    ideal amount of plaYERS in your squad

    ok a serious question ( for once) lol

    what is the ideal amount of players in your squad ?? I have a starting 11 and 5 subs ??? I dont need any more at the moment !! consider wages for sitting on the bench CL and Cups etc rotation etc , cover for red cards injuries ????


    your views please !!!!


    oops sorry about the caps lock in the title lol

    22
    Last season I had 6 injured players + few of them healed immediately after injury. I barely managed to have some fresh reserves with 2 matches per day, spent all red and green packs. So much problems for 22 squad, couldn't believe that can happen....
    As I have commented on another thread, 22 players are good because they enable you to use different formations, sub bad form/injured/suspended players, keep important players fresh for important matches.
    I wonder what opponent thinks about my team when he faces full squad of equal/similar quallity players on every position... I'm hard opponent even for token buyers.

    I don't know, there are periods of no or very low number of injuries and periods of every day injuries.
    I had every season 22 players so I can't compare from personal experience.
    Injuries aren't main reason why I have so much players, It is because I like to use various tactics and formations. I like to suprise opponent.
    Maybe I will start using asymetric formations just to annoy opps.

    I have had only 1 injury this season
    really ?
    I had - day 20/28 - 7 in matches and 4 in training. My players always at dark geen bar so except from 1 injury of 6 days the others was < 3 days (but I'm training a lot).
    I use 20 good players from 4* to 6* with rotation (but I'm at low levels so I don't have problems with wages).

    Minimum 16 player and maximum 18 players,because not all the players will play often,and with lower squad,save some money for a good player....YOU dont need to use many formations (against opponen),because the formation doesnt count very much.Choose 4-4-2,4-3-3 or something like that,because you re waisting your time with changing daily formation...The decision is yours...

    I use nordgens to save money, they are good long-term option. Once I buy nordgen, I use him for 3 or more seasons. Before I need to buy new nordgen, I have enough time to earn lot of money through league, cup and CL. Besides that, their price rises fast as well as quallity, so I can still earn on their selling.
    Of course, my squad isn't full of nordgens, but I have enough of them. That is just me, everyone has own strategy of playing this game.

    I have 20 players. I try to have 14 players that are interchangeable in starting 11 without noticing any difference. The others play now and again but usually just cover for suspensions or subs to keep condition up on players I want to play again. And they're usually ex-1st team or panic buys..

    My core 14 players usually comprises players for 4-5-1V + ST, MC and DC/X - although its developed that way rather than being some grand plan.

    22

    22 for formation purposes, the more formations you can play the more wins you will have, simple.

    There is a price to be paid for a 22 player roster, but the advantages in injuries, flexibility and durability is worth it.
