Southampton are back on home turf for the visit of Norwich to St Mary’s on Wednesday night, and Saints fans can secure themselves a copy of the matchday programme 24 hours early for the game.
Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy is the subject of the feature interview, as the England international opens up about his laid-back persona and how his calmness between the posts can spread confidence to those in front of him.
A typically passionate Pierre-Emile Højbjerg dominates the front cover with a powerful image, with Norwich goal-getter Teemu Pukki the star of ‘the away end’.
Inside, Ralph Hasenhüttl pens his matchday thoughts, while James Ward-Prowse reflects on that free-kick against Watford, and looks ahead to a key run of games in the build-up to Christmas.
The fixture is our designated Rainbow Laces match, so there is some useful information provided on the fine work being done by Saints Foundation, as well as the Premier League, to make sport everyone’s game.
Elsewhere, Sam Tighe offers his opposition insight, explaining why life is never dull when Norwich come to town, while our expert historians evoke memories from the past and our junior section offers a host of quizzes and games for younger readers.
Issue nine of SAINTS is available NOW to buy online, along with a host of back issues from the 2019/20 season at saintsprogrammes.com.
