Ralph Hasenhuttl


Recommended Posts

Manchester United will either make or break a manager's career. The last few have all been broken.

I doubt Hasenhüttl will even be thinking about it. He has a fantastic opportunity to build his reputation here and achieve European football over the next couple of seasons and build his stock.

He will not, as a relative unknown want to wreck his managerial career by going too big too soon.

A couple of good seasons at Southampton and he no doubt will go on to bigger and better things but for now he will do a job with us.

I'm more worried about those fu cking spuds. Daniel levvy is a t*t and will surely be looking at us if we do well this season. Surely utd will go for zidane though. A caretaker till the end of the season could be disaster. Are they not aiming for champions league and top 4? Bit weird.

If Ralph did go to Spurs at the end of the season (no way on Earth he'd get the Utd job on the back of 6 months at Saints) he must have had a heck of a season here to get the job. As in, fighting for Europe by the end of the campaign.

 

I'd have thought Spurs would be more interested in Howe, Wagner, Santo or Benitez before they came knocking on our door.

Howe and many others will be wanted before Ralph at spurs....

 

 

Ralph has had 2 games and 1 week training and no one else in football will be suggesting him for these jobs bar some loons on here

 

In fairness, Ralph had a very good reputation in football before he joined us. He’d been touted for pretty much every big job in Germany and by all accounts it was a surprise he came here.

 

A big if, but 6 good months and we finish mid-table, he’ll be in a very strong position for a role at someone like Spurs.

 

That being said, if Tottenham need to move this summer I think it’d be Howe.

Rumour has it, that he was on Arsenal's radar!

10 games = considered permanent hence solksjaer odds, and pochettino long odds.

 

Oh. Drat. I think Poch is feasible not only for the good it might do Utd, but also that it will damage one of their main rivals for top 4. Would also be very funny hearing all their fans bleating about it on Talksport. boo hoo.

Back in 2016, he talked about the press conjecture that had him as Wenger’s potential successor...

 

“I have certainly heard of far worse fates than to be lined up as the successor to the longest-serving coach in England...

 

...I am not interested in such rumours. We don't need to think much about it. I've found my luck here in Leipzig."

Poch should take the Utd job, Spurs are pretty much capped out at where they are, Utd massively underachieving and wouldn't take much to get them firing again.

I'd be suprised if Poch didnt take it. Regardless of how ManUtd are placed now they are in the top 5 elite clubs in world football with a massive spending potential and no wage restrictions. Probably only Barcelona or Real Madrid are bigger.

 

He's done amazing at Saints and Spurs and I think has taken Spurs feasibly as far as he can, especially with the restrictive wage structure they have there.

Exactly, Spurs peaked and still were unable to win the title. Paul Mitchell for all his brilliance has to take some responsibility for that for not signing a top class striker as understudy to Kane, putting too much trust in the youth.

United "peaking" means winning the treble. So a significant upgrade.

Whilst many will find it amusing Spurs losing Poch to United in the summer, by then there may be a manager who plays pressing football and been a success in the PL that would fit straight in with Spurs squad. We wont be smiling then.

Madrid and Barcelona might be bigger in terms of draw for a player, but I'd say Manchester United eclipse both in terms of world profile. Apparently Mourinho, who had been at Madrid previously, was taken aback at the level of scrutiny/interest/coverage United got when they travelled around the world.

Why would Spurs go for RH even if he does show potential for next 6 months?

 

Surely they'd go for a manager whose proved it over a longer PL period. Like Silva, Howe or even Chris Hughton or Rafael Benítez

His style of play and culture he brings would fit exactly into place IMO

Too soon
They may not be interested in him, but the time IMO is irrelevant if he does well for us - they may have been tracking him for a few years. If he does well here over a short time then it would make him even more appealing as it shows he has settled to English football and that his style translates well to PL football.

 

What more would they want to see?

Irony alert given Kane was given a chance as a young player.

It looks pretty certain that Ralph is a good fit for the club, the players and the fans!

Who is the credit due to for the making the correct appointment?

 

Good question.

IMHO it looks like Reed might of been the one holding us back in the last few years with his tame appointments.

Perhaps Gao might have a football man on his side that might have some ambition for the club?

It's a very good question - hard to believe that Ralph K. has identified RH. Who is the person deserving of a very big tick?

Do you find it hard to believe he couldn’t call on some expertise to draw up a shortlist?

 

Give the credit when it is due.

It is a bit hard to believe given Kreuger presided over a sinking ship for 2 years while defending the appointment of Pellegrino long after it was credible to do so. However, let's enjoy the Ralph H. era irrespective of whose idea his appointment was.

Was told a v funny story re RH today, about how how he's ignoring what players have achieved in their careers, and basically pretending how he doesnt know anything about them. Won't say who it was regarding but he's clearly giving all players a clear slate and putting an end to any ego's around the place. He's obsessed with football, stats and analysis. The opposite to Mark Hughes who had his favourites, based on nothing but liking the player.

Yes, I think this is evident in his readiness to give the academy players a chance. He's putting it in all their minds that if they show him good things in training and in U23 or even U18 games, he is prepared to promote them if there is a spot available in the squad. It's also saying to the senior players that if they don't pull their weight, whoever they are, there are viable options that he is prepared to use instead.

Bertrand's a Champions League winner so that's the obvious one, but he's been injured so I can't see the story regarding him. Lemina perhaps, he's played in the UCL final. Or Cedric, who's dropped out of the team entirely.

 

Anyhow, great news that the players are being put in their place. I had hoped that a strong character like Hughes would have done so but clearly the opposite occurred.

Given that thy've seldom featured then that's possible, although if you read original post again:

 

.... how he's ignoring what players have achieved in their careers, and basically pretending how he doesnt know anything about them. .

 

Not sure what "achievements" the three you mentioned have actually had.

Some managers - Van Gaal and Poch spring to mind, prefer young energetic intelligent players who take on board the manager's system and do what they're told; in lieu of successful but over the hill prima donnas.

 

I reckon RH is from this school of management, which bodes well for us as he will improve the youngsters, putting a value on them.

Whats that now...4 league wins outta 8?

 

Shown our previous two managers how out of touch/depth they were, players always had the ability to be mid table at least.

 

Mental really. Before RH we had just 9 wins in the last 65 league games accross Puel, Pellegrino and Hughes

 

All 3 also failed to win a single league game against the top 6 clubs + non compensated us with attractive football

 

RH comes in and beats Arsenal, plays attractive football and gives us 4 wins in 8.

 

Just shows how bad the other 3 were.

 

RH >>>>>>

The thing with managing players now, it's not just about sticking a few cones out, getting them fit and talking tactics. Managers need to do this, but players need to be inspired by managers, look at Pochettino and Guadiolla, the players love playing for them, it doesn't matter what message you're trying to get across, if you don't inspire them, they won't run through walls. Just ask Mourinho
