Football Ramble

David Raya’s big hands

Believe it or not there was some Premier League action last night, even if Jim did have to take the train to France to watch it on TV. Today, Luke and Jim are joined by Pete who’s in the chair to do a 6/10 job of hosting the Ramble (his own words).


The Ramblers discuss Michael Beale using burner accounts on Twitter (currently known as X), Luke reveals he saw Steve Parish and Oliver Glasner having a romantic day out, and they link Jason Statham with the Assistant Manager position at Crystal Palace.

  • Barclays Barnburners Deluxe™

    01:06:20
    Marcus, Luke, Vish and Pete return after Man City 0-0 Arsenal to find the barn very much intact. Wasn’t even remotely burned. Pep Guardiola still found plenty to be angry about, of course.Luckily there were plenty of other Barclays bangers to get stuck into, as Man United somehow escaped Brentford with a point, West Ham somehow lost a crazy game at Newcastle, and Chelsea somehow remain the most mid-table club in the division. According to Mauricio Pochettino, anyway - he thinks they should be fourth, you see. Plus, Pete’s clumsy South Korean adventures and Mark Puppetmaster Clattenburg’s at it again - join us for a Bank Holiday blockbuster! Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and YouTube, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.Sign up to the Football Ramble Patreon for ad-free shows for just $5 per month: patreon.com/footballramble.***Please take the time to rate us on Spotify.
