Arsecast Extra Episode 201 - 20.11.2017

In today's episode we steady ourselves after that incredible power shift that ... oh, wait, that didn't happen. We discuss the very enjoyable 2-0 win over Sp*rs on Saturday, what the team can gain from the win and the performance, the outstanding back three providing the platform for victory, and the need to replicate this kind of display – all the while remembering to enjoy it. We then answer questions about cups of tea, the whole Tea-gate incident and the media reaction to it, the upcoming...

Episode 449 - What a magic

On this week's show I'm joined by the one and only Ian Wright to discuss the upcoming North London derby against the old enemy. Ian chats about his feelings ahead of the game, the need for the players to make sure the unthinkable doesn't happen, Alexandre Lacazette, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, and more. Then I chat about the game some more with Clive Palmer, what will the manager's approach be, and what kind of team is he going to pick? There's also a chance to win one of five copies of...

Arsecast Extra Episode 200 - 13.11.2017

Today's episode is the 200th Arsecast Extra, and thankfully for us it's come at a time when there's so much to discuss from an Arsenal point of view and not slap bang in the middle of the lulliest Interlull of all time. Still, we manage to chat about all the exciting international football that's been going on, which players from the 89 title winning side we'd have in today's Arsenal team, there's some North London derby chat, and quite a bit about food including: pancakes, bacon, cheese,...

Episode 448 - Dara Ó Briain

In this week's show I chat with Dara Ó Briain, comedian, TV ever-present, science bloke, hat wearer, and, of course, Arsenal fan. He's in Dublin with his new show, so we sat down in my studio for an Interlull chat which took in airport hassles, stolen bikes, a Trondheim lap-dancing club, noisy crowds, his upcoming tour of Leeds, some Arsenal, some Eddie, and lots more.

Arsecast Extra Episode 199 - 07.11.2017

On this week's show, we look back at the 3-1 defeat to Man City which took place in the distant jet-lagged past. From team selection and a lack of Lacazette, to contentious issues like the penalty and the offside, it's all in there, along with our outlook for the team after 11 games of the season. We chat about the manager, the importance of the Sp*rs game after the Interlull, Santi Cazorla's injury and possible return, why Lee Dixon is actually Kenny Rogers, and lots lots more besides.

Episode 447 - Socrates

In this week's show I chat with the brilliant David Squires about his cartooning, Jose Mourinho's in or out bollocks, difficult drawings, and his new book The Illustrated History of Football - Hall of Fame, which is tremendous fun. We met in Sydney this afternoon, sat down in a quiet place which soon became not that quiet so we found somewhere quieter and then went for a beer.

Episode 446 - Euro Pop

On this week's show, recorded just moments after the 1-0 win over Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League, I chat with Tim Stillman about the game, the team selection, the performance, Oliver Giroud's incredible goal, Jack Wilshere's stand-out display, which youngsters caught the eye, and also look ahead to Everton at the weekend. To get some perspective on that game, I also speak with ESPN FC's Everton correspondent Luke O'Farrell who gives us his view on what are troubled times at...

Arsecast Extra Episode 196 - 16.10.2017

The performance, the team, the tactics, and the all too familiar feeling of Arsenal throwing away a game they should have won. We chat about the manager, why something has to change at the club but why nothing probably will, the part Kroenke and Gazidis play in this current Arsenal – before we answer questions about Granit Xhaka, the lack of goals from midfield, what are the values of Arsenal and...

Episode 445 -'89'

On this week's show I chat with Amy Lawrence about the upcoming documentary '89' which, unsurprisingly, tells the epic story of Arsenal's title win in the 88-89 season. Needing to go to Anfield and win by two clear goals, Michael Thomas's last gasp winner has become an unforgettable piece of Arsenal history. Amy and I chat about the season itself, the making of the film, and more, before chatting more generally about the pressures football puts on players and fans these days – in...

Episode 444 - Rich

It may be an Interlull but we've still got a podcast for you today, and in the wake of Arsenal's financial results being released last week, I chat with Kieron O'Connor (@SwissRamble), about a healthy profit, cash in the bank, how we still lag behind the others in terms of commercial revenue, the challenges of improving that in a season when we're in the Europa League, potential transfer funds and lots more. We also touch on the current situation involving Stan Kroenke and Alisher Usmanov,...

On this week's show, after we deal with lawnmower problems, we discuss the 2-0 win over Brighton, goals for Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi, a sizzling assist from Alexis, another clean sheet, and a team which, while not currently scintillating, is heading in the right direction – up the table.

Two goals for Theo Walcott, a first goal for Rob Holding, and Olivier Giroud becomes a centurion with his 100th Arsenal strike.

Episode 442 - The broken men

In this week's show I do my best to keep discussion of Doncaster and West Brom to an absolute minimum, so instead I talk to Rory Smith of the New York Times about a very interesting piece he wrote about Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan, and his recovery from an anterior cruciate ligament injury. As Arsenal fans we have plenty of experience of injuries, and we expand the conversation to talk about players who are injured, either long-term or with frequency, and what they have to go through...

Arsecast Extra Episode 192 - 18.09.2017

The 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge was a big improvement on the last away day at Anfield, but is it something to get excited about or more a case of lowered expectations? We discuss that, the team selection, the performance, the chances we had to win the game, and the things that pleased us most about the Arsenal display on Sunday. We then answer listener questions about the absence of Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi's role in the back three, a positive display for Alex Iwobi, some crisp related...
