Post-West Brom: Bad Day Cliché

Don't worry, Jonas Olsson has personally checked the new pod: enjoy a slip-free episode via iTunes, the raw RSS feed or our archive. Promise.

Arsenal find themselves down to the bare bones in defensive midfield within the space of just 60 minutes as they eventually slump to a 2-1 defeat at the Hawthorns. We'll pick over the broader ramifications of Francis Coquelin's costly injury as well as analyze the finer details of a not-so-fine away display from Arsene Wenger's men, plus discuss penalty-taking conspiracies, the Alexis-Giroud conundrum and unveil an "Edible Birds" Thanksgiving contest...

Post-Sp*rs: Spreading It Thin

Get this incredibly in-demand podcast about a loss to Bayern and a draw against Sp*rs while you still can from iTunes, the raw RSS feed or our archive.
The cracks begin to show in the Gunners' depth chart as Arsenal are first embarrassed at Bayern before scraping a draw at home to cross-town rivals and sometimes-footballers Tottenham Hotspur. Helping us determine where all our defenders went, if Santi Cazorla's short legs get tired quicker and whether Arsenal are coming undone by an over-reliance on certain types of players will be returning guest Jon Shay of Woolwich 1886, plus last week's surprisingly dated trivia answer revealed and a member of the genus species "incompetent idiot ref" for the Wanker of the Week...

Post-Swansea: We Only Need 45 Minutes

Well, we failed: the pod is 47 minutes and 56 seconds, so there goes that theme. Anyway you can download it from iTunes, the raw RSS feed or our archive.

Arsenal take one in the gut from the Owls in midweek before finally bringing back the champagne football in the 2nd half against Swansea to run away 3-nil winners in the Premiership on Saturday, so naturally we'll discuss Joel Campbell's right-wing staying power, offer up the usual wintertime injury speculation and see if we can't finally get "Peak Ozil" submitted into the dictionary. And to round out the show we've also got belated/useless Halloween costume tips and some tricky North London Derby trivia...

Post-Everton: Super Mesut Oval

Always sing when you're winning. And download the podcast....from iTunes, the raw RSS feed or our archive.

The Gunners add to their already-impressive run of results with marquee victories over Bayern Munich and then Everton at home, leaving us to wonder if the sky really is the limit for Arsene Wenger's squad and when exactly Alexis Sanchez will get a rest. Helping us answer these tough questions (plus a few significantly easier ones) will be returning guest and Arsenal America contributor Chris Jenkins, plus we'll discuss the Giroud/Walcott ultimate striker amalgam and revisit the Morten Gamst Pedersen Worst Dive Ever award...
