This week I'm joined by Chris Sutton and comedian

:00:36.:00:39.

and long-suffering Swansea City fan, Elis James.

:00:40.:00:42.

Coming up on the show - with a big weekend ahead at the foot

:00:43.:00:45.

of the table we look at what it takes to escape the dreaded drop;

:00:46.:00:48.

Steve Bower sits down with Burnley boss Sean Dyche

:00:49.:00:51.

and football-mad John Robins tells us why he has no desire to...err..go

:00:52.:00:54.

But first, the games are running out and the tension is rising

:00:55.:00:58.

at both ends of the table - here's what's been happening

:00:59.:01:01.

over the last seven days in the Premier League...

:01:02.:01:09.

It was an outstanding performance. Up comes a Randolph. But is it the

:01:10.:01:21.

way, not very far. Sunderland have hope. We will keep believing why we

:01:22.:01:28.

have a chance. We keep going, we don't give in. It is a free header.

:01:29.:01:36.

The only thing I want to remember is a positive experience. If I had to

:01:37.:01:41.

work 15 years to experience one such moment, I will do it gladly. Drives

:01:42.:01:48.

it in. What an outstanding goal. Rowdy outside... 2-0. Get it in.

:01:49.:02:00.

That is the icing on the cake. Exciting moment. Marcus Rashford

:02:01.:02:13.

with the chance. Taken brilliantly. Young, again. And as her rare red.

:02:14.:02:24.

It is deflected and it is in. Listen to those cheers for Manchester

:02:25.:02:27.

United win which will be cheered as loudly by Tottenham.

:02:28.:02:40.

Keeper doesn't see it at all. Sanchez, right footed, quality kick

:02:41.:02:51.

and Arsenal lead 1-0. Negredo steers the ball past Petr Cech. Sanchez,

:02:52.:03:00.

into the penalty area. The ball is fired in. And it is Ozil. Arsenal

:03:01.:03:12.

are back in front 2-1. There will be a new team in the Premier League

:03:13.:03:16.

next season, Brighton Hove Albion have been promoted. John Terry has

:03:17.:03:22.

announced he will leave the club at the end of the season. He has been

:03:23.:03:29.

at the club for 22 years. He said he will decide on his future later. You

:03:30.:03:38.

get the feeling Spurs smell a little bit of fear, they smell an

:03:39.:03:43.

opportunity and they look imperious. Is it a little wobble from Chelsea

:03:44.:03:47.

would you be worried if you were a Chelsea fan? I wouldn't be too

:03:48.:03:53.

worried. Chelsea have four games at home, two away, Sunderland and

:03:54.:04:00.

Middlesbrough and they are automatic for Chelsea. Spurs are on an

:04:01.:04:12.

incredible run. Were you surprised by Antonio Conte's body language? A

:04:13.:04:19.

couple of months ago, all of the pundits are saying they were going

:04:20.:04:24.

to win it. So to lose two games in a month, must get in the back of your

:04:25.:04:29.

mind, doubt. As a neutral, you want the team at the top in April to

:04:30.:04:34.

throw it away, because it is so entertaining. Liverpool fliptop and

:04:35.:04:44.

they have throw it away. They had a Newcastle like lead as well,

:04:45.:04:47.

Chelsea. It is so much fun if you don't support the top two teams. I

:04:48.:04:55.

am trying to find a link, do you want Spurs to win? I don't care. I

:04:56.:05:03.

used to live with a Spurs fan, they haven't won it since 1961. People

:05:04.:05:08.

used to rent radios in 1961. I love Ben Davies. A Welsh connection?

:05:09.:05:16.

Clutching at straws. Who do you want to win it? I want Swansea to win it

:05:17.:05:22.

in some horrendous mathematical... I don't know how it will happen. It

:05:23.:05:30.

won't. No it won't. I prefer watching Tottenham to Chelsea. Spurs

:05:31.:05:36.

are playing attractive football, they look tougher than they did this

:05:37.:05:42.

time last year? The manager was saying a month ago, last year they

:05:43.:05:46.

lost focus. They don't seem to have lost focus this year. The

:05:47.:05:50.

interesting one is the semifinal at the weekend. If Spurs bump Chelsea,

:05:51.:05:55.

there may be doubts from the Chelsea players. Is there anything to read

:05:56.:06:01.

into cost of's form as well? He is reliant on service. He didn't have

:06:02.:06:07.

his best game against United, he was shackled well. But overall he has

:06:08.:06:12.

been exceptional the Chelsea. There is no way he is 27. He looks about

:06:13.:06:18.

50. I thought it was a typo when I saw his age. It takes it out of you

:06:19.:06:22.

being a sportsman, look at Chris. The top two aren't in action this

:06:23.:06:25.

weekend so attention is firmly on the bottom of the table -

:06:26.:06:28.

and there are some big Huge home games for both

:06:29.:06:31.

Swansea and Hull dominate Saturday's fixtures,

:06:32.:06:34.

whilst West Ham and Bournemouth are still desperate to reach that

:06:35.:06:36.

magical 40 point mark. Likewise, on Sunday Burnley

:06:37.:06:38.

entertain Manchester United and resurgent Crystal Palace face

:06:39.:06:40.

a tough trip to Anfield. But what does it take to avoid

:06:41.:06:42.

the trapdoor and keep your head Recent Premier League history

:06:43.:06:45.

is punctuated by miraculous escapes but how do you psychologically equip

:06:46.:06:49.

yourself to fight relegation. When the threat of relegation enters

:06:50.:07:08.

into the thoughts, this whole idea of needing to escape occupies my

:07:09.:07:12.

energy and what I think about, I'd bring about. You start distrusting

:07:13.:07:19.

each other as players. You look at your coach and doubts whether they

:07:20.:07:24.

are the person you hoped they would be, the blame game starts happening

:07:25.:07:27.

and you get into this negative spiral. Whether you can ride the

:07:28.:07:34.

emotional roller-coaster that is relegation is going to be the key as

:07:35.:07:38.

to whether you come out successful or not successful. For me, it looks

:07:39.:07:49.

like fear and the fear has gripped the players and it hasn't allowed

:07:50.:07:54.

them to express the ability they have got. When players enter into

:07:55.:07:58.

the competitive arena cup performance is in their mindset.

:07:59.:08:05.

That is when they are stifled. Fans on their back, press on their back.

:08:06.:08:12.

What a dreadful moments. If you can imagine my hands are like my

:08:13.:08:17.

thoughts and my feelings. When I am experiencing fear, it is as if this

:08:18.:08:22.

happens. The fear of failure perpetuates itself onto the pitch.

:08:23.:08:27.

They freeze and take less risks on the ball. If body language reveals

:08:28.:08:32.

anything, it reveals horror. It is often said, the health of the team

:08:33.:08:39.

is reflected in the face of the coach. Being mindful of your body

:08:40.:08:45.

language as a manager is important. They may be saying the right words,

:08:46.:08:49.

but if their body language doesn't reflect what they are saying, their

:08:50.:08:54.

players will recognise it. When you see players making a mistake, they

:08:55.:08:59.

look straight to the bench for some kind of confirmation of how to feel.

:09:00.:09:05.

We cannot not communicate. The serious stuff starts here for the

:09:06.:09:12.

new Hull boss. When managers come into football clubs, there is this

:09:13.:09:16.

sense of freshness, everything is new. You are coming in with the

:09:17.:09:22.

level of optimum and you have to convince somebody that you can. You

:09:23.:09:27.

share those thoughts with somebody. A change of manager disrupts that

:09:28.:09:34.

cloud of negativity. Cloud you run your airy has been sacked as the

:09:35.:09:40.

Leicester City manager. You create belief systems and then the fear

:09:41.:09:47.

starts to dissipate. The Stadium of light is lifting. Sam Allardyce has

:09:48.:09:55.

a tool box he brings with him, both mental and scientific, if you like.

:09:56.:10:00.

He has done it before. Job done, mission accomplished. Sam Allardyce

:10:01.:10:05.

has pulled it off. People look to him and say, we are in safe hands.

:10:06.:10:12.

He said, I am the man to get Crystal Palace out of relegation. That

:10:13.:10:15.

belief conveys itself to every single player in the dressing room.

:10:16.:10:21.

That will do it for the boys in blue and four Nigel Pearson. You look

:10:22.:10:26.

back to Leicester City a couple of years ago, Fulham a few years back,

:10:27.:10:32.

it is about a change of mindset. It has all swung Fulham's way. Go back

:10:33.:10:38.

to 2005 when Bryan Robson led West Brom. They were bottom Christmas and

:10:39.:10:45.

everybody said it couldn't be done. Bryan Robson's baggies are staying

:10:46.:10:49.

in the Premiership. In the end, a manager who is able to motivate,

:10:50.:10:57.

inspire and energise, those managers become successful. Relegation is a

:10:58.:11:03.

seemingly innocuous word but it is a powerful or pervasive place to be

:11:04.:11:08.

sometimes. If you think you are doomed, you will be doomed.

:11:09.:11:12.

Chris, you've played in successful sides and you've played

:11:13.:11:14.

in struggling sides, what do you think you need

:11:15.:11:16.

More to look around the dressing room to see what players we had in

:11:17.:11:30.

the dressing room but Middlesbrough and Sunderland are struggling

:11:31.:11:32.

because they don't have the quality of players. But psychologically at

:11:33.:11:38.

this stage in the season you have two stay strong. A lot of it comes

:11:39.:11:43.

from the training ground, organisation and repetition. That is

:11:44.:11:47.

why Sam Allardyce has a big reputation. Because he knows what it

:11:48.:11:51.

is about what you produce on the training ground to take into a match

:11:52.:11:55.

day, so he has tried and tested this formula? Yes, giving the players

:11:56.:12:01.

confidence through organisation. His biggest trick in January was the

:12:02.:12:12.

signing of Sakho. He has galvanised the defence. Maybe there is a self

:12:13.:12:19.

propelling prophecy, Sam Allardyce has done it before, we can relax and

:12:20.:12:25.

play good football. He was linked with Swansea, Sam Allardyce. It was

:12:26.:12:29.

amazing when the fans were talking and they were saying, he will keep

:12:30.:12:35.

us up at all costs, but the football won't be very pretty. He was given.

:12:36.:12:39.

Because he does have this amazing record. When you read player

:12:40.:12:44.

autobiographies, it is amazing how confidence comes into it and how

:12:45.:12:48.

important it is. You would just think players can their own

:12:49.:12:54.

confidence, but they are like sensitive singer songwriters. If

:12:55.:12:58.

they don't score for ten games, they doubt everything. Our players, when

:12:59.:13:04.

we go a goal down, head strop. We need big characters in our team.

:13:05.:13:08.

Ashley Williams was the one who used to lift and galvanise the players

:13:09.:13:12.

when the chips were down. We don't keep clean sheets and we don't score

:13:13.:13:22.

goals. In a nutshell. Clement said he should be sacked and then

:13:23.:13:25.

re-employed to get the bounce back. The first eight games he has won

:13:26.:13:30.

three out of four. I was at his first game at Crystal Palace. I was

:13:31.:13:35.

at Anfield as well. When we beat Liverpool at Anfield I thought,

:13:36.:13:39.

we're not safe, but he is going to do it. He has had an amazing impact.

:13:40.:13:49.

Hull, they haven't got a great squad of players? They made some smart

:13:50.:13:55.

business decisions in January. They lost Livermore and Snodgrass but he

:13:56.:14:00.

does have some decent players in. I saw them at the weekend against

:14:01.:14:04.

Stoke. I think they have a better chance than Swansea. Did you get

:14:05.:14:10.

that? Their away form is horrible, they missed a lot of chances at the

:14:11.:14:15.

weekend. Hull's home form will be enough to keep them up. Third spot,

:14:16.:14:20.

Middlesbrough and Sunderland are gone, who will it be filled by?

:14:21.:14:28.

Swansea. Swansea have their chance, one point. Winnable games. Thanks,

:14:29.:14:39.

never thought that would happen. Burnley are in 14th place, but they

:14:40.:14:43.

have only won once in their last ten games and the only Premier League

:14:44.:14:46.

team without an away victory this season. We have been to the

:14:47.:14:50.

Lancashire countryside to talk to Shaun Batt I should.

:14:51.:15:07.

Do you feel safe now, sitting here? Finding Boyd! A turf war erupts!

:15:08.:15:17.

Know, one thing I definitely know about the Premier League, all levels

:15:18.:15:23.

of football, but this is especially unforgiving. Good runs come round,

:15:24.:15:26.

awkward runs come round equally as quickly, sometimes more so when you

:15:27.:15:30.

are not the superpower of the division. So far we have had a good

:15:31.:15:34.

season, and I would agree with people. We are really keen and

:15:35.:15:37.

working hard with the group to make sure we do what we have too. I know

:15:38.:15:41.

you almost sick of talking about this but if you look at Turf Moor,

:15:42.:15:46.

ten wins is almost unbelievable and achievement but you search for that

:15:47.:15:53.

first win away from home? I'm not sick of talking about it, it is

:15:54.:15:56.

there to be spoken about, an anomaly that is there to be mentioned.

:15:57.:16:02.

We have been closing games, delivering good enough performances

:16:03.:16:06.

to get a win, we haven't got that. Margins have been equally tight at

:16:07.:16:10.

home, sometimes away you need that. Whether it is luck, or good play.

:16:11.:16:14.

The main thing for me, it's points on the board. That has always been

:16:15.:16:17.

the goal this season. See hominy points you get on the board and at

:16:18.:16:22.

the end of the season, you will know. Is the way you get those

:16:23.:16:26.

points important to you? It is a game of opinions and some Burnley

:16:27.:16:32.

fans would say that Boyd and Armfield are Sean Dyche players,

:16:33.:16:40.

what about others? Fans are open to their opinions, they have a bigger

:16:41.:16:45.

say than ever. That's no problem to me. The fact I work is that the team

:16:46.:16:52.

is the strength. Nothing against even, he is a fine player but has to

:16:53.:16:56.

fit into the team on any given day to make it work. And he has had his

:16:57.:17:02.

injuries as well. That is superb from Jeff Hendrick 's! That was like

:17:03.:17:10.

Schmeichel! How difficult is it to manage Premier League players with

:17:11.:17:13.

everything that goes on around Premier League football? I wouldn't

:17:14.:17:17.

have said if you years ago that I would have imagined they are

:17:18.:17:22.

superpower clubs. It's like having 25 mini companies. A lot of these

:17:23.:17:27.

players now are not about just the players, they have agents, Private

:17:28.:17:31.

physios, private sports scientists, that is different here. We are not a

:17:32.:17:34.

giant club. My players don't have two or three

:17:35.:17:41.

agents and specialists, etc. One of the things that is clear in

:17:42.:17:44.

management is that every manager, whatever level, have their own

:17:45.:17:48.

challenges. You have the ridges and the magnificent players, but they

:17:49.:17:53.

take managing -- riches. To get them successful and winning

:17:54.:17:57.

games, ultimately. Everybody has their own challenges, mine or the

:17:58.:18:00.

realities of financing the club and balance that against the team's

:18:01.:18:04.

production, the players being successful for them and the team. In

:18:05.:18:06.

general, the Premier League for anyone involved is all consuming,

:18:07.:18:15.

can you easily switch from the bubble that is the Premier League? I

:18:16.:18:18.

don't think so easily, but you get more used to it. You have those

:18:19.:18:26.

times away from the realities, with your family and things like that.

:18:27.:18:30.

It comes with raising their profile, Burnley are not giants of the

:18:31.:18:33.

division but because of the exposure you get recognised a lot more. I

:18:34.:18:37.

blend well, as you can imagine! Most people say, in my experience, it has

:18:38.:18:43.

been pleasant. Most fans know the hierarchy of the

:18:44.:18:46.

league, not just on a piece of paper, they know where we are in the

:18:47.:18:49.

grand scheme of things. They haven't been of empathy that it

:18:50.:18:53.

is a tough challenge for us all of the time. You look to outperform the

:18:54.:18:59.

market. The keyboard warriors sometimes hide behind acidic terms,

:19:00.:19:02.

but mostly when you meet people they are decent. From the, Darryl Rice

:19:03.:19:07.

say it, the worldwide perspective, there is no doubt that everybody is

:19:08.:19:12.

delighted that Pep Guardiola is here, and Antonio Conte has come for

:19:13.:19:15.

stock as a young English manager, are you ambitious in the Premier

:19:16.:19:18.

League? Do you think one day that you would like a crack at that?

:19:19.:19:25.

Absolutely, as a player you maximise your soft and it's the same as

:19:26.:19:31.

manager. One thing people forget is that a lot of managers in the

:19:32.:19:34.

Premier League have been successful in their own right -- maximise

:19:35.:19:36.

yourself. Not many come from nowhere. But it

:19:37.:19:40.

is the English Premier League, is it important that one day an English

:19:41.:19:45.

manager wins the title in the English Premier League? It would be

:19:46.:19:49.

helpful, it enhances that there are some very good English managers and

:19:50.:19:52.

coaches out there. Eddie Howe for example has done an

:19:53.:19:56.

amazing job. An absolutely fantastic job. If they don't build a statue of

:19:57.:20:00.

him at Bournemouth, I don't know who would! All we can do as British

:20:01.:20:07.

coaches is keep working hard and try to be successful. Over time maybe we

:20:08.:20:12.

will be recognised from one of the biggest clubs? Who knows? And from

:20:13.:20:17.

the supporters view at the weekend this is one of those games, with

:20:18.:20:22.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic... Especially in these parts, the north-west hotbed

:20:23.:20:25.

of football that it is, we have been on the rise for the last few years

:20:26.:20:29.

and playing some of the superpowers of football, for Burnley fans they

:20:30.:20:32.

will be quietly delighted. Even those who question why I don't

:20:33.:20:37.

play Steven! They will be delighted. -- why I don't placed even before.

:20:38.:20:48.

He scores for Burnley! In this wonderful Lancashire setting, can

:20:49.:20:50.

you clear up the story about the Friday for bits and the players

:20:51.:20:56.

going in this river? It's grown legs somewhere, it's a bit of banter with

:20:57.:21:00.

the lads, it isn't weakly. We made one team out of three teams who lost

:21:01.:21:05.

a round robin, and we made them sit in there for a minute.

:21:06.:21:09.

Good fun for the lads on the bridge behind me. We don't do it every

:21:10.:21:14.

week, it isn't a coaching plan! Not something you learn on the Pro

:21:15.:21:18.

Licence? You would be surprised that this range stories going out. It is

:21:19.:21:24.

cold, no matter what time of year, trust me! I will decline your

:21:25.:21:27.

invitation but thank you for your time!

:21:28.:21:34.

They are not mathematically safe yet...

:21:35.:21:36.

Burnley have been in the Premier League before

:21:37.:21:38.

Will they do it? The Swansea team are in real trouble, but Shaun Daesh

:21:39.:21:49.

is a realist. He knows the players that he has, and their strengths and

:21:50.:21:54.

weaknesses. And he plays to their strengths. They are organised, they

:21:55.:21:58.

have more of a goal threat this season compared to last time they

:21:59.:22:01.

were in the Premier League. He's done an unbelievable job and I

:22:02.:22:04.

thought at the start of the season they would be in a relegation scrap.

:22:05.:22:09.

They are not really down where Swansea and Hull are at the moment,

:22:10.:22:13.

fighting for their lives. What do you admire about what he's done from

:22:14.:22:16.

a distance? He looks like someone who can motivate the players, he

:22:17.:22:20.

looks like a shout and personally I would not respond to that, but a lot

:22:21.:22:27.

of footballers do -- shouter. And Turf Moor is a very old-fashioned

:22:28.:22:31.

ground, they've got that going for them. They are an anomaly in their

:22:32.:22:35.

home form? Yes, it's a different experience going there to Old

:22:36.:22:40.

Trafford or the emirates or Anfield. Did that bother you? That the fans

:22:41.:22:44.

were right on top of you? Not really, it's an old-fashioned ground

:22:45.:22:49.

but they've got a tremendous home form, but I disagree about the

:22:50.:22:53.

shouting thing, in terms of... It is the information. Players will see

:22:54.:22:57.

through a manager if they are talking nonsense in a second. The

:22:58.:23:02.

Burnley, they do not play fantasy couple. He keeps the players

:23:03.:23:07.

grounded. That is why they have been successful this season -- but

:23:08.:23:11.

Burnley do not play Fantasy Football Club appears a fan of Howe, he wants

:23:12.:23:21.

a statue of him at Bournemouth. There are not many managers like

:23:22.:23:23.

that in the Premier League, where can they take Burnley? Do they have

:23:24.:23:28.

too aspired to be stoic, cementing a place in the middle of the Premier

:23:29.:23:32.

League? I think that Burnley fans will take that, don't get too far

:23:33.:23:36.

ahead of themselves -- should they aspire to be Stoke?

:23:37.:23:39.

Elis' good friend, John Robins, lives and breathes football.

:23:40.:23:41.

Cheers! Hi, I'm comedian and digital DJ John Robins. Ask any man on the

:23:42.:23:58.

street what they associate with me and they will tell you... Who?

:23:59.:24:05.

That's right, football! I've got all of the kit, get there, I play once a

:24:06.:24:11.

week, you're welcome! And I know all of the lingo... Oh rest, you silly

:24:12.:24:16.

goose can he touched it with his hand! The beautiful game, the

:24:17.:24:21.

correct run, massive that snooker, call it what you will, I love

:24:22.:24:22.

football! -- massive City soon .

:24:23.:24:32.

But I have a secret, I've never been to a game. You aren't a real fan.

:24:33.:24:37.

You aren't a real fan. As tedious and argument as it is possible to

:24:38.:24:41.

have come as you don't get it in any other sport. I'm upset with the

:24:42.:24:46.

Ryder Cup, utterly absurd. Nobody has had a go at me for not flying to

:24:47.:24:51.

Madonna in 2012. Like a normal human being I watched it in a friend 's

:24:52.:24:54.

flat and scared a girl I did not know by screaming at Martin Kaymer.

:24:55.:25:00.

So, why don't you go? Why don't you go and watch the beautiful lake

:25:01.:25:03.

tennis from those hallowed plinths? I will tell you why. I don't like

:25:04.:25:08.

crowds, I don't like noise, I don't like traffic. Cheers! I don't like

:25:09.:25:10.

chanting on public transport.

:25:11.:25:17.

I don't like aggression of any kind. In the privacy of my own home,

:25:18.:25:24.

screaming into my own mirror though...

:25:25.:25:27.

You... I get it, you pity me. Because I'm not a real fan! All, sod

:25:28.:25:38.

off! I like sofas and a 1-person, 1-person policy. -- toilet policy. I

:25:39.:25:49.

like solitude! For the armchair and use yes, maybe that should not be a

:25:50.:25:54.

derogatory term any more. They are amazing! Maybe you are supposed to

:25:55.:25:57.

take the Mickey and utter those dreaded words, that you aren't a

:25:58.:26:02.

real fan. How many times have you heard this? The atmosphere was

:26:03.:26:06.

amazing, you were ten minutes late because of the traffic I missed the

:26:07.:26:12.

first goal because I was at the bar, it was amazing but you wouldn't know

:26:13.:26:16.

that, would you? No, I wouldn't. Cheers!

:26:17.:26:21.

I can't imagine you've got a lot of empathy with John there, he's never

:26:22.:26:27.

been to a football match but he is a fan, do you understand that? You are

:26:28.:26:31.

right, no empathy! I can see why you are friends! I can't believe you

:26:32.:26:36.

haven't managed to persuade him to come with you! On a sunny Saturday

:26:37.:26:43.

afternoon to watch Swansea... I tried my best, you really doesn't

:26:44.:26:47.

like crowds. I should start him off with a preseason game or testimonial

:26:48.:26:53.

game. -- he really does not like crowds. I would want him to go to

:26:54.:26:58.

Cardiff or the FA Cup. I do not think he would like it, and Old Firm

:26:59.:27:03.

game, or into Milan versus AC Milan. He is a huge golf fan, I get that

:27:04.:27:07.

point, but he's never been to the Ryder Cup. There are some pure and

:27:08.:27:14.

chess boards fans. Maybe we made it too easy? You did not have the

:27:15.:27:19.

amount of sport on TV that we do now when you were kids... -- pure

:27:20.:27:26.

armchair sports fans. You don't have to defend your friendship! It's an

:27:27.:27:32.

awkward position... I know a lot of tennis fans who have been to

:27:33.:27:35.

Wimbledon... It is difficult to get tickets?! Those who do not support

:27:36.:27:44.

those sports in the same way that football fan support football teams,

:27:45.:27:47.

it is a different culture and he likes to sit at home watching. One

:27:48.:27:51.

of the reasons I could not get him down to the football pitch, he likes

:27:52.:27:55.

his own toilet and ours are the worst in the league! I was thinking,

:27:56.:28:00.

nobody has two suffer this. This is the worst toilet experience... But

:28:01.:28:06.

they have improved now? I don't like them, they are to clean! I don't

:28:07.:28:10.

think John will be going to a football match any time soon...

:28:11.:28:13.

There's live football on the BBC this weekend

:28:14.:28:15.

with the tantalising FA Cup semifinal between the

:28:16.:28:17.

Join Gary Lineker with Frank Lampard, Jermaine Jenas

:28:18.:28:26.

and Alan Shearer on Saturday for Chelsea versus Tottenham

:28:27.:28:28.

I think you've witnessed the start of something special between Chris

:28:29.:28:37.

and Elis. He's my new best friend, or my dad!

:28:38.:28:39.

We'll be back in two weeks' time with some special

:28:40.:28:44.

guests in Leicester, so please join us then.
