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.

Some training has resumed among Premier League teams and top flight leagues are planning to start or are already underway across Europe. This gives optimism among Fantasy Premier League managers that the 19/20 season can resume soon.

Ahead of the return of England’s top tier of football the Scoutcast turns its attention to the current campaign as Joe, Neale and Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy consider the best players of 19/20 so far and for the rest of the season.

While many of their selections are those that have racked up the points for them throughout the season, they have also focused their choices on players to target once the Premier League has been given the nod to resume.

There are restrictions too. They have two picks per position and one for each has to be a budget option. A one player per team rule is also applied, so that they don’t flood their choices with Liverpool players.

Meanwhile, Ragabolly’s Virtual FPL is discussed, as they consider how remarkably well this lockdown distraction is mirroring real life FPL. Their future moves also come under scrutiny, especially how to deal with Wolves and Man City’s upcoming great virtual fixture run.

In this latest episode the Scoutcast crew have been handed the tough task of picking their favourite ever six FPL players.

With so many to choose from they have had to make some tricky decisions.

There are restrictions too. They can only pick one player from one team they are most famous for playing with. And while they can select two defenders and two midfielders, just one goalkeeper and forward are allowed.

Joe is joined by Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy and Fantasy Football Scout deputy editor Neale to narrow down their selections.

There are plenty of surprise suggestions with our trio all starting to play FPL at different points in the game’s history.

While there is agreement among a small number of their selections, the bulk of the names are from widely different teams and eras.

This episode also ponders which team has been the greatest source of FPL legends over the years, as Joe, Andy and Neale also mention some notable cult favourites of yesteryear.

Elsewhere, Ragabolly’s Virtual FPL gets an airing as the crew discuss their contrasting recent fortunes and next moves.

For the last two years Joe has been interviewing many of the best ever FPL managers, in Fantasy Football Scout’s Meet the Manager series.

In this latest lockdown Scoutcast episode Joe is joined by FFscout editor David and Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy to discuss the key tips for success to emerge from those interviews.

This includes how to be a fearless maverick manager, making the right calls on high points ceiling players at exactly the right time.

Spotting bandwagons that are worth hopping aboard, while keeping a close eye on squad value and the market is another area of advice.

A balanced approach, and the nuanced strategy of using price points is also on the show.

Meanwhile, being an opportunist in the transfer market and knowing when to stick to a tried and tested strategy are among other issues covered.

Our Scoutcast trio marvel at some of the consistent top finishes from the Meet the Manager interviewees and above all look to see what they can learn to become better managers themselves.

Elsewhere, Ragabolly’s Virtual FPL gets an airing as Joe and Andy discuss their contrasting recent fortunes and next moves. Both are trying out new strategies in this game as their Meet the Manager chat spills over into this virtual discussion.

In this latest Scoutcast extra we focus on how Fantasy Football can impact on our mental health.

Joe, Andy and Neale consider the emotional challenges of being a Fantasy manager and how we can tackle them. This ranges from serious gaming addiction disorders to coping with the fall out from a poor Gameweek.

The impact on social media on Fantasy Premier League managers’ mental health is also discussed as our Scoutcast trio also look at the positive mental health benefits of Fantasy management.

They consider how the FPL community can be a great source of comfort, especially in tough times such as the current Covid-19 lockdown.

The community’s views about the emotional impact of being a Fantasy manager also take centre stage, as they candidly take us through their highs and lows of the game.

Community regulars like Ragabolly are proving an enormous comfort to FPL managers, having ingeniously created games to keep us happy during lockdown. His Virtual FPL game has already attracted thousands of players, including Andy, Joe and Neale. They chat about their contrasting fortunes playing the game and top tips for the coming Gameweeks.
