    Decent. I would think Useful in my mind, seems to imply they would come in handy.

    Talk about giving the guy different anwsers.

    To settle this, just look at how many stars a decent guy has, and how many a useful guy has.

    Haha, though that would happen. It tepends, though doesn't it. In this case I agree, just look at the stars, stats, and if appropriate if work permits are eligable.

    Perhaps in future Fms should change the word decent and useful to helpful differentiate them.

    I think SI should do away with the stars altogether and just go with comments - but just expand the comments from half a dozen to hundreds. That way, it would seem like an actual person talking to you about a player instead of a computer making an evaluation based on numbers. Maybe that would even lead to doing away with ratings altogether?

    In the USA, regarding baseball, players are quantified with a 20-80 rating system on different skills (speed, defensive range etc), but that is a sport where there is more statistically quantifiable evidence for such things. Football does not provide the same environment for a rating system. I would love a plain language scouting system. How about it, SI?

    In future they could use the jamie redknapp rating system.

    I would think that "decent" means that he'd be okay, could do a decent job on a pitch. "Useful" seem to indicate he could actually contribute something in particular to the squad, question is what?
