England or Australia are fun. France… meh, they’re good but whatever. Netherlands riding the tide of the Euros win would be fun too.</p> <p>In the end, however, I really want Scotland to win it all. Kim Little is an absolute GOAT in these parts so would desperately love to see her lift some international silverware.</p> <p>Hopefully I don’t wind up talking to myself on here. </p> 2019-06-07T18:37:52+00:00 IMDB Top 250 Film Club - Week 24 http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/9820/ http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/9820/#When:11:36:59Z <p>From a conversation in the Film thread, we’ve decided to try &amp; take on the IMDB Top 250 Film list between us.</p> <p>Every week we will select <strong>FIVE (5)</strong> films from the <a href="https://www.imdb.com/search/title?groups=top_250&amp;sort=user_rating">IMDB Top 250 list</a> at random. <span style="color:blue;">YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WATCH ALL 5 FILMS!</span> You can watch as many or as little as you like, we’ve chosen 5 films to give people multiple options of what to watch as everyone won’t have the same access to films as others, people don’t have the time, you may have already seen some of the films, etc. A choice of 5 films should also mean there should be some more chat going on in the thread. </p> <p>The films are chosen at random as the IMDB list is continuously changing, some of the films may be completely inaccessible &amp; certain films may become topical at points to name a few reasons. Will use Google’s random number generator to create the first list (albeit ignoring films which aren’t readily available). Will use a mix of this &amp; picking some too.</p> <p>Watch the film(s), then just post in this thread about it, whether you liked it or hated it, etc. Probably an idea to be mindful of spoilers.</p> <p>Week 24 :</p> <p><strong>It’s A Wonderful Life</strong> (Now TV &amp; Sky Cinema)<br /> <strong>Gladiator</strong> (Netflix)<br /> <strong>Apocalypse Now</strong> you can also watch Redux<br /> <strong>Snatch</strong> (Netflix, Now TV &amp; Sky Cinema)<br /> <strong>Mr. Smith Goes to Washington</strong></p> <p>Also going to start having to choose films which aren’t readily available on streaming services as the choices dwindle down.</p> 2019-01-02T11:36:59+00:00 Arsenal Fans http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/3998/ http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/3998/#When:17:36:28Z <p>So…Nasri, Clichy both look to be possibly on their way to EPL rivals.</p> <p>Bendtner, Denilson want to leave (and surely have every fans blessing).</p> <p>Phil Jones won’t be arriving.</p> <p>Cesc, well who knows?</p> <p>What do you think is going to happen at the Emirates this summer? What needs to happen?</p> <p>I would like to see (in an ideal world) Jerome Boateng join from Man. City (though I’m certain we can’t afford his wages)<br /> Cesc, and Nasri stay, Clichy can go, if Baines comes in. Samba would be a great addition.<br /> A top class DCM would be great. If Cesc or Nasri were to leave, Arturo Vidal at Leverkusen would be a more then adequate (and probably good value, looking at the German market) young replacement.<br /> GK is in SZC’s safe hands for the next 15 years.</p> <p> </p> 2011-06-10T17:36:28+00:00 The Chelsea thread http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/5660/ http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/5660/#When:19:24:22Z <p>Since there seem to be a few of these around the forum…</p> <p><a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2007/aug/15/newsstory.chelsea">http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2007/aug/15/newsstory.chelsea</a></p> <p>How close CFC were to never having the Bosingwa problem <img src="http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/images/smileys/frown.gif" width="17" height="17" alt="frown" style="border:0;" /> </p> 2012-01-24T19:24:22+00:00 Cricket is here!

Thought it could have the same treatment as the ‘OFFICIAL Music Thread’ &amp; have a thread of it’s own.</p> <p>Any aspiring film buffs out there? Any movie nerds shuffling about?</p> <p>New films. Trips to the cinema. Any films coming up on t’box we should check it out. Favourites. Stinkers. Yadda yadda yadda.</p> <p>Let’s kick it off with the basics, favourite film everybody.</p> <p>Has to be City of God for me. Incredible film.</p> <p> </p> 2011-01-13T13:05:13+00:00 The TV Thread http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/4999/ http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/4999/#When:23:38:05Z <p>I couldn’t see the old TV Thread, assuming that it belonged to someone who got kicked or something. So here’s a new one.</p> <p>I wanted to ask if any one had watched Romanzo Criminale, and, if so, is it worth watching? Looks pretty stylish and I’ve got it on Sky Player. </p> 2011-10-15T23:38:05+00:00 The OFFICIAL Transfer Rumour Thread http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/2051/ http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/2051/#When:17:55:54Z <p>As requested by BigDan83, get all your transfer tittle-tattle here <img src="http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/images/smileys/toppa.gif" width="25" height="24" alt="top hat" style="border:0;" /> </p> 2011-01-13T17:55:54+00:00 The OFFICIAL Look At My #CONTENT Thread http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/4113/ http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/4113/#When:12:48:17Z <p>After some off-season housework, it appears that many Rambleinho’s like to write their own stuff…</p> <p>Rather than starting a new thread each time or rather than posting your blog link into an already open discussion, simply pop your article link (with a brief description) in here so that they can all be kept nice and safe in one place.</p> <p><img src="http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/images/smileys/smile.gif" width="17" height="17" alt="smile" style="border:0;" /></p> <p>As you were…</p> <p>2016 update.</p> <p>All #content included be it blogs, podcasts, Tumblrs, jumpers, goalposts &amp; jam. </p> 2011-06-22T12:48:17+00:00 The International Football Thread http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/6244/ http://www.thefootballramble.co.uk/index.php/forum/viewthread/6244/#When:21:38:14Z <p>Apologies if there is already a general thread for international football - I searched but couldn’t find one.</p> <p>I am watching Mexico absolutely running rings around Brazil. Mexico are winning 2-0 with an hour gone, and they are lining up chance after chance after chance.</p> <p>This must be painful viewing for a lot of Brazil fans. Despite playing on one of the worst surfaces I have ever seen (an artificial American football pitch covered in weird ridges, bumps and holes in the turf), Mexico are pinging the ball about and threading passes through the tiniest holes in the Brazilian defence, whereas Brazil are just trying (and failing) to brute force their way through the Mexican back line. </p> <p>Now that Mexico have a decent striker in Javier Hernandez (and, to a lesser extent, Aldo De Nigris), they could really be a team to watch. </p> <p>Mano Menezes, on the other hand, has his work cut out for him… </p> 2012-06-03T21:38:14+00:00
