Me included, although my doubts were fitness related, and those have yet to be tested. As I said hopefully.
As mentioned elsewhere, hoping that the less intense PL schedule, (compared to Championship), and PJ's International retirement, will help him to play a greater % of games compared to last 2 seasons.....

Hes been integral to our solid start. His organisation skills are clear to see in games.

If we can keep the three of them fit they will be a formidable back 3 for a lot of sides to try and breach.

Perhaps the making of our best defensive unit ever seen.

Doesn’t seem that long ago that loads were saying we’d never play 3 at the back again, now it seems everyone’s preferred choice 😂🐝

Looked good again yesterday.
Only mistake was when he tried to bring the ball out of our 6 yard box (rather than wellying it) and presented it to Ings for the chance that resulted in Raya's fantastic save....

Apart from letting there score have freedom of the penalty area.
As TF said it was a communication issue that gave him the room to get his shot off, but over the 3 games they have been superb. No one goes through the whole season without making any mistakes or bad choices, difference with the prem as opposed to the championship is that you get punished for your mistakes. Fine margins.

Liverpool at present
He was one of three players who could have closed in on Buendia. I thought Rico was correct to track Cash and give Buendia credit for opening the opportunity.

Pontus seems to have stepped up a level this season and I hope he does better with injuries than in the last couple.
He defends very well, organises, communicates and generally acts as a great leader. Looks at home in the EPL.

Would like to see him cut out the silly things from his game that let him down. They always seem to get severely punished and will do so more in the EPL. So far so good on that front this season

So far so good. He’s a leader and an influencer on the pitch and the players respect, listen and seem to play better when he’s on the pitch.
Unsure if he has the pace needed at this level but to date he’s been excellent and not sure the fault for Buendia goal should be laid squarely with him.

With his role as the central player of the three centre backs, pace is not necessarily going to over-ride the other attributes and it gives him the ideal view to orchestrate the defence beside and in front of him. We're still dangerously short of cover in his absence, though.

Rumours ala Dalsgaard he will return to home at the end of his contract next summer, and sign for Malmö. He is alleged to have told Swedish media to time to come home is getting closer.

This sounds very plausible. Like Dalsgaard if he does this after playing as well as he has so far this season and the club waives its option he’ll live on as an absolute Bees legend.

Makes perfect sense, if or rather when we stay up he is unlikely to be offered an extended improved contract so why wouldn’t he look to leave for home a Bees legend ?

We have an option to extend by a year so it wouldn’t take an improved contract. But I can see there’d be a “Premier League? Completed it, mate!” feeling and the chance to play for his home town club while still near his competitive peak rather than petering out as a waning player who they immediately start to manage out.

Agree, all I’m saying is a further year option could be like treading water for him if he’s made his mind up that he’s achieved what he joined us for?

Needs to score a goal first!

Sunday 22nd May 2022. Last game of the season. Home to Leeds. Scores the goal to send them down and see us grab sixth spot. It is written in the stars.
Leeds fans will presumably stop telling everyone he’s a Leeds ultra after that😀😀🐝🐝🐝

Wasn't a long term nagging injury sorted out with him last season, hopefully I'm right and that will help him cope better this season?

If true, it makes sense, Why not finish in the top tier of football, At his age and with injuries always taken longer to heal it seems the right choice to play back home to finish his playing career, and where the rigours of football could be a little less demanding on his body.

Re malmo more than likely an unwritten agreement with him that he can go there at an agreed time not at all surprised,unlike levy and Kane we will keep our part of the bargain

Leeds wont go down nor be anywhere doing so. Regrettably.

Uncanny how similarities between what Tony Craig's story was to establish is from L1 to Championship...to what Pontus has done at the step above:
. Became a skipper instilling a 'desire to defend' in the club.
. 1st season = heartbreak
. 2nd season = promotion
. 3rd season = (hopefully this year too) consolidation at the higher level.
. (Potentially) After 3rd season, return to hometown club.
Even the '0 goals' is matched.
