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.

This episode of the Scoutcast can be accessed on our YouTube channel or embedded in the article below.

Once again, we apologise that we are still unable to publish it in a podcast form and will endeavour to rectify this for the 2019/20 season.

      Is Pogba likely to start this week?

        Good shout.

      As a Valery owner I'm very concerned about playing him:

      - Gave away bad goal, Ralphie was fuming on it
      - JWP will come back, will it be a RWB?
      - General rotation has been mentioned
      - Has come on for under 15 mins a few times before

      Last thing I want is a 1 pointer...

      1. TRASH BOAT
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        I'll be playing TAA and Laporte - then its him, Digne or Doherty. Not like I don't have other options and my nearest ML rival has both the latter two.

        1. HammersFan

          Play digne at least he will play 90.

          Spurs form is terrible and no son or Kane plus whatever happens in the champions league. Everton should ease that game on current form

          1. TRASH BOAT
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            May well do...

      2. Would Ed Woodward
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Hmm, I might play Bednarek over him.

          1. TRASH BOAT
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            The annoying thing is I got him a few weeks back with this game in mind and now I'm not sure on it...

            1. Would Ed Woodward
                1 month, 10 days ago

                I'm currently starting Valery because I don't think Hassenhuttl is the type to drop a youngster because of a mistake, he kept faith with him when he looked shaky when he first came in but it's the last game of the season so anything could happen.

                1. TRASH BOAT
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Risk/Reward. If that cameo was not a worry it would be a no-brainer to start him.

            Big decisions this week. Currently 4400 rank and really want a top 10k finish. Aguero is really the only player who can realistically jeopardize this as a non owner. I have 2 free transfers and can bring Aguero in. Trouble is I don't think he is gonna score big. Anybody else in a similar position?

            1. Bubz
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              He will be the highest captained player in top 10k, so if he hauls you will drop like a stone. Depends how brave you are in your prediction of him not scoring well

              1. gooberman
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Yeah this is the concern. If I get him I probably won't captain him but it will at least limit the damage. I really don't like making decisions based on fear though. I just don't invisage a haul. He rarely hauls away from home and I do agree with the guys on the scoutcast in that I can see them just doing enough to win, maybe 1 or 2 nil.

              2. Cruz88
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Won't Salah or Mane be the highest captained? Brighton away not the best game for Aguero surely

            2. FPL Pillars
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              I would bring him in to counter the captaincy if for free for sure. I am thinking of doing the same with Salah if he’s confirmed fit to play.

            3. danishdynamite
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              I'd have thought there's sufficient a gap to 10k that you could afford to just have Kun but not (C) him and go with someone else for (C)

              I have him, and am trying to stay in the top 100, but I keep sniffing at Wilson and thinking he could be my man this weekend.

            4. Tube!!
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Kun needs 3 for Golden Boot chance.

          6. Bubz
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            If I go ahead with my planned Jota ----> Redmond xfer, this will be me for this week...

            Ryan/Boruc
            TAA, Laporte, Doherty
            Salah, Hazard, Redmond, Babel, Deulofeu
            Aguero, Rashford

            .., Jiminez, Rice, Duffy..... 1M ITB

            Reckon anything would be worth a -4? Namely the goalkeeper, as lets face it, Ryan will probably be lucky to get a point and Boruc probably wont play

            1. puhd
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Salah might not be fit

              1. Bubz
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                He'll be fine imo

                1. puhd
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Hope so

                Klopp said in his pre Barca presser that Salah is available for Wolves.

            2. gooberman
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Salah will definitely play guys. He has already had 4 days rest and has another 4 days. He looked fine last night bouncing around amongst the celebrations.

            3. Little Red Lacazette
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Weak points are keeper and Doherty. But not worth a -4.

              1. Bubz
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                I could potentially play Rice away to Watford but not much better

                1. Little Red Lacazette
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Wolves could be hammered and Doherty gets a 0 or -1. I'm benching him myself.

            4. FPL Pillars
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Looks GTG, capping Salah?

              1. Bubz
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Undecided but is on him currently

            How’s this FH Team? Feel free to rip it apart:

            Foster
            TAA Digne Laporte (Bednarek, Valery)
            Sterling Mane Fraser Hazard (Neves)
            Wilson Aguero Rondon

            Thanks lads

            1. Amey
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Bad keeper on FH imo. Might be Rotated.
                Neves waste of £.
                Re strikers I'd go for Mitrovic instead of Wilson.

                  Club tweeted he had a scan today. I think it was Suarez' heel which clipped his shin so maybe in with a shout of playing on Sunday.

                Who's going to be the last week Lukaku?
                2013 last game of the season and brom draw 5-5 with utd, Lukaku hatty....all unexpected (I benched Lukaku 🙁 )

                So who is the potential diamond in the rough for the last game?

                1. Berbinho's Forehead
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Arnie

                  1. donlobatto
                    • 1 Year
                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    Why such confidence in him? No decent stats to back this up recently, especially for Away matches

                    For me atm Babel feels my man and allows me to have Raul waiting on the bench just in case (although my real hope is he is able to do absolutely nothing vs us on Sunday!)

                    1. Berbinho's Forehead
                      • 8 Years

                      Just plucked out any random strikers name tbf 😀

                      Agreed on Babel.

                        You planning any final GW punts?

                          1 month, 10 days ago

                          Yeah, think I'm gonna take a hit and just go all out. Looking at the likes of Mitrovic, RLC if fit etc.

                    Yup. Good shout: him or Mitro or the ganbles to have (if gambling) IMHO

                2. Amey
                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    Mitrovic/Vardy imo

                  • jia you jia you
                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    One of these three maybe: Arnie/Zaha/Mitro

                3. jia you jia you
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  If Robbo is confirmed out I'm kind of set on this atm?

                  Robertson + Son + DCL to Laporte + Siggy + Arnie/Zaha (-4)

                  With no City defence the hit kind of makes sense as I cant see BHA scoring, thoughts?

                  1. Amey
                      1 month, 10 days ago

                      Like it buddy 🙂
                      I'd put Mitrovic as an option too in Arnie/zaha place

                        • 2 Years
                        1 month, 10 days ago

                        Cheers, I've looked at him too, it will be one of the three 🙂

                          1 month, 10 days ago

                          thinking Arnie though as Watford will likely have one eye on the cup final

                          1. Amey
                              1 month, 10 days ago

                              Yes
                              Valid point. He's so hot n cold that i prefer Mitrovic over him. Home match against old club + last PL match for god knows how many years with the pathetic team they are.
                              I smell something nice 😉

                                He may be hot and cold but Mitro is freezing atm despite the stats...one goal since GW24!

                        I have JWP, Yoshida and Valery.
                        Planning on playing 1 SOU def and JWP at the moment.

                        People more in the know re Southampton - will JWP play on Sunday? Is Yoshida likely to be fit?

                        This will become more relevant also if Robbo is still a doubt at the deadline as I'll probably play him and if he doesn't play then either Doherty or a SOU def will come on from the bench

                        Cheers

                          There was absolutely nothing wrong with their video. That's like calling any pundit a swear word for celebrating last night. It's football, you're meant to enjoy moments and that's what they did last week.

                            If you watch Lineker from last night he was praising Liverpool, Liverpool fans have this notion that everyone has an agenda against them. Gary is a Leicester fan who celebrated watching a fantastic Messi goal live at the Nou Camp ... Why would he be upset Pool went through, I remember him saying at one point that would be his preference - A potential all English CL final.

                              Find it strange that any fan would get offended by a pundit celebrating a goal.

                                If they are celebrating specially because it was against liverpool sure i would be annoyed .... Not all fans are perfect like you berbs.

                                  They would have celebrated in exactly the same way if it was against Real Madrid, Man City, Tottenham etc etc etc

                                    Do you always Hug your friends and celebrate when messi scores?

                                      If I was with a friend at the Nou Camp, had the view that they had and saw Messi score that Free-kick live then abso-f***ing-lutely i'd be hugging my mate and celebrating. You know for a fact if you were in that position and it was Messi scoring that FK against anyone other than L'pool you'd be celebrating.

                                Liverpool have always had the mentality of 'It's us against them', I was actually surprised by how praising the ex-non-Pool players on punditry were, same for Phil Neville on Radio 2 this morning. Nothing but positive words.

                          They were celebrating the brilliance of the goal not because it was against Liverpool

                          Was it for celebrating Messi's goal? If so then it's incredibly small time getting annoyed by that. They're pundits doing their job.

                        For those chasing what are your differential players / tactics? I’m considering a maverick move or two, my main one being backing my Wolves assets away to Liverpool.

                        Selling Jota and benching Jiminez, which I am looking like doing, could end up backfiring horribly. But if Liverpool can keep Barca out surely they can keep Wolves out!

                          It’s tough decisions this week that’s for sure.
                          Could make or break many a FPL season

                          That's my current plan atm also and def making me nervous!

                          To be honest if Wolves are going to put anything past us it will be one/ both of Jota and Jimi so it's hard to get it totally right but we have shown last night that even with some of our top players not playing, we can keep out the most attacking formidable teams so I am feeling more confident today than I was this time yesterday

                        Last nights come back:

                        “Better” than Istanbul or United v B.Munich 99 final?

                        Note: Obviously I know it wasn’t the final last night and it means nothing if Liverpool don’t win the CL but still curious what you think.

                          1 month, 10 days ago

                          Istanbul is still the greatest.

                          That AC Milan team was arguably the best in the world and were better than Liverpool in every position, Gerrard aside. Only 45 mins to do it too. And a trophy was on the line.

                          1. OldBenKenobi

                            I think you're right. The fact it all happened in the final and with only 45 mins to turn it around was just believable.

                            Also as good as Barca are they aren’t the good as they used to be and that Milan team was top notch at the time.

                              Yeah, this Barcelona team are really not what they once were.

                              A trophy being on the line ultimately seals it for me.

                              And even though we were without Salah and Firmino, last nights team was closer to Barcelona's than 05's team to Milan's.

                                Yeah the gulf between the teams was greater in 05 imo.

                                Yeah that's fair...Liv were a far worse side than they are today and that AC Milan side was an excellent team!

                                  That AC Milan was one of the greatest sides I've ever seen.

                          Not better than either, could still end with them not winning a trophy.

                          I think 2005 was better, that Milan team was stacked, Liverpool were not.

                          Because of Messi I would say yes perhaps better than Istanbul. But that S&S late drama will never be beaten 🙂

                            I mean the fact that they had to keep a Messi teaem scoreless over 90mins of need to score 5 was some ask and they did it!

                              I think stopping Barca from scoring was unthinkable. Truly great result last night

                          Just too hard to compare.
                          The players only had HT break in Istanbul to think about it
                          This year, they had a whole week to reflect which probably relieved any pressure. To do it whilst in the midst of a title race without Mo/Firmino makes it even more unbelievable
                          Either way, greatest night at Anfield

                            He has been good to me.

                                I need to do something different. Up against a rival in a h2h final who has 2 FT's and a TC.

                                why? city are grinding out wins under pressure, when the pressure is on like this he's not nearly as effective.

                              0 goals and 1 assist in his last 3 iirc. Less G+A than last season too..

                              Chelsea ban appeal rejected by FIFA, will now go to CAS.

                              Still allowed to sign under 16s though... I'm sure FIFA are aware of the irony of that

                                  Will depend on how they're priced I think, but you have to worry about the strength of the squad once you take Hazard out of it.

                                  A cheap Reece James would be tempting, if he plays. Big if.

                                    I think Pulisic will be over priced for sure, I'd like to see Hudson-Odoi become a proper option if Willian were to leave.

                                  I'd be very interested now what hazard decides to do with this ban.

                                    Yeah, I think he'd stay though, seems like he does genuinely care for the club.

                                            He’s the hear and soul of Chelsea attack, who excels year after year. This season alone would’ve been a complete disaster without this guys.

                                            I’m sure if Chelsea wants to stay a top 4 team, they’re ready to keep him at any cost.

                                                I think he genuinely cares, I also think he leaves either way, it's time to go.

                                                          Plus Real are desperate for him right now, they won't wanna wait another year.

                                                            After a poor season, they're eager to prove that they're turning it around. Issue is Chelsea want 100 mil, and won't budge whereas Real want far less.

                                                            Looks likely he will go, but who knows in this mad world! Definitely loves the club though and will try to go on good terms with the fans

                                                    I still think it'll get reduced to one window and delayed so they only have a ban for Jan.

                                                      Far from certain. 3 teams have gone to CAS on appeal regarding their bans

                                                      Real Madrid - Reduced ban

                                                      Still think there's a good chance it will be delayed, question is how quickly can Chelsea get it through CAS - obviously they'll push it as hard as possible.

                                                    Anyone know when Son's red card appeal will be decided ?

                                                      he doesn't stand a chance of winning that. it has to be a clear and obvious error by the ref. its isnt.

                                                    Anyone have any insight into whether Boruc or that random lad will play?

                                                        Wait for the pressers to get no information on that 😀

                                                          Don't see why he'd drop Travers after he played so well.
