Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

Arsenal Gentleman's Weekly Review
Ah, Arsenal, you are a perplexing mistress. For 79 minutes on Saturday last you were beguiling, exhilarating, a pleasure to watch. We created chance after chance after chance, almost three dozen of them, forcing Mr. De Gea into FOURTEEN saves. Unfortunately these were the last 79 minutes of the match and we were already a brace down by that point. Let...

Episode 452 – Overcrowding

Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast - the Arsenal podcast. On this week's show I chat with James from @gunnerblog about the 6-0 win over BATE Borisov, some redemption for the likes of Mathieu Debuchy and Theo Walcott, a great performance from Jack Wilshere, the manager's decision to go back to a back four, whether he might stick with...

Arsenal 6-0 BATE Borisov: Gunners finish with a flourish as tougher tests await

Match report - Player ratings - Video There may not have been many there to see it, but Arsenal put on a show for those who did turn up. The smallest crowd of the season saw the biggest win of the season, a 6-0 thumping of a BATE Borisov side who, let's be honest, weren't that good. And I'm being...

Can Arsenal finish Europa League group stage with a flourish?

Step right up, step right up. Europa League fun and frolics for all the family lie ahead. See the incredible bearded man, the young boy who never grew up, and Ice-Skating Jack. Those of us hoping to see Arsene Wenger throw out a team full of young talent for tonight's game against BATE Borisov are likely to be disappointed for...

Catalyst for Change

Whilst it feels as though it would require some kind of bloody coup to remove Arsene Wenger from his current post, Arsenal are making cosmetic changes behind the scenes to transform the club from a benevolent dictatorship to a more modern sporting organisation. Sven Mislintat replaces Steve Rowley as ‘Head of Recruitment’, while Raul Sanllehi joins from Barcelona as...

There’s less anger than there used to be. Why is that?

First up this morning, a thank you to everyone who listens to the Arsecast and Arsecast Extra. This month we're through the 1,000,000 downloads/listens barrier and I just wanted to say how much I appreciate you all taking the time to put us in your ears on a Monday and Friday. We'd be shouting into the void if it wasn't...

Tickets and Sven and Transfers and the FA Cup and stuff

Later this week our focus turns to the Europa League with our final game of the not-that-enthralling group stages. Arsenal have already topped the group so it's a game that could give Arsene Wenger the chance to experiment a bit with his team, but I suspect he's going to play it relatively safe. I'd be all on for a team...

Arsecast Extra Episode 203 – 04.12.2017

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. This week's show was recorded in Dublin with James and an extra Extra guest, Andrew Allen. We look back on the weekend's game against Man United, the performance, the defensive errors, Arsenal's response, another defensive error, and ask whether there can be any positives taken from...

Talking points

Happy Monday to you, welcome to another week and with Europa League action it's Sunday until we can get back into the Premier League saddle. I have a few more thoughts on some of the things that went on during/after the United game, so I'm going to do them by category. Mustafi's injury Arsene Wenger's comments about him after the game...

Arsenal 1-3 Man Utd: No comfort in numbers as Gunners self-destruct

Match report - Player ratings - By the numbers - Video Where to start? The result, I guess. We lost. Yes, we played well, apart from the glaring errors which cost us goals – which I find hard to separate from our overall performance, dominated possession and chances, but for me that makes what happened yesterday all the more frustrating. I...

Arsenal looking to make it a great eight at home as United come to town

With seven wins from seven in the Premier League this season, Arsenal have a solid record to protect when Manchester United come to town later today. They have a four point lead over us in the table, a win would cut that to one, and cap what has been a very decent week for us so far. Two wins, six...

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review – Double Header

Arseblog note: Due to circumstances beyond my control, last week's post Sp*rs review was not posted. Thus, this week is a double header, starting with the most current and then onto the glorious fisting of that lot.
