    mail me at mark@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk with details of your handset and browser etc - we'd want to look into this. » Read

    I'm looking at Duffy for short-term. Dunk if I have to go to 4.4. » Read

    Sit tight. It's like I said last week - we came off Kane and Lukaku blanks and seven goals for City - some real extremes and it was dangerous to make judgments against that backdrop. Similarly, again this week, Pep's rotation has created an unusual Gameweek that has punished some severely. But again, we shouldn't react in the extreme by quitting or making rage transfers. Things will surely level out again, perhaps even next Gameweek. » Read

    Nope, I was red flagged. Labyrinthitis. » Read

    You'd have thought that Gundogan will get a start sooner or later. Seemed to love the guy when fit last season. » Read

    I get the feeling you'll have the last laugh in GW9 PoP. Aguero back I reckon - the rest could be a lottery. » Read

    I think Trippier and Davies remain first choice but I think Rose and Aurier will start getting the "easier" fixtures. Davies will still get 1 in 4 starts for me, perhaps 1 in 5 but much depends on whether Rose comes in and impresses, which he could, very easily. » Read

    True but for me, Vardy's complete and instant transformation under Shakespeare hints that he was very much "his player". Makes me wonder how he will react. » Read

    Coming tomorrow - ideally with a quick movie. Didn't want to delay going live so it's a "soft launch". » Read

    Personally, I want to avoid making any decisions on Kane and Lukaku in a week that they blank and City score seven. » Read

    Yes, it was United's official site that chose to run with them being ruled out. Mourinho was ambiguous. When that happens, the alarm bells ring. » Read

    He deserves our patience because he can be devastating. We can go without him due to the home matches but I see that as putting our neck on the line and backing that to continue - even with the matches we've had and the data we've got, I still see that as a risk. Look at his home fixtures to come. We can point to theories on why it would be but we're talking about a potentially world class striker, in probably the second best team in England, managed by one of the worlds best young managers. If the theories on pitch size, opponents set-up etc are true, do we not think that this combination can't work out methods to counter it? Eventually. I doubt any of us will be in a position to constantly swap him in and out with fixture, so to go without him is backing the home form to continue and going without his returns in away games. As we know, we're not just talking 6 point returns here either. » Read

    Superb post Ruth, which effectively sums up my thoughts on Spurs. If we run a compare of Spurs after eight matches this season to last, the results are very surprising. I was expecting to see regression but that's not the case - if anything, the numbers suggest that Spurs 2017 are ahead of Spurs 2016 after eight Gameweeks in terms of goal threat. They are even level for Big Chances and yet they have clearly struggled in this area compared to the other "contenders". Good points about the Liverpool game too. It might be an entirely different prospect to the previous four home matches. » Read

    It wasn't really naivety. I do know how Mourinho works. It was more futile hope that good would win out over evil this time 😉 » Read

  16. Dugout Discussion - Watford vs Arsenal 9 days, 7 hours ago

    Hehe. I'm not sure it was quite as bad as that 😉 but appreciate the support. Can't pretend I don't regret doubting United's ability to hold on, just had this romantic idea of Salah scoring. » Read

    Yes. Exactly. You don't need stats to tell us that Kane will regress and won't score two goals in every away game. » Read
