Inevitably, Zlatan Ibrahimovic stalks Episode 195 of the ScoutCast. Lauding over us like a Eric Cantona wannabe, the big Swede has wasted know time in getting Granville, Jonty, Andy and myself all in a tizzy.
Do you dare go without the Zlatan/Aguero double act? How do you adapt your midfield to accommodate the pricey pair? Will a wolf enter the Scout hut and interrupt the broadcast?
These questions and more are all answered over the course of another 70 minutes, as Jonty serves up our first "Rough with the Smooth" Gameweek tales from the community, before throwing us the best of your questions gathered throughout the week.
In other news, we're still 100 episodes short of Last of the Summer Wine. Stick with us guys, we're nearly almost there. Coincidentally, we also stopped being funny back in episode three.

Better late than never, the second ScoutCast of the season is with us.
Recorded earlier in the week and available on our YouTube channel since Tuesday, you can now grab the audio goodness via iTunes or the players below.
After painfully average Gameweek 1’s all round, Granville Jonty, Andy and myself throw out the “marathon not a sprint” clichés before taking on another bumper collection of community questions.
We contemplate Harry Kane’s fading star, bow before the alter of Zlatan and attempt to untangle the great Liverpool midfield puzzle.
Jonty gives Goals Imminent stats an inevitable airing as we preview Gameweek 2, as I stumble over the finish line, delirious with man-flu and paracetamol.

We were dressed for success, but success it never comes.
Suited and booted, we crown the new season riding a wave of giddy optimism. The positivity flows on the eve of a new campaign which, on paper, looks destined to be one of the best in memory.
Granville makes a belated return to ScoutCast action to join Jonty, Andy and myself as we start to sift the seemingly endless array of options open to us on the new season player list.
Bewildering stuff but, guided by you, the community, we attempt to navigate all your pre-season questions before laying our own cards on the table.
It’s amazing to be back amongst it again. Let’s just hope the smiles stay as wide for the next episode.
