Just bought a bunch of new players as my starting squad was awful. Tried to retire my starting squad (because otherwise I have training penalties and also have to pay extra wages) and get told
"You cannot retire this player as the player must remain in your squad for at least 7 days".

Does this mean just have to accept the training penalties and cost of wages?

Also, why? I just checked the rules and it isn't explained/mentioned

It is a glitch, I have changed those players so you can fire those that you don't need

Thank you :)

There still appears to be a difference between firing players I started with and players I bought. (I just tested). Is that also a glitch, or is that a hidden rule? (That you can't retire someone you've just bought?)

No reason you should know where to look so I found it so you can read it:

Basically it forces financial responsibility on users who who buy older players to win crucial games and then get rid of them so they didn't have to pay wages.

Thank you. If I have done maths correctly (which is dubious because I might have missed some income or outgoing streams) I think I'm gonna be in debt when I have to pay wages, and there's no way for me to avoid this without retiring players (which I can't do). I'd be happy to retire them before they play any games which would avoid the thing this rule meant to avoid (in fact I tried to, that's how I found out the problem).

I guess I suggest this is put in the game rules - because the cost of buying players is wildly misleading if it claims I can buy a player for 1k (which I have done a lot of, without worrying about quality as long as it upgraded my current team) if each player *actually* costs "1k + wages". 1k is cheap, the wages are not.

Incidentally the link you sent is also incorrect: the game is season 53 so "After 2 seasons when we get to EOS51 they will be hard caps, which means if you have 25 players in a squad you will not be able to purchase a player relevant to the squad over the limit" hasn't happened (because I went *way* over that before taking stock and trying to prune/retire excess players). I'm not sure if that's a bug or a choice.

The link's title is EOS49.

I'm kinda shocked that a year has gone by so fast.

:lol: time happens like that

No I meant that the 2 seasons/season 51 has already happened before I arrived, so that fact I can buy more then 25 players in season 53 (this season) is a bug or a rule change.

Where? I searched for rehire (and fire as it used to be called years ago) before asking on the forums - and I just checked now under transfer market and neither word is mentioned.

The closest thing I found is "If you have previously bought a player and want to relist him then you must wait 7 days before you can do so" but that's not relevant because I'm buying players for 1k - I'm gonna fire them, not resell them.

Hello. Quick question: where do you see your club's overall win/loss record?

Thanks in advance.

Is it possible to sort players by squad number in the squad page (or elsewhere)?

For example, if you want to sort them out in order to display the playing XI first, using the numbers.
