The ScoutCast – Episode Eighty Five – Kolarluv

Aleks Kolarov is a legend around these parts. Two seasons ago I backed the Serbian to shine, only to be left eggy faced as he City man huffed and puffed without impact. Now he’s back and this time it’s personal.

Having crashed the party with a 20-point haul in his last Etihad encounter, Kolarov is being lined up for a start this weekend and even Granville’s taking notice. Having ridiculed my affections for the player and gloried in his failings, the Mancunian has got himself a crush and he’s struggling to fight it off.

This week’s ScoutCast features a lot of Kolarlove, along with the supporting cast of regulars as Granville steals a mini-league march and starts to sound cocky.

Listen in on the Serbian swooning via this link, or stream the episode via the handy player below…

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

    Morning chaps....
    Looks like another defensive crisis on my hands

    Baines
    Saylor (maybe rested)
    Demel (out)
    Clyne
    Gunter (dropped)

    Worth a hit to get another one in??
    I have Begovic in goal

    I'd love a punt on Kolarov, but not really in a position for punts
    3 mil ish spare

      I'd expect Saylor to come back in personally (although that's purely personal opinion, not based on anything solid) so I'd be inclined to ride out the storm this week then sort out Gunter next week.

    Lallana or Walters for a transfer in this week?

    Comparison tool says Lallana in most areas but Walters comes out on top when looking at goal threat. Anyone have any pertinent observations?

        Southampton fixtures are just as nice really, pens would be the deciding factor but that's essentially ALL Walters offers - without them he's utterly pointless (literally 🙂 )

        Hmm, I think I just hate the anti-flair that is Walters.

          I think, like you, I have an unfair bias against the anti-flair of stoke. When ditchwater calms down it will become as dull as them

    i know this sounds desperate.

    But do i play Guthrie?

    I will then have two Reading players in my team(Gorkks too), which i am not comfortable with (monetary issues).

    My alternative is to play Rangel. Peanut suspended/ Demel out.

    What should i do...

    Simpson looks intriguing at 4.8. He was injured but now back fit? Thinking him or Santon.
