<font size=1>At the start of your Manager Mode season, put your fitness coach up to the highest level you can afford. Then, your players will not tire as easily, and you can use your best players for longer periods of time, helping you to win more in the process.</font>
Hey...you know when your players get really tired they start with about 50% of stamina bar after 5 games. Here's a solution. Before your first game go to office > Staff Upgrades > Fitness and push that to maximum. It may cost a bit ( usually around £6,000,000) but it means you don't have to rotate every few games <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/wink.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />
If you're new to the manager mode or plain struggling try the following.
For your first two games play your first team. At around the third game you'll notice that your players start off with a worse stamina bar and have trouble keeping pace with sprinting and will be trailing behind when marking players.
This is where the reserves come in. When you face easy teams compared to yours, put some of your newly bought players and reserves in for a game or two. When you face the hard teams your good players will have their bar filled and able to play. Make sure to mantain a good switching feel for your team. (Goalkeepers rarely tire out, but keep your eye out for them)
I know how tough it can be to begin a Manager Mode career with a lower league team, or a weaker side than the better teams in the game, like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Man Utd, AC Milan etc. It's tough to get your players to improve and to keep their fitness levels high.
But what I'd suggest is, whenever you get a bit of money from winning games - upgrade your staff as much as you can. Just don't upgrade your stadium just yet. Worry about the others first.
Attack: Your attacking coach is improved and your strikers will improve more the higher your attacking coach is upgrade.
Midfield: It's the same as the attacking coach, but upgrading this staff spot will improve your midfield, obviously.
The same applies for the defending and goalkeeping coaches. It's important to improve these, but the most important staff to upgrade is most definitely the fitness coach. Once your player's fitness is high, you will never really have to rest players. When you start off as a poorer side, your fitness levels are so low that it's very tough. But once you upgrade this, it becomes a hell of a lot easier.
