124- 2018/2019 Season Review Part 2, (Re)Living the Dream
May 28 • 84 min

122- Huddersfield. Humbled. Hasenhuttl. With Jay Grant of the Southampton Page
May 14 • 69 min
The 2018/2019 Premier League season is over. A 16th place finish, some wins against the top 6, 29 points dropped from winning positions (if my counting is correct), a new coach, a load of players out on loan, 2 executive openings, and a second place…
121- Woeful at West Ham, with Freddie from The Ugly Inside
May 7 • 64 min
Last year I was blessed to be able to travel across the Atlantic Ocean (and the continental United States) and attend a match. Unfortunately, it was West Ham away. A 3-0 defeat, a poor showing, and a real problem when you consider the path to safety. That…

Apr 23 • 38 min
I’m gone this week. We’re camping and it’s going to be great. I tried to set a few things up so we’d have a normal-ish length episode for the week, but a couple of things fell through and only one of them actually got done. That one thing was my…
118- Red Dead Redemption II, with Mike Smale of MatchDayVlogs
Apr 16 • 74 min
Inviting Wolves into your home is always risky… Just writing that brings back memories of news stories from my childhood, where ordinary people somehow decided having a Tiger or a Lion or a Wolf as a pet. Not to mention Little Red Riding Hood or any of…
117- Just As Expected? With Lucy Highnett
Apr 9 • 67 min
Saints vs Liverpool. We are two years removed from the EFL Cup run that saw us deny Klopp’s LFC even one goal during the 2016/2017 season. I remember the tense night, under the lights, when, after missing several half chances, and after Forster clawed the…
116- Desire, Dream, Vision, with Michael Kurn
Apr 2 • 66 min
Inspiration comes from all around us. It’s different for each of us. It could be nature, a harrowing comeback late in a game, or a personal story of struggle. Inspiration sometimes it finds us when we least expect it, or when we need it most. People often…
115- Get With the Program, with Chris Tuck of Non-League Programmes and Saints Programs
Mar 26 • 52 min
*Quick note- the call quality this week isn’t great. I’m not sure why it is, and I’m not necessarily happy about it, but it’s nothing Chris or I did, it just is. So, I’ll likely spend too much time trying to figure out why it was so bad, but I hope you…
114- Enjoying Our Work, with Dave Lee
Mar 19 • 63 min
It’s always a pleasure to be able to meet other Saints fans and record an episode face to face. I love almost every aspect of doing the podcast but the people are the best part, and getting to see and meet people who love the same things I do really sets…
113- Who Needs A Friend? With Rob Maddox
Mar 12 • 75 min
Spurs stole our song, got (most of) the calls from our most recent enemy referee, and controlled the first half. But, we took all three points in a dramatic and impressive second half display. We did it with no striker on the pitch, relying on a teenage…

111- It’s Not All Bad, Emirate? With Christian Candler
Feb 26 • 69 min
Arsenal is a big match for me. My son and my best friend both support the Gunners. We’ve given them fits in the past, and took three points off them earlier this season. Sunday didn’t go that way, and after going 2-0 down early, I decided 6:22am was the…

103- An American Living in London and Working in World Football: My Conversation with Chris Macchi
Jan 1 • 94 min
Chris Macchi’s story isn’t something he makes a lot of. But, from the outside, it’s a story of someone who loved soccer from an early age, and who found a way to make it a part of his life. Football and soccer go far beyond the lines on the pitch, the…

98- Paying the London Price, with Dan James
Nov 27, 2018 • 63 min

97- We Are One Club, with Becky Harris of the Southampton Women’s Football Club
Nov 20, 2018 • 59 min
It’s almost Thanksgiving here in the USA. It’s my favorite time of year, it’s better than Christmas or Halloween, or even Easter. It’s a time to reflect, a time to remind ourselves of all that we have that is good, and a chance to surround ourselves with…

Nov 13, 2018 • 77 min

95- You’ll Never Guess How This Ends, with Aydin Osman
Nov 6, 2018 • 70 min
First things first, this week’s episode contains some adult language. I’ve beeped it (at least most of it), but be warned. Moving on…I’m not really a “win at all costs” type of person. But I am, without a doubt, someone who believes in working your…

92- Live from the Halfway Line, with Amie Barnett of the Southampton Women’s Football Club
Oct 16, 2018 • 64 min
The thought of not having club football for one weekend seems to send most fans into a bit of fit. I’ll be honest, when that weekend comes, it does feel like something is missing. It drags on a bit, especially when you are playing well. But, that feeling…

Aug 28, 2018 • 66 min
Another week, another instance of Cedric being out jumped at the back post, another late goal allowed takes points from Saints, and once again we drop points at home, to a team that we would expect to beat given that they were Vardy and Mahrez-less.…
84- Not Much Good at Goodison, with Daniel Adam from the SaintsFCPage on Instagram
Aug 21, 2018 • 54 min
Saints are coming off another loss at Goodison park. Once again, the team started slowly and was on the back foot for much of the first half, and went into halftime down 2-0. Many aspects of the match were similar to those we saw last season. A slow…

Aug 14, 2018 • 51 min

Jul 10, 2018 • 69 min

Apr 24, 2018 • 77 min

Jan 16, 2018 • 52 min
I feel like we’ve seen this, heard this, said this, and written this before, several times, and I’m afraid we’re going to run out of new ways to say, “we sat too deep once we had the lead,” and “where is our leadership on the pitch?” And, “what is…
