This week was a weird one. We were absolutely torn apart at Newcastle, as Saints conceded more goals than they had shots on target. The performance was gutless and it caused the likes of Freddie from The Ugly Inside, Adam Leitch of the Southern Daily Echo, and Adam Blackmore of BBC Radio Solent to begin to turn on the entire situation. All three have tried to remain neutral in their analysis and judgment, and although they have been critical in the past, this match really did it.
The same goes for me. I generally try not to be as harsh or critical as some, but this weekend put me over the edge. The manager had to go, and he did! But, Pellegrino didn’t make his way out until my guest and I were done recording, the episode had been edited, and was pretty much set to go out. Nevermind, that, though, I don’t mind doing a little extra work in this case.
My guest this week is Josh, who runs @thesaintsfcpage on Instagram and @SaintsFcPage on Twitter. Josh has the distinct disadvantage of speaking to me after a terrible performance from the squad and the day before Mauricio Pellegrino was sacked. This means that we were at peak frustration levels and as a result the mood can seem a bit dour. But, despite my spirits being lifted by the prospect of a new manager keeping Saints in the Premier League, I know that there are many aspects of the club that are still in trouble and need addressing. Since Josh and I talk about some of them as well, we keep most of the conversation in the episode.
So, as always, be sure to follow along, with us and the Josh, and enjoy and share the show.
