Football Ramble

Pep's drum and bass

International football is back, people! Marcus, Luke, Andy and Vish discuss reports that the FA are eyeing up Pep Guardiola with Gareth Southgate set to leave after the Euros… and quickly decide that leaving Pep to his own devices for months on end would be a terrible idea.


We also discuss Mauro Icardi’s new car and Michael Owen reaching new levels of pointlessness. And there’s the small matter of Jordan Henderson’s first interview since moving to Saudi Arabia - we have an honest conversation about him and his England selection!

    Oh dear Scotland… and to think things started so well when a penis was seen before the tournament had even started.
