Fantasy Football Scout Cup VIII – Fifth Round Draw

We’ve reached the Fifth Round of the Fantasy Football Scout Cup, sponsored by Paddy Power, this weekend, and are on the lookout for a new face to lift the silverware after our two remaining previous winners, Goonerdave and sleepingmaster, were both eliminated:

Pryston North End FC and Albany City were the respective victors and will now take on Team Hayemaker and ec3dm over Gameweek 17. We’re also keeping an eye on Hillbillypete – having knocked out current champion Wild Rover, he continue to remain in with a shout of the silverware and is up against site regular The Sarjeant in the Fifth Round.

Our site moderator, Applebonkers, is also in the hat and is something of an underdog for the weekend, with his opponent BJ sitting just inside the top 5,000. Tony Hibbert’s Love Child is the top-ranked manager in this week’s draw – sitting in 570th overall, he now squares up to Nepalock.

Looking at some of the site regulars, Malcolm Tucker for England manager is up against 11 Men in Flight, Tommy Tynan’s Left Shin Pad will pit his wits against TOMDN, while 2ndMan is up against mickey30101985 for a place in the last 32.

As always, we name-check the highest scoring manager from the previous round. Both Michu at De Gea Bar and Andy Paps achieved this accolade, with 97 points apiece, and will now go head-to-head with Son of Rambo and dino_dem next time around.

The lowest-scoring team to advance to the Fifth Round belongs to Mr T. He’ll be hoping to improve upon a score of 63 points as he prepares to do battle with heco87.

Once again, good luck to those still in with a shout.

      do u think lampard will drop? currently -32%

      considering getting mirallas for lampard for a hit as mirallas is rising tonight it seems so it would be a 0.2 turnaround in price. thoughts?

        Considering Lampard is rotated often and Mirallas' only competition for his spot is now out for Xmas seems like a good idea regardless of whether Lamps drops

                Do you think Lampard will start this week? I am pondering the same transfer! However, Lampard is a nice differntial. I have had him for 5 weeks and, despite rotation, am delighted with his 30 points over that period.

                    he will start for sure, be rested vs swansea and play vs pool i think
                    besides match is on monday time plenty of time to recover

                    do u think he will drop in price though?

                      He wont drop, but he has a tough fixture whereas Mirallas has a decent one. Plus it will be a long term move.

                      Im undecided.

                Feck it, Ozil & Sess > Walcott and Silva (-4). They're coming in eventually, might as well hop on early and pray for immediate returns.

                        I could but it just doesn't sit comfortably with me though. The last 2 goals have come from penalties, and is yaya definitely 2nd in PK duties?

                            Probably first now with Aguero out.

                            I wouldn't be too sure. He's disappeared in all the big games so far this season though, was still quiet at the City game despite an assist. Walcott's first home game, gut says he will deliver.

                                I think using points to do Ozil -> Theo is a big mistake and a luxury transfer. Sessegnon also has decent chance of getting points.

                                    I would have to disagree on both fronts. Walcott has proven he is a goal scorer and that will he his job going forward imo.

                                    Sess has had his chance. 2 blanks for the whole WBA in the past 2 games. Who is to say he has a chance of getting points against a Hull defence that has proven to be no pushovers?

                                    I agree that there is a risk involved, but to say Ozil>Walcott is a big mistake and Sessengnon has more chance of points vs Silva against Fulham? Disgaree.

                                  It would be close but should still be affordable. Don't know...what would hold you back? Is it the -4?

                                  In any case, if i were to keep Ozil and just bring in Silva for Sess, it would have to be for a hit. Really am sick of Sess in my team. deadweight. not even a CS point.

                                      My point exactly. Yes Sess has been close(I benched him when he scored vs CHEL!)...but Wba just fired their manager and did not score vs Nor or Car...why would they suddenly score vs Hul?

                                          Yea i don't really fancy Sess getting any returns really. He's had plum fixtures to get returns and he hasn't. I don't even think a new coach will turn their form around so quick. They lost 0-1 to Norwich at home ffs.

                                            Yea I understand the worries with the transfers Jinswick, particularly Ozil>Walcott.

                                            But I would want at least Silva in this week and it would still be for a hit. Funded by Kosc > sub 4.8 defender. You think that would be a more optimal transfer? Would still be for a hit, mind. But if Kosc isn't ruled out for too long, i'd still want him for the run of fixtures after Chelsea.

                                              I think the sensible play is to stick this week and then do Ozil/Sess -> Wally/Silva next week.

                                              The hit could work well, but my main issue with ones like this is there is a definite chance it could go the completely opposite way. Ozil's home form is great, and Sess will be out to impress under the new boss. At home to HUL could well repay those who keep the faith.

                                        Ozil -> Wally, sideways but it could be good for The 1 mill extra. Sess vs Silva, I'd take Silva any day over Sess but are you sure it's worth a hit? Wait One week?

                                            Even if I do keep Ozil, Silva in would have to be for a hit anyway. Thinking that I might as well go for both Silva and Walcott since in both scenarios it'll be for a hit.

                                                  Yeah I probably will, just want to hear some arguments and whether it can be counterargued. Ozil > Walcott is the transfer i'm worried about, but Silva vs Sessegnon...c'mon we have to play the percentages.

                                                  Personally, Walcott and Silva have a much higher chance of outscoring Ozil + Sess + 4.

                                                        It's risky but I feel doing it now gives me the benefit of using my FT next week more efficiently to take care of any rotation risks for boxing day. Walcott and Silva will surely start on boxing day (bar suspension or injury).

                                                          i think both teams will concede

                                                          luna maybe for possible attacking threat going forward?

Can see Hazard blanking against Arsenal and Silva doing well at Fulham whch will hopefully pay for the -4, after that prefer City's fixtures.

When RVP got injured i ventured for Aguero instead of Saurez due to he scores points in Champions League games... Should i transfer or hold?

As a Chelsea fan, we've been dreadful recently. Hazard and Willian have been the only bright sparks of late. Terry and Lampard are past their best, Luiz isn't cut out to be a defender, Ivanovic can't cross to save his life and the less I say about our strikers the better.

I worry about Girouds lack of form and think with the way City are playing Negredo has the potential to do very nicely

Put soldado in the city situation and he will flourish - he goes through a bad spell in a team that does not utilize him right and let silly people shoot all the time instead of passing him the ball more.
