We discuss the lack of creativity, the Alexis Sanchez giveaway situation, Aaron Ramsey's injury and what it means for the team, Jack Wilshere, Giroud's late goal and our ongoing midfield issues. We then answer questions about Hector Bellerin's form, whether the January transfer window can make any real difference, formation shifts, before ending with some food...

On this week's show I chat with James from @gunnerblog about the 6-0 win over BATE Borisov, some redemption for the likes of Mathieu Debuchy and Theo Walcott, a great performance from Jack Wilshere, the manager's decision to go back to a back four, whether he might stick with that formation, and more. We also discuss all the empty seats and whether or not the club need to rethink their ticketing strategy in line with what is a new reality for the club right now. There's some Holy God FM, a...

This week's show was recorded in Dublin with James and an extra Extra guest, Andrew Allen. We look back on the weekend's game against Man United, the performance, the defensive errors, Arsenal's response, another defensive error, and ask whether there can be any positives taken from the game. We then answer questions about Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez's wastefulness, Aaron Ramsey's future, the January transfer window, goalkeepers having blinders and lots more.

On this week's show I'm joined by Philippe Auclair to discuss the 5-0 win over Huddersfield, the beauty of Arsenal's goals, and Mesut Ozil's contribution, before we move on to the recent appointments of Raul Sanllehi as 'Head of Football Relations' and Sven Mislintat as 'Head of Recruitment'. What does it mean for the future, and what does it mean for the present and how will they work with Arsene Wenger in the short-term? Then, to help preview the weekend's game against Man United, I chat...

This week we discuss yet another injury time win over Burnley, what a lovely man Lee Mason is, and how the outrage of the opposition fans was like sweet, sweet music to our ears. It pushes Arsenal into the top four, and we discuss the result, performance and what it means for our season. We then answer listener's questions about how we'll approach the midweek game with Huddersfield and if Jack Wilshere should start, whether or not we enjoy wins as much as we should, possible media bias...

11/24/2017
More
Listeners will be glad to hear that there's some, but relatively little, discussion of last night's 1-0 defeat to Cologne in the Europa League. There's only so much of that game one can relive, but I chat about it with Archie Rhind-Tutt. Then I'm joined by Daniel Storey from Football 365 to chat about teacup GIF-gate, the changing face of modern media and fandom, journalism and journalists, and lots more. I also give you the winners of last week's competition to win Jens Lehmann's book,...

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...

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...

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,...

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.

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.

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.

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.

On this week's show we look back at the disastrous 2-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday evening. 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...

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...

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.
