Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.

On this week’s show we reflect on the week since the announcement of Unai Emery taking over as head coach, with some thoughts about hopes about what the Spaniard is going to do and how he’s going to do it. We discuss the strong links to experienced defenders Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner, and what those arrivals might say about our approach and the rest of the transfer business we need to do this summer. We answer questions about the Sven Mislintat impact, the other signings we might make as well as our traditional predictions about how we’ll spend between now and the end of the transfer window, which players might improve under Emery and lots more.

Remember, you can send us questions via which we’ll try and get to each week. Send them to either @arseblog or @Gunnerblog (or both) using the hashtag #arsecastextra. Best to send them Monday morning so they get noticed more easily.
