Arseblog Arsecast, The Arsenal Podcast
Arsecast Extra Episode 491 - 26.09.1971
In this Interlull episode, we chat about the record breaking day for Arsenal Women as they beat Sp*rs 4-0, injury concerns over some of our players as we head into October, not least Thomas Partey who withdrew from the Ghana squad with a knee injury. We discuss his ongoing issues, and how Arsenal need to give it very careful consideration, as well as Kieran Tierney and Takehiro Tomiyasu. Then we answer listener questions about that October schedule, Raul Sanllehi's interview with The Athletic, debut goalscorers, and lots more – including some very suspect FIFA 23 graphics as we rate the entire squad based on a video.
Here's the Tweet with the question: https://twitter.com/riyanvatcha/status/1574410628605018114
Here is the YouTube video with all the squad faces! While this is allegedly Mikel Arteta.

Arsecast Extra Episode 546 - 25.09.202301:21:35In 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
Episode 751: Back at the top table56:18In this episode I'm joined Phil Costa to discuss our 4-0 win over PSV in the Champions League on Wednesday night. We chat about the team line-up; Bukayo Saka scoring his first CL goal on his debut appearance in the competition and his statistically impressive season so far; Leandro Trossard getting on the scoresheet again; a big performance from Gabriel Jesus who also got a goal; Martin Odegaard's trademark; the importance of the defensive platform we have to be able to attack as well as we did; Arsenal returning to the Champions League with a bang, and more.We also have a quick chat about some of the highlights from week 1 of the Champions League.Follow Phil @_philcosta
Arsecast Extra Episode 545 - 18.09.202301:34:56In 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
