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.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
