The announcement that 12 European football clubs intend to form a 'super league' occupied the top of the news agenda for most of the day on Monday.

Why does football - a game designed for entertainment, predominantly followed by men - occupy such a significant place in Britain's public discourse?

In this episode of the New Statesman podcast, Stephen Bush and Ailbhe Rea discuss the place of football in news, politics, and political reporting.

Then, in You Ask Us, they take your questions on why Britain seems unable to attract a high calibre of mayoral candidate compared to other countries.
