Thread: Ralph Hasenhuttl

    I wondered if it was Obafemi, only because Ralph has publicly criticised his attitude in recent past.

    He's on the Austria trip.

    Gotta be Slattery from the 'clues'...?

    I have to say I agree with a lot of what Qwertyell says: I expected a bit more speed and fitness from Slattery when he played last season. Not entirely ineffective but disappointing given the earlier stories about his potential. Perhaps he believed them too much.

    The player was summoned to Ralphís office and given a severe dressing down. They are very precise ( no shouting or swearing) but you are left in no doubt you are in trouble.
    The player was told he is , at least , going to miss the beginning of the pre-season tour and even worse he was going to be subjected to a daily fitness regime, much feared by the players.
    Ralph is very popular with the staff but everyone is aware if they donít perform they are in trouble. Apparently he is totally focussed on the clubs success to an OCD level. I only repeat this to show the bed wetters that we have an amazing manager and he means business.
    Armstrong isn't there ?

    Next in French goalkeeper. Best I can do I’m afraid. At Staplewood at the moment.
    His morale is low and he’s struggling with Ralph’s tough but fair coaching techniques. Targett staying too.
    How reliable is the information? From the same itk poster.

    i have no idea, but his Targett comment would suggest he's not 100% spot on!

    Could be one of a few. As well as Slattery, you'd probably have expected Ramsay and Johnson to have been in contention, possibly O'Connor too. Blackmore specifically commented on McQueen not being included but I thought he was injured so why the comment? And Armstrong didn't travel due to 'food poisoning' which strikes me as odd. That said, I wouldn't categorise him as a 'rising star'.

    Sorry, just to add Reed and Hesketh are the other contenders, but imagine they're not in Austria due to being deemed surplus and imminently moving on along with some of the other bigger names left behind (Classie, Austin, Gallagher, Lemina and Carrillo)

    I know he won't be here much longer, but any chance you could type Clasie, rather than Classie? Ta. You're normally accurate, so take it you have a blind spot over the word.

    As to the fat player; how much overweight was he? Slattery was never carrying any weight and he is only 18 or 19 still, isn't he?

    Without Ralph I'd be dreading next season and expecting another inevitable relegation struggle.

    But with RH we have a real chance of something sweet. A top 10 finish again even!?

    Just hope we get him the mix he needs over the summer.

    Get this club heading in the right direction again. COYR

    Squad is light for midfielders, even accounting for Armstrong.

    Would love to think we could achieve a top 10 finish this coming season, but I didn’t see such a significant step up in results to be honest...yes an improvement but not to that degree. Without making a clear improvement in our central defence I can see another lower half finish. Remember, our new additions are not tested at Prem level and other teams will improve too, so there’s not a great deal to get really excited about just yet...cautious optimism at best.��

    A cracking player with a terrible attitude (from what Iíve seen of him outside of the club). Heíll be off as soon as the opportunity arises.

    Stupid Slattery. But his attitude off the field is poor.

    Nice to see that Slattery has been hung drawn and quartered by the forum Gossip girls.

    Who needs confirmation, facts or explanations when the "fans" are happy to bypass and throw as much mud as possible.

    Exactly - these fans are everything that's wrong with modern day football.

    Jesus, 2 Heisen-posts in 2 days I’ve agreed with. Is it all the sun they got in Glasgow recently a factor?

    He’s been hacked. Obvs.

    Just on another tangent away from slating people based on rumours..... yes yes I know thats what we all do.

    I wonder what type of yoga Ralph does ? Probably improves his mindfulness and I saw an article the other day that the Merc F1 team are doing mediation as well to improve their performance.

    Maybe we can see yoga or meditation become part of the daily training ?

    Given how much everyone is wedded to their phones nowadays, 45mins being quiet and alone with their thoughts might scare some of our guys.

    Always makes me a bit sad when a player is criticised for an alleged attitude problem when no one has any idea or clue what the player is actually like. Of course we're entitled to an opinion on their performance, level of skill, stamina etc - basically anything that happens on the pitch but outside of that and it's just guesswork. Add that to the double-think scenario where player A is slagged off for supposedly wanting to leave and player B is slagged off for wanting to sit on his contract and not move and it's just bizarre.

    You base that opinion on what? The lad spent a fortnight before pre season working his nuts off at golden ring to get ready for pre season. That's a great attitude imo.

    Maybe it's something to do with the recent forum upgrade?

    It's based on the post from SKD. Cabbage Face has had never had any original insight or ITK information.

    Good article that, can't fault Ralph's enthusiasm.

    Also confirms the trip to China is a waste of time, going for as short as possible and just taking a handful of first team players. Makes sense, experience will be good for youngsters and first team can concentrate on fitness at the Ireland training camp.
