Post-Swansea: Parka of Solitude

January 15th, 2017

Arsenal crawl up inside their own metaphorical jacket of glumness for the opening 15 minutes against Swansea before venturing out for fresh air and a 4-nil win at the Liberty Stadium, courtesy of yet another Giroud strike, two contributions from Swansea players and an unhappy little tally from Alexis Sanchez. Offering insight into Wenger's offensive selection dilemma and Alexis' latest strop will be returning guest Chris Jenkins, plus the many stages of Arsenal games and Iwobi's dark deal with the devil known as Own Goal...


Post-Preston North End: All Over the Shop

January 9th, 2017

Arsenal turn in yet another disastrous first half performance as they completely underestimate FA Cup minnows Preston North End, only to have their cup hopes rescued by Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud (who else?) 2nd half strikes. We'll discuss whether his latest brush with death (and terrible offside traps) has really taught them anything, how exactly one goes about metering squad leadership and the Giroud's 80 minute fermentation process...


Post-Crystal Palace: Scorpion King (Sorry)

January 1st, 2017

Giroud again proves the doubters (mostly) wrong as he nabs another winning goal, this time in incredibly spectacular fashion during Arsenal's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace. Fittingly, we caught up with the Giroud-loving Elliot Smith to talk Arsenal's evolving offense, resting concerns during fixture congestion and why everyone's afraid of Bournemouth, plus Top 5 goal lists and Bob Bradley's nearly-impeccable Britishisms...


Post-West Brom: Tony Can’t Handle Giroud | Live Show

December 27th, 2016

Why Arsenal -- while frustrating -- weren't actually that bad against West Brom, Giroud's wet cement offense & the best sloth-turned-roadrunner goalkeepers Arsenal have ever faced, all covered on this impromptu but incredibly satisfying production...really...


Post-City: Shot in the Foot

December 18th, 2016

Arsene Wenger's side Arsenals it up just in time for the holidays as they drop not one but two losses on their Premiership resume to send themselves spiraling down the league table. Giving us some perspective on these two untimely losses will be HeisenBergkamp/Martin Tomlinson, plus weirdly successful managers against Wenger, Arsenal's recent history of back-to-back league losses and the squad's outlet problem all analyzed...


Post-Stoke: Thank You for Beating Stoke

December 11th, 2016

Arsenal celebrate the passing of November as they turn on the swagger against Basel to seal top spot in their Champions League group, then soldier through an always-tasty encounter with the miserable neanderthals known as "Stoke" to briefly move to the top of the Premiership table. Helping us try to find a home for Lucas Perez, quantify Lee Mason's haplessness and look ahead to Everton and Man City will be returning guest Garry aka the Twin Cities Gooner, plus the risky world of signing world class players and more...


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

November 27th, 2016

More draws abound in midweek as Arsenal allow PSG to come from behind to spoil their Champions League plans of topping the group before dispatching Bournemouth in a late rally to return to winning ways in the Premiership. We'll discuss the resurgence of long passing pro Granit Xhaka, things to be/not to be thankful for in November and defensive problems against rich French clubs, along with some unbeaten trivia...


Post-Man U: Too Timid to Win

November 20th, 2016

Arsenal return from the international break with a whimper as they sit firmly on the back foot for 88 minutes before rescuing a point courtesy of that man again, Olivier Giroud. We'll discuss where this effort ranks among Arsenal's stinkers so far this season and try to make sense of some bizarre starters in the team sheet, as well as identify the newest teacher's pet at Old Trafford and unveil the latest prize trivia...


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. Helping us diagnose Arsenal's derby impotence will be Andrew of Arseblog, plus we'll talk November improvements, wonder goals and José meltdowns before unveiling Kevin Wimmer's favorite prize trivia contest...
