Arsecast Extra Episode 438 - 19.10.2021
In this episode we look back at the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday night. We chat about the bright start but the inability to build on it, the goals we conceded, Arsenal's passive off-the-ball approach, continued concerns about the team's lack of attacking productivity, the late equaliser which rescued a point against Patrick Vieira's team, and the abysmal refereeing decision when James McArthur only got a yellow card for a brutal foul on Bukayo Saka. Then there are listener questions about Arsenal as a possession side, Thomas Partey and how midfield might look in January when he goes to the AFCON, Martin Odegaard's second poor performance in a row, movement and passing, officiating the officials, Alexandre Lacazette, sprucing up the Emirates and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog

Arsecast Extra Episode 437 - 11.10.2021
In this Interlull episode we begin by talking about a couple of goalscoring Gooners, before the conversation switches to the inevitable: the Newcastle takeover. We chat about what it might mean for Arsenal, the wider implications for the competitiveness of the Premier League, the 'morality' of it, the requirement for cognitive dissonance, and the reaction of fans to this kind of deal and ownership. There are some more questions about it in part two, as well as ones about the load being placed on players these days after comments from Thibaut Courtois, Gabriel Martinelli, goalkeepers, Arsenal James Bond, and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog

Arsecast Extra Episode 436 - 04.10.2021
In this episode we look back at the 0-0 draw with Brighton on Saturday, in which too many of our key players didn't perform at the level required. We talk about the result in isolation, and in the context of the last four games, some positives at the back with Gabriel, Ben White and Aaron Ramsdale, Emile Smith Rowe as our best player, and at least keeping a clean sheet and taking a point after an anti-climactic performance. Then there are listener questions about the key area we need to see improvement in, Nicolas Pepe, Kieran Tierney, Arsene Wenger's backing for a World Cup every two years, and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog

James is is back from his holidays on what is a very goodly morning following the 3-1 win in the North London derby. There's a flavour of the atmosphere inside the Emirates, the energy that transmitted around the ground, a brilliant first half performance with some outstanding individual contributions, a huge win for Mikel Arteta, a goal and an assist each for Smith Rowe and Saka, and pretty much everyone gets a mention for the way we put the old enemy to the sword.
