Does Arteta Have To go? (A Podcast)

Good morning all. Today @shotta_gooner and I look back at the Burnley game and try to work out how the club can climb out of the hole we find ourselves in. We have a novice manager that has landed us in a situation that was unimaginable for over two decades. but is there an exit […]

Burnley Could Sink Arteta

Good morning all. This evening we play Burnley at the home of football, and I can’t stress how massive a game it’s become for Mikel Arteta and the fanbase. Burnley have had a terrible start to the season. They have won one game and only scored 5 goals, while conceding 18. But despite their form […]

This Is A Test Of Belief, More Than A Derby Even.

Good morning all. This afternoon at 4.30 we kick off in a game that seems to have taken on a life of it’s own, a bigger game for the fan base and the manager than the huge game it normally is. We are in 14th position after 10 games, the measure many use when they […]

Confidence In Arteta Is Plummeting.

In this edition, Shotta and Blackburn George, @Arseblagger, observe how confidence in Arteta and the football club is falling rapidly after a bloody home defeat to Wolves.  We are one of very few Arsenal pod-casters, if any, who are willing to take a critical view of some of the recent developments on- and off-the-field at […]

This Mid Table Clash Is Huge.

Hello people. This evening at 7.15 we kick off against a Wolves side that are worryingly consistent in their play. They inevitable play reasonably well. Results for them vary of course, but they know how they play and they normally action their style quite well. The problem is that a decent team , playing quite […]

Mesut Ozil, A Lost Magician

I have long held the view that the litmus test of a person’s understanding of football is their appreciation of Mesut Ozil. It’s the gold standard of tests, if you don’t rate him, you’re an idiot. There is no option B, no mitigation and I accept no arguments otherwise. So how has he become “lost” […]

Leeds! Leeds! Leeds!

It’s been a long two weeks since Villa came to our house and gave us a good spanking but it does seem a lot longer. In that time we have had players playing 3 international games, catching covid while on duty and on holiday, having punch ups at training, Arteta searching for deep throat and […]

Mid Table Clash.

Good morning all. A weird kick off time. 7.15 P.M. on Sunday evening, sees Arsenal hosting Aston Villa in a mid table clash. It’s 9th vs 10th with the visitors being in front on goal difference only. We have conceded only 7 goals, that’s great, until you consider we have only scored 9, that’s not […]

Are We United For United?

We visit our one time rivals for the title in Manchester today. Up the M6 full of swagger and confidence or fear and trepidation, depending on what side of the fence you currently occupy. It’s not a place we have had much success at in recent years but it’s not a place they have had […]
