    01:24:07
    In this episode we look back at the impressive 4-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday evening. We chat about how the Gunners took the game by the scruff of the neck from the very start, suffocating the visitors and not allowing them to play their game at all. We chat about the goals we scored in the first half and the second, Kai Havertz, Bukayo Saka, and how Arsenal continue to stamp their title credentials on the Premier League. Then we answer listener questions about Jakub Kiwior, potential ins and outs during the summer, Ben White being Ben White, chasing the leading pack as opposed to topping the table, and loads more, including some #pochout.Here's the link for the Arseblog WhatsApp channel: https://whatsapp.com/channel/0029VaLBHpIJJhzQXcOPvW0pGet extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
  • Episode 772 - Port-Oh ...

    54:09
    In this episode I'm joined by Phil Costa to discuss Arsenal's 1-0 defeat to Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday evening. We chat about how different Europe and the Premier League can be, and the need for Mikel Arteta's side to learn quickly from last night's game. We analyse the performance, where and why Arsenal struggled, and how Porto negated our strengths with their, at times, extremely cynical game-plan. There's discussion of the late goal we conceded that came from a catalogue of minor errors, what we can take from this performance in order to turn things around in the second leg, and lots more.Here's the link for the Arseblog WhatsApp channel: https://whatsapp.com/channel/0029VaLBHpIJJhzQXcOPvW0pFollow Phil @_philcostaGet extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog
