Episode 470 - Atletico Madrid, Sanllehi and Enrique

Here's an super extra bonus Arsecast ahead of tomorrow's Europa League semi-final first leg against Atletico Madrid. I chat with Spanish based journalist Dermot Corrigan about what Arsenal can expect from the La Liga side, how they're likely to approach this game, Diego Simeone's tactics for big away fixtures, their dangermen and more, plus some insight into Arsenal's Definitely Not Director of Football, Raul Sanllehi, and his close relationship with former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique who...


Arsecast Extra Episode 226 - 23.04.2018

The 4-1 win over West Ham was enjoyable, but not the main event as we still come to terms with the news that Arsene Wenger will be leaving the club at the end of the season. We chat about the game, the team selection, the performance, the goals and all that, but this is an episode that deals heavily with the manager. We chat about his very interesting post-game press conference, his remarks about the values of the club, fans, what his future might hold, and then there are questions about...


Episode 469 - Arsene calls it quits

Two podcasts in one day, but this is no ordinary day. Earlier, Arsene Wenger announced his intention to leave the club at the end of the season, and it's been an emotional rollercoaster since. First, I talk to James from Gunnerblog about his reaction to it, as well as his thoughts on the strange Ivan Gazidis press conference that took place this evening. Then, in a round table discussion, I chat about the whole situation with Andrew Allen, Goonerholic and The Man from East Lower - from the...


Episode 468 - Tickets, Europe, Stuff and Things

After a slow Arsenal news week, this episode begins with Daniel Storey of Football 365, and we look back on the Premier League season as a whole after Man City have been crowned champions. We chat about the quality in the league this season, safe-standing, as well as Arsene Wenger, his future and how the Europa League looms over what remains of this campaign. Then Tim Stillman joins me to discuss the manager's comments about attendances which he says are no big concern (Arsene, not Tim),...


Arsecast Extra Episode 225 - 16.04.2018

On this week's show we look back at the 2-1 defeat to Newcastle which simply adds to our abysmal away record, chat about our defending, or lack of it, more mistakes by Shkodran Mustafi who is enduring a terrible time at the moment, the deployment of Pierre-Emerick Aubamayang as a winger, and how the loss was not any kind of a surprise at all. We then answer questions about Rafa Benitez as a possible Wenger replacement, the importance of the Europa League, which players have made progress...


Episode 467 - The Nenny

On this week's show I chat to ESPN's Arsenal correspondent Mattias Karen about Arsenal's 2-2 draw against CSKA Moscow which helped ensure qualification for the semi-finals of the Europa League. We chat about the Gunners making life difficult for themselves, but also an ability to respond to those situations. As Mohamed Elneny shines, Jack Wilshere struggles; Danny Welbeck has found some form, and we discuss the balancing act Arsene Wenger has now that Europe has become this season's number...


Arsecast Extra Episode 224 - 09.04.2018

It's another goodly morning as we discuss the 3-2 win over Southampton yesterday, the contributions of both Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi who had very positive days, the 'defending' of Shkodran Mustafi after another terrible error, Jack Wilshere's cameo, and the red card for Mohamed Elneny. We then answer listener questions about Welbeck's future at the club, the most frustrating Arsenal sendings off of all time – which takes us down a nostalgic road for a bit, our turnaround in form, which...


Arsecast Extra Episode 223 - 06.04.2018

On this extra Arsecast Extra we discuss the very enjoyable 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow in the Europa League, in particular the incredible goal scored by Aaron Ramsey. It wasn't improvisation, it was engineering, and we chat about that, his combinations with Mesut Ozil, a much for Arsenal-esque attacking performance the position it puts us in ahead of the second leg. Then we answer questions about Granit Xhaka, Ramsey's contract and the hopes of him signing a new one, Cech v Ospina in the...


Arsecast Extra Episode 222 - 02.04.2018

Football is back and we enjoy beating Stoke if not everything that came before. We chat about the performance, the result, why criticism of Aubameyang for giving the penalty to Lacazette is stupid and, of course, we laugh at Stoke. Then we answer listener questions about the two forwards playing in the team at the same time, the importance of Aaron Ramsey and his contract situation, the kind of football Arsene Wenger is serving up, Ozil and Bellerin having words on the pitch, a potential...


Episode 466 - The Never Ending Story

On this week's show I chat to Rory Smith of the New York Times about Jack Wilshere, his England situation, and how his contract impasse at Arsenal could end up costing the club in the long run. We also discuss the Europa League, whether Arsene Wenger's future is dependent on it, the power shift going on behind the scenes with Ivan Gazidis, Sven Mislintat and Raul Sanllehi, and more. There's some of the usual waffle, a bit of Holy God FM, and some deep thoughts about the moon. Sort of.


Arsecast Extra Episode 221

It's the Interlull so we muddle through with a podcast touching on some of the international action, Arsene Wenger and his future tied to how far we go in the Europa League, Thomas Tuchel, Jack Wilshere's situation as injury strikes again, and then questions about the World Cup, the development of young players with the loan system and the current football culture, playing two strikers, Cesc Fabregas and more, as well as exciting news about the Gunnerblog v Arseblog FIFA 18 showdown.


Episode 465 - The phone-y one

There wasn't a lot going on this week because of the Interlull, leaving us short of Arsenal stuff to talk about, so last night I did a phone-in show, taking calls and chatting to listeners about various things, including the Jack Wilshere situation, Arsene Wenger and his future, the ownership – including a story about Alisher Usmanov's gates, getting a new goalkeeper for next season, our Europa League chances, and lots more.


Arsecast Extra Episode 220 - 19.03.2018

There's not a lot going on in the Arsenal world right now, but that's never stopped us producing a podcast before. There's football chatter, interspersed with in-depth movie reviews, kebab talk, footballers birthdays, Mourinho's meltdown, and the Europa League draw, before we answer listener questions about Stoke getting relegated, new careers, how to cope with the Interlull, clocks, young players, a FIFA pledge, the one thing we'd rid football of if given the chance, and lots more.


Arsecast Extra Episode 219 - 16.03.2018

Arsenal are through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League after a 5-1 aggregate win, and a 3-1 victory in the second leg. We discuss the convincing qualification in the context of our recent form, as well as the absurd furore surrounding Danny Welbeck and the penalty incident which has sparked some ridiculous coverage in the press. We chat about diving in general, the mental gymnastics of being a fan on either side of that debate, and enjoy what has been a good week for the club....


Arsecast Extra Episode 218 - 12.03.2018

Two wins in a week, Mr Arse Ambassador, with these results you are really spoiling us. James and I get tucked into the Watford win, the deliciousness of Petr Cech's penalty save from Troy Deeney, and why the striker deserved every bit of stick he got. We look at the performances of Elneny and Xhaka, the combination between Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan, Ainsley Maitland-Niles at right back, before looking ahead to Milan on Thursday. We then answer listener questions about Ivan and Raul at the...


Episode 464 - Sometimes maybe good

On this week's show we enjoy a long overdue win and with me to discuss the 2-0 Europa League triumph over AC Milan is Paolo Bandini. We chat about a much improved Arsenal performance, perhaps predicated on the fact Europe is the be all and end all, Milan's setup and approach suiting us, a solid midfield and what this could do for us going forward and into the next leg. Then I'm joined by Kevin Witcher, editor of The Gooner fanzine, to talk about fanzine culture, the history of the...


Arsecast Extra Episode 217 - 05.03.2018

On this week's show we consider the 2-1 away defeat to Brighton, the lack of performance from the players and the manager's inability to turn things around quickly enough. All the while there's silence from the board who have also gone into hiding again, and why the people with responsibility need to act. We then answer listener questions about giving more playing time to young players in the Premier League, what hope do Arsenal have when they face Milan on Thursday, Laurent Koscielny, we...


Episode 463 - Itchy and Scratchy

On this week's show I chat with a very cold Andrew Allen immediately after the 3-0 defeat to Man City on Thursday night and discuss what was a strange night at the Emirates, and another disappointing result. Then I'm joined by Philippe Auclair to chat about the two games against Man City, the situation with the players and the manager and how there appears to be resignation on both sides, the empty seats, the role of the board in everything that's going on, and potential candidates to...

Arsecast Extra Episode 216 - 26.02.2018

In this week's show we look back on a disappointing day at Wembley which saw Arsenal lose the Carabao Cup final 3-0 to Man City. We discuss the performance, individual and collective mistakes, why we couldn't get up for a final, and the big focus of this podcast is the manager. How much of what's happening is because of Arsene Wenger's future? How inevitable is change and is it possible that it could come sooner rather than later? What role do the board have in the current situation? All...
