It’s a very busy pod this week and the first topic to focus on is Manchester United’s continued troubles after the midweek Champions League defeat to Olympiacos. Have patience run out with David Moyes and how low can they go?

There were three other ties played as well so the lads discuss Chelsea’s draw with Galatasary and comfortable wins for both Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

Manchester City are hoping to secure their first trophy of the season when they take on Sunderland in Sunday’s Capital One Cup Final, and Paul has some interesting thoughts on Manuel Pellegrini’s future if he fails to deliver silverware.

Liverpool’s continued good form in the Premier League also gets a hat tip, as does Spurs’ progress in the Europa League. Will that hold Tim Sherwood’s side back though as they try to close the gap to fourth spot in the bread and butter?

To round off, there’s a look at the draw for the Euro 2016 qualifiers with Ireland’s splitting opinion in terms of positivity and negativity.
