    Jimbo welcomes Michael Cox, Dominic Fifield and Duncan Alexander into the pod to preview some big cup finals.

    Chelsea face Leicester in the FA Cup final, with both sides experiencing contrasting fortunes in midweek in the Premier League. Joe Brewin tells us how winning this competition would mean more to Foxes fans than a top 4 finish. 

    Speaking of the Blues, Katie Whyatt helps us preview the Champions League final with the finest WSL team ever assembled, against heavy favourites Barcelona. Perhaps an exciting new dawn for the sport. 

    We salute Man City - champions of England, a team that made esteemed opposition look like idiots.

    We chat Palace with Dom, who says fans should be prepared to bid farewell to Roy Hodgson and we get an overdue bigging up of Benteke.

    Michael finds out who he will face in the Inter Totally Cup final as Julien Laurens takes on Benji Lanyado in the semi-final.

    Plus Greenwood for England, Ings for City and remembering that Aguero goal 9 years on.

    The most beautiful club in the world

    Jimbo and the Euro crew of James Horncastle, Rafa Honigstein, Julien Laurens and Alvaro Romeo take apart another dramatic weekend across the continent.

    Lille are closing in on a first title in 10 years as we pay tribute to their recruitment. Meanwhile PSG are purchasing Prince vinyl.

    Dortmund are back in the top 4 thanks to their saviour Sancho. Is he still underrated outside of Germany?

    Milan destroy a Juventus team who are jaded and playing without purpose. Will they miss out on the top 4 and lose Ronaldo? Or could they even be thrown out of Serie A?

    And the top 4 in Spain all go head to head. But will it be head to head that decides the title?

    Jimbo, Adam Hurrey, Carl Anka and Daniel Storey are back as the race for Champions League football takes more twists and turns.

    Leicester suffer a shock defeat at home to Newcastle. Are they set to slip out of the top 4 again? And how much blame would come Brendan Rodgers’ way?

    His old club Liverpool are back in the mix. Should the Reds be chasing the top 4? Or do they risk missing out and ending up in the Conference League by mistake?
