Ep. 89- The Reds Leave Us Singing the Blues, with JJ Hughes of St, Mary’s Musings

September 25, 2018

Richard Brereton, you have won a copy of "Being a Saint" from last week's guest.... DM me your address and we'll get it shipped out ASAP! Thanks to everyone who participated!

Saints made the long trip to Anfield and back with nothing to show. A mistake-filled performance against a supremely talented Liverpool side showed why each are where they are in the table. Liverpool have more wins than Saints have points. Saints failed to close down a cross, mark their opposite number on a corner, and help their goalkeeper by coming to clean a shot off the crossbar. We’ve seen these types of things before, and now we’re left with familiar questions from previous years. The mentality of the team, the quality in the squad, the leadership capabilities of management, and more.

Joining me to discuss all of that and more on this week’s show is JJ Hughes, editor of St. Mary’s Musings. JJ’s been here before and will be back on again, and he also writes about MMA, if you are into that sort of thing. Luckily he wasn’t sat ringside for the early knockout of Saints at Anfield, we had the benefit of replay but in the end I think we agree, the judges got it right.

You can get in touch with JJ on Twitter @JJHughes_ and follow @StMary’sMusings, SB Nation’s Southampton Site, for all of your Saints’ news from a fantastic team of writers and a hilarious social media team. You can also visit the website at stmarysmusings.sbnation.com.

As always, thanks for the questions and support, and a special thanks to JJ for chatting with me for 2.5 hour, because dudes can talk on the phone about life and music and sports and it’s totally fine.
