Scout Notes

West Brom revival starts with exploiting Wolves’ ongoing defensive issues

WOLVES 2-3 WEST BROM

  • Goals: Fabio Silva (£5.2m), Willy Boly (£5.4m)| Matheus Pereira (£5.6m) x2, Semi Ajayi (£4.8m)
  • Assists: Boly| Callum Robinson (£5.4m) x2, Kyle Bartley (£4.4m)
  • Bonus: Pereira x3, Boly x2, Silva x1, Robinson x1

Roll of the Dyce

Wolves’ defensive credentials remain under serious scrutiny as they conceded three goals at home to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Despite being able to draw on Leander Dendoncker (£4.7m) and Willy Boly (£5.4m) again following injury, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are still searching for a first clean sheet since Gameweek 7.

Set pieces proved the main issue for Wolves as they gave up two spot-kicks and the Baggies’ only non-penalty goal at Molineux started with a Dara O’Shea (£4.5m) throw-in.

Kyle Bartley (£4.4m) then won the flick-on which allowed Semi Ajayi (£4.8m) to loop a header over Rui Patricio (£5.4m).

Asked if West Brom had rehearsed the dead-ball routine, Sam Allardyce revealed:

“Yeah…Wolves’ stats are not that great on set-pieces. In saying that, we weren’t very good on set-pieces ourselves! But Wolves on set-pieces do let a lot of goals in. So we felt we could exploit that area. And in open play, I’m disappointed we didn’t score the chances we created but at least we created more than I’ve seen since I’ve been here.” – Sam Allardyce

Nuno knew what the Baggies would throw at his team, though Wolves were unable to deal with it.

“We knew [the set-piece threat would come]. We knew. We knew that West Brom [would] try to do these kind of things; throw-ins, long balls, set-pieces. And we didn’t defend well. Disappointing, frustrated with the way we played and the result. The beginning of the second half, we started very poorly. Two penalties and a throw-in [were West Brom’s goals]. We knew we required better defending. We must rectify it and do better.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

The Wolves manager is clearly in a desperate search for solutions to their problems considering the decisions he made on Saturday afternoon.

He made the surprise call of taking off captain and ever-present (when fit) central defender Conor Coady (£4.9m) in the 64th minute, replacing him with Rayan Aït-Nouri (£5.0m) in a tactical change.

“Options, options. We had Romain [Saiss] and [Willy] Boly, and we decided to go with Rayan [Ait-Nouri], the left-back. Simple decision.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

New no for Nuno

The Wolves boss stuck with a back four in Double Gameweek 19

Considering Wolves’ ongoing defensive problems, they have gone from a team FPL bosses looked to for shut-outs, to a side that may get targeted with opposition attacking assets.

With immediate fixtures against Chelsea (away), Crystal Palace (away) and Arsenal (home), there is further time to assess the deteriorating situation at Wolves, as players from those three teams may not be on the fantasy radar considering other fixtures.

It does seem, however, that Nuno will continue with a four-man defence. Wolves’ team-sheet graphic suggested a back three for West Brom’s visit but that did not prove to be the case. The Wolves manager said post-match:

“We think that a back four is better for us with the players we have. It is time to analyse and see what the next step forwards is.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

Willy Goaly

Willy Boly puts Wolves back in front in the first half

It was a tumultuous return to action for Willy Boly (£5.4m) at Molineux on Saturday.

The centre-back conceded the first of two penalties that Wolves gave up to West Brom.

Boly then turned a lovely pass around the corner of the West Brom defence in the opposite box, allowing Fabio Silva (£5.2m) to shoot past David Button (£4.0m).

And it was the Ivory Coast defender who put Wolves 2-1 up before half time, capitalising on a bouncing ball in the area to fire home.

Boly is unlikely to attract too many FPL investors, however, considering his price and Wolves’ aforementioned issues in defence.

Flat to the Mat

Matheus Pereira converts the first of two penalties

Matheus Pereira (£5.6m) twice converted from the penalty spot against Wolves, after fouls on Callum Robinson (£5.4m) by both Boly and Coady.

The West Brom winger, as with Boly, is unlikely to be a consideration for our squads at present. However, the Baggies do embark on a relatively favourable fixture run from Gameweek 25.

On the overall performance by his team, Allardyce mused:

“In the vast majority of that performance, I thought the plan and the way the lads carried out the tactics was excellent. It’s the best I’ve seen us in possession since I’ve been here. We [did] some good defending at Liverpool [in Gameweek 15] but from there on, we’ve been waiting to get the defending side right and getting the attacking side right. Apart from slipping up on a set-piece, or two set-pieces – a wide free-kick and a corner which put us on the back foot – I’d have to say the lads were excellent, [especially] in the second half. You could’ve felt that the heads would go down with the problems and the results we’ve had recently but they came bouncing back.” – Sam Allardyce


Wolves XI (4-3-3): Patricio; Saiss, Coady (Ait-Nouri 63′), Boly, Semedo; Dendoncker, Neves (Gibbs-White 59′), Moutinho (Cutrone 79′); Neto, Fabio Silva, A Traoré.

West Bromwich Albion XI (4-2-3-1): Button; Gibbs, Bartley, Ajayi, O’Shea; Livermore, Sawyers; Grosicki (Robson-Kanu 69′), M Pereira, Snodgrass, (Furlong 82′); C Robinson.

    Next week looks a benching headache as I have spread funds for bench boost. Bench order correct? And who would you look to move on first to upgrade?

      With all that’s going on surrounding Covid, I think it’s best to wait until last minute. You might find you need everyone on your bench to come on.

      Yep provided zouma hasn’t annoyed lampard in some way and plays next game(so frustrating as fellow owner - was right game for headers in the box).

        Could take Zouma out for Cancelo with the other FT... Have exact cash for this.

    Think you need to target teams who play WBA, Burnley, Newcastle, Sheff Utd, Palace, Fulham for defensive returns. And you may not be bothered about playing Arsenal and Wolves either. So:

    Brighton (GW20-GW26): FUL, bur, CPL, wba
    Chelsea (GW19-GW24): ful, WOL, BUR, shu, NEW
    Fulham (GW20-GW26): bha, wba, SHU, cpl
    Palace (GW21-GW26): WOL, new, BUR, FUL
    Man City (GW19-GW22): CPL, wba, SHU, bur
    WBA (GW22 - GW28): FUL, shu, bur, NEW, CPL
    West Ham (GW20-GW24): cpl, ful, SHU

    1. PogBruno

    4. DandyDon
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Bit annoyed I overlooked Brighton (like most) as a defensive option this week, would have been great to setup a BB, but fixtures still look great going forward. Chillwell looking essential again after yesterday’s performance. Always thought he was a season keeper last time I had him so his injury was frustrating. Think teams doing best this week will be four at the back and many still have him in their side.

    And it was today, Sunday 17th January 2021, that signaled the end of Salah's liverpool career. His penalty miss, own goal, yellow and red cards inside the first 5 minutes of the game vs Man Utd was a tragic end to a glorious period in liverpool.

    Carlsberg dont do non-Salah owner match days... but if they did ...

    What a lovely dream I just had ...

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

      Antonio , you get to see 1 more game. I intend to go with Antonio, bamford and Watkins until wildcard so those are my top 3.

      Good we can wait and see how they look in the next 2 gws. Would need to lose Bamford so Everton would need to really impress in next 2

    Think I’ve got a tough task to knock out my cup opponent. On 44pts currently, gameweek rank of 44,000. BB and Captained Cresswell! He doesn’t have KDB who I TC’d so still a chance.

    1. Party time
      • 2 Years

      I am in the next round of the cuP. I feel bad fir my cup opponent. She took a minus 12.

      Current score 28 vs -2

      1. DandyDon
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Haha not the way to take a minus 12! Actually both myself (first time ever) and my opponent both took -12 but both doing decent, 29 and 44 points. I’m happy to be on green arrow after first day considering the hits.

    2. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Wish I had that sort of luck in the cup.

      I either get drawn against a serious player, or a ghost ship with the perfect set up by pure chance.

    3. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      My opponent took a -20 and has players who aren't playing doubles and others who not likely to play at all. I'm not sure what type of substance abuse they are into but I'm feeling pretty confident.

      Thanks.

      Wood will be gone the following week.

      I can't see Rodgers dropping Justin with the way he's playing, would be extremely harsh.

        Both bottom of the fixture ticker across the next 5.

          Is it your opinion or the fixture ticket opinion. Either way, I’ll disagree with you there

          1. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            It’s my opinion.

            I just replied to “Ha” below in regards to my Spurs reasoning. 1 good fixture in 5.

            Liverpool are already way off form and play tot, wh, bri, city, Leicester.
            Not one of those are a good fixture for pool right now.

            I’m just saying there could be some gains to make by going against the herd for a short period of time.

              Top three players for me are salah kdb and son. Son is best value player in the game, 9m mid who should be 11-12m.

              We must be looking at different teams as those fixtures look pretty good to me. Salah at home, it doesn’t matter who he’s up against as I hope he’ll prove this gw as my captain. FPL is all about timing and like you say going against the herd....but looking at those fixtures there’s no way I’m jumping off salah or son

              1. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                This is why FPL is great....

                It’s interesting how we all look at situations in different ways. So many different ways to play the game.

                You look at that set of fixtures in a completely different way to me.

                Good luck.

                  Good luck as well

                Bruno v strong too. More hauls than Salah but Salah has a higher ceiling.

                Think it's 6 hauls to 4.

                Salah often scores high but 6 blanks too.

                1. Pat Bonner
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 2 days ago

                  True. Bruno is just behind as slightly concerned he’s dropped off a bit recently but sure he’ll be back soon. I’ve got all 4 and hard to shift any of them

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Vardy, DCL, Rashford

      1. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Yea I like Everton too.

        Digne coming in for me soon.

    3. Ha.
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Spurs play bri and WBA in the next 4... and they are not playing at Anfield or Stamford Bridge and so I think attacking assets will be fine

      1. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        They also play Pool, Chelsea and City.

        City couldn’t score more than 1 vs Brighton, and leeds just lost to them.
        Definitely not an easy fixture for Spurs now.....

        So 1 good game in 5 matches.

        1. Ha.
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          I think you missed the part where they are playing at home...

          There’s no way Kane and Son don’t return during that period

          1. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            I’m not saying they won’t return across 5 weeks.

            But I think their output will be less than others.

    4. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      May well do Son to Rashford

  20. George James
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Do you think Reece James starts vs Leicester on Tuesday?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      No

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

      I think so

    3. Mr Ozil
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      50/50

    4. George James
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Cheers all.

      Azpi unlikely to play twice in 4 days in my opinion but we will see

      1. Ruth_NZ
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Azpi isn't an ancient monument, he's 31.

        Whether James plays or not will depend how fit he really is and whether Lampard wants to keep a bit more experience in the team at the moment.

    5. COVID-CASUAL
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I hope so... bought him in (for free) instead of Antonio (for -4). Oops. But if he gets the spot, it’s a solid long term play... could see him running Chilwell very close for pts at 1m less.

        1. George James
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Had him for ages and it’s been frustrating to say the least. The boy owes me 🙂

      Is it true Son is out today?

          Isn’t there a ban for this sort of thing though?

          This!! Slow start to Sunday

        Still a little cloudy here.

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 5 Years

          Lovely sunshine here

      7. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Better not be. That was my route to Salah and would've got Antonio instead of Cresswell

    7. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I’ve conflicted myself. Took TC off KdB at the last minute but still captained him. Now I kind of hope he doesn’t do well otherwise I’ll regret taking the TC a off him. But I need him to do well.

      1. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        This is what EO has done to us. We don't even want our captain to do well

      2. HM2
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Unless it’s the final day of the season and your mini league rival has TC then there should never be a scenario where you don’t want your captain to do well lol

        1. Ron_Swanson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Exactly!

      3. George James
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Win win then

        1. Ron_Swanson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          True

      4. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        We always need our players to return points and double so on the captain.

        So you don't want to deal with the what if of triple points on a monster haul but the real point is the difference with all the other captain picks and the non KDB owners.

        You've got to chose your own perspective though.

        It's great it's not a template.

    8. HM2

      Will Justin be dropped to make way for Pereira?

      1. Mr Ozil
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Given his current form and Rodger's comment, he is nailed.

      2. Tambling5
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        He's played so well all season it's difficult to see how they can. He seems to be able to play in a variety of positions.

      3. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Left RB vs Right RB

      4. HM2
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Cheers guys.

        Considering Zouma > Justin, given that Lampard isn’t playing him every game.

      5. Steve The Spud

      Have leeds burnt out already?

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Karen Carney owed an apology?

      2. Ron_Swanson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I think some teams will just know how to stop them now as they play the same way every game

      3. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        They could run out of steam with that intensity in a settled team and injured defenders etc.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Didn't even realise so many people have Justin. He singlehandedly turned my green arrow red yesterday.

      1. AC/DC AFC

        Good pick Justin.

        1. el polako
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          One of my favourite players this season.

          1. Houldsworth Hatter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Brought him and Maddison in this week so happy with that 🙂

    11. Tcheco
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      How did Ayoze not square that ball to Vardy at the end? Robbed us of a party

    12. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I was happy with my Justin 8 pointer and then I've watched MOTD to see Vardy butchering his assist.
      I guess the silver lining is that some people actually went for Foxes forward.

    13. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Anyone to even consider up front from Chelsea? Got Lacazette stinking up my team and really like their fixtures but Werner looks off the table

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Wouldn't touch Chelsea forwards with yours

      2. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Chelsea is 3rd in terms of xG this season, but there is no standout option among their attackers to be honest, especially with all this rotation.

    14. Eat my goal!

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years

        Been injured long term, has had setbacks too. Haven't needed to rush him back with Justin castagne and Thomas doing well enough

    15. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Going to be heavily looking at a Man Utd double up With Bruno + Rashford.

      A -8 to remove Bamford, TAA and Riedewald, to fund Brewster a 4.5M defender and Rashford is on the cards for me. This is ideal going forward

      Stones Dias (rotating 4.5M)
      Rashford Grealish Bruno Salah KDB
      Watkins Antonio

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Rushford is a good pick but I'm not sure it's worth -8 to be honest
