Mendy to ?

Post by Mins » 22 Sep 2018, 10:08

Like a lot of managers I have Mendy. I also have a 5 - 3 - 2. Which means I can swap Mendy to any other player in any other position as long as it's not more than 4.1m. I'm thinking one of the cheapo midfielders rather than a cheapo defender but am interested to see what others would do / slash are doing.

Assume you have Robertson and Alonso?? Richarlison back this weekend...

Formation is irrelevant, you want the best players (but you already know that)

This injury feels like 1 that will drag on for weeks. City have difficult fixtures coming and i expect rotation with the Champions League. As a single entrant (I am in the fiso League) he is a definite sell for me. I will get a cheap midfielder moving to 4-4-2

Thanks Murf and Sieben. 53 views but only 2 replies. I get the feeling a lot of people have this dilemma but don't want to share their thoughts. I have Alonso and Robertson and am a single entrant too. Didn't realise Richarlison was back so soon. As Everton play tomorrow this gives me more time to think it over / not do anything as well...

Have mendy and Pedro

If I swap at all , it will be to hazard. But that leaves just £2.5m.
Already have coady so would be going for Bennett- and debating whether 2 wolves defenders is inspired or deranged. After Man U today, fixtures are good. But a tough call.

Maddison, Richarleson could be decent options that also free up a bit of cash but I voted for a defender.

That is possibly a little unfair. If a lot of people are like me, they have this dilemma but can't even make up their own minds, let alone being in a position to post a firm view. Personally I haven't got a clue. Mitrovic appeals, but the reason, that he will make viewing the Fulham v Watford game more interesting, isn't really good enough for me to express an opinion.

Blue Peter - Wan Biscuit and Hazard

I’ll be mainly bringing Richarlison back but will throw the odd Mitrovic in.

Not a dilemma for me. In fact it has solved a huge dilemma that I DID have - how to shoehorn in Alonso!!

Already have the biscuit- so another reason to question the move, as that 3 sub £2.8m defenders!

I am looking at the cheap mids- mainly between Fraser 3.4 and Maddison 3.0.Favouring Fraser at the moment.

I’m going Mitrovic. In part because future plans will probably bring in Fraser or another cheap mid in a couple of weeks

Mitrovic looks a sound move with decent fixtures and an attack minded team.

Fraser might be more patchy than Maddison but both look good VFM, probably going Maddison in that he's cheaper and is the Mahrez of Leicester now on set pieces and pens I believe and involved in everything positive they do.

I've had to get rid of Coleman too in teams so I've put in a combo of Mitrovic and Maddison/Fraser (X1).

I went to Maddison to free up funds to upgrade Jota or to fund a move for Hazard.

I was tempted as allowed me Hazard without an unneeded sub of another playing(?) player.

I didn’t actually get rid in the end. Managed to score the magic 50pts even with him in my team. Thinking Maddison is the guy to go for now, but won’t worry about that until next Friday. Cheers to all for the honest feedback.

I’m a bit late in contributing to this but I did mainly Mitro’s and a couple of Maddison’s.They feel ok so far. In the teams where I retained formation (but couldn’t afford Alonso) I did Trippier which I don’t feel as good about.

I managed to achieve a completly Mendyless state over the course of the weekend. If he is back any earlier than Saturday week I’ll be annoyed.

If Mendy's still out this Saturday at 3pm I am going for Maddison probably. From what I have seen of the Leicester games he is involved in a lot of things and could be a solid 5 points a week type player. Need to have a little cash in the bank as well plus 5 defs just doesn't feel right to me.

Agreed and I also find 5 defenders somewhat disconcerting! Leicester have a 10 game run as good as anybody so can leave him be for a while and use the cash elsewhere.

Having forgotten to bring in Rich, I may well remember to do it this weekend.

You two are a bit late on the Maddison train? And yep it all goes through him, he is very good, and on set pieces. With 2 KC's he is almost a must have, imho - not so much if just 1 Assister ie FPL where Vardy may be better.

On the train since week 3. 2/5/10/10 is more than could have expected. Yes Vardy also a viable option. Have also thrown Chilwell into the mix but too early to judge if Leicester's lack of clean sheets to date negate any assists he might contribute during their 'good' run of games.
