Words from Rasmus suggesting they recognise he'll need time to get up to speed "He will need some time to adapt to English football, but he has all the physical attributes to do well here."

Are contracts running from October to October or is this a 4 season deal until June 2024?

Perfect, sounds just what we need and not just a DM, very much in Norgaard's style he can go box to box as well. We now have a lot of options in midfield so no excuses for not rotating during the busy periods. Wonder whether this will see Zamburek go out on loan? Difficult to see him even getting on the bench at the moment and it's a long way to the next league cup or FA cup game..

It will be to June 2024. The alternative doesn't make a lot of sense :)

Perfect. Good to see us using the German market as well. If Buur comes in on loan I would say we have the most complete squad we have ever had regardless of what happens with Benrahma, and who knows maybe the DOFs have a further surprise up their sleeves.

Who’s Buur?

As well as cover for CN, it will be nice to have the option of a midfield trio of CN, VJ, and JDS for tough away games when EM and MJ struggle to make an impact and get bullied a bit.

Hope this won’t cut into Shandon Baptiste’s minutes much. Would be great to see him push on. That being said, excited for this signing

I think it's a hint he'll need to do some time in the B team.

As Baptiste isn’t fit, injured again, plus Janelt is a different type of midfield player, this signing is needed as cover for Norgaard.

It's not about giving players minutes, we have to get the best team out every game. This signing will provide further options and cover for injured or suspended players which are both required over this very demanding season. The bar is being raised all the time which may unfortunately require us to let some players leave, or go out on loan. A price we have to pay if we want to continually improve.

Very true.
Josh Clarke is a perfect example. A valuable squad player just a couple of years or so ago but we have left him well behind.
It might seem tempting to loan out the likes of Zamburek, Balcombe and Halil but the match schedule this season will be really punishing and we will probably need every player we have.

Looks like a decent signing. Happy with this. Now a RB please DOF.

Yes turning into another Yearwood at this rate. Hope he can get fit and regularly available. Expected him (baptiste) to get some time for the B team today
Showed more ability than Yearwood though. Baptiste clearly has the ability to be another we develop into a Prem player

I don’t think anyone is arguing that we shouldn’t put out the best team possible- that’s a total straw man. What is true is that no Brentford team will have 11 players playing all at their peak years- some will still be developing, some will be seasoned vets, some might even be a year past their prime. But if you don’t play your best developmental prospects- abs I believe Baptiste to be one- then they don’t develop as fully and their potential is not fulfilled. I am excited for this signing and most of our players can play across our midfield 3 so they are not directly competitive but it is legitimate to wonder whether this closes the margins for patience to get Baptiste fit and get him playing, like we did with Josh DaSilva for example

I thought Janelt was CN understudy, not Baptiste's. Is that wrong?

Maybe we need to play him in the midfield 3 with CN & Josh. We certainly need more defensively able players who can tackle. Today Sergi, Bryan, Marcondes & Jensen didnt fulfil that
Agree it’s worth a look at, some of his write up said about him getting from box to box as well as defending
Last season at times we added Mokotjo to play along side Norgaard

I have been told by a Fortuna Düsseldorf supporting friend (known as Brian to his friends) and who has seen Janelt play several times, that we shouldn’t expect him to be the new messiah.

Sure Fiorentina supporters would've said the same about Norgaard. Does Brian have a better eye than those involved in the German national teams and our DoFs? Let's give the boy some game time and support

I would not be at all surprised if he was bought based on a judgement that neither Marcondes nor Jensen are delivering on a consistent enough basis

Janelt can play the 6 and the 8, as Baptiste has been playing. Janelt might be more of a natural 6 and Baptiste more of an 8, but they have both played in both positions.

Pretty sure I read somewhere that he’s some way off first team football

All depends whether he's in the squad for Saturday. I guess much depends on the Norgaard situation and whether he's fit or not.
i'd have thought he'll be involved on Saturday (even if just sat on the bench) - we have six first-team midfielders, but two are out injured (Norgaard and Baptiste). and one of the others (Jensen) is still working his way back.

The fact we haven’t heard anything about his injury i expect that’s the case.
We've had that before and players have started the next game. Suspect we're keeping things quiet because of transfer window. There's been no training photos or anything from the club this week. We don't appear to be rushing to bring another midfielder in so I'd assume it's not serious.. Might get an idea when we see who starts for B team tomorrow!

Think PG just said he may need some time . didn't he.
Times up !
I took it that by some time he meant more than 2 weeks, however this may have to be pushed forward with the CN injury.
