Ep. 128- Celebrating 10 Years of League 1 Minus 10, with Glen de la Cour

*Note- this week's episode contains language I would not use around my grandmother or my children. If you are listening with kids or aloud at work, I'd recommend waiting until you are alone or putting some headphones on... ps. It's totally worth it.*

Glen de la Cour had a 5 year plan. It didn’t involve industrialization or collectivization. Or restructuring of the board or improvements to the training facilities. It was, mostly, document what was happening as Saints aimed to get back to the Premier League. 

Five years came and went, Saints got back to the Premier League, we sold players to Liverpool, lost managers, qualified for Europe, and Glen simply kept writing. We fell from Europe, more players left the club, and still, made some shocking moves at the top of the food chain, and still Glen kept writing. It’s been 10 full seasons, over 645 posts, since Glen started League One Minus 10. The play on the field hasn’t always been pretty, but Glen has been giving it to readers straight since the day he started. The blog is full of opinion, insight, curse words and reactions, and can be counted on to deliver an honest and open opinion of what’s happening on the pitch through the eyes of a man who has been attending matches with his father (and now his father and son) since 1975.

If you don’t follow Glen on Twitter you can do that @L1Minus10, and please be sure to add League One Minus 10 to your reading list. You won’t regret it. Special thanks to Glen for coming on the show this week to discuss 10 years of writing the blog, some team news, and answer some listener questions.

Ep. 127- Standard Hasenhuttl and the Man from Mali with Dan from PremWorldWide

The Southampton Page is the official partner of the podcast. Jay, who runs the page, is raising money for the Macmillian Cancer Support Center, who played a big role for Jay and his family during the last few months of her life. Jay is Braving the Shave, and you can help him and others make a difference in the lives of those living with and fighting cancer. Click here to donate if you can.

This week I’m joined by Dan who runs the @premworldwide on Instagram (you can get him on Twitter @deadlydjenepo) to talk about the announcement of the 2019/2020 fixtures, the arrival of Moussa Djenepo, the recent Sport Bild interview of Ralph Hasenhuttle, LFC’s interest (maybe?) in Alex McCarthy, the possibility of Bertrand and/or Targett leaving, your questions and more.

Get in touch with Dan and I and let us know what you think!

We’ll be back next week to take a look at what has transpired at and around the club.

Ep. 126- More Views on Saints News with Saints News and Views

***Look at this!!!- If you have a special story about spending time with your father or father figure around football (especially Saints), and would like to share it with me for next week's episode, please do! You can record it right on your phone and email it to me, or we can get on Skype and do it if that's easier for you. It's just way to recognize some of the ways sports have helped some of us come together (or how your dad, uncle or whoever, got you into supporting the only team on the south coast that really matters). Anyway, the email your clips to southamtpondellivery@gmail.com or just get in touch however you think is easiest, there is a contact form on the website that gets my attention as well. Thanks- Matt ***

 

The Saints News and Views Twitter account can always be counted on to deliver some good conversation. A debate is always likely, news is always there, and views are often expressed. When I first spoke with Jack a almost two years ago (and again just before Christmas of 2017), it was a whirlwind of learning, at a time when Saints were really struggling to produce on and off the pitch.

This time, the season is over, and Jack and I focus first on running the accounts and podcasts during those tough times on the pitch, and how he approaches the growing support for the page and some of the other things that come with it. From there we move to the Financial Times article that came out this week regarding Gao and investment and such, and move on finally to transfers and your questions.

If you don’t already follow Saints News and Views you should, they are @SaintsfcViews on Twitter and I promise you will be in for a good time when you do!

This was my first official day of summer vacation and I can’t think of a better way to start it off. Special thanks to Jack for coming on (especially with his work schedule) and thanks again to all of you for listening!  You can listen without leaving the page using the player above, or you can use the links here to subscribe in your preferred podcast app.

Ep. 125- Saints. Summer. Signings? With Christian Candler

*Quick note- I stated in the intro that Maya Yoshida would be playing in the Copa America. That isn't true. Sorry. 

This week Christian Candler joins me to bring in the summer. We discuss everything from Charlie Austin in a LFC uniform to the Saints FC players out on international duty this summer. We also talk Women’s World Cup, transfer rumors, Saints pre-season tour and more.

It’s a bit more casual than normal, and that’s because I’m away this week grading exams for AP World History. It’s pretty great.

Follow Christian Candler and be sure to subscribe to the newsletter to get more of Christian’s writing.
