It’s been another action packed week at Stamford Bridge following Rafa Benitez’s ‘rant’ after Chelsea’s FA Cup win over Middlesbrough. With results not exactly going in their favour in the league, are the fans right to be on the manager’s back? The panel discusses that as well as the latest Gareth Bale Show for Spurs.

Away from the Premier League, the Nathan Dyer penalty incident divides opinions with Ger in particular outraged at the winger’s carry on. Neil, on the other hand is none too impressed with antics of Jonathan De Guzman, while Willie and Michael also feel that Dyer should have been given the chance to net his hattrick.

Major League Soccer kicks off this weekend and there’s no better man than Michael to help preview the season. The lads discuss the changes at both Chivas USA and the Portland Timbers, Robbie Keane’s new role as LA Galaxy skipper, and ‘Jersey Week’ which has seen clubs releasing their shirts at various stages over the past few days.

We also have a MLS fantasy league running this year so head to the site, create a team and enter using the code 5888-1341.
