    Who Suffers the Most from Missing Out on the Champions League?

    Every season, it’s the same. Four teams, four spots.
    But this season, there’s a twist.
    With Manchester City the potential recipients of a Champions League ban, we could see a surprise addition to the competition’s English quota.
    The race for the Champions League will see some clubs’ fortunes made and some clubs’ fortunes dented.
    In this episode, we ask: what does this year’s race for the Champions League look like? And who is set to lose the most by missing out?

    Could a Broadcasting Rights Dispute Scupper the Newcastle Takeover Bid?

    Could a Broadcasting Rights Dispute Scupper the Newcastle Takeover Bid?

    Earlier this year, it was announced that the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia was close to securing an 80% share of Newcastle United. But time has passed and the deal still remains incomplete.
    In fact, the Premier League have an almighty dilemma on their hands. Not the obvious moral dilemma… but one that involves the esoteric world of broadcasting rights. 
    The introduction of a Saudi player in the marketplace of the Premier League puts the league at the heart of a row that has riven the middle east for the last three years.
    In this episode, we ask: how could a broadcast rights deal scupper the Saudi takeover of Newcastle United?

    Is Bayern's Dominance Bad for German Football?

    Is Bayern's Dominance Bad for German Football?

    2012 might not seem that long ago but the world was a very different place back then…
    There was a different political situation for a start…
    The Olympics were held in London…
    And Instagram released on Android devices…
    But in the world of football, something even more remarkable happened… A team named Bayern Munich didn’t win the Bundesliga.
    Last week, Bayern confirmed that they would finish the season top of the table again.
    The Bavarian club have now won eight Meisterschalen in a row, raising questions about the league’s attractiveness to foreign audiences.
    In this episode, we ask: is Bayern’s dominance an issue for German football?
    Guest:
