love the story that Frank told that Mbuemo wanted to make a speech to the team before the game.. As a 20 yr old who's been in england less than a year that's incredible... Just shows how good our recruitment now is in getting the right type of people in.... So pleased for him he got that goal....
Jansson suggests that it was a brilliant speech too...it certainly did the job! If he wants to give a similar speech on Tuesday fair play!

Does MB ever do the dressing room before a game to give a speech? I’m sure he’d feel that was inappropriate in the regular season...however he’s not really an us and them chairman.

there's been a fair few absent since the 'fail to fail' thread appeared..
....now is not a time for recriminations or splitting...leave that to the popular front......i reckon voices reverse psychology is the reason we're at wembley....he's just far too shy to come on here and tell us that.

Am assuming GP200 has warn out his ‘full stop’ key and is awaiting a replacement.
I crept into his house and stole it off of his keyboard. :cool: He’s in a right state. lol

Pretty sure mr b gave a speech before the Yeovil game at Wembley .....

He was hideously awful tonight and has looked spent for weeks but as said above, he’s had a remarkable debut season and will be much the stronger for it next season.

My word, what a player we have here. Mostly on one foot, which seemed more noticeable since the lockdown. Just how good will he be by the end of next season? Him and Canos jostling for position. It's what we need in every position.

Totally agree. Not sure what changed for Bryan but he has been so ineffective since the resumption of the league. Was it having covid? Tiredness at the end of his first season? I'm not sure but I do know that we should have given someone else a chance in the last few games as (apart from the goal against Swansea) he has been so ineffective. Uncharacteristically poor ball control, failing to beat his man, inability to get the ball to a teammate. I hope he can have a rest and come back fresh and ready to go again as the player we have all see he has the ability to be.

I don't believe he had Covid-19, just one positive test for the virus. A 20-year-old who played more games than anticipated due to Sergi's injury; he will more likely have suffered from mental exhaustion.

From the NHS: "Positive test result. A positive result means you had coronavirus when the test was done." A lot remains to be learned about the virus, so it could have affected him even in the absence of clear symptoms, as could the strain of a long season. I still wish he'd stayed on the pitch longer last night as I think he always has it in him to grab a goal, even when below his best.

Needs a rest. Brentford is the best place for his development for at least another year or two. He has a great attitude and will own this league next season.

I wonder if we may try to convert him like we did Watkins up front? He's strong, good feet, fast, good positioning, possibly needs more aerial work.

Hope he has a really great rest, reflecting on a cracking first season in English football!

Great debut season. Couldn't find the heights of pre-lockdown on the resumption of football. Whether that was virus related, mental strength etc who knows. The 3 week rest will do him good, he can collect his thoughts, recharge the batteries and hopefully go again on 12th September.

On another day he would of scored 2 goals coming in on far post. Hector was very fortunate on one that he got the finest of touches on having lost Mbeumo

IMO his illness has affected him. He looks blown out.

massively, not the same since he's been back. not digging him out, but he has struggled with the basics, control and passing. was surprised to see him start stoke and the 4 after it.
he needs a good rest and come back fresh, he's had a terrific first season with us.

There are a lot of subtle effects/symptoms of coronavirus, (I'm speaking from my experience here), such as physical and mental fatigue. They're not "obvious", in that you don't realise until you try doing something that requires a combination of physical and mental agility. The effect isn't necessarily huge, but it's enough to make a difference.

Just a hunch, but I could see him moving into the central striker role when/if Watkins moves on.
He can’t win headers or hold the ball up anywhere near how Watkins can.

Heading ability is not the be-all and end-all of the central striker's role. For what it's worth, at least one of Mbuemo's 16 goals (only one fewer than Said Benrahma) was a firmly planted header just inside the post. BM's shot accuracy, goal conversion and minutes-per-goal ratings were superior to SB's, and he provided only two fewer assists than SB.

No one foresaw Watkins' runaway success as a number nine; it's not too much of a stretch to suggest that Mbuemo could also make the switch, though presenting different qualities.

Maupay wasn't the best at winning headers either and he did ok as our striker.

I think it's much easier to get away with being one footed if you are cutting in onto your favoured side as you have lots of central space to cut into and can create overlaps for a full back on the wing. A lone striker needs to have more competency on his weaker foot than Bryan does currently. It would also negate his biggest strength which is his ability to drift unnoticed into goalscoring positions from wide. That's my view anyway.

Ollie couldn't do it twelve months ago. Amazing what good coaching and hard work can achieve.

I’m not talking about goal scoring headers, it’s the ‘out ball’ when highly pressed. Ollie has been crucial in winning the longer ball - often directing it to a nearby team mate.

He did look much bulkier when the season started as well. Uses his body really well now he has the muscle msss.

Definitely will end up a central striker for me. Often did nothing spectacular in matches but the potential as witnessed by that burst of pace that set up a goal at Hull or the times he scored unspectacular goals just by calmly putting the ball where the goalkeeper wasn't show his incredible potential. I always hoped Rico might be the player who wouldn't have to be sold on to play in the Prem because he achieved it with us but wouldn't be surprised if it's BM.

so what's the deal with players going abroad for international games? Assuming they don't have to quarantine when they come back?

No, I believe all the International matches are treated as bubbles. However I can see this going wrong, hopefully not with the 7 bubbles our players will be involved in

Looking at the Leicester City Fans forum site (FoxesTalk) tonight, it appears he's now on their radar as well, it does not surprise me, hope its just speculative talk and nothing else.

Bryan got another 20 minutes for France in their 2-1 win over Azerbaïdjan in the Euro 2021 U21 Qualifiers, coming on as a sub again.

Am very much looking forward to Mbuemo whipping in those fantastic crosses of his for Toney to latch onto this season....
