Post-ManUre: Scrapfest

We're not exactly sure what a "scrapfest" is in footballing terms, but whatever it is we're sure it accurately describes the spectacle that is two sub-par teams like Arsenal and Manchester United hacking up a football pitch for 90 minutes as they make straightforward tasks like kicking a round ball to a teammate look incredibly difficult. We're of course talking about Arsenal's recent 1-1 draw against their (former) arch-rivals, which unfortunately typified their average performance over a...


Post-Watford: Dumb & Ugly

2019/20 Arsenal starts looking more and more like 2018/19 Arsenal as they blow a two goal lead to rock-bottom Watford thanks to some suicidal, whipping boy defense. We'll talk Unai Emery's lack of identity and the worrying observation that this team simply looks uncoached, plus talk about Arsenal's over-reliance on the speed game and....ya' know, all the usual fun things one muses over after a disappointing Arsenal performance.


Post-Liverpool: Two Steps Forward, Three Steps Back

After so much potential shown against Newcastle and then Burnley, Arsenal revert to type against stiffer opposition and drop all three points at Anfield, capitulating to Liverpool 3-1. We'll debate the pros and cons of David Luis (now that we've seen him in action), discuss the setup vs execution debate, and try to evaluate how good Arsenal really can be in the long run when they're still capable of the same defensive lapses...


Post-Newcastle: Here We Go

After a mad but satisfying transfer market dash, Arsenal get off the blocks in the Premier League with an efficient 1-nil road win against Newcastle thanks to an Auba goal and a solid performance by up-and-comers Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock. We'll give our grade to the summer transfer dealings, discuss where this compares to previous summer business, evaluate the long-term inclusion of players like Willock and Nelson based on the Newcastle win, as well as bemoan the rise of football's...


Post-Europa Final: A Sad But Fitting Conclusion

Arsenal appropriately end their 2018/19 campaign with a second half whimper as they eventually concede a four-goal-shellacking to their superior cross-town rivals Chelsea. We'll review the career of Jose Antonio Reyes, who tragically passed over the weekend, before touching on Unai Emery's potential for change, squad rebuilding, and generally making the summer a bit more hopeful than it currently looks here on June 2...


Post-EPL: Could’ve Been Worse, Could’ve Been A Lot Better

Arsenal just manages to squeak out one last win (away from home even!) to finish out their Premiership campaign as they see off Burnley 3-1 at Turf Moor. We’ll take this win with a pinch of salt as we look back on Arsenal’s promising spells throughout the 2018/19 season and give you the best, the worst, the most wankerish, the most sell-worthy, the most indispensable of a very very up-and-down first season* for Unai Emery… (*Joel wants you to know he’s really sorry for forgetting stuff at...


Post-Brighton: Out With a Whimper

Arsenal follow up their Europa League comeback win by falling back into their sputtering Premiership form, drawing 1-1 to Brighton at home in another lackluster offensive display. We'll catch up with Arsenal match day commentator Dan Roebuck to chronicle Arsenal's downward trajectory at home, evaluate Aaron Ramsey's 11 year legacy and gauge optimism as the club prepares (we hope) for some major summer restructuring...


Post-Leicester: Beating a Dead Horse

Things go from bad, to worse, to downright pathetic over a three game stretch where Arsenal bank precisely zero points and leak no less than *NINE* goals in very winnable fixtures. We'll discuss to what extent is Emery's managerial style taking a toll on his players, discuss the pedigree of said players and where it all went pear-shaped for Arsenal's top four ambitions...


Post-Everton: Away Woes

Arsenal's away-from-home nerves yield yet another dismal performance as they allow the oldest Premier League goalscorer to dispatch them at Goodison Park. We'll evaluate how big a dent this puts in the Gunner's St. Totteringham's Day hopes plus re-evaluate the amount of poise this squad really has as they lay another away egg...


Post-Man U Live Show: Cometh the Hour

Arsenal strike when the iron is most-definitely hot, beating Man U at home to ensure all their top four rivals drop precious points. We discuss how exactly Arsenal made their own luck, gutsy starting lineups, Maitland-Niles' unorthodox coming of age and how Xhaka can essentially turn any ball into a Jabulani...


Post-Sp*rs: Sour Draw

Arsenal's good week comes to a slightly dissatisfying and anti-climactic end as they get pegged back (controversially!) by Sp*rs to finish 1-1 in the North London Derby. We'll take time to talk over Emery's masterclass of lineup decision making, the Sokratis Method, the hard-yet-still-soft science that is offside as well as some Bournemouth fun thrown in for good measure...


Post-Southampton: #CleanSheets

Arsenal string together two (extremely!) rare clean sheets to revitalize their Europa League campaign and possibly their Premiership top four aspirations as well, comfortably thumping BATE Borisov before cruising past Southampton in the league. We'll talk Ozil's improvement and whether or not it can be sustainable, Lacazette's quiet domination and the squad's momentum as it improves its position on two fronts...


Post-Huddersfield: Limping to Victory

An expected loss against a good team is followed by a (maybe) unexpectedly bad win against a crap team as Arsenal continue to scrap their way through a dismal new year. We'll attempt to pinpoint the cause of the squad's disconnect between midfield and frontline, talk indirect midfield play and flirt with the idea of bringing back Ozil for an outside chance at some precious momentum...


Post-Chelsea: Clutch Stuff

Arsenal win big when the chips are down in a heartening 2-nil thriller against the oil barons at the Emirates. We’ll discuss the positives of actually playing your heart out, debate just how boring Chelsea’s offense was plus touch on Sven Mislintat’s departure and wonder whether or not Ozil can ever post enough weight-lifting selfies to get back into the starting lineup…


Post-Blackpool: Back to Winning Ugly

After a rough December, Unai Emery's men start the new year off with a bang by putting four past an impotent Fulham and easing past Blackpool on the road. We'll discuss the youth power lineup, why Arsenal still look rickety plus gauge the trade-in value of one Mesut Ozil for ohhhh, two-three players who actually give a rat's in the January transfer window...


Post-Burnley: Physical Stuff

Arsenal stutter slightly with a (meaningless!) loss to Sp*rs in the League Cup before bulldozing their way past an elbowy Ashley Barnes and Burnley. We'll get in touch with The Big Diag's Sam Limbert for input on these two aggro-filled home matches, all the latest Ozil and Ramsey rumors and how much more Emery can shuffle a very very makeshift defense before January...


Post-Huddersfield: Still Unbeaten

Arsenal squander the lead twice against Man U in midweek before eking out a win over a jammy, fouly Huddersfield side at home. We'll hit up Arsenal match day commentator Dan Roebuck for some insight what went wrong at Old Trafford, get his take on why Torreira relishes the defensive midfield role and even harken back to the North London derby to see if it ranks as a "signature" win at the Emirates...


Post-Sp*rs: Spuds Spanking

Arsenal emerge from the international break with a scrappy win, a comfy win, and a downright blood-and-thunder derby win to silence the doubters and extend their unbeaten run even further. We'll discuss Unai Emery's killer instinct, why it may actually unhinge the other team to sub at halftime, the power of big wins for this new squad and generally all the feel-good moments of the Tottenham win...


Post-Interlull #3: Define Progress

With nothing else to do other than watch the US Men's National Team get shellacked by England, we'll talk through Arsenal's roundabout defensive progress, when exactly a marquee win will come Emery's way and our players of the season thus far...


Post-Liverpool: Touché

Arsenal do just enough to put away Blackpool in the League Cup before drawing 1-1 against Liverpool in their first real benchmark Premiership game in a long time. We'll discuss the midfield's continued coming-of-age storyline, decide which side had the worse keeper and riskier defense on the day and generally pick out points of encouragement from Arsenal's ability to fight back...
