Scout comments

On this page, all occurring scout comments can be found, with their meaning.
The scout always says something about the current skill level and a potential. He may mention a speciality (if he does not comment on this, it does not necessarily mean that the player has no speciality) and the allround skill level.

You can let your scout search for a specific or any type of player. Should you search for a specific player type, (for example, search a midfielder) it is still not guaranteed that the scout proposes such a player. You just have a bigger chance of finding such a player. If you look for any type of player, you'll find a useful player more often. Are you looking for a specific player type, however, your chances of a top-player increases!
Remember: Especially if the scout has mentioned nothing but bad skills, you should test the player on those positions where these skills are not needed. Because behind not mentioned skills, a high potential could be hidden.

Current Skilllevel
The scout mentions a current skill level in a skill of the player. The mentioned skill belongs to the best three best potential skills. If he is fully trained in this skill, it belongs to his best three skills. It could also be the sub skill (the decimal point of the skill level) that is decisive.
1 This player has Skill level [Z] Skill [Y] at this point in his career.
2 Without any further training, this player will remain with Skill level [Z] Skill [Y].
3 Right now I would say his Skill [Y] capabilities are around the Skill level [Z] level.

Potential (max. achievable skill level)
The scout mentions the maximum achievable level of one skill. The mentioned skill is one of the player's three best potential skills.
1 Coach this player right and he will reach his potential of Skill level [Z] Skill [Y] before you know it!
2 If he develops well, I would say this chap can emerge with Skill level [Z] Skill [Y] before joining the senior squad.
3 Given the chance to improve his Skill [Y] skills, this guy might well reach Skill level [Z] in that department.

Overall Skills - Allrounder
To calculate the overall skill, first for each skill (without set pieces) the average of the current (moment of scouting) and max potential skill level in youth is calculated - both times sub-levels are ignored (round down to next integer). Then the average of the three highest averages is calculated and rounded up to the next integer. This integer then represents the overall skill.
Since current level at the moment of scouting is often unknown the old approach to divide the skill points (based on overall skill) to the best three potential skills is still helpful.
Skill level - distributable skill points: Poor - 9 to 12, Weak - 12 to 15, Inadequate - 15 to 18, Passable - 18 to 21, Solid - 21 to 24

1 I would say as an allrounder, he's Skill level [Z].
2 His overall abilities are Skill level [Z], in my opinion.
3 With his Skill level [Z] overall skills, this might be the player for us.

Specialty - Head
1 He is a natural in the air, and he will be able to use this edge both offensively and in defence.
2 The boy is taller than most of his age, and he knows how to use the advantage. Count on him to do a decent header.
3 This player has got stature on the pitch - he will develop into a nice head specialist.

Specialty - Powerful
1 This player is powerful for his age. With that large physique I'm sure he can get an advantage over his opponents when the going gets tough.
2 Still just a boy but with a powerful frame. We should ask his mother what she has been feeding him...
3 He has the physique of a grown man - it gives him a certain edge to be this powerful.

Specialty - Unpredictable
1 Well, what can I say? He keeps you guessing - it's an unpredictable player, if you know how to use him he might be of interest to you.
2 When you consider this player, don't forget he has a wild streak - he is unpredictable, one part madman, one part genius...
3 The player is unpredictable, and I am not sure we can do much about that - it's just his way.

Specialty - Technical
1 You can often see this guy doing beautiful moves in training - it is one of his defining traits.
2 This player is technical, you can see that from far away. Consider that when you build the team.
3 It is hard to evaluate this player without mentioning his technical skills, he seems to have a natural love for the ball.

Specialty - Quick
1 This player is certainly quick, which is never a bad thing for a footballer in this day and age.
2 This is a little speedball - always on the move, and faster than most. I hope he can learn to use that ability on the field...
3 This kind of player is useful, he is very quick, now all he needs to learn is to play football as well.

Specialty - Regainer
1 One thing I heard about this player is that he heals faster than most when he gets injured. Let's hope he never has to show us that.
2 This guy looks nothing special, but at least the doctors tell us he has a good capacity for rehabilitation when he has been injured.
3 There's good healing flesh on this player, I guess it's some kind of genetic thing.

Specialty - Support
1 This young man always goes out of his way to help his friends, even if means some extra work. It is an asset in life, but also on the pitch!
2 This boy has the makings of a great support player, someone who will not only do his own part, but help others shine as well.
3 I don’t want to sound like a whiny old git, but many youngsters of today are only in this game to get famous. This one is different. All he wants is for the team to excel!
