    Meanwhile, Robbie presents his awards of the season, while Emma finds herself increasingly nervous as her beloved Leeds are just 90 minutes away from returning to the top flight.

    In the end, the Silkmen were unable to overcome Marine and now face another season battling to get promoted. Recorded the morning after the defeat, a distraught Robbie has no time to sulk as his work continues. But what impact does it all have on the club to have come so close and miss out?

    'I walked out, got in my car and put the music on full volume'

    The Silkmen have got to the playoff final, but Robbie's nerves got the better of him and he found himself unable to watch the closing stages of the game against Worksop. With everything coming down to 90 minutes on bank holiday Monday, will he be able to watch it unfold without any ability to influence events on the pitch? Then in the second part along with Fraser Fletcher, they discuss the suggestion that the entire Manchester United squad could be up for sale, and look at what could be the reasons for the rebirth of Jadon Sancho at Dortmund.
    We'll be back after the Play-Off Final with either an ecstatic or a very disappointed Robbie Savage.

    'This is the time everyone earns their money'

    The Silkmen have secured second place and now wait to find out who they will face in the promotion play-offs, but will all the nerves be too much for Robbie?
    And with a couple more league fixtures to go first, do they rest key players? Or maintain momentum, keeping them match fit, and in doing so risk injury?
    In the second part, Fraser Fletcher (@FrazFletcher) joins them to discuss that Nottingham Forest Tweet, Rangers making it to the first Old Firm Cup final in 25 years, and the sheer excitement of how close Coventry came to making history again.

    'I never realised as a player, what the fans have to do'

    It's been a mixed bag at Macc in the last 7 days with the women's team winning their league, while the men bowed out of the FA Trophy at the semi-final. And with the weather beginning to disrupt more and more matches, the club could find themselves having to play games every few days and then straight into the play-offs. And Robbie reveals he will not be able to handle the stress and watch the game, if they find themselves in a play-off final.
    In the second part, Fraser Fletcher (@FrazFletcher) joins them to discuss the Old Firm derby, and also how the later stages of both the Premier League and Champions League are impacted by that draw for Liverpool at Old Trafford.
