Pre-season price offer extended for FFScout Premium Membership

Due to popular demand and taking inspiration from soft furniture retailer sales across the land, we are pleased to say that Fantasy Football Scout Premium Memberships for the 2020/21 season are still available at the pre-season cost of £17.50 – but only for a little while longer.

We have given our users an extra week to sort out their subscriptions for the new campaign but this really is last-chance saloon territory, as yearly Premier Memberships will rise to the regular season price of £19.99 on September 7.

So, if you haven’t already, make sure to sign up before that point 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 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.

SIGN UP FOR THE NEW SEASON HERE


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

We’re continuing to reinvest resources into the site, building a team of talented contributors for the new season (from all of our Career Hall of Fame top three to the returning Mark Sutherns) and working on an exciting new design for the Premium Members Area, complete with new tools and features.

We’re also dishing out £2,500-worth of prizes in the 2020/21 campaign – more details of that available here.

Our video below runs down just some of the benefits that subscribers will enjoy in 2020/21 and previews what you can expect the Premium Members Area to look like after its makeover:



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 top three Fábio BorgesStephen Harrap and Darren Wiles, 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.

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.


Be sure to check out all the other benefits of signing up as a Premium Member here. A full FAQ on our Premium Members’ Area is also available here.

If you’ve any feedback or suggestions of content that you’d like to see added to the Premium Members’ Area, then please feel free to drop us a line at support@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk.

    Soucek-gate plus the blanks for the mancs now leaves 7 players who would almost certainly be in my draft as missing for one week (KDB, Laporte, Bruno, Martial, Greenwood, Soucek, Charlie Taylor)

    Getting dangerously close to planned early WC tipping point

    Might be there already tbf

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      WK 1 BB?
      WK 2 WC?

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        First part - not for me - too much opportunity cost vs a properly planned BB in a DGW (8x scores instead of 4x etc) plus have no clue about who'll be in what form in GW1 to know who to target on the extra 4 slots

        Second Part - definitely not ruling it out though

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Soucek will surely get another test before kickoff

  2. Lanley Staurel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Chelsea keeper Arrizabalaga only £5m. Why no love?

    1. Red Red Robins
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Sooner have an FC player in goal mate 🙂

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Great joke for top of page!

      Quality banter mate

    4. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      If Frank has no love, I has no love.

    5. Soto Ayam
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Because he's Chelsea keeper Arrizabalaga

    6. RECKLESS
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      He aint first choice considering his poor form

      1. Lanley Staurel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Thanks for the only sensible reply thus far. Ive not stayed close to Chelsea at all so completely missed this. My bad. Cheers again.

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years

          😆
          Tbh, anyone would see that as a bait.
          He's a not good enough. As simple as that.

          Chelsea got robbed.

    Help with this please

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Okay. Add players.

      1. linkafu
        • 1 Year

        Sorry bugg look down

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year

      Looks very swollen.

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        What are you doing here ?
        Go make more signings !

    3. Red Red Robins
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Over budget

    4. Amey
      • 2 Years

      Always admired özil in big games

  4. Galza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    I think I’m just going to get another 5 mil mid and bring Soucek back into my team when he’s back.

    It will totally destroy my team structure if I don’t.

    Any suggestions...?

    1. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Just keep him and use your bench if needed - I think he'll probably play anyway

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        He is my bench mate 🙂

        1. Goonsquad245
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Then leave him on there or downgrade to a 4.5!

          1. Galza
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Sorry, I need him for GW1 as I’ve got Bruno on my bench. 🙂

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      When he’s back from where?

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Isolation

      2. THE WERNER DELUSION
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        hospital? he's tested positive for one of the deadliest diseases we've ever seen!

        1. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Lol

        2. KujaliaFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          He tested negative.

          Coronavirus is nowhere near the deadliest diseases we've ever seen.

          There are diseases such Smallpox, Ebola, Diabetes, Cancer, Measles, and the Flu, which are much more deadly.

          1. THE WERNER DELUSION
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            my post was satirical, don't be so serious brother

        3. Amey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Fake news
          Definitely worst disease

    3. Red Red Robins
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Tempted by Bissouma and giving me an extra 0.5

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I could go that route I suppose

    4. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Noble or Ritchie I guess

      1. THE WERNER DELUSION
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Berge might get a few chances

      2. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I was thinking Noble or maybe Rice.
        It’s not like they’ll be there for long.

      3. linkafu
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Heard Ritchie involve in C.Wilson transfer

    5. linkafu
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Try an upgrade to ST Maximin or Amstrong if possible

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        It will completely mess up my plans.
        I’m a Bruno bencher...

    6. SAY MY NAME
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      what's happened to Soucek?

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 26 days ago

        In quarantine

      2. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        COVID

        1. SAY MY NAME
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          ah ok, cheers chaps

          1. Flynny
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            He should be OK to play.

            I'd just replace with berge...

            1. Galza
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              He could be good. Thanks

    7. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      This is what I’ve got

      McCarthy
      TAA / Robbo / Tierney / Dier (Mitch)
      Auba / Son / Pereira / 5.0 (Bruno)
      Werner / Mitro (Davis)

  5. linkafu

    Help with this please:
    A- Alli+ 2 defenders 4.5
    B- Barnes + 2 defenders 5.0

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Clear A

      1. linkafu
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 26 days ago

        No expectations of Mou roulette?

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Slight chance with the heavy fixtures early on but Barnes is even more of a risk imo

  6. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 26 days ago

    I will just wait patiently to pick my final squad before just before GW1 deadline.

    All these quarantine, fitness and new arrivals going to end up in endless tinkering when we do not know exactly which players will be available.

    Internationals also on the brink.

    1. Inazuma X1

      Hi Sherlock

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

      Cool - see you in 9 days then.

  7. The 12th Man
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Soucek should be safe to start as no one gets near him in the box.

    1. linkafu
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      If he’s covid negative

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        It was a joke. Never mind.

        1. thericeking
          • 3 Years

          Woosh

  8. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    X
    TAA Dier Vinagre 4.0 X
    Salah Auba X Soucek 4.5
    Werner Martial Adams

    A) Ryan, KWP & Alli/Ziyech
    B) McCarthy, Justin & Alli/Ziyech
    C) McCarthy, Robbo & ASM

    If Soucek misses GW1 then C is probably not an option as I'll have to upgrade Soucek to ASM.

    Thoughts?

    1. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Exact going with same team almost & currently on B with Alli,might switch A with still alli but upgrading soucek.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Cheers leaning towards A/B as Alli/Ziyech improve flexibility!

  9. VAR United
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    VDB 7m

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Good enticing price

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Is precisely the correct term. Won't be high ownership ahead of GW2, but if he starts and scores the bandwagon will be insane!

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Can't say anything before we know about starting 11 now.

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      ?

    3. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      One to watch out for if he nails down a starting spot!

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Very nice. I think that is an easy bench option for blank GW1 instead of Bruno, Martial, Rashford or Greenwood costing more 🙂

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Not if he gets less gametime than Foden.

        Cash at Villa also added, 5m.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Was gonna consider him at 4.5, annoying.

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 26 days ago

          I reckon VDB will start from the off. No point having a player like that as backup on the bench.

          His comments suggest he will not be deployed as a DM either.

          "Last week I spoke to Solskjær. It was about private things, but also about football — he said he knew exactly what my biggest strengths are and told me that he wants me to be in and around the 16 [metre] box at Manchester United too,’ said Van de Beek.

  10. The 12th Man
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Shalke in talks with Everton for JonJoe Kenny to return for a second loan spell.
    If we don’t sign another rb Coleman will be nailed.

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Handy price too - what about sidibe?

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Ah it was a loan

      2. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years

        Sidibe’s loan wasn’t renewed.

      Surely you have another way of freeing up that 0.5m?

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Yeah I would if Soucek is out

    3. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Dangerous going without the highest owned player. Find the cash elsewhere

  13. KujaliaFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Soucek actually tested negative for the coronavirus.

    Do the protocols really prevent him from starting in GW1?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I think if he tests negative again he'll be cleared atleast that's what Ben Dinnery also thinks.

    2. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Would probably depend if the quarantine period overlapped wk 1 Even then will he be risked with no team training up to wk 1? Who knows!

    3. KujaliaFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      This is certainly going to be an interesting FPL season.

  14. Stormbringer22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Wolves fans, what is the deal with Podence? Is he worth punting on? His lack of nailed-ness worries me, especially given that he competes with Jota and Neto at LW. Better going with a safer £5.5 option or...?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Wolves mid is a wait & see but I expect atleast one of Podence, Jota or Traore to offer good value this season.

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Wolves offer a lot of value in both mids and defenders. If he gets a more-or-less regular spot in the starting 11, Podence is a steal at £5.5.

  15. Best 'season keeper' picks
    Geoff
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Who is your top 'season keeper' this season?

    *Obviously no one is essential
    *Obviously no one is actually a must have
    *Obviously BGWs and DGWs mean most players won't be in our team for 38 GWs.

    Still, who do you think will be a fairly nailed and key part of your team this season?

      Trent.
      Would say Kev, but he doesn't come in until GW3.

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      TAA

    3. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Taa
      Pulisic
      Martial
      Vinagre

      Button

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        You’ll be lucky to have Pulisic in your team the whole season with his injury record.
        Think he’ll be a player coming in and out of teams all season.

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years

          Fit = IN 😉

    4. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Simple. But it’s two. KDB & TAA.

    5. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      A Chelsea Mid
      Martial or Werner I think one of them will have a great season.
      TAA

      1. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Yeah Martial for me is a great price. I think he'd be my pick

    6. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Most likely Salah, TAA unless Liverpool really do drop off a cliff. Maybe Wolves defenders too.

      1. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I'm a bit worried about Wolves. I think their squad size could be really challenged with Europe, and they've been massively lucky with injuries

        1. Goonsquad245
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          I don't think Wolves are in Europe this season?

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years

            You're right

    7. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      currently thinking of getting TAA, Bruno and KDB early and just leaving them there - so them

      all 3 tick along and then get random hauls in random games - I don't really like captaining them over a prime fixture Salah/Mane/Sterling but they are super consistent

    8. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Erm no one - not starting with Trent or Kdb but they will be with me for the majority

    9. Forlorn Hope
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 26 days ago

      My 4.0 bench keeper who is out on loan to a Championship team. That way he won’t go down in value as he will be permanently red flagged! Nothing more annoying than seeing a Button drop to 3.9!

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Makes no difference how far he drops if you don't sell him.

      2. KujaliaFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        My Button could drop to 0.0 and I wouldn't care because I'm happy to have Ryan and Button for the whole season. You only need to worry about price drops if you want to sell.

        1. fish&chips
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          No second keeper on bench boost then?

          1. KujaliaFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Hmmm, good point.

            That ruins my cunning plan, milord.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Still think your setup is a good one. Just WC to another keeper prior to BB. Realistically button won't drop more than 0.1 or 0.2

              1. KujaliaFC
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Yeah. Perhaps later in the season.

                My diatribe against the scheme to have a Championship keeper is invalid though.

                Hopefully Button maintains his value until close to GW16.

      3. KujaliaFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        My Button at 0.0 is better than your Championship keeper at 4.0 because when my Ryan doesn't start, my Button plays.

        When your doesn't start you get 0 points.

        1. KujaliaFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          "your doesn't" above should read "your [insert name here] doesn't".

          The FPL input sanitizer removed it because I used angle brackets.

    10. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I don’t think any particular player will be nailed for me apart from maybe my goalkeepers.

      Think the premium spaces should be nailed on throughout the season but no one player is cemented in . So player hopping between Salah/Aubamayang/Sterling/KDB/Fernandes between two spots.

      1. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Yeah I'll be looking to be flexible moving around the top players this season

      2. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I do have a strategy which involves keeping 5 of the squad for the season, if I can keep to it. They are:
        TAA, Robbo, KDB, Martial, Werner.

        1. ⓙⓚⓙⓚ
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Same but with TAA, VVD, Salah, Werner (even though I hate him sometimes), and maybe Auba

      3. Gentlemen Crier

    11. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      KDB had at least one haul whenever I took him out for 'tough' fixtures last season so probably him.

    12. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Brewster (if loaned)

      1. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Any more rumours about where he could be going?

        1. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Huddersfield

        2. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Nope, last thing I heard was him being linked with a move to Sheffield United

        3. Gleys11
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Liverpool echo - Klopp loves Brewster and has been impressed with how he has done since start of the year. They don't have to make a decision yet and it's clear he'll be involved in some way at the start of season given injuries elsewhere. The early League Cup rounds will also give him a chance to impress before transfer window closes.

            So if that’s the case may have to do without him until the transfer deadline or else he will be taking up a crucial Liverpool spot.

      2. Hairy Potter
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        TAA, KDB and Salah probably for the most part.

      3. The Legend Squad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Trent
        Robbo
        Mane/Salah
        Auba

      4. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Trent is my season keeper. But everyone will have him

        I have a feeling Martial will have a good season

        1. Chemical76
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          TAA 53.9% ownership

      5. baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        TAA was the only player last year and without injuries probably no changes to that. Loaned Brewster might be difficult to sell. But even he might go especially if there is possibility to cash in "serious" money in January for example.

      6. zdrojo187
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Black Panther

      7. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Just Trent but hopefully McCarthy too

      8. Alchim1sT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        so far only TAA
        so much uncertainty regarding the other premium options
        the one who will come next to a season keeper at the moment is KDB, just a high level steady eddy who is fixture proof

        If Chelsea fulfill their potential Werner might be also a consideration

      9. Zladan
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        TAA, Ferguson & Nyland.

      10. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Assuming a subscript of "excluding TAA who goes without saying"...

        Finding it hard to get away from Bruno - his game just overlaps too perfectly with the FPL scoring system to ignore, and he hasn't been priced properly due to a truncated season

        When you get a long-range sharp-shooting, set-piece-monopolising, bonus-point-dominating, laser-guided assisting, attacking talisman for an attacking team - for 10.5 - it's sometimes better not to look the gift horse in the mouth

        Fortunately the whole "penalty merchant" schtick (12 *non-penalty* attacking returns in 14 games) - combined with the fact that he physically can't sustain his current scoring rate (317 points on a 38 game season) - seems to have thankfully distracted more than I would have expected from at least some of his promise

        I'll take an assumption of 20-25% regression in output & the 250 points it still delivers for 10.5 any day of the week

        1. Pep bites Kun

      Soucek is fundamental to the way ill set up next week so this covid need is a bit of a pain.

      My understanding is that he will likely have another test and if negative should be good to play.

      So no need to panic. Is that right? Thanks

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Yes correct as of now there's no need to panic unless he tests positive.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Club's trying to flog him to Bournemouth, so - no.

      2. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        I heard he might be going back to Bournemouth to help get Wilson.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Wilson could make ASM a slightly better option. They desperately need a striker.

          1. Forever In Our Shadow
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Without doubt.

            • 8 Years

            They're trying to sign Fraser too. Fraser and Wilson back together again - would be very tidy business for Toon if they get it done. But ... Ashley 🙁

      3. Hairy Potter
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Even if he stays, it's not clear where he'd play if Bruce players his preferred 4 at the back. Plus Newcastle don't really get many penalties.

    15. TimoTime
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Latest draft…. still not sure:

      Mcarthy
      TAA, Vinagre, Justin
      (A)uba, Salah, Son, ASM, Armstrong
      Jimi, Werner

      (Button, Mitchell, C.Taylor, Davis)

      Happy to do Salah > Bruno GW2 given fixtures and wait GW3 for City

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        I think you will regret Salah -> Bruno in the medium term, but might pay off GW2!

      A) Why is everyone going for Salah over Mane?

      B) How nailed is Eze on set pieces?

      C) Kane or Son?

      D) Spurs defence double up?

      1. Goonsquad245
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        A) Because he scores more points and people expect him to continue doing so, and they are the same price
        B) No idea
        C) Son + 1.5m unless Kane reveals himself as a captain option again
        D) Depends which ones, but they're cheap enough for it to work

      2. The Legend Squad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        A) Partly because Salah’s stats are slightly better, and he’s on pens, but partly on groupthink.
        B) No idea
        C) Son for me, extra points for being a Mid push it over the edge
        D) Nah

      3. THE WERNER DELUSION
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        A) because he's on pens and people are scared of ownership - not much in it
        B) too soon to tell, probably just on corners if he is
        C) Son
        D) flirted with the idea, but not for me - Kane AND Son or Son AND Alli could become a thing and you'd be blocking it

      4. Amey

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        A) Because he's better and the favourite for golden boot, whereas Mane's about 7th.
        B) No Idea
        C) Son
        D) I wouldn't budget for it, but if I had spare budget, then sure.

        Very similar to mine except I've gone Kane & Barnes over son and Werner and Armstrong over Douglas.

        Your bench is pretty weak but I personally like it big at the back

      2. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Also, maybe consider another 4.5 defender over KWP. Not sure about soton double defence. I've gone for vinagre for the time being but a bit risky for nailedness

        1. tricpic
          • 11 Years

        A) Although I think mane will score more in open play around 2/3 more I think salah will score 4+ pens this season.

        B) Not a clue, although doesn’t milojevic take a lot of set pieces(Really hard to spell his name)

        C) Kane, ended the season well, also takes pens, and I think Mourinho will want to prove his strikers can score goals.

        D) Maybe if their performing really well, I’m on Davies atm.

        E) Difficult question to answer with so little information, I think there will be the usual constant performers. New ones I’d say: martial, Greenwood, alli, Barnes, Werner, one arsenal wide man not sure who.

        Also think Brighton defence will perform well once they click!

      I haven't seen any mentions of Kebano. He had a very good spell following Cavaleiro's injury, scored important goals to bring Fulham up, a couple of free kicks as well.

      Can we expect him to keep the left winger spot? Any Fulham fans know something? At 5.0, he could be a good budget option..

      I'm thinking of going without any Liverpool defenders for first 3 GWs - possible double up on Spurs with Doherty and Davies instead. GW2 and GW3 Liverpool are up against Chelsea and Arsenal - teams I would expect to score at least 1 goal on current form. A risk I know but actually one that makes some sense because by the time GW4 comes around and maybe TAA has increased price I will have swapped 12m midfielders to slightly cheaper ones. Am I crazy or is this a decent plan?

        Not sure that's wise. TAA and Robbo get so many points from attacking play that they can still hit double figures whist conceding. But there's more than one way to play the game.

        Logic makes sense, if you've thought it through and think it's a good plan, try not to let others sway you.

        My only concern is the amount of transfers that may be used in the first few weeks, not sure I'd have a free one to swap defenders about.

          Exactly that! If I can get my defence sorted for the first 3 gameweeks which is getting there - and I have my midfield and striker plan ready to go...

        Could try emailing Scout as someone who knows the answer may not see your comment, i'm sure they'd appreciate any suggestions.

      Hudson Odoi (played a lot in preseason) or ASM (in a v poor newcastle team) or armstrong?
