Trouser hook machines: Liverpool go clear, Man City show they’re human, Spurs march on

We’re back, full of Christmas cheer, mountains of food and opinions on the lashings upon lashings of festive football that have happened since we last recorded a show.  Can Jurgen Klopp be measured enough to sustain a title challenge? Can Spurs keep up their form and push for the title? Does Pep Guardiola develop unsightly blemishes if Man City drop points? All this and more, inside! We also discuss The Legend of Eden Hazard, enjoy a festive game and receive some delightfully inebriated correspondence from you lot. Merry Christmas!

Think of the shareholders: Wolves beat Chelsea, spoils are shared at Old Trafford and Southampton get their man

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas after a dizzying round of midweek fixtures. We’re here to look at Wolves wobbling Chelsea’s wheels, Man United and Arsenal having a strange old contest of Who Can Score the Weirdest Goal and look ahead to Cardiff and Southampton scrapping for those delicious points.  We also discover the surprising depth of Pete’s affection for Man United’s fans and board, make some bold(ish) predictions about Andros Townsend’s season and hear about some wonderful science that we all definitely understand.  This show is sponsored by bet365 Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@thefootballramble.com ***Please take the time to rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you get your pods.

Dayo: Scotland are promoted, Ireland need a new manager and the Premier League returns

What a fun weekend of international football we’ve had, and what a fun weekend of Premier League football we’re about to have! We chat about Scotland’s promotion, Ireland’s bound-to-be-entertaining search for a new manager, the retirement of flag-punching legend Tim Cahill and Gianni Infantino’s novel approach to what should probably be private discussions. Back in domestic football we welcome Claudio Ranieri back to England, rub thighs in anticipation of Spurs vs Chelsea and rub chins ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Bournemouth.  And if you’re worried that we missed it, we absolutely talk about Patrice Evra sucking a raw chicken.  This show is sponsored by bet365 Search ‘Football Ramble’ on social media to find us, and email us here: show@thefootballramble.com ***Please take the time to rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you get your pods.

Camposflage: Rooney returns, Ranieri also returns, while Wales and Scotland step up

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for; Wayne Rooney’s international return! The Rooniverse has been a barren, empty place since the great man retired and finally Gareth Southgate is putting a stop to all this ‘looking forward’ nonsense by bringing it back to the good old days. Jesus.  As well as all that international relegation becomes a possibility for the first time, with Ireland and Northern Ireland looking to avoid it, Wales find a player down the back of the sofa (in Belgium) and we have some gossip about Pete and a very special lady.
