An Arsenal Podcast full of banter, laughs, and silly games.
5.32: “Toxic Positivity plus Dan” | The Gooners Podcast
Arsenal are the kings of the world and the best team in history since Boxing Day. To discuss the current state of the club are 928 podcasters, represented by Tom (@thegoonertalktv), Dan (@Danarsenal87), Eoin (@eoinyoungAFC) and Mike (@goonerspodmike) to discuss the club’s progress and talk about how cool each other are. The show is fun and descends into some hilarious stories and banter that you won’t want to miss, unless you do.
5.31: #ARSNEW 3-0 Live Game Watch
It’s a continuation of Arsenal’s clear ascendency to winning the Treble – does it matter that the game is 90 minutes when you dominate 45 of them that way? Auba gets back on track with a brace on the pitch, and hits the toilet target off the pitch in the waning minutes of the game. Mike, Eoin, and Wayne (with a brief prison escape from Andy) watch the game together and talk about all of the other issues surrounding the club. Spoiler: DO NOT WATCH if you don’t want to know who wins!
530: “Nothing Bad Ever Happens v Palace” | Elliot Smith @yankeegunner of @arsenalvpodcast
It’s always a fun pod when Elliot aka @yankeegunner forgets how our last pod went and agrees to join us again. He keeps making the same mistake so we keep having him on. You’ll want to navigate the internet issues Elliot had because this was a fun one as we played:
“Where the F is Andy?”
“This or That Game”
“5 Personal Questions”
Arsenal have won 4 on the trot – we’re on a roll, so who better to play than a team we NEVER struggle against – Crystal FRIGGIN Palace! “You’re Not Fit to Wear the Shirt” “Mustafi the Zaha Matador” “Xhaka Acts like a D” It’s always Palace! Anyways, here’s to hoping for a turnaround and a streak to continue!
5.29: TGP Chris Wheatley Transfer Special #2 ft. @ChrisWheatley_ of Football.London
Today we welcomed Chris Wheatley, Arsenal’s correspondent for Football.London who is very close to many of the club’s developments in this January silly season! We chatted about the behind-the-scenes dynamic in the dressing room, the sagas around Willian, Pepe, Balogun – our centre-half situation, potential incoming transfers, and of we course spent time discussing the neverending drama surrounding Mesut Ozil and how much of what we see and hear from Ozil is actually FROM Ozil and how much of his brand is down to his management team. It’s a great hour with Chris!
5.28: FA Cup R4 and R5 Draw WatchAlong | “We’ve Basically Won the Cup Again”
IT’s the all-important FA Cup draw and its two draws in one as Arsenal learned their Round 4 opponent possibilities as well as the two teams we could play in round 5 should we progress. Mike is joined by Danny @The_GFP to break down the draw because we’re gonna win the FA Cup AF!
5.27: “Mesut to DC? Not So Fast” | ft. Steven Goff, Washington Post @soccerinsider + @soccerdiva Sophie
Mesut Ozil transfer rumours exploded again this week, with 3957 different rumours flying about moves to DC United, Fenerbache, CFR Cluj Young Boys and @CowdenbeathFC – in January, July, and 2025. We’re here to make some sense of the whole thing with Mike’s favourite local football journalist, the very talented @soccerinsider Steven Goff of the Washington Post who knows DC United inside and out. We talked for 20 minutes about whether this move would have made sense for either side, as it appears he’s off to Fenerbache. Segment two included some traditional TGP wackiness as Mike/Eoin discussed starting XIs for Newcastle with a brief cameo from Andy, followed by a surprise guest in the form of the one and only @soccerdiva Sophie Nicolaou for general chat and banter and discussion about grilled chicken.
