Host Mikey Burrows of Sky Sports News Radio is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk.com's Matthew Briggs, Football365.com's Matthew Stanger and Sunderland writer Michael Graham of Roker Report.

The quartet kick-off with the fall-out from the North London derby and Burrows thinks Tottenham boss Andre Villa-Boas is the coolest cat around. Briggs and Stanger find it hard to disagree, but with Arsenal's run-in, Briggs thinks it's not all over for Arsenal just yet.

Aaron Ramsey comes under the microscope and Briggs brands him a Championship player, while Stanger vents his spleen over the wasteful Olivier Giroud.

Burrows asks why Rafa Benitez doesn't get his revenge on the Chelsea fans that boo him, by booing them back, while Stanger praises Blues ace Juan Mata and reflects on 'another one that got away' from Arsenal.

QPR won at Southampton at the weekend, but our panel still think Rangers will be relegated.

Stoke and Sunderland's failure to move forward is also put under the microscope. Burrows says Martin O'Neill and his tactics are from the past, but guest Graham defends the Irishman and his beloved Black Cats and says he is prepared to give the manager more time.

Stanger also reflects on Stoke's poor goalscoring record and thinks the Potters are at a standstill.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
