On this week's show I'm joined by guest host JB (@gunnerpunner) to pore over another poor day away from home after Arsenal went down 2-1 to Bournemouth on Sunday. Lack of firepower and defensive frailties were exposed, but how much of what's wrong stems from our midfield. We discuss the absence of Alexis Sanchez, the possibility of selling him to Man Utd and what that means for us as a club. We then answer questions about Arsene Wenger, whether signings like Aubameyang and Malcom can make any difference, our predictions for the rest of the season and much more.
Episode 456 - There's a brand new dance
In a week when Hector Bellerin's sartorial choices made as many headlines as anything else, I'm joined by the Man from East Lower (@eastlower) to discuss our midweek clash with Chelsea, the manager's decision to leave Alexis Sanchez on the bench, and another one of those performances which shows we can defend when we put our minds to it. We also chat about Alex Iwobi, the departure of Francis Coquelin, why Theo Walcott should also be sold, whether Arsene Wenger should go in the summer and beyond. There's a whack of the usual waffle, and more.
Arsecast Extra Episode 208 - 08.01.2018
On this week's show I'm joined by guest host Elliot Smith @YankeeGunner, to discuss the 4-2 defeat to Nottingham Forest and the third round exit from the FA Cup. We chat about team selection, the manager's big gamble when it came to the bench, Per Mertesacker's damning post-match comments, and yet another day when our defensive weaknesses were highlighted. The future of Arsene Wenger comes up in our questions section, as does the future direction of the club itself, the rebuilding job ahead, how we manage our young players, and loads more. There's plenty to get your ears into .
Episode 455 - No case for the defence
On this week's show I chat with Dan Levy about the Chelsea game in midweek, our obvious defensive issues and the manager's inability to solve them, what kind of impact the January transfer window might have, and how the Europa League is growing increasingly important in our list of priorities. Then, ahead of Sunday's FA Cup third round clash with Nottingham Forest, I talk to journalist and Forest fan Nick Miller about their season, having sacked their manager last week, what we can expect from them, and some Arsene Wenger/referees chat too.
Arsecast Extra Episode 207 - 01.01.2018
On this first Arsecast Extra of 2018, I'm joined by Andrew Allen to discuss the 1-1 draw with West Brom on New Year's Eve, the Arsenal performance, and of course the impact that referee Mike Dean had on proceedings. We chat about his terrible decision to award the home side a penalty, refereeing in general, and whether teams have to able to cope with that over the course of the season. There's also Wenger's comments about scheduling, and yet another poor day away, before we answer questions about our central defenders, Laurent Koscielny, Theo Walcott's uncertain future, the transfer window, a time machine trip down memory lane and more.
