Fully agree, we are now 20 games undefeated in which Janelt has started most of them, we are scoring goals for fun, the team has a great balance, why would you want to change it. Janelt is the first name on the team sheet imo. Think he could play alongside Norgaard and Dasilva if required, but as it stands Janelt is the man.I don't think anyone is doubting what an exceptional player Norgaard is. It more how Janelt has come into the side and right now is undroppable. In that Newscatle game JDS was the best player on the pitch and Jensen has been excellent for us. Let's not forget how improved Ghoddos has been in recent games. It's a pleasant and good dilemma for TF. I am sure TF will make the right call between now and the end of the season.
In addition, that becomes less noticeable, as each game passes.I think that such has been the significant impact of Janelt he must be up there for player of the season. This is a massive statement given some of the other players we have who have been exceptional ie Dasilva, Henry etc etc, but also Ivan Toney who is likely to break the 30 goal barrier in his first season. Such has been his contribution in replacing another great player out injured, I think he is the difference between us being top 2, not top 6. His part in the way things have unfolded this season cannot be underestimated, to the point where such an influential player like Norgaard has not been missed.
Very interesting interview. I'd not noticed but Thomas' own stats show a 50% win rate!Did we have that already ?
Vitaly Janelt got off to a flying start at Brentford. In a Transfermarkt interview, he talks about his transfer and the Moneyball principle.www.transfermarkt.com
Agree and this lad will only get better and better. I just feel more confident of winning matches when Vitaly is in the team. Was a huge crucial goal today. Also we could finally give him some minutes off and bring on Norgaard.I think Ivan might just pip him.
Certainly best VFM
Really struggled first half as they tried to push him onto his weaker right foot and he ended up getting caught on the ball and going backwards. Second half we didn't mess about and moved it quicker and longer and that enabled him to get further forward. Fantastic goal just when we needed it. Got a bit of a rest too with Norgaard coming on..Just immense in every third of the pitch. Having him and Norgaard is an embarrassment of riches!
The squad is coming together at the right time!

Can you imagine the noise of that goal if fans were in the stadium. Wow.
He is a young lad who plays holding mid really well. Why push to play him in an unfamiliar role when he and CN will need to rotate anyway? We have a good bank.of decent centre midfielders now.He might need some rest over the next couple of weeks but I really hope the plan is to get him into the same team as Christian asap. It is clear he has the engine, desire and ability to play box-to-box and with JDS not fully fit it is the obvious place to play him. Vitaly, Christian and Jensen to start on most occasions with JDS, Ghoddas and Marcondes available off the bench! Very exciting!!!
He said himself in interview he’s more of an 8 than a 6. IMO he can play anywhere in the midfield but with CN DM and Vitaly at no 8 we’ll be unrealHe is a young lad who plays holding mid really well.
