    Unhappy Is my team too young?

    My team is based on young players. I always tend to buy the youngest players in the auction. I don't know why, that's my philosophy, I like that.
    In the league, I have the best team (quality). The problem is, my team is struggling so bad. Last season I finished second and now I'm 5 points behind the leader. I watch almost every match and use formations which are recommended against my opponents formations. My opponents almost never watch their matches and that's just not fair. I put so much effort in my team unlike them and I never get rewarded for that. I don't know what to do, what do you guys think is the problem? Should i buy some older and experienced players? Help me out.

    It depend on players, they can be 6,7 stars and play worst then 4,5 stars, look on their rating and change them.

    Don`t think so, with 21 players in squad my ave age is 20, the oldest is 22, ave team quality 42.0, 4 star with improvement to come for second half of season

    i`m also looking in the long run i have these players for 6/7 seasons and so i won`t need to dabble in transfer market unless a cracker turns up so i`ll be saving money every season.

    EDIT; MOST IMPORTANT I`LL ALSO BE SAVING TOKENS

    I believe you re into the right direction, this is what I also did 4-5 seasons ago,(average age is around 22 atm) team had troubles in league ( rank 2 x4 consecutive times) but after this it started to get easier and trophies started to roll in because in my opinion my youth got experienced by the time.

    click link on my sig name for more details, I believe you re into the big business my friend, just a lil more and it will start to pay off!

    ps: with the addition of 2 scout players (22 years old max) you will rock your league. Not any scouts, the ones you rly need to upgrade your quality in key positions.

    Why 4 stars? For me my team is all 5 stars with the goalie 6star, 1DC 6 star, 1 DMC 6 star, 1 MC 6 star and AMC 6 star. Thats called the spine of the team. All football teams build their squad around the spine. You need to figure what formation you use and who are the most important players. For me I chose AMC over ST because I like to exploid the hole to pull defenders out of position and he's averaging 1G+1A per game. My DC's are all with Arial Abilities to defend corners, FBs both with Wall Defend to defend freekicks. I have playmaker but don't use him much because all the focus I put on the AMC. If you play 2 DMC, I suggest one of them is a playmaker or else leave that job to a MC. I also like to pack my midfield always and play with 1 ST to keep possession. Age has no factor in your case, take some fun time to think of what players are needed to play your philosophy of football. Lastly no formation wins against any formation guaranteed, they are guides for you to understand the game engine. For example I got beaten by a weaker team with 4-4-2 formation against my 4-5-1 V shape. Now if you look at How to win against formation i'm supposed to win right. Now I think about it my DMC should of turned to AMC to freely attack rather than freely defend. I'm not saying that thread is wrong but I have different philosophy. Since you have best quality in the league, you don't need to change formation to beat your opponents, it should be the other way around. Since you watch all the games and they don't, keep all you starting formations the same and during the game tweak it to find space and gaps. If by near the end of the game you winning by a big margin put your players back in the starting positions so your opponents can't review your past tactics. In order to do this perfectly your players should atleast be able to play 2 positions each but not the same. example 2 DCs one should be DC/DR, 1 is DC/DCM so same to the rest of players so then you could freely turn your starting 11 into a different formation from neutral to attack or defend without using subs. Just my 2cents, hope you do well with your youngsters and get some silverwares.
