The purpose of this section is to catalog training notes by type. There are basically eight types of training notes:
- Completed training notes
- Anniversary notes
- Skill pop-up notes
- Talent Search notes
- Behaviour notes
- Training problem notes
- Unusually good game notes
- Specialty notification
Completed training notes
A completed training note means that a player has reached his potential and will not see any more skill advances as part of the youth squad. You should strongly consider promoting the player to the senior squad.
- player_name is working hard in the practice sessions, but he just doesn't seem to get much out of it. You need to decide if he should join the senior squad, or maybe tell him to start thinking about another career than football…
- player_name claims the youth academy is holding him back! To be honest, I think he may be right…
A aniversary note means that the player have his birthday in the week of training:
- player_name had his birthday this week, and his mother came over with a really tasty birthday cake for the clubhouse. What a nice gesture.
- player_name wanted me to ask you if he could have a senior team contract for his birthday. I'm not sure if he was being serious or whether he was trying to make me look silly.
- On a sidenote, it was player_name's birthday this week. Time sure flies.
- It was player_name's birthday this week! The boys had a party, I made sure there was no alcohol involved of course.
- player_name was in a great mood this week, I heard he had his birthday recently.
- player_name had his birthday this week. Remember we can't keep the kids on the squad once they've turned 19 years old.
Skill pop-up notes
You receive a skill pop-up note from a player that pop a single skill. For instance, if a player pops from weak to inadequate, a training note is received.
- player_name is improving his Playmaking ability, I think the current training regime is worthwhile in his case.
- player_name is improving his Passing ability, I think the current training regime is worthwhile in his case.
- player_name is an ambitious young boy, and I'm happy to say it is paying off. Especially with his Playmaking ability, which has improved with training.
- This week I can report that several players have improved their capabilities through training. A special mention for player_name, who has worked well on his Passing skills.
- This week I noticed that player_name has improved his Defending ability.
- player_name keeps developing, his Defending ability is now better.
- player_name had a good week, his Set pieces has really improved lately.
Talent search notes
A talent search note is produced when you find a suitable training position for your player, or if the player's position is not adequate to his skills prospects.
- I'm starting to realize that player_name is a diamond in the rough! Train him well and he will be your most valuable young player.
- Try to find the right spot on the team for player_name, there is a lot of football in that kid.
- Some good news about player_name, he is responding well to the Passing training sessions.
- player_name has responded well to the Playmaking sessions we have organized this week. It's good to know our work has had an effect.
- Don't change the Playmaking training for player_name, it sure seems to be paying off at the moment!
- I wouldn't say player_name is necessarily much of a player today, but in contrast to some of the other boys, he certainly has potential for improvement.
- Mark my words, it would be a good thing to give player_name some Set pieces training before it's too late.
- player_name is undeveloped, but it could be worth giving him special attention in the training sessions.
A Behaviour note normally is about a specific problem or player caracteristic. A very nervous or calm player can produce a Behaviour notes. Sometimes, specialties can be revealed by Behaviour notes.
- player_name has a very long fuse, never really gets in a fight.
- player_name has a very rough attitude, both on and off the pitch. That could get him into trouble.
- You never see player_name taking a dive on the field. You've got to respect the kid for that.
- player_name is such a fine young boy, never gives us any headaches in training. Loves his mother, too.
Training problem notes
A training problem notes normally means that a player cannot receive your actual training, or another training is more suitable.
- When I see player_name on the practice ground, I can't shake the feeling that he really wants to train Keeper instead.
- The current training is not the optimal one for player_name, what he really needs is to practice Keeper.
- It's always OK for a player to hone multiple skills, but in the case of player_name it's obvious that a focus on Keeper sessions would be very productive.
- Feel free to let your boys try different positions, but I really think you should try giving player_name some Keeper training, too.
Unusually good game notes
A unusually good game note is produced every time a player performance on a specific game is better for no specific reasons:
- I'm sure you noticed that player_name had an unusually good game this week. Let's hope he can learn how to play more consistently at that level.
- I liked the way player_name gave his everything in our last game. I hope to see him like that again sometime soon.
- Did you see player_name in this week's game? He did really well, given his capacity.
- player_name had a charmed game this week, I haven't seen him play that well before.
- player_name had a great game this week, don't forget to mention that to him.
- I hope you saw player_name play this week, he did one of his best performances in the team so far.
- In this week's game, player_name played close to his potential. Very well done!
