I just started listening to the GW1 news one with Jonty + 1 and they touched on the possibility of choosing Milner as a third Liverpool option.
Have they just time travelled from 2016?

I did see one with Fab as 2nd GK. I'm not certain who was 1st choice but I think it was Ederson. 😎


I was tempted to write a parody of a Pod\YouTube 😂😂😂

When listening to Radio 5 earlier, I heard that they now do a 606 Fantasy Podcast. Haven’t listened yet, but as it has to appeal to the masses I imagine it won’t have much value.

Have to say, I think I'll call it a day tuning in to scoutcast. I just started listening to the GW1 news one with Jonty + 1 and they touched on the possibility of choosing Milner as a third Liverpool option. Credibility hits rock bottom. I could almost feel myself getting worse at FPL with every word listened and had to switch off. They did have a fun recollection podcast last week with Granville (one of the two originators, alongside Mark) in honour of it going so long - and 'so long' is what I think I'll have to say to it, with Granville's bookending being a natural finale. :(
It's terrible isn't it. I'm not really keen on Mark but at least he offered somthing FPL wise. Jonty may know how to play FPL but is plain annoying . I'll not start ranting about Munday Az and Andy as they are everything wrong with the game today and the final nail in the scoutcast coffin for me :lol:

I'm not sure that is going to try to be serious though. It sounds more like the Prog they had way back when with Baddiel.... ie it has people who have not played before, so I believe. I can't remember who it was, but might have been Townsend saying thst it was difficult as he wanted to pick players for positions.... and, I think, Sutton being criticised for not having 2 playing GK's.

The first episode was last week was pretty anodyne. Just about listen to ep2.

In other news, Luke and Az have stumbled into "FPL Mavericks" which is on the same feed as one of them ran their Black Box thinking on and off last year. In a crowded field it's not going to win any prizes either.

I suppose any wide-appealing podcast is going to be incredibly bland. I just found it cool to hear JR talking about niche topics such as 4m Lundstram. :lol:

Had a listen to FPL Surgery today, yawn.

I was confused why David Munday was invited on to dish out advice in between creaming about Mark Sutherns when Munday’s a pretty terrible FPL player (bar last season).

I can only assume that Surgery’s focus is on likes and retweets from the FFS followers, rather than suppling genuine quality advice.

It’s a shame that most of the guests on these podcasts always seem to be part of the Twitter community who imo, are dull, uninsightful and sometimes pretty crappy FF players tbh.

If any FPL pod hosts are reading this, try freshening it up and invite some FISO posters on who are genuinely interesting to hear from - namely Patrician, Stemania, dod, raoul and Ironfist, even if they only have 12 followers on Twitter.

It’s like Sky inviting Dean Windass into the studio while Gary Neville sits at home with his feet up.

Ironfist would be hilarious :lol: :lol: :lol: Sissoko is....

I haven't watched any this week as the Preseason ones were so lemming based.... I'm not bothered if they have a good history or not, just if they have interesting stuff to say as opposed to formulaic stuff prompting "intelligent" discussion.

I cracked and have had a few on as wallpaper noise....

The "Official" one has the 2 from FPL Family whichI mentioned above where she talks far more sense, or less nonsense than he does which has its amusing moments...

Anyone who takes fantasy football advice from Bumfluff Munday deserves everything that happens to them as a result.

If you’ve read this thread, you’ll see that a FF pod needs to be sensational to impress the folk of FISO. If it’s aimed at the ‘masses’, I don’t fancy your chances here.

But good luck nevertheless!

Have to say I am really liking the PlanetFPL pods atm, releasing multiple pods a week which cover different topics rather than the one big one on a Monday/Tuesday that is out of date if you don't get to them by Thursday.
Probably not the best FPL players doing pods but James especially clearly knows football and that is a big benefit to someone like me who can't watch that much football over the weekend.

Good luck finding that Blah. The 10 seconds of intro music at the start will tell you what to expect.

I have no idea how podcasts can ever stand out from the crowd as it's essentially "how did you get on this week" "what's your plan for next week". This one when straight at it within 20 seconds! As it was a new podcast I thought there might be a intro from the presenters, maybe a bit of background, etc. Nope. Read out your teams, read out your score.

Plus the Aussie accent is only marginally better than listen to someone running their fingers down a blackboard.

Next.

After 5 minutes skipping through, that was one of the worst so far, sorry bench boost but I agree with the above.

What’s you USP? It’s bland and very unimaginative.

How difficult is it for these pods to add a little creativity? What are the niche topics FPL managers are discussing on FISO or Twitter? Expand on those! Nobody cares how your team performed.

Tbh I did almost laugh at one with Lund as 1st Sub, but then he started going on about "I could have benched Moura for him" and other idiocy.

I gave the Luke and Az show (FPL Mavericks) another go. There are actually small shoots of encouragment there, particularly Lukes mini (really mini) rant about people commenting on RMTs without Salah and how people "hang out the back of him, like he's god's gift". This could be a USP for them if they decide to say it how it is - much like some on here have the ability to do quite eloquently.

The harsh reality is, most podcasts/youtube channels hosts are not very good at the game, you get the odd few who are (or who have stand out seasons here and there) but most of them are not, if you can be bothered to listen to them you have to take them with a pinch of salt because they all say the same popular thing (that week) & you risk getting sucked into playing their game which is not always a good game.

The one thing about them all is that they are all passionate about the game, they shouldn't really be knocked for that, I'm not listening to any this year, even the Scoutcast is no longer worth it, since Sutherns left theres not much to tune in for, Jonty is a good player but hes often more focused on glossing over his mistakes or telling everyone how wonderful he is when he gets one right, no one wants to see that, the rest are just passionate people talking about fantasy, I'm not sure you'll miss anything if you give them a miss.

Forums & tight groups are still the best places for content/chat.

Welcome back, kidda...

Apologies, but they can be knocked and mocked as they YouTube etc so they think they are wise, and they definitely aren't entertaining. My guess is that any Ranking Claim to Fame is just from following the masses...

The strangest thing for me is that none of the ones I have watched seem to consider any real football stuff ie formstions, tactics the skill\ability of the player etc. Jeepers a Benteke brace this weekend and they'll all be buying him 😂
