Introducing FFS International

Fantasy Football Scout is committed to celebrating Fantasy Premier League enthusiasts from across the globe.


Fantasy Football has become a truly global passion in recent years, which has created a beautifully diverse readership on our site.

We now have a genuinely international following, as regular visitors from 234 different countries have formed a part of the circa 4.7 million visitors to the site over the last 12 months.

From Australia, Brazil and Croatia to the Western Sahara, Yemen and Zambia, it is clear there are Fantasy managers fretting ahead of each Gameweek regardless of their geographical setting.

And with that in mind, we have set up a new initiative to reflect, celebrate and better serve this international audience.

FFS International is a new branch of the Scout Network dedicated to featuring the best content creators from around the world. 

There is Fantasy advice, insight and entertainment going out all over the planet, tailored to their local communities, languages and timezones and we want to help play a part in connect creators with their audiences.

To find the existing channels check out the detailed map below. 

But remember, we really are just getting started on this initiative, so if you are interested in shining a light on the Fantasy fanatics in your region please do get in touch USING THIS FORM.

  • Let’s Talk FPL (Ireland)
  • The FPL Hangover Podcast (Ireland – Academy)
  • FPL Greece (Greece)
  • Fantasy Chat (Palestine)
  • FPL Poet (Bangladesh)
  • Dream Set Go (India)
  • FPL Live Wire powered by Dream Set Go (India)
  • FPL Take the Hit (Australia)
  • KingFut.com (Egypt)
  • Americans Talk FPL (United States of America – Academy)

The content produced by FFScout is read in over 234 countries around the world from Norway to America, Nigeria to Malaysia and Tonga to Belize. The Scout Network is already helping us to highlight fantastic content from Palestine, Australia, India, Bangladesh, Greece and Ireland, alongside the Scout Academy which contains content creators from America, Ireland as well as the UK. 

The quality of the content internationally is one of the great pulls of the FPL community and hopefully that will only increase with the development of the Arabic language section of the Fantasy Football Scout website

As announced last week, this allows Arabic speakers to read an introduction to Fantasy Football Scout, our ‘How to play FPL’ article and, every Gameweek, they will be able to read our Scout Squad article in their native tongue.  

There will be many further Arabic language articles over the coming weeks and months, including translations of the FFS International articles. 

The comments feature is now active on Arabic articles and there are plans in place to launch Arabic language community articles in the near future. 

FPL Greece

FPL Greece are a founding member of the FFS International branch of the Scout Network. Here is an introduction to their FPL content.

FPL Greece started as a group of friends with common beliefs and life goals. United by our irrational love for Fantasy Premier League, and how much it has damaged us in 10 years of playing, we decided to share our experiences with the wider Greek FPL community in 2018.

Our mission statement was clear and precise: Somehow find a way to win this game and spread the love for Matt “The true Lord” Doherty.

Long-time lurkers of the early days of Fantasy Football Scout, we were among those who patiently waited every week for Mark and Granville’s Scoutcast and spent Saturday’s chatting to other users during games in the world’s first ever global FPL community.

Years went by and our love for the game has only grown. FPL is part of our lives and so is Fantasy Football Scout, so we are delighted to be a member of the FFS International branch of the Scout Network.

Our Team

Christos and Babis have consistently played and failed to win the game since 2008.

Between us, we share seven top 10k finishes, six of which were in the top 5k.

Some of our best finishes in the group include a place in the top 200 for Christos, 1,326 for Babis while Dimitris has come 2,694.

Our Broadcasts

In 2018 we started creating YouTube podcasts in Greek, hoping to connect the Greek Fantasy community which, at the time, was in an embryonic stage.

Over the last two years, we have appeared as guests in the biggest sports radio in Greece to talk about FPL and had the chance to make videos about the Premier League with some of the most popular football journalists.

These days, we stream primarily on Twitch at least twice a week (Monday and Friday at 11pm local time).

The Community

If there’s one thing we are proud of, it is our community of Greek-speaking FPL managers. As the game becomes more and more popular in our country, the FPL Greece Discord server experiences exponential growth.

We scheduled our first meet-up for the last game of the 2019/20 season, although we had to postpone it because of COVID-19.

If things return to normal soon enough, we hope to have one of these later in 2020/21.

Our Competitions

Our mini-league is the biggest in Greece with over 2,000 teams as of Gameweek 4.

We hold ‘Manager of the Month’ competitions with custom made trophies for our patrons.

Another popular competition is the annual FPL Greece Cup.

We had over 1,800 participants last season and we, unlike the official FPL site, actually paused it during the COVID-19 outbreak, calculating all scores properly without having to rely on a virtual coin toss.

We also offer many other gifts and trophies to those who enter our competitions or win them such as original team jerseys or even tickets to football games (two tickets to watch last year’s game between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge).

Our ambition

We are optimistic that this year at least one member of our community will finish within the top 50 of FPL, or even WIN IT.

Oh, and we will continue searching for a good excuse to always have Matt Doherty in our teams.

    Whats the general view on here about Semedo and Wolves defence?

    1. Arn De Gothia
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Saiss for me

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Felt unlucky watching the game as an owner the other day he was far forward taking shots and missed a sitter

      Happy to have him but on wc I’d probably consider coady, Saiss could lose his spot long term and not sure wolves are looking good enough to warrant the extra .5

    3. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Don't look passed saiss

  2. Slitherene
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 24 days ago

    Play which two?

    A) Taylor (wba)
    B) Coady (lee)
    C) Justin (AVL)
    D) Ward (BHA)

    1. DD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      A + B

    2. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

    3. SmasherLagru
      • 2 Years

  4. tibollom
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 24 days ago

    Did my WC out of sheer frustration after last GW, hopefully it's G2G with no injuries during internationals?

    McCarthy
    Chilwell Cresswell Mings
    Hames Salah Sterling Son
    Kane Wilson Watkins

    Nyland, Dunne, Kilman, Anguissa

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Looks good. Can rejig after internationals if needed. Maybe Button for Nyland, if Baggies keep conceding he might get a spot. Not sure how much gametime Dunne or Kilman will get.

      1. tibollom
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 24 days ago

        thaks mate, am i right that I can keep tweaking until next GW? With regards to Dunn and Kilman, its a worry but have no idea who I could get as 4.0 defenders that are playign?

        1. SmasherLagru
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 24 days ago

          Try n catch prise rises with ur bench too. Ferguson will start when hes back n Mitchell still might get minutes

          1. tibollom
            • 5 Years
            11 months, 24 days ago

            thanks mate, do we know how long ferguson will be back??

            1. SmasherLagru
              • 2 Years
              11 months, 24 days ago

              No date yet but wont be too long id guess

    2. SmasherLagru
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Nylands gone

    3. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      It'd be good to have only one 4.0

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      You don’t really want to be relying on any of these if your starting 11 get injured or Covid ... Nyland, Dunne, Kilman, Anguissa

      1. tibollom
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 24 days ago

        yea issue is money in bank...

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 24 days ago

          I would down grade mings and rotate 2 x 4.5.

          Actually I would do Kane to DCL and spread the cash

          1. tibollom
            • 5 Years
            11 months, 24 days ago

            thanks - kinda want to keep Kane.. so other option would be Mings + Dunn to Ayling/Dalls + KWP?

            1. Hotdogs for Tea
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              11 months, 24 days ago

              yip at least you get two nailed starters

    5. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      you need an everton player rod James or DLC

      1. tibollom
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 24 days ago

        yep thanks mate, Hames (James RodrigueZ)

  5. Brosstan
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 24 days ago

    Imagine owning donkey calvert lewin instead of maupay, watkins and wilson

  6. Sotamendi84
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 24 days ago

    best combo (on wc):
    1) kdb robbo watkins trossard
    2) mahrez robbo grealish maupay
    3) kdb chilwell grealish maupay

    1. Dexters Laboratory
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Like the look of 3)

  7. Big_Andy_GAWA
    • 10 Years
    11 months, 24 days ago

    FPL Statisics are really struggling with the algorithm for rises this year. Not sure about price drops, but they're way off with rises; possibly more so than any recent previous seasons... =o/

    1. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Probably changes been made to the algorithm. Increased thresholds for flagged players etc

  8. JVALDEZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 24 days ago

    Call me crazy but ditched my Wolves assets, I hate the look of them at the moment:

    Podence + Jimenez to Son + Watkins for -4

    Happy with Villa’s fixtures so gonna leave Watkins sitting there and Son seems must have with him shifting inside more. The new left back has really helped him out positionally

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Form over fixtures

    2. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      -4 made it not worth it

  9. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    KDB drop! Back to 100.4 team value 😆

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      KDB to punish the sellers this GW

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 24 days ago

        *Soucek hehe

  10. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 24 days ago

    Cavani is way underpriced? Wow!

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Zlatan came in at 10.5

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah, do you think Cavani will be nailed on?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 24 days ago

          Depends how fit he is and how he gets on in the games without Martial

      2. Hawk
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 24 days ago

        Zlatan was 11.5

  11. chobentys
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 24 days ago

    Hi lads. RMWCT! I missed KDB's price drop so wasn't able to keep the 0.1 profit before switching to Captain Jack:

    Emiliano
    Robertson-Chilwell-Saiss
    Salah-Son-Rodriguez-Grealish
    Kane-Wilson-CaLew

    Forster-Justin-Gucci-Mitchell

    101.1m, 0.2m ITB.

    I caught both of Justin's price rises up to 4.7m, would you switch him to Ayling or KWP to nick the 0.1 profit?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      One of my favourites this, really good in my opinion.
      No rush on the Justin move but I guess you could

      1. chobentys
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 24 days ago

        Thanks for the affirmation! James Justin's transfers trend appears to be negative so I am a bit nervous but at least I've got 2 weeks to keep watching!

    2. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      May I ask please. Who is Gucci ?

      1. chobentys
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 24 days ago

        Saint-Maximin's headband, of course!

      2. Vazza
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 24 days ago

        He makes shoes and handbags

      3. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 24 days ago

        OMG! Just knew it.

    3. valurth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Love it. Only one difference from mine, I have Jorginho instead of Gucci. 0.2 ITB
      Other transfers I might do are some cheap player changes
      Justin, Mitchell, Saïss, Martinez
      Kilman 4.0 at Wolves, Dunne, McCarthy, Walker Pieters

      1. chobentys
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 24 days ago

        Yes Kilman is defs one to watch, especially when PVA is back!

        Jorginho's a good punt too of course! The world has already seen he is undisputed pen man for Frank so that price is really nice. But I really feel like Gucci is the budget price Son!

    4. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Ayling for me

  12. Brosstan
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 24 days ago

    Cavani essential for next 3 with Tony suspended?

    1. chobentys
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      Hasn't played football for the last 3 months and is wearing our number 7, and recently watching a YouTube vid about greatest misses of all time and heavily featuring him makes me shaky.

    2. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 24 days ago

      I remember that I was hugely disappointed the last time I bought new signed Man United striker.

    Is grealish and Watkins too much villa on wildcard?
