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.

Barcelona transfer ban upheld

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
