Ep. 54- Woeful in Watford, with Alex Hammond of Read Southampton and La Liga News

I feel like we’ve seen this, heard this, said this, and written this before, several times, and I’m afraid we’re going to run out of new ways to say, “we sat too deep once we had the lead,” and “where is our leadership on the pitch?” And, “what is Pellegrino doing with his substitutions?”

 

Luckily, my guest for this week’s show, Alex Hammond (@sainthammond on Twitter), writer for Read Southampton and La Liga News), speaks 3 languages, so at the very least he brought some variety.

Alex and I break down the woeful second half performance against Watford, the manager’s decision making, take listener questions, discuss Alex’s writing and fan history, look at how Saints will HANDle that last minute goal from Watford, and more.I hope you enjoy the conversation, and ple ase be sure to check out Alex’s writing- links to the sites are above, and his match report for the Watford match can be found here.

Ep. 53- Ho, Ho, Horrendous Holiday Fixtures, with Cameran Alavi and Harry Holder

***Quick note*** this episode is long. It’s my fault and I apologize. My illness caused me to lose track of what was happening, so please excuse the meandering questioning at times during the interviews. 2018 is beginning a lot like 2017 ended.

 

Episode 53 marks the beginning of the second year of the podcast. We made it 52 straight weeks with an episode. I’m proud of that, but it wouldn’t be a thing, or mean anything, without all of you taking part in, listening to and/or giving feedback about the show. Still a lot to learn and improve on, but this journey has been fantastic so far and I’ve learned a ton from so many of you. Thanks for all of it, and hopefully the team and the podcasts continue to improve (and learn from our mistakes).

 

This week I’m joined by Cameran Alavi, a Saints fan based on the East Coast of the United States. Cameran is a coach and football (yes, we call it soccer) enthusiast. From MLS, to the USMNT to Saints and even a Manchester United connection, he’s in it and on it. We chatted for way too long about the holiday fixtures and what’s going on at the club, and Cameran provided some valuable insight into his chat with Ralph Krueger a few years ago. If you don’t already follow Cameran on Twitter you should be sure to do so @camtotheyams.

 

I’m also joined by Harry Holder (@harryhsfc) of The Saints Report to discuss Saints’ 1-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage in the 3rd Round of the Fa Cup. Wechat the outstanding numbers of traveling fans, the chants, the play, the win and more.

 

With all that said, I hope you enjoy the episode and I look forward to next week. Watford away in the Premier League, and we need points.

Ep. 52- Managing, with Simon Parker, First Team Manager of the Southampton Women’s Football Club

Episode 52 marks the end of the first year of the podcast. 52 weeks, 52 episodes, more than 60 guests and countless hours of audio. It’s been a fantastic experience for more than one reason. Thank you to everyone who has supported in one way or another. This wouldn’t be anything without you.

 

For episode 52 I am away with family. This episode was recorded a few weeks ago with Simon Parker, head coach of the Southampton Women’s Football Club. We talk about Simon’s journey to being the manager, his philosophy on managing the club, the struggles associated with earning promotion in two straight season and fighting for the league lead, and we take some questions from his players (which he didn’t know was happening). I hope you enjoy the chat, and I look forward to speaking with you all again in the new year.

 

A Special thanks to Simon Parker for giving me his time, and to the club for allowing me access to their players and coaches this season. You can follow Simon on Twitter @1swparker. Give him some encouragement as he leads the club into battle each week.

Ep. 51- Lumps of Coal, with Saints News and Views

First off, if you are listening to this instead of being with those you love, for whatever reason, consider pausing the episode and calling them, or going in the other room to see them, or texting them or whatever you can do to let them know you love them. That’s what this time of year is all about.

Before Jack and I went on our respective holiday shenanigans, we decided to discuss Southampton, our current form, and the issues we are having at the moment. We discuss everything from poor player performances to manager, the board, recruiting and more. I think you’ll enjoy it, and I’d love to hear about it if you do.

If you re a Twitter user and don’t follow Saints News and Views, you should. It’s @SaintsfcViews and it is well worth a follow to keep up on all things Saints.

We spoke about a Saints fan, Mark Taylor, at the end of the episode. Give him a follow and send him a messge of suport on Twitter. You can find him @Saint_Mark_211.

Ep. 50- Once More, with Feeling, with guest Chris Rann

What a week for the club...2 losses, 0 points, and a -4 goal difference after Claude Puel’s Foxes came to St. Mary’s and ran us ragged, and then we made the trip to Stamford Bridge, only to lose on a cheaply given free kick that Forster failed to get down and block.

 

There’s truthfully not a lot to say, other than the performance against Leicester was unacceptable, and we need to start getting some points, now. The manger shook up the lineup against Chelsea, and spoke of player commitment to the club. It will be interesting to see who gets gametime and who finds themselves on the bench or completely left out going forward.

 

Joining me this week, for episode 50, is Chris Rann (@crstig). Chris runs the website http://georgeweahscousin.com/ and you should make sure to visit from time to time, just to check out the funny and interesting takes he has on the club. It’s worth a visit, even if it’s just for a laugh or two. Additionally, make sure to check back towards the end of the season for the Ali Dia awards. Possibly the best thing on the internet. Special thanks for Chris for joining me again to talk Saints and give his take and opinion on what’s going on at the club.

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. Additionally, you can like the post for this episode on Instagram (@sfcdell_ivery) and tag 2 people in the comments to give yourself an extra chance to win. Good luck!

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.

 

Aydin’s article can be found here→ “A Year on From Inter: Have the Saints Gone Backwards?”- http://readsouthampton.com/2017/11/05/a-year-on-from-inter-have-the-saints-gone-backwards/

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.
