New team selection

Just thought I would give you another preview like I did in another post for the new scouting upgrade. This time it is the new team selection page.

As you can probably see, there are major improvements to this particular page on the site. The first is that you can select players for other positions than their own. Even playing goalkeepers up front if you so wish. With the current positions, this probably sounds quite limited but when I bring further positions into the game it will give more scope to set your team up as you wish. Although extra positions probably won't be brought in until the new ratings are being used much more.

The 2nd thing you may notice is the ability so select 3 substitutes who will come on if your players get injured only in the first place. In the future I will give the ability to give instructions as to when certain changes should occur but to begin with it will just be injuries. I'm sure you'll agree that this is a step in the right direction.

Finally, you will have the captain selection only containing selected players and the formation will be updated as and when you make selections. I, personally, think it will be a far better way of selecting a team than the current one.

It won't be implemented for a little while but just thought you may want to see I am making progress.


  1. You should be able to select upto 5 subs and of course, only 3 of those 5 can be used.

  2. will be great to have subs on the bench as this might stop playing dropping in ratings and fitness

  3. Oldish post by Wayne I know, but only just found this.

    This would be great and make it feel much more realistic. Currently it does feel like there is a limited impact you can have as a manger after selecting the team, it is like we are banned from the dugout. Eventually being able to select subs to come on if the defict or lead reaches certain values would be great.

  4. That is exactly where I want to go with it. I know I have done little for a while but I need to get the new youth academy sorted and then the new ratings can be implemented finally so I can add all this extra functionality.
