Hi, When Im buying a player what should I take attention to?
Current Abilty (0-200) or Actual Rating (0-100%)
I use Genie Scout since Fm09 and never understood wich of those should I take care most?

Rating reflects how good a player is. Current ability is just an indication that doesn't necessarily mean reflect that. For example a player with CA 120 and another one with CA 160... it's possible the CA 120 to be a better player.
thats interesting, i always thought CA was what defined whether you had a good player or not??
CA defines the total number of stats a player can get. Rating is what tells you how good the player is relative to his position. An attacking midfielder don't need stats like marking and tackling. The rating takes this in to account, CA don't.
