Arseblog Arsecast, The Arsenal Podcast
Episode 664 - Will he?
On this episode I'm joined first by Peter Hoest, who talks to me about the Fan's Forum meetings the club held. Who attends? How are the meetings structured? How do the club engage with the supporters and the issues raised? And we discuss the latest meeting which outlined improvements to Emirates Stadium, and negative feedback regarding the fan token issue.
Then I chat to Matt Spiro about William Saliba as we take a (more or less) halfway point of the season look at his loan spell with Marseille. We chat about his performances, strengths and weaknesses, his development during the season, his versatility, his readiness to return to Arsenal and stake a claim for a place, and lots more.

Arsecast Extra Episode 528 - 29.05.202301:45:33In this episode, we discuss the 5-0 win over Wolves on the final day of the season. We chat about the mood around the game and how it was more aligned with the good aspects of this campaign than the disappointment, before analysing some of what happened on the pitch, including two goals for Granit Xhaka, some brilliance from Bukayo Saka and more. Then there are reflections on the season as a whole, and the way the fans stayed to show their appreciation, as well as questions about the ovation received by Mikel Arteta, the fact we didn't get any red cards this season, Eddie Nketiah's contribution, more on Xhaka and his departure, a quick guess at how many signings we might make, and lots more besides.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
Episode 731 - Saka Signs01:01:53In this week's show I chat to Kaya Kaynak about Bukayo Saka signing his new contract, the fact that he has earned his big wage increase, and the message it sends when Arsenal retain their best players ahead of a summer when they want to improve the squad. We also chat about the importance of selling well this summer, the possibility that Sunday could be Granit Xhaka's final game for the club, the pursuit of Declan Rice and why dealing with other clubs being interested is a fact of life, and Mikel Arteta's interesting comments about the season and psychology.Follow Kaya @kayakaynak97Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
Arsecast Extra Episode 527 - 22.05.202301:28:57In this episode, we discuss the 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, a game which provoked very distinct reactions in each of us. We chat about Mikel Arteta's team selection and the unconventional back four, the sterility of the performance in which we had 82% possession but created almost nothing, the psychological aspects that might have been at play, the lack of impact from the bench, and what not being used probably means for Emile Smith Rowe. Then we answer listener questions about signing a striker and using Gabriel Jesus as a wide man, defensive recruitment, being linked with more Man City players, the perception of Arsenal to potential new signings, and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
Episode 730 - Looking ahead01:08:22In this week's show I chat to Amy Lawrence about the season we've had, some of the lessons Mikel Arteta will have learned about himself and his players, and the issue of squad depth and rotation. We also look ahead to the summer, whether rebuilding plans will have been accelerated by Arsenal's progress , possible departures including Granit Xhaka and Emile Smith Rowe, upcoming contract renewals, and the feelings of happiness this season has engendered.Follow Amy @amylawrence71As it's Mental Health Awareness week, I also talk to Dan Morgan from The Anfield Wrap about the work he does with James' Place which aims to help men in suicidal crisis: https://www.jamesplace.org.uk/We also give you the competition winners of the Bukayo Saka t-shirts from A Store Like 94 - https://www.astorelike94.co.ukGet extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
Arsecast Extra Episode 526 - 15.05.202301:33:10In this episode, we discuss the 3-0 defeat to Brighton on Sunday. If the first half was relatively even, the second certainly was not, and we chat about missed opportunities in the first 45 and a lack of reaction after we went behind. Mikel Arteta's substitutions come in for some scrutiny, as do his post-game comments which clearly came from a place of frustration. Was he justified? We also talk about the absence of Oleksandr Zinchenko, and the final nails going into the coffin of our title challenge, before answering listener questions about the impact of Man City's win over Everton, the need for something different up front next season, potential departures from the first team squad, fans leaving early, Bukayo Saka, William Saliba's contract, and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
