SportsPro editor at large Eoin Connolly and editorial director Michael Long are joined on the line by Matt Slater, football news and investigations reporter at The Athletic. 

In a week that could offer a glimpse of club soccer's future, they discuss tech giant Amazon's Premier League broadcast debut and the implications of its biggest technical challenge in live sport so far. And after the shock resignation of incoming chief executive David Pemsel, they ask who England's top flight might look to next for leadership.

There's also time to reflect on the latest developments in the long-running Russian doping saga, with WADA's executive committee set to meet in Lausanne next week to consider a four-year ban from elite sport for the country after another series of transgressions.
