    Fairly good training for me, fielding pops for Umar and Hasham, consistency for Hasham and Rehmatullah and fitness for Hasham.

    If he gets some of those guys though, our fixture will be amusing at the end of the season.

    Well if you end up getting thrashed off a good team then there's no shame in that. It'd be worse if he had a team with mostly mediocre ratings and he beat you, that would be somewhat embarrassing really...

    I still don't know what happened there, I didn't put stupid orders in either.

    Just one of those blips really.

    Avery

    Now, surely, you're going to stop his training (except perhaps stamina)?

    Obviously any extra stamina would be good and certainly not wasted on a fast bowling all-rounder, one of the most demanding (PFL-wise) types of player you could have. I see no reason at all why he shouldn't continue training in him in bowling at least as well as the stamina when appropriate. He's got good batting, stamina, fielding so you want to keep someone like that in your team and keeping his bowling up would do that.

    But training a 21 year old who doesn't even have that high stats is a bit of a waste IMO. For high primaried players, I think it's justifiable to cope with the longer training times since there's quite a difference, in the larger picture, between an Exceptional and a Sensational, but the difference between Strong and Superb just doesn't justify another 15 weeks of training or so.

    That said, who knows? Actually looking at his team, I think that maybe it would be worth getting him to superb.

  11. #911
    Financially you'd get a very good return on one bowling net for that guy, would easily add at least half a million to his value for 15/16 nets it would take, so you're getting over 30k a net. The stronger your finished players are the better, because it costs so much to buy in decent players but you can still get YPs fairly cheap. His bowling also won't get superseded for ages if you train him a bit more and it'd be a shame to have all that batting, fielding etc. wasted because his bowling isn't good enough - especially given that new era YP bowlers tend to have worthless batting (and fielding).

    Hirst has finally popped:

    Code:
    8. Vincent Hirst - 21 yo, BT Rating=29,799
    LH Batsman, LF Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, sublime
    A destructive player with superb leadership skills and woeful experience.
    Stamina: 	competent 	Wicket Keeping: 	woeful
    Batting: 	woeful 	Concentration: 	feeble
    Bowling: 	quality 	Consistency: 	quality
    Fielding: 	woeful
    I'm in two minds over whether to stop training him or not...might put the extra bowling net on to Gibb (19yo Strong/Strong) or Verma (19yo Strong/Resp with Resp/Feeble batting),

    The thing is, being a destructive fast bowler, an extra level could come in very handy - the aforementioned 19yo's are on the cautious side.

    I would stop training Avery and keep training Hirst, but don't listen to me, i know nothing. Both players are better then any players i have.
