New start time for Scoutcast in 2019/20

The Scoutcast is back for Gameweek 2 and will broadcast today at a new earlier time.

For the rest of the 2019/20 season, the show will run from 20:00 to 21:00 UK time on Tuesday evenings (where possible) on our official YouTube channel.

This is to ensure fewer late nights both for our Scoutcasters and our viewers too!

The Scoutcast made history ahead of Gameweek 1 as we overtook Last of the Summer Wine for total episodes.

The famous sitcom ran for a total of 295 episodes between 1973 and 2010.

Last week, we the Scoutcast’s episode count went to 296 and we were joined by one of the show’s long-time guest Granville.

After such a momentous episode, we felt like making history for a second week running.

Ahead of Gameweek 2, we are joined by founder of Fantasy Football Community Holly Shand, who will be the first female guest on the Scoutcast.

The maths teacher and mother of one has only been playing Fantasy Premier League a short time but already has an impressive record.

In five seasons playing the game, she has two top 10,000 finishes and has already started the 2019/20 with 94 points scored in Gameweek 1.

Holly will join regulars Joe, Luke and Az to discuss all the key talking points ahead of Gameweek 2.

That includes what to do with potential Harry Kane and Anthony Martial bandwagons as well as how to handle our transfers in the coming days.

As ever, you can watch live on our YouTube channel but after the broadcast is over, the Scoutcast will be available on the usual platforms.

    Thinking of wildcarding this week? Feel like it’s a proper mess, thoughts?

      Trossard is the only potential issue: easily sorted with 1FT. Everyone else is fine.

      You have Salah, Sterling and Kane, Robertson, VVD, Digne.. How is your team a mess?

      What transfers would you make?

    8. FPL Virgin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Go for it. Your team is shite.

        You are funny, let’s see your team.

    9. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 days, 13 hours ago

      Be patient, half of that team already delivered you fantasy points in GW1. I would hold onto most of that team for 3 or 4 weeks and they you can transfer out anyone in poor form.

    10. kopite65

      thats knee jerking ! nothing your transfers wont sort out

    Looking forward to the Scoutcast. Holly was fantastic on breakfast club.

    1. FPL Virgin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 13 hours ago

      Agreed. A female guest has been a long time coming. 296 episodes and a complete absence of diversity belongs in the Victorian era.

      1. badgerboy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 13 hours ago

        Not really. Couldn't care less what gender someone is so long as they know what they are talking about.

        1. conorbon
          • 6 Years
          8 days, 13 hours ago

          Exactly!

        2. Four Hit Wonder
          • 2 Years
          8 days, 13 hours ago

          Meritocracy is the real equality.

          1. LosBlancos
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            Agree, fplvirgin's statement is actually sexist

            1. Giggs-Tosun Particle
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              Sexist yes but also representative of the majority it's sad to say. Glad to see most people in this thread have their heads screwed on though. Meritocracy and competence all the way!

        3. hoganzo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          Genuinely good to see you're not narrow-minded, but don't you think it's odd that in 296 episodes, only men have "known what they are talking about"? Come on, mate.

          1. badgerboy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            It's their pod they can do what they want with it. Like I said I couldn't care less who's on it. If you think there is some sort of agenda there why pay a membership fee to them?

            1. hoganzo
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              8 days, 11 hours ago

              I don't think there's an "agenda". I reckon they just never bothered before. I think it's nice that fantasy football is open to everyone and a bit more female representation on one of the most successful sites can only help raise the profile and stop it from being considered "lads-only".

    2. PUMPKINHEAD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Who the hell is holly ?

  3. cigan
    • 1 Year
    8 days, 13 hours ago

    Play:

    A) Adams (LIV)
    B) Dendoncker (MUN)
    C) Cathcart (eve)
    D) do a transfer: Catchcart --> Montoya (or another 4.5/4.0 def maybe?) to play him this round, otherwise mostly for bench

    I'm currently on Adams but waiting to see more of Liv defence tomorrow. They looked shaky in GW1 but will be considering C or D if they improve

    1. conorbon
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 13 hours ago

      A and you have 2 FT for gamesweek 3

  4. Team Cruel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    I'll start watching the scoutcasts again if Mark ever returns. Not the same without him.

    1. PUMPKINHEAD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      You are obsessed. Just ask him out pal

  5. conorbon
    • 6 Years
    8 days, 13 hours ago

    I’m begrudgingly holding doing any transfers this week, if it all goes to pot plan to do the below for gamesweek 3.
    Zouma, Pulisic, B Silva to Maguire, McGinn and Son.

  6. Giggs Boson.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    You're going to miss a lot of Champion's League games recording the scoutcast then!

  7. mcgrejam

    Martial or Rashford?

    1. conorbon

      Martial

    2. mattyb09

      Rash

    3. Aubaaaaa

      Rash

    4. Eytexi

      Martial

    5. Littlest Hobo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Both.. but worth losing TAA to get them...?

  8. mattyb09
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    8 days, 13 hours ago

    Hearing/reading conflicting reports on Ross Barkley's performance on Sunday...

    Can someone tell me how he looked for the 57 minutes he was on the pitch?
    1 chance created 2 shots 1 SOG.

    1. conorbon
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 13 hours ago

      Didn’t really do much, wouldn’t go near any of our kids for a week or 2, need to see how they respond.

      1. mattyb09
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 13 hours ago

        Cheers. I have him in my 11 right now, deciding whether to give him another week or not.

        1. Rinseboy
          • 7 Years
          8 days, 13 hours ago

          defo stick this week

    2. Rinseboy
      • 7 Years
      8 days, 13 hours ago

      I was surprised he was subbed thought he looked pretty good

    3. Slouch87
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Confirmed my suspicion that Lampard has a crush on Mount. Barkley will be history when CHO and RLC are fit.

    4. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      he was good, had 2 good shots and pressed probably more than anyone so made sense to take him off

      1. Rinseboy
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        did it?!

    5. PUMPKINHEAD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Wouldn't suprise me if he was dropped for Pulisic tbh mount was their best player

      1. RichardNixon
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        strongly diagree. Emerson was our best player by some margin. Mount worked his socks off but was largely ineffective. I think the reason Lampard likes him so much is due to his relentless work ethic and pressing, along with Pedro. Both these guys didn't stop running at the defenders and goal keeper when Utd had the ball. So perhaps for that reason he started with Mount instead of Barkley in the middle but imo he should have taken Mount off and switched Barkley into the middle. Let's see what happens in the Euro Supercup but im staying clear of Chelsea players for now...... regrettably as there is good value these somewhere

    6. RichardNixon
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Lampard's first screw up as manager was playing Barkley out wide so that he could play both him and Mount together. Barkley was Chelsea's most impressive player by some distance in pre-season in the middle........ ie the same position that Mount played vs Man Utd. And then to put salt onto the wounds, it was Barkley that got dragged instead of the ineffective Mount.

      So nothing is clear in the Chelsea team. Willian is about to come back from injury as well to make things even more complicated.

    7. child of God
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      What game were people watching to say that mount brought more to the game than barkley ?

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        No idea. Mount was poor.

      2. Rinseboy
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        this. Barkley was no better or worse. I thought he looked more involved early on

      3. RichardNixon
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        There seems to be a universal hatred of Barkley for some reason, including by Chelsea fans. And there also seems to be some sort of bromance going on with Mount. It's mind boggling really

  9. Team Cruel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 days, 13 hours ago

    If you've got Martial and Greenwood, do you prioritise AWB or Rash?

    1. conorbon
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 13 hours ago

      AWB

    2. Slouch87
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 13 hours ago

      One playing Man U is enough . Hugely flattered by the horrific Chelsea defending and but for the woodwork would have conceded 2 or 3.

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        shots have to be on target in order to go in

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

          this is a dumb reply (to his point that united conceded good chances)

          1. Eat my goal!
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            are they good chances when they are off target?

            1. Gnu
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              8 days, 10 hours ago

              Of course they are.

            2. Coolbean
              8 days, 7 hours ago

              Ignorance is bliss. You do you mate 😉

              1. Currybean
                7 days, 17 hours ago

                Why

      2. Team Cruel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        4-0 might have been flattering but United will score far more goals than other teams in the same price range (EVE, LEI, WOL, BOU).

        And the back 4 played their first game together so you'd assume they'll only get better.

  10. Four Hit Wonder
    • 2 Years
    8 days, 13 hours ago

    Trying to quantify how many points is a wildcard worth.

    For how many points would you agree to use a wildcard?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 13 hours ago

      what

      1. Four Hit Wonder
        • 2 Years
        8 days, 13 hours ago

        E.g. if you would get 25 points more than if you didn't use the wc, would you use it?

        1. Podge
          • 8 Years
          8 days, 13 hours ago

          It’s not really a 1 week thing though

        2. Feanor
          • 10 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          20-25 would be decent. We've all had wildcards go negative at some point.

        3. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          thats not how it works, it affects every future gw. this applies more to fh

    2. Podge
      • 8 Years
      8 days, 13 hours ago

      16

    3. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Your 1st wildcard can define your season.

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      About 16 points

    5. Stacks of Mané
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      To be fair, I'd rather start a new account at 25 points at GW1. Also, points are kind of vague. Depends on how your team looks. If you're missing 2 out either Kane/Sterling/Salah and Allison without a decent second option than perhaps yes. Either way, good luck man! I'm sure it'll work out.

  11. Four Hit Wonder
    • 2 Years
    8 days, 13 hours ago

    I mean extra points, compared to not using the wc.

    1. Podge
      • 8 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      You’d need to be making at least 5 or 6 changes

  12. HollywoodXI
    • 5 Years
    8 days, 13 hours ago

    Do we think Kane will go up in price between now and the deadline? I’ve made my mind up that I’m doing Wilson and Moura to Kane and Dendonker with my 2 FT’s in time for GW3 but I have the exact money.

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      no chance

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        or should I say, pretty unlikely

        1. HollywoodXI
          • 5 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          That’s what I thought. I’ve checked the usual sites and transfers in for him are moving slowly.

    2. Jacky boy
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      No

  13. Feanor
    • 10 Years
    8 days, 12 hours ago

    Pardon my ignorance as an American resident, but does Mark still put out FPL content somewhere? It was great to hear Granville last time, but I would quite like to hear Mark's thoughts to start this new season.

    1. fr3d
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      I loved how Mark always went against the template and still made it work. I think we all miss his insight on the scoutcast

      1. PUMPKINHEAD
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        He's in your basement isn't he. I can tell

        1. Slouch87
          • 3 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          An ability to recognise like minded folk ?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years

    Scoutcast should have had a Scoutcast Team. One without Salah or Sterling to make it interesting. Each week, the community votes on a transfer after being given 2 or 3 options by the scoutcast panel.

    If you need more of these visionary ideas, just email me.

    1. Qaiss
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      I really like the scout cast but this year everyone has the same team and its just so boring. Hoping as the weeks go on, teams get more interesting

      1. Qaiss
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        The scout cast isn't boring, but the teams are.

      Can picture the sweat pouring off Jonty and Munday when they are forced to not take a template big hitter.

      This was tried a several seasons ago and it was a rubbish feature, and so was axed. One of these things that sounds good in theory, but is actually tedious in practice.

    I'm aware you can't see other people's transfer history... but can you even see your own?

    I can't seem to find it

    1. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      "View gameweek history"

      You can't see it until you've made transfers. You can't see others yet because they didn't make any transfers for GW1.

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      Both

      1. tielleman

        8 days, 12 hours ago

        Then I need to bench one of VVD, Robertson, Digne, Montoya, Barkley, KdB, Salah, Kane or King... Still both?

        1. Regin
          • 2 Years

          Bench trossard. Probably he'll come off the bench.

    1. Regin

      Not really. After wolves away, they have good fixtures.

    2. Slouch87
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Yes . Too many compromises elsewhere to accommodate both.

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

        Really? They cost Salah +3.5

      2. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        This.

  20. Regin
    • 2 Years
    8 days, 12 hours ago

    A. Mane, rash, 4.5 Hayden (have salah)

    B. Siggy, martial, Wilson

    B more balanced, a more explosive? Worth keeping Wilson?

  21. Regin

    If I had to chose 1 of zinchenko or AWB/ Maguire, who?

  22. Deulofale

    Captained Trent instead of Sterling in the opening week. Think I'll go for it again to make up for the lost points. Foolproof logic there.

    1. Deulofale
      • 3 Years

      And if that fails, TC Trent GW3

        1. Deulofale
          • 3 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          Hey matey. I'm pretty happy with him. He performed well, and I think we'll see a fair amount of rotation in top teams anyway, so he's not a proven waster yet. I'll give him time. Not worth a transfer until it's obvious at this stage, and it's mainly Rashford I wish I'd kept in my team, rather than a midfielder. Hope all well with you too

    Would like some advice please;

    I’m thinking of doing Robbo and Pérez for Zinchenko and Martial for a -4 if Martial is going to go up in value before the next FT comes in

    1. sirmorbach
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      I wouldn't do it, but I'm a FPL conservative.

      1. Poppa Klopp
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        Why not though? It’s seems smart move

        1. sirmorbach
          • 3 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          I think it's too soon. What if Martial does f-- all from now on? What if Pérez starts scoring?

          Robbo is Robbo. He will perform.

          Only one GW. I wouldn't take a hit unless I HAD to.

          But that's me.

  24. pundit of punts

    Plenty wanting to jump ship and get United attackers this gw.

    I have a feeling that it might be prudent to wait 1 more gw before getting any to see who emerges as the go to man.

    Many getting Martial in for the likes of Fraser/Moura but my gut says it's gonna be Rashford from United this season.

    Too early to make choices imo. Thoughts?

    1. Rinseboy
      • 7 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      price rises will be the issue. If Martial looks like he is gonna rise. I would priced our of Moura to Martial

    2. Qaiss
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Please don't get Martial everyone. You don't have him because you went boring and went Fraser/Lucas

      Sincerely, Martial owner 🙂

      1. Would Ed Woodward

        What if my plan was always Fraser to Martial in GW3, am I allowed to then?

      Anthony Martial last gw + last 2 seasons in pl

      - 3275 mins = (approximately 36 matches) -
      20 goals 10 assists So Martial was involved in 30 goals in last 36 matches for united

      He is fpl gold when he's a starter which he is this season and for 7.5 a great option..

      1. Rinseboy
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        This. a man utd No. 9 at 7.5 is pretty unheard of

    7. Slouch87
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Chelsea defence was abysmal. I'm not at all convinced yet that even one Utd mid or forward is necessary.

    8. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Moura for me was a 1 week punt - I was then going to jump on a good alternative, I believe martial can do well based on greater playing time and the counter attacking play Utd showcased. He didn't pass the eye test but that is often the case yet he still grabs a goal. It was a toss up between him and Fraser tbh. Pulisic I didn't get to see. Another option was plausibly McGinn. I'm a Utd fan so I made the Martial move.

      Fraser I'd keep if I ha him - great option.

      Martial is nowhere near a price increase

    9. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Martial had a better PPM than Rashford last season and if you multiply his last two seasons by 2 he's basically an elite option for 7.5; also if feels like there are more forward options at that price or less, but cheaper mids than Martial are few and far between; Fraser, Zaha, Willian? maybe Buendia/Iwobi/Mount? only injury risk is the problem

    10. RichardNixon
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Despite the score, I thought Utd were bang average against Chelsea for the first 65 minutes. On paper they are also bang average bar a couple of players. The press loves to build them up especially on Sky but watch them sharpen their knives once things turn sour. Chelsea were tactically naive and capitulated chasing the game, a games that they probably deserved to be a goal or two up before Man Utd put them away. If Chelsea scored early, as they easily could have, Utd wouldn't have been able to sit back and counter. Anyhow, I don't buy into the Utd hype and I'm having a punt on Wolves this weekend. Chelsea, Arsenal and Man Utd are all average football sides these days.
