  1. Hazard's latest display in the false nine role furthers FPL concerns 8 days, 7 hours ago

    Yeah. He moved alongside Winks in the second half when Spurs went 4-2-3-1. Lamela, Alli and Son ahead of him in those three attacking midfield positions. Dier's back soon, like, so he'll be an extra body at DM. Alli my preference but for the price, Moura is intruiging. » Read

  2. Hazard's latest display in the false nine role furthers FPL concerns 8 days, 7 hours ago

    Yeah, I'm likely keeping for Arsenal (a) and Bournemouth (a) - neither of whom is capable of the stultifying performances of Newcastle, Palace, Southampton etc. Sell for Huddersfield (h) 😀 » Read

  3. Injured Wilson misses out but Fraser is fit to start 9 days, 6 hours ago

    He's just a little expensive, he's still good, he's still good! » Read

  4. Hazard still carrying Chelsea attack despite the return of injured trio 13 days, 7 hours ago

    Mentioned above that Willian and Barkley were poor. Alonso does seem to get a disproportionate amount of criticism from Chelsea fans (to be fair, Willian gets a lot of flak too) but the issues with him are completely separate to the team's creative issues. » Read

  5. Hazard still carrying Chelsea attack despite the return of injured trio 13 days, 7 hours ago

    I think the criticisms of Alonso are different in FPL circles than they are among Chelsea fans.For FPL owners, it's a bemoaning of his lack of attacking returns in the last ten Gameweeks.From a Chelsea perspective, Alonso has long been viewed as a defensive liability and they are keeping clean sheets in spite of, rather than because of, his performances. Not that Emerson offers much different (he also seems to be much better offensively than without the ball) but I think many are wondering why he hasn't at least been given a chance in the Premier League given how substandard Alonso has been of late. Sarri has come out in the past and highlighted the reasons (presence at set pieces being one) why Alonso remains pivotal to his plans, though, so a drop doesn't seem to be forthcoming. » Read

    From tomorrow onwards! We'll get our first batch of pre-weekend pressers on Thursday morning/afternoon so it'll be gradually refreshed from that point. » Read

    Thanks very much! I'm mulling over that very same decision... » Read

    I was indeed the author.I completely get what you're saying, of course. If A happens, B likely doesn't follow suit.The article titles can be sensationalist in nature at times but we're in the age of SEO (a concept completely new to me when I started here in the summer) and something we're experimenting with this season to see what the impact is. It doesn't mean the titles/articles that follow should be misleading at the same time, of course, and that certainly wasn't the intention here. The content for Scout Notes especially is something I would resist the urge to dumb down.The "if you need a freelance editor with experience" line was on the insulting side, though, particularly given we were hired for exactly that. Not that I'd class myself as a proper journalist, of course - far from it!But anyway, constructive feedback is always welcome and encouraged. Which is a good job, as there's plenty of it on here 🙂 » Read

    Fair enough point. Not sure it's quite worth that level of vitriol, mind. » Read

    A late-in-the-day 'Merry Christmas', folks. Hope GW19 is good to you all, though I suspect it'll be total carnage. » Read
