Post-Man U Live Show: Cometh the Hour

March 13th, 2019

Arsenal strike when the iron is most-definitely hot, beating Man U at home to ensure all their top four rivals drop precious points. We discuss how exactly Arsenal made their own luck, gutsy starting lineups, Maitland-Niles' unorthodox coming of age and how Xhaka can essentially turn any ball into a Jabulani...

Post-Sp*rs: Sour Draw

March 3rd, 2019

Arsenal's good week comes to a slightly dissatisfying and anti-climactic end as they get pegged back (controversially!) by Sp*rs to finish 1-1 in the North London Derby. We'll take time to talk over Emery's masterclass of lineup decision making, the Sokratis Method, the hard-yet-still-soft science that is offside as well as some Bournemouth fun thrown in for good measure...

Post-Southampton: #CleanSheets

February 24th, 2019

Arsenal string together two (extremely!) rare clean sheets to revitalize their Europa League campaign and possibly their Premiership top four aspirations as well, comfortably thumping BATE Borisov before cruising past Southampton in the league. We'll talk Ozil's improvement and whether or not it can be sustainable, Lacazette's quiet domination and the squad's momentum as it improves its position on two fronts...

Post-Huddersfield: Limping to Victory

February 11th, 2019

An expected loss against a good team is followed by a (maybe) unexpectedly bad win against a crap team as Arsenal continue to scrap their way through a dismal new year. We'll attempt to pinpoint the cause of the squad's disconnect between midfield and frontline, talk indirect midfield play and flirt with the idea of bringing back Ozil for an outside chance at some precious momentum...

Post-Chelsea: Clutch Stuff

January 22nd, 2019

Arsenal win big when the chips are down in a heartening 2-nil thriller against the oil barons at the Emirates. We’ll discuss the positives of actually playing your heart out, debate just how boring Chelsea’s offense was plus touch on Sven Mislintat’s departure and wonder whether or not Ozil can ever post enough weight-lifting selfies to get back into the starting lineup…

Post-Blackpool: Back to Winning Ugly

January 6th, 2019

After a rough December, Unai Emery's men start the new year off with a bang by putting four past an impotent Fulham and easing past Blackpool on the road. We'll discuss the youth power lineup, why Arsenal still look rickety plus gauge the trade-in value of one Mesut Ozil for ohhhh, two-three players who actually give a rat's in the January transfer window...

Post-Burnley: Physical Stuff

December 24th, 2018

Arsenal stutter slightly with a (meaningless!) loss to Sp*rs in the League Cup before bulldozing their way past an elbowy Ashley Barnes and Burnley. We'll get in touch with The Big Diag's Sam Limbert for input on these two aggro-filled home matches, all the latest Ozil and Ramsey rumors and how much more Emery can shuffle a very very makeshift defense before January...

Post-Huddersfield: Still Unbeaten

December 9th, 2018

Arsenal squander the lead twice against Man U in midweek before eking out a win over a jammy, fouly Huddersfield side at home. We'll hit up Arsenal match day commentator Dan Roebuck for some insight what went wrong at Old Trafford, get his take on why Torreira relishes the defensive midfield role and even harken back to the North London derby to see if it ranks as a "signature" win at the Emirates...

Post-Sp*rs: Spuds Spanking

December 2nd, 2018

Arsenal emerge from the international break with a scrappy win, a comfy win, and a downright blood-and-thunder derby win to silence the doubters and extend their unbeaten run even further. We'll discuss Unai Emery's killer instinct, why it may actually unhinge the other team to sub at halftime, the power of big wins for this new squad and generally all the feel-good moments of the Tottenham win...

Post-Interlull #3: Define Progress

November 19th, 2018

With nothing else to do other than watch the US Men's National Team get shellacked by England, we'll talk through Arsenal's roundabout defensive progress, when exactly a marquee win will come Emery's way and our players of the season thus far...
