  1. Scout Report - Laurent Depoitre 1 day, 13 hours ago

    Hi RCA.Okay - Comment counts have been declining, folk are using other methods to talk about Fantasy Football. That was really inevitable, though. Social media is now huge and every day a new Twitter account crops up offering comment and advice for FPL. That will go on. We now share the Fantasy Football conversation with lots of other sources.Let's face it, the volume of comments on this site in past seasons has been bordering on ridiculous, so a decline in the face of social media's growth was on the cards.However, our visitor counts were up considerably last season and, for the new season, another set of new visitors will arrive and some will post.So there is a churn of Fantasy Football players, just like any community. We can't be arrogant enough to think that all the wise heads, great posters and worthy opinion came to FFS and have been and gone. I can't stop others claiming that but I'm not going to dwell on it. I'd love to see some folk come back and post here, yo… » Read

    Thanks. Sadly, I never use Chrome on IOS but will test on that.Sounds like that this is mainly Android, though? » Read

    Yes, Berahino is one to consider. We obviously have to be wary, though. Stoke's opening fixtures are testing and he's going to have to have a helluva of a pre-season to win trust from the off. » Read

    I just liked having big funds across five midfielders - I think it gave me an advantage in terms of being able to move for the next form option in that position. Much depends on whether we start the season with a Josh King equivalent, though. » Read

    Yeah, see above, I'm wary that I may end up wandering down the "Anichebe avenue" again. » Read

    I think that's likely. The assist record is strong enough to justify that and we've seen it before with the most fancied promoted defenders - Keane being the most recent example. » Read

    Yeah, week of, and I don't believe it will be Monday or the Friday for obvious reasons. » Read

    I'm thinking the same but I'm sure that once I start working with prices and building the midfield, that idea will soon be dismissed. I'm still leaning towards 3-5-2 as my starting formation. » Read

    Hehe...a classic. We were so hopeful! » Read

    I'm not sure if Deeney will fit the third striker profile - I see his price remaining around the 7.0 mark which might just be too steep. I guess much depends on how we set up in midfield.Deeney could be a strong option, though now that Silva is installed. I can't see him being benched as he was under Mazzarri over the run-in. » Read

    Morning folks. So Depoitre adds to the cast of promoted strikers and today’s hot topic is based on these assets.Do we really see any of them fitting the bill as a third striker?Depoitre may actually be the best option on offer currently. Gayle would seem the most likely but is injury prone and it’s not clear if Rafa trusts him. I’d still expect the Magpies to bring in a new option.Murray is the current Brighton option but will likely struggle again at the top level.If we can’t look to these guys, who do we feel is likely to be our best option in the sub 6.0 bracket? » Read

    Okay comments back in now - issue addressed. Sorry about that. » Read

    Well they were enabled then get switched off again. I think because I changed category on the article. Now I'm away from my Mac I can't fix. » Read

    Sadly there's nothing I can do for hours - I don't have access to the admin tools in my mobile. I will enable when I'm home but that will be early evening. I will apologise to GB. » Read

    We have an issue I'm trying to fix - I've no idea why the comments keep getting disabled and I'm away from laptop and only access on mobile. Please be patient I'm trying to get this fixed. » Read

    The Arsenal option has been tricky in recent seasons. If they do fare well, who is our target? I can't trust Koscielny again after last season's DGW disaster. » Read

    They haven't been strong for a couple of seasons. We have to think that he'll address this and I think Dawson could be moved to CB. However, Leicester are trying to prise Evans away so there could be upheaval. » Read

    Yep, you have to think that without Europa League they should benefit. Pellegrino looks set to be a key man in our season from the off with their fixtures. » Read
