Football Ramble

The Preview Show: James Water-Prowse

The Europa League returned last night and it was nice of Thames Water to honour the occasion by flooding the London Stadium.


Pete, Luke and Vish are here today to wade through that and also to try to decide what pop star should replace the Michael Jackson statue outside Craven Cottage. Plus, they get excited for the North London Derby which Luke officially crowns as Barn Burner of the Weekend.

Ignore all the nervous sweat.The lads discuss England’s messy draw with Denmark and figure out what needs to happen next as Trent Alexander-Arnold (probably) exits the midfield, Jude Bellingham goes full Alan Pardew, and the left wing remains completely empty. Plus, we discuss our respective icks after Italy’s most handsome man scores an own goal and Marcus discovers the best ever name in football.

  • A uranium rod up the arse

  • The perfect game of football

    54:45
    Turkey 3-1 Georgia. Otherwise known as: the perfect game of football. Today, Marcus, Luke and Vish are here to once again explain why you simply must watch every game at the Euros. Imagine missing that barn burner, eh?Elsewhere, Luke enjoys Cristiano Ronaldo’s transformation into an unfashionable No.9, which brings us back to the age-old question: is Ronaldo better than Niall Quinn?

  • Short kings pod only

    42:04
    Day Five and we have our first big upset of the tournament! Andy and Vish react to that, while Pete is of course wondering how this new microphone-in-a-ball technology can be used for other purposes…We also design a new mask for Kylian Mbappé after he goes full Steve Bruce, the culinary wars continue on the streets of Germany – anyone fancy punching a Yorkshire pudding? – and Romania make Ukraine even darker horses.

  • It’s all a bit Sven’s England

    51:24
    One word to describe England’s win over Serbia: eeeeeeeeaaazayyyyyyy! A few more words you could use: a conservative, cautionary reminder of England teams of old that might serve them well in games to come.Luke and Andy are on hand to reassure Marcus and Jim after England battled through against a physical, handy Serbian side. We talk Jude Bellingham, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and whether England are conservative or controlling. Elsewhere, Christian Eriksen serves up some magic and Ronald Koeman delivers a Jogi Low-style meme for the ages!We're back on stage and tickets are out NOW!

  • A kettle full of spaghetti

    41:44

Today Pete, Jim and Andy are here to answer some of the big questions, including: How handsome is Riccardo Calafiori? And can you cook spaghetti in a kettle?Elsewhere, the Ramblers also have their say on some of the key debates that are already taking over the tournament: Which country has the best fashion?

  • A sad Scottish buffet

    48:11
    Oh dear Scotland… and to think things started so well when a penis was seen before the tournament had even started. Today, Pete, Luke and Vish are here to sympathise with the Scottish fans, despite a pretty woeful performance of the players on the pitch. Positive Peter is still giving the Scots one more chance, however. Elsewhere, the lads ponder how good Germany actually are and Luke and Vish honour some excellent dad behaviour from Ian Maatsen’s father.We're back on stage and tickets are out NOW!
