That probably explains his early withdrawal then...
Watford fans were on Soccer AM this morning said he was the player they would like to sign in the Jan transfer window
He was substituted on 72 mins when Watford were 3 up, game won.
Watford also have a fairly difficult set of fixtures coming up as well (Crystal Palace in their vicinity, Newcastle table-toppers and QPR also in their vicinity) - not surprised Watford took him off (along with Helguson and Graham, probably their other best players).
Cleverly to Newcastle
No quotes, and appears to be a local newspaper.
Didn't he extend his loan with Watford anyway?
He'd be infinitely better than their wing options though.
Fergie thinks he will make it a Old Trafford...end of story.
Hope this doesn't come to pass. We've got a very nice loan deal happening for once, don't want to see anything spoiling it.
was watching young gifted and red (whatever its called) and eric harrison said cleverley will make it at united..
eric harrison knows what he is talking about. . seriously excited. . even if he eventually doesnt , we have a very special young player in him .
If I remember rightly, Harrison said that there was something wrong if Brandy (or it might have been Campbell) couldn't make it at United, so he's hardly an infallible source.
Yeh, that was about Campbell.
watford are in a financial mess .
their manager said that they had an option to extend the loan deal for till the end of the season but they had to pay a loan fee ...
could he be coming back in jan ?
It's possible, although he seems settled there and enjoying his football so it may be the best option for him to stay for the remainder of the season.
Given the extension was sealed, surely it means that they've already paid?
Or do they have a "get-out" clause too?
I think he'll find a different good loan if Watford can't afford him - he's got plenty of attention on him at the moment.
Hypothetically speaking, is there any chance he would stay if he came back? I can't see it myself, but he might provide valuable squad cover as well as being eligible for the CL knockout stages (I think he still qualifies on the B list so there wouldn't be any problems registering him), especially if we had an injury crisis on the wings.
The problem would be that it's the business end of the season so less chance for giving younger players a chance and it might stall his development as he has progressed past reserve level football. I would prefer him to take another loan, if Watford doesn't work out then he could maybe go to Leicester where he was succesful the season before or even Newcastle, but only if he has a chance of becoming a regular. The pressure of being involved in a promotion fight could be very beneficial for him.
There are 2 Carling cup fixtures and atleast 1 Fa cup 3rd round match.. If he is not cup tied for those I can see him staying atleast till the end of the month i.e if Watford do not take him on for the rest of the season..
TBH we have a form crisis on the wings. To the extent the left wing is ruled by a former winger. Who we can't do without anymore. Yet he is too old to use all the time.
Cleverley >>> Ljajic
Both Cleverley and Cathcart start tonight at home against QPR (Live on Sky)
Tough match in store for them tonight I reckon
thanks for this .. was bored ..
*goes looking for a stream*
veetle is good
is that ben watson in the QPR starting XI.. wasnt he at wigan
Cleverley starting in centre mid from the looks of it.
He's done well so far, he's certainly not afraid to have a go at goal.
cleverly getting into the game .
looks very comfortable .. wants the ball , passes it around well
He's looked a class above when he's been on the ball, he has a great first touch and rarely wastes it or is rushed. His movement off the ball is good too.
I rate Cleverley.
Can he play in central defence?
He can play left back.
cleverley played an important part .. kept the ball , played it wide left
While I would love to see a young player succeed there's no need to overstate everything he does. He was involved in the build up but the Watford right winger did very well to set up Doyley
Heh, though he did open up the play with a slick turn which lead to the goal, but he can hardly take the credit for the goal.
There has been a lot of talk about Gibson's mobility - Cleverly is certainly mobile, it's been great to watch him in action.
he did switch play from right to left .. lost his footing , kept the ball , got up and found the doyley out wide . not bad
nearly a 2nd for watford
Great! Another defender off and this one's on loan.We'llhave the fecking tea lady injured next.
I was only joking but we could do with him in Germany...
Cleverley with the assist.
Great goal. Neat assist from Cleverley.
Great assist by Cleverly, the boy looks very promising.
