Scoutcast Episode 321 – Son replacements and FPL rule changes

The Premier League’s winter break has conspired to make Gameweek 26 the longest that FPL managers have experienced.

It therefore seems fitting that the Scoutcast is an extended episode, spanning 90 minutes as the crew are finally able to look ahead to Gameweek 27 and beyond.

Among the pressing issues discussed by Joe, Holly and Az is the long-term injury to Son Heung-min and the best replacements for the Tottenham attacker.

Relegation scrappers, in particular, Aston Villa’s talismanic midfielder Jack Grealish, also come under consideration as FPL managers hope the basement-dwelling stars will defy their perilous position to deliver points.

Meanwhile, Manchester City’s financial fair play issues and subsequent Champions League ban are discussed. How will UEFA’s momentous decision affect the Citizens’ chances of domestic success for the season run-in?

The winter-break scheduling also sparks a lively debate on potential rule changes for FPL next season. Could the busy festive fixture period in the game be reduced to create an extra Gameweek in February?

Points allocation changes, player reclassification and revamping chips are among a raft of other FPL tweaks our trio ponder.

This episode’s look at Gameweek 26 sees Az present a ‘dossier’ to Joe concerning his recent Wildcard. This gives Joe a chance to discuss how a serious health scare last year is driving his decisions this time around.

Holly takes her turn to pick a differential, on the back of Lateriser12’s recent success selecting Arsenal’s Nicolas Pepe, who racked up 17 points against Newcastle last weekend. So, no pressure there.

Clean sheets are looked at and our trio round off proceedings by revealing their captaincy and transfer plans.

    Except for Gw 29, 34 and 37, are theyre any potential DGWs?

    1. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years

      there*

        Could be a TGW 😯

        1. Dr. Agabuse
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          That doesnt really hurt me.
          Rivals have TC and i am wo dering when they could use it if Pool lose to chelsea in the cup.
          Then they will keep FH alongside TC and BB and will have no extra DGW to use it.

          Seems like Salah DGW couple of weeks ago was the right choice

            *if pool win vs chelsea in the cup, i mean

              I think the majority will plan to FH 31 TC 34 then WC 35/36 in preparation for BB 37. Well that’s my plan

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

    How's this over two weeks planning from now...

    Webster, Son and Ayew
    To
    Robbo, Saka and Jimenez?

    Saka would be 5th mid in a 3 4 3

    1. Dreadful
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Decent

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

        Leaves me with

        Ryan
        Robbo TAA Soyuncu
        Salah Mahrez KDB Traore
        Ings Auba Jimmy

        McGovern Saka Lundy Holgate

        And a wildcard and all 3 chips intact!

        1. Dreadful
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 7 days ago

          More than decent then. Especially IF Arsenal and City do get a double in 29.

          1. stupendous

            1 month, 7 days ago

            Lovely thanks

            Webster and Son out first
            Robbo saka in

            Then Jimmy in for Ayew

            Cheers

      I like it... Saka a worthy punt

    3. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Or Gomez if you need to free up some cash.

  3. Dreadful
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 month, 7 days ago

    Worth keeping Digne until 31 as he’ll likely play? Bad fixtures though.

    1. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I would keep.
      Think it can be a great advantage to keep FH

      Especcialy if Pool win in the cup and dont play and everybody will play FH and u can keep it..
      Unless you still have TC too

    2. JK 171
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Tough one good player awful fixtures I suppose it would come down to who u would bring in

    3. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I wanted to sell him but getting Vardy out and GW28 ahead on priorities.

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Vardy is my captain in 27 and 28 likely

        1. Dr. Agabuse
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Sorry 28, 29

          1. GreennRed
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            He's been poor recently, despite rest from winter break and injury.

    4. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Plenty of decent cheap defenders for other GWs.
      Look at Taylor or Boly too

    5. Dreadful
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Cheers all. Can do Lundstram or Dunk to Gomez or Boly and bench him most weeks until then. Feels like a waste having a 5.7m defender on the bench though.

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Also Norwich could win vs Son and Kane less Spurs in the cup

        1. Dr. Agabuse
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          So maybe Doherty for you?

  4. jaguar shark
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Vardy to Jimenez?

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

      Not for me. I know he's out of form but after this week Vardy has Norwich, Villa and Watford. Any other way to get Jimmy?

      1. jaguar shark
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Could do DCL to Jimenez...

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

          That's the move I'm making.

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Yes.

    3. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Whos your other strikers.

      Jimmy
      Ings
      Vardy
      is my line up and i dont want to change one of them

      1. jaguar shark
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        If I swap DCL I’ll have that.

        1. Dr. Agabuse
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          DCL has that likely 31 fixture, if you plan on not FH that GW, so Jimmy for Vardy could work, but if Vardy scores in his easy 3fixtures and DCL bottles it, nobody would be surprised much

      2. Reiger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I always thought ur grav was an aerail shot of some Island. I now realise its clearly a Jaguar Shark xD

        1. Dr. Agabuse

          Lol

          ;D : yup the allusive jaguar shark!

    5. JK 171
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Think it’s been a really strange season so far. I see lots of really good looking squads in here but with poor g/w scores/ranks and honestly think my own squad is poor in comparison but my rank is high so I’m now just gambling again or covering other top 10k teams. Looking forward to finally using some chips tho

      1. GreennRed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        It's a good FPL season. Not as many big hitters in template teams other than Pool players. Sheffield United bringing good options. Cheaper forwards doing well. City rotation. Players selling/buying form/ out of form players based on fixtures. A nice few variables.

        1. JK 171
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Totally agree

      2. The_Fish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I think it’s been relatively easy, I can’t understand how so many top players are struggling.

        I’ve basically had template with a hint of maverick all season and I’m 3k. Mad punts usually don’t work out.

        1. Trophé Mourinho
            1 month, 7 days ago

            I think this season kinda messed up the traditional way of playing FPL where being smart and patient ultimately pays off.
            Some of those players have just struggled to adjust to that change and have given out of form players too much time, Sterling for example.

            People let FPL price points dictate their decision making too much. The people who chose those prices, they thought Lundstram was a defender..

            1. JK 171
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              The flip side to that is last season if a bandwagon had gone up say .3 I use to think I’ve missed the boat and ignore them only for them to keep scoring and go up another million. I’ve since learnt that lesson

              1. Trophé Mourinho
                  1 month, 7 days ago

                  yea im stubborn like that

              2. JK 171
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                Yea I’ve thought it’s strange how some of the top players have struggled this season but I suspect if they had a bad start the felt the need to pick a differential rather than the lord/Vardy early on.

                1. Trophé Mourinho
                    1 month, 7 days ago

                    This season in general, just feels different. Like the game is being played in a slightly different way now, faster moving. Think it comes down to the general rise in users, not everyones an expert no, but most of the information now is more readily available then it once was.

              Solid team there. Might look to get Boly in for Soy or Holgate.

            1 month, 7 days ago

            With Son, Aguero, KDB and Mahrez my head is wrecked.
            Son + Aguero to Mane + Vardy (-4) is the obvious move to me but I'm 0.1 short... frustrating!

            1. HuttonDressedasLahm

              1 month, 7 days ago

              If you had the 0.1 maybe you would feel crazy to consider Vardy and stop considering.
              Keep Aguero and move out Son for sonone else.
              Get a third Pool in defense.
              Look at their run!

            3. Soto Ayam
                1 month, 7 days ago

                I swapped vardy for Jimenez this week. Just got fed up with his more than disappointing returns. I don't think it's a loss you can't get him. Could he a blessing in disguise

            4. Dr. Agabuse
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              I am currently 7k and if i had to say one Thing that i did right was, steady planning, not jumping on early bandwagons and keeping cool.
              I have only done -4 once so far and never had the feeling of putting a weak team out.
              I almost played fixtures over Form this season.
              I would love to see a stat where we could see how many away and home games our players played.
              I feel, i always play at home 🙂

                • 7 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                Not taking hits is the key. Any time I take one it backfires.

                1. Dr. Agabuse
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 7 days ago

                  Wouldnt back that statement but if you feel, you have a great team nonetheless then ofc 4saved helps..
                  But id rather take a hit for a longterm move, than a Pukki or Cantwell with mediocre fixtures in the beginning of the season

                  1. BillionairesClub
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 7 days ago

                    Nick Tanner who's been in the top 20 for most of the season has been taking 4 and 8 point hits almost every week, hes dropped down to 2k now though

                2. Trophé Mourinho
                    1 month, 7 days ago

                    Nah there will be some people highly ranked who took numerous hits, almost certainly early in the season. If you pick the right players early and get a bit lucky then great, but that wont be the case for every season.
                    Just take hits in the early weeks and secure a good rank then just be steady

                  • Reiger

                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 7 days ago

                    Yep, need to very judicious with the hits. I’ve only taken four so far. And I’ve had only four red arrows this season... been pretty lucky with choosing the bandwagons to hop on, and when to stick with a player and be patient.

                3. JK 171
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 7 days ago

                  I’ve taken 3 hits so far this season and one week knowingly went with no keeper rather that take a hit. Always prefer home players however doesn’t always work our for me.

                  I take 80 to 120 points hits every season, some seasons it's works, some it doesn't. Taken 20 hits already this season and having a mare (but having a lot of bad luck).
                  I have a top 10k plus a top 5k from playing this way, it makes it very hard to be consistent but it's much more fun (at times) 🙂

                1 month, 7 days ago

                I've had 5 green and 5 red arrows in the last 10 GW's.

                Consistency 😉

                  9 greens in 10, pretty consistent.

                1 month, 7 days ago

                A. son and Greenwood to traore and Jimmy for a hit. Would mean benching Martial .
                B.Just do Son to Traore for free

                  I'd just go with b.

                  I wouldn't bench Martial and don't like hits so it's B for me...

                    DCL + Grealish to Jimenez + JWP for -4?
                    Madness or masterclass?

                    Can't afford just DCL to Jimenez

                      Worth it to get Jimi vs. NOR... I see a goal or two on the way.

                      do it, DCL and Grealish have awful fixtures

                        I wouldn't take either DCL or grealish outta my team currently. Who are your other strikers?

                        1. Goodnight Kiwi

                          1 month, 7 days ago

                          You wouldn't?

                          DCL has ARSE many CHE pool in his next four.
                          Grealish has SOU blank LEI Che in this next four.

                          Other strikers are Vardy and Ings who are not moving.

                      I still have a wildcard but im having a shocker currently. Would you bench boost this team next week?

                            No imo because of these

                            Ryan

                              Thought rico v Burnley and lunds (will prob start) with also a nice fixture would be good

                            Wait for a double after your WC. Chances of some of your players missing out so it’s too risky for me.

                      Traore or H Barnes will keep me awake for sure

                          Like the Barnes punt tbh

                          Tough one Barnes has been delivering recently but traore is better to watch so I’d say him.

                              Would think even a mild hamstring would rule him out for at least this week

                              Son + Aguero + Henderson to Mane + Vardy + Pope (-8)
                              Have exact money and wouldn't need hit in 28, worth it?

                                Prob just about a yes

                                  yeah, if Mane hauls v WHU it could prove a sweet move but it's tough taking this -8 as my bench is rubbish so if Mahrez or KDB don't play it hurts me (had Hayden 1 pointer this week)

                                Which of Holgate and Lundstram would you remove 1st?

                                Hendo, Lundstram, Grealish, KDB + Auba in my team atm so kind of stuck for GW 28 as it is although I do have 2 ft's now.

                                Thinking Lundstram but there is that nagging feeling that he may retain his place after all. Holgate's fixtures are brutal too.

                                Full squad-
                                Hendo.
                                TAA, Stephens, Williams, Lundstram.
                                Grealish, KDB, Mane, Salah.
                                Ings, Aubameyang.
                                Stek, Maupay, Dendoncker, Holgate.
                                2ft, 0.1m ITB.

                                  Holgate for me.

                                    Holgate for me also lord may get place back and Holgate fixtures ain’t great

                                    I would do Maupay to Ayew and Stek to a playing 28 keeper.
                                    From your list, Lund to Saiss?

                                    Morning. No one calling to me as a Son replacement. Appreciate any thoughts on latest idea

                                    Henderson/ Skelt
                                    TAA/ VVD/ Egan/ Stephens/ Lasalle
                                    Salah/ KDB/ Son/ Grealish/ Hayden
                                    Auba/ DCL/ Ings
                                    0.0 ITB 1FT

                                    A. Son to Traore (cash in the bank for DCL to Jiminez or Vardy later)
                                    B Son to Taore and DCL to Jiminez -4 (leading mini league by a bit and dont mind a hit)
                                    C Something else.

                                    Team is not great for 28 but will do Skelt to SOT keeper and play with 10, bench of KDB, Grealsih, Auba, Egan, Henderson as want them all longer term. Thanks for any thoughts

                                        What do we think is the optimal strategy with all chips to play except TC?
                                        First time player sitting nicely in ML and OR but no idea what’s best way to go about considering I like my team atm no names for WC for abit. Tia

                                          If only a few games in 31 FH then I’d suppose u would have to wait and see which dgw is better and W/C just before it so u can BB 15 players for it. However if u can get 9-11 players in 31 with transfers then hold your FH

                                              Thanks man appreciate the help!
                                              Yeah I can defo get a team out for 31 without FH so maybe use that for the 1st DGW then W/C 36 for the DGW in 37 would be best for me do you think m8?

                                                Not many fixtures have been confirmed yet for 31 due to cup games and also don’t b afraid to w/c 2 weeks before a double sometimes that can b an advantage due to fixtures and gives u a free transfer going into the double

                                                If Liverpool lose against Chelsea then I’d be playing through 31 with about 9/10 players with the plan for FH34, WC36 and BB 37. Could all change though.

                                            Im planning on feilding 6 or 7 players for gw31 hopefully, then WC and BB for the first dgw and FH for the 2nd dgw

                                          Need to replace Lundstram and Kelly

                                              B with Lascelles or C.Taylor imo

                                            I think my move this week will be Targett to Williams partly in preparation for the blank and partly for funds because if city/arsenal or Chelsea have a double in 29 we’re going to need ever penny.

                                            Was tempted to do Son > Alli, but seems like he might be going out of favour?

                                              If I were to get a Spurs player, it would be Moura or Bergwijn.

                                              Hold? Hate to waste a free transfer, but I can't think of what else to do.

                                                  Like Barcelona without Messi, Saurez & Dembele.
                                                  "If Liverpool play in Champions league without Salah, Mane & Firmino, they still have Origi."
                                                  Wow, so Kane & Son are the equivalent of Barca or Pool front 3, I honestly never realised they were that good.
                                                  Jose back on the smack I guess.

                                                    Actually he is right. Son is better than Salah. And Kane is certainly good enough as Messi

                                                    It’s all relative to the team one has. Doesn’t have to be interpreted as Son=Messi or Kane=Suarez ability wise. Not his fan but don’t understand why every statement of his has to be scrutinized in this manner. If Villa lose Grealish to injury it is like Barca losing Messi. Does this mean Grealish=Messi? No.

                                                      Agreed. I don't like Mourinho (or Tottenham), but this case is pretty simple - Tottenham are without their two best goalscorers. No subtext here.

                                                    While it is true that they were missing key players it was Mourinho who stuck with his outdated negative tactics and sat back at home as if Leipzig were the reincarnation of Guardiola's Barcelona. No disrespect to Leipzig, they're clearly a good side, but it was a much more even game when Spurs actually tried to attack after going behind. Could've been a different result if Jose took a braver approach.

                                                    He has a point though. He is missing his two best offensive players. The Origi comment is laughable thought. But then again, Origi has performed above standard when needed the most

                                                      I mean Mourinho's version of Origi is Parrot... Not exactly the same

                                                    Most seem to miss the point that Jose is comparing his two Spurs players to 3 players from two undisputably better forward lines.
                                                    His argument may have had a smidgen of reality if he had compared 2 for 2.
