On this week's show I'm joined by Amy Lawrence to discuss our top four chances after the defeats to Wolves and Crystal Palace. I'm a bit down but Amy is more positive as there's still a lot to play for this season – not least a European trophy. We discuss that, how the club is being run, and lots more, before I talk to Tim Stillman about the Arsenal Women who can win the title this weekend and crown a fantastic campaign. We also chat about the Wolves game, away form, Leicester and more.
The Arsenal Women Arsecast Episode 3 - Quadruple
In 2006-07, Arsenal Ladies achieved a unique quadruple- winning the Premier League, FA Cup, Premier League Cup and the European Cup. They remain the only British side in the women’s game to have won Europe’s top prize. In this episode we speak with then Gunners captain Faye White, who missed most of the season with a cruciate ligament injury. We talk to Faye about her mixed emotions watching an incredible season unfold from the treatment table. We also speak to Gunners legend and striker Kelly Smith, who returned to the club from the US after battling depression and alcoholism. Kelly enjoyed an excellent, injury free season- but missed both legs of the European Cup Final in controversial circumstances. Kelly talks candidly about her frustration with rough treatment from opponents and how that frustration built to cost her participation in the game of her life. Relive this historic season through the eyes of Arsenal Ladies’ most successful ever captain and all-time greatest player.

Yesterday's 3-2 defeat to Crystal Palace was a big disappointment, and we try to make sense of it. From Unai Emery's team selection and formation, to the nightmare performance of Shkodran Mustafi, there's plenty to discuss. The German's role is front and centre, but did the manager take the visitors for granted, and leave himself short of options because he had to change so much at half-time. What now for our top four chances, we can qualify for the Champions League via our Premier League finish. How to approach Wednesday's game against Wolves, can we rest Laurent Koscielny, the probable end of Carl Jenkinson's Arsenal career and lots more.
Episode 521 - Laca's on fire
On this week's show I'm joined by Andrew Allen to discuss the 1-0 win over Napoli which secured our passage into the Europa League semi-finals. We chat about the team selection, Alexandre Lacazette's great goal which had such a big impact, how comfortably we won over the two legs, Napoli being below par, some surprising passing stats, the Aaron Ramsey injury and lots more. Then we answer some questions from Arseblog Patreon Members, and there's a theme flaming throughout the show with a chunk of the usual waffle. Enjoy!
Arsecast Extra Episode 282 - 16.04.2019
An away win and a clean sheet are not to be scoffed at for Arsenal this season, but did we miss an opportunity to do a bit more in yesterday's 1-0 win over Watford? We discuss the game, the goal, the hilarious sending off of Troy Deeney, Unai Emery's substitutions and how they didn't exactly help, plus our inability to properly take advantage of the extra man and boost our goal difference. We also answer listener questions about Dinos Mavropanos, how to approach the Napoli game on Thursday and the possible team selection, Emery's contractual situation, and much more – in particular not being able to remember red cards given against us.
