    New To Top Eleven

    Hi, I'm new to Top Eleven and on my 2nd season (when i joined i only played 1 game on season 1). I am unbeaten in my league and doing really well with the team in which i built through buying scout players. While reading this page though i have read some really good comments from experienced managers and basically all i would like is if someone would take time to share some of their knowledge and their best ways to develop and train their team to the best of their abilities. It would be a huge help. Thankyou for taking the time to read my post.

    Welcome! Your team should destroy anything you see in League 2 and probably League 3 for that matter, so I wouldn't worry too much about spending more atm.

    Some quick advice, keep your condition in the green and try to get a few more subs ... this game can be notorious for injuries.

    Welcome JLP, best way is squad rotation for me, choose which game is more important to you as a manager ,play your strongest side only when needed .

    A lot of people have quite literally two starting 11's.

    I personally have a squad of 18-19 players and rotate when I need to or if i'm playing an opponent I don't need a full strength team to beat. It's one of the challenges of T11, especially if you're not a token buyer.

    Welcome, as Haroon stated, lots of managers do play split squads, good luck and don't get frustrated when you lose games that leave you scratching your head, that is also VERY common here along with injuries that will sometimes cripple your squad haha.
