Ralph Misses Koln Game To Have A Minor Op
Sunday, 4th Aug 2019 09:11
Ralph Hasenhuttl was absent from the dugout for the game against FC Koln, but there was a good reason he was having a minor operation.
Saints put out a brief statement prior to the game against the Bundesliga side to confirm that Ralph would be missing and why, it read:
First team manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has undergone a minor procedure on a leg injury in a local hospital and will therefore not be in the dugout for today's friendly match against FC Koln.
"Ralph has prepared the team all week and plans have been set for our coaching staff to take charge of the game.
"He will be watching and influencing the game via video link, and will be back at Staplewood when the players return to training for the build-up to the Premier League opener next week."
Hopefully nothing too serious for Ralph, although it may well curtail his usual boisterous celebrations when we score a goal for a little while .

Yesterday was Alfie’s 15th birthday, so I was delighted that the random match generator has selected a game that is an important part of our life together following the U’s. I therefore make no apologies about the focus I will place on this game – I hope it brings you as much pleasure as it did me.

Apologies all, it’s been quite a hectic week at work so this one had to wait until today I’m afraid. I’m off to the New Lawn after this, so looking forward to seeing Noah and anyone else when I get there.
