I mentioned it in the winter break update with Salzburg, but I’ve been meaning to write about the new potential player development pathway that’ll hopefully be revolutionising Red Bull as a whole. So here it is!
Philipp Lahm’s first season in charge of RBS brought the return of trophies to Salzburg. The club’s baron spell is over after domestic success, winning both the Bundesliga and the cup last season. Quite a lot of that success was down to some very successful loanees from RBL, which proves the model is working. Well, at least one way of it. We’re yet to really reap any benefits from the RBS to RBL side of the model, despite a few players going in that direction. More on this later on.
We’ve hit the winter break in Austria too now, as well as in Germany, so it’s time to take a look at our summer business and the first half of the season.
2 weeks away on a work trip has meant 2 weeks of fairly solid FM time for the 1st time in a good few years! What a treat. What it has meant is that I’ve managed to get through the 2nd half of the season in probably record quick time for me. What this means for you is that I’ve managed to get the update written for the end of the season for RBSalzburg (RBLeipzig following very soon too)! We were going well at the half way stage, top of the league and had progressed well in the cup. I was confident we could go on to win the league and get back to where the club belonged, qualifying for the Champions League!
Season 4 in-game, but of course, it’s our 1st season at RBSalzburg. As the break comes earlier in Austria than it does in Germany, it’s RBL up first in the winter break update. If you had no idea that I’ve now taken over RBSalzburg as well as RBLeipzig, then fire on over and read the intro post that you might have missed.
This save is about to grow arms and legs because alongside RBLeipzig, I’ve taken over at Red Bull Salzburg too!
