    The 2019/2020 season is finally over. A lot of bad things we never imagined could happen actually happened. Liverpool won the league, we got beat 0-9 at home (in case you missed it) we’re in the middle of a world-wide pandemic, there are continued instances of racial injustice all around, and Total Saints Podcast called it quits. But, there are some positive signs as well. Saints had their best finish to a season in several years, the club look to be addressing issues in the squad already, Bournemouth are relegated, we beat them, P*mpey, and Brighton in their own backyards, took 18 points from the promoted teams over the course of the season and we have RALPH HASENHUTTL as our manager. 
     
    To help recap the Sheffield match and discuss the season I’m joined by Jake Hughes of St. Mary’s Musings. It’s always great to chat with Jake, even if he doesn’t like Oriol Romeu as much as some of us do. Then, after that, I’m joined by Zach Lowy to discuss Mohammed Salisu, who is rumored to have already signed but has yet to be announced by the club. I’m truly thankful to both of them for sharing their time, and you for listening. I look forward to speaking with them again, and I hope you enjoy the show!

    Che Adams’ late strike put the nail in a Saints FC shaped nail in Bournemouth’s coffin, but the death blow came just moments earlier when VAR ruled out their late equalizer for offside.
     
    Honestly, it wasn’t very pretty. Bournemouth were more direct than THAT overconfident guy in the bar around 1:45 am after 16 drinks. We didn’t really press Bournemouth in their own half, mostly because they sent it upfield as soon as they had it at their feet. Still, Danny Ings managed a goal (we’ll forget the saved penalty), Saints kept a clean sheet, made it 31 points on the road this season (second only to Liverpool), eclipsed Puel’s point total of 46, and have a chance to finish as high as 11th… and all that despite losing 0-9 to Leicester City in October. Can you believe it!
     
    Joining me on the show this week to discuss the match and chat about the team and the season is Ben Stroud, author of a few horror stories and the Archers Road End blog, which I love and miss.

    I wouldn’t say Saints surprised us in the last two matches, and they shouldn’t have surprised Manchester United on Monday night either. The gameplan was, at its core, the same. Press. Force Mistakes. Take Chances. Make them beat you. And, it worked. The hottest team in the Premier League since the Project Re-Start kicked off was forced to drop points for just the second time since football came back. Star players were held in check, pockets were picked, and Saints left with a well-deserved point after taking an early lead and then clawing back a late equalizer.  
    Joining me to discuss the match this week is Alex Hart (Twitter @hartgarfunkel), a US-based Saints fan that I met (virtually) after Carl Anka captured our shared love of Saints in THIS article in The Athletic. It was fantastic to get to chat with Alex and get his thoughts on how Saints have been playing in recent weeks, and assess what might happen going forward, in this season’s remaining fixtures and into next season.
    Alex has also been a guest on the Total Saints Podcast (Ep. 70 and Ep. 106) where he shared his story of becoming a fan of the club in more detail that we go into here. So if you would like to know more about that side of the story, check out those episodes!
    Other than that, enjoy the show and let us know what you think!

    Saints managed to do what only *checks notes* 6 other teams had managed this season, beat Manchester City in the Premier League. We aren’t going to go full Bournemouth and start claiming a trophy for winning a football match- we’ll also defer the trophy for most viewed Premier League match- but we should take the time to recognize the victory and realize the impact a win over the defending Champions could have going forward. After all, it was Stuart Armstrong’s pressure that produced the Che Adams chance which, in case you missed it, he put away brilliantly. 
    Sure, we sat deeper and deeper as the match went on, and on most other days at least one or two of City’s shots deflect off of a defender and find their way into the net, or a cross finds the head of an attacker at the back post, but not this time. Saints managed to do it at home for only the 14th time in 3 years. And, in case you missed it, Che Adams scored his first Saints goal. It truly was a wonderful day.
    To make it even better, Lucy Highnett (@lucyhighnett on Twitter) joins the show. We recorded on the final whistle, which means we’re both on a bit of a high. Hopefully it all makes sense… if you need to put yourself in the mindset before you listen, just watch this short video.
    As always, thanks for listening and any feedback you have!

    The football season is most definitely back. The rollercoaster ride that is following Saints is here, and we experienced it all this week. Our emotions followed the team up and down as Saints lost to Arsenal in disappointing fashion, keeping the home form intact, and then went on the road to HAND Watford a defeat and take all three points back to St. Mary’s.
    Saints now sit on 40 points. Closer to 7th than 17th (though other teams have games to come later this week), and we can be relatively confident in how the team responded to the performance against Arsenal.
    This week I am joined by two guests, Chris Hutchings spoke with me on Friday morning to relive Arsenal and talk about the experience of being in the ground when then doors are closed and seeing Premier League football without a crowd. We also discuss the match, which wasn’t that great. Luckily, Chris is. You can follow him on Twitter @HutchFM.
    I then caught up with Jay Grant who runs the partner page of the show, the Southampton Page, on Twitter and Instagram. We had the pleasure of reliving the win at Watford, the performance of some of the rotated players, and we also discussed what we expect to see against City. We recorded on the final whistle and were, understandably, excited. At least we finished on a high!

    Ep. 179- Slow (re)Start, Strong Finish, with Bene Holley of The Saints FC Blog

    Ep. 179- Slow (re)Start, Strong Finish, with Bene Holley of The Saints FC Blog

    A three-month layoff might have been just what Danny Ings and company needed as Saints began Project Restart with an emphatic 0-3 win at Carrow Road. Southampton began slowly but grew into the game, and from the first hydration break on it was all Saints. 
    Joining me this week to recap the match, the team selection, the performances, and address your questions is Bene Holley, a Saints fan from Italy who also blogs about the club and helps run the Saints World Twitter account. Bene has a connection to Southampton and I really enjoyed getting to hear his thoughts on the match, getting to know him a bit, and learning more about his blog and writing. You can give him a follow using the links below and be sure to check out his blog as well!

Great Southampton Coverage

As a Southampton fan in the USA,I often feel alone in my support. There aren’t a whole lot of us around, so finding this podcast that covers the Saints in such a professional and in depth way really excited me. Recently started listening and love how the podcast gives honest and insightful coverage of the Saints every week. Can’t wait to keep listening! And the Saints Go Marching In!!!

Lillsters ,

Terrific

Tremendous bringing coverage to a smaller club here in the US. Super thoughtful insight and a change of tone from the news, more upbeat than down and ultimately a great glimpse into the community that is Southampton FC.

Teds fan ,

So much markstone

The kid is great
