    You can get an 18yo 4* for $6M and 5-15T in the market, so this only saves you the cash, but costs a bit more token-wise. Its all up to you if you want to use the tokens. for 50T you can get a 6* scout with an SA.

    Determine your needs and then evaluate which path you want to follow.
    but the ones on market could mean bidding wars as well...especially a new season is about to start hahaa so I might be better off with my youth products (and they will love the club a bit more since they are from the system, just saying :P )

    This is one aspect that I would really like to see change. 2/3 of your season tokens to pay for the player you supposedly developed in-house in your youth program? That's ridiculous.

    I am level 3 manager.. Quick question.. how do I know which teenager on the list would be a fast trainer... does a higher market value indicate a higher training rate

    At least you guys received your players. Last season after waiting all those days for the youth players to show up.... nothing. I didn't realize you needed to have two open slots under the 22-player limit in order to get the youth players. They just never showed up, and there was no message about it or anything. D'oh! Live and learn. Now I'm waiting another 21 days for the next batch...

    So any newbies: make sure you only have 20 players or less on the day your youth players will arrive!

    They will appear in your squad list once they are generated. You can't sign them tho if there are no open slots. But they will be visible.
    There is a pop up notification when you log in the day they are generated and you will also get an email.

    I don't know why you can miss these three indicators.

    NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER buy player for Tokens from player academy. Waste of tokens, waste of green packs (to train him up) waste of your time. Sign cheaper one and sell him straight away. There is no other use of these guys. end of story

    If someone ever found themselves buying cash for tokens they might've wished they signed an academy player - I signed 1 as an experiment last year and I got more for him than if I had bought cash. (It wasn't intentional I was just 'seeing what and academy player was like'). Could've been a 1 off, might be the norm, maybe different at lvl 2...... I don't know. The story continues.

    Well fair enough, everyone's entitled to their opinion though. It's not a fact that they aren't ever worth the tokens. I tend to see if I need that position, if they are significantly better than my current substitute/reserve for that position, if there are many similar players on the market who I can get for fewer tokens and if I have enough tokens. Often I don't sign them. But I wouldn't say that you should never sign them.
