TEAMtalk Editor Simon Wilkes is this week's host, and he is joined in the studio by Manchester United fan Peter Hall and TEAMtalk's betting guru Matty Briggs.

This week's talking points...

Kompany takeover at the top

The trio pick through the aftermatch of Monday night's 'unmissable' Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium, where City put one hand on the Premier League trophy with a 1-0 win over United.

Hall thinks Sir Alex Ferguson got his tactics right - but his team selection wrong, and was staggered that Antonio Valencia was overlooked.

Briggs can't see any way that City slip up in their tricky trip to the North-East to face high-flying Newcastle, while Wilkes argues the case for a draw which would throw United a lifeline.

We hear reaction from Fergie and Roberto Mancini.

By Roy-al appointment at Wembley

Attention then turns to the FA's decision to pick Roy Hodgson, not Harry Redknapp, as Fabio Capello's successor in the England hot-seat.

We hear from the West Brom boss himself and Gary Neville's thoughts on his chances of success at Euro 2012.

Pep talk, FA Cup final chat etc

Our trio then discuss where they think Pep Guardiola might end up next after his break from football at the end of Barcelona's disappointing campaign.

Finally we discuss this weekend's FA Cup final, with two out of three of our pundits feeling Chelsea will leave Kenny Dalglish's Liverpool feeling blue, especially now Fernando Torres is firing on all cylinders.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win

I

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
