Marcus, Jim and Vish are here with just enough time to bid Sam Allardyce farewell, seeing as West Brom will need to sack him before registering another home league win. Sorry, Big Sam, them’s the stats. Elsewhere, we got a nostalgic reminder of safer times across the rest of the weekend’s action, with both Willian and Gareth Bale looking more like their old selves. Then, Man City reminded us of their previous recent selves with yet another win, and we hear from a listener who is related to Portuguese football royalty!

Marcus, Luke and Andy settle in after the Europa League’s usual mix of the good, bad and ugly to look ahead to some tasty Premier League ties. Join us for The Preview Show, sponsored by Betway!Ahead of a tricky test at Chelsea on Sunday, Man United gave some young players more minutes last night – the rest of the academy went to Lee Sharpe’s for a 2000-person BBQ. Liverpool and West Brom desperately need a win from their respective matches, though Big Sam thinks he’ll just coast into another job soon enough. And speaking of coasting, Alan Pardew has opened up about swapping relegation battles for royal rumbles over at CSKA Sofia.Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

As it turned out, the main sparkle in Man City’s autonomous win over Borussia Mönchengladbach could be found on the sidelines. Kate, Luke and Pete are here to give Pep Guardiola’s ghastly jacket the kicking it truly deserves.Spurs also continued their leisurely stroll into the last sixteen of the Europa League with another win over Wolfsberger – even Dele Alli and Gareth Bale scored some nice ones!

Despite VAR’s best efforts, parkour enthusiast Olivier Giroud took a break from his modelling to score an absolute worldie in last night’s Champions League. Kate, Jim and Andy are here to revel in the beauty of the man and his goal.Elsewhere, we rue Jamail Musiala’s decision to represent Germany rather than our brave boys - when have those serial winners ever even won anything? We also check out Everton’s new waterfront home and pick through the swathes of football documentaries coming to screens (and Andy’s nightmares) very soon.Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

Like a wise old panther used to a heist or two, Roy the Boy comes away from the Amex with all three points. Vish and Pete have the unenviable task of trying to restrain Jules on today’s Ramble!We look back at the smouldering wreckage last night but also look ahead to better times: being together in the summer, sharing in England’s latest catastrophe and listening to Zlatan Ibrahimović’s concert while our eardrums bleed. Lovely. Elsewhere, we check in with Sunderland’s new infant owner and some concerning developments in Bristol where Barton is mobilising an army…Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

It seems Duncan Ferguson’s chaotic Ying and Carlo Ancelotti’s ice-cool Yang is the perfect recipe for a historic derby win for Everton. What a result for the Toffees!Marcus, Vish and Jim are here with more news from the Barclays, as Man City win again and Fulham are snapping at Newcastle’s heels. Elsewhere, Jesse Lingard’s relentless vibes keep the West Ham party going, Ryan Shawcross swaps Stoke for Miami and Bristol is braced for a brutal war between Nigel Pearson and Joey Barton.

After a quick whip around the remaining European action, we look ahead to a proper spicy weekend of Premier League football on today’s episode of The Preview Show, sponsored by Betway!Marcus, Vish and Luke wonder whether The Punisher (Gareth Bale) will start against West Ham, as cool cat José Mourinho has started hanging out with the youngsters. Elsewhere, Jurgen Klopp has been stoking the fires ahead of the Merseyside derby, Arsenal dive for cover from another Man City missile and we hear the glorious tale of Europe’s answer to fake footballer extraordinaire, Carlos Kaiser.

Like an Ehantharajah PE lesson, everyone’s abandoned the title race and pitched up in the beer garden.Marcus, Andy and Vish react to Man City’s latest cruel display, which had our favourite football tactics pervert purring over Bernardo Silva. Elsewhere, Fulham’s optimism was ground down at Burnley and we take a closer look at how Dyche deals with snakes in the dressing room (it’s absolutely brutal). There’s also news of the former Juventus defender who has reportedly been arrested for a very unique post-retirement activity. And speaking of retirement, Louis van Gaal has vigorously defended his honour in a very strongly-worded email.

A lads’ trip to Budapest looks to have done the trick for Liverpool’s knackered squad, as they swept aside RB Leipzig and a peculiarly underdressed Julian Nagelsmann last night. Kate, Luke and Pete are here to settle back into that comfy armchair on today’s episode of the Ramble - join us!We also marvel at the imperious Kylian Mbappé, whose classy hat-trick left the Barcelona defence berating each other and Ronald Koeman scratching his weary head. We also wonder how social media companies can dutifully protect footballers after James McClean’s recent comments and look into Norwich City’s latest purchase: the SoccerBot360.

Steve Bruce insisted that nothing about Newcastle’s approach would change without Callum Wilson – and seeing how they underwhelmed and lost handsomely, perhaps he’s right… Jules, Jim and Andy are here after Chelsea’s clock finally struck Timo Time and David Moyes cast out those poor Sheffield United souls, thus making them available for his next doomed voyage. Elsewhere, there’s chaos in the National League, a recent Chester FC Zoom chat took a saucy turn and the Champions League is back! Though Neymar, predictably, is not.Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

Like wee Willie Johnston, Man City have got their foot on the Premier League’s windpipe and they’re not taking it off.Kate, Jim and Pete cast their eyes over an incredibly aesthetically appeasing weekend of football, ruined only by Fernandes’ dirty little shinned volley.Elsewhere, Alisson meets his new teammate, Kevin Keegan blows out the candles and Martin Tyler comes up with his own breathy rendition of Chocolate Rain.Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

With the latest round of FA Cup fixtures sorted, we turn our attention to this weekend’s Premier League action on today’s episode of The Preview Show, sponsored by Betway!Marcus, Luke and Jim wonder if Spurs will have some commemorative lanyards made should they get a result against Man City. We’ll also see the long-awaited rematch between Ezgjan Alioski and Nicolas Pépé at the Emirates - a game which the polite hosts will almost certainly lose - before the Prodigal Son returns home.

One night there’s none of that Cup Magic™️, the next we’re swimming in it! Marcus, Andy and Vish dust themselves off after that 9-goal humdinger at Goodison Park and settle in for a new episode of the Football Ramble - join us!Elsewhere in the FA Cup, Man City press pause on the Jaws soundtrack as they continue to swim away from everyone else – but Andy’s still not convinced about their Champions League chances. We also thank Kelechi Iheanacho for doing everyone a favour by avoiding extra-time in Leicester vs Brighton, while Yaya Touré has begun his managerial journey in Ukraine!Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

Jules, Luke and Vish are here off the back of two of the least interesting cup ties imaginable - where was that Magic™️?! Donny van de Beek struggled on as Man United laboured past West Ham, while Burnley just about got their team sheet submitted in time before losing to Bournemouth. Thankfully, Neil Warnock provided some sparkle by hurling abuse from the sideline of a Middlesbrough U23s match. Meanwhile, Liverpool auctioned off various sofas and signed Roy Hodgson photos from their old training ground.

Like many of his Leeds United teammates, Patrick Bamford continues to settle nicely into the Premier League routine - and he’s now scored 100 career goals! Marcus, Pete and Andy are here to celebrate this milestone after Leeds’ win over Crystal Palace.Elsewhere, some old school André-Pierre Gignac flavour helped Tigres to their first Club World Cup final, where they should face Bayern Munich - if their plane ever takes off from Brandenburg airport. Meanwhile, AFC Bournemouth’s caretaker boss Jonathan Woodgate fired up the Knapp signal and Max Kruse dishes out the usual footballers’ advice over on his Clubhouse account.Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

Kate, Jim and Pete are here with a title race postmortem after Man City’s hugely impressive win at Anfield put further distance between themselves and the chasing pack. Unsuprisingly, Roy Keane was full of that reserved, constructive criticism we’ve come to expect from him after those bizarre Alisson errors. We also look over some other goalfests from this weekend’s action, as Duncan Ferguson’s bear hugs injured several Everton players and Newcastle clung on to the three points that an emotionally battered Southampton tried to prize from their hands. It could be worse for Southampton, mind: we also hear of one Brazilian forward who has received an eight-game ban for whipping out a particular celebration...Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

Where else to start other than in Scotland, where a Hamilton commentator set a new gold standard for football broadcasting this week.Thankfully, Marcus, Andy and Luke are taking no such liberties on today’s Preview Show, sponsored by Betway! We talk about the fallout from Spurs’ defeat to Chelsea where there are big questions for Mourinho. But do we deserve an answer?Elsewhere, Bruce takes his cue and readies Andy Carroll and a deep defensive block for the visit of Southampton. Plus, we bid a fond farewell to Marcos Rojo and reacquaint ourselves with an old friend.Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

Despite another inevitable defeat at the hands of Man City, Sean Dyche showed he is really full of surprises yesterday. Presumably he’s also full of Croydon salad, too.Jules, Jim and Vish react to Brighton’s latest scalp, as Dan Burn ushers in a new era of incredibly lanky wingers. We also take stock of J-Lingz’s triumphant return - who better act fast if he doesn't want to lose his clothing and pistachio deals to the 8-year-old in Santos who has signed with Nike.

Oh dear, Southampton fans. Not only did your team ship nine goals for the second season in a row, but a delighted Luke Moore is on today’s show. He’s joined by Kate and Pete to pick through the startling, smouldering rubble left behind at Old Trafford.There were some other chaotic results in last night’s Premier League action, as Sheffield United began the long and daunting climb to safety while David Luiz left his grubby, predictable paw prints all over Arsenal’s bizarre loss at Wolves. Speaking of bizarre, André Villas-Boas' reign at Marseille has come to a salty end - is he lining himself up for the Newcastle job?

A flurry of late transfers rounded off what was a much quieter Deadline Day than usual. Join Kate, Andy and Pete to take stock of the window’s movers and shakers, as Newcastle missed out on Neymar and had to settle for Joe Willock instead.Liverpool did sign some much needed defensive cover, as Schalke’s Ozan Kabak and Preston North End’s Ben Davies join their depleted ranks. We also reminisce about some delightful pettiness from Jesé, hear of Antonio Cassano’s sugary cravings and celebrate Michael Owen’s new role in the global effort against the pandemic.

Marcus, Jim and Vish cast their eyes over an all right weekend of football which fortunately threw in a funny named Dutch striker and some goals.Newcastle get the lift they needed with a European Cup triumph, but Bruce is already flying high with all his fan mail. Elsewhere, Tuchel bagged his first win, but can’t hug Werner into goalscoring form, while over at Leeds everyone's included in Papa Bielsa's warm embrace. Especially Kalvin Phillips, though - apparently he’s free to marry both his daughters.Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your pods.

We can only assume that “genius” doesn’t mean what Pep Guardiola thinks it does, after Man City heartlessly battered Big Sam’s struggling West Brom. Marcus, Vish and Jim are here to pick up the pieces after that demolition on today’s episode of the Ramble!Elsewhere, there is due praise reserved for West Ham manager and hovercraft captain David Moyes, as they move up to fourth on the back of yet more unsung brilliance.
