Papy Mendy

Recommended Posts

Mendy has played well, gives us another option and saves us spending a small fortune on a replacement. He looks like he’s lost weight and enjoying his footy....

If we’re really only going to get 5m to 10m for him I’d much rather keep him. He’s a decent player, good attitude and reliable.

I dont think this is the issue. I think he personally wants to be first choice somewhere which is fair enough

If he wants to go then fair enough. He’s unlikely to be first choice, but I suspect he has a part to play if he chooses to stay.

Rodgers said after the game last night he tends to overload the squad with midfield players, but he didn't exactly deny Mendy leaving. Having said that, Amartey playing with the U23s tonight while the likes of King were with the seniors suggests he's not wanted either. James still won't be fit for the Stoke and Rotherham games so he has missed what little chance he had to get back into contention.

 

If Mendy goes, that leaves us with Ndidi, Choudhury, Tielemans and Maddison, with another no.8 expected to come in. That to me doesn't sound like an overload, so does that open the door to King or Silva to stay?

If another club comes in for him with a decent offer for him then fair play, but he's far from deadwood. He's been good servant despite trying circumstance when he first arrived but has shown to plenty of us that he's good at the DM role. And as shown under Rodgers that he's a fantastic water carrier to keep the ball and move it about against lesser opposition or brought on in the second half, to calm things down and keep it tight when we don't need the destructive rhythm stopper of Ndidi or to help him see the game out against tougher teams.

At least somebody else has their thinking cap on...I wonder at how easy

some posters first thought are sending ,

"Their own" considered access on loan.

 

We need a midfield coverage presence..

Mendy is one of that 1st choice-covering player,over a full season. That means anything from 16-25 games at least.

Either from the bench,or 1st choice on rotation days...most likely a good % more than King,Silva,and a distant James,who won't be simply dumped.

 

Amartey...don't think too much!!..to counter your thought!!  Amartey has just returned after a long injury absence,he needs games in those legs,to do catch-up!!  I am sure he will be somehow involved in all types of games before

Season begins.

 

Like the Harry gossip..Mendy ain't gone yet!! Plus agreeing to let a player talk to a club and leave,is a long way from "wanting" that player to leave.

no disrespect to King as he has been a great servant to the club but Mendy is miles ahead of him and we should be looking to keep him.

It would suggest the dreaded midfield diamond is going to rear it's head this season.

Amartey is still gaining fitness after his injury I think, that's why he played with the U23s

I can't see it. We haven't got enough strikers to play it regularly, and it massively exposes the lack of pace of Tielemans who I assume would play one side of the holding player and have to shuttle across to cover the full-back. It might be an option if all of our wingers are crap, but to have 4 wide players all not playing would be pretty bizarre.

Agreed. I think King goes if we get a no.8 in (Praet, McGregor etc.), and then it's between Mendy and Silva as to which deep lying ball recycler we keep.

But why did he go to Leuven with them when he could have got minutes at Cambridge? I suppose a lot of the fringe players only got half an hour on Tuesday, but you'd think he'd be around the seniors still ahead of the split games on Saturday.

 

I'd like to see him stay, purely for his versatility. I'm just not sure where he gets consistent gametime anymore.

Don't worry Brendan will get it sorted .!!

Or injuries will force the sorting and any

Fret of not sure...!!!

Got injured today. Could scupper any possible transfer.

Surely the fact he played suggests a deal wasn’t close.

Maguire played as well, but if you listen to the media (I dont by the way) hes pretty much signed for United.

If you don't listen to them, how do you know that's what they're saying?
