Post-Leicester: Baby Steps

August 21st, 2016

Who are we kidding, "baby steps?" Arsenal needed a massive leap when it came to their outfield chemistry and transfer policy, and unfortunately the second week of the new Premiership season gave them neither as they drew nil-nil to Leicester (has anyone told you they're last season's champions?!) and added just as many players to their roster. We'll discuss/debate/pull our hair out over what monstrosity could possibly be beneath the iceberg tip that is Arsenal's transfer embargo plus debate non-existent Theo Walcott stats and whether or not we really give a rip about Rob Holding's potential, plus offer up the easiest prize trivia contest ever…

Post-Liverpool: Makeshift, Makeshift Arsenal

August 14th, 2016

Arsenal start off in a way in which we really hope they don't mean to continue as they lose another home opener, this time to Jurgen Klopp's rampant Liverpool side. Our man in the ground -- Sam Limbert of The Big Diag -- will give us his on-hand account of Arsenal's inexperienced center back duo, plus help us debate the questionable merit of waiting to purchase so late in the transfer window and pick over the few positives of Arsenal's three goal offense...

April 17th, 2016

The pressures of playing at home prove to be too much yet again for Arsenal as they again drop points from a winning position, this time to bottom of the table strugglers Crystal Palace. We'll discuss un-winning mentalities, overuse the word "microcosm" and debate whether or not Gooners can be sent to Hell for wishing for a Sp*rs Premiership title before turning our attention to the good old days of Arsenal's Invincibles, the shifting North American scouting network and how to get Arsene Wenger to write the foreword in your book with former Arsenal player and current Arsenal scout Danny Karbassiyoon.
