What good is the rest of the season, without the cold thrill of winter fixtures to give it sweetness.
With nine Gameweeks to cram in from now to the end of the year, seasonal planning will be more important than ever for Fantasy Premier League managers.
It’s a mammoth challenge that the ScoutCast crew are looking forward to despite the annual cold snap that is about to descend across their teams.
In this latest episode Joe is joined by Holly and recent Meet the Manager interviewee Tom Freeman to look ahead to the festive fixtures and consider shaking up the template, notably addressing Mason Mount’s recent poor returns.
Holly is particularly well placed for the Christmas chat after penning a recent Pro Pundits article on winter fixture planning.
Meanwhile, Tom’s patient approach, which includes hanging onto his first Wildcard, makes his advice invaluable at this time of year. For Joe, he recommends planning for not one, but two, winter mini-seasons over December.
Navigating Liverpool’s schedule is also looked at, especially how to contend with their great run followed by a blank fixture in Gameweek 18.
Elsewhere, the crew consider the implications of Tottenham’s sacking of Mauricio Pochetinno, a story that broke just before they recorded this episode on Tuesday night.
Clean sheets, Gameweek 13 transfers and captain plans plus an audacious differential recommendation from Tom are also covered in this packed, hour-long, all chiller - no filler episode.
