Episodes

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.

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.

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.

Where Moyes fears to tread
