It’s clearly evident that a certain group of posters have decided that Jensen and Marcondes are no good and will take any opportunity to have a go at them. Sunday provided a perfect opportunity but the reality was that for some reason across the team there was a collective brain freeze.
i'll be more than happy for them NOT to give me the opportunity, but that is down to them to make that actually happen ;)

I imagine that, being given the full game, he will be 'rested' for the next one, as a number of the first-choice regulars were substituted during that match. Their coaches will have seen that he can play a full game and work out if he can fit with their tactics. As mentioned earlier, he got many more mentions after Erikson went off and I guess they are looking at 'life without Erikson' for the future.
Pretty much agree with that.

Please give it a rest, I think we're well aware of your feedback on this issue. Jensen was signed for good money 15 months ago, a quality young English player was signed for good money in January, and we've just brought in a German lad who looks like he could be decent. I really don't think you could ask for more - they're trying.

Give a rest because I dont rate Jenson or Marcondes, where have I given stick to Fosu, Baptiste and the young German lad. I think Fosu should start ahead of Canos at the moment and as I said earlier I would have Baptiste ahead of Jenson + Marcondes. I felt the 3 that played against Southampton was currently our best midfield and have said that in other posts. We clearly differ on Jenson & Marcondes.

Ironically, we don't. I just don't feel the need to write about it over and over and over and...

They both have real qualities as well as weaknesses - just like every player.

Playing them together though is something that needs to be done only in certain match where their style can flourish

Exactly, the three Danes were excellent at home v swansea in the 2nd leg for example. TF didn’t have a lot of choice on Sunday when Norgaard went off

He had one of his superb games today albeit against a Coventry side that have him time and space. Now for a bit of consistency Mr Jensen and not make this a 1 in 10 performance.

I hear he did well today
he was excellent. Fantastic range of passes, made space for himself well and intercepted well. No little skill either. Got himself booked with a clumsy challenge which shows he shouldn't really be sat in front of the back four. Hopefully Janelt will be up to speed soon and we can utilise his talents further up the pitch..

He was very good today. When teams don't press it's actually an advantage having someone with his passing ability playing as the pivot. Sheffield Wednesday will press hard though so I'd play Janelt and move Jensen to his normal no8 role.

That's it. We all know what he can do when he's given time and space, like v. Swansea 2nd leg. Unfortunately, those types of games will be fewer and far between this season. He either has to do better with his accuracy under pressure in those games, or needs someone else in midfield to do the donkey work to give him that time and space. Coventry are one of the worst sides we'll play this season.

I don't think Coventry are terrible but like Swansea and QPR and those type of teams that don't really bother too much about pressing and like to dominate, they played into our hands. I am hopeful that in his second season Jensen will be a bit more robust under pressure because the rest is all there, the next two games will be the test.

Best midfielder on show today, well done Jensen. With time and space he showed what he can do. As others have said, a much bigger test against Wednesday.

Sort of game where Jensen shows his class; bees dominant in possession, space in midfield, and opposition defensive shape not very compact. He was able to dictate things at his own pace and spray those trademark balls wide and into the channels. Controlled the game.

He tends to struggle, though, against teams that press our midfield aggressively and/or maintain a tight defensive unit all game. In those games JDS and CN tend to carry him. Despite a strong performance today, I would still like to see Janelt or Baptiste given a go in his place in that type of fixture.

Not a criticism of MJ, just an observation that different players have different strengths.

Fair observation. Definitely needs to be sharper against a press. Be aware, keep it simple and move the ball quicker.

Right, so, my IT skills after a couple (or many more) beers but....... (Yes, that many in I can't get the quote to work :rolleyes: )

@Thomas Bathurst nailed it.

Good Jenson turned up today.

I so want this lad to do so well. Sheffield and Stoke, Matthias, step up and stick a figure in my face.

Agree. Against stronger teams( sh*thousery teams ) I’d like to see Norsgaard and Janelt controlling the midfield with DaSilva just ahead.

Played very well today. However I would not say that was a clumsy challenge. He knew what he was doing and took one for the team. Well done I say.

Absolutely, reminded me of Mourinho from the All or Nothing documentary frustrated at goals conceded by his too nice team not taking yellow cards for stopping counter attacks. Needed to be done.

Cov seemed to think he had Covid as they gave him 15 yards immediately upfield every time he got the ball today. Nevertheless admin could do a Said level highlights video from his best moments today. A pleasure to watch.

I think we could win the division with games to spare, win the EFL cup, get to the FA Cup QFs and even after Jensen and Marcondes end that season having started 40+ games each on 1st July there’ll be people on here saying we should release both as not good enough.

The deeper lying position may well suit an element of his game as he may get more time on the ball and is able to dictate our play.

If only he could tackle as well as he passes.

I really like watching him, but have to admit that he goes missing too often. In the deep role I'd rather have a consistent 7/10 than a mixture of 5s and 9s.

Jensen did pretty well today in an attacking sense from deep and also closed some space well without needing to tackle (as does CN) but I don’t think it’s a long term solution

Showed his talent yesterday but we need to see it more regularly, particularly when he has to fight harder to express it.

Lucky we brought Janelt in for just that role then isn't it?? :sorted:

10 yards outside our own box, facing his own goal with more of the opposition between him and Raya than our own players and he starts an attack with a perfectly weighted backheel :love:

Just remember how great it is to see Brentford players doing things like this next time he gives the ball away or has half an off day. The fans need to be as brave as the players

Two good games on the bounce and the Twitter brigade will be very quiet id imagine.

Very good tonight bar a couple of sloppy passes.

Didn't quite hit the heights of Saturday, in a different role ... but still good and that's two games on the trot now, which he's rarely done before. Looks like he has a little bit more steel about him now too.
