Scoutcast Episode 294 – Endgame

“We’re in the Endgame now.”

With just one round of fixtures left of the season the Scoutcast team attempt to wrap up all of the outstanding talking points ahead of Gameweek 38.

Andy, David and Az began by overcoming the frustrating nature of Gameweek 37 in order to get truly excited about the final day of the campaign.

Not surprisingly, the key player to be discussed was Son Heung-min, whose red card against Bournemouth ruled him out of Gameweek 38.

We looked at all the potential replacements and examined all the implications of moving him on for a cheaper midfield options.

That included our thoughts on Manchester United and Southampton assets after poor performances in Gameweek 37.

Next up was a debate on what Wolves can bring to Liverpool in Gameweek 38, especially with so many managers either double or tripled-up on them.

In the aftermath of the Reds’ incredible Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona, we also looked at what we thought Jurgen Klopp’s men are capable of in their Premier League finale.

Also, an injury to Andrew Robertson on Tuesday night prompted discussion about what to do with the left-back in Gameweek 38.

Finally, Andy, David and Az tackled some last day of the season dilemmas from managers wondering what tactics to employ to ensure the highest possible finish.

        Re-posting as bottomed on last page.

        8 points behind the leader in my ML with a big prize on the line! My team and his are below.

        Thoughts on the best use of the FT? 0.3 ITB. Son > Pogba perhaps? Thanks?

        Me:

        Lloris - Foster
        TAA - Laporte - Doherty - Valery - Duffy
        Son - Mane - Sterling - Jota - Redmond
        Aguero - Rashford - Jimenez

        Him:

        Allison - Ryan
        Robertson - Azpi - Kolasinac - AWB - Duffy
        Salah - Son - Hazard - Gundogan - Westwood
        Vardy - Wilson - Jimenez

          depends on who is son replacement is, who you will captain
          prob aguero or mane, hes gonna cap salah, could come down to cap choice

          1. simong1
              1 month, 12 days ago

              True, something I won't know rally. He could well go Son > Pogba too. Thinking I'll captain Kun or Sterling

        2. Shackalackaboomboom
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Is Salah worth a -4 hit to replace son? Leading ml by only 4 points.
          A.yes
          B.no way

          1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Yeah possibly. Would you captain?

            1. Shackalackaboomboom
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Think I would.

          Sorry post fail above

          Looking ahead to Sunday, depending on Salah and Robbo injury news, how does this look after a planned 1FT?

          £0.6itb
          Lloris
          Robbo*, Laporte, Valery
          Salah (C), Sterling, Mili, JWP, Babel
          Aguero, Wilson
          (Foster) (Jimi, Doherty, Yoshida)

          Alternative plan is to get Rondon for Jimi and play 3-4-3 with Jota first on the bench (instead of bringing in Babel).

          Thoughts always appreciated - cheers lads

          1. Amey
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Salah should play imo.
              I'm also in same boat with Robbo Injury & Yoshida+Doherty on the bench.
              Will most probably play & hope Robbo is fit. Yoshida 1st sub (so Valery+Yoshida for me.) Not keen on taking hit on Defender.

                1 month, 12 days ago

                Hey bro

                Yeah I think at the moment I am happy to make my move and leave Robbo - worst case scenario either Doherty or Yoshida come in for him anyway which could be a lot worse.

                1. Amey
                    1 month, 12 days ago

                    Yep
                    🙂

                    1. donlobatto
                      • 1 Year
                      1 month, 12 days ago

                      Just need to get to a decision on

                      Jimi > Rondon/ Mitro
                      or
                      Jota > Babel

                      Leaning towards Babel atm as NEW haven’t actually got a great record away vs London teams at all and Babel in tasty form

                      1. Amey
                          1 month, 12 days ago

                          Mitrovic for me

                          1. donlobatto
                            • 1 Year
                            1 month, 12 days ago

                            Still him vs Babel?

                            Babel’s stats are better (just compared them in the tool). High xGI and form better last 6 home matches. Also far more likely to get an assist and baps

                            So pretty sure I’ll be going him and having Jimi ready to come on from the bench.

                            But my mind may have changed by Sunday!

                1 month, 12 days ago

                Etheridge (Hamer)
                Shaw Ake TAA (Wan-Bissaka, Kelly)
                Mane Hazard Sterling Pogba Milijovic
                Vardy Wilson (Jimenez)

                1ft
                1.4mil ITB

                Etheridge to Allison
                Ake to Laporte
                Jimi to Arnie

                For -8

                I'm leading my ML by 10 points or so.

                Worth a -8 on the final week?

                1. Greek Flair
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 12 days ago

                  you cant give away a 10pt lead. I'd keep the points cushion personally and just make 1FT

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 12 days ago

                  Can you afford to leave out the Jimenez transfer?

                  First two look decent for -4

                3. Amey

                    Sterling, Salah, Mane, B Silva, Redmond, Hazard, Babel, Fraser, Pogba, Moura.

                    Pick one

                      Will hazard and will he score points (not great away from home) or even play. May go Babel instead, good shout

                        Yeah I have Haz from last week but don't fancy him.

                        Babel is fun and punty

                            hi hakim

                            shouldn't you be training.

                        • 5 Years
                        1 month, 12 days ago

                        Closed the gap on my ML rival again, 18 points behind now after being over 100 points behind 5/6 weeks ago;

                        Only differences are;

                        Me - Laporte, TAA, Hazard
                        Rival - Cathcart, Robertson, Pogba

                        Both only got 1 FT, he's got 0.7itb I've got nothing. I'll keep a close eye on his TV etc but he's known for blocking hence only having 3 different players! Should I rely on my differentials to close the gap or bring in someone silly and captain to go all out? I think I would be gutted if I did the latter and it turns out my differentials are enough.

                        1. Greek Flair
                          • 3 Years
                          1 month, 12 days ago

                          I wouldn’t be comfortable having 3 differentials to get 18pts. If he puts another of your players in that’s 2!

                          1. Essrick
                            • 5 Years
                            1 month, 12 days ago

                            Good point. I could do Hazard & Son > Salah & Redmond for -4 and captain Salah?

                            1. Greek Flair
                              • 3 Years
                              1 month, 12 days ago

                              I like those changes, you gotta go for it with one 1 week to go, no playing safe if chasing in 38.

                          1 month, 12 days ago

                          I'd look for one more diff and try to captain someone you think he won't.

                          1. Essrick
                            • 5 Years
                            1 month, 12 days ago

                            I'm thinking Redmond for my differential.

                            If Robertson isn't fit he'll do him to either TAA or Laporte to block. I prefer Salah to Hazard this week and I think he could be the best captain pick so should be worth the -4 and I'm pretty sure he won't even have Salah.

                                  Really tough. If he had any form I'd say jimenez but as it is I'd say pogba despite his lack of form

                                          Have you considered fraser? Could be goals in a game with nothing on the line and he's put up some good stats away of late.

                                                I'm not sure I trust soton at the moment. I like redmond but not for captaincy.

                                            Redmond or Pogba

                                            I have my doubts about Pogba though. Is he going to start? If he starts will he be up for it? Does he even care anymore?

                                                Pogba tenpting but Utd so bad.

                                            Is there any reason for klopp to not give us a definitive answer on robbo this week?

                                            Sitting on Son, robbo, masina and gray and that's already with playing triple wolves and just one free transfer.

                                                  Are we expecting Salah to play the full 90, or there abouts?!

                                                  Don’t have aguero so I think surely the next option would be Mo.

                                                  Paranoia in regards the head injury and a 4-0 victory against Barca without him playing worrying me about giving him the armband.

                                                  Maybe Berbinhos forehead is the one to speak up about this lol

                                                    I think he's fine, he wasn't allowed to play vs Barca because of concussion protocol.

                                                        Yes but they proved they didn’t need him, so will the bring him in against wolves even 8 days after concussion when they were on fire without him?!

                                                          I think the protocol is 7-10 days so it is tight. Klopp i doubt will give anything away to City. Salah will be desperate to play to keep Golden Boot among other things. Tough one...

                                                            I think he'll be fine, it seemed like he could have played but it was better not to risk it, and the CL final is like a month away so no reason to worry about resting players.

                                                      if he is passed fit, I guess he will play full game.

                                                      Aguero Vardy, and then possibly Wilson.

                                                        I'd say, Kun Vardy Mitrovic

                                                          Thanks.

                                                          I’m not sure on Vardy myself but he is on form

                                                              Chelsea play high line & i think it's going to be a great game. Have Hazard atm & will get Vardy most probably

                                                        Slipped just outside the top 20k this week with a 35 point debacle. Really want to creep up a bit and improve on last years 25k. Any thoughts on this? Luckily didn't waste a transfer on Gunn or Pogba in the end so I have two FT's...

                                                            gray to arnie?!

                                                            maybe wait JUST IN CASE son red card is taken away. Then i'd say maybe getting Bilva for eriksen instead.

                                                                    Going for the title and golden boot and probably the two best goal scorers in the PL over the past 2 seasons.

                                                                                  1. baps sniffer

                                                                            3. pingissimus

                                                                                How many goals has he scored this season? How many have come at home?

                                                                                The only good news is that that is where he gets assists - haven't checked but I assume all 3 were pens.

                                                                              • FantaCity

                                                                              • donlobatto

                                                                                CRY home form is poor and BOU away form is conversely strong. Zaha himself has only returned twice at home this season. 1G vs WHU and 2As vs HUD. It is not a straightforward game at all imo.

                                                                                Prefer the slightly cheaper and puntier picks of Rondon, Mitro, Arnie personally if you are planning to drop Jimi

                                                                              - Zaha, Calvert-Lewin, Arnautovic and Wilson
                                                                              - Frazer, Milivojovic

                                                                              In general, do I go for one of the safer picks to consolidate my rank, or do I go all out to improve it with a punty pick. If so, which transfer do you favour?

                                                                              This season has been much less predictable than last season.

                                                                              This is proved by my performance in the talksport predictor game (correct scoring prediction for each PL game). I played this by selecting the shortest odds for each result/ correct score. You get points for correct result but wrong score.

                                                                              Last year: About 200th out of about 80,000 people.
                                                                              This year so far: 5425 out of 55,363 people.

                                                                              This will include people that gave up. You have to do it each week, and unlike in FPL, you don't have a zombie team, you have to make predictions to score anything. So I'm not even in the top 10% really.

                                                                              To have so many more games not going the way of the odds is quite strange. Why do you think that has happened?
