Loan Watch: Liam Grimshaw bags an assist; Sam Johnstone makes his debut for Preston

Manchester United currently have seven of their players out on loan; Tyler Blackett (Celtic) and Adnan Januzaj (Borussia Dortmund) and James Wilson (Brighton and Hove Albion) are on season long loans, whereas Sam Johnstone (Preston North End), Ben Pearson (Barnsley) which has now ceased, Liam Grimshaw (Motherwell), Donald Love (Wigan Athletic) and Kieran O’Hara (Stockport County) are spending temporary periods on loan with various clubs. It could be make or break for some, others are gaining first team experience, which will help them develop in the years to come. Here is how I feel the various players on loan fared for their clubs this weekend.

James Wilson – Brighton and Hove Albion

James Wilson played 90 minutes in the 1-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Sky Bet Championship on Friday afternoon. The Manchester United striker did not look like he was in good shape in this match, being sick on the pitch, which probably did not do him any good. He did have six shots on goal though, one was blocked, who were off target and three were saved by the Wolves keeper. His passing was good with 82% success, he created two chances for his team-mates and put in two crosses, one found its man. Wilson seems to be doing well on loan, it is a big step up for him from U21 football, but he needs to gain confidence in front of goal in order to rise to a higher challenge in the United first team.

Next Match: Hull City – Emirates FA Cup – Saturday 9th January 2016; KO 15:00

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End

Sam Johnstone played 90 minutes in his debut in the 2-1 victory over Rotherham United in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon. The Manchester United shot stopper made the move initially for a month, but wants to see out the remainder of the season with his hometown club. Johnstone did not have much to do in the match, conceding one goal, scored by Tony Andreu, putting the visitors in front inside the first 35 minutes. Johnstone made one save and two punches to clear his lines. The England U21 goalkeeper is a decent player to have, one would like to see him succeed at United, but with David De Gea ahead of him, he will only play a bit part, and should be playing regularly. He has a contract at United until the summer of 2017, so we shall see what happens in the meantime.

Next Match: Peterborough United – Emirates FA Cup – Saturday 9th January 2016; KO 15:00

Ben Pearson – Barnsley

Ben Pearson played 90 minutes in the 2-1 victory over Millwall in the Sky Bet League One on Saturday afternoon. This was Pearson’s final match for Barnsley as his loan spell has now ceased and he has returned to Manchester United, where he could feature for the U21’s against Tottenham Hotspur on Monday evening. There has been talk of Pearson being wanted by Premier League side AFC Bournemouth on loan for the remainder of the season, which will give the player a challenge to make the leap from U21 football, to League One football, to Premier League football, which could define the rest of his career. Pearson had an alright match for Barnsley, and I feel they will miss him for the remainder of the season.

Next Match: Fleetwood Town – Johnstone’s Paint Trophy – Saturday 9th January 2016; KO 15:00

Donald Love – Wigan Athletic

Donald Love was an unused substitute in the 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe United in the Sky Bet League One on Saturday afternoon.

Next Match: Gillingham – Sky Bet League One – Thursday 7th January 2016; KO 19:45

 

Kieran O’Hara – Stockport County

Kieran O’Hara did not feature for his loan club this weekend due to the match being postponed as a result of the recent bad weather.

Next Match: AFC Telford – Vanarama National League North – Saturday 9th January 2016; KO 15:00

Tyler Blackett – Celtic

Tyler Blackett was not involved in the match day squad in the 1-0 victory over Partick Thistle in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon. Blackett has not featured for his loan club since the 2-1 defeat to Molde in the UEFA Europa League on the 5th November 2015. Not much point in being on loan at a club who have no intent on including you in any matches. Time for him to be recalled and another loan be found for him.

Next Match: Stranraer – Scottish Cup – Sunday 10th January 2016; KO 15:15

Liam Grimshaw – Motherwell

Liam Grimshaw played 90 minutes in the 3-3 draw with Hamilton Academical in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon. The Manchester United defender/midfielder seems to be getting a lot of first team football this season, which is more than can be said for his team-mate Tyler Blackett, who is currently on loan with Celtic. Grimshaw was shown a yellow card in the 38th minute of the match for a bad foul, which is something he recovered from throughout the remainder of the match. Grimshaw assisted in his sides third goal of the match, scored by Louis Moult on the 57th minutes of the match, putting the side ahead for the second time. An injury time penalty levelled the score for the visitors though, which was a shame.

Next Match: Hearts – Scottish Premier League – Saturday 16th January 2016; KO 15:00

Adnan Januzaj – Borussia Dortmund

Adnan Januzaj was not in action for his loan club due to the Bundesliga having a winter break. There is currently speculation to suggest the Belgian winger could return from his loan spell during January, with United needing reinforcements during the transfer window in order to turn around their season.

Next Match: Borussia Mönchengladbach – Bundesliga – Saturday 23rd January 2016; KO 17:30

Loan Watch: Ashley Fletcher scores on debut for Barnsley

Manchester United currently have seven of their players out on loan; Tyler Blackett (Celtic) and James Wilson (Brighton and Hove Albion) are on season long loans, whereas Sam Johnstone (Preston North End), Ashley Fletcher (Barnsley), Liam Grimshaw (Motherwell), Donald Love (Wigan Athletic) and Kieran O’Hara (Stockport County) are spending temporary periods on loan with various clubs. It could be make or break for some, others are gaining first team experience, which will help them develop in the years to come. Here is how I feel the various players on loan fared for their clubs this weekend.

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End

Sam Johnstone was not involved in the 2-0 defeat to Peterborough United in the Emirates FA Cup.

Next Match: Bristol City – Sky Bet Championship – Tuesday 12th January 2016; KO 19:45

James Wilson – Brighton And Hove Albion

James Wilson was not involved in the 1-0 defeat to Hull City in the Emirates FA Cup.

Next Match: Rotherham United – Sky Bet Championship – Tuesday 12th January 2016; KO 19:45

Ashley Fletcher – Barnsley

Ashley Fletcher played 22 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Fleetwood Town in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy area final first leg. Fletcher opened his goal scoring account for Barnsley after five minutes after replacing Ryan Williams. It was Fletcher’s first senior goal and looked to impress the Barnsley manager. Some loan spells have not been so good for Manchester United’s youth players this season, and this one started well. Perhaps he will be involved much earlier in the next match, which would give the player some more confidence to succeed.

Next Match: Shrewsbury Town – Sky Bet League One – Saturday 16th November 2016; KO 15:00

Donald Love – Wigan Athletic

Donald Love was an unused substitute in the 3-2 victory over Gillingham in the Sky Bet League Two on Thursday evening.

Next Match:Sheffield United – Sky Bet League One – Tuesday 12th January 2016; KO 19:45

Tyler Blackett – Celtic

Tyler Blackett played 13 minutes in the 3-0 win against Stranraer in the Scottish Cup. Blackett did not make an impact as he came on so late in the game. It was his first appearance in a while for his loan club, which has caused some speculation in the players future at his loan club. There is not much point in him being at Celtic to learn, if he is seldom used. Manchester United should be looking to include him in the squad again, or find a club that will use him, which will help him develop. Right now, hit career is stalling at the selfish way he is being treated at the Scottish club.

Next Match: Dundee United – Scottish Premier League – Friday 15th January 2016; KO 19:45

Liam Grimshaw – Motherwell

Liam Grimshaw played 90 minutes in the 5-0 win against Cove in the Scottish Cup. He played well and showed his strengths and why he’s got a constant place in the Motherwell side. The Manchester United youngster is showing some quality in being able to play anyway across the midfield and even at right back which is a good sign for the future.

Next Match: Hearts – Scottish Premier League – Saturday 15th January 2016; KO 15:00

Kieran O’Hara – Stockport County

Kieran O’Hara was not involved in the 1-0 defeat to AFC Telford United in the Vanarama National League North.

Next Match: Nuneaton – Vanarama National League North – Saturday 16th January 2016; KO 15:00

LOAN MOVES AGREED FOR TWO UNITED KEEPERS

Manchester United goalkeepers Dean Henderson and Kieran O'Hara have today agreed to join Stockport County and Morecambe respectively on youth loan deals.

Henderson, 18, initially goes to Stockport for one month, with an option to extend the deal further.

Meanwhile, 19-year-old O'Hara will be with Morecambe for the remainder of the 2015/16 season, having already spent a temporary spell with the League Two outfit last September.

Both goalkeepers will be hoping to gain first-team experience during their time away from United.

Loan Watch: Henderson makes debut for Stockport; Wilson faces uphill battle

Manchester United currently have just five players out on loan. The season started with many players being given a chance on loan with first team football more likely for them, whether it was to give the players a confidence boost, or find a club for them during the next transfer window, which seems to have been the case with Ben Pearson, who signed for Preston North End recently and possible Liam Grimshaw, who was recalled from Motherwell, presumably for a similar thing to happen. Adnan Januzaj was recently recalled to his parent club, but is yet to make an appearance, which could come for the U21 side against Southampton on Monday evening.

James Wilson – Brighton & Hove Albion

James Wilson played 17 minutes in the 1-0 win against Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship. Wilson didn’t get into the game due to the lack of time he was on the pitch for, but he needs to win his place back in the side. Wilson is a talented player and his time at the Championship club suggests to me that he just is not ready to play for the Manchester United first team. He is the same age as Anthony Martial and the two players are worlds apart at this moment in time.

 

Next Match: Huddersfield Town – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 23rd January 2016; KO 15:00

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End

Sam Johnstone played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Ipswich Town in the Sky Bet Championship. Johnstone played well and made a couple of good saves in the match. He kept his side in the game after Ipswich got the equaliser. The English goalkeeper showed his potential in the match and has carried on his form from last season, which much of it was spent at Preston, helping them to a Sky Bet Championship place from League One, through the play-offs.

Next Match: Brentford – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 23rd January 2016; KO 15:00

Ashley Fletcher – Barnsley

Ashley Fletcher played 17 minutes in the 3-0 win against Shrewsbury Town in League One. Fletcher had one great chance, but it was blocked by a player in the box. He made some decent runs when he came on. The Manchester United striker will be loving his first team action, albeit from the bench. It will benefit his career and I am sure he will be given the chance from the start of a match soon, which will be good for him.

Next Match: AFC Rochdale – Sky Bet League One – Saturday 23rd January 2016; KO 15:00

Dean Henderson – Stockport County

Dean Henderson played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw Nuneaton Town in the Vanarama National League North. Henderson was unlucky to concede a goal on his debut as he was drawn from his line, instead of catching the ball in his arms, it was instead met by Rob Duffy, who headed the ball, it then looped over the Stockpoer defenders and into the back of the net. The young Manchester United goalkeeper was rarely tested in the area, and when he was, he had the ability to nip the attack in the bud. Hopefully, he will see his playing time extended in the coming weeks as his bids to prove himself in a first team environment.

Next Match: Gloucester City – Vanarama National League North – Saturday 23rd January 2016; KO 15:00

Tyler Blackett – Celtic

Tyler Blackett was not involved in the 4-1 victory over Dundee United in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Friday evening. Blackett needs to be recalled to either be utilised by United, or to find a club where he will play and therefore further his development. This loan spell is stopping his development.

Next Match: Hamilton Academical – Ladbrokes Premiership – Tuesday 19th January 2016; KO 19:45

Loan Watch: Wilson scores for Brighton; Fletcher grabs two assists for Barnsley!

Manchester United have seven players on loan currently, six of those were in action this weekend, with Victor Valdes’ loan spell with Belgian side Standard Liege not being announced until Sunday afternoon. This weekend James Wilson scored for Brighton & Hove Albion and Ashley Fletcher assisted twice for Barnsley. Sam Johnstone saw his loan spell with hometown club Preston North End finishing, with Preston replacing him with former United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard. Johnstone will now be resigned to the Barclays U21 Premier League, which I feel is stunting his development, unless he is going to be loaned out to a Premier League club, which I doubt. Here is how I feel the players fared this weekend.

James Wilson – Brighton & Hove Albion

James Wilson played 32 minutes in the 2-1 win against Huddersfield Town in the Sky Bet Championship. Wilson came on and eight minutes after coming and putting his team into the lead with a header from a corner who was floated into the box by Anthony Knockaert. He may have found his scoring boots again after going seven games without a goal.

Next Match: Hull City – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 30th January 2016; KO 15:00

Sam Johnstone – Preston North End

Sam Johnstone played 90 minutes in the 3-1 defeat to Brentford in the Sky Bet Championship. Johnstone didn’t have the best of games in goal, but he made some decent saves to keep his side in the game. He couldn’t prevent the last goal going in from John Swift which was cracking strike.

Next Match: Derby County – Sky Bet Championship – Tuesday 2nd February 2016; KO 15:00

Ashley Fletcher – Barnsley

Ashley Fletcher played 22 minutes in the 6-1 win against Rochdale in the Sky Bet League One. Fletcher came on and made a massive impact and manage to grab an assist after one minute on the pitch. He also grabbed another assist in the 89th minute and which made the game 6-1 to Barnsley. The Manchester United youngster has impressed while he’s been at Barnsley by grabbing one goal and two assists in the matches he’s played.

Next Match: Bradford City – Sky Bet League One – Tuesday 26th January 2016; KO 19:45

Kieran O’Hara – Morecambe

Kieran O’Hara played 90 minutes in the 3-1 defeat to Northampton Town in the Sky Bet League Two. O’Hara had an average game and was only at fault for one of the three goals that Northampton scored. He made a couple of saves early on in the game and also late on which saved his team from going further behind.

Next Match: Mansfield Town – Sky Bet League Two – Tuesday 26th January 2016; KO 15:00

Dean Henderson – Stockport County

Dean Henderson played 90 minutes in the 0-0 draw with Gloucester City in the Vanarama National League North. Henderson made some decent saves, but overall not much troubled the young keeper. He played well and was put under pressure with every cross and he dealt with that well.

Next Match: Harrogate Town – Vanarama National League North – Tuesday 2nd February 2016; KO 19:45

Tyler Blackett – Celtic

Tyler Blackett was not involved in the 3-1 victory over St Johnstone in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Saturday afternoon. Blackett is ot getting any regular game time, which is unfortunate. How both United and Celtic think he will develop with this loan spell stunting his growth as a player is beyond me. The lad has talent, albeit largely undeveloped, which is important he has a loan spell which will see him getting regular first team matches, something he is not getting with Celtic. I do not know how much longer I can write about it not being a good loan spell for the player. He is going to feel undervalued and fall out of love with the game, which will be on both United’s and Celtic’s watch.

Next Match: Ross County – Scottish League Cup – Sunday 31st January 2016; KO 15:00

Loan Watch: Wilson impresses for Brighton; Blackett misses out yet again!

Manchester United have seven players on loan currently, three of those were in action this weekend with James Wilson (Brighton & Hove Albion), Ashley Fletcher (Barnsley) and Victor Valdes (Standard Liege). Nick Powell made a move to Hull City on transfer deadline day last Monday, but was not included in his sides team this weekend. Here is how I feel the players fared this weekend.

James Wilson – Brighton & Hove Albion

James Wilson played 45 minutes in the dominant 3-0 win against Brentford in the Sky Bet Championship. Wilson came on and made a real difference in the attack aspect of play for Brighton and played a part in one of the goals too. He made a fantastic run into the box which took two of the Brentford defenders out the game which resulted in a goal for his team.

Next Match: Bolton Wanderers – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 13th February 2016; KO 15:00

Nick Powell – Hull City

Nick Powell was not involved in the 1-0 defeat to Burnley in the Sky Bet Championship.

Next Match: Blackburn Rovers – Sky Bet Championship – Saturday 13th February 2016; KO 15:00

Ashley Fletcher – Barnsley

Ashley Fletcher played 25 minutes in the 3-0 win against Bury in the Sky Bet League One. Fletcher had a couple of chances in the match, which could have made a bigger win for Barnsley, but he missed the header by inches. He has impressed since being on loan at Barnsley and now they’re looking for a manager after their old manager joined Bristol City on Saturday afternoon.

Next Match: Gillingham – Sky Bet League One – Saturday 13th February 2016; KO 15:00

Kieran O’Hara – Morecambe

Kieran O’Hara did not feature in the 2-1 defeat to Mansfield Town in the Sky Bet League Two.

Next Match: Oxford United – Sky Bet League Two – Saturday 13th February 2016; KO 15:00

Dean Henderson – Stockport County

Dean Henderson did not play as the game was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Next Match: Bradford P A – Vanarama National League North – Saturday 13th February 2016; KO 15:00

Tyler Blackett – Celtic

Tyler Blackett did not feature in the 2-0 win against East Kilbride in the Scottish Cup. Blackett is not getting enough game time so this is stalling his development in his career. personally I’d rather have him back at Manchester United playing in the U21’s or joining another team on loan.

Next Match: Ross County – Scottish Premiership – Saturday 13th February 2016; KO 15:00

Victor Valdes – Standard Liege

Victor Valdes played 90 minutes in the 2-1 defeat to STVV in the Jupilier Pro League on Sunday evening. It was the Spaniard’s debut at home, previously making his debut for the club in the past week. Standard Liege took the lead inside 21 minutes through Edmilson, but conceded twice either side of the half with the goals scored by Nick Proschwitz. Valdes might be a bit rusty after not playing any first team football, or any football at all since the final day of last season.

Next Match: KVC Westerlo – Jupilier Pro League – Sunday 14th February 2016; KO 17:00
