  2. Scout Notes - Spurs Battle Back 6 days, 2 hours ago

    Yep, that's the current school of thought that I'm going with and many others.But there is still a case for FH in GW31 and the FAC results could sway me back that way. » Read

    But who are you considering for Shaq over this next three? Clearly if you can upgrade significantly then that's fine, but in my squad, budget restricts what I can do. » Read

    I certainly trust Shaqiri - arguably we should have him regardless of GW31 the value he's currently hinting at. I have to trust Pickford as I'm not going to make a change in goal regardless - few of us have the luxury of swapping keepers in and out.Walcott - possibly a risk but the signs are good and the fixtures are favourable enough for him to produce something over the next three. » Read

    But if I spare two FT's going into GW31 then that's another two potentially added to Salah, VVD, Firmino, Walcott, Shaqiri, Pickford - which I already have/might have.That would make 8 players so you'd have to hit 3 players that nail it in GW31 to better that - that's not easy from a small talent pool.Yes, a Hudd or Palace player could score big but can you isolate and get that player? If you miss, you could argue that you've wasted the FH.And yes, I'd WC in GW32 to clear the GW31 players, prepping for GW34 double. » Read

    Yes, it is puzzling - partly the reason why we just use the simple xG value in tables. The data is accurate - it comes direct from Opta, but the shots on target xG value is difficult to work out. Let me try to dig out some definitions or drop Opta a line. » Read

    Hi xG shots on on target is the expected value of only his efforts on target. The other is his expected value for all shots. » Read

    Jeez. Good point. » Read

    A lot of days before we need them though. Wonder how Conte will explain this one. Prolonged fatigue? » Read

    He aint coming on if it's a hammy! Not in squad. » Read

    He also broke the Morata story this morning.Mixed feelings on this - Ogbonna off the bench but may have got more from Marcos. » Read

    This is it! I'm the same.I was woken up by my son arriving in our bed last night so I retreated to the spare room. While lying awake I was devising an end of season article - as you do - but while I could list my villains - Bobby F, Morata, Christensen - I couldn't think of one hero just yet. Not one I could genuinely claim as my own.In previous seasons I've had 2-3 I'm sure - King last season was incredible as I got on early and he just blasted it for me.More on the ScoutCast, but I think my lack of these characters has made me force things this season. » Read

    This is it. When did I fall out of love with the guy? I think it's just I'm Kane obsessed. » Read

  16. FFS Charity Football Tournament 8 days, 1 hour ago

    Yeah, brilliant stuff from Peter and Will - so glad that we were able to get in touch with Simon's family too and get the charity sorted.I'm coming along. Currently looking into whether I can sort a trophy in time. » Read

  17. Scout Notes - United On The Slide 8 days, 1 hour ago

    Blimey...I'm still preparing my head for GW31.I think it's very difficult to look ahead until we know how the FA Cup ties fall - I'd even want to see the draw to try to predict the semi-final line-up.GW28 postponement would also change everything.I think the key target is that future Triple Captain, though. I'll start with that and work back from there I imagine. » Read

  18. Scout Notes - Salah Delivers 8 days, 7 hours ago

    Indeed, and you have to think that the earlier you WC, the more you can exploit it - if, of course you play it well. » Read

  19. Scout Notes - Salah Delivers 8 days, 7 hours ago

    I'm still not decided. We have to look at how the 5th round pans out, the teams that get through and the quarter-final draw.I've carried my transfer to give me as much flexibility as possible. » Read

  20. Scout Notes - Salah Delivers 8 days, 18 hours ago

    55 with Marcos and Eden to come.So I'll have 59. » Read
