Ep. 41- 2 Goals, 1 Point, and a Lucky Draw, with Richard Brereton

Link to donate to a Saints family who lost their home and possessions in the wildfires currently raging in Northern California. What to make of the return of football to St. Mary’s after the international break… we changed the system, we scored, we equalized twice and came away with a point, but we also fell behind twice to newly promoted, tight-wad Newcastle. There are definitely cracks in the team that need addressing, and supporters...

Ep. 40- Enjoying the Break, with James George, Post2Post Pod, and the Exiled Geordies

I think made the most of my international break. I spent some time with family, ruined a family picture, jumped from a moving vehicle, and a bunch of other things I’m not willing to commit to writing. If you followed my Instagram story I’d like to apologize for what you may have seen. I also used the break as an opportunity to talk with three different podcast hosts about their podcasts, Saints, and our upcoming match against Newcastle. First off, I spoke with James George (@mrjamesgeorge...

Ep. 39- Stunned but Still Stoked, with Chris Hughes and Kirsty Bell

This week I am joined by TWO, yes TWO guests. The first is Chris Hughes, site expert at Saints Marching. He is a Saint loving journalist who brings passion and professionalism to his job and the team. I enjoyed chatting with him and, at least partly because the Stoke match was what it was, we don’t really go play-by through the game, but we cover it all and I think you’ll enjoy it. Links to Chris’ personal Twitter account, the Saints Marching account, and the Saints Marching website are all...

Ep. 38- To United We Fall, But Together We March On, with Dan James

Dan James (@TheDanJames) is a regular guy… if by regular guy you mean an absolute stud who hasn’t missed an away day in 3 years, who coaches and works for the Saints Foundation and who appears almost every week on the Ugly Inside Fan Cams. Dan was kind enough to find time to chat with me after the ManU match about all sorts of things. We kept the recorded conversation to Dan’s background and work, Saints’ latest match, the issues we are facing, listener questions and a bit more. I think...

EP. 37- 3 Points, 3 Points, and Again I say 3 Points, with Blake Hampton

This week Saints went to Selhurst Park and refused to go Dutch, taking all three points from a Crystal Palace side playing their first match under new manager Roy Hodgson. Saints played well for most of the match, with good performances all the way up the spine of the team. I’m joined by Blake Hampton to discuss the match and take some listener questions. You can find Blake on Twitter @SFCBlake and you can get his writing @TheSaintsReport and @EIFsoccer. Blake is fantastic follow, and his...

Ep. 36- No CAM, No Shots, No Service, with Dan Hargraves

Finally, the international break is over. I was anxiously awaiting the end of the break and very much looking forward to the return of the Southampton Football Club… and then we played Watford. I read about it online before I actually saw it, and man was it tough to watch…I spoke with Dan Hargraves, who’s on Twitter @dhargravessfc and who’s YouTube Channel can be found here about it all. If you haven’t subscribed to his channel yet be sure to do so. You won’t be disappointed. Dan and I...

Ep. 35- He Came In Through the Transfer Window

The international break can be a time of boredom, but, luckily for us, the first half of it was filled with the final week of the summer transfer window. Depending on your perspective, that could make it better or worse. I, for one, am glad the window is over. VVD is ours, we’ve reinforced the backline and added to the midfield. However, we didn’t add to the attacking third. The initial results are in and, for this episode, we’re going to talk to 5 different people and get their grades on...

My guest this week is Jack from Saints News and Views, on Twitter @SaintsfcViews. Jack has been running the account since its creation in November of 2012.

Ep. 31- Ewan Campbell is a Saint

My guest this week is Ewan Campbell, on Twitter @EwanCampbell1NI. I first saw him/heard him on @TheUglyInside’s year-end season review last year. Since then we’ve been working to try and find a time to get him on the podcast. He put up with a ton of crap from me, from audio issues to my general lack of any ability to actually host a podcast…Anyway, Ewan deserves a lot of credit for this episode and I promise that next time he is on I will do better. I really enjoyed our chat about the...

Ben’s blog is a bit different than some in that it isn’t updated with every rumor or even with each passing week. He takes on large swaths of time with each post,...

EP. 29- A Nigerian Saint: My Conversation with Tayo Adetoye

I spoke with Tayo Adetoye in mid-June, right around the time Claude Pue was released. When we spoke, I was most interested in his story and experience. I wanted to know more about how he became a fan of the Southampton Football Club, what drew him to pick the Saints over all of the other possibilities in World Football. What became clear as we spoke was Tayo’s passion for the club. I hope you enjoy the interview, and I hope that in this time of relative uncertainty with our captain, the...

Ep. 27- Mental Health in Sport, with Kiko Rodriguez

This week’s show is a bit different. There is no talk of tactics, formations, or transfers. Instead I had the opportunity to speak with Kiko Rodriguez, @KikoRod9, who is, among other things, a founding member of @DRNSport (he also happens to be JRod’s dad, so, yeah). In light of the article on Steven Caulker a few weeks ago, Kiko and I spoke about mental health, mostly about how it is viewed in sport, specifically football, and how our battles with depression impacted our lives. I also...

Ep. 22- A South(American) Saint

Southampton is becoming a truly global club (this has been happening for some time, but I’m slow to this, as I am to most things). A quick check of Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook reveals accounts claiming to support the club from all around the globe. Accounts from Nigeria, Argentina, USA, and Mexico all boast hundreds or even thousands of followers. This week I spoke with Bastian who manages the @Saints_Chile accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. With little more than speculation...
