Since then, the boys have come a very long way: from a best-selling book to sold out live shows.


Now, joined by Jules Breach, Kate Mason, Andy Brassell and Vithushan Ehantharajah, the Football Ramble brings you daily episodes of equal parts insight and hilarity. All this and more, Monday through Friday. Lend us your ears and we’ll keep you up to date with the latest stories from the Premier League and all around Europe, all with an eye for both the sublime and the ridiculous.

    David Moyes on a hovercraft, another battering for West Brom, and a Welsh legend departs

    David Moyes on a hovercraft, another battering for West Brom, and a Welsh legend departs

    We can only assume that “genius” doesn’t mean what Pep Guardiola thinks it does, after Man City heartlessly battered Big Sam’s struggling West Brom. Marcus, Vish and Jim are here to pick up the pieces after that demolition on today’s episode of the Ramble!


    Elsewhere, there is due praise reserved for West Ham manager and hovercraft captain David Moyes, as they move up to fourth on the back of yet more unsung brilliance. We also check in on two of the game’s defending stalwarts - as a Russian activist tried to disguise himself as Daniel Agger and Welsh legend Ashley Williams hangs up his boots - before picking through Newcastle’s latest underwhelming performance.

    Frank Lampard’s tenure ends, a mixed night for Gareth Bale, and Mick McCarthy’s back from the beach

    Frank Lampard’s tenure ends, a mixed night for Gareth Bale, and Mick McCarthy’s back from the beach

    The uncertainty around Frank Lampard’s future has finally cleared. The club legend was sacked yesterday amidst a poor run of form and ominous signs in the dressing room. Kate, Luke and Andy are here to look over a tenure that offered encouraging signs initially, but seems now to only have been a temporary solution.


    Elsewhere, José Mourinho’s duet with Gareth Ainsworth didn’t go as planned after their 4-1 win, one that flattered a misfiring Tottenham side. We also celebrate Mick McCarthy’s triumphant return from faraway lands, get the lowdown from Andy on Martin Ødegaard and hear some of the best distractions shouted at opposition players.


    What’s the weirdest thing you’ve heard someone shout at an opposition player to put them off? Let us know: email show@footballramble.com!

    Man United edge out a thriller, freaky desires at Man City, and Newcastle continue to plummet

    Man United edge out a thriller, freaky desires at Man City, and Newcastle continue to plummet

    It seems this weekend’s Magic of The Cup™️ was all crammed into a cracking game at Old Trafford, with Man United edging out Liverpool thanks to more Bruno Fernandes wizardry. 


    Jules, Jim and Pete are here to revel in that glorious game and look across the rest of the weekend’s results, as Man City beat a spirited Cheltenham Town and Southampton knocked out holders Arsenal. Away from the FA Cup, Newcastle maintained their alarming slide down the table and Fenerbahçe are seemingly crowdfunding Mesut Özil’s wages, because that’s just the world we live in now…

    The Preview Show: The Anfield spell is broken, Wolves’ pitch peeves, and the big boys' trip to Cheltenham

    The Preview Show: The Anfield spell is broken, Wolves’ pitch peeves, and the big boys' trip to Cheltenham

    Kate, Luke and Andy are here to sniff out some of that Magic of The Cup™️ on today’s episode of the Preview Show, sponsored by Betway!


    Liverpool travel to Man United for round two of this season’s most boring rivalry, after Jürgen Klopp survived a prickly encounter with a gleeful Sean Dyche last night. We also wonder how two Davids will fare against their respective Goliaths, as Cheltenham Town host Man City and Chorley face Wolves on their terrifying pitch of doom. Oh, and this summer’s multi-venue Euro 2020 is in jeopardy - because of course it is.

    Paul Pogba’s pool parties, Dean Smith’s raging fury, and Michail Antonio’s santa sorrows

    Paul Pogba’s pool parties, Dean Smith’s raging fury, and Michail Antonio’s santa sorrows

    We barely had time to take in last night’s intriguing game at Craven Cottage, as we were too busy looking at the plans for Fulham’s new stand. Wayne Lineker’s packing his speedos as we speak…


    Jules, Luke and Jim are here to look over a right humdinger between Man United and Fulham, as well as Man City’s slightly bizarre victory over Aston Villa and an infuriated Dean Smith. We also hear of Pelé’s plan to wrestle back his goalscoring record from Cristiano Ronaldo and Michail Antonio’s honest assessment of his Christmas Lamborghini crash. Ahh, footballers and their things.

    James Maddison walks the walk, David Moyes dares to dream, and cryptocurrency transfers

    James Maddison walks the walk, David Moyes dares to dream, and cryptocurrency transfers

    Despite Leicester creeping towards the fabled verge, James Maddison was quick to pour blackcurrant cordial over the fires of their title challenge after a cracking win against Chelsea. Join Kate, Vish and Pete as we revel in another dose of that Brendan Rodgers magic!


    West Ham piled more misery on Big Sam with their win over West Brom last night, which left David Moyes dreaming and Vish lighting the official ‘Michail Antonio for the Euros’ beacon. We also hear of football’s first transfer funded entirely by bitcoin - Michael Owen was not involved - as well as Diego Costa WhatsApping his CV and wage demands to every manager in the land.
