Saints went to London and, with Chelsea, put on a show… for the 0 fans in attendance, the international audiences who watched for almost nothing, those in the pubs down the street from the stadium and around England, those who listened on the radio, and the few who decided to pay up the £14.95 to watch from home.

and the few who decided to pay up the £14.95 to watch from home.

It wasn’t a match you’d show your kids and say “go do that.” Especially if said kid is a defender or goalkeeper, but it was entertaining for most of the 90 minutes. Of course, it’s a bit sweeter given we scored the stoppage-time equalizer, but it was an extremely exciting point for Saints complete with debuts, returns, late goals, and more.

Joining me to discuss it all is Alex Hammond (on Twitter @alxhmnd21) who has spent time covering Eastleigh and other sporting events around England. Alex joined me some time ago after Abdoulaye Doucouré punched us all in the nether regions when he handled the ball into the goal to earn Watford a draw a few years back… (pre VAR).

This week I am proud to present the first-ever collaboration between the Saints Archive and this show, as we team up to continue the work they started with the Total Saints Podcast and bring you Total Recall. In our first edition of Total Recall, we spoke with former Saint Malcolm Waldron, who played his football for Saints in the late 1970s and early 1980s, before moving on and eventually being forced to retire due to a knee injury.

It’s always exciting to try something a little bit different, but the best part about doing this show (and part of the reason I started the podcast) is meeting, listening to, and learning from so many great people. Malcolm, Leon, and Will all deserve a lot of credit for this one, I just recorded it… and it’s an honor to have done so.

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!

We’re all about positivity this week. The only negative is my COVID19 test results so there’s no need to quarantine, and with Saints getting a 2-0 win this weekend, there’s no need to socially distance myself from the result either.

Saints managed a fully competent performance on Sunday afternoon. Aside from a 15-minute spell to start the second half, Saints controlled the game in its entirety. They created chances, took 1 nicely, karate kicked another, and had a few more chances to add to the total. In the end, a fairly comfortable performance, albeit one that can still be improved on.

Joining me to discuss the match on this week’s show is Steve Forbes on Twitter (@forbesypresents) and Instagram (@forbesypresents). Steve is one of the matchday presenters at Southampton FC. He left the live pre-game show and the Final Whistle Podcast recording to come join me for this show, and for that I thank him. He went from sitting across from Kenzie Benalie and chatting with Joe Prince-Wright and Dean Hammond to looking at my bald, up-since-4:00am, bags under my eyes having self. He’s basically a Saint.

We talk about the match and a bunch of unrelated stuff, but I’ll take the blame for that. I had plenty of medicine before, during, and after the recording, so things got a little loopy. If you would like to listen to the Final Whistle Podcast put out by the club, you can do so on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Saints finally did it. There is no substitution for a win, under any circumstances. Do the dirty work off the ball, take your chance, put in the hard yards, and whatever other cliches you’d like to add in, because they add up to 3 points, on the road, at a place, and against a team, that’s been a nightmare for us in recent seasons.

Yes, Burnley were far from full-strength, and, no, they aren’t exactly having a nice time, but I don’t care. A goal for Ings, a win for Saints, and some hope that we finally may be starting to play a little bit of the football we saw at the end of last season (that is probably going too far, I know).

Joining me on this week’s show is the man behind St. Mary’s Musings and a lot of MMA content as well, Jake Hughes. Jake has a new podcast out called 3 F’s, all about Fifa, Football, and Football Manager. You can get it on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts (more links here).

Look at this photograph. It shows the final score to our match against Spurs, played at St. Mary’s last Sunday at noon. Saints were cut open by the Son/Kane combo as Hojberg and José Mourinho took all 3 points from the south coast in what was a second-half I would like to forget (and that I woke up at 4:00am to see).

Christian Candler joins me this week to discuss the loss and try to put together how Saints have fallen from grace over the short break, and how they might look to get out of it!

We were all very excited about the start of the Premier League season. And with good reason. Ralph was here, we got KWP permanently, we hadn’t lost at Selhurst Park in several years, and with that, more than 98% of Saints fans who voted on the Athletic’s poll said they were optimistic about the start of the season. But, when the season kicked off Saints didn’t, and they failed to win again on opening day. But, it’s not all doom and gloom, and Tom Murray and I try to take some positives out of a disappointing day against the Eagles.

Lucy Highnett (@lucyhighnett on Twitter) joined me on Sunday to help get me (and you) ready for the fast-approaching 2020/2021 Premier League season. From JWP’s penalty spot groundskeeping in Reykjavík to shirt sponsors, TV deals, and transfers, Lucy and I discuss the ongoings, and the hopeful outgoings, of everything around the team. I also admit some pretty embarrassing things and insult Burnley midfielders (that one is for you, Dan), all because we were having a good time.

I always enjoy having Lucy on the show and I look forward to having her back on when the season gets underway. Also, I know there will be people who, after listening to this episode, say “you don’t know anything about this team either.” Fair play to all of you in advance. Also, I promise, I really do love this team.

Lastly, I also appeared on the In That Number podcast this week, if you need some extra Saints FC chat in your life. You get subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Joining me this week to briefly discuss the release of the fixture list and introduce this week’s show is Will Dawe, owner of Saints Archive. We are teaming up to continue the tradition of the Total Recall segment which formerly appeared on the Total Saints Podcast for the past few seasons. This week we are bringing you the original Total Recall interview with a very special guest. Will, Ben, and Leon chatted to the man who played the pass for Bobby Stokes in 76 (and he did a lot of other things as well). Jim McCalliog is held in high regard around Southampton, Wolverhampton, and elsewhere, and he also loves to chat. We’re working on more episodes, and we wanted to bring you this one to whet your appetite. Make sure to follow the Saints Archive on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and at saintsarchive.com

 

*Note- thanks for all of the birthday and well wishes. The fires in California are serious, but they are several hours away from us and all of my family is safe- we're hoping their houses will be too. Thanks to everyone who checked in! Take care of yourselves!

  • Lee and Jodie- 6:18

  • End Credits- 52:11

So much happened this week in the world of Saints, and most of it happened after we recorded this episode. But that’s fine because this week was never supposed to be about Saints. This week we’re focusing on the Southampton Women’s Football Club (Soton Women’s FC) and we’re joined by first-team coach Lee Hurrell and new signing Jodie Burchell.

Between the two of them, we walk through the end of last season, learning from hard times, moving, reaching for goals (and scoring them), and much more. They got their preseason underway in a friendly on Sunday, so be sure to check in with them on their new website and stay up-to-date with them on their push for promotion.

As always, get in touch with the club using the links below. The club and players rely on sponsorships to keep them on the field and their season would be impossible without them. You can also get in touch with Hayley for any media inquires. All links are below.
