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.

    Sterling + Son + Rashford + (pogba / kamara) to

    A: hazard + Wilson + Mane - 4
    B: Mane + Wilson + Fraser - 4
    C: hazard + mane + fraser + Wilson/vardy - 8
    D: Mane + Vardy + Wilson + Fraser -8

    AB, 10 players, CD, 11 players. FH32

      Contemplating something similar. My gut instinct says A.

  2. PascalCygan
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Sterling & Son to Hazard & Mane for -4?

    That's what I've been planning to do, giving me 10 players for BGW31... Anything worth -8?

    Currently 1FT, 0.7ITB
    Boruc
    TAA / Diop / Tarkowski (AWB* / Bennett*)
    Salah / Fanderson / Son / Sterling / Pogba*
    King / Rondon (Jimenez*)

    Thanks!

    Best 3 Pool on FH? I'm thinking VVD, TAA and Mane

    1. Wild Rover
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I have those three so probably not

  4. Numb
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Was Mane alright at the end there?

    1. grumpyman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Was pointing to his foot to the medical team as he left the pitch.

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      What are you insinuating

      1. Numb
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Just asking. See Grumpyman post above

    3. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Maybe just his own version of the Kun limp?

    4. Better Call Salah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      His shoe was a bit dirty

  5. Wild Rover
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Well done Liverpool, Man U, Man C and Spuds. Anyone still think this isn’t the best league in football?

    1. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Not many think that. We don't have the best teams - but it is the best league.

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        City and Pool are as good as anyone.

        1. Ron_Swanson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          I think Juve, Real M and Barca would be 3 of the top 4 in the Prem almost every year if they played in it.

          1. Berbinho's Forehead
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Can't disagree. Just feel City and Pool fall in that category too. That being said, they need to win the CL to be consistently comparable to RM for example.

            1. Ron_Swanson
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              fair comment

        2. Dr Van Nostrand
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Agreed but Barca Real and Atletico are that anyone

    2. Game Over
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Someone from Scotland probably.

    3. Dr Van Nostrand
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Yes Spain perpetually tops Uefa's rankings and has a far better record in Europe. PL needs a few more seasons like this

    4. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Best would be associated with winning for many. No winner since 2012.

      Most competitive and best spread of quality, yes. Best? Getting back to 00’s levels.

      1. Ron_Swanson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Agreed

      2. Wild Rover
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Best league. None of the others could produce more than two potential winners, not more than one now

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          I only see two potential English winners.

        2. Dr Van Nostrand
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Spain is now a 3 horse race with Simeone. Atletico are a powerhouse

    5. Flaming Flamingo
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I think the top teams here are better than the top teams in other leagues. I also think the worst teams are worse than those in La Liga though.

      1. Dr Van Nostrand
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Nah Atletico are better than England's 3-6

        1. Wild Rover
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Except they are out

          1. Dr Van Nostrand
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Under Simeone they almost always make it farther than any English team

        2. Flaming Flamingo
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          I should clarify that I was referring the top 6 when saying top teams. In any case, I think City are better than Barca and Liverpool much better than Madrid so the point still stands. Also, the gap between Atletico and the teams below are huge. Similar to that between the top 6 and the rest here.

          1. Dr Van Nostrand
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Then why do English teams have such a terrible record against Spanish teams?

            1. Flaming Flamingo
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Because I'm talking about who the best teams are right now? It's obvious La Liga have dominated Europe for the past decade, but it's also pretty apparent that the English teams have caught them up now.

              1. Dr Van Nostrand
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 9 days ago

                I disagree it's a bit of a fluke year. ManU were lucky. Spurs will surely bottle it as per usual. Barca could easily win it all again.

                I reckon normal operations will resume next year

    6. pjomara
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Spanish teams have won the last 5 Cl finals and 4 of the last 5 Europa league finals.

      England won the other Europa league final

  6. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Salah owners with double Liverpool defence, which defender are you selling to free a spot for Mane?

    1. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      TAA

      1. Nomar
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Although there’s an argument to keep both and dump Salah. TAA probably likely to get 4 points for CS and an assist, plus BAPs.

        Mo probably gets 1 CS point, an assist and zero BAPs.

    2. Wild Rover
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Salah if they have any sense

    3. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Salah

    4. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Urgh, I'll probably switch Salah. Anyone who doesn't own Mane is going to get their rank absolutely slaughtered this GW.

      1. Irbox ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Wow.. you’d be completely wrong there. Who had the better stats against Bayern?

    5. FPL_DON
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      i'd keep salah imo

  7. EL tridente
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Van Dijk or Robbo on WC?

    1. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      VVD

    2. FPL_DON
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      robbo

  8. SheBangsTheDrums
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Sterling & Jiminez to Hazard & Wilson for a hit a no brainier?

    Leaves me with:

    Boruc
    TAA Robbo Azpi Chilwell
    Salah Hazard Fraser
    Vardy Rondon Wilson

    1. Trondero
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Yes

    2. Trondero
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Nice team

  9. Berbinho's Forehead
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    4 English teams go through 😎

  10. HD7
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Salah owners what are we doing with Mane hot form?
    I have Robbo and VVD so I dont another place for Mane...
    Only choice is Salah to Mane -4?

    Do we just trust Salah to get back as the main man or go with the new main player?

    1. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Get rid of the one firing blanks.

    2. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      One more week. Also Mane might have got a niggle at the end there so keep an eye on that

    3. liverpool01
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Have given him enough trust lol, how many weeks had he blanked now for?

        1. Nomar
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          4 goals and 1 assist in last 10 matches.

          Mané gets that in 2 GWs.

          Well worth that £3.6m more!

      • Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Not owning Mane this GW is going to be a season killer IMO.

        1. Nomar
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Absolutely this.

      • Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Keeping Salah, TAA, Robbo

        If Mané hattricks, so be it, I’ll take it on the chin

        No way am I selling Salah, he will categorically, 100%, cast-iron guaranteed go on a mental scoring run as soon a season I sell

        1. HD7
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          This is what is stopping me.But last 3-4 GWs its been very difficult. The proactive who made the switxh def have the upper hand currently. Lets hope for Salah backlash!

      • FPL_DON
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        id swap a defender out

        1. HD7
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Im on -4...
          getting VVD or Robbo plus Salah out for additional -8... naH

      • EMBOLOFAN

    4. Joey Barton and Friends

      2 months, 9 days ago

      If I activate my FH now, I can change my team as much as I want until deadline and it won't effect my TV?

      1. liverpool01
          2 months, 9 days ago

          U could change your team as much as you want on free hit until deadline day, you've been a member for 7 years shouldn't you know? Lol

          1. Joey Barton and Friends
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            FH is pretty new in fairness

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Of course it'll effect your TV, but you'll get your original side back next gameweek.

          Anyone else see Mane laboring and in pain with his foot or ankle at games end? Just caught a quick glimpse.

            Been mentioned a few times. Won’t be surprised if a flag is thrown on him tonight.

            Yellow flag incoming

        • Niho992
            2 months, 9 days ago

            VVD is IMO best player in the world after Messi.

            1. Brosstan
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              According to this place, defenders, defensive midfielders and goalkeepers dont count as players and cant be in the running for best player in the world.

              1. Brosstan
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 9 days ago

                People will claim Neymar is better than VVD lmao

                1. Niho992
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    Lol. Neymar is not even in top 25 for this and last year.

                    1. Brosstan
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 9 days ago

                      Exactly what I said the other day and people said I was trolling.

                      1. Niho992
                          2 months, 9 days ago

                          i dont know why. Neymar is overhyped player and not even better than Robinho.

                    Yep. Plus a striker can make 10 errors in a game but scores once and he's played well. Defenders have no such luxury.

                  No.

                  But nice to own if you already do have him.

                Best combo for gw31/33:

                A: Schindler + Hazard + Vardy/Higuain
                B: Mane + Hazard + Wilson (-4)
                C: Fraser + Hazard + Vardy (-4)

                    Fulham don't have anyone near Ribery's level. TAA will start he'll be needed going forward

                        Most likely just a couple midfielders. He can rest over most of the int break

                      This is true.

                      Maybe he’s so ill it would have been too dangerous to fly?

                Removing Robbo and Hazard to make space for Mane for -8 a no brainer, right? Might even do it for a -12

                  Only if you're also selling Salah and VVD

                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  Wouldn't spend -12 on selling two players, personally

                  1. Brosstan
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    Mane (C) is at least worth as much as 5 players.

                    1. Deulofale

                      • 3 Years
                      2 months, 9 days ago

                      Exactly. May as well spend -20.

                  • 2 Years

                  Can always reverse it for another -12.

                        He is not first choice now though, is he? Worth getting rid for Wilson who is sure to start?

                          Arnie starts this week IMO, from non owner. I would hope anyway vs hud scores score off bench.

                    Imagine if there was a once a season chip called the “shining star” or something that allowed you to pick one player and all you got that week was that player’s points but x10 .....
                    The odds on people playing it on Mané this week....

                    Come to think of it isn’t that seriously quite a fun idea for a chip?!

                      I would play it on Sergio Rico

                      Yeah could play it in a DGW, on say Sane?
                      Fun fun fun

                        Lol ouch. Yeh I was thinking of the ranges of scores from playing the shining star on a no-show to get 0pts for the whole GW to playing it on a hattie monster for a 200pt haul or even playing it on Pogba when he gets a red card and withdrawn after 10 mins and get a cool -20

                          2 months, 9 days ago

                          Maybe as an additional chip (although I hate chips) - b/c a lot of people probably wouldn't use it at all
                          Risk/reward is huge

                            So we’ll make it compulsory. If you haven’t used it your season score is zeroed lol

                              Almost worth it to witness the wailing and rage quitting
                              Someone gets 500pts, another -20

                    Didn’t see the game tonight but not owning Mané is becoming a real concern.

                    How essential is he for gw31? Worth an 8 point hit and having to sell one of TAA or Robertson to enable? Or stick with Salah and the 2 defs?

                    A) Get Mané
                    B) Do without

                      I have TAA, VVD and Salah, and I've just realised that the GW33 fixture is Southampton..... Mané's former club.

                      I think I've got to get him. Probably for TAA.

                      Not worth changing now for a hit.

                        How do you know that?

                          I don’t but I would feel so much worse taking another hit and then see Mané blank with the other 3 getting the points! That’s what seems to always happen

                            It almost appears set-up to happen that way!

                            Will be interesting to see how many captain Mané over Salah.

                            You say ‘another’ hit but I haven’t taken one yet. In fact I haven’t taken one for 8 gameweeks. Surely now’s the time...?

                              Yes hits fine but looking at your team you only have 7 starters and might be better getting some attacking players in for Son Pogba Aguero such as Wilson Fraser Vardy Hazard rather than taking out bgw players for another

                                I have ten starters - I put in Wilson and Fraser a few days back. Not sure how you counted 7 rather than 8. Do you know something I don’t?

                      Can someone explain to me why writing things in alternate upper and lower case letters is funny? Thanks.
