I joined an Israeli team that has no scouts, and no scouting positions, and no ability to ask the board for more scouts.

Is there a mechanism to adding scouts that I don't know about?

What level of team are you managing?  Ar there any scouts on the staff allowance page?

Looks like you will have to wait till the finances improve and you can then approach the board for more wages for staff

But I can ask for more money for coaches, for physios, etc. I don't seem to be able to ask for more scouts. Any scouts.

What happens if you offer a contract to an unemployed scout?  Does the  board block it?

yes

edit - actually, not sure I tried that. I'll try and get back to you.

edit2 - yes, they block it. not sure how to do any recruitment (especially when one of my charges is to sign players I can sell for a profit) without a scout.

You might be able to get around it by hiring a Coach/Physio/DoF or other staff member with good scouting attributes - then sending them to look at players.

It appears that your board think you don;t need a cscout, won;t pay for a scout and are unlikely to agree to hiring one. All you can do is keep trying to ask until they allow it.

Do you really need a Director of Football? Maybe you should fire him and look for a scout and data analist.

I don't have an option of signing a scout.

Maybe if you fire the guy your board will raise conserns on your recruitment team

The Board will not allways give the Option to hire Scouts - that may change over the Season or from one Season to another.

As said above - you can circumvent that i.e. by hiring other Stuff and give them Scout as second Job - you only need to find People who agree to that Job offer and many will have quite good Scouting skills.

It doesn't seem at all right that a board can be happy with a DoF and a Data Analyst and not want at least 1 scout- I would report it as a bug.

I would fire him for sure!! Maybe it helps and you also don't need him

I do like the idea of giving my DOF a secondary job as scout. I am concerned that if I just fire the DOF it will take months if not longer to resolve, and I still have to sign half a roster before then.

edit - except that literally no-one will accept such a double role. It's a non-starter for everyone.

edit2 - and my board won't let me fire my DOF as it would cost too much.

A work around may be to select a group of players in the scouting screen, right click on them and go Scouting>>Assign Scout and choose the DoF.
