Transfers remaining: 3
In the bank: £0.6m
Schmeichel – happy with for now. Two clean sheets out of two game is hard to argue with. However as I long term solution I’d rather have Kepa/Ederson but happy to stick with him for now.
Laporte – stick with
Robertson – stick with
Doherty – stick with
Mane – form has dipped but happy to monitor for now. He’s more than capable with popping up at any time with a couple of goals in a game.
B. Silva – happy with
Maddison – happy with based on his value. If I could move him on I would.
Hazard – happy with
Kane – happy with
Salah – happy with
Aguero – happy with
Ultimately what I’m saying is that I don’t really see any transfers that I’d like to make this week. However my huge concern is Richarlison playing against Cardiff as I know he is highly owned in a mini league I’d like to compete in. I could really do with a reason to take out another player to accommodate him. Ideally if B. Silva doesn’t start at the weekend I could do a straight swap for Richarlison. This would then also free up funds to upgrade Schmeichel to Kepa at a later date. This was my plan anyway but B. Silva hasn’t given me a reason to take him out yet. If B. Silva does start, it’s going to be a tough decision around accommodating Richarlison or not. If I could do a straight swap for Maddison I would make this move, however it’s not within budget without downgrading someone like Schmeichel. This would then also cost me two transfers and another couple to get Kepa in.
I’d be interested in hearing anyone else’s thoughts on this dilemma.
