So like many of you i am getting a little boared with FM2011 and can't wait for FM2012. So before the release of FM2012 in a couple of months i started one last game to keep me going.

I chose to be Barcelona because i have never been them before on FM2011 or even played in La Liga before. I felt the challenge with them is to keep them a top team and try noto to fall down the rankings. I would want to keep on winning trophys and keep players happy.

I have just completed first season and won La Liga with 100pts, Won Spanish cup and Spanish Super cup but lost to Real Madrid in the final of the champions league. So i feel a very successful first season overall. Bearing in mind i only had £12m to spend. Played 38 Won 32 Lost 2 Drawn 4, 100% home record.

July 10th is the start of second season and the board announce they wish me to be successful in all areas again and have given me a whopping transfer budget of £150m.

The problem i have is that its all well and good having £150m to spend but you are only allowed to have 22 outfield players registered.

I have managed to max the 22 outfield players by buying and selling but i am not happy about the fact i wont have the back up if i get a couple of injurys.

I do know however that i can register players in the Barca 'B' team but there are very few match days i can actually play any players from the 'B' team as most of the games are played same day.

Has anyone played a few seasons in Spain before and successfully consistantly played 'B' team players in the first team?

Is it possible for me to register my 22 outfield players in 'A' team and also promote 'B' team players even if they are registered only for the 'B' team
Is it not like the EPL where players under 21 don't need to be registered?
Simular but instead of under 21's it under 19's which makes it a little tougher

I bought Romelu lukaku from Anderlecht as he is 18 years old so dont have to register him for a year or so
ive managed Barca a few times on Fm 2011. alwasy pretty successful . i went a year and a half without making a single signing . jus using there youth players. like Thiago , marc muniesa , marc bartra. they all turn into superstars .. just use your youth academy cause its good enough
