Az joins the Fantasy Football Scout team to oversee Members content and tools

Fantasy Football Scout are delighted to announce a fresh addition to the team – or, at least, a familiar face in a new capacity.

Az Phillips is to become our Membership Strategy Manager and will be working hard to make sure we continue to provide the very best content, tools and services for all Premium Members of Fantasy Football Scout.

He’ll also be generally more involved with various Scout activities on the site and beyond.

Many of you will know Az from his appearances on the Scoutcast and other Fantasy Football Scout videos over the years, as well as his Pro Pundit articles.

He’s also one half of the refreshed FPL BlackBox, a Scout Network podcast in which he and Mark Sutherns look at how we can learn from our mistakes to improve as FPL managers.

Az first joined the site over 10 years ago, initially as a moderator and a community writer.

He has three top 10k overall ranks to his name in FPL, the best of which saw him finish 817th in 2017/18.

We’re delighted to welcome Az on board in a more involved role and we look forward to him helping further improve our Premium Membership offerings in the months and years ahead.

        No - just punted on them turning it around with nice fixtures. Worked well last week with 3 points between them.

          Salah is bound to score tonight. Can't see him blanking yet again.

            I admire your efforts to make me feel better 😉

      Given how poorly most of the other (C) options fared this week and how many people ditched Salah, a haul is on the cards. I still own him, so at least I hope that's the case.

      The big broom has already come out and swept it right under the carpet. Expect it never to be spoken of again.

      3x2 minimum 🙂

    Good man AZ best of luck with this! 🙂

    To start you off - can we get filterable FPL points, ability to select non-sequential gameweek samples, more than 10 stats in custom member tables (like the predefined tables which have >10 stats)

    Some other bits & pieces suggested below (It's nice to see that the matches screen was updated to reverse chronological order for this season - i find it a small but helpful improvement - now let's get some game changers to elevate the members area)

    Some better formation analysis would also be neat, the heatmaps/average position graphs are just a bit messy/don't really do it for me

    Take some inspiration from the Football Manager interface, it's nice & clean & informative & all elements are clickable/drill downs etc!

      Thanks Maximus! Much appreciated 😀

      I'm going to be doing a full evaluation of the site and collecting comments from as many different sources as I can. Your comments, and all of those in the thread you've linked, are absolutely crucial in this, so know that I'm on the case and will add it to the data that I'm collecting about what works and what can be improved. Awesome stuff.

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to say hi and I'm really happy to be part of the FFScout team where I've been knocking around for the best part of ten years now.

    As it says in this lovely article (I didn't write it for myself, honest), my role is going to have me overseeing how FFScout evolves for premium members.

    To say I'm passionate about FPL is an understatement. I believe Scout is the best tool out there for any FPL managers, but I'm aware that it can be even better. I'd love to hear your feedback on what works - and what doesn't work - and you can email me at az@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk.

    I'll also be looking to find out more about what you guys all think about the various tools and offerings the members area has too, and what can be tweaked and improved to make your experiences on the site even better.

    Real privilege to be here 🙂

      Congrats Az, here's to an improved Members' section going forward 🙂 I also think it would be a good idea to get members involved more in video content that FFS produces... a way for us to feel more involved and to contribute too.

    2. Fudgy

      I think an app would be epic. The mobile interface is sometimes a bit difficult for me to navigate on a small device.

      1. tbos83
          4 months, 13 days ago

          Second this. And if it could include a slicker comments system that'd be ace. Eg it updates live so you don't have to keep refreshing

        • Delph & Safety
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 13 days ago

          I agree. And having all the data is brilliant but it the effort of going through it and actually knowing how to find key stats puts me off.

          • Has Moderation Rights

          Oh believe me, I know how great an app would be.
          It's very high on the list.

          Fudgy, an app is definitely something that is high on the agenda, is there anything in particular that you would like to see in an app?

          1. Fudgy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 13 days ago

            I don't know if I've replied too late but when I use the members section on mobile and zoom out I don't see all the information on the home page and the information I see is very small. I think solving this issue with an app would be great.

        Hi Az, love your work on the Black Box and here of course! I think the Scout site can improve by updating the fixture ticker and player projections as soon as a Gameweek is finished. I find it rather slow in updating and doesn't necessarily reflect changes such as team news, injuries, etc. up until the last minute.

        Hi

        Good job on the good job.

        Can I put something forward - just so you can reject it out of hand 🙂

        Having run a large website I understand the impetus to maintain a high flow of articles. From the user end I wonder it there may be almost too much content being produced. I spend way too much time on here and cannot keep up.I'm not suggesting here that you rein back on content but simply how it is accessed. If you're looking for something specific it's a tough navigation. Search bars etc are not an optimal solution as they rarely if ever get used.

        Is there a solution where there's a clearer distinction between match reports, weekly previews, opinion pieces etc if only on an improved drop down menu? You already have it in a modified way under the content tab over but I suspect that can be bettered.

        Good content. Format getting iffy.

      8. Trippier Hazard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Congrats Az, an improvement I'd like to see is all articles being given more equal prominence - we don't need a separate community article section but all articles on the same article feed. Important ones could be pinned, but that way community articles get more exposure? Might also encourage more people to submit articles?

        And a resounding yes to a better comments system - maybe that isn't linked to article pages, but maybe by date or something? But that probably means more moderation....

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Honestly thought you were already on the payroll! I would like to see an enhanced members only chat/comments section with added functionality to post pics, screenshots, etc so that we can easily discuss stats/info from the members area.

        Congrats Az. One little thing I would enjoy was someone tracking how the scoutpicks would do in OR. Just adding the points each GW, including C and autosubs, and see what rank it would correlate to.

          It would win you’d think. It’s a wildcard every week.

          1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
            • 6 Years

            Would be incredibly embarrassing if it didn't, which is probably why they wouldn't do it. That and there being little point.

        Welcome back again! Main issue from me is providing some guidance on how to make the most of the data, what’s important, what’s the key data set say for attackers(shots in box, xg involvement etc). There’s just so much data that I just don’t think I get the most out of it. Cheers!

        - Mobile app for iOS and Android

        - Notification Centre for replies to your posts comments

        - A bit controversial maybe, but a downvote/ignore button for the comments section

        I’m not a member but that’s my twopence for the general use of the site.
        If you was to add in a notification centre then the emails sent for notifications can be turned off.

        Economize common comments/questions into a FAQ / metaSearch function with sort by features (member comments, ratings, key words combos) to make it easy to search comments across articles for key pieces of information. FAQ would involve promoting good questions/answers that are flagged by members as helpful and categorized by the flagger (team news, injury news, press conference. Etc)

                  Disagree with this, based off their last fights. No doubts it'll be a blockbuster but I can't see it being a Fury walkover, no way.

                  (Assuming Son is fit else I'll keep Gundo and sell Son)

                      Anyone remember that one guy last week who asked "Iheanacho (C)?"
                      Everyone told him no...
                      Anyone have updates on whether it was followed through?

                                Fair play - he took a -8 to sell Brewster, Sterling and Lewis for Iheanacho, Mount and Shaw

                          Creswell, Dallas or Tierney? No FH, this is to bring in as a normal transfer. Thanks

                            Cresswell. He's the one I'd want until the end of the season.

                            I'm bringing in Cresswell this GW, plan for the duration.

                            Everyone's thoughts on Bamford playing next week?

                              If it’s confirmed a dead leg he should play so wouldn’t sell esp with s Utd the week after

                              Cant wait for news - sold last night

                              Based on 0 information - I think he plays

                            4. tbos83
                                4 months, 13 days ago

                                I reckon it might be more than a dead leg (based on how long he was down) and he won't play

                                2, 3, 4 or 5 goals for sure

                              How many goals is Salah going to score tonight: 2. 3. 4 or 5 goals? He was waiting for me to sell him obviously and now he is going to explode. The question is how much?

                              Put your number.

                                  That would be the less painful option

                                Jota will score tonight

                                45 points in 11 weeks, including the freak 15 points vs CPL - can't regret selling him whatever happens tonight

                                  What if he scores 100 goals tonight? Surely you’d regret it a bit then as you’d be 500 points behind Salah owners

                                      How long is Son out for? If its a hammy, then probably 3-4 weeks right?

                                            He is inj. Im 100% sure

                                            If it wasn't bad, he wouldn't go off after 20 minutes in their biggest game of the season. Did even try to run off whatever muscle injury it was unlike say Bamford.

                                        Wondered why my selling price for son was so low then realised he actually started at 9.0. Insane.

                                            That seemed a lot a t the start of the season, he's never exploded like this before

                                              He never used to be nailed and that was the issue, still pretty explosive but the random benchings put most of us off

                                          So if Son is indeed ruled out for a few weeks, is Bale the obvious replacement? At the moment, assuming Son doesn't play.. I'm only fielding 7 players this week, one of them being Dier who lets be honest is most likely not going to play either. What is my best move here? I've got 5.8m in the bank and 2FT. Thinking about doing Dier > Dallas & Son > Bale so I can at least field 8 players. Thoughts?

                                          DCL - Kane - Bamford

                                          Bench: Areola - Shaw - Stones - Salah

                                              Similar situation, bale vs auba is the big question

                                                Do you trust Auba to start after this weekend?

                                                    If he was only benched because he was late then yeah probably

                                                Not the obvious choice no

                                                  Dont overthink it - Son > bale and then you also have Bale for Newcastle the week after and potential of DGW in 33 etc

                                                What's the obvious moves here? One of the City defenders to Cresswell or Dallas?

                                                  Dallas if he gets through the next game and international break uninjured has a nice fixture in 30. If you are wildcarding in 31. He seems the safest pick. If no wildcard then Cresswell if those are your 2 options.

                                                Seems that it's going to be a painful GW next one. A game on Friday, a game on Saturday and two on Sunday ... imagine a sizeable red arrow on day one then the agony to wait for the captain to save the GW! Love and hate FPL.

                                                  Hey buddy, how long have you been planning for the BGW?? Your team looks remarkably set up!! 🙂

                                                  Although I’m a Bale owner, I think he is an overrated pick but I guess we have a small pool of players to choose from for the blank so we are where we are.

                                                  I would personally just do Grealish to one of the Spurs mids and rollover the other FT.

                                                  All the best mate, I wished I was set up that well. 🙂

                                                    Hi mate!! Well, I’ve had triple Leeds for a while, I’ve kept Grealish in my team ever since he got injured, I have brought in Cresswell and Lingard with my two frees this week already so now what you see is what I have so would be just -4 to get a full 11 out, Bale or Trossard are my options I think?! Worried about Spurs away from home and also Bale on playing an hour at a time too!! Haha decisions decisions!!!
