ibox : have you guys thinked about the whole concept of the game? lol
It's meant to make US a coach (yeah, its also to make us have some fun, but moving along), why don't you try to search "manually" for your players, its hard, but for what i've noticed the scouts are much better this time.
I've already found around 15 or 20 "future-star" players just by letting the scouts do their job (in 4 seasons)(not counting for the "good" players, just the "star" ones).
I know that when you are at very small clubs its difficult to have good staff, but its not impossible.
For example, i spent 3 seasons training "West Brom Albion" and i found around 10 future-stars, meanwhile in just 1 season in Liverpool i have found as many.
Don't let the scouts and editors take control of what you do in your club.
West Brom are a Championship team with a good stadium, and money. Try Vauxhall Motors in league two. Literally no money, and a 200 capacity stadium, and no players will come to the club. Genie scout is a big factor in finding someone good and enjoying the game.
I know you didnt mean anything by it mate, but I don't see the point in going onto a forum about genie scout and telling people to live without it - if they're checking these threads they've obviously already made there decision.
I'm hoping it'll be out relatively soon!
