March 2nd, 2015

Arsenal’s defenders sort out their (perceived) language differences enough to record a clean sheet in their win against Everton only four days after shipping three goals to a calculated Monaco side in the Champions League.

Post-Crystal Palace: Better Lucky…

February 23rd, 2015

It's not an Arsenal match unless you can cut the tension with a knife, and so it proved yet again, this time at the crater-ridden Selhurst Park where Arsene Wenger's squad clung to all three points on a weekend where most Top Four hopefuls lost out. We'll discuss the Arsenal midfield's issues with pressure, the increasingly reliable offensive exploits of Olivier Giroud and the few things we know about Monaco with returning guest Jon Shay of Woolwich 1886 and the Chicago Gooners, and just to change things up on the trivia front we'll also test your throwback-Wenger knowledge...

February 2nd, 2015

Alexis' stand-ins absolutely wipe the floor with Paul Lambert's hapless Aston Villa at the Emirates to exhibit Arsenal's embarrassment of offensive riches and turn in the perfect preparation for next weekend's North London Derby.
