Football Ramble

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 Blizzard: Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona, 2019

We’re revisiting a modern classic on today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard. To discuss a game that followed a fantastical narrative, we brought on an equally excellent storyteller – director of ‘Diego Maradona’, Asif Kapadia!

Asif chanced upon a ticket for this second-leg tie at Anfield (next to Michael Fassbender, no less), as Liverpool’s season was seemingly petering out. But Jurgen Klopp stood by his tactical beliefs and, after Divock Origi tapped home after just seven minutes, the inexorable tide began to turn. Then the corner was taken quickly–ORIGI!
