IT’S a true Northern Powerhouse this week as we focus on a North East team trying to stay in the Premier League and a North West club looking for to join them.

Long term friend Ste Goldsmith from Wise Men Say podcast joins us first after a draw for the Black Cats against Arsenal took them out of the relegation zone. We talk about the futileness of trying to predict who are a good team to play at this stage of the season….and then try to predict whether Sunderland’s remaining opposition are good teams to play at this stage of the season.

Ste is in a chipper mood so we even try to get him to focus on what Sunderland need to do if/when they stay up to try and move on from Sunderland’s annual relegation fight.

Next up is a Coach Home debut for journalist Tyrone Marshall, who covers Burnley for The Lancashire Telegraph. He tries to explain why Burnley haven’t lost since 2012 and the spirit of togetherness that runs throughout the club.

They talk about an under rated manager, a striker who has won Championship player of the year and some fantastic away ends caught on camera.

That’s The Coach Home this week. Tell your mates.
