I guess this only really applies to those folk about to recruit a steady stream of 4* or above talent. I'm wondering how people approach recruiting and the use of scholarships. Obviously we can only sign 3 people of 5* status and you'd always want to fill up all those slots if you could. But what about 4* talent. Do people look to fill up remaining roster slots with 4* talent? Since we cannot cut a 4* recruit regardless of how low their rating comes in at are people hesitant to sign 4* talent at times? For myself I'll target signing 2-3 5* players in during season and then look to get 4* players but making sure I'm not filling all my roster slots with 4* talent. This year I have 20 scholarships to offer with 15 open roster slots. I'll look to sign 3 players of 5* talent (leaving me 17 scholarships and 12 roster slots) then get 7 players of 4* talent (leaving 10 scholarships and 5 roster slots left). With those other 10 scholarships I like to sign maybe 4-5 3* players. These are guys I'm taking a chance on but can cut if they end up lower rated then I'd like. Say I sign 5 of them. Then going into the off season (assuming no one leaves early) I'll have 5 scholarships I can offer and 5 open roster slots. In off season I can see what new 4 star players open up and if I like them go after them. If I don't I can try for some more 3* players. Ideally I'd end off season with 15 roster slots I'd sign 3 players at 5*, 9 players of 4*, and 6 players of 3* quality. The 5 and 4 * I have to keep. The 3* would compete for the remaining three roster slots. Anyone else look at this type of setup or do you have entirely different approach?
