The Fantasy Football Scoutcast
Let Mark and Granville sniff out your clean sheets and assist your fantasy football season with a regular serving of stuff and nonsense from the English Premiership. News and analysis is mixed with lively banter between the two bitter mini-league rivals as the pair laugh off a life of mid-table mediocrity.

The latest ScoutCast brings the curtain down on another Fantasy season as we take the opportunity to navel-gaze and conduct a full retrospective.

New signing David makes his debut, while Granville is a late arrival to join myself, Jonty, Andy and Az to form a six-strong crew.

We start by appraising Gameweek 38 to report back on a dramatic final day at the top of the Fantasy Premier League. Then we take the lead from your final round of community questions.

Our best and worst decisions, our most disappointing and inspiring signings and early targets for next season are all revealed. We even consider the lessons learned to offer advice on cracking the top ranks – for what it’s worth.

Then, after another season of ScoutCasts, we pick out our personal on-air highlights.

We thank you in advance for sticking through this, our longest ever episode, and for listening in over the last nine months.

Next season we edge towards 300 and finally reach the Last of the Summer Wine target. Granville has the bathtub at the ready.

The ScoutCast crew are desperate to lift themselves after falling victim to one of the most underwhelming Double Gameweeks in memory, though with five matches still to come, there remains a tinge of optimism.

Granville, Jonty, Andy and Az join me for a full strength line-up as we begin the post-mortem on Triple Captain failure and unrewarded points hits.

The five of us collectively kick ourselves for ignoring Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as the foresight of one leading Fantasy Premier League manager sparks debate on how and why the masses overlooked the Gunners’ striker.

Mohamad Salah’s untimely slump is also assessed as we’re guided by your community questions, before we look ahead to Gameweek 38 via our handpicked selection of differentials designed to lift our spirits come Sunday.

And, while we’re in a reflective mood, we also take time out to consider our early lessons learned from the campaign, with much more to follow in next week’s final episode of the season.

The ScoutCast crew are joined by the current Fantasy Premier League pacesetter in this latest episode, as world number one Bharat Dhody drops by.

With ice flowing through his veins, Bharat risks the curse that has seen us dent the title tilt for previous top-ranked managers to join myself, Jonty, Andy and Az for a ScoutCast season highlight.

Inevitably, the four of us are a little star-struck, but in between our desperate attempts to convince Bharat to keep his cards close to his chest, we put his season and current mindset under scrutiny.

Elsewhere, your community questions lead us by the hand as we assess Harry Kane’s updated application for the Triple Captain role, review the merits of a Mohamed Salah exit plan and scratch around for Double Gameweek differentials.
