Scoutcast crew tackles how to plan for gruelling winter period

The Scoutcast returns tonight in the build-up to Gameweek 13, starting at 20:00 GMT on our YouTube channel.

As the international draws to a close we are looking ahead to the next round of action as well as the upcoming winter schedule.

Between now and the end of the calendar there will be eight Gameweeks so it’s important to get our planning just right.

In episode 308, Joe will be joined by Tom Freeman and Holly Shand.

Between the three of them, they boast a total of 17 finishes inside the top 10k, so we’re expecting some excellent insight.

As well as discussing the frantic festive period, Mason Mount (£6.8m) comes under scrutiny in light of Christian Pulisic’s (£7.4m) recent form and the mid-price Leicester options.

Meanwhile, many Fantasy managers are contemplating how to invest in Liverpool over the coming weeks with the age-old debate about double-defence or double-attack the focus of discussion tonight.

    Pukki party has begun, in fine form again

      Am about to remove him for a hit this week to get Vardy in.

      The Finns will have partied like, well Finns, after qualifying for the Euros for the first time. He won't sober up before GW14.

      He and Norwich were so woeful against WAT (what a contrast to MCI game) that I was embarrassed to have held all this time

    Buy buy Pocetino. Omg. End of an era .

    1. Daniel - KTBFFH

      Eriksen becomes an option again

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Eriksen's problem wasn't Pochettino so not so sure he becomes an option again.

        1. Daniel - KTBFFH
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          He wanted out Pocetino was punishing and not playing him.

          Perfect opportunity for him to show his worth. He will be most motivated from the whole squad to do great

    Thoughts on Digne (NOR) as this week punt? 2FT no other pressing ...

      With the Pukki party starting back up, I’m not so sure...

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I have missed this ... Pukki partying?

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Gone bald and has scored 3 in 2 games.

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Ok not with Norwich then

    2. Daniel - KTBFFH
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      The other CB what was his name is better one week punt imo

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Mina?

    So Pochettino sacked by Spurs....
    Arsene Wenger is avaliable, just saying... 😉

    1. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Wonder what odds on Emery outlasting the next Spurs manager too.

    1. Trophé Mourinho
        2 months, 10 days ago

        lol fox sports..
        in that video it does actually look like Bobby says come to Liverpool but Son laughs and says no 😀

      • Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        More likely to go to Poch's next club or Real Madrid.

    2. EL tridente
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Salah to Mane for -4?

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 10 days ago

        What's your main driver to swap especially with a hit?

      2. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        If Salah is injured, yes.

      Playing WC this week which combination seems better

      Gazza button
      Lund Soy Rico Robo xxxxx
      Mane kdb xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx
      Vardy Tammy xxxx

      A) Double liverpool Def : TAA + Martial + Perez + mount + ayew
      B) Double liverpool Attack : C. Taylor + Salah + tielemans + Hayden + Ayew
      C) Balanced: Cahill + Martial + tielemans + mount + Jimenez

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 10 days ago

        C with Willems

    4. Tmel
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Pope
      Lund TAA Digne
      Sterling KDB Mount Martial
      Vardy Jimenez Abraham
      (4.0 Soy Rico Dendoncker)

      0.1ITB & 1FT. Holding Digne for NOR this week but will likely shift for Tomori after that (possibly then Mount > Pulisic with the funds).

      a) Sterling > Mane
      b) Mount > Tielemans
      c) Save FT

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        2 months, 10 days ago

        Personally I’d keep Sterling for this week and do A next week mate, there should be goals in City Vs Chelsea I’m happy to own Sterling KDB Pulisic and Abraham for that game!! Haha that being said cue the nil nil draw!!!

      2. A-L

        Save FT, as this article is rightfully reminding us to prepare for the winter storms ahead

    5. teneighty

      Sterling + Maupay -> (K)ane + Tielemans

      Need to spice things up!

      1. Gentle_Turks
        • 2 Years

        Kane no. Fluid situation at Spurs...

    6. THFC4LIFE

      Who the hell is gonna replace him??!! Levy is a complete twat

      1. Trophé Mourinho
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Allegri, it will work out for the better dont worry

        • No Professionals
          • 2 Years

          Someone else who won't win anything

        • Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          The Special one seems to be the favourite.

          Will make interesting viewing with Kane moving from CDM to CB.

          1. Daniel - KTBFFH
            • 10 Years

        Might spunk my free hit, get the likes of Kane, Son, Richar et al.

        1. Gentle_Turks
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Surely better to avoid, for now?

          1. Make America Greta Again
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Boredom a factor, depends on Salah fitness and already on a -4.

        2. Revival
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

            Doesn't matter who wins, just that Kane etc score.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

        If Salah inj & Robbo fit, thoughts on this?

        GW13 Salah,Ota > Son,Robbo(-4)
        GW14 KDB > Mane

        1. Revival
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Looks good given you losing 2 players who won't feature in GW13

          1. Gentle_Turks
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Salah might feature.

        2. Gentle_Turks
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          On paper good.... But think better to avoid Spurs for now.

        Is there an imprisoned right back and central midfielder about to be set free that I dont know about?

            Or is there a manager swap with Real and Bale comes with Zizou?
