Kuszczak: Watford Is My Team Now

After joining Watford on loan until the end of the season, Tomasz Kuszczak has revealed he hopes he can get playing time so he can be considered for the Euros.

“I really miss the feeling of a matchday when you’re involved,” Kuszczak told Watford’s official website. “Where Watford were in the Championship table never crossed my mind. I knew this to be a good club and I didn’t have to think long at all about coming down here. Football is my passion, not just a job. That’s why I’m here. Watford is my club, my team now. This seems like a club with young players and young staff taking their work seriously. Let’s see how much I can help in my time here. I want to have a chance of being involved in the Euros in my home country this summer, so I need to be out there playing so everyone can see I’m fighting fit and still very hungry. I’m grateful to Watford for the chance and hopefully this can benefit both sides.”

    Fair comments. He was never going to get the opportunities at United, so him leaving was inevitable… Just hope he doesn’t start bad mouthing Sir Alex and the club.

  2. bengoshi says:

    He has no chance to play for Poland starting 11. Wojciech Szczesny is a mile better than him. Kuszczak’s only chance is Szczesny’s injury.
    Always will remember shaky performances of Tomasz for us. A little better than Foster but that’s it.

    If there is nothing good to be said , say nothing .

    Over 850 players have adorned our famous jersey since its inception and Kuszczak is one of them. How many of us can claim that. Respect and good luck at Watford. Hope you make the Euros.

    He always reminded me of a cabbage patch kid.. and sometimes displayed the goalkeeping prowess of one

    Thank God for that.

  9. CedarsDevil says:

    Good luck to the lad…..

    On another topic Nasri has been saying that Arsenal should learn from City….!!! Learn what exactly Mr Nasri? Learn how to pay 24m for a flop that hardly gets a kick?

    Fair comments from him. Was never going to be good enough but never heard too many complaints from him. I think he is PL quality though.

    I wish him good luck and hope he’ll get the game time he deserves.

  11. CedarsDevil says:

    By the way does anyone know why the bitters get to play Porto tonight and not tomorrow? This will of course give them the chance to play the chicken nuggets on Saturday instead of Sunday….

    Hint of an advantage if you ask me, or I may just be paranoid….

    Where is smartalex by the way?

  12. CedarsDevil says:

    Ah, ignore my last post re the bitters…. Just realized that you cannot have both teams from the same city playing in the same evening….

  13. CedarsDevil says:

    Meant remembered not realized! What is wrong Cedars? Not sure me lord but I may be going bonkers

  14. Booch says:

    Thanks god for that

  15. zelh says:

    In other news Adnan Januzaj has signed professional terms with United.
    fantastic prospect with Daehli.

  16. TallestRED says:

  17. @samriley9 says:

    Cedars not had his weetabix ;)

  18. Cadelin says:

    Who he Zelh ??
    Any u-tube links ??

  19. Costas says:

    This should have happened at the start of the season, but better late than never, Good luck Tom.

  20. @notcr9 says:

    I can only imagine the pressure you must feel being a goalkeeper at united. So much expectation, and any minor (or major) goalkeeping error is magnified and scrutinised so much. It’s no wonder that a string of really good keepers fail to live up to expectation. But, when you’ve had the big Dane, and Van Der Sar as benchmarks, then there is a lot to live up to. I really hope De Gea can settle down and nail the number 1 spot, because I really like him, and think he has absolutley bags of potential.

    i have it on good authority, that CheddarsDevil is solely a Shredded wheat man.

  22. YorYor says:

    I would suspect when Arsenal were relying on Fabianski, they’d have kissed the ground just to have Kuszczak instead. I still believe that had he been given a good run in the team, he’d have done better and might have become a long term 2nd choice, but unfortunately there was the evergreen VDS in front of him. I don’t blame him nor the club, it’s a time and space thing, just too bad for him. I have fonder memories of him than Mark Bosnich!
    Whatever it is, I don’t think it was right for some to have said “good riddance” when he left on loan. The ones who were truly good riddance were the twats known as Heinze and Tevez.

  23. Redbilly says:

    Cedars 09:38- yes exactly what can arsenal learn. Maybe how a merc who us happy as a sub can brown nose his manager. Cunt first class. More so as he is do talented and decided to prostitute his talents.
