Recent risers: Aouar 2.8m to 12m, Diaz 6m to 12m

Missed Mendy 2.6m to 7m, we had to choose between Diaz and Mendy. Looking back, we should have chosen Mendy over Djene. We actually had made that decision at the time but forgot to withdraw offer on Djene so Mendy collapsed. 

Other players we were tracking also rose. Ndombele 5m to 10m, Zambo Anguissa 6m to 10m, R. Lopes 7m to 14m. We correctly stayed away from Tousart, 8m to 10m is less than expected. 

Some comments on France: Lerager only +1, Lees-Melou big +2, Bourigeaud big +2, Le Marchand only +1, Sarr only +2, Kimpembe only +1, Traore only +1, Yuri only +1, Gnagnon big +2, Tete and Cornet got +1.

Aouar is a big rise. The reason I got him is because the transfer was made February 28. Port Vale usually gets the best risers very fast.

I don't play the risers game as I'm not familiar with the smaller Leagues. It's a risk, as we see in swanseajack's thread. But obviously I'm no expert, considering I could only send out a 80 AVR team before the Ligue 1 reviews.

I'm honestly the same way, and it's very interesting being in the same league with Port Vale who are very fast with picking out the best risers. But I do what I can scouting from soccerway with the rest, and with players like Kounde, Diaz, Mendy, Ndombele, Zambo Anguissa, Lopes still available, there are still good players left for us. 

It's a lot of choices, for example we had accepted bid for Marius Wolf, but withdrew, and we see now Port Vale got him and it was 1.8m to 6m.

I went in for Kounde after six appearances in the league. Fortunately Bordeaux delivered and finished 6th despite struggling at first.

Do you know how I got Aouar? I scouted every team deep in the Champions League and Europa League and looked for young players who were still rated low. Aouar was the best of them. He cost most of the starting budget we had.

That was exactly how I got Aouar. Wanted to make a big signing, even though he cost 2.8 Million.
