    Now of course one would have hoped some of those draws could have been turned into wins....today, Watford, Burnley, and maybe not lose twice to Cardiff. Fine margins, but with taking on the squad mid-season, happy to survive as Hughes was crap.
    It’ll be interesting to see if we get enough points from the Ralph tenure to show we could have stayed up even without the Hughes 9 Points. 29 points so far and Cardiff are on 31, I think one win would do it. We’d have stayed up in a 23 game Ralph season. That is some going.

    Man’s a genius.

    Hasen-brütal, I’m going to savour next season with this fella before he moves on to bigger things.

    Legend, but also a lot of good news there, more coaching staff coming in, working on more transfers and planning all the training so we can switch between multiple systems with ease.

    Quite excited by what he can achieve this season.

    He seems to relish the challenge he’s taken on. Shift the deadwood and bring in his own players push up the league and he’ll be gone. But it would be worth it. Ball, Strachan, Adkins and Koeman have been my favourite managers since I’ve supported Saints, but Hasenhuttl could usurp them all if he keeps on impressing.

    Didn't he leave RBL because they didn't offer him a long term contract...which he wanted?

    Gut feel is he will do well here, and then like Poch move on to bigger things. However the RBL situation (if my memory on this is correct) gives me hope that if we back him, support him and show him the love, we might be able to keep him a while.

    Early days yet but I agree with you about the massively under-rated Nigel Adkins, a man without ego and always a ready smile. Our progress under him was a joy to behold and laid the very firm foundations of what was to come under Pochettino & Koeman. Arguably the best manger we ever had. I loved the passion he had for the game and particularly recall the Davis testimonial when he was out of his seat demanding everything from his ex-Saints side in a friendly!

    Ralph has some work to do yet before he can truly be compared to Adkins & Koeman

    Nigel Adkins leaving Hull. Seems like he was offered a "derisory" new contract by Hull owners. Can't agree he was the best manager we ever had, but he was a top bloke, decent, hard working and enthusiastic, a great role model.

    Very good interview. From the man himself: wants a goalkeeper coach (as rumoured), fitness coach, up to five new players, with a focus on speed; and not older than 24. He's also committed to promoting from the Academy.

    And he's personally getting involved in all of the scouting and recruiting departments.

    Let's hope the club back him to the hilt - this guy's definitely a real asset.

    exactly what a manager should be doing. If the buck stops with the manager then he should be intrinsically involved in the players brought in. I don't have a clue about day to day duties of a manager in current football, but I just don't understand how a manager could allow someone else to sign a player for me without scouting him (watching him live) myself.

    Hope that there has been some discussion with Watson previously. Irrespective of the merits of the decision , it'd be a pretty poor way to learn of your demotion/exit, via a translated interview in the press.

    RH seems like a straight talking guy, he let the playing staff know so I cannot see any reason why that wouldn’t be the case with the coaching staff.

    I would suspect that's the most likely scenario, and gives the outgoing staff the opportunity to look around for opportunities beforehand. I know there are a lot of whispers around here about Watson not being much good, and subjective comments about what he's done to some of our keepers (!) but do we have any objective evidence? Presumably keepers we have recruited from elsewhere must have an opinion, just like Ings had an opinion on our early season training after arriving from Liverpool..

    Class act and if we could get 5 years from Ralph IMO he'd become a legend.

    Sadly don't think we will though......this time next year the sharks will be circling and we'll just need to get the next Ralph.

    If he does get to bring in new backroom staff aside from Watson I wonder what it means for Kelvin Davis?

    Was €2m when he joined, unless he's signed a bumper new deal in secret, I dont think they're a particularly trustworthy source

    And I doubt if any of them earn a flat rate fixed sum per season. They'd all have incentive bonuses in their contracts.
    Same as players really, more they win, more they earn.

    We refused to give our most successful prem era manager 7 million to keep him, I doubt we offered 6 million to a relatively unknown quantity (in prem terms).

    What are the chances that Marco Silva of Everton is one of the lower-paid managers in the league? Author must have picked names out of a hat for this article.

    That was then. After the Clown and Sparky fiascos (and near disastrous relegations) it appears the owner and board now realise how priceless a quality manager is. They seem to be doing everything to make Ralph happy, and I wouldn't be surprised if that includes big bonuses. Money well spent (unlike the litany of disastrous Reed purchases and player contracts).

    Ross: How's £4m a year sound?
    RH: Can we do pre season in the UK?
    Ross: You've gotta go to China.
    RH: £6m

    Not at all ITK, but how about €2M (not £2M) per year standard contract when he joined, and €4M bonus for keeping us up? So total earning last year €6M - much much better than £19M for last ditch crap managers even crappier unknown striker?

    An event from today that I wouldn’t normally bother repeating. A certain player ( let’s say a rising star) returned for training . One of the first things they do is check body fat ratio which is set before they go on holiday. It was slightly over the level.It was immediately reported to Ralph who insists on knowing everything.
    The player was summoned to Ralph’s 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 don’t 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.

    Disappointing if it was, say, Slattery. In his couple of outings for the first team it was noticeable that he only had two speeds: walking and jogging. Against Burnley (I think) their players ran past him with ease time and again with the ball and he barely seemed to even try and keep up.

    I wasn't sure if he was lazy, chronically slow or incredibly unfit, but it left a negative impression of a young player once tipped as a real prospect.

    Let's hope whoever has been slacking learns a hard lesson and gets their act together pronto.
