I just want to start by saying thank you. To all of you. If you have been a guest, a listener, or a Patron, if you’ve asked a question, written a review, left a comment or shared the show over the past 200 weeks, thank you. When I started the show I never really thought about what it would be like getting to 50, 100, or 200 episodes. It’s been so many different things. I’d rather just keep my head down and move to 201, but the support for the show is a tad overwhelming. So, thank you. I’m proud of the show, not because I’m doing it, but because it’s a little spark of joy in my life and hopefully yours too, and because it’s brought me closer to so many of you and the football team we love. (Enough of this).

This week I’m joined by Dan James to discuss our respective streaks. 259 straight matches for him, 200 straight weeks for me. The highs, the lows, the ridiculous decisions, and our favorite memories. It’s a little more “down memory road” than normal, but it was a fun conversation to have. I hope you enjoy it. If you’d like to follow Dan you can do that @thedanjames on Twitter and Instagram.

A Southampton team missing its talisman and its veteran left-back put on a show on Friday night. The team completely swept Newcastle aside and did so in a way that Steve Bruce’s next detective mystery novel could be all about how a man from Austria came to England and slew all in his path.

Saints finished the night on top of the Premier League table and will spend the international break in a Champions League place. There’s still way too much of the season left for us to become fixated on table position, but we really are playing some impressive football, and, as Freddie says in the show, we need to enjoy it.

Southampton Football Club dismantled Aston Villa for the first 60 minutes of Sunday’s match at Villa Park scoring four beautiful goals and playing some fantastic football as well. The final 30 minutes were an absolute nightmare. From injuries to conceding 3 goals, 2 in stoppage time. However, Saints took the points and gave themselves a chance to go top of the table for at least 1 night with a win this Friday at home to Newcastle. Who knew we would be here after losing 0-9 just a year ago.

Joining me to discuss the match and the impact are the guys from the In That Number Podcast. You can get the In That Number Podcast each week wherever you listen to podcasts and you can get in touch with them on Twitter and Instagram. Their artwork is done by @saintsnewsnow.

We spoke directly after the match, so we knew less about the injuries than we do now. But, hopefully, you enjoy the show. Let us know what you think!

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.

Saints finally did it. There is no substitution for a win, under any circumstances. Do the dirty work off the ball, take your chance, put in the hard yards, and whatever other cliches you’d like to add in, because they add up to 3 points, on the road, at a place, and against a team, that’s been a nightmare for us in recent seasons.

Yes, Burnley were far from full-strength, and, no, they aren’t exactly having a nice time, but I don’t care. A goal for Ings, a win for Saints, and some hope that we finally may be starting to play a little bit of the football we saw at the end of last season (that is probably going too far, I know).

Joining me on this week’s show is the man behind St. Mary’s Musings and a lot of MMA content as well, Jake Hughes. Jake has a new podcast out called 3 F’s, all about Fifa, Football, and Football Manager. You can get it on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts (more links here).

You can get in touch with Jake @JJHughes_ on Twitter and @The3FsPodcast there as well.

Look at this photograph. It shows the final score to our match against Spurs, played at St. Mary’s last Sunday at noon. Saints were cut open by the Son/Kane combo as Hojberg and José Mourinho took all 3 points from the south coast in what was a second-half I would like to forget (and that I woke up at 4:00am to see).

Christian Candler joins me this week to discuss the loss and try to put together how Saints have fallen from grace over the short break, and how they might look to get out of it!

We were all very excited about the start of the Premier League season. And with good reason. Ralph was here, we got KWP permanently, we hadn’t lost at Selhurst Park in several years, and with that, more than 98% of Saints fans who voted on the Athletic’s poll said they were optimistic about the start of the season. But, when the season kicked off Saints didn’t, and they failed to win again on opening day. But, it’s not all doom and gloom, and Tom Murray and I try to take some positives out of a disappointing day against the Eagles.
