As we close on a century of episodes it was time to freshen things up and bring new voices to accompany my drone and that of grumpy Granville. In this weeks’ episode, we draft in both “Professor” Chris Atkinson and his “Rate My Team” computer, plus long-time community member and contributor, Jonty, for a new ScoutCast regular.

Don’t worry, the usual format remains intact although, having recorded this just minutes after last night’s whistles, Granville escapes the usual mini-league grilling. Not surprisingly, there’s plenty of “Granny’s miffed” to endure, plus “All Aboard” and the weekend preview. That’s’ rounded off by the “Full Jonty” a brand new feature that will bring you, the community, into our weekly ramblings.

Have a listen then get involved by mailing jonty@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk

  1. Team for Saturday is the following -

    Fed (bego)
    Baines Davies clyne (r Martin demel)
    Mata fell bale Walcott (punch)
    RVP Suarez podolski

    I'm planning to save remaining free transfer and use two next week to bring in two of Johnson, Enrique, Gerrard, michu and sturridge (funds allowing). 0.1 in bank

  3. Large spreadsheet running a calc at the moment so while I'm waiting I'll ask again:

    Can I get your thoughts on Zab/GJ strategy please – currently on WC.

    A: GW25 Zab > GW26 GJ > GW27 back to Zab
    B: GW25 GJ > GW26 Save FT > GW27 Zab and another FT to field 11.

    1. Seems like a lot of transfers for a defender. On the other hand I own both already so...

  4. Need help using wc

    shwarzer cerny

    davies (swan) evra clyn zabletta naughton

    mata walcot fellaini tarabat Lampard

    rooney l;e fondre tevez

    any suggestions??

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Dont like Tevez. Not keep on the 'power 5' mid but if you are doing it the 5th mid has to be better than Taarabt. Get rid of Shwartzer. Doubt Naughton will keep his place. Lamps>Bale if you can afford. Rest fine

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. THANx

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Am also looking for liv and swn players for double game week

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  5. I have Gibbs. As he is injured is Monreal worth a punt?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. No, Glen.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  6. be wary of overloading with liverpool and swans next week as even though its a DW neither play the week after, could cost you minus points. be selective
