Some international football failed to excite, Lionel Messi stays put, and Andy Carroll’s community relations

The UEFA Nations League didn’t serve up anything particularly spicy for today’s episode of the Football Ramble, but no matter – Gibraltar and the Faroe Islands both won again!

Marcus, Jim and Pete give a slither of credit to Wales and England after their respective wins, before praising Ansu Fati’s amazing performance against Ukraine. We also hear of Andy Carroll’s latest bout of community relations, try to convince Pete that Newcastle’s new signings are, in fact, worthwhile and marvel at the bizarre situation at West Ham.
