    yep 18 to 24 (max ) are good as they are fast trainer`s but to be honest i normally let token one`s go as i can better in market for less and sign non token to train but not play to sell on first day of season as i love bidding wars

    18 is 3rd best, 21T is better and 24T is the best, but some here will say that it is only a guideline that the highest token players are the fastest trainers.

    Before you buy one of the youth players, always go to the transfer list and see if you can get an 18yo of that position and try to get the most expensive for less tokens than the youth would cost you, in this case 18T. If you can pick up the player on the transfer list for less than 18T then dont bother buying your youth, unless you dont have the money to buy it, then its a trade-off = youth for 18T and no money paid, or youth from auction for 5-10T and mucho $$$ paid. If you have the $$$, its better to buy from the auction list.

    Well I can't decide what to do . the player in question is level 41 DR ... my main DR is level 51 age 24 but he can also player DMR.

    My only other DR is level 35 age 21 , he can also play DC , but I have plenty of better players in DC. I'm lacking another DR player , but don't know if he's worth it

    so the new DR is 3 or 4*?

    Again, if you can find an equal on the Auction list, then try that first, because 18T is a lot to waste on a 3/4* player when you might pick up a 4/5* player for 5-10T

    It's always a difficult decision to make. Depending on what level you are, money may be a factor too. At least the market value of the youth players tend to be somewhat equal to what a bank investment would get you for the same amount of tokens. So it's often worth it to sign the player and see if you will use him or sell him afterwards. The mental aspect of releasing your youth player and having someone else sign him as a free transfer is also slightly upsetting.
    18-24 tokens is a big chunk if you only have 35 tokens per season income though, so nobody can make this choice easier for you I'm afraid.

    If you're not a power trainer don't bother with him. It'll do you 1 or 2 seasons more than a regular 5* player from the transfer list, and, with the tokens it costs you can easly buy 4 or 5 5* players.

    If you are a power trainer, and are looking for fast trainers, then they are not cheap but they are granted and train very fast, so you'll be able to keep them at top levels for several seasons.

    Sorry I should have said .. im a level 6 manager .. player in question is 4 star level 41

    I'm just starting to do the whoel power train thing with a young goalie I got. Doing more than one player seems impossible tho unless you have green token coming from your behind lol

    For me they are always good buys.
    My first one is still in the Team, plays as MC and is average is 0,5 goals/game witch for a player in His position is very good.
    The second, got injured 4 times, 3 in the same season, i put it on sale, and end in a bid war, so a goo income to me.
    The third is now my 2nd GK, and he is playing very well, Everytime i need him.
    Still waiting for them this season, just need to upgrade the youth academy in the right time, to get them earlier in the season.

    you can do your own math. Level 41, he is at least 46 points away from level 45 (5*). That means, W/O power training at best, he'll be just getting there at season's end. Next season you'll start again from low 4* and hopefully he'll be back at 5* at season's end, if you play him a lot, and same for the 3rd season. There onwards, forget, he'll never be back at 5* W/O power trainning.

    Let's say you can buy now a high 5* player for, let's say 5 tokens. Most likely he'll be 6* or just, by season's end.
    Next season you'll have a 5* player for all season. next season you buy another high 5* for more 10 tokens (you had to work ahrd on this one), so third season, you have another 5* player for same spot, and with some luck, he'll do you the following season also with 5 star. So you have a 5* player for a full 4 seasons spending less than the youth's cost.
