Jim, the God of Football

Is İlkay Gündoğan turning into the German Roy Keane? Can anyone stop Jim from turning into the God of Football? And will Kevin Keegan EVER stop hosting industry conferences? A listener has a fresh update for us...


Marcus, Jim, Andy and Vish are here to look back on the final round of Euro 2024 qualifiers, where Wales fell short of automatic qualification and now face the play-offs. We wonder whether people potentially have unreasonable expectations for this current Wales squad.

  • Ramble Reacts: Palace hold on and Roy bows out

    For perhaps the final time, Roy Hodgson leaves the managerial arena. And what more fitting tribute to his career than being mentioned in the same breath as Steve Bruce hustling for the South Korea job, eh?Pete and Andy react to a night at Goodison Park that was somehow both open and cagey as Everton and Crystal Palace split the points! Elsewhere, Andy reveals why Oliver Glasner could get Palace challenging for Europe in the long-term and they discuss whether Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s finishing will ever catch up with his looks again. Plus, there really are more horrendous managerial links than you can shake a stick at – including Bayern Munich sniffing around for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. That’s right, Ole Gunnar Bloody Solskjaer.
