 Christian Candler (@candlerneuro on Twitter and @c.ndler on Instagram and his website candler.us) joins me yet again to chat about Saints’ win over Villa last weekend. Saints were dominant for most of the afternoon as Villa very much looked like a side focused on next week’s EFL Cup Final and not their current relegation battles.

It’s always a pleasure to chat with Christian, who's become a great friend over the last several years, and who has achieved so much in the world of both writing and sports coverage and now neuroscience. The conversation is especially sweet when there’s a win to discuss and Shane Long scores with his Smallbone. I hope you enjoy the show, sorry about the sickness in my voice… I tried.

Ep. 162- Blunt Force Burnley, with Dan Jarvis

Burnley came to St. Mary’s and brought with them the weather and a bit of misery as Saints’ fans fought the wind and rain to watch what amounted to a very forgettable match. Other than Danny Ings scoring again (to make it 18 in all comps this year and 15 in the PL), nothing good happened. Redmond was injured in training, Boufal went off early, we let in a goal directly from a corner and had all kinds of possession but no real chances. Burnley had a higher Xg than we did, and even Carl Anka will tell you that’s not supposed to happen. 

Anyway, Dan was kind enough to join me to fill me in on all that he and his father have been up to recently. From doing the 92 to being interviewed by the Guardian and raising money for a couple of local charities along the way. It’s a pleasure and an honor to have Dan back on the show, and, as I state in the show, that episode- Ep. 75- with Steve and Dan, is one of my all-time favorite episodes.

If you’d like to follow their journey, you can. Links are below to their Twitter and Instagram handles, and there are also links to the charities they are raising money for and the just giving page where you can donate if you wish.

Saints failed to progress in the FA Cup and now fins themselves on their shortened winter break with just 1 competition to focus on over the rest of the season. The better team on the day lost according to Jose Mourinho (and just about everyone else). It was tough to take, and even tougher given the injury to JWP, and the Son penalty decision, but Jake Hughes, editor of St. Mary’s Musings, joins me to try to pull some positives out of the whole thing. You can get more from Jake the St. Mary’s Musings team by visiting https://stmarysmusings.sbnation.com/

Enjoy the last few days of the Winter Break. Try to stay safe in the weather wherever you are and let us know what you think about the show (also, leave a review on iTunes or wherever you listen).

A trip to the league leaders, a return to Anfield for Danny Ings, and Kevin Freind out for a kickabout with 11 of his mates. It didn’t end the way we wanted it to, and the final scoreline didn’t necessarily tell the full story. The match showed a few things, though. The team has come a long way since the beginning of their time under Ralph. In recent weeks it’s given us results and helped propel us up the table. There were very few supporters who would have been expecting a result on Saturday, but I think a lot of people walked away (not alone) with the feeling that the team gave it everything. It’s not worth any points, but confidence in what Ralph wants in the coming weeks may prove to be worth a lot against lesser opposition.

Joining me to discuss the match and answer your questions this week is Dave Champ. Dave is a Southampton native who now lives in Ohio. Dave is on Instagram @therealdavechamp. You can get in touch with him there if you’d like. Special thanks to Dave for joining me this week and thanks again to all of you for listening!
