Patrick Kendrick takes the reigns as the main host for the first time in this episode with Nicky Bandini and Mina Rzouki as we discuss all the drama (that word comes up every week, doesn't it???) of Round 15 of the Serie A season, including Juventus defeating Napoli.
Juventus topped the table briefly after bianconeri cult hero Federico Gatti headed home the winner against Napoli and we wonder what's more important - to win in an aesthetically pleasing way, or just to win dammit!?!?
Is Napoli better off since Walter Mazzarri took over as manager from Rudi Garcia?

Inter keeps striding forward with goals aplenty and playing some lovely football, but is still only two points clear of Juventus after the latest 4-0 demolition of Udinese at San Siro. Will Simone Inzaghi's men handle the pressure being applied by the bianconeri on their Scudetto charge, or will one of the two fall away?
After a miraculous last ditch backheeled winner by Luis Muriel for Atalanta, where does Milan go from here? Can the rossoneri get through the Champions League group stage or at least progress through to the Europa League?
Has the group stage of the European competitions been a success for the Italian clubs so far?
This week the man who does his best work after the 94th minute popped up yet again. Cagliari's Leonardo Pavoletti scored a 99th minute winner with an overhead kick after the Casteddu trailed Sassuolo. We ask the important question: Would you have him in Luciano Spalletti's Italy squad?
And if you want drama, chaos, confusion and craziness, we give you Roma and Jose Mourinho, with more discussion about the madness of Roma v Fiorentina following on from Nicky's Mourinho Show voice note.
And we end with some Q&A about Serie A clubs' youth setups and new stadiums (stadia?) ... which will probably never get built! ... Oh Italy, we love you so!!!
