    Am I doing this wrong?

    I'm looking for Brazilian regens. I have assigned my best scout (who is Spanish, JA 20; JP 19) to look for them. I've set his assignment conditions as: - Age is at most 16 - Scouted PA is at least Good (3 stars) In 29 days he has found zero players. Weirdly, the "current cost" of these 29 days...

    Negative Potential Ability?

    During my search for a Buffon replacement, I notice that I have a decent looking young goalie (Leali) that could provide me with an answer. One thing though, he has a Potential Ability of -9. What does this mean? Is it some form of code to produce random attributes and/or PA? If so, within...
