Hi. I just finished the league season, now have to wait 23 days to play cup final. what does everybody do with their players in the interim. Keep training, give a week, or so, off, etc?

TIA

Personally I would book one or maybe two friendlies between my main squad and my reserves/U19s to keep match fitness up.

Sorry to sound dumb but can you actually give your team a week off?

I agree with others who said book a few friendlies. If you're a club that's lacking in finances, book a couple of money making friendlies. Otherwise, make the friendlies against your reserves and youths. Either way, I'd do my best to keep the side fit for those 23 days. Definitely keep the training going.

That's a dilemma I've had a few times. Friendlies is the answer, but don't go getting keys injured though! It's tough!

Find a rubbish amateur side
Arrange a friendly at home
Smash them to oblivion
Form goes up, happiness goes up, I get to see lots of goals, etc. etc. etc.

Players get complacent. Team plays like Smurfs in final. Get very angry.

On the calendar bar at the top, there's a drop down menu on the current day that gives you an option to rest all players.

Or you could multi select the players and do it that way.

My last match was April 23. I can arrange friendlies from April 26-29, then all dates from then to May 17, the date of the cup match are ghosted out, "date unavailable".

I play 2 friendlies against my "reserves" (home and away) with the second being a week before the final. The "reserves" would actually be all first team squad members as would the first team. Best over the two gets in... :)
