On the podcast this week I am joined by Charlie Anderson, Chris Mayer and Ethan Dean-Richards. We give our take on how far Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur can go next year. Who will be pushing forward who will stagnate backwards. What do Liverpool do with Steven Gerrard?

Charlie then talks us through the Danish Superliga with four games to go. What has made Champions Copenhagen so good. Who are the players linked with moving away in the summer. The race for the Europa League and 2nd Champions League spot. Also the relegation battle that everyone from 5th place down can still get relegated.

To finish off the show we look back at our favourite moments in the FACup in homage to this weekend’s final between Man City and Stoke.

**DISCLAMIER** This was written before and during the match, completed and filed minutes after the final whistle. Has not been read over and fixed. Wanted to see how well I could do a proper match report. The report was sent to various Yorkshire newspapers which the green light to use if they wanted. Let me know what you think.

A disappointing end to a disappointing season for the home side, the fans were not happy to see five goals conceded at home in what was a lack lustre performance. Crewe on the other hand will hope to build on a result like this next season. If they can hold on top scorer Clayton Donaldson and the very impressive Byron Moore then they could make at least a playoff run next season.

It is the pleasure of gibfootballshow to welcome David Bevan, otherwise known as The 72 football. David asks the question. Do we really want Goal-Line technology?

I love football. I love it for its beauty, but also for its imperfections. Apparently, though, I don’t. This weekend, there was another contentious decision in the Premier League and we have had to suffer overexposed loudmouths in the media putting words in the mouths of millions of football supporters. More waffle and bluster about how “everyone” wants goal-line technology except a few “neanderthals” at FIFA. Tentatively, I raise my hand. And me…

Huddersfield Town fan Charlie Johnson looks forward to the League One promotion run in…

Lee Clark mentioned the play offs in his post match interview following the hard fought victory over league strugglers Dagenham and Redbridge, this is significant because for the first time it would appear that Huddersfield are planning for the worst as the season reaches its ever nearing conclusion.

Steve Mitchell asks the question – Whatever happened to Benito Carbone?

15 years ago, a little Italian striker called Benito Carbone landed in South Yorkshire after Sheffield Wednesday took a three million pound gamble on a player who had a reputation for being a journeyman footballer.

Hello..this week on the podcast I was joined by Chris Mayer from 6 pointer, Dave Bevan from the 72.com and Scott Johnston from the footyblog.net. We discuss this week’s four Champions League games.

The port city of Marseille will be buzzing at the arrival of Manchester United. Going well in the league and some favourable results in the Group Stage: Juliet JacquesGuardian writer and Ligue 1 fan gives you a glimpse of L’OM’s chances.

Olympique de Marseille enter their Champions League last 16 tie against Manchester United returning to form, but afflicted by injuries. Didier Deschamps’ side recovered excellently from a slow start in this competition, a brilliant 3-0 win at Spartak Moscow securing the French champions’ qualification from their group, but then won just one of their next eight Ligue 1 games as their title defence faltered.

The long shot against the wannabe champions. There is no doubt who the bookies favourite is in this match but let Charlie Anderson, In Bed With Maradona’s Scandanavian expert make you think twice about the Danish side’s chances.

The most predictable thing about FC Copenhagen’s tactics in the Champions League has been their unpredictability. Coach Ståle Solbakken has not so much imposed a style or philosophy on his players as instilled tactical flexibility into them. The Norwegian has meticulously tweaked and shuffled his strategies to suit the circumstances, never afraid to make bold decisions and almost always getting them right.

A meeting between two of the best footballing sides in the world, a mouthwatering match-up so let our guest writers talk you through it. In the red corner is award winning writer Sian Ranscombe her blog “From a girl who loves the Gunners” is superb. And she hopes her team can follow in her trophy winning ways.

Up until a few weeks ago, I think both neutrals and fans were largely assuming this tie would be a one-way battle won easily by Barcelona. Arsenal have been inconsistent this season and if they can drop points to West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United, and let leads slip as easily as they have done, what chance do they stand against the mighty Barcelona?
