In this article, The Footy Gang will be discussing one of their favourite football podcasts. We have already gone into detail of three excellent football podcasts: I Had Trials Once, The Honest Football Podcast and The Fantasy5 Podcast. In this article we will be discussing an other top drawer podcast, a must-listen for all Chelsea fans: That Chelsea Podcast.
That Chelsea Podcast is a podcast talking all things Chelsea by Nick Williams and Jack Davies. They are friends from secondary school who love going to the games and decided to start the podcast in lockdown, with the pilot episode going out on the 20th June 2020. At the time of writing 8 episodes have been released.
In the episodes so far the boys have reviewed and previewed Chelsea’s games since the Premier League restart , discussed player’s performances, where they think Chelsea need to strengthen in the transfer market and have discussed the job Frank Lampard has done in his first season in the Stamford Bridge dugout .
The most recent episode titled “The one where we go to the FA Cup final” is a favourite for the boys due to the unexpected nature of the victory over Manchester United in the semi final and the fact it has led to the chance of Frank Lampard lifting his first piece of silverware as Chelsea boss. The boys were so proud of the performance and gave praise to every single player on that Wembley pitch, as well as Frank Lampard for his tactics. Lampard was a hero for the That Chelsea Podcast hosts growing up and seeing him in charge of Chelsea this season has made it a really special season following Chelsea .
There have been so many special moments with the boys being together in the away end at Arsenal in December 2019 to see Chelsea’s late come from behind victory to beat one of their biggest rivals . That capped a memorable week with both of the lads also at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before Christmas for Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Jose Mourinho’s Spurs. While it’s a shame they won’t be at Wembley for the FA Cup final due to the restrictions in place due to the effect of COVID-19, should Chelsea get over the line and win the FA Cup, it would complete a truly special season following the Blues, with Chelsea so close to securing top 4 at the time of writing.
With what has gone on in the world over the recent months the boys have also tackled some big issues in their episodes , such as the efforts of Chelsea during the COVID 19 pandemic , as well as the Black Lives Matter movement, discussing the Premier League’s support of it , as well as the importance of the movement and how it came about .
They have had guests on to discuss the top 4 race, football’s role in society and the fact that we don’t have any openly gay elite footballers, as well as answering questions from the listeners.
The boys hope the podcast really takes off and although it’s early days, the support they’ve received through messages on Twitter and Instagram has meant a lot. They hope to have some high profile guests on and would love to interview people involved in the world of football as well as at Chelsea, whether that be staff behind the scenes or players, as well as former Blues who have helped shape the history of this club. One day perhaps, they can interview Frank Lampard and look back on his highly successful career as a player and hopefully as a manager.
