Saints knocked off Everton on Sunday afternoon, protecting Arsenal’s Invincibles for yet another year, and yet somehow failing to avoid the “they lost 0-9 a year ago. They’ve come a long way since then…” tropes from pundits and commentators alike. It was one of the best performances I can remember from a Saints team. From creating chances to defending set-pieces to controlling the game up by two goals and, eventually, with a man advantage. I expect Saints to press everyone we play, to disrupt the flow of the game, to put it maximal effort. But I didn’t expect Saints to show some other sides of the game. The team is growing, Ralph is molding them, and they are a lot of fun to watch.

Matt Beling joined me after the match this week to talk through the main points including both goals, the red card, and Nathan Redmond’s MOTM performance (I don’t know about that one, honestly). We also discuss Matt’s new podcast, the 3PL Podcast (Google Podcasts and Spotify), and, as always, you can follow Matt on Instagram @wearesouthampton for more great coverage of the team and fantastic edits and graphics.

Saints went to London and, with Chelsea, put on a show… for the 0 fans in attendance, the international audiences who watched for almost nothing, those in the pubs down the street from the stadium and around England, those who listened on the radio, and the few who decided to pay up the £14.95 to watch from home.

and the few who decided to pay up the £14.95 to watch from home.

It wasn’t a match you’d show your kids and say “go do that.” Especially if said kid is a defender or goalkeeper, but it was entertaining for most of the 90 minutes. Of course, it’s a bit sweeter given we scored the stoppage-time equalizer, but it was an extremely exciting point for Saints complete with debuts, returns, late goals, and more.

Joining me to discuss it all is Alex Hammond (on Twitter @alxhmnd21) who has spent time covering Eastleigh and other sporting events around England. Alex joined me some time ago after Abdoulaye Doucouré punched us all in the nether regions when he handled the ball into the goal to earn Watford a draw a few years back… (pre VAR).

This week I am proud to present the first-ever collaboration between the Saints Archive and this show, as we team up to continue the work they started with the Total Saints Podcast and bring you Total Recall. In our first edition of Total Recall, we spoke with former Saint Malcolm Waldron, who played his football for Saints in the late 1970s and early 1980s, before moving on and eventually being forced to retire due to a knee injury.

It’s always exciting to try something a little bit different, but the best part about doing this show (and part of the reason I started the podcast) is meeting, listening to, and learning from so many great people. Malcolm, Leon, and Will all deserve a lot of credit for this one, I just recorded it… and it’s an honor to have done so.

With that said, I hope you enjoy the show. Please let us know who else you would like to hear from in the future, and, most importantly, thanks for listening!

We’re all about positivity this week. The only negative is my COVID19 test results so there’s no need to quarantine, and with Saints getting a 2-0 win this weekend, there’s no need to socially distance myself from the result either.

Saints managed a fully competent performance on Sunday afternoon. Aside from a 15-minute spell to start the second half, Saints controlled the game in its entirety. They created chances, took 1 nicely, karate kicked another, and had a few more chances to add to the total. In the end, a fairly comfortable performance, albeit one that can still be improved on.

Joining me to discuss the match on this week’s show is Steve Forbes on Twitter (@forbesypresents) and Instagram (@forbesypresents). Steve is one of the matchday presenters at Southampton FC. He left the live pre-game show and the Final Whistle Podcast recording to come join me for this show, and for that I thank him. He went from sitting across from Kenzie Benalie and chatting with Joe Prince-Wright and Dean Hammond to looking at my bald, up-since-4:00am, bags under my eyes having self. He’s basically a Saint.

We talk about the match and a bunch of unrelated stuff, but I’ll take the blame for that. I had plenty of medicine before, during, and after the recording, so things got a little loopy. If you would like to listen to the Final Whistle Podcast put out by the club, you can do so on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
