There's another reason this wouldn't work very well imo. When you select a player with the current method, he switches sides, from the 'unselected' group to the selected group. It makes it really easy to look at and sort through the remaining unselected players. If you did it all off the squad list, when you select a player, he won't move anywhere, so when looking for the next player to pick, you'll be looking through the already-picked players too.

I agree that visually it's a bit cluttered, but I actually find it really easy to use. Just sort them at the top and choose them that way.

You can't really do everything with one though. I did do it that way at first and it was really confusing I thought. This way is messier but easier to use ... imo.

It's only what we're all thinking now :wink:

As you say it will take a bit of getting used to, just a lot of extras that we're not used to yet, some will use them some won't.
From Glynn's point of view he's got to give people the choice and it's up to us to use/not use as we see fit

Well you do have to use the line-up tables, it's the only way to select your squad. But yeah, how you make the selections is up to you I suppose. You could just write them down on paper after scanning through the squad list and then go down and pick the ones you want. Or more commonly, you kinda know the squad you want in your head anyway. It's extra confusing right now because you don't know any of those players.

Not sure how far you have got with it but my youth game attendance was nearly 20,000 which seems too high, especially as 7k less watched my first team away in cup!!

Can these be tweaked to be more in line with likely attendances?

In the current client, the picked and unpicked players are listed under each other. If you have a big squad the list has a scroll. I think this display method is quite good if it would allow all the days columns to be displayed?

Would it be possible to have league tables compressed automatically as default rather than the full expanded info, so it looks simpler?

The problem is, there are far more players available now and putting them above/below won't fit on to even the biggest screen. You'll be scrolling like a madman. Though in a sense I suppose that might work because you'd click a player and he'd just disappear to the list below... it's not like you need to see him there right away, you'd know where he's gone. As you're getting closer to completing the squad you can pop down, have a look how it's looking, pop back up again. I suppose that might work and it would certainly be prettier.

The attendances aren't done at all, those are just random numbers :)

Re : the compressing. I'll have it save your preferences, either for each team or for your entire user profile. Probably the latter, depending on what people want.

I'll think about it, for now, it works and I actually like it (I just hate the way it looks).

Just a quickie, how about a save button, not keen on just exiting have to keep going back to check, or is that just my insecurities (find myself doing this when going out early for work :oops: )

It's you. The changes are saved in real time as you do them so a save button is redundant.
