Ep. 168- The Southampton Women’s Season that Was(n’t), with Club Media Officer Hayley Newman

The Southampton Women’s FC season might be over, and the records for the season may be expunged, but it doesn’t mean we have to throw out everything that happened this season. To help us relive some of the moments we don’t want to forget, Club Media Officer Hayley Newman stops by (virtually) to discuss her role at the club, plans for moving forward, some memorable moments on and off the pitch and she even answers some of your questions.

As always, get in touch with the club using the links below. The club and players rely on sponsorships to keep them on the field and their season would be impossible without them. You can also get in touch with Hayley for any media inquires. All links are below.

This week I’m joined by a voice familiar to many of the nearly 30,000 Saints fans that show up each and every home matchday to support the team. Jon Weeks (Twitter @jonweeks5 and Instagram @jonweeks) is the voice of Saints in the ground. As the PA announcer, he gets to be involved in the match while also still getting to support the team during the matches. It’s a different perspective than many of us have, and with the addition of his job on the radio and doing voiceover work, his voice helps give life to so many stories, and so many moments of the football season that we won’t forget… but not that Leicester City match. He wasn’t there for that one. 

Get in touch with Jon using the links below. 

You can also hear him on @thisisheart and @CapitalOfficial every weekday beginning at 5:00am!

Ep. 166- Nobody at Norwich, No Chance to Socially Distance Ourselves from the Pack, with Dave Champ

*With everything that's going on, I completely forgot this would be released on St. Patrick's Day... so, happy St. Patrick's Day.

Things change quickly. Sometimes too quickly. We’ve gone from having matches as normal to having matches with no fans, to not having matches at all. We’re self-quarantining and social distancing, and it’s really left me with a weird feeling. I’m sitting in a classroom with no students. It doesn’t really work.

We do have an episode for you this week, though. I’m joined by Dave Champ (@awayfromhomesaint on Instagram) to discuss the response to the spread of the Coronavirus through our communities and the Premier League, and it impacts on us as fans and the clubs up and down the football pyramid. It’s a little topical, sure, but we do also discuss the refunds given by the club, the financial situation the club is in, the potential sale of the club and we try to find a silver lining in there somewhere.

Lastly, we talk about how we are spending our time and some books that might help keep you company during the layoff. I’m going for The Brothers Karamazov- (For Free Here), but there are several links below to Saints’ related books by authors who have been on the show, and, perhaps most importantly, who are fans of the team.

Ep. 165- Presenting: Life of a Saint, with Michael Kurn

Show Timeline:

  • Pre-Roll SFC USA Event- April 4, 2020, Chicago- 00:00 (link)

  • Intro Music-01:09

  • Intro- 02:04

  • Michael Kurn, Life of a Saint- 4:54

  • Questions- 53:04

  • End Credits- 1:07:47

Some will say Saints dug in and played 10 v 13 on Saturday, and whether you think Graham Scott supports P*rtsmouth or not, or if you think the guys at Stockley Park are out to take back any love we had for VAR, the truth is, we have 9 more matches to get the points we need to be safe. It won’t be easy, but I’m not sure we would want it to be that way.

To discuss the loss to Newcastle and his new book Life of a Saint on this week’s episode is Micheal Kurn (also on episode 116). You may have seen him on matchday in the Southampton FC Fanzone or on Indonesian TV presenting Premier League matches from all over England or heard him on TalkSport, read his previous book Desire Dream Vision or just run into him around town. Even if you’ve never heard from him before, now is your chance. The new book is set for pre-sale on March 27 and will be out, launch party and all, May 9, 2020. Use the links below to get and stay in touch, and thanks as always for listening!

Ep. 164- Across the Pond, to the Bridge and Beyond, with Curt Supple

Show Timeline:

  • Intro Music-00:00

  • Intro- 00:55

  • Curt Supple- 6:48

  • End Credits- 1:28:27

 Things don’t always work out the way we’d like. Saints’ most recent visit to West Ham (and seemingly every time we’ve played them recently) is a case in point. But, sometimes things do go the right way. And when that happens, it’s cause for celebration.

Curt Supple had things mostly work out for him on his visit to see Saints over the Christmas period. He managed to get tickets away at Chelsea and at home vs. Crystal Palace, he saw us win at a top 4 side, and manage a point at home (we don’t get all that many, honestly). Once the vacation was over and he was back in the US, we chatted through his trip. That’s this week’s episode. I hope you enjoy it, and if you are a fan of the team and live abroad, feel free to take some advice from hoe Curt did it…. after all, I’ve only seen us lose at West Ham.

A special thanks for Curt for coming on the show and sharing his time. I enjoyed chatting everything from baseball to football to American football and look forward to doing it again in the future1 You can follow Curt on Twitter and Instagram, he’s @CurtSupple on both platforms.
