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.

In this episode of Life Without FPL we talk to James and Dave, two of the creators of an FPL style game - Championship Manager 01/02 FPL.

We discuss how the idea came about, what the struggles have been with the game as well as the highlights and could the game continue even with FPL back.

In this latest episode of our lockdown Scoutcast extra episodes we continue to look back on the current campaign and the lessons to be learned.

Here Joe, David and Andy consider this season’s pivotal moments, where success and failure hinged on the right transfer, chip and captaincy calls.

They remember their biggest blunders and reminisce on the few times they were able to brag. Each of these sliding door moments will no doubt resonate with the community.

To help them look back they take a deep dive look at Fantasy Premier League World Number One Chris McGowen’s best moves. To find out what success looks like it seems only right to focus on the best.

The community’s own brags and blunders are also detailed as we assess this season’s highs and lows.

There’s some Virtual FPL chat too at the end as our trio reveal their latest moves and strategies for Ragabolly’s innovative lockdown game, which has attracted more than 3,000 managers already. Has our very own Top Marx unlocked the secret to this game’s ingenious algorithm?

This latest episode also features a shout out to one of the show’s youngest listeners, who was born mere days ago.

How important is a good Gameweek 1 to the success or failure of an Fantasy Premier League season?

This and other season start questions are among the issues tackled by Joe, Andy and Neale in this latest Scoutcast episode.

The football season and much of life as we know it may be on hiatus, but the Scoutcast crew are still on hand to consider the pressing issues facing Fantasy managers.

Here they look back at Gameweek 1 and their biggest successes and failures as they met the challenge of getting their 2019/20 season on track.

They look at how to select an early season bandwagon, the best bench decisions and whether big at the back is a good way to kick off a Fantasy campaign.

Neale and Andy also talk about how a hacking incident forced them to make some uncomfortable changes to their teams.

But this episode isn’t entirely about looking back.

Our trio find time at the end to chat about Ragabolly’s excellent Virtual FPL game, which has attracted almost 3,000 players.

While Andy is riding high in the league by missing transfers, Joe and Neale are considering a wildcard - due to a poor early start to the current, virtual campaign.


Welcome to Episode 2 of Life Without FPL - a podcast from Fantasy Football Scout that revolves around life outside of FPL transfer and captaincy decisions.

In this one Andy is joined by Chris who is the co-founder of Fantasy Football Scout. They discuss a range of topics including:

  • The history of FFS
  • The future of FFS

The lockdown, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, continues but there’s still plenty to discuss during football’s enforced break.

Joe is joined by Andy and David to help the community ensure their teams are in the best possible shape for football’s return at a later date.

They look at what state their teams were left in when the Premier League was postponed and how they are looking to take advantage of the Fantasy Premier League allowing transfers to still take place.

Here Joe ponders whether regular host Az was right all along, in a previous Scoutcast episode, when he said that his February wildcard was wasted.

Player motivation, the teams with the best fixtures and the impact of the break on team form are considered.

Elsewhere, the ingenuity of the community is also praised, as our trio look at the virtual FPL games taking place. This includes an indepth look at strategy and future transfers in Ragabolly’s Virtual FPL game.

Competitions around the Championship Manager game, both past and present are also pondered.

With such a long break since their last Scoutcast the crew also consider a range of other questions. Here they controversially reveal who they think is the best Scout, as well as give an insight into their reading habits. This includes a surprisingly football-focused autobiography recommendation as well as news from David that has not only been busy reading books, but writing one too.
