Make sure you change the training to something relevant/useful and make sure you go on the youth training page and do a youth pull each week. Don't worry too much about the youth/senior academy investments yet, see how much money you're making/losing and use that to help you decide.
When logged in to FTP if you go on help or click on the forum link you'll be able to find other advice.
I find it a lot harder to navigate and control everything on From the Pavilion compared to Battrick.
