Scoutcast crew discuss FPL stubbornness and Spurs assets

The Scoutcast crew have a busy evening of Fantasy Premier League discussion ahead of them.

Join Joe, Az and Lee from 20:00 GMT to 21:00 GMT for episode 309 on our YouTube channel.

While Spurs and Manchester City play their latest Champions League matches, our panel of pundits will be focussing on these two teams in particular.

The arrival of Jose Mourinho in north London has the potential to unlock several Fantasy assets while Sergio Aguero’s (£11.9m) injury could see Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) get a run of starts.

Meanwhile, our talking point revolves around the concept of stubbornness in FPL.

How long is too long to wait for a player to become good? At what point do you recognise that the in-form option you don’t own won’t stop scoring?

Tune in shortly to find out!

    KANEEEEE

    Olympiakos are crap though. Bournemouth will put up more of a fight than them.

    1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Clearly not watching if you think they haven't put up a fight

      1. diesel001

        1 month, 27 days ago

        Their defending is atrocious. They fell apart after the first Spurs goal.

        1. mynameisq
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Did Bournemouth transfer in peak baresi and maldini for Steve cook or something?

        Was thinking same.. they have been class..

    Kane looking hungry. Hatty incoming

    Fantasy CL is just cruel. Getting destroyed every week when you don't (C) the guy with the hat trick.

  6. LOLarov
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Hmmmm

    Kane, Son and Aurier looking sharpe! As is Alli

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Indeed. Hard to pick the right one. No room for Kane here - might need to be Alli

    2. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Got Son & Aurier atm. Triple up seems too much

    3. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Happy with Son. Potentially Aurier next week

  7. Ógie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    How long more will Aurier remain a differential for. 🙁

    1. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Might get in on a -4.

    2. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      At that 4.8m not too long

    3. andy85wsm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Not even sure where to fit him in with TAA, Soy, Tomori and Lundstram!

      1. boredjames
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        exactly

      2. Ógie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Do you have the gumption to go without TAA?

        1. andy85wsm
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Probably not 🙂

          With their fixtures I think I'll probably just have other transfers to make that take higher priority next 4 GWs

          1. Ógie
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Not much differential fun in forward and mid line at the moment.

            At least you can still have a bit of fun in defense.

  8. Mr. Wizard
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Sterling -> Salah or Son?
    (Already have Mane & KDB)

    1. Phlajo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I'm in exact same situation, and leaning towards Salah.

      Might end up with Sterling for another week though

    2. danlynch13
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I’m the same the blank 18 is making me think son which also allows me to do Mount > Pulisic

      1. Mr. Wizard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I’m going to wait until L’pool game tomorrow - see how Salah does. Don’t think Sterling will fall just yet

    3. Captain Beefheart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Am keeping Sterling this week he is overdue

  9. Rashford FC
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Aurier got some attacking returns in him. Problem is clean sheets

    1. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      TAA and Robbo say Hi!

      Attacking full backs, what's not to like.

  10. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Aurier Alli Kane needed

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      But everyone bought Son 🙂

      1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Decent pick just think under mourinho if he's wide he is also needing tracking back alot

        Alli seems more involved for me. Son a decent pick

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          This

      2. teneighty
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I punted on Kane. Was hoping he would get his centre forward priviledges back.

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Weekend normal service restored Son will be the one 😉

  11. MaticMVP
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 27 days ago

    City been poor, played at a snails pace until Shakhtar scored.

    1. Phlajo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Sterling invisible again? Can't watch the game myself 🙁

  12. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Alli subbed

    Ndombele on

  13. royals forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Pick 2 to play from

    Lundstram (wol)
    Cahill (bur)
    Dendoncker (SHU)

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Garth Marenghi
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Ab

  14. Infamy, Infamy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Bemba_Da: games last 90 minutes mate. You might want to stop slagging teams off after 20 minutes.

  15. Revival
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Auba to Kane is tempting

    1. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Pull that trigger ASAP

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      confirm the transfer, and then re-confirm it.

    3. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      After Norwich!

  16. Athletic Nasherbo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Atleast my -8 will get more positive responses tonight after this Spurs win!

    1. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      what was the -8? 🙂

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        You’ve commented before on it-

        TAA, Mount, Sterling, Deulofeu > Pereira, Moura, Pulisic, Kane(C) -8

        1. Zico Senna
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          oh damn of course, totatlly forgot there fora sec haha!

          1. Athletic Nasherbo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            No worries thoughts?

  17. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Alli being constantly subbed may get annoying. Maybe just because he is building up fitness?

    1. andy85wsm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Potentially, although played 90 mins, 3 games in a row just recently

      has to be the largest brag i have ever seen.

      1. LOLarov

    2. Sharkytect

      • 5 Years

      I've played 13!

      Came 408th in 2017.

      ...won't mention the other ranks!

      1. LOLarov
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Top 500 is very solid work!!

    3. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      if you're not first you're last

    4. Ógie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      This is my 13 season playing fpl and there are many hanging around here that were playing from the start.

      1. teneighty
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        When did it start?

        1. Ógie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          I think there is only records from the 06/07 season on but it actually started 3 seasons before that and the records somehow got lost and have become the dead sea scrolls of fpl.

          Pity really as i won fpl 3 years in a row before i took a year out. 😛

    5. Athletic Nasherbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Jesus this was a subtle brag.

      1. Zico Senna
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Biggest brag about luck lol, makes him feel special.

      No, mine is bigger than that by at least an inch.

      1. LOLarov
        • 10 Years

        7 Top 10s and a top 250.... Welcome

        1. Fred54
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          In the St Kitts and Nevis league...

  19. Dannyb
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Maddison/Martial to Moura? Or hold and do it next week?

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Hold.

  20. Shark Team
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Aurier owners I know he gave us too much points lately but I think the Bou(H) game is gonna be the last one for him in my team

    1. lindeg
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      just brought him in last round, think hes a bargain at 4.8, so much attacking potential, and mou will surely fix the defense

      1. Shark Team
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Max 2 cs in the next 5 so he doesn't worth imo

        1. lindeg
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 27 days ago

          thats pretty good for a 4.8 defender mate

        2. leo_messi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          you dont have to play him every week if you have soy taa lund as well 🙂

  21. wolves_simmo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Worth a -4?

    Out: Sterling & McGinn
    In: Maddison & Son

    1. Feanor
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Could be.

      I did Sterling -> Son as my one FT.

  22. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅

      End to end game.

  23. dark91

    PSG scores 2 to make it 2-2

  24. The Mighty Hippo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    A). Martial - - > Pulisic (free transfer)
    B) Maddison - - > Pulisic (free transfer)
    C). Do nothing and roll the transfer

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Pulisic is great but any other than those two to make away?

      1. The Mighty Hippo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        No, the only other options in midfield are Son and Mane and I certainly don't want to move them.

        The only other alternative would be to go two upfront and lose one of VAJ, which again isn't ideal.

    2. Garth Marenghi
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      A for me

  25. Simply Loveleh

    Soyunchu and kane or robbo and alli

    1. MaticMVP

      Robbo and Alli

  26. GARY AND JAMIE

    1. Zladan
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Aurier Son Eriksen

      1. Zladan
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Moura got one too.

        1. Giggs Boson.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Thanks Zladan.

          On a WC, so trying to decide which Spurs players to get. Aurier in for sure, just unsure about the others.

          1. Zladan
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I’d go in this order

            1. Son
            2. Aurier
            3. Kane
            4. Gazzanigga
            5. Moura
            6. Alli
            7. Eriksen
