The Fantasy Football Scout Survey

With the weekend FA Cup matches providing another break in proceedings, we’re taking this opportunity to launch the Fantasy Football Scout survey.

This is long overdue.

While we’ve gathered some feedback in previous years, it was actually way back in 2010 when we last carried out a full survey of our readership and so much has changed since then.

We’ve tried to keep the 2017 iteration as brief as possible, while canvasing you on your views on the site, your likes and dislikes, your Fantasy Football habits and also a bit of background about you.

This feedback will provide us with a vital first step in shaping the future of the site. We’re currently in the process of restructuring the team and this involves hiring a full-time developer to work with Ed on taking the site forward.

We intend to open this up to our readers, using the survey to help schedule our priorities but coming to you to finalise our list of tasks. Crucially, once we’re underway, we want to report back regularly on progress and the changes to the roadmap.

Your input on this survey is a crucial first step. We hope you’ll take time to answer our questions and, where applicable, leave comments and feedback.

We will likely be leaving the survey open for up to a month and then, hopefully, we will get the opportunity to share the results and how this has impacted on our thinking for future development.

As an added incentive, those who complete the survey in full will have the opportunity to enter a draw to win a £100 Amazon voucher.

Click here to take the survey.

Thanks for your feedback.

            If Arsene goes, maybe he stays if he thinks things could turn around. That would be my guess. Otherwise, why stay really?

                    Why should he stay? Unless there's a monumental change of everything there?

                    If they bring in a great manager like Allegri - Sanchez might stay

                      I really think Wenger will be fired this year, the team had no ideas, but I have to recognise that his squad isn't really great and he does a decent job with what he has.

                        He signed Mustafi, El Ninnny and Xhaka. Just not good enough.

                            I don't really see those as top players and I think that is one of the problems... The last big signing for them was Ozil and it's all said when you have to play coquelin and chamberlain in the middle...

                              Chamberlain is there because he had a good game against a second rate southampton team, and the pressure Wenger is under to give him more game time. Not very inspiring from the manager is it haha.

                              I don't understand Ospina's consistent selection either. I'm guessing Cech isn't injured right

                            Maybe if they sell ozil and make promise to make 2 marque signings, he'll be interested in staying

                              I mean promise to sanchez, coz it doesnt mean they'll do it

                            Personally I think that Arsenal are missing a good defensive midfielder, since Patrick Vieira they really haven't found anyone... Just look at Kante for Chelsea, Wanyama for Spurs... What a difference

                          Imagine a midfield of:
                          Kante
                          Thiago Veratti

                          hmmmmmm

                                      Would Sanchez even get into this Bayern side?
                                      Who would he come in for if they did sign him?

                                        He's better than Douglas Costa, who is a fine player.

                                            Sanchez will get into any side in the world. You make room for him, as simple as that.

                                              Barcalona?

                                                  Of course he will. Do they need him, probably not? But you can play him over Neymar if needed. Wenger's played him everywhere, so it's not like he'll be lost.

                                              Robben. He's getting on a bit

                                                Ribéry and Robben will play their last season, he will replace them

                                                    5 months, 5 days ago

                                                    Robben already signed an extension beyond this season iirc.
