Ep. 51- Lumps of Coal, with Saints News and Views

First off, if you are listening to this instead of being with those you love, for whatever reason, consider pausing the episode and calling them, or going in the other room to see them, or texting them or whatever you can do to let them know you love them. That’s what this time of year is all about.

Before Jack and I went on our respective holiday shenanigans, we decided to discuss Southampton, our current form, and the issues we are having at the moment. We discuss everything from poor player performances to manager, the board, recruiting and more. I think you’ll enjoy it, and I’d love to hear about it if you do.

If you re a Twitter user and don’t follow Saints News and Views, you should. It’s @SaintsfcViews and it is well worth a follow to keep up on all things Saints.

We spoke about a Saints fan, Mark Taylor, at the end of the episode. Give him a follow and send him a messge of suport on Twitter. You can find him @Saint_Mark_211.

Ep. 50- Once More, with Feeling, with guest Chris Rann

What a week for the club...2 losses, 0 points, and a -4 goal difference after Claude Puel’s Foxes came to St. Mary’s and ran us ragged, and then we made the trip to Stamford Bridge, only to lose on a cheaply given free kick that Forster failed to get down and block.

 

There’s truthfully not a lot to say, other than the performance against Leicester was unacceptable, and we need to start getting some points, now. The manger shook up the lineup against Chelsea, and spoke of player commitment to the club. It will be interesting to see who gets gametime and who finds themselves on the bench or completely left out going forward.

 

Joining me this week, for episode 50, is Chris Rann (@crstig). Chris runs the website http://georgeweahscousin.com/ and you should make sure to visit from time to time, just to check out the funny and interesting takes he has on the club. It’s worth a visit, even if it’s just for a laugh or two. Additionally, make sure to check back towards the end of the season for the Ali Dia awards. Possibly the best thing on the internet. Special thanks for Chris for joining me again to talk Saints and give his take and opinion on what’s going on at the club.

Ep. 49- To Be a Saint, with Phil Drake and My Very Best Arsenal Friend Josh

Phil Drake, author of To Be A Saint, joined me this week to talk about writing, his new book and the recent happenings with the club. It was a real honor to have him on the show and to get the chance to talk about the history of the club through the eyes of a fan from 1976 to present. This book is almost 20 years in the making, and you can tell. It’s a fantastic story, and it’s beautifully told.

 

Phil has written a bunch of other books as well, both fiction and nonfiction, so do be sure to check them out!

 

If you’d like to get a copy of To Be A Saint you can do so on Amazon. If you’d like a shot at a free copy, make sure to retweet the pinned tweet on my page (here as of 2:00pm Tuesday, 12/12) and follow both Phil (@pdrakeofficial) and I for a chance to win. Additionally, you can like the post for this episode on Instagram (@sfcdell_ivery) and tag 2 people in the comments to give yourself an extra chance to win. Good luck!

Oh, and I also had a conversation with my very best Arsenal Friend Josh on this episode. He’s been my best friend since Kindergarten and most of this is his fault. Not the highest level football conversation we’ve ever had, but I still enjoyed it, and I hope you do too… I caught him and his son recording some stuff as well, and I left some of it in there, even though the kid doesn’t agree with me being a Saints’ fan. Anyway, special thanks to Josh for being there for me for the past 25 years and always providing the encouragement I needed… and also, screw you, Josh, for introducing my to what it’s like to suffer heartache and devastation on a seemingly infinite basis… Josh tweets utter shite, so I’m not posting his account.

Ep. 48- A Long Pointless Trip and a Dive Into Bournemouth, with Aydin Osman of Read Southampton

In a week where Saints’ fans had both one of their longest and shortest away trips if the season, I’m joined by Aydin Osman to help sort out what to make of our performances against Manchester City and Bournemouth. It was a pleasure to speak with Aydin, and although the technology and Skype gods did their absolute best to foil our plans, we managed to talk about a range of things, from our recent team and individual performances, to Pep’s pep talk with Nathan Redmond, a Sterling strike, the possible penalty at Bournemouth and much more (don’t worry, I did cut out the 15 minutes or so we spend talking about internet providers and TV licenses… which I didn’t even know existed). Anyway, I think you’ll enjoy it… and don’t worry, there isn’t an overwhelming amount of stoppage time on this episode. Enjoy it.

 

About a month ago Aydin wrote an article looking back at the year since we played at Inter. It’s a worthwhile read, and the link to it, and the Read Southampton Facebook, Twitter, and Website are all below. Be sure to like, follow, etc, to keep up on your Saints’ news.

 

Aydin’s article can be found here→ “A Year on From Inter: Have the Saints Gone Backwards?”- http://readsouthampton.com/2017/11/05/a-year-on-from-inter-have-the-saints-gone-backwards/
