Welcome to a brand new episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, the number one podcast about Arsenal Women.
On this episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast the panel look ahead to the Olympic games which start later this month and preview the four teams with Arsenal interest. In Part 1, Tim and Alex talk to ESPN Australia, Optus and the Guardian’s Samantha Lewis about the Matildas’ chances in Tokyo as well as the fortunes of Lydia Williams, Cailtin Foord and Steph Catley.
Then Tim and Alex talk to Dutch journalist Annemarie Postma about the Netherlands’ chances, as well as the recent departures of Danielle van de Donk and Jill Roord and they discuss their upcoming mangerial change which will see England bound Sarina Wiegman replaced by Mark Parsons.

As a Dutchy, can confirm it’s quite fun! 😉
I enjoyed the chat. I can’t wait for the tournament. Also got my ticket for the Euros final so gotta hope for some Gunners at Wembley!
Thanks, Tim and Alex. I felt quite sad thinking about our ex-Dutchies – Janssen, DvD especially.
do the players have to stay for the closing ceremony in August ?
Cant see Australia being in it after July 27, 4 losses and 1 draw in warm up games under new Coach Jonah
Watching Zambia v Netherlands on Eurosport, and Viv’s just scored her easiest goal ever after a horrible goalkeeping error (oh, Lieke Martens has rolled in a second…and Viv’s made it 3) Nice to see so many former Gunners: Sari, Dominique, Jill, Daan – but sad that they’re no longer with us. Shambolic defence from the Dutch 3-1 and only 20 minutes gone!
I sometimes despair of commentators with their horrific pronunciation of Dutch names. They’re professionals who should do a bit of preparation!
