Brentford Fans

“He’ll be decent in L1. Not good enough for Championship. Better at centre back than Left Back. Bit slow and panicky. Big unit.”

“never seen enough of him, has hardly played”

“opinion is divided. I think he’s decent but is raw. Not finished article.”

“solid league 1 centre back”

“stand out player in L1/L2 for Rochdale but made costly mistakes in Champ this yr and has a distinct lack of pace”

“he is our 5th choice CB only played 5 games last season if that and he made costly mistakes in 3 of those. “

“to be fair he was great for Rochdale but champ was defo too big a step up. Hopefully hasnt dented his confidence”

“he’s rock solid, all left foot, he’s a bit old fashioned with an eye for a diagonal.”

“He never stood a chance while Dean, Barbet, Egan and Bjelland are at the club.”

“He a young player who when I’ve seen him play has enough about him to stay, develop and fight for his place at the back”

“I have always thought he looked an effective defender, if somewhat agricultural at times. With the four CBs we have, all probably ahead of him at present, I wouldn’t blame him if he wanted to go elsewhere in search of first team action. I would expect him to do very well back in League 1.”

“I like him and think he will only get better with time”

“I think he’s been a bit unlucky. After Tarkowski left he looked like he’d get a run in the team, but it quickly became apparent that our style required at least one ball playing CB, and seeing as Barbet is a left-sider it was J’OC that had to make way. Add to that Bjelland coming back and I think the writing was on the wall. Still wouldn’t be surprised to see him develop into a good Championship or even Premier League centre half though so I hope that if he does go we have a hefty sell-on clause.”

Rochdale Fans 


“ quality centre back excellent reading of the game”

“Great signing for them”

“We were spoilt with O’ Connell”

“O’Connell is possibly the best centre half in this division”

“Was hoping we would get Jack back for one more loan”

“Great defender”

“Absolute diamond. For a young lad, he’s as good as I’ve seen at this level. He has one hell of a future ahead of him if he continues to improve and develop in the same way as he has here last season under Keith Hill.”

“Best reader of play I have seen in ages”

“If Brentford hadn’t recalled him from loan at the end of January 2015, I think we might have sneaked into the playoffs instead of Chesterfield…
Looks like Wilder knows what he’s doing!”
