Arsenal 3-1 Leicester: Second half Gunners do it again as Ozil shines

Match report - Player ratings - By the numbers - Video Everyone knows the old cliche about how football is a game of two halves, but Arsenal again demonstrated they're like a team of two halves with a second 45 minutes that brought about our tenth successive win in all competitions. In our last seven Premier League games we've been...

Arsecast Extra Episode 253 – 23.10.2018

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. On this week's show we record right after our 3-1 win over Leicester at the Emirates. An iffy first half was followed by an excellent second, Mesut Ozil and his captain's armband stole the show, and we scored yet another sublime goal to help us to...

Arsenal can make it ten out of ten, as Unai Emery ponders team selection

I know the Interlull was officially over last week but our special extended version ends tonight when we face Leicester City at home, our first football action for fifteen days. A win tonight would make it ten in a row, but it all depends how we find ourselves after the break. Sometimes an Interlull can actually be a bit...

Sunday round-up: Alexandre Lacazette is a burrito

Good morning. A very quick Sunday round-up for you ahead of our game against Leicester tomorrow night. From an Arsenal point of view there's not a great deal going on. Unai Emery says he was interested in signing Alexandre Lacazette for PSG when he was manager there, but suggested the complicated nature of the relationship between that club and Lyon...

Arsenal must be smarter as KSE confirm self-sustaining business model will continue

Yesterday our new Head of Football, Raul Sanllehi, and the club's new Managing Director, Vinai Venkatesham, gave an interview to the BBC – read the full transcript here. As you're all aware, these two men will be the ones responsible for the running of the club after the departure of Ivan Gazidis at the end of this month. As the...

Unai Emery demands more because Arsenal need to get better

As we're all aware, Arsenal are on a nine match winning streak. This is clearly a good thing. A positive thing. A happy thing. We're just two points off the leaders, we're in the top four, and after the start to the season we had, it's been a fantastic response and the team has shown resilience, character and a...

Episode 497 – Improvement

Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast - the Arsenal podcast. On this week's show I chat with Clive Palmer about the work Unai Emery is doing, from creating a pathway for young players to make it to the first team, to changing the mentality of the players as he looks to build a platform on which to create his...

A Time To Sell

There was a time when Arsenal were derided as ‘a selling club.’ As Arsene Wenger began to replace the squad bequeathed to him by George Graham with little known players from France and down on their luck talents in need of some TLC, Europe’s elite began to sit up and take notice. Suddenly, Arsene Wenger found that his charges...

It’s training again … thoughts through a lens

At this point I assume all of our international travellers are back in London, and ready to get down to the business at hand. That business is getting ready to play Leicester on Monday, then go to Lisbon next week, then return to London to play Crystal Palace on Sunday and then ... well, let's take it three games...

The Interlull is over + Reiss Nelson continues to catch the eye

Good news everybody! This Interlull is over, and you're reading this in the voice of Professor Farnsworth from Futurama. The bad news is that there's another one next month and while almost everyone else gets to play this weekend, we have to endure an extra Arsenal free couple of days before we play Leicester on Monday night. What a tremendous...

An injury to Sokratis would highlight our lack of central-defensive depth

Throughout this Interlull my interest has been primarily that our players come back without injury. It's been so far so good, but then via @AFCPressWatch2 I saw a story about Sokratis Papastathopoulos which doesn't sound that promising. Google Translate isn't that helpful really as when you put the headline and body of the story into it and ask it to...
