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.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
