I hope he starts every game until CN is fit, he allows Jenson and Josh to play there normal role and we look a far better side with those 3 starting.

I want to see him and Norgaard play together in front of them , Dasilva Jenson maybe Marcondes even Ghoddos
Playing those two as cover for both back for and attacking midfield would be very interesting

It would probably mean Christian taking the box-to-box role from Josh, though, otherwise we'd lose an attacker.

OK missed his big chance on Saturday but great to see a midfielder ,especially from the holding role, getting into that position and really attacking the ball. Reminded me a bit of Dougie.Encouraging.

Nørgaard gets into the box and has a shot, although goals only in the league cup; a few assists in the Championship, though.

Er.... Surely it would have just "moved" Jensen further forward, so same positions, different personnel. Probably given us another outlet higher up, rather than the permanently unavailable Marcondes...
Didn't work against a high pressing Fulham in the POF with MJ & JDS either side of CN did it though? Doesn't really work if you're chasing shadows all over the pitch like Jensen did on the right that night.

It will be tough on him if he has to drop out when Norgaard returns, same with Sorensen, they have both been
very capable.

Ive been very impressed with him but I expect even he didn’t expect to play so much so soon.

Sorensen’s looked good as well and they both have big futures here but to get back among the automatic promotion mix we need better than capable at the moment.

It's a similar trajectory to Mbeumo. He wouldn't have got all the starts if Canós had not been injured last season. We'd probably then had loads of fans saying that Sergi should be dropped in favour of a player who'd got better and better the less he'd been seen.

But Jannson's form recently has not been top notch

Maybe it would be worth swapping Canos and Mbeumo around. Canos has always looked better on the right and maybe Mbeumo may enjoy some time on the left. He would then have to take the right back on a lot more. Just a suggestion.

In my opinion we should start Vitaly, he’s not Norgaard but he’s decent and is a square peg in a square hole. This means Jensen and JDS can play their usual roles and we have better balance and link from front to back.

Dropping Jensen deep then Ghoddos into midfield with Vitaly on the bench after 2 weeks rest feels unnecessary!

Yes I think this is the best solution for now by far.

Agree - although I would imagine Vitaly not starting today is more due to the fact TF is trying to rotate players ahead of a busy schedule of games.

Well he can't rotate because he doesn't have enough Championship level players to choose from, simple as that.

He's getting better and better. Looked a lot sharper tonight, has been caught on the ball a few times previously but not today.. Really good passing as well, not just side to side but proper progressive stuff.. nice..

Will be interesting to see if when CN is back this kid keeps his place. Could see CN playing a bit further forward especially against the better teams.

Let’s give Janelt credit tonight. Signed less than two months ago with the expectation that he’s need time to get used to the English game and he’s taken his chance and throttled it. Yes he’s not a world beater but he’s only just arrived. Looks like he has the right attitude and wants to improve and grow. Hats off.

I'd guess the international break has allowed him to take a breather and for the coaches to get him clear on the way we need him to play. He looked excellent tonight.

Quality player. I think he can play in front of Nøgaard when he gets back as another option myself.

And after he’s back for me.
We have a good squad but Thomas has to adjust the system to fit the players.
Agree 100%. With those two, it gives enormous flexibility for JDS, Jensen and/or Ghoddos behind Toney and/or Forss, particularly if the wingers are struggling.

Now leave him there!

He makes us more solid, more balanced, has a great forward pass to transition defence to attack and allows others to play their natural roles. I see no reason (other than fitness) why he shouldn’t occupy the DCM spot until Christian returns.

Imagine what he’s going to be like with a season under his belt!

Or indeed how ‘unleashed’ a front 4 (and wing backs) could be if you played Vitaly and Christian in front of our back four for certain games!

MotM tonight, he plays with such confidence, he is class. To think if needs be we can play him and Norgaard (when fit) is a massive bonus. Should have started Saturday, needs to start whenever Norgaard does not...

I think when Norgaard returns we may have the key to grinding wins against tough teams by playing him and Janelt together. It’d free the full backs, make us rock solid in the middle and the two of them are also good at progressive passes. Maybe not last season’s free flowing football but the option to bully difficult opponents like Karanka’s Boro did to us in 14-15/15-16.

He mentioned in his first interview that he can play the 8 as well as the 6, so that's a nice option to have and keep the midfield fresh

Needs to learn the 2 and the 4 before we can appreciate.

Spot on AB.
I think we'd have gone up if we'd had this option at Wembley ...... but do you think Thomas would/will go for it?

Genuinely excited by this guy. Reminds me a bit of Diagouraga, not in the way he plays but in the fact he looks very consistent, under the radar and potential to be the engine room of the team.

It’d still be our 433 and would not involve any other tactical change so there’s no philosophical reason for TF to object. He has deployed two notionally defensive midfielders before (whether on the basis of the players themselves or their roles on the day). I agree Fulham wouldn’t have had a sniff against this layout, but they barely did anyway apart from a very fortunate free kick.

Amazed at the impact he has made after RA played down expectations of him. He is looking a bargain, seems to have a brilliant attitude, not fazed by physical encounters.
