    Our interviewee this time is Fabrice Muamba - who came up through the Arsenal youth system before making his first-team debut as a teenager shortly after the Invincible season. But his career was drastically cut short aged just 23 after he suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch, while playing for Bolton in 2011. In this episode Fabrice candidly recounts that incident, and the aftermath, revealing how Thierry Henry, among others in the Arsenal family, gave him valuable support and advice at the time.

    Jack Wilshere - Part 1

    Jack Wilshere - Part 1

    Jack Wilshere was on such good form for this interview that we've had to split it in to two. In this first part, he takes us back to when he joined the first team squad for the first time, and made his senior debut aged just 16. He tells us about his breakthrough season in 2010/11 when he was named PFA Young Player of the Season – from the heartbreak of the defeat to Birmingham at Wembley defeat to that incredible performance against Barcelona in the Champions League.
