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 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.

In today’s episode of Greatest Games (in association with The Blizzard), we return to the 2010 World Cup. The Independent’s Miguel Delaney was watching from the press box as his Spanish compatriots took on the Netherlands in the final in Johannesburg! This would mark the first time a European nation won the tournament outside of the continent, as the two sides met in a World Cup match for the first time. Miguel, Marcus and Jonathan recount a pulsating game fraught with tension, littered with yellow cards and rounded off by a glorious goal from one of Europe’s very best—all in front of over 900 million people watching from all over the world.

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!

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.  Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballrambledaily.com  ***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

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.  Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballrambledaily.com  ***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

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?

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!

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.

They might have underperformed this season by their outrageous standards, but Man City showed last night they’re still capable of handing out a pasting. The new champions were on the end of it this time, as we discuss on today’s jam-packed edition of the Preview Show, sponsored by Betway!  We also give Kate some stick for a calamitous Spurs performance, look ahead to some tasty weekend fixtures and, two years on, remember England's penalty shoot-out bliss. Lovely stuff.

Nobody wants to secure qualification for Europe, do they?! Jules, Andy and Vish are in situ to pore over last night’s Premier League matches, as Chelsea failed to capitalise on Leicester’s defeat at Everton and climb to third in the table. We also praise another impressive performance from Newcastle, particularly from star man and Twitter legend Allan Saint-Maximin, after a 4-1 result that probably sealed Bournemouth’s fate.  All that, plus a tonking 6-0 win for Serie A’s own Premier League tribute act and a preview of tonight’s games, on today’s episode!

We’re gradually coming to terms with Man United being a prominent force again, with today’s episode further evidence of that. Jules, Pete and Luke are here to rave about Bruno Fernandes’ pivotal impact since his arrival after United’s 3-0 win at Brighton last night. We also wonder what’s next for former England goalkeeper Joe Hart, celebrate the mind-boggling genius of Lionel Messi and wonder how Leicester can regain some intensity. There’s even time for a round of Pete’s new game, “Guess That Football Noise” (it’s a working title).

Even with the possibility of Europa League qualification, might the end of this season be the best time for Sean Dyche to leave Burnley? Marcus, Andy and Vish are here to mull over that question on today’s episode of the Football Ramble! We also discuss the details of a new scheme designed to help more BAME coaches find roles at the top of English football, as well as the PFA’s calls for commentators to address racial bias. And, with reports of dressing room unrest and Quique Setién under yet more pressure, we try to unpick the current chaos at Barcelona.

Marcus, Jim and Pete are here to discuss the weekend’s action, where Man City had enough in the tank to overcome the weaponry of Newcastle United, Arsenal got past a wind-powered Sheffield United and Harry Maguire denied us penalties with his late winner against Norwich. Was this Marcus Speller’s deliberate attempt at black magic-based sabotage?  Over in the Premier League we zero in on praise for James Ward-Prowse and Danny Ings, while in the Championship Neil Warnock is back with an immediate bang! We have a global offering for you today, featuring a wonder-assist from Santi Cazorla, Ronaldinho’s latest ambition and the German word known as “Lingerkeg”.

On today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard, we look back on perhaps the most enjoyable game of the 1994 World Cup, alongside the New York Times’ Rory Smith!  Despite the fallout from Diego Maradona’s drug ban casting a shadow over their tournament, this enviable Argentina team and cohort of Romanian superstars were probably the tournament’s two best sides. We revel in the chaotic game that unfolded between them, featuring cracking goals from Eastern European football royalty and technical quality that belied the sweltering heat in Pasadena.

Luke, Marcus and Jim are here and Liverpool have finally done it! They had to wait 30 years, and then a little bit more, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that they do not care. Where do they rank among the best Premier League winners of all time? Tune in to find out! We look back over Chelsea’s win over Man City in what was, fittingly, probably the best game since the restart, look over our favourite moments of the FA Cup so far ahead of its return and indulge in a surprising amount of Coventry chat.  Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballrambledaily.com  ***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

Liverpool breeze past Crystal Palace with a precision bordering on the unnerving, and now find themselves a whisker away from their first Premier League title for 30 years. Not to be outdone, an Anthony Martial-inspired Man United swipe Sheffield United aside, while Newcastle and Aston Villa duke out a draw and Serie A goes goal mad.

The Premier League ain’t stopping, and neither are we! Jules Breach, Luke Moore and Vithushan Ehantharajah are back with another episode of the Football Ramble, as this festival of summer football continues. On today’s show, we begin by reflecting on Tottenham’s distinctly underwhelming win over West Ham. Vish was there in the press box and talks us through the procedures involved for the visiting press and the peculiarities of reporting on a turgid game in an empty stadium. We also discuss Brighton’s hard-earned point at Leicester, as the Foxes’ faltering performances before lockdown seem to continue. And, much like two cartoon TV villains returning for yet another season, we celebrate the return of Neil Warnock and ponder Arsenal’s decision to hastily announce David Luiz’s contract extension.

Kate Mason, Andy Brassell and Jim Campbell are here to discuss another frustrating turn of events as some utter prat paid a numpty in a plane to deliberately miss the point of a global push for equality. Ben Mee and Burnley themselves spoke out eloquently and commendably about a bad situation that needs to be addressed.  In the football itself, Phil Foden shone, a lockdown plus reveals itself as Antonio Conte is now more audible from the sidelines and we give a wave to La Liga conspiracy merchant Gerard Pique.

Well, what a weekend of Premier League football that was! Marcus Speller, Pete Donaldson and Vithusan Ehantharajah are here to dissect it all on a brand new episode of the Football Ramble! Newcastle four-month unbeaten run continued with a win over Sheffield United - though Pete is still reluctant to praise goalscoring machine Joelinton - while Neal Maupay delivered some of that Premier League #narrative we’ve been craving as Brighton beat Arsenal. Elsewhere, we touch on Wolves’ win over West Ham that featured some alarming sounds from Davíd Moyes and round up the latest Championship results, as teams scramble for promotion and Aleksandar Mitrović has grown his wild mane out.

Ramble Meets... Jason Euell

Ramble Meets... Jason Euell

2020-06-2101:03:06

On today's Ramble Meets... episode, Andy Brassell is joined by former Charlton and Wimbledon forward, turned coach, Jason Euell!  Jason burst onto the scene when he scored a remarkable volley on his Wimbledon debut, before establishing himself as a first-team regular and fan favourite across his eleven years with The Dons and Charlton Athletic. He sits down with Andy to discuss learning his craft in that post-Crazy Gang era at Wimbledon, enjoying his best years at Charlton and his determination to rise through the coaching ranks. He also gives his erudite and engaging thoughts on the opportunities available to black coaches in the game and what can be done to promote much-needed diversity throughout the football hierarchy.

On today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard, the New York Times’ Tariq Panja joins us to remember one of the most raucous football atmospheres he’s ever experienced, where his laptop “consistently bounced off the table in the press box for the full 120 minutes.”  Tariq, Marcus and Jonathan reminisce about an error-ridden match where Turkey looked certain to go out as the game unfolded and Croatian pressure started to mount. Drama late in extra-time, a chaotic penalty shoot-out and a frantic battle to get to a European Championship semi-final ensured this was truly a game to remember.

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!
