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

United - Welbeck Woe?

There`s always an inherent danger that when a youngster is sent on loan to gain some much needed regular first team experience, matters don`t always turn out as expected.

If we look at the example ofDanny Welbeck, it was decreed that Danny would be well served by signing for Sunderland, where under the stewardship of Steve Bruce, it was hoped he`d get the experience previously referenced.

Before the season started, Steve sold one Sunderland striker, Kenwyne Jones, to Stoke and it looked as if Danny would get his fair share of starts partnering either Sunderland`s top scorer - Darren Bent, or another United old-boy - Frazier Campbell.

Sadly for Campbell, a knee injury sustained on Saturday has sidelined him for up to six months, which in a harsh sort of way might have given Danny the opportunity to become a Sunderland regular.

That was until yesterday!

On transfer deadline day, Steve Bruce broke Sunderland`s transfer record by purchasing another striker - Asamoah Gyan.

Obviously, his high price would seem to indicate that Steve Bruce is going to partner Gyan with Bent, leaving Danny`s hopes for regular first team football not looking too far removed from the hopes he had at Old Trafford!

Would Danny have been better served dropping into the Championship?

He was never going to be First Choice striker at Sunderland and I believe SAF nww that. He will be on the bench for EVERY game though and will play a pert in most games this season which will be far more playing time than he would ever had gotten at Man U

but is that what he needs now in his career? Should he not be looking for regular footy?

I believe he will play more than what we expect still. He can operate out wide as a winger or as a striker. All it takes is for one of reid, richardson, malbranque, bent, campbell or asamoah to take a knock or get caught off form and he may sneak his way in. Also, if he takes his chance when it's given to him it's more than likely that he will be given a run in the first team as long as he remains on form or atleast better than his opposing players.

What's he going to learn at Sunderland (aside from how to foul)?

In all seriousness though fcb, playing first team at Sunderland would give him a chance to gain premier league experience and how to handle the physical demands of the league itself. Perhaps could learn from Bent seeing as he has become quite the goalscorer.

If he's good enough he'll play, simples! Gyan strikes me as one of those "looked good in the world cup so let's buy him" type purchases, so it remains to be seen whether he'll be a success or not.
