Ep - 31 - Duncan Alexander - Pellegrino Sacked

John and Tom are joined by Duncan Alexander, author of Outside the Box and the brains behind Opta Joe. We reflect on Pellegrino's sacking as manager of Southampton and have a look at what our chances are of surviving relegation. Duncan has some surprising statistics for us from his work at Opta, ranging from how Saints are an outlier in terms of performance in the Premier League right that way through to proof of Francis Benali being a lunatic! XG is explained much more coherently by...


Ep - 30 - Saints Draw with Burnley and Stoke

In episode 30 of the Saints FC Podcast we discuss the last two results in the Premier League as we pick up two points from two big opportunities for Saints to press ahead and win some matches! In amongst the usual doom and gloom we try and work out Carrillio's abilities as a striker, Gabbiadini's goal and the return to the starting 11 of Josh Sims. We try and work out what reasons to be cheerful we might have, and have a message of listeners who may be considering switching allegiances if...

Ep 25 - Saints Draw with Spurs and Watford

John Bailey and Tom Parker meet up for another episode of the Saints FC Podcast. The draws against Watford and Tottenham come under scrutiny, as does Pellegrino (again), his in game management, surrendering points from winning positions and the lack of activity in the transfer window. We go through a lot of listner correspondence, have a closer look at Michael Obafemi, Saints 17 year old debutant, and have a look forward to the games against Watford in the FA Cup and Bighton at home in...


Ep - 24 - Start of Saints FA Cup Run

John and Tom are back to review Saints last three fixtures, including the honourable draw at Old Trafford, the disappointing loss at home to Crystal Palace and the 3rd round FA Cup win against Fulham. Is Pellegrino better against the big sides than against the sides we should be beating, how have we lost another must-win game at home, and are we harsh to say that the win against Fulham was unconvincing? Does Pellegrino have a plan B, is his in-game management good enough, what is he...


Ep - 23 - Michael Svensson

John is lucky enough to get a chance to speak to Saints legend Michael Svensson about his time at Saints, getting to the 2003 FA Cup final, playing for Gordon Strachan and a whole host of other topics as we discus his career. We get a chance to put some listener questions to Michael, including whether he would prefer forks for arms or spoons for legs! Thanks to Les' Lamborghini for that one! If you want to contact the podcast, do so in twitter @saintsfcpodcast or email...


Ep - 22 - Bah Humbug! 1 point in 3 games!

Saints try and ruin the Christmas spirit with a disappointing run of fixtures, where losses to Leicester and Chelsea is followed by a failure to take three points at home vs. Huddersfield. John is on the Isle of Wight staying with the outlaws, fortunately Mike (John's father in law) is a Southampton fan as well, so is able to step into Tom's shoes and discuss Saints form over three disappointing fixtures. Leicester City, Chelsea, Huddersfield, Claude Puel, Van Dijk and Pellegrino are...


Ep - 21 - Saints FC Podcast - Charlie Austin Four in Four

Episode 21 of the Saints FC Podcast covers the last five Southampton Premier League games, from the abysmal loss at Anfield, to the many reasons to be cheerful and hopeful from the games against Everton, Man City, Bournemouth and Arsenal.

Austin has some extra special love from the Saints FC Podcast for his...

Ep - 19 - Dean Hammond

John catches up with former Saints captain Dean Hammond, who led Southampton on the field through three fantastic seasons that saw Saints win the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, and secure back to back promotions from League 1 to the Premier League.

Dean tells the podcast about what he considers his career...


Ep - 18 - Saints lose to Burnley and draw with Brighton

Tom and John discuss the disappointing loss at home against Burnley and the (ahem, yes) disappointing draw way at Brighton & Hove Albion. Unfortunately this is not a cheery podcast as we try and work out why Saints results have been so poor. Whether Southampton have desreved to be on the receiving end of the results and whether Match of the Day's new statistic XG can provide an insight into what has been happening.
