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.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
