English Regen Analysis

539 posts in this topic

Some of you may remember the holiday game I did in England last year that reached 2207. I am trying to do the same thing this year now that the last patch and Genie Scout are out, but I will be posting up year-by-year results so you can follow my work on nationalities and regen breakdown. In this first post I will be laying out a sample of future reports by showing what happened with the regen intake created at the start of the game. This game has all English leagues running with a large database on the latest patch and data update.

Blackburn:

I will be following Blackburn's regens as they come through and either stick with them or move to another team. I am doing this because I want to understand how one of the teams in the top divisions manages their youth intake, whether or not they can judge their own talent, and what level PAs a player can reasonably expect to generate from their own youth team. Of course Blackburn did not get any regens at the start of the game, so their section of this report is not as detailed as it will be in the future.

Blackburn are predicted to finish in 8th place this season. The start with a rep of 6700 and 14,226,950 in the bank, with 5,000,000 allocated towards transfers and 472,760 to spend on wages each week. Their average attendance is listed at 23944 while their training and youth facilities stand at 17 and 14 respectively.

Nationalities:

I will determine the nationalities of regens coming through English teams in every season. Please know that this is actually quite difficult to do perfectly, but I will try my best to get good numbers and not miss any regens. I will post the nationalities that were present in the intake at the start of the game. Keep in mind that this may not be representative of a regular intake because the top clubs have not gotten any regens. Also realize that the relatively high number of Welsh regens will always be present because of the Welsh-based teams in English leagues like Cardiff.

High PA Regens

I will be tracking 170+ PA regens that come through English clubs. I will note their club, position and starting CA and PA and then future CA improvements. Here is one from the first intake

Jim Greenwood England MC Blackpool PA: 178 CA: 112

General Info

I will be tracking some of the other little things of interest that occur in my game in the future. These will include winners of major trophies, large transfers, and some other little regen notes. This year's report is obviously not as complete as it will be in future years.

I saw your report last year and it made for really interesting reading.

I think there will be a much wider range of 2nd nationalities if what i've noticed is anything to go by with more players having 2nd nationalities generally.

Look foward to reading your results

I'll certainly tell you if they do anything interesting... You probably do not want to hear what happened to them in last year's edition though.

What I've noticed so far seems to be a wider range, but less in total. There also seem to be a lot less British regens that are not just English single nationality.

Update forthcoming tomorrow (Wednesday night). Hopefully having a little more to look at will draw a little more attention to the thread.

2009

Blackburn:

Not so good news for my Rovers as Big Sam did not do any better than Paul Ince. He made way for Roland Nilsson, but even he could not save the day as Rovers finish 19th and go down with Newcastle and Stoke. Their reputation falls to 5608 from 6700, but they are predicted to finish 3rd in the Championship. They still have 14,688,980 in the bank, with 4,448,330 for a new season of transfers and 451,900 for wages. The financial situation looks fine even before they unload some of their players. Average attendance has fallen to 17246 from 23944.

Here is the first youth intake. Not a whole lot of good, which may be due to the worse than expected season.

High PA Regens:

Jim Greenwood from the first intake moved from Blackpool to Fulham. Along with the move he gained 26 in CA from 112 to 138 to move closer to his PA of 178.

Junior Williams     AMC     Doncaster    186  81

General Info

Manchester United win the title with Liverpool taking the Chapmpions League. Udinese upset Juventus in the UEFA Cup. Liverpool also take the League Cup with Everton taking the FA Cup. The big transfer was Gareth Barry's 26.5M move to Manchester City.

Interesting that the regens with high PAs seem to be coming mainly from Football League clubs rather than Premiership sides.

What happened to them?

I followed it last year and didn't they get relegated to the BSP and then, promoted all the way back into the Championship.

2010

Blackburn:

Fortunately Blackburn's stay in the Championship was brief as they finished second and got the automatic promotion. Although they had the chance to play their local rivals Burnley and Preston a couple of times, those matches will not be resuming as Burnley struggle and may drop down to League One shortly. Preston, meanwhile, are on their third manager as John Gregory replaces Joe Royle, who did not do enough to please the board. With the promotion, their reputation jumps up to 6334 from the 5608 it had dropped down to before. They come up with 11439150 in the bank, but the expected income allows them to have a transfer budget of 18166600 and spend 532210 on wages. Their average attendance goes up by 1000 to 18286 while they were also able to upgrade their facilities from 17 and 14 to a perfect 20 for training and 19 for youth. We will see if that has an impact on the quality of regens later.

First, their 2009 crop with their PA, 2009 CA, and 2010 CA:

Martin Kennedy England DL  129 53 58
Stuart Barton  England GK  124 53 55
Lewis Williams England GK  119 47 51
Darren Leach   England ST  109 46 49
Lars Krogh     Eng/Den DC  100 63 66
Tony Easton    England GK   91 35 45
Stefan Hudson  England GK   89 41 41
Steven Jackson England DWBL 78 30 37
Rob Attwell    England DC   73 41 43

Overall, nothing great in terms of development as the worst players had the biggest jump in CA. Here are the new guys as we have at least one potential talent:

Kevin Askey         England MC   172 71
Phillip Cook        England ST   139 58
Michael Worthington England DMRC 131 50
Grant Currie        England DC    97 85
Nick Bond           England ST    97 45
Steve Kennedy       England MC    73 55

0.25%  2   England           Australia
0.12%  1   England           Croatia

0.12%  1   Scotland	
1.12%  9   Wales	
2.49% 20   Wales             England

A bit disappointing really, as numbers of solely English regens seem to have increased this year by around 15%. Most of the non-English or Welsh first nationality players can be attributed to the club's scouting knowledge. Arsenal are responsible for all the French regens so far and Chelsea has a staff member from Equitorial Guinea.

High PA Regens

Jim Greenwood continues for a second season at Fulham, improving from 138 in CA to 160, moving him closer to his PA of 178.

General Info

Manchester United take home yet another title, although Liverpool finish behind them only on goal difference with Arsenal a point off the pace. Real Madrid win the Champions League while Sevilla take the UEFA Cup. United also lift the League Cup with Chelsea winning the FA Cup. Mario Gomez's 28M move from Stuttgart to Liverpool made headlines while Man City show that they do not just buy as they sell Mikel Arteta to Barcelona for 29M to earn an 8M profit on his purchase from Everton a year earlier. The World Cup this summer will be of great interest to all

Askey could be a top player for Rovers, as long as they can manage to keep him.

West Brom have done well for themselves with one of the top prospects each season.

High PA Regens

Jim Greenwood has moved from 160 to 166 in CA, edging him closer to his PA of 178. He has also made a couple of starts for England, making him a real success for that initial crop of regens.

I might remove those nationalities from the next report since it seems a waste of space when all of them are English.

General Info:

Italy won the World Cup by defeating France. Manchester United won their third consecutive title within this game. Juventus won the Champions League with Inter taking home the UEFA Cup as consolation. Manchester City lift the League Cup with Fulham winning the FA Cup. In former player watch, Dean Windass got tired of not playing at Hull or Chester and took the managerial reins at Hampton & Richmond. The big money transfer of the year was Manchester City's 35M purchase of Raul Garcia from Liverpool.

The good news is that I have another update. The bad news is that Genie Scout is not working for me (I have gone all the way to 2015). We will see if I can find a way to get around it. Let that not get in the way of the update for 2012.

Blackburn

Roland Nilsson did some good things in his tenure, which Fulham took notice of. He moved on to Craven Cottage. Rovers decided to replace him with Darren Ferguson. I suspect thtat this decision would not be taken all that well in real life. He kept the team hanging around the level at which he inherited as we finished 12th. The reputation increased from 6679 from 6449. The financial situation is about the same as they have 18667110 in the bank with 11832800 for transfers this season and 630250 for wages. Attendance stays roughly the same with an average of 18658. There will be some more interesting regen news as a few of them are being released and moving on.

General Info

Arsenal win the title to wrestle it from Manchester United's domination. Juventus repeats as Champions League winners while Barcelona grab the UEFA Cup. Arsenal also add a domestic trophy to their cabinet in the form of the League Cup while Bolton take the FA Cup. People will be talking about Liverpool's second major purchase from Atletico Madrid in the form of Sergio Aguero who cost 40m. If you are wondering where Liverpool are getting the money, their latest takeover involved a Malaysian consortium.

A third great regen for WBA, they could really be building a foundation for the future here. It's interesting that none of these regens have made moves to any of the biggest clubs yet, with Wigan probably being the biggest club to sign any of them. A sign of the teams' scouts missing the talent, or are they looking abroad instead?

In the 2009 batch, Tom Dodds' CA is listed as increasing by over 60 points this year. Typo, or huge improvement?

And there were quite a few Nigerians coming in this year, were they all from different clubs or maybe a few from one with a Nigerian staff member?

And one last thing, which teams have been winning the youth leagues so far?

Good thread, I'll be keeping an eye on this. If your Genie Scout isn't working try using FMRTE, it does pretty much the same job for experiments like this :thup:

As a West Brom fan, I'm delighted we're starting to churn out some youths :D.

KUTGW :thup:

Tom Dodds should be at 117 and not 177 CA. The number of Nigerians was unusual for this year, and seems to be from different clubs. This number would not have been unusual last year, which shows how things have changed in this version. As for big teams not signing the players, it seems that a lack of CA is the big obstacle for now. This leads me to believe that the biggest clubs do not scout PA as much as some people complain about. It seems like teams are not even good at determining which of their own players have talent and a lot of these 170+ PA players have not improved very much at all so far.

Good thread, I'll be keeping an eye on this. If your Genie Scout isn't working try using FMRTE, it does pretty much the same job for experiments like this :thup:

I will try to use FMRTE soon if there is no Genie fix in sight, but I am not sure if the search features will be powerful enough for me to use. Also I would strongly prefer being able to run it without the game on.

As a West Brom fan, I'm delighted we're starting to churn out some youths :D.

The talent is certainly coming through, but the players might not be improving enough to reach their full potential.

2013:

Blackburn

Blackburn have to deal with another managerial change as Darren Ferguson decided to leave for Everton and Stale Solbakken from Kobenhavn was the choice of the board. The team finished in 15th with their reputation rising from 6679 to 6672. The financial situation improved as the balance went up to 24349460 and there will be 12321830 for transfers and 630250 for wages. Attendance does not fluctuate much at 18574. There is starting to be a bit of movement for some of these regens.

None of the regens have made any spectacular gains in ca, is this because they are not playing regularly, even the ones at a lower level like gregory and griffiths from 2011

I would suspect that those at top teams are not playing regularly enough and the ones at lesser teams are not playing at a high enough standard. It seems that the players who moved to St. Pat's or Scotland have shone the most improvement.

This forthcoming update is the latest that I have. I am still trying to get a scouting tool that will suit my needs. In the meantime, I will try to do some screenshots. Go ahead and drop in any requests that you have.

2014

Blackburn:

Rovers may have found a good manager as they finished in 6th to qualify for the Europa League (or UEFA Cup, which is kind of what I have been typing in all of my other updates). Their reputation takes a nice jump to 7216 from 6772. The bank balance is even healthier this season as it now stands at 30914690. They will have 15794690 for transfers with 630250 for wages. Attendance will finally pick up as the average increases by over 2000 to 20722.

General Info

Arsenal complete a stunning domestic treble with solid win in the league and strong cup performances. As a result, they have the money to make purchases like the 28.5M buy of Freddy Adu from Juventus. Manchester United will not be too unhappy about missing out on the title as they do capture the Champions League crown. Palermo win the UEFA Cup. From this regen intake, the high CA was 113 with 9 over 90. On the low end there were regens with a CA of 1 and a PA of 4.

I'm loving this thread by the way, really good work here :thup:

Is it just me or is it really worrying that out the 8 high PA regens from the first year, none of them has reached a CA of 150 or more in 5 years?

Not very realistic if you ask me... I wonder if it's a flaw with FM09 itself or if it's just the AI managers that are abusing the players (bad training, not enough first team/reserve etc)?

Because if you look at some of the regens that people have posted in several threads here, some appears to have gotten a CA of at least 180-190 in 3-4 years of development... So perhaps the AI is just really horribly bad at developing players??

This thread definently raises a lot of interesting questions about regens in FM09

Like roversawh7 said it could be that they are at big clubs and just not getting enough playing time, the AI never seems to give youth players any games, you often see 20yo's never having played a game, if they have its often on loan.

Good news!

I have figured out how to fix Genie Scout. Retire your holiday manager and create a new one if the game has trouble loading the people. Obviously this fix will not work all so well if you are just using Genie to give you a little help in the game. I will plan on updating on Friday, Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Just read through this, quite interesting seeing how the regens develop.

2015:

Blackburn:

Solbakken's quick success with Rovers meant that bigger clubs came calling. He moved on to Chelsea and was promptly replaced by Gordon Strachan. He guided them to 11th. The team's reputation stayed pretty static at 7271, while the team stayed strong in the financial sector with 31874460 in the bank and 20794290 for transfers and 691070 left for wages. Average attendance rose to 21781. In other Rovers-related news, both Burnley and Preston will be playing in League One next year.

General Info

Uruguay dials the World Cup back to its humble origins by reaching the finals, but Brazil beats them as the hosts to lift the trophy. In past player managerial news, Sol Campbell has already made it to his third management post, while Maniche has started his trek at Cambridge City and Raul has been named manager of Hull. Gonzalo Higuain's 25.5 M move to Manchester City from AC Milan created buzz, but not as much as Liverpool's title drought ending this season. Manchester United will not be taking it too hard as they have retained the Champions League crown and CSKA Moscow take the UEFA Cup away from the traditional top leagues. Crystal Palace created some rare variety on the domestic front with their League Cup victory but Manchester United completed a cup double with the FA Cup.

More regen stuff:

High CA: 112

CA >90: 6

Low CA: 1

Low PA: 3

Another couple of quality youths for West Brom, with the others starting to develop quickly. Could we become a powerhouse!?

The regens from Blackburn still haven't really reached any sort of CA that would see them break into the first team. Just one of the regens at Blackburn has exceeded 100 CA so far (Steve Elder) and he is on 119 CA which is still not really good enough for Blackburn.

The most promising talent at Blackburn is Sean Thompson (182 PA) but he isn't developing very quickly. He has only improved by 14 CA in 3 years. That would suggest that in 15 years (at the same level of progression) he would only reach 148 CA, and assuming he was 16 when he first came through the system, then he would be 31 and most likely on the decline.

kutgw!

2016:

Blackburn:

Gordon Strachan's first full season at the club leads to an uneventful 10th place finish. The club reputation rises from 7271 to 7409 after the higher finishes of the past few years. 11668780 of 30287800 will be available for transfers for the next year while 800410 is set aside for wages. Average attendance is unchanged at 21781. These updates are starting to get quite long. I may have to split parts up to better show you what is going on.

General Info:

Interesting news for all you Czechs out there as Pavel Nedved takes control of Wigan and Tomas Ujfalusi grabs the reins at Fulham. Kevin Phillips, on the other hand, managed to get himself hired and fired by Walsall all in the same season. The top transfer is a regen for the first time as Liverpool spend 24.5M to pry Frenchman Bilal Granier from Aston Villa. Manchester United return to their title winning ways while Juventus and Lazio make an Italian sweep of the European trophies. Arsenal win the League Cup while Chelsea win the FA Cup. The highest regen CA was 113 with a total of 11 above 90 CA. On the low end of the scale were CA 1 and PA 8.

Blackburn still don't have any impressive regens really, and the new batch has followed that trend.

Humood Ali from the 2013 batch looks like he will be a great player. I'm assuming he is 19/20 now, and with a CA of 157 will be really good.

Kutgw!

The only time I have seen Blackburn consistently turn out decent regens were in the 08 version when they briefly became the most dominant team in the land. This is even with perfect facilities.

Humood Ali will be a good one. This bodes well for England fans everywhere because he has chosen to represent them. Saudis will rue the fact that they could have had their best ever player.

2017:

Blackburn:

Gordon Strachan was clearly not happy with midtable mediocrity and gave Rovers fans quite a scare with a 17th place finish. While the fans are calling for his head, all signs point to him keeping it for another year. As a result of the downturn in results, reputation takes a sharp dive by over 250 points to 7154. The money situation is not much better with 14032390 in the bank, but 18221390 to spend for transfers and 800410. Average attendance tails off slightly to 21599. In positive news, the youth facilities have joined the training facilities at a perfect 20.

General Info:

Italy tops Holland in Euro 2016, but that's not the only news out of that country as Manchester City make a large purchase by spending 21.5M to bring Yoann Gourcouff from AC Milan. Arsenal win the title while Valencia and Barcelona win the two continental competitions to ensure a second year of the same country taking both. Manchester United lift the League Cup while Liverpool grab the FA Cup. The high CA among regens this year is 117 with 7 in total above 90. Unfortunately for some regens, they have been created with the lowly CAs and PAs of 1 and 2.

Blackburn and West Brom should be ashamed of themselves for the poor job they've done with Askey and Booth from 2010.

Interesting experiment roversawh7. It looks like AI player development is roughly linear as the player ages and highly dependent on playing time; I'd bet that the players who are growing the most quickly in CA (~10/year) are getting decent playing time since most of them are at Championship sides.

They may also have higher levels of determination, professionalism, and ambition compared to the rest of the pack. Might be something worth checking on now and again for a better understanding of why certain players are growing while others essentially stagnate.

Really interesting this, great work!

I was wondering if you could check if there was a correlation between the number of players signed in the season prior to the youth intake, and the quality of the regens? I've heard that this has a big effect on the quality of newgens that you produce, i.e. that the more players you sign, the poorer the quality of newgens.

Cheers!

From what I have seen, professionalism does seem to play a role whereas the other two are not necessarily as high in the fast developers. That said, I would suspect that external factors like training quality, availability of tutoring, and correct evaluation by their team all seem to play a very important role.

This would be kind of difficult to keep track of at a satisfactory level because of the observations I would need to do to set a sufficient sample size. I have often wondered how the game determines the amount of regens that you will receive, as it can vary from 4 to 10 or more from year to year. It may have to do with squad size. I would suspect that the quality of your side does not have that large of an effect on regen quality or the top teams would only get worthless regens.

2018

Blackburn:

Rovers finished in 14th this year under Strachan, which was safe but hardly interesting. Reputation barely changes at 7137. The financial situation improves a bit with 20111710 in the bank and 20732170 for transfers and 800410 in wages. Average attendance rises a bit at 22384.

General Info:

More manager news as Sol Campbell and Dean Windass find more teams willing to take them on in the forms of Southend and Torquay. Christian Poulsen also comes to England to manage, starting at Scunthorpe. Newcastle also make major management news with the return of one of their saviors... Yes, Newcastle have hired Kevin Keegan again. I think we all could get pretty good odds on Keegan joining Newcastle in 2018! Transfer news was dominated by Carlos Vela's 23.5M move from Arsenal to Real Madrid, where he contributed to a Champions League victory, while AC Milan took home the UEFA Cup. Manchester United win another title while the other side of Manchester is hardly wallowing in self-pity as City grab both domestic cups. In this crop of regens, the high CA was 104 with 9 players starting above the 90 mark. 1 and 3 represented the absolute low end of the ability scale.
