Scout Notes

How Newcastle, Norwich and Villa fared under their new bosses in Gameweek 12

It’s a bit of a Scout Notes special as we take a first look at how the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) assets of Newcastle United, Norwich City and Aston Villa fared under their new managers in Gameweek 12.

One match-worth of data and eye test takeaways isn’t enough to draw any conclusions from, of course, but we can at least see how Eddie Howe, Dean Smith and Steven Gerrard sent their teams out on Saturday and take a bit of a calculated punt as to which players may prosper – or suffer – under new management.

LINE-UPS AND FORMATIONS

Aston Villa

There were no major shocks at Villa Park, with Gerrard adopting the same 4-3-3 tactics he used at Rangers.

The usual goalkeeper and back four were in place, with Marvelous Nakamba (£4.5m) again filling in for the injured Douglas Luiz (£4.5m) in midfield.

Ollie Watkins (£7.3m) started as one of two very narrow wingers in a three-man attack, later taking on the central role upon Danny Ings‘ (£7.7m) withdrawal midway through the second half.

Newcastle United

Howe’s 3-4-3 set-up saw Fabian Schar (£4.3m) replace Emil Krafth (£4.3m) at the back; no surprise, perhaps, given the Switzerland international’s ability on the ball and Howe’s love of a distributor from defence.

Joe Willock (£5.8m) came in for Isaac Hayden (£4.5m) in the engine room as the ex-Bournemouth boss went without a midfield shield, while Joelinton (£5.8m) replaced Miguel Almiron (£5.2m) – who had a late return from international duty – out wide.

In the second half, with Schar injured and Newcastle chasing the game, Howe moved wing-backs (and natural wingers) Jacob Murphy (£4.9m) and Matt Ritchie (£4.9m) to orthodox full-back roles in a very adventurous 4-2-3-1.

Norwich City

Smith also went with a 4-3-3 of sorts at Carrow Road, with two of his three changes seeing the hitherto out-in-the-cold Todd Cantwell (£5.3m) and Billy Gilmour (£4.4m) brought back into the side. Cantwell was replaced by Josh Sargent (£5.4m) at half-time, however, with his manager citing rustiness.

One budget FPL defender kept his place in the starting XI in the form of Brandon Williams (£4.0m); the other, Andrew Omobamidele (£3.9m), was benched.

FPL PLAYERS WHO IMPRESSED UNDER THEIR NEW MANAGERS

Aston Villa

Gerrard cited the need to tighten up at the back when he delivered his first press conference as Villa manager last week and a first clean sheet since Gameweek 6 duly arrived.

It was indeed the defence that impressed most with a more compact and convincing performance. As it happened, this was the first fixture since Gameweek 1 in which last season’s high-achieving defensive unit had all started in a flat back four with Emiliano Martinez (£5.5m) behind them.

Tyrone Mings (£4.9m) was more solid and topped the shot count at Villa park en route to finding the net but it was full-backs Matthew Cash (£5.1m) and Matt Targett (£4.7m) who caught the eye most, tasked with getting forward and providing width either side of Gerrard’s narrow front three – a tactic borrowed from his time at Rangers.

Budget midfielder Jacob Ramsey (£4.5m) may also benefit from Gerrard’s love of a three-man central midfield in the long term and he was back in the starting XI against Brighton.

NEWCASTLE UNITED

Allan Saint-Maximin (£6.8m) and man-of-the-match (yes, really) Joelinton (£5.8m) scored in Howe’s first match in charge but there was at least some encouragement for owners of a blanking Callum Wilson (£7.4m), who couldn’t be bettered for shots in the area in the Premier League in Gameweek 12. He also trailed only two players for penalty box touches and overall goal attempts, seeing one effort cleared off the line.

A word of warning for existing and prospective owners, however: Wilson is now just one booking away from a ban.

Newcastle were top or joint-top for goal attempts (23) and shots in the box (16) in the Gameweek just gone, producing their highest tallies for each in 2021/22 to date. Saint-Maximin, Wilson and Joelinton were responsible for 17 of those 23 efforts.

How Newcastle, Norwich and Villa fared under their new managers in Gameweek 12 6

No FPL asset created more chances than Jonjo Shelvey (£5.3m) in Gameweek 12, while the set-piece-taking Ritchie got forward plenty from left wing-back.

NORWICH CITY

It was perhaps more a collective second-half stir rather than any individual brilliance that swung the game in Norwich’s favour, although Gilmour’s reintroduction will have alerted fans of a dirt-cheap midfielder: the Chelsea loanee was not only back in the starting XI but also on set plays, creating three of Norwich’s seven chances and an assist.

Teemu Pukki (£5.8m) scored for the second successive Gameweek, meanwhile, and has quietly moved up to joint-seventh in FPL forwards’ points table – although that’s perhaps more of an indictment of the Fantasy strikers as a collective than a glowing testimony of the Finn.

THE FPL ASSETS WHO DISAPPOINTED/MISSED OUT

ASTON VILLA

Attacking-wise, Villa barely created anything of note until Watkins’ superb 83rd-minute breakaway opener. Brighton saw over 60% of the ball (even if that was part of the plan) and Ings and Emiliano Buendia (£6.2m) both flattered to deceive before being replaced. There will be a bit of uncertainty about who joins Watkins in the front three next weekend, then, with Ashley Young (£4.7m) impressing off the bench and Leon Bailey (£6.4m) also handed a second-half cameo.

NEWCASTLE UNITED

With two wingers operating at wing-back and then full-back, no defensive midfielder in place, Schar a liability when he isn’t in possession and Karl Darlow (£4.5m) again conceding a goal he shouldn’t have, it’s no surprise that the Magpies looked better going forward than in the other direction.

United are still without a clean sheet in 2021/22 and no side has conceded on more occasions. Ritchie might be attractive going forward with his creativity but when there are issues at the other end, he’s a bit of a no-go.

NORWICH CITY

Cantwell’s sub-par showing won’t have done him any favours, while the 4.2%-owned Omobamidele dropped out of the side after consecutive starts before the international break.

THE OPPOSITION

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION

Whisper it quietly but Brighton have now gone seven matches without a win. No side has scored fewer goals than the Seagulls (four) in the last six Gameweeks, while only Norwich have carved out fewer big chances.

Despite the shortage of goals, Leandro Trossard (£6.5m) was again deployed as a false nine at Villa, with Neal Maupay (£6.4m) benched for the third Gameweek running.

It’s now four matches without a clean sheet, too, although two of those games were against Manchester City and Liverpool, and Albion really weren’t in any danger at Villa Park until Watkins popped up with his superb solo strike.

Robert Sanchez (£4.6m) is now free of suspension and will presumably return between the posts after a competent Premier League debut for Jason Steele (£4.0m).

“He was excellent. Did everything we asked of him, made some saves, good with his feet, helped the team. Didn’t deserve to lose but that is life. Really happy with him.” – Graham Potter on Jason Steele

Tariq Lamptey (£4.4m) continues to catch the eye, meanwhile. His total of 38 touches in the final third was the highest of anyone on show in the Midlands and for the second week running he was presented with a chance just outside of the six-yard box, with Martinez thwarting him on this occasion.

BRENTFORD

Ivan Toney (£6.7m) almost inevitably scored against his old club on Saturday, ending a run of five straight blanks. Encouragingly for his previously underwhelmed owners, his all-round display was more threatening, with one effort ruled out for an offside and another attempt cleared off the line with Darlow beaten. Bryan Mbeumo (£5.6m), of course, hit the woodwork – the seventh time this season that has happened.

There’s ongoing concern at the back, with the Bees now having conceded eight goals to the bottom three in the last three Gameweeks. Injuries aren’t helping and we even saw Mads Roerslev (£4.3m), a full-back by trade, deputising at centre-half in this match.

“We need to defend better. In duels, defending crosses and defending the box which is something we normally do very well. It’s a strange one. Sometimes you go through ups and downs in terms of having that consistency. It’s definitely something we are focusing on and talking about.” -Thomas Frank

SOUTHAMPTON

Tino Livramento (£4.6m) kept up his ever-present record but blanked for just the second time in nine Gameweeks as Southampton went down to their first defeat in five. It was also noticeable how Saints again attacked more from their left flank: Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.8m) has 100 final-third touches compared to Livramento’s 59 over the last three Gameweeks, with Livramento without a shot or key pass in that time.

Che Adams (£6.8m) and Adam Armstrong (£5.8m) were again paired up top, meanwhile, with the two combining for Adams’ second goal in three matches.

Saints had 12 shots to one in the first half and the ‘one of those days’ feeling was compounded with Alex McCarthy‘s (£4.6m) concession of two goals that he probably ought to have stopped.

    Reckon my team is well setup but Son and Kane are the problem childs. Who knows, perhaps they will be all guns blazing GW13.

    1. fc_skrald

      Yes, keep them and hope for the best!

      One fifth of your team value tied up in 2 attaching players from a team that have scored 11 goals in 12 games is OTT.

    3. Nomar
      • 12 Years
      16 days, 1 hour ago

      Would probably shift on WC but not playing that chip yet, so no great urgency to ship him out right now.

      Antonio and Jesus are currently stinking it up more than Toney in my front 3 anyway.

      1. Nomar
        • 12 Years
        16 days, 1 hour ago

        Reply fail. This was meant for Natedog re getting rid of Toney.

  2. Gandalf

    A. ESR
    B. Cornet

    1. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Both good options with good fixture runs for a while. I have Cornet so I'll say him but ESR is ticking over very nicely, although thought I saw someone on a previous article saying his attacking stats have been slowly worsening.

  3. NateDog
    • 1 Year

    Toney owners what are you doing? I planned to get rid this week but have to move on Chilwell finally. 3 of the next 4 fixtures are very good (and the other against Spurs isn't the worst either) but I don't know whether I should keep for them, or what's best if I move him on.

    Contemplating two options, one being move to King and mostly keep as a bench option, or upgrade to someone 7m or under and have a bit of a benching headache most weeks, but have a better bench for the busy period where injuries and rotation is inevitable. Not sure if keeping is a better choice at this point.

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      I'm keeping. The forward options aren't great atm and EVE, tot, lee, WAT is decent enough for Toney.

    2. Indpush
      • 3 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      I'm holding for now

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Why sell Chilwell?

      1. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        16 days, 2 hours ago

        Sorry must have worked that poorly, I meant I had to finally move to get Chilwell again as I clearly can't keep putting it off

        1. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          16 days, 2 hours ago

          *worded, autocorrect is killing me today

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Oh yeah, then get in that bad boy.

    4. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      I planned to move too, but other moves also jumped the queue, so will hold for now til something better comes up.

      Will rotate Toney, Wilson and Hwang dependent on fixtures/form.

    5. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Keeping till wildcard

    6. Nomar
      • 12 Years

      Would probably shift on WC but not playing that chip yet, so no great urgency to ship him out right now.

      Antonio and Jesus are currently stinking it up more than Toney in my front 3 anyway.

    7. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years

      I'm looking at downgrading Toney to fund the move to James. Chelsea WBs ceiling is so much higher than Toney.

    8. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      16 days, 1 hour ago

      I'd pencilled in Toney -> Benteke this week & am going ahead with it mainly b/c of Teke's performance. But wouldn't mind keeping Toney for a bit. Encouraging that Mbeumo has moved & Toney should prob be getting more chances in the box & fixtures arent too bad

      Sarr to Gallagher if you can afford.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        16 days, 2 hours ago

        I can afford, 6,1 million to use. Smith Rowe is another option...

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years

      Sarr > Gallagher

    Start Antonio or Toney?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Toney

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Toney.

  6. Arteta

    16 days, 2 hours ago

    Ramsdale (Sánchez)
    Alexander-Arnold Cancelo James Reguilón (Livramento)
    Salah Son Foden Gallagher (Gray)
    Aubameyang Toney (Scarlett)

    1FT, 0.4 in the bank.

    What would you do in my situation?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Save

    2. Arteta
      • 6 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Gray has to go and Scarlett is just a filler. I know I need strong bench for December.

      The initial plan was to keep Aubameyang until GW20 (AFCON) but he's just not doing anything right at the moment and it's so frustrating. It was a failed punt so far and I should probably move on. However, he is playing against Newcastle next.

      1. GreennRed
        • 10 Years
        16 days, 2 hours ago

        Keep him another GW. Midweek GW next so maybe for United on the Thursday too.

  7. squ1rrel

    Sa (Steele)
    TAA - Cancelo - Chilwell (Livra - Williams)
    Salah - Son - Gallagher - Saka (Allan)
    Vardy - Jimenez - Wilson

    1 FT, 0.0 ITB

    Would you save here?

    1. Indpush
      • 3 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Yes

  8. mdm
    • 9 Years
    16 days, 2 hours ago

    Rudiger -> TAA or save FT?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Save or find another way to get TAA.

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Yes.

    3. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      I'd try find another way, Rudiger could be a really good option around the busy Winter period as he's fairly rotation prone

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        16 days, 1 hour ago

        This but I would do the move if it is the only way for free.

  9. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    16 days, 2 hours ago

    Benteke's stats in the last 4 are through the roof, competing with Salah's, and the fixture run just started

    See you in GW18, Antonio. It's been a fun ride from GW1

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Oh really? Can you give me a few stats please?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          16 days, 1 hour ago

          Whoops. Thanks for not being a douche about that. 🙂

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      The worry I have with him is rotation, 5 starts in last 8 is good but if you're relying on him it could be frustrating especially with Eze coming in and the possibility of someone other than Benteke or Edouard playing up top (like Zaha who has done it before). I've always like Benteke though had him for his decent period towards the end of last season but went for ASM now, still have Toney though so if it looks like he's Vieira's top choice I may still move for him

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        16 days, 2 hours ago

        This is why I stayed away initially

        But I always wanted a Palace striker for this run, if one of them emerged

        I think Benteke has emerged based on form. As in, it's now difficult to drop him. More of rests now, or a tactical switch like the City game. Before GW8, he had one assist, with Edouard not doing much better as a starter

        I'll jump off for DCL in GW19, but it can be earlier if he's back out of favour

        1. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          16 days, 1 hour ago

          That's fair, to be fair if he still starts the majority of games and has a few cameos he could still be a great option with the way he and Palace are playing right now. I'll definitely be keeping a close eye on him

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Benteke Dennis Watkins

      The forward line I am planning on moving to.

      Owning Lukaku, Ronaldo, Kane, Auba or Vardy just eating cash up while the budget and mid priced forwards provide more value as well cash for a solid midfield and defence which is where the points are this season, especially defence.

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        16 days, 2 hours ago

        I like my Wilson Toney Jimenez for the next couple weeks

      2. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        16 days, 2 hours ago

        I'll roll with Jesus Benteke (Hwang benched) now, CR7 Jesus Benteke in GW16,

        1. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          16 days, 1 hour ago

          ...Antonio in for Jesus in GW18, then DCL in for Benteke in GW19, to give this as the long-term spine/structure, with further transfers being around injuries, fixture swings, AFCON and DGWs:

          Guaita
          TAA Cancelo Chilwell James
          Salah Foden Gallagher
          CR7 Antonio DCL

          McCarthy Johnson Gilmour Brownhill

    4. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      16 days, 1 hour ago

      Certainly an interesting pick. Seems to be the go-to CF for Palace in recent games especially against the "lesser" teams. Didn't start the City game which I would assume was tactical.

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        16 days, 1 hour ago

        Yeah. I'm benching vs Man U, just in case. I'll play Tomiyasu vs Everton over him, I think

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          16 days, 1 hour ago

          Sounds good. Looks like DCL may still be out for that game as well

  10. Dammit_182
      16 days, 2 hours ago

      Folks, what’s the latest situation RE Liverpool and ACON? If they stay in the UK Until the Chelsea game it massively changes my transfer plans. Anyone know the latest??

        1. Dammit_182
            16 days, 2 hours ago

            Thanks. I guess we are waiting to know if Liverpool can hold on for the Christmas period or if they need to get there early. Nightmare!

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          16 days, 2 hours ago

          No midfielders are going to replace Salah or Mane so no point getting rid if you own them.

          If only Son can start firing...

          1. Dammit_182
              16 days, 2 hours ago

              Was wanting Mane as my Son replacement after Norwich basically. Not worth it if he is gone on Boxing Day though.

                Haha. Was wondering what the ‘f’ stood for

                Looking to do Duffy to James (-4) and need to downgrade somewhere for the 1.1m

                Which player is best to downgrade?
                1. Mbeumo to Gilmour (433)
                2. Toney to Dennis (442)

                    What do you think about going to a 4.4m FWD instead of Dennis i.e. having a dead spot over the Christmas period? it would leave 1m ITB to upgrade Raphinha to Jota (0.1 wiggle room) the following GW?

                      I like having a playing option on the bench so I’d rather have Dennis than a £4.4 non playing reserve.

                        Fair enough. Just thinking how many times will we have to go down to the 3rd bench option

                Salah 125 points and we are not even half way LOL

                2 FT 0ITB thinking Antonio and mbeumo to Gallagher and benteke/toney sound good?

                  You might want Antonio in a few weeks. I would lose Vardy instead as he has done nothing recently ( ok the same could be said for Antonio) but West Ham look a better team and you save more cash.
                  If you downgraded Vardy to fodder you could probably lay get Foden and Gallagher for Mbeumo and Bissouma.

                      But if you think he is a troll that’s just another reason to get rid.

                    I do like that actually. Pukki would be a nice fodder but could also give me massive rotation issues in the long run with all players fighting over the spots and would have to sit out 3 good players each week. Think Foden is better choice than jota?

                Is it possible to go without Antonio Bowen and Ronaldo when the fixtures turn and stick with something like this

                Guaita Steele

                TAA Chilwell James Cancelo Dias

                  Only if Son is flying

                  If not Son + Dias + Jota + Pukki could combine for CR7 + Antonio + Johnson + Gilmour

                    Thanks you must be looking at similar. The Johnston forDias move is really tempting for cash.
                    I have had no luck with Dias he has been benched or I have benched him with getting points.
                    Son has to be given the next 2 games but after that all bets are off. Antonio is scary to go without in a few weeks time if he gets his start of season form back.

                  I like the punt on Jesus. I'm also hoping son turns good

                Worth a -4 ?

                Williams, Antonio --> Chillwell, Benteke

                Currently only have Rudiger as my Chelsea defender.

                Now that Ole is no longer at the wheel, I’m going to miss watching Man United fans losing their stuff on YouTube over every defeat.
