That's a really good promotion rate! What's your secret?! Or is the secret promoting no good players only?

All I do is carefully choose the right moment to promote them. Maybe it works, maybe I'm just lucky, who knows?

Agreed, I dont think anyone knows the secret.

I used to lose decent players but as my CR has got better I get a high rate of promotions.

One thing I?ve noticed is they never promote when my squad numbers are low, with a warning from the board.

It?s not what most of us thought early in the game but bigger squad improves the chances in my experience.

I wonder what a 'right moment' would be in your opinion. But I would understand if you do not want to reveal all your tricks!

I could understand the logic of a club with a higher rating, i.e. a bigger club, would attract a youth player more than a club with a lower rating. If it is true that a smaller squad would lead to less promtion of youths then that would be really frustrating to the manger who really has to get more players in his team!

My squad size was at 14 when I started promoting youths into it lol.

The general mantra has always been that you want youths in your academy for as long as possible, I apply that in a particular way though, I try to avoid letting them turn 18 for example.

Them not being any good may be the key to your success.

Whenever I have been desperate to promote a youth, any youth, and I try a bad one, or I've scouted a good youth and I sacrifice a duff by trying a promotion, they always promote. Though when I try to promote a good one, I've got a much lower success rate.

In the previous revisions my best youth academy players never promoted. My best 2 or 3 never promoted, and the next best would probably get 1 in 3 or 4 through successfully.

I am lucky at the moment as my best youths, to date, have each promoted, but I have had a handful of youths decline.

Youths are the games future. (they should be anyway)
I, for one, wouldn't mind a 1 out of 3 ratio accepting...if they're half decent.
This should apply to all clubs whether you're the best, or the worst.
Some of the best players in the world(over the years) were discovered by so-called meaningless clubs.
Give us good youths, and see where it takes us!

I know i'm sick of squandering cash on youths, as it is.

I have no idea of the correct formula so I just promote with 1 day left. I know theyre unlikely to promote if theyve only been there less than 1 season.

However I was lucky in my other team with a 17 year old who turned 18 3 days after joining. He accepted and had lowest FA of 57.

Also I have noticed the quality of youths are better now. Could it be higher CR?

I rarely see any good youths scouted so I just take what looks best but when they promote they seem to be decent quality. Better than their youth rating suggests.

You must have punted a few players then.
I sold a keeper for 11M because his stats looked good. (still feel kinda guilty, but letting off a little steam now)He was maxed out, or thereabouts.
Still, he looked good as a young keeper.(stats-wise)
Don't try and kid a kidder.

How many managers out there who have bought a youth player they are happy with?

Maybe you do! but what about the rest?
It's only 'fools gold'
Maybe one day, the most important part of the game will be addressed.

Don't misunderstand me so fast LM.

I wanted a low value, low potential ex youth and that's what I got and was happy with.

Perhaps, one day the youth system will be addressed. I wouldn't necessarily call the most important aspect of the game. Other areas are just as 'important'.

I would call it one of the most important, hey, that's just me though!

Who is the kidder? Me?

Youve lost me!

I?ve sold youths for 8m and 5m this season.

Ive got 2 youth defenders that I?m happy with and a youth DM in my team.

I see 50-60 rated youths as an improvement but like I said I dont know if it?s due to game development or improved CR.
