How To Evaluate Your Scouts

Last Updated:

As like previous versions of Football Manager, you, as the newest Manager of your Football Club, must establish a trust between yourself and the scouts on your team in Football Manager 2018. These are the individuals that will be getting a first-hand view of the Players you are looking to add to your club, so you will need to have faith in these people in order to get the Best talent you can get your hands on. This might seem little a difficult thing to do, especially when most players would like to control every single aspect of their ball club, but having trust in your scouting team to do their job is a must if you would like to have a long and successful career.

Luckily, one of the newest features added to the Football Manager Series in this specific version is the Recommendation Score, allowing your scouts to make it easier for you to get an even better assessment of how potential Players would fit with your current team and Tactics. Now more than ever before, you will be able to learn practically every single thing about a prospect you are looking to possibly obtain, helping you to further evaluating on whether you think they have the potential to fit in your team and perhaps become a star one day. You can even invest more Money in your scouting team, allowing them to find out even more about possible Free Agents and Transfers.

However, not all scouts are good at their job, and you might find yourself needing to Sign a better one at a given time or two over the course of your managerial career. In order to spot a scouting team that needs to be replaced, you will need to keep a sharp eye out on how they judge certain Players and how other scouts are critiquing these same players. If several different scouts are giving higher Recommendation Scores for certain players than your present scouting team, this is a dead giveaway that you should think about upgrading the scouts on your team.
