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

On this week’s show I’m joined by Arsenal’s former Director of High Performance, Darren Burgess. We chat about the impact lockdown will have on the fitness of the players, and what they have done to offset that during this period. There’s a risk of injury, but what exactly should managers and fitness staff be prepared for, as well as discussion of individual training plans, which players might be best able to cope, how 5 subs might help, and lots more.

These are the two articles I mention in the opening part of the podcast.

1 – This is a We thing – Caron Butler on the Player’s Tribune

2 – We can’t breathe – Gary Younge for the New Statesman

The Stadio podcast episode I reference is here.
