Started well, didn’t do a lot during the middle third of the game, but a decent finish.
Did OK.

A very good and positive start and generally contributed well over the 90 minutes.

Did more then "ok". Was an outlet, linked the play and defended well. Offered bundles more then BM did and he linked very well with Rico.

Worked hard and link up play made a difference. Took the wrong option on occasion but much more effective than Canos for the team generally. Think should keep the place as long as he performs at least as well as that.

Now you mention it, it does sound like Jeux Sans Frontières!

Actually, I don't think Tarique played a great game himself but he linked up with understanding with Rico, plus Josh and Emiliano at times, so the sum of the parts was greater than his individual performance. Similarly, the contributions of Vitaly and Emiliano made it a great team performance.

Would like to see him run beyond the defender and exploit the gaps, which he seemed a bit reluctant to do. Maybe under instructions.

Played well. We need to bear in mind that we will continue to rotate players over the next month so I don't expect him to start tonight. However, he's now right in the mix.

Yeah, not great. A more suitable LW option than Ghoddos and Canos, but that’s not hard. Hope to see improvement with more minutes.
Yep.
Definitely struggling on the left atm.

I don't really see that he offers an awful lot more than Canos but he does link up quite well with Henry. It was his poor cross though that left us exposed with the both of them stuck upfield. I think we need to be looking for better in Jan..

I agree, there has been a lot of criticism for Canos this season which I understand but Fosu doesn’t offer anything more. He’s a squad player, hasn’t shown enough to deserve a start.

I think like Canos, he maybe looks better when he's used as a sub.

Didn't look bad tonight...but didn't massively stand out either. This part of the pitch, be it him, Canos or Ghoddos, is holding us back. Hopefully one of them can step up soon.

He offers more in that with him playing it allows Rico to push forward more, as Fosu defends better. That’s enough for me right now.

Although, their goal......
Yep. One cock up. However, Rico has probably played his best two games with Fosu in front of him. Instead of a headless chicken.

Really??
Rico has been superb all season.
Not convinced that TF has allowed him to play any better.....

I shouted at the telly
Foul him. Half way line. He would have got a yellow card but hey ho.
It will be something he will learn.
Apart from that VJ had a great game
Was shouting the same. "take a yellow" "tactical foul" "FFS kick him"

30 seconds later "Oh b******s" :banghead:

Yes he did play well though. Positioning needs some work.

'slow
I'm not going to judge him after being in the wilderness and then playing Tuesday/Friday. It's interesting that TF clearly wants the right sided attacker to tuck in more than the left and allow Henry to bomb forward, this should suit Ghoddos more than Fosu

If Fosu had made the challenge initially instead of hesitating it wouldn’t of happened. Then it was obviously down to VJ to deal with and then Dalsgaard so I’m not saying Fosu is fully to blame. Likewise others were saying Rico should of sat back for Samuel but the attack/chance wouldn’t of happened either.

Is Fosu really any better at defending than Canos? It’s not entirely what we should be looking for in a left sided forward either. Yes it allows Rico to push forward but he wouldn’t need to as much if Fosu offered an attacking threat. Neither players are proving they deserve the position. Hopefully Ghoddos comes good as it’s too early to judge the level he is at whereas I think we know where Fosu and Canos are.

Well hopefully Fosu has been added to the midfield rota. We have to get through to Christmas with the personnel we have now. So the more personnel our manager believes in, the better

Looks like he got a telling off at half-time for those ridiculous gloves...

Was solid and did as well as one could expect. Am I right in thinking that every game Fosu has started we have won this season?
