Episode 731 - Saka Signs
In 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 - 22.05.2023
In 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
