Yea for sure. Sounds like we’ve had pretty similar experiences. I had a lot of success in the early days with youths. Have won the PC and T20 div 1 titles but in all these FTP seasons, since season 1, the elusive SOD 1.1 title has always been out of my grasp lol.

I had rubbish pulls consistently for seasons so did the same thing. Ignored the youth development and focused on seniors. That combined with not winning any thing senior wise caused a pretty steady descent, and left me with no money. I think you’ve got to be pretty ruthless too, when it comes to selling players. I tend to hold onto players longer than I should to make sure they become “club legends” and get their stats up, rather than sell the odd one at mid-high 20’s for mac value. Too much emotional investment :lol:

Yeah for sure. And you also want to use the guy for his peak. The trouble is, at their top (28-30) the wage bill is off the chains. Especially if you have 8+ guys in that range which you need to win div 1.

I wonder if the new owners are looking at changing up this section of the game. It's basically a bad thing to have senior nats for me, the payment barely covers wages for the week and are missing every 3 weeks, so you need a bigger squad. Hard to sustain. Love the change to 16yo youth pull only rules.

Yea, I'm not really a huge fan of how it currently works. You pretty much have to win every season in order to maintain a good solid lineup. Where as you can run your seniors to the ground, and run a youth academy and you can basically stockpile half a mil every year doing that. Seems a bit outrageous.

On another note, SOD 2.2 has kicked off to a great start, with me losing two from two (this is with keeping my "stronger" team)

I played against 3 bowlers who had wages under $5,500 each, yet took 6 wickets between them :lol: :lol: :lol:

My batsmen cost me that one. My lineup isn't super stacked any more, but all out for 122 against a team with bowlers mostly 1/4 of the wages of my batsmen?

Looking forward to tomorrow's game. Myself v Heff - it's been a while between matches. Last time was 07 Jun 2018, when we were both in Div1. Now we meet again in 2020, both in Div2.

Probably one of my most fun rivalries (challenging, because I usually get spanked).

After choking 2 seasons ago I've finally completed the set of Youth titles :party

That’s a nice effort Muff, 12/0, about time someone stopped the Slack Caps run of consecutive titles!

Lol... yeah I've won a few I probably shouldn't have... a lot depends on who you play in the international windows.
