This week we are dipping back into the show archive to replay a conversation I had with Kiko Rodriguez back in the summer of 2017. Kiko, on Twitter @KikoRod9, is, among other things, a founding member of @DRNSport and JRod’s dad.

 JRod isn’t the focus of the episode, though the links to Burnley and the upcoming match pair nicely. Kiko had struggled with his mental health for a period and he agreed to discuss it a little bit with me on the show. With so many people struggling with their mental health right now, including myself, I felt it was a good time to put it back in the feed. Hopefully, you find it uplifting and encouraging.

Also, a special thanks to Robbie @_SaintsinFrance for originally connecting Kiko and I and arranging for him to come on the show.

The cup success continues for Saints who made easy work of a poor Bournemouth side on Saturday afternoon. There wasn’t much Vitality from the hosts as Nathan Redmond ran riot and had it not been for a few VAR decisions (correct ones, we should note) Saints would have embarrassed the Championship side even more.

Saints will now take on Leicester City in their semi-final at Wembley in April, but Tom Leach of Hampshire Live and I did not know that at the time we recorded. Tom has been covering Saints for Hampshire Live this season and has put up a number of impressive articles and interviews. In addition to discussing Saints, we talk about his career, Journalism, and more. You can follow Tom on Twitter @TomLeachHL

I also jumped on the Oh When the Saints Podcast this week. You can get the show here and follow them on Twitter if you don’t already! Jack and Pat do a great job with their show and newsletter!

Jack runs the Saints News and Views page on Twitter @SaintsFCViews and has done so since he created the account several years ago. Jack has been on the show several times, but unfortunately this time he got stuck with one of the worst performances of the year.

This week he’s here to discuss the losses to City and Brighton. One of them expected, one of them not, and both of them disappointing in their own unique way. If you don’t already follow Jack be sure to do so you are on Twitter and get involved with the discussion about Saints! And, thanks again to Jack for coming on and putting up with my audio issues this week!

Jake Huges gets up earlier for MMA than I do for Saints. The difference is, it’s not him getting punched in the face or kicked in the stomach when the action starts, which is what every match since January 4th has felt like, at least up until now.

Jake is always a pleasure to speak with and I hope you enjoy the little bit we actually put on the show. It’s a tough test for Saints midweek against Manchester City, but hopefully, we can take some momentum into the fixtures that follow.

I’ll be honest. We didn’t wait for the Everton match to record this week’s show. Partially it’s because of it being on a Monday night. Partially it’s because the things Chris Rann and I wanted to discuss don’t hinge on any ONE match- not even on the two matches where we lost a combined 18-0. So, it seemed like a good chance to just sit down and talk about Saints And that’s what we did.

Chris isn’t afraid to say what he thinks, which makes him a lot of fun to talk to. It was nice to get more than a tweet’s worth of info from him at a time, and I hope you enjoy the conversation. If you have comments, let us know. We are both pretty receptive and open-minded… And, for the record, we both want what’s best for the football club. Just like you do.
