If your right Southampton all I can say is he better be good.......its taken long enough!! Actually on a more serious note it will be a very interesting appointment. how will a German coach adapt to the PL?. Its probably recognised as the best technical league in Europe. Ive been to a few Bundersliga games, great atmosphere but like watching paint dry at times as the teams cancel each other out. What Ralph will make of the 100mph PL is anyone guess!!
That's just not right. The best league in terms of technical skills is by far the Primera Division in Spain. The Bundesliga is compared to EPL much more tactical and imo even technically ahead of the EPL. Michael Mancienne said that each team wants to build up the game from the back by passing and keeping the ball even the smaller ones whereas in the EPL especially the small teams use long balls to succeed.
Jermaine Jones and Michael Bradley said the same thing when they were interviewed and asked about the differences between the two leagues. The Teams just go at each other. The pace is much higher in the EPL, so I think the football is purer and for me more interesting to watch. Sometimes it just looks like the Premier League teams just ignore the briefings before the game. They constantly attack.
Ralf Rangnick is a quality coach with lots of experience. He'll do fine in the EPL otherwise your chairman and the board wouldn't have picked him. Basically the game remains the same. There's no big difference between Germany and England. 11 guys and one ball. The only difference is pace and the player's physis. And pace is not a thing that hinders you from coaching well.
@Alex1: nice one. I push my thumbs for you.
