 Squad limits 
 Happy with them? Currently the max of 26 is for all players. But perhaps to encourage having them it could be changed so no age 0 players count towards the limit? Or a different min/max limit be set. What do you think?  
   Its perfect - stay as is. 26 max total works best. 
   More youth - don't count age 0. 26 total for age 1 plus. 
   Less needed - change minimum lower. To what? 
   More needed - change maximum higher. To what? 
   Other - say what you would like to see.

Squads are too similar to encourage trading. You will get some swaps like a swap of similar Forward for a Defender. There might be some trades for seasoned one year olds but I don't see much chance of trading in the T-11 range. Rolling your own is a much safer strategy. Special powers might help .......................

The special players do provide a new factor but at the start they'll be of such premium that managers will be reluctant to trade in them.
However, if you were to get allocated a  random special that you didn't like then I can see many a manager wanting to trade them in and.......................

I agree with all the points about SL spread being very narrow, and so trading is not that advantageous.  I think though that in a couple of seasons, maybe this one, that the mid teen SL player will start to regain their value as they become less common. Usually deals are youth for SL. &nb.......................
