Oriol Romeu is the star of Saturday’s matchday programme, as the Southampton midfielder opens up on his wide range of hobbies away from football.

A keen classic-car enthusiast, Romeu, who recently became a father, drove to the New Forest for a photoshoot with his vintage Porsche 911.

The 29-year-old discussed his love of driving, unusual holidays and tennis rivalries within the Saints squad in a revealing interview.

Elsewhere, Mohamed Elyounoussi writes about his Southampton second coming, and how he never lost the hunger to succeed in the Premier League, even after two seasons away.

Ralph Hasenhüttl reflects on Saints’ start to the season, while Franny Benali offers a full-back’s view on what it’s like to play on the opposite flank in light of Kyle Walker-Peters’s recent adaptation to the left side of defence.

Historians David Bull and Barry Webb take trips down memory lane, and Graham Hiley recounts one of the most memorable victories from the early years of St Mary’s, as Saints toppled the reigning champions in 2002.
