Meet The Team

Fantasy Football Scout is run by a team of dedicated individuals. Here is everything you need to know about them.

The Managers

David (@DavidMunday815): Editor. Former sports journalist turned Fantasy Football writer and handed the near-impossible task of replacing the legendary Mark Sutherns in May 2018. Had a pretty average FPL overall rank history before taking on this job but came out of 24/7 access to the FFScout Members Area in 2018/19 with a 17k finish. If that’s not an advert for Membership, we don’t know what is.

Neale (@SkontoRigga): Deputy editor and FPL veteran. Joined the team in May 2018 after years of loitering and now spends his time trying to second-guess Eddie Howe while writing the site’s team news. Ran his own Fantasy league as a pompous 12-year-old so well into his third decade of playing some form of the game. Still no better at it.

Paul (@FFScout_Paul): Head of Content. The site’s first writer (after Mark), he has been on board since 2009, or for three World Cups. Was also FFS editor for a number of years and is often the brains behind our most insightful Members articles and comparisons. Half-decent at FPL Draft.

Geoff (@FFScout_Geoff): Previously a moderator after years as a site regular, Community Manager Geoff is Canadian and brings the FFS team an international twist. Finishing 149th in his first season of Eliteserien Fantasy, he is now taking on the Allsvenskan game. With six top 20k finishes in nine FPL seasons, it’s time to turn consistency into excellence and replicate his finish of 49th place from the 16/17 campaign.

El Fozzie: The Scout’s Commercial Director is far from a newbie to either Fantasy Football or the journalism scene (he reminds us 3.4 times a day that he used to write for Total Football), Chris has forgotten more about this Fantasy lark than most people learn in a lifetime, which probably explains why he’s often found languishing in the lower echelons of the table.

Ed: Technical Director. The technical brains behind the outfit, Ed may have built these pages and the many boxes they sit on but his biggest claim to fame will be the time he topped the Premier League’s own mini-league. It didn’t last but, for a man who thought that Van Wolfswinkel was a particularly nasty internet virus, it was a lofty achievement.

The Contributors

Joe (@FFScout_Joe): After spending years dishing out advice as a community member we welcomed Joe into the team as a writer in 2011. His role has since grown and evolved over the years and he now takes charge of our video and podcast operations, hosting content for captains, team news and the Scoutcast.

Andy85wsm (LetsTalk_FPL): Originally from Somerset and now a resident of Ireland, this moderator has gone on to become a member of our Scoutcast team where his west country tones can be heard regularly talking about Manchester United differentials and his dreams of Alexis Sánchez finally scoring.

Az (ffscout_az): Fanboy turned member of the Scoutcast team, Az tries to use his doctorate in Psychology to play mind-games on others, but this mostly ends up with him convincing himself to make brilliant decisions, such as captaining Jesse Lingard. Did finish 817th a few years ago though…

D1sable: For those playing the Sky Sports Fantasy Football game D1sable’s knowledge is an invaluable guide in the race to the top money prizes it has to offer. He also spends his time featuring on the Scoutcast and supporting Manchester United from his base in the home counties.

Chris. Known as the professor among the Fantasy Football Scout community Chris is the brains behind the Rate My Team computer, which is available to our members. He is also a familiar voice, making appearances on the Scoutcast where he regularly proves machine can beat man in Fantasy Football management.

The Moderators

TorresMagic™: This moderator from Down Under has been around the Fantasy Football Scout community for an eternity. He can mostly be found patrolling the Dead Zone (12 am to 6 am UK time) in search of those in need of advice. Custodian of the very popular community competition Last Man Standing.

Ryan: As a New Zealand resident rugby is naturally Ryan’s first sporting love. But having been persuaded by a friend to play the Fantasy Premier League game he soon started to see the joys of the beautiful game with the spherical ball. This moderator now pretends to be an expert in all things FPL boosted by his desire to analyse stats and fixtures.

Spencer: One of the first names on our moderating team sheet, he is among the quickest at highlighting good and valuable posts and turning them deftly into ‘Hot Topics’. Despite having started playing in the 2011/12 season, he is probably most (in)famous for taking a -40 hit by forgetting to activate his wildcard.

Rotation’s Alter Ego: Having started FPL at the age of 8 in the 08/09 season, Rotation has grown up with FPL and joined the Scout moderation team at the start of the 18/19 season. As he is studying Maths and Statistics at university, he is only available when not studying – so that’s 23 hours a day.

G-Whizz: Ex sarf-Londoner living in Bournemouth who really (should at his age) doesn’t take life too seriously, until that life includes FPL, DS stats and clean sheet odds! Always up for a chat and can usually be found buzzing around on match days, the Dead Zone or even Twitter.

RedLightning: Played chess for many years at a fairly high level, but now prefers FPL which he started playing in 2009/10, even though he has not yet even had a top thousand finish. Joined the FFS moderation team in 2016. Also runs a few community mini-leagues including Top 10k Any Season and the January to May League.

Legomané: Fond of a tongue-twisting Hot Topic title (Can you Carry a Cameo Kamara?), Legomané is a recent enthusiast to FPL with an aptitude to Excel.

rainy: Having lived just across the downs from Nick Hornby, and now in an equally verdant corner of North America, grey skies mean home comforts to this Dead Zone denizen. Enjoys a new player and a price change, missing an Eliteserien deadline, and believing he’ll better an FPL finish of 3K one of these years.
