    Ivy Insights

    The Arseblog - the Arsecasts, Arsenal podcasts podcast is undoubtedly one of the best football podcasts out there, especially for fans of Arsenal Football Club. For over 3.5 years, I have been a dedicated listener to this podcast and it has consistently provided insightful discussions and humor that make each episode enjoyable. Whether Arsenal wins or loses, listening to the Arsecast adds something special to the experience and serves as a cathartic outlet after disappointing matches. The hosts, Andrew and James, along with their guests, deliver great content and keep listeners up-to-date with all the latest news about Arsenal.

    One of the best aspects of this podcast is its insightful discussions and analysis of the games and team. Andrew, James, and their guests are genuinely levelheaded and knowledgeable about the game. They provide commentary that goes beyond just being whiny fans beating the same old drum about their beloved club. Their honest conversations about what happens on the pitch are spot-on and offer a unique perspective that engages listeners.

    However, one potential downside is that sometimes certain incidents or actions in matches are not thoroughly discussed or analyzed. It would be beneficial if these moments were given more attention and examined in depth to provide a well-rounded review of each game. Additionally, while occasional rants against VAR can be entertaining, they may become repetitive for some listeners.

    In conclusion, The Arseblog - the Arsecasts, Arsenal podcasts podcast is my absolute favorite Arsenal podcast and an overall outstanding soccer podcast. It strikes a perfect balance between informative discussions and entertaining banter both within and outside of football talk. The hosts Andrew and James are brilliant in their delivery of content, making each episode relevant and interesting. If you're a fan of Arsenal or simply enjoy engaging football discussions, I highly recommend giving this podcast a listen - you won't be disappointed!

Officiating and VAR are at the fore, so there's plenty of chat about the Kai Havertz challenge, the red card that should have been awarded to Bruno Guimares, and the winning goal which should not have stood.

First, Alex gives her insight on the signing of Laia Codina from Barcelona before Tim and Alex segue into talking about the Women's World Cup, Alex's experiences of covering the tournament from Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, how the 'mid-tier' nations are closing the gap to the elite in international football and how Spain won the tournament in spite of their coach and the RFEF. Tim and Alex finish by talking about the ongoing situation with RFEF President Luis Rubiales and his refusal to go quietly.Alex wrote a piece for the Guardian recently covering the history of internal conflict between the RFEF and the Spanish players which we would point you to to give the conversation its full context - read it here: A revolution 40 years in the making: how the Spanish women's team fought backYou can follow Tim on Twitter @Stillmanator : Follow Alex @alexibaceta23 Hosted on Acast.

    In this episode we chat about the 2-2 draw with Fulham on Saturday, starting with our annoying tendency to concede early goals at home. We examine the possible reasons, as well as Arsenal's response which, after some time to reflect, was better than you might think. We chat about the goals we scored, Fabio Vieira's excellent impact from the bench, and then how defensive carelessness cost us for 10 man Fulham's equaliser – leading to the frustration of dropped points. We then have questions about Saka, emotions, who to play left 8 in the next game, Emile Smith Rowe, and lots more.Get your Bukayo Saka t-shirt here – use the code ARSEBLOG to get 10% off: https://www.astorelike94.co.uk/product/sakira-manga-gunners-bootleg-away-t-shirt-black-goldGet extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog Hosted on Acast.

    In this episode, we discuss the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday night. We begin by talking about the continued absence of Gabriel from the starting line-up, and wonder if the tactical rationale stacks up 100%. Then we move onto the game itself, Arsenal's first half chances, winning the penalty in the second half, and then the dismissal of Takehiro Tomiyasu – based around perceived time-wasting rules, and a ludicrous second yellow card. The defensive rearguard action was enjoyable in the end but could we have had more control when down to 10 men? We also answer listener questions about Kai Havertz's role, a possible reintegration for Nicolas Pepe, Leandro Trossard's minimal role so far this season, Declan Rice, selling players, and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog Hosted on Acast.

We then move on to the 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest, Mikel Arteta's team selection, and the two high quality goals we scored in the first half. We couldn't find a third, so Forest getting one back made things a bit nervy, but the important thing was to take all three points and we did – even if there's obviously room for improvement.
