I have a Celtic save (3 seasons in) with about 90% of the players being Scottish. The others are from home nations as well.

It's what I to do get my Celtic fix these days, since we started signing some weird random players in real life and it's slowly ****ing me off.

But normally, even when I don't do things like that on purpose, I end up with a fairly homogeneous squad. Can't remember the last time I signed a Non-EU player to be honest. Has a lot to do with my habit of pushing one or two players from the youth setup into the first team each season as well.

I'm playing as Rangers, currently up to October 2012 (having taken charge in December 2011).

There are 34 players in my squad overall...

15 are Scottish

2 are Argentinian

2 are Brazilian

2 are English

2 are Italian

2 are Northern Irish

1 is Belgian

1 is Bulgarian

1.is Czech

1 is Spanish

1 is Icelandic

1 is Libyan (was French with dual nationality, Libyan became his primary nationality when he started playing U21 internationals)

1 is Slovenian

1 is Tunisian and

1 is American

Of those, my favoured starting XI would consist of...8 Scots, 1 Belgian, 1 N. Irish and 1 Italian

Nationality doesn't really concern me too much, but I realise that I do have a slight tendency to favour signing players of my team's nation (in this case Scottish), then players who speak the native tongue, then players who are foreign and won't understand their potential teammates. If they're very young then the language thing doesn't quite bother me so much, but I still favour bringing up talent belonging to that nation where possible just through personal preference. I've got 6 players currently in the U19 squad at Rangers. 3 of the 6 are Scottish, and 2 of the 6 came up from Rangers' own academy. While one of those 3 Scots is unlikely to have a future at the club, the other two are getting semi-regular first team appearances for the experience, and I've got Tottenham poking their noses in trying to offer £850k for one of those two (who I'm not selling)

I'm with Atletico Madrid, 2017.

The ones I use are:

5 Spaniards (1 starter, keeper. The rest are CB, DMC, AMC, RB)

4 Brazilians (1 starter, LB. The rest are keeper, keeper, DMC.)

3 Argentinians (1 starter, ST. The rest are LW, DMC.)

2 Englishmen (2 starters, RB, LW)

2 Frenchmen (2 starters, CB, AMC)

2 Dutchmen (1 starter, CB)

1 Ghanaian (CB)

1 Italian (DMC)

1 Malian (1 starter, ST)

1 Paraguayan (ST)

1 Portugese (1 starter, DMC)

1 American (1 starter, RW)

1 Croatian (ST)

1 Andorran (RW, LW, AMC. My super sub.)

Domestic Player Bias: 8. :(

However, the Englishmen, the Andorran, the Croatian, 2 of the Brazilians (soon 3), the Ghanaian, the Italian, one of the Argentinians, and both Dutchmen are all home grown, in addition to the Spaniards. The average age of the squad is 23, but they've managed to win every trophy possible. :cool:

You would have bought a number of them when they were younger though? It would be crazy if all were regens at your club.

Your Tynan has an amazing scoring record and a price to match. Rare to see a 5-star player, even if I have one.

How many of them are in the England squad?

No, they were all regens at my club :D

Tynan is awesome, and one of the reasons I built this team of all-youth products. The 5 stars are a bit misleading though as they are relative to the other strikers in my squad, who aren't really that good.

Currently 12 of them are in the England squad.

All regens at your club? Clearly going for a club-grown policy then. I take it that some of them are just half-decent then.

How successful are you with this club-grown policy in terms of titles won?

The quality within my starting lineup does vary quite a bit, from the 5 star £37m rated striker Tynan to the 2 star £5m rated left back Morrison. They are all decent and Premier League quality, but nothing like the quality I could have if I had brought the players in.

I've had this type of squad for the last four years and I've won 2 PL titles and 2 CL titles, but I'd built the club up beforehand. You can read about it here if you want to see the full story.

Usually I have loads of different nationalities, but in my current save i'm trying to only buy domestic players, so Valencia:

GK, RB, CB, CB, LB, DM, AMR, AMC, AML, SC: All Spanish

MC: Argentine.

Hopefully next year all 11 will be spanish!

In my most successful squad for wolves i had any nationality:

GK: Mexican

RB: English

LB: Welsh

CB: Columbian

CB: Argentine/English/N.Irish

DM: Scottish/English

MC: French/Belgian

MR: Argentine

ML: Argentine

FC: French/Ukrainian

SC: Bosnian

So potentially 10 different nationalities!

Well my team (Betis) has:

11 Spaniards (and with only one player out of position I can play a starting line-up in Spanish)

1 French

2 Dutch

So my squad is pretty eclectic but it has a strong core of Spaniards, of the 11, 6 are pretty regular in the first XI.
