    How to cover for Debuchy's ban?

    Nobody's going to dump him and lose millions for one game... My 'problem' is minor, but keeping Kompany @ 6.6 and Debuchy certainly leaves no defensive cover for Ben Davies, Nasty and Joel Ward. I'm assuming Pellegrini's 1st choice CB's (when fit) are Kompany & Nastasic, although he does have plenty of options, some proving to be very dodgy indeed! Nasty's value doesn't offer many decent alternatives, and the nuclear option of dumping both to bring in the wonderful Curtis Davies h) C Palace @ 10.9m (for an av. of 8.9 pts) leaves just 5.91m, and for that money there's only really my old pal Steven Reid as defensive sub cover. Mind you, I do want to buy Billy Jones back when he's fit, simply because I think defenders who can get good 'incidental' points w/o c/s's in unfashionable sides like Palace, Hull & WBA are being undervalued by Yahoo! compared to the 'big' names who for whatever reason don't seem able to make a tackle or an intercept to save their lives! Oh, and I think I know why Yahoo! didn't give Reidy those 2 c/s's last season, remember? If you look at the official Barc FPL game, yep! He's classed as a midfielder! So I'm guessing Yahoo! & Barc share a data bank of player's positions and have their wires crossed.
