United players: Can they turn things around?

United players: Can they turn things around?

Sky Sports News Radio presenter Ben Ransom hosts this week's Football Podcast and is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk.com's Pete Hall and Football365.com's Daniel Storey as they look back on the big talking points from the week's games in the Premier League.

Moyes misery mounting

The studio start by dissecting back-to-back home defeats for Manchester United. United fan Pete laments the decision to play an "unfit" Robin van Persie, and doesn't see any new arrivals coming in January to solve their current crisis. Daniel questions the belief David Moyes has instilled within his players, but disagrees with Pete, highlighting a desperate manager has to strengthen. Host Ben also raises the issue as to whether United "could do a Liverpool" and see their era of success come to an end.

Inconsistent Chelsea

The panel are baffled by Chelsea's defeat at Stoke, with Daniel questioning what has happened to the "siege mentality" at Stamford Bridge. Pete singles out Petr Cech for criticism, while Ben is baffled by Jose Mourinho's reaction to the weekend defeat.

Arsenal tests to come

Despite a home draw with Everton at the weekend, Pete admits the Gunners are realistic title contenders, but cannot resist adding another "if" to the debate, while Daniel highlights upcoming tough matches that will give us a more clear indication of Arsenal's ambitions.

Spurs back on form?

Daniel and Pete highlight despite two wins in a week, Tottenham need to solve their profligacy in the final third, with Ben highlighting Spurs' lack of ability up front as the reason for such a poor conversion rate.

England's exciting draw

Ben struggles to hide his patriotism after Friday's World Cup draw, and believes a tough group could add more excitement this summer's main event. Pete insists the line-up isn't all that difficult with Uruguay a declining threat, while Daniel is less excitable than Ben, predicting a familiar quarter-final exit for the Three Lions.

t's just a ride. Bill Hicks is sorely missed, what a prophet and still relevant twenty years after his death. I'm glad though he didn't get to see George Bush Jnr as President.
