Have just taken over a club and when meeting my backroom staff for the first time one of the reccomendations was to employ a Squad Management Expert, what is that? the choices they have given me are two scouts (Stewart Houston & Martin Keown) or a youth coach (Mark Hulse)any knowledge of this out there....

Yeh basically a coach who has a good Man Management attribute. They offer you more advice in backroom meetings, seem to help a lot more with individual players like suggesting preferred move training, dropping players due to form etc...

Martin Keown is a pretty good coach for this as his defence coaching is quality too.

I got the same message back in fm11 almost every time i started a new game with a medium rep team in a league with hight standards or with a newly promoted team.
what worked best was signing a 1ST TEAM COACH (not a general coach, cause the problem seems to focus on the 1st team) with high Man Management and Motivating attributes. Also you need him to be oriented to your style of football (attacking, defensive etc.). It helps a lot if he speaks more than one language and if he is native to the league that you play in (British for the UK and so on).Also a club favorite with those attributes works like a treat (if there is one available) since he commands a great deal of respect.
