Overthinking? It’s what we do – don’t dare ask us to stop. Particularly now that our heads are swimming with thoughts of blank and double Gameweeks. All those variables, all that planning and strategising: we’re in our element. Once again, thanks to another bout of community questions, Jonty and Andy join me for another ScoutCast dominated by chatter surrounding our tactics and transfers approaching the missing fixtures. We break off to nominate the new Premier League whipping boys, while we also ponder whether to proclaim Sigurdsson as “essential”, revisit Coleman vs Baines and assess whether the blanks are reason enough to be rid of Alexis Sanchez. For my money, that’s one decision that requires very little thinking.

Comedian Greg Fitzsimmons has done stand-up everywhere you've looked, from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to Late Show with David Letterman to Late Night with Conan O'Brien to Chelsea Lately. Then there's his wildly successful podcast, Fitzdog Radio, as well as his Howard 101 radio show, the eponymously titled The Greg Fitzsimmons Show. Let's also talk about those appearances on @Midnight and Best Week Ever, among other shows, his acting on Lucky Louie, his writing gigs on Ellen, Politically Incorrect, Chelsea Handler and more and his book, Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons. And yet, despite those myriad accomplishments, would you believe that Fitzsimmons is a guy who says he lacks confidence because believes he's lost his mojo? Yep, that's where we got after analyzing his issue with those sorts of overconfident dudes who give you the hand-crushing shake and slap you on the shoulder. What does this has to do with his radio personality dad and being a middle-class kid at a high school filled with the children of billionaires? It's all in the episode, folks.
