Arsenal 2 Leeds United 1 Reaction | Arsecast Extra

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.

In this episode we discuss the 2-1 win over Leeds on Sunday. A game that started brilliantly with two early goals and in which we played 10 men for over an hour became quite nerve-wracking after their out of the blue goal in the second period. We chat about the fear, why it was so intense when in reality Arsenal were in control for the most part, losing composure and how it manifested itself, James’ coping mechanism, as well as how important the three points were, and a bit focus on some excellent individual performances. There are inevitable questions about the derby on Thursday which feels very much like a cup final given everything that’s at stake, including how we might set up and what tweaks we might make to our defensive line-up. Plus Mohamed Elneny’s contract, some chat about Mikel Arteta’s new deal and lots more before we have to give up after talking ourselves into a state of turmoil.

  1. Thursday's game should be more about not letting Spurs win than us thinking about not to lose. Setting up a team to suffocate the match should take precedence. Keep probing them, get them to take initiative, to come out instead of counter-attack. The longer the result is not in their favor, the more the anxiety will build up in the stadium. A winning goal for us towards the end of the game will deal a huge blow to them.

  2. North London forever
    Whatever the weather
    These streets are our own
    And my heart will leave you never
    My blood will forever
    Run through the stone

  3. I’m not sure the song was organic tbh. The fact we brought people in to look at the atmosphere then it comes out of nowhere and played in the stadium a few days later. Love it though! Just not sure it didn’t get a little push from the club from the beginning, which I applaud if true!

  4. League is totally different now. Arsene won a farmers league. All that money and foreign ownership. Top 4 definitely is a trophy now. Was even back then. Never got folk would prefer League cup to CL participation. Personally feel same bout FA cup. Its a bonus but way behind.

  5. If Kane is reading here. I don't want to put pressure on you but your stuck there for 4 more years winning nothing and if you don't win on Thursday you are going to be in Europa League dropping Conference League and Conte will leave.

  6. Odeegard or Xhaka obvious captains and Xhaka maybe had his time.
    You just saw tackle . I flinched every time they replayed it.

  7. I love Elneny but we can't pretend he is world class all of a sudden. New contract fine. He should have been played earlier it seems.
    Tommy is fantastic. Just the fact calf last season and this with recurrence. I thought Tommy at left back here. Played it we in Italy and meant Cedric not shoe horned to left. Different problems on Thursday.

  8. I refuse to watch Spurs Liverpool or Manchester shited winning. I indeed go watch something else and fast wind to see if i want to watch again. Do it with us losing if I feel weak.

  9. Just watched again . Nerves mainly fans. Nuno is playing its different. Ramsdale only one making me nervous. Leed had 2 shots. That last flicked headed chance was the moment otherwise we bossed it. We were good. Just needed to score another one earlier but none total sitters.

  10. GOYG one more win 😎 clinch top 4 at the toilet bowl!
    (Btw could I kindly get the name of that melody in the intro lol 😅)

  11. Great start, Eddie goes from struggling to score last week vs west ham, to scoring 2 in the first half… really happy for him. But the team made a meal out of a game that should've been wrapped up pretty easily. Pepe… is there anyone that would buy him off us or is it just better to keep him with CL football?

  12. Arsenal player ratings v Leeds:
    Ramsdale – 6 (lowest rated starter)
    Soares – 7
    Holding – 6
    Magalhães – 6
    Tomiyasu – 7
    Ødegaard – 8
    Elneny – 7
    Xhaka – 7
    Saka – 7
    Nketiah – 8 (motm)
    Martinelli – 8
    Pépé – 6 (lowest rated player)
    Smith Rowe – 6
    Lacazette – 6
    Arteta – 7

  13. I feel sick with nerves. The one consolation is that Spurs fans should feel worse because they don’t have a ‘get out of jail free’ card if they lose.
