Wasn't the extension only to January?
No.

Brentford’s Danish international defender Henrik Dalsgaard has signed a new contract. The 30-year-old record breaker put pen to paper on a new deal today, Friday 29 November. The contract – a one-year extension – is set to run until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Dalsgaard will need to be rotated a few times, most of the team will with an additional 5 midweek games and a month shorter season. With a bit more work on his defensive side Mads should be able to slot in pretty well as the season goes on.

He struggled playing 3 games a week.. :shrug:
Well he best do more training. Premiership clubs are paying millions for players older than Dalsgaard. That is not to say that Rasmussen Rosslev should not be eased in this coming season, as potentially he has the ability to take over next season (21/22) if not before.

Add in International weekends too.

None of whom play as many league games. 46 league games as well as international games is too much to expect someone play if we want them at their best for 90% of them.

Highlight all the post! "That is not to say that Roerslev Rasmussen should not be eased in this coming season." My point is Dalsgaard will be quite fit this coming season and does not have to be treated as if he was on his last legs. He is possibly at the very peak of his career, and we certainly do not have to nurse him through the coming season. When he leaves us he will not retire but go on to play high level football for some other team. Who knows that come next June he may fancy a few games in the Premier League.

We don't want players who "can do a job", we need specialists for each position. We need to get off to a good start.

It’s in these sort of situations where we might consider a loan to christmas I’d imagine? Unless we firm up interest in Ng?

100% annoys me these days when people think "could do a job" is sufficient for our playing staff

Definitely a short term deal for someone. Dalsgaard who I rate very highly will still need resting. In a compact fixture list. Someone even mentioned a short term deal for Josh Clarke? Cheap option for a short term gap.

This seems like a good opportunity to upgrade in this position and sign our next first choice right back. Dalsgaard is league average at best and in his thirties and Roerslev even when fit is very raw.

If “could do a job” is too low a standard then a short term contract for a player released because he isn’t deemed up to doing a job for us would be a bad move. Can’t fault Clarke’s effort and some good performances a few years ago but not even a temporary fix. Way below the standard of Odubajo and we sent him on his way with thanks.

Think you are being a little harsh on your judgement of Dalsgaard. Thought he had more than a decent season and could easily complete another campaign at this level. He has the added bonus of being able to play CB which is very useful, and allows Mads the time to develop further. Each case should be judged on its own merits but there is nothing wrong if you if you have some players who continue to play in their thirties, bringing much needed experience to a very young team.

I agree he had a good season and is absolutely fine, and I would definitely keep him around for his experience. Just being greedy I think we could do better. None of our back four are really great at passing or carrying the ball into midfield and I think it's an option that could help us.

Way off full training based on his Instagram. Just started light work such as walking on a treadmill I think.
I can’t remember what did he do? Was it a broken metatarsal or something like that? Fosu could well get a few more run outs at right back

If he's only doing very light steps now then I'd argue that November would definitely be too soon. He needs a few weeks after returning to fitness, and it sounds like he's a way off that yet.

Really think we should have signed a RB this window to fill in as backup until January and then sell Dalsgaard then with Mads as no 2.
