The new [[Youth Academy]] has now been running for more than two seasons. It has proven very popular, but also quite difficult to make sense of and to make the most of. In terms of what kind of players the YA produces, it has been a let-down for many managers - and we can only confirm their suspicion that it has been too hard to create decent players in the Academy. This is mainly due to two factors: The starting values of players born in the Academy system, and the tools that the managers have at their disposal to train and analyse their youth squad.

One a final note, we have also fixed a bug that did not retire youth players when they reached their 19th birthday. This will now be in effect. However, retirement only happens on a birthday, which means players that have already turned 19 may stay on until they turn 20. If you have a player that you like, and that soon turns 19 (or 20), you should consider promoting him to your senior team right away. We are however considering a "softer" system for retiring 19 year olds, so we may make a tweak to his system in the near future.
