Ralph Happy With First Week.
Tuesday, 16th Jul 2019 06:32
Ralph Hasenhuttl has expressed his satisfaction with the training camp and opening friendly in Austria.
Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl knows as much as anybody that at this stage pre season offers little insight into how your season will go, as the weeks progress things will fall into shape.
It is about getting things wrong now so you get them right on the opening day and building so that you hit the peak then not four weeks before.
On the surface it is difficult to see but underneath the manager will be seeing a lot.
This is what he had to say
"We have another topic now this week, and time to work. We have the China trip, so there is a little bit of travelling next week, but it's ok."
"It was the test we expected, after these hard training sessions, after this hard week, against an opponent who is one week from the start [of their season].
"It was a tough game. They showed they can also play good football.
"The first half both teams had a lot of chances and the second half it was a little bit less.
"It was an intense week, but finally at the end of it I have seen a few good things and a few things I didn't like, so it was exactly the test I wanted, and with no injuries, so it was good."

Matches of Yesteryear - Swindon v U's 1/9/01 by wessex_exile
I have the first of several Xmas work outings tonight, so I'm posting this a bit earlier.
Matches of Yesteryear - Exeter v U's 27/11/91 by wessex_exile
So, back again after my break for international duties. With our ongoing exploits in two of the three domestic cup competitions, it’s nice that the random match selector has chosen one of our earlier forays into a cup competition – albeit the one competition we’re no longer involved in this season…
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.
