    Youth Academy

    Hello,

    I don't know whether to invest money into ITS, or just buy trainees? Investing I think, could be more rewarding, but it could up more expensive and is more risky. Buying trainees I think is the safer option, though could be more expensive also.

    Money wise, I have a 8850 seater stadium and for today's game received £39157 in gate receipts.

    I also currently have two trainees;

    Code:
    Toby Brough - 17 yo, BT Rating=3,871
    RH Batsman, RF Bowler, respectable batting form, respectable bowling form, changeable
    An attacking player with woeful leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    Stamina: 	woeful 	Wicket Keeping: 	worthless
    Batting: 	respectable 	Concentration: 	mediocre
    Bowling: 	worthless 	Consistency: 	worthless
    Fielding: 	woeful
    
    Chris Toney - 17 yo, BT Rating=4,250
    RH Batsman, LH Spin Bowler, respectable batting form, respectable bowling form, changeable
    A destructive player with woeful leadership skills and woeful experience.
    Stamina: 	feeble 	Wicket Keeping: 	abysmal
    Batting: 	respectable 	Concentration: 	mediocre
    Bowling: 	worthless 	Consistency: 	worthless
    Fielding: 	worthless
    Who are both on 2xbatting, 1xstamina each.

    So I guess the question is: Youth Academy. Worth it? Or not.

    Also with only 523 members, a 8850 stadium is big enough right? (5000 standing, 2800 uncovered, 770 covered, 280 members)

    While setting up your team I think it is a better option to buy trainees. But in your case it now looks like you have long term trainees, this therefore gives you the option of investing in your YA to earn profits etc. I think it is a worthwhile for you to start it just for the money you can get out of it.

    Any more questions ask away!?

    Cheers, guess I'll set it up.

    Might put 20k into it until the end of season, lets me use them up at the start of next season, after everyone ages.

    I like the look of my trainee's, today's match;

    Toney - 111* (97)
    Brough - 82(97)

    How low should I let the condition drop? If I'm planning to put ITS on a 17 year old?
    It's feeble atm.

    I'd just leave it til early next season and make a decision then. The academy repairs are instantaneous and you can do as many as you like in one go, so you don't need to do any til you're about to put some ITS into someone.

    Yeah and you'd be wasting your money because that 17 yr old would have aged to 18 with little or no training.

    I just look for a good bargain on the transfer market train him up sell him for double the money i paid,invest that money in ITS so far so good i think i've got 53? ITS and i'm not gunna use them all yet just keep investing $8000 till i've got plenty of ITS and make 2 good players (Y)

    Yep, was a good decision IMO in the end.

    Got two decent players;

    Derek Akona (1344100)
    RH Batsman, RM Bowler, respectable batting form, respectable bowling form, fresh
    A cautious player with superb leadership skills and abysmal experience.

    Stamina: competent Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: competent Concentration: respectable
    Bowling: worthless Consistency: feeble
    Fielding: worthless

    Stu Dean (1274209)
    RH Batsman, RH Spin Bowler, respectable batting form, respectable bowling form, fresh
    A steady player with strong leadership skills and worthless experience.

    Stamina: mediocre Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: worthless Concentration: worthless
    Bowling: competent Consistency: mediocre
    Fielding: worthless

    Both have popped here are there. Full ITS
