Even in Arsenal’s darkest times, comforting to not be alone.
Makes my commutes bearable. Look forward to Monday and fridays just to hear your insights into something we all love!!! The Arsenal!!
Love listening. If you guys have a way to fix James’ constant connection cutting out that would be awesome.
Always impressed with the deep knowledge and passion on Arsecasts. Keep it coming.
I used to read Andrew mangan’s articles on espnfc and liked his views, shame he doesn’t write there anymore but I recently stumbled upon arseblog and arsecast and truly these are the best sources for arsenal content out there. Intelligent and insightful discussion which is hard to find. Keep up the excellent work.
Brilliant material gents, keep it up!
The best Arsenal podcast on the face of the earth.
This show is fabulous. Gives you an informed fans prospective. I always had my suspicions about James, though.
Andrew and James are the perfect combination of feisty and flippant. Great podcast that’s grounded but doesn’t mind digressing into the absurd. Perfect for catharsis after a rough match, which is especially appreciated these days. Hopefully, Arsenal will mirror their excellent form sooner rather than later.
The most objective analysis of Arsenal performances or lack there of. As far as podcasts go, it is one of the very best.
The content and quality is on the opposite spectrum of Arsenal’s performances this season. Have enjoyed arseblog and his guests’ ramblings for a long time and only a few other football podcasts are equal if not better.
Great entertaining Arsenal podcast! & Magpies 😆
I’m a new listener to the podcast and I absolutely loved this episode reminiscing about the greatness of Bobby. Hope there’s i couple more of these sprinkled in throughout the season.
Been a listener for a few years. Just found out how to review (not tech savvy, my bad Blogs). Arsecast and arseblog are great source of arsenal news, with an injection of humor, professionalism and class. Thanks for doing what you do. Cheers.
Best podcast available - makes Monday great! Does a wonderful job uniting fans for Arsenal and EPL, and avoiding divisive issues not related to football.
Great podcast. Hits all the right notes. My go to podcast for my Arsenal fix.
Yes you can get Kitkats in America. But we are Not encouraged to eat the whole bloody thing just to impress the girls. Wrapping and all. So funny you guys . Thanks for keeping me sane. Love you both Michael The Miami Painter So pleased for your higher ratings. You deserve it mate. Thank you so much for helping me keep sane and I touch. Michael The Miami Painter
Thanks for all the years you’ve been there thru the highs and many lows of this club we love
i have not missed one in a couple of years. i truly look forward to this every week, even the not goodly ones.
Don't have much free time but I never miss this podcast. No week is complete without hearing both the podcasts...great bookends to any week (especially when Arsenal win). Love the chemistry between James and Arseblog...absolutely hilarious!! Goes great with the blog, btw!
Always enjoy the level headed banter with James and Andrew! Some other podcasts go absolutely ballistic when the team struggles, but they find a way to still have fun with it.
As a fan in America, this show keeps me connected to the club in a big way. I would be a fraction of the fan I am today if it weren’t for these guys fueling the fire. I eagerly await every episode. Excited about this year, guys. COYG!
I love this program and have been listening for years. I really appreciate the addition of the Arsenal Women podcasts. It made me invested in the Arsenal players, not just my American team, at the Women’s World Cup.
As a US fan this podcast is A MUST FOR US GOONERS! I eagerly await every episode and enjoy as James and Andrew deliver the latest on our beloved club. They don’t pull any punches, calling it like they see it, the good and the bad interspersed with moments which often cause my roars of laughter.
As a listener in the US, it’s hard to get the view of those on the ground who live and breathe English football. Andrew and James are a pleasure to listen to and it’s a must for anyone calling themselves an Arsenal fan.
The best football/magpie facts podcast in the universe!
My favorite podcast. Come for the football, stay for the magpies!
It’s been tough times for us Arsenal fans. This is the perfect remedy to keep you smiling when things aren’t going the way they should. Awesome is good times too. Thanks Andrew and team
Brilliant show! Hit those magpies with a speaker with a Harry Kane picture that’s playing Phil Collins music. Should do the trick. Much love!
Goodly listening, every time. Best Arsenal podcast. Wish Andrew could narrate my life. Baaaaa bye!
If u like football then u will love ArsenalFc. If u are looking for a podcast to go along with that then it has to be this one. Supporting arsenal is like walking on bridge which is hairline thick and after every setback which have been very common for the last few years listening to these guyz can take some pain off! Both of them dont go overboard with criticism which i think sets them apart from other podcasters. They try to find reasons of our failure however hilarious they might be. And the usual waffle is unlike anything u have heard anywhere else. Kudos and keep it up!
Only Arsenal podcast I listen to weekly. Brilliant stuff regarding the Arsenal and occasional off-topic, life changing, answers to life's biggest questions. Thanks Andrew and the rest of the crew. COYG!
You guys are great, always looking forward to the next episode!
It’s taken something I love (watching Arsenal) and made it even more enjoyable. I’m a better fan for having subscribed to this podcast; really, what more can you ask for in a football podcast?
Great views, great people, great podcast.
Also one of the best podcasts period. Especially the arsecast extra with gunnerblog, top level commentary!
Always look forward to a goodly greeting from Andrew & James as we learn about the latest regarding the greatest team the world has ever seen! #COYG
Love the pod, you guys are awesome! However I hate everything about Daniel Harris and his stupid pompous voice.
Great podcast that helps American fans feel connected to club and not at all alienated. Cheers.
If you’re a gooner and also like podcasts...then why aren’t you already subscribed to this?
This is quite easily the best Arsenal pod available. Andrew & James are top notch!!
It’s terrific - witty, informative, and insightful. The best Arsenal podcast out there.
I have been listening to the Arsecast for years and what Andrew and James have done to make it the best Arsenal Podcast is extraordinary. Both guys know the club inside and out and they continue to bring on guests who only enhance this. Would recommend signing up on Patreon as well. COYG!
Been listening to this podcast for years now, always look forward to it, always entertaining and insightful Keep up the good work.
As a Gunner from Middle America, I live 4541 miles away from the Emirates. I have been a fan of the club for over 20 years and it hasn’t always been easy for me to keep up with my club. Large television contracts have enabled me to see most matches but I still want to know what’s going on in between. American outlets don’t give much club news and it’s hard to know which British outlets are producing legitimate news. Arsecast has filled the gap and keeps me up to date on the day to day happenings and accurate team news. Andrew Mangan and contributors have only deepened my love for the club. Great Podcast! Thanks guys!
I'm a latecomer to this pod but it has moved to near the top of my list of late. It is a great combination of analysis and fun without the tiresome hysteria that can typify a pod dedicated to one team. Give it a listen.
The Arseblog Arsecast (on Fridays) and Arseblog Arsecast Extra (on Mondays) are indispensable listening for supporters of Arsenal FC. The Extra podcasts feature James from Gunner Blog as a weekly guest. He and Andrew review the most recent game, answer questions from listeners that range from deep soccer nerd ("are we reverting to the mean in our XG stat?") to goofy ("would you rather eat Christmas dinner every day for a year, or listen to nothing but Christmas music for a year?"), and banter about James' misadventures and Andrew's dogs. The Friday episodes feature guests such as sports writer Amy Lawrence from "The Guardian," Arsenal legend Ian Wright, hosts of podcasts about other Premier League teams, and other interesting people. Arseblog Arsecast is always informative, entertaining, and frequently quite funny. Highest recommendation!
Shouldve posted this a long time ago. Lol. If you are a Gooner, there are plenty podcasts around. But this is genuinely better than any by a mile. Keep up the good work! 🙏🏼🙌
Andrew, James, and guests do a great job of analyzing matches and all of the behind-the-scenes speculations thoroughly, realistically, all while letting their passion for the club come through. I look forward to every episode.
This pod is a never miss for me, and I listen to it every morning on my commute. It’s the best way to keep up with the squad and the only way to be in the know on where we’re headed as a team. Very insightful and entertaining.
If you’re an Arsenal fan and not listening to this, you’re making a big mistake twice a week.
Arseblog and Gunnerblog ruined other sports pods for me because no other pod comes close! Keep up the good work!
Great conversation and analysis of the gunners. COYG!
Best football podcast around!!!
Very well done 'cast. Both are seasoned veterans as far as covering the club with their knowledge and insights. As good as anything out there for the Gooner. COYG.
Week after week, this is the ONE podcast you can listen to without wanting to A) kill yoursel B) kill someone else. It has all the passion that is Goonerdom but very very litle of the arseholiness of other Arsenal podcasts. Props to Andrew (and James on the Extra). Top job.
Number one podcast for laughs, Arsenal analysis, and more. Consistent and superb always.
The best podcast for all things Arsenal. I feel like I could drink beers and talk Arsenal with the host Andrew for hours, even if he is a Ramsey fan boy (so am I). And his cohost James is a funny guy with good analysis. But just like with most Arsenal fans you won't always agree with everything they say (like the occasional Ozil dig, and constant Mustafi jabs). They have great guests on the show with inside information on the club. As an American listener you will have to get used to the way they pronounce some words. Personally I enjoy it. One episode for your Monday commute to work and one episode for your commute home Friday. This podcast is like my time clock for punching in and out of the weekend. Thanks and #COYG PS I hope this review helps on a not so goodly morning
This 5-star rating was prompted by the David Attenborough bit a couple of episodes back. Bravo. Keep it up.
Andrew and James provide the world a constant source of red and white light. Combining brilliant, original football analysis with endless tomfoolery and wit, the Arsecasts exude life. Infused with love for Arsenal and vitriol for Mike Dean, Eric Dier’s head, and the decidedly-not-special-anymore one, this podcast offers every emotion you never knew you craved feeling.
Growing up in New York I grew accustomed to listening to sports radio. It became some type of therapy, especially during a loss. So a few years back when we lost a 4-0 lead to whom ever the f&ckfaces were, I needed some avenue to relieve my aggression. So I searched for an arsenal podcast and stumbled upon the arsecast. Without sounding too dramatic, the podcast saved my life. Love the cast, look forward to it every week. Thank you for what you do.
Years back the Arseblog was how I heard about anything relevant and Arsenal related. I’ve since become a massive fan and highly rate this podcast for its humor, extreme Arsenal bias, and insights into the squad and goings on. Goodly morning blogs and James, and thank you for the years of entertainment!!
Love this podcast - it’s insightful, entertaining and funny - it’s especially goodly after an Arsenal victory!
Great arsecast, I was pissing myself over the Santacon thing. Thanks for the laugh.
This is THE flagship of Arsenal podcasts. It’s like if Elliot took a Xanax, Clive was *even* smoother, and Paul was *even more* in his pants. It’s the one you have to listen to first, and then sometimes have to listen to last to bring yourself back to a righteous sense of being. Andrew and James never over-do it, they just do it right. Pour yourself a mug of *boilk* juice, bacon-up your sandwich, jamon-up your ruffles, and get your Arse ready.
A must-listen for any Arsenal fan. Andrew and James provide a (mostly) rational view of the life of an Arsenal fan. As a fan whose local Arsenal bar is next to the local Sp**s bar, I enjoy the disdain in Andrews voice when he mentions our north London neighbors (if you feel comfortable calling someone without a home a neighbor).
Andrew and James are simply phenomenal on this podcast. Not only do they talk about the weeks goings on with Arsenal, but they have amazing and enthralling discussions about stuff and things. Love the waffle and keep up the good work.
American gooner here. Best Arsenal podcast by far! The extra cast is just as awesome!! As a fan across the pond, it helps to keep me connected to the club. Great analysis, funny as hell at times. Keep it up!
If you're a fan of Arsenal and want to know what's going on in all facets of the club this is the podcast for you. Andrew and James have great banter together and each pod is different with match previews, reviews, interviews, and more.
I have been listening for over a year and this podcast has completely transformed my arsenal fan experience. Cannot thank you enough for the amazing content published. Undeniably exceptional.
Consistently informative, funny and not hysterical. Requires listening for any Arsenal fan.
Do you like Arsenal, dogs, and quality sports reporting? Then listen to these guys because I guarantee you that there is no better Arsenal podcast than these guys.
Andrew and his various guests provide great analysis and a measured view of all things Arsenal. Especially love the weekly Arsecast Extra with James from Gunnerblog. Keep up the great work!
Really like episodes where Andrew talks to experts/fans from other countries and get their perspective on players/coach we might be getting from that particular country. Thanks for amazing blog and the podcast. Appreciate your work!!
Pun very much intended. Andrew and James continue to save my Mondays from despair by consistently providing calm and reasoned analysis with a side of imaginative waffle.
This podcast is a great listen for both the dedicated Arsenal supporter or for someone who is generally interested in football. The sheer amount of esteemed and interesting guest hosts and the frequency at which Arescast produces podcasts shows the incredible hard work of Andrew, James and anyone else involved with the pod. Every week on the arsecast there is always an engaging conversation between Andrew and football journalists, authors, and supporters about the game and culture around it. As an Arsenal fan, I can't begin to explain how great it is to be able to listen to content created by other Arsenal fans with such devotion to be able to recreate organic, interesting conversations podcast after podcast. The production is always marvelous. I could listen to Andrew and James banter forever. Thanks Arseblog!
I’ve listened to Andrew and James for a few years now, and they have good analysis and good jokes which means this is a great podcast that keeps me coming back for more analysis and more jokes.
I listen to this show twice a week. I know it's Andrew's baby, but I really like what James brings. And I sure hope this partnership continues. And that Andrew doesn't get too greedy with this new Patreon thing, and start taking more content away from us non-paying listeners, i.e. the Monday & Thursday/Friday shows.
Have to start and end my week with Arsecast!
Monday morning Arsecast Extras are an unbreakable ritual.
Andrew has become a real force in the Arsenal podcasting universe. The pod and the entire Arseblog enterprise remains classy, entertaining and informative in spite of the rising tide of dross out there.
Long time listener. Look forward to it every week. Great analysis and banter. And in a world of increasingly rash and extreme viewpoints, Andrew and James are able to bring rational and nuanced thought to the world of Arsenal and our new era post-Wenger.
Can't miss Arseblog (Andrew) and Gunnerblog (James) chat about Arsenal on Mondays. However, busy I am, i make it a point to listen.
Love the Monday/Friday shows. Great stuff!
Great mixture of cerebral discussions with comedic biases.
Required listening for all gooners on Mondays and Fridays, sometimes on Thursday, or Tuesday if James is sick, and Wednesday if there's big news
I’ve enjoyed these podcasts for years. Andrew and his band of merry journalists keep me informed and I feel part of the great arsenal community, even on the other side of the pond.
There are many reasons why I’m thankful to be a goner. This podcast is at the very top of the list.
Been listening to these guys for years now. My primary source of Arsenal news.
I’ve been listening to Andrew and James for years now. Best podcast about Arsenal period. I always look forward to the next one keep up the great work
My go-to Arsenal pod. Great commentary, not over the top, actual analysis, funny. Couldn’t ask for more.
Most episodes can usually be cut down about 15 minutes if not more due to redundancy and pointless small chat that I don’t find a point in
I’m more of a neutral and don’t really root for one team or another. Started listening to this podcast in the summer of 2017 and it’s been a weekly listen ever since. It’s funny and entertaining. - AB
Keeps me sane as a gooner in rural Montana USA.
By far the best Arsenal podcast out there!! Great job Andrew! Love it!
Some of the most in depth and thoughtful coverage of the club you can find.
Really enjoy getting two podcasts per week. High level content, planning and production plus the guests they bring in are next level compared to other Arsenal podcasts I listen to. The length of each podcast always feels like the perfect amount of time...to the point, yet thorough. And always love a bit of splash of fun at the end!
The creativity employed to make this podcast a thing of joy every listen is what stands out for me. Andrew’s originality and an abhorrence for the frivolous and mundane do not hurt as well. It’s really an aural pleasure every single episode.
Great blog. Andrew is a talented host. He brings in a lot of great journos for their takes on Arsenal in any given situation. Great sense of humor and his co host (most of the time) Is well spoken and the two of them give wonderful insight and are very engaging with the fans on social media especially Twitter. Best at 1.5 speed 😜😜
If you are - (1) An Arsenal fan & (2) You love to listen to podcasts Yes my friend, this is the place to be!!! The best source of everything Arsenal - From match reviews to in depth analysis, From baking breads to making clothes - Yes, you will find everything you need to enjoy your commute or whenever you are listening to this. The Musical genious of Andrew Mangan and the Bizarre self harms done to himself by James McNicholas, everything will enchant you and you will be entertained. But on a more serious note - This is the podcast which will help you through the most difficult defeats and bashings which these days Arsenal finds themselves in more often than not. But worry not, the light end of the tunnel shines ever so brightly now and I, like Andrew and James bid you a GOODLY WELCOME to this podcasting journey. Remember - "The Future is Bright, The future is Red & White"
As an American gooner, this is the best podcast to keep me connected to the team and all the going ons across the pond.
I've tried a few different Arsenal podcasts, and this my favorite, hands down. James and Andrew have an easy wit and humor that so many other podcasters try desperately to imitate, but simply don't have. The highlight of my Monday commute.
Really is a must listen for any Gooner. Humorous, intelligent(ish), good insight, and very fan focused. Always listen every Monday and Friday.
Blogs and Co. do an outstanding job keeping us laughing, entertained and informed with clever analysis and lightheartedness. They consistently produce excellent content and always with the fans in mind. If you love Arsenal and you can’t wait until our next game then these podcasts will keep you going and happy all year round! Cheers and thanks guys!
Andrew Mangan is an Arsenal legend, gotta hear his stuff
This is an Arsenal FC podcast that is so well done. Living in America as an ex-pat this really fills the void of talking all things Arsenal. It's fun, insightful and extremely well produced. Two stars Andrew and James are definitely worthy of Five STARS! #COYG #GoodlyMornings4Eva
Always entertaining, informative and analytical. Simply the best football podcast out there. I feel sorry for supporters of other clubs who can't bask in the quality to which both Arseblog and Gunnerblog provide.
this podcast is amazing every monday and friday morning I listen to this on the way to work. Such a great way to start and end the week, and a fantastic way to stay sane in these trying times.
Required listening for all Arsenal fans. There's no better place to get such an entertaining, insightful and honest account of what's happening at our club. We all know change is coming to Arsenal. This podcast puts it all in context with good humour, great guests and most of all, hope.
Maybe the first Arsenal podcast, and still the best. I always appreciate Andrew’s open-mindedness: he obviously has opinions but the show really ponders all thing Arsenal-related in an intelligent way.
Listen every week, read the blog every morning, even through the interluls. Funny, insightful, honest, and an array of great guests. Best podcast for the best soccer club! Alon
The Arsecast extra is what makes my Monday morning commutes bearable. I was a bit thrown off the first time I heard the Friday podcast because I was expecting James but they’ve grown on me.
The best podcast hands down.
Exceptional podcast, a must-hear if you're a diehard (or even a casual) Gooner. Professional, well-balanced, engaging. Keep up the good work!
The only source for newz and bantz if you’re a Gooner, anywhere in the world. I’ve been reading Arseblog religiously since 2010 all the way in sunny California. The podcast just raises the bar in Arsenal content. We laugh, we cry, we punch the walls—but no matter what we support the lads through thick and thin!
Great podcast. No dumb skits, regular content. No filler, keep up the good work!
When Arsenal have a poor result I turn off all Arsenal related media until the next match. No MOTD, no Arsenal twitter, not even FIFA. Arseblog is the only thing I keep up with good or bad. When it's good you just want to join in the fun of a blogpost or the podcast. When it's bad, Andrew's words and voice almost make sense of the madness around this team. At the very least, they give this tired Gooner some reason to smile.
Although I follow Arsenal, and football in general, much less closely and madly, than I used to, the Arseblog and the weekly podcast still remain daily and weekly habits. The podcast is excellent with good mix of humor, Arsenal insights, and often chats about wider football issues than just Arsenal and a wide-array of guests. Overall, a great, well-produced show of high quality.
Thoughtful, knowledgeable about football and the club, funny, smart, great guests...you get the picture. One of the few podcasts of any kind I never miss. Highly recommended
Don’t call yourself an Arsenal fan without subscribing and listening to Arseblog. Enough said!
Probably the most thorough and comprehensive arsenal related podcast out there. They cover loads of interesting stuff and chat with people from all around the footballing world. They offer some of the best analysis of what is often a thoroughly confusing club to support.
A sumptuous delight.
Just makes the morning commute easier when James and Andrew talk about falcons or breakfast sandwiches or Arsenal. Has made this year of residency a bit more cheerful. Thank you for the best podcast I listen to.
Solid commentary and analysis, plus insightful answers to questions you didn't even know you wanted answered. Plus, I need to get my hands on some Jamon Ruffles now. I'm curious.
Congratulations on the best 200th episode of an arsenal themed football podcast featuring James from gunner blog ever!
No better way to keep up with your Gunner news and get through the day than listening to this podcast!
Hope u have a happa bathday!
Despite living in San Diego, this blog has kept me connected to the arsenal more than anything else. With all the highs and the lows of each season, Andrew and James have helped me feel connected to the team and greater fan base. Listening to the weekly waffle on the Podcasts always makes my day better. Whether it’s Andrew lashing out his rage towards Jose Mourinho or James describing his recent accident/injury it’s always good to listen to them 😃😂
Listened for years - my go-to Arsenal podcast! Keep up the great work!
Hands down the best Arsenal FC podcast!
Arsecast and Arsecast Extra are two things that I thoroughly enjoy and look forward to every week. Andrew Mangan and James McNicholas have excellent chemistry, and produce a podcast that is second to none. If you are an Arsenal Football Club fan there is no better listen.
I am a Arsenal fan and I love this podcast. I travel to work and I can’t wait for Monday’s and Friday’s! Keep up the good work!
Andrew is a deeply insightful host and selects tremendous guests. The Arsecast and the extra are highlights of my week regardless of how Arsenal are doing.
Generally a very good podcast and provides an interesting insight into Arsenal. I would like to see more interactions with us the fans via Skype etc. There are times however where the conversation very rarely touches on football or arsenal. A conversation that was primarily about a lawnmower for near 10mins was more than I could handle.
Stumbled onto this years too late but just an added tonic for your FFP / #WengerOut Arsenal woes.
Hands down the best Arsenal Football Club podcast out there. If you're not into that kind of thing then I don't know what to tell you.
The Arsecast, and especially the Arsecast Extra on Monday's, has been a part of my week for years now. Andrew is an excellent interviewer, a passionate but reasonable fan, and a man with a great podcasting voice. His rapport with James from the weekly extra is better than that of any other podcasting team I've heard, and I am a longtime avid podcast listener. Their analysis, and especially their humor are often the highlight of my dreary Monday mornings. Being in a time zone where it is hard to catch every Arsenal game, the podcast is a great way to keep up and feel involved in the greater Gooner community. The production quality is also higher than many others, including podcasts from institutions with far more production resources at their disposal. This guy/These guys are great. Keep up the good work!
A must listen for any Arsenal fan. I especially love the Extra released on Mondays.
After listening for years, I finally decided to write a review to elevate the jamon rating! One of the best sports podcasts around - albeit Arsenal-centric - but can always rely on them for insighful analysis of the games, great guests and plenty of smack talk sandwiched between jamon ruffles. Would definitely recommend. Keep up the good work!
The first podcast I'd recommend for any Arsenal fan, and some neutrals as well. Funny, intelligent, and thoughtful, pod speaks honestly and independently about our beloved Arsenal. Host is a pro at moderating conversation and not letting topics get stale. An elixir for all the loud, crude, semi-professional trolls and outrage merchants you see on many Arsenal-related YouTube channels. A brilliant companion to watching the games each week, sometimes I can't tell which I enjoy more, the games or the pod. Well done, Blogs.
"I know what you did last summer" was amazing insight into Arsenal's operations and reassured me I wasn't insane.
Level: listening to Arsecast chanting "goner Gooner GOONER" progressively louder until Dennis Bergkamp's face appears in the flames to shed light on the secrets of the world.
Been listening to blogs for some time. Great show, very trustworthy and excellent insight into AFC. If you're like me who can't get enough AFC, you need to start listening.
In a world of echo chambers Andrew's Arseblog podcast stands alone and provides insight that's isn't merely regurgitated narratives but actual well thought out perspectives. I start my Friday commute always with this podcast. Highly recommend. -NJ Arsenal
The greatest ever podcast
Great podcast all Arsenal with past and current topics.
I needed to track Arsenal news more closely, and I have a long drive, so this podcast is ideal. I'd say it's as great a podcast as Wenger is a terrible negotiator! I'm looking for this to be my shelter in the storm that will be the 2017-18 season.
Too often arsenal take the L and there is no better place to turn than here.
Love this podcast! I can get my Arsenal fix!
Andrew, arseblog, is a must listen if you are an Arsenal supporter. Even if I wasn't an Arsenal supporter I would find his work entertaining. Andrew is funny, down right honest, and weird as hell...in a good way. His relationship and partnership with James, gunnerblog, makes the podcast even more compelling.
Others just don't compare.
See subject line
Love the show, thanks for what you guys do. Cheers from Southern California!
A couple times a year some Chelsea or ManU tw*t gives me a fake sympathetic look and then says "I don't know how you do it... supporting Arsenal..." at which point I usually wax lyrical about how I'm in it for the quality of play, and I don't have the sense of entitlement that we should win every year. (100% BS) However the real reason I can survive as an Arsenal fan is listening to Arsenlog, and Arsecast Extra twice a week. The pod gives me hope when hope is permissible, and it lends perspective and commiseration when Arsenal do horrific, terrible, mind numbing things... repeatedly. Most importantly, it's funny as hell. Do it. Do it now.
Recently found this podcast. From insights and truthful opinions, to absolutely hilarious banter on the questionable celebration of new man Kolasinac, it keeps me entertained + informed at work & home. Cheers from the USA.
Simply the best Arsenal podcast available.
It's real quality
Witty, informative, nutty, hilarious. You need this in your life if you're a thoughtful, open-minded, don't take yourself too seriously Gooner! Look forward to the podcasts and can't start my day without checking the blog. Keep up the great work lads!
This is a wonderfully made podcast, and Andrew (and James for the arsecast extras) walk the tightrope of providing an experience that is both fun and heartfelt, as well as critical and informative for the listener. Their passion is obvious, but so too is their disdain for sensational media coverage, and their feeling of responsibility for providing a rational picture and citing sources to support their claims. Sure there is a lot of waffle in the off-season, but that is honestly a relief that helps one cope with the transfer season. Can't recommend this highly enough, keep up the great work guys!
This feed is the best soccer podcast I have come across. It is funny, fun and topical. It is my favorite podcast overall.
You guys are absolute heroes to me. On days like these in mid to late summer, it's a true joy to listen to you guys pour your hearts out about Arsenal. Please never stop sharing your podcasts. In the midst of a difficult time for this club we love so dearly, you've become a blessing to fans who eat, sleep and breathe Arsenal. Thank you! Cheers!
Easily my favorite podcast, as soon as it is in my feed I jump in and listen to it, great content, fun banter, and reliable news source. COYG
If you are an Arsenal fan you HAVE to be listening to the podcast. Great knowledge and insight, excellent humor, informative guests! If you haven't listened yet, subscribe today and hang on to your winkle and goonies for a great gooner ride!
Andrew and James offer great insight and great fun. It's tricky to find football pods that aren't impossibly serious, not to mention far too bro-y. I look forward to Arsecast/Arsecast Extra even when Arsenal lose because I know they'll share my frustration without going overboard. The Arsecast has consistently great guests. Having seen them in NY, I can confirm they are just as funny in person. Cheers guys!
Love the podcast. Must for any arsenal fan with a desire for more things arsenal!
If you are a true Gooner, this is a must listen. Andrew and James are true fans and love the club but are also humorously honest about the shortcomings that we have. I enjoy laughing and fuming as I listen along. I look forward to another season of sharing my pain with this pod!
Fantastic podcast. Always. Arsenal + Comedy galore. Must watch…err….i mean listen. Andrew and James are an amazing combo. bye-bye
THE best Arsenal podcast there is out there. Fair, funny, relevant and enjoyable. Best way to hear about Arsenal news, hear what other Arsenal fans are thinking after a game, and reflect after positive/negative results. Thanks Andrew (and James)!
They bring me to smile. And, seriously, Andrew is a great guy who makes excellent content and gives it to us for free. James is also a guy.
British lad living in the States, huge Arsenal fan. The podcast is excellent I haven't missed a single episode -makes me feel like I never left. #COYG
Top top banter between James and Andrew! Real honest views on The Arsenal and all related matters including marmalade taste sessions!
Love the q and a. Love the non overreacting. This is a staple of my Mondays - this podcast, self loathing, trepidation about the latest Arsenal injury, and food - my Monday's.
The Arsecast and the Arsecast extra are the most insightful and entertaining source for Arsenal FC related news and discussion. You won't find any of the typical vitriol and nonsense here. The sketches in the Friday 'cast are excellent too. Andrew, and James, are hilarious (and insightful) in the extra. Top, top, top, top, top quality!
I've enjoyed this podcast for years. Great interviews and commentary about Arsenal. Always funny and clever. This is a must for any Arsenal fan. Others need not apply. Chef recommends.
Great podcast Informative and funny
Andrew is the most down to earth, humble man for the fantastic artist he is. I might be a little drunk while I write this but I think my dreams are narrated by that soothing Irish accent. Then I hear James screeching in that "they're after me lucky charms" voice in the Arsecast Extra and I wake up, sweating, heart beating too fast. But then I go about my business, hoping it will go away if I just listen to another episode. Then it happens all over again. I love it.
A great twice a week listen, even if the weeks match hasn't gone as hoped.
Best Arsenal podcast out there.
Like having imaginary friends with lots of swearing.
I listen to Arsecast and Arsecast Extra weekly. No better way to keep abreast of Arsenal FC action, but also great fun to listen to.
Entertaining, fun, good-humored, at times absurdist, but ultimately winsome and insightful discussion of Arsenal in our perennial stumble to 3rd/4th place. Cheers!
Never miss an episode. Andrew is a legend. Gives me a reason to look forward to my Monday morning commute!
Best Arsenal podcast
Been listening for a while now (couple of years), look forward to each new episode on Mondays and Fridays. What's going to happen now we are in the Europa Cup?! Keep up the great work Andrew (and James)!
An American Arsenal supporter, I feel closer to the club thanks to Arseblog. Always timely and usually hilarious, the Friday Arsecast and Monday Arsecast Extra are fun and insightful. I'd give 10 stars if I could. @Jmcclintock
Reliable twice-weekly Arsenal and Premier League content that blends humor, insight, tactics and more. As the profile of this podcast as grown, high-profile guests like Ian Wright and David Ornstein will join and have open and honest conversations regarding Arsenal and football at large. Andrew Mangan truly is at the top of him profession. As a football fan based in the USA, this podcast has helped me feel more connected to my beloved Arsenal than any other media. For any fans of Arsenal anywhere in the world, do yourself a favor and subscribe.
I listen to Andrew and James every week and always look forward to it. Andrew tends to provide unfiltered emotion in his analysis, while James is a bit more cerebral. Plenty of laughs and good arsenal commentary.
Look forward to every episode.
Puts the pain in perspective!
Have been enjoying the regular old Arsecast on Friday for years. Good monologue, great interview, and some funny stuff in between. All in less than an hour! Perfect formula. Its a weekend ritual for me. At first I felt the same about the Arsecast Extra on Mondays but over the past season and a half I have found myself downloading it less and less. First, the length of the Extra has grown which personally I have found make the shows more tedious. Also, it would be nice to have a genuine difference of opinions on the show every so often. Perhaps having another co host now and again would freshen things up a bit. But like I said, the Arsecast on Friday is still worthwhile.
If one is an Arsenal supporter, then this is A MUST LISTEN TO PODCAST!!! Andrew & James are best what they do and I really appreciate their work!!! Very Goodly Indeed!!!!
A well put together pod from a very interesting individual. Great for Arsenal fans and a wonderful inside view for what it's like to be a passionate fan.
I am a total football newbie in the US. I love this podcast. I learn a ton and enjoy the humor and knowledge that is delivered.
Great humor, great insight for Gooners
Amazing for any football fan, especially Gooner's. Great commentary and comedic slant on sports journalism from a fan's fan.
Andrew and James are awesome.
Andrew and James, congrats lads you've made a classic pod. Ian Wright for Arsenal board!!!
Some good like Giroud's hair and some bad like diaby's knee. All in all this is an Alex oxlade chamberlain type of podcast.
Arseblog is a must listen to if you are an Arsenal fan. Hilarious at times and always insightful, Andrew (and James on the Arsecast extra) are just great. Thanks guys and keep it up.
Andrew and James have a wonderful chemistry, Andrew's separate interviews are fun but incisive, and both shows offer both the casual fan and most ardent supporter nearly everything they need.
I listen every week, great to listen on my commute. Great to hear Arsenal fans talking sense.
This is the podcast I always listen to first. Great insight, and well thought out responses to the current affairs of AFC. Has a great mixture of serious and humorous discussion.
It's for Gooners, but if you appreciate football banter, could transcend club allegiances. Legendary quality for heavily biased independent punditry. Arseblog is among the foremost sports pods on earth. Consistent content delivery induces junky-like devotion.
Andrew and James give insightful, interesting, and entertaining coverage of Arsenal every Monday by recapping the week and discussing questions sent in by the listeners. On Fridays, Andrew looks forward to the weekend with pregame previews along with special guests, interviews, and much more. Perfect Arsenal podcast.
Listen to every arsecast that involves gunnerblog. These 2 chaps have the best banter and know there stuff about Arsenal and football!
The best football podcast.
Arsecast and everything else that Arseblog and team do are fantastic resources for All Arsenal fans.
Thanks guys. Loved the Wrighty show. Top gooner
Arsenal often brings me sadness, but these podcasts are really great pick-me-ups in both victory and defeat. Thank you for everything Andrew!
Still as great as always! Great job Andrew!
Been listening for a few years, and decided to add in a review after the March 24's excellent Podcast interview with sports writer Donald McRae on a whole range of topics well beyond just Arsenal. Of course, the focus of the Podcast generally is the football club, and Andrew (and James) do an amazing job keeping us informed, entertained and linked to the scene in the UK. But Andrew also knows this the Gunners are just a sports club and his insightful interview with Mr McRae exemplified that from our love of the team we can be led to thinking about more important issues. Highly recommended.
A must listen for any Arsenal/football/soccer fan. Andrew and James are insightful, balanced and funny. Andrew also has interesting guests on Fridays. It's two of the best hours of my week. Always enjoyable (even when Arsenal's performances arent...).
Andrew and James do an incredible job with the podcast. If you call yourself a gooner you need to give these guys a listen. A measured but passionate analysis of everything Arsenal.
Just listen to it, it's not that hard.
Great podcast one of the only ones I listen to regularly. Arsecast extra is especially good
Excellent discussion of EPL footy from ARS fan perspective. Lucid, logical and literate examination of the club and its place in the world. Give a listen even if, like me, you're a fan of a different club.
Best Arsenal podcast and one of best soccer podcasts. Been listening weekly for over 8 years .
Andrew is adorable and although he loves the Arsenal not frightened to be critical and liberal use of sarcasm and some rude words - wit and wisdom and often great guests but not always
Brilliant stuff. I love listening after a win. After a loss isn't so bad either. Good insight.
Fantastic podcast. Really well done, but truly an arsenal podcast. If u r a spurs fan, u might want to skip it. Other than that great. GO ARSENAL!!!!
Brilliant podcast. Even in the most depressing moments of the season, brings a little much-needed humor and humility.
I enjoy the perspective they bring to all things Arsenal. They avoid hyperbole and deliver information and entertainment with a sense of humor.
I have been listenting to this podcast for years, and I'm disappointed that I had not yet rated it here! This podcast--inlcluding the Arsecast and the Arsecast Extra--is superb. Informative, witty banter keeps my Gooner spirits up even when we don't play as well as we should. Also, you know, he's right about dolphins.
Top top top Arse
By far the best Arsenal podcast out there!!!!!!!!!
The arsecasts on Monday and Friday are the best part of my work week. James and Andrew do a great job of breaking down everything Arsenal with a lot of humor in between. Must listen to if you are a gooner!!!!!
Far and away the top Arsenal podcast around. Informative and insightful.
Thoroughly enjoyable, keep it up Mr. Blogs!
One of the based Arsenal podcasts in the Goonerverse! I absolutely love the discussions, the guests, and the humor. Keep up the awesome work! COYG!
If you're an arsenal fan, and enjoy podcasts, this is your dream come true. Funny, articulate, all around entertaining host(s), and guests. My work week wouldn't be complete without this podcast. Keep up the good work, COYG.
These guys live and breathe Arsenal! Conversation is always intelligent, funny and often profane.
A top quality podcast that is funny and provides in depth footballing analysis for Arsenal fans. Arsenal may let you down season after season, if only they were as reliable as Arseblog for providing top top quality. Well done blogs.
Too much Arsenal, not enough Arse
It's simply the best, I begin and end my week with wonderful commentary and all things Arsenal. To quote Blogs, It's F*ckin' Excellent!!
The silky smooth tone of Mr. Mangan and the comedian-esque ramblings (ramblings in a good way) of James is just a great way to start my week and compile all my Arsenal news and info into an entertaining and easily digestible format. Keep up the good work, gentlemen, because we all certainly appreciate it, even us yanks all the way in Minnesota.
The best Arsenal podcast this side of the solar system
Great to here Arsenal supporters who are funny, non bias unless it's Tottenham and just entertaining. It's legit and recommend for goooooonnnneeerrrrsssss!!!!
Hands down the most entertaining and informative Podcast available on the Gunners.
These guys are hilarious and better than that they're informed and professional (mostly) in their weekly delivery of Arsenal news. Monday mornings are made better by the Arsecast.
Serious analysis mixed with serious silliness. You'll know the team better and you'll laugh a lot. You really can't go wrong.
If you're an Arsenal fan, you have to subscribe to this pod.
Its a thoughtful and entertaining podcast. Nothing additional left to be said. It covers all the bases, and all that.
Fantastic podcast. Easily the best out there for arsenal fans
For me, the center of Arsenal fandom circles around the Arsecast. If you support the Gunners, this is the required podcast. Beyond the 'usual waffle' from the host (Arseblogger aka Andrew Mangan), the guests are all germane to what's happening at the time, and Mangan draws great conversation out of them every time. And the Arsecast Extra, even when getting a bit wacky, debriefs the weekend's matches well.
Great podcast, loads of interesting pieces and analysis
only started listening in recent weeks despite following arsenal for a long time. lots of humors and insights. wish i started listening from its beginning. talk about wasted years....
My favorite podcast. Intelligent about football, but also about life. And funny, often.
Simply the best soccer podcast available.
I have 20 or so podcasts in my subscription list and this is the first one I go to. Just the best.
It's hard not to wake up on Monday morning and immediately think, "great! I get to listen to Andrew and James chat about absurd nothings (and sometimes Arsenal)." I love the banter, high-quality production, and genuine, relevant assessment of my favorite club. They often do live podcasts, trivia, and special-edition shows. The Arsecast and Arsecast Extra are about the best sports podcasts around.
If you are an Arsenal supporter, you definitely need to subscribe to this podcast!
My fav blog / podcast out there. Andrew and James are Witty and informative on all topics Arsenal and also provide great debate on various other topics like jam, dolphins , Phil Collins etc Take a listen and you will fall in love with these guys. Andrew also does a solo podcast on Friday's that is equally delicious. Keep it up boys. See u in NYC next time around.
5 years ago, looking for an EPL club to support, looked closer at Arsenal, saw the manager, players, history, and this blog!! LOL funny, smart, practical, really makes me proud to be a fan, knowing this guy and the people around the site, support the club.
Best football podcast! If you follow the Arsenal and you don't listen religiously, you should consider turning in your supporter's card. Thanks Andrew!
DUDE. This podcast is a must for any Arsenal supporter. It's typically very funny and a great listen. Solid analysis combined with a good laugh. Download it, make it one of your favorites. It's totally awesome.
Highly recommend. Funny and top notch analysis
I am lazy by nature, so have delayed posting this review for a couple years actually. I love listening to Andrew (and James) and play the podcasts first thing in the morning Monday's and Friday's. A great way to get ready for and go to work. Keep up the good work boys!!! California loves you.
It's also quite humorous.
As an American who loves football, there are four podcasts I listen to on a regular basis: Men in Blazers, The Football Ramble, Second Captains, and Arsecast (both the Original and the Extra). And although I am biased toward all things Arsenal, this is by far my favorite podcast to listen to, and not just football related. I cannot go a week without listening to it, sometimes twice. Each week there are two shows: the original Arsecast, which is normally a look at the upcoming game at the weekend with guest interviews, and the Arsecast Extra, which has an analysis of the past week's game(s) with Gunnerblog and Arseblog, and with a more laidback and comical atmosphere to the show, unless we just suffered a bitter defeat, then it becomes quite somber. If you are an Arsenal fan, you need to listen to this podcast and even if you are not, you would probably still enjoy the Arsecast Extra. I cannot recommend this podcast enough!
Give this podcast a chance. Football needs more independent media coverage.
I love you...and thanks for making my commute bearable two days out of the week!
Far and away the best Arsenal pod around. Intelligent, fair, and hilarious.
Brilliant football/Arsenal podcast. Never a dull moment, except when there's an international break...
They truly love Arsenal. Great podcast with solid banter
The Arsecast and Arsecast Extra are quite simply the best Arsenal podcasts around. Blogs does a great job of being level-headed and having perspective as well as being entertaining. 5 Stars all day long!
A bit vulgar sometimes but highly enjoyable podcast I rarely miss.
Best Arsenal podcast around.
Laughs. Football. Arsenal. Top of my podcasting list.
I love both of the Arsecast regular and Arsecast extra
A must have for any true arsenal fan.
As someone who has never written a review before, I felt it necessary to do so for Arsecast, which delivers outstanding, top-notch content on a week-to-week basis. If you're an Arsenal fan anywhere in the world, this is a MUST add to your weekly routine, especially if you hate Mondays!
I listen to a lot of football podcasts Arsenal related and general ones, but arseblog seems to be the best one yet. Most of his and James comments seem level headed which is quite refreshing in the age of Robbie savage and Michael Owen.
If you love Arsenal, this is the podcast for you.
Keep up the great work. COYG
This is an excellent podcast if your are Arsenal supporter. The host are hilarious, informative, and have great chemistry. The show is entertaining regardless of whether or not Arsenal win the match. My brother even enjoys the show despite not even being a soccer (football) fan.
Great entertainment for Arsenal fans!
Arseblog is brilliant. I read his blog every day, and I don't miss a podcast. Simply put the best football podcast out there. Absolutely hilarious as well.
Entertaining, intelligent, and creative week after week
This is the best Arsenal podcast around - and it isn't close. Andrew is always the two things any host needs to be: informative and entertaining. His "waffle" is better than some of the "analysis" on ESPNFC, Sky, etc.
I'm not one to write reviews but after over 5 years of listening to the Arsecast and even more years of daily reading of the Arseblog, I figured I would say my piece. Arseblog and the Arsecast have done an excellent job of producing quality material that both engages and entertains! To be able to do so at such a sustained high level year after year is unbelievable. If only our boys in red could keep such consistency! But to keep from being too long winded, listen to the Arsecast and Arsecast Extra, very informative, well produced, with enough waffle to keep it light and fun when the season goes to sh!te again!
This podcast is the best antidote against the usual end of season disappointments and desperation.Good humor, insightful info, quite professional. Thank you Andrew and guests.
Highly entertaining for any football fan. News, match reviews, and guests presented from an Arsenal point of view, but there is plenty of hilarity that will appeal to football fans in general. Arseblog (joined on Mondays by James from Gunnerblog) deliver serious football commentary with an at-times sarcastic slant.
A pragmatic, level headed gooner and all round nice guy. Love this podcast.
This is an absolutely fantastic podcast, which is no surprise since the blog is also fantastic. Always interesting, always funny. If you love football/soccer or Arsenal, give it a listen!!
Excellent stuff. Keep up the good work.
Despite doing a weekly blog and two podcasts, Andrew somehow manages to come up with original content every week. Funny, uniquely insightful, informative. Recently voted the best Premiere league sports blog, Andrew always seems to attract the most interesting and knowledgeable guests. An absolute must read, must listen, for any serious Arsenal Fan.
It's a testament to the times that I've taken my time away from the official website of Arsenal, to instead spend a couple minutes to promote a fantastic blog that is indeed the highlight of this Arsenal season -Andrew Mangan has consistently made both humerous and insightful podcasts that take a look at both the highs and lows of supporting Arsenal Football Club. Arsecast, already fantastic, was made even better with the addition of a one Mr. McNicholas on Mondays to analyze the weekend's results, be they good or, as is common in March/April, less than good. If you support Arsenal, if you think things that are funny are worthy of your time, or if you just need some much needed catharsis towards the end of another season, then take the time to listen to Arsecast.
The Arsecast extra is funny, cathartic, insightful, and a bit silly. If you're an Arsenal fan, there's really no reason why you shouldn't be listening
I think this is pretty much the definitive Arsenal podcast. I'm a huge fan of both Extra and the regular Arsecasts. Andrew is level-headed, sufficiently biased, and effectively creative and it all shines through. The crew is reliable, likable and has plenty of credibility as one of (if not the) top and essential Arsenal media sources. Bravo, gents.
Frankly speaking, I've been looking for a decent Arsenal podcast, that it's not too extreme nor too noisy! The podcast contains a mixture of comedy, anger, frustration and making fun of Spuds! I feel the analysis are interesting and logical. If you're an Arsenal fan, download this bloody podcast and if you're not an Arsenal fan, you can still listen to this podcast! Cheerio
Love the work they do. I know They don't read this reviews but, Andrew-James combination is what every other podcaster out there wishing to be. I love Arsecastextra and "The Angriest Man on Internet, The Usual Waffle" 😂😂. I'm on the verge of 3rd year of listening and wishing for many more years. Keep up the good work.
If you support Arsenal, this should be your number one podcast to listen to. I can’t imagine going through a Monday or Friday without listening to the Arsecast, or the Arsecast Extra. They provide very well thought out analysis, news, and comic relief. This is an essential subscription to have for any gunners out there!
Any and all Arsenal fans should listen to this podcast. Andrew consistently invites guests that have great insight into the club and has the knack to run a show that is constantly entertaining, whether we are top of the league or inevitably being knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern. On Mondays he and James from @gunnerblog keep up great banter as they discuss the fixtures of the week past and of those upcoming. Never overrun by transfer rumors or stories generated by the media, they provide Arsenal news from the perspective and with the passion of true Gunners (i.e. "Leave him down and play on!!"). This is the best football podcast out there, I listen every week.
I am an Arsenal supporter, and when they inevitably disappoint like this past Sunday vs. Man Utd’s youth team, the podcast helps to get through the dark times.
my only go-to for informative, historical, funny, serious, british whit of everything arsenal...if only the arsenal gentleman would provide a guest appearance
I've listened to several other football podcasts but Arseblog is by far the best. It has it all; drama, suspense, and the unexpected. Its hilarious.
Hilarious and entertaining. Good for non Arsenal fans as well. Best part of my week.
Every episode is a delight. The only podcast I listen to every week.
Every Monday and Friday, even in a loss, Blogs makes it better.
If you are an arsenal fan and have one of those sense of humor thingies plus common sense, this is the podcast for you! The fact I think I have a sense of humor and common sense probably means I don't but you know...
Besides Arsene Wenger, the arsecast is the most consistent thing about being an arsenal fan. Sundays and thursdays are better because it means when i wake up the next day, ARSECAST!
This podcast is fantastic- Andrew and James do a great job. As an American Arsenal fan still learning the intricacies of the game, this podcast has provided wonderful insight into the team for me. They have a good sense of humor but also know what they're taking about. Highly recommended!
they're not terrible. So, I guess they're good,right? It's like this w... w... wictory thing, I can used to it.
This is one of the best footballing podcasts around, and I listen to a fair amount of them. Makes you laugh so much that you tinkle a little, at the same time very knowledgeable about Arsenal, football, and many current stories and issues in the game.
Ok as an Arsenal supporter I am a little biased, but after reading the blog daily for years, this podcast just takes the whole experience over the top. It's insightful, it's witty, and laugh out loud funny.
Straight up, Arsecast and Arsecast extra are required listening on a weekly basis for me, as an Arsenal fan. The Arsecast gives a proper dose of serious football discussion while the Arsecast extra cuts to the chase and adds a decent bit of humor. I love the hosts because they are fair-minded and honest, but never shy away from making sure we know they are 100% Gooner. Oh yeah, and Tottenham still blows.
I love this podcast! Brilliant from a western Brit as my Irish friend calls him. Makes the dog walks pass so fast!
After every Arsenal game I find the subsequent wait for a new Arsecast the most anticipated and grueling time in my life. But the space between makes them all the more better. Great show with a mix of what you need to know and entertainment. Great podcast!!
I've been listening to the Arsecast for a few years now. I liked the fun intelligent conversation immediately, I was hooked by the goofiest question and answer mail bag of any media (social or otherwise), but I really admire those rare moments when something goes beyond the rivalries of sports and Arseblog is the voice of compassion and empathy. Keep it up!
These two who do the Arsecast Extra are the absolute best! The remind me of young Tim Sherwoods! Brilliant opinions and cutting edge analysis.. KETCHUP IN THE CUPBOARD! WHERE ELSE ARE YOU GOING TO GET THIA INFORMATION?!
The only podcast I listen to. Tried a bunch of others. Nah. This is the one if you're a Gooner. Informative, passionate and funny in all the right proportions. TGPTEL.
This is seriously a must listen to any football fan, not just Gunners. Funny yet factual, statistical insider information. Subscribe!
Hilarious and knowledgeable but, at the same time, clever and analytical. For Arsenal fans who know a lot, Mangan and his cohorts usually say what you're thinking.
Hilarious. And solid analysis
Great attitude, deep knowledge of the team and league, funny as fook. Thanks!
These guys are hilarious. I tune in at work after every single game. Check out Football Rambler also.
This podcast is simply excellent. Andrew Mangan always provides insightful commentary on the club with a nice touch of humor. The Arsecast Extras with Mangan and James McNicholas are particularly good as the pair have great chemistry and leave never you with a dull moment. My only complaint is that I'm always left wanting more! Basically, if you're an Arsenal supporter and you're not listening to this podcast you're a right John Terry.
Monday's and Friday's are my favorite days of the week because of this podcast. Keep up the good work!
As a newer Arsenal fan over the past 2 years, I really can’t say a bad word about this podcast. Andrew (@arseblog) has done a top notch job of relaying Arsenal news and analysis of every game and all of the relevant information that goes with it (injuries, squad rotation, manager critique, etc etc.) His solo show on Fridays always have good guests and the little homemade segments between parts of the Friday show are quite enjoyable. Jeff (@gunnerblog) feels like a natural second mic on Mondays and is just as insightful regarding Arsenal happenings. I really enjoy the Q/A segment of Monday’s show where the questions go from precision, critical questions regarding Arsenal to complete bollocks. With all of that said, I give this review a 5/5. Hopefully their rampant egos are adequately filled and that they now smell good because of this review; I felt very fulfilled writing it for them. Cheers!
The gold standard for Arsenal podcasts. A way funnier podcast than it needs to be, the Monday reviews with Gunnerblog and Friday previews with a impressive casr of rotating guests make this an absolute must-listen for all Gooners and any soccer fan who enjoys a good listen.
The salve for all things Gooner.
One of the few podcasts that I wait for each week. Not only does Andrew present one of the more thoughtful, intelligent voices on Arsenal you can find, he does two shows a week (Arsecast Extra being an extra special treat with James Gunnerblog), has great guests, and the production quality is very high. Really, really well done.
Order arrived on time as promised with no questions asked. Highly recommended!!!
Amazing mix of well thought out and insightful analysis and humor.
Looking for a Arsenal related podcast? Good. Look no further. This one IS the one you want! Cheers.
Amazing podcast that breaks down everything that happened in every game along with the happenings whether it be transfers or intel within the club are discussed which is great. A consolation podcast when we lose, i have to listen to every episode or i feel like im not doing my gooner due diligence. Thank you guys for making it a riot, keep on and DAS ARSENAL.
I've been listening to the arsecast since the first episode and it continues to be a weekly ritual for me. I recommend it to any Arsenal fan looking for quality analysis and interviews!
i tried the football purists, that's where i started but those guys would disappear. What i love about Carl is there when he has to .. never late , sometimes i get too optimistic with arsenal's chance of winning everything when emotions run high, but then you guys help to get things into perspective. Carl's sense of humor also gets a 4 star from me .. P.S Carl is name of the podcaster, is there such thing as podcaster. there is vlogger and blogger! Keep up the good work .. cheers
If you're an arsenal fan and don't listen to this podcast, you're crazy. I listen to the podcasts at work and often find myself bursting out laughing on Monday. Andrew does a great job to mix comedy with terrific Arsenal insights. I highly recommend giving this shot. Keep up the good work, Andrew (and James)!
Insightful, funny, often hilarious podcast about everything arsenal. Awesome way to start your Monday and Friday mornings.
Excellent show week after week. Must listen for any Footie Fan in particular Arsenal fans
Keep it bald and in the deep freeze
I listen to this podcast while doing the dishes or riding the bus out here in Los Angeles. They make even banal stuff interesting. I went to a pub in Studio City to watch the recent FA Cup game, and the table next to where I was standing had this guy who was literally repeating everything that is said on this podcast about players, nicknames, and general insights throughout the game. It was annoying, but it shows how influential this podcast is.
Both Arsecast and Arsecast Extra are great. Required listening each week.
Great podcast, extremely entertaining, and good football discussion.
I'm an Arsenal fan and this podcast is minimum requirements if you are as well. But I'm also a Kerry/Patriots/Bruins fan and it's still the best sport and Phil Collins mocking podcast out there.
The analysis is insightful and fan-centric without being over the top. Plenty of humour as well. The addition of the Arsecast Extra with Gunnerblog was brilliant an only adds to the wonder of it all. Download this thing NOW.
Really funny, knowledgable and easy going Arsenal podcast. I’m biased…but I think even non Arsenal fans would enjoy this. Good job.
Love the podcast. Found it just over a year ago and wish I would have found it earlier. If all you want is dry analysis of every detail, look elsewhere. If you are looking for clear critique and solid analysis with some wit and humor from a true fan perspective, search no further. My only complaint is there isn't more because I'm greedy and like free, quality content. I mean come on Andy... We deserve at least 10 hours of free content per week. Lazy...😂😂😂
Take this podcast twice a week if you're an Arsenal fan.
Andrew and the gang are fantastic and have good commentary about matches, news, and of course Nick Bentdner. Go give 'em a listen. They're excellent.
Better than James' tracksuits.
The best football podcast out there.
Love the podcast, but I also kind of like the third kit so maybe I have terrible taste.
A Monday morning must listen. Great mix of football talk and humor. Keep up the great work guys!
Best football podcast out there. Entertaining, insightful, interesting guests and very well produced.
Great fun; if you’re an Arsenal fan, you should listen to this twice a week, every week
Goodly morning. This is the premier Arsenal podcast. It covers everything from transfer rumors to the hazards of having fingers made of Christmas crackers. Basically, the hard hitting "need to know" info in this hectic, modern age. Subscribe now, ahhhhhhhhhhh baby!
I love spending time with this podcast. A must for Arsenal and BPL fans.
A must for any Arsenal FC fan. Very informative and I have yet to listen to any podcast that makes me laugh as much as this one.
Not only are the hosts very humorous and entertaining, they dive into all aspects of Arsenal. If you are a Gooner, this is one podcast you should definitely listen to every week. A new podcast every monday and friday means I can get my Arsenal news in a fun format. This isn’t a podcast that you listen for facts to be blasted in your ear, but a down to earth view on the game and team, which is why I like it.
These guys are awesome! I recommend it to every soccer fan I know
This is the best Arsenal Podcast for fans of Arsenal. Phil Collins fans will also love it.
great podcast if you are an arsenal fan. like it more because arseblog never goes to the depression mode so quickly after one bad game 😝
US listener, enjoy their insight and humor. Good for recapping the weekend and putting a smile on your face. Must listen for any gooner.
A great podcast if you are an Arsenal fan. I look forward to it after every match.
Fantastic job week in week out! Keep it up!
Always a great show, very insightful, and up to date on all the goings on at Arsenal. My one caveat, probably not the best to have on near the kids. The explicit rating is warranted. Love the show!
This podcast is simply excellent. Great analysis of all things Arsenal, including squad selection, transfer policy, Özil's favorite animal, what choice of topping one should spread on the toast, and the impact GoonerBlog's physical health has on first team results. In all seriousness, this and the Arsecast Extra are wonderful programs that any Arsenal fan who isn't a complete wanker will enjoy.
Funny & insightful, look forward to every episode. Great when partnered with the Arseblog app
The Arsecast is the Arsenal pod that got me hooked...now I listen to over 20 of them. Andrew does an incredible job breaking down all things Arsenal while keeping it light and comical. The Arsecast Extra he does with James is phenomenal as well. A must listen to if you are an Arsenal fan.
Great podcast for any Gooner out there. A must listen.
The arsecast is a must listen for Arsenal fans. A good mix of analysis and light-hearted fun.
a very funny, addictive, and fantastic show! a must for gooners! Will not go to bed before listening this!!
Four years ago I met a secret season ticket holder (living in the US seems a bit overzealous). He passed on many choice nuances of the game like wearing the shirt of an injured player only helps if it's worn inside-out. The best advice he gave me was to listen to the Arsecast. He promised me it would change my life. I owe this man for the rest of my life. Not only has the podcast made me a bit taller, it's freshened my breath and given me Mikel Arteta hair (whose shirt is sewn face to face to Diaby's). Thanks to the Arsecast I now have a 3 day workweek to preserve a full day to the 'cast and the Extra. Gotta listen.
Only one worth listening to - meenoo5
Its da bomb
This is a must listen for ALL Gooners! I have a good laugh every episode. Blogs and James make my Mondays and Fridays so much more bearable! Anyways, it's a great show and the website is awesome too.
Waking up on Mondays and Fridays just got so much better now that I can reach for my phone and listen to a brand new Arsecast.
I've been listening for nearly two years now and these two are just phenomenal. Their shows are not only hilarious but offer great insight into the season and the current happenings at Arsenal. Really cannot give enough praise for these two men and I'm looking forward to continuously listening in on Mondays.
It should be on any gooners favorites list
Recently discovered about a month ago and can't wait for it to come out every Monday and Thursday. I'm a huge Arsenal fan and these podcasts are the best. Come on you gooners!!
This podcast is a stable to my post weekend and pre weekend diet for Arsenal news and opinions. Andrew and James have wonderful chemistry and are always there for a laugh or two. They may agree on most things (unlike how they like their toast) they still have very insightful views on the Arsenal.
I listen to the Arsecast and Arsecast Extra religiously. Good insight and analysis along with a little bit of humor. Go gunners
Preposterous entertaining and totally biased plus top-notch guests and interviews. It makes my Friday and I'm sad when it's on hiatus.
Essential listening for all supporters, hilarious and rather informative. Satiates the appetite between fixtures. Thanks Lads!
I’m a Gooner in Denver, and this is a must have podcast. The guys can be hilarious, and they talk about matches and stupid Chelsea like real fans, like I would talk to them with a round of beers. Easy to relate to, but they also have their knowledgeable and serious side discussing the team, ownership, the youth leagues, and have great guests. Well done.
Brings fun and joy to your day.
The best football podcast there is
Worth a read or listen everyday, sometimes more than 1x per day!
I listen to quite a few of Arsenal podcasts and football podcasts in general. As an Arsenal fan this is the best that is available out there. Andrew is excellent along with James (in Arsecast Extra) are my favorites. Once in a while stillberto joins in - whom I respect a lot!!. At times the arsecast is better than our matches!!
One of the most amazing, funny and professional football casts !! Highly recommended!!
