This week’s Hold the Back Page podcast, with regulars Neil Sherwin, Ger McCarthy and Bleacher Report's Willie Gannon, looks at the epic Champions League Final between Chelsea and Bayern Munich, the hectic final day of Premier League action, Spurs' chances in the Europa League and England’s squad for the European Championships.

This pod kicks off with a look at Chelsea’s Champions League Final win over Bayern Munich on Saturday. There’s talk about the future’s of Didier Drogba and Roberto Di Matteo as well as the antics of John Terry at the trophy presentation, which almost sparked a row between the lads as two completely different views of the England defender emerge.

Ger and Willie also take time to discuss the fallout from Chelsea’s result, which sees Spurs miss out on a Champions League spot for next season.

Part two looks at the dramatic final day of the Premier League, when Manchester City claimed the title with almost the last kick of the game. Neil is understandably elated about the outcome, particularly as it came at the expense of rivals United.

To finish, the lads discuss the Liverpool manager’s job and Roy Hodgson’s Engand selection for Euro 2012—with Willie well and truly dismissing their chances of Euro 2012 glory.
