The ScoutCast – Episode Ninety – Subtle

Maybe I underestimated Granville. Maybe his throwaway comment made at 10.32 on a weary Wednesday evening wasn’t throwaway at all. Maybe Granville is a Fantasy football mind games genius.

Regardless of whether his plan was pre-meditated and devious, it certainly worked as you’ll find out in this, episode ninety of the ScoutCast.

Aside from my sidekick’s scheming, we give dear old Leighton another rinse following his twanged hamstring, tackle the template midfield yet again, check on the market movements in “all aboard” and, of course, look forward to the weekend action. We also start spending points on the ScoutCast team: it’s the slippery slope. Where’s Granville’s genius when you need it?

                  Is Fellani a must again,

                  He has got 2 tough games against City & Tott.

                  I can get him for Mata for free. Has Matas form been a worry in last 3-4 gameweeks. Lot of many have shipped him out. So could be differential.

                  Hernandez from Swansea seems to be a good punt for next week.

                  My rest of team is :
                  Ming,
                  Ridg, Enrique, Rafeal
                  Walcott, Bale, Mata, Sess
                  Fletcher, Augero, Suarez (c)

                  Subs: Jask, Mcnuff, Cameron, Demel

                  Any thoughts Fellani is essential so i can do Mata to Fellani or wait for 2 GWs and then decide.

                  Any thoughts on the same.

                    I would not change tis week. But Mata does have that blank coming up. Seems Fellaini is non-stop scoring.

                    Hi everyone, looking for some thoughts on my team.

                    Jaaskelainen • Begovic
                    Shorey • Baines • Cuellar • Wisdom • Hughes
                    Sessegnon • Puncheon • Mata • Morrison • Bale
                    Ba • Van Persie • Berbatov

                    2 FT, £1.6m in the bank.

                    Which choice looks best?

                    a) Baines + Ba → WBA defender/Enrique (already have Wisdom)/Nastasic + Suarez - which one?
                    b) Jaask → Mignolet
                    c) Mata → anyone
                    d) Baines + Mata → 2 replacements.
                    e) something else

                    Thanks in advance. 🙂

                          baines + mata + ba > nastasic + walcott + suarez (-4) imo

                          if you don't want to take a hit then go with option a and then ditch mata next gw

                                            but money's getting tight with mata dropping tonight and silva probably up tomorrow... teicky

                                                i've been suggesting for people to transfer him out for a couple weeks (even a week or two before he started getting rotated) because of chelsea's tough run of fixtures and i had a feeling that their form would drop off and something like this would happen (though I didn't expect RDM to get fired quite so quickly).

                                              Walcott not playing is a possibility. Might wait like you said.

                                                    Jones may be a rotation risk now. Morrison over Sterling anyday. Rather Berba over Ba long term.

                                                    pros: pens, fk's, corners, gets forward a lot.

                                                    still thinking the cons outweigh the pros. and we can always bring him back later

                                                                                                        If it's the latter I hope he reviews all of Mata's games for the last 10 weeks... rotation drives me mad...
