    What age is too old?

    I've had great success with my team, but now some of them are getting on. I am investing in some youth. What age is too old in top eleven?

    I'll keep decent people until 24 yrs old. Exceptional people will stay on my team until they retire.

    Age is not as important as it has been. I would say, as long as he can keep up keep him.

    I have several 30 years or near players, that is dominating still

    I keep all players until their performance drops. A common mistake is going too young and ending up with too many under performing young players

    It's good to have a mixture. I agree with earlier comments about having too many under-performing young players. I think you need a good balance of age and youth.

    Brilliant question
    I have always been selling my players a bit young....around 23-24.
    I tend to go by the star ratings and since young players grow faster, my team tends to be full of 18-21 year olds.
    However, I do agree there are quite a few times they underperform, esp in finals and decider matches.
    Would appreciate if some of the more experienced folks could advice whether:
    1. There are certain areas of team, eg. defence, where aged players are better than young players even when the young one is a star better.
    2. How to decide between whether weather to go for a young player who will progress more with lesser greens OR keep an experienced veteran (may not be a single golden formula...just experiences are good)

    I always like to have a mixtured squad. Older players bring experience to the table which is always necessary for the better development of younger players.

    I find it extremely important especially in defence. Something like Milan of the good ol' days when they had all these extremely experienced players in the defence.

    I've always found that an old wise head in midfield helps...
    Any formation or tactics advice given is based purely on experience with my teams...
