Sign up for latest FFScout Charity Cup on July 28

The third instalment of the Fantasy Football Scout Charity Cup is now less than three weeks away and already around 40 players have signed up to play. But we want more of you!

Following the success of the first two competitions in February and November 2018, which featured around 80 players and raised over £2,000 for the Melanoma Research Foundation and for Campaign Against Living Miserably, this time we’ll be raising money for the Stroke Association.

Most of you will know that Joe, a much-loved member of FFS and the wider Fantasy Football community, recently suffered a bleed on his brain. Thankfully, after a fairly hellish month, he is gradually returning to normal.

The Charity Cup will be held in the morning of Sunday 28 July 2019 at Whittington Park Astro Pitch in London linked heremeeting at 9:15 am to finalise teams etc. 

The full address is Holloway Road, Islington, London N19 4RS. The closest Tube station is Archway on the Northern Line (8min walk) and the closest London Overground station is Upper Holloway (2min walk).

As always, the precise format (including squad sizes) will depend on numbers but everyone will get decent game-time in a 7 or 8 aside format.

This is real-life football (not an FPL online cup!) 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.

If you would like to take part please email peter.kouwenberg76@gmail.com with your contact details and you will be added to the WhatsApp group for further information (unless you state that you would rather receive information by separate email only).

Even if you are not able to play, please donate to the Stroke Association at the Just Giving page which is linked here.

    Good morning guys

    Siggy +1.5 or KDB?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A if you have Sterling

    2. Lord Tachanka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I’m on A

      I see BSilva matching KDBs output this year for 1.5 less......

      1. The 5% Team
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I was thinking the opposite, KdB's direct style of play will impact Bilva's fantasy output...and not in a good way.

        1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I don’t think pep will allow KDB to do that, Bilva was arguably their best player last year.

          Different role for KDB in the team nowadays in comparison to when pep arrives or when Pellegrini was around IMO.

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      One of my set ups has Sterling KdB and Bilva. Overkill perhaps and a guarantee that Kun will assist himself to 100 goals in the season but tempting.

      If the 1.5 gets you Vardy I’d go for it. The only thing holding me back on KdB is fitness doubts and whether Pep will go easy on him early.

    5. The Sociologist
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Siggy +1.5 if it enables Sterling instead.

    6. Lucky Z
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Ryan [Button]
      Robertson TAA VVD Digne Laporte
      Sterling Zaha Siggy [Jorginho Hayden]
      Kane King [Greenwood]

      Anything better?

      1. liverpool01
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Triple Liverpool defence , no mane or Salah?

        I would remove one Liverpool defender and get either Salah or Mane

      2. Brian Boitano
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        This is basically my team except I have Maddison instead of Zaha.

    7. Kizza_10
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Other than the weak bench which I’m willing to gamble on in the early game weeks, hows she looking?

      Any advice is welcome.

      Ryan
      Azpi VVD Walker Robertson Coleman
      Tielemans Salah Sterling KDB
      King

      Subs: Button, Dendoncker, Wickham, Greenwood

      1. The 5% Team
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Not bad. Just hope that your 1 striker is 100% nailed and no injuries...the one drawback of playing this formation

    8. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Apparently WestHam made an offer for a season-long loan for Higuain. So there's that...

      1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I didn't expect to read that this morning, an odd one.
        I'm in two minds as a fan, he's not the type of signing we want profile wise, Haller would be immense if that has any truth. But Higuain's record is obviously not something to ignore especially for West Ham's level. I just don't think the PL suits him that well.

      2. el polako
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I really hope this isnt true.
        Higuain is fat, past his prime and for a longer while his form is dipping.
        Thats just lazy scouting from Hammers, there is talent out there ( Sebastien Haller ?!) and Krzysztof Piatek who replaced Higuain at Milan is the best example.

        1. The 5% Team
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 13 days ago

          rumours are that Haller rejected the offer, clubs had agreed.

            They should try harder not just give up on the first hurdle.

            1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              In an ideal situation these deals need to be kept on the sly. Not a good look to keep being told no.

              1. The 5% Team
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 13 days ago

                in fairness, they are rumours...probably true, but no official club statements or anything
                trying to keep these things away from publicity seems very difficult nowadays

    9. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A or B please?
      A) VVD & 4.5 def
      B) Robbo & Kelly (Dendoncker if Kelly no show)

      *Already own TAA

      And which one?
      1) Tielemans
      2) Perez

      Thanks

      1. the vanisher

        A1 but monitor Leicester preseason.

      4. Clay Davis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        A1 to start. A2 if Perez gels in preseason / early gws

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Thanks all, A1 it is!

    10. the vanisher
      • 2 Years

      quick poll:

      A. Kepa - 4.5 def

      or

      B. WanBissaka - 4.5 gk

      1. Snevitz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Not too keen on either but B with Burnley keeper.

      2. DantheManinaPan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I wouldn't want to go near either Kepa or AWB

      Salah Sterling* Siggy Tielemans (Dendocker)
      Vardy King (Nkeitah)

        B

      3. Brooksy86
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        A... Maybe Tielemans for Brooks for their first two fixtures?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Could do but had a bit of a rough time with Brooks back end of last season and don't like bookmarking a transfer so early on. Might well have to move A.Smith on come GW3

          1. Brooksy86
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            That's fair enough. That's the only real downside (4.5m D)... But then again it might be the only transfer you need to make every 2 weeks

    14. NUFCAndrew
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Anyone who’s managed to fit Sterling, Salah & Vardy willing to share their squads? Struggling to do so at the moment

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        I have above but means having to field a 4.5 def every week

        1. NUFCAndrew
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Good squad nonetheless. Happy with the Leicester double up?

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Yeah absolutely!

        2. LangerznMash
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Nothing wrong with having to use a budget defender, just create a good rotation strategy.

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Yeah but its not a rotation as have Kelly who is unlikely to play.

            1. LangerznMash
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              Preseason will probably unearth a 4.0 that is useable.

      3. LangerznMash
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Ryan (Button)
        TAA, Digne Janmaat (Rico, Tomkins)
        Salah, Martial, Moura, Yarmolenko (Guendouzi)

        I have done a couple of times...

        But (atm) I don't think it's worth the sacrifice to the defence

              Pope is same price and every bit as good.

                both very good indeed, but confident in Burnley? 5th worst defense last season...a world of difference with the year before that

                1. Andy_Social

                  No Europa to burden them this year. I'm not a cheap goalie sort but I do think Pope will get more points than bandwagon Ryan.

                  1. The 5% Team

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        You could do:

        Pope etc
        Walker Laporte TAA VvD Coleman
        Salah Sterling Perez (Dendo, Stephens)
        Vardy King (Greenwood)

      9. CROCosta
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 13 days ago

        here is my 4-4-2 draft featuring these 3 players:
        Pope
        TAA-VVD-Digne-Coleman
        Salah-Sterling-Zaha-FAnderson
        Vardy-DCL
        4.0-Kelly-Dendoncker-4.5

        You could also do DCL,FAnderson -> King, Brooks if you want BOU attacking coverage

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Both very good squads. I'd lose DCL and take the King option myself.

      10. Little fekirs

        Ryan
        TAA VVD Taylor
        Salah Sterling Moura Maddinson JWP
        Vardy Deul

        Button Diop Wickham Rico

      11. The Sociologist
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I've gone for...

          Ryan / Button
          VVD / TAA / Digne / Zinchenko / Kelly
          Salah / Sterling / Siggy / Noble / Dendoncker
          Vardy / King / Greenwood

          Could also go the route of having 2x rotating 4.5 defenders to achieve this, which I'll look into more once we get more of an idea in preseason as to who's a likely starter.

        • This
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I currently have:

          Rob / TAA / Digne / Cathcart / Kelly
          Salah / Sterling / Siggy / Dendoncker / Kanté
          King / Vardy / Greenwood

          Does that help? Almost balanced I feel; some doubts in def/midfield

      12. pjanns
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        A. Tielemans + TAA

        or

        B. VVD + Zaha

        I already have Vardy upfront.

        How do you rank the Liverpool defensive options:

        A) VVD
        B) Robertson
        C) TAA

        CBA for me I think

        1. LangerznMash
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          CAB

        2. Brooksy86
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          CBA

        3. Clay Davis
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          1/ TAA - higher points per game because of assist potential, on corners and has s piece of direct free kicks. But comes with some rotation risk due to age, squad options, and injuries.

          2/ VVD - goal threat. Guaranteed starter.

          3/ Robbo - guaranteed starter, probably safer option than TAA due to lack of competition.

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            So that's in order?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

              Yep, 1,2,3.

            2. Clay Davis
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              That’s my preference. Should have mentioned VVD picks Robbo for me because of his price.

              But depends if you favourite risk and reward (TAA) over safety (Robbo)

          If you have a good bench then TAA is the best due to being on some set-pieces (especially if Milner is out) but he is most prone to rest/rotation out of the 3. Robbo is good and attacking and VVD has a price advantage over the two but least attacking so if you have a solid bench:
          TAA>Rob>VVD

          if not, then Rob>VVD>TAA

        Right guys more than happy with this team, only dilemma is Siggy or Bilva, don’t like having none city attack but can see Siggy doing well

        Lloris

        Vvd Robbo Digne Laporte

        Salah Zaha Perez Siggy/Bilva

        Kane King

          Don't think it is a good idea bookmarking a transfer before the season has started. Siggy has great fixtures so just start with him if you think he is a good option.

              The third part of the trilogy: Allardyce, Pardew, Bruce. Love to walk out on a club, loves to relegate a team from the PL.

                  No one worth their salt is willing to work with Ashley. I did read yesterday Queque Flores (ex Watford) is unemployed and available. I'm not saying Bruce is a no-go; I'm simply saying Toon are done until Ashley goes. With or without Bruce I'm tipping them for relegation.

            2. Andy'81

              I agree but people are pretty fed up at the moment so he'll be getting s*** no matter what unfortunately.

          2. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Pragmatically Bruce could work short term.

            He loves Newcastle so might deal better with Ashley rubbish
            He’s going to be able to use Rafa assets and not introduce new style - that’d be a killer imo
            He could get a team up and running quite quickly - loss of preseason time less damaging

            Wouldn’t like him long term mind

        my team is slowly morphing into something i like, some of them might not be ready gw 1 though and no City which is not ideal

        Pope
        VVD, Azpi, Mailand Niles
        Salah, Zaha, Richarlison, Yarmolenko
        Auba, Vardy Jimmy

        Button, Hayden, fredericks, kelly

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 4 Years

          I like the Richarlison pick - flying strangely under the radar.

          1. lugs

            3 months, 13 days ago

            yeah i think with all of the Siggy love you don't see much Rich, but i personally think that penno he scored the other day might have made a man out of him and given him a huge confidence boost for the season ahead

          Not bad at all and captaincy covered

      22. LangerznMash
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Any one else think Kane will equal or surpass Sterling's points this season? My Guess is Kane 220 and Sterling 210.

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Depends if Sterling continues to progress. Kane will do well if he avoids injury.

        2. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 13 days ago

          If he stays fit he’ll go very close.

          There was nothing at all in it last season when he went lame in GW22. People are getting blinded imo by talk of poor value premium strikers. Auba was also exactly level at that point. It was the combination of Kane injury and introduction of Arsenal rotation in favour of Laca that tilted the balance.

          Bizarrely for a City asset Sterling is only value for one reason this season - nailed. Otherwise he looks poor value

          1. Snevitz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Sterling looks poor value? He had the best PPG in FPL last season.

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              3 months, 13 days ago

              He’s gone up in price.

              Read my post and look at the numbers in the first half of the season plus. Sterling only becomes value over the season - very few will be daft enough not to transfer him out at some point for a better performing premium.

              At 11 no question. At 12 a very marginal call imo over Kane/Auba.

              1. LangerznMash
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 13 days ago

                Completely agree mate. The price rises given to the premium mids (Salah, Sterling and Mane) will probably make them less value for money than the premium forwards this season.

                1. Brosstan
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 13 days ago

                  Who cares about PPG? Absolute Points is more important for Premiums and especially captaincy options because a benched or managed minutes captain is a disaster.

                  1. Brosstan
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 13 days ago

                    Was supposed to be a reply to Snevitz

              2. Snevitz
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                3 months, 13 days ago

                Once again he has better PPG than the more expensive Salah.

                I can't see how you can suggest that he is poor value when last season he scored 1.2 points a game more than the strikers you mentioned.

                I'm not suggesting that he has to be kept all season but he has better opening fixtures than those two strikers as well.

                1. pingissimus
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  3 months, 13 days ago

                  Up in value

                  He misses matches anyway so ppg deeply misleading

                  Kane Auba exactly matched him when both fit and not rotated. Kane injury and Auba rotation are what you’re gambling on

                2. LangerznMash
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 13 days ago

                  Because he has gone up in price and Kane has gone down in price... this shifts the value (points per million).

        3. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Nah. They'll both do well but there's still a gulf between the two teams.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Look at the numbers from last season before the injury from which he never really recovered imo.

      23. LangerznMash
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Guess the final points total for the £10m+ players.

        12.5 - Salah = 240
        12.0 - Aguero = 160
        12.0 - Sterling = 210
        11.5 - Mane = 190
        11.0 - Kane = 220
        11.0 - Auba = 200

        Ryan
        Robertson TAA Coleman
        Salah Sterling Tielemens Dendonker
        Kane King Jota

        Button Hayden Kelly Simpson

          pretty good except having to play Dendonker

        2. Lingard’s Shin Guards

            Weak keeper, Donkers, no bench. Don't like it.

          • yakirh
            • 3 Years

            Rather have Vardy & 6.5 midfielder or defender instead of playing Dendonker

            maybe drop TAA/Robbo to VVD then upgrade Donker to a 5.0mil player?

                could get Kante or Jorginho in for 5.0?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Re-post from old news
          I have a back 6 of
          Lloris
          Alonso Laporte Digne TAA Robbo
          It does cost me a big hitter but value in the backs is far superior.
          Alonso is a wait and see and I am thinking I could get Rico at 4 mil and upgrade Wilson to Kane.
          It looks a no brainer, especially looking at balance but I do believe outside of Salah who will be C every week, this is the 1st season to go 5 at the back.
          The keeper is another story. Last 3 years 145,144, 143. Massive annual improvements. But this return is fine for 5.5

          Anyone else thinking the same.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Ah someone else looking at Alonso. The other tiger from early last season I’m seriously considering is Holebas - perhaps in combination to balance funds.

            I don’t see either as a long term play but if you’re not blinded by season value and they look nailed - potential gold

          2. Snevitz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            I think I'm just going to go for either Heaton or Pope if one is clear first choice. Double Liverpool and Digne at the back with Coleman on the bench week one.
            Coleman will rotate with Deulofeu and King so that I always have one decent bench player.

              Reasonable thinking. I just hate choosing the 12th man.

                Entirely by fixture difficulty and remember you only have a one in three chance of getting it right.

            We’re actually very close now I see Lloris there and read your post fully. Agree with your reasoning but Fab just edges it - his numbers really stack up too and he buys me 0.5

              Yep. Only thing is I CANNOT bring myself to pick him week 1 vs Citeh.

                Depends whether you normally WC early. If you tend to keep it until Christmas then the 1st fixture doesn't matter.

                Guaranteed 3 pointer on save points!!! Any keeper I get is a long term call - up to week 9/10 potentially so fixture runs are less compelling for me

                  I went Palace hammers Wolves last year. It was Ok

            value wise I can't argue this. But I feel you won't have flexibility to jump on in-form players/bandwagons, which for me is one of the fun thing about FPL.

            This team is more suited as a set and forget zombieteam maybe

              Yep. Why I mentioned one downgrade and get a better balance

                it is very tempting to go 5 atb I must admit, with so many good options 🙂

          anyone else doing a rotating keeper team?

          if so which ones?

          looking at Ryan & Pope.

            I've tried it in loads of previous seasons. It's frustrating as cheap keepers only get about 8 cleansheets and they can be really difficult to predict.
            Last year I just had Fabianski, he scored really well with some unexpected hauls that I know I would have benched him for if I had another option.
            This year I will just have Burnley's keeper or Fabianski again.

              cheers for the reply mate.

              who's Burnleys No,1 keeper going to be? Pope or Heaton?

          Kantés points per match average for last season was better than Mata Noble, Knockaert, Sanchez..

          ...KDB!

          That's not points per match per million, that's points scored on average per game played. I know KDB was injured for much of the season and maybe wasn't in form or at peak fitness in the games he did play, and he got a couple of 1-2 pointers in the games he started and came off injured... but still - is he really worth 9.5m?
