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

In this episode James and I discuss the disappointing opening game of the new Premier League season after Arsenal were beaten 2-0 by Brentford. We chat about notable pre-game absences and a team which didn’t look ready in spite of those, the goals we conceded, Bernd Leno, a wobbly defence, some positive stuff from the likes of Smith Rowe, Tierney and Lokonga, what bringing on a left-back at right back might mean, and more. As well as that there are loads of listener questions about Mikel Arteta and the kind of football we play, what will it take to make it go ‘bang’, the manager’s comments about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, whether we should revert to a back three, and plenty more, plus the winners of the competition to win signed copies of James’ book.
