Welcome to the forty-second episode of We Ain’t Got No History’s We Ain’t Got No Podcast, hosted (usually) by your very own Jimmy Funnell and Ram Srinivas!

After a terrible defeat at the hands of relegation-bound West Brom, we tried to make sense of what went wrong for Chelsea. To do so, we were joined by returning guests and fellow WAGNH community members Robert Hanson a.k.a. simongabriel and Siva Sankar a.k.a. eternalblue who helped us analyze Chelsea’s abysmal showing with some insightful stats and opinions. Questions were asked with regards to certain players’ positions at the club (hint: one’s Tammy Abraham) and what Thomas Tuchel has to do to react appropriately, among several other topics.

We also looked at the upcoming Champions League quarter-final game against FC Porto, including some cautious predictions, potential tactics and how Malang Sarr has been doing on loan there.

So tune in to hear us ramble on about everything Chelsea Football Club!
