The podcast kicks off with some surprising sympathy for John Terry who will the Champions League final following his red card in Chelsea’s epic clash with Barcelona on Tuesday. There’s plenty of credit for the Blues who will now take on Bayern Munich in their own backyard after they overcame Real Madrid in a penalty shootout in the other semi final.

The second half of the show is all about the Premier League, past and present. There’s a look ahead to Monday’s Manchester Derby which is being billed by some as the biggest game for many years. The lads also discuss the current abysmal form of Aston Villa who now find themselves sucked into the relegation battle, while Ger and Willie are understandably disappointed with the way Spurs’ season has faded out.

To wrap up there’s plenty of debate around the Premier League’s 20 Seasons Awards which are now open for voting, and some of the selections will no doubt leave listeners scratching their heads more than just a little!
