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

In this episode we discuss the 2-1 defeat to Wolves at the Emirates on Sunday night. We start by talking about the collision between David Luiz and Raul Jimenez which left the Wolves man with a fractured skull. Should the Brazilian have continued, and when is football going to start taking head injuries more seriously? Then it’s the football, and although we intended to analyse the game in some detail, it quickly became a very broad discussion about what’s going at the club right now. The short-term issues versus the long-term needs, the poor decision making from top to bottom, the pressure on Mikel Arteta, whether our footballing identity needs to come from on high or via the manager, personnel and recruitment, Edu’s role, the need for more top-level scrutiny, and how bad it would need to get for things to change in football’s most obvious way. There are also listener questions about Aubameyang, giving more young players a chance, and loads more.

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.
