Football Ramble

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.

Portsmouth triumphed gloriously in the FA Cup in 2007/08, laying to waste everyone in their path including a pathetic iteration of a Manchester United team on their own patch.

Just when we all thought the summer of 2008 would be nothing to shout about given England's capitulation in trying to qualify for the European Championships, those beautiful boys in blue came through and warmed all of our hearts in fine fashion by lifting that FA Cup trophy high above everyone's heads on a balmy day in May at the Home of Football. The less said about what happened after that, the better.
