Liverpool dazzled us all in the Champions League but what will happen when their unstoppable force meets the immovable object of Paul Lambert? We can but wait and see. 


While we wait we chat more about Big Weng’s plans for the future, are surprised by a musical theatre revelation and hear from our beloved-yet-worst listener. There’s some stuff about Kevin Keegan though so it’s all good.

Podcast cover

It’s time for another Champions League recap, as James and Andy are in situ for more continental coverage. We begin with Bayern’s tonking win over Spurs, thanks to four goals from Arsenal legend Serge Gnabry. We also take a look at some of your correspondence regarding Niko Kovač, and whether some of the doubts over his qualities have been alleviated, and we consider Bayern’s prospects for the season.


Elsewhere, we discuss Real Madrid’s laboured, and largely undeserved, draw against Club Brugge, as well as revelling in the return of Mario Balotelli and Brescia. We also squeeze in a Ligue 1 roundup and look ahead to Le Derby this Sunday, as Saint-Étienne host Lyon!

Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer has brought Man United back! Again. The Red Devils all but handed the title to Liverpool with victory over Man City, unless Jamie Vardy has something to say about that, which he very well might, what with him being Jamie Vardy and all that. 


Elsewhere, Big Duncan Ferguson got off to a great start as Big Everton beat Chelsea, while the Steve Bruce masterclass continues at Newcastle with Jonjo Shelvey is playing like the player Marcus always knew he was. 


If that’s all a bit too footbally for you we of course cover more than that, such as chess, errant stags and some very old references.

Andy’s flown back in from Milan this morning, just in time for a brand new episode of On The Continent! We begin with a look at two sides struggling at opposite ends of Ligue 1, as PSG lost their second of the season against perennially-underrated Reims and Monaco won their first league game in seven attempts.


We then discuss the remarkable underdog story in Liga Nos, as Famalicão are top of the table after six matches— where can they realistically expect to finish this season? There’s also praise for Chris Smalling’s impressive Roma debut, questions about whether Romelu Lukaku suits Antonio Conte’s requirements and a preview of this weekend’s Madrid derby!

The goings on at Man United are going on so much that they’ve reduced Sir Alex Ferguson to lonely red wine sessions in his old office, which may or may not be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s current office. They face Norwich at the weekend in a fixture more intriguing than it has any right to be. 


Spurs also host Liverpool, which should be a spicy one. Will we see Jose Mourinho attempt to park the bus? Probably, yes. 


As well as discussing the upcoming action, we take some necessary detours through ear irrigation, Pizza Hut’s social media team and a particularly furious emails section. We've all got exclusive new music from Pete Donaldson. It’s time to learn!

Rank #11: On The Continent: Quique Setién takes charge of Barcelona, the race for the Scudetto, and some January arrivals

It turns out that, if you’re after the coaching job at Barcelona, all you need to show the selectors is an undying love for Johan Cruyff. That’s one of the distinct conclusions we’ve come to on today’s episode of On The Continent...


That’s right, reported fourth-choice Quique Setién takes charge of the Catalans - we discuss how he might actually be a success, while also assessing the legacy of the departing Ernesto Valverde. We then run the rule over Roberto Moreno’s start as Monaco’s new manager after two games against PSG, debate Inter and Lazio’s chances of the Scudetto and review some players that have arrived at English clubs so far this January.

After that, we check in with a struggling Hertha Berlin and their coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who recently couldn’t produce his coaching badges to Bundesliga officials after leaving them in a cupboard back in the USA - an apt metaphor for their season…

Ramble Meets... Rick Edwards

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s a meeting of minds on today’s episode of Ramble Meets… as Luke sits down with writer, broadcaster and Liverpool fan Rick Edwards!


Rick can trace his fandom back to "picking the red team” in the 1986 FA Cup final aged six, and Liverpool Football Club has remained a significant pillar in his life ever since. He joins Luke in the studio to discuss his passion for football that has followed him since standing on the terraces at Molineux with his dad, right up to to being left distraught when Liverpool lost the 2018 Champions League final. They also talk more generally about football’s reflection of society, the club vs country debate and how it seems men only feel comfortable expressing emotion while in a football crowd.


You can purchase Rick's new book: 'Hollywood Wants to Kill You - The Peculiar Science of Death in the Movies' here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hollywood-Wants-Kill-You-Peculiar/dp/1786496925

Greetings, one and all, to another episode of Jules & Andy on Football Ramble Daily! Pleasure to have you with us.


Today we begin with Wolves’ flying winger Adama Traoré and his hugely impressive season thus far.

The Blizzard: Juventus 3-1 Real Madrid, 2003

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s a Football Ramble Daily crossover on today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard, as we’re joined once again by Andy Brassell! Andy joins Marcus and Jonathan to discuss Juventus’ spectacular 3-1 win over Real Madrid in the 2003 Champions League semi-final.


The game was played at the notoriously derided Stadio delle Alpi on the outskirts of Turin. This, however, was different to the usually under-attended matches at Juventus’ ground, as Marcelo Lippi’s side played in front of rapturous home support. We discuss this gripping tie between two European heavyweights featuring the best and worst of Pavel Nedvěd, some questionable Real Madrid defending and an injury-enforced cameo from the great Ronaldo.

It turns out that, if you’re after the coaching job at Barcelona, all you need to show the selectors is an undying love for Johan Cruyff. That’s one of the distinct conclusions we’ve come to on today’s episode of On The Continent...


That’s right, reported fourth-choice Quique Setién takes charge of the Catalans - we discuss how he might actually be a success, while also assessing the legacy of the departing Ernesto Valverde. We then run the rule over Roberto Moreno’s start as Monaco’s new manager after two games against PSG, debate Inter and Lazio’s chances of the Scudetto and review some players that have arrived at English clubs so far this January.

On today’s episode of Jules & Andy, we start by discussing the renewed injury woes for Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane. Having played 300 games at just 26, we discuss what Kane can do to protect the longevity of his career and wonder what José Mourinho can do to replace the injured striker as the rest of the season unfolds. 


Also, after some enlightening correspondence from our listeners, we discuss the mental strains placed on modern football managers. As they try to succeed amidst unprecedented pressure and scrutiny, we discuss how the football-watching public’s obsession with managerial personality can be so damaging to those at the top.

The Blizzard: Everton 3-2 Wimbledon, 1994

Podcast cover
Read more

We’re headed up to Liverpool for today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard, for a classic escape from relegation. On the docket today is the final day of the 1993/94 season, as Everton had their last roll of the dice against Wimbledon, and we’re joined by author and deCoubertin Books principle James Corbett!


After a fantastic period of success in the 1980’s, the turn of the decade brought about tougher times for the Toffees. Everton were actually one of the key five drivers in forming the then-Premiership but looked ill-equipped to deal with the change, after many senior players followed Howard Kendell out the door in the late 80s and early 90s. There were four other teams in the mix for relegation as the final round of fixtures arrived and, after going 2-0 down against Wimbledon, all hope looked lost - but Everton performed the impossible. We discuss a miraculous comeback on that nerve-shredding afternoon at Goodison Park, as fans in the adjoining Stanley Park climbed various trees in hopes of watching one of the most significant ever matches in their club’s history.

Spurs also host Liverpool, which should be a spicy one. Will we see Jose Mourinho attempt to park the bus? Probably, yes. 


As well as discussing the upcoming action, we take some necessary detours through ear irrigation, Pizza Hut’s social media team and a particularly furious emails section. We've all got exclusive new music from Pete Donaldson. It’s time to learn!

On The Continent: Milan blandness, Coupe de France madness, and Dries Mertens' sadness

Podcast cover

We’re back in the studio with some more continental content, as Luke Moore and Andy Brassell are joined by The Guardian’s Nicky Bandini!


We begin, as the man himself would expect, with Zlatan Ibrahimović’s largely uneventful debut for Milan. Nicky discusses how his leadership off the pitch might be more valuable than his contribution on it, as well as assessing Stefano Pioli’s struggles in the dugout. We also mention some struggles down south, as Gennaro Gattuso hasn’t had the best start at Napoli and club legend Dries Mertens now find himself resigned to the subs bench. 


Elsewhere, Andy runs us through Porto’s impressive win over Sporting and their impressive boss Sérgio Conceição. There’s also some chat on perhaps Europe’s best cup competition, the Coupe de France, and a preview of some cracking Games of the Week. Table-toppers Inter against free-scoring Atalanta, anyone?

Jules & Andy: The FA Cup's dwindling magic, how the tournament can find it again, and some potential January transfers

Podcast cover

Has the FA Cup lost some of its sparkle? What are the big teams’ attitudes towards the tournament? These are a few of the questions we’re trying to answer on today’s brand new episode of Jules & Andy!


After a mixed set of results from the third round this weekend, we debate how significant a place the Cup still holds in football’s television-dominated environment. We suggest some ways to help recapture the magic of past FA Cups, including moving the semi-finals away from Wembley and incentivising teams to take it more seriously, while Jules recounts some of her favourite memories of watching it as a fan. Elsewhere, we discuss some of the potential movers and shakers in this January’s transfer window, as Arsenal need some new personnel in defence and Manchester United could do with some creativity.

The Blizzard: Ireland 1-0 Netherlands, 2001

Podcast cover
Read more

You join us in the Emerald Isle for today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard. We’re taking a look at a historic afternoon for Irish football from 2001, alongside JOE’s Dion Fanning!


The Netherlands arrived at Lansdowne Road with qualification for the 2002 World Cup on the line, while Mick McCarthy’s men had enjoyed a hugely successful qualifying campaign. Louis van Gaal had began to drift from his traditional 4-3-3 philosophy by this point, after a tough spell at Barcelona, and as this game slipped through their fingers he even finished the game playing four strikers.


In contrast, Dion remembers how this game was perhaps “the last time Irish football felt united and moving in the same direction.” The Green Army were still the usual underdogs but, with a fantastic goal from Jason McAteer and a stalwart performance from captain Roy Keane, they secured World Cup qualification in front of 35,000 at Lansdowne Road.
