Very quick post to outline a possible second transfer. I’ll be checking the line up for Man City tomorrow afternoon. If B. Silva is dropped down to the bench again, I’ll be bringing in De Bruyne to replace him – on the assumption that De Bruyne is also starting. The reason being De Bruyne has made a fantastic start to the season and should continue to rise in price for the short term. I also don’t want 4.5m tied up in a player who’s at risk of being left on the bench so Silva would have to go given that he would have only started 1 out of 3 games. So here’s the transfer:
If B. Silva is on the bench but De Bruyne starts:
Silva out, De Bruyne in
If B. Silva starts:
Make no transfer
If both start on the bench:
Make no transfer
If I’m being honest, the situation I’d like to pan out is that B. Silva starts as I don’t see it as much of an upgrade if both players are getting regular game time. For those wondering why I’m going for De Bruyne over Mane – at this stage City have better fixtures. I also don’t have a City striker in my team so to offset this I wanted to double up on their midfielders. I do have a plan for getting Mane in – which would be swapping Aubameyang/Moura for Martial/Mane but this will have to wait for the time being as both Aubayemang and Moura have performed well so far anyway.
I won’t be making any other transfers this weekend – unless a player has picked up a shock injury before any of the games kick off over the weekend.
Finally a quick note on the Gomez to Mina transfer – incredibly frustrating that Everton conceded twice against Villa. That would highlight why I didn’t opt for an Everton defender at the start of the season – I thought they’d proved me wrong with two clean sheets in two games however this typically came to an end when bringing in one of their defenders. Regardless it’s a hard transfer to regret – Mina is incredibly cheap at 2.1m and I’d expect him to continue to rise in value. For this outlay I’d imagine he will easily return enough points over the season to justify a place in the team. If their form does drop off completely there’s a few good options in Walker-Peters, Mount, James, Emerson, etc so no need to panic at this stage.
