Ep. 89- The Reds Leave Us Singing the Blues, with JJ Hughes of St, Mary’s Musings

Richard Brereton, you have won a copy of "Being a Saint" from last week's guest.... DM me your address and we'll get it shipped out ASAP! Thanks to everyone who participated!

Saints made the long trip to Anfield and back with nothing to show. A mistake-filled performance against a supremely talented Liverpool side showed why each are where they are in the table. Liverpool have more wins than Saints have points. Saints failed to close down a cross, mark their opposite number on a corner, and help their goalkeeper by coming to clean a shot off the crossbar. We’ve seen these types of things before, and now we’re left with familiar questions from previous years. The mentality of the team, the quality in the squad, the leadership capabilities of management, and more.

Joining me to discuss all of that and more on this week’s show is JJ Hughes, editor of St. Mary’s Musings. JJ’s been here before and will be back on again, and he also writes about MMA, if you are into that sort of thing. Luckily he wasn’t sat ringside for the early knockout of Saints at Anfield, we had the benefit of replay but in the end I think we agree, the judges got it right.

You can get in touch with JJ on Twitter @JJHughes_ and follow @StMary’sMusings, SB Nation’s Southampton Site, for all of your Saints’ news from a fantastic team of writers and a hilarious social media team. You can also visit the website at stmarysmusings.sbnation.com.

As always, thanks for the questions and support, and a special thanks to JJ for chatting with me for 2.5 hour, because dudes can talk on the phone about life and music and sports and it’s totally fine.

Ep. 88- Being a Saint, with Richard Walters

Alright, alright, we’re up 2-0… okay, 2-1 now, but it’s only stoppage time left… and there’s a penalty… Oh… oh! Oh nooooo! We drew 2-2, at home to Brighton. Cool. That’s all I have to say about that for now.

But, as far as this week’s episode goes, we had plenty to talk about. I spoke with Richard Walters, author, businessman, and life-long follower of Saints, about his new book Being a Saint: The Pain, Passion and Pleasure of being a Southampton FC Fan. The book is brand new and is the latest in a long line of books Walters has authored. It may be his first book dedicated to Saints, but it’s a long time in the making and packed full of history, stories, insight and more.

To get your copy of the book head over to richardwaltersauthor.co.uk and get your copy, and if you’d like the chance to win a free copy of the book, head over to Twitter, like the tweet pinned on my page (from 1:30pm BEST Tuesday, 9/18), and give Richard a follow (@RWaltersauthor). We’ll announce the winner on next week’s show.

 

As always, let us know what you think of the show and how we can improve, and we look forward to hearing from all of you.

Ep. 87- Interruptions, Injuries, and Confidence, with Emma Pinner of the Southampton Women’s Football Club

This week I am happy to bring you my conversation with Emma Pinner (@EPinner7), a striker for the Southampton Women’s Football Club. If you have been around and listening to the podcast for a while, you will know that from time to time I get the chance to chat with the players and coaches of the Southampton Women’s Football Club. I’m fortunate to have the chance to learn about the players, their careers, their habits and goals, and it brings me great pleasure to be able to share some of those conversations with you on the podcast. If you do not already support a women’s team in the Southampton area, I encourage you to take some time on a Sunday (or midweek sometimes) and watch the girls play. They are passionate, talented, organized and a joy to support!

 

Emma and I talked about her career, her goals for the season, her injury last year and we also took some questions from her teammates and others on Twitter. We were also interrupted about 100 times, by the dog, and my daughter, and the recorder running low on batteries and more. So, some of that makes it in there and I hope you enjoy a little of the behind the scenes that is in this conversation. Real life was happening right alongside me while I spoke to Emma. If you hate it, that’s fine. Next week will probably be back to normal.

 

Full disclosure, I sponsor a coach of the team and as a result have a small advertisement with the club. If you are interested in sponsoring a player, coach, or advertising, you can visit the contact page on the website, or email the club secretary (email below).

 

A special thank you to the Southampton Women’s Football Club, Amanda Burroughs, Simon Parker, Lee Calendar, and Emma for making this happen. It’s a pleasure and an honor to have to opportunity to work with such a fantastic organization and such amazing people.

Ep. 86- Grounding the Eagles and Bringing Down the Gulls, with Alex Hammond

Saints had quite a bit to celebrate this week, with two wins and two clean sheets in two chances, a number of members called up for international duty, and what seems some budding partnerships on the pitch, the mood and feeling are about as positive as they have been in over a year (maybe excluding the win of Swansea, but that was more relief, I think).

 

Joining me to discuss the win over Brighton in the Carabao Cup and the victory over Crystal Palace in the Premier League is Alex Hammond (@saintshammond). Alex has been on the show in the past and is now working as a member of Eastleigh FC’s media team. We talk his role there, the club, the wins, the work that still needs to be done and more. Be sure to give Alex a follow if you haven’t already!
