This week’s pod kicks off with a look at Manchester City who have once again made a mess of their Champions League campaign by losing at home to CSKA Moscow. Are the players and their poor attitude to blame, or does the buck stop with the manager and will Manuel Pellegrini see out the season?

There’s talk around the fortunes of the other English sides, none of whom got a win this week. Were Liverpool, as Brendan Rodgers suggested, worthy of a point in Madrid, and just how bad was Arsenal’s collapse at home to Anderlecht?

On the domestic front, the FAI Cup Final was won by St. Patrick’s Athletic but that has been overshadowed by comments from Roddy Collins in the aftermath of the game, bemoaning the standard in the League of Ireland.

To round off, the lads follow up on last week’s Asian Champions League discussion after what was a fiery second leg between the Western Sydney Wanderers and Al Hilal in the final.
