Re: **Official Football Manager Thread**
This games scouting system confuses me.
I had Guilherme, Inler Gokhan and Hamsik scouted before I signed them, Hamsik was deemed to have potential to become a QUALITY player, Guilherme the same and Inler was a DECENT player.
I sign them, and all of a sudden Hamsik's potential drops to be a DECENT player while both Guilherme and Inler are recommended I should offload them in the near future.
Watse of fucking $$$ when I easily could've bought Mathieu Bodmer and Javier Saviola who were also transfer listed, but were only had potential to be DECENT players.
I hate the scouting and potential ratings on this game so much.
Guilherme was a good signing for me on FM 07, so I'd guess he'd be good on 08...
And, I know what you mean about the other thing. You have to see the coach/scout report from the coaches/scouts who have the best rating at "Judging Player Potential". The rest suck tbh. And, once those players get used to playing for your team, all coaches/scouts will rate them higher than at the beginning.
It's realistic, but confusing.
Edit: Alcoholic - Zarate looks ace, could I request a screenshot?
I've always known he's good, but just a look at his stats on your game.
