Put in a good performance down the middle and scored a goal which should help with his confidence, We all know there is a good player there as shown last season.

Let me be the first to say well done Bryan. Should’ve had one more himself and maybe another assist with better decision making. But much much better.
Exactly as above. And typical Bryan really. The big thing to take away is forget the two moments of frustration which you correctly mention; forget the bad touches and poor decisions, because he never hides and he nearly always comes up with a key contribution. Tonight, this happened to be a goal and an assist. Not bad for someone out of form.

Well played BM. Means a lot to get on the score sheet again and get your confidence back :cool:

Considering how much he’s played on the right.

He looked good through the middle and on the left today.

Because we have one of the best conditioning and fitness teams in the league.

If he wasnt fit he wouldnt be playing.
No cos we've got a queue of alternatives lined up so there would be absolutely no need.

Looked far better central. Remains to be seen if he can replicate that form in a wide position as Toney has the central shirt. I think he will start ahead of Fosu who was dis appointing. .

... on the left, on the right, in the middle.
In the first half, there was one occasion (there may have been more that I didn't spot) when he was in the centre and received the ball, with his back to the defender (and goal) and he executed a great turn to his left (i.e. towards our right). He'd have got away too, except he was fouled. When he's on the right, near the touchline, he very rarely has enough space to turn that way and is forced to go inside, which is what his markers expect and want. In that respect, he was much more of a handful, in the middle.

That makes no sense. Im talking about his lack of fitness and the weird long covid fascination.

He's had an injury recently which he's played through because we have fewer options than of late, but I totally understand why we are operating on a slimmed down squad.

With Rico now out and Henrik being the man to push forward this may ultimately help Bryan for the next several weeks.

He did look a bit lonely at times this season, so with Henrik up and helping out, this may be the turn in form...

Wasn't he played more centrally at Troyes, seem to remember his youtube clips had him picking up the ball on the turn thru the middle?

Bluejaybee mentioned the greater freedom that he seemed to enjoy in this position......reminded me a bit of Pukki in that his game is built in drifting across the line and in between the pockets of space.....thus linking with Cantwell, etc much like BM did with Ghoddos for the 2nd goal.

Bryan seems happiest when it's instinctive around the 6 yd box like his reaction for his header and the volley against Swansea in the PO 2nd leg.

He can be our 'Mbukki' if Ivan's out which I feel is a better alternative than the option of Forss at the mo.

I actually thought for most of the game he was having a stinker. Nearly all his crosses just cannoned off the nearest defender. Couple of times he had the ball on the break and it just felt inevitable that it would come to nothing. Then was like someone flicked a switch. Maybe was the introduction on Jenson, that seemed to change the game. He's been an enigma for the past 12 months.

Jensen's introduction was the spark, for Bryan and the rest of the team.

Glad to see him putting the effects of long Covid behind him must be feeling much better about things after his last two performances :fishing:
I thought there was a covid reaction second half where he didn't close down the full back so quickly but generally, it was mainly non covid today.

Was having a mare up until the we got back in the game then he stepped it up. Lovely header for the winner. I like him centrally as he has the strength to hold players off.

Well done Bryan.

Helps him having some support. When Rico plays he’s encouraged to go forward which means HD stays back to make a back 3, thus leaving BM on his own.
Now the plan is to keep MBS back and allow HD to roam, I think we’ll see more from BM. It’s all coming together 😉

went around the full back to the byline a couple of times second half and caused a lot of problems. Looked a lot more confident on his right foot.. Get that right and he'll be a nightmare to mark..

Yeah I noticed that too - will make him much harder to play against if the fullback is kept guessing which way he is going to go.

Ermmm.....Pass ?
So, according to the interview on the OS, Covid is to blame for Bryan's indifferent form. Kind of.

I forgot what this isolation must be like for the young players from overseas. For Bryan there is no other French speaker now is there? I really started to see how tough it can be for these young guys, its tough enough when you are from the UK but for them the loneliness must be an issue.
