In this episode we look back at the very enjoyable 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Friday night, and a performance which had everything that was missing from the previous game. We discuss the changes to the line-up, the impact of Alexandre Lacazette, the dominance of the first half and how we maintained it, Thomas Partey's first Arsenal goal, the penalty, a brilliant display from Emile Smith Rowe which was capped with a goal, and just how much there was to like about what we did and how we did it. We then take listener questions about a new deal for Laca, defensive solidity, Gabriel's season so far, the team standing up for each other, Nuno Tavares, the development of the goalkeeping position and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Arsecast Extra Episode 438 - 19.10.2021
In this episode we look back at the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday night. We chat about the bright start but the inability to build on it, the goals we conceded, Arsenal's passive off-the-ball approach, continued concerns about the team's lack of attacking productivity, the late equaliser which rescued a point against Patrick Vieira's team, and the abysmal refereeing decision when James McArthur only got a yellow card for a brutal foul on Bukayo Saka. Then there are listener questions about Arsenal as a possession side, Thomas Partey and how midfield might look in January when he goes to the AFCON, Martin Odegaard's second poor performance in a row, movement and passing, officiating the officials, Alexandre Lacazette, sprucing up the Emirates and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

In this Interlull episode we begin by talking about a couple of goalscoring Gooners, before the conversation switches to the inevitable: the Newcastle takeover. We chat about what it might mean for Arsenal, the wider implications for the competitiveness of the Premier League, the 'morality' of it, the requirement for cognitive dissonance, and the reaction of fans to this kind of deal and ownership. There are some more questions about it in part two, as well as ones about the load being placed on players these days after comments from Thibaut Courtois, Gabriel Martinelli, goalkeepers, Arsenal James Bond, and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
