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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

Is Van Persie Slipping Sadly Into The Night?

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
