Fantasy Football Scout yearly memberships extended to the end of the season

Yearly subscribers of Fantasy Football Scout will have their memberships extended to the end of 2019/20 – whatever that date happens to be.

The Premier League recently announced that the current campaign would be postponed indefinitely, with the league’s governing body admitting that a planned resumption at the beginning of May wouldn’t happen.

As a result of the ongoing uncertainty, we have no real idea of a restart date for Fantasy Premier League, let alone an endpoint.

There is little to zero chance of the Premier League being completed by June 1, then, which is when yearly Fantasy Football Scout memberships for the 2019/20 campaign would ordinarily have expired.

However, we are pleased to confirm today that we will extend the end date of all full-season memberships until the finish of the concluding Gameweek, whenever that happens to fall.

We had previously issued an update on monthly memberships and that agreement still stands.

If you are on a rolling monthly subscription for a month that features no Premier League football, we are happy to offer a refund for the relevant period.

A refund, rather than a cancellation, means that you will not have to sign up again once the season resumes. If this is something you would like, get in touch with support@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk.

Cancelling your Scout membership will mean losing access to the Members Area, data, tools and any articles we produce behind the paywall, with the full list of benefits listed here.

    Quick question please, with regards Virtual FPL, if a player is currently injured in real life - Son etc, do they start off injured in VFPL, or are all players technically fit from Virtual season start?

      Thanks for this question - another question related to to this Virtual FPL:

      Will every scheduled game go on as planned or is there a certain probability that each game will be cancelled meaning double gameweeks can happen later on?

        I think Ragabolly said somewhere here that no blank or double GWs in VFPL.

    This season is finished. No winners. Reset for 20/21 in August. Alternative is two dog's messes.

      I wonder if we’ll be lucky enough to have UK football at all before a vaccine is available...

      I’d love to know what exit strategies governments are planning for when it comes to eventual justification of gradual & slight relaxation of lockdown restrictions (let alone a return to full public sporting events in a vaccine-less world)

      In a vaccine-less world, they can’t really use anything other than a pre-defined level of infections & deaths that they deem “acceptable”... and there’s a fair chance that governments parties generically are not going to want to go on record as saying they consider any level of deaths “acceptable” enough to relax restrictions

      A properly tested, safe Vaccine could obviously be minimum 12-18 months away... getting millions of people innoculated could be further more months heaped on top of that...

      The current strategies are like putting a box on top of a deadly snake & sitting on it - it works fine short term until you get off the box again - but you can’t sit there forever

      Is massive testing capacity the answer? Possibly... but it’s still letting the snake out of the box

        There's a good chance Premier League won't be the first major league to try some form of return to play - Bundesliga perhaps? Possibly an opportunity to observe any precedent laid down and see how it pans out short term.

        Either way, I can't see PL and other major leagues risking 'next season' with the initial trials. Having a handful of games left gives a good opportunity to test the water in a way.

        Of course, one possible scenario for this season being abandoned could be following an unsuccessful return to matches and another subsequent lockdown.

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 23 days ago

          Some Bundesliga clubs are actually already back in group training, albeit non-contact, so there’s hope football can be played again rather than having to wait until 2021 for the vaccine

          To really understand when it’s realistic to expect similar in the U.K. though - we need to be given some context as to what are the different lockdown exit strategies being planned for (in Germany for example they are planning for immunity certificates to allow the right people to safely leave lockdown)

          https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-germany-covid-19-immunity-certificates-testing-social-distancing-lockdown-2020-3?r=US&IR=T

          But that’s Germany - they are light years ahead of most other countries in the way they’ve handled (and had the health service resources to handle) things

          Anthony Fauci (when he’s not being censored by Big Don) reckons that, even though re-infections have happened in other countries, the virus isn’t mutating significantly so that type of population-level immunity could help with second waves that might come later in the year

          https://thehill.com/changing-america/well-being/prevention-cures/491988-fauci-recovered-coronavirus-patients-will-likely

          It still all comes back to someone from the government having to go in front of the cameras though & say “we now feel it’s safe now to do X, Y, & Z, and here’s why” which is possibly not a message they’ll be queuing up to deliver given the implications in a vaccine-less world

        I think we'll have to learn to live with it till a vaccine is developed unless it goes away as fast as it came.
        The economic implications of lockdowns are disastrous. If the virus doesn't kill us no money could. All governments will have to lift the lockdowns sooner or later.
        Football will have to come back sooner or later be it behind closed doors for the money.

        Either we will lose a lot of people or a lot of money or just hope and pray this disease vanishes completely.

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 23 days ago

          Yep - If football is to be played before a vaccine then it’s unavoidable that a shift occurs to more of a “we must learn to live with it”,”this is now the LESSER of two evils” (versus complete economic ruin), “The cure is actually starting to become worse than the disease” type stance

          Socialising that message though, and the criteria the powers that be define as being the point at which we emerge from our houses is going to introduce massive cognitive dissonance

          X number of cases? Y number of deaths? Z % consecutive daily decline in infections/fatalities?

          However sophisticated the measurement criteria, it still will boil down to a level of infection & death from an vaccine-less disease that has now been deemed “acceptable” enough to allow gradual roll-back of restrictions, let alone fully public sporting events etc

      I preferred your Monty Python take tbh 🙂

      The season is not over until any official announcement from the Premier League confirming such. (Likewise the ability to even commence next season on time, irrespective of any cancellation, is still a matter of question.)

      Suggestions to the contrary are long tired and now verging on a deeply pathetic self-serving yearn. Imo 🙂

      Looks like clubs are voting to end it. Be intresting to see if they vote to cancel the national league. I know of a couple that have . Couple of Italian clubs refusing to play if it carries on over there too. Pressure is on

    Working on my slow wildcard at the moment..
    Confused as to how I should use my 1 FT?

    Ryan Button
    PvA* Saiss Taylor Egan* Lascelles
    Mane Salah* Maddison* Bruno Doncker
    Aubameyang Jimenez Calvert-Lewin

    1. Epic ⚽ 墅

      Don't use it.

      1. Slitherene
        • 2 Years

        Any suggestions going forward?

    2. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I would find a way to get TAA in there over the coming weeks.

    3. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Why would you get rid of Egan, he is nailed in one of the best defence, he is cheap and he has the extra game ?

      1. FPL Pillars

  7. Stoichkov#8

    It's GW1 in Virtual FPL today!

    Who do you captain guys? Also is anyone starting strong and using TC or BB in GW1?

    1. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 23 days ago

      I think Vardy will be my captain. Looking forward for some fantasy games again 🙂 I actually signed up for a danish stock market fantasy manager game just to have some fantasy feeling these days...

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 23 days ago

        I went strong in midfield so dont even own Vardy 🙁 hope Barnes can cover part of his points.
        Also cant wait for VFPL to start, Im very exciting! 🙂

      Leaning towards Rashford, no chips in play.

      Can we not arrange friendlies anymore? Had two up my sleeve I was keen to use.

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 23 days ago

        Nice pick too. I went Martial as United cover and have light forward line. We'll see how it works.
        About friendlies I used mine without any problems but yesterday it was some technical problem so maybe thats the reason.

        1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          Bruno not tempt you? Rashford I'd forgotten about

          1. Stoichkov#8
            • 5 Years
            10 months, 22 days ago

            Both made similar in my friendlies but Martial 0,5 cheaper so go with him.

    3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Captain Aubameyang for me.
      Finding some 50 50s tough...
      - Salah vs Mane
      - how to cover SU at the back best
      - Kdb vs Auba
      - Sarr/Barnes vs Wood/Deeney/Ings

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        For me:
        - Salah (but both will score similar long term imo)
        - I pick just attacking defs so not interested in SHU
        - Kdb vs Auba - both too expensive but if you must than Auba
        - Wood/Deeney/Ings better

      Looking at Vardy.

      Bigger headache here is whether to triple up Liverpool and if so how.

      Experimenting right now with Robbo TAA with Auba Mane as forward premiums. Feels thin.

      Suspect way to go is to cover price points for unexpected bolter. Upside is with no price rises no one will disappear out of reach

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        I triple Liv so have light forward line.
        No price changes will make game less "stresfull".

      Salah cap
      Quick question
      Just recently signed up for this. Are the games weekly? Still one trans per week?
      Cheers, goiod luck all

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Salah C too here!
        There will probably be 3 GWs every week but Ragabolly said he will confirm that after GW1 so keep an eye on it.

        1. Gizzachance
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          Cheers

      2. Ragabolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        GW2 will be a week from today just so that I fix any issues that might appear after the deadline. Then 4 GWs will run Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday of every week.

        1. Gizzachance
          • 6 Years

      Captained Aguero. Are all players gonna be classed as fit and available for the duration or will real world injuries impact availability?

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Aguero nice pick but too expensive for me.
        All players fit for GW1 but there will be injuries like in real football so any player can be injured in GW1 or later on.

    7. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Salah captain and BB for me

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        I was thinking to BB but didnt like my team as was too weak. Who are your BB players?

        1. ritzyd
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          Heaton (bou)
          Willems (EVE)
          Soyuncu (WHU)
          Ayew (BRI)

          Not amazing but as there are no DGW's seems most sensible to go for it this week when you know there are defo no injuries/suspensions

          1. Stoichkov#8
            • 5 Years
            10 months, 22 days ago

            Not bad tbh but Heaton didnt start in my friendlies so be careful.
            Im waiting with BB to be sure who is nailed and also wait for some injury of big hitter to use his funds to upgrade bench for BB.

            1. ritzyd
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              10 months, 22 days ago

              Odd, started in mine, ah well - only a bit of fun to pass the time so will take the risk!

              1. Stoichkov#8
                • 5 Years
                10 months, 22 days ago

                Not sure how can we trust those pre season friendlies.
                Funny that all managers will make their teams based on diferent preseason games!

                1. ritzyd
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  10 months, 22 days ago

                  I think ragabolly said somewhere that lineups were based on minutes played when available for selection from actual fpl this season so i'm assuming heaton is still first choice. My whole team is a bit punty with a few 'forgotten' injured in there!

                  1. Stoichkov#8
                    • 5 Years
                    10 months, 22 days ago

                    Oh, ok.
                    Good luck than!

                    10 months, 22 days ago

                    That's correct, Heaton is first choice but he does have slight competition which might cause a random benching.

                    1. Stoichkov#8
                      • 5 Years
                      10 months, 22 days ago

                      In my friendly he was benched so defo 🙂

                2. bitm2007
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years
                  10 months, 22 days ago

                  I think the game looks great, except for the different preseason friendlies and the 5 friendlies we all get between GW's. I don't see the need for those, we don't get them in FPL so done see the need for them in this.

                  1. Stoichkov#8
                    • 5 Years
                    10 months, 22 days ago

                    well, its handy at beginning as you can check if some possible bandwagon is real deal 🙂
                    I like it.

                  2. Ragabolly
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    10 months, 22 days ago

                    The need is for managers to get familiar with the simulator since the whole game depends on how it runs games. I might decrease the number of friendlies per week to 3 once the season starts.

                    1. Stoichkov#8
                      • 5 Years
                      10 months, 22 days ago

                      But those friendlies wont affect "real" games right?
                      If a player does well in GW1 his chances for start/another return in GW2 are a bit higher, right?
                      But at same time any friendlies after GW1 wont affect GW2. Is that correct?

                      1. Ragabolly
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 11 Years
                        10 months, 22 days ago

                        Right, friendlies don't affect official games, but they are simulated like official games. So they give you an idea about what the game might do next, for example if Kane is injured, who would be the most likely replacement.

                      2. Stoichkov#8
                        • 5 Years
                        10 months, 22 days ago

                        so for example friendly after GW5 will be based on data from those 5 games, right?

                        Also if a player does well in lets say 2-3 games are his chances for start/another returns later on are a bit higher?? Is that correlated?

                        Cheers!
                        And final question. We have 1FT every GW plus TC and BB etc like in FPL but no WC or FH, right? Also there will be no BGW or DGW, correct?

                        There are WC and FH, just not available for GW1. 1 FT every GW with a maximum of 2 FT saved. No blanks or doubles.

      Hi guys. Are you going with DCL in Virtual FPL , if not who's your third forward ?

      DCL got sent off in the preseason game we have all got, and in the three Everton friendly's I arranged (MCI, 2 x ARS), he got 0 goals, 1 assist, 2 yellows and another red.

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Those inj and cards are random imo so ignore it.
        Also City and Arsenal arent easiest games but for 6,4 he is good pick imo. I got him but I know he wont score every game.
        Im on 352 but if you look for cheap forward than DCL, Wood and Jota are best imo.

          10 months, 22 days ago

          They are random but not completely random, card magnets have more chance at getting booked/sent off

            See Virg post right below 😀

    Didn't know DCL was on 7 yellow cards.

    What happens to the threshold given everything that's going on?

    1. Wild Rover
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Why would it change?

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Is it still 10 yellows after 32 matches or something?

        1. Wild Rover
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          Actually there will be a change with regards to the date factor, I guess they will drop that and just go with numbers rather than any date caveat.

          According to the Premier League rules:

          An accumulation of 10 yellow cards results in a two match suspension.
          An accumulation of 15 yellow cards results in a three match suspension.
          If a player reaches a total of 20 yellow cards for the season he/she is required to attend a special hearing at the FA to discuss their on-field behaviour

          However, there is a concept of cut-off dates for yellow cards.

          The ten yellow card count is “reset” on second Sunday in April. It means a player receiving their eleventh yellow card of the season after the second Sunday of April will not receive any ban.

    2. RedLightning - January to M…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      It's still a 2 match ban if a player reaches 10 yellow cards before their team has completed 32 fixtures.
      And a 3 match ban for any player reaching 15 yellow cards before their team has completed all their 38 fixtures.
      Dates do not come into it, just the number of fixtures.

      DCL is indeed on 7 yellow cards, but Everton have already played 29 matches. So he will only receive a ban for reaching 10 yellow cards if he gets 3 more yellows in Everton's next 3 matches.

    3. RedLightning - January to M…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Wild Rover quotes a concept that there is a concept of cut-off dates for yellow cards.
      If this comes from the following link,
      http://www.ablueheart.com/premier-league-rules-for-yellow-cards-accumulation,
      that link also goes on to say that "Note: These rules apply to English league cup as well. So any yellow received in the League cup will be included in this count. And vice-versa, any upcoming suspension will apply to the League cup matches as well."
      The ban for reaching 5, 10, 15 or 20 yellow cards used to be based on matches in the FA Cup and League Cup as well as in the Premier League, but now it only applies to cards received in the Premier League, so I assume that that link is an old one that is now out-of-date.

  9. Labile

    Good idea? Responses appreciated dearly! - / is the players I would be getting!

    D.Henderson / Leno
    Cahill / AWB
    B.Williams /Jaanmat
    Mané / Sané
    Jota / Rashford
    Fleck/ J.Henderson

    I just ain’t sure about getting rid of Mané (have Salah) and of Sané is a good pick.

    1. Labile

    Any member tools or articles won't be much use after gw38 deadline as nobody will be able to act on them even though teams will have 8 or 9 games to go

      Have a heart, Rover. The pro pundits duck ponds don't come cheap.

  11. Labile

    Would I be stupid to have this?

    Martial + Bruno + Rashford.

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      A lot of eggs in a basket which historically has been a lot of “miss” more then “hit” - I would say one or two is ok. Bruno and Rash.

  12. FPL Virgin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Are players like Son and Rashford available on virtual FPL?

    1. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Yes, everyone is available

  13. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…

    Think I'm set for Virtual Fpl after some inane tinkering.

    Final 5050s
    Sarr or H Barnes
    Salah or Mane
    Stevens or O'Connell

    Stashing 1.5 to do Vardy to Auba after gw2

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Barnes
      Salah (doesnt matter long term-pick one and stick)
      Stevens

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Done. Cheers man and good luck. Mane enables Stevens basically, though I can do Salah if I shift Lascelles to a crap 5th (like Hanley)

        1. Stoichkov#8
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          good to have playing players to BB at some point without major changes

  14. Gentle_Turks

    What happened to the price change post on here last few days?

    1. Wild Rover
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      There haven't been any since 6th

      1. Gentle_Turks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        But in that case Rainy usually makes a 'no price changes' post. Why nothing right now? Have FPL scrapped changes until league restarts ?

    2. Weffie von Wobbegong

        This.

        Or you could just go to fplstatistics.co.uk and check out the events for that day to see if there have been any price changes.

  15. Labile

    Sané good pick?

    1. FPL Pillars

    Really dont understand the friendly in virtualfpl.
    I picked 3 different teams and each game had the same teams in it and now im down to 7 friendlies left.

      You might have to scroll down the friendlies page to see the most recent ones you have arranged

    2. Stoichkov#8

    I'm guessing there aren't any league tables in virtual fpl?

    1. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      For now, just the overall league table. If the game goes well, I can add leagues creation in the coming weeks.

  21. Whats the Mata?

    Anyone going both Salah and Mane in your VIRTUAL FPL teams?

    1. Skonto Rigga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years

      Oh yes

      1. Whats the Mata?
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        No Vardy or a City asset then?

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      yep

      1. Whats the Mata?
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        No City assets or Vardy then?

        1. Stoichkov#8
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          City - yes
          Vardy - no (Barnes as Lei Cover)

    3. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      If I had 106m of TV like in FPL I would have gone for both, but 100m leaves me too weak elsewhere.

      1. Whats the Mata?
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        The fixtures are too good to ignore

        1. Stoichkov#8
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          this

  22. Whats the Mata?
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 22 days ago

    One thing I noticed in the Virtual FPL friendlies, Danny Ings was not starting in a few Soton matches simulated.

    With Soton having a kind run of fixtures, anyone worried about Ings starting off the bench?

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      I had him in my first draft. He start in my friendlies but for 1 mil less other players scored same or even more so decided to go without Ings.
      Also dont think he is explosive enough and BPS here works a bit diferent so one goal wont give him max baps every game imo like it was in real FPL.

    2. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      He might get the random benching just because he didn't play all games this season when he was available. But he is of course first choice, and seems to be involved in most attacks.

  23. Stoichkov#8
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 22 days ago

    @Ragabolly
    Are we get any leaked lineups in Virtual FPL? 🙂

    1. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Thought about it and will probably leak some lineups in the following weeks, not this one.

    Thanks for extending the membership until the end of the season.

    I hope this saga does not drag on too long and hurt the site and their staff from the loss of revenue.

    Out of interest how many members does the site have anyway?
    I know there's 1578 in the members league but the number has to be a lot higher that that.

      5 games will be played at 10 minute intervals tonight, the other 5 will be the same tomorrow.

    2. Ragabolly

      First game will be available an hour after the deadline (gives me time to check the update went well). Then four more games released, once every 15 minutes.

      1. Stoichkov#8

            So unfortunately a boring starting game between Palace and Brighton 😀 But more interesting ones to follow

              No players in this one so nice and relaxing start 🙂
              Btw do you also play?

              1. Ragabolly

                10 months, 22 days ago

                I have a test team (id 1 🙂 ) which I need to test all the website development. But can't compete since I know too much 😀 So I picked many non starting players, captaining Haller etc

                1. Ragabolly
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  10 months, 22 days ago

                  Not that Haller is necessarily a bad pick of course.

                2. Stoichkov#8
                  • 5 Years

                  Heh, true that 🙂
                  Also wondering if a player gets injured will we get info about for how long he is out and if we do does it mean he is stright back to first team (assuming he was nailed before)??

                  Thanks again for all that! Esp as you just do it for others as you dont play. It means a lot to me man! Keeps me sane in this situation we all are in.

                  1. Ragabolly

                    Yes every injury comes with its duration, and I will also build an injury/suspensions page soon.

                    Coming straight to first team depends on the quality and nailed-onness of the player, as well as the form of his replacement. But you can expect the very nailed on players to be remain first choice always.

      I went even bigger at the back and big in mid.
      I love that we have just 100mil so every team will be diferent and game more interesting.

    If you still have WC and BB left, assuming the GW37 deadline comes along without football resuming, will you be using WC in 37, to be able play BB in 38?

      yes but will wait for the info if FPL gonna add some GWs. If no than defo WC GW37 and BB GW38.

        I’m assuming we won’t have any new info by then.

        That’s the gamble we’ll need to take, who thinks we’re getting more GW added, and who thinks it’ll be a bumper GW38 only.

          I will probably have team ready for BB by than so not sure I'll need that WC but I think FPL will tell us a bit more by than imo

    One thing I failed to mention earlier about Virtual FPL, there are only two players whose positions are different from real FPL:

    Fernandinho to CB
    Lundstram to CM

    I had to change those two players in particular to suit how the game simulation works.
