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.


The Return of the Premier League – Episode 3: Money, Neutral Venues, and Football's Future

On the third and final episode of the series, we turn our attention to the financial necessity behind the Premier League's return and explore how coronavirus will reshape the future of English football. 

Join Melissa Reddy as she also dissects the neutral venues debate with the help of former police superintendent, Owen West. He labeled it a missed opportunity to engage with fans and build greater trust. Dr Rob Wilson breaks down the impact on the transfer window, and along with ESPN's Mark Ogden, talks through the Premier League's continued hand-to-mouth existence. They consider what mechanisms can be put in place to safeguard English football against another stoppage like this in the future.

Thanks for listening to The Return of the Premier League, hosted by Melissa Reddy. Join us tomorrow for a brand new schedule to celebrate the Premier League's return!
