Football Ramble podcast celebrates its 15th anniversary this week with a two-part special – looking back at the most defining, iconic and entertaining moments both on the pitch and on the show.
With over 2,000 episodes (across the Ramble network) and counting, Football Ramble has been ever-present throughout all the times that reminded us why we love the beautiful game, and even through the slightly less beautiful moments – looking at you, European Super League!
Each part of the documentary counts down from 2007 to 2022 including a favourite on-air moment from each year, with listeners able to submit their own personal highlights.
Relive some of football’s biggest and funniest stories on the show with Luke Moore, Jules Breach, Marcus Speller, Vithushan Ehantharajah, Jim Campbell, Pete Donaldson, Kate Mason and Andy Brassell – including Leicester City’s shock title victory, England’s highs and lows from Iceland in 2016 to beating Germany last summer, and the fall of FIFA in 2015.
“Receiving listeners’ submissions for these anniversary specials was such an amazing reminder of the incredible community that exists around the show”, says Luke Moore. “It’s mind-blowing that 15 years ago we were recording this podcast around my kitchen table and the only person who was listening was the editor! Now, we have thousands of episodes that have really stayed with people – it’s a joy and a privilege for us to continue making fun and entertaining shows for our listeners.”
Since its launch in 2007, the podcast has resonated with fans for its light-hearted, irreverent, and honest commentary on football’s ever-changing circus. As the most popular independent football podcast in the UK – with 1.75 million monthly listeners – Football Ramble overhauls traditional football punditry.
The hosts of the podcast are Luke Moore, Marcus Speller, Jules Breach and Vithushan Ehantharajah.
