Episode 472 – Arsene’s last hurrah

Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast – the Arsenal podcast.

This is a bit of a strange one: the last ever Arsecast with Arsene Wenger as manager. He’s been a constant throughout the lifetime of this show, so I chat with James from Gunnerblog about that, this long goodbye we’ve had with him, some typically wonderful press conference stuff from the boss, and what comes next.

Then I chat with writer Tom Williams about his excellent new book ‘Do you speak football?’. This is a glossary of football words and terminology from around the world. How many different ways can you say nutmeg? Why is a clean sheet unique to English? And what on earth is a BATTLE PIG? Find out more in the show. There’s also a final farewell to a long time Arsecast character, not so regular anymore, but he pops in at the end to say his goodbyes.

Follow James @gunnerblog, Tom is @tomwfootball, and if you can’t find his book in your local independent bookshop, you can get it here (but if you can, get it from an actual shop, it’s better for everyone).

You’ll find all the download and subscription links below, and you can always subscribe in your favourite podcasting app by searching for ‘arseblog’ or ‘arsecast’. All our archives are found on site or via our Acast page, and if you are a regular listener via iTunes, if you would be so kind as to leave a review/rating that would be greatly appreciated.
