Podcast: Capital One Cup final, Nathan Dyer's penalty spat & Prem weekend discussed

Features Posted 25th February 2013 view comments

The Capital One Cup final, Nathan Dyer's penalty spat, Man City's massive win and the Prem weekend are discussed on the new Football Podcast.

Sky Sports News Radio presenter Mikey Burrows is the host for this week's bumper edition, and is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk Editor Simon Wilkes and his fellow TEAMtalk journalist Jon Holmes.

Swansea: Eased to victory over Bradford at Wembley

Swansea: Eased to victory over Bradford at Wembley

The trio start proceedings by discussing Sunday's Capital One Cup final, where Michael Laudrup's graceful Swansea team eased to a 5-0 victory over a poor Bradford outfit that simply failed to turn up on the day.

Burrows bemoans the Bantams' failure to make a decent game of the League Cup showpiece, while Holmes outlines the gulf in quality between the Premier League and League Two, saying it was always going to be a tough task for Phil Parkinson's brave battlers.

Wilkes and Burrows have a heated debate over Nathan Dyer's reaction to being denied the chance of scoring a Wembley hat-trick by Jonathan De Guzman, then the trio discuss whether Laudrup will stay or go this summer.

Super Sunday comes under the microscope, with Wilkes waxing lyrical about Papiss Cisse's wonder goal for Newcastle, and all three agreeing that Manchester City deserved all the points against Chelsea.

Saturday's talking points - including QPR's defeat to Manchester United and the poor home attendance for Reading's game with Wigan - spark plenty of debate before Burrows make some bold claims about Arsenal's Champions League chances against Bayern Munich.

The rest of the weekend's action is discussed - 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.
