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.

    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.

    Mesut Özil bids farewell, Steve Bruce’s unanswered questions, and Fizzer keeps the roof blazin’

    Mesut Özil bids farewell, Steve Bruce’s unanswered questions, and Fizzer keeps the roof blazin’

    Marcus, Vish and Andy are here to say their heartfelt goodbyes to a few stalwarts of English Football and look over the entirely expected and underwhelming spectacle that was Arsenal 3-0 Newcastle. 


    First on the plane is Mesut Özil, who closes off his messy final chapter at Arsenal with his expected move to Fenerbahçe. We wonder how he'll be remembered at Arsenal, who cast further doubt over Steve Bruce’s masterplan at Newcastle last night. There’s also time to party in the city where the heat is on, as Phil Neville’s on South Beach until the break of dawn: he’s taking charge of Inter Miami! Danny Drinkwater and Jack Wilshere also look for new starts at Kasımpaşa and Bournemouth respectively.

    Man United and Liverpool share the spoils, another sneaky Leicester victory, and a vital win for Big Sam

    Man United and Liverpool share the spoils, another sneaky Leicester victory, and a vital win for Big Sam

    The wildly hyped clash at the top of the table failed to deliver much excitement, with both Man United and Liverpool happy with a point apiece. Marcus, Pete and Jim are here to round up that game as well as a load more Premier League action on today’s episode of the Ramble - join us! 


    Elsewhere, Leicester crept back towards the verge with a win at Southampton and West Brom got a vital win over struggling Wolves. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge also recounts Pep Guardiola’s emotional departure from Bayern, while Steve Bruce insists the gloves are off and he’s “doing it his way” – which makes us wonder exactly whose (infuriating) way it’s been up to this point…

    The Preview Show: A titanic title tussle, war in West London, and Brendan Rodgers’ secret recipe

    We’ve got ourselves a proper title race! Join Marcus, Luke and Jim to assess the runners and riders on today’s episode of The Preview Show, sponsored by Betway.


    Sunday’s Liverpool vs Man United will be a huge game for everyone except Jason McAteer, who is currently fronting the latest media assault on Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s boys. Elsewhere, Leicester have been having a jolly old time of late, with Jamie Vardy pausing his Ibiza plans for some of Brendan Rodgers’ trust workshops. We also hear some alarming revelations from Mark Clattenburg and bid a fond farewell to Chelsea stalwart Lucas Piazon, who left the club after one league appearance in a decade.

    Good vs Evil ends all square, Phil Foden lives every hour for football, and Skynet take over Burnley

    Good vs Evil ends all square, Phil Foden lives every hour for football, and Skynet take over Burnley

    José Mourinho had a few things to be angry about after Spurs drew with a spirited Fulham side, chief among which was Scott Parker’s team selection. That’s right, José is seemingly trying to pick the opposition's team as well as his own.


    Kate, Andy and Luke are here to question that strategy, before looking over Man City’s latest win on their march up the table. There’s also ample time given to the machines’ gradual takeover of football, as robot pandas invade the Chinese second division and cyborgs slot in at Burnley. Will Marcus Moore finally get a game up top for the Clarets?

    Man United reach the summit, Newcastle hit rock bottom, and an Uncle Avram update

    Join Marcus, Vish and Pete to look back on a huge night in the Premier League! That’s right: Ryan Fraser has officially become the shortest player ever to be sent off in Prem history. And Man United did something or other. 


    Elsewhere, Chris Wilder plans a lovely night in with his wife after the Blades’ wait comes to an end. It was another car crash for Brucey, but it’s all right: David Ginola has stated his intention to come and save the day.


    Plus, a particularly hazardous edition of Portmantonio Conte and news that Uncle Avram could be returning to Stamford Bridge.

Simply Magical

This podcast is a joy to listen to. Not only is it insightful, it’s also a glorious barrel of laughs. I’ve been a regular listener since 2012 and religiously look forward to the twice weekly updates. A must for any football fan, a pleasure to listen to even even if you’re not.
