Seems daft having held on to him to get rid of Hazard ahead of games against Bournemouth and Huddersfield, but not having Salah is not going well for me...
Is it a necessary move? And thoughts on the Richarlison replacement if so?
I read recently somewhere here "those who still not have Salah should have a good look at theirselves in the mirror
" (or somehting like that, and this was the kind version)
Others are stil going on a No-Salah-project, or even sold him recently
I might have done wrong choices, especially since december,
but until GW15 my season was decent (by my standards), and I didn't feel that not having Salah all season had harmed me
Indeed in first 15 GWs Salah tallied 90p, exactly 6.0ppg
Without going into a deep analysis, it wasn't blatantly wrong trying to find a bit better value in other premiums at a bit lower price than his 13.x m
Then in the 8 GWs since, he scored 87p for a 10.9ppg, with 6 double-digit hauls except vs the two Manchester clubs.
His next fixtures don't seem significantly tougher than the past 6 where he hauled...
So, bringing him now, if not 11ppg, can we expect 9-10ppg, or even just 8?
That would justify 13.5m, while not having him begins to deal heavier damage, whereas up to gw15 you could claim that you were on par, going just different paths
with 2FT, the quickest path now to get Salah for me is
Alonso Tomkins (or 4.3m equivalent)
0 ITB left
I know, renouncing to Sterling is a taxing toll,
I also have Hazard, but selling him to keep Raheem would require me to find 0.2m more funds (2.5m instead of 2.3m)
the alternatives to selling Alonso to find the 2.3m, wolud be
- FAnderson to 5.0 Mid (Kanté? March? McArthur? Neves?)
- Richarlison to 4.4 Mid (McNeil??? Gunnarson?)
- Kun to 8.9 F1 (...Vardy
) for a weak frontline completd now by Jiménez and Mitro
- Selling Haz too to 8.7 Mid (Pogba? going from Stering+Hazard to Salah+Pogba...
