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

I’m joined this week by the Guardian’s Nick Ames to discuss the official arrival of Gabriel from Lille, and what we can reasonably expect from him this season. We chat about the reshaping of the defence, the need to move players on, and the big job Mikel Arteta has to do in midfield.

After that, with details of how the reintroduction of fans is going to work, I talk to Tim Payton from the AST about ballots, ticket allocations, memberships, what exactly a match day is going to look like for people who are lucky enough to be able to attend, and lots more.
