The Scoutcast is back with Joe, Az and Luke joined by original host Granville to mark a landmark moment in the show’s history.
At the 296 episode mark the Scoutcast has finally delivered more shows than long running British TV sitcom Last of the Summer Wine.
This achievement had long been a goal of Granville and fellow original host and Fantasy Football Scout creator Mark Sutherns over the years.
Here Granville looks back at the show’s history, including its memorable early hat-tricks and features.
He also finds time to chat about the forthcoming campaign by revealing his ‘old school’ team. Meanwhile, Az is daring to be different once again with his ‘poetic’ ode to Sheffield United’s players. Luke is looking to be more ‘dullard’ this season by shackling his daredevil instincts. As for Joe, he thinks he’s created his usual boring and safe collection of players, only to be told by his co-hosts that he’s actually turned maverick.
Goalkeeper tactics also get an airing as does the huge array of potential mid priced stars in midfield and attack, who could be a gold mine of points this season. Well, in theory anyway.
Elsewhere, Luke looks at the best mid-term differential by joining Az in his love affair with promoted sides and Joe takes in the best teams in terms of clean sheets over August and early September.
Last of the Summer Wine has now been beaten but will our crew be dogged by some late summer whining at the end of Gameweek 1?
