That is true, has to be said.

And nothing to do with knowing any offer of yours would be blown out of the water the moment it was clear offers were being accepted :wink: :lol:


But seriously, if a team finding a player like this is less than a star team the sensible thing to do is to Swap/Cash in on them as frankly one player will ultimately make little difference to results but a few players could make the difference.

That being said, I think Lee has it right to ignore the actual better route and just keep him as much more fun watching the player play for him, even though his team would be better off offloading him.

Again, well done on the find and good luck :D

All depends how you want to play the game I guess??

I’ve brought through youth players, not this good, at several of my teams, and it’s really nice to get them into the first team and playing games.

I’ve got one at New Town who will defo get game time as an 18 year old.

I’ve also got an absolute star at Glenfield, found him as a 16 year old, but didn’t even debate selling him/swapping him, even though Glenfield don’t have the strongest first team squad. I want to bring him through and get him playing and be the backbone of the side for the future.

Castlebay have two class acts as well, just a little slow that’s all, but they should be well up towards the top of the youth league with those two playing in the team, and again, they will be in the first team next year, no problem.

Long term, for me, it’s the nicer option.

It is the more personal fun option as I stated above.

However, the best option for a team that is short in areas is to Cash in on a player via Swap ideally as ultimately multiple players will be more useful than one, that is just a statement of fact as no one player has that big an effect.

The reality is success is more easily achieved by cashing in on a find like this one that can be swapped for multiple great players.

However, keeping him is far more fun for most managers, completely agree John. It's the trade off of success v fun, you can still get success with the fun route but it is harder although both routes require getting the tactics to a greater or lesser extent right :D

In fact, the reality is tactics will trump player skills anyway so better than either option is just getting the tactics right. The best teams aren't successful, the best tactics are. :)

Yeah you’ve said that to me before actually Rich, and it’s for that reason that I’d rather keep players like this. Tactics much more important anyway so just have fun and get a very satisfying experience when decisions you make go right, and your youth find scores the goal to get promoted when he is 22 years old, and takes you to the Premier Division!

We can but dream!

When ever I find a 16yr old Gem I will always test the water with Swap offers but totally understand the pleasure in training some up
