2021 is supposed to be better than 2020. It’s not like the bar was particularly high but we’ve definitely stumbled out of the blocks this January. With COVID infection rates rising, and Saints’ 3rd Round FA Cup match postponed, for now, Chris Hutchings (@hutchfm on Twitter) joined the show to peel back the layers to the onion Ralph cut last week against LFC, as well as the impact of COVID, the youngsters, and the transfer window. As always, let us know what you think.

It’s not everyday Saints knock off Liverpool in the League. In fact, it’s not even every year or every other. In fact, it hadn’t happened since a 3-2 come from behind win under Ronal Koeman’s watch. There were a number of reasons Saints should not have won on Monday night, but none of them matter. The squad depth, the injuries, illnesses, and other calamities that reduced the squad to what it was, Hasenhuttl’s record against Klopp. But, none of those mattered. Saints took 3 points from the defending champions and current league leaders, shooting themselves to 6th in the table, and putting in a performance that brought the big man to tears.

Joining me this week to discuss the match and address your questions is Prost International’s, Jacob Tanswell. Jacob is a longtime Saints fan and journalist and it was a real pleasure to have him on the show. Because of the Monday night fixture we spoke on two occasions. During part 1 we looked at listener questions and discuss the disappointing end to Saints 2020 calendar year, and in part 2 we look back at Saints 1-0 victory over Liverpool on Monday night.

Be sure to give Jacob a follow on Twitter @J_Tanswell and get his writing at Prost International.

The holiday period is a busy time for people in English football. Managing training, matches, family, and your personal mental and physical health becomes even more difficult when the schedule bunches up around the holidays. Dean Hammond knows that, and that’s why we recorded this episode over a month ago. Between his role analyzing Saints matches for the Final Whistle, running Dean Hammond Elite Fitness, raising his kids, being a husband, commentating, and staying in shape, Dean is beyond busy and Leon and I were blessed to be able to sit down with him for over an hour to discuss his career at Saints, lifting a trophy at Wembley, making it to the Premier League, goal setting, answering your questions and more.

A huge thank you also goes out to Will and Leon of Saints Archive. Their patience and passion really help episodes like this come together and it’s a pleasure to work with them!

If you’d like to follow Dean on social media you can do so using the links below, and make sure to check out deanhammondelitefitness.com for more information on how to use the platform to help get the best out of yourself!

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!

Saints welcomed Manchester City to St. Mary’s for a 3:00pm kickoff on Saturday. Despite playing with City for 90+ minutes, losing Danny Ings in the first half, and pinning City back for portions of the match, the visitors left the south coast with all 3 points and Saints saw themselves fall to 7th in the table by the time the week’s matches concluded.

There is a balance between performances and points. Saints won ugly against Brighton, dispatched Sheffield United, let Arsenal off the hook, and went at City with everything Ralph would have expected. The result just didn’t come off. But, at least there’s still Christmas… oh, wait.

Jay Grant, the man behind @Southamptonpage and a partner of the show, joins this week’s show. We’ll discuss the City match and your questions, and consider the impact of Mike Dean and Oriol Romeu’s inevitable coming together, and look ahead briefly to Fulham.

As always, let us know what you think, and thank you again for all of your support over a year that’s treated us all pretty badly.

Last week Saints won ugly. This week they welcomed fans back to St. Mary’s with a dominant, beautiful performance that made all of us smile at least a few times during the 90 minutes. It was an emotional day for many, including the manager himself, and although not everyone could be there, it obviously meant a lot to have fans back behind the team in person. If you were one of the lucky ones to be there in person, congratulations. The other 30,000 hope to join you soon, including Dan from Saints Brass, who joins the show this week. They were not allowed to join in at the stadium this week, and we discuss what the pandemic has been like for them and how football has gone as well. We also chat the Fan Forum and answer your questions. I hope you enjoy it.

 

If you’d like to hear them before then, you can give them a follow on Social Media. They are @saintsbrass on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook and you can also find them at saintsbrass.com. If you missed Dan's first appearance on the show, you can find it here.

We’ll keep this pretty short and sweet. Saints did not play well on Monday night. The second half was better than the first, but neither was very impressive, especially going forward. But, we took 3 points from the AMEX and saw the return of the king. So, we can celebrate those and learn from the rest.

Matt Neuhausen, a Saints fan living in Florida, joins me this week to discuss the match and address your questions. Follow him on Twitter @neuhausenmatt and on Instagram @neuhausen_matt.

Saints lost to Manchester United at St. Mary’s after holding a 2-0 lead going into halftime. It was the first loss since Spurs torched Saints’ high backline for 5 goals in September, bringing an end to an undefeated run that stretched 7 matches (5 wins and 2 draws).

On the day it was disappointing to lose, given the halftime scoreline. But, on the balance of play, I don’t think it was totally unfair. United were better for much of the match, and Cavani’s movement gave our defense a tough time.

Still, there’s plenty to celebrate, including yet another JWP free-kick that was all but perfect and the fact that if VAR wasn’t ruining football we’d be in the top 5. Joining me to discuss the match and his newest project, Lawrie and The Boy’s of 76, is Michael Kurn. We’ll discuss his new documentary which looks back at the 1976 FA Cup Final, developments around the football, and, of course, the United match.

Saints managed a point away to Wolves, Theo got his goal, and Alex McCarthy saved almost everything. It’s a point to be proud of, and probably a fair result. With Thanksgiving just days away, I think I’ll just take the point.

Joining me this week is the host of Serie A Sitdown (Twitter, YouTube) and SchalkeMerica (Twitter, YouTube), Richard Kharman @r_kharman on Twitter and Instagram). Kharman is a longtime Saints fan, podcaster and writer, and is always a pleasure to talk to. Last time he was on the show we discussed hotel gate and Gabbiadini’s late winner at Swansea. This time, we talk the draw, fouls, Romeu, McCarthy and more.

I just want to start by saying thank you. To all of you. If you have been a guest, a listener, or a Patron, if you’ve asked a question, written a review, left a comment or shared the show over the past 200 weeks, thank you. When I started the show I never really thought about what it would be like getting to 50, 100, or 200 episodes. It’s been so many different things. I’d rather just keep my head down and move to 201, but the support for the show is a tad overwhelming. So, thank you. I’m proud of the show, not because I’m doing it, but because it’s a little spark of joy in my life and hopefully yours too, and because it’s brought me closer to so many of you and the football team we love. (Enough of this).

This week I’m joined by Dan James to discuss our respective streaks. 259 straight matches for him, 200 straight weeks for me. The highs, the lows, the ridiculous decisions, and our favorite memories. It’s a little more “down memory road” than normal, but it was a fun conversation to have. I hope you enjoy it. If you’d like to follow Dan you can do that @thedanjames on Twitter and Instagram.

A Southampton team missing its talisman and its veteran left-back put on a show on Friday night. The team completely swept Newcastle aside and did so in a way that Steve Bruce’s next detective mystery novel could be all about how a man from Austria came to England and slew all in his path.

Saints finished the night on top of the Premier League table and will spend the international break in a Champions League place. There’s still way too much of the season left for us to become fixated on table position, but we really are playing some impressive football, and, as Freddie says in the show, we need to enjoy it.
