Joshua also likes to interview fans of other teams over a game of FIFA 18. See how St. Mary’s Musings fared against WAGNH below.
Please read, like, share and, most importantly, enjoy this week’s edition of Inside Info - the original (we’re looking at you, www.southamptonfc.co.uk) Saints column which gets the opposition’s views ahead of their match against our beloved Southampton.
St. Mary’s Musings: What did you make of last Saturday’s game between Chelsea and Saints?
Joshua Sutter: Everything I love and hate about this season’s Chelsea wrapped up in a bow. Amazing potential spoiled by foolish mistakes, a seemingly hopeless first portion of the game, and then either they do what they did against Southampton or just lose 2-0.
SMM: What is the story behind Chelsea’s relatively poor 2018 thus far?
JS: Foolish mistakes, untapped potential, and frankly just not as good of a squad as years past. But in my mind, still not a horrible season.
SMM: What is the general consensus on Antonio Conte?
JS: It’s tough for me to say I’m speaking for the consensus. So I’ll say that from what I see I believe there are more Chelsea fans that support Antonio Conte than those that want him sacked.
SMM: How important is the FA Cup for Chelsea now?
JS: Part of me believes a win might be enough to keep Conte. The other part of me believes he’s gone either way. Regardless, it probably doesn’t mean much for the club and how they view Conte’s season. Missing the top four will be the reckoning.
SMM: What are your thoughts on Southampton from a Chelsea standpoint?
JS: It’s unbelievable to me that they’re likely going down. Southampton were always a club I admired and enjoyed watching, and now I likely won’t get to watch them for a season. Frankly just disappointed and saddened for the fans.
SMM: How do you see the game going down on Sunday?
JS: 2-1 Chelsea. An Antonio Rudiger own goal gives Southampton life late in the second half but Chelsea manage to hold on.
