Scoutcast tackles De Bruyne conundrum as Chelsea find form

The Scoutcast is back to discuss all of the key talking points ahead of Gameweek 30.

You can watch the show on our YouTube channel between 20:00 GMT and 21:00 GMT.

Firstly, we’ll discuss what to do with Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m), who missed Sunday’s Manchester derby and is still a doubt for Arsenal’s trip to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

Then, Chelsea are the team to go under the microscope as they build some good form ahead of some favourable fixtures.

Finally, we continue to work on our advanced planning for Blank Gameweek 31 now that we have a greater idea about the fixtures and which players we may want – or not!

We will also consider the potential effect of Coronavirus on the Premier League, and, therefore, our Fantasy teams.

    KDB no show means Mane (V) > (C) +13points

      Meaningless, seasons getting scrapped

      Mane and Salah are going to be very hungry this coming weekend. Klopp will want to wrap the title up in style!

        Liverpool know now that they need to get this done

            LFC cannot be denied the title by 3 points and a better GD 😉

        Maguire (TOT) or Alonso (AVL) this week? or both for -4?

        How many people are confirmed to have virus in the UK?

        1. HamezMace

          382 have tested positive.
          6 have died, I believe.

        2. olidooley
          • 7 Years
          20 days, 11 hours ago

          382 with 6 deaths and only 8 recovered

        3. Taffer

          382 yesterday...up 63 over Tuesday. So that's growth of 16% per day.

          We're the same as Italy c2 weeks ago.

        Sacrifice Robertson for MU defender?

        1. olidooley
          • 7 Years
          20 days, 11 hours ago

          Robertson plays 31. Man U don’t. Maybe after that

          1. balint84

            freehit will be my cure

              Surely other fires to put out? That could backfire easily

        Some ppl got 100 points or more in this GW with no chips and others got absolutely shafted fryer taking hits to being in Auba, Pépé etc

        If one of the Arsenal players test positive for Coronavirus then that might lead to several self isolations across EPL teams (for example Arsenal played West Ham a few days ago so surely the West Ham players have to self isolate if an Arsenal player tests positive). It’s like a domino effect. I’ve messaged FPL and asked what would happen if in the unlikely event the EPL was cancelled this season. My OR is terrible this season. I swear that has nothing to do with my email...

          How they played vs whm,they could all have corona

        Another point is that these footballers are all multi millionaires with families etc. If the government don’t take steps to cancel the league, then they’ll make the decision themselves.
        They don’t need to take any unnecessary risks

          If a player anywhere in Europe contracts it from playing some stupid Europa league or something, all bets are off

              It's just going to make them feel unwell, won't exactly kill them as it only really affects the old and those with underlying sickness/ health issues.

              The amount that they are paid, they should be forced to play

              1. olidooley
                • 7 Years
                20 days, 11 hours ago

                Can you force anyone to do anything really?

                    Erm have you seen how much they earn...surely you must agree being a fellow pheasant

                    Me is it? I’m being very serious

                  and then they come into

                    contact with their parents, elderly friends, children, etc. No point in risking people s health.

                        20 days, 11 hours ago

                        Ok let me put it differently, everyone has a job to do.

                        These are performers, they are there to entertain us.

                        If I switch from footballer to doctor...would you be saying the same thing...oh poor so and so needs to stop taking risks...it's their job.

                        The show must go on

                          This 100%

                          1. olidooley
                            • 7 Years
                            20 days, 11 hours ago

                            They are there to entertain us? Wise up man. If there is a risk, they’ll choose not to play. What’s going to happen? Dock them some weeks salary? They don’t need the money. Fire them? If they’re any good, another club will pick them up when this is all over

                                Everyone has a price, just offer up the starting positions to those who have the hunger and ambition (even if it has to be the younger Ilk)
