Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. On this week’s show we look back at the 1-0 win over Huddersfield thanks to Lucas Torreira’s late, great goal. There’s plenty of chat about the Uruguayan as he continues to make his mark on the club, a...

Lucas Torreira’s Premier League season so far: Appearances: 16 – 11 starts, 5 substitute appearances. Goals: 2 Assists: 2 Yellow cards: 4 Which of those stats sticks out most for you? For me it’s the bookings. One more and he’s suspended. One mistimed tackle, one foul a referee arbitrarily deems...

Match report – Player ratings – Video It wasn’t the prettiest performance of the season, but Unai Emery’s Arsenal once again showed an ability to grind out a result when not playing well as Lucas Torreira’s late acrobatic goal gave us all three points against Huddersfield at the Emirates yesterda...

I have utilised my connections in British Intelligence this week and have intercepted three pieces of important incoming correspondence to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club which you may find below. Click the images to embeggin.

Good morning. I mean, I’m sure it’s good for some people but I will have to admit that there is a significant measure of *boilk* round these parts. Also, the sky looks like the kind of sky you’d see in a nuclear winter, so it’s an inauspicious start to the day. At least the puppy …

Unai Emery’s life in English football began with a difficult quirk of the fixture list. Our opening two games were against Man City and Chelsea, and we know both ended in defeat. Since then we’ve remained unbeaten in all competitions, even when the schedule was unkind. We could have had a much lo...

Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast – the Arsenal podcast. On this week’s show I’m joined by Goonerholic and the Man from East Lower to discuss what has been a good week for the Gunners. We go back to Sunday’s win over Sp*rs, touch on the midweek draw with Man Utd, discuss the incredible …
Arseblog - Thu Dec 6 5:30 PM
Replacing Arsene Wenger’s omnipotent presence at Arsenal was always going to be more of a project than an appointment. In hindsight, it seems obvious that the contract he signed in 2017 was a temporary measure so that the club could go about making the backroom appointments to buttress the new He...

Match report – Player ratings – Video If, ahead of the two games against Sp*rs and Man Utd, you’d offered me 4 points I’m sure I would have taken that. It would mean beating one and maintaining the unbeaten run against the other. I still think in the cold light of day it’s a creditable …

The dust has barely settled on the North London derby win and we have to put it behind us and go again. Tonight it’s a trip to Old Trafford to face Man Utd, and regardless of their current difficulties this has very often been an unhappy hunting ground for us. Our last win there in …
Arseblog - Tue Dec 4 8:21 AM
Morning all. The derby stuff continues with the news that the FA have charged both Arsenal and Sp*rs for failing to ‘ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion’. I take great exception to this. Under Unai Emery there’s been a real focus on hard work, organisation and tactical...
Arseblog - Mon Dec 3 12:31 PM
Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. It’s an especially goodly morning as the derby day triumph dominates today’s episode. We enjoy the 4-2 routing of Sp*rs at the Emirates yesterday on what was a great day for Arsenal, the fans and Unai...
Arseblog - Mon Dec 3 7:25 AM
Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video I think the fact that I’ve tried – and failed – with about six different opening lines to this blog is the best illustration of how I’m feeling this morning. As I said in yesterday’s preview, some games are more than just three points …

When it comes to the Premier League every game is important and every point is crucial, but there are some games which just mean more than others. The North London derby is one of those. A good result feels like more than three points, a bad one leaves you disheartened beyond the points you’ve dr...

I have been most impressed this year with our splendid new miniature berserker, Luke Terrier, the Winchester Wingnut. His tenacious and full-blooded displays have roused the faithful, bringing as they do such a frightening intensity. You may be surprised to learn that such is his energy, between...

Match report – Player ratings – Video Arsenal were crowned Europa League Group E champions last night after a 3-0 win away from home against FC Vorskla (who were also away from home). Unai Emery’s team, made up of young players, a smattering of experience, and Carl Jenkinson at centre-half, playe...

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. On this episode James and I look back on the 3-0 win over FC Vorskla in the Europa League and focus on the promising performances of the young players. We chat about the potential of Emile Smith Rowe a...

Arseblog - Thu Nov 29 7:03 AM
As expected Unai Emery’s squad for tonight’s Europa League game with FC Vorskla is made up of players on the fringes of his ‘first’ team, and fleshed out by youngsters from the academy – full list here. The selection isn’t to disrespect the opposition, or even the competition itself, but down the...
Arseblog - Wed Nov 28 5:00 PM
Ordinarily, succeeding a legacy manager is a tough job because of the shadow cast by your predecessor. In the case of Unai Emery, his predecessor’s legacy creates issues that are a little less visceral. It is absolutely right that the Spaniard has the patience and full-throated support of the Ars...
Arseblog - Wed Nov 28 6:56 AM
Tomorrow night’s Europa League encounter with Vorskla Poltava was already going to feel somewhat surreal. Arsenal travelling 350km east of Kiev to play a fringe team in temperatures of around -13 was strange enough, but the fact that the team and the few dedicated fans were going to be heading in...
Arseblog - Tue Nov 27 7:23 AM
As we consider the idea that Mesut Ozil wasn’t considered suitably robust to face Bournemouth away, James made an interesting point in yesterday’s Arsecast Extra about how Unai Emery works. He seems to be the kind of manager who will pick a team for a specific game, a line-up he feels will give h...

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. On this week’s show we get back to winning ways with a 2-1 win over Bournemouth, but we do continue to ride our luck at times. We discuss the change of formation, the yin and yang of our performance as...
Arseblog - Mon Nov 26 7:16 AM
Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video I’m sure I’ve said this before, but analysing Arsenal under Unai Emery is difficult thing because there’s so often a kind of distance between results and performances. The former have generally been very good, the latter very much a mixed bag...

Arseblog - Sun Nov 25 8:57 AM
Throughout this week Unai Emery has stressed the need for his team to get back to winning ways. Although we remain unbeaten in the league since the game at Stamford Bridge in August, we’ve taken just 3 points from the last 9 available, and it’s self-evident that taking the maximum from today’s tr...
Arseblog - Sat Nov 24 8:53 AM
Good morning. A quick Saturday round-up for you, and ahead of tomorrow’s game against Bournemouth we got some injury updates. The only thing that was in any way surprising was the news that Nacho Monreal will miss a further two weeks with a hamstring injury, and that’s both a blow and a worry. He...
