'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Martin Loaned To Forest

Newly-promoted Nottingham Forest have landed United winger Lee Martin on a season-long loan.

The Championship side represent an excellent chance of first-team football for Martin who, I'm sad to say, has next to no chance of ever making it at Old Trafford. He's got pace and skill but not of the latter and his game is a bit one dimensional.

Good luck Lee, hopefully you'll enjoy a fantastic season!

Lee Martin is already in his early 20s, if he cant get a place in the United first team in a year or two year's time, It's time he left.

I can see a similar path to the one Chris Eagles took.

Good luck to the bloke!

I don't know if he'll ever make it for United (especially because we seem more keen on Portugeuse kids rather than English ones nowadays) but whether his career is with us, or somewhere else, this will be good experience for him. I wish him all the best.

Forever United, give him a chance: United have quite an few wingers, most who either developed their game earlier (due to being older) or somewhere else where there were more oppurtunities. Martin hasn't really had much of a chance to show what he can do. If he does well at Nottingham Forest, I think Fergie'll bring him back, and try him in the team to see if he can hold down a first-team place. If not, then yes, I agree, for the best of the lad's career, he should move on.

Sorry but he is one dimensional and defenders seem to read his game with ease, Kieron Richardson is a better player and look where he is, so its only a matter of time Martin moves on.

Bit harsh isn't it, Shutcho? He hasn't really had that much of a chance to prove himself.
