How Can Arsenal Fix Their Attack?
It’s Patrick van Straaten and Chris Hamill on the podcast this week, as Patrick gets to dedicate another show to Arsenal Football Club. This time though, it’s a look at their attack, as Mikel Arteta’s side face an uncertain summer. As it stands, they’ll have no natural strikers come August, so the first question is about whether or not Alexandre Lacazette has earned himself a new deal. Then there’s who they might bring in - Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo are the two names being majorly linked with the Gunners, but the likes of Tammy Abraham and Ivan Toney also get mentioned. And what about the future of Emile Smith Rowe - is his Arsenal future in doubt? Enjoy!

This week on the podcast, Patrick van Straaten is joined by Joe Thomlinson and Henry Hill to discuss where some of football’s biggest free agents might land. No Kylian Mbappe talk, as he is inevitably off to Real Madrid, but might PSG find a replacement for free? Paulo Dybala is confirmed as leaving Juventus, so could move to France, although Manchester City have also been linked. Apparently Franck Kessie to Barcelona is all but confirmed, but where does he fit in that midfield - does Xavi need to sell someone? Then there’s new rumours that Juve are the front runners for Antonio Rudiger, whilst the likes of Andre Onana and Jesse Lingard could also find themselves without a club come July. They round off the pod with some Frank Lampard chat - it’s not got off to the best of starts, has it? Enjoy!
What's Next For Chelsea? ft. Nizaar Kinsella
It is a special one this week, as Zac Djellab takes the reins for a discussion all things Chelsea alongside our very own Dougie Critchley and special guest Nizaar Kinsella. It’s mostly a discussion about what is next for the club after Roman Abramovich put the Blues up for sale - who’s in the race and how might they be run in the future? There’s the consortium led by a Swiss billionaire who has no experience in sport, Chelsea fan Nick Candy and his group of investors, as well as the Saudi Media Group, who have no connection with the same regime that bought Newcastle United last year, none whatsoever, absolutely nothing, honest! There’s also the possibility that the new owners haven’t even been mentioned yet, and regardless, how it could spell the end for the likes of Marina Granovskaia in West London. There’s no doubt about it - this is your ultimate Chelsea situation debrief. Enjoy!
Why A Premier League Giant Are Favourites For Relegation
Patrick van Straaten is this week joined by Chris Hamill to take a look at the mess that is the Premier League relegation battle. At the time of recording, there were five teams who were nervously looking over their shoulder as well as the three currently occupying the drop zone, although Leicester City’s win over Burnley on Tuesday proves they were never in danger. The pair condemn Norwich City and Watford to the Championship for next campaign, but who will join them? Newcastle United are the only in-form side in the bottom half, so they should be safe, right? Brentford are sliding and sliding, whilst Leeds United can’t stop anyone scoring against them - they’re on pace for 90 goals conceded this season. Burnley always seem to pull something out the bag, and Everton…well, Frank Lampard’s side couldn’t actually get relegated, could they? It’s an actual possibility. Enjoy!
Which Players Deserve An England Call-Up?
After last week’s heated debate, it only made sense to bring Patrick van Straaten and Henry Hill back together for this week’s episode. Joined by the supposedly-Scottish Dougie Critchley, the trio cast their eye over the England squad ahead of the squad announcement next month. Or rather, they took a look on the edges at who Gareth Southgate could be looking to introduce into the Three Lions set up. Do Wolves’ Max Kilman and Brighton’s Adam Webster deserve a nod over the ever-improving Fikayo Tomori? In midfield, Henry backs James Ward-Prowse and Conor Gallagher over Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey, despite his recent impressive form. And going forward, should Tammy Abraham be called up again, or does West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen finally get that phonemail after being one of the Premier League’s form players in recent weeks? Enjoy!
