Will Kylian Mbappe Ever Be A Good PB Performer?
How did the weekend go for you? PB wise, Maxime Lopez came good on Friday and Maddison (Saturday) as well as Gio Lo Celso yesterday came close.
Most dissapointingly was the unusual benching if Kylian Mbappe. Any ideas why? Tuchel is not beyond draconian disciplining of his players. What had Mbappe done?
Indeed Mbappe is a hotly debated FI topic. Will he ever be a regular PB challenger and dividend winner? Is he value for money? Is he helped or hindered by Neymar? Should the PB matrix be changed to suit superstars like him?
I wrote about Mbappe for a previous blog post and where I saw his future as a PB performer. Have a read and let me know what you think!
Any tips, comments or questions then let me know. Coming next on the blog will be a focus on Corentin Tolisso and then a comparison of James Maddison and Kai Havertz. Who's better?
All the talk has been about neymar taking mbappe’s pb potential, that argument is blown out of the water as he hasn’t played for months.
MB, non happening either.
Everyone make their own minds up.
@Tom77 Agreed. Neymar actually helps Mbappe's PB.
@FIGenesis They've as good as won the league, so time to give other players a chance?
@Ollie That's what I thought but they played Choupo up front with Nkunku (who is leaving for Rennes most likely). I was hoping they'd give Diaby a shot but no such luck!
What's happened to Di Marie, I buy 100 shares in him and he not been seen since and a 7p drop....
Be reight, I have 3 years for his price to go up again :-)
Honest question. Is there something about the way he plays that isn't compatible with PB? I've only seen snippets if him in the world cup and champs league but can't see why he wouldn't be a good PB player.
Swear the Betis manager has shares in De Paul, he takes Lo Celso off with 15mins to go needing just 9 more points. The poor bloke was on a hat-trick as well!!
@Ollie True, the season is over to PSG as there is no competitor with them in Ligue 1. There is only a cup final for PSG, but that is a non-PB match. So technically, I dont see any exceptional PB for him. Now is too early for the summer transfer MB as the Media is focusing on European cups and other more interesting leagues.
Similar to Neymar, Di Maria, Sancho, etc.; their drops are foreseeable to me!
@Millerman Exactly right. He should continue to be a value buy for PB......if he stays at PSG!
@NewUser303261 The PB matrix heavily favours guys who get the ball a lot and move it around. Mbappe doesn't do much passing in each game as he plays right up top at the moment so he is heavily reliant on goals to win PB on any given day. His average PB is improving all the time though. (now over 100) which helps. I am confident he will be a really solid PB player in a year or so.
@AT10 I know! Was gutted. Lo Celso is an excellent player and his PB friendly stats. He'll be back!
Hi Football indexers, Mbappe I’m told as been
Turning up for training late so maybe that’s why he’s on the bench. Trying to force through a move to Real maybe.
Or it could be as someone has already said, just giving others a run out.
@NewUser21073 That could be huge!!!!
He has previous, although it took over 5 months for the papers over here to find out last time...
Late in October, stories reported in March this year.
@GregF Wow! I hadn't seen these. Add that to his dropping for the last game and maybe there is some truth to the fact he has had his head turned! A summer saga maybe?
