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
      8 days, 14 hours ago

      A if you have Sterling

    2. Lord Tachanka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 14 hours ago

      I’m on A

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

      1. The 5% Team
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 13 hours 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
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 13 hours 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
        8 days, 10 hours ago

        Siggy +1.5 if it enables Sterling instead.

    6. Lucky Z

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

      Anything better?

      1. liverpool01
          8 days, 13 hours ago

          Triple Liverpool defence , no mane or Salah?

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

        • Brian Boitano
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          8 days, 13 hours ago

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

      2. Kizza_10
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 14 hours 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
          8 days, 14 hours ago

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

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

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

        1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
          • 3 Years
          8 days, 13 hours 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.

          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
            8 days, 12 hours 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
                8 days, 10 hours 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
                  8 days, 10 hours 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

      4. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 2 Years
        8 days, 13 hours 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

        quick poll:

        A. Kepa - 4.5 def

        or

        B. WanBissaka - 4.5 gk

        3. Brooksy86

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

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • 2 Years
            8 days, 13 hours 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
              • 2 Years
              8 days, 13 hours 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

        2. Miguel Sanchez
          • 2 Years

            • 2 Years

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

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • 2 Years
              8 days, 13 hours ago

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

              1. LangerznMash
                • 2 Years
                8 days, 12 hours ago

                Preseason will probably unearth a 4.0 that is useable.

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

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

                    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.

          You could do:

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

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

            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.

            I currently have:

            Fab / Button
            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

          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
            • 2 Years
            8 days, 13 hours ago

            CAB

          2. Brooksy86

            8 days, 13 hours 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.

                Yep, 1,2,3.

                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

          Salah Zaha Perez Siggy/Bilva

            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.
                Managed Sunderland which will piss off the fans. Perfect Ashley appointment,

                  Bit harsh. Can't see who they are going to get in at the moment who is better.

                    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.

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

              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

              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
          • 2 Years
          8 days, 13 hours 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
            • 4 Years
            8 days, 13 hours ago

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

          2. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            8 days, 12 hours 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
              8 days, 12 hours ago

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

              1. pingissimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                8 days, 12 hours 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
                  • 2 Years
                  8 days, 12 hours 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
                    • 4 Years
                    8 days, 10 hours 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.

                      Was supposed to be a reply to Snevitz

                2. Snevitz

                  • 10 Years
                  8 days, 12 hours 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
                    8 days, 12 hours 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
                    • 2 Years
                    8 days, 11 hours 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
            • 6 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

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

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              8 days, 12 hours ago

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

        23. LangerznMash
          • 2 Years
          8 days, 13 hours 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

          1. Miguel Sanchez

              Don’t like the look of Dendoncker in the 11

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

              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?

            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.

              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

              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?
