Granville was expected to miss this week’s Scoutcast. Flagged as a 25% doubt, we drafted in Andy off the bench in preparation for our resident Mancunian to go AWOL as he wallowed in the misery of his 30-point Gameweek.
To his great credit, he proved us wrong.
Granville crashes in from the off to join Andy, Jonty and myself in another episode that he describes as “cathartic”, as he rolls out the full directors cut of his woeful tale from Gameweek 15.
Spouting such gems as “someone has to be unlucky and it has to be me”, Granville adds an essential ingredient to a packed and lively session.
It’s helped along by Jonty’s endorsement of “playing the percentages”, roughly translated as the “Dullard’s 101”, which has the four of us at loggerheads.
Once the dust settles on that debate, we tackle further questions from the community, featuring Jonty’s latest love letter to Aaron Ramsey, before rounding off with our preview of Gameweek 16.
