In this month’s mailbag edition, Tim Stillman and Alex Ibaceta review the season that was and take listener questions on Vivianne Miedema’s future, Frida Maanum’s role next season, where Arsenal might look to strengthen in the summer transfer window and whether it will be revolution or evolution in the market, the types of players Jonas might sign as well as the positions, the prospect of the team training with the U16s boys’ team next season and the benefits that might bring, Anna Patten and what Arsenal might be looking for in a back-up goalkeeper next season. There is also a short interview with Beth Mead at the end of the podcast.

You can follow Tim on Twitter @Stillberto, and Alex @alexibaceta23
