I couldn't find a specific thread on FM2012 for new ideas so started a new one.
I would like to see a new and improved scouting system which includes a similair idea to the CASTROL player rankings/ratings system for a more modern and efficient scouting process. This system uses a players total minutes on the pitch against different stats, such as goals scored for a striker, or interception/tackles made for a defender etc, and then ranks players overall in a big list. This accounts for both european and domestic football seperately or together. If you are unsure as to what I am referring to, just search CASTROL player rankings or ratings into google and you will find several sites, including the official one explaining all you will need to know. Several high profile people have praised the system for making scouting and identifying new talents much easier, Sir Alex Ferguson for example - http://www.goal.com/en/news/2939/cas...-modern-player. Copy and paste the link to view the interview with Sir Alex Ferguson.
Many managers have seen the benefits it brings to scouting in the modern game, and I for one would love to see this in football manager 2012.
