We'll pick over the broader ramifications of Francis Coquelin's costly injury as well as analyze the finer details of a not-so-fine away display from Arsene Wenger's men, plus discuss penalty-taking conspiracies, the Alexis-Giroud conundrum and unveil an "Edible Birds" Thanksgiving contest...

Post-Sp*rs: Spreading It Thin

November 9th, 2015

The cracks begin to show in the Gunners' depth chart as Arsenal are first embarrassed at Bayern before scraping a draw at home to cross-town rivals and sometimes-footballers Tottenham Hotspur. Helping us determine where all our defenders went, if Santi Cazorla's short legs get tired quicker and whether Arsenal are coming undone by an over-reliance on certain types of players will be returning guest Jon Shay of Woolwich 1886, plus last week's surprisingly dated trivia answer revealed and a genus species "incompetent idiot ref" for the Wanker of the Week...

Post-Swansea: We Only Need 45 Minutes

November 1st, 2015

Arsenal take one in the gut from the Owls in midweek before finally bringing back the champagne football in the 2nd half against Swansea to run away 3-nil winners in the Premiership on Saturday, so naturally we'll discuss Joel Campbell's right-wing staying power, offer up the usual wintertime injury speculation and see if we can't finally get "Peak Ozil" submitted into the dictionary. And to round out the show we've also got belated/useless Halloween costume tips and some tricky North London Derby trivia...

Post-Everton: Super Mesut Oval

October 25th, 2015

The Gunners add to their already-impressive run of results with marquee victories over Bayern Munich and then Everton at home, leaving us to wonder if the sky really is the limit for Arsene Wenger's squad and when exactly Alexis Sanchez will get a rest.

Post-Watford: Back in the Groove

October 18th, 2015

Arsene Wenger's squad only wastes about 62 minutes getting back into the swing of things as they eventually ease past the normally stingy Watford defense to the tune of 3 goals to nil in lieu of two much bigger matchups in the approaching week. Here to help us build up to the big ones and break down Arsenal's third straight Premiership win will be Sam Limbert of Sam's Match Reports, plus snack food Christian names and more in-depth analysis of our favorite Welsh Arsenal player...

Post-Man U: This Thing Called Consistency

October 4th, 2015

The Gunners turn in another truly Jekyll and Hyde week of performances with a shattering home loss to Olympiacos followed by, what else, an exhilarating home win over title contenders Manchester United. This leaves us confused. Luckily we've got returning guest Garry Bowman aka Twin Cities Gooner to help us make sense of both the good and the bad and place it all in the context of Arsenal's burgeoning Premiership hopes and waning Champions League dreams. We've also got some suitably anti-Man U trivia to provide you with a chance at some new sponsor Arsenal SWAG...

Post-Leicester: Return of the Father Figures

September 27th, 2015

The old guys show the young guys in the Arsenal squad how it's done (with a little help from Alexis) as Arsene Wenger's men go two for two with wins over Sp*rs and Leicester in the Capitol One Cup and Premiership respectively. Guiding us through the nuances of the COC and what we can actually take away from a win in this competition will be's Tim Bostelle, plus we'll analyze what makes the Leicester vs Arsenal fixture so topsy-turvy and look ahead to next week's vital home games against Olympiacos and then Man U...

Post-Chelski: Those Dirty, Bottom of the Table Teams

September 20th, 2015

We're not quite sure if any football got played in the last seven days as Arsenal emerge from two games with only one goal and three red cards, a tally that's in no small part to the machinations of Chelsea's Diego Costa and Mike Dean. Helping us learn how to stomach these unsavory events and pinpoint the source of Arsenal's offensive misfortunes will be Queen City Gooners Michael and Brandon, plus Leicester trivia that's sure to give Matt Elliott nightmares...

Post-Stoke: Striker Cameos

September 13th, 2015

Own Goal takes the bench for once as Arsenal's actual strikers help produce an actual home win to take the club up to third in an increasingly bizarre Premiership table. Joining us to make sense of Stoke's atypically offensive setup and pick the positives out of a relatively quiet summer transfer window will be returning guest Elliot Smith/Yankee Gunner, plus we'll throw in some not-as-far-as-we-thought-Croatian Champions League trivia for good measure and preview next weekend's away fixture against Chelsea…

Post-Newcastle: OG Running Riot

August 30th, 2015

Arsenal only just manage to keep their impressive away form rolling with a narrow victory over 10-man Newcastle in a game punctuated by lots of whistles and lots of cards. Helping us analyze the team's worryingly stagnant offense and the continuing mixing-and-matching going on in the squad will be Martin Tomlinson of the DC Armoury, plus some super-difficult own goal trivia and the trials and tribulations of playing at Newcastle laid bare...
