Back again for another update in the RBLeipzig and RBSalzburg save. In a slightly reflective soppy comment, what a save this has been so far. I’ve said it a few times over the last week or so on Slack, as much as I love managing in my home country of Scotland, I think Germany and the Bundesliga has been the best league I’ve ever managed in on any version of the game. Austria? Meh, not so much, but heck that just adds to the whole story.
When we left off during the winter break, we were sitting atop the Bundesliga. Four points clear of Dortmund, with two games in hand due to our Club World Cup winning exploits. We hadn’t lost yet in those 15 league matches, we’d romped to six wins out of six in the Champions League, and as it happened, our only defeat of the season so far was against last season’s Europa League winners, Arsenal, in the European Super Cup. Would that become a significant point come the end of the season?
