To Many Star Regens! :( What to do?


Recommended Posts

So..

I sold everyone in Liverpool just about, and signed around 2 teams worth of 4.5-5 star potential youngsters!

All these young guys have kept there potential ratings well, so there all going to be stars if I give them game time, train them correctly etc..

But now the issue is, I have way to many star players, and I don't have a clue who to sell, they are all going to be world class!

Main Team

Reserve Team

Under 18's

Normally, if I sign a young player, and he can't hold his initial potential level, his star rating will drop. I have had the odd player do this, and sold them off. However I am getting 85% or there a bout's, success rate of maintaining players potential..

thats one of the main issues with the game, i wish there was a mod to hide potential ability

That is not really an issue in this case, you can tell just at the main stats page what the player's potential will be..

And I have this guy coming next season, for FREE!

They're pretty good, and according to my scouts, are only half way to their potential!

That is my probel atm. I`m in 2022 and have a ton of excellent players who i have brought up since they were 15 but i simply do not have enough space to satisfy them all, so i just narrow it down to how many i need to sell by picking the UGLY ones!! and i also add on 50% of next transfer.

Ugly as in, ugly looking??

lol.

I do not know what to do. I just signed as many English players I could as I only had Wilshere at one stage.. I sort of want to keep a lot of them, Mex is a gen.

It would be good if there wasn`t a 5 star potential but only a 3 star as this would be even harder to find the next big gun.

I mean, if it was like the current CA and PA it could be like...1 star - 1-69 PA 2 star - 70-139 PA and 3 star - 140-200 PA

Not to rain on your parade, but you could always try not signing so many players.

Seriously, it's one of the basic tenets of management - keep your squad manageable. Signing a player that you don't know how you're going to use is just throwing your money away - it doesn't matter whether he's the new Leo Messi or the new Emile Heskey, if all he's going to do is warm up the keeper at half-time, he's no use to you as a manager.

If you've got players you can definitely see playing for you at some point in the future, but have better first-teamers at the moment, then you can always send them out on loan (or possibly even sell them on, but with a buy-back clause in the future). But it seems that OP's problem is a combination of a loose wallet and looking so far into the future that he forgets about the season in front of him.

However, there's certainly mileage in the idea that there are a lot more world-class regens turning up this year than I've noticed in previous years.

While I see your point, I at one stage had over 100mil as transfer budget and nearly 1mil in wages spare, and did not need to spend it.

I won't get double next season, I just lose it, so I spend it.

I am going to go through my squad end of this season, streamline it. Most of my players are worth 10+mil, some even 30mil now, so will get quite so cash out of it..

But it doesn't matter how much you have in the transfer kitty - if you've got a good squad, by spending that money, you're just wasting that money AND making your life more difficult by giving yourself a large squad that you haven't got a hope of keeping happy. Just because you have it doesn't mean you have to spend it.

Point in case - I'm managing Leicester in 2017/18. We're comfortably mid-table fodder, regularly getting humped by top four teams, but doing pretty well against most other teams. This summer, I had £16m to spend, and a £100k gap in my wage bill. However, after an exhaustive search of the transfer market, there simply wasn't anyone I felt could improve my squad at a sensible price. Sure, I could have gambled £85k a week and £12m on a player who *might* have done that, but if it didn't work out, I've just made my job harder for the next season or two.

Bottom line is, sometimes it's actually a better move not to make a signing. There's always January if the first few months identify a particular problem area or if you get a rash of injuries.
