Should I trust scout reports of players and the star rating which they give the players or should I just look at the players attributes myself?

Both, compare them. If they player plays well but isn't rated by your coaches then who cares. I had a player that was rated so highly, up to one of the best at the club, yet played terrible. He had average ratings of 5.5-6.5, I'm not sure why, he had all the stats besides jumping, but just failed at defending.

I'd go for a bit of both. The attributes are the most important thing but the stars will give you a good idea if he's likely to improve.

but are the stars accurate and do they depend on the quality of the coach?

The stars are not 100% accurate. They depend on the attributes of the coach/scout and they are also just opinions from the staff, rather than just a report on the actual ability/potential of a player.

thanks, I might just ignore them and make my own judgement.

They're definitely useful (in fact, the only thing there is) for judging potential.

Can I like disable stars?

They influence me too much and make me go against players...

Exactly. For older players it is less important as what you see is what you get, but they are essential if you are looking for a player who will improve as he gets older.

You could remove the stars columns from the player search/shortlist screens but you will still see them when you look at the scout reports.
