I've been playing the fastest FM game I've ever done thanks to the touch version + instant results. It's a cheap game since I'm doing that plus using genie scout. The point of it is I'm trying to see how much I could raise the Dutch league's profile + how great I could make Heerenveen.
I believe I'm in season 21/22 now. I won the Europa league last year and have been winning the league for the last 5 years.
It's great, you can finish a season in a long evening. Good if you want to focus on seeing how players develope.
Out of curiousity, are your own youth intakes any good? I'm doing exactly the same as you, only using Instant results with Milan, and the best regen I got had a potential of 122. Disappointing to say the least
In my Juve game Atalanta and Roma produce a great amount of young talent. I'm only in my 5th season and Roma already have 5 or 6 170+ PA players in their youth ranks. The Atalanta youngsters are more around 150, but still very good. They also have a good youth recruitment reputation in real life. Both clubs have a rivalry with Juve so they rarely want to make the switch. I did manage to poach a few early on, but none from Roma. I considered starting a game with either Atalanta or Roma (or taking them over in the same game), but I bet I won't have the same luck.
I think Athletic Bilbao is another great club for regens. Barca and Real as well.

Well, in my last season I did get quite a good central midfielder, so I guess it was just ridiculously bad luck until then, but I was beginning to think there is some sort of bug in action. I had lots of regens who were good(3-4, even 5 star) according to my assistant but in Genie scout they ranged from 85 to 122. I mean...you can't misjudge someone THAT bad, can you?
In my save the best regens are scattered. The elite clubs usually have ones who may break through (apart from the one I manage, obviously) but they are more likely to appear at smaller clubs. I picked up 3 wonderkids from Ternana, Perugia and Chievo. I don't know the rest of the countries because I don't scout them that often but Hannover got a regen who wouldn't look out of place in a German World Cup squad at the age of 15
