Nice analogy from a mate of mine yesterday..... Watching JDS at times is like watching a junior school match where there’s this one huge lad who’s clearly head and shoulders above everyone, and all the little kids just bounce off him.

He‘s matured so much in such a short space of time. We need to enjoy him while we can.

Pure class. Hybrid of Patrick Vieira and Gunter Netzer. Power, directness, acceleration, pace and grace.
Patrick Vieira is the one! I have said it before, and will again, IMO our style of play over the past few seasons is reminiscent of Arsenal in the early days of Wegner. Patrick Vieira was a key player for them, and Josh is fast becoming ours. A very powerful, strong, but highly skilled box to box midfielder who will get us promoted.

.............please state his unique qualities...............

He plays in midfield, but tactically versatile - - at times even slips into left back to receive the ball, allowing Henry to push on. Drives forward and beats players with ease and strength; creates key chances; excellent range of passing; can score long range; AND can use both feet adeptly.

There’s no player like him in this league.

Unique.

If his development continues on the current trajectory I have no doubt he will be a premiership player next season with us or somewhere else. I just love those driving runs through the middle, you just don't see that often in a player these days.

Didn’t look best pleased at being taken off. Tried to walk straight past TF and BR.
Wrong decision to bring him off but I suppose this will be the norm due to the schedule - your best players can’t play every minute of every game unfortunately.

Yep, such a shame he had to go off, which must be due to the schedule. Lost our drive in midfield and invited them on to us. He’s having a tremendous start to the season.

How is Jensen getting any criticism tonight?

Playing some great football, physical, great technique and the ability to ghost past players. Another transfer target in January.

JDS is quality but Jensen was great tonight, anyone could see that. The subs and shuffle weakened us.

Thought Jensen had a decent game but not sure it was a great performance from him and then moving him into the role JDS was playing was a definite downgrade.

It seemed to me that he reached a point where he was unable to move, I thought initially he'd picked up an injury but I think it was just he was knackered.

Silva was running it for us tonight. It must be a knock stopping him from getting full 90s

So he did the full 90 today against an inferior team. Could easily have pulled him off today when 2-0 up if the idea is to keep him fresh. Makes the decision to take him off after an hour against Norwich even more strange if it was down to fatigue/managing his minutes.

Not really, managing minutes is so he can play all day today and provide rest for others. It only works if you do it for every player

Not if his stats showed him as being the midfielder most at risk of a fatigue related injury going into the Naarwich game but in this one it was Marcondes most at risk :fishing:

Don't get it. If you're TF and you have a choice to play him the full 90 against either Norwich or Luton, which game are you more likely to choose if you want maximum points from both games?

That isn't how it works. Before the Norwich game he would have been aware that pushing him risks injury. By managing his game time and training activity he would have been aware that he could manage a full 90 today or perhaps that others were in more need of a rest

I assume the data you are looking at from the tools that monitor his physical condition before and during the game ( that the Sports Therapists are looking at) don’t answer your question?

Maybe Luton weren't causing him to break a sweat so it wasn't necessary to take him off.

You have to look a his condition before the Norwich game too.

I’m getting a bit worried about minutes for a lot of our players, but Da Silva’s inparticular. He’s one of the most important players for us, and he’s clocking 100km in matches alone each month (maybe half that on top in training ?). It’s hard to be peak performance with his relentless schedule with club and country, and an injury risk with his explosive play.

I have the feeling he might be rested at some point for the medium-long term view. Tricky one, because we are far worse without him.

Maybe reduce his training workload is an option, that may already be happening

He’s pretty special isn’t he! Premiership bound & playing for England soon surely as he has it all for a midfielder

Was he injured at HT or just a precaution? Looked to be limping after that tackle first half..

He's taken quite a battering in the last couple of games, so I hope it was just precautionary and he'll be OK on Friday.

He has been targeted last two games by Wycombe and Barnsley and has been given no protection.
Hopefully just a boot and no more.
