I've always wondered if having a big squad and lots of players in a certain position, for example strikers, would mean a Youth Acadamy striker would be less likely to join due to the high level of competition for places.

Well today I got the answer. I had 8 strikers in my squad, which lets be honest is far to many. Yesterday I clicked promote on a promising attacking youth. I was convinced he was off to flip burgers. However, to my surprise he has signed up as my ninth striker!

Hopefully he can work his way up the pecking order, I don't even have room for him in the reserves at the moment! hahaha

My youth forward had just turned 100 rated in the academy. I'm assuming he won't improve beyond this?

Looking to promote soon and although would like to keep him for the future, I would also take realistic offers into consideration.

I recruited the next level coach from a 1 day search at 5501+ rating.
I then fired the lowly level coach (1 out of 2) and today my youth - 2 of them have shot up.
Coincidence? Coaches shouldn't improve Youth should they?

Ooft my 16 year old striker is now rated 94..

With him being 3 ratings off his max as his current atts are 92/93/97

but I'll still wait till he is 18 regardless if he maxes early or not or if he even budges anymore at all, with 2 youth promotions this season I'd rather wait a season and a bit to try and boost my chances. its just hoping he joins now though :L

I'm in a very similar position. Got a 95 rated defender who is 17. But I've already had two successful promotes this season so I'm terrified of hitting the promote button and losing him. Am going to do the same as you, hold on till next season and then hope for the best.

I've had unbalanced and hit 100 though the outcome wasn't as fantastic as it should have been (my winger)

Pulled the trigger on a couple of handy youths for promotion tomorrow night. Fingers crossed.

I've had a couple 90+ promotions pre tweak, and they come with 80s fixed too,

so I'm hoping this 1 is good, I feel like I deserve it after-all I have seen some managers switch clubs search 16-18 year olds and found 90+ which I think is ridiculously unfair, but hey ho I guess variance plays a part in the game, there's short term luck involved in this game and long term there is no luck just skill (: As I think I have found the formula for great youths. although I can't be too sure as like I said it may just be short term luck.

Both promoted. All 90s keeper, Georgiou, and an 80s midfielder, Antunes. Happy days



Now, sell or train. Hmmm

Coincidence. Only youth coaches improve youths (no doubt as you suspected was the case).

I just hit promote on a 70 rated defender. Already had two promote this season so not expecting a third to sign up. Will see what happens tonight.

Glad I kept hold of this guy since he's rocketed up to 79 now. Here's hoping for a few more points before he hits 18.

Shows what I know! He promoted! That's three in a row, not used to that. Worried now though as I have another 17 year old and he is rated 95. He is the one I really want, hope he makes it four in a row when he turns 18.

Nicely done, he should squeeze up a little higher I would guess.

Nice one. Will he stay 17 until the new season? Does the promotion probability reset on a new season or is it on a rolling basis?

Yeah, he seems to have really taken off this season after doing almost nothing the first year. Still 16 too. Crossing everything that he promotes.

Yeah I don't think he will turn 18 till next season. Not sure about the rolling thing, am hoping it resets with a new season, thus giving him a better chance of promoting.

G Packilan (10) promoted today
17 year old. 95 rated in the academy.
He turned out better than my 100 rated winger when promoted.
Has been about 2 seasons in the acadamy.

Any of the super teams want to buy him or tell me what he's worth? (Message me even for a debate)

I'm very pleased. Out goes one (a striker sale today at 3.75m) and in comes this potential superstar.

Out of my price range, but a top class youth!
