The Fantasy Ramble – The James Rodriguez Bus
It’s Wildcard Week at Ramble HQ, with three out of our six usual hosts pressing the big reset button for the first time this season.
Jack Donnelly is joined by Graeme Sinclair, Struan Garvie and Taylor Murray to discuss Pep Guardiola’s team rotation ahead of City’s game against Leicester, the James Rodriguez hype bus ahead of Everton’s match away at Crystal Palace and how Thiago can transform Liverpool’s midfield ahead of his alleged first start against Arsenal on Monday night.
They also discuss the Yorkshire derby between Leeds and Sheffield United, the possibility of relegation for Fulham and Aston Villa and how Newcastle will fare without Jamal Lewis and Allan Saint-Maximin.
They round out the show with their Fantasy Team of the Week, predicting Burnley and Wolves defences to thrive this weekend, highlighting Daniel Podence as a good value-for-money midfield option and adding to the Dominic Calvert-Lewin hype.
