Peter Cheque  

This week we're expanding our horizons by making sitcom pitches and marveling as Sunderland go down in sulky flames and try to bring everyone with them. There's a surprising u-turn on managerial genius Harold Redknapp, Pompey achieve something the Hatton Garden gang would be proud of and there are yet more reminders that life isn't fair.

Premier League Preview Show: 5th May 2017  

The Champions League is mulled over as the big guns get there way before we look ahead to thrills at the top of the table, spills at the bottom and a fixture that was once box office but is now decidedly more arthouse. As well as this we have a pitch for a Neville brothers themed TV show, a goalkeeper as old as some precious metals and a new entry into the Ramble lexicon.

Sunderland, we hardly knew ye

Ball Fondlers  

On this week's Ramble we have election fever, FA Cup fever and to a lesser degree Tim Sherwood fever. On top of this there's Sergio Ramos doing what he does worst, digs from a certain Mr Redknapp and news of a shyness that is criminally adorable. Find us online at thefootballramble.com, @footballramble on Twitter and facebook.com/footballramble on Facebook.

Rat storage  

A superb week for the South coast as Brighton, Portsmouth and Plymouth all get promoted. Forget all that though, as there's the MASSIVE news of Harry Redknapp flying back into the game.

Ed Balls  

We're back after a weekend of football with talk of piggybacks, Paul Bearer impressions and listener generated news of Brendan Rodgers' dinner chat.

Premier League Preview Show: 7th April 2017

Squaregopusher  

Do we have a title race on?! Maybe... While that's potentially happening there's long overdue eagle justice, a feisty Merseyside derby and yet more incredibly confusing mascots.

International Preview Show: 24th March 2017  

The Festival of Lukas Podolski is sadly over and we hope you're well recovered from the thrill of it all. Thankfully there's international football aplenty to fill that void.

We were relegated before the ship even sank  

Football moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
