Ramble Reacts: The Theatre of Nightmares

Marcus and Vish react to a chaotic Champions League night in Copenhagen, which saw Manchester United swing between good, bad, good again, and then - finally - ugly.


From Marcus Rashford’s red, to the two handballs, to a 17-year old literally called Roony scoring the winner, to Vish’s impending lobotomy, there’s a lot to talk about! Come join us!
