Max Bergmann

The VideoMan

Max and his lovely German accent are the brains behind our YouTube channel where we do some tactical analysis in visual format. It sounds so much more cool in German than BBC English.




Rav is one of our early morning editors, making sure everything gets out the door before 9am and (hopefully) error free.

Henry Muldrew

“Not only does Ronnie Dog media give a writer a literary window to the world but to be fed the encouragement and support of both management and colleagues throughout is a very invigorating experience. Such an environment can and will bring out the best in you, and the twist in the tale, if you like, is that all this is designed for yourself rather than the host”.

Adrian Hack

“I have wanted to be a part of a friendly football writing family like RDM for quite some time now, where I can post my own opinions and see my writing develop. However, even though I haven’t been here long, I get just as much satisfaction out of being part of an organisation like RDM and seeing its pages and writers grow and gain recognition. I feel truly honoured to be part of this exciting project and I know it’s going to become an even bigger success. #followthedog”

Jamie Brackpool

The continual enterprising nature of editor in chief, Chris Darwen, ensures that opportunities continue to present themselves to writers who are willing to put in the effort. Whether you are seeking a career in football journalism or just want to write in your spare time, Ronnie Dog Media is the perfect start.”
