Description

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.

Goals. And loads of them. All over the bloody shop: six at Stamford Bridge, seven at Fleetwood and two from Newcastle’s lonely wanderer, Joelinton! Settle in alongside Marcus, Luke and Vish as we mull it all over on today’s episode. As well as that gluttonous gathering of goals, we despair for West Ham fans as their owners continue to disregard their best interests. We then hear some puzzling news around potential new ownership at Wrexham. The party comes to the Racecourse Ground!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Despite most of last night’s Carabao Cup matches going ahead - with Spurs vs Leyton Orient postponed after positive coronavirus tests - football continues to operate in precarious times. Kate, Andy and Jim are back in the studio to discuss some games that did happen, with Newport County continuing their impressive cup streak and Brentford knocking out West Brom on penalties. Elsewhere, we discuss Les Ferdinand’s comments around teams taking a knee ahead of matches and celebrate the arrival of Alex Morgan to an increasingly stacked WSL. We even find time time for a youngster’s debut in Estonia that saw him substituted thirteen seconds after the kick-off!

Marcus, Jim and Andy are here after a paisley-draped Man City saw off a spirited fight from Wolves last night, while Aston Villa got a much-needed result over Sheffield United. Will Kevin De Bruyne establish himself as the best in the world post-Messi and Ronaldo, we wonder? We also look over some of football’s everlasting constants, as Zlatan Ibrahimović scored yet again and alpacas invade lower league matches. Meanwhile, Diego Simeone’s evil empire continues to grow: Luis Suárez and Diego Costa may soon be their strike partnership. My word.

Marcus, Pete and Jim are back in the studio after Hull City bested Leeds on penalties and Southampton were knocked out by an impressive Brentford.  We also get an update on the Tottenham Hotspur soap opera: former boss Mauricio Pochettino hasn’t watched much of All Or Nothing and, on top of that, their daunting schedule looms into view.

The cosy old jumper that is the Premier League returned – and what an opening weekend it was! Kate Mason, Pete Donaldson and 5’7” King Vish Ehantharajah settle in for a chat about some of the liveliest games from the opening round of fixtures. Liverpool and Leeds United slugged it out at Anfield, while a much-improved Everton kept a listless Spurs at arm’s length. We also praise Newcastle’s debutants for actually looking decent, before reeling in confused horror at Damien Delaney’s proposal for a dinner party guestlist.

Been a loyal Rambler for 8 years and loved every second of it, even going to a live show last year. This podcast got me through some interesting times, however the show quality has undoubtedly dipped with the new lineup. Every time there's a new Ramble uploaded I hate that I now have to check the lineup to see if it's a combination of presenters that I like as opposed to the old format. None of the new presenters are necessarily bad, or uninformed, it's just not the Ramble, and it's a testament to the quality of the show previously that adding such educated and obviously experienced people has made the show dip. In the 8 years I've been listening I feel as if this is the first wrong move the podcast has made, however I simultaneously understand why it's happened, the boys have been doing this for such a long time that frankly they must need a break every now and then, and also probably want to explore other aspects of their careers and thus can't smash out five Rambles a week between them. I will always love the Football Ramble, but I do listen to it far far less than I did before. Thank you for everything x

He gets a lot of Stick for the Ireland thing & some say he can't pass but been a DM for a season in half & was let go at 14 then last at WHU to get his Pro contract & then became Captain & got promoted to DIv 1. He gets dropped after MoTM keeps head up gets drop at HT after mistake keeps head up come back better. His mental strength for a 18-20yo over the years is incredible. Very grounded young man & wish him success!
