The Saturday Surgery

Filed under: Matchday Surgery - Posted by: Mark

The double Gameweek frenzy reaches a crescendo with around two hours to go before the gate slams down on our Fantasy lineups. Points hits are still on the cards, captain changes and bench tweaks still to be decided ahead of a Gameweek which will, hopefully, provide some heavy scoring after the previous weekend fell so flat.

If you’re late to the party, you can can catch up with our double Gameweek dominated Scout Picks selection, find some left field selections via the Differentials or, if you fancy a aural accompaniment to the bacon butty, fire up the latest ScoutCast. If you’re still dallying on those transfers, maybe our team news with predicted lineups can help you out.

The Matchday Surgery chatroom is now open for those who require some real-time reassurance, while the Dugout Discussion will follow prior to today’s kick-offs – at around 2.45.

Another Friday night Pre-match Preamble follows shortly.

  3. No doubt this question has been asked a thousand times but: Walcott or Santi?
    Can only accommodate one, money's no issue, which one is the right choice?

    • 1 year, 6 months ago
    1. Santi safer, Walcott more explosive, so depends how you feel.

      • 1 year, 6 months ago
      1. Cheers for dispelling the voices in my head, Santi it is then, in pole position in my mini league so makes sense to go with the percentages!

    2. No, due to a stupid comment having to be removed and then the thread tidied up, it broke the threading on the comments so I had to test to ensure that things were okay. Oh for HomeCrowd. Counting the days.

        is this phase of testing still going? or is it over? was hoping to test tomorrow if it still is

        • 1 year, 6 months ago
        1. We're done for this phase. Styling the comments next week and we've added some further admin tools. So now we just optimising ahead of basically, opening up the test server to a far bigger audience.

          • 1 year, 6 months ago
      2. How stupid a comment do you need to make to be removed :p
