Hi, I'm new. A Leeds fan who saw the game mentioned in a post on Waccoe and thought I'd give it a whirl.
Having a bit of beginners luck, currently top of table with 15pts from 7 games. Although with games today & tomorrow against the teams in 4th & 3rd (both of whom seem stronger than me) that may change quickly.
Still figuring things out. Just starting to see some players suffering from not getting games and I don't know how to set up reserve matches for them, and I don't think I'm seeing many improvements from training yet, so I may need to work on that. The other aspect I'm still getting to grips with is recruitment, both players and staff. Have bids in, but yet to see if they've been successful.
First of all, hi and welcome!
It is difficult to manage all your players' match fitness, especially the players who you wouldn't play in a competitive match, which is why reserve matches are so important. I would suggest creating a thread under the "Reserve Matches" section and then all you need to do is wait on someone to send you an invite, which you can then accept.
As regards training, just try different things out. Don't just try to improve the player rating, but think about what specific attributes would be most important for different types of players. The link to "What's under the squad tab?" in the help files gives an overview of what training improves certain skills. Keep this in mind when selecting training.
Personally, I'm finding it difficult to find the right players to bring into the club. All the best players will have lots of bids and be quite expensive so then you have to weigh up the positives against the negatives. I'm holding off at the moment hoping that the transfer market will become more stable and I also want to give my existing players a chance to improve and then I can better evaluate which players I don't want and if I need players to replace them etc. There's no need to rush, this is a long-term game!
Hope that helps a little but after all, you have your own team and ultimately every decision lies with you. Good luck!
