That chest back into the path of JDS for the second. The way he picks himself up off the floor when the ball is in midfield and then breaks into their box, finding space so he's ready to follow-up anything knocked out by their keeper. This is a class act, a really really top class striker. Ivan the Terrible if you're up against him.

Peterboroughs owner said on Twitter that people thought he was insane to demand £10m for Toney. He could be worth £130m to the club next season.

Or "Ivan the Terribly Good" if you're on his team.
Yep, he is so impressive, whisper it but I think he might even be better than Ollie who was even better than Maupay who was even better than Gray who was even better than Hogan etc...

I honestly think you're right.

And after last season, I really didn't think I'd be posting that for a long while, Ivan or anyone else.

MacAnthony also said that Scott Parker wanted him this season... We're probably quite fortunate a few clubs were a bit snobby about signing someone from League One.

A £6-8m outlay for a Prem team would be nothing! Imagine if Palace or West Ham etc had taken that punt...

Even better, Tony Khan weighed in to say it was him who wanted Toney, not Parker, but they couldn’t afford him despite promotion because they needed defenders. After spaffing £10m on Knockaert!

Doesn’t really do very much but ends up getting a goal and 2 assists.

If that doesn’t speak volumes of the man then I don’t know what does. Wait until he’s back on form!

It is my considered opinion that Ivan Benjamin Elijah Toney is a considerably better than average football player. Also seems like a good person too. A credit to our club in every way.

The complete centre forward.
Only a couple of injuries away from a call up to the England squad, and if he was playing in the Premier League he would be getting a call up.

Sorry, but much as I admire IT, it would surely take more than that for a call-up.

Ivan has made the step-up from League One without even noticing it, and I have no doubt he could do the same again to the Prem.

But international football - at least against the stronger teams - is a step-up again.

Besides which, England have more than 2 or 3 top quality strikers to choose from - I'd say there's half a dozen who are ahead of Ivan in Southgate's thinking.

But give him a season in the top flight.... :sorted:

Now 125/1 to be part of the Euro 2021 squad! Although Rhian Brewster is 100/1 - no idea how that works!

Without doubt in my mind one of the best players to pull on the shirt. He told us at the outset what he was about and his ambitions, and he has backed that up and some with his performances. I also have no doubt that he will be successful in the prem, I just hope its with us. If we go up he could be 12-18 months away from playing for England, he is that good imo. Nothing against Ollie and he was good, this guy is on another level.

I just hope we do go up this year, if not I’m pretty sure we will lose him. And this time it would be impossible to replace with better, would it? 🤔😂

To reciprocate to the table posted on the Norwich Forum of how the Championship would look without IT I though I would counter that with what the table would look like if EVERY OTHER PLAYER was excluded. :unsure:. I think this demonstrates quite well how important EVERY OTHER PLAYER is to the other teams.

Obviously with 18 games to go and only 34 points clear we would not be mathematically home and hosed yet but since most remaining games between competitors are likely to end 0-0 I think we could be fairly confident of a successful conclusion to the campaign (even if IT failed to score again).

** Hopefully this is taken in the spirit in which it is intended and shows the ridiculousness of the original Norwich Table and the total futility of such an exercise.

11 draws against no opposition. You don't want to go up Brentford!

I’d give Toney a rocket for failing to net in those games.

With odds like those, the bookies are basically saying to fans: "Give us money, cos we don't expect to have to give any of it back".

And since Brentford (Peterborough) have fewer fans than Sheff U (Liverpool), they have to work harder to get their hands on Toney money than Brewster's millions.

(And yes, I am immoderately proud of my little pun)

How many goals has Ivan scored this season? It says just 23 on the BFC 20/21 wiki site. However if you add up the goals by game on that site it comes to 24. Something's wrong.

What is often forgotten is that maybe strikers excel at our club because of the coaching they receive. Let's be honest Ivan's preference pre-season was Celtic but deep down he will now admit it he made the right choice to sign for us. Ivan just looks right now as a player that is not enjoying his football but loving his time at Brentford.

For many of us we haven't seen him play 'live' and as @Brentford Bob previously mentioned getting promotion will almost certainly mean one more year of Raya, Rico, Josh and Toney and for us as fan meaning we can see them at the fortress that is LR.

Its werid as i still dont think we get him involved in games enough.

Hes bagging goals off the few chances he has which is a huge credit.

Reminds me of a modern day Jimmy Greaves, just so lethal. But he is also really aware of the players around him as his 9 assists confirm, something that maybe JG was not so well known for.

As @Thomas Bathurst said on Twitter. The original tweet showed that we could have played all season with 10 players and still not been in the relegation places!

I'm mildly surprised after all the kerfuffle about taking the knee that nobody (until now) has commented on Ivan standing doing the Black Power salute while everyone else has taken the knee for the past few matches.

Feel free to shout me down but we don't seem to create many chances for Toney each game he just puts the overwhelming number of chances he get into the back of the net. Was it Coventry at home when he missed a couple of sitters? I can't recall many other glaring misses since...
It's the quality of the chances we create for him that counts, not the number of chances.

Difficult game for Ivan today. In the end I was pleased the game ended without him either getting injured or picking up a red.

Fortunate to get away with the kick on the Barnsley player in the 2nd half...

Do you mean the one where he picked up the yellow? Thought that was borderline too to be honest- the other way round and I’m calling for a red there. He can mix it when he needs to which is part of his game that makes him as good as he is but thought that was in danger of spilling over today with frustration.

No. Earlier in the 2nd half, when Barnsley were awarded a free kick close to the right hand touchline. IT steamed in and kicked their player.

Opposition managers have told their centre backs to take it in turns to grapple with him until the ref puts a stop to it.The refs don’t. Ivan gets more and more frustrated, which is 100% understandable, but entirely counter-productive. TF needs a Plan B for the tactic. You watch on Wednesday, I guarantee the first bout of WWE occurs by minute three...

Gets kicked, pushed and pulled from first to last minute every game, I’m not surprised he gets so frustrated.
