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 .

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.
