Ep. 64- Give Them An (International) Break, with Aidan Small of Fresh Saints

We’re coming to the end of the last international break of the season, and it’s driven me to new lows. We were asked about the most attractive Saints’ manager of all time, and I took that and decided to make a “March Manager Madness Bracket” to find out who the sexiest manager in the Premier League is… If you are reading this sometime before 5:00pm on Tuesday then you should still be able to vote in round 3, otherwise be on the lookout for the business end of the competition and have your say.

 

Before I could come up with anything less spectacular than that, Aidan Small grabbed me and we had a chat about everything from the appointment of Mark Hughes, to the importance of Charlie Austin coming back from injury and the symptoms of Pellegrino that are still plaguing the squad. We also find out why I love Ryan Bertrand and much more on this episode of the show.

 

Aidan Small is on Twitter @MrAidanSmall and @FreshSaints, and you can read writing from him and others on his talented writing team by visiting freshsaints.com. I strongly encourage you to check it out, you’ll be supporting a Southampton local, an aspiring journalist, and a fantastic person with each visit to the site and every time you share an article.

 

This is the last show before I head off to London and Southampton over the next week+. I’ll bring you a special show next week from London, and a very special interview the week after when I’ll be flying home and suffering the worst Jet Lag I’ve very experienced (at least I think that’s what it will be).

 

Lastly, if you haven’t listened to the Saints FC Podcast for this week, you need to. Matt Le Tissier on stage answering questions… here’s the link to the tweet containing the episode. And don’t forget about the Total Saints Podcast either… alright, enough from me.

Ep. 63- Huge News on Hughes with Two Views and You

Episode 63 went from being completely planned (twice) to over-crowded, to a bit shorter than normal, all within the space of a week. In the end, though, I’m more than happy with how it came together and thrilled to have gotten the chance to connect with so many wonderful people in such a short time.

 

The span of the last 7 days (I’m writing this about 7 days and 3 hours after Pellegrino was sacked), I’ve done more guest podcasts and TV appearances than in the past 2 years combined. Add to that I was on the road for work, and sharing a room with a friend of mine (who loves me plenty, but has little patience for me getting up at 4:00am to edit or stay up until midnight to record). Nonetheless, this week we have two separate, shorter interviews, and 4 voicemail messages sent in from listeners reacting to the hiring of Hughes and the win in FA Cup Quarter-final clash against Wigan.

 

The way the show is structured this week is a bit different. First we’ll have a listen to some fan opinions on the hiring of Hughes, then speak with Saints’ fan and fellow Podcaster Dave Lee (on Twitter @AODavelee) about how he became a fan, the season and the hiring of Hughes. Originally Dave and I were supposed to watch the Swansea City match and record a full episode with all the normal stuff while we were at a conference in Southern California. But, when the Swansea match was postponed and our cup match moved to Sunday, we had to settle for an abbreviated chat. We talked for much longer, with no mics around, and enjoyed a few beverages as well (getting ready for the trip to England, in my opinion).

 

I also had the chance to chat with a podcaster and presenter I respect very much. Jim Salveson hosts and writers “On the Left Side: The Alternative Football Show” along with Ant McGinley, for Abrupt Audio.I spoke with Jim a bit about his show (iTunes link here) and about his thoughts on our new manager Mark Hughes. Lastly, I was lucky enough to get a voicemail from Dan Jarvis (I won’t lie, I actually asked him to send it in) with his thoughts on the Wigan match… it’s perhaps the most concise and on-point any guest has ever been.. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t there asking him a ton of questions. Whatever, though, he and his dad will be on at some point in the future, and I’m truly looking forward to it!

 

I also joined The Independent Republic of Soccer Podcast,  with Conal McCourt (Twitter at @Conall_Mcc) to discuss Hughes, Pellegrino, the season and more. Check it out here.

Ep. 62- Championship Manager (out), with Josh of The Saints FC Page

This week was a weird one. We were absolutely torn apart at Newcastle, as Saints conceded more goals than they had shots on target. The performance was gutless and it caused the likes of Freddie from The Ugly Inside, Adam Leitch of the Southern Daily Echo, and Adam Blackmore of BBC Radio Solent to begin to turn on the entire situation. All three have tried to remain neutral in their analysis and judgment, and although they have been critical in the past, this match really did it.

 

The same goes for me. I generally try not to be as harsh or critical as some, but this weekend put me over the edge. The manager had to go, and he did! But, Pellegrino didn’t make his way out until my guest and I were done recording, the episode had been edited, and was pretty much set to go out. Nevermind, that, though, I don’t mind doing a little extra work in this case.

 

My guest this week is Josh, who runs @thesaintsfcpage on Instagram and @SaintsFcPage on Twitter. Josh has the distinct disadvantage of speaking to me after a terrible performance from the squad and the day before Mauricio Pellegrino was sacked. This means that we were at peak frustration levels and as a result the mood can seem a bit dour. But, despite my spirits being lifted by the prospect of a new manager keeping Saints in the Premier League, I know that there are many aspects of the club that are still in trouble and need addressing. Since Josh and I talk about some of them as well, we keep most of the conversation in the episode.

 

So, as always, be sure to follow along, with us and the Josh, and enjoy and share the show.

Ep. 61- A Pointless Draw, with Rob Adam Evans of Fresh Saints

This week I’m joined by Rob Adam Evans to discuss the scoreless draw that took place at St. Mary’s  against relegation rivals Stoke City on Saturday. Despite the storm that blew in and brought snow to much of England in the days leading up to the match, volunteers and the staff at Saints gave it their all to make sure fans could get safely to and from the stadium.

 

Rob and I didn’t talk all that much about the snow or the walkways, but we did look at the match and discuss the few positives that were there, the impact it had on our standing in the table, and what we need to do going forward in order to remain in the Premier League.

 

Rob was fantastic to chat with, and I hope you enjoy the hour or so of our two hour conversation about the team and life in general that made it into the podcast. Rob is on Twitter @RobAdamEvans and writes for @FreshSaints. You can find his articles and many more at freshsaints.com, and if you haven’t done so yet I encourage you to check it out. The articles there are top notch.

 

Here’s an example of some of the work you will find there from this week’s guest. A Positive look into a fairly dark time at the club. CLICK HERE.
