I'm looking forward to seeing if there are any new Australian media comparisons this edition! I know there was discussion in the data issues thread about it for FM12 since the only one available then was "the next Jason Culina". IRL, whenever there's a promising striker or left-winger in Australia the media inevitably draws comparisons to Mark Viduka or Harry Kewell :D

It all depends on how many people here scout those Australian regens. I know that I only do so when I have countries closer to my club covered.

Here is one more:

The system for adding currently players is crazy, but it is all part of the fun.

I added the above to the list plus a few more of mine:

I have added it to the list. I may start my own game at the bottom soon, so I might not find as many for a while.

A very nice find. A faceinthegame regen dubbed as a played we have never had before. I would suggest using the direct link option to link the picture in the future.

I have added it to the list.

Nice finds. I have added them all.

I guess we can do more than four images in a post now.

I finally found one after moving up the leagues in my journeyman save and snatching this guy up on loan:

I have to say I really enjoyed the 2012 version of this thread :thup:

The next Andoni Zubizaretta

The most obscure "Next" I have EVER seen - the next Michael Bostwick. I had to check - Bostwick is a journeyman who has never played above the Championship, spending six seasons at Peterborough in my game. I have no idea what the connection with my regen is, as Bates has only been in the game for nine months and never crossed paths with the aforementioned journeyman. Anyway:

I have the Australian league loaded, have chosen Australian nationality (and thus have full scouting knowledge) and have just gone through every menber of the U21, U20 and U19 squads. Not a single next ANYONE!

Having said that, as I said in the "Shocks" thread, Australia failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in my game, so it doesn't look like we've got anything at all!!!

I have made an important discovery. Ever since I have started this, people have wondered if the list of players that this is drawn from can expand to include regens. I can finally confirm that in FM13 at least, this is the case. My scout found a regen labelled the next Sascha Schmitt and I clicked on the name and found out that he was a regen. Here are the two players in question:

I don't think that such players should be in the regular list, but if you find one post it here too and I'll keep a separate list. Please include a screenshot of both regens so that we can see them.

Most experienced FM players are aware of the system in which FM uses to compare youngsters to other players. The database has a list of 'famous players' under every nation. They have to match the description (explosive striker, commanding centre back etc), height (small, medium, tall), side (Left, right, center, not set) and a set of two new options this year, if the famous players are permanent in the list or not. Another new option this year is a rating option, rating from 1-20. In theory it means the youngsters have to be very good to match a famous player with a 20 rating.

However, the problem is that these lists are not as good as they could be. SI hasn't done a good job at finishing these lists. Some nations have too few famous players added and some nations have no famous players added. The smart rating option isn't being used nearly enough. Its not being used for English players (everyone with a rating of 1) which means it hasn't got enough weight and you can have your crap youngster being touted the next Bobby Moore. However as you can see in the picture below Germany has done a good job with these lists, adding rating to the famous players. So your next Beckenbauers will only be world class youngsters. Earlier in this thread there was a player being touted the next Platini. Platini has a rating of 20 (as he should be) and the youngster is actually very promising. For example in Brazil Gilberto Silva has a low rating of 3, while Zico and Ronaldo has a high rating of 20.

However, when games progresses you'll see youngster being touted to younger players or regens. This feature seems to be very poor as you can see the next Michael Bostwick, the next Scott Louch or the next Peter Crouch who's way too short to being compared to Crouch. It's just stupid and makes this nice idea just not being worthwile. It's open for discussion in my opinion if regens should be touted as next regens.

In my opinion this feature needs serious overhauling. Height, description just isnt enough to compare players. In real life, the next Beckhams would have to be fantastic dead ball specialists, the next Crouches would have to be very tall with technique, the next Shearers would have to be fantastic headers etc. In the editor Beckham is listed as a right sided tireless midfielder of medium height. Is that enough to match youngster with Beckham?? Of course not and not even close. There needs to be more options and with more thought into it.

Great post Johannes. I agree with what you have posted. This feature has the potential to be really fun for players, but it has sometimes been neglected.

I am not sure that I agree with using new players or regens either, but it looks like those are heavily used as I have found some more:
