Couch grass? There has been small patches here. It spread quite a lot last year. Smoothers everything else out

Bit of a stab - Long papery ligule, broad soft leaf, 2 quite large unequal glumes. Only appears to have 2 (maybe 3 - can't really tell) florets.
Branches not reflexing maybe due to the flowerhead just having emerged

I don't think this is Ehrharta, I've seen a fair bit of it. Maybe Poa?

I agree with Luke, I would’ve tended towards poa as well.

This plant formed a dense matt smothering out everything. Like couch does. It is not a clumping plant. Will some Poas form mats?

I don't know where Ehrharta came from! I think that's from when I didn't realise I'd clicked on a name
Only one with runners in that area that I'm aware of is Poa pratensis
