Episode 578: Contracts + Dr Buckles

Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast – the Arsenal podcast.

On this week’s show we have two guests for you. First up, Jason Shardlow-Wrest, a dispute resolution/litigation lawyer at Linklaters to chat about the difficult issue of player contracts. Some of them expire on June 30th, but proposals from FIFA to extend them are just guidelines right now. We chat about the implications on clubs, players and agents, wonder about what might happen loan players like Dani Ceballos, as well as the transfer market and players whose contracts expire next year that Arsenal might have wanted to sell this summer.

Then, for a lovely, long rambly-chat I’m joined by comedian, writer and podcaster Adam Buxton. We talk about his brand new audiobook which is out now, podcasting, being nervous when interviewing famous people like Marc Maron, my anxiety dream ahead of this interview, doing silly voices, plus lockdown TV viewing – some of it quite saucy – and loads more besides.


Read Jason’s blog on contracts here – and the Linklaters sports blog here.

Adam’s Audiobook is available from Audible – and you can find his podcast at or in all good podcast apps!
