Arsecast Extra Episode 479 - 04.07.2022

In this episode Tim Stillman is in for James who is on his holidays and thus misses the big out of the blue signing of Gabriel Jesus from Man City. We talk about the player, the deal, what he'll bring to the team next season, and the fact he's made it clear he's coming in as the number 9 and what we can expect in that regard. There's plenty of ancillary Jesus discussion too, as well as a look at the other transfers thus far, plus listener questions about what would constitute a successful window, what might happen with returning loan players like Hector Bellerin and Ainsley Maitland-Niles, competing against big clubs for good players, Arsenal Women transfer rumours and LOADS more.

  • Episode 752: Reiss lightning

    50:54
    In this episode I'm joined by Sam Dean to chat about Arsenal's 1-0 EFL Cup win over Brentford on Wednesday evening. A much-changed side got the win, but it was almost a tale of two halves as there was a lot of defending to in the second period. We chat about the match itself, some of the individuals – including Emile Smith Rowe, Reiss Nelson, Kai Havertz and Aaron Ramsdale – and how that might boost a squad which is going to need its full depth because of injuries right now. We also chat about how Mikel Arteta will view the EFL Cup itself, and lots more.Follow Sam @samjdeanGet extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog

    In this episode I'm joined by Andrew Allen to discuss the 2-2 draw in the North London derby. We chat about the opening half hour, going ahead, and then a sliding doors moment when Gabriel Jesus could have put us 2-0 up. We analyse the penalty we were awarded, and goals we conceded, and also wonder about the regularity of making individual errors at home. Half-time subs, late changes, putting the draw in the context of this fixture and our start to the season, plus lots of questions about centre-forward and Eddie Nketiah, injuries mounting up, what kind of team we'll pick for the EFL Cup game on Wednesday 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 545 - 18.09.2023

    01:34:56
    In this episode we look back at the 1-0 win over Everton on Sunday. We chat about Arsenal's control of this game (and others this season), and whether it comes at a cost to our attacking play. We then discuss the Gabriel Martinelli disallowed goal, Fabio Vieira's selection in midfield, the set-piece play and finish from Leandro Trossard which won the game, before moving on to the big talking point – David Raya starting over Aaron Ramsdale. Mikel Arteta's post-game comments about that decision were fascinating – are we about to see a new era of goalkeeping rotation, or was this simply a changing of the guard. Then there are listener questions about Declan Rice's influence, hoodoo games we'd like to win, Eddie Nketiah/Gabriel Jesus and the centre-forward role, winning lots of corners, and loads more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
