There’s only one place to start this week and that’s with Zlatan Ibrahimovic who has had a phenomenal few days with great goals both domestically and in the Champions League. While Ger and Willie keep their feet on the ground, Neil happily declares his man love for the Swede.

The Champions League progress of the English sides is also on the agenda after mixed results for all four, while there’s mention of some of the other talking points from the third round of games.

It’s another big week in the Premier League with Ian Holloway having departed Crystal Palace and Gus Poyet getting off to a poor start at Sunderland. The stand out fixture is undoubtedly Manchester City’s trip to Chelsea and the general consensus is that the Stamford Bridge side will come out on top. Home wins should also be on the agenda for Liverpool and Manchester United.

To round off, the lads debate what has been a ridiculous week for great goals and there’s always time to make mention of *that* Stephanie Roche wonder strike.
