isn't that more like a back two and a half?
Looks like a back 3 to me Sorensen in the centre Ajer one the right Henry in the left we need pace at this level or we will keep conceding Henry is fastest defender.

Henry would be too small to play CB in an U16 game!

The days of 6 ft 6 cart horses at the back is over when do you see in this league big old fashioned centre forwards
I No who I would prefer marking say a mane or Salah out of Pontus or Henry.Some of the best centre backs in the world have been similar height puyol cannavaro both 5ft 9

Looks better every game very comfortable at this level.
Think he should replace Pontus as he is to slow and we keep getting exsposed for pace and costing us goals with Thomas wanting us to play a high line we must have pace or we will keep getting turned.
If we must play a back 3 possibly Ajer Sorensen Henry

I think Mads is slower than Pontus.

I'd say he is pushing EP for a starting place on the left hand side. He is one cool customer, seems to have no nerves.
I have been critical of him in the past for being hesitant & unwilling to get forward but last night was evidence that his confidence is growing game by game & he broke forward when able too & more importantly looked comfortable doing it. I think our handling of him firstly loaning him out & then slowly developing him to realise his potential is what makes us unique with the 'B'team ethos.

I was totally wrong about him. As his current rate of progress, he’s going to attract quite a lot of PL attention I would think.

Weird. Pontus did a fine job against them both at BCS. Henry also, as WB, did an excellent job chasing back to beat Salah to a long through ball.

Come on. Bar Southampton what did you honestly expect against teams like Liverpool and Utd. Rico at CB isn’t the answer.
Not the long term answer but in the short term could bring some much needed pace to our back 3

Shouldn’t be rested on Sat, should be Pontus being dropped but that won’t happen.
Agree. As long as 2/3 of Pontus, Noorgard, Toney (if he’s at the races) play I think we’re covered for leaders on the pitch. No less though and hopefully Man U is a springboard for Toney

How many goals have we scored from his (and others) long throws?

Is it just the one, Arsenal?

Thought MBS was our best defender yesterday to be honest. Looked so composed on the ball and was not afraid to get stuck in.

I've liked him for a while and he's looking ready for an extended run starting at either the left or middle CB position.

At 23 he's still at least 2-3 years from peak and could easily go on (with Ajer) to be the core of our defence for several years. He's comfortable on the ball, happy to carry it out and although he needs to work on his accuracy he has all the attributes of a modern CB. He's also got the best long throw in the squad - which is a bonus.

I didn't see him a lot for the B team but I got the impression from someone that he was quite vocal and a leader on the pitch. Is that the case or am I imagining it?

There was a game earlier in the season, can't recall which, when he gave Pontus a real shouting and pointing for being out of position!

Pinnock and Jansson have been a great pairing since 19/20. Both are obvisouly contracted through beyond this season.

But it's great to see Mads Bech and Ajer waiting in the wings, both several years younger and performing to an excellent standard at the very top level. A future partnership with great potential.

I do think that one day moving to a 4-3-3 with Ajer and Mads Bech at the back would be a quality, reliable long term pairing... if we were going to go to 4 at the back.

I think he is deceptively fast. Not many get away from him and his speed of reaction gives him time. Potential with speed of thought will help as well. Only issue for me is I would like him in the box more. He can't though as he is.lobbing them in!

What was Sorensen's song last night? Couldn't make it out 🐝
(tune of Is this the way to Amarillo)

Tra la la la la la lala Mads Bech
Tra la la la la la lala Mads Bech
Tra la la la la la lala Mads Bech Sorenson

PS song makers, it'd be good to have atleast one "new song" that isn't 50 years old please? TIA

Love this. Thanks for posting. That puts the anti long throwers in their place 😂😂👍
The long throw is a useful weapon, but I think we use them too often. I would reckon that around 80% of the throws within 20 metres of the goal line are long.

Yes agreed. It can be effective as we've seen against both Arsenal and Man Ure but we need to vary it from time to time.

I think he has shown enough to indicate that his inclusion would benefit the team. As others have pointed out, our aimless clearances are a major problem. Mads Bech's distribution may not be perfect, but it's better than that offered by Pontus and Ethan in recent games. Plus he is tigerish, which is what we will need -- less standing off players.

I know this has probably been answered before, but can anyone tell me why Mads Bech Sorensen is now called Mads Bech?

Cheaper on the shirt?

... I'm sure one of our Danish contributors will give you the explanation for their construction of names but it's consistent with Mads Roerslev.

Now that we've gone from three Mads' in the squad to two, Roeslev and Bech have dropped their third names as a show of respect. It's a common Danish tradition.

Is is the same as Sergi Canós Tenés?

E.g there is a first/second paternal/maternal surname?

Like him a lot but as I have said a few times before, I don’t think he’s suited to playing as a wide centre back in a three.

Great prospect as an option on the left side of a pairing in a back four, or perhaps in that central role in a three (currently occupied by Jansson).

He had a bad game. When he does it tends to show a bit more for whatever reason. He’s generally been great recently
