    On The Continent: Kylian Mbappé’s ascent to the top, Luis Suárez joins the dark side, and systematic problems at Schalke

    On The Continent: Kylian Mbappé’s ascent to the top, Luis Suárez joins the dark side, and systematic problems at Schalke

    Lars Sivertsen joins Dotun Adebayo and Andy Brassell on today’s episode as we take another leisurely stroll down the tree-lined avenues of European football. 


    Today, we begin by wondering about Kylian Mbappé’s next step in his career – should he stay at PSG or leave Ligue Un so as to establish himself as the world’s best? We also break down Luis Suárez’s transfer to Atletico Madrid, as Barcelona seemingly forgot to leave Atleti off their competitors list. And, after their 8-0 humbling at the hands of Bayern Munich, we look at the mounting problems around Schalke and their repeated missteps in the transfer market.

    Book Club: The Fleet Street Girls, Julie Welch

    Book Club: The Fleet Street Girls, Julie Welch

    For the return of Football Ramble’s Book Club, a legend of football journalism joins Kate Mason and Jim Campbell in the studio: Julie Welch, the country’s first female reporter and author of ‘The Fleet Street Girls’!


    Julie burst onto the scene in the 1970s, in a time when women were still forbidden from the male sanctity of the football press box. Despite this, she overcame seemingly relentless sexism and misogyny and established herself as one of the country’s best sportswriters. She joins us to discuss her memories of Fleet Street's glory years, from having afternoon tea with Alan Ball to enjoying her status as a trailblazing figure for women hoping to break into the industry.


    You can purchase a copy of 'The Fleet Street Girls' here.

    On The Continent: Dortmund try to halt Bayern, more drama in Le Classique, and who will win Serie A?

    Dotun Adebayo and Andy Brassell are joined by Nicky Bandini to look ahead to some returning European football. We look into whether Borussia Dortmund can halt Bayern’s dominance and pick through the aftermath of the brawl in PSG’s clash with Marseille. Plus, our Games of the Week returns!
