King of the Road podcast: Coffee, Conte and England away

The King of the Road podcast, hosted by my good friend, Rory Jennings, has a brand new episode.

Some of you may know Rory from CFC Fan TV, his previous career as a Hollywood bad boy, or most likely, his unmistakable dress choices at Chelsea matches, home and away.

Rory has recently launched a brand new podcast, where he talks all things Chelsea, London, and football culture.

When the first episode debuted a few weeks ago, it immediately climbed up the iTunes table and within 24 hours, was one of the top-ranked football podcasts in the world. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself.

Here is the latest episode (number five), in which Rory and (Spurs fan, but try to not hold that against him) Adam Boultwood, of The Front 3 Podcast talk about:

  • Antonio Conte’s future
  • green tea lattes
  • heartbreak for Italy
  • Hashtag United / Next Level Football League
  • West Brom away
  • and much more!

How to listen

Where to find Rory

Where to find this week’s guest (Adam Boultwood)


For whatever my recommendation is worth, I cannot recommend this podcast highly enough. Rory has had a season ticket to Chelsea since the 1994/95 season (when he was around ten years old) and had a streak of never missing a match - home or away - spanning several years, that was only recently broken last April when his wedding happened to take place during Chelsea - Crystal Palace.

There are some great Chelsea podcasts out there - including the fantastic London is Blue pod - and if you’re interested in hearing game recaps from the perspective of match-going fans (what were the loudest chants at Bournemouth away, what is the worst commute to an away ground, why are European away days so brilliant?) and a bit of football culture (the history of Roma and Lazio, why Nottingham Forest fans are great) and London culture (how to make a proper gin and tonic), you’ll absolutely love this podcast.
