Klopp Of The Alps
Thursday, 6th Dec 2018 21:49
The title sounds like the name of an Austrian detective series, but although it seems our new Ralph doesn't like the title, it's starting to catch on.
Klopp Of The Alps has that certain ring to it although Ralph Hasenhuttl has said he would prefer to make his own name.
"I have heard about it. I don't like it so much; I want to be my own character.
"We know each other and we were sat our FIFA pro-licence tests together.
"I was always a friend of his from football. He has a very proactive way of playing, and made a big mark in Germany. That kind of football really influenced my style.
"If I could do similar it would be fantastic for me, but that is too far away. We have other targets, goals and problems.
In the meantime though Saints fans have picked up on it and he might find he is stuck with it for a while as down here we like a snappy namephrase as Poch, CMFG, WGS, Le God and that **** Branfoot found out in the past.
Ralph might find his title shortened to just the initials KOTA though and now the search will start to find a song for our new man, already a few old ones seem to have been adopted but we need to find something a little bit more original.
Perhaps the song Eidelweiss from the Sound Of Music could be adapted.
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Other songs from the Sound Of Music are available and we could miss a great chance to start to get some stirring and original songs back in the repertoire of those who stand in the Northam.
So perhaps someone could adapt some of the other songs to welcome the Austrian to the City and make him feel at home at least until he has made his "Own Character" and is know as Hasenhuttl Of Southampton and Jurgen the German is renamed Hasenhuttl of Bootle !
But remember there are no kangaroo's in Austria !
So welcome KOTA to Southampton fist impressions look favourable.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
