Sky Sports News Radio presenter Mikey Burrows hosts this week's Football Podcast and is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk journalist Matt Briggs and TEAMtalk guest Ben Midgley.

The trio kick-off proceedings with a review of the FA Cup action and Blackburn's shock 1-0 win over Arsenal at The Emirates. Briggs claims that Arsene Wenger hasn't learnt his lesson from losing to Bradford earlier in the season, while Midgley has some sympathy for Wenger with Bayern Munich up next.

Oldham's gallant 2-2 draw with Everton also comes under the microscope and Midgley thinks David Moyes is going 'stale' at Goodison Park. All the other ties, including routine wins for Chelsea and Manchester City, are discussed.

Bantams fan Briggs, who will be publishing a cup final scouting report later this week, previews Bradford's big day out at Wembley in the Capital One Cup final and reveals one or two chinks in Swansea's armoury. Midgley thinks it will be a cakewalk for the Premier League boys, but Burrows thinks Bradford might produce a shock - like his beloved Birmingham did two years ago.

Finally our men look at the latest Champions League action and Manchester United fan Midgley, who thinks his men will win the league by 20 points, refuses to make a prediction ahead of the second leg against Real Madrid.

There are plenty more talking points from the weekend's action - plus we give a shout to a listener who tweeted our #ilovethepodcast slogan.

The Podcast will be available on iTunes but you can listen to it here now.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
