Scoutcast Episode 288 – Missing

Undaunted by a heavily reduced fixture list, the Scoutcast crew deliver one of their longest episodes of the season.

There may be only five matches taking place in Gameweek 31 but Joe, Luke, Az and David discover there is a wealth of different player options and strategies to deploy.

Discarding their usual player, team and talking point format for the community questions section, they focus in detail on the best assets to own position by position this weekend. 

While there is a consensus around goalkeepers, our Scoutcast regulars find plenty to disagree about among defenders, midfielders and strikers.

Luke is packing his team with differential ‘swords’ to attack the fixtures, while David is making sure he uses his two free transfers to include some ‘shields’ to keep up with the pack. 

Az is on the search for low-owned assets too and is even considering a notorious Scoutcast ‘magic bean’. Unsurprisingly, Joe is not keen.

The number of hits to take in a Blank Gameweek also get an airing, as does advice for those deploying a Free Hit chip to cope with player reduction. 

Regular features are also included, with the round-up of the previous Gameweek giving Az a rare chance this season to boast about a good score.

Best differentials, top clean sheet shouts and transfer and captaincy plans for the Gameweek ahead are also revealed.

    Messi has now scored 35 or more goals in a season for 11 seasons in a row.

      11 seasons wonder

    2. pjomara

      I'm trying to think (unsuccessfully) of someone in English football who has even scored 10 or more goals in 11 successive seasons???

      1. JURGEN FLOPP #BOTTLEJOB

        kane will do that

      2. Peter Ouch

        Don't compare Messi and CR with anyone. Pure class.

        1. pjomara

          Jimmy Greaves is the only one who can come anywhere near to their stats.

      3. Eat my goal!
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Rooney

          1. pjomara

            3 months, 5 days ago

            Good shout, Rooney hit double figures 12 seasons in a row at Man U. One season getting 14 stops him from 12 seasons of 15+.

            Lampard managed double figures 10 seasons in a row.

            1. Eat my goal!
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Shearer was also prolific however he had 2 slips over 17 years

                3 months, 5 days ago

                Lampard stat is impressive for a mid... 35 a year though... Even in Spain... Is simply untouchable.

          2. fantasyxprt11

            Frank Lampard

            Not sure I buy into this comparison to be honest. 11 seasons in a row needs a lot of luck with injuries and the premier league is way way more physical than La Liga.

            1. pjomara
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              There's some right butchers in Spain though most if them out for his blood. Lampard averaged 35 pl games over one spell of 9 seasons .

          4. JT11fc
              3 months, 5 days ago

              Super franky lampard

              1. Brooksy86
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Possibly one of the most underrated footballers. Always preferred him to Gerrard.

          5. elchilangles
              3 months, 5 days ago

              he's scored 50 or more goals 5 times!!!!

              Will he play? Currently have him on a FH...

            Is there a table to compare teams defences?

          8. HIT ME!
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            This is probably how my team will look like after making transfers.

            Lössl (Speroni)
            Robbo TAA Tarkowski Lascelles (Bednarek)
            Salah Hazard Fraser Barnes (Pogba)
            Wilson Barnes (Jimenez)

            10.5m ITB. Any hits worth considering?

            1. Tsparkes10
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Speroni to Boruc or Lascelles to Luiz?

                1. HIT ME!
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 5 days ago

                  Lössl to Boruc I'm not sure it's worth a hit. Been considering Lascelles to Luiz/Azpi.

              • semiconductor
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                I am not keen on Hazard at all personally. Are you?

                1. HIT ME!
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 5 days ago

                  He's a good pick for the blanks, no doubt

            2. semiconductor
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              Who to lose till end of the season probably
              1. Doherty
              2. WB
              3. Bendarek

                • 8 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Number 3 so he doesn’t get offended by the spelling

                1. semiconductor
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 5 days ago

                  I'm sure he will let it go

            3. hawkeyes
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              Help please. Using my FH and don't know who to pick as staring 11. Currently on:

              Fabianski
              Alexander-Arnold Digne David Luiz
              Hazard Salah(c) Fraser Mané Lanzini
              Vardy Wilson

              SUB: Hamer Rondón Aké Rice

              I'm doubtful about starting Lanzini over Rondon (Just have a feeling that Lanzini will do better)
              Also since the bench might not be used, is there anyone in my starting 11 who needs to be upgraded.

              1. Ojpsan1
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 5 days ago

                I'd ditch digne for rice or ake

                1. hawkeyes
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 5 days ago

                  Thanks,

                  Would you then downgrade Digne and use the money to change any of the starting 11?

                  1. Ojpsan1
                    • 1 Year
                    3 months, 5 days ago

                    Nope looks good otherwise

              2. Freddiebell
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Looks a nice team but you do know the F/Hitters in Gw32 are going to hurt anyone who hasn't a FH for that week.

                1. hawkeyes
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 5 days ago

                  But GW 32 only has United and Wolves with DGW...and I have that covered. Or am I missing something?

                  I also still have my WC available

                  1. Freddiebell
                    • 2 Years
                    3 months, 5 days ago

                    If man city beat Swansea the weekend in the cup man city will probably have a dgw in gw 32 also against Cardiff & Fulham

                    1. hawkeyes
                      • 4 Years
                      3 months, 5 days ago

                      Oopppsss,

                      Okay I didn't know that and unfortunately can't cancel my FH.......might need to take a hit in GW32 or use my WC

              3. Tsparkes10
                  3 months, 5 days ago

                  Ake over Digne for sure

                • DDGs Snipped Ponytail
                    3 months, 5 days ago

                    Lanzini? I'd go Almiron.

                  • Laurenzo
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 5 days ago

                    Other than Digne, consider comparing Lanzini vs one of Barnes, Higuain or Arni up top. Having the same debate myself. Rest looks great.

                  A) Mane + azpi/Luiz + Rice + wilson

                  B) Mane + Clyne + Diop + Vardy

                        Just that I would like westham cover against lowest scoring team in the league. Only 8 away goals this season.

                    FH or not guys? ML leader 47 points ahead has played his one. Have 7 BGW players and 1FT..

                    FAB (Hamer)
                    ROBBO, TAA, DIGNE (Bennett, awb).
                    Pogba, Son, SALAH, ANDERSON (Hojberg).
                    RONDON, Aguero, Jimenez

                    1. Tsparkes10
                        3 months, 5 days ago

                        Defo not. Save FH for 32 and take 2 or 3 hits to field 10/11. Pogba, Son, Jimenez, Aguero to Haz, Fraser, Vardy, Wilson imo.

                        Complete waste of FH. It's not an attractive set of games and you're better off taking hit or 2 than FH to cover 3 spots

                        Rashford >> Wilson worth a -8 to field a full 11, or is that overkill?

                            If FH 32 you getting Wilson vs Newcastle and Burney at home for -4. Do it

                            Rash with play in 31 and 33
                            Wilson will have to home games he will score more points than 4 points

                                31 and 33:

                                A) VVD Ake
                                B) VVD Maddison
                                C) Clyne Mane (-4)

                                    I currently have 3 utd and 2 city in my team. By 32 i could have 3 city.

                                    Is it worth me using my FH in 32?

                                    Could TC a city player.

                                              Kun, Pogba, Shaw to Wilson, Haz, Luiz imo. Then FH in 32 (get rid of triple pool and bring in triple City, triple United and triple Chelsea

                                        Salah’s mask has finally fully slipped to reveal the joke donkey player that he really is

                                            Almost scored a nice goal but great tackle stopped him. Also got a lovely assist :).

                                              Could have teed up Mane yet again but selfishly held on and fluffed it. No confidence. Awful decision making. Donkey.

                                                Underlying stats - and all that 😀
                                                To me there are two types of players in fpl -

                                                1) the player who needs lots of shots to score - but has lots of touches in the box - has wild shots when he is in front of goal - that player is Salah

                                                2) A player who needs few chances rarely touches the ball but when he does it is a goal/assist - that player is Vardy.

                                                I know which I prefer.

                                              I wouldn't call him a donkey, but I think he is a one trick pony.
                                              Very dependant on his pace, not very accurate with his shots, has a tendenacy to run into traffic.

                                              In saying that though, He is still on pens and could do well against Fuham because they are so poor

                                              The chances he has missed over his last 6 or 7 games, he would have finished no problem last season.

                                                Considered the change myself but holding onto my same Triple pool and no Mane. Would hurt so much if either defender hauled

                                                    I did in the last two gameweeks.
                                                    Hopefully he won't sting me again like during last Christmas with a massive score.
                                                    I think there is a 'cult of salah' that has developed in a lot of the fpl community and they are afraid to look elsewhere.
                                                    To me that is a great chance to take advantage of that and try to rise up the rankings.

                                                  Looking at player price rise/fall websites strong evidence that fpl managers selling Salah and buying Mané in big numbers

                                                    Don't have salah - but that is a mad move unless they really require the cash for other players.

                                                  Do in light of CL result. Would you do Pogba > Mane for a -4?

                                                  Got 0.4 value tied up in Pogba. Using FH32.

                                                      Think I was really waiting to make sure mane didn’t get injured but it was on the cards. Playing 10 fir GW31 now.

                                                          No I was making sure he didn’t get injured lad

                                                      Salah to Mane extremely tempting. ML Rival has Mane and no Salah. He also has no Freehit and only 7 for GW 31.

                                                      FH32 and WC34, already have Salah and Robbo
                                                      A) Son >> Hazard
                                                      B) Son >> Mane

                                                      Hazard carries Chelsea, no other coverage, BPS magnet, definitely won't be rested/recovering from midweek
                                                      vs
                                                      Mane in form, LIV better team, Fulham allergic to defending

                                                      Thoughts?

                                                            Surely you can get Haz in also? What's team and FT available

                                                          Is anyone worried of Klopp rotating players for the fulham game to give them a rest after the European exploits?
                                                          If I was Klopp I would rest players.

                                                            They wanna win the league so cant afford to.

I have up on my ML Rival these next 3 weeks as he has no FH so will have to chop and change or will not be able to capitalise on dgw32. Only problem is if he capts Mane and I don't then that could lessen my upper hand if makes sense?

                                                                                              1. Irbox ⚽

                                                                                                1. Nailed Jesus

Mane has more attempts in the box and many more big chances, despite having less touches in the box. All evidence pointing to Mane being the goal scorer and Salah the provider, goals=5pts, assist=3pts. Mane scored in 6 of his last 8 PL matches, and after watching him tonight you think his form is going to regress?

Ripping up your team with -8s and -12s to fit in Mane over LIV defender is also crazy imo.
