Post-EPL: Could’ve Been Worse, Could’ve Been A Lot Better

May 14th, 2019

Arsenal just manages to squeak out one last win (away from home even!) to finish out their Premiership campaign as they see off Burnley 3-1 at Turf Moor. We’ll take this win with a pinch of salt as we look back on Arsenal’s promising spells throughout the 2018/19 season and give you the best, the worst, the most wankerish, the most sell-worthy, the most indispensable of a very very up-and-down first season* for Unai Emery…

(*Joel wants you to know he’s really sorry for forgetting stuff at random during this production. Just a case of the Mustafi’s…)

Post-Brighton: Out With a Whimper

May 5th, 2019

Arsenal follow up their Europa League comeback win by falling back into their sputtering Premiership form, drawing 1-1 to Brighton at home in another lackluster offensive display. We'll catch up with Arsenal match day commentator Dan Roebuck to chronicle Arsenal's downward trajectory at home, evaluate Aaron Ramsey's 11 year legacy and gauge optimism as the club prepares (we hope) for some major summer restructuring...

Post-Leicester: Beating a Dead Horse

April 29th, 2019

Things go from bad, to worse, to downright pathetic over a three game stretch where Arsenal bank precisely zero points and leak no less than *NINE* goals in very winnable fixtures. We'll discuss to what extent is Emery's managerial style taking a toll on his players, discuss the pedigree of said players and where it all went pear-shaped for Arsenal's top four ambitions...

Post-Everton: Away Woes

April 8th, 2019

Arsenal's away-from-home nerves yield yet another dismal performance as they allow the oldest Premier League goalscorer to dispatch them at Goodison Park. We'll evaluate how big a dent this puts in the Gunner's St. Totteringham's Day hopes plus re-evaluate the amount of poise this squad really has as they lay another away egg...

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...
