Jules & Andy: The Championship gets a return date, and players' social activism

With Jules unwell this week, Andy Brassell welcomes fellow Football Ramble Daily host Marcus Speller, along with a couple of great guests, to today's episode of Jules & Andy!

With the EFL setting a return date for the Championship, many clubs have raised concerns about the lack of preparation time and dialogue between themselves and the league. We welcome TalkSPORT's EFL commentator, Ian Danter, to the show to discuss the league's international appeal and what reassurances clubs across the league are asking for.

Then, with various players voicing their support for the family of George Floyd and the wider Black Lives Matter movement, we speak to The Independent's Melissa Reddy about Jadon Sancho's display of activism after his debut hat-trick and why younger players across Europe are far more engaged in highlighting social issues than their predecessors.
