Football touches so many aspects of so many people around the world. It strengthens our connections with our friends and family, it divides cities and separates countries. It can both pull us out of and drive us into depression, and it can embody the best and worst of humanity.

Football can be a force for good. This week we spoke with FC Not Alone co-founder Matt Legg about his mental health, starting FC Not Alone and working to help young men better address and care for their mental health through football. Dave Champ deserves special thanks for helping to set this interview up.

Follow FC Not Alone on Instagram - Twitter - and visit their website (fcnotalone.com) to get the latest articles and to find out more about how to get involved. They have been supported by CALM since the beginning, which you can find on Twitter here. Their website is here.

Dave stayed on the line after Matt exited and we discussed the Burnley match for a short while You can follow Dave on Instagram here.

Lastly, I was joined by Stephen of St. Mary’s Statbase on Instagram to discuss the success and focus of the page, including interviewing members of the women’s team. We also discuss the Burnley match further.

It was an episode with a full range of emotions. Something we are all familiar with as Saints Fans.

Thanks for everything!

This week we are dipping back into the show archive to replay a conversation I had with Kiko Rodriguez back in the summer of 2017. Kiko, on Twitter @KikoRod9, is, among other things, a founding member of @DRNSport and JRod’s dad.

 JRod isn’t the focus of the episode, though the links to Burnley and the upcoming match pair nicely. Kiko had struggled with his mental health for a period and he agreed to discuss it a little bit with me on the show. With so many people struggling with their mental health right now, including myself, I felt it was a good time to put it back in the feed. Hopefully, you find it uplifting and encouraging.

Also, a special thanks to Robbie @_SaintsinFrance for originally connecting Kiko and I and arranging for him to come on the show.

The cup success continues for Saints who made easy work of a poor Bournemouth side on Saturday afternoon. There wasn’t much Vitality from the hosts as Nathan Redmond ran riot and had it not been for a few VAR decisions (correct ones, we should note) Saints would have embarrassed the Championship side even more.

Saints will now take on Leicester City in their semi-final at Wembley in April, but Tom Leach of Hampshire Live and I did not know that at the time we recorded. Tom has been covering Saints for Hampshire Live this season and has put up a number of impressive articles and interviews. In addition to discussing Saints, we talk about his career, Journalism, and more. You can follow Tom on Twitter @TomLeachHL

I also jumped on the Oh When the Saints Podcast this week. You can get the show here and follow them on Twitter if you don’t already! Jack and Pat do a great job with their show and newsletter!

Jack runs the Saints News and Views page on Twitter @SaintsFCViews and has done so since he created the account several years ago. Jack has been on the show several times, but unfortunately this time he got stuck with one of the worst performances of the year.

This week he’s here to discuss the losses to City and Brighton. One of them expected, one of them not, and both of them disappointing in their own unique way. If you don’t already follow Jack be sure to do so you are on Twitter and get involved with the discussion about Saints! And, thanks again to Jack for coming on and putting up with my audio issues this week!

Jake Huges gets up earlier for MMA than I do for Saints. The difference is, it’s not him getting punched in the face or kicked in the stomach when the action starts, which is what every match since January 4th has felt like, at least up until now.

Jake is always a pleasure to speak with and I hope you enjoy the little bit we actually put on the show. It’s a tough test for Saints midweek against Manchester City, but hopefully, we can take some momentum into the fixtures that follow.

I’ll be honest. We didn’t wait for the Everton match to record this week’s show. Partially it’s because of it being on a Monday night. Partially it’s because the things Chris Rann and I wanted to discuss don’t hinge on any ONE match- not even on the two matches where we lost a combined 18-0. So, it seemed like a good chance to just sit down and talk about Saints And that’s what we did.

Chris isn’t afraid to say what he thinks, which makes him a lot of fun to talk to. It was nice to get more than a tweet’s worth of info from him at a time, and I hope you enjoy the conversation. If you have comments, let us know. We are both pretty receptive and open-minded… And, for the record, we both want what’s best for the football club. Just like you do.

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!
