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

After an eventful few weeks of international football, Chelsea are back and preseason is in full swing. In this episode, we welcomed back podcast expert and part-time WAGNH-enthusiast Joe Tweedie as the three of us took the opportunity to reflect on several hot topics surrounding Chelsea. How did the Blues’ representatives fare at Euro 2020? Who should win the Ballon d’Or this year (warning: may include Blue-tinted glasses)? Which positions should Chelsea be looking to strengthen during the transfer window? Haaland? Rice?

The main part of this episode saw us take on the contemporary question whether or not Chelsea’s recent academy “exodus” should worry us and how the club could attempt to counter the tricky situation we currently find ourselves in. Should we panic? Will this be the begin of a trend? Or is it all being blown out of proportion?

To hear our answers to all these spicy questions, join us and give the newest We Ain’t Got No Podcast episode a listen!
