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

On this extra Arsecast Extra we go back over the 3-0 defeat to Man City, not quite the glorious return to football we were hoping for, but not particularly surprising anyway. We chat about team selection, how the early injuries might have impacted Mikel Arteta’s game-plan, some small shoots of positivity, and then when it all started to go wrong. David Luiz was culpable, with a mistake, conceding a penalty and a red card, and we discuss his role on the night and what his role should be going forward. There’s the omission of Mesut Ozil from the squad entirely, defensive problems due to injuries and suspensions, and we talk at length about the need to resolve some big, long-standing issues before we can start to move on as a football club.

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.

You can subscribe to the Arsecast Extra on iTunes by clicking here. Or if you want to subscribe directly to the feed URL you can do so too (this is a much better way to do it as you don’t experience the delays from iTunes).
