Just minutes before the start of the Scoutcast’s live stream on Tuesday evening, the news broke that Harry Kane looks to have sustained a serious ankle injury.
The carefully laid Wildcard plans of Az, Joe, Andy and David were swiftly jettisoned as they spend much of this episode hatching new strategies to cope with the season run-in without the Spurs man.
Amid the chaos, our quartet somehow manages to stick largely to the script as they answer the key community questions on Double Gameweek assets as well as bargain buys and premium options for the rest of the campaign.
Their regular look at the latest whipping boys, who can’t stop conceding, has a seaside special theme this time around, as the crew also consider those teams who are already packing their bags for summer.
Gameweek 33’s rare strong showing from all four of the crew, as well as the community’s smoothest and roughest moves, also get the once over.
However, Joe’s attempt to start a Dean Martin-style sing-a-long in praise of Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucouré falls flat. At least his cat makes a rare appearance to cheer him up and can be seen on the video version at 1:19:58 on this extra-long, panic-fuelled episode.
