While I was “driving home for Christmas”, Granville was recovering from a breathless double Gameweek that left him just above the average; his humble target achieved, he’s now got to patch up his injury ravaged squad and contend with all my crazy Wildcard talk.

Wayne Rooney’s form is the catalyst for such a revolution in my squad, as we discuss the benefits of doubling up on the United men up top. There’s the usual foray into the transfer market with “all board”, the preview of the weekend fixtures and the latest attempt to revive the corpse of the ScoutCatst team: Granville is the surgeon this week and he’s spending some points.

  1. Why are people keen to stick with Theo?

    "Walcott we don't know" doesn't sound that encouraging. Surely you would want to hear something a bit more positive that hints of a start?

    1. Asking myself that very question, as I've foolishly held him the past two weeks thinking he might somehow get healthy. The upcoming fixtures for him are favorable and should he play tomorrow, I might be convinced to hold him... especially now that it looks like I'll have to do something about Fellaini. Ugh.

    Which option is better?

    A) Suarez + Rooney + Snodgrass

    B) Suarez + Ba + Bale

    ***Third forward is RVP

    C) No RVP- Suarez + Rooney + Torres + Bale

    D) No RVP- Suarez + Rooney + Defoe + Mata

    Thanks

  3. Hi everyone,
    Who is better Snodgrass or Nolan, one is on form the other isn't and both have relatively tough fixtures in the next couple of GW's.
    Cheers

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. Yeah fixtures would put me off both of those, duff?

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
  4. Please give thoughts on Damien Duff? seriously considering bring him in as mid priced midfielder

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  5. Hi ninja. .I am torn just like you, duff is an option but prone to rotate a bit despite his better fixtures.Snodgrass has two decent fixtures and then as toughies. Tough to decide. Snodgrass is more nailed on

  9. WHY IS THERE NO TALK ABOUT ROONEY BEING A MAJOR DOUBT AFTER MISSING THREE DAYS TRAINING THIS WEEK?? “HE’S IN THE SQUAD, I’LL PUT IT THAT WAY” ACCORDING TO FERGUSON. WELL DONE SCOUT. BRAVOOO. PROBABLY GET A RUN OUT AND RUIN MY CPT POINTS. In bloody fairness like.

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
