    Best time to set final (T)11 players

    Not sure if lesson learnt today.
    Accepted a new friend, MERTMONK, yesterday, who is active and lies 2 on table. Today, 2 hours before my semi cup game and half an hour after I had set my final team, I see I am in half time, playing a friendly.

    My question is when is the best time to set your final selection, when importan(BIG)t games are to be played. Do you wait to the last 10 minutes or
    Are you selective to the friends you choose?

    Why would you add friends who are in your league? that is just begging for friendlies at the times of you never wanting them!

    If you plan on doing that, set your eleven players not being played in the BIG game and change them 6-7 mins before the BIG game. that gives you 3-4 mins to make any changes and add any boosters.

    I only add friends from this forum and only if they agree not to friendly. I have only had one that has gone back on that deal and they were quickly removed.

    I have too many friends on my main fb account, but that cant be helped, but in my other accounts that are only for this game, I only have enough friends to guarantee that I get one of every pack every day. Why should one need more?

    This. I don't add people in my league, CL or Cup. I don't even add people on my level. I always add teams of a lower level so they're less likely to play a friendly with me.

    As for the team, I usually keep it for the last few hours and change it.

    I always find it funny when managers in my cup, CL or league try to add me. I just laugh and leave it there. They just want to friend me so they can see my schedule and friendly me or put a game close to another game I have. Its just a disaster waiting to happen.

    Thanks for replies. Learning all the time

    Is it the beginners who tend to arrange unsolicited friendlies or does it happen through all levels.
    Also I am sure managers with a full schedule ( league and cups) do not not have time to play friendlies, unless they have sufficient boosters to recover strength and injuries.

    it depends on the person. I have some friends that I see play several friendlies daily, and I am sure it is between him and his other account.

    I think it happens on the lower levels as one tends to get a bit gunshy once it happens a few times. You usually learn not to friend people as you get higher in the game.

    Which would be the lesser of two evils
    Unwanted friendly match before an important game?
    Injuries during any friendly match?
