As per the post, just how do you find these guys?

Strandberg has been immense for me, nearly an 8 average and scores goals and is very very cheap!
Yet when I scout him, he comes up as decent for Championship at best and even after a few games he is now 2.5 stars and decent for premiership (I am Southampton)

So even with better scouts I doubt I would pick him out amongst the phil jones and hummels

SO how do you do it? oh and Thanks to those that do!

I think people judge player on the stats rather than the scout reports, I myself am very inclined to only sign a player who is good star wise, especially in previous games.

It's not about scout reports. Very unreliable. Only thing I look for in scout reports is if it says they are consistent, or injury prone. It's all about their attributes for the role you'll be playing them in.

I signed a player who my scouts said was 2 and a half stars PA ... I signed him because i thought he would do a job for me and i liked his stats. When i signed him all of a sudden he was a 5 starred PA player ... A few times it has happened. Not all about your scouts even if they have 20 judging both PA and CA

I just got a scout report on Sergi Samper (season 5). I know he's highly rated irl and my scout gave him a 5* potential. Signed him (thankfully only 350k), joins and coaches say he has 2.5* potential at the most. Very strange.
