    Will Rashford play both? For me, Mourinho has to protect him for City. » Read

  2. The ScoutCast - Episode 222 - Intense 9 days, 20 hours ago

    Yeah, and I just spent the night doing a show in which I discussed Zlatan, only to have it rendered pointless by tonight's events.Another twist - what a season.Gotta feel for the early Zlatan adopters. We can knock 'em for going early but, lets face it, we've all been tempted when those 0.1's start to pinch. » Read

    Nah. Every chance he will have to be rested at Burnley, surely? Jose will 100% want him vs City and won't risk injury/fatigue at Burnley.I think Rooney may well start that one. » Read

    Yes. I. Never.Stop.Was just waiting on Mourinho quotes to arrive. » Read

    Jonty raised the goal involvement stat last night and it is impressive. Plus there's litlte doubt that Boro have to go for broke.My issue is that Negredo is not difficult to stop. He's not mobile, he needs services and Boro don't have that in spades. Both Bournemouth and even Sunderland can silence him unless those around him are on top of their game.His fixtures are far stronger and I do think there's a goal in it for him, but I just prefer Benteke's more direct threat - playing to his strengths is just far more straightforward - the level of service required is basically, a deep, high flighted cross as we saw from Townsend vs Leicester.In both cases, I don't we'll see big returns but Benteke gets it for me with his GW35 fixture vs Burnley. » Read

    It's a bad scenario - we hype it up but then, as we get closer, we inevitably get cold feet. Saw it with City and Aguero last time.But in that one, I spent 8 thinking that Aguero, Sane and Sterling, over two matches, would get me that back - but even then the players sold - Firmino and Coutinho - really hurt me a week later.This looks tougher - Zlatan's potential vs Lukaku at West Ham and Kane as a captaincy option is the key element for me.Those two strikers are in such form, it seems remiss to back against them and I think it's fair enough to consider these factors before diving in.Zlatan for free is perhaps a simple decision - provided we're convinced on two starts. Zlatan for -8 seems a tough call for me. » Read

    Got to say KDB has been a disappointment - despite his points tally. » Read

  8. Scout Notes - Champions League - Tuesday 11 days, 6 hours ago

    Hehe...not really, I'd rather leave the idea that four blokes chatting from their lounges can impact the meta of the game. » Read

    Besides, I thought it was me against the rest last night. Az might waver on Zlatan if United progress on Thursday but I think that's fair enough.I really do believe GW34 gives us plenty to be scared of - the players we potentially overlook for DGW assets are strong, while the DGW assets are just not convincing IMO.But, as we've seen so often, the DGW can shock us - for good or bad. » Read

    See below. Wasn't but now thinking about it more.I guess Thursday is key - both the result and his performance. » Read

  12. This Much We Know - Gameweek 33 11 days, 20 hours ago

    Once again the ScoutCast has me wavering.Scared of Zlatan of course and can see a way with Heaton, McAuley, Lukaku to Hennessey, Boro Def, Ibra for -8.Looks a clear option - can absorb a couple of price changes too. Sleeping on it. » Read

    We can schedule posts to go out. It was written earlier on the commute home 😉 » Read

  14. DraftKings - Champions League - Free $3 Entry 11 days, 23 hours ago

    Yeah, I'd go that route if I didn't have Benteke. Even so, I really fancy Siggy vs Stoke. Now or never for Swans. » Read

  15. DraftKings - Champions League - Free $3 Entry 11 days, 23 hours ago

    I'd be really tempted to go C but then I'm really against Ibra right now - probably irrationally so.For me, both Siggy and Alonso can deliver in GW34 so, when you factor in the hit, Ibra might need to get you 2 goals. » Read

    Oh, I can't help retrieve old FPL accounts. Well I might be able to but then I'd be inundated with emails 😉 » Read

    Good post, although the comment - "do you want 4 extra games from your worst players, or 2 extra games from your best player?"Not strictly true if you WC in 36 because you can build a bench which is as strong as possible and in 37, you have plenty of choice to help build that. Granted, it's a rotation minefield, though. » Read

    Nice - congrats. Still not given up on cracking the 100. Not sure I can make it without pulling off some miracle differential, though. » Read
