Hwang Hee-Chan - Wolves

Recommended Posts

He’s good but that makes our fee for Minamino an absolute pisstake.

Kinda shit for RB Salzburg to have this squad ripped apart, but they’re a fizzy drink club so fuck em.

I suppose RBS think that they are going to get raided at the rate things are moving so its better to start hiking the prices and find other prospects?

To be fair that's been their business model for quite a while. Losing their key players is a blow but they already have other talented youngsters who are expected to be the next ones to make the breakthrough.

This time they are in a bit worse position as they only have a two point lead in the domestic league and with LASK being on fire this season they might snatch the title and the CL Play Off spot from Red Bull if they struggle to replace Haaland, Minamino and eventually Hwang. It does seem they intend to keep him until the summer though.

I'm not surprised they've been using the business model. Look at the average age of those players and the potential to get money from their transfers. I do agree that we got a really good deal on Minamino and I believe it was you who said he just started getting good this season and I fully expect him to do well for us. Still, its a terrible model for club growth but I suppose if you're rocking that league every year you don't really have to worry about winning anything domestically.

Yeah Minamino started to be consistently good in the last few months; before that he was more of a sort of a super-sub and struggled to become a first team regular although his talent was always obvious - it just seemed he stagnated somewhat and wasn't living up to his potential. It seems everything just clicked this season finally and his form exploded.

I think it's the only realistic business model in a league like Austria to be honest; other clubs also rely on selling their key players and replacing them with new potential talents most of the time but Red Bull are taking it to a completely new level for sure. Watch out for the new batch of players like Daka, Okugawa, Koita, Bernede to get their chance in the first team now who will be expected to replace the departed key players. Not to mention a whole bunch of loaned out players; some (Berisha, Niangbo) have already returned to the club and will try to make a breakthrough; there will also be new signings in summer I presume.

This implies that they are looking to replace Raul Jimenez, I think.

Jimenez just signed a new contract?

More likely to replace Cutrone who just moved back to Italy to Fiorentina and keep Wolves' depth in tact for the second half of the season.

Wolves fans are getting a bit funny about their lack of business in general, said they were poor for recruitment in the summer and that selling Cutrone is madness, and that they're genuinely worried failure to recruit well this month could see Nuno walk.
