The new guys seem intent on only scouting guys from the UK
Honestly, good. The Championship and League One are exactly where we should be looking. Those leagues are cutthroat with so much at stake and managers on short leashes, meaning that they often don't have time to deal with a 20-year-old's learning curve when there's a 29-year-old Championship lifer at the same position who knows his way around a relegation battle. Players in those leagues tend to be on short contracts which mean they're easier to scoop up cheaply on transfers and as free agents.
It's also a petri dish for the exact types of players who fit the system. You get a ton of athletic guys who maybe lack the quality needed to reach the next level. Perfect for pressing at the MLS level.
Now, like anywhere else you get what you pay for. So if the overlords are going to cheap out then it doesn't matter whether we're scouting Bayern Munich or a high school team in Kuwait. But if they're willing to spend a bit then there's an embarrassment of talent to be had in the lower tiers of England.
