Weeding out Youth Squad


May 27, 2009
Does anyone know if "weeding" out your youth team will produce better regens?

I'm RC Strasbourg in first season and in 3rd league with Average youth facilities and recruitment. I made the point of releasing all of my youth players (who were garbage) leaving the squad full of greyed out players.

My first class of regens brought in 2 players touted as future "good ligue 1" players and another who was borderline ligue 2/1. I've done this save 10+ times and I've never had a class like that before in first season (or 2nd or 3rd).

Is this just a coicidence or does the computer see that I'm in need of youth players and therefore generates them more on level with my facilities instead of spreading a couple good players over multiple classes?
