    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topicEuro defendersWith the possibility of Sweden's Viktor Nilsson Lindelof being nailed on for 4m does this alter the names in your back line?Who are your current defenders? Are they cheap as chips, premium picks or a nice mixture of both? » Read

    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topicEuros – is cutting corners on value worth it?With the likes of Muller proving popular picks (see Lyonnais look at the FFS community template http://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2016/05/29/euro-2016-team-analysis-slovakia/?hc_page=2#hc_comment_13394437) there is a real need to look for a few value players to free up funds.But would it be better to spread the value across the team rather than cutting corner?What do you think of shunning some ‘on paper’ better, but more expensive, options for their cheaper versions?Hamsik with his five goals in qualifying is a case in point. Can his much cheaper teammate Mak with just two goals compete? Or is the money saved and invested elsewhere worth cutting corners with Slovakia? » Read

    If he assists most of Aguero's annual 20 plus goals and scores around 5-10 himself, then surely he is. that's actually quite a realistic prospect. » Read

    According to speculation he's not safe from the axe. Could be time to cash in and move on if Guardiola doesn't rate him, sad as that is. » Read

    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topicPep's Man City RevolutionIn all the excitement about Mourinho’s appointment at Manchester United I thought it was time to remember that there’s another revolution going on across the city.According to press reports Guardiola is set for a mass clear out, with most of the current team either moved on or consigned to squad player status.http://www.espnfc.co.uk/blog/transfer-talk/79/post/2880984/pep-guardiola-tells-man-city-he-needs-eight-new-starters-ahead-of-2016-17With Aguero, KDB and the poor Fantasy choice Fernandinho the only likely starters according to these reports this presents a set of new challenges for Fantasy managers.Firstly, Aguero and De Bruyne are likely to be among the game’s most expensive players. Owning both from the off is going to be tough. Which would you go for if , as expected Aguero is once again in the £12-13m category and De Bruyne over £10m?Secondly, what of the new recruits? Of the rumoured n… » Read

    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topicOver in our community articles section this morning Ludo has published this excellent analysis of the psychology of Fantasy management.http://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2016/05/26/the-psychology-of-fantasy-football/This offers a look at some of the pitfalls we fall into and why sometimes our biases can pay off.I thought I'd use this to start a discussion on your mindset when playing Fantasy Football.Are you heavily biased when it comes to price or whether a player is perceived as being 'due'?Do you make decisions to keep up with the herd? » Read

    As Kavali's community article on the veterans showed - experienced FPL managers adapted very easily to them. They are the new normal to us lot. » Read

  13. Euro 2016 Team Analysis - France 6 days, 4 hours ago

    I know from my own mini leagues - where the majority wasted them - most have said to me since that they won't repeat that mistake again. I reckon there will be enough who have learned...but yes, hopefully most will continue like lab rats to be doomed to repeat their errors. :-) » Read

  14. Euro 2016 Team Analysis - France 6 days, 4 hours ago

    I suspect though they will remain. Things that give people more points are generally a good thing for FPL as they keep more people interested for longer.I think what will happen though next season is many of those who wasted their chips and wildcard outside of the double gameweeks will not make that mistake again. I think it'll make it harder to use those dgwks to steal a march....which makes KoL's research into the best way to use the chips and wildcard around dgwks so vital for us. » Read

  16. Euro 2016 Team Analysis - France 6 days, 4 hours ago

    Wildcard in GWK 36, bench boost GWK 37 strategy looks a winner. Also helped him get a great final GWK score as he'd wildcarded so late. Proves that arranging the wildcard around the doubles really paid off. » Read

    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topicEuros 2016 midfield malaise.Perhaps like many I'm not having too much trouble finding good forward and defensive picks for my Euro 2016 team. With the likes of Muller, Giroud and Bale we have lots of choice. At the back Portugal' fine defensive record in qualifying is just one of a number of pointers to the players we can draft in.But in midfield many well known options either appear to be underperformers for the country, overpriced out of position attackers or defensive midfielders that score poorly now recoveries etc have been taken out of the scoring.What is your midfield looking like. Who are the best picks for the first round of fixtures? Who are the nailed on bargains? Who are the premium picks worth splasching the cash on? » Read
