    Thoughts on Mamadou Sakho (Liverpool)?

    Should I wait and see how he performs or start him now? priced at 7.36 he may be a steal.

    • Well A Yahoo! User, good question. A few things to bear in mind, he's young, Liverpool have decent centre backs already and they've got 3 c/s's w/o him. So there's no emergency, he's relatively inexperienced and do they really need him in right now? Oh, and is he any good? lol ... Is he better than what's in already?
      I certainly didn't even consider him when deciding to sell Phil Jones and bring in Joel Ward of Crystal Palace for 9.01m. I want to see the stat's of a defender ... ie are they a nailed-on starter? Do they win tackles? Block shots? Intercept passes? Get booked? Give away pen's? Are they any good? It's not just about looking at a team and thinking will he get c/s's? Have a good think, find out more about him on the web, then have a look at him on telly. It's a long hard season, this is wk4, there's plenty of time to #$%$ him and make a decision ... even if that means paying a little bit more. On the other hand if like me, you want 5 good defenders in your squad, then you can afford to buy him now, stick him on the bench, and if he's good ... bring him on in future games.
