"We are seven points could have more," says Hüppi, "then we would be a third party." And when he thinks back to individual games, it would have been seven points more easily. He knows, the could say the other team also. To mention he does it anyway.
Hüppi he now sits in the St. Gallen media room, Zeidler says: "We do not have the necessary points. So many "What would it" do nothing. The Situation is serious."
Basically, Zeidler is a Trainer that fits with his attitude to this club, this green-and-white movement, as propagated Hüppi since he took office. He is a football play who is optimistic, so Hooray. Sometimes he is also too optimistic in the qualities of his squad. But he thinks that the 56-year-old German, is in Eastern Switzerland as well: "attack is the best defense."
"We could have seven points more," says chief Hüppi, "then we would be a third party."
Four of the goals achieved by his team in the last eight Games, exactly the same a few, such as GC. And the balance sheet of the last four home games: 1:11, 1:7 goals. Nevertheless, the audience at the St. Gallen West for sold-out ranks, caused, as against Lucerne in the 140-year anniversary of the Association was celebrated. "It was a Hammertag," says the President, "this mood!"
thousands were already starting from noon, around the stadium to entertain and did that until midnight. You are the Good of the club, "the Asset", as stated by Hüppi. They stand for the importance of, and anchoring in the Region, "take share of what we make," says Hüppi, "that's why you have the right to be disappointed if the results turn out to be different than expected".
The 61-Year-old is constantly on the move for the Club he presided over for nearly a year and a half. It will give him a lot of never-to-be, and if, he would say it never. He is white and thinks green. On Thursday, he held a half-hour presentation at a Bank in niederuzwil, for an hour, he then answered questions. "They were critical, but always with a Touch of wool," he says. FC St. Gallen moved differently than the GC does. Almost 13'000 spectators of the cut is in the Kybunpark, more than twice as many as in the case of GC.
"It's hard for me to stay positive," says coach Zeidler, "it falls even slightly."
Hüppi know, he needs in the Eastern part of Switzerland, the viewers, to be able to sensible economies in order to bring "a black Zero to the finish". He has no generous shareholders in the back, which are used, if necessary, a Minus of 8 million as at GC. 7.9 million Swiss francs, the Budget for the 1. Team, including managers. Probably just Xamax, Lugano and Thun.
The St. Gallen have the dream, by playing attractive football to attract viewers. For this, they have brought in this season Zeidler from Sochaux. Unfortunately not the results. This was the case, for example, on the anniversary of the game against Luzern, ended in a 1:2. This was on Easter Saturday. On Monday Hüppi Ski went to, he wanted to enjoy the day, and when he came down from the mountain, he learned from the 1:0 of Xamax against YB. At the latest, there had to be aware of how messy it is in this Super League - and things get and what is the meaning of a victory, more or less.
"If you win three times, you're in for Fans of the Biggest," says Hüppi, "if you lose three times, everything is just a joke." This arc of tension he must be able to endure. The he does also. And because of this, it is not difficult for him to remain, despite the recent negative balance is positive, "not at all," he says. "Positive Thinking is the prerequisite to break the Trend. It would be devastating, to paint the devil on the wall."
Before he says this, he hears his coach exactly the same talk. Zeidler explains: "It is difficult for me to stay positive. It falls even slightly." And why? "I've been looking forward to testing that when I was well-prepared. We are well-prepared."
