Ep. 148- It's a Shame, Things Stay the Same, with William Porteous of "The Name"
William joins the show- Welcome and Film Talk- 7:27
Saints Talk- 38:20
Saints failed, for the 4th time running, to avoid a loss at St.Mary’s. It wasn’t 0-9 this time, but in all honesty, it wasn’t that much better. After going down early Saints simply meandered, seemingly directionless and without much passion, towards halftime. Saints started with a back 3. The same back 3 that stood so firmly for so long against Manchester City just a week ago, but by allowing the early goal, and with Stuart Armstrong stuck in as a Right Wing-Back, it was all going wrong for Saints.
Halftime brought changes and the Boufal created Saints first shot just moments after coming on. He then provided the assist for Danny Ings. After that, Saints settled back into the all-to-familiar and slowly let the game slip away from them. Richarlison eventually gave the visitors the lead, and Everton secured their first away win of the season. The result has left Saints in the relegation zone and Saints fans particularly flummoxed.
That’s the context for this week’s show. Another poor performance, another relegation fight, another match where the players seem to be coasting, another season where the manager doesn’t seem to know his best side. It’s crushing to all of us, and it definitely makes doing things like this show harder.
This week, though, I’m joined by a familiar voice. Not to this show, but around the Saints FC community. He’s appeared on the Saints FC Podcast, The Ugly Inside, on this week’s Total Saints Podcast and here. He writes and talks he gardens and he’s all around just pretty great. We spend a lot of this week talking about his new film, The Name, written by William and shot in a single day in three locations in England. It’s a lot of fun and well worth 20 minutes of your time. William and his team have more coming and we discuss that as well. We discuss pretty much everything because I did not want to talk about the match, but we eventually did.
