    Ranking Which Teams Won the Transfer Window

    Ranking Which Teams Won the Transfer Window

    The European transfer window is over and the biggest deals are all done and dusted until January, so we thought it was only right to talk about the biggest deals and which clubs had done the best business. Sam picks the five teams who won the window, but we talk across Europe with some honourable mentions from across the continent too. 

    Hot Takes sees Sam discussing Liverpool's need to evolve if they're to keep their dominant streak alive, Dean talking about Edinson Cavani's move to United being a sensible move (whilst not the one they needed), and Jack picks Cadiz' 41 year old goalkeeper Alberto Cifuentes' retirement as his 'I Loved This Week'.

    There's also some talk about Adrian vs. Loris Karius, as well as which players might work for Mauricio Pochettino if he was to take over at Manchester United - there's a melon of the week from that vein, and Sam's nonsense rankings take an aggressively real-world turn. It really is Ranks FC.

    Ranking the Biggest Transfers Still Alive This Window

    Ranking the Biggest Transfers Still Alive This Window

    We're into Dean Jones' favourite week of the year—transfer deadline week! With that comes the end of all the sagas that have been running on all summer: will they, won't they, what happens now? With that, we thought we'd take a peek at the biggest stories left to come this window and see how they might turn out. 

    Before that though, there's Hot Takes, where Sam shows some love to Ronald Koeman's new-look Barcelona; Dean tells the cautionary tale of Antonio Rudiger and why his future may lie elsewhere; and Jack talk about the Suarez-led, swashbuckling new Atleti side which demolished Granada on the weekend. 

    Of course there's also discussions of City's new man Ruben Dias, and the Klassiker-Super Cup in Germany, whether Dortmund can halt the Bayern machine; a Melon of the Week for an Arsenal full-back; and a Royal Rumble-themed Nonsense Ranking. 

    It's Ranks! Enjoy it whilst you can!

    Ranking the Best Young Players in Europe

    Ranking the Best Young Players in Europe

    It’s Golden Boy season and that’s an excuse to talk around some of our favourite young players in Europe. And to do so, we brought in one of the biggest and best voices in football podcasting: co-host of the mighty Stadio, Mr. Musa Okwonga, to help us whittle a shortlist of 40 down to 10, and pick a top three.

    We talk Fati to Foden, Davies to the Dortmund crew, and everyone in between as we try to crown the Prince Regent of European football for 2020.

    There's also Hot Takes, where Dean addresses what's going on at Manchester United, Sam talks a new-look Juventus under Andrea Pirlo, and Jack discusses a record-breaking Premier League weekend.

    And of course, there's Roulette and Nonsense, where we take a peek at the stadiums we're most looking forward to when fans are allowed back fully, the questions we get asked most as football journalists, and the best mountain ranges in the world. It's Ranks!

    Ranking the La Liga, Serie A & Bundesliga 2020/21 Seasons

    Ranking the La Liga, Serie A & Bundesliga 2020/21 Seasons

    We saw La Liga leap into action last weekend, albeit missing a few of its biggest names, and this coming weekend sees the full cohort return in Europe's Big Five, with Germany and Italy joining the party - so we thought we'd take a look at what you can expect from them this season. 

    We talk title winners, Champions League spots, Europa League places and VERY IMPORTANTLY, the Europa Conference League inaugural contestants for each of Spain, Italy and Germany; as well as looking at our tips for Golden Boot winners and Breakout stars in each league. 

    Hot Takes see Sam singing the praises of Tariq Lamptey; Dean discussing why Tottenham are trying to sign Danny Ings (or any number nine really) and Jack waxing lyrical about the pitched battle that was this week's Le Classique. Oh, and there's a very special Melon of the Week. It's all-new Ranks!

Best football podcast

Every episode since episode one has been great so it’s a shame that they’re ending. I haven’t listen to the last episode yet but good luck to Dean, Sam and Jack.

Great football podcast and your articles have been top-notch for years

Relatable and great podcast to introduce the younger generations to the inner workings and dealings of football. I’ve been listening since or around the podcast first came out and have read Sam’s and Dean’s articles for years. Jack is a great poet and host to balance such talent, a true Benzema/Firminio. The only thing this podcast needs, and I understand there might be logistical issues, is to become a biweekly show. A week is too long to wait for such quality when others are daily. Remember, you guys are focused on a younger crowd (like me!), we’re very impatient and the podcast is fairly new, a biweekly show will not only grow the following but also showcase the talent in the BR squad and bring more football talk to the world!
