Race to the Bottom Podcast
Wembley’s proposed sale reviewed, and a tale of two Sterlings.
The construction of Wembley stadium was both over budget and late in its completion. I look at the possible long-term implications of a governing body without a national stadium as the F.A's proposed sale to Fulham F.C owner Shahid Kahn, appears to be gathering steam,. Later in the show, I review the media's treatment of Raheem Sterling ask whether there will come a time when athletes call out their critics.
