Is this not under the training section? where you allocate focus points you used to be able to then allocate a skill card or a new position to a player. You cant train a player in a position he can already play in though.

I'm a little baffled by the training to when I had a quick look. This would just suck if true. The only thing I think is maybe hiring a better training coach will unlock more options to train your player stats, and also skill cards and new positions... ?

It also the same in Bal. I have no idea how to acquire new skill cards or learn a new positions :/

OK started my Master League today but didnt realise what "club management" option meant when starting the game. unfortunately it doesnt allow me to hire staff members who are any better, for example a better scout as so far this one has not helped me sign one player. has anyone else experience this but further into the game to know if the chairman maybe offers you a better scout at some point??

A strange thing just happened to my Youth Team setup. I'm at the winter transfer window of my 2nd season, and I had noticed in the Free Agents (always looking to wheel+deal!) that there were several players that I had seen in my Youth Team from the past 1.5 seasons. I thought, hey this is weird, they made duplicates of some of the well known kids?

Then I checked my youth team as I intended to bring Ribeiro up, only to find a bunch of a new names in there, and no Ribeiro to be found! Searching for him, I found that PSG had just signed him. The only reason I hadn't signed him over the summer is because I had signed a 25yo GK for pretty much my entire transfer budget, only for him to declare he's retiring at the end of the year!

Glad I had already signed my boy Schwarz, but something to keep in mind, it seems your youth team will turn over often!

did you say you signed a 25yo GK who then decided to retire? At aged 25? ...Was there any reason?

Nope! He just announced his retirement. I was pretty peeved after spending the majority of my transfer budget on him, too. Could've picked up a few decent squad members at that price and just stuck with one of the default squad GKs, as bad as they are.

So when is he retiring? I'm just wondering why a player in thier mid 20s has decided to retire, and a keeper of all players.... Friedels still playing and he's like 60 or something.

Half a season left with him. Trying to sign a free-agent either regen or former youth team guy, a lot of GKs available in the 72 overall range, 16 years old, 100-300k pounds.

I think if you do not sign youth players before they turn 20, they become free agents. I read something about that they stay in the youth system until 20 years old.

I restarted my ML last night after installing daymos' 360 OF. I had completed a season as Preston North End using my 2011 prequel data, but PNE is now Portsmouth, LOL. The team is the same players, but I just couldn't get into continuing.

I restarted as Millwall. I have also made a decision NOT to sign any players to my club other than youth players. I think this will be harder, but more rewarding moving forward.

Currently 1-1-1 after 3.

I believe you search for them by GROUP and they are in the free agents list during season. You negotiate with them and they may sign with you.

I think you have to wait until the first full offseason before any show up. Otherwise it's just the crap original players you release in winter (or earlier!) heh.

Am i missing something or can you only have the default team when starting a master league? In previous years you could choose between the real names and the default, i dont get it. Help!!!
