Arsenal Women Arsecast Episode 71: October mailbag

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, Tim is joined by Aidan Gibson to field listener questions on the goalkeeping situation and whether Arsenal need to settle on either Sabrina D’Angelo or Manu Zinsberger as number 1, the defence and how long it might take for the defensive unit to settle down having introduced two new signings into the equation this season, Arsenal switching between a back three and a back four and whether there is a distinct enough style under Jonas Eidevall, as well as questions on Arsenal’s record at the Emirates and Jonas Eidevall’s new contract.

You can follow Tim on Twitter @Stillmanator : Follow Aidan @BeltransOldMole

Just having a listen… Having two 7/10 keepers is the reason why it makes sense to rotate. If either of our GKs were 9/10 she would be the undisputed number 1. Stability wouldn’t turn D’Angelo or Zinsberger into a 9/10 goalkeeper.

I think what matters in a 3ATB is the personnel. The Dutch are very creative with that system. They can play direct as well. We have so many creative players that I don’t think we have to lose creativity or fluidity just because we’re playing 3ATB.

Really want to echo the part about losing creativity or fluidity because of our game plan because that’s been my main problem with the team in the past two games.

Really liked the part where you talked about Jonas’s philosophy being primarily Out of possession. I think I didn’t notice this beforehand because so many teams sit back against us but in retrospect a lot of our best games imo have been as a result of our out of possession play(Chelsea at home in January comes to mind for me).I admit I was one of the dissenters of our performance against united because we didn’t want to keep the ball. I honestly don’t dislike playing more transitionally in practice but I don’t want it to be at the cost of… Read more »

If Mary Earps don’t sign for Arsenal next season, they have to go for Mackenzie Arnold, she doesn’t shine too much because she’s in a low middle table team, but if Westham is not in the relegation battle every year is because of her. we drop points last year against Westham, Westham play 3 at the back, is a good defensive formation, gives you a double block of 6 depending on the midfield setup, and Mackenzie skills are very good for a back 3 formation.


Thanks again for this. I’ve been surprised by some the negativity surrounding even the Man Utd game… Incidentally, would love to see an edit comparing Stina’s goal on Friday with the first 30 seconds of the MU-PSG game, Lessons leaned by PSG but not by United.


right.. I dont know enough about AFC women to disagree with any of it.. but I am sure I disagree with something. I need to learn and gain knowledge. So far, it is AFC. and women.. AFC women kicking ass. And so far a tough year.. we will turn shit around! Not sucking up to him.. do not know him to suck up. yet. But Tim Stillman.. he is like a movement on is own when it comes to people like me. People like me? An old man who did not get women’s foootie. Yeah , I have no real… Read more »
