Ep. 137- Delightful Djenepo. Beautiful Boufal. Bright in Brighton. With Ben Hernandez-Stroud of The Archers Road End

First clean sheet of the season. First goal for Djenepo. A debut for Danso. A back post tap in for Redmond. An assist for Boufal and a win for Hasenhuttl. 

Saints made difficult work against 10 man Brighton on Saturday. But, at the end of the day, a win is a win and 3 points on the road is nothing to sneeze at. Joining me to discuss the match, the arrival of the new opposition video analyst/assistant coach, Forster’s return to Celtic and more, is Ben Hernandez-Stroud of the Archers Road End. Ben is on Twitter @archersroadend as well as on Instagram and Facebook. Ben is currently taking a break from writing the blog, but when he comes back, you’ll want to make sure you are in touch with the blog. Until then, Twitter will have to suffice. 

Special thanks to Ben for coming on the show. It’s always great to catch up, and I can’t wait to do it again.

Ep. 136- Lucky Little Liverpool, with Jay Grant of the Southampton Page

Saints fell to Liverpool at St. Mary’s over the weekend, a result that will come as a shock to absolutely no one in the football world. It leaves Saints with no points and only one goal scored through two Premier League matches, with two more fixtures coming before the first international break of the season. Saints, however, did play well for large parts of the match, dictating the game for long periods, and looking on par with Liverpool (even if they weren’t at their best). The game featured a lot of missed chances by both sides and Saints eventually walked away with positives to build on but no share of the points.

Joining me this week to discuss the match and some new developments in coverage is Jay from the  Southampton Page. The Southampton Page is the official partner of the show and just launched its YouTube Channel earlier this week. The first Matchday Experience will be up late on Saturday night after the Brighton match, but you can subscribe right now to make sure you don’t miss it (plus there’s an intro video there for you already). 

As always, thanks to Jay for all the support and for joining the show once again! And, thank you for listening! Your support is most important and it truly means a lot!

Ep. 135- Banged In Burnley, Now for Plan B. With Luke Osman of Read Southampton

The best laid plans…

After a pre-season that couldn’t have gone any better in many respects. The style of football developed greatly, the team seemed to jell. Players worked their way into and out of the team (Hi Charlie, Mario… and wherever you are Guido). The training trips, the warm weather, the pre-season matches, everything seemed to point towards Saints being better than they showed on Saturday. But, Saints are also much the same team (in terms of squad composition) as they were last year, and Saturday’s performance at Burnley showed it.

Luke Osman joins me this week to discuss the disappointing start to the season, as well as look at some changes happening around Read Southampton. We also answer some of your questions (thanks for sending them in) and more. 

If you don’t do so already, give Luke and Read Southampton a follow on Twitter, or send him an email if you are looking to potentially write for Read Southampton.

Ep. 134- It’s All Fun and Game Until Burnley Away, with Lucy, Jake, Bob and Luke

The 2019/2020 season is almost here. Saints have had their first pre-season under Ralph Hasenhuttl, they’ve brought in a few attacking options, they’ve looked, for the most part, good during pre-season. But, at the time of recording (July 29, 30, and August 1), there were no additions in defense, which is something several of this week’s guests key in on.  

For this episode, I’m joined by 4 guests, Lucy Highnett, Jake Hughes, Bob Brown, and Luke Osman. We run through a range of questions from the assessment of pre-season and the transfer window to predictions for a number of categories for the coming season. Be sure to give this week’s guests a follow and give their various projects a follow and/or listen when you get the chance. Also, let us know what you think of the episode and what your predictions are for the coming season.
