Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.

On the first Arsecast Extra of 2020, I’m joined by Tayo Popoola, standing in for James who is away this week. We chat about the 1-0 win over Leeds in the FA Cup, the quintessential game of two halves. Leeds were on top in the first, we were far better in the second. We chat about turnaround, Mikel Arteta’s half-time teamtalk, the response from the players, Sokratis rampaging down the wing, Reiss Nelson’s goal, and the win itself. Then we have listener questions about Granit Xhaka’s fouling and how it went down on TV, Nicolas Pepe and Matteo Guendouzi as players of potential who need some rough edges polished off them, whether this is a false dawn under Mikel Arteta, protecting the 49 game unbeaten run 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.

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).

You can listen without leaving this page by using the player below, download the Acast app for iOS or Android, or download the MP3 directly using the link below.

Also, if you’re a fan of the show, please leave us a rating/review on iTunes, it’d be greatly appreciated.
