    Joel Bagan (D Cardiff b.2001)

    Was watching Bagan today in the Nottingham Forest v Cardiff game, first time I have properly watched him play.

    Thought he played well, wasn't really involved in any of the goals scored or the one Cardiff conceded, but he got up and down the left side of the pitch well and seems to have good crossing ability. Was also unlucky not to score with a looping header that came back off the bar.

    Only turned 20 last week and didn't look out of place at Championship level today, so definitely some promise there.

    It was an absolutely awful game. He did fine. Nothing to get wildly excited about but he was solid in defence and got forward well. Thought he might have gotten played in by Colwill for the second goal, great run from him there.

    I watched Cardiff at Peterborough a few weeks ago & Bagan was playing near where I was sitting, he looked about twelve to me. He does get up and down well, yes, and he had two covering runs back which were well tracked in that match, one he took off the strikers head for a corner and one he nodded back to his keeper very calmly, both back post ones where he had covered a lot of yards to be in the right place when it came in.

    Cardiff were very direct, but he took two short throw ins where he showed & got it back then passed it and one free kick where he was nudged, put his hand on the ball, knocked it ten yards and got it back. It was noticeable because most other throws / frees his side got, they stopped, set and launched into a channel. It contrasted with how they set up but Mick does seem to rate him also.

    I didn't find him noticeably quick, but he's far from slow either.
    Here they come! It’s the charge of the “Thanks” Brigade!
