The Arsenal Therapy Podcast – Slavia Praha 0-4 Arsenal (EP.27)

Summary

Welcome to The Arsenal Therapy Podcast, a dedicated show about a club I love, Arsenal Football Club.

A perfect performance by Arteta’s Arsenal that saw them wash aside a below average Slavia Praha side and progress into the Semi Finals of the Europa League where they will face Villareal. This was one of Arsenal’s strongest performance of the season with 3 first half goals sealing the victory early on. The standout performers on the night were Saka, Smith-Rowe, Pepe, Lacazette and Partey who were all instrumental in getting the ball in the final third to create goal scoring opportunities. Despite having Xhaka play Left Back, Arteta’s plan worked perfectly.

The Arsenal Therapy Podcast – Sheffield Utd 0-3 Arsenal (026)

Summary

Welcome to The Arsenal Therapy Podcast, a dedicated show about a club I love, Arsenal Football Club.

This was a game that didn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things for Arsenal as they looked ahead to the second leg Europa League Quarter Finals against Slavia Praha. If there was anything to gain from Sheffield United, a side preparing for life in the Championship next season, it was confidence and momentum going into Thursdays game in Prague. A solid performance from a side suffering from injuries saw them cruise past Sheffield United with 3 very well worked team goals. The standout performers included Martinelli who appeared on the score sheet, Saka who limped off injured midway through the second half and Lacazette who scored two great goals!

The Arsenal Therapy Podcast – Arsenal 1-1 Slavia Praha (025)

Summary

Welcome to The Arsenal Therapy Podcast, a dedicated show about a club I love, Arsenal Football Club.

What started off as a promising game with lots of talent on the pitch with Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe coming back in the lineup, the last minute brought Arsenal back to reality. The game was dominated by Arsenal with so many opportunities being created on the first half down the right hand side with Saka being put through on goal a few times whilst also generating some good crosses in the box, albeit the wrong types of crosses. The second half saw us carry on where we left off from despite Praha start to play a higher line and press with more men. Lacazette had two guilt edge opportunities with a one-on-one and what could be described as a tap in that went over. Whilst Arsenal were strong and dominant in Slavia Praha’s half, they also posed a danger when Arsenal lost possession in midfield. We could easily have conceded goals in the first and second half, however had Arsenal taken the opportunities they created early on it could have been a different story. Ultimately, the subs made the difference with Aubameyang coming on to put Pepe through on goal who scored the crucial goal. Martinelli came on to change the pace of the game but he is clearly not the finished product and needs time to adapt and develop himself before being given regular football. As Arsenal enter the later stages of the game, we fail to react positively, crumble under pressure and concede from a set piece. It’s all to play for in Prague.

The Arsenal Therapy Podcast – West Ham 3-3 Arsenal (023)

Summary

Welcome to The Arsenal Therapy Podcast, a dedicated show about a club I love, Arsenal Football Club.

After a horrible first 30 minutes where Arsenal concede 3 goals, they suddenly come to life to steal a thoroughly well deserved point. West Ham started the game really well with an early first half goal from Lingard. Arsenal aren’t able to compose themselves quick enough as they concede a second goal from a free kick quickly taken by Lingard who slots it into the feet of Bowen who then beats Leno on his near post. The third goal is scored on the half hour mark as Arsenal look well beaten. However, with a goal scored on the end of the pitch before the half-time whistle there seems to be a glimmer of hope. The gunners start the second half as they left off at the end of the first half and put West Ham under pressure. Silky work on the ball from Odegaard and a strong work ethic from Lacazette helps them get a second goal. The final 30 minutes sees West Ham grow back into the game as a tired Arsenal side sit back, which almost cost them a goal as Antonio hits the bar. Following the introduction of Martinelli and Pepe, Arsenal push to score the third goal. Overall, it’s a well deserved point from a team that showed desire and character to come back from 3-0 down, but why do Arsenal make it difficult for themselves?

The Arsenal Therapy Podcast – Arsenal 0-1 Olympiacos (022)

Summary

Welcome to The Arsenal Therapy Podcast, a dedicated show about a club I love, Arsenal Football Club.

Looking ahead to this game, we all expected Arsenal to face a hungry Olympiacos side who were likely to cause many problems. However, the first half didn’t meet those expectations as Arsenal managed the game perfectly with opportunities to seal the tie in the opening 45 minutes. Arteta’s men played with a positive energy, great enthusiasm and worked hard to keep the ball throughout the first half. However, the second half was a completely different story as Olympiacos came out of 2nd gear and started to put Arsenal’s backline under pressure. For whatever reason, Arsenal struggled to win dominance early on in the second half and following a sloppy mistake in the middle of the pitch, they conceded an early goal. Olympiacos were very much the dominant side in the second half and got themselves in good areas but were unable to capitalise. Arsenal’s game management wasn’t working and needed Baa to be sent off before taking control of the game. Had it not been for the red card Olympiacos may have scored another goal to make it a very nervy ending to the game.

The Arsenal Therapy Podcast – Arsenal 2-1 Tottenham (021)

Summary

Welcome to The Arsenal Therapy Podcast, a dedicated show about a club I love, Arsenal Football Club.

Arsenal school Tottenham in the most spectacular fashion. Going into this game, most fans were cautious with how Arteta was going to set Arsenal up against a confident Tottenham side. However, the first 10 minutes showed that we were going to approach this game cautiously whilst dominating it at the same time. Tottenham sat back and allowed Arsenal to play the ball around with comfort and confidence. We cam close to scoring too, with Smith-Rowe’s effort that hit the bar, then later Cedric’s blistering shot that hit the post. However, following the substitution of Son for Lamela, Arsenal slowed down the pace and allowed them to get back into the game which led to the goal. Arsenal soon woke up and continued to dominate the game which led to a great goal from Odegaard which started from the right hand side. A common theme of our game was the amount of crosses that were coming into the box which although lacked any effectiveness, a low driven cross soon came to fruition. The second half was with Arsenal controlling the game and keeping the ball in their half. Tottenham seemingly trying to grow back into the game with more pressure off the ball but Arsenal were far too comfortable with their passing rhythm and intense pressure off the ball which led to the penalty and the second goal. All in all Arsenal deserved the 3 points against a very poor Tottenham side who once again proved are nothing without Son and Kane on top form.

The Arsenal Therapy Podcast – Olympiacos 1-3 Arsenal (020)

Summary

Welcome to The Arsenal Therapy Podcast, a dedicated show about a club I love, Arsenal Football Club.

Looking ahead into a jam packed week of football, this was a crucial game for Arsenal to win by scoring more than 1 away goal to assure a strong starting lineup for the North London Derby. The starting lineup was relatively strong with Saka, Odegaard and Partey leading the lineup, however it was surprising to see Willian start ahead of Pepe. The game it self was very much a game of two halves with Arsenal starting the first half very strong and dominant with a world class strike from Odegaard. However, following the first goal, Arsenal sat back and allowed Olympiacos to grow into the game and eventually in the second half equalised through yet again, ANOTHER error at the back. This time Leno is to blame for coming out of his area and putting Ceballos under pressure. Following from the error Arsenal found it very difficult to regroup with Olympiacos putting us under pressure and having the ball around the final third of our half. However, a brilliant leap from Gabriel saw him score a wonderful header that changed the tie and soon followed a world class strike from Elneny who apparently is only capable of scoring 30 yard shots. Arsenal will be very happy with the overall result, however with the North London Derby only days away, can this team stop gifting their opposition with goals created from errors.

The Arsenal Therapy Podcast – Leicester 1-3 Arsenal (019)

Summary

Welcome to The Arsenal Therapy Podcast, a dedicated show about a club I love, Arsenal Football Club.

I give my instant reaction to Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over Leicester City who despite scoring a goal in the first 6 minutes, failed to capitalise on it. Arsenal were exceptional after conceding in the opening 10 minutes of the game and there were some standout performances from Willian, Lacazette and Pepe which helped us get back in front before the end of the first half. This was arguably one of our best, if not, the best performance we’ve had this season with all 11 players keeping control of the game.
