Sky Sports News Radio presenter Mikey Burrows is the host for this week's bumper edition, and is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk Editor Simon Wilkes and his fellow TEAMtalk journalist Jon Holmes.

The trio start proceedings by discussing Sunday's Capital One Cup final, where Michael Laudrup's graceful Swansea team eased to a 5-0 victory over a poor Bradford outfit that simply failed to turn up on the day.

Burrows bemoans the Bantams' failure to make a decent game of the League Cup showpiece, while Holmes outlines the gulf in quality between the Premier League and League Two, saying it was always going to be a tough task for Phil Parkinson's brave battlers.

Wilkes and Burrows have a heated debate over Nathan Dyer's reaction to being denied the chance of scoring a Wembley hat-trick by Jonathan De Guzman, then the trio discuss whether Laudrup will stay or go this summer.

Super Sunday comes under the microscope, with Wilkes waxing lyrical about Papiss Cisse's wondergoal for Newcastle, and all three agreeing that Manchester City deserved all the points against Chelsea.

Saturday's talking points - including QPR's defeat to Manchester United and the poor home attendance for Reading's game with Wigan - spark plenty of debate before Burrows make some bold claims about Arsenal's Champions League chances against Bayern Munich.

The rest of the weekend's action is discussed - plus we give a shout to a listener who tweeted our #ilovethepodcast slogan.

The Podcast will be available on iTunes but you can listen to it here now.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
