Seems to be playing in quite an advanced position. Could do with playing holding midfield if he's gonna break into United squad

Why are they playing him so advanced? Watford are lumping the ball forward and he can’t get a touch. Surely he’s better of deeper spraying the ball around?

Played mainly as an attacking midfielder behind Deeny. Interesting to see Troy talking and pointing to Garner where he should be running etc.

Watford were poor in the first half. They were playing a direct long ball to Troy Deeney game (not very well might i add) with the hope his teammates would get the knockdowns.

In result Garner barely got on the ball.

Sarr had the only half decent chance in the first half

The second half was better from them. Got the ball down and played on the front foot. Squeezed up a bit. The pressure resulting in them gaining a penalty and a Brentford player sent off.

10 men Brentford pulled a goal back with a penalty in the 63rd minute

Garner came off on the 72nd minute

The commentator who is David Stowell who works for MUTV mentioned him playing more of a deeper role, that is where I see him.

yeah he's been playing most of his young career as a DM and CM. Thats where I think he'll end up

Last night he played a more advanced role which was really interesting.
I'm interested in hearing Watford's manager Ivic reasoning for this...

Hope Garner uses this as another learning experience..
All part of the boy's development process etc

Looked far better closing down attacks just in front of his back 4 than creating up too.

Good for his all round development to learn to play a variety of roles

Glad he is getting game time. Too many of our kids in the past go out on loan and warm the bench. Maybe we are choosing the right options for them now.

Thought he might be in the extend squad for Leeds game given his performances, any ideas when we might start seeing him more often? League cup seems like a good place to start him.

I hope whoever their next manager is Garner continues to get the games under his belt

1st team experience at this level is vital for him at this stage of his young career

I checked their last game forum discussion, lot of the fans unhappy with his style. Moaning about him tends to come deep asking for the ball so he can pass it back to centre back which useless they said. I stopped watching watford months ago since they played boring but based on the forum discussion I just read, he needs to play more risky and purpose.

Or he needs a better club than Watford.

Ivic was far too conservative which probably resulted in his sacking. Hopefully a new coach can release Garner into his best position

yes as always has been the case he needs to exert himself in games, be more assertive etc...

But at least he is getting games. this loan spell is a learning process for him

ultimately what we want is for him to come back a better player and person...and he's not going to get anything if he's sat on the bench..

How many games did he play in total already during this spell?

Not Forest's most recent match where Garner was on the bench for all but 2 mins, but his previous appearance all the touches against Blackburn where he played well

Now he's leading in Forest team in term of rating. So far so good, we might need tie him up new contract when season ends then send him on loan 1 more season.
After that, he should be able to challenge in United 1st team squad.

Forest on SS1 right now, Garner picking some nice passes against his former loan club. Forest are a bit under the cosh though.

He's the exact type of DM that we need in our line up.

I think that in 2 years after another loan - he'll be ready. he needs to develop and bulk up a little bit.
