The Arsenal Women Arsecast Episode 29: Oh Tobin a-Gooner!

This episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast is all about the signing of USWNT star Tobin Heath. First of all, Tim talks to Gunners boss Jonas Eidevall about the signing, how it came about and how Heath fits into a squad already replete with attacking talent. Then Tim talks to co-founder and writer on Equalizer Soccer, Jeff Kassouf (@JeffKassouf) / Twitter, who broke the story last week that Tobin was looking to stay in England and play Champions League football. Tim and Jeff talk about the move, Heath's international career past and present and what Arsenal fans can expect from the American winger.

We also chat about some potential departures, what we need to see from Fabio Vieira this season, Ethan Nwaneri and how pre-season could be very important for him, and lots more, including some US tour chatFollow Clive @clivepafcGet extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog

We chat about the goal England conceded, the contentious penalty award which provided the equaliser, the second half in which fatigue clearly played a part for both sides, and how an injection of energy was so important.
