Joe and Seb take stock of a season like no other for Fantasy Premier League managers.
After 38 Gameweeks the Covid-19 ravaged 2020/21 campaign is finally over. The health crisis has severely impacted on the schedule and player availability. FPL managers saw the first triple Gameweek in more than a decade. For much of the season they had to endure a slow drip feed of matches over several days to ensure more fixtures can be televised.
The lack of fans also played its part, with traditional home and away form often consigned to the bin.
While tough to navigate, it has had significant highs to couple with the lows.
Trusted heavy hitters, such as Harry Kane (£11.9m) and Mohammed Salah (£12.9m) often delivered when selected as captain. There was also a wealth of budget options, with Leeds’ promoted players among the stars.
In this final Scoutcast episode of the campaign Joe and Seb review their own performance amid the season’s chaos, consider wider lessons to learn for all managers as well as answer the community’s questions.
For the final time they also look back on their Gameweek scores and showcase the tales of woe and joy in a last look at Rough with the Smooth.
For Joe key lessons to emerge include the importance of having a strong start and be as flexible as possible with transfers. While Seb ponders why he often ignored, his team, Leeds’ best players.
There are also strong thoughts on how FPL managers can deal with the noise of social media and the fear of missing out.
Joe also explains why this tricky campaign ended being his most satisfying yet across his career and why he’ll be paying close attention to his ‘unfashionable players’ tables next time out.
The Scoutcast will be back next season when Joe and Seb will be joined by a new regular co-host. Look out for further news ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
Thanks to everyone who has watched, listened, commented and featured on this season’s Scoutcast.
