Looks way off the pace compared to Marcondes and Josh. Needs to get on the ball and make things happen. We were better once he went off. Just my opinion.

I just think he’s lacking in games since Christmas and therefore match sharpness. He’s solid if unspectacular at the moment but Marcondes is an easy pick ahead of him as it stands, such has been his brilliant form.

Got a lot of time for him but didn’t think he imposed himself on the game today. Yes, the odd nice flick and trick but as discussed with other Cheshire Bee while we were watching, he doesn’t drive forward and commit defenders like Josh. Tends to take look for the incisive pass whereas Josh seems to be able to have the option to do either. Glad we’ve got him but not in our strongest eleven just now IMHO.

Yeah I don't think it was his best game, looked a bit ineffective in reality. Has been very good for a lot of the season but today wasn't one of them.

Oh and I'm not a fan of the shaved head look lol

Don't understand why TF went with Jensen ahead of Josh today. We look so much more dynamic and combative with Josh in the middle. I like Jensen a lot but he is not in great form at the moment from what I've seen in recent games.

It's a squad game.
Even more so due to the intensive period of games we are now in.
Trust TF to get the use of the squad right. He has done so far....

Even with the break Josh has played far more football than previously in his career. I expect we’re managing his game time to keep him fresh.

Exactly !! Thomas has to assume play offs most likely outcome so he can neither have his first eleven completely knackered by then nor have the very talented “next in line” players totally rusty and not up to match speed. Also even in challenge for automatics we need to ensure that the players picked have a full game in their legs ... it seems already Thomas is managing Christian and Henrik through whatever knocks and niggles they have and Josh, he obviously believes, is most effectively used 1 1/2 and not 2 games per week.

Generally agree but thought he was in the right place at the right time several times.

Josh's first season and the performance staff will be advising that overuse could lead to injury. We need him fit and Matthias is a steady performer atm.

I thought he did well last night considering his lack of involvement since the return. Josh offers something different to MJ, but that's fine. Trust in TF I do.

Thought he was fine first half but second half we needed to keep the ball better and maybe could have done with someone like Baptiste coming on.

Yes but he's not fit.
I know! Just saying it's a shame.. I'm guessing Mokotjo has had an issue too as he hasn't featured at all in recent games. We're lucky we've got so many quality midfielders. Sea change from last couple of seasons!

I was wondering whether Kamo has got himself sorted out for next season so now has an agreement that he is a "last resort".

The physicality that Josh offers could be key in the midfield in the next hopefully 2 remaining games against relegation threatened teams

Pre-contract agreement with QPR. Peter Gilham won’t allow him onto BFC premises.

Proper proper crap today - TF needs to assess whether this bloke starts any of the play off games- I wouldn’t imho

Biggest game in our history (?). Play strongest team.

Jensen has compromising pics of TF.

Abject. I don’t know what his role in the midfield is meant to be and if he does know, he clearly can’t execute it.

There was a time earlier in the season where he was our best player IMO, a few games where I thought "how is this guy not playing at a higher level?". I think I now know the answer, inconsistency. He has better vision than most and can control games on his day, but the last few games haven't been "his day" at all.

Marcondes or Baptiste start against Barnsley, surely.

I do feel we are weaker when he starts. He has a nice touch and can usually pick a pass given time on the ball (not so much in recent games!), but he lacks real presence on the field for me.

Jensen hasn’t regained form since injury / lockdown, but we knew that Emiliano and Baptiste wouldn’t play every minute. Especially given the latter’s injury. Shame really.

For me it's not Jensen, it's that Jensen and Dasilva as a pair doesn't seem to work. I haven't done any great analysis, it just seems that more often than not, when they're together in the team, the midfield doesn't quite click.

Think we’ve had some great performances when they’ve both played together this season.

Yes Jensen cost us the game today every other player was great some of our fans are ****ing embarrassing
I certainly wasn’t saying that. I like him but was just pointing out he hasn’t reached the levels of those he’s come in for.

To be fair everyone looked pretty flat for the first 75 mins or so. We never really got going or got to our normal tempo until we had about 100 forwards on..

I would not have started with him and he did not play well but he was not the reason we lost, so no point dwelling on it. He is a decent player who will come good for us.

Yes he was poor, as was Josh D, but earlier in the season before injury he was very good.

Let's not turn on any of our players, that's not what we're about. Sh1t happens, it's how you respond to it that matters.

tbf, I don't think many are turning on him. Just questioning why an out of form player should be starting ahead of Marcondes, who has been at his most creative since the season resumed and should certainly not be burnt out, as he has been rotated/not playing the full 90. Jensen being out of form wasn't the sole reason for the loss - plenty of others had off-days, but I do feel Marcondes would have given us more in the first 45 and said so before kick off.

Agree...wouldnt have started Jensen myself... Needed someone to get on the ball more in midfield,keep it and pass to a team mate... Jensen has talent, but is too prone to losing it in bad areas, plays too many hopeful balls and flicks and doesn't get stuck in enough imo... especially in games like today.

Jensen seems a bit of an enigma IMO, has moments of great quality, assist for first goal against Barnsley, assist for winner at home to Reading, and assist for first goal at home to qpr. But gets knocked off the ball too easily at times and wants too much time on the ball which you don't get in the championship. Undoubtedly a skillful, technical player, just not sure if he's suited to the fast, physical nature of the championship.

He started slowly as he was getting used to a new league and new country, also he hardly played the previous season (same as Norgaard who took time to settle) was really good in the middle part of the season but then his injury just before lockdown and then getting another in the Fulham game first game back has set him back, he's obviously someone that needs time to get his rhythm and confidence going and while it's not ideal that we're having to use such important games to get him minutes but we need him playing with the amount of games we have had. Couldn't just play JDS and Marcondes every game, Baptise injury hasn't helped here either.

He's a good player that needs time, not people jumping on his back (not saying you are but many have been lately) so we as fans never learn? We've seen many many players (Marcondes being most recent) that take time to settle.

Yeah agree with that. Was always going to take him a while to get going this season, and the middle part of the season was looking good. Just not sure about his physicality in this league, but he's definitely got the ability to do well.

It's his first season, he's had a few injuries, give him a break. If we find ourselves asking the same questions at the end of next season then that may be a different matter.

Fair point. I wasn't having a go at him, just an observation. Think he's got great ability so will see how he gets on next season.

Thought Jensen did very well when he came on, moved the ball quickly and calmly and linked up well with Said.. Still a big part to play in the rest of the season..

I just haven’t seen anything that justifies this typical Brentford fan, copycat criticism. He looked good last night. He is a very good player.
