The showpiece showcase showdown between Real Madrid and Liverpool is fast approaching and it's an intriguing conclusion to a UEFA Champions League season that's thrown up a few surprises and a handful of memorable matches. Now we're at the business end, we couldn't resist; this week's Football Fives Podcast is all about the continent's elite competition.

Daniel Storey was probably doing someone else's podcast so it's down to David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee to put the spotlight on the latter stages. We ask whether the Champions League final could or should be played outside Europe, whether the Group Stage is anything more than a procession and whether Liverpool and Roma have blown open the doors.

And we look forward to this year's final - complete with some likely wayward predictions - and back to our favourite finals of all. We'll just assume Dan's would have been rather close to home...

Shahid Khan's bid to buy Wembley from the Football Association - its spiritual and current owner, if not its traditional one - has put the national stadium at the heart of the conversation about the soul of English football. In this week's Football Fives Podcast we dedicate our unnecessarily rigid five-question format to the old place.

It's a full house as Daniel Storey, David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee delve into the life and times of Wembleys original and rebuilt, discussing our personal perspectives on the stadium, our favourite ever Wembley memories and the statues that aren't outside the ground but bloody well should be.

And, of course, we talk about the sale. Should the FA take the money and run? Is it a good deal? Should the England team vacate the premises rather than become a tenant in their own home? You'll have to listen to find out. So go on. Listen. Seriously.
