    To be fair, I remember you saying things like the GW3 wildcard and not getting Ben Davies in was a mistake. But it is tough. There was so much pressure on you to stop publicly backing Harry Kane at one point. I couldn't understand at the time why you were going against the weatherstorm of anti Kane sentiment and still being pro-Harry. And in that instance you were vindicated for digging your heels in. It's a tough gig I guess and it only gets tougher the more people watched. I remember when Barack Obama went on live TV and simply said "you know what I screwed up". He received so much praise for that. Sometimes it is tempting to be blunt like that; sometimes it works. But like the above Kane example proved, often it is right to stick to your guns. » Read

    Maybe they haven't got it wrong though. We all said Mark got it wrong about Kane but he was proved right in the end. But no one will ever get it right 100% of the time in FPL. If we were more "look no one is perfect" and less "lol you got it wrong" then maybe the FPL Pundits would be bolder with their predictions and advice. I remember TriggerLips said he always wanted to advocate maverick moves in FPL but feared the backlash. That isn't a good situation for anyone. High profile FPL People shouldn't feel like they have to be conservative in their advice and opinions, and the community and the audience shouldn't be quick to pounce - they should be more accepting and more nonchalant if they get 1 thing out of 20 wrong. These two things would result in better discussions and FPL help all round. » Read

    That's fair enough. The mood music on the scoutcast was anti Aguero across two episodes. Andy said he was a "nostalgia pick". That's fine - I pretty much agreed with everything that was said. I not trying to be "ah-ha, I caught you out, you predicted something that didn't come true!" And yes we can't look at things in isolation, we need to judge over a longer time period. » Read

    I'm not asking for a public apology or anything like that. I got it wrong with Aguero. Maybe we all did. There's no harm in saying that. It doesn't take anything away from anyone. You will all still have our respect and your opinion and advice will still be listened to and valued. I just think it's refreshing - for me personally at least - to start saying "Okay, I got this one wrong. You can't win them all." I don't see what is wrong with that. That's what I would like to do in the future. No one is going to give 100% perfect advice every time. And I do get its more difficult with the viewership being so high to come down on one side of the fence and keep faith with an opinion, so you guys deserve a lot of credit for that. I know I will get a lot of stick for this, and who knows maybe I'm wrong. Maybe long term being reluctant to admit mistakes is good. You took a lot of stick for supporting Kane through his drought and ultimately you we're proved right. So perhaps Aguero won't work… » Read

    I watch it every week too, but it doesn't compare to the scoutcast. No one gets everything right, but for high level FPL debate, there is nothing better out there. » Read

    2 scoutcasts in a row everyone was anti-Aguero and that's fine. I wasn't arguing against them. But let's admit when we get things wrong. What's wrong with that? It turns out, Aguero WAS the right way to go. » Read

    By the way, I looked at getting Aguero in but couldn't do it without a minus 8, so I decided against it. I will freely admit: I got it wrong. » Read

    I have no issue with the scoutcast team getting things wrong. We all make mistakes (me included) and you have to give them credit for putting forward an opinion in front of 35,000 watchers and listeners. But what I would like to know is will they hold their hands up and acknowledge they made a mistake to pour a cold bucket of water over the idea of bringing Aguero in? » Read
