Title: FoF Man of the Match QPR V Fulham FA CUP = Joy Bryan
Post by: love4ffc on January 09, 2021, 03:26:53 PM
Who was your MOTM for Fulham against QPR in the FA Cup and why?

Joe Bryan is my MOTM.  He had a fantastic game and would love to see more of him.  More importantly, he showed his strength after getting slammed by the ball to the side of the face and continued to play well.  Shame that the concussion substitution rule is not in place as I do think he should have been subbed. 

Could have easily given MOTM to Rodak who has once again proven he is a great Keeper to have on the books.

Agree with Joe Bryan.   He looks like a better "team" player than Lookman, even though Lookman looks more direct.   

Rodak my #2

Aina my #3


Really nice seeing a lot of pace in that holding mid spot.

is this a joke?  IMO our 4 best performers were Rodak, Aina, Bryan and Reed. My MotM vote goes to Joe  B.

Joe for me. Honourable mentions for Rodak and Aina who were also very good all game. Good performances from the subs Kebano, BDR and Robinson too - they came on and changed the match for us.

All in all, I’m okay with the performance. Poor to start with and lots of players needing to shake off the rust (Onomah, Ream) but much better by the end.

Went for Bryan, but have a hard time seeing anyone being a huge standout. Could see a load of the players being rusty with wayward passes.

Think Tete did pretty well too. Managed to keep Samuel quiet for most of the time.

1. Bryan
2. Rodak
3. Aina.

Kebano, BDR and Robinson played well when they came on.

Rodak because his saves kept us in the game at a time that , had QPR scored, we might have been overrun.

Just wanted to bring up that CAV would have been in my top five based on his first half performance.

He's poor in the final third but I thought he was good (movement, passing) otherwise.

Rodak - kept us in the game for certain
Tete, Aina, Robinson, Kebano and Bryan all played their part too
Kongolo not too bad considering

Went for Josh never stopped running for 120 mins in his 1st game back in ages .

Bryan was second and also tete and rodak close

I have gone for aina, I thought he played both positions well, tete, Bryan and Robinson when he came on played well. I thought Reed played well considering rlc and onomah were poor.

Thought Reid, Kebano and Robinson ultimately made the difference but none were on long enough to be MOM. I don’t understand all the plaudits that Joe Bryan is getting. He had a solid game but his play in the final third didn’t amount to much. Ola Aina once again gave a great all round performance and was my MOM.

Post by: Plodder on January 09, 2021, 06:09:12 PM
Aina. Robinson made a difference, as did Bobby D-R, but Aina played the full 120 minutes. Bryan was the other serious candidate.

Went for Bryan for his full on contribution followed by Rodak & Aina.

Joe for me although I thought Tete had a good game considering first one back for some months.

Impressive performance from Joe Bryan. Great effort, good defence, constructive. Looked like a man prepared to put in a claim for a 1st team spot however good Robinson has been there.
For me, just shaded by Rodak. Joe's final ball too often went astray (the team's passing in general was poor today), wheras Marek made no mistake (maybe that time he should have tipped the ball over but instead, in trying not to give away a corner, just slapped the ball back into danger). A luxury no.2 keeper.

I gave it to Rodak because he kept us in the match until the subs were able to come on and make a difference. But Bryan also had a good game so I completely understand those who voted for him. Honourable mentions for the subs but especially the underrated Kebano.

Post by: BarryP on January 09, 2021, 06:35:02 PM
If the vote was for the game changing player of the match I would’ve voted for BDR. Since it is the MOM I’m going with Aina followed closely by Rodak and Bryan.

Joe Bryan for me by some distance. Rodak did a great job in goal. Tete looks a classy act, pleased with how Kongolo performed considering he was bound to be rusty. I do not know why Kebano does not get picked from the start over Cav. Onomah and Hector also put in a good shift as did Harrison Reed.
The only players that really disappointed me on the day was Ream and Mitro.

Gone for Bryan, don't think he did anything wrong and took the odd chance at goal. Tete and Rodak also put in good shifts.

Come on Woolly, only those 2 that disappointed you, not often we disagree but we do now (lol), at least 4 others should have disappointed you can't remember who they were but I think there were 6 others that disappointed me. Happy New Year my friend!

I'm going to give it to Tete, disappointed that he didn't get some crosses in, but played well, didn't put a foot wrong.

I must politely disagree with you there about Joe’s play in the final third not amounting to much.  During the first 90 he had a moment where he cut inside and had a really nice shot on goal that was reminiscent of his second goal at Wembley last season.  One of the only real shots the team had in the first 90 as too many of the players were taking to many touches and not even getting shots off. 

He’s plays in the final third almost led to a goal.  He received the ball nicely and took it through the QPR defender, who fouled him, stayed on his feet, and still got the ball into the box.  All that after taking two hard slammed balls to the head. 

Well done I say to Joe and really hope to see more of him in the remaining fixtures.

I liked the way Robinson and Bryan combined. Liked to see more of that.

We all see things differently I guess judging by the significant praise JB is getting today. Don’t get me wrong I thought he had a decent game, that’s all. He’s just nowhere near as positive going forward as Antonee Robinson,  as was evidenced when AR came on and is easily second to AR when it comes to defending so I can’t see him getting many if any starts moving forward.

Bryan Rodak and Aina were head and shoulders above the rest today. Happy to see my view reflects on the poll for once.

Now throw Robinson in the mix and that changes things a bit.  I personally wouldn’t mind seeing the left side being Robinson as LB, Bryan as left holding and Lookman as LW.  I could see that as being a very potent attacking side.

For me, Bryan's involvement in the second goal amoung other things is why he is winning MOTM.
