Fitness and Morale
The morale and fitness improvement of the players are the ones that have less economic expression in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team. Although they are easy to make, and in some cases even free, we do not recommend that you spend too much time with them.
If you get cheap training cards you can try to improve the attributes of the players before putting them on sale.
However, since this effect lasts only a match, most of people are not willing to pay more for this type of player’s improved cards.
The major target of this kind of cards are the misinformed players who think that the effect lasts forever.
The managers are responsible for the optimization that you can make with regard to contracts.
If you have enough managers in your club to a contract boost of 50%, it means that your cost to improve the players cards may be lower than the cost that buyers have. If it happens, you can easily sell players for a higher price since both sides are profiting.
