There’s plenty to get through in this week’s podcast and the lads start off by delving into Matchday 4 of the Uefa Champions League where Apoel Nicosia continue to surprise. Spanish football expert Joseph talks about Barcelona and Real Madrid’s chances in this year’s competition before Wayne Rooney’s move to midfield comes under scrutiny. After that it’s on to the Premier League where hot topics include the form of Robin van Persie, the John Terry racism scandal and Newcastle United’s unbeaten start to the campaign.

In part two the focus switches to La Liga and surprise package Levante, before Joseph explains some of the choice words to be found in Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s upcoming book. To wrap up the show, Ger gets his moment in the sun while discussing the final day of the League of Ireland First Division season where Cork City pipped Shelbourne to the title. However despite that crushing disappointment, Neil remains optimistic about Shels’ chances over overcoming Sligo Rovers in this weekend’s FAI Cup Final at the Aviva Stadium.
