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

On this week’s show, James and I discuss the issue player wages and the proposed pay cut by Arsenal. Is it as simple as just accepting the terms, or is it a more complicated issue that needs to be discussed carefully and considerately before implementation? On the surface it’s not a great look for well paid sportsmen, but what about the owners and other highly paid executives? Where does that money go? And if players take a cut, what are the implications for other staff at the club? We chat about all that, plus answer listener questions about contract negotiations, people’s relationship to football, scouting then and now, what we’re missing about football and loads 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.
