Scoutcast Episode 306 – What to do about Aguero and Man City rotation?

Manchester City rotation and the fallout from Leicester City’s remarkable 9-0 win over Southampton dominate the discussion in this week’s Scoutcast.

David and Az have the perfect guest to reflect on the rout at St. Mary’s, as they are joined by Foxes fan and Jamie Vardy captainer Andy Goddard.

Andy also reveals how he has ascended to the top of the FFS Mods and Cons mini-league despite – or perhaps because of – having no Liverpool and Manchester City representation.

There is plenty of airtime devoted to Pep Guardiola’s maddening tinkering as the debate rages over how we handle the unpredictability of the champions’ starting XIs.

A discussion on the defensive template also throws up various names, both budget and premium.

Andy takes his turn to choose a differential after the success of Joe’s Neal Maupay pick, while David reveals the best teams for clean sheets.

There’s plenty of roughs and a smattering of smooths as Az summarises the community’s fortunes in Gameweek 10.

The trio’s transfer and captain plans are also unveiled as we prepare for the penultimate Gameweek before the November international break.

    Just been playing with Abraham to Rashford and Maddison to Pérez

    Jeeze!

    I need to log out now.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      If Perez keeps his position in the 11, he's decent option tbh 🙂

      1. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Needs some consistency now

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 6 days ago

          Yep
          Can be a season defining bargain if keeps his position in the team IMO

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Hell no. Unless tammy blanks another 3 games in a row maybe then look to move him on but unlikely to happen.

      I would to Maddi to Perez though 😉

      1. Whats the Huth
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Would you do Maddison to Tielemans and Mane to Salah

    3. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      A prospective supertroll must be Perez!

        • 8 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year

      1. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        yeah planning to address that after next 2 games

    Sale value of my team on 101.8m?

    Is that any good?

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Very good

    2. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Doesn't matter much, so much value everywhere this season

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Just thinking oabout next WC 🙂

    4. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years

      Same here

    5. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years

      Its a bit unbelievable actually. Mine is 100.7, 101.8 is nuts.

      1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Ahh I also have 1.1 ITB. Sorry, forgot to factor that in, my bad

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

      Mines 102.9

      1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Are you sure thats not your team value? 102.9 is your selling value??

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          8 months, 6 days ago

          My TV is 103.5m

          1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 6 days ago

            yeah mine is 103.7

            1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
              • 2 Years
              8 months, 6 days ago

              103.8* actually

        2. camarozz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          101.3m sv. And iv nothing in the bank.

      2. Abra Dubravka
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Squad value or sell value? My squad value is £103.2, but sell value is only £101.4m. £101.8m is very good

      3. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        TV????

    7. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Yeh that’s v good

      I have
      SV 101.5
      TV 103.2

    8. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      TV = 103.4
      SV = 101.5

    9. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      101.4 (103)

    10. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      101.6

    11. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Is there a quick place to get sell on value total or do you just need to manually add it up? My TV is 104.9, curious to see what that translates to in SV.

    12. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Mines 102.3

      1. Freddiebell
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        TV 104.4

  4. BNMC
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Arsenal may be playing badly but should we be looking past their fixtures? They soon play Saints and Norwich who both can't defend.

  5. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Cannot believe Wilson dropped. He was - 92% when I went to bed. Half the world must have pulled him out through out the night. Unless the FPL stats formula is wide of the mark

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      92% is dropping territory

    2. Abra Dubravka
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Depends on the rate of drop as well. -92% can easily drop if you check at say 10pm and it's dropping fast

    3. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      You were surprised he dropped after -92%??

      FPL stats is not 100% accurate, and anything 90+ means a drop is possible, doesn't take half the world's transfers for it

    4. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Fair enough. Learning for me then!

  6. THFC4LIFE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    The more I look at Digne in my team the more I hate him, but I’ll probably keep him this week and play him over Soyuncu

    1. Flog the trog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      He’s the player I’ve been most glad I avoided. Seriously considered him at the start of the season.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      8 months, 6 days ago

      See post below lol

  7. FOO FIGHTER
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Yeah good idea. Get rid of Dinge with an FT though.

    GW14 to 18 LEI (A), LIV (A), CHE (H), UTD (A), ARS (H).

    Like the scariest horror you will ever see in your life 😮

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Fail!

    2. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Ye I’m undecided with my moves, possibly Wilson to Rashford if confirmed fit or could do Digne to Rico to free up funds or even save lol

      Basically I’ve no clue

  8. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Auba or Kane to replace aguero next week ? Thanks

    1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Both not great. Just get Vardy, Tammy, Rashford, Jimi, or Maupay. And use the rest to upgrade elsewhere.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Go cheap & upgrade Midfield ?

    3. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I'm going Kane today. Have a feeling he's going to go on a mini run. Will. Leave me with Vardy, Tammy and Kane

    4. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Unfortunately premium forwards don’t provide value (points/GBP) and, therefore, make little sense in FPL. Hope FPL fixes this soon but until then ...

  9. Bug
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Hi Folks, any ideas on below bunch will be appreciated. 2 FT, 0.4 ITB

    Pope
    TAA, Tomori, Soy, Lund, Rico
    Salah, Debryune, Sterling, Mount, Dendocker
    Abraham, Jiminez, Pukki

    Thanks in advance

    1. Indpush
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Burn a transfer or sell Pukki

  10. Dream Killers 2.0
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Morning,

    I have 2 free transfers and struggling to see where to use them. Might just save them. Any advice? 0.1m in bank.

    Roberto
    TAA, Tomori, Lundstram, Soy
    Sterling, KDB, Mount
    Vardy, Auba, Abraham

    Bench - Gazzaniga, McGinn, Cantwell, Rico

    1. BNMC
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I'd be looking to work in a LIV attacker. Auba -> Connolly/Ayew and McGinn -> Salah/Mane

  11. JJO
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Best defender to buy right now?
    (Not City or Liv)

    1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Chilwell

      1. JJO
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Would you double with Soy?

        1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          Probably not. Considered Alonso? Looks nailed, hes played very well.

          1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 6 days ago

            If looking for cheaper, Lascelles is a good shout, NEW have good fixtures.

            1. JJO
              • 7 Years
              8 months, 6 days ago

              Those are 2 picks i was looking for
              Thanks man

    2. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Soy, Lund

      1. JJO
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        No one better?
        I have Soy,Lund and Rico

        1. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          You didn't make it clear!

          Stick with template then. Don't over think it. More fires burning in your front 8 surely

          1. JJO
            • 7 Years
            8 months, 6 days ago

            Ill make it clearer next time 🙂
            I have Boly to replace,my front 8 is ok
            I just thought someone will have some less template idea tgen those 3 defenders,so i could think about ut

    3. Lingard’s Shin Guards
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Chilwell, Soy, Lund

      1. JJO
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Will be more specific next time 🙂
        I have Soy,Lund and Rico
        Double Lei def?

        1. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          Nah. Double is not necessary IMO

        2. Lingard’s Shin Guards
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 6 days ago

          Nah don’t double up

    4. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Tomori decent shout too

      1. JJO
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah thats maybe the most rational pick
        Thanks for you replies man 🙂

        1. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          No worries bud

  12. citizenkane
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 6 days ago

    2FT, 0.1 ITB

    Pope
    Robertson Lundstram Ota
    Salah Sterling KDB Mount
    Pukki Haller Abraham

    Button Rico Dendoncker Hanley

    I really want Haller out, not passing the eye test at all for me. Would you do Pukki & Haller > Vardy & Connolly? Want to squeeze in Vardy but would leave me terribly imbalanced. Or any other ideas?

    1. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      That's what did. Brought in Vardy4and Connolly

      1. citizenkane
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Cheers, looks like I'll be doing the same

  13. Bobby Digital
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Is Adama nailed? Which position is he playing?

    1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Dont think anyone is nailed in that team except Jimi and Rui

      1. JJO
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Can play in few positions but with Jota back he eint play every game

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          Ok, cheers.

      2. Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Traore could be an exciting player to own, cheap too.

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Who knows, who knows? Sorry not to be more helpful.

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        No worries.

    3. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Played 90 minutes in 4 of the last 5 games (86 minutes in the other) and played 90 minutes in 5 of the last 7. Looks like a decent 5th midfield option for now until that changes.

  14. stu92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Ryan
    Robbo - VVD - Tomori - Chilwell
    Salah - KDB - Maddison
    Pukki - Abraham - Vardy
    (Button - Lundstram - McGinn - Cantwell)

    A) Who should I captain?
    B) Bench ok? Want to play Lunds but not sure at who’s expense.

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      A) KDB or Salah
      B) Bench is ok

    2. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      A) My heart is saying captain Mane but my head is saying KDB. I'm on KDB at the moment because he's at home.

      B) Lundstram for Tomori

  15. niloh1
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    hey guys, just want to know if its worth a hit to do auba & mcginn to sterling & 5m forward?

    pope mcgovern
    taa soy rico tomori lunstram
    kdb mane mount mcginn dedonker
    vardy abraham auba

    1. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Don’t think it’s worth a hit, you’ve got a decent enough team for this week as it is.

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      If you think man city will score 4 or 5 goals yes

    3. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      If Sterling starts and you captain him then probably worth the hit.

  16. Gunner Boy
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    G2G ?

    Gazzaniga
    Lundstram Tomori Soyuncu Mendy
    KDB (vc) Pepe Salah
    Wilson Aguero (c) Abraham

    subs: Button Saka Rico Cantwell

    moves for next GW: Pepe + Wilson > Martial + Vardy (-4)

  17. Longlatini
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Bit of bench headache this week

    Which two to play from
    Lundstram
    Söyüncü
    Tomori
    Ayew???

    1. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Tough but bench Tomori and Soyuncu.

      1. Longlatini
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks that’s what I’m on at moment

  18. cuppatea78
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Over the next two weeks I'm thinking of getting rid of Cantwell and Pukki and bringing in Martial and Connelly.

    Should I do the Pukki to Connelly transfer this week or save the transfer until next week and do both at the same time? Basically it's either stick with Pukki this week against Brighton or go with Connelly this week against Norwich

    I'll have Connelly start this week but from next week he will more than likely be a sub as I'd have a strong 5 man midfield (KDB, Mane, Mount, Martial, Sterling)

    1. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I did that move on monday

  19. Firmino
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Who is the best 4.4 defender?

    1. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I thought Lundy & Rico were in every team already?

      Rico or maybe Janmaat as a punt

    Any major surgery needed here?

    Pope Heaton
    Virgil Digne Tomori Lund Gibson
    Salah kdb Mount Tielemans McGinn
    Auba Jimmy King

    No sterling scares me a lot this week and after missing out on Vardy + defender I went from 50k to 140k so trying to avoid 2 poor weeks (aren’t we all)

    Do I just stick and roll transfer? Also have WC intact

    Your suggestions most appreciated, cheers

      Even 140k says you’re doing something right to me! Don’t like Digne personally this season, and Sterling is still a bit hit and miss this season.

        Yep agree on Digne, had him from the start and haven’t been able to ship him yet without taking a hit. Who would you ship him out for based on 6+ fixtures?

        Vs Saints it has the makings of a big sterling score but stranger things have happened, cheers

          I got rid of Digne for Otamendi a few weeks ago but that didn’t work out as expected, just shifted him for Chilwell this week. Think Leicester have a good run coming up, added assist potential and a few quid cheaper than Digne.

      You should be giving me advice after my average start but stick and potentially do Auba & King to Vardy & Tammy next week for free.

        Both loving Abraham and purposely didn’t want to jump on the bandwagon-he’s now the most owned player!
        Potentially Vardy and Rashford for those 2

        Damn autocorrect meant to read don’t love Abraham pick

    Play Digne (Spurs H) or Yedlin (West Ham A)
