It’s a busy podcast as we round of the season, and it all kicks off with a preview of this weekend’s Champions League Final between the two Madrid sides. Can Atletico do the double or will injuries to key players hamper their chances?

There’s discussion on Arsenal’s FA Cup win as they final ended their long run without a trophy, while Manchester United have ushered in a new era with the appointment of Louis van Gaal. Staying in England, and the Yaya Toure fiasco couldn’t be avoided and the lads ponder what exactly he’s up to.

Next on the agenda is the injury to Luis Suarez, which is a big boost to England’s chances of getting out their World Cup group that includes Uruguay, and there’s some head scratching at the omission of Landon Donovan from the final USA squad.

To round off, the focus turns to Irish football with a look at the squad chosen by Martin O’Neill for the tour of the United States, and there’s also chat around glamour friendlies and the value they add to the domestic game, if any.
