Paolo Di Canio: On his knees at St James'

Sky Sports News Radio's Mikey Burrows is in the chair this week and is joined by TEAMtalk.com Editor Simon Wilkes and his TEAMtalk colleague and Matty Briggs.

The trio kick-off with Stoke's precarious predicament and are joined on the phone by colleague Mark Holmes who gives his expert opinion on why things are going wrong at The Britannia. Simon thinks the Potters have to get rid of Tony Pulis if they are to survive, while Matty says all is not lost and points towards the Di Canio revolution at Sunderland.

The Tyne-Wear derby is analysed and the impact and hunger that Di Canio has had on the Black Cats comes under the microscope. Simon says two of his most memorable Premier League moments have come at St James' Park in recent weeks with the celebrations of Alan Pardew and Di Canio living long in the memory. And Matty says normally sliding on your knees is reserved for idiots at weddings!

Mikey believes the FA Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Manchester City was the final everyone wanted to see, but Matty and Simon disagree. And Sergio Aguero's return to form is the reason why City have started to click again, according to Simon

While in the Premier League Matty says that champions-elect Manchester United are a team that are 'great' at rolling over inferior opposition rather than a 'great' team.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
