  1. The FFS Cup – Sponsored by FanDuel – The Final 23 days, 3 hours ago

    It's on the list to sort but, as we're not supporting Sky as a main game this season, it's obviously become a lower priority.We're actually in the process of recruiting a full-time coder to help out Ed - interviews about to start - so this will be one of the first tasks he can take on as it will be simple enough to fix. » Read

    I was just about to comment on your rank but then remembered the ScoutCast curse. You almost got me. Almost. » Read

  3. The FFS Cup – Sponsored by FanDuel – The Final 23 days, 5 hours ago

    I've seen it...seems to be handbags involving questioning Jonty's advice on the podcast. Some rank banter but nothing spiteful - we've had worse on the ScoutCast itself. I'll check in on it, though. » Read

  4. The FFS Cup – Sponsored by FanDuel – The Final 23 days, 10 hours ago

    Yep. Me too. I'd like to say I fell on my sword to avoid further embarrassment having won it previously. But, actually, I had my worst GW of the season in qualifying. » Read

  5. Scout Notes - EFL Cup - Thursday 23 days, 14 hours ago

    Ah, I get ya.Well, reading between the lines, that might be the case. Though there was rumour of a Rose knock prior to Poch's comments.Easy for managers to escalate knocks to justify rotatation - can't blame them.Credit to Conte for not doing that, tbf. » Read

    Has he said they miss out through injury? » Read

  8. Scout Notes - EFL Cup - Thursday 23 days, 15 hours ago

    There's a reason behind that - a flag can be added with a report(s) generated by the press without confirmation from the club - a doubt generated by the press, with reports to accompany it, creates doubt on that player and FPL managers should therefore be warned.Flags are normally only removed when the clubs or the players confirm availability. As the clubs only speak on Thursday/Friday, then the doubt flags normally remain until that point.If a flag is removed purely on the basis of a press report or an image of a player in training and then the manager then expresses doubt on Thurs/Fri, then the flag would then need to go back on and that would surely cause even more frustration.Consider that, it can only takes a manager to say "he should be available" to create doubt on a player so an image or a report of a player back in training on a Tuesday can be reversed when the manager speaks on a Thurs/Fri.Would folk really want flags coming on and off constantly based on repor… » Read

  9. The ScoutCast - Episode 212 - Forearmed 23 days, 17 hours ago

    How does Zeki Fryers, a young prospect, feel today. Two identical players brought in on the left-side to presumably cover the LB situation putting him fourth in the pecking order. » Read

    A bun for anyone who can guess how it's going to work with Schlupp.I'm struggling to find two more similar players in the Premier League so why get em both? » Read

  13. The Digest - Gameweek 22 24 days, 12 hours ago

    As I've said previously, when the FPL decided to up their content to multiple daily articles, dedicated social channels, TV show etc there was always going to be more information out there. It's inevitable, it's their game and they want to share more information on it. Nobody can stop them doing that. And, as I've said before, if we weren't involved (and we've been working with them for five seasons), they would be hiring others to provide the same information.We did always talk about the double GW's and blanks in our articles for them over the years, it's just they weren't daily and, crucially, there was no social media channels to push them out and raise awareness of them.Our job on FFS is to make sure we always go deeper - the Premier League material will never be able to go into the depth and detail that we do here or the level that we discuss on the ScoutCast - so we will always have more scope on our pages and articles to embrace the subjects further.In my view, those… » Read

  14. Scout Notes - EFL Cup - Wednesday 24 days, 17 hours ago

    It kind of seals Hazard's fate for me.I might hold for this week but Hazard to a Phillips or Mirallas, allowing me to upgrade both Amat and Anichebe to decent GW26 and 28 assets now looks certain. » Read

    The doubts surrounding Brunt's back injury are legacies from last week - not new reports as far as I can see. Pulis hasn't brought up new concerns, while he mentioned Brunt as a doubt prior to Spurs. Local reports also don't mention Brunt as a doubt and actually say he's likely to start at LB if Nyom is not considered.I think Nyom is on the bench with Brunt at LB, regardless of Nyom's availability. » Read
