Top of the group, bottom of the barrel

Somehow, England have finished top of their group. And somehow, they’re in the best side of the draw. The plan worked!Marcus, Luke, Vish and Pete react to a drab 0-0 that saw no big changes from the previous game and leaves them thinking there are bigger problems with England’s front line. At least we can cling to Anthony Gordon and Cole Palmer. Oh, and we can still enjoy a nice glass of Budweiser with Geoff Hurst, of course.Plus, a former Romanian international has a conspiracy theory and the departing Scotland team get an unwelcome Bavarian surprise.Thank you to everyone who came down to last night's England Watchalong!

On a related note, Marcus also tells us how a “jocular slap” from Sean Dyche almost ruined Everton’s warm weather training camp.Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and YouTube, and email us here: show@footballramble.com.Sign up to the Football Ramble Patreon for ad-free shows for just $5 per month: patreon.com/footballramble.***Please take the time to rate us on Spotify.

Ramble Reacts: Chelsea win and Poch goes for dinner

Chelsea delivered a huge blow to Newcastle’s ambitions for the rest of the season – and a huge blow to Andy Brassell’s hopes of watching them play the runners-up from the Slovenian top-flight next season in the Europa Conference League. And that’s all coming from what could have been the real True Geordie, Pete Donaldson.Andy joins Pete to react to Chelsea’s 3-2 win over an increasingly beleaguered Newcastle, who Pete describes with probably the most unflattering simile in the history of football analysis. The lads discuss a chaotic game where Cole Palmer dazzled again, Mykhailo Mudryk thankfully didn’t offer out another fan again, and Mauricio Pochettino didn’t cancel dinner with his wife again.

Best of the Football Ramble 2023 (Part 1)

Today, we’re throwing it back to the start of 2023 and reliving some of our favourite Ramble moments!The final stretch of the 2022/23 season saw some “proper gubbings", including Liverpool's seven-goal demolition of Man United. Oh, and don't forget the poor bloke who went to fill up his car and returned to his radio to find Spurs 5-0 down to Newcastle. The first half of 2023 of course also featured Andy losing his head at Luke during a game of Jack’s Encyclopaedia and our glorious trip to Wembley!
