Lazy Fan Sports are rolling out podcasts in the coming weeks – some will be brand spanking new, some will be established series. The inaugural LFS podcast is ‘Pitchside Podcast’ – a football (soccer) podcast created by five sports journalism students from the University of Brighton.

The podcast has been running for around a year now and has gained a few regular listeners. We hope to boost their listener figures by reeling some of our readers in. Here’s a little about the contributors:

Kieran Harm

The more eagle eyed of you will notice that the name at the top of this article is also Kieran Harm – that’s because I myself am one of the contributors to this project. As all of us are, I’m a third-year sports journalism student at Brighton University. I’m from Newcastle Upon Tyne and as you may expect, support Newcastle United.

Lewis Tizard

As well as being the host of Pitchside Podcast, Lewis is a Liverpool fan from Harpenden, Hertfordshire. He will debate with anybody about absolutely anything football related – especially if it’s about Liverpool.

Adam Keiller 

Adam is our resident Essex boy! When it comes to football, one team wasn’t enough for him. He’s primarily a Newcastle United fan but also has a soft spot for Millwall – the club the rest of his family support.

Harry Trend

Harry is our personal football Wikipedia – the boy has a ridiculous amount of knowledge about football history. Harry hails from Cardiff, Wales and is an avid supporter of Aston Villa.

Matthew Cooper

Matt is the quiet one out of the group. He tends to sit out of our more heated debates – unless it involves Reading FC. Matt comes from Reading, Berkshire and is a mad cricket fan. If you’ve got any queries about cricket, he’s your man.

The new episode

This week’s episode was a pretty standard episode. We’re reduced to four instead of five as Matthew is working at The Cricketer magazine for a couple of weeks. Myself, Lewis, Adam and Harry were all present to debate not only the football from the weekend gone, but the upcoming Champions League ties too.

There’s a heated debate about Jorginho, a fiery discussion about a lack of loyalty in football as well our weekly quiz game – ‘Odd one out’. The aim of the game is to guess the name of the player and the reason why they’re the odd one out from the four names provided by that week’s quiz master. This week it was on Harry to come up with the question.
