I've got two midfield youths that are 17 and will be turning 18 very soon. One is rated 71, and the other 91. The 71 rated turns 18 first and both have roughly 30 days plus left of their contracts.
Obviously I want both to promote, but it's the 91 rated that I really want.
Do I take the risk and try and promote the 91 or do I just let them decide their fate when they turn 18?
Tough call that....
I'd consider the following:
- When did I last try to promote and player and was it successful. This season? How many days ago? And how many have I promoted recently.
- When are they going to turn 18 (do you know more precisely the days of their 18th birthdays? and how far apart they are?
- How long each player has been in the academy, this is supposed to increase your chances of a successful promotion.
