Episode 783 - The Final Day

In this episode I'm joined by Tim Stillman to chat about the idea of rivalry in the wake of Man City beating Spurs, and whether that's something managers should pay attention to. We also discuss Mikel Arteta's influence on this Arsenal team and how fans bought into his communication, in contrast to how Tottenham fans reacted to Ange Postecoglou's comments. Then we consider the final day of the season, and how we've pushed City all the way with the outside chance of still winning the league. Then Tim reflects on the Arsenal career of Vivianne Miedema who's departure was announced this week, as well as some chat about that decision, how it came to pass, and what might happen on the final day of the season.

Arsecast Extra Episode 584 - 12.05.2024

In this episode recorded not long after the game, we look back at Arsenal's 1-0 win over Man Utd at Old Trafford on Sunday. It wasn't a great performance, but Leandro Trossard's first half goal was enough for all three points and to keep the title push going until the final day. We chat about why the attacking performance was so inhibited, but there's praise for the way we defended against a United side that offered little to threaten us. Underlying it all though, was a sense of pre-game dread, and we discuss that, and the prospect of the final day, as well as answering listener questions about Spurs game against Man City on Tuesday, William Saliba, and much more.

In this episode I'm joined by Philippe Auclair to reflect on two Champions League semi-finals this week.

Then attention turns to Arsenal, and we talk about William Saliba and how our view of him as Arsenal fans is very different from many in France, Kai Havertz and his development, Martin Odegaard, some broad thoughts on the season as a whole and lots more.

Arsenal Women Arsecast Episode 82: Here comes the summer!

On this episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, Tim is joined by Arseblog News match reporter Aidan Gibson. They discuss the win over Manchester City and how it feels to give Chelsea a lifeline back into the WSL title race, then there is in-depth discussion about the futures of Vivianne Miedema and Stina Blackstenius, whose current contracts expire in the summer. Tim and Aidan then talk about the other profiles of player Arsenal might need this summer, especially given their goal scoring record which has been far inferior to Chelsea and Manchester City this season. They discuss whether 25 players is too many for a season and the consistent rotation of the number 10 position and whether it needs greater clarity.

Arsecast Extra Episode 583 - 06.05.2024

In this episode we look back on the 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon. The Gunners produced a dominant first half, but it was a late first half penalty that gave us the lead at the break. We analyse the key moments of the opening 45, from the potential red card to the missed chances to the award of the spot kick. Then we look at a second half where Leandro Trossard scored again, but was there a touch of good fortune about Bournemouth's disallowed goal which would have made the game more uncomfortable? Declan Rice's performance merited a goal and he got it late on, and we also answer listener questions about whether he should be used as an 8 more than a 6, potential changes to the coaching staff, the Gabriel Jesus story James wrote last week, some #ANGEOUT, and lots more.

Episode 781 - Antics

In this episode I'm joined by Sam Dean to chat about Ben White and the focus on his 'antics' from corners. Why the focus now? Will it force him and Arsenal to modify behaviour from set-pieces? And does it obscure discussion of his outstanding quality and consistency as a footballer? We also talk about Gabriel Jesus amid reports around his future, Oleksandr Zinchenko perhaps being more 'at risk' of a departure, the new contract offered to Jorginho and what that means for the summer, as well as chat about proposed new financial rules in the Premier League, games being held in the US, and lots more – including details of our donation to UNICEF.

Arsecast Extra Episode 582 - 29.04.2024

In this episode we look back on the eventful 3-2 win in the North London derby on Sunday. Despite not being at our best, we were 3-0 up at the break, and we discuss the goals we scored, and how we exploited the lack of opposition preparation and awareness – particularly from set-pieces. Ben White and Declan Rice had some fun in that regard. We also chat about the chances they had up the other end, including a disallowed goal, before moving onto the second half. There's focus on David Raya's mistake and the reaction to it from him and his teammates, conceding the late penalty and how it made for an awful, nerve-wracking last 10 minutes, but underlying it all is the fact we won, took three points, and Spurs have crap trumpets. Then there are listener questions about Kai Havertz, Bukayo Saka's reaction to abuse from the stands, Thomas Partey's future and lots more.

We chat about the quick opening goal which made Anne Hathaway happy, the red card Chelsea should have had, and missed chances from the Gunners. We also look at how we were more solid in the second half, with two goals from Kai Havertz and Ben White – with the former Chelsea man celebrating his strikes with gusto.

In this episode we look back on the 2-0 win at Wolves on Saturday evening which put us back on top of the Premier League. We discuss how Arsenal had to dig deep after a difficult week, but put in a performance that belied the tired legs, despite the fact we had to wait until late to seal the three points. We chat about Leandro Trossard's goal, whether Wolves should have had a red card, David Raya's excellent save, and how Mikel Arteta asked a lot of key men like Odegaard, Rice and Saka and how they delivered. Then we answer questions about goals from set-pieces, which position should be prioritised in the summer transfer window, how the manager rotates his squad (or chooses not to), and lots more – including details of our end of season live podcast event with our friends from the ArsenalVision podcast.

In this one part episode (without Qs in part 2), we look back at Arsenal's Champions League exit, going down 1-0 to Bayern Munich last night. Once again, the second half was below par and we paid the price. We examine the reasons as to why that has been an issue in our last two games, and what Mikel Arteta can do about it in terms of his squad building going forward. There's chat about fatigue and heavy legs, the players we brought on from the bench and the players who stayed on it, what we can learn from this European campaign, how this collective probably needs a smattering of individualism for big games like last night, the striker discussion, and lots more.

Arsecast Extra Episode 566 - 31.01.2024

In this episode we look back at the 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night. We start with a discussion about the difficulties of facing a low block approach, and we wonder whether fan anxiety about our ability to break down packed defences is one that will be shared by the team and the manager – especially on an evening when we did find enough to win the game, in no small part thanks to Gabriel Jesus. We chat about how we found joy, especially in the second half; conceding a late goal to add some nerves to the ending; and the heated discussion between Ben White and Oleksandr Zinchenko after the final whistle. Then we have listener questions about football terminology, players shifting positions in-game, why it is we concede so often to the opposition's first chance, Albert Sambi Lokonga, and lots more.

In this episode we look back on Saturday's 5-0 win over Crystal Palace. There's discussion of Arsenal's set-piece prowess as that dominated the first half talking points, and the balance between being good at them and reliant on them. There were three open play goals in the second half, with confidence boosts for Trossard and Martinelli, and we also chat about the performance in general and how much we can take from it against a poor Palace side. We also talk about the substitutes, in particular Emile Smith Rowe getting substantial minutes, plus questions about Gabriel Magalhaes and his impact since signing, David Raya having an important moment, set-piece signals, and lots more.

Arsecast Extra Episode 562 - 08.01.2024

In this episode we look back on the 2-0 FA Cup third round defeat to Liverpool. We analyse a first half in which Arsenal played well and did a lot right, but failed to make the most of the chances they created. It's a familiar theme, and one which came back to haunt us as late goals from the Mugsmashers condemned us to an FA Cup exit at a frustratingly early stage again. We chat about how Arsenal didn't make the most of the first half, examine the chances we could have done better with, before a much more even second half. There's discussion of substitutes and the timing of their arrivals, the goals we conceded, and the big problem that's so obvious to everyone – but is 'Buy a striker?' too simplistic a solution in January? Then we have questions about Emile Smith Rowe, defending set-pieces, xG variation, Eddie Nketiah and lots more.
