How to find best newgens (regens) in FM20

How to find best newgens (regens) in FM20
Finding the best newgens is harder than ever with the release of Football Manager 2020. In the past, we could predict the exact day every newgen would be generated in every country, but this is no longer possible in FM2020.

However, in this FM20 guide, we will be looking at the best method that will help you in scouting and potentially buying the best regens for your club's ability.

What is a newgen (regen) in Football Manager 2020?


A regen is any player which is not included in the researched database of the game but instead generated by the game. The game uses them to replace the players who retire due to age or injury over time. Usually, they are created as the youngsters on the youth teams and join their respective clubs based on the level of the club’s youth recruitment.

Regens/Newgens are one of the most important parts of every football manager’s career. Irrespective of the size of the club you manage or the tier your club is in, quality regens could make or break the future of clubs.

FM 2020 youth intake dates now vary by club, not just country, adding an extreme level of randomness to the equation.

To make matters more complicated, the youth intake day also varies and is more dynamic making direct poaching next to impossible.

Please note that this is slightly more tedious work than previous versions of Football Manager and will require some level of patience from the manager.

Additionally, having good scouts and a high scouting budget will definitely help.

Basically, we are going to employ these 4 steps in the game to find and sieve through the best regens of your liking,

  • Add every regen to a shortlist, every month.
  • Delete whoever you feel is not worthy.
  • Filter your shortlist down to the best FM20 wonderkids, for you.
  • Scout and buy the very best or assign them to a long term targets list.

Step 1 – How to find the regens in FM2020


Before you start, I'd like you to go to your scouting screen and on the Player Shortlist screen create a new shortlist and name it Youth Intake.

OK, so now on the 1st of every month in your FM20 save, we need to add every newgen/regen from the previous month to your newly created Youth Intake shortlist.

    •  NOTE 
      • If you are trying to add regens to your shortlist from multiple intake months this may not work due to a large number of the players that you're trying to add, you need to do each month individually.

Here is how you go about doing this;

  1. Click the globe icon in the top right corner.
    • How to find best newgens (regens) in FM20
  2. Select ‘World’ from the top options, not from the left side of the menu.
    • How to find best newgens (regens) in FM20
  3. Select ‘transfers’ in the ‘general’ list.
    • How to find best newgens (regens) in FM20
  4. Now click the ‘all transfers’ drop-down menu and select ‘youth intake’.
    • How to find best newgens (regens) in FM20
  5. Select your first player for the month’s intake.
  6. Now scroll to the last player in that month, hold down ‘SHIFT’ key on your keyboard and select that player. You should have highlighted each player from the said month.
  7. Now right-click, hover over ‘add to shortlist’> ’Youth Intake’ and click ‘indefinitely’.

  8. Right-click again while all players are still highlighted and click ‘unfollow all‘. Please remember that this is a very important step which will prevent your news feed from exploding with updates.

Step 2 – Optimizing your Shortlist


You can customize your shortlist whichever way you want so that you only see what is relevant and important and influences you in evaluating the player.

However, there are a few tell-tell aspects/attributes which will go a long way in deciding the future growth of the player.

They are;

  • Personality – (Someone with a “model citizen” or an “ambitious” or “determined” personality will always find it easier to reach the top rather than someone with negative traits such as “easily discouraged” or even neutral personalities like “jovial” or “loyal”
  • Media Description – Always better to look for a “wonderkid” or a “promising talent
  • Once you have scouts assigned to the players it is always advisable to look for a release clause or a foreign release clause (if you are dealing with a South American league player) just to see if you can afford the player.
  • Depending on the scouts JPA (Judging Player Ability) & JPP (Judging Player Potential) you can also take his word on the player’s ability and potential

Before moving on to the next step I also highly recommend you to remove any players with a low determination rating (usually lower than 10). These players do not usually tend to make it to the very top and never really reach their promised potential.

Step 3 – Filtering your shortlist to only the best


Assuming that you have scouted the players on your shortlist, you should have a general idea about their attributes. The next step is a sieve through the list to filter out only what you feel is best for your club.

For that, we need to enter a new “search” and enter which position/role you are looking for. Since most good regens/newgens are generally re-trainable, the role should not matter as much as position but you will get the hang of it once you go through the list.

Let us assume we are looking for a forward, typically in an advanced forward role. You need to filter the search to look for forwards and fill in the attribute columns with what core attributes you feel the best suit a good advanced forward (like shooting, composure, pace etc). Do not keep the filters too high because please remember that these newgens are still very young and have plenty of time to develop. (If you are looking for a centre back, you will need to look for attributes such as “marking”, “Tacking” etc).

Typically, this can be done once every 6 months or every year. Remember to make the search more stringent if you are left with more choices than you bargained for so that you can choose only the very best for your club.

Step 4 – Shortlist & Buy


Now that you have all the information you need on the best youth intakes of the year, all that is left is to separate them by position using another shortlist for convenience (“Striker Shortlist”, “Defender Shortlist” etc). By this time you should only be left with the very best the game has to offer and is purely the manager’s choice whether to go for a player or not.

Please once again keep in mind that the player personality, media description and determination play a very important role in deciding the future of the player and that is the best differentiator which will show the best from the rest.
