Mendy kneeds replacing (bad pun)

Post by Beacon » 14 Nov 2018, 22:36

Mendy has had an operation on his knee so will be out for some time. Ben Dinnery thinks 6-8 weeks. This international break not starting well. Any thoughts on best replacements other than the obvious (Robbo/Alonso/Doherty)?

Who fills in? Delph?
Laporte and Stones are easy city replacements

Think I will probably go with Digne and then use the funds to upgrade my midfield

Thankfully I have Laporte instead. You could try Delph or Danilo but I'd gather they may rotate with each other.

Not to mention Zinchenko. Oh just did.

Its likely especially over Christmas that Delph and Zinchenko will rotate. I'm just going to get Laporte as he will play every game 100% & is v unlikely to be rotated. Makes my transfers a 12 point hit though :x

I need to make a better hash of it that last time when I brought smalling in ....

Stones would free up the funds for Maddison -> martial soon

I like the idea of Digne also

Will Walker now be given reign to get forward more? Maybe when Delph fills in, but not Zinchenko?

Hmm, Laporte is the sensible pick. Walker could be the one to make some ground up.

I am between Digne and Dunk. I've got Robbo/Doherty/Alonso/Lascelles + Fabianski as the rest of defence

I'm not certain it does, I think Pep likes playing Mahrez (not convinced myself) plus now its Christmas it would definitely be wingers and fullbacks that are being rotated. If its being done when the schedule isn't that busy it will only get a lot worse IMO.

With all of the Mendy hullabaloo since the start if the season it's surprising to me to see that Walker is on only 3 points less having played just 90 minutes more.

And also Walker in about 13% of teams - can't remember seeing him in a single team. Assume they are dead teams but still....

Started the season with Walker and haven’t wildcard yet so still got him. I would choose Laporte over the other city defenders now though.

I’m looking at Balbuena 4.4 at West Ham.

Won’t play him for next 2 (will play Wolves def x 2) but then play him non-stop for their lovely lovely fixtures.

Anyone else considering West Ham def or is that crazy?

Digne/Keane are the other 2 I’m looking at.

Already have Ederson and Aguero and thinking I’ll use 3rd City slot for Sane or Sterling at some point.

Thoughts guys?

Balbuena obviously great value with those fixtures but that's not enough unless the 1.8mn-odd saved actually does something useful. I'd go for Digne if not looking at Laporte. I'd be making sure whoever I get can fill in some fixture 'gaps' though, if rotating defenders. West Ham are the team to go for in that respect I suppose.

I've already moved on Laporte as I needed the 0.3mn to potentially move Ings to Jimenez with my other transfer.

Stones must be the best pick if you have nailed subs right?
Hes 0,7 cheaper then Laporte.
I have Alonso, Robertsson, Doherty and W-B.

Also if you thinking that maybe this spot could be for Trippier/Bellerin in GW 15 and forward

This for me (but I already have Laporte). It won’t be the first time this season that Benji has been injured and nailed to my bench.

I can take one drop, and need to use the transfer elsewhere. Some good news on Trippier before Mendy is ready to drop for a second time would be very welcome (I wouldn’t shed a tear if Trips dropped again before then, neither :wink: )

Even with a “spare” transfer, I couldn’t see myself opting for a short term (fixtures based) replacement. I get the sense that transfers will be gold over the coming gameweeks, as fixture congestion kicks in.

Gone right down to Bennett, have 2.8m in the bank now & itching to spend it.

Decided it all hangs on Doherty’s fitness for me. I don’t want to bring in Digne and bench Bennett at home to Hudd if Doherty is fit. If Doherty injured then I’ll get Digne and play him and Bennett (alongside Alonso, Robertson and Ederson). If Doherty fit then I’ll bring in Balbuena or Diop for upcoming fixtures.

I know city are city and dominate games and give up few Chances regardless of opposition . But still it’s a tricky little run in terms of playing teams who have a bit of quality in terms of scoring goals. Also ederson seems a bit of a liability

West Ham (A)
Bournemouth (H)
Watford (A)
Chelsea (A)
Everton (H)

So I’m tempted to swerve

Digne seems to be popular but I like the Coleman shout, more goal threat.
