World Cup 2014

Check out the latest outright odds on next summer's World Cup in Brazil

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.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
