The ScoutCast – Episode Ninety Four – Resumption

Back for 2013, fully refreshed, slightly rusty and balancing the same chips on our shoulders, Granville are I make a return to the podcast studio.

The New Year presents my beleaguered co-host with a 51-point gap to bridge as I spent Christmas “ho-ho-ing” about three midfield hat-tricks, leaving Granville to roll out one mighty miffed in this week’s episode.

Elsewhere, we pick at the double Gameweek buffet, eagerly scoffing on the Chelsea canapés whilst wondering if Rafa has hidden something nasty in the vol-a-vents. We rinse that down with the latest transfers in and out in “all aboard”, preview all the weekend fixtures and carry out the latest emergency surgery on the ailing ScoutCast team.

              As a Liverpool fan UTD's the main one I look out for at the start of the season.

            This is frustating

            Bench Punch Walcott or Michu

            Punch is the weakest but DGW
            Walcott simply because Arsenal always do well vs City at Emriates and he's playing up top
            Michu has a tougher fixture as Swans never score vs Everton but they are likely to score 1 goal and Michu gotta be in it.

                                puncheon will get 2pts against chelsea.

                                so essentially its puncheon vs villa and 2pts vs walcott.

                                id be tempted to go walcott

                                        theres no easy answer really. its 50 50. walcott will probably score max one goal as city will be water tight at the back.

                                        if puncheon plays he gets at least 4pts plus whatever damage he might do.

                                        so safest option is going puncheon as at least he banks 4pts for u

                                                        sell safety boots/shoes too. you should sell your stuff online too if your not already. makes a massive difference to your sales with little extra cost
