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

    1. Revival

      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

    F me! Is that Benteke on the score sheet?!

    Buy buy Pocetino. Omg. End of an era .

    1. Daniel - KTBFFH
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      Eriksen becomes an option again

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 5 hours ago

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

        1. Daniel - KTBFFH
          • 10 Years
          25 days, 5 hours 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 ...

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 5 hours ago

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

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 5 hours ago

        I have missed this ... Pukki partying?

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 5 hours ago

          Gone bald and has scored 3 in 2 games.

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            25 days, 5 hours ago

            Ok not with Norwich then

    2. Daniel - KTBFFH
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 5 hours ago

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

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 5 hours ago

        Mina?

    3. Brainsey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      I’m captaining. Maybe

  5. el polako

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

    1. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      25 days, 5 hours ago

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

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      25 days, 5 hours ago

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

    2. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 5 hours ago

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

  6. EL tridente
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 5 hours ago

    Salah to Mane for -4?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 5 hours ago

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

    2. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      If Salah is injured, yes.

  7. pol

    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
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      C with Willems

  8. Tmel
    • 8 Years
    25 days, 5 hours 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 Years
      25 days, 5 hours 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
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 5 hours ago

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

  9. teneighty

    25 days, 5 hours ago

    Sterling + Maupay -> (K)ane + Tielemans

    Need to spice things up!

    1. Gentle_Turks
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      Kane no. Fluid situation at Spurs...

  10. THFC4LIFE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      Allegri, it will work out for the better dont worry

    2. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      Someone else who won't win anything

    3. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 5 hours 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
        25 days, 5 hours ago

        Jose will be fun

    4. Limbo

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Yes.

      1. No Professionals

        Ha

    2. Daniel - KTBFFH

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      For whom? My strikers line up is awesome 😀

  12. Make America Greta Again
    • 5 Years
    25 days, 5 hours ago

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

    1. Gentle_Turks
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      Surely better to avoid, for now?

      1. Make America Greta Again
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 5 hours ago

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

    2. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      West Ham will beat managerless Spurs for sure now

      1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

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

  13. Lfcni1986
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Mourhino odds on, spurs defensive block could be option

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      Aurier essential.

      1. Daniel - KTBFFH
        • 10 Years
        25 days, 5 hours ago

        Aurier to explode?

        1. Lfcni1986
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          25 days, 5 hours ago

          I reckon mourhino would hate aurier

  14. manu4life99

    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
      25 days, 5 hours ago

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

      1. Gentle_Turks
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 5 hours ago

        Salah might feature.

    2. Gentle_Turks
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 5 hours ago

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

    Why is everyone thinking spurs will suddenly be good?

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

    Players winding down their contracts wont suddenly up their game.
