|Oh, get a room you two!|
And there goes another one, folks. The week is done and dusted and it's time to gather around the TV and gorge on some goodness. The MEGACLASH in England is Chelsea vs. Arsenal.

Podcast! With international week just around the corner, we've rolled out the big guns for this edition of Football Weekly Extra, with Rafa Honigstein, Philippe Auclair and Iain Macintosh joining Jimbo and Barry in the pod for 57 minutes of aural gymnastics. We begin by looking back on a mixed week for England's finest in the Champions League. Arsenal showed some swagger in seeing off a poor Galatasaray and Chelsea – who host the Gunners on Sunday – did the business in Lisbon, but Manchester City and Liverpool disappointed again. Rodgers out, apparently! Next, we turn our attention to more domestic matters by looking forward to the weekend in the Premier League, including Alan Pardew's next round at the last chance saloon as Newcastle travel to Swansea, and Manchester United's bank-busting attack trying their luck against the worst defence in Europe – which is Everton, for those of you who've been paying attention.
