First post to the forum.

Thanks Dave and team for making the game, and also really impressed by your dialogue with gamers. Thanks also to Derek for the real name DB - without this I would not have bought the game. I had RUTM15 which I dabbled with a little, but quickly got frustrated when I couldn't get the real name DB to work and had clearly started out with some errors re training and such.

Anyway, I haven't started playing a career yet, but thought I'd ask here - what are the essentials for a new game? What coaching set up and investments should I make in the first few days, and how exactly does the scouting part work out for other gamers? I know there is a manual, but usually real life experience tells you more about these things. Thanks.
