Thankfully, the season has ended. But not before more farcical and embarrassing comments. Rangnick is being interviewed by BBC reporter. First Rangnick says that he doesn't know when he'll have his face to face chat with ETH but maybe in the next 48 hours! Do these people not have the capability of arranging meetings?
But more worrying, the reporter mentioned to Rangnick that ETH had watched the match from the stands, and Rangnick seemed surprised and commented that he wasn't aware that ETH was there!
What on earth is going on at our club? You could see Lineker, shearer and Wright all saying how shambolic our club has become.
If we need anything to happen urgently, is ETH uniting and organising the footballing side off the field as much as the obvious need to unify and improve it on the field.
We are officially a circus run by clowns.

He also mentioned that 10 of the 11 players who started will be at the club next season, which I imagine will disappoint a fair few people. Cavani was the 11th, meaning the likes of Dalot, Fred, Telles, Maguire et al aren't going anywhere. Not a surprise to be frank, we need some players I guess!

23 May 2022 10:04:13
Well that’s a contradiction in terms! He hasn’t had a meeting with ETH yet and Eric is supposed to be calling the shots!

Why would eth want to sit down with a consultant to the board?

23 May 2022 10:33:08
Agreed Ken. ETH will want to plough his own field and I highly doubt he'd want to sit down with Rangnick.

He has seen all that he needs to know and if he hasn't then he is going to struggle with this job.

Looking forward to seeing how he tackles things, particularly the signings he will make. I'm sure there will be a few in there we have no clue about.

Lol of course they've been speaking for months. For all Ralph's straight talking throughout, this bizarre pretence that they hadn't met or even communicated was strange.

23 May 2022 11:30:01
I wouldn't read anything into Rangnick's comments, I am sure they will have a chat as he has mentioned before that they will be doing, we are in a position where a handover can take place and I am sure ETH will want to get as much information as possible but then he will do his own thing and Ralf will just advise the board as per his job role.

He was being asked if ETH has come into the changing room and had any impact on the team yesterday which was a stupid question as he hasn't started his job yet and would undermine Rangnick who had a job as manager until yesterday, so he was just saying he hadn't been involved and didn't know he was there.

Today is the start of the new era, let's hope its a good one and we get some signings in early.

Ralf is quoted as saying last week that he has been in touch with Erik via WhatsApp for a while and expects a sit down meeting with him today as a handover.

The sit down needs to happen as Erik needs to know that dressing room dynamic and where it has all fallen apart this year, best that comes from Ralf than the players.

I would not put any weight on most of what is said in interviews and certainly not try and interpretation the words with football managers most of them are very experienced with the press.

10 of 11 here next year is correct they are under contract he isn't going to say anything else.

I am sure he is fully aware EtH is here, feigning surprise was his way of avoiding questions about EtH. The rags and websites had said multiple times he would be. There is a media team who will brief him on stuff before he gets to the press. Its been pointed out to me before that a media person often speaks with manager straight away after a game before press get near. This happens in many sports, I even watched the 49ers media guy get involved in a fight between two head coaches and their players before and he explained that his job was to get and brief the HC before and media interactions.

I am sure that he has EtH number anyway, both are managers and involved in football many years, it's probably quite a close network, there is always stories in books told of managers phoning one another when they get jobs etc or to discuss things.

Ken the sooner Rangnick and ETH meet the better. Rangnick Haa been the manager for a few months and the information he relays to ETH is essential. Otherwise, ETH spend another season trying to work out who is worth keeping and who isn't.
Lack of communication is exactly why I wrote the post and it is exactly why the club is in this present state.

RR did an appalling job. He clearly didn't have the trust of the players and everything was a complete shambles by the end. Yes some of those players are poisonous and we want them out, but surely not all of them. RR seems to have escaped a lot of fair criticism.
