This week I had the opportunity to speak with Ben Hernandez-Stroud who owns and writes The Archers Road End blog, which you can also find on Twitter (@ArchersRoadEnd), and Facebook (facebook.com/archersroadend/). Ben works in social media, lives in London, and has been a fan of the Southampton Football club since childhood.
Ben’s blog is a bit different than some in that it isn’t updated with every rumor or even with each passing week. He takes on large swaths of time with each post, which means he has to balance length and detail with readability. Something he does with great deftness, in my opinion. I encourage you to give him a follow and give his writing a read each time it comes out.
On this episode Ben and I discuss Ben’s history with the club, his blog, the questions surrounding Southampton’s potential ownership sale, the current transfer window, the match against St. Etienne and more.
