Out of his pajamas and back in the studio, Granville and I reconvene after another dull international break to resume ScoutCast duties.

Arsenal’s new playmaker dominates, with the pair of us coveting Santi Cazorla’s charms and competing for his affections, whilst, in the back of our minds, wondering if we’re being taken in.

Robin Van Persie also gets some oxygen – don’t worry, that’s not oxygen treatment – he’s just the subject of this week’s discussion as we chew the fat on the “essential” debate that appears to rage on as the Gamweek’s roll by. The regulars all find their place amongst the merriment, as heat is turned up on the mini-league and mini-game struggle between myself and Mancunian magic man.

  2. Pratik if you're still about, could we start a Doubles league? Starting maybe GW10. I quite enjoy listening to the scoutcast combined team bit, and would fancy it as well.

    1. Nice idea!!!

      So everyone pairs up and manages a separate team together?

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. It worked well with the Euro's so I say go for it.

  4. repost shame from previous page....

    Worth doing any transfers to this lot? Options I’m considering are:

    a) Tevez -> Berba (leaves enough for Michu -> Santi, or Suarez -> Aguero next week)

    b) Tevez -> Giroud (leaves enough for Michu & Suarez -> Santi & Ba (or Walters & Aguero) next week for a hit)

    c) Save the transfer and do Michu & Suarez -> Santi & Berba next week for free.

    Jaask, (Fed)
    Baines, Hughes, Cuellar, (McCartney), (Clyne)
    Bale, Barfa, Michu, Pienaar, (Guthrie)
    RVP(c), Suarez, Tevez
    Bank 0.5m, 1 freebie

  5. May I make a bold statement?

    ... Thanks.

    At some point this season there will be a Jonjo Shelvey bandwagon.

    "The jolly green giants are coming to play against us tomorrow," said Sir Alex Ferguson at his press conference ahead the Stoke game.

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. Is Lambert finished at Southampton as far as Adkins is concerned?

      (Doesn't look good for Bent)
