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 of taking 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 Preview Show: Paul Pogba impresses, the North London derby returns, and Richard Keys saves football

    The Preview Show: Paul Pogba impresses, the North London derby returns, and Richard Keys saves football

    Hot off the heels of a shambolic draw with Bournemouth, the first trailer for Spurs' new ‘All or Nothing’ Amazon documentary series has just dropped. Spoiler: it’s nothing...


    Marcus, Andy and Luke are here to peel back the layers of that terrible performance, as well as marvel at another vintage Man United display. There’s also time for talk of Richard Keys single-handedly saving football, Carlo Ancelotti opening his illustrious contacts book and a titanic battle between the top two seeds in Luke’s Game – that's all on today's episode of the Preview Show, sponsored by Betway!

    Liverpool are honoured again, Newcastle lay down for Man City, and orange cards in La Liga

    Liverpool are honoured again, Newcastle lay down for Man City, and orange cards in La Liga

    Kate, Luke and Jim are here to ask; do the champions always get a corridor of applause from everyone once they’ve won the league? Frankly we can’t remember, but then there’s a lot of stuff we’ve forgotten about since the world stopped making sense, like that Eric Dier crowd thing.


    On the various pitches Liverpool walked through their corridor and all over Brighton, James Tarkowski got away with one against West Ham and Man City put five past a Newcastle team who seemed to be having out of body experiences where they were on a beach rather than at the Etihad.


    Elsewhere we examine the MLS Fyre Festival controversy, the sudden introduction of a new type of card in La Liga and the Bezification of in game crowd noise.

    All square at The Emirates, Welbeck gives Watford hope, and will five subs continue next season?

    All square at The Emirates, Welbeck gives Watford hope, and will five subs continue next season?

    Jules, Pete and Jim are here to discuss football. All the football. SO much football, and so much GOOD football! 


    Chelsea came out on top of a five goal thriller at Crystal Palace, Watford overcame Norwich with Danny Welbeck scoring while upside down and Arsenal and Leicester drew after some good old VAR drama. Who doesn’t love that? Everyone. 


    There’s also big news from IFAB, with a possible extension of the five substitutes malarkey, the indefatigable Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Neil Warnock riding his bike around Middlesbrough in training gear. Of course he’s been doing that.

    Son vs Lloris, a League One penalty masterclass, and Joey Barton’s vanity glasses

    Son vs Lloris, a League One penalty masterclass, and Joey Barton’s vanity glasses

    Just as well Son Heung-min and Hugo Lloris had a scrap, as last night’s game provided sod all else to talk about. Vish managed to miss it from the press box at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but him, Kate and Pete press on regardless.


    Also on today’s episode, we marvel at the return of Netflix villain Jack Rodwell and look ahead to some of tonight’s intriguing Premier League ties. Plus, we ask the question on everyone’s lips: will Gareth Ainsworth’s leather jacket be a downloadable extra on the new Fifa game?

    Southampton survive Man City’s siege, Arsenal show maturity, and Jamie Vardy joins the 100 Club

    Southampton survive Man City’s siege, Arsenal show maturity, and Jamie Vardy joins the 100 Club

    There was no need for Southampton vs Man City to be a crazy, backs-to-the-wall thriller – but what a game it was! 


    After an understandably sluggish start football seems to have found its groove. Marcus, Andy and Jim also look back over Arsenal’s impressive win over Wolves, Man United’s vintage demolition of Bournemouth and, of course, consider which of Jurgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola you’d prefer to fight.


    We also check in with some record-breakers as Jamie Vardy, Sergio Ramos, and Gigi Buffon all continue to defy the concept of ageing!

    The Blizzard: Uruguay 1-1 Ghana (4-2 pens), 2010

    The Blizzard: Uruguay 1-1 Ghana (4-2 pens), 2010

    It is almost ten years to the day since one of the most dramatic matches in World Cup history unfolded on a raucous night in Johannesburg. BBC 5 Live commentator Conor McNamara joins us to look back at the iconic clash between Ghana and Uruguay on today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard!


    The hopes of a continent, and probably every neutral around the world, rested on a Ghanaian side that took on Uruguay and their fearsome attacking talent for a place in the semi-finals. Two goals either side of half time set up an extra-time period unlike any other, with Luis Suárez at his infamous worst – all set to the pulsating drone of 84,000 vuvuzelas.

Too Much Content

I feel like there is too much content for me now. I am only interested in listening to The Ramble, not the other offerings, and I find now I end up missing the most up to date Rambles because I’m getting flooded with other content I don’t care for. I’d like to have the option to subscribe to just The Ramble with an option for others to subscribe to The Ramble Daily and get all the other content.

Also how come the normal Ramble lineup is not together any longer?

I know what you look like too Jules

I sent on your instagram and rubbed one out. Nah I’m just kidding but that sounded creepy as hell. Andy Brassell = Aqualung
