    The article above is by my son Jordan who writes for a number of football websites.
    He is a die hard Saints fan like myself and despite having moved to London with work, married and now having a child, he still travels down to Southampton for home games.

    He is currently working on a project to write a book about Venezuelan football. I know he would love any football fans to get involved in the project and show their support to a fellow Saints supporter doing something a bit different.

    Cortese was a monster

    “Just before I joined, the chairman at the time, Nicola Cortese, changed what we received as ‘lunch.’ It was a meal deal from the bar; so a cheeseburger or hot dog, a packet of crisps or chocolate, and a drink, but he changed it to a Lucozade and a Mars Bar. Probably wouldn’t have even been that if there wasn’t a requirement from the league to provide us with something! Like you say, though, the perk was being on the touchline.”

    I’ve followed him on twitter for a while now and read quite a bit of his stuff. Mostly an excellent. @Thefalselibero for others wanting a follow, well worth it.

    my son's Kickstarter campaign started yesterday. It is his attempt to raise funds to help him write a book about Venezuelan football and culture. He has put in a tremendous amount of work into this project already including numerous podcasts and full page spread in the Morning Star.

    Please take a look at his Kickstarter page and the incentives on offer for those getting on board with his project. He's a former Saint's ballboy and a die hard supporter.
