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.

    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. 🙂

          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).

                wish i could say the same but im on an awful drop. 4 losses in a row I think putting me at 6-8 as well. this week was infuriating though as i lost to Parm by ONE point. and i'd considered but decided against pienaar to walcott for a hit which would have won me the match by a point. so depending on how other people did i could be in the relegation zone...

          I like Enrique - OOP playing very advanced and has some decent fixtures. Was unlucky not to score in last game.

    Many folked shipped Mata then? Out of favour with Benitez? Or just finding the right mix?

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

    Id really appreciate some input:

    Bego Jaask

    Rafael Cuellar Boyce Gorkss Demel

    Santi Michu Fellaini Johnson Routledge

    Berba RvP Fletcher

    1 FT and 6.1 in the bank.

    Michu Berba > Walcott and Suarez or Bale and Suarez for a hit?

    Or just Berba to Suarez and one of the two next week?

    Or something else?

    How nailed on is Defoe now Ade is back from suspension.? I am thinking of bringing him in GW17 but AVB almost always plays 1 up top. Will he play 4-4-2 or just not play Ade.
