    91: The idiot part

    We discuss the impact that the sudden rise and fall of the Super League has had on us as fans, mulling over what lies next for both the club and ourselves as supporters. Then it’s onwards to matters far more frivolous, with a good old-fashioned deep dive into our Europa League semi-final opponents, Villarreal. Here’s hoping for a good ebening...

    We wanted to spend an hour talking about Maty Ryan’s pre-assist. Unfortunately, we were duty bound to talk about everything else that came before it as well. We discuss the disappointing 1-1 draw with Fulham, our minds still firmly set on the wonderful slaughtering of Slavia Prague. A mega session of ‘bin or keep’ rounds things out for another week (spoiler alert: we keep Maty Ryan).

    89: Infected with nonsense

    An insipid home defeat to Liverpool dominates the discourse this week, coming as it does after international break musings and a reflection on 20 years without David Rocastle. The Europa preview takes a backseat and the customary mailbag wraps things up for another episode. Episode 89. Feels somewhat fitting. RIP Rocky.

    You’d think after a manic 3-3 draw away to West Ham that we’d have nothing but laser-sharp focus for the incident-packed, riveting game itself. You’d be quite wrong. This week’s tangents include captains from the 1910s and obscure Hampshire market town flags. Unlike Arsenal, we’re nothing if not consistent.

    Good old Arsenal, we're proud to say that name. While we sing this song, we'll win the game, and in doing so we’ll banish all negative memories of ‘them’ against us. We’ll sleep soundly and peacefully. We’ll walk tall. We won’t have to grin and bear it, we’ll just grin, randomly and often, knowing that – for now at least – all is well and good in the north London footballing landscape. Because it is. Have a great week.

    86: The main culprits

    Exasperation FC does it again. We ‘assess’ the inexplicable 1-1 draw with Burnley without trying to completely lose our minds. We last about 30 seconds. After the madness at Turf Moor, we head to the mailbag for more questions on the Burnley balls up, song lyrics, and Peter Walton’s voice. It never rains but it pours.

Top banana

Saw Tom on BBC last year and have been listening since.

Tom is my favourite. He’s really funny! The lads know their stuff too. I love the artwork.

Enthusiastic fan - a good listen

I listen to a number of Arsenal podcasts and I find this one of the more enjoyable shows and comparable to the more well known and award winning shows. Good humour / banter and doesn’t contain the same amount of angst in the event Arsenal lose a game. Neither do the presenters continually hark back to the ‘good old’ Highbury days and the reigns of Wenger and Graham when we underperform. It is now a podcast I will not miss.
