Re: Squad opinion in very competitive gameworld
Your squad seems quite good at first glance although you could make some improvements.
GK: The first thing you should do is transfer list your goalkeeper, having a goalkeeper with a rating over 90 will greatly improve your squad defensively. Consider getting someone like Diego lopez-91-Ac Milan, or Salvatori Sirigu-91-PSG, or Gianuigi buffon-94-Juventus. All will cost around £10 million and are over 30 years old but a good goalkeeper will benefit your team hugely.
CB/RB/LB: Next, depending on your formation there are different types of players you could consider getting for your back line. I normally play 3 at the back and so would recommend some younger defenders with lots of potential: I would recommend Ricardo Rodriguez-90-Wolfsburg age:22 value: about 14 million (LB), also Alberto Moreno-89-Liverpool age:22 value:9.5 million (LB) or Phil Jones-89-Manchester United age:22 value: 8.5 million (CB/RB) or Fabian Schar-88-FC Basel age:22 value: 8.7 million (CB). All of these defenders have a good potential and although they are quite expensive you should be able to afford at least 2 or 3 of them ( and you'll only need 3 if you play 3 at the back). Alternatively you could consider bringing in some older more experienced players at a cheaper price foe example Andrea Barzagali-91-Juventus age: 33 Value 8.8 million (CB) or Patrice Evra-91-Juventus age:33 value 5.5 million (LB) or Jeremy Matieu-90-Barcelona age:30 value: 4.5 million (CB) or Christian Maggio-90-Napoli age 32 value 5.4 million (RB). There are more players of similar rating ages and values just use the transfer search feature. I would sell everyone in your defense apart from Juan Bernat if you think he has potential and a place in your squad. However if you need the funds to build a new defense I would allow him to move on. I would try to mix some of the older players and younger players if you start running out of money too as this will balance potential, skill and price.
CM/RM/LM: Your midfield looks good and you seem to have a lot of depth here especially with players of about 87 rating. However, i would sell everyone apart from Esteban Granero because he can play a a variety of positions, Gerrard Deulofeu because of his potential and Marko Arnautovic again because he can play a variety of positions. You could consider buying younger players such as Jack Rodwell-88-Manchester city age:23 value 5.3 million (CM) or someone a bit older like Gary Medel-89-Inter Milan because he can play a variety of positions including CM, CDM, CB and RB. With my formation I normally play an attacking midfielder and so I'd look at bringing in one or two
ST/CF: Your strike force is probably the most important part of the team (if your playing an attacking formation and an attacking style of play like I do) I would try bringing in at least 2 90 rated strikers to make sure you are a good threat up front. If they are available I would try to bring in two back-ups as well, Joel Campbell-87-Arsenal age:22 value 4.8 million and Alvaro Morata-87-Juventus age:21 value 5 million. If you find yourself having to sell most of your strikers to get some funds I would keep Ji Dong-Won, he is young and has potential, (in real life he's played premier league I think). I don't know enough about your other strikers to advise you on whether it's worth selling them or not.
Youth players: I don't know enough about your youth players so I can't really give you any advice about them. Also, i'm not gonna list all of the young players in the world because there ar too many and as you already said they've probably all been snapped up by the other clubs in your game world already However, i can advise you on one player who I think is not on the database yet. Joe Gomez is a 17 year old CB who plays for Charlton (the sickest team in the world) he was a key member of the England under 17's squad in the European championships and played every game. Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton and Newcastle are all interested in this guy so he has a bright future. I would keep looking to see if you can get this guy before everyone else in your league.
Overall your squad is good, has some decent players and very good depth but you should probably try to reshape the squad to improve it overall and give yourself a better group of players to work with.
I hope I helped and I hope it wasn't too long either. If you want any more advice on anything (transfer targets etc) then just message me
