Last Wednesday, Southern Daily Echo Editor Ben Fishwick wrote on their website:
Today we can reveal Saintsplus – the new home for exclusive coverage of everything to do with Southampton FC.
Saintsplus will feature the very best tactical analysis, opinion, features and much, much more.
The Echo has been covering Southampton FC for decades and is the trusted place for coverage.
Now this new home for Saints fans goes far beyond the up-to-the-minute match reports and player interviews we regularly bring you at the Daily Echo.
Saintsplus will go into detail analysing the tactical nuances of each Southampton performance – and the season as a whole – to make sure every angle is covered.
These insights will be brought to you in the most creative and interesting ways possible, giving you the deepest of dives into Southampton FC.
Powering all of this is our new writer Benjy Nurick – whose unrivalled passion for football is being poured into covering Saints.
Benjy has left no stone unturned in searching for a top-flight roster of interviewees who can add real insight into the club today – and those behind its greatest moments.
Saintsplus will be open only to digital subscribers. However, nothing will change for our current coverage of Southampton FC including match reports, regular interviews, and transfer news. It will all remain free to access on our site.
All current digital subscribers will automatically have full access to the new Saintsplus section.
