Episode 650 - Handbrake heartache

In this episode I'm joined by Andrew Allen and Ryan Hunn to discuss Arsenal in the wake of the Crystal Palace game. We chat about issues of identity and football style, confusion over the way Mikel Arteta wants his team to play, the dreaded handbrake and what exactly that means, our issues with possession feeding into other problems we have in terms of creativity and goalscoring, why we don't press – especially this season, and lots more, including some things to be positive about! We also have the winners of our SuperClub competition from last week - [superclubgame.com] (https://superclubgame.com/) Follow Andrew [@aallensport] (https://twitter.com/@aallensport) : Follow Ryan [@ryanhunn] (https://twitter.com/ryanhunn) If you want to become an Arseblog Member on Patreon, you can sign up at [patreon.com/arseblog] (https://patreon.com/arseblog) for just €5 per month.

Arsecast Extra Episode 438 - 19.10.2021

In this episode we look back at the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday night. We chat about the bright start but the inability to build on it, the goals we conceded, Arsenal's passive off-the-ball approach, continued concerns about the team's lack of attacking productivity, the late equaliser which rescued a point against Patrick Vieira's team, and the abysmal refereeing decision when James McArthur only got a yellow card for a brutal foul on Bukayo Saka. Then there are listener questions about Arsenal as a possession side, Thomas Partey and how midfield might look in January when he goes to the AFCON, Martin Odegaard's second poor performance in a row, movement and passing, officiating the officials, Alexandre Lacazette, sprucing up the Emirates and lots more.

Arsecast Extra Episode 437 - 11.10.2021

In this Interlull episode we begin by talking about a couple of goalscoring Gooners, before the conversation switches to the inevitable: the Newcastle takeover. We chat about what it might mean for Arsenal, the wider implications for the competitiveness of the Premier League, the 'morality' of it, the requirement for cognitive dissonance, and the reaction of fans to this kind of deal and ownership. There are some more questions about it in part two, as well as ones about the load being placed on players these days after comments from Thibaut Courtois, Gabriel Martinelli, goalkeepers, Arsenal James Bond, and lots more.

Episode 648 - Overtake

In this episode I chat to Clive Palmer about the Saudi led takeover of Newcastle, the way football has been run to get to this point, whether anything can change at this point, the financial influence of the game, a soon-to-be new competitor for Arsenal to deal with, and more, before we chat about the team, Mikel Arteta, scoring more goals and the upcoming post-Interlull games. Then, to talk about his new book 'Arsenal for Everyone', it's Dave Seager, who explains the motivation for the book, the backing he got from the club, and some of the stories of fans who experience football differently.

Arsecast Extra Episode 436 - 04.10.2021

In this episode we look back at the 0-0 draw with Brighton on Saturday, in which too many of our key players didn't perform at the level required. We talk about the result in isolation, and in the context of the last four games, some positives at the back with Gabriel, Ben White and Aaron Ramsdale, Emile Smith Rowe as our best player, and at least keeping a clean sheet and taking a point after an anti-climactic performance. Then there are listener questions about the key area we need to see improvement in, Nicolas Pepe, Kieran Tierney, Arsene Wenger's backing for a World Cup every two years, and lots more.

The Arsenal Women Arsecast Episode 31: Barcelona preview pod

Welcome to a brand new episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, the number one podcast about Arsenal Women. Arsenal Women play away at defending European champions Barcelona in the first game of the Champions League group stages on Tuesday evening. Tim and resident Barcelona expert Alex Ibaceta get together to preview the game, Alex talks about Barca's many strengths, key players, some of their weaknesses and considers whether Arsenal have any chance of escaping with any kind of result. The panel also discuss why Barcelona's women's team are so formidable while their men's team flounders- a concept not unfamiliar to Arsenal fans in fairness. The game, like all of Arsenal's Champions League games, is being screened live on DAZN's YouTube channel free of charge with no paid subscription required.

Episode 647 - Still a great day

In this episode I'm joined by Nick Ames of The Guardian to discuss the impact of Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka in the North London derby; what Mikel Arteta might do in the enforced injury absence of Granit Xhaka, his options, and how there's now a heavy onus on Thomas Partey in that area of the pitch; plus some chat about the manager after he's enjoyed some better days of late. Then I chat to Tim Stillman about Arsenal Women and their incredible start to the season under new head coach Jonas Eidevall, how a behind the scenes review looks to have paid dividends, the Champions League, competition and rotation, the chances of extending some key contracts, and lots more.

Arsecast Extra Episode 435 - 27.09.2021

James is is back from his holidays on what is a very goodly morning following the 3-1 win in the North London derby. There's a flavour of the atmosphere inside the Emirates, the energy that transmitted around the ground, a brilliant first half performance with some outstanding individual contributions, a huge win for Mikel Arteta, a goal and an assist each for Smith Rowe and Saka, and pretty much everyone gets a mention for the way we put the old enemy to the sword. We then answer listener questions about Aaron Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, a revitalised Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the potential for a winning run, the summer recruitment paying dividends, and lots more, including a brand new jingle to celebrate the derby win.

Episode 646 - Arsenal not found

Only those inside the Emirates on Wednesday night got to see Arsenal's 3-0 win over AFC Wimbledon in full, because there was no live TV coverage anywhere. The Athletic's Art de Roche was one of them, and he joins me to talk about the game, the team selection, Thomas Partey playing a part, Eddie Nketiah, Flo Balogun and young players. Then, with the North London derby on the horizon, I chat with Phil Costa about the slight bit of momentum Arsenal have built in the last couple of weeks, Mikel Arteta's more exciting – or at least interesting – line-ups, the connection between the team and the fans as a positive ahead of the Sp*rs game, Aaron Ramsdale and more.

Arsecast Extra Episode 434 - 20.09.2021

James is away on holidays so for this episode I'm joined by Tayo Popoola ... who is also on holidays, to discuss our hard-fought 1-0 win over Burnley on Saturday. We talk about the defensive commitment the team showed, stand-out players like Aaron Ramsdale and Gabriel, dealing with the physical aspect of the game, some promising signs despite the fact the team didn't really click from an attacking perspective, and a moment of real quality from Martin Odegaard to score the only goal of the game. We then answer listener questions about the return of Granit Xhaka, Bukayo Saka's recent form, whether new signings have demonstrated greater character, Ben White ... sorry ... £50 Ben White to give him his full title, and lots more, including Martin Keown's big butt theory and the old skippidydip.

Episode 645 - Refereeing fluidity

On this week's show I'm joined by Rory Smith of the New York Times to talk about the new edict to referees from on high for them to 'let it flow'. Is this going to lead to a rise in injuries as players push the boundaries, realising they may not get the kind of punishment they did before. We talk about the underlying culture of physicality in English football, how this is not a new thing – something Arsenal fans know only too well – and the way that refereeing and officiating appears to have a make it up as you go along element to it. We also chat about the proposal to make the World Cup biennial. After that it's some quick Arsenal chat with Andrew Allen as we face a non-European season, and how we have to make that 'advantage' count, particularly for games like the weekend trip to Burnley.

Arsecast Extra Episode 433 - 13.09.2021

At long last it's a Goodly Morning as James and I discuss the 1-0 win over Norwich at the Emirates on Saturday. It wasn't perfect, but there were things to like about the performance and in particular a very fresh feeling team selection with five of the six summer signings starting. We chat about how we felt at the time versus how we feel now, the goal we scored, individual performances, the chances we missed to make the game more comfortable, and why the game ebbed and flowed at times. Then there are listener questions about Mikel Arteta and press conference comportment, what the selection of Aaron Ramsdale over Bernd Leno means for the German, end product from Martin Odegaard, a potential shift to a 433, and lots more – including leaf-blowing man and a snoring dog.
