Scoutcast Episode 291 – Panic

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.

        As long as he promises on his daughter's life I can't see how they will deny him.

      Opta says OG Shaw.

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        So Salah assist at least?

        1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 11 days ago

          Think they'll overturn that and give it to salah. Ownership will win again.

    A) Kun
    B) Jimmy

    1) Sonny
    2) Erik Sensei

    no wc so need them in the rest of this season

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      What you gonna do with all that spare change if you go for Jimmy?

        ha has dgw and next week I can buy a City player

    2. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      B1 for me

  6. Differentiator
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    Kane ankle roll didn't look THAT bad versus previous ones. Back in 3 wks?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      After taking a look at his scans I would say around 4 and a half weeks.

    2. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Doubt it

      Plus Kane is pants when he comes back after an injury, takes him a long while to get going again.

    3. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Longer I'd suspect but no doubt he'll rush back as per usual and then get another problem with it soon.

    How is this WC team? 0.0 ITB

    Lloris - Ryan
    Robertson - Doherty - Duffy - Kolasinac - Valery
    Mane - Eriksen - Son - Sterling - Jota
    Aguero - Deeney - Jimenez

    Is Kolasinac still a decent option? Who to get instead for 5.0?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      You will be relying on attacking returns from Kola because Arsenal don't do clean sheets away and they play 4 out of 6 away.

      1. firstade
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah, I know. Just can't find any decent replacement with DGW. Don't want to buy anymore Brighton and already have three Wolves. Holebas perhaps if fit?

    2. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      It's exactly the same as everyone else's

      [snooze]

      1. firstade
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        Ok, didn't realize that.

  8. Jarvish
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    Cultured Shaw defending as usual

  9. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    Shaw YC.

    Off till the City game now.

  10. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    Best city mid from those?

    A) KDB
    B) B Silva
    C) D Silva

    Will be Salah GW 36.

    1. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      A

  11. CFC1990
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    Not seeing slot of people with Lukaku in their teams.

    Does anyone fancy him?

    1. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      He was really popular pre DGW34, maybe that’s why he’s not in many teams now.

    2. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Based on this game, hell no

  12. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    Has Lukaku even touched the ball?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Lukaku is playing?

      1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        I saw what looked like a 20 stone statue on the pitch, but I can't confirm.

  13. HamezMace
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 11 days ago

    Anyone have an all DGW35 defence only....with no Arsenal?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Yes. Hope that helps.

      1. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        It would help more if you’d be kind enough to share it with me

        1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 11 days ago

          Triple Brighton, Man City, Spurs, Wolves, Saints.

          1. HamezMace
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 11 days ago

            Ah, I just meant the 5 defenders.
            I also have Triple Brighton, Ry,Duffnk, Gunn and Valery. Had Bennett but no Kane frees up so many funds.

            Who do you have Trippier, and Laporte?

            1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              4 months, 11 days ago

              Trippier and Ederson at the moment, but I'll be tinkering and looking at Laporte and Lloris.

              1. HamezMace
                • 5 Years
                4 months, 11 days ago

                I’m happy with Ryan/Gunn rotation, will only start Gunn in 37/38, and on BB35.
                Can’t justify having Ederson and benching him in 34.

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 11 days ago

      Can see the worth of it over keeping Robbo.

      1. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 11 days ago

        Can or can’t?

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 11 days ago

          Can't.

          Wouldn't mind Epic's triple Brighton in 34 but only want max 1 for 35.

          1. HamezMace
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 11 days ago

            Ive also gone 3x Brighton.
            I trust them to get as much from BOU/CAR as I do Robertson to get from CHE/car.
            Anything against wol, tot is a bonus.

              The Brighton hype machine clearly working then. I’d rather have three Cardiff 34 than those pesky seagulls myself.
