The Overlap In Focus

We’re back with a brand new strand, in focus. With voices from the fans & respected journalists, we dive into the biggest topics in football.

Up first is the aftermath from the Carabao Cup Final. Gary is joined by Jamie Carragher, Carl Anka & Laurie Whitwell from the Athletic and fans from Manchester United & Newcastle. We discuss Manchester United’s rise and what this means for the club going forwards. Are Manchester United in the title race? Will Harry Kane join in the summer? And who is the top replacement for David De Gea?

Then for Newcastle, what does the loss mean? Did Nick Pope’s suspension cost them in the final? And could the club get a top 4 spot?

Our Arsenal fans are as confident as ever, but Gary is still sceptical on Arsenal’s title challenge, doubting their experience.

But is this a different Manchester City team to their previous title winning sides? Did Manchester City make a mistake selling Zinchenko & Jesus to Arsenal? And will allowing Joao Cancelo leave the club come back to haunt them? Has Pep Guardiola made a major mistake?

Finally, we discuss the potential sale of Manchester United. Gary is joined by Jamie, Shay Given, Carl Anka & Laurie Whitwell from The Athletic and fans from Manchester United & Newcastle United.

With potential buyers on the table, the group discusses who could take over at Manchester United, and the ramifications of the purchase.

What would state ownership mean for the club? How much would the club sell for? Our Newcastle United fans & Shay Given share their perspective on their club ownerships before Jamie discusses if Liverpool would be sold.
