Sign up today to secure the pre-season rate for FFScout Premium Membership

Fantasy Football Scout Premium Memberships for the 2020/21 season are still available at the pre-season cost of £17.50 – but time is running out on this offer.

Subscriptions will rise to the regular season price of £19.99 on August 31 so, if you haven’t already, make sure to sign up over the next week in order to secure the best-value rate.

The yearly fee of £17.50 works out at an equivalent of less than £1.50 a month (or 5p a day!) as, instead of expiring on June 1 as was previously the case, these rolling annual subscriptions now cover a full 12-month period.

That’s better value than our rivals are offering for the equivalent all-access Premium Membership package.

If you prefer to dip your toe into the water rather than plunge right in, however, we are continuing to offer rolling monthly subcriptions for just £2.99 per month.

Existing registered users can upgrade via this link. New users, who are yet to get a registered account, can sign up via this link.

Payments can be made through Paypal or via Stripe using debit or credit cards.

Does early FPL team news really provide an advantage?

What Do I get for my money?

Well, you’ll be joining legions of other Fantasy managers by signing up, including former Fantasy Premier League winners Adam Levy, Simon March and Tom Fenley.

Thousands upon thousands of FPL bosses take advantage of our subscriptions and sign up every year, using the stats and tools to aid their Gameweek planning.

PRO PUNDIT ARTICLES

You’ll get exclusive content from some of the best Fantasy managers in the business, including Hall of Fame number one Fábio Borges, ex-champion Simon March, five-time top 1k finisher Tom Freeman, three-time top 200 finisher Lateriser and six-time top 5k finisher Zophar.

If that wasn’t enough, Fantasy Football Scout’s founding father, Mark Sutherns, is returning to the site to supply articles and video appearances throughout the season. Again, only Premium Members will get unrestricted access to Mark’s content.

And stay tuned in the coming days for more exciting announcements on that front – as well as updates on a new, mobile-friendly design.

RATE MY TEAM AND PROJECTIONS

Our Projections and Rate My Team tools are both live for the new season, so you can head over there now to start building your teams ahead of 2020/21 and see how many points our algorithm thinks you’ll score.

These features were both refined last year, with RMT’s Professor – aka Chris Atkinson – elaborating on the changes in a Hot Topic.

SEASON TICKER

Also live for the new season is our Season Ticker.

Premium Members can sort by fixture difficulty and find out which teams’ matches rotate well.

Disagree with the Fantasy Football Scout difficulty ratings? Add you own to customise your experience.

FLAT-TRACK BULLY TOOL

Our Flat-Track Bully tool was a new addition last season, with subscribers now able to identify Fantasy assets with good records against specific clubs.

This will help you pinpoint players who perhaps perform better against weaker opposition and even those who thrive against the top teams, like Raúl Jiménez famously did in 2018/19.

HEAD-TO-HEAD COMPARISONS

Compare both teams and players head to head, with over 100 key statistics to study side by side.

PLAYER AND TEAM STATS

There are hundreds upon hundreds of player and team statistics available, which can help guide your Fantasy transfer decisions.

MATCH ANALYSIS

Analysis of every Premier League match (going back to 2011/12!), together with charts which plot average positions and our collection of heatmaps for touches, shots and chances created, among other statistics.

CUSTOM STATS TABLES

Premium Members can also create custom tables based on the data available and share them with other subscribers.

Perhaps the most famous of these is Joe’s Goals Imminent table, which looks to predict which underperforming assets will find the net next.

TESTIMONIES

2018/19 Fantasy Premier League champion Adam Levy was a paid-up Premium Member of our site and he discussed what tools of ours he finds most useful in an interview after his triumph.

In previous seasons we’ve helped FPL winners Tom Fenley and Simon March, while in 2015/16 we were thrilled to see Ed Masters – the winner of that year’s Members’ League – finish third in the overall rankings.

In 2017/18, Paul Gee went one better. He won our Members’ League and finished second, losing out to champion Yusuf Sheikh by just eight points.

    AMN 🙁

    That's it Vinny. You don't look secure at all now. Welcome back, Doherty 🙂

      What a waste, sigh...

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der

        Isn't it? False hope all this long..

          1 month, 25 days ago

          If they had sign that Napoli guy, I wouldn't have been worried but surely Maitland won't leave one team for another just to sit on bench.

          Doherty and Vinagre to Boly and Saiss is what I'm thinking of, Doherty is different gravy though.

          1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Yep he won't warm thr bench for long imo. Vinny is attractive if he can play 90s, which i can't see happening now.

            2 wolves defenders without Doherty doesn't sound right to me. Plus City will surely score against them in gw2? Your call.

  2. Sanchit

    A. Auba + ASM
    B. Son + Jimenez

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years

      A because of Auba

    2. Holmes

    People saying that AMN might play in midfield for Wolves. Vinagre still the first choice at LWB. Lmao.

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      He may still be the first choice, for now. I want sure starter for my 4.5 def. Better get Taylor, justin or kwp now

      1. The Suspended One

        Vinagre is rubbish

        1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yep but not his team and imagine if he starts week in, week out

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Yeah too good to be true in the end I guess. I’m staying away from him and Justin

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I always thought he is RB/RWB/CM but consensus here is different, what do I know 😀

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        He’s played on the left quite a few times; not altogether dissimilar skill set as Jonny, I’d be surprised if he was a depth MF signing rather than an emergency Lb signing. If they sign a lb, what do they do with them when Jonny returns? Seems like some good business.. could be wrong, we’ll know soon enough

        1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          This. When jonny returns, he'll be gradually eased into midfield and become Mr utility for the team, back up everywhere.

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years

            Per ESPN:

            The report suggests the clubs are in advanced talks for the versatile midfielder/full-back and that the deal would be for four years.

            Arsenal are in desperate need to raise funds, and the report says Maitland-Niles won't be part of Mikel Arteta's plans. But Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo sees the England youngster as the type of role player he needs in light of the potential long-term absence of defender Jonny due to an ACL injury.

    Guys How's this team

    Ramsdale
    Justin Saliba TAA

    Saint Maxim Mane Auba Soucek

    Kane CheAdams Vardy

    Bench : Ryan, Walker Peters, Ferguson, Stephens

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Mane/Salah 50-50 call, but I'd rather mo since his EO will hit the roof gw1

      Very strong attack, love it. Monitor comm shield for Saliba

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I’d avoid Ramsdale and just go Ryan/button to upgrade MF

      Justin is a FT waiting to happen
      Che to Mitrovic imho

  5. davies
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Which option?

    A) Bavies + Mitchell
    B) Vinagre + Taylor

    TAA Doherty ***** ***** Ferguson

    I will have 0.5 to upgrade in GW3 after doing Auba > KDB...

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      KWP and Taylor

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        This and that's my back 5 lol

  6. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Thoughts on this?

    Dubravka (Nyland)
    TAA VVD KWP (Ferguson Mitchell)
    Salah(C) Auba ASM Armstrong Soucek
    Werner Mitro (Martial)

    Auba becomes KDB in GW3

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I held onto this kinda team many days.. double 4.0sat the back and martial on the bench, with soucek starting.

      So very good imo, but question is if spurs boys or Vardy explode then the knees will struggle lol

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Not bad, don’t like nylands chances of getting two injuries ahead of him this year

    For people who have been members before,
    How well does the RMT tool work?

    a. Word of God
    b. much more accurate than one's eye test and one's instinct
    c. sometimes accurate sometimes not
    d. mostly inaccurate. if one follows soccer closely then this tool isn't very useful

    🙂

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      It’s not “accurate” so much as a starting place for transfer decisions that factors fixtures and value more than form or eye test

    2. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      A great planning tool

    3. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Somewhere between B and C.

  8. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 25 days ago

    If Thiago/Keita take over the starting role it would be a huge boost for Salah over anybody else. Ever since Klopp changed his tactics it feels like Salah has been at less of an advantage, with TAA and Robbo spamming crosses - attacking those aren't his strength - and Firmino the only creative presence in the middle. Both players are an upgrade on Wijnaldum in terms of creativity, and surely Salah could then return to a 25+ goal season? Was thinking this when debating whether to keep Salah or not.

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Could be. Whatever the case it's too dangerous to go without Salah gw1

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I'm set on him for now but it's a him or Auba situation for me.

        1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Get Both. Easy

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            I like my three premium strikers better.

      2. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Can feel the pressure...

        1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
          • 8 Years

            • 7 Years

            Maybe I should get Keita to cover him 😉

    Mccarthy
    Taa vinagre justin
    Auba salah son ASM maddison
    Mitro werner

    Subs: nyland, ferguson, kwp, bamford.

    Need some help here. Actually i dont want bamford but somehow there is no one at 5.0 or lesser that can start or as my bench?

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Vinagre won’t start, Justin a ft waiting to happen, don’t want double saints def

      I’d go Ryan/Button, ditch bamford or ASM and upgrade Maddison

      1. Reyson
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Vinagre wont start? Lol where u hear from. He will start for sure.

        . Ryan ? Lol vs chelsea my god. I will jus remove kwp and keep mccarthy

        1. The Suspended One

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          I prefer Ryan/button KWP over McCarthy Nyland (third choice at terrible club) & Lampety, but Brighton/ Southampton is surely the way to go for 9m unless Saliba starts

      2. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 25 days ago

        By the time Justin loses his spot many of us have played the first wild card (or are planning on playing it soon) so it's not that big of a deal

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Downgrade him to 4.5 and use the cash to upgrade Vinagre.

      1. Reyson
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Why vinagre? I dont get it.

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Unfortunately they are signing Maitland. You can keep and hope for best but his chance of starting has gone down.

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            I do concede that he could play when they play 3-4-3 IF AMN plays MF but I think that’s 50-50

        2. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Using the Bamford cash, you can still get a decent defense of Trent, Saiss, Egan, Walker Pieters, Ferguson

    3. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Having 2 bench fodder that plays is enough to begin with. Bamford to 4.5 and upgrade def. Vinagre prob not gonna start with ANM coming in to Wolves, Ferg not nailed and may not play and not fan of Leicester def.

      1. Bank$y
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Maitland signing is irrelevant to Vinagre starting. I still expect V to start.

        1. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          You’re gonna be disappointed

  10. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 25 days ago

    I doubt Saiss is worth the .5 I'll have to dig up to upgrade Vinagre to him so KWP it is I guess. Doesn't feel great to start with triple Saints though, even if one leaves the week after

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      That’s why I’m going Ryan/Button/KWP over McCarthy

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I prefer Lloris, haven't got McCarthy. Ings -> Martial and Armstrong

        1. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yeah I think Armstrong is the one I’d question. I’d nailed, he’s be in my team, but he misses quite a few matches

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Considering SMax over him but I want to see if Bruce plays 5-4-1 or 4-2-3-1

            1. The Suspended One
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Yeah both going to miss the odd game tbf

      2. Wild Card this...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Looking at the first 4 fixtures - I can't see any clean sheet potential for Ryan (maybe they can nick 0:0 away to Newcastle), while Southampton could squeeze even two clean sheets...

        1. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Not planning on wildcard if anytime soon, 2 tough fixtures out of first 6 and 3 in first 9

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I think he will be worth it over 7-8 games or so but as you said, finding that 0.5 is tricky.

      I'm trying to avoid Walker Pieters as well, I don't trust Saints defense anymore.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Difficult to analyze the fixtures but I plan a WC10 and if Wolves keep 6-7 CS and Saints keep like 4 than maybe KWP is worth it? Just as possible they keep 3 or so though, difficult to find the faith in the defense but perhaps we'll have to.

        I considered the Boly + Saiss over Doherty + KWP you proposed but I haven't got it in me to avoid Doherty's attacking returns. I figure the latter outscores the former anyways

    3. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Saiss is a goal threat in box. I think he's second best Wolves Defender to own FPL wise. Seems to do quite well on bps tally too

  11. Manumana
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Whats your thought on starting with these Gw1. Can down grade Mane perhaps & the move funds around to pick up the early form players

    McCarthy
    TAA Doherty Vinagre Furguson
    Salah Mane Auba ASM
    Ings Mitro

    Nyland Stephens Davis Taylor

    Thanks

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der

      Can't really fault that team

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      That's a very good team. But not enough starters for me.

      Ferguson is a speculative starter at 4.0 and Stephens offers so little.

      I think having a bunch of 12.0s hurts your team balance. Two at most which allows a more even spread. No Spurs or Chelsea with their strong opening fixtures seems like an oversight as well.

    3. jk_footyfan
      • 1 Year

      Not impressed by any of the attacking Chelsea assets?

      1. Manumana
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I am yes. But with 2 or 3 players from Chelsea i have my eye on. Was thinking to watch 1st & make a move. Unless say Werner goes nuts in pre season.

        I agree with Camzy too. Mane really a place holder for a cheap player be it Bruno, Greenwood, Zyich etc. Freeing up funds for moves early on

        1. Manumana
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Taylor will be coming in gw2 also

          1. Manumana
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Furguaon ovs depending on pre season playing time too

    4. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      It's unbalanced you know that.
      I'd take VVD Son over Mane Ferguson any day for example.

      Son can become Bruno/Chelsea Midfielder when we get some information about them

  12. Amey

    I love the uncertainty around Vinagre. Now fingers crossed for competition for Greenwood.

    Lots of people planning all sorts of FTs and WCs like everything is going to stay static after 2 weeks; planning can only go so far and any number of things can change priorities or upset those moves. It’s a trap.

      Agreed. Really don't want forced transfers.

    2. Amey

      Can work for short term IMO (1/2 Gw's)
      If things go horribly wrong we have a WC 😉

        And then GW 8 rolls around and the template is smashed and hits ensue

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Template shifts aren't that abrupt tbh. Only time template sets up abruptly is start of the season IMHO.
          It's not easy to analyse atm what would be the template in GW 2/3 than it'd be in GW 8 to analyse what would it be in GW 10/12 for example.

          Having said that, I'm going for many players who I'd like to have long term so trying to reduce transfer focus as much as I can. Let's see 🙂

            Yeah but I want to be out ahead of it though; starting out 2/3 fts or a wc behind isn’t the way imho. I’m going 442 TAA/VVD/Doc for the first time because it’s going to be easier to set and forget def rather that burn transfers changing team structures.

              😆
              Same here ..
              Only 2 attacking spots in my 11 below 6.5m

              These are spots which takes most FT's for my teams historically so trying to keep them at 2 by going 4 atb.

                Yeah and I’m hanging onto Mitro even if he has some bumps; I’ll rotate the 5.5 mid but otherwise it’s premiums only

                  • 2 Years

                  Yup
                  Mitro should stay on the pitch till GW 8 though ...
                  He's a hothead & can be a YC magnet ....

      Love your username and agree with your logic

      Still building a team around a GW10 WC, it's nice to have a general idea in mind. It's important to be flexible though

      Trying to decide between,

      A) Son (9M) and Ayew (6M)
      B) Armstrong (5.5M) and Werner (9.5M)

      Any preference on who is likely to score more?

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        I’d go Mitro over ayew and A because of rotation with Armstrong

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1 month, 25 days ago

          A) Ziyech + Son +0.5m
          B) Aubameyang + Armstrong

          I still think A is better. It's crazy that Son costs 3.0m less than Auba. Son when fit and starting is elite. He also ended last season costing 9.7m. People were happy paying close to 10m for him and he starts this season, second season Mourinho, at 9m.

            A because it’s basically a free punt and easy ft to Pulisic

            Auba is a differential not essential

                  B/C set pieces, or you think he’s nailed? I’m worried lamps may rotate him a bit unless he can keep the press going; replacing willians work rate won’t be straightforward

              You can.

              A) Aubameyang, Antonio, Barnes
              B) Fernandes, Werner, Soucek

            A is miles better

            Sounds like you're pretty set on going w/o Auba, so go for it imo

            Son at 9 is an absolute bargain, world class player in a second season Mou team. Difficult to captain is his only drawback

          4. Gleys11
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Excellent point regarding Son’s price.
              Do you reckon he is better value than Werner?

                Yes. I do. Werner still a bit of an unknown and we don't know where he'll play either. Could be playing wide forward with Giroud or Tammy for all we know...

                  I’d almost prefer that tbf, I think he goes back and forth between #9 and playing to the left of the striker until pulisic comes back in GW 4/5

              Auba is best © option in GW 2 imo

                Not Fernandes? I plan to C Salah GW1 and Fernandes GW2.

                  I'm planning to bring him in GW 2 yes. But when you see Palace & WHU there is only one bad Defense. Palace should be well drilled at least at the start.

                  The GW 2 fixture is reason why I'm going with Auba tbh. WHU takes a lot of shots. He's generally clinical too

                  1. Camzy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years
                    1 month, 25 days ago

                    End of last season's stats say that bad defense is Palace.

              Don't use a Fernandes placeholder. It's not worth for a one week punt. No one outstanding in GW1. I've tried several variations on this strategy and it always looks ugly.

              1. Inazuma X1
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Even if the player gets 8 points, it's better to have a placeholder but I guess it's risky

                1. Inazuma X1
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 25 days ago

                  Well not 8 points specifically but anything over 5+

                  How much do you value a FT in terms of points?

                  1. Camzy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years

                    4 points. There are no genuinely free transfers in the first few weeks.

                    Basically, this player has to score more than a 4.5m defender + 4 points to be worth it. I don't see anyone that could be a sure banker. The player that could deliver might be someone like Pepe or Willian but it's too hard to call. And if they score a brace do you still want to gut your (highest scoring) player for Fernandes?

                Disagree on Soucek being useless. He can rotate with 4.5ms if need be but I think he may surprise. The guy has a ton of goals in him. 13 goals in 39 games. And his underlying stats say it's no fluke either.

                  I had him and Antonio before fixtures released. We’ll have to see.. week one aside that’s as tough a schedule as I’ve ever seen, Wolves and City their two home games, can’t see much opportunity for any hammers

                  My current thinking is he might be a keeper - he'll prob be on my bench for GWs2 and 3 or longer. If he's not performing, he can be a canny part of 2FT for Foden.

              Probably but maybe not GW1. Commie Shield maybe too early for Gabriel. The choice of keeper may depend on who links best with the new CB pairing too, so for me, I need to see how the Arsenal defence lines up and how much understanding there is before committing.

              I'll also want to know if Saliba is in, when Mari is back, whether Saka starts and how many minutes Nketiah will get if Laca leaves.

                Saka almost certainly pushed to bench by Willian, but good point on Saliba, he’s nailed and he’s the value defender everyone wants

            Roll the dice with both Werner and Ziyech out of the gate?

            McCarthy Button
            TAA Bellerin Bavies Ferguson Mitchell
            Salah Auba Son Ziyech Soucek
            Werner Mitro Brewster

            If it looks like one of Ferguson/Mitchell will start GW1...

            Would you start them and bench Bruno instead of getting a placeholder?

              Home to Saints, yes I'd do that.

              I don't fancy them to keep CS and benching 10.5 doesn't feel right

              Hate the Bruno placeholder strategy. So yes from me.

            Which team rotates well with Palace?

              Newcastle

              Newcastle and maybe Leicester

                Who do you expect to keep more CS - Leicester or Newcastle?

                  Also depends - will LEI lose defenders, buy defenders, mend broken defenders?

                  I trust Newcastle

            I wonder how quickly Operation: Target West Brom and Fulham will become a thing. Norwich managed to hold out the first 7 GWs or so.

              I'm looking to Auba to fill his boots at Fulham on the first day.

            Can anyone RMT please.. dont know if i should start with Kane or Werner. Currently on Kane.

              Keep Werner + 1M for the first 4 GWs. Then buy Kane for at least the next 4. That way, you hit the best fixtures for both.

                Blimey, I'd look at it the other way round. Kane for first 3, giving you a chance to see how Werner's settling in (and getting Pulisic back).

                  I don't like Kane's first four from an offensive standpoint nearly as much as Werner's, and I don't really subscribe to the "adapting to PL" theory, especially for a player who's been here for a month or more already.

              Justin and Vinagre transfers waiting to happen

            Auba or Salah for GW1 (C)?

              Depends if Leeds strengthen at the back.

            Have 1m spare.

            Who to upgrade?
            KWP or Soucek?

            Or both?
