Mendy

Recommended Posts

We should offer a new contract just in case someone bids for him and we get something.

 

He'd be an excellent free transfer in the market, hope he wants to stay for another year at least.

Very strong but short but then so is Kante .Never going to match Wilf in the air though. If we had another tall midfielder that wouldn't be a problem.

Well he wasn’t last season......perhaps he’s done some gym work since then .....not seen enough of him to judge

Like a lot of short footballers you have to work hard on strength training and he looks pretty solid on the ball now.

Last night was a typical example of Mendy, and probably why we shouldn't get him on a longer contract. Got himself back involved in the first team, having a good game and then gets injured.

He was superb last night, more effective infact than Ndidi was when he came on. Ndidi had a rusty game by his standards (fair enough given his injury) but just showed what an asset Mendy could have been for us in other circumstances. We will lose him for nothing in the summer and he will be a shrewd signing for almost all french sides. We have little chance of keeping him I think.

Any newly promoted side would be wise to snap him up, fans want big money signings but players like Mendy keep you up.

Not sure about that. He’s good, but it’s thing to look great surrounded by quality, but may be an entirely different proposition on a struggling team.

40 odd games for us since joining 3 or 4 seasons ago, loaned out and just 27 years of age. Id give him another deal because he gives us that "Quarter=back" player who can pass the ball and tick things over. OK defensively he wont offer anything in either box and winning the ball isnt his strength but he is competent and an option. I think he is more useful against teams who sit deep as he can dictate play. The thing is I cant see him staying as at 27, he will attract a decent club and a strong salary/signing on fee as a Bosman.

He played well on Wednesday before limping off, actually drove forward on a couple of occasions, unfortunately I think he’ll be gone in the summer purely to get more game time, at 27 he needs to be more than a bit part player.

4-6 weeks out as well :mellow: thought he looked tidy against West Ham as well considering he hasn’t had it easy.

Well he certainly won’t be loaned out anywhere !

The beauty of Mendy is that he's a pass forward first midfielder. Most midfielders these days seem to pass backwards first.

Hard to score goals if you can't keep the ball. Mendy knows how to keep the ball and direct it to a teammate who is in a position to assist in scoring goals.

Reminds me of Joe Allen at Swansea/Liverpool. Doing the dirty work that is only respected by his manager and teammates.

Like you say the ball will be in his court come the summer.He will be able to command a decent wage from any possible suiter.We were never going to recoup any money for him this transfer window.Rodgers has said he’ll be off at the end of the season,but will use him up until then.He knows the lad needs first team football,though I hope he changes his mind.Mendy must be gutted he’s gone and got injured.

Agree! But point remains that not even Mendy can "keep" the ball forever or in isolation. Ultimately, there have to be enough quality players to move it onto. Solid player nonetheless.

I don't understand the calls for a contract extension, he's been nothing more than ok since he signed. He does seem better than Choudhury at the moment specifically receiving the ball from defence and moving the ball but that's not enough to keep hold of him. He's also injury prone look what happens when asked to play a few games.

Doubt he will be here next season. His missus has moved back to France as I believe she's pregnant and they want to move back if he doesn't get an extension.
