In today's episode we steady ourselves after that incredible power shift that ... oh, wait, that didn't happen. We discuss the very enjoyable 2-0 win over Sp*rs on Saturday, what the team can gain from the win and the performance, the outstanding back three providing the platform for victory, and the need to replicate this kind of display – all the while remembering to enjoy it. We then answer questions about cups of tea, the whole Tea-gate incident and the media reaction to it, the upcoming appointment of a new head of scouting, the reaction to the Francis Coquelin substitution and lots more besides.
Episode 449 - What a magic
On this week's show I'm joined by the one and only Ian Wright to discuss the upcoming North London derby against the old enemy. Ian chats about his feelings ahead of the game, the need for the players to make sure the unthinkable doesn't happen, Alexandre Lacazette, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, and more. Then I chat about the game some more with Clive Palmer, what will the manager's approach be, and what kind of team is he going to pick? There's also a chance to win one of five copies of Jens Lehmann's new book 'The madness is on the pitch', some exclusive extracts from it, and lots of the usual waffle.
Arsecast Extra Episode 200 - 13.11.2017
Today's episode is the 200th Arsecast Extra, and thankfully for us it's come at a time when there's so much to discuss from an Arsenal point of view and not slap bang in the middle of the lulliest Interlull of all time. Still, we manage to chat about all the exciting international football that's been going on, which players from the 89 title winning side we'd have in today's Arsenal team, there's some North London derby chat, and quite a bit about food including: pancakes, bacon, cheese, eggplants, lasagne and lots more.
Episode 448 - Dara Ó Briain
In this week's show I chat with Dara Ó Briain, comedian, TV ever-present, science bloke, hat wearer, and, of course, Arsenal fan. He's in Dublin with his new show, so we sat down in my studio for an Interlull chat which took in airport hassles, stolen bikes, a Trondheim lap-dancing club, noisy crowds, his upcoming tour of Leeds, some Arsenal, some Eddie, and lots more.
Arsecast Extra Episode 199 - 07.11.2017
On this week's show, we look back at the 3-1 defeat to Man City which took place in the distant jet-lagged past. From team selection and a lack of Lacazette, to contentious issues like the penalty and the offside, it's all in there, along with our outlook for the team after 11 games of the season. We chat about the manager, the importance of the Sp*rs game after the Interlull, Santi Cazorla's injury and possible return, why Lee Dixon is actually Kenny Rogers, and lots lots more besides.
