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 .

Matches of Yesteryear - U's v PNE 3/5/15 by wessex_exile
Although not an avid collector, I recently catalogued my collection of football memorabilia and I have 175 items, mostly programmes, some fanzines, and a few ticket stubs which aren’t accompanied by anything else. I have no idea how many more may have been misplaced during house moves, clear-outs etc., but the collection spans nearly 30 years (the earliest is the programme from our 1990 Boxing Day game against Barnet at Layer Rd), and is almost universally Colchester United related (though not quite all of it). I have decided to try and put this to some use, by choosing one at random prior to each match and writing a short article about the match, maybe the programme, and even any personal recollections I have of the game (notwithstanding enforced enfeeblement due to excessive libation). I will try and do this ahead of each game this season, but my apologies in advance if I don’t quite achieve that.
