Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.
On this week’s show we chat about the players who are away on international duty, including Granit Xhaka’s performance against Germany, before we touch on some of the aspects of our secret weekend game against Aston Villa, even though nobody saw any of it. Dani Ceballos has returned but midfield recruitment remains a major concern, so we discuss the Thomas Partey situation, as well as Houssem Aouar, Matteo Guendouzi featuring for France U21s, and we ponder what the future might hold for Mesut Ozil after his inclusion in the friendly. There are listener questions about our starting XI for Fulham, some over/unders in various categories, the delay in Aubameyang’s contract, what we can expect from Nicolas Pepe this season, and loads more – including the shocking Take That truth they don’t want you to know, and your chance to win a mug from PlayBook Products.
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).
Also, if you’re a fan of the show, please leave us a rating/review on iTunes, it’d be greatly appreciated.
