When you head to a football ground you expect to hear certain sounds. The fans cheering, the chatter in the concourse, chants back and forth between sets of rival fans, etc. They let you know where you are when you are at a match. If you’ve ever been outside of St. Mary’s on a matchday over the last 4 years then you know the added sound that fills the air. Saints Brass welcomes fans to St. Mary’s each and every matchday and have become an integral part of the matchday culture at Saints. 

It was a real pleasure to speak with Dan about the origins of Saints Brass, their duties and rituals on matchday, and the 1-1 against Spurs we were all treated to on Saturday afternoon. If you haven’t had the opportunity to hear Saints Brass, be sure to check them out at the next home match you attend.

If you’d like to hear them before then, you can give them a follow on Social Media. They are @saintsbrass on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook and you can also find them at saintsbrass.com.

Ep. 158- Long Time, Long Distance, Long Shot, with Carl Anka of The Athletic and Mike Smale of MatchdayVlogs

Timeline Notes-

  • Carl’s Interview- 5:10

  • Mike’s Interview- 49:10

This week’s show only has one intro (sorry about that last week), but two guests! I had the chance to meet Mike Smale of the MatchdayVlogs YouTube channel down in LA on Saturday afternoon, so we sat and chatted for a bit and recorded some stuff for both channels. Be sure to check out all of his stuff using the links below.

Then, Monday afternoon, Carl Anka used good old fashioned Skype to join me to discuss the match and what’s happening with Saints during the window.

There’s a lot here, and you may not get to it before Palace, but listen anyway. It’s worth it (in my opinion). Be sure to check out Carl at all the links below and let him know you appreciate his work.

Ep. 157- Nein, Nein, Nein, with Jay Grant of Southampton Page

Saints put in a wonderful performance at the King Power Stadium on Saturday. They won the match. Whatever Leicester were, they were second best. Ralph and company deserve all the credit for how things have gone since the last international break. It’s been a lot of fun to watch the last several weeks… and that hasn’t always been the case, at least for as long as I’ve been doing the podcast.

I’m a little long-winded this week to open the show, and I’m sorry. This episode, episode 157, marks the start of the 4th year of the show, something I am both extremely proud of and truly thankful for. Thank you to the guests, and the listeners and the Patrons and everyone else who has made this show possible over the last few years. That includes the newest Patron of the show, Chris Thomas. I’m a bad person and didn’t read it in the show this week. That’s not great from me, honestly. Next week you’ll hear his name.

Anyway, this week I’m joined by Jay Grant, the man behind @southamptonpage on Twitter and Instagram and the official partner page of the show. We chat about the result, answer some questions and more. Thanks as always for the support, and here’s to another year!

Ep. 156- Leagues, Cups, and Colleges, with Lauren Clark and Erin Bloomfield of the Southampton Women’s FC

The FA Cup is a magical thing. It definitely has it’s problems, as does any competition, but the idea of giant-killing, a new or unique away day, or eventually playing at Wembley means there’s something special about it. This past weekend was the FA Cup third round. Saints progressed (thankfully), but they weren’t the only team in town hosting an FA Cup match.

Southampton Women’s FC hosted West Bromwich Albion Women on Sunday afternoon and progressed via a 3-1 win over higher-league opposition. After Monday’s draw, the team will play host to Crystal Palace Ladies on the weekend of January 26th. Crystal Palace, currently playing in the second tier of English Women’s football, will prove a tough test for Southampton. If you are around the area, please consider attending the match and supporting the team.

Before the team took to the field and beat WBA Women, two of their players, Lauren Clark and Erin Bloomfield, joined me to talk about their careers, their past and future playing careers in America, how their families came to support such crap teams and more. It was a pleasure to chat with them both and although I stumble over some questions, I think you’ll enjoy hearing from each of them.

You can follow Erin on Twitter. @ErinBloomfield9 and Lauren @laurenclark51. Lastly, there wouldn’t be a season at Southampton Women’s FC without the sponsors of the club and personnel. Lauren and Erin both have gracious sponsors which allow them to train, travel and compete in the team. Lauren is sponsored by Rob and Chloe Kerr and Erin is sponsored by One of a Kind Custom Design. If you are interested in sponsoring a player, member of the coaching staff or the team in general, please get in touch with the club secretary (email below). Do not tell them I sent you (they will charge you double<— joke).
