It may have something to do with reputation of the club too, it is reasonable to expect, say someone from Russia, to want to join you purely because you can scout them. It may be counter productive, as it would cost more to send the scouts there, you may not be able to sign them, and you would be frustrated simply because you may see more classy players, that you can't sign!!
By making myself a Serb/Scotsman, the idea was to make it harder for myself, I have knowledge of those areas, but I am not seeing any intel come through. Also doesn't help that I didn't load the Scottish leagues up. One thing I did notice though, I am getting a strange mix; Serbian South Africans in my academy, that has to be related to the managers "nationality".
I'm not sure how much help the parent club is going to be, I certainly haven't seen any notes pop up as a result of the link, and I wouldn't have thought my rep would move markedly this early in a season. I've only had parent clubs in the country I am playing in, so this "foreign" parent is a new thought for me.
I'll stay with Dynamos for another two years, I want a crack at the Super8s, but if I was going to accept another job in SA, it would be for one of the clubs promoted into the NFD, although it may be exciting to see whether Dynamos could become a self sufficient club, I have no idea how long that may take though, given my facilities are average and basic and there is no way the Board want to discuss that either!

I understand your frustrations with the the scouting range.
The best you can hope for is that a good league performance would twist your board's arm.
One feature I would like to see in the game is that the managers nation should automatically be added to the scouting range of the club.
For example, if you are a Serbian manager in SA, you should be allowed to scout Serbia at least.
Not a perfect solution though as it wouldn't help if the manager was from an African nation.
When I managed in SA, I normally chose the parent club that offered the most money.
Mainly because I wouldn't except a mid level European club to loan me players.
Hypothetically speaking, if one of the other SA teams make you an offer, would you move?
Or is the next move going to be out of SA?
