Pochettino - one year on

By SFC Media Fri 10 Jan First team

Tomorrow’s issue of SAINTS magazine, our official matchday publication, features an exclusive interview with Mauricio Pochettino as he approaches the first anniversary at Southampton.

Almost 12 months on from his appointment as First Team Manager, the Argentine welcomed the magazine behind the scenes at Staplewood to observe a typical day at Southampton’s base in the New Forest.

In our feature interview, the Saints manager discusses the highs and lows of the past year, his life away from the pitch, his bond with his backroom staff and his vision for the future at St Mary’s.

The new edition of SAINTS also includes a tribute to Club Captain Kelvin Davis, who last weekend broke a post-war record for appearances for Southampton by a goalkeeper.

There’s also a selection of photos from the training ground, where the squad have been preparing for tomorrow’s game against West Bromwich Albion.

In Academy News, Development Squad coach Martin Hunter looks ahead to Monday’s Barclays Under-21 Premier League clash with Manchester United, while there’s an interview with Under-18s striker Marcus Barnes about his long-term ambitions.

Classic Saints takes an illustrated look back to our 1-1 draw with West Brom in 2008 – a game in which future captain Adam Lallana scored his first Southampton goal.

We’ve compiled a scouting report on tomorrow’s opponents to take a look at their strengths and weaknesses, plus there are detailed profiles of the key players looking to do the damage for the Baggies.

#GlobalSFC focuses on the Thai Saints, who are representing the Club in Thailand and are now our largest fan group outside of the United Kingdom.

You can read all of this and much more in issue 14 of SAINTS magazine, our official matchday magazine – pick up your copy at St Mary’s ahead of tomorrow’s game for just £3!
