The first blog for Football Manager 2012 have been posted by the lovely Miles Jacobson and reveals the planned release date for the game along with some details on the scouting system.
Sports Interactive are aiming for a October 21st release, which is well inside their original ‘before Christmas’ statement when the game was announced. The scouting changes also sound pretty impressive, you can now get a scout report of any club in the world, this will provide you with a list of the three best players at the club. You can also get further details on positional strength and compare team stats. In addition, the better scouts that you sign will come along with pre-prepared scouting reports and tell you that a scouting trip to Greenland is pointless. You can read the whole thing here.
