  1. Currently managing Southampton & England U21. When I go into my national pool, the ability column is empty for most players, assuming this is because it is taking the club scouting reports not national. They have all been scouted by my national pool but they don't show up unless I go into the player profile. This is very frustrating when I am trying to pick my team, I just let the England assistant do it (I have no U21 Assistant as it is very hard to sign someone for the job). I cannot attach the game file as it is too large. As from the Screenshot all the abilities are Unknown, then I go into a players profile and go in to the national report section and its there. How do I get the national reports to show up consistently in National Pool.
  2. I think I have a problem with the scouts. I'm at the first half of the season and I have had two scouts return without any report on any player. My team is in the second tier of the Russian football pyramid (First Division) and I don't have any money to sign players (which I'm fine with). I did search for players on certain positions with a limited budget set on €250k and I also searched for players who are nearing the end of their contracts. I have also asked for a general search for the country and the scout came back with nothing. I think the highest current rating I have set them was 2.5 stars. No reports or whatsoever. I'm playing FM17. How can I change this and make sure the scouts come back with actual reports? Also, do scouts load up reports during their time on duty or after? They used to do this during the time, but this may have changed since I played the FM14 version.
  3. I'm a bit confused by the combination of coach reports and scout reports. When looking at a player you have on trial, for example, why are they kept separate, and why do the coaches' reports just disappear once the trial ends (which there is no reason they should when they could just be filed along with the old scout reports)? Also, the scout reports show the percentage of knowledge they have reached, but a coach report does not, leaving you no way to know how complete a picture the coach currently has. You can see how much knowledge of your squad each staff member has, but it would be unfeasible to flip screens and extrapolate that into a guess on how accurate each individual reports are without it telling you. This also brings me to wondering why scouts (especially those who have a higher "judge current ability" attribute than my coaches) are not able to give me a report on my own team on the squad depth screen - if you can force your assistant manager out on an assignment to scout someone else surely you can have your own staff hired specifically to judge players look internally as well. All of these seem like relatively easy things to tweak - just make scouting a little more consistent and clear across the board regardless of who is doing it and when or where - put all staff reports in the same categories, kept and sorted the same way regardless of the type of staff they are. Trials are often a good way to work around scouting difficulties, though they used to be considered a bit of an exploit as players would suddenly become 100% scouted the second they came through the door. Now I feel like now we've swung the other way a bit too far and trials are a bit underwhelming... I mean, if you get a lad on trial for a week it's just that - you're trying him, meaning that after 7 days on your training ground and a friendly or two played you shouldn't still have absolutely no clue (even a range of) how pacey he is, for example. Surely when you are testing a new recruit you would intentionally make a point to have him go through the motions of determining his attributes, even if it takes the whole week to get a fairly complete picture, no? I'm currently giving a 6th tier side a go while I wait for the new release and so I'm pulling in a lot of trialists looking for frees and it's just a bit slower going than I anticipated, but perhaps it's only reflective of just how poor my staff are at this particular level?
  4. I posted about this in the feature request forum asking for a sort of "fix," but I thought I would put it here as well for a more general discussion on why this is how it is, etc. I'm a bit confused by the combination of coach reports and scout reports. When looking at a player you have on trial, for example, why are they kept separate, and why do the coaches' reports just disappear once the trial ends (which there is no reason they should when they could just be filed along with the old scout reports)? Also, the scout reports show the percentage of knowledge they have reached, but a coach report does not, leaving you no way to know how complete a picture the coach currently has.

This also brings me to wondering why scouts (especially those who have a higher "judge current ability" attribute than my coaches) are not able to give me a report on my own team on the squad depth screen - if you can force your assistant manager out on an assignment to scout someone else surely you can have your own staff hired specifically to judge players look internally as well. Ironically it seems your scouts do in fact have reports on your players, they just aren’t visible. This is evident in the way when they scout a player you can see that player compared to your own squad members in the same position in the report, but you can’t see the reports of your own squad members being used for said comparison and there’s no good reason why that is unless I’m just completely missing something. Can we just make scouting a little more consistent and clear across the board regardless of who is doing it and when or where, and put all staff reports in the same categories, kept and sorted the same way regardless of the type of staff they are? Trials are often a good way to work around scouting difficulties, though they used to be considered a bit of an exploit as players would suddenly become 100% scouted the second they came through the door.

  5. Why I am managing Arsenal, Ben Wigglesworth (scout) stop sending me scout reports of opposition teams? Please help. I've got a new scout and he replaced him. How do I set scouts for opposition reports where he can suggest which tactic to use? Thanks
