Dont take an aside as why I did this. It’s not about the money. Playing on the market is some of the fun for me and overall it’s done me well.You have a squad of 18 and 12 of them are under 22 so do you not have 9 players who have the opportunity to net with at least 2 stars for something- - ideally u have 9 players always who need a lot of netting and as 2 or 3 drop off from the top each season as they near or reach 22 they are replaced at the bottom by 16 year olds so maximising the stars you can coach on 9 nets. However I would rather even use up a net on a 21 year old who is going to be part of the future than on a 17 year old i am going to sell - because the objective is to create the best team possible as i see it - not use your coaching spaces as a money farm which a player with no future is (if he even makes money) but i totally get that sometimes YP, revenues, TM opportunities do not provide that smooth conveyor belt - i see Toddii is a late bloomer - if he is not netting maybe you are missign a chance to get 1 more out of his SS ? (difficult to know without seeing the coaching stars)
I’m always playing and coaching my best players towards the future squad. But I’m willing to adjust and try new things in getting there, because it the only way to learn and it’s not always obvious between similar players which actually maximises the squad overall. Also, my squad is only getting to the start of something that is truly competitive. Mostly I’ve been building towards this squad for a little while, and found myself consistently improving the overall squad as my cash increased and opportunity came about. So like most of us there is normally about 3 places in my coaching that are flexible because I’ve never had more than 6 players that where guaranteed for the senior squad. Unless you have 9 players that are 48+ potentials and under 22 of age there is no absolute in the coaching.
