As we look forward to the 2022/23 season, we at Fantasy Football Scout are frantically working behind the scenes to make improvements for our site users and subscribers.

We have a number of exciting developments in the pipeline but we’ll need an additional body or two to help us roll out the changes we have planned.

We are therefore looking to add two new recruits to our growing technical team – a full-time full-stack developer (mainly back-end) and a part-time front-end developer.

The details are as follows:


FULL-STACK DEVELOPER

Time: Full-time but hours are open to negotiation

Skillset Required / Tools Used

Front-End:

  • HTML, JavaScript and CSS
  • Sass
  • React
  • jQuery 
  • Bootstrap
  • AJAX

Back-End:

  • API design and development
  • PHP
  • MySQL
  • Apache
  • WordPress
  • Ubuntu
  • Ansible
Experience
  • BSC Computer Science or related 2.1 min
  • Two years minimum commercial experience

FRONT-END DEVELOPER

Time: Part-time but hours are open to negotiation

Skillset Required / Tools Used
  • HTML, JavaScript, and CSS
  • Sass
  • React
  • jQuery 
  • Bootstrap
  • AJAX
EXPERIENCE
  • BSC Computer Science or related 2.1 min

We mostly work remotely but, on the odd occasion, we like to get together in person – so if you are able to travel to London now and again, that would be beneficial.

However, those that work outside of the capital should most definitely still apply. Talent is more important to us than postcode!

Flexibility of hours is also preferable.

Based on past experience with our job adverts, we need to stress that it may take a little time to look through and respond to applications.

If you want to get involved with the next chapter of the site, please drop us a line with your CV at jobs@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk.

      I knew he might want to put his feet up at times but didn't think that meant signing for FFS

      Hi mate

      Just to let you know I've put the Top 10k Finally league in your name. Do with it what you will.

      Taken myself out as I don't really use this place at all nowadays.

    Just think this time next week everyone will be panicking as Trent, Saka, Ramsdale and Jiminez are all questionably out (Jimenez is 100%)

      We will hopefully get some news before the GW starts. Have two of those + Raphinha.

        I have all 4 and a non playing backup keeper.

        Might bring in Pope and Weggy

    2. Holmes

      not worth panicking, gives an option to go full differential

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Trent and Saka should be fine.

        Any insights into Ramsdale?

    6. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 15 days ago

      I have 3 but 2FTs, will see how it goes. I think TAA will be fine but moving him to Robbo was already a consideration, Ramsdale is a bigger worry for me with Foster as backup against Liverpool

    So chelsea has 6 games in 18 days after IB.

    2nd April vs Brentford (H)
    7th April vs Real Madrid (H) CL
    9th April vs Soton (a)
    13th April vs Real Madrid (a) CL
    16th April vs Palace FA Cup semi ( Blank gw)
    20th April vs Arsenal (H)

    Is it worth getting Reece James in now?

    Have a feeling Tuchel might manage his mins given the ipersisting injury concerns lately.

    His upside is huge though.11 attacking returns in 13 pl starts

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 15 days ago

      Currently, I'm thinking - yes, I'm very wary of Chelsea's schedule & will limit my team to just one Chelsea (much as I'd like to get James & Havertz). But James probably needs some minutes before Real Madrid, and if he starts Brentford, a plausible pattern seems like play RM, rest Soton, play RM, rest Palace, play Arsenal. Its speculative, I know, but if there's a chance he only missed one league game then I definitely want him

      1. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 15 days ago

        I'm in a similar line of thinking. As long as I don't have any further injury/availability issues from the IB, my bench is fine and I have 2FT this week so I'm in a good spot to get him in now. I haven't had any luck with either him or Chilwell this season so I'm hoping getting a bit of a jump on him now will work out.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Its a 50-50 I would say

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 15 days ago

      It's a hard one to call, I don't think it will turn out to be a disaster, Klopp has spoken about TAA (and Liverpool on the whole) defending better lately and it seems Robbo is the main attacking outlet so it may do you better. Thinking about it myself but really it'll depend on TAA's injury. If he's out I'll do it and stick with it for the remainder of the season

    3. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      I'm thinking of going for James instead for the extra 1mil. But no, not a mistake; I think it could be a good move considering current form

    4. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      Robbo injured too no?

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years

        Or ill rather...

          • 12 Years

          Apparently it's not Covid. It was being described as a bug.

  11. Sharkytect

    anyone else considering selling kane for ronaldo on a gw31 wildcard? Would set up well for next 3 gameweeks and then intend to swicth back to Kane for rest of the season.

    Ronaldo has the extra fixture, but Kane is in sensational form - am I being swayed a bit by that hattrick?

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      I'll be doing that. However, I'm also considering Ronaldo instead of Salah, then downgrade Ronaldo to get Salah after 33 allowing to keep Kane.

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 15 days ago

      I think it's a crazy move personally. Ronaldo has been hit and miss, he's only returned in 2 of his last 9 games. Yes it was a good hattrick but even with those fixtures I'd put more trust in someone like Sancho than Ronaldo. Kane is in imperious form and has a good run of games until the end of the season, things look like they're clicking for Spurs now. He's returned in 6 of his last 7 games with 4 of those being 2+ returns. I'm not saying Ronaldo won't get any returns but Kane is the form player in the league right now.

    3. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      I wouldn't consider it....

    4. Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      I am also on a GW31 WC and hadn’t even considered that move but yeah really like the idea.

      I would be tempted to get Ronaldo and keep Kane but ditch Mo. What could possibly go wrong.

      1. Rassi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 15 days ago

        Nothing. Pure profit.

    5. WVA
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      Owned Ronaldo for far too long earlier in the season, won't be doing it again!

  12. waltzingmatildas
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 15 days ago

    I'm starting to lean towards a GW33 BB (have BB and 2 FHs left)
    Which do you prefer?
    A) James and Elanga
    B) Cancelo and Brownhill

    1. WVA
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      Honestly neither.
      Why not FH 33? There may be a better chance to BB

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 15 days ago

        My team value is pretty bad, so not sure how I'll be able to afford the decent assets from the bigger teams

  13. Rassi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 15 days ago

    Tempted to do TAA + Jimenez --> Kane/Ronaldo + fodder if TAA confirmed out.

    Just wanted to share because I am sure you are all super interested in my plans.

    1. WVA
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      I will sell TAA if out too as below, Kane over Ron all day

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      I think there's too much negativity around sharing teams and plans. It helps to write things down and if you give context for why, it can help other people with their own thought process.

      I like reading other people's ideas especially around transfer priorities. Sometimes they come up with plans I didn't consider.

      1. WVA
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 15 days ago

        Strongly agree with the last bit, love it when I see a plan or move I didn't consider that was better than my idea.

    3. Hutchiniho
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      Always good to share.
      If TAA out, easy swap.

  14. WVA
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 15 days ago

    TAA and Digne to Robbo and James with my 2FT (exact cash too)?

    Mendy
    Robbo Cancelo James Tierney Doherty
    Salah Son Coutinho Saka
    WEGHORST
    Foster Kulu Antonio Broja

    Bench Kuluselvski or Coutinho?

    1. Hutchiniho
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      Easy move

  15. Hutchiniho
    • 3 Years

    More Clean sheets ROS

    Burnley or Palace?

  16. DavvaMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Thoughts on the below teams, which one looks belter?

    -----------------------------------------------
    Team 1 - 0.5 ITB
    -----------------------------------------------

    Dubravka

    James | TAA | Robertson | Laporte

    Mount | Son | Havertz | Saka | Salah

    Lacazette

    Matthews / Mateta / Schar / Greenwood

    -----------------------------------------------
    Team 2 - 1.5 ITB
    -----------------------------------------------

    Dubravka

    James | Robertson | Laporte | Cancelo

    Foden (Mount) | Kulu | Havertz | Saka | Salah

    Kane

    Foster / Mateta / White / Cucho

    Thanks

    1. Hutchiniho
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      So. TAA, Son and Laca
      vs
      Cancelo, Kulu and Kane ?

      B

      1. DavvaMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 15 days ago

        Yes more or less team B also has a stronger bench.

    2. Reinhold
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      B, mostly because of Kane.
      I'd have Mahrez over Foden.

  17. Hutchiniho
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 15 days ago

    A.Maddison
    B. Barnes.
    C. Mount
    D. Havertz
    ROS?

    1. Reinhold
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      Almost impossible to say without more info, but they are all decent options

      1. Hutchiniho
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 15 days ago

        Straight up.
        Midfield currently sits as
        Salah, Saka, Ramsey and Mahrez
        Def, Cancelo, TAA, Rudiger, Robertson

        Always look to spread my teams last 2 months of the season.

        1. Reinhold
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 15 days ago

          Think I'd choose a Leicester mid personally, but far from sure that is correct.

  18. Reinhold
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 15 days ago

    Care to chip in on my strategy from here? I'd be happy to return the favor.

    Dubravka* / Schmeichel*

    TAA / Robertson / White * / Ait Nouri / Doherty

    Salah / Saka * / Barnes * / Kulusevski / Gordon

    Kane / Lacazette* / Toney

    2FTs. 1xFH, BB and TC still to play.

    I'm trailing pretty hard, after a horrid first half of the season, so I need to make some high-variance moves probably.

    My thought is to aim for a GW33 bench boost, as I have to doubling keepers and decent SGW players that week. Likely transfer this week would be at least Toney -> Weghorst, and maybe something else?

    Another option is to slap the TC chip on some player in GW33, and start building towards a team with more City and Chelsea, perhaps.

    Thoughts?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      That definitely looks like a BB33.

      I'd do something like BB33, FH36, TC35 or 37 depending on where the fixtures fall and who is in form.

      GW34 you just take some hits for City players imo. That will set you up well for the run-in.

      1. Reinhold
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 15 days ago

        Yeah, sounds like a good plan. Would be lovely if a nice TC fell to 35 or 37.

        I've actually also considered a FH 34, to triple up City against Watford at home and Chelsea against West Ham at home. But maybe I am overestimating how easy it will be to get a good team of full doublers out for GW36 without a chip.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          4 months, 15 days ago

          It will be very easy to get a full team of doublers out for GW36. The difficulty is making those doublers good hence FH36.

          1. Reinhold
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 15 days ago

            Yeah, and being able to choose the players likely not to be rested that match is worth a lot too. For all we know the league may be over at that point, even

          2. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            4 months, 15 days ago

            With so many doubling there's loads of routes to points, even if you don't have all the premium picks in gw36.

            BB33 and you've got Leicester, Southampton, Newcastle players to sort through.

    2. Reinhold
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      Possible GW33 Bench boost team without any hits:

      Dubravka (CPL, LEI)

      White (sou, che) / TAA (MUN) / Mee (whm, SOU)

      Barnes (new, eve) / Maddison (new, eve) / Fernandes (NOR, liv) / Saka (sou, che)

      Kane (BHA) / Lacazette (sou, che) / Weghorst (whm, SOU)

      Bench: Schmeichel (new, eve) / Kulusevski (BHA) / Doherty (BHA) / Robertson (MUN)

    3. Hutchiniho
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 15 days ago

      Safe starts but think No City will hurt.
