    I will most likely hold Kane - as said just something to consider. But Kane's record against the big boys this season isn't great. » Read

    Odd rest perhaps but Alonso is still number one choice....especially while Emerson gets up to speed. I only want Alonso for GWK 25-27 if he's blanking GWK 28. » Read

    I already did Eriksen to Mahrez prior to the weekend. Now looking at Alli to Shaqiri and Kenny/Schindler to Alonso for my two frees ahead of GWK 25. But two tempting other swaps remain. Hazard has an incredible track record against Bournemouth. He could be a great captaincy pick. The problem with this move is that I'm not sure I want Hazard long term. Kane to Aguero (c) and Alli to Shaqiri. The priblem with this move is less about Aguero (c) and more about whether Salah(c) is better. Would be annoying to make this bold move and then see my current captain Salah outscore the Argentinian. » Read

    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topic Spurs replacements The Double Gameweek 22 hangover still carries on for many with the likes of Alli, Son and Eriksen still in our sides. With three tough games coming up now looks the ideal time to swap one of these Spurs assets out. What are your plans for your Spurs midfielders? Keeping hold? If ditching - who for? And what of Kane - is he ditchable over the next three - for Aguero perhaps? Or is that too bold a move considering the Tottenham talisman's explosive potential? » Read

    Indeed. Early transfers for the odd 0.1 here and there is lunacy with so much cup football to be played. Sadly couldn’t get tickets to Yeovil v Man Utd but will certainly enjoy on TV. Watch out for Yeovil’s Otis khan - top player and ex Man Utd youth player. » Read

    Well yes. 🙂 Although most swapped Kane out for rooney or Firmino which is ok, but not if they captained elsewhere and it backfired. » Read

    For me its strong underlying stats, Stoke looking better, strong fixtures, best player in his team, assist and goal threat, great value. Ideal Alonso 'enabler', ideal Spurs mid replacement for a few weeks. Also it's because when I mention him on the Scoutcast I always misprounce him as Shakira. His emerging form and fixtures don't lie 😉 » Read

  12. The Pre-Match Preamble - Gameweek 24 1 day, 5 hours ago

    I said that Andy had said he couldn't remember the last time he'd look at a price site. I look at price sites all the time as I write articles about players and include detail about transfers in. Also have to look closely every Thurs and Friday when compiling the scout picks. I did say that I'm not motivated by price changes though as usually price changes follow form. But not true to claim I said I don't look at price sites. » Read

    I swerved his cruelty in FPL but have been living the nightmare in Sky for weeks now. » Read

    Given Maguire's now 5.4 I think I may be swayed by Schmeichel. Everton defence still looks very suspect. » Read

    City are unique this season. No team like them as an attacking unit. » Read

  16. Scout Notes - Aguero Roars Back To Form 1 day, 6 hours ago

    Could be, in the meantime he continues to bring in points and has great fixtures. I'll happily wave him off at the end of January if he can keep scoring before he jets off. The indications from Leicester seems to be he's staying put until the summer though...but by beginning of Feb he'll likely rise in price again. » Read

    Good point - could be that Mane is a great option for a few weeks - especially to replace a Spurs midfielder. » Read

    Liverpool at home are far different than away. Agree on the road they are prone to conceding but they are rock solid at home. Man Utd is an awful game for them - Mourinho will bring his biggest bus. Granted Arsenal could go either way. Hard to call that one. But definitely two very, very tricky ones for Kane there while Aguero faces easier sides. As said this is something to conisder, and a move certainly with risk... but as the article above states already many are doing Kane to Aguero...and as with this week so far, it could be them that prosper. » Read

    And Alonso and a strong midfield of Salah and Sterling and others. Tricky - and sacrifices would have to be made. » Read

    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topic Key lessons from Gameweek 24 so far… Here are a few lessons to consider from the Gameweek so far. Feel free to comment on these and detail your own. Template busting Leicester march on. Across all positions the Foxes have a strong option for their stellar run of games. With their third clean sheet in a row Schmeichel and Maguire looks strong options, with the latter contining to impress in FPL’s bonus system. In midfield Mahrez is continuing his fine form with a goal against Watford, while Albrighton looks a strong option with those on a budget. Up front Vardy also impresses, scoring a penalty against the Hornets. But get aboard their bandwagons quickly if you want to beat the template – as they will soon be the template. Already Mahrez has had a price rise and is now among the top picks among the top 10K. He is the third most transferred in midfielder so far. Maguire is also the third most transferred in his position, whil… » Read
