      Sounds like Mitoma likely to be out for Forest so I'd probably move him on for Mbeumo. Maybe Darwin next GW

    **NEW LEAGUE** UPDATE
    2500 POINTS ANY SEASON
    Code zzpxga

    Really good response to this so far. Starts Wk 13. Thanks to those who are already in. For those not yet onboard providing you have scored 2500 points in any one season then you will be able to join. The more the merrier.

    Thank you

      Forgot to mention that a former World No.1 (Jon Reeson) has joined this league. Jon notably achieved a score of 2668 points in 2009/10 when points were much harder to gather.

    Has the scout website been hacked, Hub style?

    Why has there been so many scams/spam on here recently?

    Can we get a statement from someone in the scout ivory tower to reassure us please?

      No chance - we are still waiting for the statement Parody Account Ed promised months ago about the gambling articles.

      1. have you seen cyan

        3 months, 12 days ago

        Apparently there is some way to filter ads here so you can opt out of gambling ads at least. Don't ask me how. If its this blue privacy tab on the right, well that's useless because you need to redo those settings every time you re-visit the site.

        1. Mirror Man
            3 months, 12 days ago

            The filters don't work but they've been looking into it for 4 months. Must be a very large and complicated filter.

              Yea, old website, hard to fix things. David did however mention this in an intro to a recent video from the other day. So not sure why he mentioned we could do it if we cant.

          He's the least shite player that isn't injured.

          Many have bad fixtures and many want Mbeumo moving forward so with nothing much else to do so players are moving a week early.

                You gotta own him to sell him . He gives me PSTD every time he plays. Slowly killing my season piece by piece. Don't want a long injury for him but wouldn't mind if he missed the Burnley game as I'm expecting him to sink me

                  I wouldn't worry about it, Bowen very rarely hauls. Just as you said, eats away at you over time.

                    He really does. One of them when west ham score and you pick up your phone to check sofa scores you have vomit in your mouth before you have opened it because you know what's coming and he rarely dissapoints. No idea why I still don't own him. Bad management I guess

                    1. have you seen cyan

                      He has been one of my favorite players in fantasy for a a few seasons now. I always rated him. Its never too late to accept a mistake. If you want Bowen, get him, when you know he is fine. Being stubborn about fantasy decisions never helps. For example, you make a bad choice, say you take someone out, they then start hauling, but you refuse to get them back because you look like an idiot. In situations like that, I think its better to just swallow your pride and do what you need to do. Only way to make a mistake worse is to let it get even worse by ignoring it.

                        Yeah I was thinking about it but it's deciding who to lose from Son, Trips and Saka and I don't want to lose any of them either.
                        . His price point isn't good now he's gone up so much. I will have to end the torture at some point though

                          Cant fit them all. I didn't have Alvarez for like the first 9 weeks. That was painful. But I kept rank, probably because I had Bowen lol. I then finally got Alvarez, and surprise surprise, he doesnt return anymore lol.

          Matty Cash

          If you watch highlights, he is always dashing on the back door of goal. His involvement is still very good. In fact, Villa usually bombs the box with people. Feeding frenzy. Cash and Digne lead the league in PK area touches for defenders.

          Watkins

          He's not a great finisher, but he get's lots of opportunities. If his opportunities are going down, you can expect fewer goals. But if the team is more conservative versus bigger clubs it means that Villa will not have 3 or 4 guys in the box attacking the ball. It will just be Watkins primarily. Today, you have Watkins, Diaby, Cash all in the box. With Zonozio (sp?) and Bailey also present when they are on the field. Against small clubs, go look at the box touches, crazy numbers for many players.

          1. have you seen cyan
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Cash is such a garbage pick. He got 2 goals in GW3, then became possibly the most over-rated player in the game, he has literally done f all for 5 weeks at least.

            1. have you seen cyan
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              If it wasn't for those 2 freak goals, he would be like 25th for defender points. As I said, he sucks.

            2. Alan Watts

                • 4 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                Perhaps, and I am being harsh. He has just been a useless pick for me, along with many others probably. If you took away the points from those 2 goals, he drops so far in points, down to 30. He would be equal to Botman, Botman who has only played 5 games, 5 games vs 13... that's shockingly bad.

                1. Alan Watts
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 12 days ago

                  You're right ..I was being a bit sarcastic....very disappointing....type of pick which will double figure return as soon as you sell, which I am considering this gw

                  1. have you seen cyan
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 12 days ago

                    Oh lol, wasn't sure haha. Haven't looked at his stats, but not good eye tests when I did watch.

                    I already sold him for James. Its early, but couldn't afford the price changes. And although James is fragile, the fact he wasn't part of the England squad gave me some reassurance. Plus I think everyone will get him, and I am willing to be early, hopefully he can haul in one of the ext. two and that would be perfect for me.

                    1. Alan Watts
                      • 5 Years
                      3 months, 12 days ago

                      Nice move, could work at well, think he put in a huge amount of crosses last gw

                      1. have you seen cyan
                        • 4 Years
                        3 months, 12 days ago

                        yea he looked good, and looked quite determine to score.

              I'm not saying he's going to net you 200 points for the year, just saying that he is in the box and Unai's system give Cash opportunity.

              He's like a super cheap Chilwell (when not injured) on a less defensive team.

              When it comes to defenders, the "occasional" goal guys lead the points by freak occurrence. Even Watkins has almost 1/2 of his points from two games (35 of 80)

          Have Torres, Luiz and Watkins. Plan would be bench Torres this week, play the others and hope it is indeed a open affair against Spurs. Play all 3 against Bournemouth and then sell Luiz and Torres after that. Palmer and Gordon are on my watchlist.

                oh right yea. Yea your plan sounds ok tbh. I think most people in your position will do similar. But you might have to eat one or two price drops. Maybe you don't need 3 for Bournemouth, even if it is a good fixture.

          Gtg to save FT? 😉 0.9 ITB
          Haaland (C) unless it seems too risky after we know more.

          Areola
          TAA - Trippier - White*
          Salah - Son - Mbeumo - Eze (VC) - Palmer
          Haaland (C) - Morris

          (Turner, Archer, Taylor, Tsimikas)

            I like it.

            But TAA is risky against Doku and Haaland.

          Forgot to make trannies last week so got 2ft now. Sitting 59k OR. Have done Maddison to Palmer. Thinking arsenal defender in for Tavares with 2nd ft. Struggling to seperate white, Gabriel, Saliba, zinchenko. Any insight into who's most secure for starts and who has most attacking potential?

            This is the ultimate flex. No idea what’s going on but sitting comfortably in top 60k. Well played

                I have Saliba, think he’s best due to nailedness through the Xmas period. Never know if the others may miss a game

          I bet no one in the England squad could show you where North Macedonia is on the map.

                  Germany 16th, below USA, Morocco & the Swiss, incredibly. The rankings are laughable.

                    The calculation method is pretty well known, but I'm sure they can use some input... it's FIFA after all.
