  1. We should have the ability to create Scouting assignments separate from the actual scouts. For example, - I would like to create a South American scouting assignment, with various attributes. I would like to create another South American scouting assignment, with various attributes. I would like to create a European American scouting assignment, with various attributes. Now, I would then like to assign my scouts to the Scouting assignments I have created. What this means, is I have the ability to a) move scouts between assignments easily and b) retain the assignments I've created even though I lose scouts through retirement, poaching, firing, etc. This becomes a logistical issue with bigger clubs with 20+ scouts. When I've lost a scout or one is poached away from my club, it takes a while to determine which scouting assignment I've lost, then either rework current assignments, or I need to hire a new scout and recall that missing assignment while I wait for the new hire. It's worse if I look to replace multiple scouts at the same time.
  2. As per the title - I never seem to be able to find many players via the Scouting Centre. I don't understand what influences this however - how many reports do you get through the scouting centre? And how do you set it up? Background / Reputation I'm playing as Celtic - it's the 2022/23 season and I'm off the back of a Champions League Semi-Final previous year and Quarter final the year before (plus domestic dominance). In other words, the clubs reputation is growing - 3.5 stars / about 52nd highest in Europe (not huge) - as is Scotland's (now 8th in Europe in terms of Nation Club Co-Efficient). I would expect this to mean more players would be found in the scouting centre - as higher reputation means more attractive to players. Scouting Setup In the Scouting Centre, I have the Scouting Responsibility set to "Manager". I have 6 scouts assigned to - UK and Ireland - Central Europe - Eastern Europe - South Europe - South America - World Cup (usually Scandanavia) There's no restrictions at all on the scouting assignments - they are just on-going. The board themselves don't place any restrictions on Scouting Assignments. I would expect to find more reports as there are no restrictions on the scouting. Chief Scout He has 17 for Adaptability, JPA and JPP. I note he's not very determined (is this influential?) Targeted Scouting Now.... I do a lot of targeted scouting - e.g. getting reports on players from player search / from clubs I look at ad-hoc. That I would expect to take away from the number of players found - but not to the extent I only find 3 in 16 months (e.g. Eastern Europe - only 3 reports since July 2021 - it's November 2022). What should I be doing? How can I find more players via the scouting centre?
  3. I am a big fan of bringing players in on trial. While at a lower league team, it's not uncommon for more than a hundred players to have a trial with my club over the course of a season. This has been the case for years, going back further than FM08. And I like the changes to trials that have happened in the last couple of iterations - I like the idea of the slow reveal of a player's attributes over the course of the first week, I appreciate the verisimilitude of a board saying "Uh no, mate, we're not doubling the town's population this week just so you can look for cheap players; enough's enough", and I like that lower-level teams are more willing to allow contracted (or Non-Contract) players to leave for a week or two for a trial. All good stuff. But, there's a bit of an issue with how this interacts with Scouting. If I've got a player on Trial, training with my team and presumably taking part in any practice games they have, I don't mind scouts identifying this player and recognising if he's any good. However, it takes until a Trial ends for one of my scouts to slap a 'number' on a player, but a Scout report - and I've seen this happen - can be given for a player who's only been on trial with a club for a day, enough for a club to become interested. But a day into a trial, I'm lucky if I know what any of a player's attributes are as a fixed number, while the star rating is often 2-3 gold stars and then the rest black. Sure, there is a star rating and a coach report from the day a player arrives, but it starts off wildly hit-and-miss and not actually much use for a human player (who will probably want to avoid signing a Poacher-style player with 3 Pace). Also, partway through a trial, I still have no idea what sort of contract I need to offer to get a player to sign - something I have a much better idea of after a scout report. It also kind of removes part of the point of a trial. If I could scout a player anyway and get a recommendation on him within a week, it's not actually any more beneficial - within that week - to get him on trial for that time. (And yeah, there are some players who can't be scouted, but can be trialled, I know.) I don't want to get rid of the things that make trialling good, but I wonder if it can be tweaked to make it a more viable option. Maybe Physical attributes are revealed quicker, maybe more Hidden attributes are flagged up, maybe we get a bit of qualitative information about the player ("He's just going through the motions", "He's getting on really well with Player X") or expected wage demands are suggested.
  4. I'm doing a youth only save and have hired one chief scout for the next opposition scouting, is there a point signing anymore? The only thing I can think is they may improve global knowledge and occasionally get some extra youth players, is there any affect on youth pulls from them? Thanks in advance.
  5. An extra scouting screen that is laid out in the same format as Team Report>Squad Depth but which allows you to drag and drop players from your shortlist/scout reports into the relevant positions on the pitch (with selectable tactics/formations) in to the order of priority with which you want to target them. Your scouts/backroom staff would also provide feedback on your targets based on their findings and tactical suitability. For example you might have a targeted list of strikers as below: 1.Jovic 2.Pellegri 3.Haland 4.Romero If Jovic were then to be bought by another club you would receive feedback from your chief scout suggesting you might want to update your targets. Your assistant/member of your backroom staff might feedback during monthly reports that Haland would be better suited to the way we play than Pellegri so you might want to consider changing their positions. Your scouts might return a report on a player and suggest changes based on their findings "I've just returned from scouting Dembele and suggest that he is made our top striker target". I think it would also be good to be able to view a scouts assignment findings by ranking based on your current formation; so for example for a scout that has been assigned to the Eredivisie you would be able to see the top 5 players they've found by position/role. This could be collated by the Head Scout/Data Analyst into a regular update based on scouting input.
  6. I'm coaching a poor small club with limited scouting staff and resources. I'm scouting for players, and can invite them for trials or scout them. It seems that trial invitations are immediate (the player comes over the next day), whereas scouting my take one week (or game) or more. Is it possible to see how much a trial invitation (per week) costs to my club? And the cost of scouting one player in my country? If so, where in finance please? Which are the pros/cons of trial versus scout, at least from a financial/cost point of view? Thanks,
  7. Hi, It's been a few years since my last FM but i haven't been able to fix this. I am playing with the Juventus, and am reciving team reports from random teams, most of them that seem to not have enough details to load. The scout chief says "this is the report that 'X' scout made. It's a shame there is not enough details about this club' or something like that. They are little clubs, most of them with a few players. When i go to the profile of the scout that made the report, his current assignment is next opponent. Why is this happening? Neither of my firs team, s-23, s-20 or s-18 plays againsn't these teams he is scouting. Off topic: I want to play with a friend, but his PC is really old. If i am the host, all the proccessing is done on my end? or is it still demanding for him.
  8. I noticed that the same players are being scouted by my staff twice or three times in a row, as I'm informed in my inbox. How do I stop that please? (I had to switch scouting assignment responsibility to me from my Chief Scout because no scout was reporting on the Next Opposition. But I since switched it back to the Chief Scout, and this is how the problem of repeat scout reports on same players appears to have started.) Thanks.
  9. I’ve just got a player on loan for a season with the option to buy for £12 million. However, he’s not convinced to join the club on a permanent basis. Can he change his mind to join the club permanently once the loan ends/or in the winter transfer window? Is there any way he can be convinced to join? Thank you!
  10. It would be awesome to add one extra button to the scouting system. Image being real madrid last year and you lost Ronaldo to Juventus. Real should look for 'the new Ronaldo' I have this problem in mulitiple saves that I sell my star striker and it is hard to find a replacement. wouldn't it be helpfull to add a button at the scount where you say. Look for .... who can take over the place of my recently sold striker. Then your scouts will look for a player with similar stats of your sold plays. and you will see in the report how much similarity this and you can compare the stats of your old striker.
  11. Hi guys, I'm after some thoughts on how to best set up my individual scouts before and after the newgen dates. I understand that I can find a list of all Youth Intakes through the World - Transfers tab, and then I can scout every single player at each intake date. However this is time consuming and also difficult with a small team of scouts as there can be hundreds of players coming through at each date. Obviously the AI will be able to identify the best newgens earlier than me, so I'm looking for some advice on how to stop missing out on the best young talent that comes through each season. A few years ago on FM, I found it easier to bring in quality 16/17 years old and build a strong unit from U18 age group up to the seniors. Though I do think it is better now that maybe less are coming through and/or they are more difficult to identify, i'm currently playing a save where I am aiming to bring through a new 'Class of 92' 'Pep's Barca' etc.... Thanks for the help in advance. I know many of us love the scouting part of the game and i'm sure plenty have some useful tips to pass on...
  12. Hi, first time football manager mobile user on FM19. I started a career mode the other day and want my scouts to look for a striker, however I cannot for the to assign my scouting team to search for a striker. When I assign a scout to a country, I just keep receiving central defender recommendations. Does body know how I can change my scout's position search to striker instead?
  13. Hi, I have suddenly realised that all players INCLUDING my club's are listed as "scouting in progress". No matter which player I click, it will show this. As a result, my scouting seems to stall and all my assignments are like not progressing. 1. I am on the latest update. 2. I manage my own scouting. 3. Have tried letting my chief scout manage scouting, same result. 4. Have cleared all assignments, same result. Please advise.
  14. What is the point in the discard list currently, other than stopping an agent recommending that player? I would like the option to remove all players from a search if I have added them to the discard list already. For example, I am searching for a midfielder who is on the loan list, and Stephen Ireland is in my discard list. However he shows up in my options for midfielders who are listed for loan. If there was an option to remove these players in the filters it would just make scouting that little bit less tiresome. Great game so far though. Really enjoying it.
  15. So i was just scouting when I had an idea. The problems with scouting are that there are many players like those on the bottom of the screenshot that you will never ever sign. You scouted them and you know, you will never look at them again. After a year or so of no scouting at all, their stars will disappear, essentially you have to scout them again because you dont know how bad they were. Also it makes those lists really long. Now what would be awesome is just by right-clicking to be able to hide a player and via filter menu in the top right corner you could later still decide to re-appear hidden players(for whatever reason) The problem is, that there are always so many unknowns, and if you could hide players, those unknowns would always be new players you never scouted before - saving a lot of useless effort

    Data analysts.

    Hi, How about the chief data analyst learns your style of tactics and suggests players that would slot in seamlessly with your tactics? They could also highlight players from different leagues to notify you of them 'over perfoming' given the league/team they're in. Giving you an early opportunity to secure their signature.
  17. Firstly: Big praise. I like the scouting centre. It's nice to keep that away from the normal mail box. Scouting is a big part of my game, so here is some suggestions, that I hope you would take into consideration. And thank you for a great game. Been here since 94. 1 - Scouting Strategy I would though like to be able to set a framework for the scouts to work in. For example I am playing as Aalborg in the Danish Superliga, and I have set a goal for myself only to use Scandinavian players – I would like to be able to tell my scouting team (or make it a club strategy), that I am only interested in Scandinavian players. I am also running a philosophy of developing or buying young players. It would be nice if I could tell my scouting team that I am not interested in players older than 17, 18 og 19 or whatever. I would also like to be able to tell my scouting team, that I am only interested in players playing the position in my current tactic(s). There is no reason for them to suggest me a wingback, when I don't play with them. So basically the posibility to create a ”scouting strategy”. As it is now there is just too much information that you have to give a thousand times – like nationality or age or say no to players who doesn't even play any positions in my tactic. 2 - Shortlists and scouts integrated I would like the shortlists and scouting to be more integrated and automated. Shortlists are nice, because you get alerted, when things happen around those players – bids, end of contract etc. What I would like is for me to be able to make a shortlist based on certain stats. That could look like: Fullback Right footed 17 or below Minimum 8 acceleration Minimum 8 crossing etc. The shortlists and scouts would be integrated and the scouts would automatically add players fitting the conditions to the list, so I don't manually have to add or remove players. If a scout saw that player once more and he no longer lived up to the conditions the scout would just remove him again. 2.5 - Keep knowledge level of shortlist up A small side note – if you could give your scouts an overall instruction to always keep your knowledge level of your shortlisted players over etc. 80 or 90 – that would be great. 3 - Scouting responsibilities I would like to give my scouts responsibilities for a country or region. Right now I can set them to scout Sweden or Denmark ongoing. But if I click ”scout” on a player based in Denmark, he is added to the scouting pool and just scouted by a random scout who's normal appointment is scouting Finland. It would make so much more sense, if the scout already in Denmark scouted the players based in Denmark. I don't even really understand how that's not a thing – the scout should just always be the scout physically closest to the player. Once again – thank you for a great game and making the scouting centre. Love this game. - Simon
  18. When playing as an MLS Club it is annoying to see these long lists of players your club has rights to and not knowing basic Information about them. All it gives is a name. To find out anything about him you have to use the search bar and then scout. You club should have them on some sort of searchable shortlist. This would be invaluable at end of season especially before the Draft. Also annoying when AI controlled team wants to trade for his rights and then you find out you could have used him for your team because he is better than player drafted or Transferred from Europe.
  19. I think it could be nice to add any column we want there, and if not add there option to check current scout recommendation. So we can sort it and cancel assignments which are until full knowledge easier. I mean just this view: Currently is hard to view each player, their recommendation, multiple select them and fail it some times and do it all over again.
  20. Hi Just been thinking about an earlier post I made about the restart option being missing for your scouts, for example if they have been scouting the major top leagues, like I always have mine do, once the season is over you have to start again and re-assign. If I have my chief scout assigning the scouts they always seem to just scout general focus, so how about this idea. In pre-season (and at the very start of your first season) you assign which leagues, competitions and/or regions you want scouted that season, your chief scout then does the actual assigning depending on yours scouts knowledge. A compromise of both systems really.
  21. Would really appreciate if someone has an answer to my question, have been playing FM for years and still not sure if there's an option for this. Is there a way to receive transfer activity or bids that other clubs are making for top players? Maybe these players have been transfer listed or unhappy so many clubs are making bids for them. Can I get inbox notifs or have one of my scout inform me? I feel that many times I lose the chance to join the bidding war for top players because I don't know and it's too late.
  22. Hello I have a Nokia 5, already played a whole season with Academica (PT). At the moment no major graphical issues, the only key issue i have is about scouting: * have 3 scouts * Assign them to different locations, for instance South America and Africa, looking for young/hot prospects but they always return empty. Does anyone have the same issue? * Also happening when i search for non young/hot prospects etc FMM19 version: latest 09/11/18 v10.0.4(ARM) Cheers
  23. Hello, One thing I think would be a nice and hopefully simple feature to implement would be a simple mechanism for the deletion of outdated scouting reports. Preferably, by "age"... that is to say, allowing you to delete reports over a certain number of days which you could type into a filter or have in a drop down menu containing increments of time (30 days, 60 days, 90 days) etc. Additionally, perhaps a rating to suggest the current accuracy of reports as they age... to accommodate how much the player has changed. If he has progressed or regressed significantly you could recolour the start rating (red grossly outdated, orange for slight change, green for current?). Though one might argue that this would seem unrealistic, if a players match ratings improve significantly in the same league, or he starts banging more goals in, or runs less miles, has reduced pass percentage.... one could argue that the re-colouration would just serve as a quick indicator of such events and as a loose reflection of statistics already made available within the game, and if anything, a catalyst for a more in depth review of such a player by (us/you) the manager. Cheers
  24. Hi When playing as Liverpool (Or any club who uses their recruitment structure for that matter) why don't targets or signings have to be agreed by the transfers committee or taken from the pool of players scouted and shortlisted as a committee?
  25. Hi all, I've started my first save with Swansea and proceeded to go and scout over 1,000 players before pressing 'Continue' to get a shortlist together as I'm short on funds. However I didn't realise I only had 1 scout at the time and he's now compiling all the reports, whilst the other 5 scouts I've now signed are all twiddling their thumbs. Is there any way I can share these out between them all to speed up the process so as to not get beat to signings? I know I could probably re-assign them all manually between my scouts but that would take a lot of time I don't really have. Thanks in advance for any help!
