Post-Brighton: Roz Runs Riot

January 26th, 2015

With top Premiership clubs falling left right and center the day before, Arsenal pick up the plaudits for simply keeping their heads and the win in a game where Tomas Rosicky absolutely ran the show. Helping us examine Brighton's initial timidity, Theo slow journey back to fitness and the hilarity of teams-not-Arsenal losing in the FA Cup will be 7amkickoff's Tim Bostelle, plus FA Cup streaks in our contest section and some more superbly-overblown predictions…

Post-Man City: Top Four Clout

January 19th, 2015

Arsenal roll back the years and exhibit some Champion-level pedigree as they beat Manchester City on their own turf in a hugely impressive, confidence-boosting 2-nil win. Helping us pinpoint the secret to the Gunners' success (*cough*defense) and heap plaudits on Santi and Co. will be Andrew of Arseblog.com, followed by your depressing "When We Spent Lots of Money in a Blizzard" transfer trivia answered and some more overly-positive predictions for Sunday's FA Cup trip to Brighton...

Post-Stoke: Happy Orc Hunting

January 12th, 2015

Arsene Wenger's squad totally turns the tables on their woeful reverse fixture in December by humbling an already hapless Stoke side 3-nil at the Emirates with the help of an almost-full strength squad (and Alexis Sanchez). Looking ahead with us to Man City, debating some suddenly-tough squad selection dilemmas and rehashing Sunday's fluid performance will be Arsenal commentator and presenter Dan Roebuck...

Post-Hull: Happy Not-New Year

January 5th, 2015

Arsenal drag their Jekyll and Hyde Premiership/FA Cup form into the new year with a sobering loss on the road to Southampton followed by a fairly comfortable win against 2013 FA Cup Final foes Hull City, so joining us to discuss the defensive components worth salvaging -- along with the itinerary for a new, improved Gooner Gras 2015 -- will be Duncan and Colin from the Krewe of Arsenal, plus the Best Arsenal Moment of 2014 prize handed out and nary a referee Wanker of the Week nominee in sight, for once…

Post-West Ham: Europa League Six-Pointer!

December 29th, 2014

Arsenal get into the giving spirit as they donate two losses to their London neighbors, winning narrowly over QPR and then West Ham just two days later. Joining us to marvel over the power of actual squad rotation, Coquelin's shielding ability and Rosicky's ultra-efficient conversion rate is returning guest Elliot Smith, plus our own favorite moments of 2014 and an incredibly biased Wanker of the Week...

Post-Liverpool: Gain Lead, Check, Shoot Foot, Check

December 22nd, 2014

No one loses a vital lead like Arsenal: so it proved once again as the Gunners conceded an equalizer off a setpiece in the dying minutes of their Premiership showdown with Liverpool. This time we're left to make sense of the usual nonsense all on our own, so between identifying the especially fatigued players in the squad and praying Charlie Austin doesn't set his own personal goalscoring record against us on Boxing Day, we'll temporarily inject some good cheer into the proceedings with an easy-as-pie, Best of 2014 contest…

Post-Newcastle: Cheeky As You Like

December 15th, 2014

The yo-yo campaign continues as Arsenal respond to last week's disappointment by pummeling a hapless Galatasaray in Istanbul then a hungover Newcastle at the Emirates, leaving us to wonder how exactly we can get in Liverpool's collective head before Sunday. Helping us pick through the wonder goals and umpteen deputizing centerbacks will be returning guest Martin Tomlinson, plus some appropriately frustrating trivia on everyone's favorite mohawked center forward...

Post-Stoke: Old Habits and All That

December 8th, 2014

Arsenal's run of good form continued with an impressive win against Southampton at home only to evaporate within seconds of the starting whistle at the Britannia as the Gunners turned in a catastrophic 1st half performance that eventually saw them humiliated 3-2. Helping us make some sense over Arsenal's schizophrenic defensive showings and Arsenal's fading title (and top four?) aspirations will be Jordan Wiebe of the Fresno Gooners, plus crazy fast goal trivia and the Wanker of the Week briefly, briefly resurrected for the Orcs and Anthony Taylor...

Post-West Brom: Two’s a Streak

December 1st, 2014

Arsenal discover an oasis of wins at the end of a torrid November as they ease past a meek Dortmund and shutout West Brom on their way to a fixture-filled festive period. Joining us to discuss whether or not Arsenal’s defense reached their coming of age moment this week and debate the merit of the latest “Wenger Out” banner will be returning guest Garry the Twin Cities Gooner, plus some suitably rinky-dink fanfare for the Arsenal Review USA 5th Anniversary trivia contest...

Post-Man U: We Do It To Ourselves

November 24th, 2014

Man U's law of "anything that can go wrong for Arsenal will go wrong" comes into effect for something like the 2,634th time as the Gunners pull off the impossible feat of losing at home to the weakest Manchester United side in decades, leaving us to wonder (again) if the current regime will ever be able to stop the rot against top clubs. Helping the podcast map out the changes in the rivalry over the years and answer the tough questions like who or what is responsible for Arsenal's dearth of on-field character will be Jon Shay of Woolwich 1886 and the Chicago Gooners, plus some tentative, *tentative* predictions for the midweek showdown against Borussia Dortmund…
