Getting ready for United, press conference wind-up bingo, bad news for Santi

Welcome to Friday folks, and it's been quite an interesting week all things considered. Since Sunday we've won a tough away game in fun fashion – fun for us that is, not for the opposition; we racked up another three points and improved our goal difference considerably with a 5-0 win over Huddersfield; and appointed a Definite Not A Director...

Episode 451 – The Ferryman

ARSECAST EPISODE 451 - THE ARSENAL PODCAST
Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast - the Arsenal podcast. On this week's show I'm joined by Philippe Auclair to discuss the 5-0 win over Huddersfield, the beauty of Arsenal's goals, and Mesut Ozil's contribution, before we move on to the recent appointments of Raul Sanllehi as 'Head of Football Relations' and Sven Mislintat as 'Head of Recruitment'. What...

Massive Attack

One of the potential upsides for the remainder of Arsenal’s season is that the Alexis, Özil and Lacazette partnership has not had an opportunity to entirely gel. Injury and tactical tinkering has kept the triumvirate apart and all three players have been relatively slow to hit their stride this season. Lacazette’s injury in the Huddersfield match threatens to separate the...

Arsenal 5-0 Huddersfield: Ozil and Ramsey shine in second-half destruction

Match report - Player ratings - Video Arsenal made it seven wins from seven at home in the Premier League this season, and racked up the biggest win of the campaign thus far with a 5-0 hammering of Huddersfield last night. However, it wasn't quite as one-sided as the scoreline suggests. We opened the scoring in the third minute and the...

To rotate or not to rotate for Huddersfield : Thoughts on Raul Sanllehi

We're back in the Premier League saddle tonight with a home game against newly promoted Huddersfield. On paper a fixture people would expect Arsenal to cruise, but anyone who has seen them this season will know we should take nothing for granted. They've beaten Manchester United at home and almost held Man City at the weekend, so they're a team...

Midweek rotation likely :: Raul Sanllehi linked with Arsenal appointment again

Arsene Wenger became the president of the US in my dream, leaving a vacancy at Arsenal which many speculated would be filled by a top name manager. Instead, we appointed the police guy from Stranger Things and his first signing for the club was Nigel Winterburn who he'd talked out of retirement to play as a centre-half. It didn't work...

Arsecast Extra Episode 202 – 27.11.2017

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. This week we discuss yet another injury time win over Burnley, what a lovely man Lee Mason is, and how the outrage of the opposition fans was like sweet, sweet music to our ears. It pushes Arsenal into the top four, and we discuss the result,...

Burnley 0-1 Arsenal: Clarets give Gunners a push over the line

Match report - Player ratings - By the numbers - Video In all my many years of watching Arsenal, I can't remember a sequence of games and late wins like the ones we've had over Burnley in recent times. Last season at Turf Moor there was that late, weird goal by Laurent Koscielny which, in fairness, was a handball and...

A rested Arsenal have more questions to answer at Burnley

Premier League action today as we face Burnley at Turf Moor, and it's a chance to put some distance between us and them – given how unexpectedly well they've been doing – but it's also an opportunity to put some icing on last week's North London derby cake. Sp*rs drew 1-1 with managerless West Brom yesterday, so three points today...

Saturday round-up: Ozil, deadly Burnley + Jack conundrum

Blogs was up very late last night dealing with something far more important than Arsenal so I’m going to run through a quick Saturday morning round-up before I head to my day job…a day job that doesn’t usually involve Saturday work but does today because for one November weekend every year global consumerism decides to gorge on itself against...

Cologne 1-0 Arsenal: Gunners top the group despite turgid performance in Germany

Match report - Player ratings - Video Arsene Wenger picked an experienced team for last night's game against Cologne and my suspicion is he did so to ensure we topped the group. Although our result didn't go the way we wanted, we still did that because the game between BATE Borisov and Red Star Belgrade ended in a draw, but...

Episode 450 – The teacup of tribalism

Listeners will be glad to hear that there's some, but relatively little, discussion of last night's 1-0 defeat to Cologne in the Europa League. There's only so much of that game one can relive, but I chat about with Archie Rhind-Tutt. Then I'm joined by Daniel Storey from Football 365 to chat about teacup GIF-gate, the changing face of...
