In 2007, The Football Ramble was born out of Luke Moore, Pete Donaldson, Marcus Speller and Jim Campbell’s passion for the most popular sport in the world—as well as a shared inability to take themselves too seriously. Since then, the boys have come a very long way: from a best-selling book to sold out live shows.


Now, with the return of football post-lockdown, the Football Ramble brings you daily episodes of equal parts insight and hilarity. All this and more, Monday through Saturday. 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.

    The Blizzard: Newcastle United 2-0 Blackpool, 1951

    The Blizzard: Newcastle United 2-0 Blackpool, 1951

    We celebrate Newcastle United's illustrious FA Cup history on today's episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard. Historian and author Dan Jackson joins us to look back at the 1951 FA Cup final, the first of three FA Cups Newcastle won in the 1950s!


    A Newcastle side featuring legends such as Jackie Milburn and Chilean striker George Robledo beat Joe Smith's Blackpool in front of over 100,000 people at Wembley. We explore Newcastle's illustrious status at the time, as well as their victory in the final itself and its implications in what was a special time for North-East football.


    This is the final episode in this season of Greatest Games–thank you all for listening. For more stories from the annals of football history, visit www.theblizzard.co.uk to explore their archives that contain over 700 articles of stories just like this one!

    The Preview Show: RB Leipzig squeeze past Atlético, Neuer vs Ter Stegen, and glorious punditry pettiness

    It was another victory for the Champions League underdogs last night, as RB Leipzig knocked out a stuttering Atlético Madrid. Jules, Luke and Andy wonder whether Diego Simeone’s time at Atleti is coming to an end and what we can expect from them in coming seasons.


    We also look ahead to a cracking set of Champions League quarter-finals, assess the changes to next season’s schedule and celebrate some glorious pettiness from French pundit Eric Di Meco. Plus, Jules makes her Luke’s Game debut!

    Heartbreak for Atalanta, Mesut Özil's Arsenal future, and Eric Cantona's vineyard

    Sadly, Atalanta's Champions League dream is over. Jules, Pete and Jim mourn the bubble that Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s last-gasp winner burst, before looking ahead to tonight’s edition of the Champions League Lisbon Extravaganza.


    We also discuss the latest on Mesut Özil's situation at Arsenal (after his interview in The Athletic), and get some dating advice from Paul Dummett. There's even time for Eric Cantona's Champions League château and competition newbies Rennes waking up the neighbours!

    Wolves call off the hunt, the Champions League heads to Lisbon, and what's next for Daniel Sturridge?

    Wolves call off the hunt, the Champions League heads to Lisbon, and what's next for Daniel Sturridge?

    Well, after 59 games and 383 days, Wolves’ season has finally come to a close. Jules, Vish and Pete settle into the roasting hot studio to celebrate their amazing achievement, which culminated in a Europa League quarter-final three years after being in the Championship. 


    Elsewhere, we wonder what the future holds for Daniel Sturridge as he looks to return to the Premier League. We also get to some more of your Topics suggestions, which include the introduction of Enforcers and comedy aprons - among other filthy scenes…

    Romelu Lukaku's form continues, turmoil at Bury FC, and Borussia Dortmund stand firm

    Romelu Lukaku's form continues, turmoil at Bury FC, and Borussia Dortmund stand firm

    It wasn’t a vintage Manchester United performance last night against Copenhagen, but they did break through eventually and advanced to the next round. Kate, Jim and Andy are here to look over last night’s Europa League action, notably the incredible goalkeeping from Karl-Johan Johnsson and another cracking Romelu Lukaku performance.


    We also catch up with the latest cheekiness from Dortmund and Leverkusen, as the respective Jadon Sancho and Kai Havertz transfer sagas roll on. And, after their application to rejoin the National League was rejected, we take a gander at the tumultuous scenes at Bury FC.

    Andrea Pirlo steps up to the plate, Man City march on, and Lionel Messi does it yet again

    The Champions League has returned, and Man City are in with a real chance of winning it all! Kate, Luke and Vish are here to marvel at their dominant win over Real Madrid as well as Pep Guardiola’s choice of novelty t-shirt.


    Elsewhere, Barcelona fended off Napoli with some more Lionel Messi brilliance - which massively underwhelmed Vish. Meanwhile, after their loss to Lyon, Juventus have replaced Maurizio Sarri with the sexy work experience kid: Andrea Pirlo. Strange times!

Pete locked me in his flat and wouldn’t let me out until I gave a five star review

Peelola ,

Funny, engaging, topical and intelligent

4 is a Ramble, but sometimes 3 is enough. Quality football show. Its like sitting in the pub with your 4 best mates and just talking football and things related to football, most of the time.
