Player Smart Search is the right scouting tool to find and compare players among the top football leagues. Available features like radar charts and player comparison are accessible and intuitive to use. The tool I appreciate the most is the filter, with which you can easily shortlist favourite players according to one or more KPI, saving you tons of time and resources.
How to easily scout for players and build the perfect FPL squad? PSS! There aren't many tools that solve the trade-off between the depth of the analysis and the time spent on it... and the Player Smart Search certainly does that! Apart from the clear advantage of monitoring the PL players on all the most important metrics, it gives the possibility to keep an eye on the Championship players, which is key for having an edge for the new teams each year. It’s been a massive help this season and thankfully my mates aren’t using it yet...don’t tell them!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Soccerment’s “Player Smart Search” is a data-driven scouting tool, which allows the user to find the targeted footballers, based on their statistics and/or their performance indices.
We developed the “Player Smart Search” to meet the needs of three typologies of users:
– Football Professionals, who look for very specific details about the players’ performances: they can filter more than sixty variables, including statistics, personal details, physical attributes and tactical roles.
– Journalists, Bloggers and Fanalysts, who can quickly select one of our pre-set searches and then make their own adjustments and tweaks, to find their perfect search settings.
– Football Fans, who can easily use Soccerment’s Performance Indices and Machine Learning algorithms to find the perfect players for their teams.
A data-driven filtering system offers, in our view, two main advantages to its users:
1. An easy and fast selection of a number of characteristics that the target player should have, so to form a limited shortlist of players to analyse; we developed the tool to maximise its responsiveness, making it both user-friendly and fast.
2. By analysing the stats of football players, we often find counterintuitive results. The eyes sometimes deceive us: that one forward that we deemed as a top player, is not included in the shortlist we just created… instead, there is that other forward that we didn’t believe was good enough. Was it because of the settings we engineered, or maybe that second player deserves further analysis? In both cases, Soccerment’s tools are here to help.
The easiest and fastest way to scout football players, for any role and position, is surely to use the Soccerment Performance Indexes and the Soccerment Performance Rating (SPR). Quickly select a range (from 0 to 100) for the value of one or more of the following Indexes:
Looking for creative attacking midfielders?
First, within the “Soccerment Indexes” section, select the “Vision” and “Dribbling” indexes and increase the two parameters (try setting both of them above 50). Now, why not showing only the players who are 23 or younger? Go into “Personal details” and adjust the age, and your shortlist is ready!
Ideal for football analysts or for the many ones who dream of becoming a football data analyst, this very detailed search type will lead you to the shortlist of the perfect players for any tactical needs.
Start by choosing the League and/or the Season. Then, select the role you are looking for and the personal details. Also, using the “General performance” section, you can limit the search to the footballers having played a certain amount of time and/or having made at least n appearances.
Finally, choose among the many event stats per 90 minutes, accuracy and success ratios we have selected, and split into four different sections: Attacking, Defending, BuildUp and One vs One stats.
Looking for tall defenders (>190 cm) who are left-footed and display a high passing accuracy in both halves of the pitch?
Find them in your own way (passing accuracy parameters are >90% in own half, >75% in opposition half) or see the list!
We see this as the perfect tradeoff between a fast search executed using the performance indexes and a more detailed player search obtained by picking every single stat. Our list of pre-set roles will let you find, in seconds, the best players with the specific skills you’re looking for, according to our machine-learning algorithms:
SWEEPER KEEPER: the modern goalkeepers, able to distribute the ball and contribute to their teams’ build-up, but nevertheless retain higher-than-average saving stats (i.e. Manuel Neuer).
BALL PLAYING DEFENDER: centre-backs who are asked to start their team’s buildup and do not limit themselves to easy lateral passes (i.e. Leonardo Bonucci).
COMPLETE WING-BACK: full-backs able to attack and/or wingers who are able to defend, constantly moving from their own half to the opposite one (i.e. Trent Alexander-Arnold).
DEEP LYING PLAYMAKER: holding midfielders who specialise in passing, setting the tempo for their team’s buildup. A team normally revolves around them (i.e. Sergio Busquets).
BOX TO BOX MIDFIELDER: midfielders who are hard-working and who have good all-round abilities, which makes them skilled at both defending and attacking (i.e. Paul Pogba).
TREQUARTISTA: half midfielders, half forwards, these players move between the lines, using their higher-than-average technical skills and outstanding vision to create chances for the rest of the team or for themselves (i.e. Dimitri Payet).
CREATIVE WINGER: there are two types of creative wingers: with or without routines. Either way, they will end up dribbling their opponents, creating numerical superiority and dangerous opportunities (i.e. Jadon Sancho).
COMPLETE FORWARD: physically structured, but fast, the “Complete Forwards” also possess a higher-than-average soccer-IQ. This complete skillset allows them to score, assist and also contribute to their team’s buildup (i.e. Edin Dzeko).
TARGET MAN: a particular type of striker whose main role is to win high balls in the air and create chances for their teammates, in addition to scoring goals themselves. Usually tall and physically strong (i.e. Olivier Giroud).
POACHER: goal poachers are forwards who wait in the six-yard box or the penalty area for a cross, pass or loose ball and pounce to try to score a goal. They will often score a goal out of the slightest of opportunities (i.e. Mauro Icardi).
