The Arsenal Women Arsecast Episode 28: The August Mailbag

Welcome to a brand new episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, the number one podcast about Arsenal Women.

In this episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, Tim Stillman and Alex Ibaceta answer listener questions submitted on Twitter on Arsenal’s summer transfer business and whether it is complete, there are questions on how the team might shape up under new coach Jonas Eidevall, the potential link-up between Steph Catley and Katie McCabe on the left, how Jonas will juggle things at centre-half, to what extent academy players might feature under his stewardship and there are questions on Jordan Nobbs and the futures of some other key players.
You can follow Tim on Twitter @Stillberto and Alex @alexibaceta23

I agree on the need for another midfielder- even if leah slots into midfield, may leave us short on CB (boye, lotte, patten). Depends on how fit jen is. What about schnaderbek? Any news on her? She can slot in quite a few positions.

Thanks for answering my questions. I was afraid you’d agree with Viv probably leaving and Leah also going off for a bit. Even if our midfield is still a bit thinner, I’m so excited to be able to say we have an overload in defence and up front. I think in the womens game we’re still used to wanting everybody to play.

But we’re going to have a great looking bench (if we manage to stay a bit more… Read more »


I can see how everyone is excited about Maanum. Technique wise, I love how she’s confident with her outside kick, which means she doesn’t need to take that extra step after a turn to pass the ball with an inside kick. This split second makes a huge difference.

BTW Tim, minor point but Iwabuchi is 28. She’ll turn 29 next March. But no she’s not 22.
