How good are your scouts?

I don't think its the same as the bloom because the scout reports have a "bloom" bit as well as a "development status" bit.

Judging from bwtcf's reply they can still improve a bit, which is good to know!

He said in the national team thread that his kid was playing. Thy don't normally ban you for just that. But I did see a 60million bid on a 1.5 star potential 18 year old of his - I suspect that's what made them suspect something and ban him. Hopefully he can sort it out!!

"actually it wasn't a dodgy transfer, just an ill informed one. My kid happened to join this before I did, saw that I'd set up a team a put all his money on one of my young up and commers, unfortunatey TM didn't agree with the rationale and banned us both - he's very dissappointed."

Thats the description given on his team page by what could be a new team created by theprof

My reading of it is that the Development status tells you where they are at within their bloom period.  i.e Development Status of say 'middle' with a bloom period of 'starting to bloom' probably means that they are in the middle of their 1st year of blooming.  Or a DS of 'mostly done' in a late bloom period means the player was towards the end of their 3rd year of bloom. 

Don't know if this is right, just the way I've read it.

Players definately keep on improving after their bloom period is done.  I think from memory the stars represent the maximum level the player will get to which they usually hit around the 28 years old mark.

 Go to your Club page and it should give you the option to Pick your Sponsors.

I randomly got about $40,000,000 added to my coffers but it doesn't show up as coming from anywhere on the finances page, it just popped up out of nowhere. Could it be my sponsor money for the cup? I thought that got paid out at the end of the season...

 You have been paid out for your coaches...They have changed training to not require coaches.

General advice question: I have 50,000,000 in the coffers, what should be my plan? Upgrade facilities, pick up a player for about 30million to try and score all my goals, or try and pick up about 5 different players?

I generally upgrade what money making facilities that I can (sausage stand restaurant etc),upgrade my stadium by 500 at a time if its selling out,do the math on whether its worth upgrading parking/toilets. It's personal choice if you want to upgrade youth and training,I personally go slow on it to begin with. 

I then look for a scout (and formerly coach) to hire that is an improvement on a current one,or just a new one if I feel the need to add 1 to my staff. 

Then once facilities and scouts are done, I use what's left over to upgrade players in my team. Whether its a better player in a position,or a similarly skilled local player to replace a foreign one,or even a similarly skilled (or better) younger player to replace one that is over 33-34

Different people have different strategies though. That's just part of mine.

I'm not 100% sure i understand why they've removed coaches - it seems an odd change, I'm thanksful for the extra cash and have $20mill left to spend - might hold on to it for a few weeks for the dust to settle and then look at the transfer market. Or hold on to the end of the season and build my stadium up.

Yeah,I don't like it either. The old one wasn't complicated as they say. If anything,it's more complicated now.

I have a question: what happened to Blair? Does anyone know? He is still active on TM,but just disappeared from the forum halfway through the second (I think?) fever league. Leaving me to pick up the tables etc and make a shambles of it! 

Not that I mind at all, it's just odd!

 Ditto re why get rid of coaches. I thought it was simple and worked well... oh well.

I have a question about my low number of pro days remaining, I don't really use them so I guess they just go down 1 each day, but when they're gone, what features do I lose? Any at all?

Yes, one per day.

You lose your logo.

You can't have a reserves squad without pro.

Before the training overhaul you couldn't change between the complex and simple training overview views (which was shit, because I always had to change back and forth between them to see what I wanted to see).

There's some other stuff too, but I've just had pro for so long now I forget... I want a reserves squad, so that alone means I am committed.
