Episode 442 - The broken men
In this week's show I do my best to keep discussion of Doncaster and West Brom to an absolute minimum, so instead I talk to Rory Smith of the New York Times about a very interesting piece he wrote about Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan, and his recovery from an anterior cruciate ligament injury. As Arsenal fans we have plenty of experience of injuries, and we expand the conversation to talk about players who are injured, either long-term or with frequency, and what they have to go through during their rehabilitation. Loneliness, self-doubt, pain, discomfort, and the range of opinion when it comes to how they're viewed by fans. We chat about the club's role in their recovery, the mental and physical impacts of injury and lots more.
Arsecast Extra Episode 192 - 18.09.2017
The 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge was a big improvement on the last away day at Anfield, but is it something to get excited about or more a case of lowered expectations? We discuss that, the team selection, the performance, the chances we had to win the game, and the things that pleased us most about the Arsenal display on Sunday. We then answer listener questions about the absence of Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi's role in the back three, a positive display for Alex Iwobi, some crisp related madness and lots more.
Episode 441 - Cologne-no you didn't!
On this week's show I have three guests to discuss our Europa League debut, in terms of what happened on and off the pitch. First up James from Gunnerblog gives us his press box perspective on the pre-gqme shenanigans, then I chat to Cologne based journalist Archie Rhind-Tutt about things from the German perspective, how big a game this was for them as a club, and more. After that Amy Lawrence joins me to discuss the night's events in full, the performance, the formation, and we look ahead to the Chelsea game on Sunday. There's not a lot of the usual waffle, but I blame UEFA for that.
Arsecast Extra Episode 191 - 11.09.2017
Arsenal are back and so is James, and in this episode we discuss the 3-0 win over Bournemouth at the weekend. We look at Danny Welbeck's performance, the Lacazette influence, the reception awarded to Alexis Sanchez, and what was a much more positive display overall. After that we answer listener questions about the departure of Dick Law and what it might mean for our transfer activity, how we might rotate the squad for the Europa League game this Thursday, what our options are for right wing-back, a possible return for Calum Chambers, and lots more.
Episode 440 - The transfer window is a duck
With me on this week's show, to look back at the transfer window in general, the culture of transfers and misinformation, the potential changes to it and lots more, is Daniel Storey from Football 365. We chat about the potential impact of the window closing before the season starts, how clubs will react, if it will change the way they operate, and look at Arsenal's start to the season. After that I'm joined by Michael Cox from Zonal Marking to discuss Arsenal's back three, and the potential return of the manager to a back four, something he's much more comfortable with. Who will be the winners and losers of the formation change, and how can Arsene Wenger fix that midfield issue.
