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

It’s not an Arsecast Extra but James is with me to discuss the 2-0 defeat to Sp*rs in the Carabao Cup, the performance, the attacking and defensive issues, and the big issue which was the absence of Mesut Ozil from the squad for what were called ‘tactical reasons’. It’s clear something else is going on, we’re not sure exactly what but it’s not healthy and we tease it out as much as possible. There’s also the winner of the t-shirt competition from a couple of weeks again from goodhonestpro.com, and a good dose of the usual, and some festive, waffle.

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.

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.
