Arsecast Extra Episode 145 - 24.10.2016  

In this week's show we look back at the somewhat disappointing 0-0 draw against Boro, and discuss how Arsenal will have to find a solution when teams play like that. We also chat about riding our luck a bit defensively, what Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla might have been able to contribute if they were fit, and we also have a little bit of a laugh at Mourinho just because it would have been rude not to. We then answer listener questions about the AGM, Alex Iwobi, the EFL Cup game against Reading, and Arsene Wenger as an MMA fighter. You can find the Snapchat face-swaps on

As well that there's the Angriest Man on Twitter, some disturbing bus related imagery, a look ahead to the Boro game, and all the usual waffle.

Arsecast Extra Episode 144 - 17.10.2016  

In this week's show we hear all about James' enormous balls before going on to discuss the 3-2 win over Swansea, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil's goals and, of course, Granit Xhaka's red card. We touch on our current form, with 6 wins out of 6 in the league, before we answer listener questions about the Champions League, squad rotation, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's recent comments, Ozil and Alexis contracts, Arsene Wenger's future as part of that, new coloured cards in football, FIFA 17 and lots more.

Episode 400 - A decade of waffle  

This week's Arsecast is kind of a landmark one. Episode 400 comes almost 10 years to the day since the very first Arsecast, so there's a bit of a look back with some moments from the last 10 years, a bit of reflection on how much has happened since then, and to talk about the football I welcome back to the very first Arsecast guest, Goodplaya, for a bit of a chat about all that. This Arsecast is absolutely full to the brim with waffle, usual and unusual. There's also a nice little competition in there for you too, and one day fantasy football with FanDuel.

Arsecast Extra Episode 143 - 10.10.2016  

In this week's Interlull episode James reveals the murky underside to riding camels, Trip Advisor reviews and elaborate scams in the Dromedary world in Morocco. Then we go over all the week's exciting news from an Arsenal point of view, touch on Sam Allardyce's sacking and more before we take listener questions about Robert Pires as Sporting Director, new contracts for Ozil and Alexis, Tony Adams on his 50th, and a strange curse for Jose Mourinho.

Arsecast Extra Episode 142 - 03.10.2016  

In this week's episode we join James on his holidays in Morocco to discuss the very late 1-0 win over Burnley yesterday. We discuss the winning goal, the performance, team selection, and the absence of Lucas Perez. Was it injury or was he just not selected? Then we answer listener's questions about Shkodran Mustafi, Alex Iwobi, the rise in form of Theo Walcott, playing against packed defences, and lots more.

Episode 399 - Who is this Theo Walcott kid?  

In this week's Arsecast I find it difficult not to laugh at Diego Costa, because who doesn't want to laugh at Diego Costa? I'm also joined by Rory Smith to discuss this latest iteration of Theo Walcott and how, perhaps, some clarity as to where he plays is helping him perform. We also discuss the fluid front four, and Arsene Wenger as he comes up on 20 years as manager of Arsenal. We touch on his legacy at the club and in English football, and there's all the usual waffle too - as well as 1-day Fantasy Football with FanDuel.

Arsecast Extra Episode 141 NYC - 26.09.2016  

This special episode was recorded live in the Barleycorn bar in New York, thanks to Arsenal NYC. James and I relive some fun times in the big city, enjoy the 3-0 win over Chelsea, laugh at Diego Costa, and then answer lots of questions from the audience while people feed us shots of whiskey. Good times.

Episode 398 - The Early One  

This week's Arsecast is a day early for reasons which will become apparent when you listen. I look back on what might be a unique week for Arsenal in terms of results and team selections, there's EFL Cup chat, and I'm joined by Philippe Auclair to discuss the shape of the squad, new boys Xhaka and Lucas' midweek exploits, we try and figure out what's going on with Olivier Giroud, look ahead to Chelsea and lots more. There's some of the usual waffle, and some nonsense and a bit of guff.

Arsecast Extra Episode 140 - 19.09.2016  

On this week's show we enjoy a night-time recording and take some joy in the pain of Jose Mourinho before trying to figure out why Harry Kane is sucking his thumb. We look back on the 4-1 win over Hull, the team selection, and that first Arsenal goal from Granit Xhaka. There are listener questions about the best debut goals for the club, Xhaka's place on the bench, what kind of team we might pick for tomorrow night's EFL Cup and lots more.

Arsecast 397 - Alexis Coq-up  

Time now for this week's Arsecast and I'm joined by Paolo Bandini to look back at the PSG game, Arsene Wenger's team selections, Alexis Sanchez up front, David Ospina in goal, and our somewhat erratic defensive play. We also discuss Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, tactical set-ups and lots more. There's some debunking of spurious records, lots of the usual waffle, we look ahead to the Hull and Nottingham Forest games, and we hear from an old friend right at the end. There's also one-day Fantasy Football with Fanduel in which you can win real cash.

Arsecast Extra Episode 139 - 12.09.2016  

On this week's show we look back at the late 2-1 win over Southampton, the collective performance and those of new signings Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi. We discuss Santi Cazorla's penalty technique, refereeing decisions, and leaving Shane Long injured on the ground, before we answer questions about our Champions League opener against PSG tomorrow night, the pace of our play, on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's inability to take his chances, and more including ROBOT FRIDGES before James invents a new word.

Episode 396 - The Croaky One  

Time now for this week's Arsecast and I'm joined by Amy Lawrence and Stuart MacFarlane to talk about their brand new book 'The Wenger revolution: Twenty Years of Arsenal which chronicles the 20 years of Arsene Wenger's reign through amazing pictures from Stuart, words from Amy, and Wenger himself who chats about the various photos. We also discuss the new arrivals, the transfer window business and the decision of Jack Wilshere to push for a loan move away from the club. I'm still sick so there's probably a bit less of the usual waffle than normal. There's also one-day Fantasy Football with Fanduel in which you can win real cash. Sign up with FanDuel use the code 'ARSEBLOG' when you do.

Arsecast Extra Episode 138 - 05.09.2016  

On this week's Interlull show we look back on the final days of the transfer window and discuss the departures of Serge Gnabry and Jack Wilshere. Is it now sink or swim for the England man, and why was he so keen to leave rather than fight for his place? We also discuss players who stayed, like Mathieu Debuchy and Chuba Akpom, as well as answering listener questions about Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Joel Campbell, how we are going to IMPLEMENT MUSTAFI, goalscoring midfielders, Arsene Wenger's selection decisions, the legends game and much more.

Episode 395 - I'd rather Jack ...  

On this week's show I'm joined by James from We are the Northbank to discuss Jack Wilshere's move to Bournemouth. Is it the beginning of the end of his Arsenal career, or a real chance to prove his worth to the club? As well as that we chat about the signings of Mustafi and Perez, there's some wonderful, beautiful silence, a man with a disgusting arm and we go behind the scenes when the cameras stop rolling at Sky Sports on transfer deadline day. And, of course, all the usual waffle

Arsecast Extra Episode 137 - 29.08.2016  

On this week's show we have a look at our first win of the season, the 3-1 at Watford. We discuss the performances (individual and collective), the impact of Ozil on the team and Alexis, the manager's team selection and the rest. We touch on the soon-to-be-announced signings of Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez, before answering questions about the right back situation, the futures of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere, who might leave the club before the window closes, before deciding what we'd sell at our fish stall in Camden Market.

Episode 394 - Signings Ahoy!  

On this week's show I'm joined by Tim Stillman and the Man from East Lower to discuss the Champions League draw, the potential arrivals of Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi in the context of our transfer business in general, how they might fit into the team, and what it might mean in terms of departures for one or two others, and the rest of the week's news. We look ahead to the Watford game, there's one day fantasy football with Fan Duel, and all the usual waffle.

Arsecast Extra Episode 136 - 22.08.2016  

On this week's show we look at the 0-0 draw against Leicester built off the back of an impressive defensive performance and the return of Laurent Koscielny. We then chat about the manager's post-match press conference, and his comments about the club's 600 employees, the media influence over fans, and transfer policy. We then answer listener questions about Joel Campbell's loan departure to Sporting Lisbon, why we can't seem to sell players we let go, our expectations for the rest of the window, and what we would allow Vic Akers to smear on our bodies. There's also news of a live Arsecast Extra in NYC at the end of September.

Episode 393 - The Arseblog Beercast  

This week's Arsecast required beer after the Liverpool defeat and another exciting week of nothing much. I'm joined by Andrew Allen and Tayo Popoola to try and make sense of it all, or at least to just laugh sadly at it all. We end up somewhere in the middle as we discuss the opening day, our transfer inactivity, the familiarity of the way we got beaten and all the rest. There's one day Fantasy Football with FanDuel with a chance for you to win real cash, and all the usual waffle.

Arsecast Extra Episode 135 - 15.08.2016  

On this week's show we discuss disastrous opening day defeat to Liverpool, the lack of preparation that played a part in the loss, the defending, lack of transfer market activity and what Arsene Wenger has done - or hasn't done - to get his team ready for the start of a new season. We then answer listener's questions which ask WHHHHYYYYYYYYYY?, about what we do now, whether new is new or old is old, about fans and atmosphere and much more – including the possibility of some serious nudity from James in the future.
