Can you believe it? Manchester City has pulled off an incredible double win! We kick off this episode by breaking down the historical significance of this achievement, taking a closer look at both City's and United's lineups, and giving a well-deserved moment of appreciation to the double champs.

Things take a turn as we assess Manchester United's lackluster season and explore the potential retirement of the legendary Zlatan Ibrahimovic. We're not holding back on our analysis – from United's need for a passer and a striker to City's impressive season, and of course, Zlatan's unparalleled career in football.

Lastly, we dive into football legacies and potential moves for big players like Karim Benzema, who's leaving Real Madrid after an awe-inspiring 14 years and five Champions League titles. We ponder the possibility of Harry Kane replacing Benzema and the challenges that might come with that decision. Don't miss out on our reflections of the rollercoaster year that was 2023 in football, and join us for all the latest updates in this unforgettable episode.
