    How to rebuild a cheap, old and cash strapped team?

    One of my friends has a team if virtually no cash, no young player and no resale value for his level?
    What would be a realistic route of progression without real money injection or hard farming?

    Hmmm quite a challenge. Sell the unwanted low Q players to build up cash and avoid money loss in player Wages. Sign the whole season contract of Sponsorship to get some quick cash. Collect tokens for 2-3 days, use them to sign free agents and sell them. Use cash to buy a 3* or 4* young player close to next star. Train him to 1SP from next star and wait for a good neg bid or else put him on market and expect a bidding war....


    Should Kaka' have been selected for Brazil's WC squad?

    you could turn around any team but you might have to tank for a couple of seasons. So if its something your thinking of doing ask yourself could you be arsed tanking 3 times???

    He has not been promoted for 2 seasons in a row....that I know of.
    All players are low valued compared to league standards at this stage.

    Basically Free Agents wold be the best way, have him look for higher value FAs that can be resold or play on the team.
    Buying older players that are good Q, rather that expensive youngsters.
    Concentrate on staying in Cup as long as possible to gain the $$ from that Competition.
    Expressed above is my own opinion. Your results may vary.

    Free agents are 32 33 yrs. no one really bids for them and also tokens cannot really be farmed.
    But an option.

    I've been getting those videos you watch three to get a Token... I am so lucky!

    But on the 35T League team, no farming... just patience. LOTS of patience.. There are two current guys on that team that were got as FAs seasons ago. The younger FAs are generally released youth from above so they don't show up as often, but they *do* exist.

    Also I wouldn't be afraid of buying older guys that have good ratings / attributes even if you know you will only have them a season or two, it is that important to play in Cup to build $ he'll need enough players.

    Young Free agents go for +3bar at level 7. Maybe 8-10 times a season. Manyyyyyyy bidders. I know, cos that is an additional income steamy for me. Not a secure option ..cannot afford to waste tokens competing against income hunters, like me.

    sell your fans, rent your stadium to a demolition derby, hire privateers to pillage opponents?

    sell your players and hope that emergency replacement thing kicks in, take away win bonus (they dont do anything IMHO), play friendlies

    It'll be hard for him to make $ otherwise. It'll take some patience for sure.

    Yes, take away win bonus. I have it off on my 35t team and haven't noticed much difference (but then they have never got it, so I dunno what sort of hit the morale would take if it gets removed when they did have it)

    Totally convoluted sentence that but I hope it makes sense.
