I like his comments and seems like the right sort of personality for the club. More communication from him in one day than we saw from NC during his entire reign...

I fully agree with your comments Boston Saint. He came across as a very genuine guy and clearly indicated he thought there is great potential within the club. Krueger's appointment also suggests KL is in it for the long haul - I hope so. I guess the proof of the pudding will be seen when the summer transfer activity kicks off and how Saints line up for the 1st game of our next season the Premiership. Have very positive vibes.

I like the sound of what he has to say!
Makes all the Cortese sponsored press after his leaving seem all the more embarrassing now for the Daily Mail and a few others!
How I love being a Saint!!

Welcome Ralph. You come across well. Biggest PR win would be nice new contract for MP, LS, AL etc. Good luck and thank you to Katarina for everything she has done.

No complaints here, he's clearly more of a team orientated personality than our old banker Mr Cortese. Proof of the pudding and all that but the fact that he's not from a football background may mean that he'll have to invest more trust in the manager and his team than a chairman normally would. This could appeal to Mauricio as he'll be allowed to play a greater part in shaping our future and will hopefully have a better say on transfers and team selection than he might have done under the Don.

Norwegian Saint says...

Like these comments, the way he wants us fans (all over the World) to interact and trust them. The first day on the job you need to impress and I think he did that. Mentioning tears while talking about Saint Markus shows it is a legacy being built. Already we should see that the last chairman we had involved in Hockey (Lowe) wasn't in the same ballpark. Cortese will always be remembered as the man who helped save Saints and saw a vision which, I personally hope, will continue under Ralph.
Good luck RK!

Like the sound of this with caution. His comments relating to the need to build on commercial revenue to sustain where we are indicates a budget restraint perhaps for next season! Wish him well though and glad to see KL making the right moves. Bless her an her father.

Sounds very positive. He managed to get through the whole interview without mentioning the word soccer.
Not sure what the slight retraction about 3 years was that he mentioned right at the end of the interview
