Paolo Di Canio: Tipped to keep Black Cats up

Paolo Di Canio: Tipped to keep Black Cats up

TEAMtalk Editor Simon Wilkes is this week's host and is joined in the studio by his fellow TEAMtalk journalist Matty Briggs and Football365 Editor Sarah Winterburn.

The trio get straight into Sunderland's dismissal of Martin O'Neill and decision to replace him with the untried but explosive Paolo Di Canio, giving their thoughts on what sort of impact the fiery Italian will have on Wearside.

They then discuss Neil Warnock's decision to walk away from Leeds United, debating who the contenders are to succeed him on a long-term basis.

The FA Cup then comes under the spotlight, with Sir Alex Ferguson's team selections for the two Easter games coming under scrutiny.

The Manchester derby is debated and then thoughts turn to the thrilling battle for Premier League survival, with all three in agreement that Reading and QPR are all-but doomed after defeats to Arsenal and Fulham respectively.

The race for the top four is also discussed, with Winterburn backing Arsenal to do the business in the final stages of the season.

Gareth Bale, Juan Mata, Christian Benteke and Andre Villas-Boas come in for special praise from the trio, so have a listen now then have Your Say.
