Joe Linton: Newcastle spend big, odd pre-season friendlies roll on, and Ederson shows what he can do in midfield

It is absolutely roasting at Ramble HQ but as ever we’re braving it for you, our beloved listeners. We’re here to chat about Mike Ashley putting his hand in his pocket for the people of Newcastle once again, Chelsea and their slightly odd season preparations and naughty naughty Laurent Koscielny.

We’ve also got time to talk about Ederson strutting his stuff in midfield, pre-season red cards and Tony Adams’ confusing first day in his new job.
