What would your dad think?

Spurs take some pressure off Arsenal with an embarrassing video, Jurgen Klopp's defence continues to wobble and Jose Mourinho is intent on destroying the Carabao Cup. As if that isn't enough there are David Seaman decoys, further incongruous unveiling and a Joey Barton anecdote featuring an old favourite. Here's a clue; Marcus enjoyed it very much.

Come Down to the Algarve

The boys take much delight in Luke having his backside burned in the hot seat, Arsenal manage to not disgrace themselves on the TV away from home and Marcus will not let up on his fantasy of going on holiday with Ronald Koeman, despite his recent run of bad results. Elsewhere there's love for the record-equalling Gareth Barry, the Guangzhou Evergrande plot thickens and Harry Redknapp is finally getting to spend more time with his golf clubs. T'rrific!

Hornet in the Wind

Get ready for a bumper edition of football strangeness this week as Andre Villas-Boas brings forth a contender for best conspiracy theory ever, we hear of some confusingly sporting behaviour from Sevilla boss Eduardo Berizzo, and bear witness to a punchy prediction from #Moorestradamus for our best bet with bet365. Elsewhere, Liverpool legend Roy Hodgson is back in the dugout (although sadly not at Anfield), we're privy to Pete's 'alternative' emails and the Wolves PR team strike another...

Frank de Boer's time at Crystal Palace is no de moer, Chris Sutton defends the honour of Sadio Mane's flying boot and even Mark Hughes thinks this whole handshake thing is getting a bit silly. Elsewhere Jose Mourinho's fashion sense is starting to come into question, we hear from Luke Skywalker and medieval weaponry makes a welcome return.

The Football Ramble. DG.

We open the show with talk of exciting opportunities for John Motson as he retires from the BBC, digs from Jamie Vardy and the rumble of yet more planes overhead. ALREADY. Meanwhile we also gain some insight into West Ham's behind the scenes omnishambles and unspeakable things happen in some beds and swimming pools, and all because of Neymar, apparently. DG. This show is sponsored by bet365.

Chris Sutton: Origins

It's international week and England are almost in Russia, Wales and Northern Ireland continue to impress and Ruud Gullit keeps causing trouble with his camera. Elsewhere we reminisce about Pete the zookeeper, Sergio Ramos gets a surprise and we hear from Hearts of Oak.

Probably the Best of The Peatles

International week is upon us and we have cameos from our beloved D-Beck, a resurgent David Villa and the ever-bubbling Sergio Ramos. Elsewhere there are notes from an elite meeting of managerial minds and a very creative application of one of the most famous roles in football.

Meat Fighter 2: Nottingham Edition

Mike Dean reminds us all who this is really about, the Pulis Derby provides the usual fireworks - off the pitch, obviously - and there's more of the same from Arsenal. It really is getting much harder to know what to say about them. On top of that there are flying fists among Forest fans for the most noble of reasons and despite their win at the weekend Newcastle suffer a damning assessment from the local pigeon community. Something Pete is presumably completely in favour of...

Bye-Bye, Mr American Pie

England's Wayne Rooney is now simply Wayne Rooney once more, Benjamin Mendy takes some time to settle into the parking regulations of his new surroundings and Jurgen Klopp turns it up to 11. Heavy metal football! If that isn't enough we also hear of a young Luke's rash consumer choices and an interesting plan to remodel St James' Park from our dear Pete, who is obviously pleased that his beloved Newcastle lost yet another game. To get in touch, hit us up at This...

Oh Jesé You're So Fine

This week Chelsea drum up a win at the Home of Spurs, Man United continue to maraud under Mourinho and there's the usual stuff like coincidental code words and aggressive US based printer issues. Seriously Trey, can you hand these out for me please? Woo! Also, Pete gets yet another lookalike, one with huge ramifications, and Newcastle ruin his weekend yet again. Elsewhere the eponymous Jesé gets revenge for our earlier comments but undeterred, Moorestradamus has another prediction...

This week we get a welcome breath of fresh air in the Champions League as Brendan Rodgers rolls into town to run his mouth all over Liverpool's win in Hoffenheim, we visit Stoke's last chance saloon and Steve Claridge is still, well, Steve Claridge. We also look ahead to the beano that will be Newcastle's visit to Spurs' visit to Wembley and Gareth Barry goes on and on and on and on in his quest to become the world's most boring record breaker. Meanwhile there's just about enough time to...

Stamford Bridge is Falling Down

Well, what a start to the Premier League that was! The boys get stuck in to all the big stories from the opening weekend in the top flight, a league which seems to have its heart set on getting more and more ridiculous as the seasons go on. There's also chat about the red cards that have been popping up all over the UK including a truly incredible contribution from our friends north of the border, as well as a mention for Cristiano Ronaldo who enjoyed what can only be described as a...

Hellas Boring

Let's be honest, last season was great and all but it just isn't the same without our beloved Newcastle United. And now The Entertainers are back and already providing us with plenty of fun, albeit this time with just a touch more thrift. On top of that there's big talk from Danny Rose, glances towards Everton's ambitions, the return of Gary Megson and, of course, Pete's fleshy back. Don't ask. This show is sponsored by bet365

The Totally Total Show

We're back! Clearly! After a summer bare of football but smothered in madness we discuss the glittering showpiece magic of the Community Shield, the new ABBA penalty system and once again struggle to catch up with what represents value in the transfer market. Elsewhere there's a party at Villa Park as John Terry starts to 'put down roots', Yeovil have unwelcome admin issues and there's a welcome return for one or two old favourites...

The Hilario Sequence

Arsenal won the FA Cup! Ha! Brilliant. The game is relived with varying degrees of enthusiasm, as is the play off final, which was frankly another one in the eye for British managers. On top of this there are cup wins from all over the place, we discover some massive gaps in our film knowledge and updates on swimming pool maths and henges, of course. Find us online at, @footballramble on Twitter and on Facebook.
