    Presumably K Billy had knowledge of this interview when he alluded to Hoedt being ****ed off the other day.

    I'd accept that if he was actually that good.

    Funny that he says about playing well for 80-85 minutes but then making a mistake or losing focus and being “killed” for it. That sums up a lot of his performances.

    He certainly knows how not to get back in favour

    Yep. Comes across as a total bellend. He seems to be under the delusion that his being surplus to requirements is based solely on his fitness levels, and completely unable to grasp the fact that he's simply not good enough.

    Haha. Hoedt is a nasty piece of work. RH saw it straight away. Unbelievably arrogant and totally believes his own hype. Will never play for us again.

    Good news if we've agreed 8m Euro for him though. Better than walking on a free whenever his contract runs out.

    Let's just hope he's not so ****e that they don't want him.

    He's on a reported £60k pw contact and signed a 5 year deal end of August 2017. Got a feeling we will be stuck with him for a while.

    If he was half as good as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as good as he actually is

    Funny how that article pretty much translates every sentence except the one where he says that he didn't perform at Saints.

    But in the end he's just not good enough.

    No way Antwerp is paying 8 million though. That would be the equivalent of us paying 40 million for player. My guess is he'll be back in the summer.

    He always struck me as ambitious, complaining if he wasn't being picked. I can't see him being happy to sit in the background and play with his money. He'll be pushing for a move I'm sure...

    Not that I reckon many of us were expecting to see him back here, but this looks like the point of no return.....

    As a player any worse than what we've got? Probably better. He's meant to be a massive bellend though so can see why hes not wanted around.

    He has a serious ego problem, I mean it's obvious when Ralph said 'second chance' to him, he meant at the club and that his performances for the club, regardless of the manager had not been good enough. Instead of going yeh thanks I'll play better he complains he hasn't had a first chance.

    Just because you get a new manager does not suddenly mean everyone forgets you have been crap for the last year.

    He strikes me as one of those 'why me' people that is always looking at other to blame apart from himself for his failings.

    The shame is that Hoedt has the potential to be a really good defender, if he was prepared to listen to others and work hard to improve. But he is just trouble and we are well rid. One of those people who just looks to blame everyone else, rather than take responsibility and learn from his mistakes.

    Does make you wonder if anyone actually checked what he was like before we bought him though

    FFS can just imagine Ralph walking away from that conversation thinking "what a deluxe edition w@nker, that's it he can go"

    That's for the original Hoedt. This thread is about super-fit Hoedt (TM)...

    This. Truth is he has the potential to be far and away the best CB we have. Anyone who says he is rubbish is deluded. But his lack of concentration, his arrogance and his **** headed Ness makes him a complete liability. What he needs is a coach who is sympathetic and understands what is needed and can help the guy. Ralph is not that guy (no criticism intended). There is a very good player/defender In there waiting to get out. Bit like what has happened with Stephens. Maybe someone like Koeman would be able to harness his potential (Erwin possibly rather than Ron).

    It was kind of 50/50 on here who was rated as our worst defenderover the last couple of years, him or Stephens. We now see that with a bit of faith Stephens has shown his worth, maybe Hoedt could have done the same though, but the problem you understand in that interview is that he hasn't recognised how poor he was. He feels he's never had a chance and almost boasts of saying so to Ralph. Ralph will have seen the inept performances though and will have seen the errors he was making. Maybe Stephens was more accepting that it was down to more than just fitness and that changes in attitude, teamwork and concentration were needed

    He literally says he didn't perform to an acceptance level in the interview.

    Personally I think that's nothing more than a pathetic plea for some other prem club to come and get him during the transfer window, wouldn't be surprised if it was agent led. You would think that the distinct lack of interest, and the fact that there are not copious amounts of clubs queuing up to sign him might give him an idea about how crap he was.

    To be fair he's doing well for Antwerp, they were 2nd in league despite him being a c**k, so hopefully they may buy him

    Hoedt at Craven Cottage last season. That is all that needs to be said.

    A Swansea fan asked me before our match what chances I thought we would have. I told him that Hoedt was like Bambi on ice. Then the BBC go and give him man of the match. Where did it all go wrong?

    Personally don't agree. I could always see the very good attributes in Stephens which were foiled by lapses in concentration. Whereas with Hoedt i could never actually what our scouts saw in him at all.

    This.

    You have to be categorically mental to think Hoedt would ever be any good. He won’t. Ever.
    On another note.... not very good for clean sheets are Antwerp..?

    Hoedt sent of with a straight red card in the 8th minute.
