The ScoutCast – Episode 69 – Bye Bye Baby

With a stork delivery just around the corner, I drag Mark, nappies and all, into the studio for one more ScoutCast before the little time thief bundle arrives.

Keeping my distance, despite getting over the worst of my stinker that had me bed-ridden last week, I find time to lament my latest “miffed”, torment Mark about his belated sale of Victor Moses and gloat just a little about closing the mini-league gap via Clint Dempsey’s haul.

The regulars are all present and partially correct, delivered in husky tones, fuelled by Lemsip. Other cold cures are available. Other chaotic Fantasy Football podcasts aren’t.

                  1) aguero + McClean or
                  2) Dzeko + Sess ?

                  Rest of mids and forwards are:
                  Silva, Bale, Valencia , Dempsy
                  RVP & Ba.
                  Thoughts appreciated.

                              after this week you will probably bench sess over your other options anyway. may as well use mcclean in that role and get the better quality everyweek striker.

                              Aguero IMO safer and I feel he has a lot of opportunity to score over next few wks, your mf is strong anyway so you'll need a bencher, no point in trying to bench a heavyweight each week, it'll wreck your head esp if there's pts on that bench .

                                  i am thinking along the same lines as well.
                                  and Aguero is worth the armband, but Dzeko ??

                                    Rvp untill aguero shows us different , that's where im at.

                                            With Balotelli sidelined Dzeko will get his playtime, and he can score as many as Aguero. Sessegnon is even better value at the moment!

                                            change your subs order.
                                            Morison should be first. ( Norwich can score goals and Morison is always in the mix)
                                            And i fency Swansaa to shout out chelsea more than Newcastle aginst Blackburn).
                                            You may even play morsion ahead of HBA.

                                                    its a tough call, Blackburn are leaky at the back, so probably play HBA.
                                                    and Morison as first sub and caulker ahead of simpson. ( Blackburn usually score at home).

                                                      if hes starting mignolet, then morison would counter that CS potential. Id play bafa, may as well try to get use out of him while you can.

                                                          So, barca are now 7 points behind madrid, obviously too early to write them off but if barca only win the copa del ray, I don't think messi will win the ballon'd'or or at least I hope not.

                                                              copa del rey + champions league + club world cup + european super cup + spanish super cup = he will probably win it again.

                                                                                                                  And Stoke's lovely fixtures are part of the dilemma and Walters rotates well with Sess.

                                                                                                                  My original plan was no hit this week and then b) next but Rooney's potential absence forced my hand somewhat this week as I couldnt afford to have him on the bench.

                                                                                                                  I dont think Best will do anything, he was just a placeholder until Ba came back.

Your team is solid mac, you know more than most what your doing stick with your gut, it's usually what I do and I find things have a habit of working themselves out.

It helps me to keep a proper perspective.

Your defense is very similar to what my WC defense will be, although I see you have gone for triple rotation with Evans playing ever game, not a bad option.

                                                                                                                                Open Controls

                                                                                                                                    Main doubt for me is Walters, is Sinclair or indeed Dempsey a better bet?

Its either Dempsey or Walters, obviously you save money with Walters so it depends if your happy with where that is spent. I have gone for Dzeko over Aguero in order to afford Dempsey.

MUN/NEW and STO/FUL both rotate very well. Only avoided STO/FUL because I see both Shotton and Kelly as not entirely nailed on.

The other issue is choosing who to bench. Ba this week and probably Dempsey the following week as they play City. It could be problematic but it means I have a descent player who can play if someone gets injured or is a doubt

On the few occasions the other two are bad fixtures, playing Rangel at home is a nice thought. Have tried to make my defenders as attacking as possible.
