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...

Post-Liverpool: Home Drought

August 24th, 2015

The home goalscoring duck remains unbroken as somehow things stay scoreless between Arsenal and Liverpool at the Emirates, leading us to wonder what exactly is the source of the squad's offensive struggles, just how long Petr Cech will have to fill in for the absence of the Mertescielny axis and whether we really want to start discussing the timing of Arsene Wenger's subs only three games into the season (spoiler: we do). We've also got a suitably scoreless trivia contest. So, there's that.

Post-Crystal Palace: On the Board

August 17th, 2015

Arsenal break their points duck with the help of OG's new and old as first the Frenchman then the less fortunate Irishman bulge the Crystal Palace net at Selhurst Park. Helping us dissect Alan Pardew's kamikaze gameplan and make sense of Theo Walcott's perpetual benchwarming will be returning guest Sam Limbert of Sam's Match Reports, plus we confuse your favorite Arsenal scissor kicks and try to find an excuse to insinuate Mikel Arteta back into the holding midfield role...

Post-West Ham: Opening Mayday

August 10th, 2015

The first setback of the season comes just a tad earlier than expected as two soft goals to West Ham at home prevent Arsenal from capitalizing on Chelsea's dropped points. Oh, and we scored none so it also means we lose, a topic we'll be trying to make some sense of with the help of Woolwich 1886's Jon Shay, along with some discussion on just how much home cooking Karim Benzema requires and whether or not an opening day loss is just a drop in the bucket or a serious dent to title aspirations. Cheer up, only 37 more to go!

Post-Community Shield: Hello José, My Old Friend

August 3rd, 2015

Arsene treats José to the sound of silence as Arsenal muscle out the title winners for the second Community Shield in a row thanks to a ruthless Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain strike. We’ll relive it all with the help of Adrian Cazares and Rick Breese from Arsenal America, plus discuss how much we should really read into a Community Shield victory and get an update on the perks of an Arsenal America 2015-16 membership...

Post-FA Cup Victory: Blessed Team, Blessed Performance

June 1st, 2015

Arsenal are full value for the win as they fully eclipse Aston Villa with an offensive and defensive masterclass that sees them clinch their second — SECOND, PEOPLE — FA Cup in two years. We’re pretty ecstatic about all this, frankly, and we’re even more pleased to be able to relive the whole glorious day at Wembley with the Arsenal match day commentator Dan Roebuck, who’ll discuss starting lineup surprises, the unsung-success of Wenger’s tactics and the trophy mileage we can hope to get out of this current squad of players. We’ll also present the best, the worst, and the filthiest of 2014/15 based on listener reviews, as well as unveil the Arsenal Review USA Podcast Sunday Fantasy League winner.
