I hate the color blue. I know it sounds like something a 7-year-old might say, but I’m 32 and I’ll stand by it. Football shirts are divided into to major categories, red shirts and blue shirts… there are the occasional teams with other colors, I realize this, but they are the exception to the rule. Anyway, I’ve disliked Chelsea for sometime, given my best friend is an Arsenal fan it’s not hard to image my disdain for the blues. To be honest, I was shocked when Giroud went from Arsenal to Chelsea. He looks better in red, that’s all I’m saying.
Anway, Chelsea x2 and Leicester City (both blue) combined to remove Saints from the FA Cup and push us closer to the Championship in the past week. The team’s performance has varied from silky smooth, free flowing moves, to incisive counter attacks, to calamitous defending and 10 minutes of not knowing which way was up. It’s been a testing week, but also a week in which some Saints’ fans traveled from around the world to witness the FA Cup Semi-final in hopes of seeing us lift a major trophy for only the second time in club history. We all know now it was not to be, but to recap the match, the day, and discuss what it means going forward I have 4 separate guests joining the show.
I talk with Ben, from England, living in the US, who made the trip to London for the match. My good friend Alf. Jay, who runs the Saints Report, and another friend Jem who does a lot of things including a YouTube channel with good, though infrequent matchday Vlogs. You can follow the guests on their social media profiles below, if you wish, and I want to be sure they know how much I appreciate them taking the time to chat with me. Thank you!
Hope you enjoy the episode. As always, let us know what you think!
