Scout Notes – Champions League – Wednesday

Arsenal’s annual Champions League exit appears imminent following a chastening night in Bavaria, with a hamstring issue for popular Fantasy asset Laurent Koscielny merely compounding the misery.

Bayern Munich 5 Arsenal 1

An injury to defender Laurent Koscielny prompted a second-half capitulation of epic proportions as Arsenal were blown away by Bayern.

Alexis Sanchez had earlier given the Gunners huge hope that they could take the tie back to The Emirates with all still to play for when he finished with aplomb when his initial effort from the spot was saved.

But once Koscielny departed with a hamstring problem early in the second half, Arsenal’s resolve dissolved and three goals in ten chaotic minutes quickly followed.

The Frenchman has started all bar the first match of the season in the league for the Gunners. They conceded four that day – their worst defensive performance of the campaign until last night’s debacle.

The only crumb of comfort for the 16.9% of managers who own the centre-half is that he has until March 4 to recover as Arsenal will sit out Gameweek 26 because of Southampton’s involvement in the EFL Cup final. Those who were contemplating selling him, due to that blank and a Gameweek 27 trip to Liverpool, may well have had their minds made up by this latest set-back.

Kieran Gibbs – at 4.7 a cheap way into the Arsenal defence – was given back-to-back starts for the first time this season.

But Arsenal’s left side proved to be a rich source of attacking joy for Bayern all night and it would be no surprise if Nacho Monreal is returned to the starting XI in the league, if not for Monday’s FA Cup tie at Sutton.

Two regular midfielders, Mesut Ozil and Alex Iwobi, also failed to impress.

The 6.5%-owned Ozil has just three assists and no goals since Gameweek 15, while Iwobi (3.2%) has started the last nine league matches, providing two goals and a pair of assists.

Beleaguered manager Arsene Wenger has options in midfield and Iwobi, in particular, looks vulnerable either to a like-for like swap with Theo Walcott or a re-jig involving Sanchez moving back from his successful stint up front.

Arsenal’s post-Gameweek 27 schedule is generally a favourable one all the way through to the very end of April. But only the ever-reliable Sanchez currently inspires confidence in a team whose limitations were otherwise exposed by a ruthless Bayern.

The second leg with Bayern sits three days after the Gameweeek 27 trip to Anfield, although it’s surely unlikely that Wenger will allow that to influence his teamsheet and approach for the Liverpool clash.

Arsenal XI: Ospina, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny (Gabriel 49), Gibbs, Xhaka, Coquelin (Giroud 77), Iwobi (Walcott 66), Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sanchez.
Subs not used: Cech, Monreal, Welbeck, Elneny.

    Just out of interest, I'm hopeful that the FPL show tonight will feature the angle used to decipher the McAuley touch on the Evans header.

      Are we still talking about this?!

        8 months, 8 days ago

        Well given that there are many who believe it was a completely ridiculous decision, I think it's worthwhile clearing it up, particuarly as MOTD have not shown any angles that highlight it. Can't really discuss the Gameweek without mentioning it.

        1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
          8 months, 8 days ago

          Fair enough, I guess as a non-owner of any of the protagonists I am more bored of it than most.

    2. Jac The Cat

      I'm just happy to have them McAuley points 🙂

      I assume you've seen WBA's tweet, Mark? I know it's the same angle as TV just slowed down and blown up

        That does show the touch but I believe there is a side on angle that's even better. It's actually a pretty significant touch and even talk that Evans' header may not have been on target.

    4. Flapjack ✅

      There's an FPL show?

      Sure they'll get a MASSIVE Protractor out.

      Looking at the slow mo replay again, that was a really sh*te header by Evans. 😆

      That would be good if there's an even better angle than the West Brom one.

      Also please thank the person who put out this tweet - https://twitter.com/OfficialFPL/status/831276907245223938

      It was excellent 🙂

      My hopes have been dashed. I clung onto a tiny thread of belief but it's time to let it go. 12 point swing on a ML leader just 18 points ahead of me for big cash. It hurts but the FPL gods giveth and taketh away.

    9. FPL Virgin

      What if McAuley had had a 'number 1 all over' haircut on the morning of the game?

      Is the "touch" the fluttering of his hair as the ball sails over his head?

    10. Legomané
      8 months, 7 days ago

      nice, look forward to that. transparency with the evidence is important.

    Arsenal spent £96m this summer on players.

    Unbelievable.

    1. Jac The Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Sadly the wrong players

    2. UnitedFan
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Xhaka is a let down with his discipline. To be fair to Mustafi, he's good and has the potential to be great, just in a bad patch atm like most of them are. Perez needs to start imo

      1. Dre
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        Arsenal's problems are like needing a washing machine and buying a dishwasher

        1. UnitedFan
          8 months, 8 days ago

          haha yeah

    3. Dedalus1

      Spare change for Arsenal

    4. tm370
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      and City £162 million - even more unbelievable.

      So many Prem clubs seem unable to address clear weaknesses which have been apparent for years.

  4. Jac The Cat

    8 months, 8 days ago

    GW26 1FT and 1.1 ITB, any advice welcome...

    Heaton - Robinson
    Alonso - Baines - McAuley - Amat - Ake
    Sanchez - Alli - Eriksen - Sigurdsson - Phillips
    Ibrahimovic - Lukaku - Carroll

    A, Sanchez -> Hazard
    B, Ake -> Robertson
    C, Something else

    1. UnitedFan
      8 months, 8 days ago

      B

    2. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      I like A.

      Hold onto Sanchez and ibra if you can

    3. Cars and Mané
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Wait until after the weekend

    4. The Asset
      8 months, 8 days ago

      I think it may be time to ditch Alexis for a while at least to see how Arsenal pan out

  5. Flapjack ✅

    Keep "real" football off FFS!

    None of you go to the games anyway

      "Real" football is just fine on here

    3. BrooklynGooner

      8 months, 8 days ago

      I view it as a counterweight. I work with mainly programmers, so it's easy to be the bigshot--when Arsenal win, I focus on that, else FPL becomes the talking point.

  6. TOBY1
    8 months, 8 days ago

    Mane , Lukaku or Costa for next week's captain?

    1. Holmes
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Luka

    2. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Lukaku !!!!!

    3. Tokyo Rising Sun

      Lukaku

    4. Jæzz! 💡 ⭐ Gabo…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Kaku, though Mané is tempting.

    5. UnitedFan
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Lukaku

    6. Jac The Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Lukaku

    7. &Ampersand&

      Lukaku

    8. TOBY1

      guess could be dangerous or genius to not captain kaku...

    9. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Costa

  7. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 8 days ago

    Amat > Fernandez 😎

    CS & assist for 4.2m, when the alternative gets nought.

    What's not to like.

    1. Jac The Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      That's my move for GW 27 🙂

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        Two weeks too late 😉

        Oh and a bap 😛

        1. RedMarks 赤的
          8 months, 7 days ago

          Got him too...by sold Pieters

    2. andy85wsm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Would you not prefer Alfie "I can volley at will" Mawson for 0.3m more?

      1. Jac The Cat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        I would but he's out of my price range 🙁

        1. andy85wsm
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          8 months, 8 days ago

          That's fair enough, Fernandez is nice bench fodder outside of blanks and good fixtures anyway!

        2. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 months, 8 days ago

          This, and I already got Fernandez last week 😀

          And played him 😎

          In fact I have Robertson, Yoshida & Fernadez in the land of pricey defenders.

          No Alonso (or Chelsea def), no Coleman, no Brunt, no Walker/Rose 😮

    3. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Will be same (or Mawson) for gw27.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        Ferdo 0.3m cheaper and more of a differential 😀

        But I would probably go Manson if I had the cash.

        1. The Wise Owl
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Charles has more attacking threat

        2. MTPockets
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 months, 8 days ago

          Fair point. Undecided really but almost anyone trumps amat.

          1. Jafooli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            8 months, 8 days ago

            A frozen fish finger trumps Amat.

    is snodgrass nailed?
    looking at getting him or josh king in for sanchez for 3 gw's

    1. Jac The Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Hard to say for sure but IMO he's a likely starter.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        This

  9. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 8 days ago

    So as we run into the last few weeks of Wenger's reign, do we expect Arsenal players to step up and try to give him a decent farewell, or just fold like they have repeatedly done over the years?

    Apart from Sanchez & Kos that is.

    1. UnitedFan
      8 months, 8 days ago

      I think they'll step up enough to secure top 4

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        So no change then 😛

    2. Pap Le Cissier (Sons & …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Fold faster than Ben Dinnerys credibility

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        😆 that was gone a very long time ago.

        #bonygate

  10. Pap Le Cissier (Sons & …
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 8 days ago

    Perhaps the most boring choice so far

    A) Kingsley > Robertson (4-3-3)
    B) Save and play Fletcher (3-4-3)

    1. UnitedFan
      8 months, 8 days ago

      A, Fletcher adds nothing most of the time

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      as a Robertson owner, I'd say him.

    3. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      B

  11. Chicken-Mandy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 8 days ago

    what to do here:
    A. ibra to lukaku, save a transfer and play pieters (tot)
    B. Diomande and sanchez to lukaku and snodgrass and go back to 3-4-3

    leaning towards b as ibra has the better gw27 fixture.
    happy to get sanchez back in 29 for a hit.

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      I'd go B, looking at Sanchez & Defoe > Siggy/Snoddy & Lukaku myself.

      Almost certainly my transfers before deadline unless injuries etc.

  12. thedom1
    8 months, 8 days ago

    best replacement for Jesus for a 1 week punt lads?

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Who your other two?

      1. thedom1
        8 months, 8 days ago

        Costa & Ibra.

        benching Ibra though 🙂

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 months, 8 days ago

          Defo Lukaku if you can afford him?

  13. Now That's A Team
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 8 days ago

    Have you got any tips so i can be my best mate. He is 150 points ahead of me at this moment in time.The players we both have are Baines, Walker, Phillips, Defoe, Lakaku. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    1. The Big Fella
      8 months, 8 days ago

      You can't be your best mate and shouldn't try to be. You just need to learn to accept and be yourself. He is not better or worse than you, just different. Don't let yourself feel inferior to him.

      1. Lawrø - KenYaYa ⭐
        8 months, 8 days ago

        It's possible just very difficult...

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Can you post your team? Easier that way.....

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        And money in the bank, no of FTs and what chips (WC, BB, TC) you both have.

        I reckon you can still turn over a 150pt lead depending on above.

    3. Knuckles the one who Knocks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Has he used his Triple Captain, Bench Boost or WC yet?

  14. We Will Klopp you
    8 months, 8 days ago

    For gameweek 28 which keeper should I take out for Jakupovic?

    A) Heaton (have 0.3 value on him)
    B) Grant (have 0.1 value on him)

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      B

    2. Athletic Bilbo
      8 months, 7 days ago

      I'd drop heaton and bank the cash, play Jaku all the way to the end, good form and fixtures. I reckon he'll outscore Heaton from now on

  15. The Big Fella
    8 months, 8 days ago

    Would you take a -4 to change 2 players that don't play (Holgate and Ake) to two players that do play (2 of Coleman, Robertson and Mawson) and will also play both the GW26 and 28 blanks? The other option is changing one of them and also Anichebe but I don't like any of the strikers who will play for GW26 and 28 (Carroll and Llorente - I have Lukaku already). Any advice would be appreciated!

    1. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Probably. 2 non-starters is a waste and net transfer cost likely not negative. As you say, still have to weigh up against other transfer options though.

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      If you can get Coleman and either of the others for -4pts and they will give you an extra player in 26 & 28, yes I would.

      1. The Big Fella
        8 months, 8 days ago

        Would you rather get Coleman + another defender or Coleman + a striker? Carroll is my preference amongst the available striking options but 1) he plays Chelsea in GW27 and 2) he is injury prone.

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 months, 8 days ago

          Who is your front three at the moment?

          1. Jafooli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            8 months, 8 days ago

            I would get Coleman and one of those two probably.

            They are cheap and replacing a non-starter, so no a big impact on your team to get starters for 28

            1. Jafooli
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              8 months, 8 days ago

              Two defenders that is...

          2. The Big Fella
            8 months, 8 days ago

            Front 3 is Anichebe, Lukaku and Ibra. I have 1 FT left (already got rid of Aguero for Lukaku). I am going to wait anyway as Borough may well not qualify in which case Defoe becomes available as an option but if not I want to be planning ahead.

            1. Jafooli
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              8 months, 8 days ago

              Ah right like I said below, probs best get rid of Anichebe, and get Carroll (or Llorente)? And Coleman...

  16. Troll31
    8 months, 8 days ago

    Team for GW 26:

    0FT (no point hit so far), 1.6m in the bank

    Jaku
    Coleman, McAulay, Baines
    Hazard (C), Phillips, Alli , Stanislas, Siggy
    Costa, Rondon

    Bench: Heaton, Prodl, Friend, Ibra

    A) Stanislas > Snodgrass/King
    B) Alli > Mane (depending on FA Cup results)
    C) Something else
    D) Keep as is

  17. RUUD VAN NISTELROOY - BEST …

    1. Jafooli

      Yes, and then rested for FA Cup, I think.

      Or other way round 😀

  18. rawk23

    Is Jack Stephens 4.0 currently the cheapest/ most nailed on defender?

    1. speedyboyzzzz-BALEGIUM

      nailed until VVD returns/cecares signs

      1. Jafooli

    Guy in first place in my ML is 60 points ahead.

    Main advantage I have is I have me BB chip left he hasn't

    I can do it right or will it be tough?

      Easy

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      You can do it....make that BB count in a DGW and you could potentially half that lead.

      That leaves 30-40pts over 13 weeks, is 3pts per week.

      Easy. In fact a couple good captains and you're there...

    3. Dezrar

      I made up 68 points to draw level with my ML leader in just the last 2 GW (no chips).. you are 100% still in it!

      Wait for a big double gameweek, make it count.

    Play Foster (BOU) or Jaku (BUR)?

    1. andy85wsm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Jaku

      1. MTPockets
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks. I'm thinking wba at home not brilliant but better.

    2. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Jaku

    3. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Jak

      1. MTPockets
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers both. Not what I was expecting.

      Nice... Wont disappoint 😛

      1. CptCrunch OF FASHANU ZEALAN…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        I'm confident he'll find a way 🙂

        1. Holmes
          8 months, 8 days ago

          My expectations are high from him, I think he'll outscore Costa over next 3 weeks 😀

          1. CptCrunch OF FASHANU ZEALAN…
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            8 months, 8 days ago

            That is exactly my reasoning too!

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Off the reservation 😀

      1. CptCrunch OF FASHANU ZEALAN…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        0.2% ownership I think.

        Have enjoyed 5 points from Alexis so far.
        Time to eat humble pie

    3. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Optimistic.

  22. Holmes
    8 months, 8 days ago

    Quickie:

    A) Funes, Robertson, 5.6m mid

    B) Fernandez, Maguire, Snodgrass

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      That's what she said.

      B

  23. The Big Fella
    8 months, 8 days ago

    I have Anichebe, Grant, Holgate and Ake. I want to bring in 2 of the following for GW26 for a -4:
    1) Jaku
    2) Robertson
    3) Mawson
    4) Carroll
    5) Coleman

    Who should I bring in?

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      All five good options.

      Defo 5 & as one of your options hardly plays (injured) could half gamble on 4.

      Otherwise 1

      1. The Big Fella
        8 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers mate!

    2. UnitedFan
      8 months, 8 days ago

      1 and 5 would be my picks

      1. The Big Fella
        8 months, 8 days ago

        Coleman makes sense. Jaku even though Grant will play GW26?

        1. UnitedFan
          8 months, 8 days ago

          Ah didn't realise you have Grant. 2 then

    3. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      1,5

      1. The Big Fella
        8 months, 8 days ago

        Even though Grant already plays in GW26 (albeit against Spurs)?

        1. MTPockets
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 months, 8 days ago

          Didn't read properly. Then ideally 4, otherwise 2 or 3.

    No ML is out of reach at this stage, if you stay level headed and take the right risks at the right time you will be in with a shout of clawing back a 150+ point gap.

    1. Dingo.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Don't say that. I'm 60 points ahead!

      1. BrooklynGooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        You are easily gettable. Don't relax.

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Yeah I reckon it's about the limit on reasonable catch ups without stupid amounts of luck.

    3. liiusions
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      I was 120 behind with 8 GWs to go and managed to win my ML! Never give up

      Especially if the leader has used all of their chips and you haven't

  25. Dezrar

    You know you're addicted when you dream FPL scenarios, mine last night was Rondon scoring a hat trick...

    Maybe that was my brain replaying his one v Swansea, or maybe it was a premonition for 9 days time...

    1. UnitedFan
      8 months, 8 days ago

      I imagined that Everton hammered Sunderland 4-0. Lukaku hattrick and a Baines pen

      1. Dezrar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        That would be great as well, but 75%+ of active teams would probably enjoy that too...

        1. UnitedFan
          8 months, 8 days ago

          Not my rival as much, he has Coleman 🙂

    2. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      I daydreamed an Aguero mega-haul. Benched.

      1. Dezrar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 8 days ago

        If you're day-dreaming it you're forcing it...

    3. CptCrunch OF FASHANU ZEALAN…

      I always dream about fpl!

              😀 Last time there was a porn debate on here it turned to mayhem. The mods had a busy night removing pages of posts.

                I can imagine the face on Mark as he sifted through the smut. I think taking a -8 hit would be equally as dirty to him

        That would probably explain a lot!

    5. I Member

      Last Saturday I had a dream that Pedro scored. Was seriously disappointed when I woke up and realised it was just a dream.

      And then he scored.

      1. Dezrar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 7 days ago

        See, dreams do come true!

        I also have Pedro, those 10 points on the Sunday were invaluable!

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 months, 7 days ago

          And I also have Rondon so hoping your dream comes true too.

    I've been away and take my eye off the ball a bit...

    Can anyone give me advice on transfers they can see here with a focus on being best prepared for the blank gameweeks (and following DGWs)?

    0.3 and 1FT

    Foster/Pick

    Alonso/ Walker/ F Mori/ Pieters/ Amat

    Sanchez/ Alli/ Stan/ Iwobi/ Fletcher

    Ibra/ Costa/ Lukaku

    Thank you!

  27. Wheato182
    8 months, 8 days ago

    Team good to go for this week guys?

    Foster
    McAuley - Alonso - Mee - Lovren
    Hazard - Ali - Eriksen - Fletcher
    Costa - Lukaku (C)

    Bench - Jaku - Iwobi - Ibra - Kinglsey

    Unsure whether to play Jaku in front of Foster tbh

    1. UnitedFan
      8 months, 8 days ago

      I'd play Jaku

    2. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 8 days ago

      I think Foster, but consensus looks to be Jaku.

    1. UnitedFan
      8 months, 8 days ago

      He was the one who was lazy tracking back, distracting Mustafi for Thiago's first goal

  28. Kings of Lyon ★

    Who would rather have manage your club - Wenger or Frank De Boer?

    1. pompeyfan
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Wenger, every day of the week. Look what he did at Inter! And I was glad to see the back of him at Ajax.

      1. Kings of Lyon ★
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 7 days ago

        If youre still here Pompeyfan, I thought FDB done a good job at Ajax ? He's strongly linked with Rangers, bad move?

        1. pompeyfan
          8 months, 7 days ago

          It was fine the first 2/3 years, but it all got very stale, he isn't flexible and can't change a game. We have a much more progressive manager now.

    2. KingOllie
      8 months, 8 days ago

      Wenger out

      1. UnitedFan
        8 months, 7 days ago

        You're forgetting the 'blud'

  29. MIKEGREAV
    8 months, 8 days ago

    Foster
    Coleman Walker
    Alli Phillips Siggy TCarroll
    Kaku Kane

    Pickford, Ibra, Sanchez, Tony V, Amat, Tymon

    1FT 0.1ITB any thoughts fellas?
