Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.
On this week’s show we pore over the 2-2
defeat draw with Watford on Sunday, and what feels like a significant day for Unai Emery in his Arsenal career. Having been 2-0 up at the break, we were lucky not to lose, and the second half performance in particular raises serious questions about the manager and his team. Why do we allow so many shots? Why do we concede so many penalties? Is there enough accountability? Is there something in the culture at the club that accepts too many individual mistakes? We go into it in detail, from the goals we scored to the ones we conceded, what the result says about this team and its character, and what it means for Emery who is finding the tide of public opinion turning against him. All that, plus listener questions about the Europa League, Aubameyang’s contract, Calum Chambers, Pepe’s impact so far and lots 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.
