The Preview Show: Big European wins for Liverpool and Spurs, Chelsea visit Turf Moor, and Villa prepare for their Etihad battering

There’s been plenty of good stuff going on at the top of the football pyramid but forget all that (for now) because Big Sol Campbell is back! Southend United have done us all a favour and installed the big man as their manager. More as we get it. 

We also look ahead to an Anfield thigh-rubber, a hair-based conspiracy, the wolf-like Christian Pulisic and Newcastle’s St James’ Park fortress. 

There’s also time for Burnley-as-furniture, our own boring dreams and some listener fashion tips. Get involved for goodness sake. 

We're on tour, and playing the Tyne Theatre & Opera House tonight! Join us at venues across England, Europe, USA and Canada for Football Ramble Live - expect all your old favourites (including Pete Donaldson), brand new games and a load of laughs. Get your tickets now at!
