I wouldn’t say Saints surprised us in the last two matches, and they shouldn’t have surprised Manchester United on Monday night either. The gameplan was, at its core, the same. Press. Force Mistakes. Take Chances. Make them beat you. And, it worked. The hottest team in the Premier League since the Project Re-Start kicked off was forced to drop points for just the second time since football came back. Star players were held in check, pockets were picked, and Saints left with a well-deserved point after taking an early lead and then clawing back a late equalizer.  

Joining me to discuss the match this week is Alex Hart (Twitter @hartgarfunkel), a US-based Saints fan that I met (virtually) after Carl Anka captured our shared love of Saints in THIS article in The Athletic. It was fantastic to get to chat with Alex and get his thoughts on how Saints have been playing in recent weeks, and assess what might happen going forward, in this season’s remaining fixtures and into next season.

Alex has also been a guest on the Total Saints Podcast (Ep. 70 and Ep. 106) where he shared his story of becoming a fan of the club in more detail that we go into here. So if you would like to know more about that side of the story, check out those episodes!

Other than that, enjoy the show and let us know what you think!
