The Fantasy Football Scoutcast
More than a decade ago Fantasy Football Scout launched its first first podcast – the legendary ScoutCast. Since then it has expanded to include an even wider range of expert opinion, stats and laughs to help you sniff out the likeliest clean sheets and best buys. Fantasy Football Scout’s podcast family has grown further in recent years to include captaincy and team news editions each Gameweek. Meanwhile, our regular Breakfast Club episodes add further analysis ahead of each deadline. There’s also our Meet the Manager series to check out – which sees us chat to Fantasy managers with a stellar track record of success.

After a bruising Gameweek 29 the ScoutCast soldiers are ready to wage war on the remaining fixtures of 2018/19.

Helping them out is regular listener FPL Reuser who has come up with a cunning plan for Fantasy Premier League success that involves collecting a strong arsenal of sturdy shields and razor sharp swords. 

Joe, David, Luke and Andy discuss the best shields, which are high owned players needed for protection against red arrows. Also covered are the finest swords, which refers to low owned players with the perfect combination of points potential and solid fixtures.

Getting the right combination in place may well be the Holy Grail of Fantasy management the ScoutCast has been searching for over the last decade. 

Our merry band of podcast pugilists also find time to look ahead to the upcoming blank fixtures, in Gameweeks 31 and 33, with a particular focus on the best Liverpool and Bournemouth assets to own.

While Az couldn’t attend due to other commitments he did find time to drop by, in the Youtube chat during this episode’s live streaming, to set the ScoutCasters straight about the Everton defence.

Elsewhere, David lays into Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo and reveals how a discarded plastic bag is now dictating his transfer decisions. 

The ScoutCast troops also mull over the key decisions facing them in Gameweek 30, including the best differential ‘swords’ to acquire, the likeliest clean sheets and their transfer and captaincy plans.

Finally, this episode ends by flagging up the work of the charity Anthony Nolan, which carries out fantastic work saving the lives of people with blood cancer.

This follows the news from community member FPL Poker Player that his daughter was diagnosed with leukaemia last year. While in remission she still needs a bone marrow transplant. People can help support the work of Anthony Nolan by making a donation or signing up to be a bone marrow donor.
