Osman and Chambers on Life's a Pitch
Friday, 5th Aug 2022 16:51

Blues legend Russell Osman and former skipper Luke Chambers all feature on Saturday’s Life’s a Pitch, live on BBC Radio Suffolk (12-2pm).

Host Mark Murphy with be joined in the studio by legend-in-residence Terry Butcher, while Tractor Boy and TWTD's Phil Ham will be at the New Lawn ahead of the Blues’ first ever game against Forest Green Rovers.

Osman will be alongside his long-time central defensive partner Butcher in the studio, while Chambers, now with Colchester, was interviewed ahead of the show.

We’ll also hear from CEO Mark Ashton talking about the club’s Running Towards Adversity motto following the inspirational talks given to players and club staff by former Arizona police officer Jason Schechterle last week.

Will Town beat Forest Green? What did you make to last week’s 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers? Are you disappointed Bersant Celina isn’t coming back for a third loan spell?

Send your thoughts on those questions or anything else via Mark’s Twitter or during the show by phone on 0800 141 2121 or text to 81333 starting your message with SFK.

The show can be heard on 95.5FM, 95.9FM, 103.9FM and 104.6FM, and on DAB, or online via a widget on this page by clicking here.

1 A legend of a defender. The other a liability of a defender.

Chambers was never a liability on or off the pitch so while it is your opinion it has no context, reasoning or depth.

Osman played in our best ever team, managed superbly and when the club was well run. Chambers didn’t have that luxury and while Osman was clearly a better player having played at a higher level against better opposition, Chambers gave his best years for the club when he need not have done that.

Both are a credit to the club for different reasons under different circumstances

Well said Ivor.

Chambo was a liability in defence and witnessed on multiple occasions. Captain of the cosy and overpaid club.

Deffinitly a liabillity in defense for many years so many calamatis mistakes would have been so much closer to automatic promotion with someone nore solid next to Berra. Then it was all downhill from there and a sign of the problems that he was never replaced. All he did off the pitch was moan and help create a divide as well.

Well said Blueknight….and spot on

I was actually thinking that should have read Town legendS Osman and Chambers. I think a bit disrespectful to Chambers. Osman played for the club in at its highest point surrounded by great players and with one of the greatest managers to ever live. Chambers played for the club at its lowest point surrounded by journeymen at best. Was Chambers in the same class as Osman ? Not even close. But he is in the top 10 appearance makers in our club's history and he was our captain. He never shirked a tackle or an honest interview. He left everything on the field and gave everything he had every game even if he wasn't the most talented to ever pull on the shirt. He stuck with us through thin and thinner when we were frankly...crap. No-one's pretending he'd make an all-time Town XI.....but a legend based on different criteria for me.

The lack of respect for Luke Chambers is pathetic.
Great servent for this club.

Both Chambers and Osman are indeed club legends, regardless of ability. Chambo had blue blood, was never injured, always gave 100% and was a great support and influence to our young players. The game of football as a whole would benefit hugely if more "professionals" were to follow his example.
