Scoutcast Episode 300 – Spartans

After around a decade of shows the Scoutcast has reached the momentous 300 episode mark.

From its origins, when Mark and Granville used to find time to podcast during their lunch break at work, to the live stream video version of today, the Scoutcast has long been a staple part of Fantasy manager’s lives.

But while the cast and technology has changed the issues remain the same.

One of these recurring themes has been the arguments that greet any cast member’s decision to Wildcard. This week’s show, ahead of Gameweek 5, is no different.

Knowing full well what may happen Joe tentatively presents his team overhaul to co-hosts Az and Neale. In Scoutcast tradition he then has defend his decisions, like one of the 300 Spartans who famously took on an army more than 2,000 years ago.

Elsewhere, the crew take a look back at some of the many mistakes and small successes of Gameweek 4 and how they plan to turn their fortunes around this coming weekend.

Kevin De Bruyne’s captaincy credentials, the best clean sheet prospects and Arsenal’s fixtures are among issues on the bill.

The crew also reveal what factors they use when making decisions, which covers everything from the growth of expected stats to the eye and even ‘ear test’.

Meanwhile, Neale’s differential shout for September and October ensures the arguments continue.

This episode wraps up with a tribute to an unlikely Scoutcast star over the years and details of how to help the charity that originally looked after him.

      Possible c/s but I wouldn’t bet against Pukki scoring against anyone atm!

      city cs ~40%
      leicester cs ~20%

      1. Wakanda 4ever

        These CS odds are BS. Doesn't help from FPL perspective

        1. liverpool01

          lol

          If they bs why dont you bet your assets vs them and retire tomorrow?

    4. Kanchelskis

      Scoring the odd goal has not been Utd's problem this year.

    5. FPLGraham

      Anyone else watch the full City-Brighton game? MOTD highlights didn't show all Brighton's chances / good positions. watching it towards the end with Zinchenko's CS in the balance wasn't fun at all, and they even got in a couple of times in the first half before City ran away with it.

      Anything similar to that vs Norwich, and I'd back Pukki to slot one away.

    When you ask a bloke who covers injuries for a living advice on FPL captaincy https://twitter.com/BenDinnery/status/1171750559508029441?s=20

      His argument makes 0 sense. Everyone has that same problem of post Intl. Break team unsettled-ness.

      If you think Sterling is nailed on and will start vs Norwich, get him. If you don't/are unsure, which I am, go Salah. Salah is the safe option this week for sure.

    Not sure what to do here! Keep? Any suggestions? How fit in KDB? 1.9 itb
    Pope
    TAA Matip Walker Zienchenko Digne
    Salah Sterling Mount Hayden
    Kane

    1. EMBOLOFAN

      by getting rid of harold. pick 2 premiums

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

        Who's Harold

      2. Kanchelskis
        • 2 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        Kane out only way, but who are your other 2 strikers?

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

          4.5s

    2. liverpool01
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      your defence is stacked easy way is to downgrade Kane

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

        Is it worth downgrading Kane to get KDB?

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

          If that then must downgrade walker or Zienchenko as well

          1. liverpool01
            • 1 Year
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            I would do it, I wouldn't want to start Hayden

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

          I suspect KDB will outpoint Kane this year.

        3. roflbeard
          • 5 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          For me, yes. KDB capable of getting 2+ assists/game every flipping week. Take into account the City fixtures on the way and it's a no brainer. Kane out. Maybe Walker to Lowton for a Burnley double up too? Top of the ticker for next few weeks.

    3. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Move funds from defense to forwards.

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

      He also rocked up to training just days after the GW3 injury.. doesn’t mean he is necessarily fit or going to play, but I am hopeful.

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Fingers crossed he’s good to go!

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

      Does he ever leave that car?

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

      he’d be there even if he’s not fit to play this weekend

      Ole arriving in a Cortina...

    Ah the days of Mark and Granville *sigh*

  5. jimski
    • 8 Years
    8 days, 12 hours ago

    It's that age-old question of whether to start Lundstram or Dunk this week?

    1. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      I like Lundy there.

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

        Yeah, that's who I'm on at the moment, due to attacking potential.

    2. roflbeard
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Starting Lunny over Pukki this week. Lord have mercy.

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

        It could pay off. Unlikely Pukki gets more than a goal, and only a small chance of that really. Still, I wouldn't dare!

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

        I’m doing the opposite. :). Good luck though.

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

          Mon the blank! City should've conceded to Brighton last time out, you're probably in the right there mate. Good luck.

        You forgot the rest mate: "... but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he." :).

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          8 days, 11 hours ago

          Yeah but John. He didn't get dunked

  6. fuzzymike

    who do you captain when you got Salah, Sterling, DeBruyne & Aguero??

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

      I'd captain Aguero if I had him. Otherwise Salah. Both should be fresh and get good minutes.

    2. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      I'm going Salah.

    3. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Kun at home.

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

        Kun away?

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        I've seen you say this a few times. Aguero is not at home this week.

    4. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Playing with KDB and TAA currently. Not sure newcastle at home is an explosive game for an attacker imo

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

        Unless you're norwich

        1. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          Different approach vs a team that had just lost their first game 4-1 than the best team in the world

      2. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        4-0 last season tho, against an equally defensive minded Newcastle under Rafa.

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

          Stop making me have thoughts!

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            Ha, who you going for?

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

              It's on KDB currently. Salah having a week of good training and time at home with his family makes me agree with you though. Have missed his double digit hauls by captaining Sterling twice already this season.

        2. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          True shouldn’t be basing it too much on their performance vs spurs as spurs really aren’t at it this year

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            Exactly.

            1. Ask Yourself
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              As a very good FPL person what do you think of my dilemma on the previous page? To save you the clicks it is A) Salah + Schar (part of a perfect 3 way rotation with Söyüncü and Lundstram) vs B) Mane + Digne (also with soy and Lund but need strong bench due to TAA and Ota “rotation risks”

              Would mean a lot thanks x

                8 days, 11 hours ago

                Give me a few mins, will have a look.

                1. Ask Yourself
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                • 9 Years
                8 days, 11 hours ago

                That's tough, I like Salah this week and he'll be my captain, plus that defensive rotation looks appealing, but I'd try and make it simple.

                How often will you captain Salah over say, the next 8 game weeks?

                If often, go for him and Schar.

                If not very often, go Digne and Mane would be my advice.

                Good luck!

            Moura scores an open goal, they get a pen - different story. Newcastle will fight but an early goal or two are heads will drop. My guess is both man city and Liverpool score 3+

  8. The Casual One

    play Lunstram or Cantwell?

    1. PAL
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      I'm playing Lundstram and benching Cantwell because I'm also starting Zinchenko.

      1. Joyce1998
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        This is the gw you need to play lund and bench Cantwell which I'm doing too. If you've pukki I'll play him too

    My goalies are Ederson & Ryan, plannign to free up funds by downgrading Ederson to a 4.0 goalie. What are your thoughts?

    A) Ederson > Button (2.2 itb)
    C) AWB > Otamendi (0.3 itb)
    B) Ederson & AWB > Button & Otamendi (2.3 itb, -4 hit)

    Also planning to do Martial & Greenwood > Maddison & 7.4 striker in coming weeks, most likely when there's a turn in fixtures. Just trying to figure out what order to do things in!

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

      Slightly confused me by putting C in between A and B! But I'd go C.

    Any £4.4 defenders worth getting to rise an extra £0.1 value? Possible names could be Femina, Cathcart, Guilbert ?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      guilbert of those

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        Txs - played the last two, so hopefully gets a run

  12. Wheato182
    • 6 Years
    8 days, 12 hours ago

    Seen people benching Pukki - am i missing something? Red hot form, home to city who have haven't looked particularly tight at the back and who will also have their best centre back missing....can easily see a high scoring game with Pukki pinching one.

    1. onceuponatyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      This. He's def starting for me.

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

      Wasn't red hot against West Ham. Still Man City

      1. Wheato182
        • 6 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        1 game in game in 4. He's also scored against Liverpool, Chelsea and during the international break....

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          8 days, 11 hours ago

          Sure but I don't see him easily pinching one, so can understand those preferring to play someone else.

          1. Wheato182
            • 6 Years
            8 days, 11 hours ago

            Each to their own I suppose. I just never see the point in benching a striker (unless he's bench fodder) for a defender or midfielder.

            1. MTPockets
              • 10 Years
              8 days, 11 hours ago

              Ordinarily I'd agree, but not necesarily vs mci/liv (there were similar statements about Barnes 4G in 3 ahead of Liverpool). But if it's rolling the dice on Pukki vs. any likely 2pt def/mid then for sure I'd play Pukki.

    3. Sergeant Garcia
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Yeah, without Laporte they won't be that tight I imagine

    4. roflbeard
      • 5 Years

      Feel like such a maverick having him on the bench right now. Out of Pukki (MCI), Jota (CHE), Lundstram (SOU) and McGinn (WHU) who would you bench?

      1. Wheato182
        • 6 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        Lundstram or McGuinn

      City have conceded just 13 goals in 21 away league games since the beginning of last season, can’t see it being high scoring for Norwich, but you never know with Laporte out.

      1. Wheato182
        • 6 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        I do agree to a certain extent, think if there's 6 goals in the game it will prob be 5-1 or 4-2 to city.

        I just don't think they look that tight, their clean sheets seem to start really racking up during the business end of the season.

        Norwich clearly want to attack and City won't be setting out to stop them.

    6. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years

      I wouldn’t be confident of a Pukki return but if they do score chances are that it’s him.

    Would you take a hit to get rid joelinton for Barnes

    Or haller if I choose to get pieters instead of otamendi as laporte replacement?

    Or just play joelinton

    1. Wheato182
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Play Joelinton, could easily pinch a consolation against that high line of Liverpools.

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        Thanks might do! Bit of a differential, would you prefer haller pieters or Barnes otamendi for next gw?

        1. Wheato182
          • 6 Years
          8 days, 11 hours ago

          I'm liking the look of Haller at the mo (prob cuz i have him!)

          I moved for Ota this week and will be moving for Barnes next. Lowton/Pieters and Haller are good shouts though. Lowton + Barnes + Sacking off Martial even better though 🙂

          1. Rhodes your boat
            • 3 Years
            8 days, 11 hours ago

            Ideally want otamendi and haller but trying to decide who I want/ need more!

            Similar strategy then!

    How to fit KDB in?

    Vardy > 6.5
    Lanzini > KDB?

    Pope
    Digne Robbo Lundstram
    McGinn Lanzini Sterling Salah
    Pukki Haller Vardy

    Heaton Dendoncker Diop Kiko

    1. Lukakuna
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      I'd sell Vardy yeah

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Can’t have them all. You’ve a decent balance there. I don’t have KDB either but saving FT. Can see city rotation kicking in with Europe coming.

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

        Thanks!

      2. Lukakuna
        • 2 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        Good point, but KDB getting out of reach price wise is a concern

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

          Exactly, and it's cruel watching City with those fixtures without owning KDB. He's on fire and doesn't look like stopping any time soon.

  15. Lukakuna
    • 2 Years
    8 days, 12 hours ago

    How would you get KDB?

    A) Auba Perez > Haller KDB (-4)
    B) VVD Perez > Lowton KDB (-4)

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

      A

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Selling Auba before those fixtures is dirty.

  16. Bohemian Rhapsody

    RMT.... Going without KDB crazy for this week?

    Heaton
    VVD, Roberton, Lund
    McGinn, Siggy, Fraser, Sterling, Salah*
    Wisley, Wilson

    (Button, Lowton, Greenwood, Kelly)

  17. as33

    Is Kelly gonna play this week?

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Wait for the pressers, but even if he does would you place him away to Spurs ?

  18. Robin Van Persie (C)
    • 1 Year
    8 days, 11 hours ago

    Does anyone else think that Abraham is a better option than Haller?

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Not with Europe and more competition + won’t be on the end of defensive howlers every week.

  19. Miguel Sanchez

    Kompany missing his own testimonial with injury.

      Kompany injured?

      My shock.

    2. Robin Van Persie (C)

      Holy Moly

    3. Sergeant Garcia

      *pretends to be shocked*

  20. tommoeommo
    • 10 Years
    8 days, 11 hours ago

    Pope, Button
    VVD, TAA, Zinchenko, Digne, Lundstram
    Sterling, Salah, Mount, Cabellos, Dendonk
    Vardy, King, Greenwood

    1.7m in the bank

    Was thinking a straight swap Vardy > Haller due to Leicester fixtures, which would give me 3.1m in the bank (although not sure what to spend it on the week after)

    Another alternative would be to do Vardy > Aguero and find the 1.5m needed by downgrading VVD to a 5m defender for a 4 point hit.

    Any thoughts appreciated

    Thoughts on this lot?

    A) Emerson --> Otamendi
    B) Save FT

      Decent side that I worry about no sterling!

      Mane and sterling to outscore KDB and Salah IMO

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Pope over Adrian for sure. He's the best Burnley to get by far.

      Lowton > Soyuncu or Mings. Prefer Soy because he rotates quite well with Lundstram.

      1. Robin Van Persie (C)
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        Thanks! Soyu & Lund rotation looks tempting!

  23. Robin Van Persie (C)
    • 1 Year

    A. Sterling & Greenwood
    B. Aguero & Guendouzi

    1. Differential (c)

      A, think Greenwood is on the verge of starting games.

      Nice. Save for sure

    2. FPL Pillars

      Wilson has returned every week, save.

  26. Teddy Brewski

    What do we think folks? Play Ayew (tot) or Cantwell (MCI) this week?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Ayew

    2. HarryB29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Think Ayew for me

  27. casparschwa
    • 3 Years
    8 days, 11 hours ago

    Pope (Button)
    TAA Digne VVD Zinchenko Lund
    Salah Sterling Martial Perez (Dendocker)
    Pukki Barnes (Greenwood)

    I have got to get rid of this ancient relic Perez... I am leaning towards sticking with Martial for now as I am not convinced of Martial -> James or Mount.

    Unfortunately I am 0.3 short for doing Perez, VVD -> KDB, Mings.

    Only other option coming to mind is Perez, Martial, VVD -> KDB, James (or Mount), Mings (or Soc).

    Any other ideas?

    1. casparschwa
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      I'm actually considering to save my FT and just bench Perez and see what happens after the GW. That would give me 2 FTs to adjust next week

      1. MTPockets
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        Yeah think I'd wait if it's KDB you want (unless willing to get a cheapo defender, which seems risky when already have Greenwood and Dendoncker)

  28. Cheesyzoot
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Thoughts on this WC draft? Can just afford with 0 ITB

      Pope, (Button)
      Digne, Maitland-N, Otamendi, (Kelly, Lundstrum)
      Sterling, KDB, Salah, Cantwell, Wilson
      Tammy, Haller, Barnes

      Current team:

      Pope, (Button)
      VVD, Robertson, Lundstram, (Kelly, KWP)
      Salah, Sterling, David Silva, Mount, Fraser
      Haller, Pukki, (Greenwood)

      Go for the WC or hold? Pulling my hair out on this one lads.....

    • casparschwa

      Thoughts on going Dilva/KDB instead of Sterling/KDB long term? That money saved on Dilva is just huge.

      1. casparschwa
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        or is it just a recipe to get absolutely wrecked?!

      2. Robin Van Persie (C)
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        Sterling/Aguero & KDB/DSilva is the way to go!
