Fraser is your classic 'never captain never bench' player.
My plan for the last few weeks has been to ditch Fraser the moment the fixtures turned. Which is right now. I even have two transfers to do some shimmying around should I wish to up or downgrade him. I was also hoping a similar priced player would come in to form at the time, and like a beacon of hope, Ross Barkley appears. One of the heroes of my 2k overall finish from a couple of years ago. And it looks like he might have claimed a starting place in the Chelsea first team.
So obviously I've thrown my plan completely out of the window and transferred out Mitrovic before his game against Huddersfiled and upgraded one of my 4.0 defenders to Mendy. I could have done many more sensible things with my transfer. Mane in for Hazard, switch Walker to Mendy, do the planned Fraser to Barkley. Switch Richarlison for Barkley and TAA for Rudiger. But no, now I'm playing 4-4-2 with double Liverpool and double City defence. And Liverpool are playing Arsenal.
I may very well be mad, and this may be the result of me being bored of playing safe all season, but I think It might work out if I have patience. This is definitely the time to ditch the third striker. There are only 4 strikers in the top 30 scoring players in the game. Four! That's crazy. So Mitrovic is gone because he's done nothing for weeks and Fulham look absolutely awful. Defenders are still scoring points all over the shop. Liverpool and City have the best defences in the league by far. Double double is definitely overkill, but I can easily swap any of them out if I need to.
This may be a case of right move wrong decision, and I don't think I would have done it without a wildcard left, but I'm willing to experiment for a few weeks.
