What Happened to the Super League? (with Josh Robinson)
Show Notes

We are joined by Wall Street Journal reporter Josh Robinson to talk about the sudden collapse of the Super League, why it happened, and what comes next. Robinson is also the co-author of a book about the founding of the Premier League, The Club, and we think about why that breakaway succeeded but this one failed.

And you absolutely must stick around for his anecdote about how Man City decided to join up with the Super League.
