Football Ramble Daily

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, with the return of football post-lockdown, the Football Ramble brings you daily episodes of equal parts insight and hilarity. All this and more, Monday through Saturday. 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.


On The Continent: A thorough La Liga preview, and what next for Mario Balotelli?

¡Hola! Welcome to a new episode of On The Continent, Football Ramble Daily's weekly meander through European football's biggest stories. 

We're in a celebratory mood on today's episode, as La Liga returns tonight with another edition of El Gran Derbi between Sevilla and Real Betis. ESPN's David Cartlidge, our old OTC pal and sparring partner, joins us to preview all the weekend's action and things to look out for. We also discuss Ligue 1's hastiness to cancel their season, a disturbing attack on Benfica's bus and what's next for Mario Balotelli, after his disappointing homecoming in Brescia looks likely to come to an end.
