Live end-of-season Scoutcast gets underway soon

Our final Scoutcast of the season will be broadcast live this evening.

Barring any technical difficulties, we’ll be live on our YouTube channel from 18:00 BST.

The Scoutcast can also be viewed in the embedded video below.

David, Neale and Az are joined by FPL General for a kneejerk dissection of their own performances in Gameweek 38 and the season as a whole.

There’ll also be a salute to the winner of our two FPL leagues, Adam Levy, who finished top of the world by some considerable distance.

The Scoutcasters will be discussing their own personal highlights and many lowlights of the 2018/19 campaign.

General, Az, Neale and David will then reveal what lessons they have learned for next season and how they will approach the next three months of downtime.

There’ll be one final review of the clean sheet and differential punts from last week’s Scoutcast and the season overall.

    Some verbal exchanges ensued after the game with Pogba and the Utd supporters:

    Also jeers and calling for Ole's sack

    Utd are in shambles going into the season break

      Quick. Somebody play the Rio video.

      We’ve stuck by Ole too long now tbf - time to give Poch a chance

        Looooool

        good luck w that one buddy

      3. Licky

        The circus around Manchester United should make things interesting over the Summer.

      4. nobwak

        Who's "we"?

    3. Dakes.
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      How horribly hanging onto Pogba for those final 2GWs went, jesus. Was really just bare hope against all odds he could do something reminiscient of when OGS first took charge.

      Will be glad to see the back of him.

    4. Licky
      • 6 Years

      A full rebuild is required, things won't get much better next season.

      Tell Me How Good Does It Feel

  2. alastair

    Ville Ronka finishing 46-47k

    1. Game&Watch
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Would have jacked off, best name ever on a FPL champ

  3. Dakes.

    1 month, 6 days ago

    Shame I've been pretty burnt by owning Auba at the wrong time (very start and then middle of the season, managing to avoid essentially all of his hauls).

    Really love him as a player. If more consistent and more nailed in whatever system Emery uses next year, may go for him again.

  4. DA Minnion
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Well that's that. 15 k odd. Not a bad season but could have been better. Until the next time.

    1. drughi
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      15k is great

  5. The Rumour Mill

    "beat the general" league. Did anyone not beat him?!

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 9 Years

      Do they now have the right to charge general for advice?

  6. True Deadzoner
    • 7 Years

    Live OR 6985, feel quite disappointed after the brilliant start of season...

    1. Yank Revolution
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Thats about where Im going to finish...and near the top of the FFS Dead Zone league too...

    My best season so far made it to 32k! - What a joy:)

    Thanks for all the help.

    Now it's time to have a break. πŸ˜€

      Well done pal.

  8. MartialMatas
    • 4 Years

    Best season for me. Looks like I'll have an OR of 467

    1. NorwichCityLad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Do you use stats or not well done by the way

      1. MartialMatas
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Cheers. Tbh I didn't look up stats too much after the first 10 gameweeks. Listened to a few podcasts and read what people thought on here mostly

        1. NorwichCityLad
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Thanks for answering well done

    2. Dakes.
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Fantastic job. I finished pretty weakly but still manage (looks like) top 5k so can't complain too much.

      1. MartialMatas
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Yeah last 8 weeks or so were relatively bad for me. I think I was in the top 60 at one point.
        Good work on top 5k

  9. LǝgleSs e|even

    Any update on who's gonna take the golden boot this year?

    1. alastair
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Someone with three feet

    2. Mysterion
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Auba, Mane, Salah

    3. Dakes.
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      All 3 of Salah Mane Auba share it I thought....

      1. twoplustwo
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        How insane is that and still not winning the league

      2. nobwak
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        That's correct. IMO it should be Auba though because he did it in less minutes on the pitch, by far.

            And you Neale! Both yourself and David have worked tirelessly this season, producing a mountain of excellent content.

            Lot of change happened last summer, so to provide so well over this season should be applauded!

        3. Ragabolly
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Thank you so much, it has been a remarkable season for me getting all the tools to work, my head is spinning now so time for a breaaak. Congrats on your awesome finish!!

        4. Bielsa's Binoculars
          • 4 Years

          Yep, genuine legend

  12. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    How did Robbo end up with more points than TAA?

    1. 420king
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      800 minutes more.

    2. True Deadzoner
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      TAA has higher points per game

    3. Dakes.
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Played way more minutes.

      Will have both next season regardless of price.

    4. The 5% Team
      1 month, 6 days ago

      haven't you been watching this season?

    5. Mysterion
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Doesn't get fatigued, less injury prone

    6. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 6 days ago

      His fitness is incredible and Moreno is his only competitor

  13. Bielsa's Binoculars
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Wild end to my ML. Me and my rival finish on the same points and the same transfers over the season

    A genuine tie!

    1. twoplustwo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Nice. On to Weds πŸ™‚

    2. nobwak
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Decided on ID, is it not?

      1. Bielsa's Binoculars
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        What do you mean?

        1. nobwak
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          If it's not decided on points, or transfers made, I THINK it's decided on who has the lowest team ID (i.e. who signed up to the game sooner)... but I could be wrong.

          1. Bielsa's Binoculars
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Seriously? Can anyone back this up?

        2. Lord Tachanka
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Yeah, decided by your FPL ID, first to set up wins

  14. TheDragon
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Finished: 1800 OR

    Would normally be delighted but was top 1k for large parts of the season and top 500 after GW36. Then Robbo & Shaw vs TAA & Laporte happened.

    It’s been emotional

    1. twoplustwo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Nice, good effort.

    2. Limited & Mediocre Mana…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Unlucky, still a great score

    3. Flapjack βœ…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Be proud you did good.

  15. twoplustwo
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    About 8k finishing OR, winning MLS against some good players. Dropping Salah in Feb was the turning point for me. I also didn’t play the chips during DGWs apart from TC on Kun a few weeks back, and was glad to avoid the carnage: the best teams have pretty see squads now.

    Can’t wait for the reopening! Slim pickings on the promoted teams... but would have a token Derby player if we some how manage to turn Leeds over after getting pumped.

    1. twoplustwo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Deep squads....

    5. Brosstan

      Best addition to the FPL community by far this year. So many poor products/blogs/podcasts that are just trying to make a quick advertisement bucks.

      LiveFPL is a fantastic work of programming and extremely useful.

    10. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Spoils the game imo. I don’t want to know that a player I didn’t captain has 125% EO, I want to enjoy his goal. I like waiting in suspense for the update on rank but unless you stay away from all FPL forums you can’t avoid it πŸ™

  17. AccountAnt80
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    I've ended up on exactly the same points as the previous leader of our mini league. Am I right in thinking fewest transfers over the season wins (me)?

    1. Ragabolly
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Yes! congratulations

      1. Bielsa's Binoculars
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I’m in the same position but me and my rival are both joined on transfers too!

    2. Brosstan
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Depends on rules for the league. I imagine most people would not accept to lose a mini league on transfers unless it has been clearly stated at the start of the season. Mini league tie breaker rules dont have to follow the OR tie breaker rules.

  18. Brosstan
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    What price do Robbo and TAA have to be to make it a real decision wether to have them or not? Im seeing many believe between 6.5 to 7.0. For me I really think they should be 7.5 and it makes sense too considering Alonso was 7.5 with a worse season behind him. Anything less will be easy pickings at the start of next season.

    1. Gringo Kid
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Robbo 7.5, TAA 6.5 due to rotation risk

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        1 month, 6 days ago

        lol rotation risk

      2. Brosstan
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Hes not a rotation risk at all.

    2. True Deadzoner
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      both 7.5

    3. Mysterion
      • 1 Year

      8.0/7.5
      7.5/7.0

    4. Runaway
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Robbo: 8.0
      TAA: 7.5

      Could be 0.5 lower for both

        Not on the grand scheme of things πŸ™‚ So annoying though as was there since GW29

      Nope. Because it’s a 5 digit rank not 4 digit rank unfortunately.

    Thinking if the golden boot is a tie, they should give it to Auba as he's played fewer minutes. Agree?

      100% agree, but that's not the rule.

      Agree because I put in a bet on Auba and now I only got third of the money paid out.

    Finished 7K and won my ML by 6 points , been my 5th consecutive top 10K finish. I am still a bit disappointed though as I was hoping a top 1K finish after a strong start.

    1. Yank Revolution
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      5 in a row in Top 10K is a heck of an achievement...I bet there's a mere few hundred or so players who can make that claim.

        4 in top 7k. Blew my 5th attempt.

          Ouch...Still, very good nonetheless

        I have always been happy with 10K but after hitting 2K in GW5, I was really hoping another 1K after 6 seasons but yes you are right I guess πŸ™‚

    Lost ML by 1pt (due to Newcastle 4th goal & Joe Bryan YC) was 120pts behind & turned it round in 8GW’s, lost an 17pt lead today in a Winners Takes All, gutted to say the least ... but bring on next season!
