Saints made some changes this week. They changed formations, changed player positions, changed their recent run in the league (it no longer just has LLLLL) and so we changed up the matchday routine too.

This week I jumped on Mike Smales YouTube Channel to watch the match with him and Jack (You can get the channel here). It was a 4:30am kickoff for me, so I hadn’t even had a sip of coffee before kickoff. But, as I injected the caffeine, Taki injected some life into our performance and put us ahead. Chelsea leveled the score from the penalty spot, but overall it was a wonderful match to watch, especially with the company of Mike, Jack, and the people in the comments saying I look like Johnny Sins.

Anyway, getting to actually see and watch a match with other humans was great, even if it was via YouTube, and it was also a lot of fun to get to chat with Mike about the match afterward and give some praise to Minamino, Djenepo, Salisu, and Ralph.

As always, thanks for listening, and be sure to check out Mike and MAtchday Vlogs on YouTube and Social Media.. and when we are back in stadiums, seek him out to take part in the show!

The good news is there were no 9-0 losses this week. The Bad news… well, there’s still plenty. A KWP injury, a record 6th straight league loss for the club, a lack of response from the team, and VAR decisions (you know how those go these days). We can still smile about Stuart Armstrong, moving through in the cup, and I smiled when I spoke with this week’s guest Aydin Osman (on Twitter and Instagram @aydinosman96).

Let us know how you are feeling heading into next weekend!

If you asked a P*mpey fan to plan a birthday week for a Southampton fan last week would have been it. Losses 4 and 5 in a row in the league, a 9-0 defeat with 9 men, and a 3-2 loss to a team with 9 men. Add to it lockdowns, torrential rains, and a job predicated on people being able to actually see you, and you have Tom Deacon.

Tom is a comedian, host, presenter, Instagram Chef, a coffee connoisseur, and this week’s guest. If you don’t already follow Tom on Instagram (@tomdeaconcomedy) or Twitter (@TomHDeacon) I suggest you do. For the Saints content and because there are times when you just want to smile and he’ll help.

We walk through the matches, make jokes that probably don’t actually relate, and generally have a good time. I hope you enjoy it more than any 60-minute stretch of Saints in the last month.

Saints were rather predictable this week. A thin lineup, limited goals, more injuries, A deal sheet to get a transfer over the line, letting fullback (who Ralph doesn’t really truest) leave even though we don’t have cover, and us being snubbed in the transfer market for one reason or another. We’ve all been here before, but we keep coming back. If you keep coming back here, then thank you. I appreciate it!

Joining me this week to discuss Arsenal and Villa is Lucy Highett (on Twitter @lucyhighnett). Lucy is one of my favorite guests to have on (I’m probably not supposed to have those, but I do). She keeps me honest, challenges my thinking, and helps me out with FPL decisions when I’m stuck. I struggled to be as positive as normal this week, and I apologize for that. As I write this post-transfer window, I'm not sure exactly how to feel. But, I know I enjoyed making this episode, and I hope you enjoy it too!

Saints managed two wins in the FA Cup since the last episode was released. A Tuesday night victory over Shrewsbury and a Saturday afternoon win against Arsenal means a few things for Saints in the coming weeks. 5th round FA Cup Clash with Wolves is set for February 10th, the 5th of 6 matches in 3 weeks for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.

Saints have further injury concerns with KWP out of action for Tuesday as well. How Ralph manages the minutes over the next couple of weeks will be interesting, to say the least.

Joining me this week to recap the past week, answer your questions and look forward it Tom Mason, writer and reporter for Prost International (website here) You can find Tom on Twitter @tommason18 and Instagram @tom_mason19.

A depleted Saints squad failed to take anything from Leicester City on Saturday night. But we lost more than just points. With the schedule jammed, further injuries and suspensions mean Saints will look to bring youth into the mix in future matches. In addition to the Leicester City match, Saints released their 2020/2021 accounts and announced a new kit deal with Hummel. Joining me to discuss it all is OneFootball editor Blaise Bourgeois. Blaise is an American living in Mexico and someone whose life could not be less like mine. We have common ground, though in our love of Saints. I enjoyed getting to know Blaise a bit better and I hope you enjoy the show. Follow Blaise on Twitter and Instagram @BlaiseBourgeois.

2021 is supposed to be better than 2020. It’s not like the bar was particularly high but we’ve definitely stumbled out of the blocks this January. With COVID infection rates rising, and Saints’ 3rd Round FA Cup match postponed, for now, Chris Hutchings (@hutchfm on Twitter) joined the show to peel back the layers to the onion Ralph cut last week against LFC, as well as the impact of COVID, the youngsters, and the transfer window. As always, let us know what you think.

It’s not everyday Saints knock off Liverpool in the League. In fact, it’s not even every year or every other. In fact, it hadn’t happened since a 3-2 come from behind win under Ronal Koeman’s watch. There were a number of reasons Saints should not have won on Monday night, but none of them matter. The squad depth, the injuries, illnesses, and other calamities that reduced the squad to what it was, Hasenhuttl’s record against Klopp. But, none of those mattered. Saints took 3 points from the defending champions and current league leaders, shooting themselves to 6th in the table, and putting in a performance that brought the big man to tears.

Joining me this week to discuss the match and address your questions is Prost International’s, Jacob Tanswell. Jacob is a longtime Saints fan and journalist and it was a real pleasure to have him on the show. Because of the Monday night fixture we spoke on two occasions. During part 1 we looked at listener questions and discuss the disappointing end to Saints 2020 calendar year, and in part 2 we look back at Saints 1-0 victory over Liverpool on Monday night.

Be sure to give Jacob a follow on Twitter @J_Tanswell and get his writing at Prost International.

The holiday period is a busy time for people in English football. Managing training, matches, family, and your personal mental and physical health becomes even more difficult when the schedule bunches up around the holidays. Dean Hammond knows that, and that’s why we recorded this episode over a month ago. Between his role analyzing Saints matches for the Final Whistle, running Dean Hammond Elite Fitness, raising his kids, being a husband, commentating, and staying in shape, Dean is beyond busy and Leon and I were blessed to be able to sit down with him for over an hour to discuss his career at Saints, lifting a trophy at Wembley, making it to the Premier League, goal setting, answering your questions and more.

A huge thank you also goes out to Will and Leon of Saints Archive. Their patience and passion really help episodes like this come together and it’s a pleasure to work with them!

If you’d like to follow Dean on social media you can do so using the links below, and make sure to check out deanhammondelitefitness.com for more information on how to use the platform to help get the best out of yourself!

With that said, I hope you enjoy the show. Please let us know who else you would like to hear from in the future, and, most importantly, thanks for listening!

Saints welcomed Manchester City to St. Mary’s for a 3:00pm kickoff on Saturday. Despite playing with City for 90+ minutes, losing Danny Ings in the first half, and pinning City back for portions of the match, the visitors left the south coast with all 3 points and Saints saw themselves fall to 7th in the table by the time the week’s matches concluded.

There is a balance between performances and points. Saints won ugly against Brighton, dispatched Sheffield United, let Arsenal off the hook, and went at City with everything Ralph would have expected. The result just didn’t come off. But, at least there’s still Christmas… oh, wait.

Jay Grant, the man behind @Southamptonpage and a partner of the show, joins this week’s show. We’ll discuss the City match and your questions, and consider the impact of Mike Dean and Oriol Romeu’s inevitable coming together, and look ahead briefly to Fulham.

As always, let us know what you think, and thank you again for all of your support over a year that’s treated us all pretty badly.
