Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.
James is on holidays this week, so to pore over the 2-2 draw in the North London derby I’m joined by Tayo Popoola. We chat about the first half mistakes which gifted them two goals, not least the penalty conceded by Granit Xhaka. There’s some discussion about him, his role in the team and the frequency of those errors which raise questions about the coach’s decisions too, as well a lot on our comeback, the goals of Lacazette and Aubameyang, how Ceballos helped change the dynamic, and a fantastic performance from Matteo Guendouzi. Then we answer listener questions about Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s departure, young players like Nelson and Willock, what the future holds for Mesut Ozil and Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Sokratis and the centre of our defence, and loads more.
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.
