In 2007, The Football Ramble was born out of Luke Moore, Pete Donaldson, Marcus Speller and Jim Campbell’s passion for the most popular sport in the world—as well as a shared inability to take themselves too seriously. Since then, the boys have come a very long way: from a best-selling book to sold out live shows.


Now, joined by Jules Breach, Kate Mason, Andy Brassell and Vithushan Ehantharajah, the Football Ramble brings you daily episodes of equal parts insight and hilarity. All this and more, Monday through Friday. Lend us your ears and we’ll keep you up to date with the latest stories from the Premier League and all around Europe, all with an eye for both the sublime and the ridiculous.

    Liverpool’s new kids on the block, fans return to stadiums, and sneaking onto the pitch at Wembley

    Strap yourselves in for another ride aboard the Ramble mothership! Alongside you are Kate, Vish, Jim...and 31 Champions League-ready youngsters from Liverpool’s academy.


    Jürgen’s boys got the job done against Ajax last night, with young goalkeeper Caoimhín Kelleher particularly impressive (even if he only got put there because he doesn’t score). Elsewhere, Pep Guardiola and Sérgio Conceição riled each other up so much that their respective sides forgot to stick any chances away. 


    We also tentatively celebrate the return of fans to the EFL and look ahead to some worrying plans for a post-Brexit transfer window.
