He needs to score occasionally…even occasionally would be better than never 👍👏
Agreed. On a separate note, did you notice Jensen contribute anything positive at all today? Or recently?

To be fair, at least you are open and honest in your disapproval as opposed to some who feel they ought perhaps to come on and say something positive but then can’t help themselves in negating the positivity with a couple of not so subtle digs.

Jensen is never going to bang in a ton of goals, that's not his game. However, the other subtle things he does out there to help us succeed should not be ignored.

They were on the amphetamines and it all wore off after 15 minutes. The Brentford boys did well.
One of my fav ever away days, loved it but we needed a break and we got one, I can’t lie and say I think 11v11 for much longer would have been great for us though.

Early in his time with us MJ took a lot more shots. They didn’t come off so it’s obviously not his forte but I think he was and probably continues to be instructed not to shoot as it isn’t his role in the team and he’s more effective picking a pass to a better placed player. That may have initially been part of the evolution in attacking style we had over our last three Championship seasons moving our average shot position from being outside the penalty area to inside it to inside the 6 yard box. Even now almost all our goals are from inside the area. The problem has come when MJ has ended up himself being in the POMO and so has to shoot (eg Man U at home) or reduce our threat by passing to a less well-placed player. That’s the big development goal for next season, particularly now he’s obviously worked on beefing up his challenges and is much more attuned to the physical demands of the PL.

Some of his passing today. Erikson-esque.
While Eriksen has a fantastic range of passes, particularly the accuracy of long-range ones, Jensen's 'packing' passes – the ones threaded through opposition players that look terrible if they don't come off – I think show a different type of vision. Together, they are able to rip apart opposition defences if they are allowed to play their game. The total control we had in large phases of the second half really stretched Everton. ... and Jensen had the most tackles of all our players, too. That pair, with Nørgaard having more freedom behind them, has got to be our best midfield (disregarding the Eddie Hutchinson trio dream midfield, of course).

Sure he had more space yesterday for obvious reasons but if that was the reason for his performance we have to find a way to engineer it more often in 11v11 because he was absolutely top notch yesterday.

The pass in the build up to the first goal. Outrageous!!
Was one of his best efforts for us. Still doesn’t quite top his pass for Ollie Watkins in the POSF against Swansea though. IMO.

He needs to keep it up though. He’s put in a good shift recently and needs to do it again v Leeds next week.

He is always arriving late into the box which seems odd considering he cannot finish

I’m just glad that those who spent all season slagging off this player at every opportunity have now had the maturity to accept that they were clueless, and have now readily accepted their humiliation. Takes character to do that.

Thank you for your service 👏

For me his game has gone up a few notches since the arrival of Erikson.
I think they complement each other well. I like how we’ve got several quite stylistically different midfield combinations available with a fully fit squad.

He will always be seen as a curate's egg. Though in all honesty, the things I would like to see more of are not part of his game. Great vision and range of passing certainly is and fair play to him, he's been playing well recently.

I really dislike these sort of posts…they don’t do anyone any good🙄 he had a decent game yesterday…he’s had many games where he hasn’t…you take it far too personally that anyone has a different view on MJ😉

You know what really annoys me are people who find it impossible to admit that they are wrong. They then go on to blame others for pointing out their errors and accuse them of “making it too personal”.

That applies to all our players!

I think the difference is that the Eriksen/Nørgaard/Jensen midfield are now all confident with their roles and skills and that the defenders and attackers are adjusting and expecting more from them.

He continued his good form from when CE has joined and outplayed him for the whole game.. just needs to work on his finishing and he'll be a much better asset going forwards
I am certain playing alongside a fellow Danish international has helped his game. Both in terms of inspiration, motivation and a touch of personal rivalry too. He has overtaken Baptiste, who had a few good games, and has stalled the return of jds too.
