Thread: Ralph Hasenhuttl - Confirmed!

    Interesting change of policy by Ajax with Tadic & if they get Toby A.

    Not that Toby A has anything to do with RaHa... but Toby's performance levels do seem to be on the decline. Having said that and having watched Utd's defence of late he'd still be an improvement for them.

    Ralph needs to get into our defenders minds, 2 lapses in concentration last night cost us dearly. Yoshida from the corner and Stephens when he was appealing for offside (which it clearly wasn't) rather than busting a gut to get back. We looked good going forward and on another night we'd have scored 3.

    Is it me or is his head a morph between Richard Madeley and James Martin?

    Nah, put an eye patch on Ralph and he's the Governor / Davis Morrissey.

    Yes, just like someone on here who used to predict 17th each year, until we got there.

    He does indeed. There's actual substance to what he says as opposed to 'keep ball' and 'pass it'.

    Hughes here for how long? Couldn’t work out issue.

    New bloke has worked it out after one game.

    I bet zonal will be gone.

    Long, Lemina, Hojberg. Austin won’t last under this new guy unless he bucks up his ideas.

    Really enjoyable listening to this. Seems level headed, humble and with a good sense of humour whilst having a clear plan.

    Ralph Hasenhüttl says he will closely monitor players in the #SaintsFC Academy and won't be afraid to put them into his team if they are performing well enough:

    Was he asked about January?

  27. Default

    1. Hasenhuttl's first impressions of Saints:

    “It was an easy decision for me.


    “It’s a pleasure for me to sit here and I am very proud that the club decided to go for me.

    “It’s a big challenge for me but it’s a logical step for me in my career.

    “I had very good meetings with Ralph Krueger and it was relatively clear that I could help the club in this moment.”


    2. Being approached to replace Mark Hughes:

    “It was a very quick decision.

    “You never know what happens as a manager when you are on holiday.

    “I knew a Premier League club would force me more than any other Bundesliga club.

    “My kind of football sits well with this league. It’s a very intense way.”

    3. His ambitions for Saints:

    “The first target is to get out of the relegation battle as quickly as we can.

    “We can’t be frightened about it.

    “We have a lot of games and my methods of play need a lot of training sessions and we only have one session before Saturday.

    “It’s about stabilising the defence very quickly as it has been too easy to score against us.”

    4. Being nicknamed 'Klopp of the Alps':

    “I don’t like it so much.

    “I want to be my own manager. I know Jurgen Klopp very well and I was laughing at his explaining of my name. His German is perhaps not as good as his English anymore.

    “We were sitting in the football school together and got our coaching licenses together. I was always a fan of his football and he set marks in Germany that influenced my style.”

    5. The fans:

    “I need everyone to be with us.


    “I saw the crowd yesterday and I have never seen support like it when the team was 3-1 down.

    “They will have to accept another style of football and I know it’s a results game.

    “We have a lot of games and my methods of play need a lot of training sessions and we only have one session before Saturday.

    “We can’t be frightened about it.”

    'I can play 433, 343, main goal to be proactive, press very early, also depends how much quick players you have, but need to find formation that suits and fits the players'.

    He's not wrong. We're well stacked with players (& that's not including the 11 out on loan).

    honestly i haven't been this excited in a long long time, more excited than when Poch and Koeman came in recent years!

    speaking everything that we have all wanted to hear

    'if a player can not go past the limit i want we will fall out'

    Seems he’s knows the problems we have straightaway.
    Very astute,concise in his vision of what he wants.
    I think a few of the current squad will be ‘found out’ and very quickly out the door.
    He’s going to be a very tough taskmaster.
    Good sense of humour,i think not only our fans but others will warm to him.
    He reminds me of a young Wenger and a Klopp combined.
    I think the club has enticed a very classy and well respected manager to join us.
    He will be off as soon as a big club comes in though.
    We are the perfect stepping stone for him.
    I see some big changes coming both on the pitch and off it.
    So let’s see what we make of ‘rabbit hutch’.... I’m excited about this.

    I am willing to accept another style of football, Ralph.

  35. Default

    I’m already sold on this guy. Great interview.

    The players are going to be working their ****** off and anyone who doesn’t can wave goodbye.

    Will focus on the defence and everyone will know their role and tactics.

    Youth will be given a chance.

    Likely to see new arrivals in Jan and probably departures too.

    Nice to feel positive about Saints again. In the Prem, pressing and high energy will soon be known as "Hasenhussle".

    Fantastic first impression. The key bits I took:

    1. Its his way or you are out. And he specifically mentioned hard work and running. Music to the ears of fans and it appears clear which players that won't suit - and he will just marginalise them

    2. He has already targetted a defensive improvement will be the key to getting out of trouble, but will be interesting to see how he goes about that. Sounded like he has spotted things from the Spurs game to work on

    3. He is a very engaging character, who will be well liked in the media in England and if he does well, will get touted for bigger PL jobs before too long.

    Sounded very good. Looks like the players will be required to up the intensity significantly.

    Makes you wonder if wee Ross might come good now Les has gone.

    Crikey, the guy is intelligent, focused, articulate and charmingly modest. After the tedium of a Hughes or Puel press conference listening to our Ralph is like manna from heaven. His frankness and openness will endure him to everyone. You'd have to be one miserable git not to like why we've heard so far.

    Who will be the first player to say "I don't fancy this, too much running" and Ralph's messages him, Run Rabbit Run! Charlie will soon slim down to weight and Ward Prowse's legs will be three inches shorter by January.

    "The squad is too big"... this man sees it and talks it as it is, no hiding now Ralph K

    Basically if any players can’t cope with his fitness programme, goodbye.

    Like how he brushed off the importance of yesterday's last 20mins where we played with more freedom.

    Reminds me of Koeman with the authority and stature he gives off when speaking. Really enjoyed listening to his interview and that’s the first time I’ve said that in 3 years.

    His style appears to be a hybrid of Poch’s high intensity, hard working, pressing and Koemans direct, fast build up.

    A real shame he didn’t come in 3 season ago instead of Puel and he has a massive job turning these unfit, lazy, unconfident bunch around but I’m arguably the most excited I’ve been as a saints fan since I can remember
