Ep. 111- It’s Not All Bad, Emirate? With Christian Candler

Arsenal is a big match for me. My son and my best friend both support the Gunners. We’ve given them fits in the past, and took three points off them earlier this season. Sunday didn’t go that way, and after going 2-0 down early, I decided 6:22am was the appropriate time to open up my good friend Mr. Guinness…fast forward, through the second half and past the Sunday school lesson I assisted with, by the podcast recording and homework, and you wind up with me taking NyQuil and attempting to edit. There’s a few minutes in the middle of the episode I don’t remember editing, so it should be a surprise to everyone.

What wasn’t a surprise, though, was my guest, Christan Candler (on Twitter @candlerneuro and his writing is available at candler.us). Christian was, as always, level-headed and calm in his approach to the match, and it was exactly what was needed as we tried to deal with the Arsenal result (and him having to deal with me).

We discuss everything from the Arsenal result to the board’s spending in recent windows, the role of social media, #PuelOut, your questions and more.

We’ll be back with a Patreon only episode after Fulham and a free Newsletter will be in your email inbox on Friday morning, all you have to do is sign up).

Ep. 110- A Different View, with Tom Murray of Alan March Sport

***Note, the weekly newsletter went out for the first time last week. If you are interested in signing up to get it, you can do that here. You can also read last week’s by clicking here and enjoy the website at southamptondellivery.com I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think!

 

The Premier League took a break this weekend while the fifth round of the FA Cup took place. Due to Saints exit from the competition against Derby County in the third round, Saints spent a week training in Tenerife where, by all accounts, they worked hard everywhere from the training pitch to the film room to the gym. I, and I’m sure almost everyone reading this, hope that Saints can take a good week of training into, yet another, important run of fixture, with three matches coming in the space of seven days beginning with Arsenal away on Sunday.

With that all said, this week I caught up with Tom Murray (on Twitter @T214Murray), who is part of the team of commentators that provide audio commentary for blind and partially sighted fans at all Southampton home matches. Tom and the rest of the team are all trained volunteers who do each game under the guidance and planning of Alan March Sport (Twitter) who provide a range of similar services across many sporting grounds in the UK.

Tom, who is a Southampton fan, discuss getting involved with the program, how he goes about his work, discuss some memorable moments, answer some listener questions and more. It was truly a pleasure to speak with someone who was as passionate about Saints and his volunteer work as Tom. If you haven’t connected with him yet I would encourage you to do so!

If you or someone you know are interested in the audio description service provided by Alan March Sport for Saints FC home matches, please visit the website HERE and reserve your audio receiver for the next home fixture.

Ep. 109- We’re Still Learning, with Kurt Zottl of the BSO Show

*News: The show has a new website as a result of the support of the Patrons at patreon.com/sfcdellivery. Their support helped launch southamptondellivery.com, where you can find past and present episodes of the show, sign up for the weekly email newsletter- with one featured article per week, guest and show updates and more, delivered to your email inbox once a week. I’m really excited about both of these additions to the show, and hope you both enjoy them and get some value out of using them. Let me know what you think, please… okay, now for the rest of the stuff...

Question: What do you get when you play a relegation rival in front of your home crowd, have ⅔’s of the possession, and have more attempts on target than the other team has total attempts, and score in the first minute of stoppage time?

Answer: A statistically dominant, yet unconvincing, performance… oh, and 0 points.

Saints failed to impress at the weekend, looking bereft of ideas and lacking creativity and spark at St. Mary’s on Saturday. The lackluster performance was made worse by a late giveaway, followed by a poor headed clearance and a goalmouth scramble, that saw Saints drop 3 points at home to Cardiff, who did the double AND jumped Saints in the table. Saints now sit in the relegation zone on goal difference, but only 3 points from 13th… it’s not all bad, but it’s far  from good, and the rest of the season is going to be wild.

Joining me to talk about the match, his podcast, take listener questions and more, is Kurt Zottl. Kurt is on Twitter @kurtzottl, and his podcast is on Twitter and Instagram @thebsoshow.

 

Hopefully the show leaves you feeling better than the ending of the match.

Ep. 108- Even Stephens, with Dan Adam of PremWorldWide

Daryl Grove gofundme- https://www.gofundme.com/team-daryl-grove

Saints had a busy week (incoming transfers on deadline day aside) this week with the team hosting Crystal Palace midweek before traveling to Burnley for a 3:00pm GMT kickoff on Saturday. Saints entered the week even on points with both teams, and although the team drew both games, in the end the results were probably fair, all things considered. The team took two points from the matches, inching away from the relegation zone, remaining unbeaten in 2019, and somehow fans are still a little worried and found time to criticize some of the players, mainly Jack Stephens for a handball late on Saturday.

All of that takes center stage on this week’s show when I spoke with Dan Adam, a Saints’ fan living in Malaysia (on Twitter @TwentyTwoRole and owner/admin of @PremWorldWide on Instagram).Given the time difference, we recorded the episode while about 60% of you were sleeping (That’s you, UK listeners), and I put together the rest of it before the “big game” here in the US so I could spend some time with my family, who really love American Football. Until the late touchdown I had more beers than there were points scored, and my attempt to continue the streak has made this writing a tad bit more difficult than normal.

Anyway, if you don’t follow Prem Worldwide, you should. Dan does a great job and it’s a lot of fun to interact with the account and see some of the stuff he posts. Here→https://www.instagram.com/premworldwide/

Enjoy the show, and thanks as always for taking the time to listen!

Ps. I'm a morning person. We recorded late at night. I drank lots of coffee. It didn't help. I apologize.
