Post-Southampton: The Suicide Squad Returns

December 10th, 2017

Arsenal blitz hapless Bate in midweek Europa League action before shooting themselves in the (other) foot with yet another abysmal league start against Southampton. So, naturally, we'll debate roughly how long it will take Arsenal to actually take poor defending seriously, how deadly conceding an early goal is statistically and what difference playing four at the back actually makes in these situations, plus we'll throw in some prize trivia in case you're a) still behind on your Christmas shopping and b) a complete cheapskate...

Post-Burnley Live Show: One Nil Minnow Kill

November 27th, 2017

Arsenal put all their eggs in the Premiership points basket as they turn in one dismal 1-nil display and.....er....another dismal -- albeit more profitable -- 1-nil display, once again breaking Burnley hearts to move into top four strata in the league. We'll announce last week's show trivia answer, try to unpack Kolasinac's striker potential and Aaron Ramsey's new designated diver status as we relive this week's scrappy performances...

For the first time in what seems like a lifetime, Arsenal return from an international break refreshed and revitalized as they dominate their cross town rivals in a well-earned 2-nil victory. Helping us unpack all the drama, off-the-ball-hustle, and surprisingly effective flank play from the Gunners will be returning guest Elliot Smith aka YankeeGunner, plus we'll unload some new prize trivia and give some tips on how to not completely lose your mind while watching tense matches...

Post-Swansea: Kosinacked

October 29th, 2017

Arsenal play the role of comeback kings for two successive home games, first against Norwich in the League Cup and then against Swansea in the Premiership. Helping us explain the squad's lingering defensive insecurities will be returning guest Garry Bowman, plus we'll talk about the politics of Lacazette's 70th minute substitutions and build up the shootout that's looming next weekend against Man City...

Post-Everton: Talent Is Good, Talent Is Very Good

October 22nd, 2017

Arsenal scrape past Red Star Belgrade thanks to a Giroud/team-wide wonder goal, then put an over-pursuant and slightly over-tackly Everton to the sword 5-2 courtesy of the Lacazette-Ozil-Sanchez trifecta. We'll discuss why pure offensive talent is sometimes (err, a lot of times?) just better, re-evaluate Granit Xhaka's holding midfield learning curve and find a place for a bubbling-under Jack Wilshere...

Post-Watford: Hello Darkness, My Old Friend…

October 15th, 2017

Arsenal regresses to the Arsenal we know and (don't really) love with a 2nd half capitulation at Vicarage Road, opening up questions anew about substitutions, squad motivation and the usefulness of certain, lackadaisical German playmakers. Totally bailing us out on all the really tough questions will be Woolwich 1886 writer and Arsenal Review USA contributor Jon Shay, plus we'll discuss non-Alexis goalscoring and the upcoming matchups with Red Star Belgrade and Everton...

Post-Brighton: Mini-Streak

October 1st, 2017

Arsene Wenger's men do what they have to do against the lesser lights of both Europe and the Premier League as they stroll past BATE Borisov and then Brighton a few days later, extending a little run of promising performances. We'll discuss team spirit in the absence of marquee stars, who at the club clearly enjoys scoring goals the most and whether or not this will be an international break that helps Arsenal's Premiership momentum...

Post-West Brom Live Show: All Hail the New #9

September 25th, 2017

Arsenal continue to make slow and steady progress gelling as a team as they likewise climb upwards in the Premiership table, thanks to a 2-nil home win over Tony Pulis’ West Brom. We’ll discuss League Cup pragmatism, inverse partnerships between Arsenal’s French strikers and how cool it must feel to tell Mesut Ozil to ride the bench, amongst other things…
