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!

    Thoughts on going Alli over Son or is it just trying to be too clever for the sake of it?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1 month, 22 days ago

      Son is better. Always is.

      1. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        probably right. Think Son will probably cause murders against Bournemouth. Alli looked dangerous tho!

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      What i'm pondering too

    3. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Could be genius, probably egg on face.

    4. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I think Alli might be the one to get.

    5. Ibra
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I think Alli is a great differential if you are chasing.

      1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Chasing what though? Loads of people don't have Son.

    6. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      On recent showing of his two games since Jose took over he has been great. I think he is now genuinely a good option and don’t think it’s being too clever. BUT I still believe Son is the better option.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Clearly the teams confidence has improved this week BUT the opposition has been west ham and Olympiacos hardly the greatest of tests
        If you have the money then Son makes the most sense but also important to have some differential picks

    7. Pat Butcher
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I can't decide

    8. Trophé Mourinho
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I will get Alli, mainly becase I cant afford Son and well thats just how I am. Probably Kane aslo

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        1 month, 22 days ago

        but what abot Eriksen? 😀

    9. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Alli looked very good again, and potentially a bargain at 8.4. Son and Kane also look good options. Aurier due a sending off so won't go for that.

      1. SweepaKeepa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        When you compare to the Chelsea and Leicester mids, I think he’s higher risk for higher price.

    10. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Thinking about both

  2. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Selfish Son

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Good for fpl

  3. Woy_is_back
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Lundstram to Aurier, Done

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      No chance

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      But Spurs arent keeping cleanies just yet. Expecting Aurier to score/assist every game?

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      TAA > Aurier even better

  4. Ibra
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Why aren't people getting Jesus in? Aguero is injured so he'll probably start all the games since Kun is back.

    1. jesus jesus
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Cos Pep says he can play Jesus or Sterling up top !!!

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      City not in best form
      can't justify ousting players in form for him with the likes of Vardy, Jiminez etc
      can't even score penalties.

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Most people are happy with their strikers and if they arent it takes two transfers to get Jesus in.

    4. boredjames
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      he isnt that great

    5. Dannyb
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Coz hes awful?

      1. Ibra
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Awful striker who has started 4 Premier League games this season and has scored 3+1 in those games.

        1. DNML
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Yes he is. I would score more in that shiti team.

    6. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Would prefer Firmino at that price

  5. Dee Lixon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Spurs fever!

    Sterling and Mount to:
    1. Son and Alli
    2. Kane and 6.0 (Grealish?)
    3. Go and have a lie down...

    Thanks!

    1. Daniel - KTBFFH

    2. Peter Ouch

      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Son and bot ali or Kane
      Dont get to excited mate

    3. Woy_is_back
      • 2 Years

      3

    4. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Son is enough cover for the time being imo.

      1. Dee Lixon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Voices of reason. Cheers!

  6. Peter Ouch

    So how did Sterling do tonight?

    1. Daniel - KTBFFH
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Anonymous I guess

      1. fr3d
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        2G 2A at the weekend confirmed

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I didn't watch the game but my best guess is a big fat nothing 🙂

  7. Daniel - KTBFFH
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Spurs are back

  8. Rinseboy
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Sod it I'm doing KDB to Son.

    1. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      thinking of doing the same.

      1. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        most saying KDB a season keeper but I havnt got any value tied up in KDB so happy to get him back later if needed

        1. Zico Senna
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          neither have i, bought him back at 10.0m, not only that, it's so confusing each week, one minute he's deep, the next it looks like he may attack more, then back to being the assister of the assister. Son much more direct imo.

      2. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        or Alli! ha

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Will probably do it as well.

    3. Carlos3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Planning the same

  9. Wag the Drog
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    KDB out before 60'? Just a tactical sub?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      No injury reported.

      1. Woy_is_back
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        For real?

        1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          I think you might have saw what I wrote as "No, injury reported".

          It looks like he was just taken off to rest him because they didn't really need to win..

          1. Woy_is_back
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            Ok haha. Yeah saw it interpreted it as injury reported

    2. Woy_is_back
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Injured?

  10. Woy_is_back
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Maddison or Pulisic for KDB
    or
    KDB Mount to Maddy Pulisic

    1. Only a Hazard of time
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Second one looks good if you've got 2 FT.

      1. Woy_is_back
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Yeah two free trannys. Just waiting on KDB injury news

  11. Only a Hazard of time
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Sterling to Mane, I'm back on the Holy Scouse trio of Salah, Mane and Robertson. I've been less involved in the 'meta' side of FPL this season due to work, will we get the usual 'massively depleted GW due to FA Cup games' this season? Just for FH planning.

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Yeah.

  12. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Hmm. Best way to tap spurs fever?
    A. Kdb to Son
    B. Martial to Alli/Moura
    C. Soyuncu/Rico to Aurier
    D. A hit to do Martial to Son.

    Will most likely wait for now - planning ahead.

    1. Dee Lixon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      B with Alli

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Leaning that way. Not sure I owned even when he was in his former glory

  13. Trophé Mourinho
    1 month, 22 days ago

    How bad are peoples teams if you transferring in double spurs lol
    I dont really have any candidates to take out

    1. Wag the Drog
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I can afford to switch Martial to Son

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        1 month, 22 days ago

        ditching him a bit soon no?

        1. Wag the Drog
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Going to wait 1 more week

    2. FISSH
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I dont want to sell anyone for Son tbh. So i understand. Have Sterling and KDB you cant sell them away to Newcastle

    3. camarozz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Did Auba to Kane last wk.

  14. lilmessipran
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Wait, why did KDB get subbed off early? Injury?

    1. mdm
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Seems so...

      1. Brehmeren
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        No it doesn't.

    2. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      No

    3. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      No but he seemed tired.

  15. Dare Do The Punt
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Who do we think will become the best value asset for Spurs now?

    A) Son

    B) Alli

    C) Lucas

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      1 month, 22 days ago

      probably Alli, but Alli's goals have been lucky imo so I wouldnt read to much into that. Looking like he will be assisting alot more than scoring. Alli and Kane combo will be nice

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Defintely Son for me

    3. Carlos3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I see Son as the safest bet of the 3.. My pick atm.
      Would like to see some consistent returns from Alli before switching.
      Kane has big potential though

    4. Rinseboy
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      B best value bit Son top.points in Dec

  16. Giggs Boson.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    RMWCT

    Henderson
    Aurier - Lundstram - Söyüncü
    Mane - Son - Martial - Pulisic
    Kane - Vardy - Abraham

    Button - Tomori - Cahill - Dendoncker

    +0.7m

    1. Wag the Drog
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I'd want more than 1 Liverpool player on a wildcard.

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Robbo/TAA?
      Probably downgrade kane to rashford /jiminez or even punt on jesus

    3. Giggs Boson.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Thanks both. I'll look at getting another Pool. Maybe at the cost of Martial.

      1. FeverPitch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Martial out and Liverpool fullback in looks great imo

    4. FISSH
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      no city? you crazy.

  17. leo_messi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Lowton -> Aurier with 0.3 ITB..This is a sign right? 🙂

  18. Fudgy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 22 days ago

    People saying Alli over Son are only saying it because they can't afford Son

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      1 month, 22 days ago

      a lil bit, but at the same time I know in 3 weeks all the son owners will wish they had alli 😉

    2. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      They're saying it because he scored recently and Son didn't. That's how it goes.

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        1 month, 22 days ago

        naw, Allis goals have been lucky, just watch how Alli is playing. Going to be an assist machine

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Theres been a while since Ive been able to do the old "X casuals just have him because they cant afford Y...."

      Cant wait until Alli scores against BOU

      1. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I can't wait for Son to score 14 more goals this season. Alli will probably bag half of that.

  19. GE
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    1) Auba -> Kane
    2) Auba -> Jimenez
    3) Save
    4) Other suggestions

    (1FT, 0.0 itb)

    Pope
    TAA/Soy/Tomori
    Mane/KDB/Mount/Tielemans
    Auba/Vardy/Abraham

    Bench: Button, Lundstram, Rico, Dendoncker

    1. Riverside Red
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 22 days ago

      2

    2. Carlos3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 22 days ago

      1 - have high hopes for Kane for next period

    3. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I just did 1.

  20. FPL_Cot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Who to captain:
    Vardy (EVE)
    Abraham (WHU)
    Mane (BHA)
    Son (BOU)

    Thinking Vardy is safest but Abraham/Son could score big this GW.

    1. Ibra
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Vardy for me

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Vardy, he'll definitely wanna keep this run going, and well know he can.

      1. Zico Senna
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        and we all know he can*

    3. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Abraham is playing the weakest opposition but he doesn't tend to do very well at home. Mane is a very good option but only 2 day gap after Napoli game could be a slight issue for Liverpool. I'm not as convinced with Son under Mourinho as I was with him in Poch's team.

      So for me, it will probably be Vardy, but of course any of those can score big and none of them are bad options.

    4. Dannyb
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Vardy for sure

    5. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Vardy - it's EVERTON.

  21. Ibra
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Too many options. I can't decide.

    A) Sterling + Jota -> Salah + Ings
    B) Sterling + Jota -> Alli + Jesus
    C) Sterling + Jota -> Son + Jimenez
    D) KDB + Jota -> Son + Ings
    E) KDB + Jota -> Alli + Jimenez

    1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…

      Yes!

    2. FeverPitch

      Just feel like i'm going to lumped with Martial and a stinky run

    6. FeverPitch

      Martial

  26. Man Chest Hair United

    Best option here

    Kane and Dendonker
    Son and Mousett -4

    Both mousett and Dendonker would be 8th attacker

    Hmmm. Wanted to ask a question which was not about transferring in Spurs players but clearly now is not the right time - I'll come back tomorrow!

        Prefer Dier

    Aurier is good going forward and that strike was sick but he cant defend to save his life. We have to play Sissoko to cover Aurier...
    somethings got to give

    Current Team:
    Pope
    TAA, Soyu, Tomori
    KDB, Mané, Mount, Tielemans
    Kane, Abraham, Vardy

    Bench: McGovern, Guilbert, Rico, Hayden

    2FT 0.0 ITB

    Which moves do you recommend?

    I know I'm missing Lundstarm but the fact that he's on 4 YC doesn't attract him...

  30. Marc Jobling

    Mane, Sterling, Mount, Cantwell
    Vardy, Abraham, Jimenez

    4.3m ITB

    The plan all along has been to FINALLY go Martial for Cantwell. Would you do:

    A) Martial for Cantwell
    B) Get in Son or Kane?

      sterling to Son looks best
