Sign up now for the next Fantasy Football Scout Charity Cup

As the curtain sets on another exciting season of domestic league action, we are spoiled here in England by the prospect of guaranteed success in both the Europa League and the Champions League and possibly even international glory in the Nations League.

As if that wasn’t enough (and, for many of us, it won’t be), Fantasy Football Scout is delighted to confirm that the third instalment of its Charity Cup will take place on Sunday 28th July 2019, provisionally during the afternoon at Market Road Football Pitches in Islington, London.

The first two competitions proved extremely popular back in February and November 2018, with around 80 players across nine different teams competing to lift the illustrious FFS Charity Cup and, more importantly, raising around £2,000 for the Melanoma Research Foundation and for Campaign Against Living Miserably.

We’ll be raising money for the Stroke Association this year and donations can be made by clicking here.

For those who aren’t aware, this is real-life football with players of all ages, fitness and abilities very welcome. As with previous tournaments, we’ll be organising players into squads, so you don’t need to round up a team yourself, although feel free to invite guest players to boost the numbers.

The precise format (including squad sizes) will depend on numbers but you can rest assured that everyone will get decent game-time before we head to a local pub to talk everyone through our best goals (or, in my case, penalty misses).

All you need to do is email peter.kouwenberg76@gmail.com as soon as possible to confirm your interest and provide your contact details, at which point you’ll be added to the relevant WhatsApp group, unless you warn me in your email that you would prefer to be kept informed by email or text only instead (outside the group).

      Thanks, mate,.

      I've added all applicants to the WhatsApp group or replied by email (where preferred) so hopefully you've heard from me already.

        None whatsoever. Don't belong here anymore.

    Will you buy alisson at 6.0 instead of robbo/taa?

      Ederson might sneak in 0.5 cheaper - cant believe he didn’t get any pen saves this year

      1. Jacky boy
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Both 6.0 imo

        Aye, remember he started conceding pens just give himself something to do!

      Assist & goal potential from TAA is too appealling to ignore for me.

        Anyway Fabianski will be my goalie, he gets better and better with age.

    3. Amey
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Nope
      Cheap GK with Save points
      Lloris can be a good option though. Don't wish to waste pool/city spot on a GK.

    4. The Danger Zone!

      Think I'll go 2x 4.5 GK until team value builds later in season.
      If rotation doesn't become an issue I'm thinking 2 Liverpool defenders.

    Gun to your head, how much do you think these midfielders will cost next year in FPL?

    KDB

    Redmond

      What difference does the gun make?

      1. Amey
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Nothing.
        Trigger makes huge difference though 😛

            Dont think I will, more of a 90's hip hop head myself but cant ignore good track when I hear it and this one is a real gem from MH.

    3. Amey
      4 months, 4 days ago

      KDB 9.5m
      Redmond 6m
      RLC 6m
      Siggy 8.5m

    4. Lord Tachanka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      9.5

      6.5

      6.0

      8.5

  6. Jacky boy
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    My gk price prediction:
    Alisson 6
    Ederson 6
    Pickford 5.5
    Lloris 5.5
    Kepa 5.5
    Ddg 5.5
    Leno 5
    Schmeichel 4.5
    Heaton 4.5
    Foster 4.5
    Guaita 4.5
    Fabianksi 4.5
    Dubravka 4.5
    Patricio 4.5
    Ryan 4.5

    Doubt pickford, heaton and schmeichel.
    Schmeichel has failed 3 seasons in a row and should be dropped in price imo but leicester seemed a good team at the end of the season

    1. Amey
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Fabianski + Henderson looks good pair to start with (if fixtures are good enough obviously)

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Fabianski will be 5.0. Otherwise an obvious set and forget pick again.

    I might come along to this one.
    I suck at playing football though, how good is the standard normally? xD

      Hi, Az, glad I spotted this as it would be great to have you along.

      The standard is definitely mixed (both in terms of fitness and ability). I'd say that in both tournaments there has been a reasonable number of Saturday/ Sunday league amateur level players together with a fair few who don't regularly play football (apart from kicking around with mates). There's also quite a range of ages - at 42 I fell into the older bracket but was far from the oldest.

      The other thing is that we try to balance the sides so that every team has a mix of stronger and weaker players. That was quite a challenge in the first tournament (as I'd only seen a handful of the players in action) but actually went pretty well. We can also tweak things on the day and it's only meant as a bit of fun and a fundraiser.

      So in short, send me your contact details and get involved, mate!
