The big news of the week centred around Old Trafford and the lads pay tribute to the outgoing Manchester United manager before discussing the now confirmed appointment of David Moyes as his successor.

The race for the Champions League spots continues with Spurs looking likely to miss out following their midweek draw at Chelsea, while at the bottom, Wigan may have dug themselves into too deep a hole as they sit three points from safety with just two games remaining.

Roberto Martinez’s side have the FA Cup final to consider as well this weekend and while no one can really see past a Manchester City fan, Neil remains skeptical in true blue fashion.

To finish off there’s discussion on the final day of the Championship and what it means for the futures of the Irish players at Hull City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
