    Very interesting that he watched Cardiff, the team we are due to play and his first game, shows he was probably close to being in place before the weekend I reckon.

    I think Hughes was basically sacked from the Fulham game and they have been lining this guy up over the last few weeks.
    Sounds like he should get us back on track.

    Harry Maguire has not had a fit for not leaving Leicester either

    He is Hungry...now we need players with the same hunger.
    If Ralph H's training and tactics are even half as good as Ralph K's bullsh8 we really should be getting somewhere.

    For who? Manchester United? Hardly the super power anymore.

    I expect if Liverpool or Man City came in for him, he would've kicked up more of a fuss.

    The VVD situation was fairly unique and no doubt milked by Les Reed to manipulate the idiot fanbase.

    Fear. Fear. Fear

    Helped with his agenda to sell anyone decent and anyone Liverpool wanted.

    Fair play to this chap. Called it ages ago.
    He sure did, well done sir.

    A deserved pat on the back to the board as well for not going for the obvious choices and instead doing their homework and coming up with someone who plays the type of game that has given us the mist success in the past.

    Well not many people would have predicted they would have been as bad as they were.

    ------------------------------

    Coutinho also played well for pool before leaving for Barca after being denied the move in the summer.

    Like I said VVD is a c*nt, not every player hankering for a move just gives up, sulks and plays as crap as he did.

    An embarrassment of a post. What have Liverpool won in the last 5 years? Nothing.
    United? FA cup, League Cup and Europa League. Players want to win trophies.

    Who have you got more chance of winning things with now? Man United or Liverpool? Who do you have more chance of qualifying to Champions league with this season? Man United or Liverpool. Not all of us are stuck in past and see what's happening now.

    If I was a player, I wouldn't touch Jose's united with yours.

    Anyway this has nothing to do with Saints. Love and light

    Fonte on RaHa:

    “I spoke with a couple of managers who know him and the references were very, very good,” said Fonte, who is now in France with Ligue 1 high-flyers Lille.

    “I expect good things and hope he can turn things around fast. But what I’ve heard is very good, very very good.”

    The one thing about his RB team, he had a player called Demme, although he had Kieta and or Kampl often they would press constant from midfield and get caught out of position but Demme had this brilliant skill of knowing when to press and more importantly who to press. So when you had Kieta/Kampl and Demme in CM, Kieta or Kampl would launch about like nutters and Demme would just wait for them to fall into his trap. This is needed for RaHa's system.

    I wonder if we may see less of the Lemina & Hoj and more or Lemina/Hoj and Rom? Will be interesting.

    The inclusion of the line “lots of possibilities” might be my favourite piece of trolling of all time.

    This is the tricky bit. Momentum is strong

    Whether he can replicate this ambitious and complicated style of football at a Southampton side who have been playing dire football for over two years now remains to be seen.

    His football isn't that complicated, but it defo needs the players. I believe we have the GK, RB, LB, Midfielders and Attackers to work. Biggest issue is CB's.

    Look at Vestergaard vs Man Utd for Herrera's goal. Vestergaard's complete inability to get back and mark Herrera in anyway should be something that can be fixed by good coaching. No excuses for that kind of lazy defending. Hopefully RaHa can improve the CBs we already have.

    Hoedt on the other hand...

    I think if RaHa could get him back on track it would be a v astute piece of business. Even better if Walcott came too...(i know)

    There's part of me that would love both to come back, but assuming we stay up, signing expensive 29 year old's probably won't be on the agenda.

    Heard his interview with jim white on talk sport today and he pretty much told him the same thing Jrod told me when I met him in Ibiza and that's when Cortese left us our determination and ambition to be a top 6 team left with him !

    Itís not really an embarrassment though is it. If I was a pro footballer and both UTD and Liverpool came in for me, I would go to Liverpool.

    Excited by this appointment! Welcome on-board Ralph - the 'Klopp of the Alps' be great to go back to the high intensity and pressing style of Poch & Koeman.

  29. Default

    Although not expecting an instant turnaround, I'm quite excited by RaHa (as he seems to be known as here). I don't think we have quite enough pace in the squad to play the fast counter that RB displayed under him at times, but on it's day our midfield can be as good as any outside the top 6. I think Redmond will be key this season, assuming we can sort out our excuse for a defense, with the right coaching.
    This is a positive, aggressive (to quote Klopp) aquisition.
    COYR !

    And yet we still showed enough ambition to appoint Koeman and finished 6th the season after. Weird.

    His track record is certainly good, and very much in line with our most successful managerial signings of late.

    Let's hope he hasn't come in too late and can indeed turn things around, seems like the manager we should've signed in the summer!

    Haha blast from the past there. But actually that makes depressing reading. When Koeman left us we appointed a coach who is a far far inferior manager to all those three listed there. Les Reed, or whoever decided to hire him, should have been fired on the spot for that. It's still costing us now.

    Obviously Hughes and Pellegrino were poor too, but RaHa will still be working to undo the damage Puel did to this team. The effects will last an awful long time.
