  4. Scoutcast Episode 374 – 'Unfairly unfashionable' FPL players on the radar 2 days, 12 hours ago

    1. FFS was profitable when Mark owned and ran it. There was never any question about survival, just a decision to make the primary aim maximising revenue. 2. FFS as it was has not survived. What exists now is essentially a completely different site with a fundamentally different ethos, it just uses the same logo and superficial style. 3. I'm not romanticising the past. What I have said about what has happened is factual and FFS has lost much of what made it great thereby. » Read

    I have taken the survey, not sure why. The problem, Az, is that you are focused on "what's working and what's not", in other words on the detail. But the biggest factor that has driven many people away is "what FFS has become" and that's a very different question. It's about the underlying intention of the site. Once it was a hub of keen managers - good managers and good posters - comparing notes and working things out together. You remember that I am sure. There were original posts, original characters and many of the best articles were written by community members that others knew and respected. Then it started to transition to a commercial model, in which monetisation became the primary purpose. When 'experts' were hired to write articles they weren't the ones that had done and provided that research free of charge previously; they were new people that no-one had heard of, hired not because of any connection with FFS but because they had a twitter profile. The poster abo… » Read

  6. How many Spurs assets are the Scout Network considering for DGW32? 3 days, 9 hours ago

    As expected by who, though? Do you realise that it's likely to be a matter not of when the fixtures are but something as arcane as how FPL moves the GW deadlines. A big DGW35 is by no means set in stone, it could just as easily be a small one (4 teams) with no BGW in GW36. Don't see Ben Crellin twitter page. Think it through for yourself. » Read

    Try PEA(c) Alonso(v) on wildcard. That takes some doing. 😆 » Read

    Yes, he may well get a game or two. » Read

  11. FPL Gameweek 31: The key player and team statistics 8 days, 13 hours ago

    Then it's not final unless you just want compliments. I don't want Bruno, got rid quite happily weeks ago and see nothing to make me want him back. Am on wildcard myself this week and he won't be in my team. Dias won't play every game, neither will Rüdiger. Phillips cuts Jota out permanently. You need better cover than Lowton (although Dawson for 0.1 more would probably do). I'd say you need to spend around 1.5m more at the back, get rid of Bruno and create an overall sharper front-8. Salah, Lingard, Kane, Vydra are all OK but the other four need improving. If that allows you to take a 1-week punt on Jesus(c) then fine but that should be the last tweak. Those are my thoughts, which you asked for. 😉 » Read

  12. FPL Gameweek 31: The key player and team statistics 8 days, 13 hours ago

    If it's final why do you want thoughts? Jesus(c) is a very good idea but planning a -4 the week after a wildcard is atrocious. One injury and it's a -8. The GKs are weak, the defence is weak, Raphinha's a rank poor choice and why the hell do you want Bruno? Get rid of him and you can have a proper team. » Read

  13. Who is the best FPL captain for Gameweek 31? 9 days, 1 hour ago

    Yes, because it's not clear that Nuno will play him enough. If he were a reliable starter he'd be a great choice. » Read

  17. Which Arsenal players are most likely to avoid rotation during season run-in? 10 days, 7 hours ago

    The general idea of dealing with GW31 captaincy in that way is OK but Sterling(c) would require a number of dominos to fall just right. Sure, he'll probably start and if so that would be hurdle #1 jumped but he'd still have to deliver something worthwhile, which is hurdle #2. The guy below expecting 4 City goals is in fantasy land. City, with a much-changed team, will want to control that game above all and will be entirely happy with a safe 1-0 if they can get it. In addition, Sterling hasn't exactly been tearing it up even when he has played, his poor form is what got him onto Pep's naughty step in the first place. For the manoeuvre to work, Sterling has to bounce back with a bang exactly when you want him to. There's nothing to suggest he will and that's why I see it as a dumbass move. 🙂 » Read

    Yeah, she's shrewd like the investment bankers that walked away with billions that everyone else had to pay for after the event in 2008. It's about time the word shrewd was replaced by the word predatory for people like that. » Read
