Filter out unrealistic targets

    On FM11 I noticed that occasionally your assistant would filter out a player who was willing to discuss terms when you ticked "ask assistant to filter out unrealistic target" box, there was usually only 1 or 2 but I couldn't help go through all the filtered out players just to see if one actually was interested which was pretty time consuming.

    On the FM12 demo I got the impression that my assistant was filtering out more players as "unrealistic" than usual but I didn't check to make sure, did anyone else?

    No, personally I felt he was filtering out less.

    Who are you managing?

    Evo i would have to agree. I am currently managing Liverpool (full game) and have noticed that my assistant places many players in the unrealistic category. The problem with this is that some of these players are nowhere near unrealistic and i have actually signed quiet a few of the players that were deemed unrealistic. Its rather strange indeed.

    Yes I expect its the assistant that's that that's why he filters wrong! Never trust assistants! of course it could just be a bug though....

    I noticed that the filter can be wrong too.

    At the beginning of my season, I needed some players on loan with my team of Marseille. I looked for strikers available for loan, and I got Amauri who was initially considered as unrealistic :))

    I have noticed that as well. I never really trust the assistant manager because even in FM11 I signed quite a few players that were supposed to be unrealistic. Maybe he takes into account your transfer and salary budget.
