As it stands, a player is currently capable to create five squad. This generally means one senior squad and various youth squads or maybe even a reserve squad. Generally, the setup looks like this:
- Senior Squad
- Reserve Squad
- U21 Squad
- U19 Squad
- U17 Squad
Given that the minimum size of a healthy squad would be around 16 players, that means you have 80 players running around the club.
I have neglected the fact that players can feature in more than one team though. A very good youth player might feature in more than one youth team and maybe even in the senior team as well.
Still, as you can see it takes considerably more than 50 players to run a team with a full on youth academy effectively. Please SI, can't you raise the limit, so we don't get punished by poor morale and players rejecting their auto extends, whilst they actually do play enough games and have no realistic reason to complain?
