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!
