There's plenty or rooting and indeed tooting on today's Football Weekly Extra, with James Richardson joined in the pod by Barry Glendenning, Tom Lutz and Owen Gibson - only one of whom has developed a new-found respect for officialdom.
The podders start by dissecting Rafa Benítez's rant following his side's 2-0 win away to Middlesbrough in the FA Cup. Was he right to hit back at the fans that constantly boo him and a Chelsea hierarchy that has some considerable previous when it comes to falling out with managers? Do you care? If not, you might want to skip part one.
Next, we head to continental Europe, where David Beckham made his first start for PSG and Joey Barton pointed out that Zlatan has quite the hooter. We also hear from Sid Lowe about Barcelona's latest confidence-sapping defeat to Real Madrid and why Cliff Richard was done a mischief by General Franco. You'll be pleased to know too that we delve deeper into the love that dare not speak its name between the Doctor and AC Jimbo, which has apparently got some imaginations running wild.
Finally, we look ahead to the weekend's action in the Premier League, including the north London derby and QPR's latest failed attempt to kick-start their revival as they travel – and probably lose, badly – away to Southampton.
Amy Lawrence and Philippe Auclair will be with us on Monday, and Jimbo's European paper review will be with you on Friday morning. And who knows, maybe Avram Grant will be back at Stamford Bridge by then too.
