Roberto Mancini’s Manchester City exit takes up the first segment of this week’s show as the lads discuss the Italian’s pros and cons as well as the direction the club will now take.

Wigan Athletic may have won the FA Cup but relegation followed swiftly afterwards in what was a very mixed few days. How was it that the team was able to raise their game at Wembley yet perform so miserably in the league?

Chelsea helped themselves to the Europa League trophy this week, giving Rafa Benitez the opportunity to give the boo boys the proverbial two fingers. Where next for the Spaniard?

There’s some discussion on the recently announced Ireland squad ahead of the upcoming friendlies, with some focus on James McCarthy’s future, before the pod rounds off with League of Ireland discussion as Alan Mathews leaves Shelbourne.
