Ep. 98- Paying the London Price, with Dan James

Dan James is, in my eyes at least, pretty remarkable. I first contacted him over the summer of 2017, while walking around the backyard of my in-laws trying to find guests for the show without my wife realizing that the real reason I wasn’t in the pool with the kids was because I wanted the next 6 guests lined up before I “enjoyed” myself (after writing that I realize, nobody needs to know that… and in reality nobody cares). But, from that one message, he agreed to come on the show in September and I was blown away by his commitment to the cause.

 

Fast forward to April, when I was over in London, and after a battering at the London Stadium, Dan met Freddie (from the Ugly Inside) and I for a few beers after the match near Waterloo Station… It may not sound like a lot to you, but it meant a lot to me and it’s something I will forever associate with Dan… that and the fact he’s attended almost 200 consecutive competitive Saints matches (and still made time to chat with me about Fulham).

 

This week we talk about the loss to Fulham, the positives in Armstrong and the team  really dominating play for the majority of the game, but we also discuss the poor defending, the attitudes of some of the players, and the team’s inability to hold on to a lead, and more. I also ask about the stadium and the pubs, but that’s mostly because I’m American and I’d like to have a good day out next time I’m over.

 

Anyway, if you don’t already follow @thedanjames on Twitter or Instagram you should. You’ll see lots of Saints stuff and some other endeavors as well. He’s always up to talk football, so if you see him, whether he’s out or working, don’t be afraid to have a chat.

Ep. 97- We Are One Club, with Becky Harris of the Southampton Women’s Football Club

It’s almost Thanksgiving here in the USA. It’s my favorite time of year, it’s better than Christmas or Halloween, or even Easter. It’s a time to reflect, a time to remind ourselves of all that we have that is good, and a chance to surround ourselves with those people we love the most.

 

When I spoke with Becky Harris, senior player for the Southampton Women’s Football Club and current reserves player, the way she spoke about the team and how they were there for each other when the club was going through tough times, how the pushed each other to get better, and encouraged one another to get better, it just reminded me of exactly what a team should be, and who we should surround ourselves with. Becky and I spoke about a lot of things, from her family and sports growing up, to playing football, the gym, work, life, and more, but the one thing that stood out, the one thing I really took away from the time we spent on Skype, was just how special the club is.

 

I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did, amd a special thanks to Becky (@becky4h) and the club for making it happen! Also, shoutout to @EliteFootballDC who sponsors (end employs) Becky!

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 Becky 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. 96- Now There’s Less Reed, with Tim Marshall

This week Tim Marshall joins me to reflect on the past week at Saints. Tim, who’s been on the show before, kindly joined me last minute, when my scheduled guest woke up ill (ps. Hope you get better soon, very much looking forward to having you on soon)!

Tim jumped in and we recorded a show that had a lot to break down. Considering the week that was with Les Reed departing, Martin Hunter leaving, Ralph Krueger’s interview with Adam Leitch and more. Then, we get to the actual match against Watford, where some sort of Sunday League Referee wound up on the pitch and made a mess of it all.

Tim and I also discussed the events that took place ahead of Remembrance Sunday, with the enhanced focus on WWI and the contribution of Southampton as a city, as the day of recording marked 100 years since the end of hostilities.

In all, I hope you enjoy the show, despite the long length, and we’ll be back next week with more. Follow Tim on Twitter @timjmarshall and on Instagram at the same handle.

Ep. 95- You’ll Never Guess How This Ends, with Aydin Osman

First things first, this week’s episode contains some adult language. I’ve beeped it (at least most of it), but be warned.

Moving on...I’m not really a “win at all costs” type of person. But I am, without a doubt, someone who believes in working your absolute tail off, day in and day out, putting in extra time to improve and get better each and every day. To the point where I find it easier to criticize someone like Pogba over Shane Long. In fact, I’d take Long on my team over Pogba all day. I know it doesn’t make any sense at all, and it might be petty and stupid and short sighted, but there are some things I respect and some things I can’t and won’t tolerate… with that said, my goodness do we need to score some goals, and play defence, and really just get things sorted out. The display at the Etihad was atrocious, and the team desperately need to turn things around.

 

This week I spoke with Aydin Osman who was at the match, and we discuss it, take some questions, regarding the team, and the management, and everything else. You can follow Aydin on Twitter @Aydin_Osman96 and on Instagram @aydinosman96.
