Morons: A New Hope

Summer Break 2019 - Leicester City

In our penultimate episode, we’re in the midlands with one of the Premier League’s nouveau riches. Leicester City came from the relative poverty of a Premier League relegation battle in 2015 to winning the whole damn thing a season later in what was, without doubt, one of the finest moments of English football’s storied history. But this vertiginous rise to the lofty heights of the Premier League’s elite had a strange effect on the club. The following season, Claudio Ranieri was sacked, to be replaced by Craig Shakespeare. Shakespeare, it turned out, was also ‘not to be’ and so followed a succession of managers joining then leaving the club until Brendan Rodgers arrived at the end of last season. Will Rodgers be able to shake off the curse of the 2015-16 title-winning season? Or is he simply its most imminent victim?

Summer Break 2019 - Leicester City

Summer Break 2019 - Newcastle United

Today, we’re as far North as we’ll get in this series. Newcastle has a famous footballing pedigree which is why the slow decline of the club in the last ten years has been all the more painful to watch. Owned by arch capitalist and almost universally despised Mike Ashley, the club has been run as a cash cow for a number of years with the owner doing just enough to milk it for profit. Fans could hardly believe their luck when they managed to accrue the talents of Rafael Benitez and then keep him even after relegation into the Championship. But even that silver lining was duly ripped out and sold for monies. Now, fans of the club face the prospect of a season under Steve Bruce, whose career win total is close to tipping beneath his career loss total. If things go as well as many pundits predict, then it could well happen this season. So here we are. A beleaguered fan base. A manager who does not look up to the rigours of Premier League life. And a squad that leaves a lot to be desir...

Summer Break 2019 - Chelsea

In today’s episode, we’re back in London - just down the road from Fulham Broadway Tube Station at Stamford Bridge. Under Roman Abramovich, Chelsea have had an up-and-down few years. As far as the present season is concerned, it’s something of a down year. Despite Europa League success with Maurizio Sarri last season, a two-window transfer ban from FIFA for malpractice signing foreign under-18 players as well as Sarri’s return to Italy has left fans and pundits alike unsure of how successful a campaign they will have this time around. If there is a silver lining, it is somewhat tarnished: club legend Frank Lampard here to oversee an influx of youngsters off the back of a curious debut season at Derby County. Will Lampard save the day as he has done so often in the past? Or is there a danger that Chelsea could drop out of the top six if things don’t go their way? Joining us on the podcast today is one of the biggest personalities in the football media: Amadí Thiam. Amadí is cu...

Kitted Out: Episode 8 - Doncaster Rovers 3rd Kit 2018/19

Hello and welcome to Kitted Out Podcast, a podcast on football shirts. Each episode, I will take an in-depth look at a different shirt from throughout the years to discuss everything about it. The design, the materials, the story. For episode 8, I am taking a look at the 2018-19 3rd Kit for Doncaster Rovers which was sponsored by CALM and designed by an 11-year-old! This is the 3rd year where Doncaster and CALM have come together and it has produced something wonderful! I spoke with, the Kit Guru to get his thoughts on the design, Ben Hawkey from CALM to discuss the kit, the partnership and the work CALM have been doing in football. I also discussed the EFL partnership and other work that Mind are doing with Jack Holloway from Mind, and finally, I spoke with Liam from Papyrus to give us some information on who Papyrus are and what work they do.

Kitted Out: Episode 8 - Doncaster Rovers 3rd Kit 2018/19

Summer Break 2019 - West Ham United

Today, we’re back in the capital city - in London's North West and Stratford. It’s hard to talk about West Ham without mentioning their geographic re-location. Moving away from their home in Upton Park three seasons ago, the Hammers took up residence in the Olympic Stadium bequeathed them in the wake of London 2012. This sort of casual dismissal of localism in sports fandom has become par for the course in recent years but West Ham’s story seems to offer a parable about the difficulties of a football club uprooting and making a new home. Only now, three years later, do West Ham look as though they’re about to turn a corner. A new manager last season bolstered by an impressive window, the club looks like they could cement themselves in the race for ‘best of the rest’ this time around. Could this be their most impressive season in recent years? Or could the influx of new names fail to gel and leave the Irons off the pace? Joining us today is a well-known name from the world of W...

Summer Break 2019 - Norwich City

Today we’re heading to a part of the country that is under-represented in the Premier League: Norfolk. Norwich aren’t exactly new to the Premier League but, when they dropped out of the top division of English football in 2016, no one expected them to be coming up again any time soon. Two uninspiring seasons in the Championship followed and it looked as thought Norwich were more likely to head in the opposite direction. But then everything changed when two men came into the club and turned it around: Stuart Webber was made Sporting Director and, early on in his tenure, he brought in Daniel Farke as manager. In two seasons, Norwich found their way to the top of the Championship table and barely looked back. But will the sheen come off when they take their place in the Premier League next year? Or will they manage to overcome the odds and cement themselves firmly in the division? Joining us today is an individual who will be familiar to many of you. Adam Brandon is a writer for popu...
