Stuck away in the chilly recesses of the Sky Sports broom cupboard but buoyed by an evening spent in the company of Beyonce (well, as good as), we're back for another Football Podcast full of razzmatazz and rambunctiousness.

Sky Sports News Radio's Mikey Burrows is your star quarterback for an assault on round 25 of the Premier League season, with SkySports.com football news editor Pete O'Rourke and TEAMtalk.com writer Jon Holmes his wide receivers for another edition of what seasoned listeners call 'the greatest show on earth'.

In the first quarter, Manchester City's thrilling 2-2 draw with Liverpool gets a good going-over, with Pete pointing the finger at suspect Reds goalkeeper Pepe Reina - while Jon explains why he can't see any way back for City in the title race.

Mikey touches down on why Tottenham are currently his favourite top-flight team, while our trio are united in a shoulder charge on spitting - as seen from West Brom's Goran Popov on Sunday.

The half-time show passes without incident, but there's plenty of drama to come as history looks unfavourably on leaky Aston Villa (much to Mikey's delight) and the French connection lifts Newcastle away from danger. We've got a full analysis on the state of play in the relegation battle.

In the closing stages, Jon and Pete join forces to give Saturday's gritty Emirates encounter at least 60 seconds of airtime, before the biting cold of Studio 2 gets too much for everyone and the final whistle blows.

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.

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.
