Ep. 30- A Chocolate Chat with The Archers Road End

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.

EP. 29- A Nigerian Saint: My Conversation with Tayo Adetoye

I spoke with Tayo Adetoye in mid-June, right around the time Claude Pue was released. When we spoke, I was most interested in his story and experience. I wanted to know more about how he became a fan of the Southampton Football Club, what drew him to pick the Saints over all of the other possibilities in World Football. What became clear as we spoke was Tayo’s passion for the club. I hope you enjoy the interview, and I hope that in this time of relative uncertainty with our captain, the board, and so on, you can take some solace in knowing that we, as fans, can support one another, and that we can share in Tayo’s passion for the club.

Ep. 27- Mental Health in Sport, with Kiko Rodriguez

This week’s show is a bit different. There is no talk of tactics, formations, or transfers. Instead I had the opportunity to speak with Kiko Rodriguez, @KikoRod9, who is, among other things, a founding member of @DRNSport (he also happens to be JRod’s dad, so, yeah). In light of the article on Steven Caulker a few weeks ago, Kiko and I spoke about mental health, mostly about how it is viewed in sport, specifically football, and how our battles with depression impacted our lives. I also asked a bit about JRod, but that’s not the focus of the episode.

 

If you are looking for a more football/Saints focused episode, we’ll have that next week (or last week, if you missed it). There wasn’t much happening this week, and some things are just bigger than what goes on inside the lines or on the training ground. I hope you understand.

No matter what, just know you are not alone. Find someone to speak with, whether it’s your GP, a friend or family member, a counselor or someone else. Sharing helps lighten the burden more than I can describe.

Speacial thanks to @SAINTSINFRANCE for all of his helo setting up the interview and connecting Kiko and I. This couldn't have happened without you!

We talked about the manager, the departure of JRod, the signing of Bednarek and answered some listener questions. I was also joined by Christopher Lash, on Twitter @rightbankwarsaw, to talk more about Bednarek and see what someone who lives in Poland and engages with Polish football sees and expects from him. Chris runs a website (rightbankwarsaw.com), so be sure to check it out. Also, be sure to give his podcast “Right Bank Warsaw” a listen, available on iTunes and Soundcloud.

Ep. 22- A South(American) Saint

Southampton is becoming a truly global club (this has been happening for some time, but I'm slow to this, as I am to most things). A quick check of Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook reveals accounts claiming to support the club from all around the globe. Accounts from Nigeria, Argentina, USA, and Mexico all boast hundreds or even thousands of followers. This week I spoke with Bastian who manages the @Saints_Chile accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. With little more than speculation on issues surrounding the manger and potential replacements, we focused more on him, the accounts and the personal side of things. We discussed the season and what it’s like to support from Chile, and other issues surrounding the club. I hope you enjoy our conversation and be sure to give Bastian and @Saints_Chile a follow on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. All the links are below.

Ep. 21- Wishlist Thinking, with Josh Kingdom

I was joined this week by Josh Kingdom, @JoshuaKingdom02 on Twitter, who, among other things, writes for @SaintsMarching_. This time of year is a bit weird for fans, myself included. The season is over, we’re uncertain as to who else will be leaving, staying, coming, or going around the club, and yet we’re trying to keep everyone up-to-date with what’s happening. That’s part of what makes Josh’s article so interesting. Amid all the speculation, he’s put together a “wishlist” of players who would fit our system if we lose players and would strengthen our squad if, as Les Reed suggested, we don’t sell everyone this summer. Be sure to check out his articles here and here, give him a follow on Twitter, and enjoy the show.

Also, if you haven’t checked out the player reviews on the Ugly Inside YouTube channel, be sure to do so by clicking here and subscribing… they even have Pablo Zabaleta on an episode (the Jack Stephens episode).
