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.

      So who is still in for Tammy with Mount possibly out? Extra pressure to deliver the goods.

      I do not see this ending well.

        Is Mount injured?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
            1 month, 3 days ago

            He may be. Hold onto him = Martial.

        Hate to see that. Genuine tackle from Robertson, and the Napoli player simulates a dive over his outstretched leg.

        Not even a Liverpool fans. Why the hell have VAR?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
            1 month, 3 days ago

            VAR just a load of BS to disrupt the game.

            Does not stop anyone from diving.

          VAR is ridiculous. Not a pen, but not a clear error because it looked like a pen, so it's a pen?

          Madness.

            Agreed. Why doesn't var just say whether it's a pen or not.

            Another filthy dive

              Wesley was not impressed by Mount's reaction

            Has that been photoshopped?

              Nope, he really does put his hand in the air like that when he tackles.

          what the is the point in having VAR if you're not going to overturn ridiculously penalty decisions?!?!?! That was NEVER a penalty!!!!

                    It was probably a higher negative number before the weekend.

                  He's closer to a price drop than a price rise.

                Seems like the English CL dominance is already over

                  What dominance?

                  English teams have been embarrassed in Europe this decade by the Spainish.

                      I'm guessing he thinks Manchester United dominate the Premier League too. They've won the most titles in the last 10-20 years.

                Jorgino is great penalty taker. I hate being coccky like Barkley and he is terible at penalties.

                Anyone else reckon Liverpool Chelski could be a seriously high scoring affair on Sunday?

                Both teams suspect at the back of late, and almost a week’s recovery time to stew over what will likely be two bad European results they’ll want to bounce back from...

                I’m thinking 4-2 or 4-3 to Liverpool

                Salah captaincy is a distinct possibility depending on Sterling minutes tomorrow

                    Very true

                    It could also be middle scoring

                    I do think there are some stars aligning to make it a goal fest though

                  Hi guys!

                  What are your thoughts on this wildcard team?

                  i tried to keep double city because of fixtures but also wanted Son. Only regret is not having Aubameyang.

                  When did this start that players could just grab the ball and decide they were the penalty taker.

                    Lack of strong leadership / management

                    Imagine that happening in a team captained by Terry or Keane - nope

                      I’d give my right arm for a young Roy Keane to suddenly arrive at old Trafford

                          Funny you mentioned: Roy Keane ended Haaland’s fathers career by injuring him with perpest.

                            Keane was injured in A duell with Alfie Haaland. Then when fit, he attacked Alfie on perpest for revenue and that was the end of his career. True hero, Roy Keane... would have been prison if not on A stadium

                              One of Keane's many cowardly acts, a disgrace of a man.

                              It was a truly shocking tackle from Keane, but what goes around comes around - Haaland made that particular bed by choosing to taunt Keane when he was down on the ground with his knee blown apart (Keane was out for a year with that injury)

                              And yes he is a true hero, I can’t think of many better performances than Juve away ‘99 - but he had hundreds of games of that nature

                                  And hence we come full circle back to today - where id give my right arm for a young Roy Keane to arrive at old Trafford

                                  What a player 😉
