Not expecting anything major from these two, but if they hit there expected rating then we'll make a strong profit on both.

Mosquera is up there for for us in terms of most appearances, goals and assists so far whilst Tyler Adams was very effective for us in his limited time in the first team.

Corryn disappointed, but that was made up for with a very generous rating increase for Christian Luyindama who is now the second most profitable player in our journey and the joint highest rated alongside Ruben Dias.

Generally good from both the Ukranian and Austrian reviews, with only Gegam Kadimyan failing to hit his expected rating. What's particularly pleasing is the pace of the reviews right now, with leagues getting completed in just a few days, and we're now straight on to the Swiss review which we've got enough cash to invest in another couple of players for.

Raoul Petretta LB Switzerland 21 76 800,000 82
Djibril Sow DM Switzerland 21 75 700,000 83
Kevin Reugg RB Switzerland 19 73 300,000 80

We've only got £800,000 or so to invest in players after these signings, which isn't a great amount but it only needs to get us through until next week when transfer bans for a few players expire and will free up £11 million worth of funds for us to spend on top youngsters in the mould of Cutrone and Geiger.

Kevin Reugg RB 73 80 82 300,000 2,000,000 1,643,000

Considering our initial investment, the Swiss review was an overwhelming success. We got better rating increases than expected, and for an initial £1.8 million we've came away with players with a squad value of £6.2 million. Raoul Petretta and Djibril Sow both also slot nicely in to our starting line up.

We're now looking incredibly strong, as Petretta's rise means that we have a full team of players and substitutes rated 82 or above. The side is already at a Division 2 standard both in terms of quality and in terms of strength in depth. In that team, you'd expect Patrick Cutrone to keep on banging the goals in for fun at this level, having taken just five games to become our top scorer.

We've now spent all of our funds, and are waiting until tomorrow for transfer bans to expire again before we can resign any players. There's a few players in Greece that we'd quite fancy picking up, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get the funds in time to bring them.

Slightly disappointing, and not enough for him to improve our first team. He does add to the list of strong subs that we have, even though he's not much use and it does keep the profit ticking over past the £40 million mark after wages.

Port Vale 5-0 Crawley Town (Jensen 2, Dias, Sow, Bebeto) 

Swindon Town 0-3 Port Vale (Miranchuk, Jensen 2)

The performances have stepped up in the league, as Patrick Cutrone has positioned himself in a great place to win the top scorer for the division despite only having played eleven games for us so far. The marquee win and marquee result of the season so far being a fantastic 3-0 win away from home to our main rivals Swindon Town. Swindon still have higher rated players than us, but we've definitely got a much bigger squad value at this stage and a lot greater strength in depth, so it will be interesting to see how we match up against them next season.

Pantelis Hatzidiakos RB 80 2 0 0 0 6

Ruben Dias and Fredrik Jensen are the two notable exits, with both falling just short of getting in to the Hall of Fame for the most appearances. Ruben Dias is in the Hall of Fame, and should be for some time, as our most profitable signing by some distance whilst Fredrik Jensen is just about in their as our joint fifth highest top scorer for the time being.

These sales have allowed us to keep on bringing in players from the top five leagues, which should be reviewed shortly.

Two disappointing reviews on the whole, with most of the Championship and most of the Greek risers falling short of expectations. Fortunately we didn't invest too much in either, and have managed to come away with at least some profit from both.

Slight step backwards in quality due to the exit of Ruben Dias, but we're now hoping that the team's rating will really push on now in the next few weeks with the review of the big leagues. We're hoping for rises from the likes of Cutrone, Geiger and Wolf that should make them our first players rated above 85.
