He just seems very nervous to make a decision. He always takes so long to make a pass even on throw ins. I wonder if the issue is a confidence thing.

The problem for him is that doesn't suit our style. He would probably be more suited to a team that plays with a low tempo and focus on keep it's shape at all costs.

Played much better tonight than Saturday, more often being further up the pitch than Sergi and offering an outlet but still a way off looking a dependable Championship player. Good experience for him but I’ll be glad to see Dalsgaard back as soon as possible.
Yeah to play a few more games before he leaves us. Mads Roerslev is the future.

Needs to have the confidence to hit the cross first time. He is very hesitant and often then the delivery is poor. He’s got In some good positions yesterday with little or no end product.

He's been injured and he's new to the Championship. He will be our right back from the start of next season and he will make mistakes, but he's got a load of potential and I'm looking forward to seeing him develop.

I think he has potential but I sincerely hope we have better than him being our RB at the start of next season.

It's called development, bags of potential which will only be realised if he's given the chance to perform on a regular basis for the first team. If he doesn't grasp his opportunity then....

First off he is a downgrade on Dalsgaard and while he may well develop that could be achieved as a loanee at a League 1 club.He may well come back as a better player as Dallas did after his spell at Northampton.
In the meantime I think we need to start with better .

Time will tell whether he’s up to it but let’s hope so.

We will probably have to take a step back next season as I expect that others will leave us to further their careers elsewhere so he can develop in our first team

If taking a step back means we are downgrading the quality of our team then maybe ? I hope the lad makes the grade & I guess we shall see.

We still have the Play Offs! If we are in with the Big Boys next season then I doubt Mads will play, Championship he will be in with a very good chance.

Tbh I think it is more likely that we will be in the Championship next season, but as you say we still have the playoffs to enjoy

He had an uncanny knack of not managing to find a single player in red and white last night. Quite an achievement. 100% factual stat.... :sneakoff:

Weird. Don’t recognise the player that some are taking about from the team last night. Thought he was one of the big positives personally. Seems able to beat the full back and get space for a cross with ease and crossing is generally very good. Would get more ‘end product’ perhaps if there was more than just Toney in the box to get on the end of them..

Weird, I don't recognise anyone of that description playing for Brentford last night.

He'll be 22 at the start of next season, I wouldn't say that he's particularly young in fairness.

If I'm being honest he doesn't (on his limited showings) looks like he'd be upto starting for a team pushing for promotion from the championship, missing so long through injury seems to have hit him particularly hard.

Guess you were too busy looking out for the crap stuff! 😉

As it would anyone who's been out injured for that length of time, but this chap has played so few first team games. He needs a real run in the team and he should get that opportunity next season if not before.

We sign players to develop them and raise their value. Some on here fail to understand and think any player who pulls on a shirt should be an instant success. That is not going to happen and some won’t reach the levels hope for. This young man has developed during his time at Brentford despite suffering injury. His performance in the last game showed this and I believe he will continue to improve with regular game time plus his confidence and decision making will improve.

If he had not been injured I am sure that this would have been the season where he would have taken over from Henrik. Indeed it looked as if that was the purpose of HD extending in the Summer for one more season.

His best performance in a Bees shirt. Played really well and this system suited him to the ground.

Great performance today, two fantastic crosses for the first half goals.

Wing back gave him the freedom to get forward... and his forward play was excellent, particularly in the first half with his ability to read the game and pass to a player in the box without just wellying it across.

No surprise that when we get more bodies in the box, Mads gets a couple of assists. He's really very good at getting into positions to cross and putting balls into dangerous areas.. Great block on the line first half too..
