NOTE: This an updated version, one was released previously, but with an error. Please download again if you got the earlier version.
In this episode I chat with Gabriel Clarke, one of the directors of the upcoming film – Arsene Wenger: Invincible. We talk about how the project came to pass, working with Arsene himself, the ups and downs of the story, featuring on the major achievement of his career while not shirking some of the shortcomings, the sense of regret that's evident when Arsene speaks and lots more.
Arsene Wenger: Invincible is in cinemas from 11 November, and on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download from 22 November.
Then there's Arsenal chat with Phil Costa, as we discuss Antonio Conte's appointment for that lot, the progression and growing importance of Gabriel, competition for places, and there's a chance to win copies of the latest edition of the Scouted Football handbook which has a distinct Arsenal flavour.

Arsecast Extra Episode 555 - 27.11.202301:24:31In this episode we look back on the 1-0 win over Brentford on Saturday. We discuss Arsenal's control versus cutting edge, the perception of our attack this season, the team selection and Brentford's approach, Aaron Ramsdale's horror moment and Declan Rice's incredible recovery. We obviously chat about the late winner scored by Kai Havertz, what it means for him (at last), and what it meant to take three points and go top of the table. We then have listener questions about the way Mikel Arteta deal with post-game questions about Ramsdale, Leandro Trossard in the left 8 position, reporters trying (badly) to get Thomas Frank to criticise Arsenal's celebrations, the offside rule, and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog

Episode 758 - Relationships01:01:45In this episode I'm joined by Phil Costa to look back at our 2-0 win over Sevilla in the Champions League. It was a night for the wide men as both Bukayo Saka (goal + assist) and Gabriel Martinelli (assist + torture of Juanlu) were the difference makers. We talk about Saka's relationship with Leandro Trossard, William Saliba, Jorginho, Declan Rice, the overall performance, and how well Arsenal controlled and won the game despite how many players we had sidelined through injury.

Arsecast Extra Episode 552 - 06.11.202301:32:33In this episode we discuss the contentious 1-0 defeat to Newcastle on Saturday evening. Officiating and VAR are at the fore, so there's plenty of chat about the Kai Havertz challenge, the red card that should have been awarded to Bruno Guimares, and the winning goal which should not have stood. We also talk about Arsenal's performance on the day, which lacked attacking threat but which also basically negated Newcastle as an attacking force. After that we talk about Mikel Arteta's reaction, and there are questions about whether that and the club statement might have a negative impact, the way VAR has changed the way the game is covered, as well as actual football stuff including Oleksandr Zinchenko, Ben White, Bukayo Saka, signing a winger, and lots more.EXCLUSIVE NordVPN Deal ➼ https://nordvpn.com/arseblog Try it risk-free now with a 30-day money-back guarantee!Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
