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.

Those Chipolinas: England excite, West Ham host Spurs and Jose Mourinho pops in to see his ex at Stamford Bridge

Whenever England win convincingly we receive a lot of correspondence that gleefully anticipates the reaction of our dear Marcus Speller. If you’re one of the people who sends us such correspondence; you will not be disappointed. We revel in the victory of Southgate’s Soldiers, barely able to contain our joy before heading back to the good old Premier League.  There we find Spurs sneaking under the radar as they prepare for a trip to West Ham, Mike Dean limbering up for one of his biggest gigs of the season in the form of Chelsea vs Man United and Wolves and Watford preparing for an intriguing ding dong.  Note: This show also features behind the scenes jingle related confessions.  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.

Unplugged: England meet Croatia again, Scotland have a day to seize and Wales host Spain

The UEFA Nations League returns and Gareth’s Guys prepare to face Croatia behind closed doors with a couple of Marcuses in there. Just don’t get relegated, guys.  It’s an exciting and intriguing week as there’s some exciting yoot throughout the competition, which we touch on before coming up with some Original Content about Ryan Giggs, talking about Nando’s black cards and learning about Pete’s storage options.  It only seems right to tell you now that there is a double dose of Kevin Keegan, and warn you that we’ve set you some homework about old memes. Your key words are “Beefy” and “Taffin”.

Adult diapers: Man United slip up at Brighton, Chelsea and Arsenal duke out a thriller, and Steve McClaren is up to his old tricks

Here we go again! The Ramble's back for your aural delectation! To kick us off this week, Manchester United slip up on the south coast much to Brighton's delight, and Chelsea squeak past a profligate Arsenal at Stamford Bridge. Elsewhere in the Premier League Watford pick up a lovely result at Burnley, Spurs ease past Fulham, and Luke is particularly animated about West Ham's defending (or lack of it), something that would have undoubtedly won the award for most pathetic backline display of the weekend, had Steve McClaren not got his greasy mitts all over QPR. There's also time for more WhatsApp goodness, a Fort William FC update and some Big Neville Southall-related activity into the bargain. Yes, sir! ***Please take the time to rate and review us on iTunes or wherever you get your pods. It means a great deal to the show and will make it easier for other potential listeners to find us.
