On this week's show I chat to Clive Palmer about the transfer window ahead, what the work we do will tell us about the people doing it and the direction they're pushing us in, changing some of the old guard, letting new leaders emerge, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, what our pursuit of a centre-half might mean for William Saliba, and lots more. Follow Cli…
 
In this episode we chat about the reaction to Arsenal 'missing out' on Emi Buendia, as the Norwich man is set to join Aston Villa. We examine why it felt to many like a big blow, as well as discussing the mechanics of the transfer window, the way that rumours develop via the media, how information spreads, and the way that fans react to it. We also…
 
In this episode I'm joined by Lewis Ambrose to discuss the issue of squad depth. With no Europe next season, how far do we need to trim the numbers – at times last year Arsenal had a 33+ man panel. Who might be able to provide versatility to cover in various positions? Just how much midfield recruitment do we need, taking into account some of the n…
 
In this episode we chat about the European finals that took place over the last week, instilling a winning culture at a club, being smarter with resources, what the constant centre-half rumours might mean for William Saliba's Arsenal future, Granit Xhaka's links to Roma, and how we might be able to fund transfers this summer. There are listener que…

In this episode we reflect on the 2-0 win over Brighton on the final day of the season, and bid a not particularly fond farewell to this campaign overall. Still, there were positives, such as the fans being back in the stadium, Nicolas Pepe's goals and strong end to the season, and we also chat about signing Martin Odegaard permanently, and the goo…
 
In this episode I'm joined by Chris Wheatley from Football London to discuss the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace, two goals for Nicolas Pepe, one for Gabriel Martinelli, and how both players have been used throughout this season.

In this episode we discuss Leicester's win over Chelsea in the FA Cup final; the decision made over the future of David Luiz and whether the Brazilian was a good signing for the club; Willian potentially following him out the door; we assess links to Southampton's Ryan Bertrand who has been mooted as a possible signing this summer; and wonder about…
 
In this episode I'm joined by James Benge to talk about Arsenal's 1-0 win over Chelsea in midweek, another stand-out performance from Emile Smith Rowe whose stature continues to grow, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's reaction to being taken off, and how it raised the prospect of overtaking Sp*rs (good) and the Europa Conference League (probably not so g…

In this episode we discuss the 3-1 win over West Brom which saw Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe shine, Nicolas Pepe score a belter, and Willian finally breaking his duck with a late free kick. We chat about the game, team selection mayhem, Saka finally playing at left-back, and the need to be 'ruthless' in the summer. After that there are listener…
 
In this episode I'm joined by Tim Stillman and Tayo Popoola to talk about our elimination from the Europa League after the 0-0 draw with Villarreal last night. We chat about the game, the couple of chances we had in an overall poor performance, the lack of urgency in such a big game, Mikel Arteta's subs (again), and how, over the two legs, we didn'…

In this episode we look back at Friday night's 1-0 defeat to Everton at the Emirates. Another game Arsenal shouldn't have dropped points in, but somehow found a way to do it. We chat about the Bernd Leno error and the VAR decision which overturned the awarding of the penalty given for a 'foul' on Dani Ceballos. Then attention turns to the protests …
 
In this episode I chat to Charles Watts of Goal about the crazy week we've all experienced with regard to the Super League announcement, and then collapse.

This episode is dominated by Arsenal's involvement in the proposed European Super League.

In this episode we look back at the dismal 3-0 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday. We were missing key players, but that's no excuse for such a limp, lifeless performance in which we barely competed. Mikel Arteta's team selection, tactics and approach are up for discussion, and it's clear the manager got it wrong. We also chat about the impact of losi…

In this episode, we try and make sense of yesterday's extraordinary 3-3 draw with West Ham.

In this episode Arsenal's 1-0 defeat to Olympiacos is made less painful by the hilarity of Sp*rs getting knocked out of the Europa League despite taking a two goal lead into their second leg. After laughing at that, we talk about our game, Mikel Arteta's post-game bug bear, Aubameyang's misses, Martin Odegaard, a sighting of the lesser-spotted Gabr…

In this episode, it's a very goodly morning as we revel in the 2-1 win in the North London derby. After falling behind to a sheer fluke of a goal, Martin Odegaard equalised and Alexandre Lacazette's second half penalty secured the points. We chat about the collective performance, some very good individual ones, the absence of Pierre-Emerick Aubamey…
 
Arsenal's 3-1 win over Olympiacos in the Europa League was a great result, with three brilliant away goals, yet why did Mikel Arteta have a face like thunder afterwards? Could it because we gave away another stupid goal? Yes, yes it was. We discuss this damaging habit we need to shake off as quickly as possible, before we chat about the positives f…
 
In this episode we discuss the 1-1 draw with Burnley on Saturday. After a strong start Arsenal failed to make the most of their dominance, and a Granit Xhaka error saw the home side equalise. We analyse that mistake, how it impacted the performance, and chat about a game that we should won even aside from that. There were missed chances, a ridiculo…
 
In this episode we enjoy what was a very nice surprise – a 3-1 win over Leicester. Given the team rotation, with six changes, and some big names not starting, it looked more difficult on paper, and even more so when we conceded another early goal. However, the Arsenal response was excellent, and we chat about the goals we scored, a set-piece routin…
 
On this episode I'm joined by Ryan Hunn and Andrew Allen to discuss our last-gasp 3-2 win over Benfica in the Europa League.

We then chat the two goals for Pierre-Emerick Auba…
 
In this episode we look back on the 1-0 defeat to Man City on Sunday. Losing to a team as good as that isn't a surprise, but we explore the sense of frustration afterwards and what else might be informing it. We chat about the team selection, Mikel Arteta's changes, and the early lapse in concentration which cost us the goal that won City the game.…
 
In this episode we look back at the 1-1 draw with Benfica in the Europa League on Thursday night.

In this episode we go over the 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday. We chat about the early goal we conceded, where the blame goes, and the fact we still had basically the whole match to find a goal but didn't. Are defensive errors being exacerbated by a lack of attacking efficiency? We go through key moments the game, Villa's rotational fouling,…
 
On this week's show I'm joined by Charles Watts of goal to talk about how Arsenal might react to the midweek defeat to Wolves.

In this episode we chat about the 0-0 draw with Man Utd at the Emirates on Saturday evening. A draw was probably a fair result in the end, but there were some encouraging aspects to the performance – not least the ability to deal without three very important players. We talk about missed chances at both ends, another clean sheet for the Gunners, th…
 
On this week's show I'm joined by Phil Costa to talk about the loan signing of Martin Odegaard. What can Arsenal expect from the Norwegian international? Where does he fit into the team? Can he play with Emile Smith Rowe? And more, including thoughts on the January transfer window, our recent form, and Thomas Partey. Then, ahead of Saturday's game …

On this week's show I'm joined by football correspondent for CBS, James Benge. We begin by chatting about post-match interviews, and why so many of them are bland and uninteresting. Is it the players, the questions, the strange timing of these interviews, the media landscape in which they're carried out, or a combination of all of those things. We …
 
In this episode we discuss the 3-0 win over Newcastle at the Emirates on Monday. The Gunners produced a much better second half to ensure the win and a fifth successive clean sheet.

In this episode we look back at the frustrating 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace at the Emirates on Thursday.

Nevertheless, a…
