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

The World Cup is underway and that’s the main focus of today’s podcast, but with a close look at the Arsenal players taking part and how things are going for them. We discuss the use of VAR, and the new deal signed by Granit Xhaka which shows he’s likely to be a key part of Unai Emery’s midfield next season. Then we answer questions about Mesut Ozil and why there seems to be such debate and discussion about him as a player and his performances, the participation of the U21s in the Checkatrade Trophy next season, and lots more besides including a smattering of Jeff Goldblum.

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.
