Ep. 115- Get With the Program, with Chris Tuck of Non-League Programmes and Saints Programs

*Quick note- the call quality this week isn’t great. I’m not sure why it is, and I’m not necessarily happy about it, but it’s nothing Chris or I did, it just is. So, I’ll likely spend too much time trying to figure out why it was so bad, but I hope you enjoy it. I’ll do better because you, and guests like Chris, deserve it. Sorry*

The international break means no top-flight football for us to enjoy, but it doesn’t mean football itself has stopped. In addition to having the international action, of which Southampton sent several players out to take part, lower league and non-league matches were in full swing.

Given that, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to chat with Chris Tuck, who runs the Non-League Programmes and the Saints Programmes accounts on Twitter. It something fairly foreign to me. I used to save a lot of stuff, but I never really collected much of anything, and I still don’t. So, to hear what inspires Chris to collect, capture, and share his programmes and the programmes sent in by other fans is truly amazing.

Additionally, Chris is attempting to do some charity work around programmes and teaching English, so if you or anyone you know might be interested in that, please get in contact with him @NonLgeProgs or @SaintsProgs. You can also check out all the programs by visiting Chris’ Filckr.

Ep. 114- Enjoying Our Work, with Dave Lee

It’s always a pleasure to be able to meet other Saints fans and record an episode face to face. I love almost every aspect of doing the podcast but the people are the best part, and getting to see and meet people who love the same things I do really sets the experience apart.

Dave Lee lives in Bakersfield, CA and is about the closest thing to Saints supporting neighbor I have. We were both looking forward to meeting, watching a match and recording an episode this weekend, but because of the FA Cup, it wasn’t in the cards. So, we sat down in the press room and had a chat… and went out for beers afterwards. Dave is truly a good friend, a fantastic podcaster, and hugh help and influence to me. I’m truly inspired by him and the work he and his family put into their shows and projects. You can follow Dave on Twitter and Instagram. The links are below.

Ep. 113- Who Needs A Friend? With Rob Maddox

Spurs stole our song, got (most of) the calls from our most recent enemy referee, and controlled the first half. But, we took all three points in a dramatic and impressive second half display. We did it with no striker on the pitch, relying on a teenage right back to crash the back post and poke home the equalizer before JWP beat the World Cup winning goalkeeper from a dead ball.

It was truly a rollercoaster of emotions, but it was so nice to finish on a high. So often we’ve conceded late and lost some of the momentum or (more importantly after 38 weeks) the points. This week, though, we turned it around and we now walk into the three week break with our heads held high.

Joining me to breakdown the match,  JWP’s right foot, Josh Sims face, and Hasenhuttl’s adjustments is Rob Maddox. Rob is a photographer, sport enthusiast, and Saints fan from Bath. In addition to analyzing the match, we discuss how Rob became a fan of the team, his photography process, some memorable moments from his time supporting Saints and more.

Ep. 112- Stuart Attwell’s Unnatural Refereeing Academy, with Jody Rivers

The weekly newsletter from the show comes out each Friday morning. It contains articles and other features that will help you get ready for the upcoming weekend. It’s free, ad free, interesting and easy to read. Just sign up here if you’d like to give it a try.

_________________________________________________________

All things considered, this week was a good week. Saints took three points from Fulham, pulled themselves out of the drop zone, and pushed one of the hottest teams in the league to the brink away from home, and were unlucky not to come away with at least a point. The goals, the grit, a bit of glamour, and some questionable refereeing, and you basically have the week in a nutshell.

Joining me this week to talk about his coaching journey, his love of Saints, and the match against United (we did the Fulham match during the week for Patreon members) is Jody Rovers. Jody is the director of coaches at Matt Le Tissier Natural Coaching (Web, Twitter) as well as his newest coaching venture, Jody Rivers Coaching. Jody’s passion for youth and the sport of football are undeniable, and I really enjoyed getting to hear his perspective on football, coaching, and the turnaround in the team since Hasenhuttl took over.

I hope you enjoy the episode and give Jody a follow on Twitter @riversjodycoach.
