Improved Data Analytics Team

Recommended Posts

I originally posted this in the Good Player & Team Guide forum to ask if this was already possible, got no responses from anyone so now posting here as a feature request.

From my understanding, the way that some modern football clubs make decisions on transfers is a combination of performance analytics and in-person scouting for a number of matches.

I would like to start a save where I implement an analytically driven approach, where all my first-team transfers are driven by data analysts who identify players performing well in certain areas in various competitions.

But not just based on top scorers or top assisters, also to include more of the underlying statistics that are important on a per-role basis for my tactical setup.

I think it should be possible to assign a data analyst to recommend player(s) in this way. For example, say I want to sign a Central Defender. I would like to know who are the players across certain leagues that rank well for interceptions per 90, successful tackles per 90, aerial challenges won per 90 and also have a pass completion rate of x%. And I would like to be able to give the data analytics team (or an individual data analyst) an assignment to produce a report for me based on these requirements.

From the list of players my analytics department recommends, I could then assign my scouting team to go and watch them in person to get an additional opinion on the players before making a final decision on who to buy.

It feels like this should be possible and I'm missing a big part of the game... or rather, since this part of the game is missing, it could be a big way of improving the usefulness of the analytics team.

Update: so after exploring the Scouting area for a while, I found that you can filter players by the relevant statistics mentioned above, but I would maintain that the ability to set assignments based on these would be preferable and should fall under the Data Analysis team rather than be a function of the Scouting filters.
