‘Gameweek 39’ charity football match to raise money for Street Child United

On Saturday, members of the Fantasy community will gather in Birmingham for a North v South charity match in aid of Street Child United.

Some familiar names and faces will be taking part at Castle Vale Stadium, with the match kicking off at 2pm BST.

All the proceeds from the event will go to Street Child United, a charity set up to aid vulnerable children through the power of football.

The gate receipts will contribute to this total but any non-ticket donations can be made via this link, where the current total has surpassed £3,500.

Fantasy Football Scout have contributed £300 to this tally via money raised from the ‘super chats’ on the Friday Q&A video with Az, Sam and Gianni.

About Gameweek 39

Arranged by Benny Blanco and FPL Hints, the match will feature the likes of Az, Pras, Gianni, Ben Crellin, former Scout editor David Munday and many more.

There is even a bespoke Fantasy tournament for this match on Gaffr!

    Majority are probably already aware but you can watch the CL final for free on YouTube tonight even if you don’t have BT Sports or anything.

      Yeah they’ve been showing the final on there for a few years. Good info for anyone unaware.

        Yeah I doubt it helps anyone to be honest but I’d hate to think someone didn’t tune in because they didn’t realise they could.

      You can watch it on BT Sports too, even without a subscription.

        Oh nice, didn’t realise that - thanks, guessing that’s probably better quality (plus probably a fair few can’t get YouTube on their tele

          I think it may be on their website or App only, not sure about via Sky box.

      Looking forward to this game, expecting Modric & Benzema masterclass.

        I fancy a 1-0 Liverpool win but you wouldn’t put it past them!

          We'll get the CL final here, but i'm not sure about the Champo play-off final tomorrow.

    Keen to know if there’s been any developments for Bale to return to the prem next season?

    Rodri price prediction?
    Nailed in my team if he’s less than 6.5!

      Really, not much fun waiting for weeks for 1 screamer.

        Was returning quite regularly towards season close

      I probably wouldn't buy him at 4.5m. He's not worth using up a Man City slot for.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        He's on my list, for 5.5 or less. Haaland, Rodri and a defender, maybe Laporte.

      Why is he nailed in your team? He'll get around 100 points again. Not really a bargain is he

      1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Yes but late season form indicates more returns next year! And it’s the City potential, bit more exciting than say watching Mbuemo or someone for Brentford instead at that price lol

          Remains to be seen, but my hunch is City will change the way they play to bring out Haaland's strengths, and this will allow more breaks from deep by Gundo and Rodri. His position also puts him at the heart of ball recycling, helpful for passing baps. Thirdly, he'll play more games than other Peptated midfield options.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
            • 5 Years

            Yeah exactly, could be worth jumping on early, little risk if he’s cheap enough

            Peptated - I like it.

    Hoping there is a 4.0-4.5 budget wonder like the Lundstrum and Dallas of past in this upcoming season.

      We never really know who they are until the season is underway.

        True, but pre-season sometimes gives an indication.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          I've far too often been suckered by a cheapo who excelled in pre-season only to not get a minute PL football before I sell him!

    2. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      On the last Blackbox I think Mark said he was going to ring FPL to make sure they don't give us any strong 4.5m options.

      Strong budget options would enable us to get all the big hitters like Haaland, Salah, and Son. That would be game breaking, and make for a boring season with little variation between teams. I want difficult decisions and headaches when picking a team. No handouts please FPL!

      Trouble is it then just becomes a 14 player game as everyone gets him

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Not really. I mean Livramento was the 4m must-have last season, then he went off the boil, then he got injured. We were all over the place trying to judge whether to start him, bench him or sell him.

          Congratulations to Tranent Juniors.

          I did enjoy seeing every recent non-league side who's been promoted to the Scottish league got promoted this year:

          Cove Rangers, Keilty Hearts, Edinburgh City. Bonyrigg Rose should get a successive promotion next season.
          These clubs are actually well-backed.

    PL Clean Sheets - Last 5 Seasons (teams who have kept at least 13 CS in the season)

    2017/18: Man Utd (19), Man City (18), Liverpool (17), Chelsea (16), Spurs (16), Arsenal (13)
    2018/19: Liverpool (21), Man City (20), Chelsea (16), Everton (14), Spurs (13)

    2021/22: Liverpool (21), Man City (21), Chelsea (16), Spurs (16), Arsenal (13)

    Chosen 13 CS as the minimum to reflect a greater than 1 in 3 return rate (> 33.33%)
    Non-Big 6 teams who have made appearances: Everton (1), Burnley (1), Leicester (1), Sheff Utd (1), Wolves (1), Aston Villa (1)
    Be careful of reading much into 2019/20 season as that was a Covid interrupted season (PL took a break in March 2020) and VAR was introduced.

      What’s your point? Two of these teams are not even still in the Prem and it’s hardly a revelation that Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea have good defensive records.

        Hazard will probably get injured during foreplay and Bale will be focused on getting to the final hole in as few moves as possible.

        1. GreennRed

    So UEFA are expecting us to take hits unnecessarily because I can't complete my squad without taking a -12!?

    1. GreennRed

      5 FT and no need for subs. Teams will be named before deadline.

        This is what I'm saying. I've taken the 5FTs but can't complete transfers!

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Hedge it with 8 or 9 starters and less hits? Unlikely either team will keep a cleansheet. Casimero unlikely to get attacking returns but can do good on recovered ball points. Vinicius could carve TAA up on Real left. Can see him outpoint Diaz tonight.

      Nah - all you Real advocates are going to be disappointed. One goal in 120 minutes with two attacking teams who don't have water-tight defences. I don't think so, and I hope not too.
