Personally, if your trainees that are stopping these two from getting a place aren't homegrown, I'd flog 'em off, ready or not.
Agreed - but my first XI is now wholly homegrown (other than goalies). I always try and find a spot for my good 'uns, but I'm just full.
I was in 4th playing 5th away from home. Last season I won one, drew one (away fixture) so I thought this could be a six-pointer game. However opponent is clearly embarking on a rebuild given his volume of transfers recently, so I sent out the 2nd XI on a PIC.
Final result 3-0 win.
First human opponent of the season, at home. Went PIC, and won 3-1.
Next week is the other human opponent - level with me on 15 points, away from home. Key game etc...
