    v Brentford (H) Match Thread

    A few thoughts about the game. Some of this is the BrewDog speaking, but still... I haven't enjoyed 45 minutes of football as much as that first half since 13/14. It was almost like the first minute goal was irrelevant. We just played as though it hadn't happened, and in the remaining 89 minutes delivered one of the trademark 3-0 home wins that characterised (much of) that glorious season. All the hype about Mason Mount... is true. What a player. Technique, time, strength, vision and goal threat. He is going to be remembered as England's greatest midfielder since Gascoigne. Bogle - ought to make his England debut on the same day as MM. I really mean that. Will Hughes is the only player I have ever seen who was as accomplished aged 18. Wilson - I thought until today that he was a bit of a mardy kid. Now I can see he can play too. He was electric first half. Disappointed that he didn't pass when he was through after the break - would have been a certain 4-1. Lamps alluded to it in his interview on RD. He'll learn. Johnson - I have never been a fan. Somehow he has become a better footballer. It can only be the coaching. Wow. Tomori and Keogh - Davies must be preparing for an extended spell on the bench. Never saw that coming. Forsyth - I'm just delighted for him. He must have thought he was finished at Derby. He's back. Best of all, it was such a great performance, and Bryson was the beating heart of the team. Received wisdom says he's a player who is "everywhere". Today he was. Deserved MOTM without a doubt, and I couldn't be happier about it. What's not to like about the Lampard era? He has bonded with the fans already. His daughter has been born in Derbyshire. He is bringing the best out of Bennett and Nugent. Love it.

    It appears that 2014-model Bryson and 2014-model Forsyth are playing tonight. Makes a difference.

    M Poom S Carson P Shilton S Eranio M Sage M Forsyth C Powell M Wright I Stimac C Short T West G Williams A Gemmill W Hughes A Asanovic G Micklewhite P Simpson M Vydra D Saunders P Wanchope F Baiano C Martin M Gabbiadini I found it surprisingly hard to pick wide men so went for extra strikers in the end on the basis that the like of Baiano and Hughes are so adaptable (but would never succumb to the temptation to stick Vydra out wide). Leaving out Davison, Goddard, Sturridge, Strupar and Rasiak was tough and is a reminder of some of the quality strikers we have had over the years.

    Looks like Jacob might be getting a run out at Causeway Lane next week. Possibly with a Claude Davis comeback as well, if I am reading this right: http://www.peakconcerts.co.uk/event/coco-and-the-butterfields-2/

    Lincoln are at the top of League Two, but otherwise agree with all of that. There must be more to it than the Notts County game, but it still does feel as though that played a part. Thomas and Bogle had lit the place up in the first 45 mins, and it almost seemed like Elsnick was trying too hard to meet the weight of expectation. Having said that, he still has plenty of time, and the new regime does appear to have a refreshing approach of judging players on their actual merits. Like Max Lowe, and Luke Thomas in fact, playing regularly at a lower level is perhaps a better fit for him than being a bit part bench warmer at the moment.

    U23s v Leicester City

    True, and potentially Hudds could step in at CB too. My point is that Pearce, who has been a member of the 16 for more than one first team game this season, hasn’t played any football. Given that we might have to call on him at some point, I’d have thought we’d need to at least keep him warm with some game time.
