Ireland salvaged a point in their home qualifier against Poland on Sunday but the result leaves them in fourth place at the half way point in Group D.

The lads discuss some of their takeaways from the game, include the Wes Hoolahan love in and the return to the starting line up of Shay Given and Robbie Keane.

There’s a look ahead to what will be a massive game against Scotland in June, before attention turns to some of the qualifying news with some most deserved praise for Northern Ireland and Wales in particular.

The Premier League returns this weekend as Arsenal take on Liverpool in the big game, and Paul talks about the loss to injury (again) of Daniel Sturridge, as well as the impact a defeat would have on Brendan Rodgers’ side.

There’s a few big games at the bottom that will have an impact on the battle to avoid the drop, while Neil isn’t too confident about Manchester City claiming a result away to Crystal Palace on Monday night.
