Ed, any idea what a scout looks for in a player? Is there a pre-determined list that a player has to comply to? Sometimes I've heard of two or three scouts from the same club scouting the same player. Would they be looking at different things or would it be a mix of views amounting to a consensus?

{Ed001's Note - it really does depend. Usually you have scouts who are just looking at specific players and putting together an overall report on their strengths and weaknesses. That is just a general first look at players. Then you will have other scouts who will be looking to see if a player has certain attributes that the recruitment team or manager has specified they want in a player. Usually those scouts are looking at players that a data analysis team has suggested could be of use and they are then checking to see if they have certain qualities that can't be judged through data. The reason why 2 or 3 different scouts will go and look is because different people see different things. So you need more than one viewpoint to really get a full picture.}
