What impact will Berge have on Lundstram and Sheff Utd’s defence?

The arrival of Sander Berge (£5.0m) at Sheffield United has led to further fears for John Lundstram (£5.1m) owners.

Chris Wilder threw the Norwegian defensive midfielder straight into the Blades’ first-team in Gameweek 25 in a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Berge played 68 minutes before being replaced by Lundstram, who has already lost his place to Muhamed Bešić (£4.4m) in Gameweek 24.

With competition for midfield places heating up at Bramall Lane, we’ve researched what Berge will bring to the Premier League.

And while this article acts as a Scout Report on the Blades’ latest recruit, we will also be using it to work out the effect his arrival will have on Lundstram.

The History and Statistics

Berge arrives at Sheffield United as something of a major coup for the newly-promoted club.

The Norwegian midfielder was linked with many of the Premier League’s top clubs during the January transfer window, including Manchester United, while Liverpool and Napoli, who faced him in this season’s Champions League group stages, were also rumoured to be interested in his services.

Not surprisingly, Wilder had to smash the club’s transfer record to bring Berge to Bramall Lane.

Still only 21 years of age, the midfielder has risen to the top end of European football very quickly.

Berge graduated from local side Asker’s academy in 2013 and made his senior debut in the third tier of Norwegian football aged just 15.

Eliteserien outfit Vålerenga signed him for the 2015 campaign, where he made 36 first-team appearances before earning a big move to Belgian club Genk in 2017 – still just 18-years-old.

Despite his tender age, Berge soon a reputation for controlling the midfield with his discipline, ability to read the game and his physical attributes.

His primary role at Genk was to drop deep to win the ball and distribute it quickly to the more creative players around him, helping his team-mates construct effective counter-attacks.

During three years in Belgium, Berge featured heavily, making 73 league appearances, helping Genk to the domestic title and Super Cup in 2018/19 as well as competing in three separate European competitions. 

After two Europa League campaigns, Berge and his Genk team-mates took part in this season’s Champions League, alongside Liverpool, Napoli and Red Bull Salzburg.

Furthermore, Berge has also competed at every age group for the Norwegian international team, right from Under-15s to the senior side, who he debuted for in 2017 and now has 20 caps and one goal.

Securing a player with experience of the very top level in European football, as well as winning titles, especially at such a young age, can only improve a club like Sheffield United, who were competing in League One as recently as 2017.

Furthermore, it should push the Blades onto new heights, as they continue to press home on their chances of qualifying for European football for the first time in their history this season.

“Sander is someone we have known about for quite a while now. We have tracked him over a sustained period of time, he was a player we highlighted as someone who could come in and really improve us and we are thrilled he’s agreed to come here. When we sat down with Sander it was clear that he was really excited about coming here and that was great to see. I think this signing just shows how far we have come in a short space of time, that we are now attracting the likes of Sander to the football club. It’s a brilliant signing for us.” – Chris Wilder

“To win and go fifth in my first game is fantastic. But we cannot stop there. We must push forward. The song is all about playing in Europe next season. That is the ambition.” – Sander Berge

While his mental and physical attributes, as well his ability to dictate play from deep, may improve Sheffield United moving forward, as a defensive midfielder, Berge has never been particularly renowned for goals, netting just six times in three years at Genk. Before that, the youngster never once scored a senior league goal in Norwegian football.

    Here's my problem with the luck v skill debate. It's clearly a skill to be a consistent top10k finisher right? But anyone who is around that rank now (and a fair bit below) is gonna find green or grey arrows a lot easier if they captain Salah for the foreseeable. Doing this for 9 of the next 10 gameweeks is hardly skilful is it, much more respect for those trying to dind someone who can beat Mo but of course they run a much bigger risk of falling down the ranks

      The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all - King Solomon

      You could argue it takes skill to resist the urge to constantly try and find a differential. You can set and forget Salah as captain and find points elsewhere in your other players? I've punted on Barnes over Maddi. In the past four game weeks that's a 20 point swing alone, and I've had an extra 1.7M to spend elsewhere (allowed me to have Robbo and Trent).

      Maybe they were skillfull to be in the position they were in at the start of the season?

      Some people triple captained Mane, which was logical, but it was unlucky. I don't find you get lucky in FF. I find you get unlucky.

        if being boring is a skill then I'm happy to be rubbish

    4. sunnyh
      • 6 Years

      Captaining Salah when he has a see of green fixtures is hardly skillful.

      The skill is consisting getting a player of the supporting cast before they go on a run of form, or dumping a player before they hit a rough patch

      It's a shame Salah got injured because a true test of skill would have been who chose him over Man, as the stats he was posting was likely to make the stubborn Mané (over Salah) owners lose points. The switch to Salah is now easy and obvious for many,

      That said, there is still going to be a test of patience for those who hold Mané, either losing points in the short term or using a sideways transfer.

      There's a skill in the analysis and coming to a sensible decision. But ultimately it's all luck as past information doesn't fully correlate with the future outcome. On average, skilled players will do better of course.

      Captaining Salah is the easy choice but could also be the skilled choice. When the analysis and the casual pick comes to the same conclusion the skill factor is largely irrelevant. Don't overthink and captain random players when Salah is in form.

      • 3 Years

      Also, the clear flaw in the OP argument is that, yes the top 10k will probably be able to finish there if they cap Salah for the rest of the season, but they have earned the right to do that by making the good decisions to get in the top 10k in the first place. It's all about protecting a hard-earned rank.

      We could all cap Salah for the rest of the season if we wanted, but if you haven't made the right calls up until now then you won't get as much benefit from it as those who have.

      I'm not top-10k by the way

      Nonsense

      5 months, 9 days ago

      some are missing my point. Im not saying it isn't skilful to get 10k im saying once there the 'skill' of staying there is boring and I prefer to push on even though know it means more likely to miss out on top 10k

      depends on your team. The more blanks the harder it'll be for those who don't have a free hit or don't wanna use it

    5. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 9 days ago

      We want them to lose for GW31.
      They could both win and still miss GW31 depending on next round like Bobby says, but clarity helps.

    6. Henning
      • 5 Years

      Thanx

    7. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 9 days ago

      If Liverpool are playing in GW31 I'll probably play with 9/10 players and not free hit as they'll make up most of the points as usual. If Liverpool lose then it's almost certainly free hit time.

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 9 days ago

        Yeah, I think this is going to be the template approach for most on here. Particularly those with a Wolves or two already in their back pocket.

      You're probably OK for this week, but would do it if any further drops upcoming

    2. Amey

      If you can afford the drop save probably.
      Newcastle defender is a good addition though as they rotate amazingly well with Southampton defender

    Sorry - repost.
    Gameweek 34:
    Just been reading Ben Crelin's brilliant twitter page on blank and double gameweeks ahead. He says though that in GW34 the FA Cup Semis are followed by a free midweek in which postponed fixtures will slot in to. Does this mean that if any Premiership team is in the semis they will play their GW 34 match in the midweek after the Cup game? Why is this regarded as a possibly blank gameweek then? Sorry if the answer is obvious but I'm genuinely puzzled. Could it even therefore be a double gameweek or is the only DGW in 37?

    1. Rhinos
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 9 days ago

      because to get go the semis you have to play the quarters so there'll be another game to rearrange

      Blank GW28 (EFL Cup Final)
      Blank GW31 (FA Cup QFs)
      Blank and Double GW34 (FA Cup SFs)
      Double GW37
      There'll be another DGW if a team gets 3 postponements

      Don't think Cup SF games automatically played a few days later - depends on other stuff too.

    Sander Berge drops his car off at the garage. “I’ll be back in an hour,” he says.
    He stops at an ice cream shop on the way back. Upon returning, Berge asks the mechanic, “What’s wrong with the car?”
    To which the mechanic responds, “It looks like you blew a seal.”
    Berge frantically replies, “It’s vanilla ice cream, I swear!”

          Shorry, wasn't concentrating. I think you're probably sufficiently City-ed up.
          Don't like Rich from original proposal.

          1. lindeg
            • 1 Year

            Isn't Richarlison the best mid under 9 mil?

    3. Down with this sort of thin…
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 9 days ago

      Nah, I'd hold off on that. Ings and Rich both have good fixtures, with Sterling limping off he could potentially be rested. Looks like he might also drop in price before the deadline so at least wait til then.

      1. lindeg
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 9 days ago

        Mate, I think you might have read it the other way around, I want to do Sterling and Greenwood to Richarlison and Ings for -8

        1. Down with this sort of thin…
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 9 days ago

          Haha, no sweat. Just saw the > and took it to mean 'better/greater than'. How much money are you off getting Aguero? Could get some change from Gazz to Button or Kelly to Tanganga. More hits I know.
          Question is, will you make back the -8 points with Rich and Ings? I think yes, certainly more interesting move than collecting 0 and 1 points from Sterling and Greenwood.

          1. lindeg
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 9 days ago

            I'm 0.4 from Aguero, but I don't think he will be playing much in PL if City makes it far in the CL

            Pep could easily play Kun Jesus Bilva front 3.
            Have also seen KDB play further ahead before.
            Not really sure if this makes Mahrez more secure to start.

              5 months, 9 days ago

              True. Trying to second guess Pep is a nightmare. But based on sheer numbers, everyone else's case for starting has just been strengthened due to Sterling's injury.

    On a WC

    A. Bergwijn + Ings + Traore
    B. Grealish + Jimenez + Barnes

    1. Stram Dunk
        5 months, 9 days ago

        A for me

      • Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 2 Years

        Prefer 2/3 of B

        1. ver_sparda
          • 7 Years

          Bergwijn + Jimenez + Barnes?

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 9 days ago

            Yep. Greal is great, but blank and terrible fixtures.

      • Teror
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 9 days ago

        Out of those two A but I'm skeptical of new, unproven players like Bergwijn. Could be great but could also be not great.

      • TB303
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 9 days ago

        A

      Guys, let's talk about Tanganga.

      4.0, Spurs have good fixtures, Mou Mou seems like he's tightening things up at the back finally, Danny Rose is gone so he should be a regular starter. What's not to like?

      1. La Roja
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 9 days ago

        What has that to do with Danny rose though?

      2. Colby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 9 days ago

        Good post. I was looking at him as a possible transfer target but does Ben Davies who is due back soon play on that side of the field?

      3. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 9 days ago

        Yep, was sceptical at first, but Mou really does seem to have taken a shine to him.

      4. The Champ is here
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 9 days ago

        Bargain. Got him two weeks ago. He will continue to play most games so long as he keeps his form. Threat from sessegnon at left back but is more natural in a back there's anyway

      5. RichardNixon
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 9 days ago

        Isn't Davies back soon? (I have Tanganga)

      2. Teror
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 9 days ago

        Probably this week. Having a pathetic season so I might as well in an attempt to turn it around. At 1 million I've got nothing left to lose.

      3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 9 days ago

        Somewhere between 32 and 36 depending on the BGW/DGW fixtures

          • 9 Years

          Cheers all. I literally have no bench at all:
          Button Kelly Simpson Lundstram
          The winner of a big mini-league I’m in played his around this stage last year. I played mine around 33/34. Just don’t know if it’s worthwhile holding onto it for too long.

          1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

        After gameweek 32 is the plan (maybe after 31 if i decide not to use FH to clear out the crap).

      5. Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years

        GW33 and benchboost in 34.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…

      2. Down with this sort of thin…

        A and B. Think both are capable of double digit returns against any opposition. There aren't many players I'd say that about.

      3. Gudjohnsen

        A and B for me

    6. TB303

      5 months, 9 days ago

      a) Stevens

      c) o'connell

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

        Salah

      2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

            Any ideas?

            First 11:
            McCarthy
            TAA, Aurier, Sidibe
            Salah, Son, Mahrez, De Bruyne, Trossard
            DCL, Firmino

            Bench:
            Martin, Lundstram, Lascelles, Greenwood

            After a maverick wildcard and Trossard captain decision in GW23 that worked out (thank you Pranil for encouraging risks in Meet the Manager), I've been captaining Salah for consistent green arrows, but this gameweek I'm feeling that a possible rotation will hurt Liverpool assets.
            My two questions are: Do I go Son or Mahrez for the captaincy? And do I start switching my bench options with my transfers to get lined up for a Bench Boost or do I just play for the short term fixtures? For example, switching Everton assets for Ings/Rico or waiting it out to upgrade Greenwood/Martin/Lundstram(?) with the imminent Mahrez downgrade funds?
            No money in the bank, got Lundstram at 4.0 GW1, single free transfer.
            Thank you all, hope you have a good gameweek 😀

              If you don't want to captain Mo, I'd go with Son.

                • 1 Year

                My gut says Son too, and I like how he's still a big differential. I'm just mildly worried that if the game gets too easy for spurs, he might get benched early for the CL game midweek.
                This is a tough-easy gameweek. Thanks for the input!

            Moves next GW will likely be Aguero to Vardy and Mahrez to Son (-4)

              Always a bit of rotation in that MF and takes a Liv spot. Attack or defence is the way to go.
