Here’s this week’s Arsecast Extra with myself and James from @Gunnerblog. On this week’s show we look back on a fun weekend of Premier League action for the neutral, a good win for Arsenal at Newcastle in relatively difficult circumstances, what was a good defensive performance and another 2-1 win.

Football amuses as the Interlull begins

Football, for all the ways it frustrates us, can also be really funny. Stuff happening to other teams – even if that enjoyment is fleeting, sometimes lasting only minutes or seconds – just makes you laugh. I know my brother won’t have found much funny about Steven Gerrard at Anfield

Newcastle 1-2 Arsenal: Giroud makes the difference as defence plays its part

Match report – By the numbers – Player ratings – Video I don’t know if it’s amazing or not, because social media is place which exhibits the best and worst of people, but after securing our third away win on the trot, people were complaining @ me on Twitter. Maybe

Newcastle preview + Walcott’s contract situation takes a turn

A trip to Newcastle today to try and get three more points on the board before we go into the Interlull. On paper it’s one of those we should win: we’re in great form with five wins in a row (as well as five Premier League wins in a row),

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

We have been here before, and before, and before and before and before. For the fifth season on the bounce, we have both excited and then exited Europe. Which begs the question: If one walks into the same door four times in a row, unless it is for a wager,

Early team news, away goals + Arsecast 345

Morning all, and welcome to Friday. As we play Newcastle tomorrow, the manager’s press conference took place yesterday and in terms of the team news, there really isn’t any. Tomas Rosicky might return to the squad after a bout of illness. Other than that there’s nobody banjaxed from the midweek

Sanchez has lost his sizzle

For the purposes of this piece I am going to work on two broad assumptions in the (perhaps naïve) belief that you will be in agreement. Assumption number 1. Arsenal have been playing better in the three month period between mid-December to mid-March, compared to the period August to December.

On English teams crapping out of Europe

A woeful Champions League season for English clubs ended last night as Man City were hammered 1-0 by a Messi inspired Barcelona. Only for Bob Dandruff in nets the score could have hit double figures, and hopefully that’s him using up all his saves in one night so they let

Monaco 0-2 Arsenal: Gunners all right on the night, but 1st leg proves costly

Match report –  By the numbers – Player ratings – Video As I said during the week I’d already made my peace with our European exit after the first leg, but when you’re winning 2-0 with 13 minutes plus injury time to go you can’t not hope and/or believe just

Monaco preview: Players sound rallying cry, but reality bites

Champions League action tonight as we look to pull off what would be a minor miracle in Monaco after losing the first leg 3-1 at home. We all know the stats, how rarely a two-goal deficit is overturned in the knock-out stages, and the fact is we have to go
