  • Episode 753: Sweating over Saka

    01:03:21
    In this episode I'm joined by Phil Costa to discuss our 2-1 defeat to Lens in the Champions League. We chat about team selection, benefitting from a mistake to go ahead early before a mistake of our own led to an equaliser, a lack of conviction in some of our chances, the goal we conceded to lose the game, and how we struggled creatively. There's also discussion of Kai Havertz in midfield, Leandro Trossard, and of course the injury to Bukayo Saka which leaves us sweating ahead of Sunday's game against Man City. Plus some Champions League round-up, PGMOL audio and more.Follow Phil @_philcostaGet extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog

  • 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

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 - 18.09.2023

    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
