Im currently Huddersfield town in the Premiership and I was wondering what is the advantage of having your full allotment of coaches. I currently have 9 but im allowed 13. I have all different training parts covered by one coach. Has anyone seen a benefit of having 2 coaches on different training parts.


Thanks for any help and sorry if this has been covered.

Fill em up if you can afford it. More coaches = better coaching, in my experience.
Clear your coaching assignments with one click, then "auto assign" each time you gain a new member of staff.

If you use your full allocation of coaches hopefully this will enable you to maxaminse your skills and reach 5 stars in all aspects of training.

It may also be useful as it will allow you to put 2 coaches on 1 area of training (ie. shotoing); 1 may be excellent at technical and attacking training and the other may be ok at technical and attacking, but great at working with youngsters - so you can achieve a nice balance in skills that may effect your players positively?

As long as their workload is "light" it makes little difference although adding another coach may improve the star rating slightly.

Thats really poor advice and in my experience "auto assign" is a waste of time.

Also if you only have 1 coach for each area, then the workload could be higher than light and it is better if you keep it on light.

Another thing is more staff can mean you have more scouting knowledge.

I looked at my coaches training page thing and they are all light and all between 3 and 4 stars.

Do you use default training or create your own schedules?

If you use default then it makes no difference.

If you have other schedules coaches affect the speed at which attribute points are re-distributed.

Ive created my own which work well.

No chance.
Overworking coaches reduces the overall star rating. Auto Assign works perfectly for me.

I create my own schdueles for all teams and have one coach for each normally and they are light and have seen my stars rising from 3 to 4-5 now.

I always find when I auto assign that I get 3 coaches working on strength. Now that's a waste of time

I personally never use auto assign, I think you can always get the stars up by refining it yourself. It also helps you identify weakness in your staffing roles

Yeah, if you identify what areas of trainign you want to improve and then re-assign existing staff or sign new staff to those trainign areas, you should see an immediate improvement. Some areas of training are tougher to improve than others (i.e strenght & stamina very easy to improve, shooting and technique more difficult)

I just get a coach each for every area and get my Ass Man to do every area. This gets max stars and also reduces workload.
Also assman conducting training makes it realistic. :p

If you have the money to have more coaches then i would rather do this, but if finances are tight (which they often are) then I do a similar thing to Ishu, by having 1 coach per workload.

That seems a good idea.

Money isnt really an issue.

Auto assign for me often assigns things wrongly, and not optimally, I've had far better results picking to their strengths myself. Auto assign isn't a "select optimum setup" button.

As to the topic though, I view the extra slots as having two purposes - one, it gives you room to sign a better coach, while keeping your old one until his contract expires, two, it lets you sign a young coach or two in an area you struggle to find super-good coaches for and pray he'll improve to a level where he's actually extremely good (unfortunately, there's no in-game way to tell if a coach might improve)

Its really easy to find 3.5 - 4 star coaches for like 500 p/w.

Auto assigning doesn't seem to be the most efficient way of using your coaches.

I can usually gain half a star or more here and there by tweaking it afterwards, especially in Strength and Aerobic.
