The Overlap with Gary Neville

The reporters and journalists constitute an integral part in football: They provide news and perspectives. In the old days, they were the only channel for which the footballers communicate with the outside world, albeit in an indirect way. Nowadays the podcasts offer a channel for the athletes to directly talk to the fans with little to no filter. Many footballers opened their podcasts in recent years. As a hardcore football fan, I was especially excited having these opportunities to get to know them first hand. However, I became equally picky in choosing podcasts to follow, since there are simply too many today. I am now recommending “The Overlap with Gary Neville” as one of the best in my listening experience.

Let me first say that I was never a Gary Neville fan when he played. Yeah, he was a regular in the England national team for over a decade. But he was the weakest one in England’s “golden generation”of the 2000s. I was then in college and played Pro Evolution Soccer day and night with my friends. England was one of the most popular choices in the video game, for a very good reason: They had an almost impeccable squad: Owen and Rooney in the front, Joe Cole, Gerrard, Lampard, and Beckham in the midfield, Ashley Cole, Ferdinand, Terry, and Neville in the backline. In goal, they tried Seaman, Robinson, James, and many more but never found a reliable goalkeeper. Among the outfield players, Neville at the rightback is clearly weakest. The substitute at this position, Carragher from Liverpool, is as weak, if not weaker. Coincidentally, Carragher also entered media after retirement and had an extremely successful career. He is seen everywhere: Sky Sport in the UK as well as CBS Sports in the US. Neville-Carragher partnership in presenting Manchester United-Liverpool games is must-watch TV.

Gary Neville is a one-club man. He played for Manchester United in his whole career, for nearly 20 years. Yet too, he was the weakest link in all these years. Overall, Neville, to me, is like a brat who entered Harvard on some bogus scholarship and could not stop talking Harvard in life. Nevertheless, he is well-educated and well-connected in football, both of which are critical for a high-quality podcast. The guests in “The Overlap with Gary Neville” are top in the profession. The conversations are constructive and often deep. Neville speaks with a bit squeaky voice and has a Manchester accent (though relatively light). Overtime, he sounds okay to my ears.

Seaman and Crouch, former England internationals too, have regular podcasts that are similar to Neville’s: A blend of in-season football news and periodic guest interviews.

Seaman is now probably recognized as the victim of Ronaldinho’s famous long-range free kick in the 2002 World Cup. He was quite old then and was not agile at all because of his age. He was selected to the World Cup mainly as a result of lack of English talent in goalkeeper. Seaman was heavily criticized because of this mistake and quickly retired afterwards. The highlight of Seaman’s football career is in the 1990s with Arsenal. His podcast “Seaman Says” invites many of his contemporaries such as his Arsenal teammates Adams, Dixon, Keown, Wright, etc. This podcast might be of interest to older fans than me, and of course to Arsenal supporters.

Crouch is now probably remembered as that tall guy in the England team of 2000s. He is over 2 meters tall and had a unique attribute in football because of his height. He must had plenty of doubts whether he could make it in football. Crouch was never a top striker in any phase of his career. His football career is also diametrically different from the likes of Neville and Seaman. He was a journeyman who played for over ten teams in his career. None of these teams was particularly strong, some of which were even in the lower tier than the Premier League. Luckily for him, not only he survived as a professional footballer, he also succeeded by becoming an England international. All of these experiences give him a valuable perspective from a regular footballer which is too rarely heard. From his podcast, Crouch appears to be quite a character. His “That Peter Crouch Podcast” has a different flavor from Neville’s, in terms of undertone and content. It should too be regarded as a valuable addition to the football world.
