    January? More like Banuary if you ask us. It's been such a poor month for Arsenal FC that the entire thing should be struck from the calendar forever more. Just start with February from now on. We talk about the games that happened and the various ignominious exits from cup competitions and it's all so grim Alex didn't even show up. Enjoy it.

    101: From eden to hell

    Well, at least we didn’t get tonked. The almost ludicrously eventful New Year’s Day game against Man City is our sole topic of conversation this week. We applaud the performance, dissect the decision making, and consider what could’ve been as Albert ‘Lord’ Stuivenberg and nameless handsome man so very nearly steer us to victory over the runaway league leaders. Oh, and Stuart Attwell gets a mention or two.

    100: 100th episode special

    We made it. Unlike Prince Philip and the England cricket team, we’ve actually gone and reached a century. 100 episodes of highs, lows, anthems, crests, sacks, superleagues and sighing. What a ride. To celebrate this milestone, we invited fellow Gooner and full-time pod guru Adam Richardson over to host a bumper end of year Arsenal quiz for the ages (yes, there are anagrams). So, pick up a pen and play along. Let’s separate the protagonists from the Primoracs and see out 2021 in style. Thanks so much for listening to the show these last few years. Your support has been immense. Happy New Year!

    The Process. We’ve all trusted it. Wholly, and from minute one. Taken it right into our hearts, minds, bodies, and even souls (if they exist). Thomas Aquinas (1225 to 1274) understood the soul to be the first actuality of the living body. Thomas Partey (1993 onwards) was unavailable for comment. And so, with our club captain banished from first team duties with a nasty case of the non-negotiables, Arteta’s Arsenal have arrived in that most coveted of all the league placings: fourth. Just in time for the season of goodwill. How’s that for Christmas spirit?

    98: Doom and gloom shed

    Yet another Merseyside mauling is the main matter for discussion this week, as we morosely examine the 4-0 loss to Liverpool. Elsewhere, Tom talks us through the giddy glitz and glamour (Boro Primorac, anyone?) of the Arsène Wenger film premiere, while Dan’s ever-bulging sack rounds out another episode.

    97: Old man smarts

    Ten games unbeaten and everything in the AFC garden is rosy, even when those bastard hornets fly round and try to sting everything in sight and then get their own crusty, old rose man to try and deadhead all our wonderful daffodils and dandelions and chrysanthemumunums. Anyway, we beat Watford 1 nil. We talk about that, the impact of Lacazette, Tomiyasu’s tenacity, and dream January and summer signings. It’s a really nice time.

Could be me and my mates

Relatable, could be me and my mates, low key, good chat.

No cunty loudmouths or braggarts here, just some Gooners having a laugh.

Love the pod, well done 👍

A breath of fresh air

I really love this podcast. It's a good mix of analysis, banter, humor, anecdotes and great art from three friends who love the Arsenal. A friend of mine from our local Gooner family in Detroit told me about them and I've looked forward to each episode ever since. God willing I'll meet them in the flesh one day to have a pint and take in a match. Well done lads! Up the Gunners!!
