    Episode 591 - Free Willy

    Episode 591 - Free Willy

    On this week's show I'm joined by Clive Palmer to discuss the needs of the Arsenal squad going into this transfer window. We cover all areas - goalkeeper, defence, midfield, and attack – to try and work out what we might do, who might be vulnerable to a departure, and the kinds of players Mikel Arteta wants to bring to the club. We start though with some thoughts on the arrival of Willian who has signed a three year deal with the club after his contract at Chelsea expired. All that, and more.

    Arsecast Extra Episode 367 - 10.08.2020

    Arsecast Extra Episode 367 - 10.08.2020

    On today's show we begin by discussing what appears to be the imminent arrival of Willian on a free transfer from Chelsea, weighing up the pros and cons of his experience with his age and contract length. We then chat in some depth about the changes made to the club's scouting network, letting Francis Cagigao and many of his team go, and the way we recruit players. Is our approach sufficient in the modern game, particularly when both your scouting and analysis departments feel somewhat marginalised in the process? We also touch on the redundancies and how the players might feel, before answering questions about Wilfried Zaha, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, and the Alexandre Lacazette situation. James has a controversial Lucas Torreira opinion, and there's lots more besides.

    Episode 590 - The 55

    This week's Arsecast is a day early, but comes in response to yesterday's club statement regarding the 55 redundancies being sought. I'm joined by Philippe Auclair to discuss that, the framing of the statement as something necessary to keep team investment going, social and moral responsibility from the owners KSE, the timing of the communication, the fact our Head of Recruitment is being made redundant, how the players feel about his after being given assurances their pay cuts would save jobs, the executive structures, and lots more. We finish with a positive chat about Mikel Arteta and his impact at the end.

    Arsecast Extra Episode 366 - 03.08.2020

    On today's show we look back on our record extending 14th FA Cup, following the 2-1 win over Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday. We chat about the excitement of the occasion, from watching at home to being at the match; the way it all played out from Chelsea's opener to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's winner and beyond; our tactical approach, the game plan, some good fortune along the way, and ultimately yet another FA Cup win. After that, we discuss what it means in this crazy season to have ended with success, the job Mikel Arteta has done and the impact he's made since taking the job in December, what the future holds for the club and certain players, how European football has an impact, and we also relive some of the best/funniest moments from the day along with LOTS more in this almost two hour long episode.


    Also, a big thanks to all our listeners for being here throughout this long, trying season, and we're so happy we've been able to end it on a high note for everyone!

    Arsecast Extra Episode 365 - 31.07.2020

    It's a special FA Cup final Arsecast Extra, in which James and I chat about how we're feeling ahead of game, whether it's more anxiety or excitement, before we discuss our team selection and how Mikel Arteta might set up his team and approach the game. Then we're joined by the legend that is Ian Wright to talk all about the final, his thoughts on the team, our strengths and how we should play, what it's like to experience the occasion as a player and lots more. And as usual we take listener questions which are, for the most part, centred around tomorrow's big game at Wembley.

    Arsecast Extra Episode 364 - 27.07.2020

    The Premier League season is over and we look back on the final day victory over Watford, in what was a fairly meaningless game for us. There's discussion of Kieran Tierney's first Arsenal goal, David Luiz conceding another penalty and setting a record in the process, and we reflect on an 8th placed finish overall. We're glad to see the back of the season, and lessons have to be learned, but we try to end part 1 with some positives to take from this campaign. In part 2 we answer listener questions about our central defensive options and what on earth we can do about them. We pick our FA Cup final team, do some Aubameyang/Arsenal role play over his future, Ozil and his likely absence from Wembley, how to stop Olivier Giroud and loads more.

Hands down the best Arsenal podcast available.

Magnificent!

The number 1 podcast relating to The Arsenal!

Best of the best.

Jamon Ruffles, a calamitous co-host and a deep, sultry Irish growl - all of which help me deal with the pain and glory of being an Arsenal supporter.
