Arsecast Extra Episode 579 - 15.04.2024

In this episode we look back at the 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday which, despite being our first loss of 2024, has caused a significant amount frustration and disappointment. We examine the reasons for that response, reflect on game of two halves in which the Gunners can have attacking regrets in the first and defensive ones in the second, as well as discussing why it felt like Mikel Artets allowed the game to get away from us after the break. Then there are listener questions beginning with Oleksandr Zinchenko's performance and what that might mean for his future, who plays at left-back in the Champions League, home and away form, Emile Smith Rowe, Fabio Vieira and lots more.

  • Arsecast Extra Episode 585 - 21.05.2024

    01:34:37
    In this episode we reflect on the final day of the season, in which a 2-1 win over Everton wasn't enough to win us the title because of what happened elsewhere. We chat about how we feel after a long, mostly enjoyable campaign, but without the success everyone had hoped for, as well as contextualising Man City's fourth successive title and what it means for the Premier League as a competition. We have some listener questions about Emile Smith Rowe, whether or not it's realistic to think we can raise the level again next season, Cedric the werewolf, and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
  • Episode 783 - The Final Day

    01:13:51
    In this episode I'm joined by Tim Stillman to chat about the idea of rivalry in the wake of Man City beating Spurs, and whether that's something managers should pay attention to. We also discuss Mikel Arteta's influence on this Arsenal team and how fans bought into his communication, in contrast to how Tottenham fans reacted to Ange Postecoglou's comments. Then we consider the final day of the season, and how we've pushed City all the way with the outside chance of still winning the league.Then Tim reflects on the Arsenal career of Vivianne Miedema who's departure was announced this week, as well as some chat about that decision, how it came to pass, and what might happen on the final day of the season.Follow Tim @stillmanatorBuy Is Yours Gold here - https://www.legendspublishing.net/product/is-yours-gold/ – and use GOLD20 to get 20% off.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
  • Arsecast Extra Episode 584 - 12.05.2024

    01:16:56
    In this episode recorded not long after the game, we look back at Arsenal's 1-0 win over Man Utd at Old Trafford on Sunday. It wasn't a great performance, but Leandro Trossard's first half goal was enough for all three points and to keep the title push going until the final day. We chat about why the attacking performance was so inhibited, but there's praise for the way we defended against a United side that offered little to threaten us. Underlying it all though, was a sense of pre-game dread, and we discuss that, and the prospect of the final day, as well as answering listener questions about Spurs game against Man City on Tuesday, William Saliba, and much more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog

Then attention turns to Arsenal, and we talk about William Saliba and how our view of him as Arsenal fans is very different from many in France, Kai Havertz and his development, Martin Odegaard, some broad thoughts on the season as a whole and lots more.Follow Philippe @philippeauclairGet extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
  • Arsenal Women Arsecast Episode 82: Here comes the summer!

    58:24
    On this episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, Tim is joined by Arseblog News match reporter Aidan Gibson. They discuss the win over Manchester City and how it feels to give Chelsea a lifeline back into the WSL title race, then there is in-depth discussion about the futures of Vivianne Miedema and Stina Blackstenius, whose current contracts expire in the summer. Tim and Aidan then talk about the other profiles of player Arsenal might need this summer, especially given their goal scoring record which has been far inferior to Chelsea and Manchester City this season. They discuss whether 25 players is too many for a season and the consistent rotation of the number 10 position and whether it needs greater clarity.You can follow Aidan on Twitter @BeltransMole and Tim @StillmanatorGet extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog

    01:32:43
    In this episode we look back on the 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon. The Gunners produced a dominant first half, but it was a late first half penalty that gave us the lead at the break. We analyse the key moments of the opening 45, from the potential red card to the missed chances to the award of the spot kick. Then we look at a second half where Leandro Trossard scored again, but was there a touch of good fortune about Bournemouth's disallowed goal which would have made the game more uncomfortable? Declan Rice's performance merited a goal and he got it late on, and we also answer listener questions about whether he should be used as an 8 more than a 6, potential changes to the coaching staff, the Gabriel Jesus story James wrote last week, some #ANGEOUT, and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
  • Episode 781 - Antics

    01:13:08
    In this episode I'm joined by Sam Dean to chat about Ben White and the focus on his 'antics' from corners. Why the focus now? Will it force him and Arsenal to modify behaviour from set-pieces? And does it obscure discussion of his outstanding quality and consistency as a footballer? We also talk about Gabriel Jesus amid reports around his future, Oleksandr Zinchenko perhaps being more 'at risk' of a departure, the new contract offered to Jorginho and what that means for the summer, as well as chat about proposed new financial rules in the Premier League, games being held in the US, and lots more – including details of our donation to UNICEF.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 we look back on the eventful 3-2 win in the North London derby on Sunday. Despite not being at our best, we were 3-0 up at the break, and we discuss the goals we scored, and how we exploited the lack of opposition preparation and awareness – particularly from set-pieces. Ben White and Declan Rice had some fun in that regard. We also chat about the chances they had up the other end, including a disallowed goal, before moving onto the second half. There's focus on David Raya's mistake and the reaction to it from him and his teammates, conceding the late penalty and how it made for an awful, nerve-wracking last 10 minutes, but underlying it all is the fact we won, took three points, and Spurs have crap trumpets. Then there are listener questions about Kai Havertz, Bukayo Saka's reaction to abuse from the stands, Thomas Partey's future and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog – this month we're donating every penny of our Patreon revenue to UNICEF, so you get great content and help kids all around the world too.
