Not enough players to fill bench


  • Hello,

    I have a game at 7pm tonight and I have a player suspended which means I do not have enough squad depth to fill the squad. As I'm fairly new, this has not occurred to me before. Could someone tell me if this means I automatically lose the match or what implications there are to this? Thanks!!

    @LessStressThanFifa Hello mate and welcome to the OSM and World forum :)

    A single player being suspended does not bring the end of your game . Do you have back up players? Or club funds from your sales to buy a new one from your transferlist? Or you can try a different formation by using the available players that you have right before each round. And did you use your lawyer to help you decrease the days of suspension for your player?


  • Hi thanks for your reply. I have first 11 and exactly 7 more players. 1 defender is suspended for 1 game meaning I have 1 space on my bench for a defender but nobody available to put in this spot. I am playing as Cambridge United. Having made transfers already I only have 300k and the cheapest defender on the transfer list is just over 1 mil. If I change my formation, I will be a different position short. I have tried the lawyer but it still days suspended for a game day. What I'd like to know is, if my starting 11 is full, will the game proceed as normal even though my bench is short by 1 player or will I automatically lose the game because my bench is not full?

    I'm top of the league and closing in on 25 wins in a row between my two careers, to get the achievement so I'll be annoyed if it counts as a straight loss.

    Thanks again.

    @LessStressThanFifa No my friend , don't worry about the bench. What matters most is your first 11 line up.
    And be careful with how you will choose your special tactics... If you have a very strict Ref , choose wisely your tackling and pressure etc. You cannot afford to lose another player tonight, from what you wrote here. ;)

    "I'm top of the league and closing in on 25 wins in a row between my two careers, to get the achievement so I'll be annoyed if it counts as a straight loss."

    Congrats for that , but keep in mind that for this achievement you will need 25 wins in a row from a single league / Slot mate ( including Cup matches ). And not by counting wins from multiple leagues. If it was like that it would be so easy for an achievement .

    P.S. Do you have maybe a spare midfielder to place on your bench? Not the ideal thing to place our players out of their rightful positions ...but extreme situations require extreme measures sometimes.
