Post-Chelski: Style & Steel

September 25th, 2016

Arsenal break their Chelsea duck in terrific style after similarly wiping the floor with Nottingham Forest in EFL Cup midweek action. Helping us understand this alternate universe we've entered will be Adrian Cazares of Arsenal America, plus our take on the exact cause of Chelsea's apparent malaise and the usefulness of the flagrant no-look/bench-gazing pass...


Post-Hull: The Brazilian Formation

September 17th, 2016

Arsenal have only a wasteful Edison Cavani to thank for escaping Paris with a point in midweek Champions League action before they return to the welcoming pastures err....docks of Hull City, where they finish out the week with a fairly comfortable 4-1 win. The Twin Cities Gooner Garry Bowman will discuss confusing formations, the offensive/defensive tradeoff we get with Alex Iwobi plus striking while the penalty iron is hot...


Post-Southampton: Luck of the New Signings

September 11th, 2016

Arsenal make it 2-0-0 since spending some f***ing money in the summer transfer window, but only just as they have to rely on some fairly charitable refereeing to score a last-gasp penalty against the dreaded Shane Long and Southampton on the weekend. Since we're still a little worried they haven't shaken the habit of over-elaborating in front of goal we've brought back Kevin Mooney of to talk offensive directness, center-back pairings, midfield depth and much much more in lieu of a busy week of games against PSG and then Hull, plus some Parisian prize trivia...


Post-Watford: The Season Starts Now (Except It Didn’t But That’s What We’re Pretending)

August 28th, 2016

Arsenal FINALLY kickstart their season with three valuable points, courtesy of the Alexis-Ozil duo and an all around barnstorming first half performance. Kyle will be playing the podcast's Shanghai correspondent for the weekend along with Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Xhaka analysis from returning guest Elliot Smith, plus a new weekly Arsenal Haiku segment and brand new (Arsenal!) scarf trivia...


Post-Leicester: Baby Steps

August 21st, 2016

Who are we kidding, "baby steps?" Arsenal needed a massive leap when it came to their outfield chemistry and transfer policy, and unfortunately the second week of the new Premiership season gave them neither as they drew nil-nil to Leicester (has anyone told you they're last season's champions?!) and added just as many players to their roster. We'll discuss/debate/pull our hair out over what monstrosity could possibly be beneath the iceberg tip that is Arsenal's transfer embargo plus debate non-existent Theo Walcott stats and whether or not we really give a rip about Rob Holding's potential, plus offer up the easiest prize trivia contest ever…

Post-Liverpool: Makeshift, Makeshift Arsenal

August 14th, 2016

Arsenal start off in a way in which we really hope they don't mean to continue as they lose another home opener, this time to Jurgen Klopp's rampant Liverpool side. Our man in the ground -- Sam Limbert of The Big Diag -- will give us his on-hand account of Arsenal's inexperienced center back duo, plus help us debate the questionable merit of waiting to purchase so late in the transfer window and pick over the few positives of Arsenal's three goal offense...

Pre-MLS All-Stars: Google Hangouts Are Hard

July 28th, 2016

Audio feed from the Arsenal - MLS All-Stars pre-game Google Hangouts with Patrick from the OC Gooners & Justin from the Chicago Gooners...


Post-Villa: Tradition, Tradition

May 15th, 2016

Just when Arsenal thought they had waisted the chance to catch Sp*rs, Mauricio Pochettino's men set the gold standard for choke jobs at St. James Park and allow Arsenal's 4-nil win over Villa to propel the Gunners into a 2nd place finish. Helping us make sense of all the craziness as it unfolded at the Emirates will be Sam Limbert of Sam', plus a look back at the best, the worst, and the most valuable players of the 2015/16 season as dictated by listeners...


Post-Man City: Honors Even

May 8th, 2016

Arsenal do just enough to keep Manchester City and a demotion to fourth place at bay with two equalizing strikes from Giroud and then Alexis at the Etihad. Helping us assess the squad's ability to handle to Sky Blues' midfield press and look ahead wistfully to a summer of at least *three* new signings will be returning guest Chris Jenkins, plus a shout out for the End of Season Survey/chance at SWAG...


Post-Sunderland: Out of Ideas

April 24th, 2016

Arsenal cruise past a mediocre West Brom side at home before stuttering at the Stadium of Light in a nil-nil draw that leaves the door to the Top Four open for Manchester United. Returning guest Elliott Smith is on hand to help us distinguish between intentional and haphazard squad building and help identify the identity Wenger's side needs to achieve, plus Invincibles vs Norwich prize trivia...
