OFFICIAL: Kuszczak joins on-loan from Red Devils

Watford have this afternoon signed Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak on loan for the rest of the season.

The 29 year old Polish international joins on an emergency loan and will stay at Vicarage Road until the end of the current campaign.

Former West Brom goalkeeper Kuszczak has spent the past five and ahead years at Old Trafford having arrived from The Hawthorns where he impressed hugely.

Kuszczak is now behind David de Gea, Anders Lindegaard and Ben Amos now for the Res Devils and has already announced his interiors to leave Manchester when his contract runs out at the end of the season.

The big Pole has also turned out for German Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin before coming to these shores and will wear the number 35 jersey at Vicarage Road.

Welcome to Watford, Tomasz.

A full profile of Kuszczak will be up later this afternoon.

Hope he goes straight in the team... S L is not the keeper we all thought he might be... He has too many mistakes in him... COYH....

SL is a good keeper, mistakes have cost us points, but you have to look at the coaching of the keeper, his weakness are on a par with how Chamberlin played. he is only young and i'm sure he will go on to be better. Bond is too young, but it shows the Gilmartin wants out or rid of.

I never worried about Chambo like I did about Loach. Loach has a real penchant for making stunning saves but then he will do something daft a few minutes later. I think Gilmartin will go as he is out of contract this summer. I would imagine we will really plough our time and resources into the highly-rated Jonathan Bond as our number two next summer. I think Gilmartin is at a stage where he is only going to develop by playing regularly and he will not get that here. For the sake of his own career I reckon he will elect to move on.

Sorry Tom, you miss my point. Chamberlin was a good keeper, but if your coaching and you are failling to deal with what was his achiles heel, is it not fair enough to assume that he is unable to coach his? The likes of Cotton, Eric Steele and Andy Rankin, were very Vocal in the box, yet Cotton was the only one to go through a crowd and win a ball. Steele got sent off for decking one of his players once, Rankin was just coolness. Chamberlin wasnt vocal and Loach is the same, which doesn't inspire confidence in the defence, his decision to come of the line and his postioning is poor, all things that are apparent and yet we see no improvement. Is this not down to the coach?
ANDY710
Oh right I see. In which case I agree with you Andy. Racking my brains now through our recent goalkeeping history and the only 'keeper I would say that ever fitted into that kind of category would have been Mart Poom. That was probably solely down to the fact he was already a very competent and experienced 'keeper when he arrived.

Chamberlain coached Foster into a goalkeeper that commanded his box well.

Chris you are right, but Foster had already had schooling at Stoke and then Man Utd under the guidance of Tony Cotton.
