Andersen 07:11 - Apr 21 with 9784 viewsNorthantsHoop

I see there is some posts on here saying Andersen was a bit poor yesterday, didn't see that myself, he is one of the reasons that we are out of the mess we got ourselves in. Really rate him and his assists and delivery from set pieces a major factor in our improvement. Looks and is a very good signing.

Same thought he had a reallygood first half.... was everywhere and played some lovely touches off.... and is about the only player who can take a corner or free kick.
Worrying that he tired considerably in the 2nd half.... but there again quite a few did.... hopefully just nervous energy run out. With a better attack think he would be a better player.... let's be fair there is not a lot to aim for up front

I like him. With a proper pre-season behind him he’ll be a player I’m sure and without Willock and probably Chair he offers a bit of a spark.

This!

Definitely needs a few weeks off, followed by a good solid preseason. Personally, thought he was poor as the game progressed, but he's clearly got it!

I thought he was instrumental in the first half. Faded a bit in the second.

I like him. As you say, get a preseason under him and Frey and you'd see Even better players.

A good footballer hamstrung by what’s in front of him.

Lost count yesterday how many times midfielders and full backs should have had a simple out ball to players in front of them but looked up to find nothing was there and had to delay, scrambling their way out via various means uncalled for.

I like Andersen, give him some movement in front of him, he’ll be an asset.

I agree with the OP. Andersen isn't perfect but I don't get most of the criticism. He has great ball skills, good football intelligence and has made an important contribution since arriving. I too believe we'll see an even better player in the new season and, given Chair and/or Willock could depart, he's the type of player we need to replace them.

His passing range was slightly off yesterday and Smyth came on and helped nullify Mellor. Anderson is clearly a cultured player and with a proper pre-season and slightly better fitness he's a big asset.

Never knowingly right.

Lucas by the way did we mention Qpr play in the championship, they will come at you from everywhere so quick with feet and mind oh and Lucas we often play 3 games per week and it’s a bit relentless.

Lucas you will get used to it and then oh beautiful Son of Odin you can unleash the dogs of war.

It will come to pass

captains fantastic

Wish he would shoot more as there were a few opportunities yesterday where he could have done but chose to pass instead

Yes he looks decent on the ball, does some very nice football, should have shot for goal in the first half but opted for a pass.

It will be interesting to see if he can keep with the pace and action of the Championship.

Like a handful of our better players, I find Anderson a bit frustrating.
There's obviously a really good player in there - he's shown signs of some really classy football, but his decision making is sometimes poor and he tends to lose possession quite easily.
Hopefully once the balance across the side is sorted, he will have a strong part to play in our renaissance next season.
We definitely need to work on the dead ball situation next season - so many missed opportunities.
A very useful squad player for us.

I spoke to Lucas after the game and he said his performance has been affected by fans spelling his name incorrectly.

Apparently he has a Supermarionation phobia, but he loves Danish fairy tales (like this).

Andersen on 09:49 - Apr 21 with 4341 viewsnix

I don't think Marti would mind him putting almost everything into the first half. He doesn't just offer a lot going forward, he also does a lot of the hard yards at the back that doesn't always get noticed, like closing down space and winning the ball back. Without a pre-season it's not surprising he runs out of steam around 60 minutes. But having Smyth and Armstrong and their pace mean that we can pin them back in the last thirty minutes or so, so it's fine for Andersen to come off around then.

Also having had so many must-not-lose games in a row has meant we haven't been able to play with the same kind of freedom we might like to. Being able to take slightly more risks might be interesting next season. He certainly looks happy playing for us and that's nice to see.

Decent player.

Definitely offers something. Corners and link up play and picking out a pass.

Does seem to get subbed often around 65 minutes.

With Willock and Chair likely to move at some point, a useful addition to our squad.

Pleased he is here.

He’s much more than a squad player.
I thought yesterday he did give the ball away 3 or 4 times at moments that put us under pressure BUT this is partly because he does not want to play the easy sideways or backwards ball. We could all keep possession passing it 4 yards backwards as some of our players have in the recent past, but that won’t win you many games.

Bare bones.

Spot on also despite his lack of pace he was tracking back. Best passer in the team by miles, he more times he plays the more chances the rest of the guys get on his wavelength

He's overdue a goal, it's a shame we got that free kick on the edge of the box 30 secs after he'd been subbed he would have taken that.
He'll score in one of the final two games.

Andersen on 10:06 - Apr 21 with 4239 viewsPhilmyRs

I’m not getting the Andersen praise I must say, think people are being way too easy on him and focusing on the fact he can trap a ball and play the odd decent pass as evidence of him being superior to others. The positives yesterday were a lot of his set piece delivery was good, which makes a welcome change for us. But I don’t buy this argument about looking for the harder pass or whatever and that’s why it doesn’t always come off. Yesterday he was picking the wrong pass a lot of the time, lost the ball a lot more than a player of his ability should, and chose the wrong option a fair few times.

I was a real fan of his in the early days but over the last few weeks I’ve been alarmed by his inability to pick the right pass and his decision making with the ball. He’s not good defensively so if he’s not on it from an attacking point of view I think we’re carrying him a bit and Smyth may be a better option. I can see some decent parts to his game, I’m not disputing that but he’s put in performances recently that someone like Willock would be slated for.

Surprised so many people think he played well yesterday. You couldn't fault his effort and he kept showing for the ball and wanting it and trying to make things happen, but second half in particular almost nothing he tried came off as intended and I was pleased we put Smyth on and brought Willock inside when we did. Got him on a 5 atm.

Andersen on 10:09 - Apr 21 with 4224 viewsdm97

Better slightly deeper imo, where he has touch more space and time. Certainly the best passer of the ball but the speed of the league does seem to catch him out at times, but you can forgive that for a guy in his adaptive phase. He'll figure it out, you dont play in the CL for Ajax for nothing.

Also allows Willock to be central which he clearly prefers, though that problem unlikely to be the case next year. Much like Frey, let them be until autumn time - no pre-season a huge factor.

He’s surprisingly athletic given his age and injury record. He cut out a number of chest high balls across him by stretching his boot far from his body and bringing them down under control,very impressive. Willock was shot for the last 20 minutes and I’m surprised he was left on but he won none of those high loose rebounds.

Agreed: I rate him and think he will get better when fitter but was our worst performer yesterday.

Maybe not entirely related but after Andersen went off we seemed to be under siege from what I would say was up till then, a fairly disinterested Preston.

As for Smyth, does my head in. As Preston pushed forward Smyth had umpteen opportunities to push up, get in line with the solitary full back where acres of space were available to run onto a through pass. Again and again he positioned himself 10 yards too far back waiting for the ball to feet and blew any attacking opportunities.

Andersen is a cut above, we just need to put some competence in front of him.
