Janko – Bolton Wanderers

Saidy Janko played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Reading in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday evening. Starting in a right=wing position, Janko has three shots on goal during the match; two were saved (56′ and 59′) and the third in the 75th minute was off target. The fact that Janko has adapted from U21 level football to playing in the second tier of English football suggests that he could be a wild card for a first team position at United next season, or perhaps a season on loan with a Barclays Premier League club could give him that change to gain confidence in the top flight of English football. His debut was great scoring and assisting, but he’s not yet reached that level again, but I am sure he will. Bolton are ten points clear of the relegation zone this season with eleven matched remaining, so another couple of wins should see them to safety, but that is all they can achieve currently twenty points off a play-off place.

Next Match: Blackburn Rovers â€“ Sky Bet Championship â€“ Wednesday 11th March 2015; KO 19:45

 

Jesse Lingard â€“ Derby County

Jesse Lingard played 18 minutes in the 2-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday evening. The Manchester United midfielder has a shot on goal within three minutes of replacing Jamie Ward in what was a disastrous defeat for Derby. Middlesbrough are now the league leaders and with fours points between second and sixth, Derby’s advantage seems to be somewhat cut leaving them with more to do in order to achieve automatic promotion this season. Lingard is doing well on loan, but this weekend’s fixture with Birmingham City is now a must win match.

Next Match: Birmingham City – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 7th March 2015; KO 15:00

 

Will Keane – Sheffield Wednesday

Will Keane played 90 minutes in the 2-1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship on Wednesday evening. The Manchester United striker had three shots on goal through the match; one was saved, one was blocked and the other was off target. Keane scored a goal at the weekend and I had hoped that it would start something for the striker, who should be full of confidence after scoring twice this season, once from the penalty spot. Keane maintained 84% pass success and created three chances for his team-mates at three stages in the match. Sheffield Wednesday are not likely to force themselves into the play-off places, but they will be safe in the Championship this season.

Next Match: Blackpool – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 7th March 2015; KO 15:00

 

Ben Pearson – Barnsley

Ben Pearson played 90 minutes in the 1-0 victory over Coventry City in the Sky Bet League One on Tuesday evening. The Manchester United midfielder played well in the victory for his side and even had a chance on goal with a left footed shot from outside the box, which was saved by Coventry goalkeeper Lee Burge. Pearson’s current deal ends on the 8th March, which gives him one more match, but I expect his loan deal to be extended, unless he wants to go back to playing U21 football at Manchester United.

Next Match: Walsall â€“ Sky Bet League One – Saturday 7th March 2015; KO 15:00

 

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End

Sam Johnstone played 90 minutes in the 2-2 draw against Doncaster Rovers in the Sky Bet League One on Tuesday evening. Johnstone faced his former loan club for the first time, having kept a clean sheet for the last five matches that he had played in (missed the FA Cup fifth round with Manchester United). Johnstone did well in the match despite conceding twice and his side were 2-1 down until a last-minute goal scored by Jermaine Beckford settled the draw. Preston remain in second place in League One with Doncaster Rovers currently sixth. Automatic promotion is still possible for Preston, but they will need to beat third placed MK Dons this weekend, who are a point behind them.

Next Match: Milton Keynes Dons â€“ Sky Bet League One â€“ Saturday 7th March 2015; KO 15:00

 

Angelo Henriquez – Dinamo Zagreb

Angelo Henriquez was not involved in the 3-0 (4-0 aggregate) victory over Istra 1961 in the HR Nogometni Cup on Tuesday evening.

Next Match: Zagreb â€“ 1.HNL â€“ Saturday 7th March 2015; KO 14:00

Loan Watch: Nani scores again for Sporting!
 
Manchester United’s loan stars were in action for their respective clubs this weekend. Nan was the only player to score, which was a spectacular goal and will start suggestions of Nani being needed at United, especially after the 2-1 defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup on Monday evening. Ben Pearson has seen his own loan spell extended until the end of the season, which will be good for him and his progress with United in the future.
Here is how I feel the loan players fared this weekend:
 
Tom Cleverley – Aston Villa
Tom Cleverley played 65 minutes in the 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup on Saturday evening. The victory was marred by pitch invasions both whilst the match was still in play and as soon as the full-time whistle was blown, which took the celebration off the victory. Cleverley played his part in the victory, which was the second time Villa had beaten their local rivals in a week. Recent rumours suggest that Cleverley s holding out for a permanent switch to Everton in the summer, when he will be a free agent, rather that stay at the midlands club.
Next Match: Sunderland  â€“ Barclays Premier League – Saturday 14th March 2015; KO 15:00
 
Joe Rothwell – Blackpool
Joe Rothwell was not involved in the 1-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday this weekend. He will be free to feature for Manchester United’s U21 side, who face Tottenham Hotspur in the Barclays U21 Premier League on Tuesday evening. The FA’s regulations state that if a player is not used by his loan club at the weekend, he is free to represent his parent clubs reserve side during the week. He feature in the 1-0 defeat to Bolton Wanderers in the Manchester Senior Cup last Monday under this ruling.
Next Match: AFC Bournemouth – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 14th March 2015; KO 15:00
 
Ben Amos – Bolton Wanderers
Ben Amos’s Bolton Wanderers were not in action this weekend.
Next Match: Blackburn Rovers – Sky Bet Championship – Wednesday 11th March 2015; KO 19:45
 
Saidy Janko – Bolton Wanderers
Saidy Janko’s Bolton Wanderers were not in action this weekend.
Next Match: Blackburn Rovers – Sky Bet Championship – Wednesday 11th March 2015; KO 19:45
 
Jesse Lingard – Derby County
Jesse Lingard played 16 minutes in the 2-2 draw with Birmingham City in the Sky Bet Championship. Lingard came on for Jamie Ward to add to their attack, but didn’t create much in the time he was on because Birmingham through everyone forward and managed to get a last-minute equaliser. Lingard is a talent, but seems to still be second fiddle at Derby, but with the amount of matches they still have to play this season, he could be given a starting role for some of them and I am sure when given the chance, he will prove himself to the manager. He has a lot in his locker.
Next Match: Norwich City – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 14th March 2015; KO 15:00
 
Will Keane – Sheffield Wednesday
Will Keane played 88 minutes in the 1-0 win over Blackpool in the Sky Bet Championship. Keane played quite well in the win despite not scoring a goal he looked lively in the match and caused Blackpool some problems. The Manchester United forward had one brilliant chance but hit the woodwork. With him scoring twice in his loan spell so far, confidence will be something that builds up and allows him to succeed. Whether his future is at Old Trafford after the summer is a different story though, especially with Angelo Henriquez wanting to return to Old Trafford, according to his family.
Next Match: Fulham – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 14th March 2015; KO 15:00
 
Ben Pearson – Barnsley
Ben Pearson played 57 minutes in the 3-0 win over Walsall in the Sky Bet League One. Pearson played well in his defensive role stopped and counter attack that came from Walsall and he also helped in the attacking side of the game, he played a very big part in the first goal which he made a brilliant tackle to win the ball back. His loan spell has been extended until the end of the season, which is good. Warren Joyce seems to be as impressed as the players Barnsley manager, which is a good sign of the players development whilst away from Manchester United.
Next Match: Oldham Athletic – Sky Bet League One – Saturday 14th March 2015; KO 15:00
 
Sam Johnstone – Preston North End
Sam Johnstone played 90 minutes in a 2-0 victory over Milton Keynes Dons in the Sky Bet League One this weekend. The Manchester United goalkeeper kept his sixth clean sheet for Preston this season and his tenth clean sheet of the season, after keeping four clean sheet on loan with Doncaster Rovers earlier in the season. Johnstone has a good future ahead of him, but quite what happens at United this summer remains to be seen. With David De Gea still not tied down to a new deal, chances are the Johnstone will not be allowed to leave the club, possibly being second choice behind Víctor Valdés.
Next Match: Crewe Alexandra – Sky Bet League One – Saturday 14th March 2015; KO 15:00
 
Javier Hernandez – Real Madrid
Javier Hernandez played ten minutes in the 1-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao in La Liga this weekend. It is clear that manager Carlo Ancelotti does not favour the Mexican over Karim Benzema, and there is no reason for him to. Chicharito left United in the summer on loan ironically to find first team football, which is not what he found at Real Madrid and he was never likely to. With Louis van Gaal stating that he did not have a 20 goal a season striker, it is clear that he does not feel the Mexican could offer this, but we are yet to see the players fate, you is wanted by a host of Barclays Premier League teams in the summer.
Next Match: Schalke 04 – UEFA Champions League – Tuesday 10th March 2015; KO 19:45
 
Guillermo Varela – Real Madrid II
Guillermo Varela played 90 minutes in the 2-0 defeat to Socuéllamos in the Spanish Segunda B this weekend. The Uruguayan right back was yellow carded on the hour for a challenge in a poor showing for the home side. Five yellow cards were shown for Real Madrid II, with Ãlvaro Jiménez being shown a straight red card. Real Madrid II fell down to fourth place in the league with Guadalajara currently the leaders having two points more. Real Madrid II need to ensure victory in their next few matches to ensure they rise back to the summit.
Next Match: Huesca – Segunda B – Saturday 14th February 2015; KO TBA
 
Nani – Sporting Lisbon
Nani played 85 minutes in the 3-2 win over Penafiel in the Primeira Liga. Nani played well in the win which saw three red cards and saw Nani score the winning goal in the 70th minute which was a cracking strike from outside the area which resulted in the winning goal in a must win game for Sporting Lisbon. During his loan spell with his former club, Nani has scored ten goals and assisted in seven others in 28 appearances so far, which is good. Could Nani be back? If he is will it last?
Next Match: Marítimo – Primeira Liga – Sunday 15th March 2015; KO 16:00
 
Angelo Henriquez – Dinamo Zagreb
Angelo Henriquez played 57 minutes in the 2-0 victory over Zagreb in the 1.HNL this weekend. The Chilean striker scored both goals for his side in the 28th and 43rd minutes, meaning he has now scored 14 goals in all competitions this season. In actual, the Chilean has scored 19 goals in total, including the friendly matches played during the winter break and pre-season. Although Dynamo Zagreb are keen to sign the player in a permanent deal in the summer, which was understood to be part of the loan deal, Henriquez himself wants to return to Manchester United, according to his family at least. I would like to see the Chilean given a chance at United in the first team, he surely deserves that after his goalscoring ability this season.
Next Match: Hajduk Split – 1.HNL – Saturday 14th Match 2015; KO 14:00
 
Vanja Milinković-Savić – FK Vojvodina
Vanja Milinković-Savić was back in action playing 90 minutes in the 3-0 defeat to Crvena Cvezda in the Super Liga this weekend. It was the 18-year-old goalkeepers first start in 2015 and he was unlucky to concede three goals in the match, which now sees his side in fourth place this season some ten points behind leaders Partizan. Milinković-Savić will move to Manchester at the end of the season to start with his new club and with Ben Amos and Sam Johnstone’s future both uncertain, it could mean that the Serbian goalkeeper could play under Warren Joyce in the new season where he will be able to adapt to life in Manchester. I for one and looking forward to seeing him in action.
Next Match: Jagodina – Super Liga – Saturday 14th March 2015, KO 14:00

Loan Watch: Nani & Henriquez both score; Amos continues to impress

 

Manchester United’s loan stars were back in action again this weekend. Nani and Angelo Henriquez both scored for their clubs and Ben Amos impressed for Bolton Wanderers. Ben Pearson, Saidy Janko, Vanja Milinković-Savić, Will Keane and Javier Hernandez missed out for their loan clubs either through injury, not being involved in the match day squads and not being utilised from the bench. Jesse Lingard’s Derby County lost their fourth match in six (with two draws) and are now in danger of dropping out of the play-off places in the Sky Bet Championship.

 

Here is how I feel the loan stars fared weekend:

 

Tom Cleverley – Aston Villa 

Tom Cleverley played 25 minutes in the 1-0 defeat to Swansea City in the Barclays Premier League. Cleverley didn’t do a lot in the game due to being substituted due to a groin injury he picked up during the first 25 minutes of the match he was subbed for Carlos Sanchez.

Next Match: Manchester United – Barclays Premier League – Saturday 4th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Ben Amos – Bolton Wanderers 

Ben Amos played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Wigan Athletic in the Sky Bet Championship. Amos had a pretty good game saving his team on numerous occasions. He made one brilliant saving with two minutes to go with a right footed shot by Sheyi Ojo which was tipped round the post. But the goal wasn’t his fault it was scramble in the six yard box and a Wigan player tapped it home to make it 1-1.

Next Match: Blackpool – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 4th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Saidy Janko – Bolton Wanderers 

Saidy Janko was not involved in the 1-1 draw against Wigan Athletic in the Sky Bet Championship due to injury.

Next Match: Blackpool – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 4th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Jesse Lingard – Derby County

Jesse Lingard played 90 minutes in the 2-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Sky Bet Championship on Friday evening. The Manchester United attacking midfielder had four shots on target, but former United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak saved all of them, which must have been frustrating for the youngster. In total, the Rams had 19 shots on goal, eight were on target and saved, one his the crossbar, four were blocked and six were off target – compared to Wolves’ ten shots; two were scored, one hit the crossbar, six off target and two were saved, Derby were unlucky. Lingard had 93% pass success and created two chances for his team-mates. Big match against Watford after the international break beckons for Derby and that is a must win match with them holding onto fifth place on goal difference, a point ahead of seventh placed Brentford.

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End 

Sam Johnstone played the full 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Barnsley in the Sky Bet League One. Johnstone showed his class once again in goal for Preston with some brilliant saves to keep Preston fighting for Promotion from League One.

Next Match: Fleetwood Town – Sky Bet League One – Sunday 29th March 2015; KO 14:15

 

Javier Hernandez – Real Madrid 

Javier Hernandez was an unused substitute in the 2-1 defeat to Barcelona in the La Liga on Sunday evening. The Mexican seems to be having a worse season that the last, where he got more playing time under David Moyes at Manchester United, but may not have got many minutes under Louis van Gaal this season. He looks like he’s lost his position at both clubs with the summer maybe solving some problems for the fallen Mexican.

Next Match: Granada – La Liga – Sunday 5th April 2015; KO 11:00

 

Guillermo Varela – Real Madrid II

Guillermo Varela played 90 minutes in the 2-1 defeat to Rayo Vallecano II on Sunday morning, putting the Spanish Giants youth side five points adrift of the top of the league. Varela had a good season with United in their U21 side last season and was loaned to the Madrid side’s second string this season, where he has done well at times. After ten minutes, the score was level at 1-1 but a winning goal four minutes from time broke Real Madrid’s second strings hearts, the same as Barcelona did with the first team on Sunday evening.

Next Match: Las Palmas II – Segunda B – Saturday 28th March 2015; KO 11:00

 

Nani – Sporting Lisbon 

Nani played 90 minutes in the 4-1 victory over Vitória Guimarães in the Primeira Liga. Nani had an average game at best didn’t really cause a lot of problems for the opposition side. He scored from spot to make it 4-0 after he was taken down from behind in the box. Overall he was poor throughout the game he didn’t create a lot for his side and just gave up when he lost the ball.

Next Match: Paços de Ferreira – Primeira Liga – Saturday 4th April 2015; KO 20:15

 

Angelo Henriquez – Dinamo Zagreb

Angelo Henriquez played 90 minutes in the 4-1 victory over Istra 1961 in the 1.HNL. Henriquez played well in the dominant win and he also managed to bag another goal with a strike inside the box which made it 2-0 after 32 minutes. The Chilean has shown in some matches what he’s capable of doing, but he’s not shown it as much as he could. He’s played 17 times for Dynamo Zagreb and managed to bag 12 goals in competitive matches this season.

Next Match: Rijeka – 1.HNL – Saturday 4th April 2015; KO 16:00

Loan Watch: Amos impresses for Bolton Wanderers!

 

Manchester United’s loan stars were in action again this weekend for their respective sides, and some will be in action again today, Easter Monday. None of the loan stars found the back of the net this weekend, but many did play well, which looks promising. Will Keane, Saidy Janko and Vanja Milinković-Savić were not involved in their teams matches this weekend.

Here is how I feel the players fared this weekend:

 

Tom Cleverley – Aston Villa

Tom Cleverley was not eligible to play again his parent club Manchester United in the 3-1 defeat at Old Trafford in the Barclays Premier League this weekend. Cleverley has recently been sidelined through injury and should return for his side on Tuesday evening.

Next Match: Queens Park Rangers – Barclays Premier League – Tuesday 7th April 2015; KO 19:45

 

Ben Amos – Bolton Wanderers

Ben Amos played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Blackpool in the Sky Bet Championship. Amos played well and saved his team numerous times when Blackpool had a chance on goal. It all paid off in the last couple of minutes when Bolton equalised. The Manchester United keeper has really impressed since he’s been on loan, but his contract is up in the summer and a host of clubs will most likely be looking at him after these brilliant recent performances.

Next Match: Cardiff City – Sky Bet Championship – Monday 6th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Saidy Janko – Bolton Wanderers

Saidy Janko was not involved in the 1-1 draw with Blackpool in the Sky Bet Championship this weekend.

Next Match: Cardiff City – Sky Bet Championship – Monday 6th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Jesse Lingard – Derby County

Jesse Lingard played 45 minutes in the 2-2 draw with promotion rivals  Watford in the Sky Bet Championship. Lingard came on and made a difference in attack for Derby County and played apart in the goal which made it 2-1 to Derby, but they just couldn’t hold on against the 10 men Watford side. Derby are still in the play-off places, but by the skin of their teeth and must beat Wigan Athletic on Monday afternoon.

Next Match: Wigan Athletic – Sky Bet Championship – Monday 6th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Reece James – Huddersfield Town

Reece James played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday in the Sky Bet Championship. James played well in a wing-back position and offered a lot both in attack and defence. He caused a lot of trouble for the Owls and his side should have scored when they had the opportunities.

Next Match: Ipswich Town – Sky Bet Championship – Monday 6th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Will Keane – Sheffield Wednesday

Will Keane was not involved in the 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town in the Sky Bet Championship this weekend due to injury.

Next Match: Norwich City – Sky Bet Championship – Monday 6th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Ben Pearson – Barnsley

Ben Pearson played 90 minutes in the 2-0 defeat to Sheffield United in the Sky Bet League One. Pearson had an average game and did not really do a lot in midfield, being outplayed by Sheffield United’s midfield. The young United midfielder has really impressed since being on loan and has really become key to Barnsley’s midfield.

Next Match: Colchester United – Sky Bet League One – Monday 6th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End

Sam Johnstone played 90 minutes in the 1-0 win over Rochdale in the Sky Bet League One. Johnstone made some key saves in the 1-0 win which was key to keep their promotion push with them lying in second place, five points ahead of Milton Keynes Dons. The young English goalkeeper is really showing his class since he’s been on loan at Preston and could have a place as the number two goalkeeper at Manchester United, if David De Gea leaves the Old Trafford club in the summer.

Next Match: Bradford City – Sky Bet League One – Monday 6th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Javier Hernandez – Real Madrid 

Javier Hernandez played 29 minutes in the 9-1 win over Granada in the La Liga. Hernandez did not really create a lot or get himself a lot of opportunities. He had one key chance when he headed straight at the Granada goalkeeper. Chicarito has not really shone at Real Madrid since his loan deal commenced in the summer and may well be looking for a new club when finally returns to Old Trafford.

Next Match: Eibar – La Liga – Saturday 11th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Guillermo Varela – Real Madrid II

Guillermo Varela played 90 minutes in the 2-0 victory over Conquense in the Spanish Segunda B this weekend. The Uruguayan right-back has played in the majority of Real Madrid II’s matches this season after moving to the club on a season long loan deal from Manchester United. It is not yet known whether the player will return to the AON Training Complex in the summer, or whether a permanent deal in the Spanish capital, or even to another club could be possible. Real Madrid II currently lie sixth in the league at this stage of the season, some six points behind league leaders Huesca.

Next Match: Tudelano – Segunda B – Saturday 11th April 2015; KO TBA

 

Nani – Sporting Lisbon

Nani played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Paços de Ferreira in the Primeira Liga. Nani did not have a good game for his loan club, getting himself booked in the 26th minute of the match. The Portuguese winger really did not offer much in an attacking sense and was lazy in coming back to defend. Many see Nani as a player who could come back to Old Trafford and all of a sudden find his form. I do not think that will happen for the Portuguese winger. If he was in Louis van Gaal’s plans in the summer, he would not have been loaned out for the whole of the season.

Next Match: Nacional – Primeira Liga – Wednesday 8th April 2015; KO: 20:00

 

Angelo Henriquez – Dinamo Zagreb

Angelo Henriquez played 90 minutes in the 2-2 draw with Rijeka in the 1.HNL this weekend. The Chilean striker did not get himself on the score sheet, but played well in the draw, which keeps them at the top of the league, still by 14 points over their opposition, who they play again on Wednesday in the HC Nogometni Cup. Henriquez could end up signing for Dynamo Zagreb in the summer, which was part of his loan agreement, but nothing seems to have been confirmed, although the club are wanting to make the deal permanent.

Next Match: Rijeka – HC Nogometni Cup – Wednesday 8th April 2015; KO 17:00

 

Vanja Milinković-Savić – FK Vojvodina

Vanja Milinković-Savić was not involved for his side in their 1-0 victory over Spartak Subotica this weekend. The now 18-year-old goalkeeper has made 16 appearances for his club so far this season, keeping seven clean sheets, which is pretty good. Vojvodina remain in fourth place in the Super Liga, some thirteen points off the top spot, but three short of third place. Milinković-Savić will make his move to Manchester United permanent in the summer, then we will get to see more of him and what he can do, depending on which youth team he plays in of course. He will be eligible to play in Paul McGuinness’ U18 side and also Warren Joyce’s U21 side.

Next Match: Napredak – Super Liga – Saturday 11th April 2015; KO 14:30

Loan Watch: Johnstone earns eighth Preston clean sheet; fortifying Championship bid

 

Manchester United’s loan stars were in action again on Easter Monday with the Sky Bet Championship and League One clubs continuing their push for promotion, or to avoid relegation.

Here is how I feel the players fared on Monday afternoon:

 

Saidy Janko – Bolton Wanderers

Saidy Janko played 66 minutes in the 3-0 victory over Cardiff City in the Sky Bet Championship on Monday afternoon. The Swiss youth international who completed a loan deal with Bolton during the January transfer window, scoring and assisting in his debut helped the Trotters maintain possession with his 85% pass success rate. He did not have a shot on goal from his right-back position, but he played a cross into the area at the end of the first half, which did not reach its man. Janice covered a lot of area on the right, winning one out of three take ons.

Next Match: Norwich City – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 11th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Jesse Lingard – Derby County

Jesse Lingard was an unused substitute in the 2-0 victory over Wigan Athletic in the Sky Bet Championship on Monday afternoon whitewash Derby County move a step forward in earning a play-off place this season. A win was needed and obtained with any other result likely to push the side out of the play-off places. There is still more to do for the side which topped the Championship only a matter of weeks ago.

Next Match: Brentford â€“ Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 11th April 2015; KO 12:15

 

Reece James – Huddersfield Town

Reece James played 90 minutes in 2-1 victory over Ipswich Town in the Sky Bet Championship on Monday afternoon. James playing as a wing-back once again and it was his passing which let him down, 52% pass success rate. The Manchester United defender created one chance during the match with a 51st minute corner, which amounted to nothing, but the Terriers were still in the lead with no more goals being scored in the remainder of the match. Reece James put eight crosses into the area, five failed, three reached their intended target, with one being the only chance the player created in the match. This performance and the resulting victory will no doubt boost the players confidence for the remainder of the season.

 

Next Match: Nottingham Forest â€“ Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 11th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Will Keane – Sheffield Wednesday

Will Keane was not involved in the 2-0 defeat to Norwich City in the Sky Bet Championship on Monday afternoon.

Next Match: Charlton Athletic â€“ Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 11th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Ben Pearson – Barnsley

Ben Pearson played 90 minutes in the 3-1 defeat to relegation threatened Colchester United in the Sky Bet League One on Monday afternoon. It was the second defeat for Barnsley this weekend, which could have meant to much more providing two victories were achieved. Barnsley could have pushed for a play-off place this season, which now seems out of reach with Chesterfield sitting seven points above them in sixth place. Pearson had a shot on goal, which could have put Barnsley 2-1 up inside the 72nd minute, but his attempt was blocked. Colchester scored twice in six minutes to earn their well-deserved victory.

Next Match: Chesterfield – Sky Bet League One – Saturday 11th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End

Sam Johnstone played 90 minutes in the 3-0 victory over Bradford City in the Sky Bet League One on Monday afternoon, which saw the North West club fortify their second placed position in the league going eight points clear over MK Dons, who lie in third place, outside the automatic promotion spot, although MK Dons do have a game in hand over Preston. Johnstone kept his eighth clean sheet for Preston after leaving Doncaster Rovers during the winter transfer window, where he kept four clean sheets earlier this season. Johnstone is progressing as a goalkeeper, and depending on the future of David De Gea, he could play a part for United in the future.

Next Match: Bristol City – Sky Bet League One – Saturday 11th April 2015; KO 15:00

Loan Watch: Javier Hernandez bags a goal in rare 90 minute outing

 

Manchester United’s loan stars were in action again this weekend for their respective clubs. On loan Mexican striker Javier Hernandez got a rare 90 minute outing with Real Madrid this weekend, making it the fifth time the player has played the full match for his loan side, he paid his manager back by scoring the second goal for his side in a 3-0 victory. Angelo Henriquez, Will Keane, Vanja Milinković-Savić and Nani did not feature for their respective clubs.

 

Here is how I feel the players fared this weekend:

 

Tom Cleverley – Aston Villa

Tom Cleverley played 90 minutes in the 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday afternoon. This important victory will rise Tim Sherwood’s side six points above the relegation zone, but more importantly, he has beat the club he managed last season. Cleverley played a decent game for his loan club helping maintain possession with a 74% pass success rate, creating one chance for his team-mates with six minutes remaining, but that amounted to nothing. Cleverley won four out of six tackles and half of his aerial challenges, which helped Villa earn the three important points this season. The player is out of contract with Manchester United in the summer with reports linking him with a free transfer to Everton.

Next Match: Liverpool â€“ FA Cup â€“ Sunday 19th April 2015; KO 15:00

 

Saidy Janko – Bolton Wanderers

Saidy Janko played three minutes in the 2-1 defeat to Norwich City in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon. The defeat keeps Bolton thirteen points clear of the relegation places with no chance of earning a play-off place this season, so there is nothing to play for but pride. Janice has a great debut after he made the switch on transfer deadline day back in February, but he has yet to match that, and will be unlikely to given the amount of playing time he has been given. Janice did not get involved in the match, which is understandable. Perhaps he will be given more playing time against Charlton Athletic on Tuesday evening.

Next Match: Charlton Athletic – Sky Bet Championship – Tuesday 14th April 2015; KO 20:00

 

Jesse Lingard – Derby County

Jesse Lingard replaced Craig Bryson in the 78th minute of the 1-1 draw with Brentford in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon. The Manchester United attacking midfielder had one shot on goal in his first five minutes on the pitch, but it was blocked on the edge of the area. Lingard had 56% pass success with four going stray. Twelve minutes may not have been enough for the midfielder to become involved in the match, but Derby did play a little better when Zak Whitbread and Lingard were both introduced. A late injury time goal scored by Darren Bent rescued a point for the Rams, who should stay in the play-off places this weekend going into a midweek match against the already relegated Blackpool, which could propel the Rams higher in the Championship.

Next Match: Blackpool – Sky Bet Championship – Tuesday 14th April 2015; KO 19:45

 

Reece James – Huddersfield Town

Reece James played 90 minutes in the 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest in the Sky Bet Championship in Saturday afternoon. The Manchester United left-back played the role of a left-wing back throughout the match, helping to maintain possession with a 60% pass success rate. James created a chance for his team-mates from the corner with seven minutes remaining, but the chance amounted to nothing. James played twelve crosses into the area during the match with only two successful, which shows he needs to perfect a lot of his gameplay. James won 43% of his tackles, also making two defensive clearances during the victory which saw Huddersfield Town rise above Bolton Wanderers in sixteenth place.

Next Match: Brighton & Hove Albion â€“ Sky Bet Championship – Tuesday 14th April 2015; KO 19:45

 

Will Keane – Sheffield Wednesday

Will Keane not involved in the 1-1 draw with Charlton Athletic in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon. The Owls remain in thirteenth place in the Championship with a play-off place out of the window weeks ago, but the side still have their pride to play for.

Next Match: Brentford â€“ Sky Bet Championship – Tuesday 14th April 2015; KO 19:45

 

Ben Pearson – Barnsley

Ben Pearson played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Chesterfield in the Sky Bet League One on Saturday afternoon. The Manchester United midfielder has adapted to League One football this season after stepping up from the U21 side, which is good to see. Many feel the player could rise to the top, but he will need at least another loan spell in order to see what his level of football is. He is too good for the under-fire U21 league, which does not really offer competitive football, so maybe a loan spell at a Championship club next season could see whether the lad is capable of rising to the next level. He is definitely a player for the future and seems to be one that first team manager Louis van Gaal is casting an eye over.

 

Next Match: Notts County â€“ Sky Bet League One – Tuesday 14th April 2015; KO 19:45

 

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End

Sam Johnstone played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Bristol City in the Sky Bet League One on Saturday afternoon. Johnstone could have kept a clean sheet with Jermaine Beckford scoring the first goal of the match in the 59th minute, but just four minutes later, the Manchester United goalkeeper was unable to stop Aaron Wilbraham from finding the equaliser, which kept City eight points clear over Preston North End at the top of the league table. Johnstone has had a good season on loan with Doncaster Rovers and Preston, and could help his side win promotion to the Championship next season with them currently having a five point lead over MK Dons who are in third place.

Next Match: Gillingham â€“ Sky Bet League One – Tuesday 14th April 2015; KO 19:45

 

Javier Hernandez – Real Madrid 

Javier Hernandez played a rare 90 minutes in the 3-0 victory over Eibar in La Liga on Saturday afternoon. Los Blancos close the gap with Barcelona to just one point, with the Catalan club playing later on Saturday evening away to Sevilla. Hernandez scored his fifth goal for Real Madrid this season after 31 minutes, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring ten minutes before. The Mexican striker as assisted by Alvaro Arbeloa, finding the back of the net with a header into the bottom left corner. Hernandez had four shots on goal throughout the match, two were saved, one was off target and of course the other was his 31st minute goal. With Real Madrid facing Atlético Madrid in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday evening, Carlo Ancelotti rested the likes of James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, keeping them fresh in their bid to retain the title they won for the tenth time at the end of last season.

Next Match: Atlético Madrid â€“ UEFA Champions League â€“ Tuesday 14th April 2015; KO 19:45

 

Guillermo Varela – Real Madrid II

Guillermo Varela played 76 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Tudelano in the Spanish Segunda B on Sunday afternoon. The Uruguayan right-back was booked in the 71st minute, just five minutes before he was replaced by Enzo Fernández, the son of former Real Madrid midfielder Zinedine Zidane. Varela may not have a future at Old Trafford next season, but he may also not earn a place in Real Madrid’s second side. It was a shame to see the young Uruguayan leave the club on a season long loan spell, but it seems he was not happy in Manchester. Real Madrid II have been pushed down to fifth in the league, with a lot to do to get back into the top four.

Next Match: Real Unión â€“ Segunda B – Sunday 18th April 2015; KO TBA

 

Nani – Sporting Lisbon

Nani did not feature in the 2-1 victory over Vitória Setúbal in the Premeira Liga on Sunday evening. The match saw a player from each side sent off and goals from Carlos Mané and Junya Tanaka for the away side, who sit seven points above Sporting Braga in third place in the league, eight points adrift of second placed Porto and eleven points adrift of league leaders Benfica. Nan has been hit and miss for his former club this season, getting himself into some good form, but failing to reach that consistency level needed. His future at United may not look good heading into the summer, but Louis van Gaal will ultimately make the final decision.

Next Match: Boavista â€“ Primeira Liga – Sunday 19th April 2015; KO: 16:00

 

Angelo Henriquez – Dinamo Zagreb

Angelo Henriquez was not involved in the 0-0 draw with Slaven Koprivnica on Sunday afternoon. Dinamo had nine shots, four on target, five off target throughout the match with the home side registering five shots, three on target, two off target – but a goal was something that never materialised for both sides. Dinamo are twelve points clear at the top of the Super Liga, with eight matches remaining this season.

Next Match: Lokomotiva Zagreb â€“ 1.HNL â€“ Friday 17th April 2015; KO 17:00

 

Vanja Milinković-Savić – FK Vojvodina

Vanja Milinković-Savić was not involved in the 1-0 defeat to Napredak in the Super Liga on Thursday evening. FK Vojvodina stay in fourth place in the league and could be at least six points from third place should ÄŒukariÄki win this weekend.

Next Match: Novi Pazar – Super Liga – Saturday 18th April 2015; KO 15:00

Loan Watch: Tom Cleverley scores Villa debut, Chicharito scores a brace!

Manchester United’s loan stars were in action again this weekend for their respective clubs. Tom Cleverley scored for Aston Villa against Manchester City on Saturday evening, putting Villa back into the match after being 2-0 down. It was good to see Cleverley score his first goal for his loan club, a club he could sign for on a free this summer, with Everton also waiting in the wings. Javier Hernandez has also had a good week, scoring the deciding goal against Atlético Madrid in the UEFA Champions League, at the death, and grabbing himself a brace against Celta Vigo on Sunday. Both players are similar in that fact they could both be out the door this summer.

 

Here is how I feel the players fared this weekend:

 

Tom Cleverley – Aston Villa

Tom Cleverley played 90 minutes in the 3-2 defeat to Manchester City in the Barclays Premier League. Cleverley had an average game in the midfield for Villa. Manchester City scored an early goal from an error by Brad Guzan. But Cleverley really stepped up after that and got the ball a lot more, his accuracy improved with his passing. The Manchester United midfielder scored his first goal for Villa since he joined them on loan in the summer. City took the lead through a late goal, breaking Villa’s hearts, who still have a lot to do to avoid relegation, but the Cup final at the end of May will be in their minds after they achieve safety in the Premier League.

Next Match: Everton â€“ Barclays Premier League â€“ Saturday 2nd May 2015; KO 15:00

 

Jesse Lingard – Derby County

Jesse Lingard played 45 minutes in the 3-3 draw with Millwall in the Sky Bet Championship. Lingard did not have a good game really, he just didn’t get into it. The Manchester United forward did not have a chance and failed show what he can do. Derby County have recently lost form and have seen them drop from first to sixth over the last 11 games in the Championship. If Derby want to be in with a chance of Premier League football next season, they will need to ensure they at least take a point against Reading at the weekend.

Next Match: Reading â€“ Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 2nd May 2015; KO 12:15

 

Reece James – Huddersfield Town

Reece James was not involved in the 2-2 draw against Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Next Match: Blackpool – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 2nd May 2015; KO 12:15

 

Will Keane – Sheffield Wednesday

Will Keane played 26 minutes in the 2-1 defeat to Leeds United in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon. Keane returned from injury replacing Lloyd Isgrove in the 64th minute of the match, not getting much involvement during the time spent on the pitch. The Manchester United striker had 50% pass accuracy, with no shots, chances created or anything of note during his 26 minute appearance. If Keane is to earn a new contract at United, with his current deal expiring this summer, he really needs to do much better. I personally feel that he will be offloaded this summer, which is a shame, but there is no sentiment in football, especially now.

Next Match: Watford â€“ Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 2nd May 2015; KO 12:15

 

Ben Pearson – Barnsley

Ben Pearson played 90 minutes in the 1-0 defeat to Bradford City in the Sky Bet League One. The young Manchester United midfielder has really impressed since he joined Barnsley on loan and personally I think he deserves a chance in the first team squad next season.

Next Match: Rochdale â€“ Sky Bet League One – Sunday 3rd May 2015; KO 12:15

 

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End

Sam Johnstone played 90 minutes in the 3-0 win over promotion rivals Swindon Town in the Sky Bet League One. Johnstone did not have a lot to do in the win. He made two saves the whole game and one of them was a cracker, which kept the game at 2-0. The Manchester United keeper could be United’s number two next season if David De Gea leaves the club, with the speculation that has been popping up in the media, it could happen.

Next Match: Colchester United â€“ Sky Bet League One – Sunday 3rd May 2015; KO 12:15

 

Javier Hernandez – Real Madrid 

Javier Hernandez played 74 minutes in the 4-2 victory over Celta Vigo in La Liga on Sunday evening. The on loan Manchester United striker is being utilised because of Karim Benzema’s injury, which has given the Mexican the confidence, scoring three goals in his last two matches, the UEFA Champions League goal against Atlético Madrid being the bigger of the three. Hernandez had three shots on goal; scoring twice and the other was off target. His passing was good, 81% found a team-mate. It does not look good for Chicharito to return to Old Trafford in the summer though, with Louis van Gaal seemingly not being all that impressed.

Next Match: Almería – La Liga â€“ Wednesday 29th April 2015; KO 19:00

 

Guillermo Varela – Real Madrid II

Guillermo Varela played 90 minutes in the 2-2 draw with Sestao River in the Segunda B. Varela had a decent game at right-back and offered a lot in attack when he needed. The Manchester United defender could possibly leave in the summer due to not been giving a chance in the first team, but due to all the speculation with Manchester United looking for a new right back in the summer he might get his chance to shine in the first team.

Next Match: Real Sociedad II â€“ Segunda B – Saturday 2nd May 2015; KO TBA

 

Angelo Henriquez – Dinamo Zagreb

Angelo Henriquez played 65 minutes in the 1-0 win over Zadar in the 1.HNL. Henriquez didn’t have the best of games since he joined Dynamo Zagreb. The Chilean forward could be another player leaving in the summer from Manchester United due to no first team game time since Louis Van Gaal joined the club in the summer and doesn’t seem to be in his plans for the future.

Loan Watch: Nani fails to shine and faces uncertain future

Manchester United’s loan stars were in action again for their respective clubs. On Monday evening, Nani was the only player to feature for his loan club, with Saidy Janko to part of the squad who lost to AFC Bournemouth in the penultimate match of the Championship season. Here is how I feel the players fared this weekend:

 

Saidy Janko – Bolton Wanderers

Saidy Janko was not involved in the 3-0 defeat to AFC Bournemouth in the Sky Bet Championship on Monday evening.

Next Match: Birmingham City â€“ Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 2nd May 2015; KO 12:15

 

Nani – Sporting Lisbon

Nani played 84 minutes in the 4-2 victory over Moreirense in the Primeira Liga on Monday evening. The Manchester United loanee was replaced with six minutes remaining. Nani was not in the form he has been in this season, scoring ten goals in all competitions for his loan club. Nani did force a save from the Moreirense goalkeeper and placed a decent free kick into the box in the second half, but did not score or assist any goals during this victory. Sporting are still in third place, nine points from the summit with six matches still to place this season. Six points separate Sporting and second placed Porto, so there is still something to play for this season.

Next Match: Nacional â€“ Primeira Liga – Saturday 2nd May 2015; KO: 20:15

Loan Watch: Angelo Henriquez bags another hat-trick!

 

Manchester United’s loan stars were in action again this weekend for their respective clubs. The season is fastly coming to a close with only seven left at their loan clubs, six of those players in action this weekend. Angelo Henriquez was the only player to find the back of the net this weekend, scoring another hat-trick for his loan club, which could be his permanent club this summer.

 

Here is how I feel the players fared this weekend:

 

Tom Cleverley – Aston Villa

Tom Cleverley played 90 minutes in the 6-1 defeat to Southampton in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday. The on loan Manchester United midfielder did not have the greatest match in his career, which saw the now safe Villains lose to the south coast club, with Saido Mané completing a hat-trick within three minutes of scoring his first goal. It was lucky Villa had ensure their Premier League status before this match, or they too could have been part of a three-way relegation battle on Sunday. Cleverley looks ot be recalled to the England squad this summer after scoring three goals in his last three matches, but his luck seems to have run out this weekend.

Next Match: Burnley – Barclays Premier League – Sunday 24th May 2015: KO 15:00

 

Javier Hernandez – Real Madrid

Javier Hernandez played 27 minutes in the 4-1 victory over Espanyol in La Liga on Sunday evening. The win was not enough to claim any advantage over Barcelona, or drag the race to secure the title into the final match of the season as Barcelona needed a win to crown them champions, which they got against Atlético Madrid. The Mexican striker has played quite a bit of football recently with the injury to Karim Benzema, the player he replaced with less than 30 minutes remaining in the match, with Real Madrid 1-0 up at the time the Mexican replaced the French striker. Hernandez really did not offer anything to his loan club, he had a shot ten minutes from time which was saved, but that was all he really did. His future at Old Trafford does not look as if it will last much past the summer either, even with United struggling up front this season.

Next Match: Getafe – La Liga – Saturday 23rd May 2015; KO 19:30

 

Guillermo Varela – Real Madrid II

Guillermo Varela played 90 minutes in the 1-0 victory over Toledo in the Spanish Segunda B this weekend. It was the final game of the season for Real Madrid’s second string, who will be glad it is all over after slipping from the top of the league to their final place – seventh, eleven points behind champions Huesca. Varela was loaned to Real Madrid for the season and little has bee reported as to whether there was a deal to make the move permanent, or if he would return to Old Trafford next season, which does seem unlikely.

Next Match: final match of the season

 

Nani – Sporting Lisbon

Nani played 84 minutes in the 4-1 victory over Sporting Braga in the Primeira Liga this weekend. The Portuguese winger on loan from Manchester United may have to fight for his place at the club next season with three years remaining on his contract and no suitors to sign him permanently, but few options for a loan move, with United expected to pay the majority of his wages. Many seem to still rate the winger, but with the likes of Ashley Young, Adnan Januzaj, Juan Mata, Angel Di Maria and now Memphis Depay at the club, Nani seems to have been left out in the cold, which is unsurprising being that he is so inconsistent and seems to have failed to establish a place in the plans for the club. United may be better off paying him off, rather than paying his wages and seeing him waste his career at a club where he is pretty much unwanted. Sporting Lisbon are guaranteed third place this season, whether they win their final league match of not. They cannot finish higher. The do have a final to play, the Taça de Portugal, against Sporting Braga, the team they beat this weekend.

Next Match: Rio Ave â€“ Primeira Liga – Sunday 24th May 2015; KO: 16:00

 

Angelo Henriquez – Dynamo Zagreb

Angelo Henriquez played 90 minutes in the 4-0 victory over Hajduk Split in the 1.HNL. Henriquez had an excellent game for his side and managed to score a hat-trick which took him yo 21 goals for the club this season. He could end up switching to the Croatian club permanently in the summer, which is something the player himself has reported stated to a Chilean radio station. Henriquez has done well this season and has a cup final to play on Wednesday, ahead of the final two league matches of the season.

Next Match: Split – HR Nogometni Cup – Wednesday 20th May 2015; KO 19:00

 

Vanja Milinković-Savić – FK Vojvodina

Vanja Milinković-Savić was not involved in the 1-0 victory over ÄŒukariÄki in the Super Liga this weekend. Fourth place is the highest and lowest Vojvodina can finish in the league this season. Milinković-Savić will make his permanent move to Manchester United this summer, where the supporters have waited the best part of a year to don the famous United shirt. With the future of David De Gea still being up in the air, the Serbian could be an important part of the future for United, providing he works hard and achieves what he is expected to.

Next Match: RadniÄki Kragujevac – Super Liga – Sunday 24th May 2015; KO 16:00
