    Blackburn play Everton on Saturday, don't thin Jason Roberts situation has been sorted.

    Who are the other strikers he is competing against?

    My mate who's a Blackburn fan reckons it'll be Diouf and Kalinic when they play two up front, and one of them when it's 4-5-1. Roberts' place is on the bench.

    Cool. He is physical and not afraid to go for the high balls - so should fit well with Blackburn.

    Come on Big Sam - play him often.

    Diouf and Kalinic actually sounds like a good pairing. Kalinic is going to be a good striker one day.

    I think he'll get 5-10 goals if hes gets games. Hes terribly raw in someways but his movement in and around the box is very good. He should get some decent service from the likes of Emerton/Pedersen/Dunne and his cousin

    the little I've seen of him makes me think this is a good move for all concerned.
    hopefully it'll do him good and not be the end of his career in England.

    These PL loan deals are great.

    Suddenly the non-United games on MOTD become more interesting.

    Yeah good point, I also like that Fergie only loans players to his mates.

    Transitioning from homelessness to life in Liverpool might ease the culture shock.

    Look he can head the ball ... despite the cock up on the really weird missed header last season (seemingly the reason for many to say he is rubbish).

    This is the new Fergie transfer strategy -- buying enough players to populate not just the United team otherwise, insert them into other teams ie. mini-Uniteds, strengthen them to beat our main rivals on our behalf..

    Missed a chance (but, was offside - still would have been nice to put it away). One nice bit of play where he did a bunch of step overs and bought a bunch of time but, no one came to support him.

    I only saw the last few minutes, but unlike the other Diouff (spit spit) he did well trying to hold onto the ball and waste a bit of time, which shows he adapts well to different styles of management!

    He did well on his own, very raw but looked good. His speed is something else, and he was comfortable with the ball at his feet.

    Very raw? What an odd thing to say. He is raw, but how did he look raw today? Agree with the rest, did very well on his own, but his purpose to waste time as much as to score goals today.

    Have a feeling had Nzonzi missed the ball - Diouf was there to put it in. Just mean that the run he had made to the far post was a good one at the time - it made some space for Nzonzi to run into.

    Got into good positions and held the ball up well. With better support, he could have either made or scored. He will gain a lot of experience this year and be a valuable squad player for us next season.

    Because he looks like he has ability, but his all around game is still raw. His link up play can blow hot and cold, but there are positive signs. I'd probably rephrase that to raw now that I think about it.

    I meant to say: I agree in general, but didn't think it was evident today.

    Have not seen the Blackburn game highlights but it is obvious this deal is with a view to a sale. The same with Welbeck. The only way both players will return to OT next year is if they perform exceptionally bad or fantastically good.

    Not sure why anybody would think we want to sell Welbeck at this point. Seems a little bit of a silly opinion considering how highly he is rated by the coaching staff and how well he performed pre season.

    And is 19 years old...

    Every loan players go on is one they should impress in, but they aren't always do or die. Diouf's under a bit more pressure since he's older, but I doubt we've given up on him.
