We have our FA Cup quarter-final lineup! And – oh no – Pete sees who Newcastle have drawn while recording the show. But which better Ramble shoulder to cry on than Luke’s?Pete and Luke reflect on a laboured victory for Manchester United that kept them in the hat and another night of Antony being the most predictable winger in the world.

Small Donny energy

After last night’s FA Cup action, we’re one step closer to Pete spending a load of money so he can watch Newcastle lose to Man City at Wembley.

Ramble Reacts: Take a Bowen

Jarrod Bowen scored his first senior hat-trick and, in an amazing turn of events, it’s got Andy waving the Bowen for England flag harder than Marcus! Probably because he’s too busy waving his Neal Maupay for France flag, to be honest…Marcus and Andy react to an entertaining game at the London Stadium. The “is David Moyes the right man for West Ham?” debate still rages on though as Andy compares it to Brexit.

David Raya’s big hands

Believe it or not there was some Premier League action last night, even if Jim did have to take the train to France to watch it on TV.

Ramble Reacts: Palace hold on and Roy bows out

For perhaps the final time, Roy Hodgson leaves the managerial arena. And what more fitting tribute to his career than being mentioned in the same breath as Steve Bruce hustling for the South Korea job, eh?Pete and Andy react to a night at Goodison Park that was somehow both open and cagey as Everton and Crystal Palace split the points! Elsewhere, Andy reveals why Oliver Glasner could get Palace challenging for Europe in the long-term and they discuss whether Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s finishing will ever catch up with his looks again. Plus, there really are more horrendous managerial links than you can shake a stick at – including Bayern Munich sniffing around for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. That’s right, Ole Gunnar Bloody Solskjaer.

A skulleted fiend

Ivory Coast won AFCON! Managerless, thrashed by Equatorial Guinea earlier in the tournament, and with Sebastien Haller grabbing the winner after overcoming cancer barely 12 months ago, last night really was one of the great ‘that’s what football do to ya’ moments! What we want to know is… does the manager they sacked after the group stages still get a place on the victory bus?Marcus, Luke and Pete discuss the weekend’s two big continental cup finals and – unfortunately for West Ham fans – plenty of Prem action, too.

Still fighting for this title

Newcastle were on the end of a stinking decision last night. Predictably, Pete seems the least outraged by the whole incident - but Marcus and Vish are angry about it, particularly because it robbed Nick Pope of his clean sheet bonus. Maybe not quite as angry as the Newcastle fan that had to turn on his Christmas lights to cheer himself up, mind...Elsewhere, we ask if Man City fans would be happier if they gave every team a head start and Pete’s penned a power ballad for a very sad Gary O’Neil!

The Football Ramble's Guide To... Jamie Vardy

Imagine your loudmouth mate left your hometown, became one of the Premier League’s most fearsome strikers and secured a Premier League title, an FA Cup triumph and a Ballon d’Or nomination. Well, no need - Jamie Vardy did just that.Marcus, Andy, Luke and Jim get the party started with a look back over a phenomenal journey of grit, determination and shithousery. From gradually making a name for himself in non-league football to a foiled move to a club in Ibiza - Pacha, probably - his earlier years were a relentless, brutal lesson in goalscoring. And, after a slow start to the Premier League after a record-breaking move to Leicester, him and his motley crew of pirates went on to become modern day icons of English football.Let us know what you thought of today’s Guide.
