The ScoutCast – Episode 123 – Ghost

The title summons up imagery of Granville straddling me at the Potter’s wheel, lovingly helping to craft a clay creation as we unite to sculpt out a Van Persie bust – in true Lionel Ritchie’s “Hello” style.

That’s probably lost approximately half of our potential audience who are too young to recall the analogy. The other half are likely to be repelled by the image of Granville and I caught in a Swayze/Moore-like clinch.

If you’re part of the minority still sticking around, curious to hear how the above nonsense translates into a podcast, then listen up. You’ll catch the plenty of Wildcard ribbing, a tale of captain calamity exposed by this week’s community questions and the usual array of regulars.

      Right then. Vote away.

      Adrian Mannone
      Ivanovic Azpi Evans Olsson Ward
      Mata Haz Lallana xx xx
      Rooney Suarez xx

      A) Bentekke, Eriksen, Pilkington/Puncheon
      B) Studge, Eriksen, Noone
      C) Ade, Mirallas, Snodgrass

      Personally prefer B since Studge and Eriksen bring in big points. Maybe Studge -> Tekkers next week. A or B i think.

                If there is a certainty. The way i see it, its all one fecking gamble anyway. I'll keep my options open and having Noone gives me that flexibility.

                    Hence having a Studge makes sense. Easy shift to a Neg/Dzeko/Kun

                        I still feel like it's crazy that people are getting both Mata and RVP/Rooney now

                        We've had 23 weeks of mediocrity from United

                                Nope. We were 5 points behind league leaders Arsenal once we beat them. Then Carrick and RVP got injured. Then Rooney got injured.

                                Now Rooney RVP and Mata are fit.

                                    I'm not saying I'm not tempted. I own Mata.

                                    But until they play someone off the park I'm just not sure I can justify 1/5+ of my budget on them.

                                        Sometimes, we ought to take a gamble and with the top United players deem fit to play, I think this is a turn of fortunes for them.

                                          What's the point in buying RVP after his hattrick?

                                              When did he score a hatrick? His first game back he scored 8 points.

                                                  The point I'm making is that you need to buy players before they score big, not after. Get in before you get the points, get in after and you only get TV.

                                                  RVP coming back with Mata and Rooney behind him is a good bet IMO

                                                      We all know from experience that Mata and RVP are capable of scoring big but according to the stats there are much better options available.

                                                      Obviously Mata's stats are not reliable due to the way Mourinho played him and his lack of game time but RVP's are more reliable.(using points per game and points per million per game to compare)

                                                      However, this could all change. As things stand I have Mata but have yet to decide who will be me my Aguero replacement, if anyone.

                                                          MU midfield was the problem - stikers don't score without service. It's a lot better now with Mata in there and his arrival has given the team a psychological boost. World class striker, improved service and confidence = well worth a punt IMO

                                                              I have not seen anything from Moyes yet to suggest that they have turned the corner.

                                                              By getting RVP I would be doing so on a hunch and in hope that he replicates the form of last season but we know it is possible.

                                                            Sorry was away.

                                                            I like both 1 and 2 but don't need the hit. 2. Not Gru.

Chambers has started 8 of the last 9. I don't understand this talk of him being dropped. He seems fairly nailed on to me. I think it is 50\50 between Collins or Tompkins on who will be dropped when Reid returns.

I don't think Silva is gonna outscore the mid-priced ones too much, fitness issues as well. Sturridge could do really well and is safe and consistent.

                                                                                              Open Controls

Hard to justify the huge amount RVP costs but could work out spectacularly, also gives you easy way of getting Aguero back when he is ft again.

                                                                                                  Open Controls

Chambers seems a steal at 3.9M if he can nail down a spot, so taking a little risk there and going with the big dawg up top. Penos and spearhead role in a United attack that (hopefully) will start working.

                                                                                                But wait first if there will be news on Aguero's injury

                                                                                                    Rooney could be the option.. Also considering quite a few of the of the cheaper options.

                                                                                                        Of course you will have to have a decent bench if he isn't going to start some game.

                                                                                                        But yeah you can't be 100% sure

Hopefully they do the same for Taarabt.

Tekkers and RVP = great diffs. You might have a problem in defense going forward, but nothing pressing. Looks good! I'd (c) Suarez, just owning RVP is enough of a diff for me.
