    Players getting older

    What is your experience as players are aging?

    Here's what happened to Zlatan in my save file.



    After that poor season with Man Utd he signed for Charlton!

    Some players can keep going at a very high level until very old (in footie terms anyway )

    Evra is a good example, on the ODB Gattuso was my best example, had him til he was 40 once and he would still give good performances, although able to do it less times due to longer recovery time.

    Generally I have already shipped them on by then, unless i think they will be a good coach

    I had Buffon starting in Serie A until he was about 44 in one save. You could see his avg. rating slowly declining each season but he was still above average even by the end.

    Physical attributes start to drop off after 32
    By 34 very few can last more than 60 minutes

    Once stamina goes into single digits you've either got a player that lasts til halftime or is only useful for last half an hour

    Also depends on your level. Zlatan with stamina 7-9 would tear up a 2nd or 3rd tier

    One question about old players (I was able to use Totti with 9 stamina - or less - to play full games and end a season with 45 starts with 16 goals - 9 penalties... - and 11 assists - ODB with the tapani patch): what influences their decline in stats? And what can you do to help the players being "good" even when they are old?

    I'm asking this cause, in that game, Nesta is too old but keeps the decisions at 20 and Totti saw it going down (he in almost 38 in my game). That's just an example, as Totti aged well until now but, all of a sudden he dropped points is almost every attribute... (he made the worst season since I started my game but, at the end he stepped up because I was finally able to get the team playing well).

    As time passes, and the players grow older?

    I mean, from the second season... exactly like zlatan in pic above. Also Buffon. Great players over 34/35 in the starting season

    In my experience, not all the oldies are poor once they reached 34/35. What i want to emphasize is that this not exactly correct for GK. I got Casilas, and his good at his 39

    Yeah, not every player is useless at 35. For example Alaba in my game:


    Stamina 19!

    He managed to get 21 assists last season while playing for ManUtd. And ManUtd were 5th in the Premier League.
    (It's a shame i didn't notice his contract expired. He would have been a perfect back up for at least 1 year)
