I would think they would both have an influence, probably Set Pieces would be slightly more important.

Right, looking for some advice now on my youngsters. today I got myself a new Left Winger from my Youths, and wondering what the best way is to go about development? In the case of my young left back, he is just playing as he was already better than the replacements, my young centre back gets some time off the bench.

What is the best way to get your youngsters to develop?

Here is my new left Wing: Richard Vicelich

Since its new, I'm still learning as well. Haven't really had the time to pay too close attention to it either. 

From what I gather, the most important thing is not to keep training players in attributes that they have peaked in. Every player has a peak for every stat, after which they'll slow in improvement. So with this new training, you really need to keep an eye on attribute changes. At the moment I just chuck defenders into defence training etc, but keep an eye on things they need improvement in e.g DMs get switched around occasionally between technique and defence. But I don't really know what I'm doing. 

Anyone else have a better idea of how exactly it works, and a good strategy to use in training players? I'd also be very interested to hear.

Yeah I'm not too sure what I'm doing either.  From what I can see on the forums and through chat it seems you do have to switch your players between different regimes a bit (although I haven't really bothered too much especially for defenders and forwards - just stuck them in the defence and finishing regime).  I think the training changes were supposed to make it easier, but I can't be bothered keeping tabs and the various attribute changes so it'll probably mean my players don't turn out as well.

I am trying the customise training with a guy who is going through bloom at the moment to see how he turns to - only a 3 star player though (don't want to ruin anyone too good).

What I don't understand is how (apart from running a spreadsheet or somethign and doing HEAPS of tracking and book keeping) you are supposed to identify when a player has peaked in a particular stat. I can see how by activating the graphs how you can see what they have done. But the graphs don't (easily) show you time in a granular enough way that you can make a call. all you can do is check the graphs and suddenly notice that someone hasn't gone up in something for a while... indicating that they peaked (ages ago) and then you can react by shifting their training... but by then you've wasted several weeks...

Is Vicelich really a 5-star guy? If so, I am incredibly jealous.

Was according to my Youth Devellopment report, the Scout report by my 20/20 guy shows him as a 4-star guy, but works for me.

With my position and sponsor goals secure, I'm pondering playing the youth on Wednesday - I usually bring guys on for 10 minutes or so for routine, does giving them a whole game change anything? Or is it just the same 0.1 routine. Oh, and do suspensions get wiped in the off-season? I can't remember.

Nah length doesn't matter, its still just 0.1 routine as long as they play 5 (or 10?) minutes. I'm probably going to change things up for my last game a little too. Have set subs to the scoreline not mattering for now. 

I don't think suspensions get wiped. Injuries go down by 3 games or so though. They usually give he details in the form of an announcement, probably sometime tonight.

I think it is something strange like 9 minutes - so basically 10 mins to get the 0.1 routine.  Yeah, I think suspensions stay the same but the yellow card count gets wiped so you start on 0 points again if the player wasn't suspended.

On that note, it actually just occurred to me to drop any player who is one yellow card away from a ban for the final game. Since picking up a yellow in this meaningless game would mean they're suspended for next season?

That's probably a good idea.  Unfortautnely I've got something to play for on this game, so I've got to go with all guns blazing (and hope NSU do the same).

Yeah looks like I'll be playing a B team in my last game of the season, gotta avoid suspensions so four of my best players will be sitting, good thing I've got my positions secured.

Well looks highly likely I will finish the season 13th, 1 spot off sponsor goal. I scored enough goals with 52, the same number as the league champion, but they also conceded 52 goals less than me as my team conceded the second most in the league...OUCH, I think I need to look into my defence

Is there a point at which you MUST upgrade to level 2 floodlights? If so, when?

When you enter international competition. So after winning the cup or top 6 in premier league.

Right, so time for me to ask for some assistance/help:

Last season my team started out with me knowing nothing and getting results, after 10 rounds we were in the top 5, then something happened and since the team has only won about 3 games total. I had made some changes to tactics, so tried reversing those, but to no avail. My squad in general is still the same sort of level, but I can't buy a trick. My team can score goals, but we just let in too many.

The squad has a bunch of 2.5-3 star players, I think 1 better than that. Have tried selling some of the lesser players, but I don't even get a bid. I do have nearly 50m in the bank at the moment. 

So my questions are where do I go from here and what would you suggest as a way for me to work on getting the team performing better going forward. Any thoughts at all would be useful

Start with a really good keeper. 3.5 - 4.5 stars. Don't rush. Pay attention to the market, gauge how much they cost for what level, assess what you can afford and get the best you can afford.

Look at the teams you are playing against. Assess their midfield. Midfield has a significant affect on %age possession. If their midfield is weak, if your midfield is stronger you'll enjoy more posession... if their midfield is strong and yours is weak, you will be starved of possession. Consider playing one more midfielder (to 5) if they are strong to try and nullify them...

Check your strikers' abilities. If they are fast, play through balls... if they are tall and good headers, play wingers or long balls... if you can't tell play balanced.

Set up subs so that if you are losing at 65 (ish) mins you change something. If you are losing, and keep doing the same thing, you'll probably keep losing.

Other than that, yell at the screen more at crucial points of games. That helps. And/or buy better players.
