The ScoutCast – Episode Ninety Three – Wrapped Up

Possibly the most un-Christmas-like Christmas Podcast we’ve ever recorded, thanks mainly to Granville being banned from editing in the entire MP3 of Dean Martin’s “Let it Snow” but also because neither of us had time to sort our pressies. To be fair, I’m surprised that Granville felt an ounce Christmas spirit after Santi’s showing at Reading opened up a 40-point “chasm” in our min-league. Do I have it all wrapped up already?

To his credit, my co-host takes it all on his bearded chin, joining me to discuss the Felliani fallout, its impact on the transfer trends in “all aboard”, a preview of the weekend fixtures and provided his assistance in the management of the ScoutCast team: an outfit which plundered no less than 80 points thanks to Santi’s haul and Reading’s bulging net.

Unitie the bow and rip this one open via this link, or stream the merriment via the player below…

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

      Fixture yes. What about form?

      Hope you are right and he does well as I have him but its RVP captain for me.

        He's had the most shots (both total and on target I think) without scoring in the last 4 gameweeks, if there's an explosion imminent table for forwards I'm sure he'd be top of that. But we knew that anyway, it's Suarez!

        I think the main argument against him is that he's had a run of blanks. But the stats say that can't last, and his play against leaky Fulham isn't going to be influenced by his FPL history!

          That's fair enough mate. I don't have access to the stats as I'm not a member.

          Lets hope he does well then.

      Yer looks OK, think Stoke are going to limit Defoes and Bales scoring this week. Hopefully Silva is enough City coverage, Im going with just him.

        Yeah it's a tough fixture for Spurs, could easily end up 0-0 but just hoping I get lucky for once to be honest.

        Silva was all I could do really, hope he does a Santi...

          Silva I can see couple of assists. I am still in pain from Santis hat trick. You never know this seasons been a weird one, Spurs could destroy Stoke, at least its at there ground. Good luck.

          Rodgers said that he was really tired and singled him and Allen out as players who REALLY needed a rest. Last week was just bib theory rumours. This week is much more real.

            in case we were 100 % he would start, would you still bench him? If sturridge joins Liverpool is seems pretty likely sterling could get a rest at that time instead

    so how do you all rate the likelihood of these three to start: tevez, enrique, rafael? i think all three will start, but maybe i'm letting hope bias a prediction

      Enrique certainly will. Rafael should too. So then we have Carlito... i have him as Captain as present so i'm hoping he does but with Mancini around who knows!

    Ive already used my free trnasfer so do you think its worth it to replace Defoe with Tevez and Nolan with a budget mid (who I wont play) for -8?

    Note to the podcasters: If you're going with the "TH" in Cazorla, you can't ignore the "R" and pronounce it semi-correctly - CathoHla. And it's not DZeko. It's Džeko. DJeko.

    If you're going fancy, go all the way and pronouce every letter the right way.

    I won't torture you to go with GorkŠs = GorkSHs, but ... just sayin'.
