Podcast

Scoutcast and Champions League combine for Tuesday night double-up

Joe is joined by David and Karam for the latest episode of the Scoutcast tonight.

You can watch it on our YouTube channel from 8pm BST to 9pm BST.

This episode overlaps with the return of European football to our screens.

Liverpool and Chelsea take on Napoli and Valencia respectively as the Champions League group stages get underway on Tuesday night.

We will have Scout Notes on those matches on Wednesday, but for now, there’s a brand new episode of the Scoutcast to occupy your attention.

On tonight’s agenda are the best cheap defenders now that the premium ones have frustrated their owners.

We’ll also discuss how best to cover Manchester City in the wake of their surprise defeat at Norwich.

Finally, we’ll debate how to recover from a poor start to the season as many managers have endured a tough few weeks.

    How long do scout pick challenge usually take to come out? Might be my one thing I'm proud of this week

      Friday probably.

        Top of page... Should've utilised it damn

    Really hope Sterling just gets a short run out tmr

      Hope he plays 90 ๐Ÿ˜›

        Cheeky bugger. Why? You own him too ๐Ÿ˜†

        I hope Kun gets a full run out though!

    2. Scott Talent

      Think you're pissing in the wind there.

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        ??

        They are playing Shakhtar. And with a plethora of other attacking options.

  3. Heaton Mess
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 21 days ago

    Bottomed

    WC team. Ditched the heavy defence for strong attack. Worth a shot?

    Pope
    Trent - Yoshida - Lundstram
    Mane - De Bruyne - Sterling - Cantwell
    Aubameyang - Pukki - Abraham

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      Attack looks nice but you could get massacred with that defence.

      One premium too many I think

    2. MTPockets
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      Looks good, assuming Yoshida's nailed

    3. The Dance
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      That defence and having to still play Cantwell each week? not for me thanks.

      1. Dthinger
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        for the next few weeks, Cantwell looks pretty good

        1. The Dance
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 21 days ago

          I know but still.... if i had a decent defence then Cantwell could be plausible, but not along with a poor defence.

  4. noahzark22
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 21 days ago

    Heaton
    Robertson, van Dijk, Digne
    Cantwell, Sigurdsson, De Bruyne, Robinson
    Pukki, Aubameyang, Callum Wilson

    Button, Lundstram, Martial, Fredericks

    Did a quick transfer of Perez to Cantwell to save some cash and catch price rise. 1FT left and 1.5 ITB. Still have WC

    Midfield I think needs more work. Martial or Siggy out for the last FT or hold it? Leaning toward hold

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      Tough one. Was gonna say WC looking at the midfield and double pool defence, but you’re doing miles better than me currently and I haven’t played mine either. Mainly down to my poor captain choices and bringing KDB in at the worst possible week lol.

      You could probably hold this week, but could get ugly if/when salah Mane go big again and sterling starts firing

      1. noahzark22
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        I think i'm fine with KDB over Sterling. No Mane/Salah has me some concern right now, but I've obviously had a couple of good weeks that not having one hasn't hurt me.

    2. MTPockets
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      You're very patient on Martial, but yeah hold I guess (Son's too pricey I think)

      1. noahzark22
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        a touch too pricey without taking a hit

    3. The Dance
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      I'd wildcard that in a heartbeat.

      1. noahzark22
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Who would you change out?

        1. Dthinger
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 21 days ago

          your whole defense and 3/5 of your midfield

        2. The Dance
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 21 days ago

          Well you're bound to be doing light years better than me in tersm of rank, but the start to the brutal season has been...well....brutal haha.
          The players that are jumping out at me though are Robertson, VVD, Digne even....along with Siggy, Robinson, Martial, and Wilson (Bou are just so hot and cold).
          Lots of changes.

    4. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      Isnt Robinson injured?

      1. noahzark22
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        don't think so

  5. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 21 days ago

    I see Aurier not travelled to Greece for CL game so VVD to Aurier might be best move?

          Sorry, that sounded really sarcastic and pissy.

          No worries.

      Interesting. Keeping my eye on Aurier

  6. Crazygopher

    Rash to aub for -4

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      Yeah I would do that move

    2. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      you have 2m in the bank?

    3. Crazygopher
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 21 days ago

      2.6 mill in bank. Just did vvd to rico. That's why it would be a hit of 4

  7. ManUnitedComeBack
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 21 days ago

    Which pair do you reckon scores more through to the next IB?

    A) David Silva + Vardy
    B) Son + King

    1. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      b

      1. ManUnitedComeBack

        Thanks

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 21 days ago

      B due to Son probs. Son vs Vardy will be close as will King vs Dilva

      Don't talk about FPL.

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Surely a quick mention of being top 2k for 3 weeks will get me the job!

        1. TorresMagic™

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years

          Looks like 2.4+m

          1. Tsparkes10
            • 1 Year
            9 months, 21 days ago

            Shhh that's this year. They don't need to know about that

    3. Poseidon.
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 21 days ago

      Head office type job or in store? If the latter, I think the main thing is to just relax (though I find it doesn’t hurt to try and appear a little nervous - stating as much in the past has taken the pressure off a little) - good luck!

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Just an in store mate. Only 18 but first real interview ๐Ÿ™‚ should be chill tbf. Can't imagine it'll be intense in anyway

    4. The Dance
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      In any job like that it's all about putting the customer first, whatever they ask, build answers around that, can't go far wrong bud.

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Yhh true, cheers ๐Ÿ™‚ previous examples the way to go

        1. The Dance
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 21 days ago

          For sure, and jsut how the job criteria matches your skill set and using examples liek you say and to whatever they can ask ๐Ÿ™‚

      Be passionate. Find out how they manage to manufacture their clothes so cheaply and have suggestions on how customer service is key.

      If you go thinking it’s a short term holiday job then how will you stand out from everyone else?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Yup. Tbh it's a gap year job so I'll mention that and flexible timetable etc. Should be goood,

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          nice, good luck!

    6. mookie

      Tell them you won't tell anyone if you find help notes in the clothing.

    7. MTPockets
      • 11 Years

      Don't mention Bangladesh or workers' rights

    8. Avon calling
      • 6 Years

      When they ask if you have any questions for them, say 'rashford to auba for -4?'.

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Hahahhaha, easy yes.

    9. clodhopper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      9 months, 21 days ago

      Make sure you let them know your terms and conditions tell them you want a decent salary 50 k ish 3 day week and 48 days holiday plus bank holidays a year start as you mean too go on you will walk it break a leg

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Was thinking something like that, hopefully a 20% cleansheet bonus aswell

    10. ManUnitedComeBack
      • 3 Years

      Once you ace the interview, request to be assigned to the Manchester outlet, then get insider team news from Sterling

  9. Clickzy
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 21 days ago

    What should I do with my 2 FTs? 0.1 ITB.

    Pope (Button)

    VVD - AWB - Zinchenko (Lundstram - Kelly)

    Mane - Sterling - KDB - Son - Cantwell

    Pukki - Haller (Greenwood)

    Thanks

      TM’s advice but then consider VVD + AWB > TAA + Aurier

      1. Clickzy
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Yeah I was thinking maybe just AWB > Aurier this week and focus on Chelsea assets for their fixtures next GW onwards perhaps

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          9 months, 21 days ago

          Yeah, I have Maguire and Christensen and while Maguire is nailed, I’d be reluctant to play him in United’s next 5 or so games.

          Might keep and sell Christensen for Aurier as I’m not certain he’s in Frank’s plans, despite the good fixtures.

          1. Clickzy
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 21 days ago

            Not convinced on United's defence myself despite the clean sheet

  10. Openboxman

    Digne captain this week.

    Have I lost it?

    1. Avon calling

    Hi guys, missed all games today. Is Mount injury serious? :/

    1. Clickzy
      • 4 Years

      Ankle injury, went off limping. Severity assessed within the next 2 days according to Lampard

    I like the idea of getting points for regaining possession like they’re doing in UCL Fantasy - I believe it’s a point per 4 balls recovered?

    Only thing is doesn’t look like they do bonus points in that game - or if they do, how has a hattrick not wanted Haland any? ๐Ÿ˜†

    1. Konig Luther
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      1pt per 3 balls recovered

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Is it? I’ll take your word for it then. Nice to see players getting more points - pleasing to the eye after a few crap weeks ๐Ÿ˜†

    Would you guys sub out Pizzi (3pts) for Lodi who plays Juve tomorrow??

  14. AYLD28
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 21 days ago

    Think I’ve settled on my wildcard bar 2 moves:

    Pope
    Digne TAA Soyuncu Lundstram Tomori
    Sterling KDB Son Cantwell XX
    Pukki Abraham XX

    1. Mane + 4.5
    2. 4.5 + Aubam

    Thoughts?

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      1. Despite 4.5 fwd not playing, the rest of your squad likely gets minutes most weeks, and I trust Liverpool attack more than I trust arsenal, no matter the fixtures / Auba being efficient

    2. Garlana
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      I'd take aubam for fixtures

    Sparkes - you taking a gap year or is this an at-uni part time job? I think I’m right in remembering we’re in the same year, and I leave for uni this Thurs

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 21 days ago

      Gap year mate, went to Thailand and just made me want to rethink everything tbh. So take some time to chill, focus on playing football, gym and earning some money haha. Wbu mate? You go with UK or USA in the end?

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Oh nice one! That’ll be a fun experience I’m sure man.

        Went with UK in the end, university of Bath - best combo of degree and my sport.

        Plus, miles cheaper than us for undergrad. If I come out of uni smart enough could maybe try for a postgrad in the states though, best of both worlds then ๐Ÿ˜†

        Enjoy bro

          Cheers bro, love to see that. Be a crazy new experience but you'll love it and girls will go crazy for an American haha. Especially a swimmer!

          Yhh that'd be insane, don't see why you couldn't tbf. Met loads of Americans in Thailand and all seemed pretty smart hahaha. Never stopped talking about trump though

              Oh mad, living the life ahahaha. Scottish will still get you many points haha.

              Was tryna be nice tbh cause the Americans were annoying Hahaha.

              Hope it all goes well, how many in your accoms?

                ๐Ÿ˜† aye. Naw that’s fair game, some lovely Americans but lots of annoying buggers too lol - although I suppose that’s the same everywhere.

                Cheers man. Quite a few I think, it’s like 35 per floor and there’s like 5 floors, and 5 diff buildings! Something like that.

    Who scores more from these options say over the next few weeks?

    A) Lanzini & Mount (pending news)
    B) Son & Cantwell

    Cheers guys.

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 21 days ago

      B easy mate. Son will go crazy imo and Cantwell loves a home fixture atm. Don't rate Lanzini and Mount will do okay but probs assist more likely than goals

      1. The Dance
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        I thought so too, i have Tammy as well anyway as pool cover.

        Option B though would be for -8? (eek!)

        Pope
        Digne - TAA - Zinc
        Lanzini - Sterling - Salah - KDB - Mount
        Pukki - Abraham
        ______________________________
        Button: Lundy, Wickham, Hanley

        Would mean having to do: Lanzini + Mount + Digne >> Cantwell, + Son + 4.6 Def

        1. The Dance
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 21 days ago

          Or........ i could keep Digne and do Zinchenko to a 4.0m defender, which is tempting also.

        2. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 21 days ago

          Digne could score decent against us unfortunately and Son not the best of fixtures. If Mount fit then I'd save tbf

          1. The Dance
            • 8 Years
            9 months, 21 days ago

            Yeah i would liek to keep Digne. i would of though Son has great fixtures right up until GW 10?
            Will defo wait on mount news first.

              Sorry meant not best fixture this week so could wait. One of reasons I didn't wc tbh, want both Vardy and Son but don't like their fixtures this week

                • 8 Years
                9 months, 21 days ago

                Ahhh ok cool, yeah admittedly wouldn't be the most ideal fixture but i do know Son has always scored well at the King Power. Arghhhh, it's just that -8, will wait on Mount news first though.

      Easily Son and Cantwell I think. Pains me to say as a Mount owner (well, I own Cantwell too), but I’d love to fit Son in if I could, and he far trumps Lanzini

      1. The Dance
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Cheers bud, well the moves to get it that way are above, just nail biting if it's worth a -8, sitting awfull unpretty at 2.6mil and something has to change.

    4. KNOW IT ALL
      9 months, 21 days ago

      A

    5. PUKKIPARTY
      9 months, 21 days ago

      B) Lanzini not convincing vs Villa

      1. The Dance
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        I agree, thoughts on the moves above mate?

        Kind of thinking Zinc to a 4.0 to facilitate it instead of Downgrading Digne who is more of a mainstay than Zincs inevitible ousting by Mendy.

        1. PUKKIPARTY
          9 months, 21 days ago

          Everton has been so poor lately so I would ditch Digne. Zinchenko was the second most creative defender before last GW If im not wrong

          1. The Dance
            • 8 Years
            9 months, 21 days ago

            It certainly would make it more balanced to pic up a 4.6 defender than a 4.0 that's for sure, and Zinc could stay until dropped i guess, easy switch to Alder etc isn't it.
            I do love Digne, but he's looking more and more expendable at that price by the day.

    Likely that Lampard plays Tomori more?

    1. PUKKIPARTY
      9 months, 21 days ago

      I think he is ahead of Zouma and Christensen. Lampard is here to play young academy players

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Aubameyang presumably

      Thank you. Thinking of taking a hit rash to aub

  20. @fpl_phenom

    who makes way for Aubamayang ?

    A: Mane
    B Sterling
    C: KDB
    D: Son
    E: Forget Aubamayang you cant be selling any of those players !!

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      E if I’m honest. Sterling next week he blanks again though, but that’s v risky

      1. @fpl_phenom
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 21 days ago

        ye but Id still have Mane KDB Son Cantwell midfield.... he who dares and all that

  21. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 21 days ago

    Thought on Montoya, Wesley to Rico, Abraham (-4). If Montoya plays he could do well tbf.

    1. The Dance
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      I reckon i'd do that for a hit if Rico can remain the bench player mate.

  22. @fpl_phenom
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Sterling V Aubamayang this weekend...

    Sterling H to Watford , no pens, will play wide, poor form , higher rotation risk to Aubamayang £1.1M more expensive

    Aubamayang H to Villa , Pens, Will play upfront, lethal form, less of a rotation risk to Sterling , £1.1M cheaper

    Aubamayang wins hands down...

    Caveats... City are better than Arsenal..... I think thats about it is it.....

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      Sure captain Auba if you have. I don’t though, so hoping Sterling gets reduced mins in UCL ready to absolutely spank Watford with a hattrick - repeat of last season!!

      1. @fpl_phenom
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        all eyes on tomorrow night then ... I kind of wouldnt mind a niggle of an injury on him to make the decision for me ... terrible I know...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          On godddd I feel the same way about players sometimes lol. Him or KDB get crocked and I’m taking a hit for Son

          1. @fpl_phenom
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 21 days ago

            I got Son early... like as soon as he was back from suspension... one of my better moves....

            Sterling is due a rest soon isnt he... if he doesnt get it midweek its a little ominous for the weekend is it you think ?

  23. KINGS
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 21 days ago

    Don’t understand why Sterling is the most transfer out this week ahead of Watford game

    1. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 21 days ago

      2 blanks... many have other City attackers also ... Aubamayang , Aguero doing bits I guess

      2 blanks. Possible rest. Other options that are returning points

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Couldn’t tell ya exactly but pretty soon. Only 5.9, could be a great Mount replacement if he’s out long

  25. @fpl_phenom

    Hi DZ.

    Kane + AWB > Barnes + Digne for free

    or just Kane > Aubameyang?

  30. Trophé Mourinho

    could Kane be about to explode? I can see that happening

    1. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nothing indicates that he will. Waste of money.

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        9 months, 21 days ago

        Yea thats how he is, I think the rest of the team scoring and chipping in will give him confidence/take pressure off of him. Maybe not this week but soon
