only reason i've brought this up because i've just had a player retire at the grand old age of twenty

lucky he was just a rubbish youth, but still it's a teensy bit odd

That's strange! But what's even more strange is 'Lennon set for Crystal Palace' surely not Aaron Lennon is it?

i thought it would quote the picture

I thought I'd be annoying and quote that qoute :) basically young players who arnt played (especially south americans) are retired to make way for re-gens, it's common sense :p

hmmmm, a bit random, but 8 players who were on my shortlist, only a few of which were old, have just retired after the season has ended, all on the same day. Strange, probably a bug
