Hi guys, I have academy at level 4 and it says youth gen time should be 39 rounds, but higher it says this - Your youth academy is currently at Level 4. Next youth player is expected to be ready in 48 round(s).

How is this possible?

If you recieve a youth player early, the remaining time is added to the next youth timing.

As Don-x said, you can receive a youth upto 14 rounds earlier than estimated, and when that happens the remaining time is added to the next youth

Out of interest - is there ever a downside to promoting a youth player?

Strikes me that as long as you can fit them in your 30 you should even if just to release and get cash or is there more to it - I've only ever had 2 so far

You can get multiple players per season at higher youth academy levels, and the second one will cost 50% of value to promote, 3rd one 100%, 4th one 150% and so on. If you promote a second player in the same season and release him then you are at a loss of 20% of his value. So you promote a second or third player only if you want to keep him, or may be not promote even the first one if he is no good and you hope for a better player in your next youth generated.

Yeah but it means you will have to pay 50% to promote your season 15 yth kid if his good.
I will be losing a 95pot gk on may 21st, because my finance is not enough to promote him and no one want to buy my young player i listed, i've seen some stupid transfers these few days and i wonder how those managers get lucky to sale those useless players every season.

Getting him wasn't my problem, its getting to sale him above what i paid to promote him, i've decided if the youth player is not worth a minimum of 4.5-5 learning and 85 pot, i would never pay a dime to promote.

I spent around $17 million in scouting fees this season to sign one 22 yr old 97 potential/5 star learning WB for 80% of his value. And you don't want to promote a decent youth for just 50%? If you promote him early season, even releasing him at end of season will give you back the money you paid for promoting him if not more (including wages paid)

@Fathima
It's 100% promotion fee.
1st one was DM 98pot/5learning
2nd one was unexpected CB 4 learning/62 which i paid 50% to promote, can't find a buyer for him, in other to promote the 3.5/95pot gk, i can only sell one player.
I'm due a new pull in 20 rounds, even if i had the chance of promoting him next season its a risk.

Oops my bad, I underestimated your academy level. If you are getting upto 3 youths a season then definitely do not waste the free pull on bad ones. There is no point in having too many youths in your squad anyways (unless you want to train until end of season and release), will struggle to give them all enough xp gains.
