  1. So many great stories to read! I'll never keep up! Great stuff, looking forward to more, especially since I was born just outside Minneapolis, and my parents are from the Duluth/Superior area.
  2. Right click on the player, and then under scouting select a longer length of time, 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 months, etc. You can either choose a scout or select scouting pool, and let the chief scout decide who does it.
  3. To add to this, if you want to be able to choose who to assign to scout next opposition, you need to make sure that you are the one responsible for setting scouting assignments on the Staff Responsibilities page, not your Chief Scout or whomever.
  4. Need More Info

    Posted this elsewhere. Here's some data I compiled on this subject. Was thinking about this tonight after one of my players missed another penalty. I totaled up all the penalty stats for the Premier league teams. Thru 23 games the total league wide was 38/54 (70%) and my team had the worst percentage (of those with more than 1 penalty - 2 teams were 0/1) at just 2/5. There were 4 other teams in the league with a similar number of penalties - 6/6, 4/4, 5/6, and 4/5. I was the only team that had more than 1 missed penalty. For a real life comparison, here's a link: http://www.myfootballfacts.com/Premier_League_Penalty_Statistics.html In the past 10 years there was only 1 year lower than 74%. in 2011/2012 the PL total was 71/99 (71%). One other year was 74%. Every other year ranged between 78-84%. This season the totals are even better so far at 19/22. Obviously, a 75% save rate is just a little bit hyperbole. However, I'm either extremely unlucky, or something is worth looking at. If I had made 2 more penalties, the league total would bump up to a low, but still very acceptable 74%. Maybe I have just been the unluckiest team in the league and things will even out by season's end. It's at least worth bringing attention to, though.
