The pod kicks of with a review of the midweek Champions League quarter final first legs. The lads discuss David Beckham’s influence, or lack thereof, for Paris St Germain, Bayern’s professional performance against Juventus, and how to pronounce a Dortmund midfielder’s name. Oh, and there’s reference to Joey Barton’s latest Twitter outburst.

The FA Cup and Premier League tie in nicely together given Chelsea’s hectic run of games following their win over Manchester United, who themselves will be looking to edge a step closer to the title with a win over City in the Derby on Monday night.

Paolo Di Canio’s appointment as Sunderland boss has really gotten under Ger’s skin, while Willie displays no bias whatsoever when picking Spurs’ clash with Everton as the biggest game of the weekend.

To round off there’s some chat on the League of Ireland as Sligo Rovers continue their stunning start. Willie offers a suggestion for Shamrock Rovers’ poor showing so far, and Ger is disappointed that Cork City’s diet of black pudding isn’t paying dividends.
