  1. Scout Notes - Swans Keep Salah In Check 16 hours, 32 mins ago

    Smooth: Kun (C) means that choosing Kun over Kane for DGW22 has worked so far, Also got Mahrez in for Alli Rough: Ended last week with Lloris and Pope. Didn't want so much money tied up in keepers, so did Pope > Pereira, only for Lloris to be ill, then did Lloris > Pickford » Read

    If this Arnie news is true, then which of the following sounds like the best move: A) Arnie + Son > Hazard + Fraser (-4) B) Arnie > Mkhi C) Arnie + Firmino > Hazard + Wilson Rest of my attack is: Salah Mahrez Pogba (Son Arnie Firmino) Aguero Quaner » Read

  4. Scout Notes - Saints Frustrate Kane 2 days, 4 hours ago

    Pickford Pereira Azpi Stones Kenny Masuaku Bruno Salah Son Mahrez Pogba Arnie Kun Firmino Quaner Any early suggestions? I'm thinking either Jones in for Bruno, or Son out for any mid below 9M. Kun > Kane planned for GW28. » Read

    When was the last time a team in the top half of the table sacked their manager during the season? Was it Moyes? » Read

  6. Scout Notes - Hazard Hits Back 3 days, 6 hours ago

    No I actually ended up spending 2 hits on my GK apart from my 2FT. I did Pope to Pereira to free funds for a Jones move next week, which left me with Lloris, who then got injured and needed another hit to replace » Read

    So gutted for getting Pickford in for -8 this week. Should have gone for either of the other 2 I was considering (Schmeichel or Butland) » Read

    To be fair, Alli>Maheen even for a hit is a good transfer so it shouldn’t matter so much » Read

    Agreed that racism isn’t funny. But I don’t see how the comment is either racist or funny. » Read

    5.5m a little too expensive for my liking » Read

  14. Spot The Differential - Gameweek 24 3 days, 18 hours ago

    Stuck with a GK dilemma. Have Lloris at the moment with Pereira as "back-up". Between now and next week, I'm looking to ship Lloris and Bruno and get in some United defensive cover. Which looks the better option: ? Pereira Azpi Stones ? Kenny Ogbonna A) De Gea now, some other defender next week B) Pickford now (but also have Kenny), then Jones C) Butland now (to Pickford on WC later), then Jones » Read

    I really like your points and think they are something’s most of us managers conveniently overlook. But I’m going to focus on the 5th (you kind of asked for it there haha) I think coverage is a concept that is grossly misrepresented in FPL context, and one reason is because sometimes it is intrinsically tied to value. It’s about say Christensen + 1.5m VS Alonso or Alli + 3.5m VS Kane. But other times it is not, e.g. Salah VS Mane early in the season, Sterling VS Sane VS Silva a few weeks ago, Hazard VS Morata. But I think the crux in coverage in these two scenarios lies in the following example questions: What fraction of goals by Pool involves Salah/Mane? What fraction of Kane’s goals involves Eriksen/Alli? Subtle difference between the two but we need to break each example down to one of these scenarios and then accordingly look at the corresponding statistics. The principle being that “coverage” is valid only if there is a strong correlation between the points of t… » Read

    Yes, but that’s not what coverage is about. It’s saying that’s team A will get me points and then wanting to ‘cover’ those points through the choice of player. In your example, you’re saying that’s United and City and the rotation pair will get points as well, so you’re not looking to cover Chelsea in the first place. Your choice between say Jones and DDG or Ederson and Stones and Otamendi would be a uestion of coverage. » Read

  19. Dugout Discussion - Man United vs Stoke City 7 days, 16 hours ago

    I've gone Mahrez over Sterling for the next few and have Kun instead of Kane and Pogba instead of Lingard. Now I'm planning for choosing my 3rd def and GK carefully over the next few weeks, apart from Azpi and Stones (currently have Lloris and Kenny/Ogbonna rotation). One thing that's helped is getting some benchwarmers in. Already gone for Joel Pereira and Quaner, and may get a 4.0def in as well since rotation is not going to be too much over the next few and can FH in 28. » Read

  20. Scout Notes - Pogba outguns Lingard 7 days, 16 hours ago

    A pretty smooth week all along: Starting with Arnautovic, then Son, then Salah/Firmino and finally Pogba (C) to end 4 short of 100. First time all 7 front men got me returns this season! » Read
