This week The Fireside Chronicles gets invaded by those hoodlums over at The Pitchside Chronicles. Located in Leeds and with James Simoniti at their side, Brendan “The Haymaker” Haywood and Matthew Wright chat with the chairman of FK Orn Kristiania, Martin Sjøblom Roppestad. Recently they made the headlines with an audacious deadline day approach for David Beckham, offering him an official club sports bag, an official button for suits and blazers and the much coveted number 7 shirt.
We chat with Martin on a personal level and find out just how this club was founded and whether or not one too many shots of tequila was involved. In addition, we try and organise a friendly between FK and our local team and discuss just what it will take to see FK playing in the Champions League. Martin was a great guy, funny and very well informed about the world of football, so sit back and enjoy this episode. He endeared us to his club and we will definitely be following them throughout the season.
This weeks show was brought to you by the dulcet tones of Matt from the Reaction Podcast and with promotional consideration brought to you by 7 Days a Geek, the Route 21 Podcast, Meatclown, Press Start, Strangecast and Will and Bobby Know Everything.
