Hey everyone, I think in order to improve the personalisation and lets managers to create the relationships with the squad, it'd be nice to have different types of conversations with our squad. Let me give some examples: - Before starting each season, I'd like to have a chat with the star player of my squad to say him: "You will be the brain of the team, we need you to perform well in order to reach our targets". - For a wonderkid, "I have huge confidence in your potential, show your ability when you have the chance." - For an experienced player, "The team need your leadership, I believe youngsters can learn a lot from you. Take them under your wings." - For the club icons when they are in their last terms of playing career, "You are one of the icons of the club, I want you to continue your career as a coach/scout/assistant manager when you hang up your boots". - For the players who are unhappy with the high training workload (as - for the best of my knowledge - there is no way to resolve their unhappiness except changing their training routine), "All of your hard work will let you be a first team regular/have a chance in the first team". That would give a result through the personality of the player and the relationship between the manager and the player. All of these conversations obviously affect the players' morale depending on their personalities, their short & long term plans, and their relationships with the manager & club. Of course, the conversations can be detailed and varied.
Hi This might be the wrong subforum, but since the answers might affect my tactics and training I decided to post here. Feel free to move the subject. I started my career in Denmark but now find myself in Udinese in Italy on my 5th season. Upon arrival the U20 was swamped with players too old for U20 football and most of the players (or about 50%) was out on loan. What was left was quite an unbalanced and untalented team. The U18 hat talents but the squad was massively crowded. It took me a couple of seasons of offloading never-gonna-make-it U20 players and promoting U18 to U20. Still had a way too big U18 squad though - 40+ players. I watched some of the other Serie A clubs' U18 squads, and they tend to have only around 20+ players in their U18 squad and that's what I'm aiming for now as well. So do you just offload players if you suspect they don't stand a chance of becoming top league players? Also, I've upgraded both youth development and junior coaching so I like to just sign all youth prospects in march. Last march I had a low intake - probably due to an already too large squad.
