Better late than never, our ninety seventh episode of the ScoutCast delivers another 45 minutes of mirth, plus injury time.

With the Professor otherwise engaged, it’s left to Jonty to provide backup to myself and Granville, arriving to deliver another “Fully Jonty” – the first to feature a community victim.

Doosra’s Fantasy fortunes come under the microscope, revealing a penchant for bandwagons and knee jerk transfers. Nevertheless, we try to go easy on the experienced campaigner, rounding things off with the extraordinary tale of the Doosra rescuing Jonty’s dog. True story.

That treat rounds off an episode that includes all the usual regulars, including our rinse through the forthcoming double Gameweek which Granville insists on placing within inverted commas: the weirdo.

  1. Fulham's Dimitar Berbatov will have a fitness test ahead of the game against Norwich tomorrow

    Norwich's Alexander Tettey and Anthony Pilkington are doubts for tomorrows game against Fulham

  2. My Team Value is looking good because Gerrard Zabaleta DeGuzman and Davies will be rising!

  3. i know that you're all a bunch of perfectionists but who is reasonably happy with their team this week? (also with a view to next week).

    • 3 years, 6 days ago
    1. Me, definitely... As long as Clyne is fit and no other injuries arise, I can get away with 1FT next week to play 11 with 4 DGW this week.

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
    2. AJ.

      Don't know about next week but this week Yes. 8 point hit though.

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
      1. 8pt hit aatish?? making what changes?

        • 3 years, 6 days ago
      2. if u score over a 100 then 8 points is nothing

        • 3 years, 6 days ago
    3. *raises hand*

      4 DGW players and 2FT next week with 3.4m in the bank. Cue GW disaster. 😉

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
      1. perfectly laid plans.

        • 3 years, 6 days ago
    4. I am for this week but i will have a different answer for you next week

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
      • 3 years, 6 days ago
  4. AJ.

    Simon O'Rourke @sorourkeITV 7s
    #SAFC McClean doubtful after R.o.Ire injury. Cattermole has a chance if comes
    thru training. "Good chance" Wickham out on loan next week.

    • 3 years, 6 days ago
    1. wow, Wickham was a good signing for them, £8m+

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
  5. Bench 1...

    Zabaleta Rafael Azpillicueta Davies

    • 3 years, 6 days ago
      • 3 years, 6 days ago
    1. AJ.

      Rafael.

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
    2. Currently on Rafael

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
      1. Has his hands full with Baines

        • 3 years, 6 days ago
    3. I would bench Rafael of those

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
      1. Thanks guys, thats conclusive then. :-)

        • 3 years, 6 days ago
    4. where's Bench 2 so we can compare?

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
  6. aguero> suarez (c) gw26 > Rooney gw27 (-4) ?

    • 3 years, 6 days ago
    1. Yep...

      -4 this week or next week??

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
      1. next Evra>Evans to afford Rooney

        • 3 years, 6 days ago
  7. Thanks for the reply icon and skoda.. lack of a consensus forces me to repost
    Which would you prefer over 2 weeks? sorry if confusing
    A)
    GW 26
    Aguero + 4
    Sturridge (c)

    GW 27
    Zabaleta

    OR

    B)
    GW 26
    Suarez (C)
    Sturridge

    GW 27
    Bertrand

    • 3 years, 6 days ago
  8. I have Davies, Sterling and Sturridge for DGW, do you think it would be wise to get in Suarez for RVP for 4 pt hit. It will mean I also need to take another hit next week to get rid. What you think?

    • 3 years, 6 days ago
    1. Could work out but Suarez would have to score at least 2 for you to actually get 4 points in effect. If you captain then I guess it's worth it but overall no.

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
  9. Pick one, Gerrard or Suarez, first to 5.

    • 3 years, 6 days ago
    1. AJ.

      Gerrard.

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
    2. Gerrard

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
    3. Suarez

      Good luck getting to 5 😉

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
    4. Gerrard

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
  10. Who do I take out for one week to get in GJ?

    Zabaleta or Evra?

    Will be got back for free next week.

    • 3 years, 6 days ago
    1. Surely not worth two transfers?

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
    2. Keep them 2 players not worth getting rid of either

      • 3 years, 6 days ago
    • 3 years, 6 days ago
  11. All set to go for tomorrow. Can't wait although I'm still fearing not having Sturridge in for some reason. Everything look where it should be? Really need Wilson to play next week so it only takes me one hit to field 11!

    G: Tremmel

    D: Azipilicueta - GJ - Davies

    M: Mata - Bale - Gerrard (vc) - De Guzman - Walcott

    F: RVP - Suarez (vc)

    DDG - Anichebe - Wilson - Pearce

“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.”
