Ep. 49- To Be a Saint, with Phil Drake and My Very Best Arsenal Friend Josh

Phil Drake, author of To Be A Saint, joined me this week to talk about writing, his new book and the recent happenings with the club. It was a real honor to have him on the show and to get the chance to talk about the history of the club through the eyes of a fan from 1976 to present. This book is almost 20 years in the making, and you can tell. It’s a fantastic story, and it’s beautifully told.

 

Phil has written a bunch of other books as well, both fiction and nonfiction, so do be sure to check them out!

 

If you’d like to get a copy of To Be A Saint you can do so on Amazon. If you’d like a shot at a free copy, make sure to retweet the pinned tweet on my page (here as of 2:00pm Tuesday, 12/12) and follow both Phil (@pdrakeofficial) and I for a chance to win.

Oh, and I also had a conversation with my very best Arsenal Friend Josh on this episode. He’s been my best friend since Kindergarten and most of this is his fault. Not the highest level football conversation we’ve ever had, but I still enjoyed it, and I hope you do too… I caught him and his son recording some stuff as well, and I left some of it in there, even though the kid doesn’t agree with me being a Saints’ fan. Anyway, special thanks to Josh for being there for me for the past 25 years and always providing the encouragement I needed… and also, screw you, Josh, for introducing my to what it’s like to suffer heartache and devastation on a seemingly infinite basis… Josh tweets utter shite, so I’m not posting his account.

Ep. 48- A Long Pointless Trip and a Dive Into Bournemouth, with Aydin Osman of Read Southampton

In a week where Saints’ fans had both one of their longest and shortest away trips if the season, I’m joined by Aydin Osman to help sort out what to make of our performances against Manchester City and Bournemouth. It was a pleasure to speak with Aydin, and although the technology and Skype gods did their absolute best to foil our plans, we managed to talk about a range of things, from our recent team and individual performances, to Pep’s pep talk with Nathan Redmond, a Sterling strike, the possible penalty at Bournemouth and much more (don’t worry, I did cut out the 15 minutes or so we spend talking about internet providers and TV licenses… which I didn’t even know existed). Anyway, I think you’ll enjoy it… and don’t worry, there isn’t an overwhelming amount of stoppage time on this episode. Enjoy it.

 

About a month ago Aydin wrote an article looking back at the year since we played at Inter. It’s a worthwhile read, and the link to it, and the Read Southampton Facebook, Twitter, and Website are all below. Be sure to like, follow, etc, to keep up on your Saints’ news.

Ep. 47- Tadic Stays, Austin Plays, and Together Saints Score 4, with Jamie Grant of the Saints Report

Well how about that? We all know Everton are garbage, and it’s not just former Captain Ron that thinks so. But, no matter what you think of the blue side of Merseyside, you have to give some credit to Saints for their performance on the pitch on Sunday. In the immediate aftermath of that bare-bottom spanking we gave Everton, I spoke with Jamie Grant of @TheSaintsReport about the match, mental health, and the upcoming trips to Manchester City and Bournemouth. It’s not often that Jamie steps out from behind the Instagram filter, but it’s always a pleasure when he does.

Special thanks to Jamie for having the courage to speak about his ongoing battle with depression and mental health. I know it’s hard to speak about, but the only way we can change the stigma surrounding mental illness is to speak out about it.

Ep. 46- Peak Goalkeeping with Millie Peak of the Southampton Women’s Football Club

This week is pretty special. I got to see a few of my good friends for the weekend, and, currently, my family and I are at Disneyland, the happiest place on earth. It’s a good thing, too. I consumed so much alcohol Friday night and Saturday that I remember very little of the Saints performance against LFC. And, what little I do remember is being replaced by memories of my kids screaming with excitement at the sight of princesses, wild rides, or spinning teacups. I also know that this episode is pretty special.

 

This weekend I spoke with Millie Peak, #1 for the Southampton Women’s Football Club. Millie and I spoke on Friday evening (pre-alcohol) about her career, being a goalkeeper, the team’s recent form and more. It was a pleasure to get to pick her brain about the game and get her thoughts on it all. I think you’ll enjoy it.

 

Millie is sponsored by Dosanjh Convenience Stores (link), but the club is always looking for new sponsors, as they players and coaches often have to pay their own way to the matches, for training, etc. If you are interested in sponsoring a player, coach, or advertising, you can visit the contact page on the website, or email the club secretary (email below).

 

A special thank you to the Southampton Women’s Football Club, Lee Calendar, and Millie for making this happen. It’s a pleasure to be able to work with such a fantastic organization.

Ep. 45- Southampton FC Off the Pitch, with Greg Baker of the Saints Foundation

This week I had the opportunity to speak with Greg Baker, head of the Saints Foundation about serving the communities in and around Southampton through his work at the Saints Foundation. As always, we start with being a fan and work towards his current position as head of the Foundation. From there we look at the different projects the Foundation are currently focused on, how it’s changed since its inception in 2001, how new and current projects are developed, how you can get involved, and, most importantly, why he and his team do the work they do. If you didn’t already think the Saints Foundation was doing wonderful things in the city, I think you will after listening to this.

 

The links to get involved and follow the Saints Foundation are below, so be sure to check them out, whether you thought you heard of a program that would benefit you or someone you know, or there is some way you would like to help. Get in touch and get involved in what Greg and his wonderful team have going on.

Ep. 44- Burned by Burnley, Burden for Pellegrino, with Jake Hughes of St. Mary’s Musings

Well, well, well. Here we are again, slightly bitter, disappointed, frustrated, yet somehow very happy to be here, talking with yet another great guest for this week’s podcast.

This week, after a disappointing match against Burley, where one of our own fans, Sam Vokes, scored against us to take all three points, I’m joined by Jake Hughes (@JJHughes_ on Twitter). Jake is the editor of St. Mary’s Musings (you can also find them on Twitter @StMarysMusings) in addition to writing about MMA for various outlets. From his story of becoming a Saints’ fan, to writing about the club, listening to metal and interviewing some of the biggest names in MMA, I think you will enjoy our chat. Be sure to give both Jake and St. Mary’s Musings a follow on Twitter and check out the website, both are well worth your time!

Ep. 43- Breakdown in Brighton, with Matt Beling of the We Are Southampton Page

This week I am delighted to be joined by Matt Beling of the WeAreSouthampton Page on Instagram. You hear me talk about him every week but this week I got to talk to him, not just about him. It’s always a pleasure to chat with Matt and, as always, he was great. We talk about his page and some of the changes that have gone on since last February, as well as his trip down to Brighton to catch Saints’ 1-1 draw against the newest south coast team to join the Premier League. It’s not all rainbows, as Matt and I give an honest opinion of the match, the manager, and the team.

 

I hope you enjoy the show and, as always, thank you for listening. Be sure to check out Matt’s page- https://www.instagram.com/wearesouthampton/?hl=en if you haven’t done so already.

Ep. 42- Boufal Bags Wondergoal, Baggies, and 3 Points, with Owen Hawes

This week some pretty good things happened. Saints got three points, we scored from open play, The Astros made the World Series for the first time since 2005, and the Dynamo got a home playoff match by finishing 4th in the conference. Overall a pretty good sporting weekend from my perspective.

It was made even better by getting to chat with Owen Hawes, @Owen_TheSaints on Twitter. Owen writes a blog- owenthesaintsblog.wordpress.com- and contributes to the 90min football YouTube Channel (his most recent video can be found here). In addition to blogging and vlogging, he’s a creative writing and drama student in Kingston. I very much enjoyed getting his perspective on the match and the team, and also appreciate him giving me so much of his time. We talk Southampton vs. West Brom, the Boufal goal, his reaction, team selection and more. I hope you enjoy the show! Be sure give Owen and 90min a follow on Twitter and visit owenthesaintsblog.wordpress.com for more of Owen’s writing.

Ep. 41- 2 Goals, 1 Point, and a Lucky Draw, with Richard Brereton

Link to donate to a Saints family who lost their home and possessions in the wildfires currently raging in Northern California. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/keith-seymour-1

What to make of the return of football to St. Mary’s after the international break… we changed the system, we scored, we equalized twice and came away with a point, but we also fell behind twice to newly promoted, tight-wad Newcastle. There are definitely cracks in the team that need addressing, and supporters are becoming increasingly more worried about the lack of points on the board given the schedule we’ve had to this point.

 

To help me break down the match against Newcastle this week is Richard Brereton, editor of the @Saints_Panel. He was a joy to have on the show again and I wish we could have talked for longer. But, there is more to life than recording the podcast… at least that’s what my wife tells me. You can reach Richard on Twitter @RichardBrer and you can follow the Southampton Panel @Saints_Panel.

Ep. 40- Enjoying the Break, with James George, Post2Post Pod, and the Exiled Geordies

I think I made the most of my international break. I spent some time with family, ruined a family picture, jumped from a moving vehicle, and a bunch of other things I’m not willing to commit to writing. If you followed my Instagram story I’d like to apologize for what you may have seen.

 

I also used the break as an opportunity to talk with three different podcast hosts about their podcasts, Saints, and our upcoming match against Newcastle. First off, I spoke with James George (@mrjamesgeorge on Twitter), who hosts the the @saintsfanspod along with Marc Higgins (@MarcTR4). We talked about James and his family moving to California, what his life was like growing up playing football, doing reality TV, working at TalkSport, and winding up running two podcasts here in the US. If you haven’t listened to them yet you really should give them a shot. Links to iTunes -->SaintsFansPodcast, Sports Gambling Podcast- Twitter is @eplshow

 

After that I spoke with James Nash (@james1nash), one of the hosts of the @Post2Post_Pod, a new football podcast based in Southampton. He along with Connor Dunford and 2 other co-hosts, bring you a weekly football discussion touching almost all the Premier League teams, with a focus on Southampton, West Ham, Chelsea and Manchester United (the hosts' supported teams). It’s the general football discussion you want without the mainstream media influence. Give them a follow on Twitter and Facebook, check out http://www.post2post.co.uk/ and listen and subscribe today! iTunes

 

Lastly, I was joined by Alex (@alexpicc6), 1/2 of The Exiled Geordies Podcast (@NUFC_podcast) to talk about our upcoming match with NUFC. He and his co-host Brad bring a lively podcast covering all things NUFC to listeners each week. If there’s a Geordie in your life please turn them on to the show, it’s of high quality and I really enjoyed chatting with Alex about their nightmare owner, our recent history and the upcoming match. Find them wherever you get your podcasts. iTunes Facebook.
