About Us

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 Friday. 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.

Latest Episodes

A José Mourinho vintage, Leicester headbutt their ceiling, and Danny Welbeck rolls back the years

EIf the international break was a scary, alien concept fraught with uncertainty, then this weekend’s Premier League action was like putting on your favourite jumper. Snuggle in with Marcus, Pete and Vish as we mull it all over on today’s episode of the Football Ramble! A vintage José Mourinho performance - on the touchline and in subsequent interviews - helped Spurs to an important win over Man City. Elsewhere, Liverpool looked like their rabid old selves against Leicester and Danny Welbeck made us all feel safe again with his delightful goal for Brighton – assisted by fellow England throwback, Adam Lallana.

England put Iceland to the sword, Wales take their seat at the top table, and how to greet Sir Alex Ferguson

Big nights for Scotland and Northern Ireland, a seventeen-year-old scout, and is Ronaldo coming home?

EVish is back and his nerves are jangling for the Scots. But the Snodfather and an intimidatingly jovial Steve Clark appear to be ready for a historic night in Belgrade.
