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.


Jules & Andy: The FA Cup's dwindling magic, how the tournament can find it again, and some potential January transfers

Has the FA Cup lost some of its sparkle? What are the big teams’ attitudes towards the tournament? These are a few of the questions we’re trying to answer on today’s brand new episode of Jules & Andy!

After a mixed set of results from the third round this weekend, we debate how significant a place the Cup still holds in football’s television-dominated environment. We suggest some ways to help recapture the magic of past FA Cups, including moving the semi-finals away from Wembley and incentivising teams to take it more seriously, while Jules recounts some of her favourite memories of watching it as a fan. Elsewhere, we discuss some of the potential movers and shakers in this January’s transfer window, as Arsenal need some new personnel in defence and Manchester United could do with some creativity.
