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.

      If Bha-Ars is off, I might just do Auba to Vardy.

        14 day quarantine from last contact with affected person - which would suggest only 2 more days for Arsenal players thus the weekend game goes on as normal. This is assuming they'll be tested and be fine. If anyone tests positive, 14 day quarantine for players and shut down of club facilities - everything changes.

            They may also have to test the West Ham players/staff since they played Arsenal during the 14-day period...

              They will but the reasonable assumption is that if an Arsenal player tests positive then they have to test everyone who came in contact with said player ie West Ham and potentially Portsmouth players. Then spirals.

                Indeed. I can't see many public events taking place in April!

        I assume having 5 points coming off the bench is neither here nor there this week?

            I only have 2!

            better than zero points though

            12 here, plenty with defenders who got a cs or even Barnes.

            2 for me, but at least rivals with multiple arsenal/city won't punish me too much (only KDB for me)

            How likely do we think it is that Liverpool will break the Premier League points record ?

              Depends on CL and Corona

              How likely is that Liverpool be the champions thus year with corona around is the right question to ask now 🙂

                Uhmm.. Hopefully it can be won within the next couple of weeks.

                Relegation could be problematic if the season finishes early.

                1. BNMC
                    2 months, 18 days ago

                    Yeah, we (Villa) still have a game in hand as well. With all the bad luck we've had this season and VAR decisions going against us, this would be a fitting way to end our season.

                • 2 Years
                2 months, 18 days ago

                possible, but they've been slightly off the boil of late, and if season is affected by virus, then who knows - dare i say it season cancelled no trophy (lol even if that were to happen surely it would still be awarded to liverpool, they deserve it afterall)

                  Klopp I believe needs to freshen the team somehow.

                    true, i think they are exhausted, either mentally or physically, but will have enough to get over the line, i think it's fair to say not many other teams are thriving atm

                      The fixture congestion during the winter schedule has had a massive knock on for man players. Has to be eased in the future, you would think.

                      Salah on the right this year has been less destructive. Perhaps a temporary switch to the centre or other wing could revitalise ideas.

              Wait..I see news of Are vs city getting postponed? Can anyone shed some light if this is true? Also, will any other fixture get affected?

                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  Is it because of the virus? If so, other games might get affected as well? How bad is it, in general, in the UK?

                    less deaths than flu etc, most people have mild symptoms if any, it's not SARS or Ebola, but still dangerous to vulnerable people

                        The CFR is also looking an order of magnitude greater than influenza.

                    It is because olympiacos president resulted positive and some of the arsenal staff members were with him during Europa..

                What's the deal with Wolves' game - is Uefa still going to make them play?

                  Seems like they are - which is a terrible idea. Props to the FA on swift and safe action on City Arsenal.

                i really think the travel bans and cancelling games is an unjustified reaction, it's obvious the virus is everywhere, the figures only represent people who've been tested, the actual figures of those who've contracted the virus must be multiple times higher, this is just authorities wanting to be seen to be doing the right thing - i hope everyone is taking reasonable precautions and staying as safe as can be, but the genie is already out of the bottle, it's too late to stop the spread!

                  That is true but you've obviously not been paying much attention, the point of these measures is not to try to stop it spreading but to try to delay it, specifically to the summer when hospitals are not already full of people with flu and pneumonia, and so that people die at a manageable rate.

                  Seems pretty sensible to me.

                  1. SAY MY NAME
                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 18 days ago

                    not saying it's not sensible, just don't think it will help much, it's only focusing in high profile media events, meanwhile normal travel and social interaction carries on as normal, which is where the main spread will be

                      Agreed. Also my sympathies for so many responses mine included , the perils of commenting on social media! All the best!

                        no worries friend, my fault for not stating what i meant properly in the first place, i can see why so many people reacted the way they did, all the best to you too sir!

                  'its too late to stop the spread' is not at all any reason not to make active effort to stop the spread - especially because that statement isn't true. Currently the only way to combat CoVid-19 is to contain it. Take every measure possible to prevent it from spreading more. It's the only way for health services to get ahead of it.

                  1. SAY MY NAME

                    2 months, 18 days ago

                    in which case let's stop all travel and social interactions which are the effective measures taken in Taiwan, just focusing on the odd big media-hyped event won't change anything, either do it properly or it's a futile exercise, i guess that's the point i was trying to make

                      i tend to agree with you, in terms of how virus is spread. Areas like airports, boats and ferries should be places where they should focus on. On the other hand, taking precautions is not opposed to doing that, it should be added to the this main precautions.

                    but realistic mate, see my other points, i'm all for slowing the spread, but it needs to be done properly, not just a football match with what 40-60k people, when millions are on the tube everyday, i don't see the measures taken in South Korea and Taiwan, but my point is if it's a media/tv event then all of a sudden it's a big deal, if we want to tackle it let's have everyone who can working from home, let's have sanitisers available in public places and on transport etc etc

                      With regards to this one game I think its cancelled because the Arsenal contingent have been in contact at the Olympiakos game with someone who tested positive. Therefore you can't have the Arsenal staff/players spreading it around when there is a possibility they were exposed.

                      The UK reaction to the situation has been an absolute shambles. I'm in Vietnam. Schools here have been shut nationwide for 6 weeks. We had 3 weeks with no new cases until it was bought back in on a plane from London!

                      I don't think the UK is doing the same as authorities here. Each case is obviously isolated, and then the people they have been in contact with are also quarantined or self-quarantined. And I'm talking about to the third or forth level of contact. It's meticulous. Containment here is, and continues to be, extremely well managed. I won't say the apparatus of a socialist state hasn't helped them, it has! But the UK just seems to be saying "Oh well...not much we can do is there". Give it 7-14 days. See how many stadiums are still open...

                        yeah i agree tbh, i think the more savvy and controlling states, many with a socialist lean, have been better in their reaction, i didn't put it right, all i meant was let's not mess around with half-arsed measures that won't work, just because it's in the media spotlight, peace and health to you

                  I'm glad you are not a public health official! This take would mean we just totally give up and let thousands more die than is necessary. They know that a large percentage of the population will be infected and are trying to delay the spread to stop healthcare systems being overwhelmed. People who get very sick who have access to medical facilities are far more likely to be OK. So that is where the idea of 'flattening the curve' will save many lives. I'm afraid my DGW captaincy of Aubs rather pales into insignificance!

                    exactly, so let's have a proper policy to limit the spread, not just the odd sport event, that's my point, i have elderly relations with health problems, and i am concerned about them, what i want is an effective policy, my initial post was probably not stated in the correct way

                    Sorry, cannot agree with this. How many people die every year from Flu and colds where they have weak immune systems.

                    This is over-hyped by Social Media and the media in general because they can.

                    I agree that it is sad that these things happen but what would have happened if this was 1980 for example, no way would this have received such attention. In the meantime it is scaremongering amongst the vulnerable and goes alot further than football. My employer that has 10 + hotels and multi million turnover is seriously struggling for cashflow directly because the guest bookings have dried up, and why because they are spooked, and this putting several hundred jobs at risk, that's the real cost

                    Rant over.

                  If by limiting your interaction with the masses helps to limit the potential spread of the virus, shouldn't this be seen as a positive?

                  By limiting its spread, this will lead to less and less cases on a daily basis, until it (hopefully) becomes 0. As for those who have it once they recover then they are ok.

                  With an approximate mortality rate of 2-4%, can you imagine if Wolves travels to Greece with a squad of 25 players and they contract the virus, and going by the percentages 1 or 2 will die?

                  Some things are bigger than FPL.

                    having a terrible fpl season, couldn't really care less about that, my point although initially incorrectly made was that we should have an effective prevention policy/protocol rather than one based seemingly solely on media events

                    Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of people are travelling round the world on flights picking up people from all countries and visiting all countries.

                    Flew Perth to Doha and then Doha to Frankfurt last week, both on A380s, didn’t recognise anyone on the 2nd flight. I don’t have it, but if I did I could have transferred it to several nations. Not sure playing a few sports games without fans will do much tbh.

                      Yiu might have had it, indeed you might have it. The fact that symptoms are so mild for most (and done have none) is precisely why this one has been do difficult to contain

                    I agree with your first point.
                    Containment and delay are key.

                    However to hypothesise that 1 or 2 Wolves players would die is grandiose in the extreme.

                DGW fail for me. One rival gets Barnes 19pts from bench. The other has played KDB(TC), Walker(VC)

                At this rate, the weekend matches will either be cancelled or played with no fans

                    No fans wouldn't be the worst thing; a lot of us have a majority of our players playing away this weekend, and no fans would certainly change things.

                      As stated above-

                      14 day quarantine from last contact with affected person - which would suggest only 2 more days for Arsenal players thus the weekend game goes on as normal. This is assuming they'll be tested and be fine. If anyone tests positive, 14 day quarantine for players and shut down of club facilities - everything changes.

                        Yup
                        All it'll take is one positive case from the Arsenal side. West Ham shut down too.

                        But if the players in isolation also played on Saturday against West Ham then things change. And if any of the players socialised over the weekend with other footballers from the other London clubs ......

                    Well Wildcarding to hit this DGW has cost 20 plus the WC but clearly the medical news is more important. Having said that, if there's games being called off because a single official met some people involved, we must only be days away from the season being paused? I can't see them just cancelling the league but the Euros must be doomed, especially in this pan-European format. It is unfortunate that this novel plan has come at the worst year for it in many years!

                        I just did a quick calculation and my pre-WC team (assuming I would have captained KDB and vice captained Salah) outscored my WC team by 4 points. Not the worst, but since I'm chasing I have the mentality of every point counts.

                          I had Martial, Vardy... and I'd have had my wildcard for when the season resumes in late July!

                            At least it should cover the medical costs of the people who are being affected and family members of the dead ones..

                            virus came from either dead animals or rats, not sure how that works in legal terms? Will you rather sue the dead animals or the rats? prosecution will be hard to come by, you know?

                            they have to investigate the reason for the spread, and take actions thereafter, in that matter Europe might help with experts and our good health system.

                                  This is me. Exactly. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh I lead my cash league and could’ve gotten ahead by a country mile.

                                  Might just get myself a transfer ban for the rest of the season

                                You already had Salah on 9 points.

                                      Triple Arsenal and triple Wolves in my squad after a WC this week, both of which could have their games moved... the only chip I have left is FH... season's basically over.

                                        Triple Arsenal, double City, triple Wolves brought in in WC ... it’s worse than having your account hacked 😉

                                            I mean, if Andy survived a hacking, surely I can survive a couple of unexpected postponements.

                                              didn’t he have his team reinstated ?

                                                  He had to play a WC against his will to cancel all the transfers that the hacker made.

                                          There should be two options to choose from when entering FPL next time round.

                                          Option 1: Start injured players and get bench wankery points.

                                          This option will be named element of/luck or Novice.

                                          Option 2: Tactical, 0 points for starting injured players including no bench wankery points.

                                          This option would be named difficult.

                                          Which option would you choose?

                                            Both options are named meh.

                                                You are playing option 1 at the moment.

                                                    Or let me rephrase that, all of us are playing option 1 at the moment.

                                                  What if a player seems fit before the deadline but gets injured after the deadline?

                                                      Then you get an oppertunity to replace the injured player with another from your bench.

                                                    There’s a reason you have a bench... hate it when it’s called luck. Same with VC, it’s why we have them.

                                                        But you will still have a bench with option two. The only difference is it will be your choice if you want to start an injured player or not but you will be made aware that if he does not play, 0 points for you.

                                                        I would have ended the season in the doldrums of 2.2m OR!

                                                      It's crazy to think that Italy was open and normal just 3 weeks back, and now the hospitals are deciding who they let die.

                                                      Situation's going to be so volatile in the next 2 months around the world, all that GW31 planning for nothing?

                                                          I prefer A , how much in the bank?

                                                          Season could genuinely be over.

                                                          The UK could easily go Italy's way, so good chance its postponed.

                                                          Depends how PL wants the season to end. I can see no way the last 90 matches are all played before June.

                                                        Here I am, pissed at myself (and corona) for doing Vardy -> Auba... even when there’s no chance I could’ve known that the match would be called off.

                                                        Just goes to show that a lot of times in FPL, you’re better off doing nothing.

                                                            Which is why I'm probably not touching my team until the end of the month. I have enough GW31 players to get by and I'll have 2 FTs after that to do something.

                                                            We have to stand by the logic of our decisions.

                                                            Whether they work out is another matter.

                                                              True. And the logic was sound (doubtful Vardy, golden boot winner with a dgw). Just disappointed it backfired I guess. Can’t control the corona 🙁 🙂

                                                                One fpl behaviour that I have changed this year is letting things slide.

                                                                Thinking through my decisions thoroughly, and therefore:
                                                                Not chastising myself for decisions that fail. Conversely not being elated when plans work perfectly or better than expected.

                                                          So any news on which GW can they fit the Arsenal-City game? I think as late as Gw37/38 maybe of City are still in Cup competitions.

                                                            WC played, 5 DGW players, WC, probably 10 + points down on my old team and looking like losing 3 Wolves this game week too

                                                          Do you think KDB wiill start vs Burnley ?

                                                          Will Pep risk him getting battered against old school bullies like Ben Mee Tarkowski and Bardsley 3 days before vital CL clash against Madrid?

                                                          Look how they fared against Man utd without KDB. Pep will definitely want to wrap him in cotton wool for Madrid clash no?

                                                            *especially since he's nursing a shoulder injury

                                                            Gonna say KDB should start and play 60mins to get his match fitness back before the Madrid game.

                                                            Alternatively, he'll be very keen to oil KDB's wheels before next week's RM match. I think that he might get part of the Burnley match.

                                                          The league games must go on even if it means postponing the Euros so there is enough days to schedule all the games.

                                                            Same here. Almost feels like a -2.

                                                          I live in Germany and I’m getting married here in May.

                                                          I got tickets to Euro 2020 final in the ballot.

                                                          I’m currently 1.8k with WC, FH and BB left

                                                          Coronavirus picked an annoying year to shut the world down for me...

                                                          Still, at least Liverpool may not be crowned champions. Every cloud and that...

                                                            Finish on a high!!!

                                                            Wow. That's tough. Are weddings prohibited in Germany? Or do you have to make the decision your self?

                                                              Well family and friends are supposed to be flying over from England and France... could be a small wedding now.

                                                          Well that's the definition of good/bad luck in this game - extraordinary turn of events. I have genuine sympathy for those who tried to take advantage of the DGW by bringing in ARS/MCI players,
