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.

        You planning a whole day or just a single date idea?

        1. Bruce Lee
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 3 days ago

          whole day - we'll have a hotel to go back to 😉

          but there should really be something other than food that we go out for...

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 3 days ago

            Go for a walk or a bike ride together to build up a thirst for the pub 😉

            1. Bruce Lee
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              4 months, 3 days ago

              😛

            Well I'm not sure what forms of entertainment you have around where you live. But if you're one for nature, I think going hiking together is a good bonding experience. Otherwise, hard to go wrong with the cinema (I just watched the new Spider-Man and it was decent if you're into Marvel stuff). Art gallery or museum could be good if she's into that.

            1. Bruce Lee
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              4 months, 3 days ago

              i like the idea of hikes... we've gone on walks before

              not the biggest fan of movies though because you don't tend to communicate much... you would chat before and after... but for around 2 hrs you're looking at a screen
              don't get me wrong, movie dates could be great if you've been together for years...

              thanks for the advice 😀

        Pub

      • ewangri
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Outdoors stuff is good, something like GoApe? Not sure if there's anything like that close to your hotel

      • F0oTBall GuRu

          horror movie

      • alexdelarge
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        I was just toying with the idea of having Kane Auba Sterling and Salah

        It’d be something like

        4.0 Pope
        Rico Lund Montoya Söyuncu Kelly
        Martial Salah Sterling Pereyra Dendoncker
        Kane Pukki Auba

        Obviously I’m not doing it but anyways...Thoughts?

        1. Bruce Lee
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 3 days ago

          dat defence

        2. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Then teams reshuffled and Rico Lund Kelly all drop out... hypothetically

        3. Slouch87 Scott Talent
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Stick Ceballos in the midfield and you have another 4.5 def

        4. alexdelarge
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          True! Although I already had 0,5 in the bank. It’s an exhilarating team, more fun to rotate defence rather than always play VVD etc..

        5. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Seems about the best you can do in that setup but I'd prefer a 5.5m over Pereyra (Mcginn or Robinson) and would spend the additional 0.5m on upgrading one of the 4.0m defenders.

        6. Lacabacca
            4 months, 3 days ago

            If I went that far I would probably get Mane instead of Auba.

            1. alexdelarge
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 3 days ago

              With Salah as well?

              1. Lacabacca
                  4 months, 3 days ago

                  Sure. All 3 scored 22 each last season. Salah and Mane would be my personal preference.

            2. Slouch87 Scott Talent
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 3 days ago

              This is really tempting me as I never take this game seriously anyway .
              Something like

              Pope
              Soyuncu , Dunk , Elmohamady, Pieters , Lundstram
              Salah , Sterling , Perez , Ceballos, Dendoncker
              Kane, Aubamayang, Pukki

              1. F0oTBall GuRu
                  4 months, 3 days ago

                  nice team

                I have it currently and it wasn't as tough as i thought it would be.

                Ryan/Button
                VVD/Kwp/Ake/Rico/Montoya
                Salah/Sterling/Perez/Dendoncker/Hayden
                Auba/Kane/Greenwood

                Auba/Perez/Ake>>Pukki/KDB/Laporte (-4) Is my mind now for after this week but who knows what could happen between now and then.

                  Triple Brighton & double Bournemouth defence.
                  😆 😆
                  No really, this is good.

                    We scored the same amount? Lol

                    Also outside of Ake the other 4 were pretty common...

                    You are funny though!

                  • 5 Years
                  4 months, 3 days ago

                  Cudos! Although I’d be worried over the none playing ones.(But that’s on a more serious note than my proposed team)

                  1. GloryManUnited
                    • 1 Year
                    4 months, 3 days ago

                    Agreed, it will be all worked out in due time.

            3. Amr Abdelrahman
              • 2 Years
              4 months, 3 days ago

              AWB(Wol,A) Montoya(Whu,H) Lundstram(Cry,H)
              Martial(Wol,A)
              Wesley(Bou,H) Pukki(Nor,H) Maupay(Whu,H)

              choose 2 to sit on the bench ?

              Please Help

              1. CostaCoffee
                • 6 Years
                4 months, 3 days ago

                Tough one, I’d probably bench 2 defenders. Hard to choose though

              2. luk46
                • 1 Year
                4 months, 3 days ago

                Lundstram and Maupay, because Murray hopefully starts and he just gets about 30-40 mins I'd say...

            4. Kiwivillan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 3 days ago

              Watching highlights again Villa could've easily been 2 or 3 nil up against Spurs worst offence Grealish can put Trezeguet away 1 on 1 with early pass instead he delays it and defence catch up. Spurs first goal looked like deflection off Mings and 2nd was awful pinball in box fell kindly to Kane. Are Bournemouth going to beat us convincingly?

                • 1 Year
                4 months, 3 days ago

                3-3 imo

                1. Lacabacca
                    4 months, 3 days ago

                    King and McGinn hattricks? That would be euphoric.

                    1. Kiwivillan
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      4 months, 3 days ago

                      King to equal his total away goals from last season???

                      1. Lacabacca
                          4 months, 3 days ago

                          That wouldn't be the most unrealistic of expectations. Didn't Arsenal equal the total number of away clean sheets from last season already? 🙂

                    They do seem better on the road for goals, so yeah, think they will.

                        So do I. Zaha - Teckers - Townsend seem to suit away games more than home. Ironically Lundstram probably should play and do a job on Zaha but I think they'll start Luke Freeman instead and go for for goals, could be a few, at both ends.

                  Just watched the Scoutcast and my move (King to Pukki) was kind of endorsed in a scared kind of way!
                  And what the hell has happened to Luke, he's starting to turn dullard and it doesn't suit him 😉

                    I turned the sound off instinctively during "that bit", he is not the real Luke! 😆

                  Sticking with this lot for this week.
                  2 ft's next week + possibly a hit too depending how things go.

                  Ryan.
                  Robbo, VVD, Adam Smith, Coleman.
                  Sterling (vc), Salah (c), Perez, KDB.
                  Wilson, King.
                  Button, Lundstram, Wickham, Dendoncker.

                  Looking at a possible-
                  Robbo(or VVD)/KDB/Wilson -> AWB/Martial/Kane.. (Great fixtures at least)
                  Too knee jerky or good moves at this stage?

                  Thoughts on a Mane + Bobby double up for a few weeks from GW3 onwards?

                      Just floating the idea of Auba and Fraser shipped out for GW3. So if I don't go down the Spurs route its an option perhaps.

                    Salah + any 7.5 like Martial will outscore them both

                  KDB/Auba > Sterling/Rashford

                  Make the move or wait another week, will not be able to afford with price rise?

                    I'd be inclined to wait but the pricing out issue is real.

                    Rises still a day or two off. Drops might not happen for even longer.

                    You might manage a until the next gw

                      Odd. Was it like this last season? I can't remember. I would have thought Sterling at least would rise.

                        It was yep. The rises get slower and longer every season and the drops get longer and more unpredictable imo.

                        The crazy price rise money making wildcards of yesteryear are dead

                        Game over, man. Game over

                      Any chance Sterling stays at 12 until Saturday so I don't have to take a -4 to get him?

                    Is it worth -8 for this ? Desperate to get sterling in.

                    a) KDB, Siggy and Digne (currently on this)
                    B) Sterling, Martial and 4.0

                      I wouldn't get rid of siggy and digne this week mate and definitely not for a hit

                      hahah alright mates, wasnt convinced with sigg during gw1. watched the game and he was really bad. give him one more week then. btw, should i replace king with pukki ?

                        Many would say no, hold for another week and save FT which is likely the sensible move. I'm a King to Pukki man myself though (still have Fraser for Villa game).

                          *if you really want Sterling best to save FT this week and bring him in for GW3

                      Looking at a rival's team right now. They seem to have removed the value and transfers made box. Maybe no bad thing.

                      Save - you don't need Guilbert this week

                        He very well might.

                          He'd be unlucky but yes I suppose he could need him.

                      Elmo made absolute howler getting dispossessed from the kick off. I'd see if Guilbert gets a chance against Bournemouth

                      Same boat mate, I'm just gunna hold him for now although looking at your bench and the fact that Lundstrum is on the pitch I think you may need to seriously consider making a move.

                      Thanks all for the tips. Might save for now. Lund had a great game and picked up bonus points so i can't see why he would be dropped.

                    Thoughts on ManCity defenders?

                    Need to shave 0.5 off my defence and currently have TAA, VVD, Digne, 4.5,4

                    Don't want the risk of 2 4m defenders and not convinced on Coleman, so downgrading TAA to a City defender seems best move.

                    Obvious move is TAA to Laporte, but wondering whether Walker has more likely assist potential and is worth a slightly greater rotation risk?

                      Laporte the man to have at the back from city

                      Why do you need 0.5?

                        Difference between a 6m forward and a 6.5m forward - 6.5 gives much stronger and more nailed options.

                          Didn't you know that pre-season tho? Wesley is actually a good option at 6m imo

                      Maybe get Adrian in while Allison is injured and swap out Liverpool defender for City

                    Worth to have Wilson+Perez => Rashford+McGinn??

                    Seems the forms of BOU and LEI are not good enough

                      Not for a hit and McGinn is one to wait on

                      Form based on 1 game? That said I always said Bournemouth early fixtures were much tougher than people made out

                      Can't really judge form on one match - either combination could work next week...

                      1 shot last week. Watch Villa highlights. We weren't that bad Spurs just different class from most the league. I'm predicting 3-0 Villa win

                    Get rid of zinchenko now for lundstram to keep 1.5 ITB? Surely zinc is at risk of being rotated?

                      Zinc still good, I reckon. Mendy made of wet tissue paper, Laporte the best and only natural lcb, and not sure about Cancelo at lb yet. Eps vs Spurs

                      Lundy done well but not exactly totally nailed

                    I have Salah/Sterling/Auba in my team. I am the only one having Auba in my ML and the 2 others are almost in every team.
                    Should I play it safe and (C) Salah this week or go the riskier route and (C) Auba ?
                    (I am currently 1st of my ML)

                      Don't worry about what they've got just play who you think will score more.

                        Yeah but it is like 50/50 for me between Salah and Auba this week. That is why I was looking at what is the "safest" option... Might not be the good way to look at it tho

                      Auba is a good cap anyway, do it.

                      Captain Salah. Watched the Burnley v Southampton game and Burnley's defence is looking like their 2017/18 model, whereas the Saints defence looked very suspect. Can see Salah having a field day.

                      1st in ML in the first week means nothing at this stage. Stick with salah
