Sky Sports News radio presenter Ben Ransom is this week's host and he is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk.com's Sam Nightingale and Football 365's Matthew Stanger as they mull over an action-packed FA Cup weekend, consider the quarter-final draw and look forward to this week's Champions League matches.

Mind games

The trio discuss Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho's spat after Wenger said that the league was Chelsea's to lose, adding that Mourinho's claim that the Blues are outsiders represents a fear of failure. Mourinho hit back and labelled Wenger a "specialist in failure", prompting the Gunners boss to describe Mourinho's comments as "embarrassing" for Chelsea.

Magic of the cup

The panel consider the quarter-final draw after Arsenal beat Liverpool 2-1 to line up a clash against Everton, while holders Wigan face Manchester City in a repeat of last season's final. Brighton or Hull face Sunderland, while Sheffield United face a possible Steel City derby against Sheffield Wednesday - if the Owls beat Charlton.

Chaos at the Cottage

Fulham's third managerial appointment of the season is debated after the Cottagers brought in German coach Felix Magath. The former Bayern Munich, Wolfsburg and Schalke boss has a reputation as a strict disciplinarian, but will it be enough to save Fulham from the drop?

Can Man City and Arsenal progress in the CL?

The trio consider Manchester City and Arsenal's chances in the Champions League. City face Barcelona and Arsenal take on Bayern Munich this week in their last 16, first leg matches.

City have Samir Nasri back amongst their ranks, but will be without star striker Sergio Aguero. Lionel Messi is in great form for Barca, who also have Neymar back after a recent ankle injury. Meanwhile Arsenal face Bayern Munich in a repeat of last season's last 16 clash. Can Wenger's Arsenal side beat Pep Guardiola's European Champions?

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
