  1. Scout Report - Mathew Ryan 20 hours, 53 mins ago

    I think Capoue may go down at the greatest FFS bandwagon of them all - the only downside was that too many of us who had him in GWK 1 benched him early on. We should have had more faith in that bandwagon.Few apart from us lot spotted that he was getting more forward in friendlies. » Read

    Danny Graham at Swansea....was like a one man goal machine in friendlies, a one man blank machine from GWK 1 onwards. » Read

    Fantasy Footbal Scout daily hot topicWhat are your top cheap defensive/goalkeeper pairings for the first few games of the season.As the article says Ryan rotates well with Southampton's Frazer Forster - who also enjoys favourable early fixtures. Brighton and Huddersfield also rotate well.Anyone keen on a SOU/BTN or BTN/HUDD double up?If not what are your preferred match ups? » Read

  7. Great Expectations - Sadio Mane 1 day, 22 hours ago

    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topicNavigating Liverpool's midfield minefield.Just when you thought selecting the best Liverpool midfielder couldn't get any tougher - they look to be signing Salah - to further confuse us.So with Mane, Firmino, Coutinho, Salah and to a lesser extent Lallana all competing for our attention which one or two do you have your eye on. Obviously price will come into it - but its probably safe to say Firmino, Mane and Coutinho will get a price hike.Or will you avoid them altogether and go for players in other teams that are more dominant points scorers? This was, after all a tactic, that was deployed very effectively by 16/17 FPL winner Ben Crabtree. » Read

    That's a great film. I quite liked the sequel too. » Read

  9. Scout Report - Davy Klaassen 2 days, 42 mins ago

    Omen, Shining and Halloween for me. The 1970s was golden era of horror. Of those perhaps Omen.American Werewolf in London another favourite.Among more recent ones I really liked Drag Me to Hell. » Read

  10. Development Squad - Update Two Is Live 2 days, 22 hours ago

    If Alli is priced the same as Eriksen this info will be very useful indeed.Alli wins the eye test every time for me....but the BPS test favours Eriksen clearly. » Read

  11. Development Squad - Update Two Is Live 2 days, 22 hours ago

    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topicTime to stop penalising players that get tackled?As our latest Members stats update says -The BPS penalises a player a single point each time they are “tackled” in a match. However, this is not, as you might expect, based on tackles lost. Instead, it’s a combination of the failed Take Ons and the Opta Dispossessed statistic.Is this fair that players like Costa and Alli are so heavily penalised for bonus points for being tackled. Surely the fact that they are launching so many raids in the box and attracting tackles should be rewarded? Or do you think the present FPL BPS system is correct - they could after all dodge the tackles perhaps? » Read

  12. Great Expectations - Leroy Sane 3 days, 18 hours ago

    My predictionAlli 10m Eriksen 9.5I consider that the same price bracket though...but would be more interesting as it is asking managers backing Eriksen to predict he will outscore last year's higher scorer. » Read

  13. Great Expectations - Leroy Sane 3 days, 18 hours ago

    There is a lot to be said byhopoing on a budget-mid price striker bandwagon early on.....they can build on that confidence - seen it time and again, especially my first season with that bloke from Wigan - Zaki. I'll be jumping on the next Negredo next season - get em whle they are hot - as they cool down pretty quickly. » Read

  14. Great Expectations - Leroy Sane 3 days, 18 hours ago

    Indeed. They will price players to how well they expect them to do. Wouldn't surprise me if Alli was 9.5 to 10 as he got a monster total last season and is getting better as a fantasy asset, plays for top team etc.As far as I can see there are a variety of factors they take into account...previous form and prospects key to that.It actually wouldn't surprise me to see Alli at 10m. Where the FPL price setters game play may come into it is how they price Eriksen and Alli. will they be the same? Or will they invite us to get the cheaper one by pricing one 0.5 lower?If I was a price setter I would definitely look to add an element of gameplay into pricing - invite Fantasy managers to make tough decisions. » Read

  15. Great Expectations - Leroy Sane 3 days, 18 hours ago

    My main wish is to have a good array of 5-8.5 strikers. Last season's lack of forwards in that price range was awful. Need my fix of Darren Bent esque mid priced forward goal action. » Read

  16. Great Expectations - Leroy Sane 3 days, 18 hours ago

    Given my rank I wouldn't say last season was my most enjoyable....but it was certainly the most interesting I can remember due to the problems fitting all the good players in. By the end I didn't want the season to end the end of 14/15 and 15/16 (get Vahrez early, set alarm clock to gwk 38) I was bored and couldn't wait for them to end.So there is definitely something to be said for game play by having too many heavy hitters. » Read

  17. Great Expectations - Leroy Sane 3 days, 18 hours ago

    Also Andy makes a good point re number of heavy hitters. Having more than three 10m players is really tough at the start ....last season I could have started with four of Kane, Alli, Eriksen, firmino no problem. Next season I won't be able to afford that quartet hence the hot topic on finding next season's 8-8.5 players. » Read

  18. Great Expectations - Leroy Sane 3 days, 18 hours ago

    I can see Alli and Eriksen in the 9.5-10m category. Sort of how Ozil was priced this season.Also last season saw lots more midfielders in that 8-8.5 category perform better. the previous season there were less.Looking over the way prices change season to season players that do well for a good side and look to be nailed on with strong prospects the following season tend to get price rises.Also not sure the prices are based on a proportion - I think it depends on the season. If lots of mids do well one season then you can't stop a deserved price hike because the quota is full up. I'd be surprised if they stick to a rigid quota system. » Read

    That is very well put.It's fun to guess though 🙂 » Read

  20. Moving Target - Harry Maguire 3 days, 19 hours ago

    Yep, even the chips was easy for veterans - we all just assumed they would work best around doubles...two seasons into chips and that has been proved correct. » Read
