  1. It’s been a great week for everyone who loves/supports/follows Saints, thanks to back-to-back 3-1 wins over Crystal Palace and Fulham. With a heck of a lot to chew over, we reflect on Danny Ings’ 100th senior goal, penalty saves, Wilfried Zaha’s traditional ‘tears at St. Mary’s’, Che Adams impact and Nathan Tella, a talented (and incredibly smiley!) 21-year-old, opening his account for the Club. Alongside that, TSP161 discusses Ryan Bertrand’s imminent departure from the South Coast (30:40) and also previews the remaining two matches of 2020/21 – our home clash (41:25) with Leeds Uni
  2. It wasn't necessarily a surprise to see Saints lose at Liverpool on Saturday night, but it did once again reiterate the lack of belief and cutting edge currently running throughout the side. Given Danny Ings’ continued absence, you got the feeling Saints could have played until the next UK Bank Holiday and still not score! We reflect on a thirteenth loss in seventeen Premier League matches - since that win over Jürgen Klopp’s side at St. Mary’s in early January. Finally, ahead of a double-match week for Ralph Hasenhüttl and his players, TSP160 previews the upcoming fixtures agai
  3. One thing Saints will never be is predictable…. Expect them to win? They’ll often let us down. Expect them to get turned over? They’ll produce a spirited, ‘against the odds’ display, just like they did against Leicester City. TSP159 reflects on a game that oozed determination, achieved 10/10 player ratings and (*quelle surprise*)….included more VAR controversy! Next up is the trip to Anfield, as Ralph and the lads try to finish this season in a positive manner. Could that mean a rare Premier League ‘double’ over Liverpool? You’ll have to listen to the match preview (38
  4. Saints suffered FA Cup Semi-Final heartache at Wembley, after a thoroughly lacklustre showing against Leicester City. Despite Ralph Hasenhüttl saying his team ‘left everything out on the pitch’, TSP discuss, amongst other post-match reaction, whether we agree with that opinion…..or not! TSP158 also includes conversation about the proposed (..../disgraceful!) European Super League (26:30) and previews Saints’ next match, against a Jose Mourinho-less Tottenham Hotspur (42:20). If you'd like to listen to this episode, you can find it via any of these links: acast: h
  5. Cup fever is starting to intensify in and around Southampton (well…..it was pre-West Brom anyway!), with Saints set to take on Leicester City in next weekend’s FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. This week we're joined by Simon Peach (PA Media) to preview another pivotal match in the Club’s history (50:15). Jamie (Leicester Fan TV) also provides an ‘opposition view’ from the Foxes camp (59:25). Ahead of that Wembley build-up, the guys reflect on Saints latest Premier League match – a dreadful 3-0 loss vs Sam Allardyce’s Baggies. TSP157 also includes the final ‘International Suppo
  6. A quiet, uneventful return to Premier League action for Saints? When have they ever been known to do that?! Instead, after an end-to-end, rollercoaster of a match, Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side secured a fantastic 3-2 win over Burnley. We work our way through the key moments, players and decisions from another tough – and emotionally draining – Premier League battle. Sean Dyche also pops in (again) to provide some post-match reaction. TSP156 also previews next week’s visit to the Hawthorns, as Saints take on Sam Allardyce’s West Bromwich Albion (32:00).
  7. Saints cruised through to the FA Cup Semi-finals thanks to a comfortable 3-0 win over Bournemouth. We look back at a dominant showing from Hampshire’s premier football team, including standout performances by Nathan Redmond and Stuart Armstrong. TSP155 also sees the panel answer several listener questions, including whether Danny Ings might need to be sold this summer (30:15), possible touchline support for Ralph Hasenhüttl (37:05) and the SFC Playbook’s progress (or not) (43:05). Lastly, Chéle became McChéle earlier this week. An achievement TSP simply have to acknowledge!
  8. Thanks @Sunglasses Ron / @Mr Saints / @Snopper - we appreciate it/you sticking with us! Hopefully the conversation can become a little more 'positive' over the next few weeks.... B
  9. Saints did their best to ruin Mother’s Day by putting in an excruciating performance against Brighton & Hove Albion. With Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side showing little desire or urgency, it was no surprise to see The Seagulls eventually win 2-1. We try to dissect what is (or isn’t…..!) going on with the team, after yet another disappointing week. TSP154 also includes a preview of next weekend’s FA Cup Quarter-Final visit to Bournemouth (31:15). If Saints can secure victory then, despite the current Premier League ‘doom and gloom’, Wembley will be waiting! If you'd 'like' to listen to
  10. Saints finally secured a much-needed Premier League win, thanks to a convincing 2-0 victory over Sheffield United. We purr over Nathan Tella’s performance at Bramall Lane, Che Adams ‘thunderb*stard’, the importance of Kyle Walker-Peters, Ralph Hasenhüttl’s 100th game in charge of Saints and much more! TSP153 also includes the latest ‘International Supporters Club’, as Alec Weise from Milwaukee, Wisconsin drops in for a chat about 'all things Saints/USA’ (26:25)! The Pod finishes with a look ahead to the next two fixtures for Hasenhüttl’s side. Firstly, the dauntin
  11. It was another 'game of two halves’ for Saints at Elland Road during the week. Despite playing pretty well in the first 45 minutes – but yet again not taking our chances – Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side eventually lost 3-0 to Leeds. Worryingly, the Austrian even called the players out publicly for ‘giving up’! Chat covers a dodgy pitch, dodgy result and even dodgier run of form! TSP152 also includes a look ahead to two more Premier League fixtures this coming week – the trip to Everton (24:55) on Monday (where we haven’t won in the league since 1997!) and then next weekend’s visit to S
  12. “What’s that in the rear-view mirror?” “That, my friend, is 29 points!!” Yes, after a loooong 48 days, Saints finally moved on to 30 Premier League points, courtesy of a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Chelsea. We discuss a resolute Saints performance, some Minamino magic, possession stats and Alex McCarthy’s ‘penalty-saving record’. TSP151 also looks ahead to Tuesday night’s rearranged game with Leeds United, as Ralph Hasenhüttl and the lads head for Elland Road (41:45). If you'd like to catch up with the Pod you can find it via any of these links: acast: https://bit.ly/
  13. TSP celebrate their 150th episode in true Saints style! During the course of Southampton Football Club’s 135-year history, one moment still stands out above any other – the 1st May 1976. It was the day Saints upset all the odds to beat Manchester United and win the FA Cup. The man behind that success was Lawrie McMenemy – and he joins TSP150 to chat exclusively about a 50-year love affair with the Club. Speaking with Ben Stanfield (Host) and Glen de la Cour (League One Minus 10), Lawrie recalls first joining Saints in 1973, Terry Paine frustrations, the famous FA Cup run, h
  14. In true Saints style, it’s been a week of two halves!Having beaten Wolves in the FA Cup on Thursday – which set-up a Quarter-Final tie with Bournemouth – the Midlands side then got their revenge in the Premier League. The latter was Saints sixth league defeat in a row (an unwanted Club record!).We discuss the more notable moments across both games – including Mohammed Salisu’s debut and a belting volley from Danny Ings.TSP149 also includes the latest International Supporters Club. February’s edition comes from one of the sunniest countries in the world (thankfully – as we could do with a littl
  15. Having had so many enjoyable weeks during the first half of the season, the past seven days are better best forgotten if you’re a Saints fan! Saturday's 3-2 reverse at Newcastle United saw Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side record five Premier League defeats in a row for the first time since 1998! TSP148 sees the regular panel try to come to terms with yet more defensive woe, this time at St. James’ Park. The Pod episode also includes thoughts on a very topical question right now – VAR decision making. A TSP patron asks whether
