On transfer deadline day, have a listen to former England and Middlesex spinner Phil Tufnell give us his thoughts on Arsenal's start to the season and his Rugby World Cup predictions.
Arsenal fan Tufnell was talking to us while launching his autobiography Where Am I?, which was released last week, and he began by joking about Arsenal losing the opening game of the season to West Ham.
"(We were) very optimistic until we played West Ham...and then it went awry," he laughed.
"It's amazing, isn't it that after three games everybody starts having a moan but I'm sure we'll get our act together...top four, like we usually are and we'll see how we go.
"We might need another one or two players to sign up," he said referring to the impending closure of the transfer window as deadline day excitement grips the country.
Looking further ahead, we challenged him to tell us who would win the Rugby World Cup, which begins on 18th September.
England have been placed in a tough pool alongside Australia, Fiji, Uruguay and Wales but Tufnell is confident they will progress.
"I think the Aussies are playing pretty well, New Zealand are always going to be there or thereabouts," he began.
"I think we've got a good squad, we've got a lot of strength in depth, people fighting for places so I think we've got every chance.
"We've got to get out of that group but I think Twickenham might help that and then who knows?
"If we can build on that home advantage...we'll be in the shake up."
Read and listen to Tufnell's thoughts on the new autobiography here, which focusses heavily on the journey he has taken since retiring from cricket.
