SAINTS returns for the first of a Premier League double-header when Southampton host Watford on Saturday, with Michael Obafemi the feature interviewee.

The exciting teenage forward discusses the ups and downs of his short professional career to date, describing his dreams of scoring at St Mary’s in his quest for goals and game time.

James Ward-Prowse is our latest programme cover star, as the matchday publication continues its bespoke home and away theme for 2019/20.

Inside, in-form striker Danny Ings reflects on two points that got away at Arsenal, where he netted his eighth goal of the season, and Ralph Hasenhüttl speaks to the Saints supporters ahead of back-to-back home games.

Away from the Premier League, Maya Yoshida talks through his highs and lows in a Japan shirt, having reached the milestone of 100 caps for his country over the recent international break.

The away section of the programme provides the traditional in-depth coverage of our opponents, as Bleacher Report’s Sam Tighe explains why Watford have struggled to build on an impressive season last term.

As always, SAINTS offers something for all ages, as our expert historians evoke memories from the past, whilst our junior section offers a host of quizzes and games to keep the kids occupied before kick-off and during the half-time break. 

Pick up issue eight of SAINTS from one of the numerous sellers outside St Mary’s and inside the stadium concourse, priced at £4.

SAINTS is also available to buy online, either as individual editions or as a seasonal subscription. Simply visit saintsprogrammes.com.
