Episode 87 (Antti Niemi) – Total Saints Podcast

The next episode of ‘Total Recall’ by the great Total Saints Podcast is with Antti Niemi.

After three seasons in Edinburgh, Niemi moved to Southampton in 2002. He played in the 2003 FA Cup final against Arsenal, which we lost 1–0; Niemi became the first goalkeeper to be substituted in an FA Cup final when he was replaced by Paul Jones during the game due to a calf injury. In a game against Fulham in the 2002–03 season, he came up for a corner in injury time with Southampton trailing 2–1. The ball fell at his feet and he crashed a shot against the crossbar, and Michael Svensson was able to turn in the rebound, salvaging a draw. In March 2004 he saved a Michael Owen penalty to help his team to a 2–0 win over Liverpool. #SaintsFC
