Publisher's Summary

Downloaded over 10 million times a year, The Football Ramble podcast has established itself as the essential independent voice of football punditry. The weekly podcast has resonated with supporters around the world, and their sold-out live shows have been a massive hit with supporters. This audiobook is a collaboration by all four presenters and tackles the real issues from fans you won't see or hear on Sky Sports - or anywhere else, for that matter.

From the weird and wonderful, from the Alan Pardew to the Kevin Keegan, the Ramble has it covered. Putting all aspects of the game under the microscope, this book is a timely reminder of why we just can't take our minds off football.

Refreshing take on the things we should all know about football

I have listened to the podcast for the last 5 years so going in I had big expectations, it didn't disappoint at all... great work chaps, especially the grass roots chapter, that was brilliant

Great Podcast funny Podcast, average dull book

the podcast is funny spontaneous and insightful. the book isn't.
it's read like they can't be arsed Jim Campbell in particular or like they have written profound wisdom others couldn't possibly think of, Luke Moore.

at best it's average, at worst it's annoying.

Best Performance

Who doesn't love a book read by its authors? Excellent history chapter as well as the Ramble's take on the many facets of the beautiful game. I loved it.

Delightful!

The book is very Anglo-centric as would be expected considering the authors. Don't let that stop you from giving this book a listen. It's a funny, entertaining and informative exploration of soccer/football culture, personalities, history and passion. I know some of the jokes are lost on me as an American, but that didn't stop the Ramble from being an awesome book.
