Ger is only too happy to talk about Borussia Dortmund who dominated Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semi final and it’s no surprise that they come in for plenty of praise. In the other game, Bayern Munich blew Barcelona away at the Allianz Arena meaning we’re set for an all German affair in the Wembley final.

In the Premier League, Ger and Willie are understandably delighted with Spurs’ six minute blitz of Manchester City, a result which ultimately ended hopes of the Premier League title going anywhere other than Old Trafford. Speaking of which, there’s talk on Manchester United and their ability to grind out results this season as well as City’s failings.

Liverpool fan Paul Little gives his thoughts on the Luis Suarez’s biting incident in the weekend game with Chelsea at Anfield. Is the ten game ban handed down by the FA too harsh? Will the Uruguayan still be at Anfield next season?

To round off, Neil reports on the A-League Grand Final and puts forward the question regarding which is better – a first past the post league system or a finals series.
