TEAMtalk.com Editor Simon Wilkes is this week's host and is joined by TEAMtalk colleague Rob McCarthy and Blackburn fan James Dixon, with Sunderland supporter Michael Graham also making a guest appearance.

The trio start proceedings with Villa's dismantling of Paolo Di Canio's Sunderland troops at Villa Park, where the Black Cats were hit for six.

That leads to a debate on the battle for Premier League survival, with all three agreeing that things are looking grim for Wigan, who may struggle to keep Roberto Martinez if they do drop out of England's top tier.

The race for a top-four spot is also discussed before thoughts turn to Robin van Persie's return to The Emirates, where he coolly converted a penalty to earn champions Manchester United a 1-1 draw in the capital.

The trio also chew the fat over the ups and down in the Football League, waxing lyrical about Doncaster's dramatic win at Brentford and debating how QPR and Reading will get on in the Championship.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
