Scoutcast Episode 318 – Double Gameweek fever

It’s finally here. After weeks of waiting and planning Liverpool’s double Gameweek 24 has arrived.

Ahead of today’s deadline Joe, Pranil (aka Lateriser12) and Az take a look at the best options among Klopp’s troops and who is most deserving of the armband. The triple captaincy chip, the Red’s resilient recent defence and array of attacking options feature prominently in their discussion.

Fresh from his Meet the Manager appearance and rank busting Aguero transfer earlier this month Pranil is once again on top form.

Going above and beyond the Scoutcast cause he leaves Joe and Az stunned after unleashing his eye-test analysis of Liverpool’s recent games and who is most likely to receive his Triple Captaincy backing as a result.

West Ham’s double fixture in Gameweek 24 is not forgotten, with Joe taking his turn to silence his fellow Scoutcasters with news of his planned and unlikely Hammers punt. Naturally he has the dullard statistics to back up this maverick move.

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford’s long-term injury means there are plenty of community questions to consider regarding alternative striking options.

Rough with the Smooth, clean sheets and Pranil’s turn to pick a differential are also included in this packed double Gameweek special episode.

The crew round off proceedings to reveal their transfer and captaincy decisions.

      Think its time to use the TC chip mate.

      6 day in between games so everyone should be recovered well enough for the 2nd game.

      TC Salah 🙂

    Salah / Mane(TC) / KDB
    Aguero / Ings / DCL

    Ryan / Traore / Fleck / Lund

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I’m ultra torn too. On salah atm

      1. Monkey magic 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Yeah it’s such a tough choice, get it right and it’s all gravy get it wrong and you’re screwed!

  6. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Play ings or traore?

    1. ResultatFar
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Play Ings of course. Either he starts or gets a rest and Traore can come in as autosub

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Well that's nonsense, last time he was benched he came on for last 20 minutes or so

    2. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      really? Ings

  7. SHOOTER MCGINN
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Seems fairly likely Rico will be dropped if Kelly is anywhere near fit enough.

    Take a -4 for a decent defender up to 6m or play Lundstram?

  8. simong1
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 5 days ago

    2 FT, any suggestions here please? 0 ITB. Thanks guys.

    Pope
    TAA (TC), Gomez, Soy
    Mane, Ali, Martial, KDB
    Vardy, Ings, Maupay

    Maddison, Kelly, Lundstram

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Can you afford Ali Gomez to Lucas Robbo ?

  9. FPL-(VAR)dy
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Robertson
    or
    Firmino+4

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Rob

    2. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Firmino if you meant plus four

      1. FPL-(VAR)dy
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        yes wud have to do -4 to get Robbo in

    3. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      the +4 is the difference either way

  10. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Who scores more?

    A) Aguero (tot, WHU)
    B) Auba (bur, NEW)

    1. FPL-(VAR)dy
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Agueroooo

    2. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Aguero

    3. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      aguero

    4. tomasjj

      Aguero, IF he starts both games.

    5. Bobby_Baggio

      Kun

  11. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Thoughts on team selection?

    Undecided who to C or TC?

    McCarthy
    Trent, Robbo, Holgate,
    Salah, KDB, Maddison, Martial
    Vardy, Ings, Jimmy

    Martin, Traore, Soy, Lundstram

    1.7 bank.

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I would play soy over jiminez

      Salah tc

      1. ResultatFar
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I would not. Jimmy has to play every week - look at how good he is against the best teams in the league

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Him & Traore going to keep Virgil etc busy.

      2. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I can see Traore ripping up the wing & Jimmy on the end of it 🙂

      3. tomasjj
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Nah - play Jimi. Striker on pens.

  12. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Best option to complete this attack? Budget 5.9m

    Salah mane grealish dendo xxxxx
    Kun Vardy ings

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Doucoure or Fleck if you can hold out for a game or two

    2. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Someone cheap

  13. fylde2022
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Am I GTG?

    Ryan
    TAA(Cx3) Holgate Soyuncu
    KDB Salah Fleck Mane
    Vardy DCL Ings

    Button Kelly Lundstram Traore

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      You are, but any Salah/Mané return will lower your rank.

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Liking the TC Trent, could be genius.

    3. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      If traore scores you will be in a world of pain!

  14. dansmusen
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Would you get Son for a hit (Dilva out) ?

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      No

    2. FPL-(VAR)dy
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      No

  15. ResultatFar
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 5 days ago

    How's it looking mates?

    Gazza
    Van Dijk - Robertson (VC) - Lund
    KDB - Mane (C) - Maddi - Grealish
    Vardy - Jimenez - Ings

    Traore - Baldock - Rico on the bench

    1. The Legend Squad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      You have very nearly the same team as me. Looks great

  16. stupendous
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Some may shout at me but who are expected to have a DGW later on? If there is a even a slight chance Leicester or City do then I'm firmly saving my TC

    Leading in ML so could be massive too

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Good chance for both

      1. stupendous
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Kev or Aguero or Vardy triple captain it is

        I'm gonna take that chance I think probably. Captain Salah, vice Mane. Save tc

        1. Wild Rover
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Thing is you can almost guarantee the Liverpool big boys get both games, you certainly can't say the same for Aguero

          1. stupendous
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            True well then Ederson TC! HAHA

    2. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      TC chip overrated. For details of future doubles, see Crellin's spreadsheet, but the picture will be a lot clearer after the FA Cup 5th round draw.

      1. stupendous
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Aye and yea just no time for that right now and have to go

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Lol sorry to inconvenience your day 🙂

      2. Jarvish Scott Talent
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Actually, Leicester or City will have a DGW if they reach the EFL Cup final won't they. TC chip still overrated though 🙂

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

        TC has worked out brilliant for me season after season. Bench boost is crap though unless you have amazing team value. Always ruin my team on my second WC fitting shyte players with doubles into it who then proceed to blank. Brighton last season case in point. Will be using BB in a single GW this year.

    3. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Did you get burnt by Sane last season? Too risky going city, can’t be sure they play once let alone twice
      Much prefer to use it now before fixtures pile up

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

    Sorry bottomed

    Salah TC has the slight edge over Mane you would agree with assist potential and explosiveness on his day better than Mane??

    The fact iv spent wks planning on getting him in with Mane and TAA also a valid reason to go all in and TC him?..

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      And penalties

    2. ResultatFar
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yes to both. If I owned Salah, he would be my captain

  18. Better Call Raul
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 5 days ago

    1ft 3.7itb

    McCarthy
    TAA-Soy-Lund
    Mane-KdB-Mahrez-Maddison
    Vardy-Ings-DCL

    4.0-Kelly-Cantwell-Rico

    A. Rico -> Pool defender
    B. Vardy -> Bobby
    C. WC

    If I go with A or B will probably still end up wildcarding next week anyway.

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      D. Kdb to salah if you wildcarding anyway. Vardy > kdb this week

      1. Better Call Raul

        I like it. Thanks

  19. The Legend Squad

    Anyone bringing in a WH player for a 1 week punt?

    1. FPL-(VAR)dy
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Noble

    2. ResultatFar
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Fornals has looked the best, I think. But I don't know if it's worth the risk tbh.

    3. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Gone for a Cresswell punt. 🙂

    4. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Haller

  20. Totti
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    will kelly start even after ward has been come back from injury?

    1. CPFC10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yep - Woy won't drop him yet

  21. Tony Martial
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 5 days ago

    GTG..?

    Guaita
    Sidibe Soyuncu Taa
    KDB Salah Mane Martial
    Ings Vardy Mason

    Bench:Button,Todd,Lundy,Hanley

    0 ITB 1FT

    My plan is if I find anyone to be rested I will swap them out (KDB,Ings)

    Thanks

  22. The Big Fella
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    I have 2FT and 2.7m in the bank but no idea what to change this week and don't want to burn a FT
    Ryan / Button
    TAA Robbo Lund Kelly Rico
    Mane KDB Mad Grealish Dend
    Vardy Ings Maupay

    I was going to do Maupay to Jimi but he is against Liverpool this week and Brighton are against Bournemouth.

    Then I thought of Grealish to Mahrez but not sure I can do with the benching

    Then I thought Vardy to Aguero but same thing - Pep roulette.

    Any suggestions at all???

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Dend to cantwell?

      Or Kelly to Williams or lascelles?

  23. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Do we see Wolves scoring?

    Yes 😉

    I miss the GW I went Andy Carrol (TC).

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Kane was fun

      1. Gentle_Turks
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        The 1 pointer?

        1. Wild Rover
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Yep

  25. Gentle_Turks
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Play Rico or Lundstram? Currently on Rico. Likely both Bournemouth and SHU concede but maybe outside chance Lundstram gets an attacking opportunity?

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Rico slightly more sheet chance. I have both on bench and putting Rico first

      1. Gentle_Turks
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Yeah it's probably the 'safer' move. Got a feeling that SHU limit City to just one goal though.

  26. AFC90
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 5 days ago

    What to do with Richarlison ? 0FT

    Team:

    McCarthy
    TAA - Lundstram - Soy
    KDB - Mané - Traore - Rich*
    Abraham - Firmino - Vardy

    Button - Moutinho - Rico - Kelly

    Richarlison out worth a -4?

    Thanks

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Play Rico

  27. Teror
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Captain Salah or Mane?

    Triple captain or no?

    1. Gentle_Turks
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Salah.
      Yes.

      1. zotter
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        This

      2. Warby84
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Agree

  28. bitm2007
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Is anybody else thinking that GW37 will be the only other DGW this season ? It will happen if GW28 and GW34 cup postponements are moved to midweek.

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Gw 37 awful for chips. Rotation and lots of teams not arsd

  29. Teror
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    GW38 Norwich travel to Citeh having probably already been relegated. With silly scores so common on the last day of the season, this could be a good day to play triple cap.

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Unless city have two finals coming up in which case who knows who starts who doesn’t

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Trouble is they won’t have anything to play for, so there’s a high chance they blood some youngsters in...

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
