Ralph Hasenhuttl


Recommended Posts

Adam Blackmore has just said he will bring in his own staff shortly {only one though}

 

I guess how many do you need?

 

Assistant ??

Coach Kelvin Davis

Gk Coach Dave Watson

Sports Science Alex Gross

 

Davis and Watson aren't linked to the manager, hence why they weren't sacked with Hughes, so expect one to come in to assist RH

"As soon as we met, Ralph's enthusiasm for football was contagious," said Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger.

"His hunger to take on a new and challenging job in the Premier League was evident. In our discussions, he quickly aligned himself with the values and the vision of the club."

 

He is Hungry...now we need players with the same hunger.

 

Austin probably has the most hunger out of all the squad...

also a bit different from what we've had in the past as this guy is a training pitch coach/manager rather than let the coaches get on with it like

hughes and puel etc

Great news! Good to see the club acting in a decisive and positive fashion.

 

I was supportive of Hughes getting a contract in the summer but this turned out to be a mistake. From what I’ve read about Hasenhüttl I’m very hopeful that he is just the man to get us back on track. The future seems a lot brighter all of a sudden.

In the good old days of the Southampton Way (whatever that was), they always liked a v small staff to come, as when they left, it wouldn't be too disruptive. Maybe we are going back to that.

Interesting.

 

@AdamBlackmore: A titbit or two on #saintsfc boss Ralph Hasenhuttl

 

Was described to me as a football obsessive who works 8am-8pm

 

He watched Cardiff & 3 other games in England last weekend

 

When Saints first asked about him they were told by 4 different people they wouldn’t get him

Very good news indeed. I have not been as happy as this about a managerial appointment at our club since 2014 when we got Koeman. Of course the new manager still has to contend with the poor quality of some of the players recruited over the last few years and it will take at least a couple of transfer windows to sort that out but our club appears to be back on track, making common sense decisions again.

Just what has KD done to upset some of the idiots on here?

 

Idiots indeed. He's probably just seen as a bit of a unfashionable character. I love that we still have a couple of links back to the promotion side personally. I'd also like to see Lambert in as set-piece coach too, and reckon he'd just be a good bloke to have around the club again. Super Kelv though certainly doesn't deserve the abuse he has been getting on here.

Wow, he must be a clever chap. Being around Saints for somewhat longer than him, I have absolutely no idea what the (current) vision of the club is.

I think Krueger was just talking about himself in the third person :)

Plenty to put the cones out but looks like a need for a Fitness Coach in there as well.

Dave Merrington's worst nightmare....!

 

Yes, you OVER pronounce the U.

 

Hass-n-hooo-tle. (the 'ooo' is sounded whilst making your mouth shape like a 'you' sound - hard to describe in text)

 

Happy to be corrected by someone fluent in German though ;)

 

My Austrian aunt taught me to pronounce umlaut O more like 'err'

But that was years ago.

Exciting appointment. He doesn't have a lot to work with, but at least he has a track record of a high intensity style of play.

 

I wonder if anyone is willing to give credit to Krueger for this? Perhaps not having a 'football person' overseeing things didn't really matter, and perhaps Krueger is more decisive than meets the eye (or the ear, based on his interviews...)
