Hand up l think we need to rest him. He has been delivering very average performances and we have options to put in as wide players.I get the stats but the eyes have it. I recall MacEachran fans using stats to big him up.l still feel he hasn't been the same since testing positive. Maybe a case of long covid?
Three assists and one goal would for McEachran be a top top season. It is Bryan’s haul over 5 games where he’s been a bit below par.

Agree.

Which is not to say he's playing badly - he isn't - but as I see it, he's not playing quite so well as he generally did last season.

Either way, there's nothing to suggest anything serious or long term, so even though I personally would rest him for a bit, I'm happy to leave that call to TF.

Obviously.

The talent is still there for sure but it is a bit of a struggle for the youngster at the moment, maybe post-covid related maybe not. I think give either Fosu or Ghoddas a young and give him a bit of a break. He will come back better and stronger for it.

He's that bit more of a marked man now after last season, v quickly had 2 or 3 on him whenever he got the ball v Coventry. That'll be the norm from now on unless we create more of a threat from the other side.

He doesn't benefit from Henry's over lapping runs on his side either so the right side will always look poorer in comparison to the left imo.

Is Dalsgaard not getting forward quite as much, too? He was initially very well served from that direction. Mbeumo is very adaptable, but the players haven’t quite got all the options from the wings worked out.

He hasn't been scoring goals, no more to it than that. Everything else is pretty much the same. New front three, taking a bit longer to get it going.
He was always a bit weak in the tackle, never really competed for headers and made the odd bad decision.

Last season he would be very quiet for 40 mins and you would forget he was there and then bang, he scores.

There is nothing wrong with him, no "long covid" (he was asymptomatic) and no loss of a yard of pace.

Interesting that the consensus on here is that he is putting in average performances for whatever reason. But there are those who say persist with him and others who think he needs resting.Given what we want to achieve and his performance level, I cant see any justification for not giving Fosu a go. Bryan has been off it for a long time.Would Sergi still be starting with the same performance level?

That situation may well be sorted once the pacey Mads Roerslev regains full fitness.

Hear what you say but 3 assists and 1 goal in 5 games is not a bad return for a player not in form?

Given the relentless spell of games coming up, I'm sure Fosu, Ghoddos and even Kev will be rotated into the wide attacking positions.

Fosu will get a chance on the left this week. He seems to have grown in stature though from not being in the team. From what I've seen of him so far he's not going to provide the same level of assists and goals as even the current 'under the weather' Mbuemo. Personally just think Bryan needs games and to get used to interacting as part of the new front three.

Interesting point someone made earlier re Dalsgaard not getting forward as much. Suspect that's deliberate due to a) the issues we've had down the right side defensively with him and Pontus, and b) to save his legs due to lack of cover until Roerslev's back..

I think that's a bit chicken and egg to be honest. Dalsgaard is capable of getting forward but I think is somewhat reticent to commit as he's not 100% that Bryan will cover him. Henry and Canos seem to be a bit more comfortable.

The Dalsgaard thing is very striking. As I remember it, for the first part of last season Dalsgaard was always the more attacking full back, and the change to Henry being the one to bomb forward constantly happened overnight - presumably as a deliberate tactical choice.

Interesting theory as the common belief has been Henrik's fitness/number of games are what led to this. I wonder if gaining confidence that Pinnock didn't need additional cover has led to what you describe?

Played well but thought he should have scored with that effort just before they equalised. Did everything right except get it on target.

best game for a while last night
Agreed may also be down to our setup with Ghoddos as an additional play maker ?? Does anyone know why he went off and what injury was? As was so early in second half must have reported a niggle at half time and they asked him to see how went in second half ?

Last year he was the understated of the three, but I half put that down to the other two being more attention grabbing due to the goals and the tricks. I think he's just very...nonchalant, really good without his style shouting about it. His second shot was some effort though! If that had flown in it would have been lovely!

Injury was a precautionary withdrawal, but the commentators did note that he had an icepack on the back of his leg where his hamstring was. Maybe a slight tweak so they didn't want to risk it.
