It's a post-Europa League show in which we discuss the 3-0 win over BATE Borisov who hopefully we never ever have to play again. We chat corners, the return of Mesut Ozil to the starting line-up and the impact he had, and what lies ahead in this European competition with the draw for the next round taking place tomorrow. Then there are questions about the team and formation for this weekend's game against Southampton, Denis Suarez, the emotion of football, and lots more.
The Arsenal Women Arsecast #1 - The Conti Cup Final
In this first episode: Arsenal Women will bid to win the WSL Continental Tyres Cup for the 6th time in 8 seasons when they face Manchester City in the final at Bramall Lane on Saturday. This is a repeat of last year’s final, which the Gunners won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Vivianne Miedema. Our Arsenal Women correspondent Tim Stillman looks ahead to that game with the help of Arsenal centre half Leah Williamson. Leah talks about Arsenal Women being ‘feared and respected’ again, Vivianne Miedema, the threat that City pose and she contemplates her 7th cup final as an Arsenal player before her 22nd birthday. Leah also talks about growing up as an Arsenal fan, interrupting a family holiday in Cornwall when she was 9 so that she could be Arsenal’s mascot and about Petr Cech taking the women’s team out to dinner on Monday night. Tim also provides a preview to give a bit of context and there is full information on how you can watch the game on Saturday at 12.15pm.
Arsecast Extra Episode 271 - 18.02.2019
After a busy weekend revolving around the Mesut Ozil Tweet and 'discussions' that it sparked, we discuss the German and the ongoing situation at the club. Ultimately, it's unhealthy for Arsenal but what's behind it and what can be done to find a solution that benefits the team? We chat about him, Unai Emery, Arsenal's role in it all, and hope for the kind of outcome that will pay dividends on the pitch as we chase a top four finish and the Europa League. Then there are questions about selling a star player (NOT OZIL!) this summer, whether we're in a better position now compared to a year ago, potential candidates for the captaincy, a cling-film conundrum and lots more.
Episode 515 - Worries
In this episode I chat to Tim Stillman about our 1-0 defeat to BATE Borisov in the Europa League. Arsenal were beaten by a team who haven't played in two months, Unai Emery's team selection was conservative and his changes seemed to cause confusion more than anything else. Do the players understand what he wants from them, and are the signs from their performances a cause for concern beyond the poor results in recent weeks? We chat Kolasinac, Lacazette, Ozil, Arsenal austerity, Aaron Ramsey's status as he's about to depart and lots more, plus a smidgeon of the usual waffle.
Arsecast Extra Episode 270 - 10.02.2019
On this week's show we look back at the 2-1 win over Huddersfield, are we worrying too much about style if the result is right? We touch on the performance, the goals we scored, the one we inevitably conceded, the team selection based on who Unai Emery had available to him, and we have to mention the Chelsea defeat which moved us up into 5th. There's some fun with the #sarriout hashtag, then serious questions about the abuse leveled at Alex Iwobi and Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Mavropanos being left out of the Europa League squad, how to approach the BATE Borisov game on Thursday, an either/or about our strikers, and more.
