CONFIMRED - Tyler Blackett

by Royal1988 » 19 Jun 2016 22:55

It seems that the mirror is reporting that Jaap Stam is trying to get defender Tyler Blackett on loan from Machester Utd. A fairly obvious link, so it may well just be paper talk, but if it's true, then what happened to no longer relying on loan players? If it is true, then this is a player who helped to concede 5 goals in one match, got sent off, and scored an own goal - all in just 12 starts. Is this someone that we would want anyway?

He sounds mental ... so just the kind of player JS would sign!

Brian McDermott was sacked, that's what happened.

Tyler Blackett is class and would be a good signing for our level. Definitely would welcome him alongside McShane or in a 3 in the formation Ian Royal suggested last week.

happy to have him as back up to mcshane gravenberch and cooper
less happy if he is to replace a departing cooper.
happiness would increase slightly if cooper went for a huge fee, and this deal was with a view to buy
but still...

I'd be more concerned that he spent the whole of last season on loan to Celtic and appears to have managed the princely total of 4 starts and a handful of sub appearances in that time.

Isnt he a full back rather than a central defender? Obvs. depends on what formation Stam has in mind but if that is the case might he more likely be competition for Obita or Gunter

suspect he might be better than Cooper and Gravenberch?? Just a hunch given he's played for Man Utd whereas Cooper and Gravy haven't

That message has continued under Stam.

Nothing wrong with loan players as long as they a brought in sparingly i.e no more than 2 at any one time and are brought in with a clear and realistic view to purchase or actually really are emergency loans

Indeed, in recent years see: Bertrand, Leigertwood, Khizanishvili and the legend that is Gorkss (nods to Leon).

Griffin. Going back further, Hahnemann and Little started as loans too didn't they?

Of the more recent ones, there's a clear link for most of them. But we sacked him a month or so ago.

On 25 July Charles Watts Reading FC are reportedly close to landing Manchester United defender Tyler Blackett.

Blackett has been with Manchester United since 2002 but it looks as though he could be set to leave the club this summer, with new boss Jose Mourinho making changes to the squad.

The defender, 22, had loan spells with Blackpool and Birmingham City in 2013 and 2014, playing a handful of games for each club as he gained first-team experience.

Blackett’s big chance came in the 2014-15 pre-season however, when Louis Van Gaal played the centre back in a 3-5-2 formation. But he failed to nail down a starting spot and it appears his future lies away from Old Trafford.


Suggests to me that if this deal happens it may well be permanent rather than a loan.

Wonder if the Liam Moore deal would still be a going concern ?

So this would be on a perm?

Would prefer this to Moore actually.

Man Utd want to cash in on him, not sure what he would command but I can't see it being a loan deal

I'd imagine they'd be happy with a deal focussed primarily on add ons and a sell on.

He can play centre half or left back - two positions we need so i'm all for this one

Plus he's big and black which is a bonus

Worse than Cummings when we first signed him,t he Cummings that we had to demote to the u21s.

Could come good, given time and experience but given how shaky our defence is I don't want another player we need to be massively developing at this stage to come in.
