Post-West Ham: Unquenchable Goal Lust

December 4th, 2016

Arsenal whimper away from the EFL with a disappointing midweek loss to Southampton at the Emirates before Alexis gives them the three goal shot in the arm they need as the Gunners run away 5-1 winners at West Ham. Helping us desperately look for replacement Alexis parts/alternative goalscoring options and weigh out Arsenal's less confident fringe players will be returning guest Jon Shay of Woolwich 1886, plus some discussion on the Ox's improving but bi-polar performances and the post-Brexit exchange rate for golden retrievers...


Post-Bournemouth: Alexis on the Double

Post-Man U: Too Timid to Win

Post-Sp*rs: Oggy to the Rescue

November 6th, 2016

Things get nervy as Arsenal first have to come from behind in Bulgaria to defeat Ludogorets (courtesy of an insane piece of Ozil finishing) before eking out a draw with the local poultry mongers at the Emirates.

Post-Sunderland: The Giroud Option

October 30th, 2016

Arsene Wenger's squad takes care of business easily enough in midweek EFL action as they dispatch Reading 2-0 but then come up against a slightly more testing (possibly desperate) Sunderland side at the Stadium of Light.

Post-Boro: Feast to Famine

October 23rd, 2016

Arsenal run riot in the Champions League as they put six past Bulgarian side Ludogorets and then turn around and score precisely 0.0 goals against a packed-in Middlesbrough.

Arsenal make it tough-sledding against Swansea as they narrowly emerge with a 3-2 victory at home, winning their sixth straight game in the Premiership.

Post-Burnley: Five’s a Streak

October 2nd, 2016

Arsenal obliterate Champions League party-poopers Basel before blundering their way to a last-second victory against jammy Burnley at Turf Moor, but we couldn't care less as we celebrate a real, live winning streak on Arsene Wenger's 20th anniversary at the club. Helping us unravelthe stats on a beefed up Theo Walcott and turn a blind eye on forearm goals will be returning guest Tim Bostelle of 7amkickoff, plus we'll give our favorite Wenger sideline dramas and catalog the virtues of the crappy away win...


Post-Chelski: Style & Steel

September 25th, 2016

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...
