Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.
Arsenal are through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League after a 5-1 aggregate win, and a 3-1 victory in the second leg. We discuss the convincing qualification in the context of our recent form, as well as the absurd furore surrounding Danny Welbeck and the penalty incident which has sparked some ridiculous coverage in the press. We chat about diving in general, the mental gymnastics of being a fan on either side of that debate, and enjoy what has been a good week for the club. There’s excitement about Europe as a trophy edges closer, and we then answer listener questions about things we might have to just accept in football, Granit Xhaka, Ramsey or Wilshere, idyllic Sundays, James’ secret life as a cracker pusher, and there’s a scary proposition to finish with.
Remember, you can send us questions via which we’ll try and get to each week. Send them to either @arseblog or @Gunnerblog (or both) using the hashtag #arsecastextra. Best to send them Monday morning so they get noticed more easily.
You can subscribe to the Arsecast Extra on iTunes by clicking here. Or if you want to subscribe directly to the feed URL you can do so too (this is a much better way to do it as you don’t experience the delays from iTunes).
Also, if you’re a fan of the show, please leave us a rating/review on iTunes, it’d be greatly appreciated.
