Makes sense, thanks. I'm giving all my 3.5-4 star guys 10 minutes at the end of every match regardless of the score so I shouldn't have too many problems.

How many subs can we make? I am doing similar, but set it so the DM & GK youngsters get time only if we lead, all other scores my LW, MC & DL get a run.

Just three subs, otherwise I'd be chucking everyone on. It's probably cost me a point or two but in the long run it should turn out all good.

It's 0.1 routine per game if they've played 10mins or more. 0.3 per competitive international. So yeah it takes a while. 



Do Challenge matches/Friendlies count?

Nah, only competitve matches - league, cup, international tournaments.

So if your player played every game in a league season, you'd expect him to gain 3.5 routine (plus 0.1 per cup match win)

So got a new Youth Product today...Who is more believable? Youth Dev who say 3.5 Pot, or My Sen 19/Yth 20/Dev 20 Scout?

Jim Imms  (Great Name too)

Also if my Scout is more believable should I hire the other 10 guys in my Youth Dev area who are 2.5 or less stars on the chance one of them shows up to the Scout as higher?

Youth development is almost always wrong in my experiences, your scout will be closer to the truth. I would give it a go for anyone over 2 stars in case they might be a 3 star player, if not just fire them.

I have two of these cases today, Nicolas Hay is scouted at 2.5 stars by Youth Dev but I fear he's lower than that (have no scouts atm), while Ned Shinner is scouted as a 3 but I'm hoping he's higher as he looks like a stud.

PS: why do you pull the older talents, guys who are age 20 and so? Is it just personal preference instead of getting 17/18 year old players?

Umm can I change it to give me 17-18yr olds? If so where?

When you get to choose your position you want the youth to play, it has "older talents", there's a drop down box where you can get normal talents - 17/18 year olds, and younger talents (15/16 but costs 2 pro days). Just gives you a bit more use with those guys - at the age of 20 they will be 2/2.5 stars instead of 1.5 and will have more routine

Afraid I can't at the moment because I've already drafted my youth guys for this week, somebody who hasn't quite yet should be able to, the option is only available on Saturday before you've selected your youth so you won't be able to see it until next Saturday.

Further Question time.

As I am really getting into this I have been pondering paying for Pro. 

First off it says that it is for a "Year" what exactly does that give me, is it 365 Pro Days, or is it something else?

Secondly is it worth it? Benefits vs cost?

And anything else anyone has to say about Pro would be great as well.

For post horse

One year = 365 days pro.  I've had pro basically since I started playing so I can't really remember what it's like without it.  I'll give you some pro days so you can see the additional features and go from there.

For post horse

......sorry, might have to wait until Tegal is on.  I'm not sure how I actually transfer the pro.  If someone an let me know what screen I go to, I'll put it through.

Personally I'm not the type of person who has online subscriptions and the like, but the main attraction for TM Pro has to be having a B team, it's pretty much impossible to make it to the top without a B side, so if I get good I might have to reconsider. At the moment those videos mean I usually have 1/2 spare pro days, meaning I can have the benefits of most of the Pro stuff without having to pay up.

You'll need club ID and it takes a 'tax'

So, any theories on this? My new youth guy, Nick Watson ...

Two scouts say his specialty is Technical... he comes out of the youth academy with a 14 for Technical... but they both rate him as "poor" technically... wtf?

I am trying to work out whether I should focus his training on technical, or fitness to begin with...

14 technique is good, for a midfielder though he needs to work on his passing, positioning and workrate
