This week on The Indy Football Podcast the team ask whether the growing financial disparity between Europe’s superclubs and the rest has irreparably broken football.

Host Luke Brown is joined by Chief Football Writer Miguel Delaney, Feature Writer Vithushan Ehantharajah and Sports Editor Ben Burrows to discuss the future of the club game and ask what comes next.

Miguel’s recent special report – ‘How modern football became broken beyond repair’ – is analysed and we respond to your recent feedback.

And, in the second part of the podcast, we attempt to offer some solutions for how we can begin to fix football. Is supporting local clubs the answer? And, at this point, would it be better for the most powerful clubs to go ahead and form a European Super League?

All that and more.
