Reserve Team/U18 Team

10 posts in this topic

Just about 95% of the players there are useless, and I really want to get rid of them, but if I get rid of them, there won't be a reserve or a U18 team, will that cause any problems for me?

Extra question:- Why do players that are available for reserve team (but not actually in it), don't get in formation when done automatically?

Well you could try to loan out the the players so they will still be playing football. Newcastle (I believe) scrapped their reserves when Keegan was in charge and I read somewhere that Harry Redknap has got rid of the reserves this season.

If you do get rid of them just make sure to loan them out so the half decent ones actually get some football and progress.

I know there is a option to scrap your reserve/u18 teams at the beginning of each season.does that just mean they don't play matches or are all the players released?

It means that you won't be entered into the Youth or Reserves leagues, however you can still field a Youth or Reserve team, even arrange friendlies for them. Depending on my roster, I'm tempted to play my youths on my reserves team (scrapping the youth team). Or just concentrate on youth development up to age 21, not fielding a reserves team of over 21 players destined for nothing. Curious about peoples' experiences who have done this...

Ship 'em out. The additional games are useful for your youngsters. Dead wood should really not hang around. Loan them out to rubbish feeder clubs if necessary.

I think it's worth keeping them so the few promising youngsters (your 5%) can play in a U18s team.

Also, you are unlikely to be able to sell the useless players so your only option would be to pay a lump sum to release them from their contract. It makes more sense just to keep them until their contract expires.

I have a question???? Will it be possible to watch all reserve games in fm 2010?

It would depend when the games are played - you won't be able to watch a match if it is scheduled on the same day as a first team game.

yes you can watch your reserves, or control them.

If you opted to be in a reserve/U19 league and you'll emptied out your squad, or have too few, the AI will fill the spaces up with greys. It doesn't matte rif they lose all their games since the board or 1st team squad don't care. I start off with full reserve/U19 squads but they get loaned out and depleted, or the U19's grow up and have to move to the reserves. I'll end up with 2 or 3 U19s. It's no problem.
