Championship side Watford have snapped up Tomasz Kuszczak in an emergency loan deal until the end of the season. The polish keeper moved to United from West Brom in 2006 and was an able deputy to Edwin Van Der Sar in that time. Yet with the arrival of Anders Lindegaard last winter and Spanish stopper David De Gea this summer, the Pole In Goal has slid down the pecking order and even finds himself behind Ben Amos too. His only appearance in a squad this year was against Stoke earlier this year, where he sat on the bench with Amos playing. Anders Lindegaard and David De Gea were out due to injury and illness respectively.

His last appearence in United colours came in the 1-1 draw with Blackburn at the back end of last season. A game memorable because we wrapped up title number 19 (Love saying that) to surpass Liverpool's 18 (love saying that too).

Lets be honest here. He has no future at Old Traffod anymore, and will leave in the summer when his contract runs out. It is a great piece of business by Watford, as he is a very able keeper, without being world class. At Championship level, he will do a good job for them.

Overall thoughts on his career at United? A solid keeper who I trusted toi come into the side and do a decent job. Never was going to be the clubs number one though. Good shot stopper, maybe just a little lacking in the mental capacity to succeed at a club like United though.
