The Arsenal Women Arsecast Episode 23 – Did Arsenal hear Jill Roord?

Welcome to a brand new episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, the number one podcast about Arsenal Women.

In this episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, Tim and Alex take listener questions around summer signings and departures, discuss the news of Jill Roord’s departure to Wolfsburg and the likely arrival of Mana Iwabuchi from Aston Villa. There are also questions on whether Katie McCabe will play at left-back next season, which players have been a surprise during this campaign, why the season ultimately proved to be disappointing and the panel also contemplate a difficult pre-season ahead with a new manager, several players off to the Olympics followed by August Champions League qualifiers and a crowded looking schedule next season.

You can follow Alex on Twitter @alexibaceta123 and Tim @Stillberto

Having been an Arsenal (from afar) fan (Arsen Wenger times) could you maybe on your Arsecast do an episode about the Swiss contigent in Arsenal women. Thanks

Interesting to listen to the discussion around signing another striker as a priority when perceived wisdom is that we have the best one already. However, I am in full agreement. When you look at the squads of the successful teams around Europe they have different options but we are far too reliant on one person. Far too often there has been an opportunity to take a strike on goal but instead we still try and feed the ball to Viv who then gets marked out of the game. Also, being in 4 competitions next season, Viv will need a breather… Read more »

Thanks Tim and Alex. Really great podcast. Next season is a very important season for Arsenal Women. We are at a fork in the road and whether we become one of the dominant teams or just the best of the rest will be determined by our choice of manager and our recruitment this summer. I agree with Alex that a top class striker is our number one priority. That has been the difference between Chelsea and City & Arsenal) (apart from sheer squad size, but that can change with injuries). We have one world class striker (the best in the… Read more »

Totally agree that Caitlin was the star under the radar acquisition last season. There was all sorts of disruption when she first arrived so it could not have been easy for her but she has certainly shown her worth this season. I’d like to see what Ebony Salmon could do given decent team mates. A very different type of striker to Viv but anyone that can score 6 of the 18 goals that Bristol City managed this season must have something about them. I can see her running onto a long diagonal ball from Leah already! We got Lotte and… Read more »

Casey Stoney has just become available citing a lack of support from Utd.. Mmm???

Well, if they don’t at least consider her, they are crazy. She knows the league and the players, is a proven winner, tactically astute – and a former Gunner. The only question mark in my mind is whether she is the right personality to manage our more experienced, stellar players who may not take to a disciplinarian.
No support from Man U, eh? Who is surprised? We knew the talk was just lip service.

Agree a women coach is preferable, but Casey has a post lined up in the US of A per the BBC Sport site. On recruitment, how about trying to poach Weir and Stanway from City?
