Yes comes across well and very much has the team ethic that the management promote above all else.

Looked well short of fitness but showed some good touches and good work rate. Got an assist, though couldn't tell if he meant that to go to Forss or Said... If he meant it for Forss it was an excellent spot!

Definitely still a bit rusty, but got an assist which will do him the world of good. Not sure he passed it quite where he wanted but that's another story.

Looking forward to seeing more of him.

Thought he looked decent. Tidy on the ball used his body well on a few occasions to shield a long ball and tended to come out with it. Also showed composure for the assist, almost dummying to go past the left back before squaring, most importantly, behind the retreating defenders. Lots of promise

Perfect game for him to get minutes under his belt. He has only been in the country a couple of weeks and once he gets settled in London and plays a few more games, I believe he will be a real asset for us.

I'm really glad he got some match fitness minutes going on tonight. Of course, he's still not ready to push 90 min and he was kind of gassed at the 55/60 minute mark. Lovely assist, he's really pinpoint and that's what I like about him so much, he knows exactly where to place the ball, just like his accuracy shooting on goal.

I bet in a couple of weeks he will be 100% and will be able to unleash the beast

Class act, takes goal kicks down on his chest, very Deon Burton! Looks a player to me, let his man run off him a few times, but will put that down to fitness. Hope he’s on the subs bench for Preston
Yes great spot, I noticed that too. His link play is tidy, looks to me like a different player to Canos or Bryan, maybe a slightly more intelligent/experienced footballer.

Seemed to have understood our style of play immediately and slotted in perfectly. Very encouraging start and great assist too.

Good to see him play on the right. I would imagine that is a less preferred position for him but shows he'll do a team job.

He just seems to have fitted in straight away. Another top top signing ;)

Where do we think he prefers to play?

Good start and plenty to build on.

In his interview with Stu he said a 10, but otherwise I imagine he's earmarked for that Benrahma left-wing cutting-in role

Ghoddos has been invited to the national team. We've got 2 very important games to win to get to the next round for the WCQ, really poor since we had the most disgracefull coach ever after King Carlos Queiroz. with the talent group we have now and more and more players playing in europe, i.e Sardar azmoun in Zenith, Taremi in Porto and more we should be able to top the group and advance. weird selection with this new coach but i'm glad Ghoddos is in it.

Though since this thread is on Saman Ghoddos, a little extra info would be nice.. Lets go Brentford!

Shame he hasn't just become Brentford's first Iranian international, given he is contracted to Amiens still.

I would have a much different selection and formation, 3-5-2/3-4-3 and wouldn't invite many of the players selected now, and i'd start ghoddos. but we'll see. i think Tuesday were playing Mali. i would set in in cam position in the starting 11. our goalkeeper isn't national team material very poor, and from the choices on the bench he wouldn't even be 3rd. it would be Beyranvand(Antwerp) or Abedzade(Maritimo).

Eitherway, very poor game selection wise, starting 11. but a win is a win 2-1 end result.

Yep, Ghoddos should be good, but I doubt he will be Said good... He'll still likely need a bit of time to bed in, so expect Canos to feature for a while.

I think we heard the same when Maupay went

I think Ghoddos will be good, but Benrahma good is unfortunately very unrealistic. Until we make the Prem odds are we won't see someone as good as Said. Hope he proves me wrong though 😆

I think he'll be quite different. I don't think you can compare the two. Will be interesting to see how he fits into the team. Looks like he should be better at free-kicks than Said though!

A short but promising cameo. Curious when he'll be fully fit and in contention to start

Hopefully soon. He is one of those players that just oozes class even though he hasn’t got going at all yet.

It was interesting to see him come on centrally rather than on the wing.

Does this mean he might be played as a midfield three as well as say...Mbeumo Toney Canos???

Looks quite a way off full fitness at the mo so I’d expect to see him getting more minutes off the bench for the time being. Couple of nice passes and runs off the ball. Was in behind at the death but the ball didn’t get to him

I must agree with @Mr Cynical on this one. Players are all different, from the supporters perspective when one player has done incredibly well for them and leaves, it's completely natural to go and compare the player who is going to replace him with the one they cheered on and played well for them. But I must say if anyone expects Saman Ghoddos to be identical to Benrahma then i will have to say you will be disappointed.

He's got other qualities that Benrahma doesn't have and the same counts the other way around. He plays different and his thinking and gaming IQ is different. The thing that we all know is that he's got quality pouring from him (The people who have seen him play more than 30 minutes know what I'm talking about). So for the coming weeks, there are tight schedules mostly because of the league games and in November because it's just around the corner.. he'll be called up for another National Team camp. The time spent traveling back also doesn't really help because of the fatigue it brings with him.

What's important now is training with the team, the coaches get more of an idea on how to capitalize on his abilities to help the team, analyze previous matches, and build on the winning momentum. I'm sure Saman will play a great part this season but at the same time I must warn everyone that the Premier League and the championship are two leagues that require a lot of stamina, it's tougher than most leagues and it does require some time for newer players to get in the rhythm and hopefully then we can see the true potential.

I like your attention to the fact that they are two different players.. both of them have some poison behind their play in which they can unleash when in form.

Fantastic post: please keep contributing. I’m really delighted to see him as part of the squad and hopefully an integral part of the team going forward. On my two trips to Iran I have been overwhelmed by the level of hospitality I have received from the Iranian people and I hope that Saman ends up feeling the same way about how he has treated by the Brentford supporters

Natural variation notes it is, in reality, impossible to have two players that are ever the same; the mistake is in trying to replace like for like, rather than adapt to accommodate the new aggregate of parts.

When Benrahma started with us, he started from the bench as we nurture them in to our high press, very fit, lead the line and make an impact style and philosophy.
Ghoddos is our most interesting signing of the season, we see things in players like Jota, Benrahma that others don’t take the gamble on and blood them in gently and let them breathe.
In a years time, he will either have disappeared off the radar without a trace or be worth 20 million.
i know which way I’m thinking aren’t you?

Agree with most of that Mick, but Ghoddos is a fair bit older than Benrahma. No doubt we'll nurture and bed in, but I think he's been brought in to make an impact much more quickly than some previous signings.
