Jules & Andy: How players are coping in isolation, with Arsenal physio Gary Lewin

It’s a slightly different episode of Jules & Andy today as, with Jules currently unwell, Andy Brassell is joined by presenter and pundit Kate Mason!

After Kate tells us what it was like to present the news last night whilst introducing the Prime Minister’s address, we wonder how footballers themselves are dealing with these unprecedented times. To help shed some light on this, we speak to former Arsenal and England physio Gary Lewin. He discusses the mental challenges facing players who live almost entirely regimented lives, and how even big Premier League clubs will struggle to find the resources needed to adequately train their players.

We then discuss what initiatives clubs are running in their local communities to help those affected by the crisis, as well as getting to some correspondence – which features a few ideas on how smaller clubs might be supported in the future.

We'd love to here from you in these unprecedented, chaotic times - email us at: julesandandy@footballrambledaily.com or tweet us @JulesBreach @AndyBrassell @KvlMason!
