Next up, we roll out the draw for the last 16 in the Fantasy Football Scout Paddy Power Cup VII. Site regulars such as Wild Rover and JMS remain in with a shout of silverware. Both have avoided world number one Iyad Zahlan - he is up against Jon Griffiths, who takes on the role of underdog, with a rank around the 52,000 mark.

For those still involved, it’s worth knowing that the last eight will qualify automatically for the Fantasy Football Scout Shield, where they will meet the final eight from the Members Cup, which starts in January.

The FFS Shield has its own prizes and is played out over the final Gameweeks of the season. No pressure, then…

1 ange1range1 Vs. Lardy Man
2 JMS Vs. Perchinho

4 Donaldo Vs. MileHigh
5 Tdubb05 Vs. Mr.KK
6 ricky smokes lets go Vs. Green_Libero
7 legriff Vs. Giavara555
8 Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad Vs. RedOranjePey

    Price 9.5 - 11.0
    Total points 102-54
    assists 10 - 2
    goals 7 - 6
    points per game 6.4 - 3.9
    minutes on the pitch 1123 - 874

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Points per minute?

      8-0 :cool:

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Chances of startng

        Tevez 70% - Aguero 90%

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. This is the nub of the problem!

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
        2. Ugh what happened there. Double confirmation

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
      2. Chances of starting

        Tevez 70% - Aguero 90%

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. 180% chance of starting :shock:

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
        2. Although, I wouldn't mind 30 minutes from either of them against a tired Reading defence!!

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
        3. True. But lets not ruin a good moment.

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Shots on target 24-14
      (9-0)

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    3. We will find out Saturday evening

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    4. How many minutes each in the last 5 gameweeks, since they were knocked out of CL?

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  5. bego
    gibbs enriqe clyne (demel) (gorks)
    santi michu sterling Fellaini (mclean)
    RVP tevez berba

    2FT =

    a) fellaini mclean > bale tarrabt
    b) fellaini berba > garcia rooney
    c) fellaini mclean > yaya young
    d) fellaini berba > yaya torres

    or any other ideas?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
  6. Liverpool presser at 3pm
    news on Enrique are expected

    btw what's the latest on rafael? i hope his flag will be removed eiter today or tomorrow..(don't fancy a price drop)

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
  7. Bego
    Enrique, Caulker, Nastasic (Davies, Shorey)
    Mata, Silva, Michu, Sterling (Kanu)
    Rooney (VC), Aguero(C), Suarez

    0 FT...good to go or do Caulker->Vertonghen for -4?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. sterling likely to be benched
      caulker also a doubt
      enrique also a slight doubt
      aguero maybe benched

      hmm i would say yes

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. don't forget Mata maybe benched

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. .. and Robson-Kanu most likely benched

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
  8. I really want to captain Silva, but anything under 8 points would seem pretty disappointing. Should I leave it on him, or go with Suarez, Defoe, or RVP?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Between those 4, narrow it down to Silva or RVP for starters..

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Same situation.
      Going with Silva.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    3. had it on silva all week, changed it to Suarez. gut!

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. I think to finish your sentence would be gut...ted after the weekend :-)

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
    4. RVP......you know it makes sense...

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    5. Feck it you only live once....go mad!

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
        • 1 year, 8 months ago
    6. I'm playing catchup. Silva (c) it is.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  9. 2nd repost
    I’m forced to add from these 3 games to my accumulator so any help would be appreciated
    Bordeaux-Troyes
    Lyon-Nice
    Lorient-Reims
    Its obvious that i should place 3 home wins but does any1 feel that any of these teams could/will draw?
    If so speak and give me ur reason.
    Ty

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. .

      Lorient - Remis could be a draw, but I'd still go for 3 home wins

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  10. Chances of Ivanovic playing this weekend??

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. 80% based on hope as much as anything...

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Id say he is guaranteed

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  11. Incase sterling doesnt play should I

    A. put Cuellar as first sub
    B. Take a hit and bring in Yaya for fellaini

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Mist would say A
      I would say B

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Yaya best choice? already have silva

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Fellaini just has to go asap...

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    3. unfortunately sterling more likely a 15min 1point than non-play. not sure if this helps, but might as well start cuellar for 2pts guarntee and hope for another long ball assist!

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. got mig in goal too :( teams a mess

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
  12. I am sure this has been asked before but dont know who to take fellaini out for.
    A: fellaini >> yaya....and next week will do sess + rafael >> bale + hughes
    B: fellaini + sess >> silva + brunt (for a hit) and next week silva >> bale
    C: fellaini + berbs >> brunt + tevez (for a hit) and next week sess + rafael >> bale + hughes (for another hit)

    Just really confused about yaya vs silva (both have gametime but yaya is moving forward when nasri injured, then he is better value). Tevez (way more explosive and i have a feeling his gametime will increase without nasri but you never know)

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. wouldnt bring Brunt in

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Bob

        Why not?

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. A for me. Silva is worth keeping and option c has too many hits. I already done Giroud to Tevez this week so just gonna hold onto Fellani this week and do something similar next week...double transfer him and Rafaef out for Bale and Lowton.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  13. Purely hypothetical, but if you had Aguero AND Tevez, which would you captain? Would you cover your bases and go for the safe Tevez, or go for the lower ownership Aguero?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Aguero.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Whoever of those is on pens wins the (c) for me.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. last time they were both on they took one each

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
    3. aguero

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    4. I'd captain Tevez.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  14. Like most i’m trying to decide what to do with Fellaini. I see this as a really important decision as loads have Fellaini so the right more could be crucial. I have 2 FT and 0.4m in the bank.

    Begs / Jaask
    Baines, Enrique, Nelsen, Demel, Shorey
    Santi, Michu, Mata, Fellaini, Punchy,
    RVP, Suarez, Fletcher

    I’m thinking either

    a) Fellaini & Enrique > Bale & Davies(swansea)
    b) Fellaini & Enrique > Silva & Clark(villa)
    c) Fellaini & Fletcher > (Cheap sub 5.5m mid & Tevez

    In options b & c I would change Santi > Bale next week.

    Opinions welcome as ever!

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. I went with Puncheon and Tevez - but i already had Silva... Bale can wait a week

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  15. So the gut is really saying Suarez (c). Go with it or not?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Was your gut saying that when Liverpool had other relatively easy games at home?

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. No head was saying so at SOT(c). Only other game i have captained him.

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. Then go with it, I have him but not sure I am going to captain him, between RVP and Silva for me.

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. KoL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Im selling

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. out of curiosity when did you get Suarez?

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. KoL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          GW15 lost 0.1 on him so far

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
          1. See that makes sense. I don't know whether its correct to sell Suarez or not, but if you see the profile of people who are selling they usually would have got him after GW13 and the people who've owned him from before that and have got points from Suarez in the past are more reluctant to sell and in many cases may keep for a few weeks longer .(Ofcourse losing or gaining vallue also counts) But this seems to be a phenomenon which you see really often here - liking a player due to previous performances with them.

            • 1 year, 8 months ago
            1. KoL
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Yeah I can see the attachment. I am usually objective in my transfers. I think Suarez will score well this GW just think why not go for Aguero its christmas after all :)

              • 1 year, 8 months ago
            2. I had suarez since GW7, and I sold last week for Rooney :)

              His form is really quite bad. Not good enough for a player that costs as much as he does!

              • 1 year, 8 months ago
  16. Kompany a major doubt: may miss the whole festive period.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Thinking of getting nasty soon so thats good news.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Is it? I guess it makes him more nailed on, but also makes their defence a slightly worse prospect.

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. KoL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Yeahh I can see what youre saying although 5.6 for a city def is prettty good. Can see a few cleanies ove xmas.

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
          1. I did Gorkss > Nasty today following the news

            • 1 year, 8 months ago

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Aye wy not. Got 2 frees nothing pressing just think y not.

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
      2. KoL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Suarez

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
  18. What do you say to this lot for the GW?

    Bunn
    GJ - Davies - Sagna
    Michu - Mata(C) - Lennon - Santi
    Tevez - Suarez - Rooney(VC)

    Bego - Puncheon - Hughes - Mariappa

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Puncheon over Lennon

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. And put Tevez (c)

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. looks ok - but i would switch the armband off Mata - any of the your front 3 look better bets to me...

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  19. Can someone please tweet Enrique and ask him if he's fit to play?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. That sounds a bit gay...

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  20. Rukawa and Jafooli, I just saw your posts on the first page. Thanks for your support. Will try my best luck to scrape through again.

    Vietnam representative! :-)

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Yeah go KK, good luck....

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  21. I think the season ticker should be viewable from two different perspectives...attacking returns and defensive returns.
    e.g. Team at home to Swansea always have a blue box but it's good for the attackers but not for the defenders....other times it's vica versa

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
  22. Soooo frkn confused between yaya vs silva vs tevez.

    Wont take a hit with yaya but will on the other two if i bring them in. I will be bringing tevez in for berba...

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
  23. Chances of Lampard playing this weekend?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
  24. Anything I should change in my team for GW18?Replies will be appreciated.

    Bego
    Rafael Nelsen Clyne (Shawcross Demel)
    Mata Silva Bale Michu (Puncheon)
    RvP(C) Berbatov Suarez

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
  25. Which option is better?

    A) OUT : Fellaini , Snodgrass, Rooney

    IN : Mata, Silva Benteke (-4 point hit)

    B) OUT: Fellaini, Snodgrass, Suarez, Jose enrique

    IN : Mata, Silva, Benteke, 4.7 mil defender (-8 point hit)


    Thanks
