Marcos Alonso could he play left wing?
As a defender He won pb last year. He won pb this year. He'll win pb next year.
Won 10p in divs
That's a yield of 14%
Pb average of 108!
Top scores of 240, 237 and 218
Should be enough to win star man on any day.
but was actually unlucky not to win more divs with 13 scores over a 150
and 3 over 175 in 35 games.
He will surely play that many next season and hopefully the new manager plays wingbacks and his numbers could be even more impressive.
Scored 4 goals and got 5 assists in a more conservative role this year.
Second most shots out of any defender last year with 52 so goals weren't flukes.
Think he's a good buy. Big upside.
A new dynamic could be the fact that chelsea have no eden hazard. Could alonso sometimes play on the left wing? They only have willian who can play there. But both him and pedro are old and will be injured at times. Whoever is fit out of them will play RW and Alonso could slot in on the left.
I'd worry that his output would drop off quite significantly now that he won't have Hazard ahead of him down the left this season..
Buy the dip.
A dip that really doesn't make sense in my eyes. Massive overreaction.
@LuaLua I've been toying with the idea of buying both him and Emerson. I can see them sharing game time but Emerson at 62p also has a similar yield with 10p of divs.
Thinking to buy them both and then not worry too much about which one plays or any rotation.
@Cadbury1 Good point. However would you be shocked if they put Alonso on the wing for a few games. I wouldn't. That would be massive.
Hi future at Chelsea is uncertain, have been a few reports of him wanting to move to Spain.
Been looking at alonso for a while one of the best goal scoring and assisting defensive players in this era.
For the vacant lm/w position I think Tammy could be given a chance out on the left as he could play there as well as maybe Pedro or William on the wrong wing.
Was also thinking Kenedy is a great chance at just 23 years old on paper is the only current fit left winger in the squad surely they can’t loan him again , at just 34 p looks a good punt to me can’t see much wrong. If not he could get another loan move although he didn’t have the most successful with Newcastle was still average.
@WithoutLimit don’t see Chelsea allowing him to leave at the moment, if not he would probably earn even more pb in Spain as less competition
with the transfer ban he ain't leaving I don't think.
Chelsea have already said no-one else will be leaving on a permanent basis while the appeal/transfer ban is in place.
Turned down bids from Barcelona for Willian already this summer.
I don't see Alonso leaving until next summer, if at all. Definitely one I am keeping an eye on ahead of the new season - have all my money tied up at present but he will be part of my portfolio soon enough.
Absolute steal at this price. I held for a good time last season and sold up a bit before the end of the season. Deffinately back in on him now.
@WithoutLimit If he moves to Spain, what is the difference?
Won't be leaving this summer.. great price!!
He seemed to lose a lot of game time to Emerson at the back end of last season, do people exppect him to play most games, I'd think his price decrease was a result of being benched fairly often?
@Webbinho Sarri wasn’t too fond of him preferred Emerson he is like that , simmilar with believing Kante wasn’t good enough to play cdm
@Webbinho He had an injury backend of last season. Which didn't help. I expect him to be first choice LB next season but there's no gurantee.
I don't watch chelsea but whoscored ratings are in favour of alonso.
In title run in and europa latter stages rotation is expected hard to tell who exactly was number 1 but I think thats why he's a cheap price and no risk with no reward. Seeing he was injured sealed it for me. Think he'll be numero uno next season. But both could have good yields either way tbh.
Also the tiny chance he could play LW for like two games lol made me want to buy him as if that happens one game he'll shoot up.
Anyone here still on Alonso , I still have a small amount stagnating wondering wheather I should just cut my small loss and move on a very boring hold as he doesn’t play
I had a 100 awhile back, initially grew then dipped. I made a decision to get rid and invest elsewhere.
Anyone thinks he could ever get a way back into Chelsea team he’s not too old
Sold up because of Emerson continually getting the nod, I did have high hopes considering last seasons data! Should Emerson pick up a knock though I’ll be sure to jump on again.
