Manchester United are to add to their squad with the acquisition of Juan Mata from Chelsea, but will the Spaniard be enough to get the club’s side back on track? David Moyes’ side exited the Capital One Cup at the semi final stage against Sunderland this week, are they lacking real leadership?

Ger and Neil get stuck into Manchester City’s deal to take ownership of the A-League’s Melbourne Heart and debate franchises and re-branding amongst other things.

There’s a preview of this weekend’s FA Cup fixtures, with few sparking any real excitement, before the pod finishes with discussion around ACL injuries as Colombia’s star man Falcao looks set to miss the World Cup.
