Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.
There’s a lot going on in this episode as we look back on the 1-1 draw with Brentford on Saturday. The Arsenal performance is one thing, but there’s a lot of discussion of VAR, Lee Mason ‘forgetting’ to do his job, and how it feels like we’ve been robbed of two points. We acknowledge a good Brentford display, and ask whether there might be any kind of silver lining to the officials making such a bad decision. There’s chat about the game itself, especially with Man City on the horizon, the atmosphere in the stadium as the title race reality really sinks in, and lots more – including questions about how we cope with the deep block, possible changes for Wednesday and squad rotation in general, Erling Haaland’s reported injury, the standard of officiating, and the new stadium artwork.
